The final quarter of the second moon cycle in the Choctaw season onáfa began today in Chahta i̱ Yakni, land of the Choctaw, at 2:33am. The third quarter started with rain and ended with cool temperatures that lasted all day. The cold mornings are here for good. The moon was in the Leo constellation when the third quarter ended.
The next moon is called Kowi Chito.
The fourth quarter is a time to plan for new projects, or new parts of bigger projects, to start with the new cycle. Onáfa is a good time to listen to elders and stories, and to learn.
