Astro-logical Forecast for 5/5/2012: Full Moon in Scorpio
A few words about the Full Moon in Scorpio, exact tonight at 11:35PM ET because…well…I said I would write something. And because a few readers are wanting to know what a Supermoon is. Credit astrologer Richard Nolle with coining that phrase to describe “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 (called perigee)”. Look up and that Moon will look very BIG in the sky. Closer to Earth suggests a more intense Full Moon than usual, and experience shows that we often see weird, wacky weather along with it. Another fun fact, especially for Scrabble buffs: With the Earth, Moon and Sun all in a line (called syzygy), and with the Moon in its nearest approach to Earth, a Supermoon is also called perigee-syzygy. I challenge you to play “syzygy” in your next Scrabble game.
- Syzygy: Astronomy . an alignment of three celestial objects, as thesun, the earth, and either the moon or a planet: Syzygy in thesun-earth-moon system occurs at the time of full moon and new moon.
- Perigee: Astronomy . the point in the orbit of a heavenly body, especially the moon, orof an artificial satellite at which it is nearest to the earth.
My north node/Dragons head is in Taurus and the DT/South node in Scorpio; I also have Mercury in Scorpio at 17 degrees and Neptune Scorpio at 20 degrees; What type of “shaking-up experience” am I to expect?
Without knowing the rest of your horoscope, I’m not convinced a shaking-up experience is something to be expected, though you may be drawn to intangible experiences or escapism (music, healing, spirit), and/or have an especially illuminating and inspirational exchange of ideas or brainstorm as a result of a “fated” encounter.
