Our work week begins with ‘Olekūkahi, the 7th visible moon (from O‘ahu). The four ‘ole moons in this stage of the mālama (lunar month) show us that we can rest and even relax now. Planning, revising, maintenance, weeding, cleaning also match the feel. If you were mapping your life by this timing you may not start a major construction project now. Perhaps you could even have a vacation or get a massage. Just fyi, another series of ‘ole moons begins on June 4th. Each community, family and person has its own unique timing, so there is no "ultimate" law for what to do and not do on the ‘Ole moons. There are, however, general themes to consider.
In a traditional context, a sense of timing is extremely relevant. To understand timing, you would need to understand where a person (or place) is at in their own personal timeline. In a modern world where obligations and lifestyle choices are at a historically complex level very few people are able to consistently be on the same page. This creates an unstable family, group and community dynamic when it comes to carrying out certain kūleana (responsibilities). Yet in the truest sense, the traditional community structure had an extremely cohesive timing system between the people and the environment.
As this cultural, human and environmental healing process continues timing should become more critical. Take a look at the timing systems the world accepts as normal today: 9am to 5pm work schedule, 8am - 3pm school schedule, 5 day work week, 2 day weekend (in many countries). Yet one of the hallmarks of the traditional community was a timing system that does not conform to these contemporary standards. Taking the time to make sense of where we are at when life gets so chaotic is an important life skill.
