The influence the Moon has on all Living Things

 

Long ago humans lived in harmony with the different rhythms of nature, this was important to guaranty their survival. They adapted to the climate they lived in as the words show which were needed to describe something. Like the Eskimos who live in the harshest climate, they have some 40 different words to describe snow. Only 2 of those words describe the right type of snow to build igloos.

 

Learning by observing Nature

By observing nature people were able to discover many important things.
They discovered that the moon had a big influence on things like the high and low tide, meteorological happenings, the fact that animals, in general, showed certain behavioral patterns depending on the moon position. Like birds which would gather nest building material at a specific time so that after a rain the nest would quickly dry.

Also, a certain type of works like when does one log a tree, different work in the garden, harvest certain vegetables or fruits so they last longer, the influence the moon has on operations and treatments. All these things are subject to nature’s rhythms. So it is not the knowledge about a certain thing or the action one takes, it has to do when this happens for it to be successful or not.

Throughout the generations, this knowledge was passed on but by the end of the 19 century, it suddenly got forgotten. Modern technology and medicine took over. People had less time and were not willing to wait for results, only in faraway regions it somehow survived.

Modern farmers scolded and laughed about the knowledge their parents wanted to pass on.
With the usage of pesticides and artificial fertilizer, it looked as if everything was getting better and bigger but how mistaken we were. The same applies to medicine. Every time stronger pills were needed to battle new illnesses bringing us further away from nature.

 

 

The Moon and its different Phases

Going back to nature and taking the moon phases into consideration life would be a lot easier.
The moon has a cycle of 28 days.

The new Moon has for a short time a special impulse on humans, animals, and nature itself. If you fast on this day it has a special healing and preventive effect. This is also the day to start something new like for example stop smoking. A sick tree being trimmed on this day can regain its health again.

Waxing Moon is the phase where all nourishment we are fed builds up and strengthens. As the moon gets bigger the healing of wounds gets more difficult and it becomes unfavorable to have an operation. This is also the time, until the full moon, when more babies are born.

Full Moon

 

Full Moon is the phase which shows a big influence on living things. Wounds will bleed more, people start walking in their sleep, and herbs which are collected at that time are more potent in their force for healing. Do not make a major cut on a tree as it might die. Police will ask for more personal as now there will be more crime to battle. Midwives have to work double.

 

Waning Moon

Waning Moon. During this phase, operations are more successful and all housework somehow is easier to do. Work in the vegetable garden like sowing and the planting of under the soil growing small plants will benefit from this phase.

 

My own experience with Moon Phases

On operations one can say the following: the closer to full moon the less favorable it is.
The best time is during waning moon and I made my personal experience with this knowledge.
When in 2007 I was told I needed a total hysterectomy I asked my gynecologist if we could program this according to the moon phase and my zodiac sign.  Each zodiac signs rules an organ and or region of the body. Apart from the moon phase, an operation should not be done when the moon is in your sign and neither in the sign of the to be operated organ or area.

Well, he knew me for quite some years already back then and he said yes, knowing I would insist on my wish. I did my calculations and luckily one of the chosen dates was available. He told me afterward that all those present in the operation room were amazed at the little blood I lost with a 20 cm cut. I also recovered rapidly and was out of the hospital sooner than expected.

When to order a dish of Mussels

I live in the south of Spain and love eating mussels in a restaurant on the coast. I was told many years ago that there is a difference in size depending on when I order this dish. They are harvested in Galicia, north of Spain short before or after the full moon. About a week later they are on your plate nice and big. Ordered a week or 2 later they turn out to be really small as the ones harvested have reduced size considerably.

 

Conclusion

I would like to give a household tip ending this post.
Modern houses often suffer mold which can be extremely bad for your health. When the moon is waning is the right time to attack this problem. Use water with vinegar and a natural brush, your effort will have a longer lasting effect.

Taetske, I so much enjoyed reading your article. It made me wish I had taken more notice of moon phases throughout my life. I remember that my father, who was a wonderful gardener, used to plant according to moon phase. I’ve known many people who plant ‘by the moon’, as they say.

It was interesting reading about your surgery. It was great that you surgeon knew you well as many surgeons may not have been so obliging.
I had major spinal surgery nine years ago. I don’t know what phase moon was in but I think it must have been right for me. The surgery was very major and my recovery was amazing, so much so that my doctor told me that the surgeon said I was his star patient. I’m sure the moon played a big part in that event!
I will return to your website as you have some very interesting articles that I know I will enjoy.

For now, thank you very much Taetske

    Good morning Valerie,

    Thank you for visiting my website and also telling me you found the article interesting. Of course, it just was a small post like the tip of the iceberg so to speak. So many more things can be said and one could go much deeper into this fascinating subject. Here on my farm in the south of Spain, I try to follow those rules as best as I can. Wishing you all the best.

    Regards, Taetske

Enjoyed reading your post. I have never thought about the moon before in this way, but i love reading about things like this! Made me look outside to see if it was a full moon or not! I liked learning about the new moon and how on this day it is the best time to start something new. Just in time for new year resolutions! Maybe i can try my diet on the next new moon. Will definitely pay attention to the moon from now on.

Love your site and has many interesting articles.

    Good Morning Jenny,

    Thank you for visiting my website and leaving a comment. I hope you downloaded your free PDF?

    It is quite amazing to find out what a big influence the moon has on all living things. I am happy I did the calculation before my operation so the whole thing was a lot less traumatic and I recovered so well.

    Here on my farm in the south of Spain, the moon phases are very much taken into consideration especially when in January the whole garden is pruned. It is important for the roses, bougainvillea, vines, and other bushes and trees.

    Happy to hear you liked this article, hope to see you again.

    Regards Taetske
