Super Moons & Micro Moons – 2017

super-moon-micro-moon

The Moon orbits Earth in an elliptical orbit (not a perfect circle), hence the distance of the Moon from the Earth varies throughout the year… from between 356,500 km (221,500 mi) at the Perigee and 406,700 km (252,700 mi) at the Apogee.

When a Full Moon or New Moon coincides with being Perigee (closest to Earth), it is deemed a SUPERMOON.  Conversely, when a Full Moon or New Moon coincides with being Apogee (furthest from Earth), it is deemed a MICROMOON

SUPER MOONS – Definition

The term ‘SuperMoon’ was coined by Richard Nolle in 1979 – as follows:

“…a new or full moon which occurs with the Moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given (yearly) orbit (perigee). In short, Earth, Moon and Sun are all in a line, with Moon in its nearest approach to Earth..”

And a slightly broader definition of SuperMoon by Fred Espenak as follows:

“…a new or full moon which occurs with the Moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a currently monthly orbit, relative to the most recent perigee and the upcoming apogee.”

The term supermoon is not used within the astronomical community, which uses the term perigee-syzygy or perigee full/new moon.  Perigee is the point at which the Moon is closest in its orbit to the Earth, and syzygy is when the Earth, the Moon and the Sun are aligned.

Super Moons of 2017/2018

Based on the above definitions, 2017 will have 6 supermoons as follows:

26 April 2017  – New Moon Super Moon
26 May 2017  – New Moon Super Moon  (Closest Moon of 2017)
24 June 2017 – New Moon Super Moon
23 July 2017 – New Moon Super Moon
4 November 2017 – Full Moon Super Moon
4 December 2017 – Full Moon Super Moon

Followed by the following Supermoons in January 2018:

2 January 2018 – Full Moon Super Moon
31 January 2018 – Full Moon Super Moon (& Blue Moon)

Effect of Super Moons – Physical

super-moon-full-moonReferring to the images right (click to enlarge), around each Full Moon and New Moon – when the Sun, Earth & Moon are located more or less on a line in space – the gravitational pull on the Earths Oceans are affected, hence the range between high and low tides is greatest.   These tides are referred to as SPRING TIDES.

During a SUPERMOON, due to the Moon being especially close to Earth, this alignment and greater gravitational pull of the Moon on Earths Oceans accentuates our Spring Tides even more… giving us an even HIGHER High Tide and an even LOWER Low Tide than normal.   These amplified tides are referred to as PERIGEE SPRING TIDES.super-moon-new-moon

It is unlikely that Perigee Spring Tides will cause flooding… unless of course the tides are associated with a strong weather system.

But it is interesting to note, that historically after a SUPERMOON (either Perigee Full or New Moon), strong correlations have been drawn between SUPERMOON energy and Earthquakes, Storm Cells & dramatic changes in weather patterns.

Effect of Super Moons – Energetic

Whilst Super Moons have been shown to affect the tides above, just like the Earth’s Surface humans are also made up of over 70% water… hence the gravitation pull of the Moon also affects us !

SUPERMOONS ‘amplify’ and affect our physical, emotion & mental states of beingness.

Based on the SUPERMOONS alignments with other planets, constellations & energetic bodies within our cosmos.. as well as the SUPERMOONS position within our own Astrological Charts, SUPERMOONS affect each individual differently.  But what can generally be said is that SUPERMOONS are amplifiers of our energy fields and awaken higher potentials of the current planetary alignments that they are associated with.

What does this all mean ?
Energy runs high during a SUPERMOON… you may feel more emotional, electric, experience sleep disturbances or have expressive / lucid dreams. You may also find your intuition is heightened, synchronicity more pronounced and you become more aware or sensitive to the energy of the environment / people / plants / animals… actually everything !

The best way to balance with this highly charged energy is to Earth yourself by walking bare foot on the ground, hiking in nature, swimming in a lake or the ocean or connecting with Crystals / Earths Crystalline Field.

Does a Super Moon look different ?

When comparing a SUPERMOON to a MICRO Moon, the Moon’s luminosity will be up to 30% brighter and the Moon will appear from Earth to be up to 14% Bigger.

super-moon-micro-moon-apogee-perigee

The Closest Supermoons

On November 14, 2016, the closest Full Moon SUPERMOON was 356,509 km.

