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

It affects more then you might think.

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.

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!


Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid,, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).
