I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, it was very interesting to be introduced to the many ways in which the moon affects our daily life. Having had an interest in spiritual topics for several years now, I have know that the moon has an affect on our emotions and certain body functions, especially in women. However, it was an eye-opener to read that it plays a role in every aspect of our lives, ranging from health, to food, through to the building of our homes. As a result of this ...more

Just like the moon affects the ocean tides, it also affects our bodies. This book goes into detail about how we can order our life in harmony with, not against, nature. For example, the waning moon detoxifies, dries, consolidates, and prompts to action. The waxing moon supplies, absorbs, gathers strength, and prompts to rest and recovery. Therefore, it is ideal to order your life accordingly. The sad thing is, I refer to this book more than I look at the moon and commune with nature, which is on ...more

Much less about the moon and much more a book about were home remedies for aliments. I first started to become skeptical when it said that to cure bad eyesight you should go to a chiropractor, and skipped through the rest of it. I was looking forward to what they would say about diet, but when they said that a meal of bread and butter "made with love" was healthier for you than a healthy salad, I gave up.

I thought this book would be fascinating. It was, I suppose, in parts...
But there were religious references to 'God' etc that I personally, just didn't think correlated with the concept of lunar cycles. And there were also suggestions that sickness can be directly attributed to a person and their life choices. While I understand that some life choices may contribute to a person becoming seriously ill, I'm not sure that I was comfortable with the blame game. Especially not when it comes to illnes

I don't know, this book is full with complex procedures and suggestions. It doesn't go in depth about the WHY is the moon influential. Rather, this book just tell you the do's and don'ts. This fact alone is frustrating!
Plus you need to be living somewhere in a jungle 500 years ago in order to make use of the suggestion in this book.
Nonetheless, I will refer back to this book as I feel is necessary to a certain topic.
The authors could have made a much simpler book without much "fillers" of word

Recommends it for: people interested in lunar cycles
This is the second book about the moon calendar and its use by Johanna Paungger and Thomas Poppe. It refers more to the influence of the moon to health and healing and I really try to put into practice their suggestions as much as possible to keep my health. If youre interested to get every day instructions what to do and what to leave you can take a look at the authors website for their daily moon calendar

Pretty darn good. A couple unanswered questions left me wondering about the validity of many claims, however... Like why would cutting your nails on a Friday matter? Seems arbitrary to use a calendar day that has nothing to do with the moon. Otherwise, lots of good good stuff in here!

I owe this knowledge to my grandfather who taught me that intuition, observation and experience are the key to many things in nature, things that cannot necessarily be explained scientifi ...more
