|Writer's Block: Full Moon Fever
||[Dec. 12th, 2008 @ 12:36 am]
It's the full moon today. Almost every culture has its share of lunar lore, from werewolves to lunacy to true love. Do you believe that the full moon affects our behavior or do you think it's a myth?
As someone who falls under the zodiac Cancer, whose planet is in fact the moon I completely believe it. "The moon has a direct influence on the mind which can be seen and felt in varying ways during each unique phase of the moon. This is particularly hard for those who are slightly unstable as the pull that the moon exerts on the tides is also felt in the brain fluids, making the effects of mental illness more enhanced. This is how the asylums came to call their inmates 'lunatics' as they were worse, or more dangerous, during the full moon." I also believe some people are truely nocturnal and thrive better under the moonlight versus the sunlight. I don't believe in the supersiticous aspects, but believe it can affect our behavior and moods.
