The moon has inspired many lore, beliefs and stories through the years. Forancient peoples, before there were clocks and calendars, the moon has served as atime-teller, signaling the seasons and the turns of the tide. Hunting for food andplanting were synchronized with the moon’s phases. Even feasts and rituals weretimed with the moon. It was a mystery, a source of magic, and in some cultures,even a god or a goddess.In the modern world, the moon has become a physical place where mancould take steps on and send many space shuttles to. While there are still quite afew mysteries to be solved about the moon, many others have been brought tolight by science. Today when people look up at the night sky, it makes one wonder,what exactly does one see? Do people see a lump of rock or the hidden face of adeity?The phases of the moon come with its own sets of stories and legends. Thekey phases are new moon, first quarter, full moon and last quarter.

The full moon hasreceived so much attention through time and has become an object of myth andsuperstition in its own right.Each full moon has actually been given names, with meanings that are oftenrooted in traditional agricultural practices. The most commonly heard is probablythe Harvest Moon that happens in either September or October. It is named suchbecause it is the time when it is biggest and brightest. It is so bright that farmerscan continue to harvest in their fields even during nighttime.On the other hand, the full moon has also been connected to strange behaviorto this day. Nurses have been said to claim that during the full moon, more peopleare brought into hospitals for accidents or injuries caused by unusual activities.Even some policemen have made the association of increased violence oraggression during the full moon.However, regardless of how superstitious or scientific one approaches themoon, it cannot be denied that the moon will remain to be a fascinating object of wonder and study. Call it magic or the magnet of gravity -- the pull of the moon onpeople’s imaginations will remain as strong as its pull on the tides of the seas.
