Our area has been under siege of nature with rain and gloomy days for weeks. I’ve noted that everyone seems so sleepy or tire. People are grumpy and less inclined to be cheerful. Now to top it off we’re in the cycle of a full moon.
I find during full moon cycles I tend to get inordinately sleepy and groggy for at least 3 days before until 3 days after a full moon. You Divas will know…that sleepy the first 3 months of pregnancy or the sleepy when monthly cycles hit like Thor’s hammer. Anyway I was wondering if it was just me.
I have have actually noted the calendar over the years to plot the above mentioned research! Check it out. It may explain a lot and give you relief that you do not have recurring Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The full moon for May 2016 is the 21st. Below I’ve copied the 2016 cycles from space.com so you can do your own research…..
Full moons in 2016
Many cultures have given distinct names to each recurring full moon. The names were applied to the entire month in which each occurred. The Farmer’s Almanac lists several names, and explains that there were some variations in the moon names, but in general, the same ones were used among the Algonquin tribes from New England on west to Lake Superior. European settlers followed their own customs and created some of their own names.
