Have you ever considered the practical magic of the moon? We’re all a part of this natural universe and intimately connected to all that is! Many spiritual paths teach that we come from Mother Earth in some fashion or another. Whether it’s from evolution or from the dust of the earth with the help of a Creator, we are one!
It’s often said that the moon is connected to the female monthly cycle. Even tea companies market special blends marketed as Moon Cycle or PMS tea. Magical practitioners often serve women as crystal healers, aromatherapists, and herbalists to create a treatment plan to assist and support them for overall wellness.
But have you thought about how similar we, as women, are to the moon?
The Moon is responsible for our ocean’s tide, making her intimately connected to our water energy. With her weaker gravitational pull, she exhibits the uplifting benefit of making us feel weightless from our worries. Since the Moon has no atmosphere, there is no sound and the “sky” always appears black. Drawing upon the energy of the moon can be beneficial in meditation as we seek solace and stillness.
The Moon’s rocky substance consists of Iron and Magnesium, both elements that women lose during their monthly cycle. Which makes our draw to the moon each month all the more understandable.
There is one thing we all have in common, our love of the moon.
Next we come to the magical name of the moon, Luna. Luna is known all over the world under different names, one of which is Selene. This is where we get the name, Selenite. Selenite is named after the Moon Goddess herself. She is the patron deity of our Mother Earth’s only natural satellite. Selene is a Goddess in the Greek Pantheon, often said to be riding her chariot across the sky. The crescent moon is sometimes likened to the bull’s horns, making a Taurus moon quite special.
When I’m working with Moon energy, I immediately go to my Selenite tools and the associated elements with herbs and essential oils.
Herbs associated with the Moon include, but are not limited to,
