Are your friends in serious pain over their cycle this month and telling you about it? Are you feeling bogged down yourself? On May 7, the supermoon entered Scorpio and it could be the reason why things are a little… weird.

The moon in Scorpio influences the genitals, anus, urethra, and prostate (who knew?!), causing those experiencing their period at this time to really feel it. For anyone who’s not cramping up, intense emotions, the overwhelming burden of tax season, and struggles with finances weigh particularly heavy right now.

In 2015, Indian born Canadian poet Rupi Kaur (@rupikaur_ ) posted a photo-essay depicting scenes of her menstruation called “The Period”. It was subsequently removed by @instagram because it didn’t comply with the site’s terms of service. With the photos she had written: “I see the way many communities avoid the menstruating woman. In some societies a woman is not allowed out of her home on her period even to go to high school, or she isn’t allowed to visit her religious place of worship because she’s considered dirty. By highlighting these distinct moments of the cycle that women go through I will be forcing viewers to look at and tackle their fears head on.” Rupi reposted her work and Instagram continued to remove it. It received so much attention that eventually Instagram offered an apology and said they had been removed my mistake. Rupi responded, “thank you Instagram for providing me with the exact response my work was created to critique.” #RupiKaur #ThePeriod
