Lunar Diary - a personal research tool for Lunar Days (for iPhone and iPod touch)

From time immemorial, people knew that there is a strong connection between the rhythms of the Moon and life on our planet. One of such rhythms is the rhythm of the Lunar Days. The first lunar day starts at the moment of the New Moon, and each consequitive lunar day starts at the moment when the Moon rises in the given location.

Different traditions have their descriptions for the Lunar Days. Sometimes those descriptions are quite similar but in many cases they contradict each other.

The purpose of the Lunar Diary is to give you an opportunity to do your own private research and to form your own opinion about what different lunar days mean in your life. You can follow the rhythm of the lunar days in your specific location, read the descriptions for them, synthesized from a few different traditions, agree or disagree with them and then leave your own notes on the events or moods that you've experienced during one or another lunar day. After you've left a few personal notes for this day, you might be able to figure out whether it is beneficial or not in your life, and change the color of that day in your Lunar Diary accordingly.

The main scren of the Lunar Diary

The main screen shows the number of the current lunar day using the color that reflects the energy of the day: green for positive days, red for negative and orange for those days where the existing traditional interpretations contradict each other, or where the descriptions aren't very clear, or where the day is neither good nor bad.

You can also see the dates and times of the beginning of the day and of its end, as also the location for which these data were calculated (remember: lunar days are location sensitive).

Then you can see a description for the day that was synthesized from different traditional sources.

If you click on the badge below, your iTunes should open displaying iLuna.

Below, there is a toolbar that offers you a number of different options. For example, you can navigate to the next or the previous lunar day by pressing the arrow buttons on the toolbar - or you can achieve the same result by simply swiping across the screen in the appropriate direction.

Follow the screen shots below to see the main features of the Lunar Diary. If you still have a question, or if you wish to provide feedback, please write to the Author.

For each lunar day, you can add a note describing your experience on that day. With time, you will have a number of notes that might give you an idea about the meaning of this specific lunar day in your life. You can then change the color of the day - for example, making it green if the day is consistently good in your experience.

This is how you can add a note, a specify a color for that specific experience.

You can also view an existing note, edit or delete it if needed.

There is another button on the toolbar that will display a calendar for the current month.

You can navigate to the next or previous month by either pressing the arrow buttons or swiping across the screen.

You can also tap on a day, and the main view will display the first lunar day on that date.

Yet another button on the toolbar will offer you to select a location. You can pick one of the preconfigured locations that come with the app, or you can configure a custom location, if you know its latitude, longitude and time zone, or you can use your current location.

There is a number of different countries in the database of preconfigured locations, and this database will be gradually updated to contain even more locations.

This is the beginning of the list of locations in the USA.

Here you can configure a custom location.

Just enter its latitude and longitude...

...and don't forget the time zone.

You can have as many different custom locations as you wish.
