Ready, steady, focus….It’s that time again, full moon manifestation magic. It’s no coincidence that the length of our menstrual cycles is synced up with the waxing and waning of the moon, occurring around every 28 days. If lighting sage, and writing intentions for the month fills you with dread and scenes of long haired hippy’s dancing around a fire casting spells I promise you its not, unless of course that’s what you want. 😊
Manifest your dreams
If you are a straight shooter and quite strategic in personality a good place to start would be thinking of mother moon as your life or business coach. Setting goals on the new moon that would make a huge difference to your life. Then halfway through the month during the full moon (ovulatory phase-if in sync) check back in. Are you on target? If not, ask why? Can you change anything for the next part of the month to get you back on track! This could be around weight, energy, fertility even relationships. It could be life changing if you allow it to be.
If you are synced up with the moon’s cycle, you will menstruate around the new moon and ovulate around the full moon. If we look back historically women were more in tune with their bodies and the moon. Why? It was a time before electricity, phones, food pumped full of hormones, all of which have an impact on our hormones. The moon was a guide to times of the day, month and year and it became a natural force of nature to be in sync as a woman. They were surrounded by the magic of the moon, sleeping under her every night so it was natural I guess it would happen.
The phases of the moon.
The new moon is traditionally associated with menstruation (day 1-7 cycle syncing) and if you find you get your period with the new moon this is known as a White Moon Cycle. Now the full moon is traditionally associated with ovulation (day 12-17 cycle syncing). That is not to say there is anything wrong if you’re not in sync with the moon. Everyone has their own unique pattern which is why it is a great tool to track and discover yours. Some women do get their period on the full moon and this is called a Red Moon Cycle.
The White Moon Cycle is the kind that is more commonly experienced. Historically this is down to the impact of light on Mother Earth and our bodies. Remember we are made up of about 60-70 % water. It has been written about for years the influence the moon has on tides and its movements. It would only make sense the influence she has on our actions, thoughts, and moods also.
The full moon is the Earth’s most fertile time with the influence of bright moonlight, which is where traditionally the association with the ovulation phase lies. It is also our most fertile time of our cycle. It’s important to remember that your body may not already be in harmony with the moon, and there is nothing wrong with that. But there are practices you can introduce that can help regulate your cycle. Why not get started by downloading my free lunar and menstrual tracker and worksheet to get you started!
Start aligning your female energy with the cycle of the moon.
Try to tap into the energy of the moon if your goal is to sync up your cycle and regulate. Ive been working on this over the last few months so I am proof that it does work if you decide to focus on some changes.
- Tapping into mother earth with walks under the moon and surrounded by nature. it can be a challenge when you live in a city but have start by having the intention in your head when you are out for your walk in the park or any green space.
- I have an amazing moon picture facing my bed- a full moon in a dark dreamy sky over an island off my native Ireland. At the time of buying this beautiful print I had not thought much about the moon or the magic that within her. I was drawn to the picture because I was missing home but I guess I know now she was making her way into my life in small ways even then. It could be little moon lights, or lunar books but placing reminders all around you will create the energy you need.
- Work with the phases of the moon to work towards your goals. I set goals around my eating, fitness, family, and work life during the new moon and use the full moon to re-cap and check in with those goals. What I have achieved and what is stopping me achieving them if not. Don’t let another month pass you by that you feel fed up and overwhelmed by everything in your life.
