Lunar Libido: The Moon and Your Sex Drive!

Our ancestors didn’t have facebook, cable TV, cell phones or any other options for entertainment come the end of a day's work. They did, however, have the night sky to ponder and tell tales about.

Imagine living in a time before everything could be explained scientifically; the possibilities for the meaning of life were most likely endless without scientific reason, explanation and fact to hem in the creativity of the viewer. In many cultures, the Moon was seen as a Goddess, a deity that performed her monthly ritual of being born, growing to fruition and then dying.

As we started to make the connection between the cycles of the Moon and the cycles of menstruation in females, we saw more than just mathematics as a correlation between the two. Because both the Moon and the female body seemed to go through a massive transformation every 28 days without dying, it was assumed that the beautiful, glowing orb that waxed, waned and disappeared had to be female.

So would this not make a female also a goddess? Perhaps. There are oodles of indications that point to this very notion: the female body as a sacred vessel -- but not in the least bit chaste. The Moon as Maiden, Mother and Crone in her respective lunation phases was seen in many cultures as a deity who had many lovers but no permanent partner. The Goddess always had her sexual appetites satiated. Imagine a time before marriage, before women and land were owned, when sex and sexuality were sacred and never divorced from worshiping the Divine.

Without electricity, women generally start their menstrual cycle at the dark Moon, allowing the shedding of light to be aligned with the shedding of the body. This leads to a natural ovulation cycle that correlates to the waxing or full Moon. People are cyclical creatures: seasons, clocks and rhythms govern everything in our life.

Women are perhaps more attuned to this cyclical way of life, but not necessarily. However, when women are tuned in to the rhythm of their bodies -- and, for that matter, the Moon -- there are times during the month that they will be on the hunt, sexually speaking. Generally this happens around the time of ovulation, for obvious reasons. There are definitely points in a woman's cycle that pique her sex drive more than others.

There's a major misconception that women aren't as sexual as men. Women may not have the same quality of drive, it may wax and wane with the Moon, but just like the Goddess of ancient times, that appetite demands to be fed!
