**You will receive the current Sun season and/or Full Moon book
We offer two workbooks for you to use each Sun Season. A Sun Season is a four week period when the Sun is in a specific zodiac sign. You’re probably most familiar with this period, as it determines your personal Sun sign. Each Sun Season holds one New Moon and one Full Moon. The New Moon is always in the same sign the Sun is positioned. For instance, if the Sun is in Aries, then the New Moon will also occur in Aries. The Full Moon always occurs in the opposite sign as the Sun sign. If the Sun is in Aries, the Full Moon occurs in Libra. Opposing signs sit across from each other in the sky and on the zodiac wheel.
How to use the Moon Workbooks
Working with the cosmos can help you align your energy and your life. When we tune into the Moon, the Sun, and the rest of the planets, it makes manifesting the life of our dreams easier. It also gives us a guideline on when to build energy, when to dream, and when to let go of things which no longer serve us. The Moon Workbooks were created to help you understand and harness the energy of the Moon. They guide you through the phases of the Moon and help adjust your vibration to match the cosmos.

How does the New Moon Workbook work?
TheNew Moon Workbook is actually a workbook for the entire Sun Season and the New Moon. It has been evolving over time, and we found at Spirit Daughter that many people were using this workbook throughout the entire Sun Season since that sign is the same as the New Moon. We just redesigned it this past January to make it more clear which parts are for the Sun Season and New Moon versus which parts are solely for the New Moon. There are sections for each week of the Sun Season, as well as tools which align you with that zodiac’s energy. You can begin using this book at the start of each Sun Season, or you can start using it with the New Moon. It is a personal preference. Some people prefer to use this book only on the days on and around the New Moon, which is perfectly fine. For the sections pertaining to just the New Moon, try to complete them within 72hrs of the New Moon exact. This is when the energy is the most potent, and you will feel it to a greater degree in your subtle body. It is recommended that you complete the New Moon workbook before the start of the next Sun Season.
How about the Full Moon Workbook?
The Full Moon Workbook is meant to be used on the days around the Full Moon. Again, try to complete the practices within 72hrs of the Full Moon exact. This workbook goes more in-depth in terms of practices compared to the New Moon Workbook because we simply have more energy and drive on the Full Moon. The Full Moon is a time to do the work needed to manifest the dreams planted on the New Moon. Therefore, the workbook, and the energy of the Full Moon is more intense. This work is often needed and changes with the corresponding Moon sign. For instance, the energy we work with on the Aries Full Moon is very different than the energy we work on with the Virgo Full Moon. Furthermore, the energy changes from year to year which is why each workbook is rewritten for that particular year. It is not recommended that you use last year’s workbook for this year’s Moon.

As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowledge together to take us on “a journey that is every bit as mythic as it is scientific, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise” (Elizabeth Gilbert).
Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, and as a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings—asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass—offer us gifts and lessons, even if we've forgotten how to hear their voices. In reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten its flourishing today, she circles toward a central argument: that the awakening of ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world. For only when we can hear the languages of other beings will we be capable of understanding the generosity of the earth, and learn to give our own gifts in return.

Women who Run With the Wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women. But she is an endangered species. For though the gifts of wildish nature belong to us at birth, society’s attempt to “civilize” us into rigid roles has muffled the deep, life-giving messages of our own souls.
In Women Who Run with the Wolves, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales, and stories, many from her own traditions, in order to help women reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of this instinctual nature. Through the stories and commentaries in this remarkable book, we retrieve, examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman, and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine.
Dr. Estés has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and life-giving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul.
