You're Silly If You Think You're Immune To The Moon's Affects

She's bold, she's big, and she's beautiful. She greets us every night when we go to bed. It's safe to tell her all of our secrets. She won't tell a single soul, they are safe with her. The moon cares for our soul in a way no one else knows how. Yet, how does the moon affects us beyond our wildest fantasies?

The moon affects the ocean tides, and likewise we are majority made up of water. Our brains are made up of over 70% water. Besides that simple fact, there are many instances of the full moon affecting people. Such as more dog bites are reported and medical people notice a difference in their patients. How true these instances are, and whether you believe them is largely up to your individual belief systems.

There are also many folktales I've noticed about the phases of the moon. Such as it's wise to cut your hair during the waxing moon to promote faster hair growth.

Beyond that, if the moon can wreck an entire ocean, why wouldn't it affect us? It does in our emotional processing and decision making, even if it's slightly.

You're a lunatic if you think you're immune to the affects of the moon.

In fact, the word lunatic has it's roots in the moon. Luna being the root word of lunatic and translating to the moon. Lunacy is insanity cause by the lovely moon. These are only a few examples of how the moon affects us culturally, socially, and potentially in our scientific core.

I know it deeply affects me in not only those ways, but in my spiritual practice of witchcraft. I follow the phases of the moon and base my magickal workings around them. The new moon is new beginnings. Waxing moon fertilizes those beginnings. Full moon is the height of those workings. The last stage before the next new moon is banishment and reflections. Then the cycle repeats.

The moon is a magickal and powerful being, and every known thing in the universe sends out ripples in the cosmos. The moon and ourselves being no different.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
