I never used to think about the moon. When working in consulting (9-6 office job), the majority of my days were spent under a roof except for the 15 seconds walking to and from my car. Because of Ashtanga, I now keep track of what the moon is up to (just put moon calendar up on blog on the right).
Two questions I’ve been wondering about:
- What is the reason for resting on moon days? I’ve never been able to find a good answer.
- Traditionally, are we supposed to fast on moon days? I’ve heard this but am not sure if anyone actually does it.
