Menstruation or Menstrual Blood, also known as ‘period’, is the regular discharge of blood from the uterus through the vagina. The word ‘Menstrual’ derives from the Green “μήνας” and the Latin ‘mensis’ which actually means ‘month’. It is extremely interesting that the average length of the human menstrual cycle is similar to that of the lunar cycle. This is why Women and the Great Goddess have always been associated with the Moon and its Powers. Let me remind you, that the oldest calendars are based on the Lunar Circle.
Menstrual Blood Magic
In the ancient times, the first menstrual blood was a sign that a girl was attuning with the Great Goddess. The Menstrual Blood is an omen of the Goddess’s blood of immortality. It’s carrier of Life coming directly from its Source, the Great Goddess. A sign of Fertility, a sign of creativity and true Magic.
You can actually tap into its power once you understand that:
- During Menstruation you enter a time of Spiritual Fertility (contrary to your body’s infertile time, thus achieving balance).
- Your body may feel weak or tired but this is when your Sacred Feminine Energy is Awakened!
- The pumping rhythm of blood flow resembles to the tides of the Sea.
- Ovulation equals Full Moon – Menstruation equals New Moon, the time of your Full Magical Power
- Scientific studies have shown that peak rates of conception and ovulation appear to occur during the full moon. The Majority of Menstruation occurs during the New Moon.
I repeat. When Menstruating, you are entering the phase of your Greatest Magical Power – the Greatest Mysteries. The Time that equals with the New Moon, the darkest of Nights drenched in infinite possibilities. This is who you become!
Menstrual Blood’s Magic Lore

- Moreover, Menstruation is linked with the Moon. Hence as already said, it is linked with the tidal waves. This is why menstrual blood is considered to be an extremely potent attraction ingredient.
- Menstrual Blood is well known for its magical and regenerative powers. This is why when Witchcraft was condemned, the Sacred Feminine power was also hidden in shadows. In other words, Menstruation was ashamed because it was feared of its greatness. Christian menstruating women are usually forbidden from the great rituals.
- Post-menopausal woman are believed to be even more powerful in Magic. This belief comes from the fact that they no longer waste their menstrual blood.

Menstrual Blood Desecrated:
- It’s no secret that Witch Hunting usually focused on women. Why? Because it actually targeted the sacred feminine, a birthright for ALL WOMEN. Clearly, these religions who based their power in patriarchy fear the Magic all Women hide inside.
- It’s widely believed that Witch Hunts targeted the ones who survived the Old Religion. Witches were actually priestesses of of the Old Ways who kept the sacred flame alight. These wise women, knew the power of their menstruation.
- This hatred against menstruation and the Female Nature, probably comes from the Ancient Zoroastrian who is believed to inspire Judaeo-Christian religions. Zoroastrians associated menstruation with the evil god Ahriman and the “demon whore” Geh. Ahriman gave Geh the menstrual blood, an evil material.
- In Bible – Old Testament, it’s clear about Menstruating Women: Leviticus 15:19-33 “Whenever a woman has her menstrual period, she will be ceremonially unclean for seven days.” YEAP! 7 DAYS!
- In Christian Religion, women who are menstruating are considered impure. Does unclean mean empowered?
