Moon
« on: May 20, 2014, 01:47:10 PM »
I got home just now and as I was dehydrating myself with a much needed glass of water, I heard an interesting conversation in the likes of the moon, eclipses, and pregnancy.

My next door neighbor was over to use our fax and she is "spiritual" like my mom is. They were talking about something having to do with working with science in conjunction with spiritual work/healing because it works better. (where I thought "no shit.. it's because science makes everything work better") but I learned a bit of a fun fact... or maybe I should say trivia...

Did you know that if you are pregnant during an eclipse, you aren't supposed to use scissors or open doors or anything like that because if you do, the power of the moon will cause a defect in your baby? It's true! It's been proven!!! :anal:

Obviously if any defect happens to your baby and you opened a door during an eclipse it has nothing to do with the eclipse, but after my neighbor started listing all these "examples" (and I use that word loosely) my mom was thinking it made total sense. She was really eating it up.... for instance my neighbor said that she cried a lot during pregnancy during an eclipse when she was pregnant with her youngest son, and she ties that to her son's autism...

...and the moon shall have dominion over scissors and doors*

*but only during pregnancy.

I hate to bring this up,  but WTF? :lol:
I suspect it's related to women eating apples and spreading sin. :eek:

I actually think it has to do with islam... My neighbors are muslim.
She was also telling my mom that she shouldn't eat fish in months that have an "r" in the name... Shellfish apparently is ok, but regular fish is not.

I have a feeling she's not going to buy fish in those months now too. She's relating my dads food poisoning from fish he got at a diner in April to the fact that April has an "r" in it....

I had a new age neighbor tell me that I was spiritually connected to the full moon and that I needed to memorize all the full moons because that was when I was at my best...all I did to prompt that was say that the moon looked really pretty that night.

Yeah, I know about them special lunars. I accidentally got mooned by a cheerleader once. Unfortunately, pursuing a relationship soon proved to be fruitless.
