The Moon & Everyday Living is the retitled second edition of Moonwise, originally published in 2000. Astrologically, the moon's monthly journey through the Zodiac has a great deal of influence over our lives and over the Earth. The most obvious lunar effect is the tides, but many people use the moon to select the best times to plant, fish, or hunt. Pharr's book presents astrological information about the moon's effects on personality and a method of determining how the moon's travels affect the reader personally.

The first chapter is a short introduction to the Moon and lunar lore. It's an interesting hodgepodge of anecdotes and facts about the Moon's effects. The second chapter presents two methods (a journal and an energy log) of determining the specific effects of the moon on you. While this chapter is quite short, actually following through on it may take several lunar months. The third chapter, which discusses the effects of the moon's phases, is also quite brief. The fourth chapter talks about the effects of the moon as it passes through each sign of the Zodiac and when it is void-of-course.

The fifth chapter, at over 100 pages, is the major event of the book. It discusses each natal moon sign and the influence of the moon as it moves through the Zodiac each month for each particular natal moon sign. (An appendix presents a method for determining the reader's natal moon sign if he does not already know it.) The sixth and final chapter discusses good ways to use the moon's energy as it moves through its phases and the signs of the zodiac each month.

The Moon & Everyday Living isn't a bad book, but it really doesn't stand out among the many other astrology books on the bookstore shelves. If you need an easy to understand introductory guide to lunar astrology, this book is not a bad choice. If you've passed beyond the need for introductory guides, however, you will not miss anything by passing this book by.
