I taught a Moon Circle on the weekend, a gathering for Mothers and their Daughters about to enter puberty.
This group was very special, because I have known most of the Mum’s and Maiden’s for many years.
It was a big group and I had to choose which information I could leave out for an email, so the Mum’s could share when they felt it was the right time.
As I was writing it, I thought there are probably lot’s of Women out there who would like to know this stuff… so sharing here.

Hello lovely Mum’s,
I am still a glow over our day together yesterday.
Beautiful girls and Mama’s!
We covered a lot, and I felt it was enough to take in for one day.
So I have saved these few things for now which you can share with your girls when they are ready for another idea about all of this.
The phase of the Moon on the day of your birth is called your Lunar ovulation or Lunar Moon.
You also have the opportunity to ovulate on that same phase of the moon each month.
So my Lunar Moon is the 4 day old moon.. the tiny sliver that comes after dark moon.
What that means is that every woman has the opportunity or ability to ovulate/ conceive on their regular ovulation as well as their Lunar ovulation.
It doesn’t always happen, but it can.
A very important piece of info for anyone try to conceive, or not!
This phenomena explains many of those unexplained conceptions! (‘I don’t know how I got pregnant, I wasn’t even ovulating”)
That part of the info is for later with the girls.. but this next bit you can share now…
And just as your ovulation is a ‘doing’ and energetic part of your cycle, so too is your lunar ovulation. It is a time where your energy, ideas, creativity, inspiration are heightened and available.
You can find out your lunar return in an ephemeris, or there is even a Moon App that you can type in the date of your birth.. (if your moon app is northern hemisphere oriented, you will see it back to front to what I taught you yesterday) Remember Waxing Moon you can hold in your left hand, Waning Moon you can hold in your right hand.
Find out your daughters too.. this is very important for them to know when they are older, but great for them to know now in that it is a time of greater creative potential, and a special time for them.
If you are no longer menstruating (Maga or Crone ), or a Maiden yet to begin your cycle, or a Mother pregnant or breast feeding, you cycle with the Moon.
So the same feelings, actions and emotions apply to the phase of the Moon..
First quarter moon (Maiden, Spring) – newness, awake, emerging, energy, fragile
Full Moon (Mother, Summer)- high energy, outward, fullness, party time
Last Quarter Moon (Maga, Autumn)- coming in, harvest, preparing for the dark time
Dark Moon (Crone, Winter) – withdrawn, inward, sleep, dream, rest, reflect
Charting the Moon is a great way to practice for charting your menstruation. And a lovely thing to do together, reflecting on the phase and the energies that are at play.
For more info on all of this you can look at www.moonsong.com.au and see Jane Hardwicke Collings work, and purchase a charting book and a Spinning Wheel, which are both great tools for getting to know and understand these concepts.
Thanks again for the invitation to share my work with you and your girls, it was very special and a delight for me to do.
Love Talulah x
