What do you see when you see the moon? We are in wonder and awe of the moon, just like the ancients were. First of all, how can the moon and the sun be exactly the same size in the sky? Or that the moon can perfectly cover the sun in a solar eclipse? Well, the answer is they are so perfectly spaced in distance that they appear to be the exact same size in the sky. That speaks to the perfect order and absolute amazement of creation, and how important the moon must be.
In astrology, the moon represents our emotions, and each zodiac sign and all the aspects are further intricacies of how we respond to them. Long held beliefs of the moon speak of a gentle and balanced approach to understanding the mysteries of our psyche.
At UCA, we make the moon our friend to help us unravel the messengers we call emotions. We call this friend Moonbud.
Moonbud is a simple tool that helps us to know what we feel and what to do with those feelings! Like tides of water under the influence of the moon, our emotions ebb and flow. In order for us to feel fulfilled and whole, these emotions are meant to be unblocked and allowed to flow. Moonbud, the feeling set, contains 80 cards, 40 heavy emotions and their 40 transformative light emotions, with a dictionary that explains and describes all the emotions. Putting these cards in your toolbox will allow you to name it and claim it, because half of understanding your feelings is being able to name them!
Imagine the impact of Moonbud for those most in need of emotional healing and care.
At UCA, one of our favorite parts of the day is putting together the journal sets that go in our “Because We Care” bags. Each journal set contains a journal, pen, luggage name tag, and a Moonbud feeling set! The journal set goes into the “Because We Care” bag, which includes a duffel bag, a comfy fluffy full sized blanket, and a handy towel. For us, every bag that is put together represents a child that is rescued from a terrible situation, as all the bags go to organizations who specialize in after-care of survivors of sex trafficking and abuse and neglect. Just knowing that each one of these children is empowered with the tool of the Moonbud feeling set gives us hope for their future. Because with Moonbud, it is a future where they will be able to understand their feelings and be able to advocate for themselves! Most importantly, we hope they will learn to know they are worth being treated with kindness and care.
Thank you, Moonbud!
