Full moon, super moon, harvest moon….this being the last full moon of the summer gave me pause to try to find an answer to a question I have had for a very long time. What effect if any does the moon have on me – mind, body and soul? Maybe a second question would be; what about different full moons throughout the year, how does that affect me? Or does it?
A little research will certainly shed some light on this query. While observing someone moody, angry or having trouble sleeping — you have no doubt heard the line “it must be the full moon”. I wonder if the moon gets an unwarranted bad wrap.
Let’s have a look ;
Beginning with the knowledge that when the moon sweeps around on its orbit in the sky, a thin reflecting light is seen on earth as a crescent moon. Once the moon is facing the sun, it becomes quite the showpiece from our view ~ a full moon. The full moon in all it’s glory, even today has believers in its mystical powers. An article titled * Lunacy and the Full Moon
Does a full moon really trigger strange behaviour? Jan 27, 2009 |By Hal Arkowitz and Scott O. Lilienfeld ~ reads… “Even today many people think the mystical powers of the full moon induce erratic behaviours, psychiatric hospital admissions, suicides, homicides, emergency room calls, traffic accidents, fights at professional hockey games, dog bites and all manner of strange events. One survey revealed that 45 percent of college students believe moonstruck humans are prone to unusual behaviours, and other surveys suggest that mental health professionals may be still more likely than laypeople to hold this conviction. In 2007 several police departments in the U.K. even added officers on full-moon nights in an effort to cope with presumed higher crime rates.”
Whether you are having trouble sleeping or you are very moody can you blame it on a full moon? My 5 year old grandson was awake at 4 a.m. this morning….can it be? It is most certainly well known that the tides and nature itself is affected by the moon but what about humans? Another article found online titled * Troubled sleep or mood swings? Blame it on the ‘supermoon’ By The Bristol Post | Posted: September 08, 2014 By Sophie Prideaux reads…
“One astronomer, Andrew McLean, a member of Bristol Astronomical Society who has a PhD in Physics, who said there is no proven way a supermoon effects humans.
He told the Bristol Post: “The phrase supermoon refers to the occasions when a full moon coincides with the time when the moon is at or near its closest point to the earth, which is what will occur tomorrow.”
“There is actually no real effect on people, it’s just a nice visual phenomenon, and interesting to some astronomers who study the orbits in detail, or who make photographs to show the varying sizes.” Interesting to say the least. Much more research is in order, absolutely.
Does this answer my questions. Not entirely, but I will say this, I will be ready for whatever this lovely nightlight has for me. Allowing the full moon’s energy to have a positive effect on my mind, body and soul. I will think positive thoughts and meditate and find my place of sweet serenity under the light of the full moon.
