Health & Wellbeing

Have you ever wondered how a lunar calendar or diary can benefit your wellbeing?

Our health and wellbeing depends largely on how we take care of our physical body and therefore nutrition, exercise and hygiene are vital to our health and self-esteem. By using a lunar calendar to plan your detox fast and make appointments for health and beauty treatments like massages, facials, hair cuts, dental hygiene …  you can improve the effect the treatment has on your wellbeing.

For example:

  • When the Moon is waning, your body is releasing moisture and energy. Those two weeks are far better for a detox fast than the waxing phase because you take advantage of the letting go, exhale mode your body is in.
  • While the Moon is waxing your body is in absorption mode. Those two weeks are a particularly good time to eat fresh organic food rich in nutrients. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can be balanced more effectively now because your body absorbs and metabolises more effectively.
  • You also absorb toxins, stimulants and fattening foods more easily while the Moon is waxing.
  • If you suffer headaches or migraines avoid stimulants like caffeine, nicotine, red wine, cheese and chocolate while the Moon is waxing, particularly in the second quarter and at Full Moon. You could be even more specific and consider the signs Pisces and Aries.
  • Try and avoid dental treatments and vaccinations close to and at Full Moon.

The Moontime Diary 2021 not only tells you all New Moons and Full Moons, Equinoxes, Solstices, Super Moons and Eclipse Dates. It also features extensive tables for treatments and practical daily tips to help you find the best and worst times for health and wellbeing appointments.

Moontime Diary
I think the 2013 will be the 5th one I’ve had so I am more than happy to contribute to your webpage. Love the new design and detail- this one seems so much more complex! Not only do I plan events around info in the diaries but find the natural synchronicity so amazing! For example, my son will ask for a hair cut (his is out of control) and the only day the hairdresser is free is a day for “slow regrowth”. Same with gardeners, catching up with friends and internal drives to do certain things as certain times. l love it! The Moontime Diary is great! Keep up the awesome work.
