Thread Name: Howling at the Moon
Subject: RE: Howling At The Moon
I think it is an expression as 'mad for it'

When there is a full moon it's seen as having great effect on the mind - lots of theories - gravity/light cycles/cheese etc

Warewolfs change on full moons - lunatics comes form the word luna (moon)

Tides etc are influenced by the moon - animals supposedly react to the moon cycle

Hence if you were crazy about anything you would be howling at the moon

Just a guess - I'm a Cancerian and supposedly ruled by the moon - I made a full size model of the space shuttle from coke cans like weekend (so I ain't howling)- Saturday was full moon
