We live in a male driven society, where we constantly need to perform at 120 percent and we women think we need to go along with that. We often think that we are not respected when we ask for a time out/ time off during our menses. We as women have this emotional depth and wisdom within our bodies. We are the channel for creative energy, birth, a host for life and death. Rather than embracing that we are blessed with our blood, we try to control it and start taking anti-conceptives to still be able to perform above our capacity and not be owned by our moon, rather than living it with confidence and grace.
Our moon, is an opportunity to consciously check in again and reflect on the previous month. It is a mirror of how we have been living our lives. This often can be confronting especially when we suffer from hormonal imbalance, strong bleeding, strong cramps, or premenstrual syndrome (PMS), we then take the easy way out to pop a pill, to not be feeling what we have to feel.
