The 4 phases of the feminine cycle. An spiritual approach

What is the feminine cycle?  


We women are cyclic like the moon. During one month we go through 4 phases and the menstruation is only one of them. We are continuously cycling.

The four phases are the following ones:


Whitch


Age correspondence: Embryo and first months after birth. And 80+ and death.

Season: Winter 

Element: Fire + water

Moon: Dark moon + new moon

Relation with world: Invisible world. The unconscious

Relation with ourselves: Totally inwards. Focused on yourself and becoming one with the cosmos. 


The witch phase is the end of the cycle, but also the beginning. It is death and rebirth. This phase is when we menstruate. On one hand, we are letting go of all the things we don’t need any more in our lives. On the other hand we are incubating new ideas and stages of our life. It is a phase to dream, rest, focus on oneself, letting go, journaling and introspecting A LOT. At the same time, it is a good period to be opened to let in ideas that you will start to cultivate. 




Maiden


Age correspondence: First years of life till 12-13 (when girls get their first period). 

Season: Spring 

Element: Earth

Moon: Waxing moon

Relation with world: Outside world. The conscious

Relation with ourselves: Focused on yourself and your place in the world


During the maiden phase you feel sociale and focused to the exterior. The world is your oyster and you might be full of energy, curiosity, and eagerness to be out and to be seen. 

This is not only a good phase to be outside, have fun and meet with people, but also to be working on the more driven part of your projects or the ones that require the most energy and mental clarity.  



Mother


Age correspondence: From 13 (nowadays 22-23) to 50s(pre-menopause)

Season: Summer 

Element: All elements

Moon: Full moon

Relation with world: Outside world. The conscious

Relation with ourselves: Focused on others


This is the ovulation phase. In this phase you have more sex drive, and feel explendid. Men might be more attracted to you and your skin might look better than ever (although some times with a couple of pimples). You feel very empathetic towards people, and love towards others might also be accentuated. It is a good time to do speaking events and other activities which employ showing yourself to others.

If you have an inner conflict with motherhood, or with your mother, you might have emotional problems during this phase. 



Enchantress


Age correspondence: From 13 (nowadays 22-23) to 50s(pre-menopause)

Season: Summer 

Element: Air

Moon: Waning moon

Relation with world: In between the visible and the invisible world. In between the conscious and the unconscious. 

Relation with ourselves: Focused on yourself interiorly


The enchantress phase can be very uncomfortable. You start going inwards in a journey towards your unconscious mind, and you are more sensitive to anything is going on down there. Issues that are present in your life start becoming noticeable and it can create a lot of discomfort. However, as Carl Jung once said: “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate”. So here we have the possibility to see what is running our life unconsciously, make it conscious, and let it go during the next phase.
