Life with the moon: astrology, physics, history, and anomalies
Nadia Smirnova-Mierau presents: Life with the moon: astrology, physics, history, and anomalies Nadia Smirnova-Mierau, a former nuclear physicist from Russia, has been practicing astrology for more than 30 years. A member of NCGR since 1996, Nadia is also a board member and a webmaster for NCGR’s Long Island Chapter (, and a public relations director for the NCGR Conference 2017 in Baltimore. Nadia specializes in explaining how astrology works in scientific terms within the astrological community. You can find more about Nadia on her website: The Moon, familiar because we see it almost every night, is nevertheless mysterious–especially when we ponder its origin and nature. Astrologically, we understand the Moon’s association with femininity, motherhood, the nurturing instinct, food, self-care, the body’s immune system, emotions, caring for others, our household and home, and much more. The Moon is responsible for our basic survival instincts. To survive, we must eat, protect our bodies with clothing, sleep, have a roof over our heads, engage with a partner in loving relationship and for procreation purposes, find meaningful work, and gain knowledge to maintain our good reputation in both our professional community and society at large. The Moon is all about the word lifestyle. All of this translates into our desire not only to survive, but to thrive, through the development of a more comfortable lifestyle. When we look at aspects of our lives for which other celestial bodies are responsible, we can trace the Moon’s involvement in each. Vedic astrology considers the Moon more important than the Sun in regards to brain function. The brain is 78% water—far more watery than the rest of the body. Essentially, our whole body is a tool for accomplishing tasks set by the brain, which is basically a water tank with a sophisticated structure designed to process wave energy information and translate it into hunger. Nadia Smirnova-Mierau will discuss what it is about the Moon that gives it such power over us, making us respond to its every move. What makes the Moon such a massive puppeteer and we humans–connected to it by seemingly invisible strings–powerless puppets? The lunar tidal effect on the oceans is well known, as is the fact that the gravitational pull of the constantly moving Moon creates gravity waves. These waves have traditional attributes, like wave length, frequency, phase, direction of propagation, wave energy, and amplitude. This hunger becomes synonymous with desire or the motivation to do something that results in satisfaction. Therefore, it’s the brain that’s most responsive to Moon-related gravity waves. Think about how thoughts and decisions depend upon your basic needs, worries, and desires. If we truly want to study the lunar effect on our lives from the standpoint of physics, we can study wave physics and watch how waves with certain frequencies interact with waves of other frequencies. We can also note what happens to an object exposed to constant bombardment by energy waves of various frequencies. Can we escape the Moon’s gravitational grip? We are so bound to the Sun-Moon cycle with our procreation routine, planting, and nature, what would happen to us if the Moon disappeared just as suddenly as it may have arrived? Come meet Nadia Smirnova-Mierau at the July 9 AOA meeting and hear her fascinating research on the physics of astrology. This is a special speaker meeting and there will be a $5 door fee for non-members. There is never a charge for members.