The closest Full Moon SUPERMOON this year falls on the 4 December 2017 (357,492 km) and followed by 2 January 2018 (356,565 km).

Looking further into the future, the perigee full moon will come closer than 356,500 kilometers for the first time in the 21st century (2001-2100) on November 25, 2034 (356,446 km). The closest full moon of the 21st century will fall on December 6, 2052 (356,425 km).

MICRO MOONS – Definition

A MICROMOON is the Astrological term for the Moon (New Moon or Full Moon) when it is the furthest away from the Earth.  Astronomers call these moons ‘Apogee Moon’ meaning ‘away from Earth’.

Micro Moon is the term used by Astrologers, but Astromers refer to this as a ‘Apogee Moon’.

This years MICROMOON will fall on the 19 December 2017 (less than a day after the 18 December NEW MOON).

On the 19 December 2017, the Moon will lie about 49,395 km farther away from Earth than will the year’s closest full moon – the full supermoon on the 26 May 2017.

Moon in GEMINI  Sun in SAGITTARIUS
(22 Gemini 25 – 22 Sagittarius 25)

Moon – past, Intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, Identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Gemini (Air) – Fickle, witty, nervous, scattered, fun-loving, curious, versatility
Sagittarius (Fire) – freedom, leadership, adventure, spiritual, optimistic

The mid-point of our 29 day lunar cycle is marked by the Full Moon.  During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.

The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour & consciousness.  In addition, during a Full Moon, both the Moon & Sun are opposing each other on opposite sides of the zodiac… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.

The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego.  It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.  The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.

geminiDuring the GEMINI FULL MOON, the moon is reflecting the light of the SUN in SAGITTARIUS.

Gemini is all about communication (the ruling planet is Mercury after-all)… thus on this FULL MOON you maybe guided to take a long and hard look at how you communicate and the power of your words.

Do you do as you say, or are you all talk and no action ?  Do your words to others reflect your TRUE feelings or do you use words that are pleasing to others and not really reflective of your beliefs/desires/inner-most feelings ?

This FULL MOON will be a great time to take a long and deep look inward to your Self-Talk… are your thoughts nourishing and nurturing to self, or are the hurtful, harmful, angry or downright mean-spirited ?

Alternatively, are your thoughts/mental chatter completely out of control… hence so so vivid that it is sometime difficult to discern what are your thoughts or what are they the thoughts/energy of others ?

It is really interesting that in the media of late there has been so much discussion about FAKE NEWS and the LIES that are knowingly perpetrated within the media.  As the FULL MOON moves into Gemini on December 13/14, it will be a time to reflect on areas of your life where you may be telling your own lies or people may have been lying or deceitful to you.  Have you made assumptions based on the gossip of others and have you made judgements that have possibly been unfair/unjust ?

Overall, this FULL MOON is all about freely expressing yourself, and with the help of Sag, it will be the time to go out SPEAK YOUR TRUTH – party, network and meet new people.

It is a time to express what you feel in secret to those around you, and a time to express yourself creatively through song, poetry or artwork…so what a great time to make/create Christmas presents !

SUPER MOON

super-moon-micro-moon-apogee-perigeeOur December 13/14 Full Moon, marks the THIRD and FINAL in a trilogy of FULL MOON SUPERMOONS – over October, November & December 2016.

Whilst our December SUPERMOON will not come as close to Earth as our November SUPERMOON… it will still be VERY close at 358,462 km or   (the November Supermoon was 356,509 km or 221,524 miles).

Due to our December 13/14 FULL MOON close proximity to Earth, it will look up to 30% brighter /more luminous and up to 14% bigger than usual.

With this HUGE amplification of SUPERMOON energy drawing 2016 to a close, we can expect in these last weeks of the year to bring about HUGE changes within our lives…

As we countdown to the end of 2016, a universal 9 year in numerology… our SUPERMOON trilogy is paving the way for fresh wave of energy taking us into 2017.

