the supermoon is when the moon is the closest it will ever been in the calendar year. a supermoon occurs approximately every 411 days, in average every 14 months, meaning at least once a year. also known as perigee-syzygy.
perigee simply means the closest point to earth in the moon’s monthly orbit. that happens once every month because the moon has a slightly egg-shaped orbit around earth.
syzygy refers to when the sun, earth and moon are aligned. that happens twice every month, at new moon (when the moon is between the sun and the earth) and at full moon (when the earth is between the sun and the moon).
we have exactly 4 supermoon's we will be confronted with, at least for the moon sensitive of us. giving us the optimal opportunity to create for spiritual practices charged by the super moon for us to become also more moon tolerant.

supermoon always happens on new moon's or full moon's. on the new moon we might not see the moon, but the energy is just as strong, if not stronger than the full moon (never underestimate the power of the dark moon).
as for a super full moon, it is more in our face and apparent to the naked eye. it then appears to be about 16 times brighter and 7% bigger than a regular full moon. definitely a lot of extra moon energy to work with!
tidal waves are also higher than on regular new moon and full moon's. some astrologers even have speculated that supermoon's are responsible for natural disasters.
some astrologers don't consider a moon to be a supermoon that is not under 360'000 km away from earth. so, not everyone will consider this full moon in march to be a super full moon. however, i still believe that the energy is there, amplified, preparing us for the upcoming supermoon's ahead.
how to harness the energy of a supermoon
use this super-charged energy to your advantage. on a supermoon is when energy is the most heightened, emotions are being amplified and expressions intensified. energy is the strongest on a night before/after or on the actual supermoon. that would be the best time to create ritual, meditate, journal, do vision work, sit in ceremony.
☾ shadow/release work
☾ visualization practices/vision work by reciting affirmations/mantras, journaling your visions, creating vision boards
☾ or sit in ceremony with yourself/friends/sisters for 3 nights or for at least one night on either the supermoon itself, or a night before/after.
