"In ancient times, the moon was known and worshipped as The Great Mother, whose feminine essence was contained in the dark, fertile places of a woman's body and in the blood that flowed from the womb each month. From Her, all life came forth and will at the end, return to Her again. It is She who nourishes, heals, and guides us. It is The Great Mother’s gentle, magnetic pull
and beautiful light that calls down our blood." 
 From 'You are Woman, You Are Divine'
