The New Moon is when the sun and the moon are aligned, with the Moon and Sun are on opposite sides of the Moon.
Being together with a “Moondancer” -Magdalena Sartori- I have been “apoyo” at two Moondances and could learn more about feeling the presence of the Moon. It is a great privilege as I got to see 300 women fast and do rituals, dances and songs for 4 nights in a row at Full Moon which they do in secret. They are the modern good witches.
During my Muka dieta in the jungle I also learned to feel the Moon and its cycles. The one year Muka dieta itself can only be started on a new moon, I started mine on April 2, 2022 saying my intentions aloud to the Yawanawà leaders who were witnessing my “initiation”.
Here are a few notes from a quick research today. more on https://yawa.news
