If you are a look at the moon person and inexplicably drawn to the moon, you are not alone. The moon has always held a mystical place in the history of humans. There have been many theories regarding the moon that have been written in urban legends and myths around the world as a topic of wide discussion. This is not by accident either but how this celestial body may govern and guide us without us even being aware.
As we spend more time outside during these warmer summer months looking up at the night sky, we are even more aware of the moon and its boundless mysteries. While werewolves aren’t a real thing except in legends, we appear to be obsessed with the powerful images moonlight and wolves can evoke. Speaking from a poet standpoint, we are deeply affected by celestial bodies in general, such as the sun, the moon and the stars and the countless poems it has inspired.
From the different lunar cycles of the moon ranging from half-moons to full moons to new moons, the lunar effects whether real or imaginary have become a part of our human existence. The astrological aspect holds much significance as this determines our zodiac sign from the month you were born and the entire list of traits associated with each sign. And these signs can determine your psychological make-up and behaviors.
We are surrounded by darkness during new moons and moonlight during full moons and these variations of light may impact our moods and emotions. And quite possibly, there are certain times of the month your sleeping patterns are disrupted, or you don’t feel quite like yourself such as fluctuations in your mood, for example, you are happy one moment and in the next, depressed.
We can even feel more restless or awake during a full moon phase and quite possibly this proves a connection between the moon and humans. Whether we blame it on the moon or the gravitational pull from ocean tides, or anything else for that matter, the fact remains, the moon holds an aura of mystery we find hauntingly beautiful and we can’t help but point a finger and say “look at the moon”.
