I got up before daybreak. Inside my white-walled garden, it appeared to be fully lit.
I now understand why. Thank you for the interesting facts about our full moon. A charge nurse at a convelescent home said there is emotional upheaval not only at Full Moon but at New Moon also I have noticed for yrs that people get very short tempered around a full moon, and I notice that even within myself. You especially see it in driving. What I would like to know is what is going on since last Saturday, Feb.
Four of my close friends seemed to get really quiet due to heightened stress, and I and many others have been experiencing anxiety like feelings since then. People were even posting about it on Facebook! I am a Scorpio, and our intuition and ability to "feel" other people's feelings is extremely strong, so I'm sure beyond a shadow of a doubt that is contributing to my recent level of emotional and physical intensity.
I would just like to know why it is all so intense right now, beyond what I've experienced in the past?
Is something going on that anyone knows of right now that would affect this like a full moon does at a lower intensity? Thank you.

My wife has Alzheimer's and I noticed she was more confused this Sunday, and that control of my temper almost got me to the moon, I got so upset that I had a very hard time sleeping well that night I had a lot of acid intergestion, being a caregiver is tough enough I don't need the moon adding to it. Wow, what can I say? I love the moon. I hate cloudy nights when you cannot see the moon, ya know? Just want to let you know that your almanac has been in my family for years.

She would breed her pigs, to put eggs in her incubator, go fishing, and so many other things.
I had a brother who used it to set crops, set eggs, to fish, and so on. I still enjoy it to this day. Thank you for so many years of enjoyment. I know you weren't around when I was born tho. Hi, Jan, This made our day! We always enjoy hearing from Almanac fans who represent generations of readership! Same here Jan im not as elder as you, but everything we did around our farm was based on the moon. This knowledge led me to learn how to compile birth natal charts. Our lives are amazing when viewed through astrology.
My husband is planning to have knee replacement surgery in the near future.
I would like to know what days are the best to have surgery. My Mother never did anything without consulting the Almanac first! She is now 94 and in the nursing home, so I can't ask her.
Please help me out! I am an RN who takes care of orthopedic patients every work day. My suggestion is to have surgery early in the week Monday or Tues , if possible.
