The Full Moon Steals Up to 50 Minutes of Sleep

Full Moon

The full moon phase, which begins on the 12th of July this month, is a cause for people sleeping between 25 and 50 minutes less. This was revealed in a Swedish study, quoted in the Daily Mail.

The study was carried out by a team of scientists in Gothenburg University. In the experiments, Michael Smith and his colleagues tested the sleep of 47 people.

For the tests, the volunteers were left to sleep in darkened rooms and their reactions were under observation for a period of 24 hours.


At the end of the studies, it was determined that a full moon reduced the amount of sleep in women by 25 minutes and in men - by up to 50 minutes. It was in that exact moon phase that the volunteers displayed a higher sensitivity to sounds and changes in the environment in which they were sleeping.

Michael Smith, who was the head of the study, explained the result due to the biological clock, which we have inherited from our cavemen ancestors. He pointed out that our ancestors were most alert during the full moon, believing that the threat of enemies grew during that phase.

The full moon this Saturday enters into the zodiac sign of Capricorn, which will benefit any actions related to career and order.

The full moon in Capricorn predisposes us to setting goals that we are to reach in time. This phase of the moon guarantees positive results from your wishes this day.

This Saturday you need to be more self-restrained, active and disciplined.


To achieve your goals for the day, spare yourself the expression of your feelings using words and instead show them through actions.

You need to remain stable, productive and organized throughout the day. Rely mainly on yourself, avoid emotional experiences.

The things that are at top of the list are any topics related to professional realization and family traditions, prosperity, rise and end.

The full moon is a suitable time for cleansing the body of toxins.

The phase of the full moon this Saturday is 1 of the 3 Supermoons expected this year. Then, the moon will be as close to Earth in its orbit as possible and if there aren't too many clouds, we may become witnesses to a unique scene in the sky.
