Full Worm Moon - 25th March 2024

As the Full Worm Moon graces the night sky, its mystical aura brings with it a surge of energy that can deeply impact both humans and our beloved pets. This celestial event, named after the earthworms that emerge in the springtime thaw, symbolises renewal, growth, and transformation. For us, the Full Worm Moon signifies a time to shed the old and embrace the new, to set intentions for the coming season, and to harness the powerful energies for personal growth and development.

Our pets, sensitive and intuitive beings that they are, can also be influenced by the energies of the Full Worm Moon. Just like us, they may exhibit changes in behaviour, mood, and energy levels during this time. It's important to be mindful of their needs and emotions, offering them extra love, attention, and comfort as they navigate through these energetic shifts. Taking the time to connect with our furry friends, engage in calming activities, and create a harmonious environment can help them feel supported and balanced during this period of celestial intensity.

The circadian rhythm is a natural process that regulates the bodies sleep-wake cycles. This affect most living things, including animals, plants, and microbes. This rhythmic cycle is controlled by the body's internal clock, known as the suprachiasmatic nucleus, located in the brain. The circadian rhythm helps to align our biological processes with the 24-hour day-night cycle of the Earth. It plays a crucial role in not only sleep patterns but also in regulating hormone levels, body temperature, and metabolism. Disruptions to the circadian rhythm can have various negative impacts on health, such as sleep disorders, mood disturbances, and even certain medical conditions. Therefore, maintaining a consistent sleep schedule, exposure to natural light during the day, and avoiding electronics before bedtime are some ways to support a healthy circadian rhythm. By understanding and respecting this natural process, we can optimise our well-being and overall quality of life.

If we usually have a good balance of the hormones serotonin (awake) and melatonin (sleep), throughout the month, you maybe surprised to learnthe body will produce more serotonin around a full moon. This means you are naturally more awake (this could explain why you don't sleep well over the full moon). Serotonin is a feel-good neurotransmitter, and whilst this is a feel good factor for us, its also a feel good factor for our worms (or potential worm burden) as they have receptors for serotonin to, so this helps them to be more active. So the more serotonin, the more active the worms are.

Interestingly during a full moon, worms (parasites) are more active and can detach, moving around the body. Once they are detached, they become easier to expel.Introducing whole foods over a full moon, will mean the expulsion of any worms shouldn’t affect the flora of the animal's gut, and they won't lose weight or condition; as it’s a gentle cleanse.For a comprehensive parasitic cleanse and protection against biting insects, our canine flea and tick blend offers a natural solution. By incorporating this blend into your pet's routine, you can help safeguard them against parasites while promoting their overall well-being.

So, as we gaze up at the luminous Full Worm Moon and feel its energies wash over us, let us remember to extend that same awareness and care to our pets. Embrace this time of growth and transformation, and allow the magic of the moon to guide us on our journey towards greater understanding, connection, and love for ourselves and our animal companions.
