We’Moon: Gaia Rhythms for Womyn, the iconic astrological datebook, is a best-selling moon calendar, earth-spirited handbook in natural rhythms­­, and visionary collection of women’s creative work, now in its 37th year of publication.

La Luna calls on the Moon to enlighten us in these clouded times. Transformation is Her specialty! We invoke the Moon's powers of re-direction for a fragile planet, for troubled peoples, and for all who seek new guidance. La Luna's dance with Light and Dark, Birth and Death, growth and demise is a pageant of regenerative hope. Her rhythms stir our life-blood, and her cycles reflect the hidden layers of our body-mind wisdom.

"I have been using your calendar for years and years!!! Thank you for the incredible work We’Moon is doing. The much-needed shift in consciousness towards a more woman-honoring world is inspiring in so many of us."—Alice Walker, author and activist

Modern culture and the We’Moon calendar, as timely as ever. This is so much more than a calendar. It is a resource—a way of focusing the direction of your days on positive living. The poetry and art always inform, inspire, and profoundly impress."—Vision Magazine, November 2011
