It is easier for us to understand ourselves on a deeper level when we connect to nature and the environment around us. As we experience four seasons, there is a natural rhythm to the universe. The gravity between the moon and the Earth causes ocean tide. The moon influences such mechanisms of our life on Earth, it is believed that it can also affect us physically and emotionally.
Some people call menstrual cycles “moon cycles,” and many women have experienced synchronicity between the phases of the moon and female menses in their lives. The average menstrual cycle lasts 28 days and it is about as long as a moon cycle. Interestingly enough, some studies say the full moon can also affect a person’s quality of sleep.
The Moon doesn’t change its size but the shape we see changes as it moves through its phases. The moon reflects the Sun’s light on its surface and it takes about 29.5 days to make a full cycle from one new moon to the next new moon. So as human beings, we experience many different phases in everyday life. We can say our mind and body are believed to have a connection with Moon Cycles, can't we?
