Tapping into the rhythms of the moon is so much fun! It can bring a lot of healing and compassion for ourselves. Especially women, because we can see the connection to the moon and how it constantly ebbs and flows, just like we!
The moon can invite us to understand our own rhythms, our own cycle, and that we are not "crazy" for constantly changing. The female cycle is connected to the moon, compared to men that are more connected to the sun - their cycle is a 24 hour cycle.
This doesn't mean that you can't connect to both!
I LOVE connection to the sun, it brings to much life and healing - I will share more about sun gazing and how to use the sun as a potent energy in your life in another post.
In this post I want to quickly share about the different moon phases and how you can use the energy in your own life!
Living in sync, means to live in flow with your own rhythms, your own flow and the universe - not to fight your life and the flow of everything else around you.
You might literally miss so much by just being in constant "flight or fight mode", because you are letting life happen to you instead of FOR YOU!
You are in way more control than you think. Truth is, we are kept from these teachings because self-knowledge is VERY POWERFUL.
We are taught from a very early age that we are suppose to believe certain things.
WE ARE PROGRAMMED in schools ad by society to fit in.
We are taught that certain things like the moon, sex, masturbation, menstruation, orgasms.... are bad, but truth is these things can connect you to a very deep a spiritual part of yourself.
A very very divine place - more connected to Source.
I mentioned in a previous post, it's not about worshipping the moon, but learning that the moon brings a lot of wisdom that we can use for ourselves.
There is NOTHING "bad" with our blood, following and understanding the rhythms of the moon, having sex, wanting pleasure.
I believe we have been disconnected from it, so we can't understand our own power.
Because empowered people think for themselves, and they will start to question everything around them.
"Moon Phases refers to the different appearance of the Moon as seen from Earth. There are 8 main phases of the moon: new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter, and waning crescent. These phases repeat themselves about once every 29.5 days."
LA LUNA - The different phases of the moon:
New Moon - Begin again and think about what it is you want to call into your life.
Waxing Crescent - Allow your dreams to unfold, and let go of attachment, trust that the universe is working for you.
First Quarter - You might feel resistance and doubt coming up, allow yourself to breathe into discomfort and take small steps towards your dreams.
Waxing Gibbous - Great time to take some aligned action!
Full Moon - The full moon can illuminate things that are not "working in our lives". Have you ever noticed that you might feel more easily triggered around the full moon, or maybe you can't sleep? I have friends that work in hospitals that have told me that "things get weird around full moons". The full moon is a great time to "take inventory" of what is no longer working in your life.
Waning Gibbous/disseminating - Recenter your energy, what cam e up during the full moon? What are you getting ready to release from your life?
Waning/Third Quarter - A time to look at your past and think about your future. Can you see patterns in your life that is holding you back? Allow yourself to bring self-awareness to your patterns
Waning Crescent/ Balsamic (Dark Moon) - Reflect, rest & RELEASE! This is a great time to do a ritual to release what is no longer serving you so you can allow yourself to call in new beginnings with the new moon.
Dark Moon = For me I have seen it to be the end of the waning crescent time, right before the new moon.

The Moon and menstruation
All life form has cycles of birth-growth-death-renewal.
In ancient times women menstruated together on the moon, in red tent, were they shared stories (HER-story), were they passed down wisdom from generations. They respected the flow and its connection to the natural world.
Syncing with the moon can help you get in touch with your natural rhythm, and to be in more harmony with nature. The Moon's cycle is 29 1/2 days just like the female cycle.
