As our progesterone levels soar, the body is preparing itself to either be fertilized or to gestate a fertilized egg. It is not a time to strive, but to graciously accept the body’s invitation to siesta. You’re not lazy, and you’re not depressed. You are in your “inner autumn,” and your leaves are simply changing color. Dream away, my love. Let your body be nourished so you may more easily move into the next phase of shedding.
