Will the Supermoon wreak more havoc on the world?

By |2011-03-14T07:11:43-04:00March 14th, 2011|Ecology|

SupermoonAstrology is back in the mainstream news, with that have been circulating the internet lately:

The powerful tsunami that today slammed into Japan’s eastern coast comes just two days after warnings that the movement of the moon could trigger unpredictable events on Earth.

Astrologers predicted that on March 19 – a week tomorrow – the so-called ‘supermoon’ will be closer to Earth than at any time since 1992, just 221,567 miles away, and that its gravitational pull will bring chaos to Earth.

Others on the Internet have predicted it will cause further catastrophes such as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.

I’ve written quite a few times on this blog about the “Supermoon” phenomenon, which can be traced back to astrologer Richard Nolle who coined the term.  A “Supermoon” is said to occur when the Full Moon is at perigee, meaning it is closer to the Earth than any other time.  Is the March 19 Supermoon that different from any other Full Moon at perigee?

Now that Richard is being bombarded with questions on this topic to clarify the mystery:

There are 4-6 SuperMoons a year. The one on March 19, 2011 is in fact the closest SuperMoon of the year, but it’s not by any means the first one in 18 years, nor even the first extreme SuperMoon in 18 years. The truth is, March 19 will be the second SuperMoon this year, and we only have to go back to January 30, 2010 to find the last example of an extreme SuperMoon; as revealed in my tables published in the last century. There was a SuperMoon in effect February 12-21 this year in fact, which anyone who actually read […]

What’s the opposite of Supermoon?

By |2010-08-26T14:41:32-04:00August 26th, 2010|Astronomy|

moon at apogeeAstrologer coined the term Supermoon to describe the Full Moon at perigee when it’s closest to the Earth.   Last night’s Full Moon was at apogee and at its furthest from Earth, so the Moon appeared about 15% smaller than usual.

The influence of the Moon does appear to be more intense when it is at perigee and therefore appears larger, so perhaps last night’s Minimoon did not pack as powerful a punch.

This Full Moon is a Supermoon

Full Moon Supermoonphoto taken from

The Full Moon on January 30st will be a very interesting event – so interesting that it’s getting its own radio show entitled “.”  It’s not only a powerful Moon astrologically, but it’s at perigee, meaning it’s at its closest proximity to the Earth.  This is why it is so big and beautiful, but it’s also more powerful now.  says it’s the biggest Full Moon of the year, and astrologer , who coined the term “Supermoon” as far as I can tell, predicts “an increase in coastal flooding due to higher than usual tides, a gaggle of strong storms with high winds and heavy precipitation (triggering inland flooding), and of course an up-tick in moderate to severe seismic activity (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes as well as volcanic eruptions).”

This Full Moon will stoke the fires of our inner aggression and challenge us to direct that fire wisely. The Moon is in the fire sign of Leo – the sign of expressing the Ego and expansion of the Self. The Leo Moon conjoins Mars, also in Leo, and opposes the Sun and Venus which are both in the impersonal (or transpersonal) sign of Aquarius.

The theme of this Full Moon is that of balancing the shadow of the inner fire for self-direction with the solar conscious principle of fairness and justice for all. This balance is not easy to achieve, but we have in the chart of this Full Moon the additional aid of a harmonious sextile between Pluto (transformation) and Jupiter (philosophy and Truth). We are certainly aware that our personal desires (Moon/Mars) are conflicting with what we know to be necessary in order […]

Astrological forecast for the week of March 25, 2019, including Saturn/Pluto

By |2019-03-25T11:24:03-04:00March 25th, 2019|Uncategorized|

There’s been a lot of action in the astrological skies lately:  Uranus shifting back into Taurus, Chiron moving back into Aries, and a SuperMoon at the Equinox.  Things are settling down some, but the news is not all good because Saturn and Pluto are at the closest point to a conjunction as they will be until they meet next year.

Saturn (tests and challenges) and Pluto (creative destruction) are both in Capricorn and will collide in January of 2020.  The combination of these two planets generally denotes a destructive force that can clear the path of any debris that is interfering with the natural movement of the Universe towards balance.  This has the potential to be a positive force, but it is also associated with contraction and challenge, especially now since both planets are in the contracting sign of Capricorn. Saturn and Pluto will not reach the full conjunction this year, but between the end of March and the end of June they will be close enough that we will begin to feel the belt tightening.  This is not a time for risk taking, especially if your own chart is affected, and we will likely see a recession occur during the summer in the financial markets.

Mercury (mind and communication) is retrograde in the mystical sign of Pisces right now, and on the 25th Mercury aligns with Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces, to open up the higher creative and inspirational centers.  This alignment will continue a bit after Mercury turns direct, until about April 4th.  The next week is perfect for creative endeavors and anything requiring imagination or spiritual exploration.  It is less excellent for business ventures or making decisions that require a practical and grounded approach, especially with Saturn […]

This equinox Libra Full Moon brings a shift in perspective

FULL MOON AT THE EQUINOX!!

The time of the Full Moon, when the Sun in the sky is exactly opposite the Moon from our vantage point on earth, is always a time for balance.  The Sun is our conscious Self – our goals, our visions, our ideas that combine to create our lives.  The Moon illustrates our instincts and our subconscious needs and desires – the emotions that can be murky but always real and true.

