Subject: Full Moon Effects On Humans

Written By: Philip Eno on 01/22/08 at 4:39 am

Over the years I have noticed a few things regrading a Full Moon.

When I was at work at the time of a Full Moon, the phones calls from customers would bear more than usual strange and awkward questions. Friends of mine that work in shops have noticed this too, customers hang around on the shop floor, asking silly questions and not buying anything.

A friend of a friend of mine is an actor who used to work with the late Spike Milligan, who is known for his eccentricity and his "ten major mental breakdowns". The actor tells of that he (Spike Milligan) was impossible to work with at the time of a Full Moon.

In history and folk lore, werewolves are renowned to be more prominent at Full Moon.

The word lunatic derives from lunar meaning moon, and the moon commands the water on Earth with tides. Could it be that the moon effects the waters of the human body too?

Have  the members here noticed any this before?

To add more to the above.

It was a Full Moon on the day of death of Spike Milligan (27th February 2002).

I am a firm believer that the full moon affects peoples moods and attitudes.  It is my understanding that the police and hospitals tend to pay attention to the effects of the moon.

Police lay on extra policeman on the nights of a Full Moon from BBC News Online.

Concerning "werewolves"-

The tales stem from an actual medical condition called "Hypertrichosis".
People who suffer this malady have excessive hair growth, which never fully stops growing.
However, electrolysis treatments have been shown as effective for keeping the growth in check.

Concerning the "Full Moon Syndrome"-

I know without doubt that the New and Full Moon cycles affect behaviors.
Whenever there is a Full Moon, things ALWAYS get crazy...even by my standards.
It does affect me, in certain ways.

Full Wolf Moon - January Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January's full Moon. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Old Moon, or the Moon After Yule. Some called it the Full Snow Moon, but most tribes applied that name to the next Moon.

It's very possibly subconscious; some people may, in the backs of their minds, think about how one might act differently during a full moon.

I have my own theory about the moon's effect on human physiology. I'm thinking that since the moon's gravitational pull has an effect on the tides, then surely it has an effect on our bodies as well. Meaning: that during a full moon, we're all just a little bit lighter. And this ever-so-slight difference in our mass has just enough effect on us to alter our state of mind.

As far as my own personal experience with this, well, the only time I really noticed any changes in myself due to the lunar cycle was when I was a long-distance truck driver. Normally, when I was driving at night I'd eventually get really tired. But whenever there was a full moon out I could go like hell.

From an astronomical viewpoint, I can see where this theory of yours has validity.
In fact, it could be viewed as a polar subtraction of sorts, and when the full moon goes, there is a polar re-addition. That's pretty insightful!

Rather than make us lighter, it would elongate us and make us less massive. Full moons and new moons have the same affect on the Earth, as well as eclipses. Maybe we should be looking for these things at new moons as well!

full moons don't actually affect the moon's gravitational pull, do they? they just provide more light at night. that's what i think the effect is, the brighter night somehow makes people batty.

During a full moon, the sun and moon are on opposite sides of the Earth, causing a greater gravitational pull on the Earth (collectively) and pulling it in both directions a little bit more, I believe.

Which effects the mass of water on the Earth with the tidal system and the water consistency in the humans.
