Just a short post about the moon… I am lunar. That means that I have cycles which correspond to the phases of the moon, in particular, the full moon and the new moon (which are 14 days apart).
I have hormonal cycles in that I ovulate or menstruate in agreement with the moon phase.
I have moody cycles in that I feel deeply depressed or antsy or in need of a thrill in agreement with the moon phase.
Some months, I seek danger in agreement with a particular moon phase.
I have cycles of manic creativity which are in agreement with the moon.
The relationship to blogging is that when the moon is full, I sometimes write about feeling overwhelmed by pain and thinking about death – but when that moon phase is over, so is the emotion. Don’t get me wrong, the emotion is very real and completely dangerous if I feel suicidal – but it is fleeting. Whatever is happening in my brain during the full moon, it goes away as the moon goes away – at least for a month, anyway.