The lunar cycle is symbolic of the dance between our conscious awareness and the inner world of the emotions, a polarity which requires balance and integration just as all polarities in astrology do.  The entire wheel of the zodiac is a system of polarities, in which each pair of signs represent oppositional forces that require balance and integration.  That is particularly true when the Moon is in Libra, the sign that more than any other embodies this dance.

Libra seeks to live an experience of harmony through peaceful interaction with others and a love of beauty and aesthetic pleasure.  This can lead to a highly sensitive nervous system, especially at the Full Moon.

The Full Moon in March occurs at 0 degrees Libra, with the Sun at the Aries Point.  This will be a significant energy portal as we shift into the new season under the Aries/Libra polarity.   Not only is this a new season, but the emotional impact of the Full Moon supercharges the shift from darkness to light, from winter to summer.  This is also a SuperMoon, meaning it is at its closest point to the Earth, but it is also at the first degree of the cardinal signs that shift us from one season into […]

Planetary news this week! January 21, 2019

By |2019-01-22T06:48:36-04:00January 21st, 2019|Planetary news this week|

January horoscopesOn the heels of a Full Moon, Supermoon and lunar eclipse last night, the Moon continues to move through Leo where it helps to expand our hearts and find our inner enthusiasm.  Meanwhile Mars (assertive energy) is nearing the midpoint of its trip to Aries, but a challenge from Saturn could cause some trouble over the next few days as our enthusiasm and motivation (Mars) is stressed by Saturn’s restrictions and a sense of limitation.  This is a good time to proceed slowly towards perfection rather than run impulsively into the fire of our desire (wait a minute, that is poetry!).

Venus (love and beauty) aligns with bountiful Jupiter over the next few days, and both planets are in the optimistic sign of Sagittarius.  Optimism and faith abounds now, but that pesky Saturn influence may put the kibosh on plans temporarily.

Between the 22nd and 24th Mercury is very active which will stimulate mental activity and enhance communication.  Mercury aligns with the South Node of the past on the 21st, turning our thoughts for a day or two to learn more about where we’ve come from so that we can better serve our future,  just before it moves into Aquarius on the 24th and aligns with the Sun.  When Mercury is in Aquarius, the sign of the scientist and wizard/inventor, our minds are just a bit sharper – reasoning takes precedence over raw emotion and we are able to think clearly and with innate wisdom.  There is not much water influence, other than Chiron and Neptune, and since water tends to enhance our connection to feelings and emotion we may find ourselves strongly oriented in the head and mental body.

Our drive and energy will find easier expression when Mars […]

Planetary news this week and the Supreme Court

By |2018-09-25T09:04:08-04:00September 25th, 2018|Planetary news this week, Politics|

This week’s biggest news of course is the big Aries Full Moon that occurred on the 24th.  Not big as in Supermoon big, but big as in eight planets all linked together in a dance of high energy planetary juju.  The energy of Full Moons take about three days to culminate and then about three days to dissipate so we are still riding the waves of that explosion of energies.

In the US news, the disruption of the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is a classic manifestation of the energies of this Aries Full Moon.  Mercury in Libra, desiring fairness, was tightly aligned to both the Sun and Moon, as was Chiron which brought up old wounds of the past to be addressed and hopefully resolved.  Uranus did indeed foster a disruption of the status quo which was looking like a seamless nomination and confirmation process.

This week we have a triple conjunction of the South Node (events of the past) to Mars (assertion and need) that includes the Black Moon Lilith, a force of primal feminism and the astrological mascot of the MeToo movement.  Combined with the lingering energies of the Aries Full Moon, this planetary dynamic will remain in effect at least until Friday.  Since allegations of sexual assault (connected with the Black Moon Lilith) are involved, I suspect the Supreme Court nomination process will not be resolved and more Kavanaugh accusers will come forward during this period.

Venus is in Scorpio now too, encouraging intense and passionate interactions which could overpower the tendency of Mercury in Libra towards polite conflict resolution.

It will be an interesting week!

How to use summer’s final eclipse at the Leo New Moon

By |2018-08-09T19:11:09-04:00August 9th, 2018|Moon|

August 11 solar eclipse.  On August 11 we will experience the last in a series of three summer eclipses at the Leo New Moon.  This is not a particularly powerful eclipse astronomically as it is a partial eclipse.  It’s also not as powerful an eclipse astrologically since the lunar nodes, the points in the sky which turn a New Moon into a solar eclipse, will be thirteen degrees away from the lunation unlike the July 27th solar eclipse in which the nodes were very close to the Full Moon.

Still, this is a SuperMoon New Moon, just as the July 13th eclipse was a SuperMoon New Moon (™), meaning the Moon is closer to the earth than at other times.  This intensifies the qualities of the New Moon AND the solar eclipse as the lunar effect is more directly personal.

This Super New Moon is in Leo, the sign of the creative Self.  In a solar eclipse, the instincts and needs of the Moon eclipse, or overcome, the conscious motivations of the Sun.  However, both Sun and Moon are in the same sign, aligned and yoked together in partnership to assist us in forging a new beginning of the lunar cycle – in the case of Leo, a new beginning in finding the light and majesty of our True Selves.

Many aspects of our lives may have been stalled during the past few months with Mars in retrograde motion, followed by Mercury retrograde.  Mercury is lined up with the Sun and Moon at this eclipse, waking up the brain and the mind and helping us with improved communication and language skills. Proper use of the mental realm and communication is an […]
