Hello to all you magick makers out there I am Marissa DiAradia – Sin City Witch – hoping to provide a little extra insight to make your week even more magickal with this quickie explanation of the term “Super Moon”

So What is a Supermoon ? We see this word all over social media and there are articles galore about the life changing energy of the super moon !!!

Well I personally love the moon and as a believer in astrology, pagan & witch the moon is very important to me but the super moon is actually a very common occurrence and happens about 3 to 4 times a year… so it is not some super rare event. It is actually based on an astronomical event when the moon enter the point in its orbit called the “perigree” which is the closest approach to earth during its travels around the elliptic. The phrase Super Moon was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979 to describe this closer than usual proximity to earth.

It is hard to see the increased size of the super moon with the naked eye but it can be as much as 14% larger than usual and some people insist that they can see this.

Now that being said I absolutely believe that what happens in the heavens has an affect on our lives here on earth … I also believe the moon influences many things astrologically, magickally as well as scientifically. So this energy being closer to the earth will absolutely intensify energies and even the tides will be higher than usual but it is not the harbinger of the apocalypse or an ancient sign of a prophecy being fulfilled … It is a natural occurrence that will sometimes activate transits & eclipses and always  intensify the energy available during its journey.

So there is your quickie definition of the term “Super Moon” hope it cleared things up for you.
