In our “fast paced” life style women’s period cycles have gone haywire. What is the importance of menstruating with the new moon?
A woman who is healthy on every level (physical, emotional, sexual, mental and soulful) will naturally menstruate on the New Moon or Full Moon. The White Moon cycle is a menstrual cycle that bleeds during the New Moon, whereas the Red Moon cycle is one that bleeds during the Full Moon. Many women’s cycles tend to be either a White Moon cycle, a Red Moon cycle, or a Transition cycle where the cycle is moving from one orientation to the other.
The White Moon Cycle according to legend, mystical arts and yogic philosophy is the most preferred cycle for inner work as a woman is naturally pulling her energy in, and able to utilise her vast rich resources for the expansion of consciousness. The White Moon will be linking with her Emotional, Mental and Soulful energies.
The Red Moon Cycle is one where the natural tendency of the woman will flow externally, outwards into her community and circle. Here is a cycle where the woman is giving her rich resources, and inner, alone time will be at a minimum. The Red Moon will be linking with her Physical and Sexual energies.
To orientate your cycles towards the White Moon, consciously link your womb to the moon in meditation, prayer, journey work and ritual. Ask for your womb to align with the White Moon Cycle, consciously linking your awareness to bleed on the next New Moon. It is in fact very simple and easy to do this.
