This is going to be a very special time when abundant blessings will be made available. According to Pranic healers, this will be a chosen time of blessings for restoration of spiritual health. Meditation and contemplation accompanied with bodily purity, fasting if possible or food which is obtained without harming / causing violence to animals is highly recommended to complement spiritual opening.
The Super moon to appear Saturday May 5 2012, 11:54PM Eastern Time. A “supermoon” is the coincidence of a full moon (or a new moon) with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, or perigee, leading to the technical name for a supermoon of the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system.
On Saturday and Sunday (May 5- 6) the “supermoon” of 2012 appears along with the Eta Aquarid meteor shower and both will hit their peak. While the bright full moon could interfere with the meteor display, some of the shower’s brightest fireballs should still be visible late Saturday and early Sunday.
In addition, astronomers are saying that the “supermoon” will be even more super than usual. “The last full moon so big and close to Earth occurred in March of 1993,” Geoff Chester of the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington D.C. told USA Today. This supermoon (a phrase coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979) will appear especially large because the moment of perigee—when the moon is closest to the Earth in its monthly rotation—will coincide with the appearance of a perfectly full moon. During last year’s supermoon on March 19, 2011, for comparison, the perigee and full moon were 50 minutes apart. The moon will be 221,802 miles away from Earth Saturday night; (the average distance is 238,855 according to NASA.) That’s 17,053 miles closer.
This all translates to a moon that will appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than other full moons this year, according to NASA. (An astronomer interviewed by National Geographic says 16 percent bigger.)
The moon actually won’t become totally full until tonight at 8:35 p.m., and it then will be perigee, or super, at 8:40 p.m. and the actural moonrise begins at 8:09 pm reaching it’s zenith at 11:54 pm.
The Super Moon happens about every 20 years as the moon comes closer to Earth in its elliptical, egg-shaped, orbit. It does exert a bit more gravitational pull influencing weather and people.
There is a legend that goes along with the Super Moon event where earthquakes, volcanoes erupting and general human mayhem happens. Astrologer Richard Noelle put forth that Idea about 30 years ago; he wrote about the Super Moon legend: “Super Moons are noteworthy for their close association with extreme tidal forces working in what astrologers of old used to call the sublunary world: the atmosphere, crust and oceans of our home planet – including ourselves, of course.”
Noelle referenced the spiritual transformation this Super Moon can represent – and present to us for reflection. The universal healing forces of Virgo and Pisces are the spiritual energies present during this Super Moon. These two energies combined, according to astrologers, is about being called to a service higher than the Self. This is a time to make a commitment to devoting your personal energies to the highest Good, along with humility and surrender of the ego to Spirit.
The cosmos are a reflection of ourselves on a much larger scale.. The planetary body has an atmosphere and so do we. On a spiritual level, with the super moon, it is a time to detox the air (your thoughts), water (your emotions), earth (your physical space) and fire (obstacles to living your life with passion). In short, this is a special time to get spiritually stronger and meet the intensity of this moment during the Super Moon.
The Moon represents our instinct on a spiritual level. The Super Moon is considered special in spiritual belief systems. This Super Moon is happening in the constellation Virgo presenting a need for healing by breaking through.
Envision the Super Moon as a healing presence in your life to help you make the necessary adaptations and adjustments. It can create a cosmic alignment to your path of life service, and even present a few personal miracles! So, “go with the flow,” allow the crust of old wounds to break away. Enjoy the new healing as it emerges to help you walk your spiritual path, and unleash a renewed and stronger person.
Suppose we were to take in a deep breath, the air sucked into our mouth is three times as much as a normal breath. Now let’s translate this analogy to the Moon and its pull on the Earth. During full moon and new moon days the whole Moon is pulling Earth and the effect is as if in the earlier analogy the Moon is taking a deep breath. We find that the circular atmosphere of three times the size of the moon is attracted from the Earth.
The generic subtle (intangible) effect of the moon
All objects including stars, planets and satellite bodies along with their gross (tangible) attributes emanate subtle (intangible) frequencies. These physical attributes and subtle frequencies affect us in varying degrees at a physical and subtle level.
The frequencies emanating from the Moon affect the frequencies of the mental body, i.e. mind of human beings. By ‘mind’ we mean our feelings, emotions and desires. The mind consists of the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind. Within the sub-conscious mind we have a number of impressions that are embedded that decide our basic nature and personality. We are however not aware of the thoughts or impressions in our sub-conscious mind. These impressions get collected over a number of lifetimes.
