So, you may have noticed that I haven’t been posting much lately. Well, to get personal (we can do that here, right?), I just haven’t been “feelin’ it lately. My mojo seems to be on vacation. And apparently, it may have been swept away with the moon.
I don’t know about you, but I definitely notice the effect the moon phases have on my mood. And it’s pretty common knowledge that women tend to “set their clocks” by the moon. So, I suppose it makes perfect sense that our energy levels and sex drive would follow the same path.
According to one website I visited:
· Estrogen levels rise with the waxing of the moon. Waxing moon means the moon is getting larger in the sky, moving from the New Moon toward the Full Moon. For women, this period often charges and energizes them; they need less sleep, feel sexy, alluring and receptive to sexual advances.
· As the moon wanes, or gets smaller, moving back toward the beginning phase of the New Moon, higher levels of progesterone prepare the uterus for implantation of a fertilized egg.
· During the dark period of the moon, the few days where it is not visible to the eye from Earth, hormones are at their lowest point and women tend to require rest in order to be refreshed and restored. Notably, during the three day period of the New Moon, when it is dark, birth rates are lower – reflecting lower libido and less energy for sex.
· The Full Moon, which is the peak of the waxing of the moon, is understandably the peak time of physical energy and emotional expression – and the time for peak sexual activity.
Yep, I can pretty much attest to these statements. So, I’m blaming the moon. And, if I follow the calendar correctly…I should be coming out of it around the 22nd or so. Hmmmm…this is definitely food for thought. When I go back to see when I post and how much I post, it does indeed seem to wax and wane with the lunar calendar.
Crazy. But, not surprising. Guess we’re all “lunatics” in some form or manner.
