Here Are 5 Ways a Full Moon Can Affect Your Mood
5. It can illuminate the path.
If you’re a zodiac sign that enjoys being in the spotlight, the energy of the full moon can help with your energy levels, giving you a better sense of where you should go next, and what your priorities will be.
If you’re a sign that shuns the spotlight, it’s best to hunker down until the darkness returns.
4. It tugs on our bodies.
The moon affects the tides, and L.A.-based astrologer Athena Perrakis, PhD, says that means the water in our bodies hears the call, too.
“The full moon affects our bodies and it affects the oceans.
Since our bodies are made up, proportionally, of so much water, it’s easy to understand how the moon would pull us and sway us just like the ocean.”
3. It shines a light on our emotions.
We’re all light and dark, negative and positive, and according to Dr. Perrakis, the full moon shines a light on all of them.
“In the literal sense, what the full moon does is expand and it magnifies everything.”
2. And intensifies them, too.
How you feel during the full moon can depend on your state of mind as it comes about, since it magnifies natural characteristics.
“If you’re empathetic and you don’t shield your energy well, you could end up feeling really drained.”
1. It can energize creatives.
For many, the full moon will lend increased energy. Your sun sign will depend on how you handle and apply it, but in general, those who are passionate and creative should fare well, says Dr. Perrakis.
“Leo loves the full moon because Leo is all about passion and creativity and enthusiasm.
Leo is constantly craving access to bigger energy, so at the full moon you’re going to see Leos being extremely outgoing, extremely enthusiastic, and possibly creating something new.”
If you’re a Virgo, she says you “love to get organized and they love to prioritize and they find that extra energy helps them get more work done.”
