Many women menstruate either around the full moon or new moon. Menstruating during new moon is most harmonious and usually symbolises that the woman is living in coherence with her feminine nature. Those bleeding around full moon quite often are energetically depleted and may need a significant slow down in their lives.⠀
Menstruation is in some ancient cultures also called “moon time”. There is a great connectedness to the natural cycles in nature and we are all synced in. ⠀
Just as the Moon waxes (or grows outward into the night sky) until it becomes full and then wanes (or gets smaller) as if moving back into itself – so do we. ⠀
Sometimes she shows up fully, open, bright, reaching out. Other times – she covers her face, retreats, falls back, quiets herself. ⠀
We can be in the same pattern as the Moon. I find it really beautiful. ⠀
Moon is the most feminine planet. It is changeable in the same way as us – ever changing women. ⠀
🌑 What happens during the New Moon is exactly what our bodies invite us to do when we bleed – to hide and internalise. ⠀
🌕 Full Moon corresponds to the time of ovulation – the time when we are at the peak of ourselves, feeling energetic and social. As the Moon uncovers her face we are invited to uncover ours. We get more and more active and shiny. ⠀
