When the sky in the region of the Lower Rhine is clear and cloudless, you can see the earth’s satellite particularly well in the starry sky. The Earth’s moon is the brightest celestial body from the earth and sometimes shines extremely brightly. Then the moon is very close to the earth on its orbit. So close that it seems to be grasping.
The moon needs an average of 28 days to orbit the earth, while it rotates around its own axis, but you can always see the same side of the moon. But we see the moon in different phases.
We can see the full moon from Earth when the moon is on the opposite side of the sun. New moon that means the moon is on the sunny side and cannot be seen from the earth. The moon then appears in different phases on its orbit. Half moon and crescent moon. But the back of the moon can never be seen from Earth.
The moon not only circles the earth, but the earth & moon circle the sun once in the course of a year. Also, because the moon’s orbit is elliptical, the moon’s distance from earth varies and the moon sometimes appears as a super full moon.
The moon not only influences ebb and flow on earth, but is also of particular importance from an astrological point of view. The position of the moon at the time of a person’s birth should be relevant for the feelings and emotions.
Since the moon also moves through the zodiac signs on its orbit, the influence of the moon also changes on the respective zodiac sign. The so-called moon sign expresses the position of the moon at the time of birth. Among other things, the moon sign should provide information about the personality of each individual.
The moon has and always had something mythical. In the past, sacrificial rituals were performed during the full moon. And even today, many people still use the lunar horoscope to help them make important decisions.
There are also tips on which position of the moon should be planted or harvested. Some people have their hair cut when the moon is full, as this is said to be particularly good. Still others plan their dates with a full moon or a new moon. Eating habits are also aligned with the moon.
