Supermoon Today

The Chinese called it the dragon moon; the Choctaws called it the panther moon; the Cherokee called it the planting moon; the Celts called it the bright moon.

The news networks are calling it a “supermoon.”

At 11.34pm today, the moon will be about 221,802 miles from Earth – about 15,300 miles closer than average.

Full Moons vary in size because of the oval shape of the Moon’s orbit. It is an ellipse with one side (perigee) about 50,000 km closer to Earth than the other (apogee). What I notice is difficulty sleeping and a tendency to want to shout a lot. Emotions surfacing…

If you feel as if something has been building inside, now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. But take a deep breath before letting it all out … full moons are infamous catalysts of extreme emotional reactions that we might at other times prefer to hold in.  Find the balance.
