Ladies and curios gentlemen, tonight is a full moon and in celebration of my first ‘sync’ I thought I would assume the alias of ‘Lunar Lady’ to delve into relatively unchartered territory. If you have no idea what I mean when I say ‘sync’ then you DEFINITELY need to keep reading.
How many of you know how far long you are in your cycle (men stay with me)? How many of you know when you ovulate? I ask these questions because up until about 8 months ago, I would have answered with a blank stare. I had been on the pill for nearly 10 years and was feeling a little blank, numb and empty but the mood swings were EPIC. So I decided to do some research (after a kind nudge from my partner) and learnt some interesting things about my lady bits but came across some pretty horrifying information on the effects of the pill.
I’ve always been pro-choice when it comes to contraception. And I still am, but I hope this post inspires ladies that are on the pill, ladies that want to learn more about their own health and men who want to understand what their ladies are going through, to do some research of your own. A great place to start is with a book called ‘Hormone Heresey: What Women Must Know About Their Hormones‘ by Dr. Sherrill Sellman. Ladies, if you are going to read one book this year, this is the one.
Women are lunar beings, we are supposed to flow with the lunar cycle. Many pre-modern cultures had a special place for women to retreat to during their time of bleeding to reconnect to themselves, check in and build sisterhood. Though I am barely skimming the surface, I hope this post tickles your curiosity enough to start cluing in to your health and spirituality. Education is power people.
Keep your eyes peeled for more adventures of Lunar Lady!
