Gypsy Moon

New Moon in sidereal Sagittarius

On the Gypsy Moon, we go outside our homes and experience new cultures. Ideally, we should be experiencing cultures that stretch our ability to accept, that force us to confront ourselves and our own biases. It's best if a good deal of actual travel was involved, because the travel provides a buffer before and after for contemplation. Don't succumb to the temptation to just read about something - actually go breathe air you've never breathe, on ground you've never put your feet on. - Moon Phase Astrology by Raven Kaldera.

I can't afford to travel so going to an ethnic restaurant will have to do. My husband said he visited an Ethiopian restaurant some years ago. We are thinking of trying to find one for his birthday dinner.

What culture would you like to experience one day?


  1. Great post Janai! I would love to visit Australia, however, I doubt that will ever happen. I think that whole experience would be superfantastic!

    Are you doing a new moon ritual?

    1. Yes, I did one this moonth. Was a little distracted but I felt I needed to be in my altar space since I hadn't done a ritual in a long time. Oh, and I cleaned the carpet since it smelled like Samus was leaving her offerings. LOL!!
