Today’s Lively Show is also the season 3 finale — and it’s on a topic I’ve wanted to share for more than a year.
How to use moon cycles as a tool for planning life and career.
In case you are unfamiliar, there are some of the most powerful reasons for using the lunar cycles as a planning guide: it incorporates intention, releases negative beliefs, includes incremental rest, and encourages energized action in a synchronized and harmonious way that is often lacking in many other “traditional planning methods.”
Today Dr. Ezzie Spencer, of Lunar Abundance and author of An Abundant Life, is walking us through how to set your intention at the start of a new moon (tip: the next one happens on April 26th, 2017) and move through the eight phases in any area of your life.
This episode is perfect for anyone looking to learn more about the lunar cycles, or how to incorporate more flow and rest into busy lives.

Ezzie talks about when tracking the moon’s cycles, there were patterns that emerged that had a correlation with her feelings.

She began to track the moon by drawing little symbols in her journal to represent the moon phase within each moon cycle.

Ezzie found that the moon was an excellent tool for reflection and self-inquiry.

She discusses the eight moon phases and how the phases relate to the Ying and Yang.

Ezzie mentions that since you can see and time the moon’s phases, you can bring a sense of balance into your own life and your work.

She describes how using the moon cycles as a practice to integrate in today’s busy, modern life and that can take as little as five minutes a day.
