Almost all the women I know consider themselves to be ‘night creatures’ – bad tempered in the morning and generally alert and mentally active late at night. I know some men that are like this too, but most of my male family members find it much easier to get up early in the morning (whether they have to or not) and go to bed earlier at night.
I just naturally assume that this is something to do with women being governed by the Moon and Men being governed by the Sun, but do others disagree with my observances? Leave a comment or just vote in the poll.

Are you sure you're not a vampire? Laughing

I kind of like both ends of the day. I got into the habit of getting up early when I lived with a house full of people just so I could have some quiet space before I went to work. But I really like being up most of the night. It's the middle bits of the day that I have difficultly with. Not so much of a problem now that I work from home but I can never justify having a nap in the middle of the day no matter how tired I am. Would love to be able to survive on less sleep.

i'm female and have the moon conjunct my midheaven. am very much a morning creature. can't sleep in. can't stay in bed. am most energetic and happy in the morning. then, i'm an aries, maybe that plays a role?

often suffer from insomnia too and have many sleepless nights. but can't perform anything constructive after midnight. always happy when morning breaks.

I'm male. I stay up all hours of the night/morning. One week, I'll go to bed at 5 am every night. Next, bed at 10 pm, and up at 4am.

Three other male friends stay up until 3 am. A female friend goes to bed early (10.30 pm) and wakes up early (6 am) every day. Wink

I have always been a morning person, bright, breezy and full of vim and vigour...much to the chagrin of my husband. Even if I stay up late, rarely going to bed before midnight and I still wake early, 6 ish, ready to go. I thought it had something to do with conditioning from when the children were small....

I used to be more of a night person, but not any more. My wife gets up at ungodly early hours and usually in a good mood. I think it has as much to do with age as gender.

Her Moon is in Sagittarius; my Sun is in Pisces. Could that play a role?

The statistical results are not looking good. I'm amazed - there are women out there who get up bright and breezy in the morning???
Well I never...

I hate mornings Evil or Very Mad - I'm grumpy and sad and impossible to speak to - when I worked at a 'proper job' and was first married Bob used to shove a slice of toast into my hand and point me at the door and I would stomp my way to work muttering and spilling crumbs for the birds - If anyone spoke to me at work before noon I would say something sarcastic - consequently lost ALL proper jobs. Now I work for me and I get to stay in bed as long as I like and can be as sacastic to me as I like, and still nobody in their right mind speaks to me. I stay up at night until all hours -its nothing to be writing just as the Sun starts to rise, then skive off to bed. I was the same as a kid and don't expect to be a sun greeter in my dotage either. So that balances the stats. So there! it's 9 am and the bloody phone woke me - how inconsiderate! Next door wants me to walk their dog! Far out!

Did you vote?! I didn't see the vote go up!?!

I think women who are too dilatory to get up in the morning, just don't bother to vote, so it distorts my results.

I'm also starting to think this is maybe a Pisces/water type thing rather than a gender issue (strong Moon's and Cancer run in my female line). But then maybe my Taurus sun is slow to get started as well.

Speaking of getting up amd going to work in the morning, they used to say that was the best thing about being a hooker. When you wake up in the morning, you're already at the office.

Yes, but they wouldn't get a very good service from Linda in the morning, clearly. Can you imagine? Laughing

Yes - I voted - you are not imlying I should attempt to rig the vote? Moi? who is a good Pisces with a Virgo mother? I'd rather die on the cross.......

So then Linda, how did you always manage to be so cheerful and friendly to us all first thing in the morning at the recent conference you hosted? Did you send along one of your many subpersonalities while you were still tucked up in bed? And what about Bob? Does he have to put up with all the subpersonalities or does he send off a few of his own to handle it all? And does he have to make them all breakfast?

Ah - well I was bombed on painkillers, flying high on adrenelin ( which is great Aries Moon food )and not actually on the same earthly plane as the rest of the people. I was so determined to stay upright that I called on all my subpersonalities to support my effort. Plus I was pretty happy just to be there despite having to go to Ikea with my spendthrift daughter. Don;t tell any body - I have a subpersonality called " Gert" whose motto is "Keep smiling because if you stop your head will fall off" . Bob has lived with us for 44 years so I think he knows us all pretty wel. He is, because he's an Aquarius, rather overloaded with subbies himself - there's Mabel - his lint picking crone who hates bits on carpets and The Fat Controller who tells me what I think and when Molly and FC get together its really fun! Worst is Bruce the Bikie who gets off on revs.

None of us do breakfast except caffeine and other stimulants or croissants when on cruises. There's Little Bobby Pike though who gets upset when deprived of food so he gets eggs and bacon.

I got to plant those cucumbers but he keeps complaining he's too tired because he did 10 k with Ziggie and the dog is knackered. That'll teach em!
