How Does The Moon Affect The Body?

In Ancient civilisations, the Moon and the Moon’s phases had a deep connection to our body, health and our relationship with nature, connections we still consider now. The effects of the Moon on the body, both physical and mental health, can be experienced through the lunar phases, with modern research finding scientific evidence to support this. The following studies support a biological connection to the Moon:

In 2008, The Royal Liverpool University Hospital urological admissions were affected by lunar phases. The research found emergency urological admissions to be higher on full moon days. In contrast, the new Moon had a calming effect.

How The Moon Affects Humans – A History

In Ancient Chinese medicine and philosophy, the concept of duality, characterised as the yin and yang principle, observes the relationship we have with our opposites. In this relationship of polarities, the contrary forces are interconnected, interdependent, and needing each other to strengthen the power that exists within them.

In Astrology, the Moon is Yin, and the Sun is Yang. The Sun radiates heat and light, linking to the projection of our outward personality, how we shine, all that we show of ourselves to others, our vital force. The glow we see of the Moon reflects the Sun’s light, representing our inner personality and emotions. The Moon’s reflection of the Sun links our vital force to how we feel within our private and intimate thoughts and feelings. Our inner emotion has a relationship with expression and is projected, radiating through our vital force into our external environment. When our vital force has a quieter or darker expression, it can indicate a disconnection or a negative influence within our emotions. It is believed the Moon affects how we respond to all sorts of changes in life and on the body at a physiological level.
