Your period is called your lunar cycle for a reason, right? Maybe the two are simply connected, because the average menstrual cycle is about 28 days and the cycle of the moon takes so long. But there is even some scientific evidence for their correlation, meaning that this Sunday, April 29, the Pink Moon could affect your period and not only if you are actually bleeding, while this majestic orb is in you shine spring splendor
According to astrologer Linda Furiate, the Pink Moon is named after the "germinating grass and blooming (pink) flowers" that are related to this beautiful change of season. "It shows the first signs of spring," she tells Elite Daily. "The full moon is on April 29. On this day, the sun will be in the sign of Taurus, and the moon will be in the opposite sign of Scorpio." And Scorpio, explains Furiate, is the sign most closely related to your reproductive system.
Girl, make sure your heating pad and your ice cream are ready to go as fast as possible, because according to Furiate, the Pink Moon might suffice. This is a serious number on your menstrual cycle this weekend.
Furiate believes that the Pink Moon could affect your period in this lunar cycle by causing a more intense or stronger flow. In particular, she says, there could be an increased potential for cramping, constipation and flatulence, thanks to which not even really pink, Pink Moon. Finally, if you find yourself feeling more moody than usual, or that your PMS generally causes you more discomfort than you are used to, Furiate says you may feel that your "emotional temperature" is rising with this month Pink Moon
"When the moon is in the sign of Scorpio, we may have a stronger inclination to express our anger and frustration, two characteristics that are highly related to our period," says Furiate Elite Daily.
Alyona Mindlin, a yoga, meditation and spiritual coach, and founder of Awaken My Heart, reflects the findings of Furiate, adding that a full moon usually causes people to do things with more intensity across the board Experienced ̵
But listen, that does not have to mean all the tears and temperament on the Pink Moon. Mindlin says that this can also be a creative time for you.
"On the other hand, she can also go deeper into the power of her moon and be able to more fully connect to the moon's energy in the sky," says Mindlin. Basically, she says, since the Pink Moon is the first full moon of the spring season, it's an opportunity to dispel the drab mood of winter and get on with a completely clean slate. If you think about it that does not sound so bad, right?
But listen, if you do not believe in the power of the moon, there really is a science that supports it all – and some do not. For example, a 1986 study that tracked the time of 826 female volunteers between the ages of 16 and 25 found a "synchronous relationship" between the menstrual cycle and the "lunar rhythm", with about 28 percent of the volunteers reporting their periods New moon occurred. " But another recent study in 2013 found that there was not really a correlation between the lunar phases and the women's periods, "despite traditional beliefs," and despite "what some researchers have argued. "
If you ask me, it seems like the only way to be sure is to track your own lunar cycle, right? And the Pink Moon seems the perfect time to start.
