July 13, 2022 Features the closest Perigee Full Moon of this year, plus this Capricorn Full Moon is Out Of Bounds adding to the wild card factor.
The Impact of Perigee New Moons and Full Moons (also referred to as Super New Moons or Super Full Moons)
The Total Lunar Eclipse May 15/16 2022 was also a Perigee Full Moon amplifying the impact.
A Perigee Full Moon is spectacular to see as the Moon rises into the evening sky appearing bigger than normal. This also means there is a greater chance of wild energy beyond the higher than normal tides including possible earthquakes and volcanic activity as the Moon has a strong pull on the Earth’s magnetic Field
Note: Perigee New or Full Moons (a.k.a. Super Moons) usually happen in a series of 2 or 3 (see table below)
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 a three Perigee Moon Series – according to the starting phase – recurs). See the next perigee New or Full Moon series in the table below.
Perigee Full Moons
The image here shows how much bigger a Perigee Full Moon is compared to an Apogee Moon or when the Moon is farthest away from Earth. It is the Apogee New Moon that creates an Annular Solar Eclipse creating a Ring of Fire around the Sun.
Also a Perigee Full Moon (now called a Super Moon by many) has a magnified 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 about an hour 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.
Perigee Full Moon Affect
Lunacy is connected to the intensity of feelings often associated with a Full Moon – so a Perigee Full Moon is amplifying that affect. Our 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 .
Perigee Full Moons and 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.
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.
Working Ceremonially with ANY Full Moon Can Be Life Changing
The effect of a Partial Solar Eclipse is magnified if it is also a Perigee Moon
When visible the partial eclipse creates a Vesica Pisces image. 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…
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(when the next one occurs) as even a partial eclipse magnifies whatever we are holding in consciousness.
There were 13 Full Moons in 2020 from January 10 to December 29 with two Full Moons in the month of October – this won’t happen again until 2023. See Understanding the Blue Moon for why this is so.
