Supermoon on 22nd July 2013. What will the affects be and how will it affect you?

How will the Supermoon affect you have you been wondering? Did the you notice an increased affect from the supermoon we had in June 2013?

We have another Super Moon coming up on 22nd July 2013! This Super moon won’t be quite as powerful or as ‘super’ as the super moon of June 2013, however you should still feel her increased strength and glory. Since she is closer to us, the moon appears up to  bigger and  brighter than the usual full that we see. Our Moon will be less than 222,000 miles from Earth on Sunday 22nd July.

Astronomers term this upcoming full moon a perigee full moon, however it is commonly known as a supermoon. The word perigee describes the moon’s closest point to Earth for a given month. The opposite, when the moon is at her furthest point, is called an apogee.

This definition 'supermoon' was  coined by astrologer Richard Nolle, he  defined a supermoon as:
“… a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.”

All full moons bring higher-than-usual tides, and perigee full moons bring the highest (and lowest) tides of all. Similarly these supermoons have an increased affect on the cells in our bodies. At the full moon all water on our planet is pulled towards the moon. Therefore if the moon is closer there is a greater pull and the affects will be felt more strongly.
You may feel the usual affects of the full moon are accentuated during the time of the supermoon therefore. The full moon affects different people in different ways and thus the same applies to the supermoon. You may find you are more restless than usual or you may have more energy. We may often experience much more turbulent emotions than we re used to and it is important to recognize that when we are decision making.
If you are able to then try and plan ahead as to how you may use any excess energy you may have and plan your supermoon nights! Prepare for the increased emotion and use it as an opportunity for growth, however do not make any rash decisions that you may later regret.
Enjoy the wonderful energy of the July Supermoon and bask in her energy.
Why not try making some wonderful Supermoon water- see my previous post on moon water. Full Supermoon water