This book is motivated by love and infused with magic-the magic that comes from understanding the profound laws of nature. It is derived from my personal and professional work with boundaries as a self-care practice. It is inspired by powerful conversations, healing shamanic journeys, and adventures in broken relationships. My personal journey with boundaries practice has been companioned by my faithful spirit helper and queen, Mountain Lion. The book began as a three-time, best-selling e-course called Boundaries Boot Camp, which has helped many people put their relationships back on track. My dream is that Boundaries & Protection will be a companion to those who carry it and that it's medicine will be integrated with application.The contents of Boundaries & Protection are not the clinical opinions of a certified expert on the subject of human psychology and behavior, but of an experience-backed, intuitive healer and teacher who loves people, life, and the gifts of Spirit as they express themselves subtly in nature. My experience with thousands of women, and professional consult have been robust teachers.Reading it, you may become aware of instances where you have violated someone's boundaries. Don't let it stop you from carrying on. Don't let it send you into a spiral of shame. You can make amends for mistakes and use this book to set things right again. The empowerment that comes from a boundaries practice lies in allowing mistakes and trusting that we have everything we need to make repairs.This book is my offering to you of golden protection through your own murky territories where clarity is desired. It is intended to help you take responsibility for how your relationships are handled, and to enjoy the process of cultivating deep intimacy.Boundaries and Protection is for healers and wise people of all traditions for great energetic boundaries and balanced relationships.
From a philosopher whose magisterial history of Western thought was praised by Joseph Campbell and Huston Smith comes a brilliant new book that traces the connection between cosmic cycles and archetypal patterns of human experience. Drawing on years of research and on thinkers from Plato to Jung, Richard Tarnas explores the planetary correlations of epochal events like the French Revolution, the two world wars, and September 11. Whether read as astrology updated for the quantum age or as a contemporary classic of spirituality, Cosmos and Psyche is a work of immense sophistication, deep learning, and lasting importance.
Richard Tarnas was born in 1950 in Geneva, Switzerland, of American parents. He grew up in Michigan, where he studied Greek, Latin, and the classics under the Jesuits. In 1968 he entered Harvard, where he studied Western intellectual and cultural history and depth psychology, graduating with an A.B. cum laude in 1972. For ten years he lived and worked at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, studying with Joseph Campbell, Gregory Bateson, Huston Smith, James Hillman, and Stanislav Grof, and later served as director of programs and education. He received his Ph.D. from Saybrook Institute in 1976. From 1980 to 1990, he wrote The Passion of the Western Mind, a narrative history of Western thought which became a best seller and continues to be a widely used text in universities throughout the world. He is the founding director of the graduate program in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, where he currently teaches. He gives many public lectures and workshops in the U.S. and abroad.

Why do we spend so much time indoors, which is not our natural habitat? Why have trends such as forest-bathing become so popular? The answer to the last question lies in the proven benefits we obtain from our connection with nature – from increased productivity to feelings of happiness and an enhanced sense of wellbeing.
For millions of years, humans developed in natural environments, in close contact with sunlight, vegetation and fresh air. But most of us spend 80-90% of our time indoors far from the environments for which we are naturally suited and in which we evolved. Skogluft’s mission is to bring a natural living environment back into your home and workplace. Based on years of research data on the impact between nature and people, gathered together by a Norwegian mechanical engineer, Jorn Viumdal, Skogluft reveals how installing a wall of easily available plants in your home environment can dramatically improve health, strengthen the immune system and increase productivity. The plants are easily available, cheap to buy and simple to look after. Here is a low-tech solution to a problem created by our increasing dependence on a world dominated by high technology. Learn the simple techniques to beautify your world and create air you can live with all year around and experience the health and wellness effects for yourself.
Visionary artist and New York Times bestselling author of The Wild Unknown Kim Krans returns with a decadently illustrated and incredibly raw graphic memoir that chronicles her multi-layered search for truth and recovery from an eating disorder and infertility in the throes of a health and wellness-obsessed culture, touching on the healing potentials of creativity and spirituality.
With pen and paper as her trusted allies, revered visionary artist, spiritual seeker, and bestselling author of The Wild Unknown, Kim Krans chronicles her deeply personal journey of recovery through drawing.
After cancelling her flight home to wellness-obsessed Los Angeles, where Krans had been secretly experiencing a debilitating eating disorder, she finds her way to an ashram and seeks spiritual and creative refuge. For forty days she relies on “drawing the feeling” as a way to realign her relationship to food, addiction, fertility, perfectionism, and the endless messaging of “never enough” echoing throughout current culture. She makes the ashram her home and embarks on the healing process through intricately hand-drawn narration of both her inner and outer worlds, cancelling forthcoming high-profile teaching obligations and international travel. Radical simplification, meditation, community, and creativity bring her through the darkest chapter of her life.
