Free – A Unique Events Reminder App for iPhone and Android

MoonMinder, for iPhone and Android, provides events reminder of upcoming dates of lunar, astronomical and festivals from calendars of several major world religions.

All of humanity shares the same view from this, our home, the Earth. We all see the same stars moving through the sky, and we all see the same moon shifting, waxing, waning, and eclipsing.

We all belong to a culture that celebrates in our own way, the same view.

From astronomy, find in MoonMinder, details and reminders of those moving planets and that ever changing moon.

Find here details and reminders of the ways many of us celebrate those changes. If you wish, explore when other cultures celebrate the same view.

Here are the exact times of planetary stations, sign changes, aspects, eclipses, full and new moons. Track Lunar Mansions through each day.

Here are lunar dates, shifting slightly each year, from the calendars of all three sons of Abraham: the Jew, the Muslim, and the Christian. Here too are festival dates from the calendars of the Traditional Chinese, Taoist, Hindus, Bahai, Sikh, Buddhists, Japanese and Wiccans.

In this app, for Android or iPhone, choose your own reminders, from the most astronomical perspective, to the most personally cultural, as you desire.

MoonMinder. Available from your Apple App Store or Google Play.
