Astrology and Female Health: Learning To Love Your Moon Cycle
Do the phases of the moon impact menstruation cycles? Can we work with astrological energetics as a tool for healing and relief during painful periods? Although there is no scientific data proving that lunar and menstrual cycles are correlated, we can draw alignments between the timing of New Moons to Full Moons and the 28-day cycle of menstruation. Furthermore, astrology can be a useful tool to help tap into our own subtle bodies and support physical well-being.
Meditation guide, writer, astrological intuitive, and motivational speaker, Hannan Siddiqui, has studied how to utilize these various modalities in order to heal and support her own feminine health.
The uterus, the womb, is the creator of life, and within it holds some of the most powerful manifesting energy. It is the part of us that is not only the home for new life to spawn, but is the strongest connection we have to the earth, the atmosphere, and the cosmos. When a period is tracked correctly, a bleeding person will notice that their cycle begins either on or directly around either the new moon or the full moon. This is due to the fact that the cycle of moon phases, much like the menstrual cycle, averages about 28 days.Hannan Siddiqui
