Thousands or maybe millions of years ago, it was noticed that as the Moon passes from one phase to another, it changes its influence on the events happening on Earth. The main reason is the varying distance between the Sun and the Moon. On the New Moon, the distance is minimal, and the Sun reduces the Moon’s power of influence over the Earth. On the Full Moon, the Moon is farthest from the solar influence, and its power is maximum. But did you know that the Moon influences your health depending on the phase it is in? Indeed. And here is how.
How the Moon Influences Your Health and Wellbeing
The complete cycle of a Moon begins with the New Moon and ends at the beginning of the next phase of the New Moon – 29-30 days. To make this complete rotation, the moon grows up to the Full Moon and then starts to wane down again, passing through the First Quarter Moon and the Third Quarter Moon. Each of these four Moon phases and the transitional two, the growth and waning (six in total), have a different influence on your health and well-being. Let’s start with the first, and get to each one by one, into more detail.

But from the 3rd day of the New Moon, the situation changes for the better. Now your body is ready to receive and store energies from the astral. These days, you are offered great possibilities. Even love dates are more full of momentum and passion on the night of the New Moon.
