Menstrual Cycles and the Seasons

When I was in Austrália I met a wonderful wise woman Jane Hardwicke Collings. She is a midwife and an expert on women mysteries.

I really identified myself with her vision about menstrual cicles and want to share with you some of her words.

The best way to connect to the earth is pay attention to the menstrual cicle, because it happens regularly and can teach us so much!

The menstrual cycle replicates the earth going through the seasons. The first week of the cycle is like the end of winter and beggining of spring. The second week is late spring to Summer peack on the ovulation (Summer solstice). The third week is late Summer early autumn. The fourth week is late autumn and early winter.

The second half of the cycle, from ovulation to bleeding is like autumn and winter. And the energy of autumn and winter, it is to let go everything. The fruits and leaves falls from the tree, it is time of harvest decay and death. That’s what is going on in the womb, the ovule is released of the ovary, if it’s not fecundated it decay and die and the bleeding happen as if it was the leaves falling.

Our culture is not alined with this wisdom, and these last weeks of the cycle are label as disease, called premenstrual syndrome. Everything that is not working in a women’s life shows up at this period of the cycle so she can let it go with the blood and start refreshed on week one and week two … and then let it go again.
Being able to understand this cycle that we play out every month and it is playing out with the moon every 28 days… is so liberating! Birth, growth, harvest, decay , death, rebirth… over and over! Just diferent speeds for diferent things in life.
