The Cornplanting Moon is the third Moon of Wabun, the Spirit Keeper of the East. The Stone representing this Moon is placed threequarters of the way between the Eastern and Southern Stones in the outer circle of the Medicine Wheel. The mineral totem for the Cornplanting Moon is the Moss Agate. The plant totem is the Yarrow, and the animal is Deer. The colors are green and white, and the elemental influence is from the Butterfly clan.
The Moss Agate teaches people in this position to clearly see their link with the mineral and plant kingdoms. The Yarrow teaches about both cleansing and strengthening. The Deer demonstrates the beauty of grace and quick movement. This position teaches about beauty in yourself, in others, and in your environment and teaches about your own healing abilities. This position will point out any cutting edges in your personality, the necessity of balancing time and energy, and your ability to create. People experiencing the Deer position need to learn to be more consistent, less suspicious, and more willing to show some of their own deep feelings.

Deer Elusive Deer
Charm me with your grace.
Swift Moving Deer
Nature is your place.
How can I know your way
When you are here and gone?
What Spirits in you stay
To tease and lead me on?
Oh Laughing Deer
What has your humor brought?
With illumined vision wrought
The gift of joyful days:
Were always yours to give,
And peaceful happy ways
To teach us how to live.
All things are tuned to you.
All Knowing Deer
You walk in wisdom too.
Make my eyesight clear,
My mind and body whole.
You are the healer here,
I am the wanting soul.

"Moss Agate is an overall healing stone." It can bring balance to your body, and is good for one's eyes. Moss Agate is often used to create a connection between the mineral, animal, and human families. During difficult times, you can use this stone to find truth and courage within yourself. Another use is to relieve depressed feelings. Also, "Moss Agate has been used in rainmaking ceremonies."
Dancing With The Wheel tells us that the color White for this position is translucent, like that found in many Moss Agates. You can see this in the Photo of Moss Agate on the left (above). This is a White that symbolizes the perfect purity and innocence with which all are born. And the Green is that dark waxy shade found in deep forest plants or where there is plenty of water. (Can't quite match either of those shades of color here.) This Green is excellent for healing and restoration on our deepest levels of being. Having this combination of White and Green will encourage the purity and innocence needed for true healing: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
PRINTING PROBLEM: This was brought to my attention a while back. The colors for this Moon are Green and White. I had White text on a Green background - it looked very good. But when you printed this page, the White text did NOT show (background color not printed). I did not want to change the text color, so suggested a couple workarounds. They did not work too well. Therefore I have reversed the colors - now have a whitish background (emulating translucent white) with dark green text :o)
