Does a full moon have anything to do with your moods?

I was at work yesterday when my boss said something about the full moon affecting her mood. She said her husband seems to think that a full moon contributes to what kind of mood she is in. I know I was in a bad mood sorta yesterday but I dont know whether or not that had anything to do with it being a full moon.

It doesn't affect my mood but i do notice that the hair on my face grows long and my teeth stick out and i tend to howl a lot which upsets my dog. Apart from that, no problem.

As for me, it certainly does! :) Funny thing is that I'm in a very good mood, and my energy levels are soaring through the roof. Plus the is a rare Blue Moon this month, so I'm getting Double Goodies... I guess it all depends on how you want to feel, but the Moon does certainly have an effect on Earth and it's creatures, too... and that includes us. I can't wait for my walk home tonite! :)

It affects my day-night rhythm a bit, the fuller the moon is the later I tend to be able to get to sleep. But doesn't really affect my mood.

Hi there Tgreen, Im pretty sure the moon has some effect on the moods of people. I know a girl who always spins out and looses the plot when the moons full... But then again it maybe a sickness...

I've heard that it has that effect on people, but I haven't ever noticed it affecting me that way. I don't really know if it's true, but I have heard a lot of people say that the full moon does strange things to their mood sometimes. If it is true, then I'd like to know why it is that it does that!

I always get a little silly during a full moon.It is the best time to see comedies or have a party.

The full moon is actually tonight, the 2nd. But the build up to the full moon can also cause mood swings. Full moons are especially troublesome for older people, especially those with demenia or alzheimers. If you have ever working in a caregiving atmosphere, you would see some really crazy stuff during this time. I do believe that moon cycles affect our behavior and our moods. This is a good article which goes into it a little bit more. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1264/is_n4_v24/ai_14095618

Without any kind of doubt, the full moon afects me. It makes me into an irritable maniac actually. LOL! Every month. Forget PMS. Someone suggested to me that it is the pull of gravity and it messes with the fluid balances in your body, especially the brain. Sounds like a good theory. And as a nurse I know my elderly residents with dementia get extra aggitated.
