    Does it have an effect on people's moods?

      Frogs synchronize their mating activity by the full moon. The same can be said about people's mood?

        Yes! I think people are hornier under a full moon!

      The gravitational pull could have a little effect on us since it might make us more optimistic at this time of the month. It could also make criminals more active also in commiting whatever crimes they do.

      I often use the moon to represent karma. When a person (the moon) wanes (commits wrongdoing), then it will always cycle around to wax (hit that person) into a full moon (putting that person into a predicament they didn't want to be in). So in other words what comes around goes around and the time of the Full Moon will be either the best or worst of that person's month.

      Tell me if you don't understand that.

          What type of Indians' astrology are you talking about? People from India or Native Americans?

    My son's project is "The effects of the full moon and people's behaviors and Mood Changes"
    I guess there is evidence behind inmates in prison being stranger during the full moon. (Stranger than ususal)

    If the Moon's pull is able to make tides and also pull the earth's crust up, which it does, why would it not affect us too? I even feel lighter during a full Moon. LOL

      Remember, the full moon isn't any bigger or heavier than a half moon or new moon, it's just reflecting more sunlight because of the angle...

      Great, so I'm asking you.
      Oh ur saying the classroom is different?

      1. rebekahELLE profile image91
        rebekahELLEposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        I'm no longer in the classroom, but we always knew when there was a full moon, the days before and few days after. there is generally more activity and with the young ones, more aggression and the need for movement. the pull of the tides is enormous power. sometimes like ralwus, I am more peaceful, other times I can't sleep. smile

    I suppose it can, though the gravitational effect is immeasurably small, emotionally though the sight of a full moon under the right circumstances can effect us greatly!

    I don't know about it being immeasurable, but that's some power to pull up the crust of the globe. I saw that recently on the science channel I believe.

    A friend of mine was a corrections officer and he would try to take his days off when there was a full moon.

    An interesting study came out recently that found people win in casinos 3 days before, during and after a full moon.

    For some reason, people's power of thought (I hope I win) is stronger during the full moon.

    Hmmm....

      TimTurnerposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Let me clarify my post....More people win around the time of a full moon than the rest of the month without a full moon.

    If it has such an effect, there must be a way to tap into
    that energy in a good benficial way.

    I think most nurses will tell you the full moon has a definite effect on many people.  OR nurses dread the full moon because it means an increase in emergency cases. 

    I can also say the full moon affects me. I would know when it occurs without having to see it.  I experience an increase in energy and a decrease in inhibition.  This has gone on for as long as I can remember.

      Same here. It's impossible to sleep when it's full moon.

    I so feel that the full moon has a great effect on people and I can feel it myself. For many years I workded as a hair dresser and we would often have a giggle about the bizzare episodes with clients on and around the Full moon.

    If one takes into consideration of how the full moons affect the tides of an ocean---high and vibrant--than consider that humans are made of 70% water--it is easy to see the correlation between the two... Just how the full moons affect each is surely unique.

    working with people with dementia, i have to say, that on a day when every patient is trying, and i jokingly say.... "is there a full moon," there actually is sometime around the few days that the patients seem more difficult....

    From what I have read, being interested in this, science tends to say that contained water is not affected by the moon's pull (and our bodies are presumably considered containers ehre) and statistical studies do not tend to support the idea of different behaviour (looking at schools, hospitals and police reports), but there has been interesting work done with oysters!

    Apparently, away from their natural habitat, they still respond to tidal shifts in that original habitat (opening and closing), so it may be the moon has influence here - if so, they are surely 'contained' too.

    If you want to see for yourself hang out in a bar or an emergency room during a full moon.  You'll get your answer. Talk to the bartenders and emergency room workers for some really good stories.

    Very often, during a full moon, I have difficulty sleeping.  When I do sleep, I tend to have dreams that are more vivid than usual.

    My next-door neighbor had some things stolen from his yard, and he blames it on a group of kids in the neighborhood. He swears these kids became more wild during a full moon phase, and were out and about doing things they shouldn't.

    Babies, babies and more babies.  Concieved during a full moon and more delivered during a full moon.  Don't know the science part of it, just know it's true.
