Ever wondered what psychological effects lunar phases have on human behaviour? In a holistic point of view, I certainly have! While the full moon significantly influences the movements of tides on the planet's oceans, what is to be said of the internal human tides? After all, are we not made up of water by 60%? Even if we disregard this fact, it would be hard to say that the amount of daylight that we see everyday does not impact out daily activities, let alone our mood. Why, one of the most legendary rock albums was named after the dark side of the moon, which by the way, just celebrated 45 years according to this article.

Myself? I was born in the summer so I am creature of the sun. Funnily though, my nonna always nicknamed me "lunella", which means little moon. The sight of the moon has since then taken on a special meaning to me. That being said, the Leo in me struggles with the winter months as I slowly turn into a pale ghost copy of myself and wonder why it is so difficult to get up in the morning. At first, we romanticize with fall, getting seduced by all that cocooning spirit and pumpkin spice lattes, making it easier to accept shorter and colder days. After Christmas though, the real challenge starts. And so here we are, middle of March with still no sign of springtime in the city, as usual. Clearly I am not the only one on this planet being affected by sunlight, right? According to all the Instagram posts I see about Montreal snow and weather: right.

Want to encourage local business? Know that Moonglow saw its first days in 2003, with Canadian artist Luc Rouleau and that all products are hand-finished here in Canada. Moonglow has since added many other new products to their line such as the Byron bracelet, meteor necklace in rose gold, my two personal favorite purchases, and many other styles. There are still the classics from the very beginning like the birthstone necklace in pewter which I also received as a gift from my mother in law many moons ago ;)
For the Byron bracelet, I chose the June 20th 2015 moon to celebrate my wedding anniversary. For the rose gold necklace, I chose my birthday moon! In doing so, I found out I was born in the waning crescent and here is what Moonglow states about that lunar period:
