Super Moon & Spring Equinox

Tomorrow night, March 19th makes a Super moon event. This is a time when the full moon coincides with a close proximity to the earth. Apparently this is the closest the moon has been to earth in 18 years. That does mean high tides and gravitational pull, some say enough to affect continental shift as well. A Super moon has been linked to natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis and such. Well, it seems we are already experiencing that, so maybe it's time to let go of the fear and focus on the positive aspects of the moon.

The full moon is in Virgo and according to my We"Moon 2011 book, that means a focus on work and accomplishing tasks. Apparently it's a good time to start a new project so that you can take it to completion. It's a good time to sort out where you should be. Set your goals, while still being gentle to yourself and others.

The full moon comes just one day before the Spring Equinox. Equinox means "equal night" and refers to the time when the sun crosses the equator. This means day and night are almost equal in length everywhere in the world. How's that for being connected! In the Northern hemisphere, the spring equinox signifies the beginning of spring. In the Southern hemisphere it signifies the beginning of Autumn. Perhaps where ever you are, the significance is on new beginnings.

With nature sending us so many clues, it's a good time to wake up and consider where you really want to be in your life. And if anything is out of balance, let this be an opportunity to shake it up and realign in new and positive ways.

All this shifting and realignment of the earth, the moon, the sun, and within ourselves, can be a little unsettling. Walnut is a Bach flower essence to consider taking if you need help with this change. It can help you reset your balance and adjust to the negative aspects of changing environments so you can experience the positive results. Wild Oat might also be helpful as you try to find your place in the big scheme of things. It may help you identify your goals and ambitions so you can move ahead, clear in your direction.

If you are feeling "off" these days, perhaps just allow yourself to feel that way, secure in the realization that you are experiencing nature's shift because of the connection. Use the power of nature's shift to propel you in positive ways and enjoy the sense of renewal.

Dance in the moonlight, bask in the sunlight, and enjoy the moments of change.


  1. Thanks for the great information. My friend and I did an ritual for the Super Moon/Spring Equinox, releasing energies we are ready to leave behind, and preparing ourselves to receive the good new energies we need in our lives.

  2. Good for you for celebrating! I think the conscious intention to do something like that and make it a ritual, are important- and fun!!
