To know your Moon is to understand your emotional flow and the deep intuitive side of yourself that informs who we are, what we do, and why we do it. In Moon Tides, Soul Passages, Maria Kay Simms presents a beautiful and powerful book to help you learn and connect with your lunar side.
Moon Tides, Soul Passages is a book about lunar astrology. Simms guides you through the signs of the zodiac system, how these are connected to seasonal mythology, and the role of the moon in cycles of relationships and the changing seasons. She incorporates goddess mythology, explores astrological houses, and explores various phases of the moon. Moon Tides, Soul Passages includes a CD that you can use to create a complete report of about your lunar placements. Armed with this knowledge, you can experiment with Simms’s suggestions for connecting with the lunar and seasonal cycles, such as journaling, meditation, and rituals for personal insight and spiritual empowerment. The book is also enhanced with lunar and goddess artwork and poetry as well as personal stories and examples from biographies of notable public figures.
While it helps to have some prior study of astrology before embarking on this book, it’s not required. I don’t have a profound knowledge of astrology and I found this book highly readable and illuminating. I spent a lot of time working through it, exploring my chart, and examining patterns in my behaviour and in my life. The book is not religion-specific, but Simms is a Wiccan high priestess. As a Wiccan myself, I found that her explanations helped me make connections in my practice. This is a book I’ll turn to again and again. I highly recommend it.