What emerges from Krans’ deeply personal undertaking is a raw and beautiful never-before-seen artists’ document that explores what it means to prioritize truth and self-discovery in a world of relentless expectations and distractions. A memoir at its heart, Blossoms and Bones is a lifeline of light and beauty, a call to embrace our creative power, and a courageous example of realigning with one’s destiny.
From the beginning of human history, individuals across cultures and belief systems have looked to the sky for meaning. The movement of celestial bodies and their relation to our human lives has been the central tenant of astrology for thousands of years. The practice has both inspired reverence and worship, and deepened our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.While modern-day horoscopes may be the most familiar form of astrological knowledge, their lineage reaches back to ancient Mesopotamia. As author Andrea Richards recounts in Astrology, the second volume in TASCHEN's Library of Esoterica series, astronomy and astrology were once sister sciences: the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid at Giza was built to align with constellations, Persian scholars oversaw some of the first observatories, and even Galileo cast horoscopes for the Medicis. But with the Enlightenment and the birth of exact science, the practice moved to places where mystery was still permitted, inspiring literature, art, and psychology, and influenced artists and thinkers such as Goethe, Byron, and Blake. Later movements like the Theosophists and the New Agers, would thrust the practice into the mainstream.
Edited by Jessica Hundley, this vibrant visual history of Western astrology is the first ever compendium of its kind, exploring the symbolic meaning behind more than 400 images, from Egyptian temples and illuminated manuscripts to contemporary art from across the globe. Works by artists from Alphonese Mucha and Hilma af Klint to Arpita Singh and Manzel Bowman are sequenced to mirror the spin of the planets and the wheel of the zodiac. With a foreword by legendary astrologer Susan Miller and wisdom from new interviews with astrologers like Robert Hand, Jessica Lanyadoo, and Mecca Woods, Astrology celebrates the stars and their mysterious influence on our everyday lives.
About the series
The Library of Esoterica explores how centuries of artists have given form to mysticism, translating the arcane and the obscure into enduring, visionary works of art. Each subject is showcased through both modern and archival imagery culled from private collectors, libraries, and museums around the globe. The result forms an inclusive visual history, a study of our primal pull to dream and nightmare, and the creative ways we strive to connect to the divine.
"Introducing an instant classic--master storyteller Neil Gaiman presents a dazzling version of the great Norse myths. Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants. Once, when Thor's hammer is stolen, Thor must disguise himself as a woman--difficult with his beard and huge appetite--to steal it back. More poignant is the tale in which the blood of Kvasir--the most sagacious of gods--is turned into a mead that infuses drinkers with poetry. The work culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and rebirth of a new time and people. Through Gaiman's deft and witty prose emerge these gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to duping others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again."--Publisher's description.
Pain is something we can all relate to. We have grown socially accustomed to looking for a magic pill to mask it, and all other symptoms of deeper unrest. Yet becoming intimate with pain, but not possessed by it, enables us to feel, sense, and hear the wise teachings held within it. Emotional, physical, mental, sexual, and psychic pain, as well as collective pain carried for Earth during this time of great transition, contains valuable wisdom. Shadow is a term for the discarded within ourselves that informs our lives. It offers the potential to reveal what we previously thought was unsuitable, so unsuitable that we imprisoned it and forgot it. The aim is to know the shadow well, appreciate it, seek to integrate it--not leave it neglected to rot in a cell beneath the surface, where it is inevitably clanging its tin cup against the bars asking for acknowledgement and honoring--to make a place for it as part of your life story, but not let it be the operating manual. In this book, we'll explore: The keys to working with your shadows, How to engage your shadow to heal generational patterns, The acts of liberation for individuals and all members of society and culture, What it would look like to break the repetitive loop of suffering. Language prompts to help navigate the shadows. Shadow work is one of many keys to breaking the cycles of suffering. It prioritizes healing and offers empathy for one another.
