The moon and I go hand in hand…
For many women, the thought of the moon cycle corresponding to their menstrual cycle sprinkles in a dose of magic. Rotating 29.5 days, the moon goes through 8 phases (New, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Last Quarter and Waning Crescent). However, most are familiar with the new and full moons since those get the most airtime. Similar to the moon cycle, a woman’s menstrual cycle goes through changes from menstruation, to ovulation where fertilization and the seeds are planted, to the pre-menstrual phase of harvest and budding, (and if you are not pregnant), decay as we prepare for the new cycle of menstruation.
Learning how our bodies go from birth to death, growth and renewal each month has always intrigued me. I could go for months with my period connected to the new moon, searching my thoughts and jotting down goals based on the moon and planets in my Magic of I Astrological Planner. I would plan which planet would be in my favor and when the moon would be at its peak, so I could reap the full benefits of my connection to the land. It brought me back to a time when our ancestors looked up at the sky to know when to harvest, when winter was coming, and understood that your moon cycle was a time to rest, breathe and go within. Thinking back this allowed me to monitor the changes and take full advantage to what my mind, body and spirit needed at that time.
Have you ever stopped to think about the relationship between your moon cycle and your menstrual cycle? Or asked yourself the question – should I follow the beauty of the moon and my cycle or not?
