A coyote is howling at night in the gran sabana
The next full moon is:
The Wolf Moon in January is so named for the sounds of hungry wolves howling outside of villages. Militaries and aristocratic families have named themselves after these wild dogs and featured wolves’ imagery on their coats of arms as symbols of power and the rewards of perseverance.
The lunar phases are gradual and cyclical, an exercise of waxing and waning energies, of stillness in constant movement. As you turn your thoughts inward this Moonday, ignore the hungry repressive state apparatus and capitalist elites clawing for your attention. Move to introspection, original thoughts, and finally, spiritual action.

So what is #Moonstruck...?
Once a month, on the day of the full moon, we disconnect from Big Tech for 24 hours to reconnect with our communities, nature, and ourselves. We log out of social media, turn off our phones, refrain from shopping online, and google nothing. For one day, stop feeding Apple, Amazon, Google and Facebook the precious data they need to fuel their perfect consumerist machines.
On Moonday, we regain resilience, refusing to rely on Big Tech’s tools to connect with friends or be entertained. Instead, explore the quiet moments, the solitary introspection, the painful boredom, where we rediscover the boundless creativity and madness of our minds.
So put down your phone for 24 hours. Close your laptop. Power off. Collectively, we walk through the world with our heads up, witnessing the people and trees and colors and lights, pulled from our individualist tunnel vision and thrown into the fury.
Remember you are not alone on this ancient land — we are interconnected in a web of life that has preceded this moment for millions of years. As long as the full moon lives, so will this digi-age tradition.
For 24 hours, we dance, howl and run, sit, stare, and think. On Moonday, we live!
#moonstruck was inspired by our campaign against Big Tech, #OCCUPYSILICONVALLEY. Even one day away from their screens, tech, and constant distractions moved people enough to reach out with their personal experience.
