It's been slowly dawning on me that I may have the moon cycle wrong. Because of the power of the extremes of full and new moon, I hadn't noticed that the start of the cycles are actually at the Quarter moons.
makes more sense, since the peaks and troughs aren't really the start
of anything, but the extremes. The start is always in the middle.
that is true, I'd have to adjust my thinking a bit -- if the cycle
starts in First Quarter, then that's the root chakra area? And ends in
Last Quarter, that would be the crown chakra? That would be a major
change, toppling much of what I have done, but it would explain a lot of
the confusion in Boger's work on the moon as well as mine.
to revisit Boger again. Boger has had a number of remedies that have
worked around the First and Last Quarter moon. I always wondered about
them, because I was so focused on getting the Full and New Moon remedies
right. (Getting them right was also almost impossible - too many
remedies are drawn during those peak periods. If they are the areas of
the heart chakra and solar plexus, that would explain the metabolic
speeding up of full moon and the dips of the new moon.)
quarter moon remedies of Boger were more consistent with deep healing
than the bunching up of many remedies connected to digestion during the
peak periods of the Full and New Moon. Or so it seemed - I need to read
that book again to confirm it.
