The full moon of November 14 is not only the closest full moon of 2016, but also the closest full moon to date in the 21st century,” says NASA. "The full moon won’t come this close to Earth again until 25 November 2034.”
Poornima, or the full Moon tithi, will begin at 9:47am PST, today! This super, super Moon will also appear 14 larger and 30% brighter than what we would normally view on our full Moon phase.
Moonrise in Seattle tomorrow is at 7:26 am PST - so be sure to check it out when it rises up over the east-southeast horizon! And before it sets Sunday night (if the skies are clear) before at 5:15pm PST, since we won’t get a glimpse of it in it’s fullest state here before moonrise tomorrow morning in the pacific northwest.
▪ Poornima (full Moon phase) begins 11/13 at 9:47am PST and ends 5:51am PST on 11/14.
▪ The Moon will be at its fullest at 28:31 Aries, in the nakshatra (lunar mansion) of Krittika, which is ruled by Agni, the fire god.
Lunar Expressions: Set your intentions now!
The Sun in strong and exalted in Aries (the first house of self) and weak and debilitated in Libra (the 7th house of the other). Interestingly the Sun will be at an extremely weak position at the end of Libra during this full Moon. Conversely, the Moon will be most powerful! The (Moon) mind, our emotions and desire will be much stronger than the (Sun) soul at this time.
The full Moon is falling in the lunar mansion (nakshatra) of Krittika.
Krittika nakshatra is presided over by Agni, the God of Fire. The shakti of this nakshatra is to burn and purify and the purpose (or purushartha) is desire (kama). The full Moon signals the end of the 28 day lunar cycle.
Here are some things to consider today as we approach the completed full Moon tomorrow morning:
▪ Which part of life as it relates to the self and other, along with the minds desire is coming to a close?
▪ What must be burned or transformed within the desire of the mind and the self to make way for a partner or spouse to evolve and grow?
Take some time today to contemplate this very important and powerful new moon phase and set your intentions now!
