This is the perfect time to plant ideas, begin new projects, set intentions and proactively follow your dreams. The Waning part of the lunar cycle kicks off with probably the most recognisable of the cycle; the Full Moon. The Full Moon is when we release, forgive and let go of the things which are no longer serving us.
It was funny, we had always spoke about the moon at home when I was growing up, so subconsciously I think I had been working with them most of my life, but I really got interested in the different phases and how they affected me energetically when I was in corporate burnout, and was willing to take any assistance I could to help manage my energy better. Friends and work colleagues were always curious about what I would do for each moon, so I started an email group of about five people, outlining some of the different practices. Above everything else, the lunar cycle holds me accountable.
Every new moon I set intentions, every full moon I release, forgive and surrender. If I need some momentum behind a project I work on it during the waxing phases. Totally manifested that book deal btw.

I get about 40 conscious individuals at every Lunar Nights event, raising their vibrations, setting intentions and manifesting their future. Our customer reviews The rich surety of detail that paints the background of this story is so seamlessly integrated into the events, that there is no problem for a reader to enter that foreign age and place.
The bravery of the heroine, her own surprise to hear herself speak from a place of inner strength and act from a place that she hadn't been aware of, these things build a character that is continually fascinating to the reader. Surprises kept me glued to the story, and the journey kept me intrigued. Highly recommended read. I loved this book. Book ratings by Goodreads.

The Wayward Moon
The story starts off in Galilee, the year A. While cleaning out Rahel's home, a son of her's stumbles upon pages and pages of writing that pertain to the life of his mother. It's a life totally different from the one he was led to be Janice Weizman writes a terrific historical fiction novel. It's a life totally different from the one he was led to believe she had when she was younger. Realizing that she could write and had different thoughts than expected of a young Jewish woman made him wonder if she should be honored in the Jewish tradition or not.
After requesting his other brother's opinion, he lends him the writings to read, and so starts the tale of Rahel as a young Jewish woman preparing to meet the one she will be betrothed to. Unfortunately, the day before the meeting is to take place Rahel's father, a physician, is killed in their home and her sophisticated life changes forever.
This tale covers it all-Rahel's life with Muslims, monks at a monastery, working in a Christian home, and helping out in a Jewish home. So many trials and tribulations she has to endure in her travels, but she doesn't give up. Jun 23, Hope rated it really liked it. Loved the idea of how this book plays out, which I won't give away specifics about, except to say that when you think you know someone it might not be the whole truth of her life and experiences.
This follows the story of a Jewish girl in Bagdad and includes Rahel's pondering differences between what she believes about her faith compared to what she finds muslims and christians believe as she survives the adventures of her life which play out following a murder.

Least favorite part of the book is the sexual violence she experiences; favorite parts are her moments of awakening realization that she can survive and make her own choices separate from what EVERYONE thinks she should do to redeem and save herself.

Nov 17, Yosef Gotlieb rated it it was amazing. In her depiction of the life of a young, ninth century Jewish woman attempting to navigate the perils of the religiously and communally fractious Middle East of that time, Janice Weizman succeeds in richly describing a period and an individual. Rahel's solitary journey speaks to timeless issues: claiming one's place as an individual, as a woman and as a member of a vulnerable minority under harsh circumstances and uncompromising social strictures.
The importance of learning to trust and be true In her depiction of the life of a young, ninth century Jewish woman attempting to navigate the perils of the religiously and communally fractious Middle East of that time, Janice Weizman succeeds in richly describing a period and an individual.

A rich, gorgeous book. The period details are phenomenal, but the greatest strength of this novel, which is structured as a traditional coming-of-age story, is in showing how for young girls in certain societies, "coming of age" is ultimately a tragic outcome. Oct 11, Judih Weinstein Haggai rated it it was amazing. Wonderful story. Should be made into a movie. Dec 03, Ann Cooper added it.
