We’ve all seen the Full Moon occasionally visible during the Summer daylight hours of the morning and evening. So does this trigger a Werewolf transformation? Especially considering that fact that Werewolves are beholden to metaphysical lunar energies rather than the light itself. We only see Werewolves at night but they can linger into the early embers of sunlight when within deeply wooded areas, a cave, or indoors. Their demonic DNA is repelled by sunlight. However, unlike vampires, they will not burst into flames and die. It simply makes them feel pain and blinds their eyes.
The triggered transformation can’t take place during the day even if they are in deep cover from sunlight. This is due to the holy sun having its own set of metaphysical energies. These enchanted energies override that of the Moon. Interestingly enough it is these very energies that are transmuted to unholy light by the Moon at night. That being said there are werewolves who have the power to transform at will. Often those trained in wolf packs. In such cases, they can transform during the daylight if they remain sufficiently shaded from the sun. In addition, some Native American tribes have embraced Lycanthropy and called upon their nature deities to dull the demonic DNA to some extent. So these type of werewolves may frolic freely in the holy sunlight for a time.
In human form, werewolves don’t normally care for direct sunlight but it doesn’t hinder their lives. Especially during the New Moon phase when they’re at the height of humanity. Since human werewolves are usually athletic they spend a lot of time outdoors and will have a healthy suntan. Still, they must use a great deal of sunscreen to prevent burns on unclothed areas of skin.
