Overall Review

  • Assumes interest in moon phases and that you want to better your life
  • No religion or specific spiritual practice is necessary or mentioned – this could fit in with any other practice
  • First couple chapters felt repetitive
  • Gives a sense that you are in charge of your life, and to take charge you need to put in the work, not just wish for things to go your way
  • Sometimes the text feels “fluffy” without substantial information or advice. The process outlined will not dive deep, unless you take it there yourself by furthering and deepening the suggested exercises
  • However, the parts that are not “fluffy” are profoundly deep and very quotable
    Information is not organized in a cohesive way – for example if you read the chapters out of order in accordance with your current moon phases, you would miss key information about Yin and Yang modes that are hidden in the actual individual Moon cycle phase chapters
  • Chapters include exercises that have lined areas to make your notes, lists, observations, etc. There is also a notes section with many lined pages at the back of the book
  • Reference section at the back lists references and further resources, sectioned by specific interests. Last are endnotes full references

In-Depth Review

Lunar Abundance = regulating life through observation of the moons monthly cycles, and eight phases, which contains universal wisdom about the Yin mode of being and the Yang mode of operating. Mentioned benefits = improved menstruation, peace, effectiveness, gentle transformation, self knowledge and acceptance, connection to self and others.

Feminine centric focus, with the moon representing the “feminine” but not in a stereotypical way, but rather in a whole way that incorporates the soft and strong aspects of femininity. Clearly states that the book is derived from personal practice and anecdotal evidence from woman, and a few males.

I found this to be an enjoyable introduction to living and working with the moon phases. It talks about different modes of being, Yin and Yang, which switch off between each moon phase to encourage balance. I like that this book includes all the moon phases, and how to work with them, not just the New Moon and Full Moon.

Each chapter goes over a different moon phase, describing its significant and how it relates to the Yin or Yang way of being. The chapters also include exercises and/or journal questions to help you dive into the Moon phases current theme. I really feel that the way of living outlined in this book could encourage a very holistic and healthy approach to life.

Book Look

Nice matte touch cover, although not very thick seems sturdy. Pages are thicker than normal and very sturdy. Book has many full color pages and double spreads with pictures, as well as many colored pages, although about half the pages are white with black text.

Each section has a colored marker on the outside’s of the pages, like a tab to mark them. Page numbers are clearly marked on all text pages, and there is a cute illustration of the moon cycle discussed in the current chapter, as well as the chapter name preceding the page numbers on the right hand page of the spread.

Favorite Quotes

“The more you know yourself, the less you re influenced by external forces; the more you are able to hear your own deep wisdom and embrace your true nature – who you are, where you belong, and which way is the right direction – in order to take discerning action.”
Ezzie Spencer
“When we have been in “doing” mode at the expense of “being” and we then open up to more of the Yin, the pause allows space for magic. It allows us to create the conditions for abundance; when we are relaxed, our heart opens and we become magnetic.”
Ezzie Spencer
“At this time of change and instability on the planet, we need to give. At a time of growing inequality, when we have the opportunity, we need to give. Giving from a pure expression of an expanding heart, giving because we want to share both our unique and our beautifully normal gifts, giving without expectation of return: this is an expression of our humanity.”
Ezzie Spencer
