'Ole Ku Kahi, 'Ole Ku Lua
'Ole Pau

(Twenty-first to twenty-third nights)

First, second and last `Ole nights. This is a time that is not recommended for planting or fishing. It is windy and tides will run high. Farmers use this time for weeding. `Ole pau and Kaloa kukahi are the kapu periods of the akua Kanaloa and Kaloa and offering are made with pule(prayer).

From the website Hunt and Fish Maui, a very useful visual description of the Hawaiian Moon Calendar.

We observe and practice "No new projects during the 'ole cycles'" and refrain from new posts here and on our other blogs. We'll use these three days to review our progress since the 'ole cycle (of four nights) that ended on Christmas Day, 2009.

A hui hou,

Mokihana and Pete
