My time with We’Moon dates back almost a decade. For myself, I remember a distinct moment of delight when I met Gretchen Lawlor, the then resident astrologist for We’Moon on a beach in La Manzanilla Mexico. It was my first natal chart reading, I was 24, far from 30 but we traced the path around my Saturn’s Return, and what was in store. I still remember the number 42, as the number in which I have come into my own. Needless to say this years edition of We’Moon doesn’t disappoint. The art always infused with the calendar years as well as the astrological notes, this year seems even more detailed with the description of the houses, as well as tarot influences.
I am always a fan of any planner that starts before January 1st. To be honest, that never feels like my New Year anyway. I love that I am able to start writing before Solstice, because for me it marks at least the end of something, and the settling into that. The pages are different then the last time I have used them, and I recognize this because now, I can easily write and take notes of what’s swirling for me and that’s always a treat.
We’Moon provides a space for me to write rituals down and it waves of emotions that come through with the muse. I honor the time I take to write everyday, and once again explore the phases of year through the phases of the moon, a cyclical journey and magical time for womxn.

The tradition of gift giving at Winter Solstice arose to help keep our hearts' fires burning through the long, cold winter. This year, gift your mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, classmate, lover, co-worker, wife, friend, babysitter and dog walker with We'Moon, so they can curl up by the heart-fire with treasures that last through the seasons.

"This day of perfect equilibrium between day and night is a moment to pause, reflect on what needs attending as we cross the threshold to the waning of the year. We turn inward, measure the mood of trees on the mountain, as roots deepen and the leaves begin their litanies of surrender . . . We need to go to earth, sink our own roots deep, muse and dream. What settles deeply now, and arises after winter's austerities, will shape the newborn spring world"
