That Moon Magic

Nangi drop

It’s no joke—the Moon really does affect life on earth.

Nangi Fine Jewelry

For centuries, people have believed that the Moon affects human behaviour.

Recently, scientists have found proof that it actually does!

Werewolves, Lunatics and Preggos

In folklore, there are many tales of the Moon making an impact on us.

Perhaps the most known story is that of the werewolves, humans who can transform into wolves, but only during a full Moon.

Both Greek philosopher Aristotle and the Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder believed that madness and epilepsy were caused by the Moon.

The Latin word for the Moon is “luna”, and the word “lunacy” derives from the Latin lunaticus, meaning “moonstruck”.

Pregnant women are also rumoured to be more likely to give birth on a full Moon, but there’s no current scientific evidence for this.

Mood Swings or Moon Swings?

The most obvious way the Moon affects Earth is moonlight. A full Moon occurs around every 29.5 days, and a new Moon following 14.8 days after that.

There’s also the Moon’s gravitational pull, which creates the ocean tides that rise and fall every 12.4 hours. What if not only the oceans, but also humans were affected by the same pull?

Human cells may also be affected by the Moon in this way, given that life is thought to have begun in the oceans, and 75% of our bodies is water.

You’ve probably heard people complain about losing sleep when it’s a full Moon?

New research hints that the full Moon might in fact deprive some people of sleep, as sleep may vary during different lunar phases.

It’s also indicated that the Moon’s monthly and annual cycles are often similar in patterns to mood swings in bipolar patients!

Incredible, right? So too is evidence that lunar phases increase violence among psychiatric patients or prison inmates.

Moonstones for Sleep-Deprived Cancers

In astrology, the Moon is considered our soul and our entire inner emotional world. It represents our subconscious world and matters of the heart.

The only zodiac sign ruled by the Moon is the highly emotional and imaginative Cancer.

If you’re a Cancer having a hard time falling asleep during a full Moon, maybe you’re simply longing for your ruler planet?

One way to feel closer to it might be to wear some marvellous moonstone!

Moonstone is known as the gemstone for love, passion and fertility. It also usually brings great luck!
