A Super Moon is known by Astronomers as a Perigee Moon – the point where its elliptical orbit is closest to the Earth’s surface which will allow the Moon to appear approximately 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than normal. Nasa is indicating that this rare Super Moon “… will be especially “super” because it’s the closest Full Moon to Earth since 1948. We won’t see another Super Moon like this until 2034.”
A Full Moon occurs when the Moon moves into an opposition to and reflects the light of the Sun. In this case, the Full Moon in Taurus is reflecting the light of the Sun in Scorpio – the sign associated with the underworld. Taurus is an earth sign and its overall desire is security. It wants to sustain the status quo and not rock the boat. Scorpio, however, is all about shaking things up through deep change – otherwise known as transformation!
This Super Full Moon is occurring during a Scorpionic aftermath of the most tumultuous election the United States has yet to experience and it has left many in shock and disbelief. Those who have “the power” versus those who do not, is the Scorpionic theme reverberating throughout our country. A large percentage of the population fears that their deeply held values (representing survival) will be threatened.
A very bright spotlight on the dual nature of these two signs (Taurus-Scorpio); the dual nature of our country; and the dual nature that exists within each of us is exposing this wide schism at its core. In light of current events, I re-posted the following article that I wrote in 2011 titled, A Wake-up Call; a Revolution; or Both! — Uranus Moves into Aries. The time is now! We are living during a unprecedented cosmic planetary shift that is requiring each of us to wake-up: We must balance the male and female aspects that exist within each of us; we must recognize the spiritual beings – gods and goddesses – within us all, and we must reunite our heavenly and earthly realms — literally and symbolically.
Expect this Full Moon to bring awareness and inner revelations regarding how you love yourself and therefore, love others. And, most importantly, focus on creating self-love and inner security, as this Super Full Moon is sure to prove a potent test for those who believe that their security comes from external resources. During this powerful Full Moon it is an excellent time to contemplate and initiate new intentions for the following:
- To appreciate beauty and the finer things in life without a need to possess or own.
- To display self-worth that radiates inner security regardless of my financial status.
- To honor and nurture my individual gifts and values.
- To love myself unconditionally.
