Sunday inspiration: Finding balance in the Capricorn Moon

Athena

Today’s Full Moon is getting a lot of press because it’s literally the biggest Full Moon of the year – a Supermoon as coined by astrologer Richard Nolle. From a post on the Astrosignum Facebook page: “When the Moon’s feminine energy is combined with Capricorn’s discipline and drive for success, the result is a powerful, successful and disciplined female. The Greek goddess Athena immediately came to mind as a feminine archetype that knows her own worth and is not afraid to engage in the affairs of the world.” That combination of […]

Summer Solstice and a Super Full Moon

13544203_s

The Sun entered Cancer today, marking the Summer Solstice and the beginning of the astrological summer season.  The Sun has been transiting over Jupiter for the past week which generally brings about a more expansive and optimistic atmosphere.  With the entry of the Sun into Cancer, it separates from Jupiter and there is some potential that we will fall to earth in a serious reality check. This fall will have a relatively soft landing, since Saturn (the planet that governs reality checks) forms a trine to the Cancer Sun and […]

Richard Nolle predicted the earthquake in Turkey

If you don’t already subscribe to Richard’s planetary forecast, I strongly recommend it. In his October forecast he notes that the Scorpio New Moon on October 26th is a SuperMoon with potential for significant geocosmic effects: The likelihood of destructive storms, seismic events (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes and volcanic eruptions) as well as extreme tidal surges associated with the October 23-30 SuperMoon shock window is planet-wide in potential. If there are signs of particular target zones, they may be suggested by the astro-locality map for this alignment. This includes a longitudinal […]

The Virgo Full SuperMoon, March 19 2011

Full-Moon

The Moon will be full today, Saturday March 19th, at 2:10 pm EDT.  The Moon is full in Virgo, and it is opposite the Pisces Sun in the sky.  The Virgo/Pisces polarity relates to a blending of our experience of life in the material world (Virgo) with our desire to seek a more transcendent experience (Pisces). As you probably know, this Moon is a Supermoon (® Richard Nolle) and is closer to the Earth than other times of the year (see this earlier article for more information) When the Moon […]

Will the Supermoon wreak more havoc on the world?

supermoon

Astrology is back in the mainstream news, with articles like this 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 […]

What’s the opposite of Supermoon?

apogee-perigee

Astrologer Richard Nolle 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

The Full Moon on January 30st will be a very interesting event – so interesting that it’s getting its own radio show entitled “Fire and the Full Moon.”  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.  Spaceweather says it’s the biggest Full Moon of the year, and astrologer Richard Nolle, who coined the term “Supermoon” as far as I can tell, […]

Solstice Full Moon tomorrow!

I interrupt the Obama series to bring you the Full Moon! NASA reports: On Wednesday night, June 18th, step outside at sunset and look around. You’ll see a giant form rising in the east. At first glance it looks like the full Moon. It has craters and seas and the face of a man, but this “moon” is strangely inflated. It’s huge! You’ve just experienced the Moon Illusion. There’s no better time to see it. The full Moon of June 18th is a “solstice moon”, coming only two days before […]
