Phase 3 of the Feminine Lunar Cycle is the female full moon (aka ovulation). In Chinese Medicine, Yang Energy, Summer (Fire Element) is HERE. For the feminine this is a time to make the move into action. Governing over the Heart and Small Intestines. All this nourishment will assist you in supporting the burst of energy and your current focus.
In addition, if you are in the season of your life to make babies (or not), this is that special moment to make space for love making. The heart energy will support you with COURAGE and JOY.
During this part of the moon cycle, you will want to replenish the liver/spleen energy and nourish the heart. Below is a recipe that will do both.
