'Life is full of phases' Moon greetings card

£3.50

The full Moon rises into the crisp, star-studded night sky. The start, end or middle of the Moon’s phases? Soon she will start to wane rising later and later until she only appears during the day, only her shadow facing us, barely visible to the naked eye. Rotating on her axis, orbiting the Earth, spinning around the Sun her elliptical movements affecting tides and animal behaviour alike. Life and nature is full of phases. These cards remind us to take comfort from the Moon’s cycle – ever shifting and yet always the same.

Text on front: Life is full of phases
Inside text: blank
Text on back: 
Life is full of phases. As the Moon orbits the Earth we see different parts illuminated by the Sun - from the full to new Moon and back, the cycle starting every 29.5 days. People in centuries past planned night time journeys and autumn harvests according to the lunar phases; the bright full Moon helped light the roads and fields. Although scientific evidence that humans are biologically affected by the Moon’s phases is scarce, other animals’ behaviours do syncronise with the lunar cycle. Whip-poor-wills nightjars hatch just after the new Moon so parents can hunt for food more easily as the full Moon emerges. Romantically, corals in the Great Barrier Reef release sex cells for reproduction under the light of the full Moon.

The little card with lots of meaning

I bought this as I wanted a special card to give my mum who is going through a tricky time. It was absolutely perfect - the art on the front was beautiful (and now I may have to buy the matching print!), exactly the message I wanted, and it was packaged well and delivered promptly. Needless to say my mum loved it. Thank you!

Good quality

Very pleased with this card, with the thoughtful design printed on quality card. It would look great on the wall (there is a print in a larger size, too).
