The word “menstruation” is etymologically related to “moon.” The terms “menstruation” and “menses” are derived from the Latin menses (month), which in turn relates to the Greek mene (moon) and to the roots of the English words month and moon. Physically and energetically, our bodies are typically in tune with the moon, from the menstrual phase (new moon = planting seeds) to the follicular phase (waxing phase = taking action), to the ovulation phase (full moon = collaboration), to the luteal phase (waning moon = staying focused and completing tasks).
Taking the opportunity to slow down, listen, nurture and embrace your cycle connects you to your inner magic and divine feminine creativity. Taking cues from the symptoms you are experiencing and connecting with your inner wisdom will allow you to heal and address your relationship with your cycle. Is your body urging you to find a quiet space, meditate, write and take the time to just ‘be’? Or is she preparing you for an important transition in your life? Does she want you to nourish your body temple with more natural, balanced foods? Or does she want to you connect with the planting of seeds, fertilization and implantation of a new baby (literally – preparing for pregnancy, or figuratively – creating a new idea or project)? If anything, having the opportunity to check in with yourself during a time when your senses are magnified will deepen your self-awareness and practice of intentional living.
