This past Saturday many people witnessed what's called a supermoon. The moon looks bigger because it's closer to the planet. Here's a technical explanation from NASA.
"The last full Moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March of 1993," says Geoff Chester of the US Naval Observatory in Washington DC. "I'd say it's worth a look."
Full Moons vary in size because of the oval shape of the Moon's orbit. It is an ellipse with one side (perigee) about 50,000 km closer to Earth than the other (apogee): diagram. Nearby perigee moons are about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser moons that occur on the apogee side of the Moon's orbit.
"The full Moon of March 19th occurs less than one hour away from perigee--a near-perfect coincidence1 that happens only 18 years or so," adds Chester.
I didn't get outside to see the event, myself. I had a very full weekend. And therein lies a tale.
My family and I took one of our road trips to visit family in New Jersey. It's a long drive and usually takes us around five hours, give or take. I spent a good bit of that drive wondering how close we were to the Mercury Retrograde. (It turns out we're in the shadow.) Because I have never seen such driving in my life. But, I thought, a Mercury Retrograde in no way could explain the level of lunacy and the number of near misses we experienced.
The scariest moment was when a big rig decided to change lanes without warning and very nearly smashed us against one of those cement barricades they put up around road work. My husband laid on the horn and slammed on the brakes and, thankfully, the truck driver righted himself. But the whole trip to and from was full of slightly less terrifying brushes with death. It was one of those situations where you realize you've wandered into an environment of collective insanity. Everyone was driving at their own rate of speed, from ridiculously slow to disturbingly fast. And they were all driving as if they were alone on the highway. This is I-95 we're talking about, where you're never alone. People were just changing lanes on whim a without warning or turn signal. And at least one driver nearly parked in our trunk. I literally lost count of the number of accidents we barely avoided.
Now, I've been a little distracted with a number of things, including my near obsession with the James Ray sweat lodge trial, and I hadn't been paying full attention to what was really an interesting confluence of cosmic events. As stated, we entered the shadow of the retrograde in the middle of last week. We had the vernal equinox yesterday and on Saturday, the supermoon. Full moons always affect us. It's called lunacy for a reason. And we also entered the solar maximum cycle a short while ago. There have been some really epic ejections over the past week as you can see here. As discussed, there are concerns over the earth's magnetosphere. In addition to the stresses this places on the planet in the form of earthquakes and volcanic activity, there is an impact on the human psyche.
So, now, I'm going to repeat my concern over earthquakes. I am particularly concerned over California. This is in part because I'm not the only one who's been getting psychic flashes about California over the past year or so. In part, it's because geologists have voiced concerns. And, quite selfishly, it's because of personal concern over my numerous clients and friends in that state. But there are also earthquake concerns over the Pacific Northwest and the San Madrid fault that runs through the Midwest.
My particular, immediate concern comes from the fact that the Time Monks are looking at a pending click over into release language on March 25th; a massive outpouring actually. And in looking at Ure's blog, I see that he is also now expressing concern over the potential for the West Coast, including California.
Still, that doesn’t defuse the predictive linguistics from www.halfpasthuman.com which has us dropping into release language on the 25th., While we await that, I notice that Arch Crawford, a notable astro-econ researcher, is saying out in the march 19-26 area, we could have “something bigger than Japan” in the works…
The real center-of-attention for me this morning has been trying to figure out where that West Coast quake could be should the Bigger than Japan quake forecast come in sadly right.
I'm also very concerned because I feel like I'm being electrocuted and I would have expected that kind of psychic overwhelm to have dissipated since the quake in Japan. Instead, it's increased so I'm afraid there could be something massive around the corner. Please, trust your intuition and trust your pets' intuition. And stay safe.
