Phases of the Moon

The moon cycle is the original "month." It bridges the temporal gap between the daily sun cycle and the turning of the year. By identifying each new moon as the start of a new Lunar Month (Moonth), and naming that Lunar Month after that Goddess, the day of each Goddess can be identified as "nth day of ____ moon. This array of "moonths" changes each year, and ALL Goddesses will have at least one "moonth" named for them over a span of approximately 160 years.
