Men & the Moon: How the Moon Affects Men's Sex Drive

We tend to think of the “cycle” as the domain of women and women-only. It’s often associated with the menstrual cycle, and the longer cycles of women’s lives (from puberty to the reproductive years to menopause). But men have cycles too -- they’re just a bit subtler.

Just as the Moon is associated with the 28-day menstrual cycle, it also has an impact on men’s cycles and even their sex drive. We all wax and wane with the Moon -- we just tend to blame our libido (or lack thereof) on other factors. Just as women can use the Moon to track their monthly bleeding and ovulation patterns, men can look to the new and full Moons to better understand why and when they feel like having more or less sex!

The new Moon is also called the “dark of the Moon” and it tends to be the time when we are more internally focused and less outwardly passionate. This the time for building new structures and forming ideas; it’s mentally stimulating and less body-focused. Male libido might be lower in the days that the Moon is waning, especially during the three-to-five day window before the monthly new Moon.

The full Moon is a whole different story. As the Moon waxes toward being full, pregnant (!) and visible in the sky, we all want to be seen and embraced. Passions rise -- as do men’s sex drives.

The lunar influence affects the male cycle in myriad ways, including the daily fluctuations of the Moon as it moves through each sign and makes aspects to specific planets. When the Moon is in Fire signs, men tend to be more animalistic. When La Luna is in Water signs, men want to connect and be nurtured by lovers, or to do some nurturing themselves. When the Moon is in Earth signs, it’s all about the five senses and the body; food will play a larger role in dating and sexual activities. Finally, when the Moon is in Air signs, the intellect rules; carnality will be on the back burner.

For men, the Moon is like another lover. It’s a guiding luminary in the cosmos, turning them on and off and on again, over and over and over. Men (and their partners) can use the Moon to improve sex and keep track of libido, instead of worrying that something’s wrong if they’re not always in the mood for love.
