The next Full Moon is on November 14th. This is the closest Full Moon of the 21st century. It should be a great photo op and here is why. 

This is another one of those “super moons” we have heard about. The term was first used by astrologer Richard Nolle just 30 years ago but has only become widely used and recognized in the past five years. This term describes a moon that is at its perigee syzygy. You can also say it’s at the closest point of its orbit to earth in a given moon cycle.

Last month’s Full moon was also called a “super moon” because it was within a 10% range of being closest to earth. This range of closeness is what defines a super moon and is why there are so many super moons per year. Last month’s Full Moon and the December Full Moon are also classified as “super moons”, but this month’s Full Moon is the closest, biggest and brightest one this year. It is in fact, the closest one in the last sixty-eight years! Yes! The last time the Moon was this close to earth was on January 26, 1948. 

Now if you are really are interested in seeing the Moon at its biggest, closest, and brightest, and live east of the Internation Date Line, you might need to look at the Moon on Sunday, November 13. All points west of the date line will see it best on the 14th. If you happen to live in or around the longitudes of Europe and Africa, then both nights will give you a wonderful view. Get a good look now because it will be another 18 years before it is this close again.

Energetically speaking, this Moon has a stronger effect on us than other Moons. Its aspects to other planets and it affect on our emotions is also increased. Those of us that are sensitive, have been feeling it for day or so at least and I dare say that the elections were somewhat influenced by this energy.

Not only are the planetary aspects affected, the tides are larger than usual and low tides are lower than usual. This strong energy can sometimes cause storms and can contribute to an increase in earthquakes, crimes committed,  and the number of babies born. At this writing, I don’t see  where a storm is expected for the U.S. in the next few days but we all know how quickly the weather can change. Don’t you wish people could change just as quickly sometimes? I would not hesitate to expect some strong emotional and personal storms occurring over the weekend and into next week. Especially among those whose charts are strongly triggered by the Moon. Remember, the Moon is closely associated with our emotions. 

Should you be one of those who is intensely affected, I hope you will use this energy for your personal evolution. Taurus and Scorpio people and those with Scorpio and Taurus aspects to the moon in their charts will be the ones who perhaps feel this energy the most. I have a Scorpio ascendant. Mars and Saturn are also in Scorpio in my natal chart. During this Full Moon, the Sun will be conjunct my natal Mars. I feel a  weekend of deep reflection coming on for me. 

Whatever you have planned for the rest of the week and this coming weekend, I wish you well in all your endeavors. Remember we are all the same and created by the same creator regardless of what some would have us think. We all deserved love and deserved care and respect. And by all means, get outside Sunday and Monday night to see this beautiful Full Moon.
