Superstitions about the full moon's effect on animals and humans have been Long-running. The most famous and terrifying of those are the ones about werewolves and vampires, who transform into bloodthirsty creatures from their human form as night falls and moon lit up the sky.
Werewolves have been a part of western folklore for long. ‘Were’, means man in old English and all myths point to a creature, part man and part wolf, which hunts down humans in the cover of dark. Vampires are different from these animal – human hybrids, they are immortal demons of the dark, who feed on human blood. Some folklores also says that they disguise as bats, when not in human form. Blood sucking vampire bats bolstered these popular beliefs in the medieval era and are much feared tiny creatures till date. Modern day fiction has capitalized a lot on these popular myths of the old world and even went a step further to portray vampires and werewolves as arch rivals.
Moon plays a very crucial role in all of these myths. These creatures are evoked and become most powerful during the full moon. astroYogi tries to provide a logical reasoning for Moon’s crucial role in these legends: Moon’s effect on earth and its beings has nothing to do with myths and legends, and are scientifically proven. But what remains a gray area in modern science is the moon’s impact on our emotions and destiny. Myths and legends are mostly exaggerated versions of real life incidents and phenomenon, science is yet to substantiate the influence of moon over brain with facts and figures. Much of Vedic astrology is based upon moon’s impact on people’s life. We have talked specifically about moon’s impact on men and women in our old articles. It is true that the moon can’t transform you into a bloodthirsty creature on a full moon night but; it is a fact that the moon has serious implications on your moods and emotions. The scientific fact that substantiates this is the hormone level variations in our body during the moon’s cycle. Moon’s physiological impact does not limit to the hormone levels in human body it also impacts reproduction, in particular, fertility, menstruation, and birth rate.
Now the fact that the moon can bring on some aggressiveness like the werewolves and the vampires is substantiated by the fact that the there is a correlation between the number of crimes, and suicides to the lunar cycle according to studies.Moon has a good hold over animals- the better half of wolverine (pun intended!), too. For example, moon affects hormonal changes in insects, reproduction of fishes are in tandem with the moon phases. Birds will not be having variations in melatonin and corticosterone (hormones) which they experience on a daily basis on a full moon night.
To conclude, we can say that Moon is influencing your body and mind substantially. Consult our expert astrologers online to get more insights about the moon’s impact on your destiny.
