To be “over the Moon”, “reach for the Moon”, “once in a blue Moon” are some of them. The word “lunatic” derives from Luna, the Moon. Many musicians and composers were inspired by the Moon. “Moonlight Sonata” from Beethoven, is one of many examples. Many myths have built up regarding the effects the Moon has on us.

New Moon and Full Moon seem to have an influence even if the researches don’t prove this. Menstruation seem to be closely connected to the Moon cycle.
