Kūkahi

The moon for March 19, 2018 is called Kūkahi. “Kū” means to stand, to appear. And “kahi” refers to “ʻekahi,” meaning one. There are 4 Kū moons in each 30-night lunar cycle. Kū moons are sacred to the god of war and politics, Kū. As they mean, “to stand.” All Kū moons are ideal for things that we want to grow upright and remain tall and strong. This may be a tree, or even a wall, a fence, altar, or a house.

Kū moons are also a good time to take initiative and action, whether that is to call a meeting, or bring up a question or offer an idea, as “kū” also means to appear. The specific moon of Kūkahi, according to some sources, has good reef fishing during the day and is a good time to plant ʻuwala. Over eons of practicing this knowledge, we also noticed that plants planted on Kūkahi produced one shoot, as “kū kahi” can also be translated as to “stand singularly.” Overall, this moon is a time for us and that which we cultivate to stand tall because it is now that we are upon firm foundations.
