Embracing The Crone
The Maiden, Mother, Maga and Crone aspects of a woman’s life arc are symbolised by the waxing, full, waning and dark moons. Menopause is in the Crone (or Wise Woman) stage. The word crone, often represented by the Greek goddess, Hecate, means ‘crowned one’, ‘sovereign’, or ‘wise woman’
In Native American cultures, menopause is viewed as a passage. It is the time when women hold their greatest power, because their blood no longer flows anymore, and the “wise blood” of life is contained within. In Neolithic times, Crone women were the tribal matriarchs. Their heightened awareness of human nature yielded great insight and they were the source of wise counsel for important decisions.
Menopause doesn’t have to be a dreaded curse of ageing during which we can look forward only to hot flushes and hormonal mood swings. According to Christiane Northrup, MD (Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom), menopause often marks the beginning of a woman’s most sexually passionate, creatively inspired, and professionally productive phase of life.
So What Does Menopause Mean For You?
Each woman will achieve her menopause in her own unique way. Menopause signals a time of change and change we must. The hormonal shifts that occur at this time, can bring about powerful changes in your life. Your body can be messaging you. It’s physical symptoms, asking you to take care of your own needs first now that you are no longer needed to be the carer for your family. Women are wired up to nurture, to be the caregiver, so this can be quite challenging for some of us.
It is a time of reaching into our depths, of using your powers of intuition and finding meaning in your life.
- What’s really important to me and my life now?
- Who do I want in my life?
- What do I need to let go of?
- What would I like to achieve in the coming years?
- How can I nurture and look after myself more?
Menopause, The Facts
- Perimenopause means ‘around menopause’ and refers to the time period during which a woman’s body makes its natural transition to menopause.
- Women start perimenopause at different ages. You may notice signs such as menstrual irregularity in your 40s or even earlier.
- The level of your oestrogen – the main female hormone – rises and falls unevenly during this time.
- Your menstrual cycles may lengthen or shorten.
- You may also experience menopause-like symptoms, such as hot flushes, sleep problems and vaginal dryness.
- Once you’ve gone 12 consecutive months without a menstrual period, you’ve officially reached menopause.

An aromatherapy massage formulated especially for women, combined with a reflexology session, for a complete de-stressing, relaxation, and revitalising treatment. While your muscles relax, your body’s hormones are balanced and your energy levels are recharged, leaving you feeling completely refreshed and invigorated.
With energy healing, you can look beyond the physical to work with the subtle energy systems, such as meridians, auras, and chakras. Chronic emotional stress, trauma, grief, and holding onto negative or fearful beliefs block the energy flow in the body. Additionally, the energy field can be affected by broken bones, falls, surgeries, and major illnesses. Our ability to function at our full potential is compromised by these blocks. During energy healing, blockages within the energy field are cleared, the energy field is repaired and rebalanced so that the body reaches its state of equilibrium and is able to heal itself.