Here is what we can expect during over our DECEMBER SUPERMOON… & recommendations of how to make the most of the Lunar Vibrations:

  • REFLECT. Acknowledge how far you have come and reflect on your lessons/learnings this year, embracing the wisdom of the journey, then taking on board those learnings in order to prepare for a new cycle.
  • LET GO. I know, I know… it has been a long running theme this year and you have heard it all before… but these last 3 SUPERMOONS of the year are signally the ‘death’ before a cycle of ‘rebirth’ as we enter 2017, a universal 1 year in numerology… a time of new beginnings (I will write more about this in early 2017).
  • FORGIVE. Forgive yourself, forgive others… holding grudges only keeps you as the victim.  You may have found this year, as we dived deep through retrogrades, eclipses & black moon.. that stuff from you past has been coming to the surface.  It is now time to finally let go, forgive and find closure, completion and reach a conclusion or resolution to situations or circumstances that have been dragging out for way too long now.
  • DETOX.  Be gentle with you and set aside time to care and nurture your body each day.  After a HUGE year of letting go, it is time to renew/refresh you cellular vitality and release the last remnants of e-motional stagnation deep within your cells.  Over the coming months maybe start your day with a little lemon juice in warm water, lush out on green-smoothies and if giving up coffee is a no-no… then at least add a little roasted dandelion… be kind to your liver it has worked hard this year ♡
  • EMOTIONS. Emotions will be amplified this FULL MOON… and dramas could run rampant.  Rather that feel all consumed with what is happening ‘out there’, it is a time to take a deep look within yourself.  What do YOU feel ?   Could what is happening outside of yourself have anything to do with something you are holding onto / fearing / hiding within yourself ?  What a great full moon energy to own the parts of you causing pain and then transform it into something in alignment with your HEART/Soul.
  • TRANSFORMATION.  Thus supersized December Gemini SUPERMOON may have you feeling like a tug-o-war is at play… the mind is racing to reveal the ‘TRUTH’ in all of your communications. The Sun in freedom loving SAGITTARIUS is PUSHING for change, for growth and for us to take a good hard look below the surface and move us out of our comfort zones.  Ouch !   On a poignant note TRANSFORMATION is going to happen… so you may as well surrender and evolve with grace & ease.

Overall, energy runs high during a SUPERMOON… you may feel more emotional, electric, experience sleep disturbances or have expressive / lucid dreams. You may also find your intuition is heightened, synchronicity more pronounced and you become more aware or sensitive to the energy of the environment / people / plants / animals… actually everything !

The best way to balance with this highly charged energy is to Earth yourself by walking bare foot on the ground, hiking in nature, swimming in a lake or the ocean or connecting with Crystals / Earths Crystalline Field.  PLUS eating whole LIVE foods will assist your detox and keep you in harmonic flow with nature.

SUPER Moon – November 14/15, 2016

super-moon-spiritual-energy-november-14
Following last Friday’s 11:11 Remember LOVE Portal, on November 14/15 we have a SUPERMOON !!!

This SUPERMOON is extra special… as our Full Moon hasn’t come this close to Earth since January 26, 1948 AND won’t come this close again until the Full Moon of November 25, 2034.

Sharing with you the energy of our FULL MOON and how to make the most of SUPERMOON energy !

FULL MOON – SUPER MOON – November 14/15

Moon in TAURUS  Sun in SCORPIO
Moon – past, Intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, Identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Taurus (Earth) – Patient, pleasure-loving, material, determined, conservative
Scorpio ( Water) – Passionate, emotional, willpower, psychic, determined

The mid-point of our 29 day lunar cycle is marked by the Full Moon.  During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.

During the TAURUS FULL MOON, the moon is reflecting the light of the SUN in SCORPIO.

What a combination of energy this full moon….and what a brilliant time to really reflect on how you FEEL about your life.

What are you being stubborn about and holding onto (yes we can all explain away WHY we have to hold onto things, and deny the truth of a situation)… but how does holding onto that energy/circumstance really make you FEEL.  AND what would it FEEL like if you let go of it ?

What a great full moon energy to own the parts of you causing pain and then transform it into something in alignment with your HEART/Soul.

SUPER MOON

super-moon-micro-moon-apogee-perigeeOur November 14/15 Full Moon, marks the second of a trilogy of FULL MOON SUPERMOONS happening over October, November & December 2016.

According to EarthSky.org, the Full Moon on 14 November 2016 presents the closest SUPERMOON of the year (356,509 km or 221,524 miles).

