12th Moon - The Moons of 2021

A painting with the Moon each month as medicine to heal from the year that shall not be named.


This month's naming influence:


Inspired by Usgiyi:

"SNOW MOON (when the first snows fall in the mountains)"


And there goes 2021. A meditation on the nations with a 13th Moon will follow.

I truly hope that by honoring the moons and as many peoples' loving names for her that this

work has somehow made a contribution to helping soothe the vibations of a tumultuous year.


Below are all the names of the 12th Moon that I could find. The Moon unites us.

We all call the Moon by her name.
