The Blood Moon represents menstruation, her moon time

Moon Time

by Liz O'Neill

Blood moon time for her

Her moon time

Time of inner purification

Purification of the body and spirit power

Power of Grandmother Ocean to wash

Wash away the pain of woman

Woman, carrying the burden of giving

Giving life, losing life, carrying family

Family joy and happiness, sadness, and sorrow

Sorrow to be cleansed by Grandmother Moon

Moon time


The Native American culture honors woman for all she does. The Blood Moon is a time to observe the lifegiving power. The Blood Moon symbolizes the time of menstruation.