In addition, our November 14/15 Full Moon hasn’t come this close to Earth since January 26, 1948 AND won’t come this close again until the Full Moon of November 25, 2034.

Due to our November 14/15 FULL MOONs close proximity to Earth, it will look brighter, more luminous and up to 14% bigger than usual.

With this HUGE amplification of SUPERMOON energy drawing 2016 to a close, we can expect the last three months of the year to bring about HUGE changes within our lives…

SUPER Moon – 15/16 October 2016

supermoon-october-2016-lr

Not only do we have a Full Moon this coming weekend, but it is also a SUPERMOON which marks the FIRST in a trilogy of SUPERMOONS.  Sharing with you the energy of our FULL MOON and how to make the most of the SUPERMOON energy !

FULL MOON – SUPER MOON – October 15/16, 2016

Moon_FullSaturday, 15 October 2016 – 9:23 pm PDT (USA)
Sunday, 16 October 2016– 12:23 am EDT (USA)
Sunday, 16 October 2016 – 4:23 am UTC
Sunday, 16 October 2016 – 2:23 pm AEST (Australia)

Moon in ARIES  Sun in LIBRA
Moon – past, Intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, Identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Aries (Fire) – Leader, impatient, risk taker, action-oriented, outgoing
Libra (Air) – Romantic, indecisive, harmony, social, helpful

The mid-point of our 29 day lunar cycle is marked by the Full Moon.  During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.

The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour & consciousness.  In addition, during a Full Moon, both the Moon & Sun are opposing each other on opposite sides of the zodiac… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.

The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego.  It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.  The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.

From New Moon to  Full Moon, the Moon ‘waxes’, gradually increasing in light and intensity.  Just as the moon grows in light, so do we… our own inner-light shines brighter and more luminescent as we awaken to a greater truth and grow spiritually.  Then as the Full Moon reaches its peak it is a time of celebration, a time to share our new found wisdom & love with others and a time to let go of aspects of self that no longer serve.

The Full Moon is a great time to connect in sacred ritual/ceremony with the light of the Moon.  The Lunar Light amplifies our intuition, gifts us insight through our dreams and deeply inspires us to be of greatest service.  This Light also provides a catalyst to let go, release out-dated beliefs and transmute aspects of self that are no-longer in alignment with your illuminated beauty of Soul.

During the ARIES FULL MOON, the moon is reflecting the light of the SUN in LIBRA.  Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and exudes a wilful independence, a pioneering spirit that presents as the feeling of anything is possible.. balanced with the Libran energy that encourages us to walk this path in harmony and maintain equilibrium.     This will be an ACTION oriented FULL MOON pushing you to find balance in your life.

Its great to have passion, insight and the drive and be a leading agent of change… but if you have been giving giving giving and find yourself depleted… this is the FULL MOON to re-evaluate your priorities and CHOOSE to give to & nurture yourself first ♡

Our ARIES FULL MOON is also a SUPERMOON… and the first in a SUPERMOON Trilogy… keep reading below to understand the energy and how to work with this weekends SUPERMOON.

SUPER MOON

super-moon-micro-moon-apogee-perigeeOur October 2016 FULL MOON is a SUPERMOON… whereby the Moon is Perigee (close to Earth).   Our October SUPERMOON will thus appear slightly bigger & more luminous in the sky.
Read more about SUPERMOONS >

Due to the stronger gravitation pull of the Moon to Earth, the energy of this months Full Moon will be amplified, intense, with a twist of warrior energy adding to the fiery lunar mix.

Our October 15/16 Full Moon, marks the first of a trilogy of FULL MOON SUPERMOONS coming up over October, November & December 2016.  PLUS, according to EarthSky.org, the full moon on 14 November 2016 presents the closest supermoon of the year (356,509 km or 221,524 miles). In addition, our 14 November 2016 full moon will present the moon at its closest point to Earth thus far in the 21st century (2001 to 2100) and the moon won’t come this close again until the full moon of November 25, 2034.

With this HUGE amplification of SUPERMOON energy drawing 2016 to a close, we can expect the upcoming three months to bring about HUGE changes in your life…

As we countdown to the end of 2016, a universal 9 year in numerology… our October SUPERMOON (+ Nov & Dec SUPERMOONS) are paving the way for fresh wave of energy taking us into 2017.

