" The Full Moon gets me everytime. Sometimes it brings me to my knees kind of depression. Other times I'm manic. Sometimes I get irritable. Yes, the Full Moon has a draw on me just like it does the waves on the ocean. "

" A full moon is an indication of "intensified emotions" as the moon's powerful effect on the planet is at it's highest when this occurs.

It's been noted that the cycles of the moon effect the tides of the oceans, and seeing as were between 70 - 90 water as humans it just makes sense that this would have some sort of effect on us.

In Astrology the moon is to the with the emotional side of us, our intuitions and so forth, and it has been noted many times that riots, fights and other emotional-driven events happen on full moons. "

" Me, too, Bridget, the Moon and I are good friends. (The Curse of the Were-artist)

We here in N.America are just leaving a last quarter moon, and are heading into a New Moon, on the 12th.

The next Full Moon will be June 26th.

Full moons are just really beautful phenomena, to me; mezmerizing from an artistic point of view. They've never had much effect on my moods other than that. But I have seen people use the Full Moon as an excuse to go doollally bonkers, and get mean and horrible. Not cool.

As a civilized human being, I don't find there's much excuse for being horrible, ever......whether it's the moon, or mental illness, or the cashier at the store was a wanker, or someone cut me off in traffic.

If I know I'm in a highly emotional state, I try and guard the public and people I love from potentially highly charged, negative, bad reactions I might have.

Just sayin'. "

" I agree with you 100% Azure, there is no justification to being angry and mean....However when you feel like a raw exposed nerve having salt rubbed into you keeping your cool sometimes doesn't work -- justified or not. Ter "
