Moon & Beach

I have previously posted before about Full Moons but Gina was kind enough to bring up a comment of mine on her earlier post today, so I thought I’d touch on it for new readers.

Full moons are known for contributing to everything from insomnia, sleep disturbances, irritability, moodiness, heated interpersonal exchanges, to computers and tech-related things being glitchy and malfunctioning. 

More info here

During a Full Moon, the world is filled with excess prana, or life force energy. Technological or mechanical glitches are notorious during Full Moons.   Computer problems, car problems, appliances breaking.

For example, during this month’s full moon my ice maker in my fridge broke and the next month during a full moon my microwave broke.

Those who are traditional yogis don’t tend to practice during full moons because although we feel we “have tons of energy” to practice, it’s not a calm and centered energy.  It’s more of a manic, chaotic energy and we are prone to emotional upset like crying or feeling very uncerented if we practice when the moon is full.

Conversely, during new moons where there is excess apana (downward pulling energy) we don’t typical practice because we are much more heavy-filling, sluggish, tired, and just don’t have the uplifting energy to sustain a nice practice.

But full moons are not all about glitches and insomnia and excess energy.  Many people believe that Full Moons are a time of good luck and good fortune.

Good luck like the sun coming out a bit and being able to hit up the beach!

It’s been a little overcast but nothing like all the rain we had the last time we were here!

We used to go out on sunset sails and dive trips on those boats.  Thinking about doing it again, actually!

From my last post about Redecorating my House here in Aruba, thanks for the kind words on my el cheapo redecorating efforts!  The room feels so much bigger, and better, now that I made over the space and got a great deal on that new sofa.

Thanks for filling me in on how you like to redecorate and personalize your own spaces.


1. Have you noticed any full moon effects this month?

I have!  Skylar has been a little moody the past few days.  I find that kids are generally more in touch with natural world phenomenon than adults so not surprising there have been a few ahem moments.

And I have been staying up super late (common for me) but have had excess energy for my workouts but also feel a bit like my head is spinning and not totally a grounded energy.

Part of that could be the long journey and travel here to Aruba, but also, partially the full moon effects are at play, too I’d say.

2. When was the last time you were at the beach?

Tell me about it!

Have a great evening, everyone!

P.S. Thanks for all the entries on my $50 Ecolissa GiveawayKeep ’em coming!

  9. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. cheers

  10. Together with every little thing that seems to be building within this subject matter, many of your points of view happen to be very exciting. Nevertheless, I am sorry, because I do not subscribe to your whole idea, all be it radical none the less. It seems to me that your opinions are actually not completely rationalized and in actuality you are yourself not really wholly convinced of the assertion. In any event I did enjoy looking at it.

  11. I do like the manner in which you have presented this specific issue plus it really does present me a lot of fodder for thought. However, through just what I have observed, I simply wish when other feedback stack on that men and women continue to be on issue and don’t embark upon a soap box involving the news of the day. Yet, thank you for this superb point and though I do not really agree with this in totality, I regard the perspective.

  13. Glad the weather is more agreeable for you this trip.
    I love sunset cruises, but haven’t tried the diving. Might do that on our next trip.

    Full moon effects: full moon combined with PMS has made things interesting this week

    Last time I was at the beach: March 26th 11am. Getting in a last beach walk & swim before packing up and leaving Barbados. Great memories.

  14. I live only a couple of hours from the Oregon coast, so I go two-four times a year. Although, it’s been awhile!

    I have never really thought about the moon cycle before, it’s actually really interesting. I had no idea!

  15. As a middle school teacher, I can tell when there is a full moon! Our kids go crazy! They just do the silliest things. Our principal has also told us there are more office referrals during full moons and when the air pressure changes.
