Super Moon in Perigee: May 5th 2012 Beltane Sabbat
Perigee Moon occurs on Beltane Sabbat, Cross-Quarter Celebrations. See
next two posts.
The Full Moon will be 14% larger than normal during this perigee. It is
only about 2% closer to the Earth, but the pull does have some effect.
Tides will only increase 2 to 6 inches, but that is over the entire
Lunacy, it is tied to the Moon and its supposed to describe effects on
animal nature. An old term that really has no truth, but is still
recognized in various cultures, including the western world. The Moon is
the Earth?s lifeblood, without it we would not exist.
Full moon magick is a powerful time, you will feel the pull of the moon
in your body. Living things like your herbs will draw their essence into
the plant above ground in response to this pull. The ocean is influenced
by the moon, so are our bodies and the bodies of all living things, as
is the Earth herself. Best spells to perform at this time are:
Prosperity, building wealth, investing
Luck and Gambling
Success in job interviews
Selling a home or business
Moving to a new location
Rekindle of lost or past love
I believe this is a particularly wonderful time to introduce someone to
your Spiritual beliefs, to ask someone to join you in a Sabbat
celebration or just to shadow a ritual with you. The Moon is an Icon and
a very familiar sight, so it is an easy subject to discuss and use to
introduce your ideas.
The powerful draw of the moon phases are used to do different kinds of
magick. Waxing and Waning triggers earthly change in all things, so we
also use this timing to our advantage. Roots are stronger when the moon
is set as their essence resides most deeply in the earth at this time.
Flowering and leafy plants draw the moisture of their essence into the
upper plant as the moon influence increases with its rise. Again, the
same as the tides of the ocean are stronger and weaker due to influence
of the moon.
This weekend we have a ?Super Moon? at perigee, which is when the moon
comes closest to the Earth. Now is one of the best times to evoke magick
and call on the Goddess to bless spellwork of any kind. There was a
Dark Super Moon in 2008, another event that can be a boon to spellwork,
but that is in the future.
Many people thought the perigee Super Moon of 2011 was one of the
triggers for the Tsunami in Japan on the 13th. Our Earth Mother has
other reasons for her reactions, this may have contributed to the
strength, but was not the underlying cause. Scientific studies prove
this event did cause stronger tides, an obvious conclusion, but natural
disasters have a diversity of triggers that we cannot predict.
Nature is an amazing enigma. We are learning more about how the moon
affects us individually, and we can use that knowledge to gain a power
over the things we want.
