The moon governs the ocean’s tides and it affects so many aspects of our planet. We, as women are part of this. The entire planet could not exist without the moon and its gravitational influence. Without the moon helping to keep the earth on a steady tilt, scientists have even imagined that life on earth may not have evolved the way we know it.
So it’s not mystical nonsense but something you are feeling and sensing but may not have known why. For centuries a full moon (or staring at a full moon) has been connected with lunacy — general craziness. In fact, “lunacy” comes from the latin word luna, meaning moon. A full moon is also supposed to send pregnant women into labor and make nursing home residents more agitated. According to ancient philosophers, the moon affects human behavior and health by its gravitational pull on body fluids.
A paper published in the Journal of Emergency Medicine (1987 ) claimed to find that 80% of randomly selected nurses and 64% of doctors in emergency rooms in selected hospitals believed that lunar cycles affect their mental health and moods. The paper also noted that 92% of these nurses said they should be paid extra—“lunar pay differentials”—during a full moon.
