Affects of the Moon on Emotions
The Full moon can cause violent behavior. There have been studies proving that there are more incidents of homicide and aggravated assaults around a full moon. While not everyone will turn violent, I have definitely noticed that I tend to be more aggravated and quick to anger in the days approaching a full moon.
Full Moon can lead to a lack of sleep which affects your moods. Ever notice a few days before a full moon you suddenly start waking up earlier or not being able to fall asleep? Studies have shown that we tend to experience less time spent in the deepest phase of sleep nearing a full moon, which then affects our moods.
Full Moon can make you feel more introspective. Have you ever noticed a few days before the full moon you start to reflect more on your life and what’s happening in it?
A full moon can make you feel more anxious, it brings about more energy and unless you’re doing something with that extra energy it can cause nervousness, make you feel manic, and cause nightmares.
The full moon can make you go from being very loving to very combative, which in turn, can make you feel crazy.
The Moon & Emotions
I think the best thing we can do for ourselves is keep track of the moon phases. Be mindful of the days before a New Moon or Full Moon. Become more aware of what’s causing you to feel a certain way, especially when it’s out of character. The one thing I’ve made the mistake of is not realizing until it was too late, like the moon is already full. I wonder why I’ve been insane for the past week. Too quick to anger, totally out of control at times, not sleeping well. Feeling “frisky, like really frisky,” and then just as quickly not wanting anything to do with anyone. Then all of a sudden, I’m like, oh, the moon is full tonight, and the next morning I feel fully released, back to normal.
Hope this helps with some of the things you find yourself struggling with. The great thing about the moon is that it does tend to bring things to the surface. If you can keep control of your emotions by realizing what’s causing them, you can benefit from the moons phases greatly.
