The Female Energy Cycle
The menstrual cycle is a complex affair and can be viewed from many perpectives.
- Physically or biologically where the hormones produce real changes in the female body throughout the menstrual month so that women can have babies.
Lunar or moon based perspective, where the influence of the moon affects female fertility and emotional behaviour.
- Spiritually where the model of archetypes encompassed in the Female Energy Cycle provides a metaphor or description of behaviour or experiences common to most women.
So far, throughout this website we have looked the way your menstrual cycle is affected by your hormones and the moon.
Just as the moon waxes and wanes throughout the month so do you. You experience different moods, desires and aspects of yourself (and being female) depending upon where you are in your menstrual cycle.
You are influenced emotionally, mentally and spiritually by an invisible energy system of personalities. I have called this invisible energy system the Female Energy Cycle.
The Female Energy Cycle contains a pattern or blueprint of feminine behaviour. And just like the lunar cycle there is a distinct order, system, ebb and flow to the way these feminine archetypes appear within the Female Energy Cycle.
