Saturday, August 29th will be the first of three Super Full Moons in 2015, which means this Pisces Super Full Moon (wow, say that three times fast!) will have a bit of extra emotional kick.
So, what exactly is a Super Moon? I went to the EarthSky website, and found this tidbit of info –
What is a supermoon? It’s a new or full moon closely coinciding with perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth in its orbit. The name supermoon was coined by an astrologer, Richard Nolle, over 30 years ago. It was popularized and came to be an accepted term only in the past few years. Are supermoons hype? In our opinion … gosh, no, just modern folklore. They’ve entered the popular culture (check out Sophie Hunger’s music video in this post, for example). And they can cause real physical effects, such as larger-than-usual tides. According to the definition of supermoon coined by Nolle, the year 2015 has a total of six supermoons. The new moons of January, February and March have passed. Still to come are the full moons of August, September and October.
Then there’s this, from The Elephant Journal –
Super moons are more potent than average full moons because of the close proximity to earth and this one will have us feeling our realizations in an almost cathartic and heavily climactic way. If it feels like there is a lot at stake right now in terms of emotional breakthroughs and developments—it’s because there is.
Finally, my contribution to the upcoming Pisces Super Full Moon is the following graphic (made with a picture I took of the Blue Moon this past July) –
Bright Super Full Moon Blessings to everyone this Saturday!
