Menstruation and the Moon Cycle

Moon Cycle

The lunar cycle consists of 29 and a half days, shifting from the waxing moon of increasing light to the full moon of complete illumination, to the waning moon of decreasing light and beginning the cycle again with the waxing new moon of increasing light. It does not seem coincidental that the average length of a woman’s cycle is 29 and a half days as well, parallel to the moon’s cycle. A woman’s cycle shifts from new growth to the ovulation of full power and efflorescence into the energy of dissolution and full-circle back into renewal.
