The Moon and Stars and Everything

How do you confront a myth when there is correlational evidence for a thing? So, for example, I have worked in psych hospitals, and still work in community mental health, and when things get bad inevitably someone says, “It must be a full moon.”

Inevitably, I will say it’s not because of the moon. I will pull up my moon app and show them the phase. Sometimes, it’s actually a full moon. But that doesn’t mean what we think it means. Or does it?
