Do you know when the next full moon is? I bet you don’t, unless of course, you are a werewolf too…

I find it sad that so few of us are aware of the moon and its monthly cycles. I always have trouble sleeping when there’s a full moon. Perhaps that’s because the moonlight keeps me awake, or perhaps it’s because my bodily rhythms are unsettled, or maybe there’s another reason…

No, I’m not a werewolf, I’m only joking. But, I am affected by the moon. I definitely become more clumsy when that nocturnal orb is full, as well as more emotional (some would say loony). I’m not unusual and I’m certainly not alone. We’re all affected by lunar cycles; it’s just that most of us fail to acknowledge it. Even those who are werewolves can apparently be oblivious to their monthly transformations. Click here to see if you might have lupine tendencies.

Anyway, Jack Nicholson makes a fine wolf howling at the moon in tonight’s film. And, there’s no need to have nightmares yet, because the next full moon isn’t going to be until Thursday 13th November.