Here is what we can expect during our October SUPERMOON & recommendations of how to make the most of the Lunar Vibrations:

  • REFLECT. Acknowledge how far you have come and reflect on your lessons/learnings this year, embracing the wisdom of the journey, then taking on board those learnings in order to prepare for a new cycle.
  • LET GO. I know, I know… it has been a long running theme this year and you have heard it all before… but these last 3 SUPERMOONS of the year are signally the ‘death’ before a cycle of ‘rebirth’ as we enter 2017, a universal 1 year in numerology… a time of new beginnings (I will write more about this in early 2017).
  • FORGIVE. Forgive yourself, forgive others… holding grudges only keeps you as the victim.  You may have found this year, as we dived deep through retrogrades, eclipses & last months (& this months) Black Moon.. that stuff from you past has been coming to the surface.  It is now time to finally let go, forgive and find closure, completion and reach a conclusion or resolution to situations or circumstances that have been dragging out for way too long now.
  • DETOX.  Be gentle with you and set aside time to care and nurture your body each day.  After a HUGE year of letting go, it is time to renew/refresh you cellular vitality and release the last remnants of e-motional stagnation deep within your cells.  Over the coming months maybe start your day with a little lemon juice in warm water, lush out on green-smoothies and if giving up coffee is a no-no… then at least add a little roasted dandelion… be kind to your liver it has worked hard this year ♡
  • RELATIONSHIPS.  With the Full Moon reflecting the light of the Sun in Libra this October 2016, RELATIONSHIPS are taking the stage this full moon.  Areas in your life where you have been giving giving & giving… and most probably feeling BURNOUT are to be addressed this Full Moon.  You will be inspired to re-write your story behind relationships and re-establish a new balance and harmony that nurtures YOU ♡ It is not your job to transform the world for others, but it is your job to transform it for you – Abraham-Hicks.
  • BE a WARRIOR & take ACTION.  With our October Full Moon in Aries, you will be inspired to ignite that inner-warrior and take a stand for what is important in your life.  Yes, it is a time to take ACTION and not sit on the side-lines waiting for that miracle to happen.  YOU are the creator of the miracles… so go for it !  There is no time like the present.

Overall, energy runs high during a SUPERMOON… you may feel more emotional, electric, experience sleep disturbances or have expressive / lucid dreams. You may also find your intuition is heightened, synchronicity more pronounced and you become more aware or sensitive to the energy of the environment / people / plants / animals… actually everything !

The best way to balance with this highly charged energy is to Earth yourself by walking bare foot on the ground, hiking in nature, swimming in a lake or the ocean or connecting with Crystals / Earths Crystalline Field.  PLUS eating whole LIVE foods will assist your detox and keep you in harmonic flow with nature.

Super Moons & Micro Moons – 2016

The Moon orbits Earth in an elliptical orbit, hence the distance of the Moon from the Earth varies throughout the year… from between 225,804 miles (363,396 km) at the Perigee and 251,968 miles (405,504 km) at the Apogee.

A SUPERMOON is a new or full moon which occurs when the moon comes within at least 90% of its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.   A SUPERMOON is an Astrological term, whereas Astronomers call Supermoons  ‘Perigee Full Moon’ or a ‘Perigee New Moon’ – with PERIGEE meaning ‘near Earth’.

A MICROMOON is the Astrological term for the Moon (New Moon or Full Moon) when it is the furthest away from the Earth.  Astronomers call these moons ‘Apogee Moon’ meaning ‘away from Earth’.

Super Moons of 2016

For a Moon to be deemed a Super Moon during 2016, the Moon must come within 361,524 km (224,641 miles) of Earth, as measured from the centers of the Moon and Earth.

Based on the above definition, 2016 will have 6 supermoons: the new moons of March, April and May, and the full moons of October, November and December:

New Moon Super Moon:  9 March 2016   Find your Local Time >
New Moon Super Moon:  7 April 2016   Find your Local Time >
New Moon Super Moon:  6/7 May 2016   Find your Local Time >

Full Moon Super Moon:   16 October 2016   Find your Local Time >
Full Moon Super Moon:   14 November 2016   Find your Local Time >
Full Moon Super Moon:   14 December 2016   Find your Local Time >

According to EarthSky.org, the full moon on 14 November 2016 presents the closest supermoon of the year (356,509 km or 221,524 miles). PLUS our 14 November 2016 full moon will present the moon at its closest point to Earth thus far in the 21st century (2001 to 2100) and the moon won’t come this close again until the full moon of November 25, 2034.

