How does the moon affect you?
The moon influences the movements of our body fluids.
Its’ influx is so strong it controls the movements of ocean tides and determines their cycles. As our ancestors knew, as the moon has the power to move the waters of our worlds oceans so it has also great influence upon all living beings on this earth. Especially as women, we feel connected to the ever changing lunar cycle, our emotions, moods, behaviors and impulses are uniquely affected.
The moon is associated with femininity.
it awakens our unique, magical nature, and nurtures our feminine soul since time immemorial. She influences our body fluids, our emotions. To understand her, is to understand our own selves.
It is associated with the beginning of a new cycle. Our energy emerges renewed. Through her we breathe life and vigor into our inner growth.
The Waxing Moon.
This is the moment of greatest plenty, your receptivity increases so your creativity can manifest. This is the appropriate moment for creativity and renewal.
Associated with fullness and completion. In the case of women, it is ther connection to Mother Earth, when menstruation is understood, acknowledging her gifts and her mysteries, it is a time to honor our femininity.
This is a time for introspection, a time to take pause, to go within ourselves and look inside. The waning moon is a period of reflection within ourselves that will yield us strength and perspective to begin a new cycle, to begin on the New Moon.
During the days of bleeding, given that our energy is directed inward, the Moon counsels us toward reflection, to attend to our inner demands. I feel a strong urge to remain within the intimacy of my period and my rhythms.
Experience your menstruation as a hopeful time of dreams, that these moments of intimacy and completion will bring about. This would constitute a perfect menstrual cycle: Ovulation on the New Moon, and menstruation during the Full Moon. Our sacred uterus is connected to the Earth and the Moon. We carry within a living moon that causes us to change and evolve every day. Get in touch with your inner moon to discover who you truly are. Menstruation is a delicate process by which we women refine and purify our feminine essence.
