For one full lunar cycle, keep a journal of all the cycles you go through. Keep track of:
- your overall feeling of the day (happiness, sadness, depression, excitement, etc.)
- your physical state (lethargic, energetic, aching, normal, etc.)
- and if you're menstruating, keep track of your cycle as best as you can (when you ovulate, if possible, when cramps or other symptoms begin, when you start bleeding, when it ends, etc.)
For example, one entry may look like this:
Tuesday February 21
Moon: New, Pisces
Felt lazy, but content.
Ovulating; minor cramps.
At the end of the month, look over your "journal" and try to pick out patterns. If none emerge, try keeping a log for a few more cycles.
You can also keep a log of the moon phases and signs along with your dream journal to see how your dreams change throughout the month. Also, some women have more vivid dreams during certain times in their monthly cycles, as well as during pregnancy.
