Cycling with the full moon is called the Red Moon cycle, and it’s the cycle of the archetypal Wise Woman: the healer, the magic-maker, the wisdom keeper.
Historically, cycling with the full moon indicated energy that was considered suspect in the culture.
The Healer–the woman who knew how to wield healing power and magic–was also seen as a seductress and enchantress. This was the kind of woman whose sexuality was applied to something other than the formation of the next generation. To our patriarchal ancestors, this meant an ‘evil woman.’ In truth, the Red Moon cycle belonged to the medicine women, the midwives, the wisdom keepers of the community. These women were not focusing their feminine energies to give birth to children. Rather their energy was used to empower other women and their communities.
So if you bleed with the full moon, your energy is focused on self-actualization, and on using that self-actualization to empower other women.
If you’re on a Red Moon Cycle, you might want to ask yourself:
Do you desire self-exploration and self-expression?
Has your role of mothering children completed?
Is child-rearing a role you’re postponing for the future or not planning on at all?
Do you feel called to be a healer or wisdom-sharer, to dive deep into your depths to develop your self-awareness and then turn that energy outward to help the world?

The Day I Became a Mermaid
Little girls often fantasize about being mermaids. I loved to swim when I was a kid, so naturally, I lived in the water as much as possible, pretending to be a mermaid, a dolphin. Water is like air to me, dreamy like heaven. Free. I left day-dreams of Mermaid-ing...

Don’t Look Back, She Said
Do you believe in true love? I do. And I truly wanted to believe that I had found it; he was mine, I was his, we were meant for one another. I gave it my very all, every essence of my being. Blood. Sweat. Tears. What I came to realize was that my BEing was evolving,...
My Best Friend, Anger
There was a time when I felt like I was damaged goods. I thought my mind was broken beyond repair. No professionals ever told me I was broken. I hadn't been diagnosed with any particular mental illness or handicap. But I thought, maybe they were just protecting me...
I’ll Take a Frontal Lobotomy, Please
I would sit there in the therapists' office, day after day, telling her I just wanted to be normal. I simply knew I didn't feel or think or even talk, like most people. I was kind of odd. I would easily cry in random conversations. The slightest things could trigger a...
