Tonight is the occasion of this cycle’s new moon, which actually marks the beginning of the 28-ish day cycle. The new moon fails to grab our imagination like the full moon, for the simple reason that one is the presence of lots of light, and the other is not. We’re simple like that, no?
The other approximately 28-ish day cycle is that of the female repro-system. You – if you’re a male – probably fail to give much attention to this. Our half of the species prefers to slide right over the mechanics of internal lady plumbing, a reasonable response given as how there is a) nothing we can do do change it, and b) no input at all required from us.
Two important points are worth noting for men.
1. Women’s estrogen levels vary (sometimes alarmingly) during their cycle.
2. They don’t like it (for the most part) any more than us.
So in a sense, we’re all on the same page.
