Unfortunately, many women no longer bleed with the moon, as we are disconnected with nature =\ Did you know, originally, we were supposed to ovulate around the full moon, and bleed on the new moon? I consider myself more connected with nature than most, and my body has only JUST begun to adjust with the phases of the moon. I've read you can help it to adjust by sleeping in as much darkness as possible when the new moon is out, and sleeping with a night light on during the nights of the full moon. Typically, my body is completely out of whack during the winter, but when it starts warming up and I spend more time outside and reconnect, it adjusts to the cycles of the moon.

I do pay attention to the moon's placement, by both phase and sign, and use this information for timing my activities. I replied to recommend Tracy's blog. She is an MDC member and wise woman who writes lovely reports each new moon, and also at full moon, too. You might also be interested in treasure mapping with us at Aries New Moon; Tracy has already put up a prep thread for that on this forum.
After MUCH research, I was finally able to find a site calculator to find this date. Turns out his solar return this year was March 30th, around 3:49 pm. So I quietly celebrated this as no one really grasped the concept of it. :)
