Circular Time Management for Femme-Preneurs
Ever feel like you just can’t get ‘on top’ of all the ‘stuff’ you need to get done in business?
It’s no wonder femme-preneurs feel that way in a man’s world of linear time where everything feels like it needs to get done all at once.
Women in contrast are attuned to circular time.
Our energy, moods and impulses are attuned to the moon and impacted by our moontime (menstrual cycle). As a woman, relating to time in a circular is liberating and affirming. I liken it to having a metaphorical shelf for time. There is a time for everything and everything is in it’s time. Enjoy this at a glance peek into how the moon cycle supports us as rebel femme-preneur’s to manage our energy (and the tasks we desire to accomplish) in tune with the moon.
It’s all about managing our energy, instead of time.
WANING MOON: This is the time when our energy begins to recede. It is time to start wrapping things up and finishing tasks that have been weighing on you (ie: invoicing, clearing or reorganizing clutter) so that your life, your home and your business feels spacious. This time of clearing is essential to make space for your new moon visions. You will be more easily able to slow down, relax and rejuvenate during the new moon because those annoying unfinished tasks will no longer be taking up space in your mind.
FULL MOON: The full moon is when our energy is at its peak. Now is the best time to push hard to accomplish that which we envisioned during the new moon. Give yourself permission to work hard and play hard (big project undertakings and development here). If you want to stay up until the wee hours of the morning and ride on the momentum, give yourself permission to flow with it, if you feel so inspired!
WAXING MOON: During the waxing moon, our energies are starting to rise again, making the time ripe to start preparing the soil so it’s fertile for upcoming projects (restructuring, foundational work, putting structures and systems in place to support what we will be doing next). Now is the time to get out there and start planting seeds (ideas and new projects) and to communicate (meetings and planning).
NEW MOON: This is the time of the month that we are naturally encouraged to become more introspective and introverted. Our energy is at its lowest, making now the best time to rest and rejuvenate. It is the perfect time to vision, set intentions and nurture our creative side. It is also the perfect time to just be with and make sacred space for deep conversation with the women in your life (masterminding).
It’s all about managing our energy ladies, so that we have the time for what really matters to us!
