Super Moons 2019: Major, Major Transitions
SuperMoon Over Washington
A rising full Moon is always breathtaking and creates drama on Earth. Expect extra drama with a full Moon at 0 degrees of a zodiac sign: an ending instantly followed by a tripwire into a new beginning. Expect a further dollop of drama if the full Moon is closer than normal to the Earth and appears up to 16 percent bigger and brighter: a SuperMoon.
The first three full Moons of 2019 are SuperMoons. We are already prepared; the world saw and felt the imperious full Moons of November 19 and December 22, 2018. They introduced an astronomical rarity: a string of five full Moons at 0 degrees of their zodiac sign:
November 19, 2018: Full Moon at 0 degrees of Gemini.
December 22, 2018: Full Moon at 0 degrees of Cancer.
January 21, 2019: Full SuperMoon at 0 degrees of Leo.
February 19, 2019: Full SuperMoon at 0 degrees of Virgo.
March 21, 2019: Full SuperMoon at 0 degrees of Libra.
At ground zero of a zodiac sign, the Moon is on the cusp between two signs. That full-Super-Moon energy is likely to bring a sense of insecurity to us all, on the outside but especially on the inside, in January, February and March 2019. But we do get a cosmic assist.
So What Will Happen?
News events on and around the 0-degree full Moons so far provide a taste of what's to come:
November 19, 2018 full Moon, and a few days after: Historic California wildfire takes 100,000 acres and 85 lives. Three hundred thousand Yellow Vest anti-tax protestors march in French cities and towns. U.S. border guards tear-gas a Central American refugee caravan.
December 22, 2018 full Moon: The U.S. government shuts down. The stock market plunges and recovers three days later. A sudden tsunami kills 222 in Indonesia. The day before: James Mattis, U.S. secretary of defense, resigns to protest a presidential order.
January 21, 2019 full Moon: The "blood moon" "wolf moon" super Moon presides over a still shut-down U.S. government; the White House no longer gives press briefings. Chaos after Venezuelan and Congo presidential elections.
Every Full Moon “flavors” the lunar month following. What happens at the time of the SuperMoons will echo a little longer and louder than normal.
None of these events could have been halted by worry or looking the other way. Blame games haven't been fruitful. In your own personal life, recent major changes made you think, "I can't go on," but we are lucky: All the solar system's planets are supporting us.
What If You Couldn't Count On. . .
The nights of full Moons in particular are restless nights, with the Moon’s illumination intensified, and the Moon casting at maximum its “rays.” In classic astrology, “rays” are the cloud of light an astral body reflects or emits.
The Sun’s rays are so bright all planets and stars near it are obscured. The Moon too has its own halo of light. In January, February and March lunar “rays" will be casting their exceptional brightness well into the previous zodiac sign even when the full Moon crosses the line, at 0 degrees, into the next. This obscures the immediate past and immediate future. Decision-making is extra hard (yet it must be done).
Cusps are unstable points in the universe. It doesn’t matter what Sun sign you are. You needn’t examine your birth horoscope to feel or understand this string of Full Moons at 0 degrees. Just ask: What part of your life seems most secure? And what if you could not count on it anymore?
We could react with fear. Or we could see adventure, opportunity, or a test of our maturity and moral character.
Harnessing the Power of January 7 to March 5
The Moon in astrology represents our emotional lives and psyche or soul that we each live submerged in. It is our personal reality, our inner galaxy of thoughts, feelings and memories. No other human can enter that inner space or occupy it fully. You are its manager.
Prepare your inner self for a transition and then act. Make the calls. Have the conversation. Take the chance. Save up. Don’t drag your feet. The first months of the year 2019 will be historic and no joke.
We luckily have, precisely at that time, a rare and beautiful cosmic assist: From January 7 to March 5, 2019, no planets are in retrograde; absolutely none. This offers us clarity and a direct path from Point A to Point B. Do what you can, now, to heighten your confidence spiritually and materially.
We've Survived This Before
SuperMoons cast extra light, both ahead and behind the Moon. So while trying to create a future we will be thinking of the past and of people we cared for who have left the Earth or are estranged. Beginnings tend to be shaky or tentative. Think back, though, on how many beginnings you’ve made already. You rode out what felt like chaos with courage and virtue.
These will be high-tension months whether we believe in astrology or not. Things fundamental to all our lives will be radically changing. Grab the chance to make progress.
