Autumn is a really magical time – the leaves turn colourful, the air becomes cool and crisp and our intuition is heightened.
It’s a season that speaks of personal power and transformation and standing in our sacred Yes and No.
But autumn doesn’t only refer to the outer season, it’s also closely connected to the pre-menstrual phase and the perimenopause transition. And these can be quite challenging experiences for many.
Luckily, both the archetype of the Witch and the Hindu goddess of death, destruction and motherly love, Kali, offer you valuable lessons on pre-menstrual rage, pre-menstrual tension and perimenopausal mood swings and how you can navigate them all with more ease.
In today’s episode I dive into:
- What the Witch and Kali Ma teach us about the pre-menstruum and the perimenopause transition
- That “witch” once was a gender-neutral term
- How rage can be sacred and cleansing
- Why the truth, though it sometimes hurts, is profoundly healing and liberating
- How the season of autumn, the pre-menstruum, the waning moon phase and perimenopause are all interconnected
