A guide to conscious living through the moon and her phases, incorporating wellness rituals, spellwork, and witchcraft for the modern seeker.
We all know the moon. We all have a relationship with it. The earliest people obeyed her orbit, timed their months and holidays and celebrations and agriculture to the moon; the echoes of that system are still visible today, though the connection to the moon is often forgotten.
Sarah Faith Gottesdiener is the leader of a movement to remind us of that lineage, guiding our rhythms and our sleep, our energy and our emotions, reminding us of our humanity and our magic. In her self-published Many Moons Workbooks and Lunar Journals, as well as her sold-out classes, she has guided over 50,000 readers to a deeper relationship with the moon, and through it, with themselves.
This evergreen book will be an informative and comprehensive guide to lunar living, incorporating radical, self-empowering, and magical tools and resources for the beginner and experienced lunar-follower alike. Depending on where we are in our lives, depending on what we are feeling or what is happening around us, the moon allows us a space to invite ritual into our daily lives. The Moon Book will provide a framework on how to utilize the entire lunar cycle holistically, while offering ways for the reader to develop a personal relationship with their own cycles—energetic, personal, and emotional—through the lens of the moon’s phases.

“Sarah clearly works for the moon and is here to help us remember what we already know: that moon work is radical work. This book is a beacon and invitation; Sarah, under the influence of moonlight, guides us (back) into relationship with the cycles and rhythms, the mystery and magic that support our personal and collective healing. For those of us dedicated to dismantling oppressive structures, within and without, it is essential that we dream up and live into new ways of being, while also rooting into ancient, non-appropriative practices. This luminous book, in all its self-determinist, feminist, rigorous glory, offers a map we so deeply need for these heartbreaking times. How I wish I had this book when I was a queer teenage witch!”
Dori Midnight, herbalist, teacher, witch
“I have a moon phase tattoo down my spine, full to new and back again, the dark moon right at the center. Every full moon I imagine my spine filing with creative potential as I find a way to stand in her light. Reading this book feels like that same kind of filling up, honoring the cyclical nature of each of us in relationship to our generous celestial friend of the night. Pragmatic and magical, and everything in between.”
Adrienne Maree Brown, author of Emergent Strategy and Pleasure Activism
“Sarah is a dedicated witch, a reverent observer of the Moon, and a talented teacher of its cycles. This book is written from a place that is informed by decades of practice, study, and experience. It is packed full of practical magic.”
Chani Nicholas, New York Times bestselling author of You Were Born For This
“The Moon Book brings us into the alignment that is already within us, our inherent worthiness, and how we can use the power of the moon to return to it when we forget. Sarah’s own connection to the sky and to herself makes her the perfect guide for this inner work, the work that is vulnerable and messy and in the shadows, Sarah takes our hand to bring us into the light – both working with the changing light of the moon itself and the changing light within us. This book is a must for witches new and old who want to understand themselves better in service to people they love and the collective with the magical support of celestial waves.”
