1. The New Moon encourages you to become more seductive:

This phase represents the time for initiatives to be taken and embarked on! The New Moon is the best period for furthering projects with your partner, so why not try suggesting new and sexy experiences? In any case, don't hold back when it comes to surprising your partner on the evening of the New Moon, and if things have hit a bit of a blip, try to rekindle the flame.

2. The first quarter encourages sexual communication with your partner:

If you’re having problems in your relationship, despite the efforts that you made during the New Moon, this is the time to set things straight between you and your partner.

3. Full Moon and sex: Your orgasms will be heavenly:

Sex on a Full Moon is the ideal time to reach orgasmic levels with your partner! During this phase, you feel more energetic, so you’ll need less sleep, and sex is the best way to channel your energy. All of your senses are stimulated by the Full Moon, in short, your sensations are multiplied by 10, and it’s a one-way trip to heaven, so make sure you get on board! Discover which zodiac signs are most sexually compatible.

Some suggest that the Full Moon also plays a role in hormones. Its electromagnetic radiation would indeed influence our hypothalamus, the gland that orchestrates the secretion of hormones. By contributing to increasing the production of hormones, and thus of testosterone, which controls sexual desire, the Moon would thus have a power on the libido.

Now, because the general energy is at its peak, the Full Moon is associated with personal reflection and assessment. This time of year is more conducive to introspection and tends to make humans more emotional and tense. However, some people are able to release these tensions by making love. Likewise, because the full moon is associated with greater aggression. We notice that human beings tend to be more impulsive and reactive during this time of the month. Some people might therefore feel like having adventures and be tempted by the unknown. Some dating sites say they have noticed an increase in registrations during the nights of the full moon.

Sex

If you’re single, it’s time to bring this to an end and start enjoying great sex! 

4. The last quarter will decrease your libido:

Often during this last phase, you’ll have less of a desire to be intimate, and you’ll withdraw yourself as if you’re going to take a nap until the next New Moon. Furthermore, the craziness from the Full Moon has probably made you tired. If you’re single, this isn't the time to look for a relationship, so be sure to quietly stay in your corner because the person you’re interested in will push you away.

Does a Full Moon make you hornier?

The Moon is known for playing on our emotions and feelings, especially when it is full. Does your libido heat up when the Moon is full? Do you look at your boyfriend/girlfriend differently during certain times of the month? Well, it’s no wonder because this star doesn't just affect the tides, it also has an impact on our sexual appetite. Indeed, two stars have a great influence on our sex life, and they are Venus and the Moon. Venus because it awakens our feelings of love and defines our way of behaving with our half. The Moon, because it plays on our emotions and our mood. Therefore, the Full Moon is reputed to stimulate our senses to their maximum and increase our feelings tenfold... Especially what concerns sex, that’s right, we definitely become hornier when it is full.

How does a Full Moon affect females?

Many women report that their menstrual cycle is synchronized with the Moon. Others complain of more painful periods at the time of the Full Moon. If no correlation between lunar cycles and menstrual cycles could be scientifically demonstrated, in fact, the menstrual cycle of the woman corresponds to a lunar month. The irregularity of the cycle comes from the lifestyle of each woman (children, work, stress, fatigue). It can also be disrupted by the climate and the seasons. Originally, women's periods were tuned to the Moon, but now that there are artificial lights everywhere, this is less noticeable.

What does a New Moon mean sexually?

In terms of sexual meaning, the New Moon is often associated with new beginnings, heightened desires, and a sense of exploration. It symbolizes a fresh start and the potential for initiating new intimate connections or deepening existing ones. It can be a time of increased passion and spontaneity, as well as a period for setting intentions and exploring new aspects of one's sexuality. The energy of the New Moon encourages individuals to be open to new experiences, express their desires, and embrace their sensuality. It is an opportunity to tap into one's inner desires and engage in intimate connections with a sense of curiosity and excitement. Ultimately, the sexual meaning of the New Moon can vary depending on personal beliefs, experiences, and individual interpretations of lunar energy.

Susan Taylor’s insights: Embrace the elements

When a full moon shines in the sky, magic is in the air. The energy is palpable. To make the most of this mystical experience, incorporate the four elements - fire, earth, water, and air - into your next romp. Make love by a fire, in the moonlight, or on the grass, and you'll lay the foundation for powerful sexual magic.
