The symptoms of menopause can differ from woman to woman, but typically they include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and a decrease in sex drive. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, as mentioned before, you may be in menopause.

Can I Still Work With My Cycle When I’m in Menopause?

Yes, you can work with your cycle even when you're in menopause. In fact, there are a lot of ways you can support your cyclical living at this stage.

The first thing to do is to listen to your body. Menopause is a time of change, and your body will be telling you what it needs. Honor those signals and find ways to work with them. For example, if you find that you're no longer menstruating, you might want to try a different type of cycle tracking method.

There are also a lot of products and treatments available to support women in menopause. Talk to your healthcare provider about what might be right for you. And don't forget to take care of yourself emotionally, too. Menopause can be a challenging time, but it's also an opportunity for growth and change. Lean into that process and find joy in it.

How Can I Enjoy Cyclical Living in Menopause?

Menopause can be a difficult transition, but it doesn't have to mean that you're no longer in tune with the moon and natural rhythms. You can still live and work with the cycles even if your inner cycles are changing or gone.

You can start by tuning into nature, spending more time outdoors, and respecting the solar-lunar rhythms. Get to know the plants, animals, birds, and other elements around you, and connect with them on a deeper level.

Explore your creative side by painting or dancing; these activities can be very grounding and help you stay in tune with your body's subtle energies throughout this time of transition. You could also experiment with guided meditations to help keep things balanced while developing more self-awareness.

Your menopause is the inner autumn of your life, so there will be many of the aspects of your inner autumn towards the entire time you're in menopause. It's an inward time of your life, where you have all the power necessary to succeed in your plans. 

So, take time for yourself; this is an important time of transformation! Give yourself permission to be gentle, loving, and kind to yourself during this process—it will go a long way in helping you feel empowered as you make your own unique journey through menopause.

Supporting a Cyclical Lifestyle Doesn’t Require a Menstrual Cycle

Just because you’re going through menopause doesn’t mean that the cycle stops. In fact, a cyclical lifestyle can help greatly through this transition and beyond. The idea is to look at your body as a reflection of the cycle. You can honor its changing with the weeks or months and make decisions that support your body in its current state, whatever it may be at any given time.

This can mean recognizing when periods of rest are needed and creating space for them accordingly. It could be taking a restorative yoga class when feeling fatigued. Or making an extra effort to get eight hours of sleep when days feel more chaotic than usual. It might also be writing every morning as part of your self-care ritual—reflecting on your experience throughout the month in order to better understand the patterns in your body and life.

It’s important to note that there isn’t one right way to live in this new stage of life. What is essential is finding what works best for you, while also staying attuned to your changing needs throughout this period of transformation.

Support at Any Stage

It doesn’t matter what stage of menopause you’re in; there are so many ways to continue working with your cycle. Once you get to know your body, it can become easier to anticipate changes and plan for that period of life.

Whether you’re at the start of menopause or in the post-menopausal stage, being mindful of your cycle is invaluable. Even though you may no longer experience regular monthly cycles, this doesn't mean that you have to abandon your cyclical lifestyle entirely.

You can track your energy levels and moods and use this information to guide how much rest, exercise, and nourishment your body needs - all crucial components to living a healthy life as you age. And if you're looking for outside resources, there are tons of online communities dedicated to supporting women during this time.


The good news is that you can support a cyclical lifestyle at any stage in your life, and you don’t need your menstrual cycle to do it. You may find that some changes are necessary as you enter into menopause, but with a little bit of creativity and adaptation, you can continue to live a life that is in rhythm with the moon and the seasons.
