Women and the Moon
The Moon has long since come to represent women but the power of the moon is much more than symbolic in a woman’s life. For example the average menstrual cycle of approx. 28 days and mirrors the length of days from one Full Moon to the next.
The 40 weeks of pregnancy lasts not 9 months calendar months but 10 Lunar Months (10 Moons). Many labors begin in the wee hours and research reports more births around the full moon and more conceptions during a waxing moon.
So women are definitely influenced by the Moon and that is probably why the Moon has become a symbol for the Feminine.
The Full Moon
The Full Moon is a mirror of the power, clarity, brightness, beauty, and magic a woman tuned into her femininity possesses. She is a reminder of your true, brilliant nature.
What about the Winter Solstice? Well, in plain language, the Winter Solstice is the longest night of the year..the beginning of the end of the dark days (in the Northern Hemisphere). Night time (and the Moon) has long been associated with the Feminine Energy.
The longest night of the year then, represents a peak in the Feminine Energy. and that is why many sacred temples were specifically designed thousands of years ago to allow the rays of the solstice sun (a symbol of the masculine) to enter following the longest night…receiving the energy of the masculine when the feminine power is at its highest.
This year the Full Moon and Winter Solstice fall on the same day. so it is an especially powerful opportunity to tap into your Feminine Wisdom. There happens to also be a total lunar eclipse too. the Universe is giving us big clues..this 21st of December is IMPORTANT For YOU.
How are you going to reconnect with your Feminine Energy?
