Are your friends in serious pain over their cycle this month and telling you about it? Are you feeling bogged down yourself? On May 7, the supermoon entered Scorpio and it could be the reason why things are a little… weird.
The moon in Scorpio influences the genitals, anus, urethra, and prostate (who knew?!), causing those experiencing their period at this time to really feel it. For anyone who’s not cramping up, intense emotions, the overwhelming burden of tax season, and struggles with finances weigh particularly heavy right now.
If the supermoon’s time in Scorpio has felt especially dark for you, a light is just around the corner as the new moon enters Gemini on May 22. So, hang in there extra tight! The current supermoon has been named the ‘Full Flower Moon’ for its association with spring’s blossom, so caring for your own flower is essential.
Here’s three natural remedies for easing uncomfortable pain during the supermoon:
1. Water And Heat, Heat And Water
Drinking plenty of water and placing a heating pack across your lower abdomen/pelvis is a trick to calming period pain that never fails.
2. Try Some Fennel Extract
It’s been discovered that fragrant fennel seed contains ‘anti-spasmodic‘ properties, helping to relieve bloating and cramping. Pure fennel extract and fennel tea can be comforting to sip on during your period. Try your hand at the recipe below.
3. A Sprinkle Of Cinnamon Does The Trick
