Women and the Moon have a special connection and the reason behind is the most intimate thing that makes us women, and that’s our menstrual cycles.
The waxing, full and waning moon are associated with the triple goddess archetypes of Maiden, Mother and Crone, a new menstrual cycle, ovulation and bleeding/shedding, and the universal cycle of birth, life and death/transformation.
All mythologies have archetypal female figures corresponding to the powerful moon and mother nature. Some of them include Egyptian goddess Isis and Celtic Morrigan, Inca the goddess of the moon, the menstrual cycle, and a protector of women Mamma Killa, Mayan healing goddess Ixchel and Akna, goddess of motherhood and childbirth, maternal Greek goddesses Demeter, Selene and Arthemis, Roman goddess Diana, the Norse goddesses Frigg/Freyja.
Although all these deities are tightly connected to the sacred feminine, they all address different aspects of femininity. Depending on what you wish to awaken in your life or open up to, you can ask a particular goddess to empower you with her gifts, love and blessings.
Connecting with the moon goddesses and energies is quite simple. All you have to do is sit quietly in meditation, and summon the goddess you want to make a connection or work with on a specific matter by calling her name.
If you are not sure how to do it, here are some ideas regarding the most common issues women experience.
For instance, Ixchel will help with your menstrual cycle, Norse Frigg to improve fertility, and Isis and Moriggan to open your third eye and strengthen your intuition.
Remember, these goddesses ultimately represent your own sacred feminine qualities, so when meditating, connect with them in whatever way resonates with you—as goddesses in and of themselves, or as divine feminine aspects within your self.
There’s nothing more to it than inviting them and just sitting in meditation. Pay attention to your intuitive senses*, which are clairaudience (clear healing), clairsentience (clear feeling), claircognizence (clear knowing) and clairvoyance (clear seeing). Depending on which sense is stronger for you, you may hear, feel, know or see their guidance, presence and love.
One very important thing you need to realize is that calling these deities for help will actually open a channel to your inner goddess and her divine feminine gifts and talents. They may not be instantly obvious, but they will definitely manifest subtly in many areas of your life.
As you play with these rituals, know that you are harnessing the incredible energies and gifts of a time that can otherwise feel overwhelming and out of control.
All cycles in nature bestow us with their own gifts, and learning how to embrace the magical phases of the moon helps elevate our human existence into sacred experience. So let’s open our arms to Mother Moon, and allow her to take us in hers.
