    Hi EM, you wrote,

    Is it at all
    possible that the ancient cultures noticed a correlation between the moon
    cycles and the female's menstrual cycle? From that correlation they
    (brought from the REAL world to the abstract world) a certain mysticism in
    female... hence female worship (which was, and somewhat continues to be the
    seminal idea in the Wiccan religions.)

    << Female worship was to my knowledge the only one existing in those
    early days. It was later in history, somewhat around the period when we
    became farmers that the picture changed from female to male.
    Mother Earth, remerber !?
