Children of the full moon

We would like to take a quick look at people who were born at the full moon. As to this, we remind you, contrary to widely spread opinion, that there are not more children being born at the full moon than at any other point in time during the lunar phases. Extensive studies over many decades have arrived at this result. Even though, many people may perceive or experience this differently – the numbers are unmistakably clear. We have already written an article about this »More births at full moon?«. So there are as many full moon children as there are new moon children etc.

If one assumes a world population of about 7 billion people and  an average of 12 full moons per year, it results in 3.3 % (12 divided by 365) and hence a whopping 230 million people who were born at the full moon. One could now incorporate the years with 13 full moons into the calculation, just like the leap years – but we don’t want to become too mathematical at this point.

It is by the very nature of things that amongst those full moon children, some have become very famous. Quite interesting is the birth of musicians and hereby the concentration of three big names on three different full moons in the year of 1958:

• 10th January 1944 – Frank Sinatra jr. (son of Frank Sinatra)
• 5th March 1958 – Andy Gibb (Bee Gees)
• 30th July 1958 – Kate Bush
• 29th August 1958 – Michael Jackson
• 10th March 1963 – Neneh Cherry
• 26th May 1964 – Lenny Kravitz

Hmmm … there are a few names in all other professions – maybe Demi Moore (11th November 1962) and Catherine Zeta-Jones (25th September 1969) are still worth mentioning – but certainly not a huge accumulation. The reason might be that there are actually only 3.3 % full moon children in the respective professions.

Next to the birth at the full moon, there is still another aspect: every person celebrates their birthday several times at the full moon! This takes place approximately every 19 years – mind you, only if you go by the commonly known (sun-) calendar. If you calculate your birthday by the moon calendar, just like it is the case in Islam, for example, then the full moon shines each birthday for all people who were born at the full moon.

Take a look at our 150 years full moon calendar, whether you were born at the full moon. If so, we congratulate you with moon light!

    Swim in the ocean during a full moon. If you’re lucky you can swim with a pod of wild dolphins

    • Jörg & Pat | 19th October 2015

      It’s all depending on your time zone. In Europe, Asia and Australia the full moon has been on 1st November 2001, in America it was the 31st October 2001.

      In 2020 the full moon will be on 31st October all over the world ;-)

      All the best for you!

    I got my spiritual name this year in India: Purnima which means full moon. The Babaji who gave me the name said he can see a bright light / a full moon light around me and gave me the name. He asked me if I were born on a full moon night. I said I do not know. Later I checked at the internet and tada: 4. November 1979, my birthday was a full moon night :)

    • Rejin | 14th September 2014

      Full moon is called Purnima and new moon is called Amvasya in India. Full moon is considered auspicious when good spirits are out in full force. Amvasya is considered inauspicious when evil spirits are at strongest. In India, during Amavasya, they lit lamps and candles and make faces, dolls and stuff like that especially in the old days as sign of warding off the evil :-)

      All that matters is each day that you wake up too! Think about being born on a full moon as having more spiritual support in your daily life. Be greatful for everything you have and know you could accomplish anything you focus on and think about all the time. Peace out and stay positive
