What Is A Supermoon?
End-Time Scenarios & Forecasts of Danger
Supermoons are generally defined as bright and close moons with the biggest one happening back in 2011. This much ballyhooed lunar event passed without the gloom and doom predictions that surrounded it, so more recent supermoons are noted more for their brilliance and prominence, though many noted astrologers still consider a supermoon to have more influence on a person's star chart. Did a Supermoon on March 19, 2011 cause of natural disasters and flooding? No! Considering that an earthquake on March 11, 2011 has unleashed damage and devastating tsunamis, an astrologer's idea of a supermoon, which indicates the moon's closest proximity in 18 years, may not be that far fetched. The moon, normally about 251,000 miles away, will be 221,567 miles from earth, which means that there will be more lunar gravity. The moon will also be full, which means it may look bigger as well. Astrologer Richard Noelle predicts huge storms, earthquakes, volcanoes and other natural disasters. If the closer moon's gravity affects tectonic plates, it could increase the chances for earthquakes by increasing or reducing pressure on weak spots.
Scientists, meanwhile, indicate that the supermoon phenomenon is not going to have an appreciable impact on natural disasters. It should be noted that earthquakes, storms, and other incidents happen regardless of the moon's position, and in some cases multiple factors influence earthquakes and storms. In early Earth history, the moon was only 15,000 miles away, so it had some drastic effects on the planet, dragging tides across the earth and causing all kinds of disturbances, but this probably wasn't very good for the moon either, since our gravity pulls harder.
From an astrology standpoint, and even from a psychological one, a supermoon could create chaos in people who are afraid of a world ending scenario. Predictions of end times and other catastrophies can lead cults to take drastic actions, and even ordinary people may change their behaviors in such a way that impacts the economy and their own lives. The only thing to fear about a supermoon may be fear itself. However, if astrologers and horoscope makers are correct, the moon's influence on your life may have profoundly positive or negative effects.
