our instinctive reaction is the inner world of the individual. The moon is the part of our soul, which reacts before we have time to think and realize.
Notes to the lunar calendar
 

Lunar year, lunar month, lunar day
Use the lunar calendar by people began much earlier than the solar calendar. Since ancient times, people lived exactly in accordance with the lunar rhythms, they understood that the effect of the Moon on the Earth is not weaker and perhaps even stronger than the sun. In ancient Rome, after each new moon priests publicly reported beginning of the month, called the date of the lunar phases. Now we live on the solar calendar, in the rhythms of the sun, but the accounting data of the lunar calendar in our daily life is still relevant if we want to feel good about themselves and succeed.
Lunar Year. Earth year lasts 365 days, but it is - the length of the solar year. It was during this time, the Earth makes a complete revolution around the sun. If we lived in the lunar calendar, the year would have lasted 354.36 Earth days - this is the length of the lunar year.
A Lunar Day is the period it takes for the Earth's Moon to complete one full rotation on its axis with respect to the Sun. Equivalently, it is the time it takes the Moon to make one complete orbit around the Earth and come back to the same phase. It is marked from a new moon to the next new moon. Lunar day is longer than a sunny day. Lunar day lasts 24 hours 48 minutes - that is how much time passes from one moon rise to the next. Lunar Days - those that are described in the astrological traditions of the World - are quite different from the familiar calendar days. The First Lunar Day always begins at the moment of the New Moon. Each subsequent day begins at the moment of moon rise in the given location. This means that Lunar Days are location-specific: the moment of moon rise depends on the longitude and latitude of the location and so even if two cities are located in the same time zone (say, New York and Boston), there will be a more or less substantial difference between their Lunar Days.
By the way, scientists who study biological rhythms, found that the human biological clock (property of the brain that allows us to accurately feel the time and wake up at the right time without an alarm clock) “wound up” about 24,5-25 hours, that is more in tune with the rhythms of the moon than the sun. Maybe that's why many people always suffer from a lack of time? It says about them: “He is 24 hours in a day is not enough!” Or maybe they do not have this particular missing lunar hours?
The lunar month is shorter than our usual solar month. In the lunar month of 29.53 Earth days.
Moonlit night (Lunar twenty-four hours) - this time, which runs from sunrise to moon rise. Except for the first lunar day: they start at the time of the new moon, and it does not coincide with the moment of sunrise. End first lunar day, at the time of the next new moon after the rising of the moon. Therefore, the first lunar day can be very short.
Sometimes, in the lunar month of 29 lunar days, and sometimes - 30. Thirties lunar day can also be very short: they do not end with the nearest rising moon, and at the time of the new moon, which can happen between two lunar sunrise. The duration of all other lunar day is about the same.

 
 
Why does the Moon have phases?

At the new Moon phase, the Moon is so close to the Sun in the sky that none of the side facing Earth is illuminated (position 1 in illustration). In other words, the Moon is between Earth and Sun. At first quarter, the half-lit Moon is highest in the sky at sunset, then sets about six hours later (3). At full Moon, the Moon is behind Earth in space with respect to the Sun. As the Sun sets, the Moon rises with the side that faces Earth fully exposed to sunlight (5).
The Moon has phases because it orbits Earth, which causes the portion we see illuminated to change. The Moon takes 27.3 days to orbit Earth, but the lunar phase cycle (from new Moon to new Moon) is 29.5 days. The Moon spends the extra 2.2 days “catching up” because Earth travels about 45 million miles around the Sun during the time the Moon completes one orbit around Earth.
At the new Moon phase, the Moon is so close to the Sun in the sky that none of the side facing Earth is illuminated (position 1 in illustration). In other words, the Moon is between Earth and Sun.

Why the moon looks like it is changing?
 

Moon and the psyche of man
The phases of the moon have a certain effect on the psychoemotional state of people, provoke outbreaks of aggression, somnambulism or insomnia. Scientists conducted a special study. The experts made appropriate conclusions on the results of a large research project, in which a huge amount of statistical data collected due to a large number of people was analyzed. It turned out that the Moon really affects human health and behavior, but it can cope with a mentally strong person. Ie, the Moon can only affect the behavior of the person predisposed to it. "We are talking about those who are pathologically susceptible to all kinds of suggestions, as well as in the whole emotionally unstable and infantile people. Here the moon actually acts very much even on them. On the rest - hardly ", - say the researchers.
Thus, if you feel that you are a mentally stable person, then you can not be afraid of the moon - it is not able to somehow affect your state of health.

(number of lunar day)

Features account lunar days

Looking at the moon, you will notice that the sight of her every day is changing - from a small crescent to the full disk. On the day of the new moon (the day before the new moon) the moon in the sky is not visible. It can be seen only by the middle or end of the next day. What is not generally representing a digit zero. So, take lunar days most naturally with zero: 0, 1, 2, 3 ...
(zero corresponds to the new moon day of the moon.) But lunar days thus counted are not always. The fact that zero invented much later lunar calendar, and ancient calendars account lunar days were with units 1, 2, 3, 4 ... (in some calendars, the system still preserved). It's the same thing to start with unit scale ruler - this line will always show more than 1 cm! Of course, it is very inconvenient. But in those early years there was no other choice - because zero was not yet invented. Later this difficulty was able to bypass the Tibetan lunar calendar: the day of the new moon it was seen as the 30th lunar day, the final month.
