In part. She sat down and pulled her necklace out of her shirt. I read about it in my mother’s journal. The Witches believe we are all parts of a whole. Like the phases of the moon. Together, we complete the circle and bring balance.
— Amber Argyle, Witch Song
The 14th or15th day of the lunar cycle is a Full Moon Day. New Moon, Crescent Moon, or Full Moon in science are taught and described, a result of the rotation of a celestial body around the parent planet, which is a large body just like our Earth. Though Moon is more than a satellite, it is the universal representation of the divine feminine force.
Sunlight is warm enough to comfort you, hot enough to roast you; the same light filtered through the Moon, evolves into a calm soothing touch, a cool silvery tender Moonlight. The gentleness breezing through the Moon perpetuates a bright hallucination on our physical senses, the life within our celestial bodies is mesmerized by the Moon Dance, and like the spell unfolding its hypnotism, we all at the moment are dancing and hallucinating in rhythm under the Moonlight.
Spells can too be enjoyable, maybe the moonlight is one of them. There are flowers blooming only under the moonlight touch. Flowers like the Moonflower, The Queen of Night, Evening Primose, Night Fox, and Evening Scented Stock are night bloomers, blossoming an intoxicating fragrance that creates a spell within a spell. A true magic spell activates all your senses, commands hypnotic salvation, birds, bats insects all flock to taste the flowers, the moonlight bloomers.
The effect is also experienced by other flowery beings, the reason why women's bodies respond and bloom at the progesterone peak on a Full Moon Day. In nature, everything functions in patterns, in cycles and we women are very much part of this cycle. The periodic cycle drives a girl's puberty, pregnancy, and menopause, women, therefore, are often portraited in cultures as the embodiment of nature, visualized many times as the Goddess or the Creators of Life. For Life comes into existence through a She!
MOON: driver of Feminine Force
In the cave paintings, oral folklores, anthropological records, Ancient cultures are observed performing rituals, offerings, cult members worshipping Natura various forms like the Sky, Rivers, Trees, Jungles, Animals, Sun, and Moon; these civilizations established unique connections with their surrounding habitat by accepting and embracing the cosmic soul force. Through worship, an atmosphere of devotion to preserve nature and reverence towards the infinite and unpredictable power was acknowledged. Folklores narrates stories of the Jungles, the rivers providing them the abundance of food, Sky gave a shelter roof, Earth the ground to thrive and survive, and therefore the nourishing Natura would continue to take care of the present generation and those of future, to live on happily and peacefully.
Moon, therefore has been worshipped by women across civilizations and cultures, perceived by them as an incarnation of the feminine energy. Symbols represent an idea of a concept, its perception, in this case, Moon can be taken as a symbol too, symbolizing the feminine power within us.
For some she came in a dream. For others in words as clear as a bell: it is time, I am here. She may come in a whisper so loud she can deafen you or a shout so quiet you strain to hear. She may appear in the waves or the face of the moon, in a red goddess or a crow.

The full moon causes water tide movement, as well as the energy movement within our bodies. Women periods are influenced by the Moon cycle.
WHY AND HOW?
My mother would often warn me to not cause her any trouble on the full moon or else be ready for the consequences. As a young girl, I couldn’t understand her words but as a woman, I feel and understand the power of moon energy. When high tides hit the continental rocks, splashes of saline water can be felt fresh on one’s skin. Likewise, the emotions within a woman's physical body (70% human body is H20) become volatile, at times high, at times low, creating the energy flow. The flowing energy hardly reaches a stable spot, the emotional tsunamis of happiness can quickly hit the rock bottom, making you feel anxious, confused, intensely low.
WHAT DOES IT LEAD TO
Control is a man-made word, for the men’s world. But we women are outside one’s control, we are wild, emotional beings running high on EQ. At one moment we are crying, at another moment laughing our teeth out.
…the Sacred Feminine is not new to the New Age. It is ageless and from the beginning. The Sacred Feminine is in our blood. It is our heritage. You have permission to say, ‘God is Woman,’ and ‘God is Me.
― Elizabeth Eiler, Singing Woman: Voices of the Sacred Feminine
As women, yes! we are not stable for we inflow, in tune with our feelings which makes it challenging for stability to walk nearby. Like all forces of nature, the force of nature is destructive too. Water flow sustains life on Earth, simultaneously it can destroy lives too. So Baby! don’t mess with a woman and you know why?
The deep Feminine, the mystery of consciousness, She who is life, is longing for our transformation as much as we are. She holds back, allowing us free reign to choose, nudging us occasionally with synchronicities, illness, births and deaths… But when we make space for Her, she rushes into all the gaps, engulfing us with her desire for life and expression. This is what She longs for, this is what we are for: experiencing the Feminine through ourselves. We simply need to slow down, and find where to put our conscious attention. And it is this, this willingness to look again, this willingness to put consciousness onto our places of unconscious, to express what we have always avoided, which starts the process of unblocking, so that She may flow through.
― Lucy H. Pearce, Burning Woman
You woman, are a cosmic sensation, a creation of cosmic passion. You are true to your senses, feeling what those senses are communicating to you, expressing your creativity, accepting but untamable, nurturing yet destructive, you are the harbinger of life.
EMOTION= ENERGY + MOTION
A MOMENT TO FEEL THE MOVEMENT
Guided by intuition, expressing life, accepting, receiving, nurturing, creative, is the divine feminine. And what Moon as it moves in the cycle, is bringing in touch the sacred feminity embodying within each one of us. We all become in tune with the sacred feminine energy on Full Moon! Just like men turn into werewolves! as have been told to us.
The silvered glamour of the Woman of the Winter Moon may be woman in her greatest power, woman in her guise as Elemental, as Force of Nature. This is woman to be revered. She is a concentration of feminine wisdom gathered and concentrated over the years, blended with the astral knowledge of the soul-star, and blessed by the traditions of the Sacred Feminine that she has made herself, or resurrected from Time, and passed living and intact to her daughters.
― Elizabeth S. Eiler Ph.D., Singing Woman: Voices of the Sacred Feminine
The Old was wise, worshipping Moon, they acknowledged the power, the Sacred Feminine. The tribal head was usually a woman, guided by their intuition, wisdom of ages, would help the tribe's members to move in a direction of respect, connecting with the divine that lies in the feminine and masculine forces. They knew life is about, association, respect, acceptance.
Moon is our connection to the uniqueness within us, the core of soul fiber, and the universal energy we are part of.
