Note: Perigee New or Full Moons (also called Super Moons by many) usually happen in a series of 2 or 3.
The challenge with a Perigee New Moon is you can’t see it. The Sun is with Moon so the exact moment we calculate the New Moon is hidden by the Sun. Ancient cultures (as do some cultures to this day) used the first sighting of the Cresent Moon as the way to begin the Moon Cycle. This was their way of having a visceral experience of the New Moon. The perigee New Moon is usually not visible (unless there is an eclipse) though its effect is likely to be felt, making this an extra powerful time for seeding and then manifesting intentions.
Jan 5/6, 2019 is a Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon though in 2019 is not connected to Perigee Moon. The partial eclipse creates a Vesica Pisces image as seen in the picture to the right. This has interesting implications when we consider the disk of the Sun and the Disk of Moon intersect to create a symbol also linked with the Flower of life.
The Vesica Pisces is a symbol older that written history. It is thought to be how God and Goddess join together to create new life. It also is reminiscent of a Portal and in the case the portal is forming on the edge of the Sacred Hoop of Stars.
More on the Flower of Life
This sacred geometry known as the Flower of Life is formed by overlapping circles arranged in a flower like pattern with many interlocking hexagons. The Flower of Life is an ancient symbol some believe is related to the Akashic Record of life representing the essence of enlightened consciousness.
We can utilize this imagery to help craft our New Moon Eclipse intentions as even a partial eclipse magnifies whatever we are holding in consciousness.
This partial Solar Eclipse is visible in Southern Australia (including Adelaide, and Melbourne) though most of the Eclipse is over the Pacific and Indian Ocean.
The Cycle of Perigee New Moons and Full Moons
The cycle of Perigee New Moons and Full Moons repeats after 14 lunar months (meaning either 14 New Moons or 14 Full Moons the return of three Perigee Moon Three Series – according to the starting phase- recurs). The next perigee New Moon series begins August 01, 2019.
Perigee Full Moons
2018 began with a Perigee Full Moon (meaning it was closest to the Earth) so the Moon appeared bigger as it was rising on January 1 and also at the end of January is a second Perigee Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse. The image to the right gives a sense of how much bigger a Perigee Full Moon is compared to a regular Full Moon.
Also a Perigee Full Moon (now called a Super Moon by many) has a powerful impact on Tides, Weather and our Intentions. It is a fairly well known experience by many who work in hospitals that more babies are born around a Full Moon than any other time of the month. Three of my four children were born near a Full Moon including my twins who were born 20 minutes before an exact Full Moon. There tend to be more accidents and emergency room visit around a Full Moon time but even more so around a Perigee Full Moon as it is amplifying what we are feeling.
When a Perigee Full Moon and a Total Lunar Eclipse occur together I like to call that a Super Mega Moon providing a quantum amplification of our intentions or what we are holding in our consciousness accelerating the manifestation process.
How Does the Perigee Full Moon Affect the Beginning of 2018?
Lunacy is connected to the intensity of feelings often associated with a Full Moon – so a Perigee Full Moon is amplifying that affect. Are opportunity is to connect with these amplified energies through attention and intention to not only be informed by the Perigee Full Moon affect but to also help inform the mysteries through our intention and how we are working with these energies as we set the vibrational field for 2018.
The New Year is typically a time when many of us set our intentions for the year and beyond. 2018 pacts a powerful energy for doing this with the Perigee Full Moon on January 1 and then followed by the Perigee Total Lunar Eclipse on January 31.
Total Lunar Eclipses accelerate the energy of our intention as it compresses the monthly Moon cycle that normally takes 29.5 days to go from Full Moon to Full Moon into 3 to 5 hours. This Perigee Total Lunar Eclipse is visible in north western South America, throughout most of western North America, Asia, Australia, the Middle East, eastern Africa, Eastern Europe, the Pacific ocean and the Indian Ocean.
If you happen to be in the path of the eclipse watching it is a great way to ceremonially engage it. I have also found watching it with others increases the potential affect and the sense of wonder and magic that accompanies a Lunar Eclipse. If you are living somewhere the Moon is not visible you can always tune into through intention and meditation to connect with the power of this Timing.
