The Full/Super/Equinox Moon 3-19-2011
March’s full moon is my favorite every year. I can still remember last years March full moon like it was yesterday, It was absolutely breathtaking. It’s as if March’s full moon is speaking for the Earth and telling us that spring is finally here. This year, the March full moon is extra special, falling the day before the equinox, and it is a SuperMoon. It will be the largest full moon in nearly 20 years, and could appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than a normal full moon.
A SuperMoon occurs when the full or new moon is at lease at 90% of its perigee position. There are actually 4 or 5 SuperMoon events a year, but this will be the largest moon that we have seen since 1992. If the skies are clear they will be alight with the glow of divine light this Saturday. Don’t miss out on viewing this beautiful moon as well as performing your Esbat on a night that is sure to be filled with magic.
