Full Moon Ceremony. The time interval between similar lunar phases—the synodic month—is on average about 29.53 days, just about once monthly. "Full Moons are traditionally associated with temporal insomnia, insanity (hence the terms lunacy and lunatic) and various "magical phenomena" such as lycanthropy. Psychologists, however, have found that there is no strong evidence for effects on human behavior around the time of a full moon.They find that studies are generally not consistent, with some showing a positive effect and others showing a negative effect."
