Nitpick alert: I would probably qualify that by saying "every earth-centered form of pagan." It's a lot more emphasized in some traditions than others, and from things you've mentioned to me, I'd say that your spirituality is more closely aligned with nature than some paths. (Also, I think the poster you're quoting was referring to HER moon time, as in time of the month.)

Eh.  As a non-earth-centered pagan, I'll complain less about moon cycles than some other things--depending upon exactly how it's put.  Although my path doesn't emphasize or align with nature, the phase of the moon does come into it *somewhat*.  Not in the sense of having some magical or spiritual significance in and of itself, but because the first sighting of the new crescent marks the beginning of the month on my religious calendar.  If someone expects me to find some sort of Big Cosmic Significance in it, yeah, I won't be doing that on a religious level.  But moon cycles being significant?  Well...  Yeah, sort of, kind of.

Even that won't be universal, obviously, but "moon cycles" does cover a lot more ground than "earth-based".