Effect of Super Moons – Physical

Referring to the images above, around each Full Moon and New Moon – when the Sun, Earth & Moon are located more or less on a line in space – the gravitational pull on the Earths Oceans are affected, hence the range between high and low tides is greatest.   These tides are referred to as SPRING TIDES.

During a SUPERMOON, due to the Moon being especially close to Earth, this alignment and greater gravitational pull of the Moon on Earths Oceans accentuates our Spring Tides even more… giving us an even HIGHER High Tide and an even LOWER Low Tide than normal.   These amplified tides are referred to as PERIGEE SPRING TIDES.

It is unlikely that Perigee Spring Tides will cause flooding… unless of course the tides are associated with a strong weather system.

But it is interesting to note, that historically after a SUPERMOON (either Perigee Full or New Moon), strong correlations have been drawn between SUPERMOON energy and Earthquakes, Storm Cells & dramatic changes in weather patterns.

Effect of Super Moons – Energetic

Whilst Super Moons have been shown to affect the tides above, just like the Earth’s Surface humans are also made up of over 70% water… hence the gravitation pull of the Moon also affects us !

SUPERMOONS ‘amplify’ and affect our physical, emotion & mental states of beingness.

Based on the SUPERMOONS alignments with other planets, constellations & energetic bodies within our cosmos.. as well as the SUPERMOONS position within our own Astrological Charts, SUPERMOONS affect each individual differently.  But what can generally be said is that SUPERMOONS are amplifiers of our energy fields and awaken higher potentials of the current planetary alignments that they are associated with.

What does this all mean ?
Energy runs high during a SUPERMOON… you may feel more emotional, electric, experience sleep disturbances or have expressive / lucid dreams. You may also find your intuition is heightened, synchronicity more pronounced and you become more aware or sensitive to the energy of the environment / people / plants / animals… actually everything !

The best way to balance with this highly charged energy is to Earth yourself by walking bare foot on the ground, hiking in nature, swimming in a lake or the ocean or connecting with Crystals / Earths Crystalline Field.

Does a Super Moon look different ?

When comparing a SUPERMOON to a MICRO Moon, the Moon’s luminosity will be up to 30% brighter and the Moon will appear from Earth to be up to 14% Bigger.

The Closest Supermoons

The dates of the closest SUPERMOONS (Full Moons) in recent and future years are as follows:

March 19, 2011
May 6, 2012
June 23, 2013
August 10, 2014
September 28, 2015
November 14, 2016
January 2, 2018.

After our November 14, 2016 SUPERMOON on the Full Moon, the next closest Full Moon SUPERMOON until January 2, 2018.

Looking further into the future, the perigee full moon will come closer than 356,500 kilometers for the first time in the 21st century (2001-2100) on November 25, 2034 (356,446 km). The closest full moon of the 21st century will fall on December 6, 2052 (356,425 km).

Micro Moons

A MICROMOON is the Astrological term for the Moon (New Moon or Full Moon) when it is the furthest away from the Earth.  Astronomers call these moons ‘Apogee Moon’ meaning ‘away from Earth’.

Micro Moon is the term used by Astrologers, but Astromers refer to this as a ‘Apogee Moon’.

One fortnight (approximately two weeks) after the year’s nearest new moon on 7 April 2016, it’ll be the year’s farthest and smallest full moon (MicroMoon) on 22 April 2016.

This April 22, 2016 full MicroMoon will lie about 50,000 kilometers (30,000 miles) farther away from Earth than will the year’s closest full moon – the full supermoon on November 14. The April 22 full moon is the year’s farthest full moon because full moon and lunar apogee – the moon’s farthest point in its monthly orbit – both happen less than one day apart.

Refer to NASA & Timeanddate for more info on Micro Moons.

Super Moons & Micro Moon – 2015

A SUPERMOON  is a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.  Thus in order to be a Super Moon, the Moon must come within 361,863 kilometers (224,851 miles) of our planet, as measured from the centers of the moon and Earth.

What did astronomers call these moons before we called them supermoons?   They called them a perigee full moon, or a perigee new moon.

