The moon is not the most important natural element to my people. As a coastal group, the water, sea and tides matter most. This is what we are told about the ancients.

So we use tidal changes in a similar way as others use moon phases. The beauty of this is that tides are of course affected by the moon.

The going out tide is like the waning moon; the coming in like the waxing.

  1. I live at the ocean; and I feel this way about tides as well. Its amazing to stand on the beach and feel the power of the waves in the quicker fluctuation as well.

  2. Ah yes, the subtle and the unexpected fluctuations are also of use.
