Each one of us ( both Male and Female) can match up our emotional, physical, sexual and psychic cycles to the cycles of the moon. Both a woman’s menstrual cycle and the Moon’s cycle are 28 days. Although the match-ups will vary from person to person, women menstruate and ovulate during the same phase of the moon each month.
Men are subject to the same ebbs and flows, albeit on a much subtler level. I for one have mischievously taunted my husband by saying he has M.P.M.S.. He used to think I was just joking, but then he too realized that he did have more erratic emotions during the same time each month. A man’s cycles will attune themselves to the cycle of their partner – not unlike Women. I have noticed that when women work/live together for long periods of time their cycles also align with one another.
My own observations have shown me how Males are attuned to the daily cycle of the sun. This being shown by the majority of men experiencing erections in the early morning hours, rising as the Sun does. This is supported by research that shows a man’s daily Testosterone levels being higher in the morning and lower at night – matching the daily Solar cycle.
Research has revealed that sex hormone levels in men also rise and fall with the Seasons. Dr Anna-Maria Andersson and colleagues at Copenhagen University Hospital in Denmark, found that Testosterone levels as well as the levels of Luteinizing Hormone (the hormone that stimulates production of testosterone) peak in the heat of June and July and fall as the temperature do during the cooler months of Winter & early Spring. This would mimic the annual cycle of the Sun.
While I have not yet found the research that proves it, instinct tells me the same thing occurs in women on a subtler scale, just as men and their subtler attunement with the Moon. After all: As Above, So Below.
