Saturday night will be a Super Moon – the closest the moon has been to the earth since 1992. Superstition says it heralds disaster – but the moon has always played a role in fertility.
Just like the moon affects the oceans and rivers in the form of tides – it can also affect anything that has a water content – like our bodies! If you ever want your hair to grow faster – trim it in the 3 days leading up to the full moon. The reverse applies as well – I once had a bad hair cut the day after the full moon and my hair grew so sloooowly. It can get a bit more complex – with different signs of the moon – but that’s the general gist.
Anyways – I ramble – back to the moon!
Last month, a group of us on a TTC thread in the lovely Simple Savings forum decided to support a fellow member whose fertile period fell on the full moon by doing a nudie run.
Standing around in our backyards NAKED. Starkers. Sans garments.
Crazy you might say – but as many of you know, after long term TTC – you’re willing to give anything a go.
Now – there were no positive results – no one managed to get the big BFP that cycle – but it was a fantastically fun thing to do. It felt amazingly free and wonderful.
Don’t worry – I’m not about to go join a nudist colony – but it was exhilarating!! (I’ve never been much of a public exhibitionist)
So – this Saturday we have another full moon – and I send a request out to the blogsphere to invite women everywhere to get naked in your back yards (or front yards if you don’t have neighbours!) and soak up some moon rays 🙂
