A Super Moon is a New or Full Moon closely coinciding with perigee, the Moon’s closest point to Earth, in its monthly orbit.
Intensity of a Super Moon!
A Super Moon is at its most intense when it is a Super Full Moon. There are also several Super New Moons each year. Because it’s so close to Earth, a Super Full Moon looks about 16% brighter than an average Full Moon. Super Moons don’t happen every month because the Moon’s orbit changes orientation as the Earth goes around the Sun. There are usually three of each in every calendar year.
Super Moons Affect the Oceans!
In addition to appearing larger and brighter than normal, a Super Moon can also affect the oceans. Why are the tides at their strongest around Super Moons? It’s simply because the Moon is at its closest to Earth, and thus the Earth’s oceans are feeling the pull of the Moon’s gravity most powerfully. Expect higher-than-usual tides for a few days, especially following a Full Super Moon.
How a Super Moon Affects Us!
A Super Moon brings with it an opportunity for introspection and to go within. It is a time to delve inside yourself and to work out what you really wish to manifest for your life. When you sync your energy up to the vibration of the Moon, not only will you feel more in tune with your emotions, but you will also be able to vibrate in harmony with your more intuitive side.
A Time to Heal!
If you have old emotions, or challenges coming up at this time, breathe your way through. The Divine Light of the Super Moon shines brightly into all areas of life, illuminating any darkness, density, or limiting beliefs and patterns still needing to be released. You’re being given a beautiful opportunity to heal patterns, uplift your vibration, and align with your inner light. Don’t let it pass you by.
Since emotions are so easily accessible during this time, it’s the perfect opportunity to acknowledge and release them. This will help clear your Chakras and allow for the healing energy of the Super Moon to work its magic. You can do this by journaling, which is powerful in being able to express your inner truths and feelings. You can also write out your intentions, make decisions about what you really want, and fully embrace your truest self.
Journaling by a Super Moon!
When journaling by a Super Moon, close your eyes and listen, with stillness, to what you need to hear. When you are ready, open your eyes and gather your paper and pen, and then allow the words or images to flow out onto the paper. Write as much or as little as you feel called to. Decorate the page with drawings or symbols, highlight words, make lists, or just write until there is nothing left to write. Put them away for awhile, until you are ready to read them again, and then analyze your thoughts. Be prepared for some very surprising revelations.
