Poems of the moon cycle.

Night Flux
McCall Donoho

Each phase of the moon is packed with energy and symbolism. Starting with the new moon, the moon grows (waxing) until it reaches its full potential: the full moon. During the full moon, emotions are heightened with the tides of feminine energy. The moon then begins the waning process where the size shrinks back until the cycle begins again.

Below are a series of poems, each relating to a phase of the moon.

1. NEW MOON

Regenerated and charged,

she waits to become large.

We plant her seeds,

her intentions.

Her breath brings unlimited oxygen;

nourishing the source lung,

feeding the highest soul.

She is new.

2. WAXING CRESCENT

Her sprouts begin to declare themselves;

seeing the air for the first time,

new energy is vibrant

and detailed.

The thought is taken to a concept;

a fetus of the higher plan.

3. FIRST QUARTER

Stuck with challenge;

her face will not fluster,

her momentum will not lessen.

Rooting deeper,

beginning the action;

her fingers are meticulous with the clay,

as it laps around the wheel--

molding the night sky.

4. WAXING GIBBOUS

Patience is tested,

but she doesn't know how to give in

to false light.

Gestation is cyclic,

as is her pottery wheel.

Spinning her out to nurture

and provide for the higher soul.

5. FULL MOON

Energy peaks,

blessings come to fruition,

celebration is blossoming;

her light shines bright.

Gratitude rushes over the higher soul,

as a waterfall atop the submerged rocks;

the flux is full.

6. WANING GIBBOUS

Higher soul opens their arms

to receive and rejoice.

Releasing the build up,

basking in the now.

Service is more than the harvest,

but the harvest meets her eyes.

She's allowed a blink of rest,

as the higher soul

nurtures internally.

7. LAST QUARTER

Decay is upon the higher soul,

such that transition must occur.

Forgiveness is met with adjustments

because the cycle must continue.

Her hands cover the eyes of the higher soul

protecting the nations and warming the skin.

8. WANING CRESCENT

The millions of eyes

begin to close

behind the strength of her touch;

the higher soul must rest.

Restoration and reflection creep into the dreams of soul;

composting the negativity,

surrendering to the true light.

Intuition peaks before the conscious mind

steals the reins once again

to become new.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
