The Inner Seasons in Brief

The Inner Seasons Of Your Menstrual Cycle

Your menstrual cycle is an important indicator of your overall health and well-being. It is a reflection of your hormone levels, your diet, your stress levels, and your general state of mind. The average menstrual cycle is 28 days long, but it can vary from 21 to 35 days.

The Four Seasons

The average menstrual cycle lasts 28 days, with the first day of bleeding being day one. The four phases of your menstrual cycle are the menstruation phase, follicular phase, ovulation, and luteal phase.

The Winter Period

Your period (menstruation) is the first stage of the menstrual cycle. This is when your uterine lining is shed through your vagina. You may experience cramps, bloating, and fatigue during this time. However, periods can also be a time of rebirth and new beginnings. At this time it's very important to take good rest and care.

Spring Clean and Bud

During the follicular phase, you would have just ended your last menstruation. Your body is now preparing for ovulation just like in Spring when the flowers begin to bud. This is typically a time of increased energy and libido as estrogen levels start to rise. During this phase, you may also notice your skin and hair looking brighter and healthier. This is a great time to start new projects or take on new challenges.

Summer: The Season of Fertility

Around day 14, you ovulate and release an egg from your ovary. This is the most fertile time of your menstrual cycle. The inner summer is more about daring to be truly true to your own nature than anything else and about expressing your strength in the world. It's important to present yourself as you are.

Fall into Autumn

The luteal phase begins after ovulation. Your estrogen levels drop and progesterone levels rise. This can lead to premenstrual symptoms such as bloating, fatigue, and irritability. During this time it's very important to focus on yourself and your personal goals. Learn to say no and focus on your creativity.


Each phase of your menstrual cycle has its own unique set of hormones that affect your mood, energy levels, and overall sense of well-being. By understanding the inner seasons of your menstrual cycle, you can learn to make the most of each phase and support your health and well-being throughout the month.
