Do you really feel the same way everyday? Do you think you are intended to? Women are tied to the moon not only biologically (through their monthly menses), but also on deep inner planes. The moon moves from sign to sign every month, and takes all women along for a virtual journey that's experienced through vivid mood changes. Each sign is endowed with character and represents one of the twelve Divine archetypes. These come to life as the moon awakens them in due succession during the course of her recurrent monthly passages. Recognizing how these themes embedded into time move you will deepen your understanding of who you are. And since the moon's cycles can be plotted, you gain a powerful strategy for wisely utilizing your place(s) in time. Moon Dance is designed for those with astrological knowledge, as well as those ready to learn to respond to the rhythms of time as naturally felt and experienced on the inside.

It was many, many years ago that humans came and settled the world of Newholme - cruelly bending the planet to their will; setting down roots and raising up cities and farms and a grand temple to their goddess. But now the ground itself is shaking with ever-increasing violence. And the Greatest Questioner, official arbiter of the Council of Worlds, has come to this isolated orb to investigate rumours of a terrible secret that lies buried deep within Newholme's past - a past that is not dead, not completely. And it will fall to Mouche, a beautiful youth of uncommon cleverness and spirit, to save his imperilled home by discovering and embracing that which makes him unique among humans. For every living thing on Newholme is doomed, unless Mouche can appease something dark and terrible that is coiled within, and surrender to the mysterious ecstatic revelry that results when the six moons join.

Category: AIDS (Disease)
In the title story from Dancing on the Moon a young man, thinking of all his friends who have died from AIDS and those who are ill, says: "No one out there has a clue as to what our lives are like. All this is as strange to them as dancing on the moon." The speaker marveling at the gulf that separates those affected by AIDS from a world that thinks itself immune is just one of the memorable characters in this unprecedented book of twelve virtuoso stories about the impact of AIDS, particularly as it has reverberated through the lives of gay men. With profound literary courage, Jameson Currier documents what those lives are like. With sure-handed narrative skill, Chekhovian compassion, and remarkable grace, Currier writes not only about those who are living with AIDS and those who have died from it but also about the friends, families, and lovers who nurse and care for the sick and remember them afterward. His characters range from rebellious Southern teenagers to an elderly Jewish woman whose grandson has died, to an infant with AIDS adopted by an AIDS widower and his new lover. "What They Carried" concerns the things friends bring and give to another friend over the course of his struggle with the disease. "Reunions" finds two men sharing a bizarre cab ride in the last days of their illnesses. In "The Absolute Worst" a woman reunites two former lovers from her college years. A woman submerges herself in the new life of her dead brother's lover in order to come to terms with her own losses in "Weekends." In "Ghosts" a man seeks out a dying acquaintance in an unconscious attempt to justify his own lover's suicide. In all the stories men and women search for order and reason during a health crisis that knows no rationale. With both humor and pathos, tragedy and hope, Jameson Currier writes about life as it is lived today. Without being maudlin, sentimental, or hysterical, he shows that even the horror of AIDS can be meaningful, poignant, and instructive to the human condition. No fiction could be more pertinent to these parlous times, for Dancing on the Moon is truth-telling at its most important. It speaks eloquently to its author's abundant gifts even as it bears witness to an era in our collective history. Jameson Currier's collection may be shaped by the devastation of a virus so unknown and feared and misunderstood that it is as strange to many people as "dancing on the moon," yet no one who reads it will be left untouched.

Shattered by a recent bereavement, Minna and husband Tom retreat to an isolated village on the Dorset coast, hoping to find the solitude that will allow them to cope with their loss and rebuild their foundering marriage. Walking on the beach one day, they unearth a human skeleton. It is a discovery which will plunge Minna into a mystery which will consume her for months to come. The remains are soon identified as those of Private Lew Campbell, a black American GI who, it seems, drowned during a wartime exercise in the area half a century before. Growing increasingly preoccupied with the dead soldier’s fate, Minna befriends a melancholy elderly woman, Felix, who lived in the village during the war. As Minna coaxes Felix’s story from her, it becomes clear that the old woman knows more about the dead GI than she initially let on. Playing with the Moon is an unforgettable novel of memory and loss, about the legacy of war, and the need to reconcile ourselves to our past in order to live with the present. Felix’s final shocking confession allows her to come to terms with an event that has cast a shadow over her life, and helps Minna to begin to accept her own loss.

The moon had reached its maximum three times since the Chacoans conquered the First Moon People. The Chaco matrons had built their Great House high atop First Moon Mountain, and their warriors stalked arrogantly through the villages, taking what they pleased. But the gods can only stand so much human arrogance. Cold Bringing Woman, the goddess of winter, calls upon young Ripple to embark on a perilous quest to destroy the hated Chacoans. But Ripple will not face the task alone; he is aided by his stalwart friends: Wrapped Wrist, a short lothario; Spots, scarred at birth, and aide to the frightening witch, Nightshade; and Bad Cast, a simple family man, who will do anything to free his people. But the blessed matrons will brook no insurgency. In retaliation, war chief Leather Hand and his warriors embark on a campaign of terror so gruesome it remains unrivaled in the annals of prehistory. It all comes to a climax atop the mountain we now know as Chimney Rock. In the white light of the lunar maximum, the Pueblo gods will dance—and an empire will be engulfed in flames and mayhem. From New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear, People of the Moon is a story of North America's Forgotten Past—the battles fought, the heroes made, and the cultures that thrived in America's prehistory. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
