Can the Moon Affect Your Life?

· May 23, 2015

Have you ever asked yourself if the moon can affect your life? Have you ever noticed that the lunar cycles notably change your personality and mood? They say that the earth’s natural satellite influences you not only physically but also emotionally from childhood and throughout your life. Find out more in the following article.

The moon is more than our planet’s only satellite. It is a huge mystery for various reasons. It is present in our entire existence and you should know a little bit more about it in order to take advantage of its benefits.

A study by the Basel University in Switzerland showed that the moon has a great influence on the perception of sleepsince it can be subjective or objective according to the lunar cycle. That is why the days when we are closest to the full moon, the cerebral activity related to deep sleep reduces by 30%, it takes longer to fall asleep, and you sleep for less time.

Different Changes According to the Lunar Cycle


According to the moon’s position, its influence can occur one way or the other:

New Moon

This happens when the satellite is in conjunction with the sun and begins a new cycle. This is the best time to set new objectives. This applies not only to future projects, but also to quit smoking, starting a new diet, detoxing from alcohol, etc.

In the psychological sense, the mind has more self-control and is more serene in order to overcome the shortages because of changes in habits and eliminates excess more easily. It also helps to meditate, detox the body, trim trees or sick plants, or cut your hair if you want it to grow faster. It is not good for waxing because hair will grow faster. The new moon is also great for exploring hidden parts of your conscious. This phase lasts for no more 2 to 3 days.

Crescent Moon

When the moon grows brighter, your body will also begin “absorbing” everything quicker and more of it. In this phase, the body assimilates any substance or event differently, which is why it is great to begin a vitamin diet. Be careful because it is also a risk period for gaining weight (unless this is your goal).

The crescent moon is good for recovering shortages because it is true that if you eat something, your body will resist going back to normal. That is why we don’t suggest drinking alcohol during this time because its effects can be even more harmful. If you want your hair and nails to grow more, this is the time to cut them. Applying ointments, gels, or creams to regenerate hair is great because the skin will be even more receptive. Detoxes can be more difficult and persistent.

This phase lasts around 13 days. We suggest doing activities that are revitalizing or strengthening. In regards to the economy, they say that it’s good to ask for a loan, look for a job, sell, or invest. It is also great to create contracts, partnerships, or associations. You should not trim fruit trees.

Full Moon

This happens when the moon is opposite of the sun and it is full of light. Body tissues are under great pressure and this can also cause distancing of feelings. This means that the instinctive side of the human being “wakes up” (which is why, according to popular belief, the werewolf appears during full moons). The body retains more fluids and tends to get bloated easier. You will need to pay attention to what you drink or eat. Sensations, emotions, and feelings will be “skin deep” and psychosomatic problems, sleep change, insomnia, nightmares, or more colorful, real, and intense dreams can all occur.

During the full moon phase, we don’t recommend starting weight loss diets. Be careful with the side effects of medication. Avoid headaches, which can be intense, and keep your sense of humor: don’t take everything seriously or start arguments. It lasts a few hours and its effect is truly noticeable, for example, your injuries will bleed more, as well as menstruation for women. Doing a scheduled surgery can be risky. It is common for people to be more aggressive. It is believed that everything you do 6 hours before and 6 hours afterwards will be successful. Births increases and nerve related diseases increase. People with thin hair can cut it during this phase.

Waning Moon

The body will “get rid of” anything it doesn’t need, which makes it ideal to release a lot of the accumulated energy from the previous phases. You can eliminate fats, fluids, and toxins easier. It is a good time to start detoxes or purification cures, and reduce bloating or irritation.

We suggest doing activities that require strength and resistance, drinking more water to get rid of everything that is bad, starting diets, cutting your nails and hair, removing warts, eliminating dark spots, and treating scars. Tooth treatments and surgeries are more successful. It is also the time to plant and trim fruit trees, vegetables, and tubers. In regards to the emotional side, it is good to end a relationship or partnership.
