2020 Menstrual-Moon Calendar

At the beginning of every year, I bust out my calendar, alongside a ruler, paper, and pen, and I draw another calendar for charting my menstrual cycle along with the moon cycle. Here is my 2020 version:

How to use:

The calendar is on a 28 day cycle, which is why some days of the month overlap. Upon the first day of your cycle (the day your begin bleeding), circle that day and draw a line to cover all the days you bleed.

If you know when you ovulate, circle that day in a different color.  Some people feel ovulatory pain or bleeding, but if not, this can be determined with further charting of fertility signs.

The comment section can be personalized to your own needs.  I use it to keep track of PMS symptoms like cramps, acne, mood shifts, etc.  I create columns of these symptoms and mark the presence of the symptom with an X. A larger X indicates severe symptoms, while a smaller x indicates mild symptoms.

I find it helpful to put all of this down on paper so I can notice patterns over time. At the end of the year, I compare this calendar with years past.  I also get a kick out of comparing my cycle to the moon’s; a mysterious connection indeed!

Feel free to use this calendar and format as you see fit…
