To me, the dark of the moon used to just mean that I didn't need an eye mask to in order to sleep deeply. But, turns out, there's more to my deep, peaceful sleep during the dark of the moon than just the lack of light.
The moon is known to influence the ocean and its tides, the flow of sap and the life force in our gardens, and the behavior of many different birds, animals, and crustaceans. I'm learning that if we choose to pay attention, it can also indicate ways that we humans can align ourselves with the rhythms and cycles of life in our efforts to bring ourselves back into harmony with nature.
