"Though it is often known as the "curse" of womanhood, menstruation is in fact a time where a woman is at her most powerful and creative." -The Healing Power of the #sacredwoman
It has only been recently in the past few years where I have started to HONOR my #mooncycle
When I was 30 I decided to discontinue the birth control pill, not because I was experiencing any issues with taking it (unlike many women I know who have had crazy side effects) but because I intuitively felt the calling to honor my natural flow.
It wasn't until a few years after that when I actually began to notice patterns and "pms" symptoms. I downloaded the app #hormonehoroscope which helped me to keep track of my cycle and hormone shifts- which was especially helpful because I no longer an on a 28 day cycle. My cycle averages about every 26 days.
As an #empath my moods don't always match what is actually going on in my cycle.
This month will be my first month wearing a #divacup which has been outside my "comfort zone" for some time now.

Recently I have learned about the symbolic meaning during a waning #newmoon phase or waxing #fullmoon phase. It makes sense to me especially from an #astrological view.
Because my cycle averages every 26 days, my timing never stays the same. Which really reflects my natural rhythms unlike birth control where I was on the clock every 28 days.
Currently I am bleeding during the #redmooncycle which is bleeding near or on the full moon phase while ovulating during the new moon. This phase is experienced through women being more driven to bring their gifts, talents and wisdom out into the world which is exactly what I am experiencing at this time in my life. I even find when I am in this #redmoon phase I attract alot of important healing events in my life during this bleeding when I am out in the world.
This weekend is an example of this as I am participating in a very intimate women's workshop while bleeding my moon.
