Make sure you do get outside to see the moon tonight!
It is termed a ‘Supermoon’ because the moon is a bit closer to the earth this month and from our eyes appears larger. Because of this, it is possible we will feel stronger than usual effects from the moon this month.
Luckily for the most part it is an auspicious one.
This month’s full moon is in the sign of Libra and the lunar house of Swati. This lunar constellation line up of the moon marks Hanuman Jayanti, the birthday of Lord Hanuman. The mythology considers Hanuman the ultimate devotee, a symbol of both devotion and strength. The sign of Libra is connected to others, relationships, and partnerships of all types.
The Moon, particularly the full moon, is also about social relationships, making this full moon very strong for connection. Directly opposite this is the sign of Aries, where sits Sun, Venus, and Mercury. Sun is very strong in this sign of Aries, its sign of exaltation, where it tends to be proactive and goal-oriented. But both the Sun and the sign of Aries can also be a bit self-centered. These three inner planets tend to stay close together and do well together, but having three planets in this self-oriented sign comes into strong contrast with this relational full moon.
This combination of the very other are oriented full moon and this self-oriented group of planets in Aries makes themes of balancing self and others very key for this upcoming couple weeks. The lunar house of Swati, the nakshatra of this month’s full moon, can tend to be a bit scattered and the full moon energy can make us feel that way as well. It is always a good idea to remember to stay balanced and centered when the energies are high, even if all that energy is essentially positive. It can still be intense!
