The importance of moon phases

Surely you are familiar with the fact that the different phases of the moon are important to what happens here on Mother Earth? (If nothing else, certainly you know that warewolves become active when it is full moon? 😉
Seriously; in Sweden we have an old, widespread book called Bondepraktikan, that deals with folkloristic believes and where one can get good advice on the subject when to seed and when to harvest according to the movements of the moon and so forth. The English word “lunatic” has an obvious connection with the Latin name for the moon- Luna etc etc
I have personally made some observations when the moon is shifting its phases:

  1. I always get more tired and have a hard time to wake up early at these occasions
  2. The weather seems to change and the new type of weather remains until next change of moon phase

The most general advice about the moon phases is this:

  1. If you want your hair/nails to grow faster; cut them right before a full moon!
  2. If you want your hair/nails to grow more slowly; cut them right before a new moon!
  3. (That is now, by the way)

  4. These rules goes for all organic, growing life

If you use Google as your starting page, you have certain possibilities to customise it. I have this practical moon phase indicator on mine:
Månfasindikator från Google
(The picture abov was inserted in the Swedish version of my blog some days ago. The first real spring days made their entrance then. The moon shifted phase on March 11, and that is when we had our first notion of spring).
Now they arw claiming on Text-TV that winter is making a comeback during this weekend. OK; this is what the moon looks like right now:current-moon-phase.jpg

As you can see, new moon will soon occur, and that will (according to this theory) coincide with the change in the weather. So, unfortunately they may be right about the comeback of winter. I hope it will not be for long, though!