Perigee just means “near Earth.” The moon is full, or opposite Earth from the sun, once each month. It’s new, or more or less between the Earth and sun, once each month. And, every month, as the moon orbits Earth, it comes closest to Earth. That point is called perigee. The moon always swings farthest away once each month; that point is called apogee.

Super Moons of 2015

Based on the above definition, 2015 will have six supermoons: the new moons of January, February and March, and the full moons of July, August and September.

New Moon Super Moon:  20 January 2015 – 11:14 pm AEST
New Moon Super Moon:  19 February 2015 – 9:47 am AEST
New Moon Super Moon:  20 March 2015 – 7:36 pm AEST

Full Moon Super Moon:   31 July 2015 – 8:43 pm AEST
Full Moon Super Moon:   30 August 2015 – 4:36 am AEST
Full Moon Super Moon:   28 September 2015 -12:51 pm AEST

It is interesting to note that in 2014 we had 2 supermoons in one month, but we will not experience this again until 2018 !

According to EarthSky.org, the full moon on 28 September 2015 presents the closest supermoon of the year (356,877 kilometers or 221,753 miles).  However, the new moon on February 18/19 isn’t far behind, featuring the year’s second-closest. At a distance of 357,098 kilometers or 221,890 miles, the new supermoon on February 18/19 lies only about 200 kilometers farther away than the September 28 full supermoon.

Effect of Super Moons – Physical

Referring to the image on the right, around each new moon (moon is on left in image) and full moon (moon in on the right in image) – when the sun, Earth, and moon are located more or less on a line in space – the range between high and low tides is greatest. These are referred to as Spring Tides  (Image:  www.physicalgeography.net)

Will the tides be higher during the supermoons ? Yes, all new moons (and full moons) combine with the sun to create larger-than-usual tides, but perigee new moons (or perigee full moons) elevate the tides even more. Each month, on the day of the new moon, the Earth, moon and sun are aligned, with the moon in between. This line-up creates wide-ranging tides, known as spring tides. High spring tides climb up especially high, and on the same day low tides plunge especially low.

Will these high tides cause flooding? Probably not, unless a strong weather system accompanies the perigean spring tide. Still, keep an eye on the weather, because storms do have a large potential to accentuate perigean spring tides.

Effect of Super Moons – Energetic

Whilst Super Moons have been shown to affect the tides above, just like the Earth’s Surface humans are also made up of over 70% water.. hence Super Moons after ‘amplify’ our energy fields. Based on the Super Moons alignments with other planets, constellations & energetic bodies within our cosmos.. as well as the Super Moons position within our own Astrological Charts, Super Moons affect each individual differently.  But what can be said is that Super Moons are amplifiers of our energy fields and awaken higher potentials of the current planetary alignments that they are associated with.

What does this all mean ?  Energy runs high during a Super Moon… you may feel more emotional, electric, experience sleep disturbances or have expressive dreams.  The best way to balance with the energy is to Earth yourself by walking bare foot on the ground, swimming in a lake or the ocean or connecting your body somehow with nature.

Closest Supermoons

Closest full supermoons in the year’s ahead
More often than not, the one day of the year that the full moon and perigee align also brings about the year’s closest perigee (also called proxigee). Because the moon has recurring cycles, we can count on the full moon and perigee to come in concert in periods of about one year, one month and 18 days. Therefore, the full moon and perigee realign in periods of about one year and 48 days. So we can figure the dates of the closest full moons in recent and future years as:

March 19, 2011
May 6, 2012
June 23, 2013
August 10, 2014
September 28, 2015
November 14, 2016
January 2, 2018.

There won’t be a perigee full moon in 2017 because the full moon and perigee won’t realign again (after November 14, 2016) until January 2, 2018. By the way, some astronomers will call all the full moons listed above proxigee full moons. But, like you, we’ll have fun just calling ‘em Super Moons.

Micro Moons

A micro moon is the name given to a Full Moon that occurs when the moon is farthest from the Earth.

One fortnight (approximately two weeks) after the year’s nearest new moon on 18/19 February, it’ll be the year’s farthest and smallest full moon on 5/6 March, 2015, referred to as a Micro Moon.

Refer to NASA & Timeanddate for more info on Micro Moons.
