Moon Over Maui

A Jewish Mystical Journey through the Year

The Quiet Cheshvan Moon

Written By: Jueli Garfinkle - Oct• 28•11

The moon cycle of Cheshvan crests tonight and sheds its last light in the final weeks of November (October 29 through November 26, 2011). The focus of Cheshvan is to be quiet and to allow the insights and experiences of last month to deepen and take root within you.

The last moon cycle of Tishrei was a full and intense journey: from acknowledging your Divine purpose and calling straight through to intimate dances with holiness, joy and celebration.

Conversely, the moon cycle of Cheshvan is a month of quiet. It is the only month in the Jewish calendar that has no special holidays. This means that there is no infusion of new insight or awareness. Instead, the focus of the Cheshvan moon is to allow the spiritual intensity of last month to take root in your normal everyday life.
