Cool Moon (Lunar) Excitement for 2014!

The New Year On A New "Super" Moon




On the day when most everybody puts their intentions "out there" for the Universe to gather, many people may not have been aware that the First of January was on a New Moon.


We consider the time of the new moon as the time of birthing. Birthing new ideas, intention and seeding new ventures. This is also called the dark of the moon. This time also marks the beginning of a major new cycle in your life. It is not yet a definitive seperation with the past, but it is a time when old familiar patterns lose energy and you instinctively feel an impulse for creating new beginnings. Setting your intentions and releasing them out to the Universe to manifest and express. What better day to day this than on New Year's Eve when the clock strikes midnight! This particular moon is also considered a Super Moon!


There will be several Super Moons in 2014. January 1st and another one January 30th, These are both new moons while the others will be full moons. What is a super moon? I think EarthSky.org says it best:


“The term supermoon didn't come from astronomy. We used to call them perigee… "near Earth." An astrologer, Richard Nolle, is credited with coining the term supermoon. He defines them as:


. . . a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth.


“By this definition, a new moon or full moon has to come within 224,851 miles of our planet, as measured from the centers of the moon and Earth, in order to be a supermoon.”


Other Lunar Excitement for 2014


August 10 the full moon will arrive at its closest point to the Earth in 2014. This full moon will be only 221,765 miles away, therefore, it name, a "Supermoon."


April 14 and into the early hours of April 15 there will be a total lunar eclipse. The Waning moon will be completely immersed in the Earth's shadow. Astronomers in North and South America will best be able to view this eclipse, which should last for 75-80 minutes.


April 28 - 29 those who will happen to be in Antarctica will have first row seats for a "Ring of Fire" eclipse. The partial solar eclipse will produce what is known as a "ring of fire" illusion, as the moon blocks out the majority of the sun's light.


October 8 the second total lunar eclipse of the year will occur, visible to the western half of North America, Hawaii, eastern Asia, Indonesia, New Zealand and the eastern half of Australia. Across central and eastern North America the moon will set while entirely covered by Earth's shadow. This eclipse is expected to last one hour.


October 23 the moon's penumbral shadow will cover much of North America and eastern Siberia, producing a partial solar eclipse.
