Did you know that on June 23, we will see the biggest moon of the entire year? This lunar phenomenon is known as the "supermoon" and holds a lot of meaning for astrologers. The June 23 moon will be the nearest and therefore the biggest full moon of 2013. It will occur at precisely 11:32 p.m. Universal Time.
What Is a Supermoon?
The supermoon is when the moon is in the closest point of its orbit to Earth for that particular month. The moon's closest point to earth is known as "perigree." If this coincides with the full moon, the moon can appear larger than it usually does. When the moon is at perigree, it is only 221,824 miles away from Earth. This supermoon will be the moon's closest encounter with Earth until Aug. 10, 2014. On the next supermoon, the moon will be five kilometers closer to Earth. The next years, in 2015 and 2016, the moon will come even closer.
In contrast, the farthest point for the moon away from Earth is known as "apogee." This will happen on July 9, when the moon will be 252,581 miles away.
Astrologers theorize supermoons are capable of triggering massive damage to Earth in the form of disasters such as volcanic eruptions, tidal waves, earthquakes and more. Some of the biggest natural disasters in recent history have taken place during supermoons, such as the 2011 Japanese Earthquake, the 2005 Indonesian Tsunami and the 1992 and 1993 Midwest floods, superstorm and blizzard.
The combined effect of the moon (as well as the sun) on Earth's oceans is greatest when the moon is new or full. When there is a supermoon, the tidal force is stronger. This supermoon will bring the highest and lowest tides of the year. These are known as spring tides and they climb up especially high, then plunge lower than usual. If you live along a coastline, watch out for high tides during the supermoon. These high tides are unlikely to cause flooding, unless there is a strong weather system around the coastline.
What does this year's supermoon hold for you? How would it affect your energy?
