The moon, that celestial body that has fascinated humanity for millennia, exerts a powerful influence over Earth and its elements. One of the most striking phenomena is the moon’s influence on the bodies of water on our planet, such as oceans and seas. There also exists an interesting and ancient connection between the moon and women’s menstrual cycles.

The Moon and the Tides

In fact, it’s naturally understood that the moon influences planet Earth in various ways. It’s known that the moon’s gravity affects ocean tides. The moon’s phases have also been observed to influence marine life, such as fish migration or the reproduction of certain marine species.

Tides are a direct manifestation of the moon’s influence on Earth’s water. The moon’s gravity generates a tidal effect on bodies of water, creating high and low tides in a constant cycle. This phenomenon is especially evident in oceans, where tides can significantly change water levels along coastlines and have a significant ecological impact.

The moon exerts an attractive force on Earth and its water, generating tides that follow a regular pattern related to the moon’s phases. During the full moon and new moon, when the sun, moon, and Earth are aligned, especially high tides known as “spring tides” occur. Conversely, during the first and last quarters, when the sun and moon are at right angles to Earth, more moderate tides known as “neap tides” occur. This cosmic dance between the moon and water influences marine life, navigation, and other aspects of coastal ecosystems.

Our Menstrual Cycle and the Moon

In many cultures, there has always been a belief that the moon influences fertility and women’s natural cycles. In fact, there are terms used to describe menstruation, such as “menstrual moon” or “red moon.” For example, some Native American tribes have observed traditions related to the “Red Moon,” considering women to be more powerful and more connected to nature during their menstruation.
