Greetings from the Creative Cronies Team
Merryn, Arafelle, Jade and Minerva
The Moon Calendar has a herstory of 44 years. Founded by Gretchen Lawlor in 1978, and taken over by Robyn, Minerva and Arafelle in 1990, when we formed Creative Cronies and produced our first Moon Calendar, the 1991 edition. Two years later, we published our first Astrological Moon Diary.
In 2020, an extraordinary line up of planets in Capricorn led up to the beginning of new 230 year long Jupiter/Saturn cycle known as a Great Mutation. This ‘end-time’ marked a time of collective letting go and a major reset for many of us, including Creative Cronies. In 2020, our wonderful friend and business partner Robyn chose to step away from her position in our company. Since then, Arafelle’s awesome daughter Jade, our current sales and distribution manager, has efficiently taken up much of Robyn’s mahi. Due to a busy life juggling work and family Jade may not always be available to answer the phone, but leave her a voice, txt or email message and she will get back to you.
In 2021, Saturn formed a tense square aspect with Uranus, stirring up new challenges and change, including an expansion within Creative Cronies. Merryn Grace has joined our team, as artist, writer, Instagram whizz, apprentice desk top publisher/astrologer/priestess. Our thanks go to Cypress Vivieare-Davis for cover designs, and to our proofreaders Raine and Shona. Astrologers Arafelle and Minerva wish to acknowledge the support of both our long standing and new customers. We will endeavour to produce future Moon Calendars and Diaries for as long we are able.
