We all know the full moon affects the ocean and the tides, but does it have an effect on people too?

Many policemen and women will tell you the crime rate is much higher during a full moon. Some doctors also claim that the emergency rooms are busier during this time.

What do you think? Does the full moon affect people's behavior?

I think it does. Since it seems to affect liquid (ocean water) perhaps it affects blood too, which is also a liquid.

Things always seem crazier when there is a full moon. I don't know why.

As a teacher, I've seen kids act up often enough when there's a full moon, to believe that it does influence people (at least children anyway). How it does though, I sure don't understand.

I definitely believe that moon cycles, seasons, atmospheric pressure - all of nature's rhythms - have a more profound influence on us than we realise. It's just that modern living has made us less attuned to it.

I believe it does.....I've seen people act very out of character when the full moon is out.

It affects me most right before the full moon. Or maybe it's that, by the time the moon is full, I've gotten control of myself!

I think this makes perfect sense...the moon controls the tides...we're something like 70% water...how could it not affect us at some level?

Yes, definitely. Ask any police officer or any bartender!

I was thinking mostly along the lines of blood, when I posted this. But you right, we are mostly made of water. It seems weird to me how something hundreds of thousands of miles away, in space, can have such an affect on us. But apparently it does. Undecided

That is something I will NEVER understand!

Someone has to be the odd one out, and this time it's me Grin.

A No from me. All those alleged phenomenons, all those bartender, midwife, policeman, or whoe-else-not experiences are cases of selective perception.

I'm just reading a scientific book. Interestingly, it has one (small) chapter about the full moon and its alleged effects. It is about a scientific experiment in a German hospital. All nurses, midwifes, doctors on the obstetric unit swore that there is an effect. They said: in nights with the full moon, significantly more children are born. (I had heard of this believe before, it's quite common).
Over two years, they made a statisitc, for everybody to see. A red dot for a baby-girl, a blue dot for a baby-boy. After the two years, no significant difference was found between full moon nights and other nights.


Personally, I have never felt any effects of the full moon, nor has anyone in my family. I do like the full moon very much, it's beautiful, it has something dreamy to it, and I like it even more since BBM.
But effects? - No.

I voted Yes. I was raised by the seaside, within earshot of the ocean, and have vivid memories of lying awake at night, listening to the waves breaking on the nearby beach. I was told, at an early age, that the powerful king tides crashing upon the beach were a direct result of the Moon's magnetic pull. So when I found out that the human body is primarily comprised of water, it seemed logical to me that we too are probably also influenced by the Moon.

I really like the fact that the full moon is the same all over the world no matter what season it is. The sun blazes or wanes and changes the state of affairs on the earth, but the moon's effect is more subtle...and it affects everything all over the earth.

The full moon is coinciding with the autumnal equinox. How neat is that?  Cheesy

I wonder whether powerful magic can be worked--more powerful than usual--when the full moon and the equinox coincide?

THey don't exactly coincide, but very close. The equinox is this evening (in the Eastern US time zone) and the full moon is tomorrow morning.

Powerful magic? Apparently you can balance an egg on its end during this time!! Might be a good time to try some experiments!!

Me too!

I love the moon, esp the full moon.

Sadly, I've never been able to take any good pictures of it, probably I need a better camera to do it.

The full moon was beautiful last night from a balcony in the South End, wispy clouds floating by - a very "Brokeback Moon".

No planets were visible either because of clouds or lights. We observed that the boys would have been off the Mountain already separated a full month.

Later on there were some sprinkles, but they didn't dampen the company or conversation.

Sounds heavenly!! Did you talk of dogs you had owned, the draft, or anything involved with threshing?

Hey, from the bedroom window in my new apartment, I can see the moon!!

It's shining above the trees in the park across the street!

Later in the evening (around now, 9.30) it disappears above the roof, but until then it shines through my window!
