The Moon the Watching Witching Moon: Our Light and Companion is a fascinating book written by David Campbell Callender that gives insight to the moon. Through much scientific research and research of different cultural beliefs of the moon, the author provides the reader with in a depth look at how the moon impacts our world. The book starts with Campbell describing how he felt when he was a little boy whenever he found himself watching the full moon and how much the moon affected his childhood. The author then moves on to describing the purpose of the moon and how it affects different aspects of the earth like the tides of the world's oceans. I have to say I'm really glad I bumped into this book, I’ve always been interested in astronomy, and getting to learn more about the moon is a bonus. This is the first book I have come across that provides both scientific and spiritual information about the moon. Author David Callender does a great job explaining the process of how NASA was able to get astronauts on the moon and the different studies they do on the moon. Callender also uses poetry to represent the moon and it’s role. I found this to be exceptionally delightful and attention grabbing. From mythology to music, the author really provides a lot of information about the moon. What really appealed to me is how the author described the moon as a female and how women have a strong connection with the moon. Callender’s writing is poetic and intellectual and easy to read. The Moon the Watching Witching Moon is an alluring and polished read that is filled with interesting details that kept me hooked until the very end. The moon sayings and poems at the end of the book are a plus for me. This book is pure knowledge, both spiritual and scholarly and I highly recommend it to anyone that is keen on learning about our beautiful moon and what she can bring us.

Book Description:

Where did the Moon first come from to fill our skies with its light, a satellite larger than any minor planet? How long ago (could it really be billions of years?) and how come it sticks so faithfully by the Earth?

No one knows for sure. But – did you know? By now there are some good guesses.

And again, why should the Moon mean so much to us, even now amid the contamination of street lights, represent our unconscious yearnings and night-time life, and in its ever recycling phases and “moonths” initiate our time measuring and control the tides of our earth and our lives, and keep coming again and again and again in our literature and art?

Is it true that wolves come out to roam in the full of the moon, and animals and humans behave differently?

Listen all about it here, the first integrated account of the Moon’s art and science, in this entrancing work by the Irish naturalist David Campbell Callender speaking through the voice of his granddaughter author, Ruth Finnegan.

And then, the watching witching Moon is just – so beautiful.
