Issue 6 – Upgraded Print Quality

Greetings from a mind-meltingly hot desert, after a deep hibernation period, we’re excited to announce that Luna Arcana’s issue 6 is out. This issue is a whole new experience, completely self-funded, with no ads.

Letters from Luna – Summer 2023

Hello friend, A gentle belated supermoon in Aquarius to you! Here’s luna in all her glory at 5::45am this morning, the recommended dog-hiking window during summer months in the desert. We’ve had thunderstorms and a small amount of much-needed rain in parts of this high desert region. It’s that time of year that has become known as fire season in California, and this year is no different. The York Fire, which has been raging in the Mojave National Preserve for…

Wintering, and other stories

Trusting that the entry into winter (the season of retreating into a bowl of nourishing, hearty soup!)  here in the northern hemisphere is going peacefully for you.

For my part, I’ve been enjoying the…

All Roads Lead to Joy

by Rohini Walker Since the desert took me in almost a decade ago, I’ve been shedding layer after layer of ill-fitting beliefs lurking within me that were not of my conscious choosing; distorted value systems and their attendant powers to make meaning and create realities instilled in me by family, culture and society, who for the most part did not consciously choose these for themselves either. Over the past couple of years, this shedding of decrepit old inner operating systems, and…

The Feather of Ma’at

by Rohini Walker The days of dwindling light are officially upon us here in the northern hemisphere. I write to you from a gusty Mojave high desert, where the cooling temperatures are greedily welcomed after another merciless and revelatory summer. We have just exited the season of the ancient Egyptian goddess, Ma’at – symbolized by the scales of Libra, the constellation in which the sun was recently in residence – and are well on our way towards the renewal of death, the…
