This calendar is for people interested in aligning themselves with the regenerative power of death/rebirth, the dance between darkness/light and the flow from fullness to emptiness, through our innate connection to our moon’s cycles.
Attune yourself by moving in a new way from day to day, from new to full and back again, for all of 2019. Rather than confining our sense of time to a linear and unnaturally structured Gregorian calendar, we invite you to step into a new relationship where we can acknowledge the different phases of ourselves and life that happen within and without time.
Each of the 13 calendar pieces contains a full lunar cycle: starting with the new moon, growing in light day by day in the waxing phase until arriving at the full moon, and then fading back into the darkness of the waning phase until we arrive again at the new moon to begin another cycle.
The art for each cycle reflects a beauty that we can be inspired by:
“Within each piece I wanted to capture the moods, colors, depths, layers, textures, and magic that following the lunar rhythms closely can bring into our lives. Ultimately, each painting is an ode to the cosmic and ethereal nature of our moon. She guides us through our own inner rhythms and transformations, which can at times be grounding and at other times completely expansive. “ ~ Melissa Parke Rousseau
