Another point of view suggesting that women who bleed on the full moon may not be "out of sync" Should your period land on the full moon or the new moon to be in sync with nature? | Yoga Goddess | Prenatal Yoga Classes, Fertility Yoga, Kundalini Yoga Meditation, Yoga Retreats for Women | Toronto, ON
"There are two traditional patterns women’s cycles can follow – the Red Moon cycle or the White moon cycle.
You won’t find a lot of literature about women who cycle with the Red Moon. My guess is that’s because of what menstruating with the full moon represented in the past. According to Miranda Gray, this cycle was linked to the archetype of the seductress, the enchantress and the woman who knew how to wield healing power and magic. This was the kind of woman whose sexuality was applied to something ‘other than’ the formation of the next generation. She was considered by our patriarchal ancestors as the ‘evil woman.’
In truth, the Red Moon cycle belonged to the medicine women, to the mid-wives, the magic-makers and the wisdom keepers of the community. These women were not focusing their feminine energies to give birth to children. Rather their energy was used to empower other women and their communities."
"Fact is, we're the freaks, the misfit mutants surrounded by readily-available (and free) information about the evils of fat, the benefits of whole-grains etc. From an evolutionary point of view we're the weirdos with a short-life expectancy or we're trail-blazing a 'new' path." ~ AlanC
