OUR FULL MOON this week promises to be spectacular, in more ways than one. Firstly, it is one of only a small number of Supermoon Full Moons that will grace our skies in 2021. "Supermoon" is a term coined by astrologer Richard Nolle, and refers to a lunation that occurs when the Moon is at its closest orbital proximity to the Earth.
Visually, this week's Full Moon will appear "14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser Full Moons of 2021" (Spaceweather.com). It will also appear big and bright for about three nights, from Sunday through Wednesday. Energetically, since the Moon will be so close to the Earth, we can assume that emotional reactivity will be heightened above and beyond the usual "lunacy" we experience with a Full Moon.
Adding to that intensity, Luna will be at 07°06´ Scorpio at the time of the lunation, which occurs on Monday, April 26, at 8:32 p.m. PDT. Scorpio is a very complex sign emotionally and psychologically, and is known for being passionate and perceptive. As the Moon opposes the Sun in Taurus, the sign known for its love of peace, beauty, and simplicity, we are asked to find the balance in our own lives between these two polarities.
