|Imagine how enriching your life could be if
during each month you walked in the mythos of the ancestors.
Ancient Moon Wisdom
is more than a book. It is a monthly guide that delivers the wisdom of the past to the circumstances of the present.
Imagine it was the Hebrew Moon of Sh’vaht, with the guidance of Ancient Moon Wisdom you would be inspired to walk in the archetypal wisdom of the tribes of Joseph, surrounded by their totem animals: Buffalo, Wild Donkey and Oryx, representative of Strength, Endurance and Resilience. Inspired by the story of Joseph and the daring audacity that elevated him from a hopeless slave to second-in-command of the mighty Egyptian Empire, you pay more attention to your wildest, most incredible dreams and visions, and walk boldly into and through any obstacle that might come your way. During this month, you will carry with you the Onyx stone, respectful of the delicateness of its delicate powers, walking the tightrope of daily life choices with a sense of focus characteristic of the Joseph archetype. Residing this month in the House of Love, you will be inspired to deepen your sense of loving and being loved while retaining your personal truth no matter what. Ancient Moon Wisdom is more than a book, it is a guide that enables you to tune in every month to its particular characteristic, its very specific life wisdom as symbolized by the stories and teachings behind its respective tribal association and corresponding totems and symbols.
Make every New Moon more than a one-day Rosh Chodesh event. Make it the beginning that it is, the fresh onset of a month-long enriching pathway illuminated by deep life lessons as articulated by Rabbi Miriam Maron, who has for decades helped many people of all backgrounds, as mentor and healer, employing this rich body of ancient Kabbalistic wisdom.

We are living in exciting yet challenging times. Everything around us is shifting faster than our normative life rhythm as time itself rushes by at an unprecedented speed. This book highlights these shifts as they are affected by the phases of the lunar cycles and how we can tap into them for mindful living as we strive for personal balance during this sometimes-unsteady journey. Drawing from a rich treasury of ancient Kabbalistic mystery wisdom and her many years of experience as a spiritual healer and counselor, Dr. Maron introduces us to the remarkable interplay of the months of the yearly cycle with aboriginal tribal archetypes in the Hebraic tradition and their corresponding animal, mineral and plant totems. Here we will discover important life lessons from the histories and mythologies surrounding these archetypes and the deeper meanings behind each of their corresponding lunar cycles – all of which will prove helpful in our personal and interpersonal unfolding to bring more ease to our lives.
What they’re saying about
Ancient Moon Wisdom
"Ancient Moon Wisdom is indeed a work of wisdom that takes the reader far beyond the reaches of the Moon into realms of deeper understanding about the archetypes that live and act within each of us. The author has patiently gathered a rich treasury of sources from early Hebraic ideology and mythology and woven them into a fabric that can enhance, empower and enrich the reader's relationship with his or her personal life walk and relationships. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to deepen their connection with self, Earth, and Spirit." Rabbi Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi, Ph.D., World Wisdom Chair Emeritus, Naropa University; Professor Emeritus, Temple University; author of From Ageing to Sageing and Spiritual Intimacy
“No exaggeration: this book is profound. I am still trying to figure out how the gifted author was able to be so warm and easy to read, and yet I feel like I learned something new or was reminded of something important in every single paragraph. Each year I select a book, buy a batch, and give them to my family and friends. No question: this is it.” – Arthur Kurzweil, author of Kabbalah for Dummies, and From Generation to Generation: How to Trace Your Jewish Genealogy and Family History (Foreword by Elie Wiesel)
"An easy-to-read, living document that has profound meaning for our everyday existence. Her book is replete with ancient knowledge and fresh understanding that gifts us with helpful insight and practical guidance for living happier, healthier, and more conscientious lives." Rabbi Arthur Segal, author of The Handbook to Jewish Spiritual Renewal
"An important resource and a significant contribution to universal theology, mythology, and mysticism." Rabbi Steven J. Kaplan, Ph.D., Dean, Graduate Theological Institute, Margate, FL
"Ancient Moon Wisdom: The Kabalistic Wheel of Astro Mystery and its Relationship to the Human Experience by Rabbi Miriam Maron, PhD, reveals a sophisticated shamanic Hebraic understanding of the subtle, living system of Hebrew astrology which has existed at least since the time of Abraham. Because Rabbi Miriam is schooled in the aboriginal Hebraic tribal wisdom, she is able to offer penetrating insights into the wisdom of Hebraic astrology in a unique way that takes us beyond the traditional astrological understandings into the mystical realm of being in deeper relationship with the living planets, sun, moon and stars as the experience of the mysterious wisdom dance of the Divine in our lives. This book is a shamanic jewel that is well worth reading.” Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, M.D., author of Torah as a Guide to Enlightenment, and Founder of Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, Patagonia, AZ
Ancient Moon Wisdom daringly traverses the fathomless depths of early Hebraic mystery wisdom to bring to the surface the more aboriginal dimension of Judaism and its indigenous roots in the magic of our universe, particularly the universe of Stones, Plants, Animals, as well as Earth, Moon and Sun. Sources never before translated into the English vernacular abound throughout this masterful work, introducing both the novice and the scholar to realms of knowledge and understanding about the dance of Moon in her twelve, sometimes thirteen, rounds, and how these shifts in her choreography affect us consciously and unconsciously. Dr. Maron not only teaches us about the ancient tribal archetypes that the ancestors assigned to each month, but explains with refreshing clarity each their totems in ways that enable us to relate the wisdom of these archetypes and their personas to our own life struggles and celebrations. Finally, a book you will want to refer to again and again for practical guidance and insight as you walk the gauntlet of your life journey.” Rabbi Gershon Winkler, Ph.D., author of Daily Kabbalah and Magic of the Ordinary: Recovering the Shamanic in Judaism
