On a recent trip to Morocco, my family's tour guide, Ben Mohammed shared with me that in his culture, this is one of the highest compliments a woman can receive.
I understood it immediately--a woman is most beautiful when she flows with the natural rhythms of life.
The moon is symbolic of the sacred feminine energies of the cosmos--it receives the light of the sun in order to shine. The moon is cyclical, and women tend to mimic this pattern in all areas of their lives. The women who recognize and utilize it are at the peak of their feminine power.
Women are in the height of their power when they flow with the natural rhythms of life. She works smart, not hard--she knows there is a time to work and a time to rest. She knows when to shine and when it is best to lay low. She knows when it it best to flow with the current and when it is time to swim.
Women, like the moon, are flexible but always steady. She is consistent, predictable, but ever-changing, always evolving.
Women are mysterious. She will never fully reveal all of herself: while she is full and bright, she reserves parts of herself away from the world at large, knowing her inner temple is sacred space that can only be accessed by those deemed worthy.
Women have long associated with the feminine powers of the moon and recognize a familiar energy with the lunar cycles. Connect to the sacred feminine and empower your life by attuning to the natural ebb and flow of the lunar tides.
