Blame it on the Moon

The last couple of days, I’ve been bonkers. Legit, loco.

Irrational, irritable, overly feisty. I swear, my hair has gotten more wild & skin shriveled - I am a werewolf. My brain is on overdrive, and I tend to feel overwhelmed and exhausted easily.

I blame it on the moon. The full moon is upon us, as it is every 30 days, and yes, it has the same old effect. That big light in the sky moves the water inside my body and shows the side of myself I try to keep at bay 29 other days of the month.

It comes twelve times a year, yet I never seem to remember that when I start screaming about my messy house, or sobbing on the ground thinking that my whole life is over unless I can single handedly save all the puppies of the world. I know I’m not alone in this. You have felt your crazy come out—don’t kid yourself.

But, all is not lost. Blame it on the moon. Scream into a pillow, throw something—preferably not fragile—and, in the heat of that moment PAUSE. Remember, these feelings of crazy are not entirely you, but a you influenced by the energies and tides of the world that are meant to reignite another cycle. Although an important vibe, letting yourself go completely to a point of darkness and insanity isn’t worth the energy to break some of your favorite things or ruin your day every.single.month.

Take a moment to breathe, and look deep inside yourself to remember this is just a cycle and you will get through—even if your house is messy or you have a good cry.
