Tonight, on January 1st, we will be watching the first Super Moon for 2018. Only a month ago we had Super Moon in December 3rd. Recall how it affected you. This year we will have only one such Super Moon and it will be tomorrow.
Everyone writes about the Super Moon, which we see only twice a year, but what exactly does this mean and what this Full Moon will bring to us?
Tonight the Moon will be in Perigee, ie. closest to the Earth. This phenomenon was called by the ancient astrologers also perigee-syzygy perigee. It will be 96.7 ° from the Earth. That’s why we will see her enormous and powerful. Not only will she be impressive, her energies will be impressive as well. The perigee of the Moon, the moment when she will be closest to us will be at 21, 49 hours CET.
Exactly on January 2nd at 2.24 am, the Moon and the Sun will stand in opposition (180 °) and this will be the exact Full Moon.
How will this Super Moon affect us?
The Moon is in conjunction with one of the Twins- Gemini of the constellation Gemini and this is the more spiritual Twin-Castor. In the Mythology of Babylon, he, Castor is Gilgamesh and is a 2/3 God and 1/3 man. He was a mighty ruler. Castor- Gilgamesh is an extremely powerful star of great spiritual significance. Castor brings knowledge.
The effects of this Full Moon will be especially strong, because the Full Moon happens in the Gemini constellation, which is significant for our era, because at 5 ° there is the point of the Summer Solstice. Twins- Gemini are lit by the rays Sun, literally and symbolically.
In addition, the Moon’s influences will be more constructive than heavy, because this phase of the Full Moon occurs after the Acronyical Rise and before the Cosmic Setting. A perfectly harmonious arrangement.
This is about the position of the Super Moon in Gemini. However, she takes part in a complex configuration with other planets. The Moon receives non-harmonious aspect from Uranus that afflicts her and also a complicated aspect from the Sun’s conjunction with the invisible Venus and Saturn, and Pluto. Mars and Jupiter are in a harmonious relationship with the Moon, and Mercury is visible in the sky like as a Morning Sky.
This will certainly bring us knowledge, new ideas, creativity. It could also denote to some complex emotional statuses. Some may feel suppressed and feel the Moon quite heavily. Recall how the previous Super Moon worked on you. It was only about a month ago. It will not be the same feeling, but could be similar.
To find out how it will work, see how the Moon is placed on your natal chart, whether your birth is diurnal or nocturnal (during the night or the day), ask even your intuition, and recall how such a Full Moon and the other Full Moons have acted on you.
It is possible that the influences of this Full Moon will be felt until the end of the lunar month – about two weeks more. Take advantage of this for new knowledge, enhancing intuition, memory, completing tasks in a creative way, learn. Really enjoy the creative energies. They come from Castor and the entire Twins. Uranus also brings originality, albeit in its sharp way.
As long as the Full Moon lasts, do not take risks until January 3rd. Be careful while driving and do not engage in conflicting situations. The Full Moon is also never appropriate for surgical interventions. It will not bring us love for sure, at least until Venus is invisible. Then we’ll see.
In ancient Babylon, such days were occasions for feast and spiritual rituals. People did nothing new, some were seated in the temple, where they meditated and contemplated, others even celebrated.
It is best to benefit from this at Full Moon, to spend time on spiritual practices, to ponder, to learn.
In fact, how we will experience the energies of this extremely powerful and gorgeous Moon is entirely our choice. Let’s make the happy choice!
