Sometimes in the business of our daily lives we can forget some of the simplest things. We found that very often the Full Moon and the New Moon phases would sneak up on us. This can be discouraging and frustrating making us wonder how this could possibly happen given how much we love the moon and it phases.
So we started looking for ways to help us remember. We realized that it needed to be something visual, something that we would see without trying. Many reminders are such that one has to remember to look at them in order to be reminded of whatever.
After some thought we decided on a calendar dedicated to the moon phases and Sabbats. It would have to be simple visually, and placed in a visible location. This led to our choice of a small 4x6 calendar that could sit on a desk or table. Also, each page would show when the next Full Moon or New Moon was, and what the next Sabbat was. So the calendar only has to be changed once on each phase of the moon! Simple!
So far, this has been very helpful. The reminder is nice to see because the calendar shows a picture of the next moon phase.
