This coming Full Moon early December – called a ‘super moon’ on account of perigree (closest to Earth) which will occur early morning 4 December. As the Angelic Realms – in the messages of Cosmic Sai Baba, Jalarm and Alcheringa – recommend meditation on full moon days, we offer a reflection on this coming “super moon” and the Astrology of this Super Moon.
Super Moon is a new term coined to capture the sense of the moon being larger than normal. A super moon is a new or full moon closely coinciding with perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth in its orbit. People are now calling these events supermoons. The word supermoon was coined by an astrologer over 30 years ago. It was popularised and came to be the accepted term for most people only in the past few years. Are supermoons hype? No, for they can cause real physical effects, such as larger-than-usual tides. The year 2014 had a total of five supermoons. They were the two new moons of January, and the full moons of July, August and September. The next Super moon occurs on December 4 of this year. This will be a Full Moon Night.
The Hierarchy have advised us that the times of the Full Moon are times when energy is magnified, and multiplied. Groups sitting together in meditation on peace, harmony, goodwill towards all have a manifold affect on the energies surrounding our planet when they do this on the Full Moon day. If it is not possible to do so on the actual day, then, we have been told, the day before or the day after will also serve as days of excellence in sending out positive harmony, peace and helpful energies to all places on our Earth.
Meditating on light can raise the level of light within the individual. Meditating on light for our home, Planet Earth, can raise the level of light energy in places where this is needed. For LIGHT can be, as you know when you turn on a light in a room it has different voltages in different countries – in some countries it is brighter – sometimes it is darker. In a way, the Light in each individual on this Earth is the same. Sometimes it is brighter and sometimes it is darker. Such meditation is always of help to others.

Another helpful form of group activity on Full Moon days is calling on the Angels, the Spirit Guides, the Star Beings of the Hierarchy, and the different Divinities – for all are but different forms of the one force field we may call GOD – and calling upon them for help. All prayers are answered; all prayers for the Good of All are responded to. It is well known that Divinity in its different names and forms takes the energies of devotion to God, the prayers, the offerings of Love, Harmony, Peace, Light and distribute this to places where it is needed around the Earth. Such meditations and prayers can also be offered on Full Moon days. Many prayers hail The One, The Lord, The Divine – or God – as a God of Mercy and Compassion. Compassion makes no difference between those who suffer and those who cause that suffering. Compassion is for all and such mercy offered in our prayers and meditation goes out for the Good of the All.
Astrology of the Supermoon
The full moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth, in occupation of opposite signs of the zodiac. As we follow the Vedic (Indian) astrology, then this month’s full Moon is exalted in Taurus, while the Sun (along with Venus) are in the sign of Scorpio. The nakshatras (houses of the moon) involved in this full Moon are Rohini for the Moon and Jyeshtha for the Sun. Rohini is ruled by the Moon itself, – in mythology said to be the favourite”wife” of the Moon and resplendent with energy.
Rohini Nakshatra is ruled by the moon, and creative in nature. It is a fixed nakshatra, and is favourable for planning, sewing, trading, financial activity, marriage and attending to nature. The Deity is Brahma, the Creator, so creative matters – basically rajasic spending of energy with gentility is indicated. Rohini is rajasic in nature and attends to the purushartha – goal of life – by name Moksha. The final things of life. There is nobility, good character, maturity, sobriety, and being well known for one’s good acts in society and culture.
The exalted Full Moon receives aspects from Sun, Venus and Mars. While the Moon has no enemies, the reverse is not so. Sun and Moon are friends, Mars and Moon are friendly planets, and alack, Venus does not like the Moon. At the time of full moon, the lagna – Ascendant – will be in the sign of Leo. This makes Mars and Sun benefic planets, and Venus will cast a malefic glance to Moon. In the compound relations, although Sun is nominally a malefic planet, it is neutral towards the moon; Mars, while friendly to the Moon, casts a malefic aspect in this instance due Leo being the rising sign.
While we note these aspects to the exalted Moon, the world is in a situation of kaala sarpa yoga every 2 weeks and is only rescued when the Moon transits beyond Ketu in Capricorn; there are no other planets residing beyond the Rahu-Ketu Axis; so an important moon which resuscitates our spirits and revives our nature from the tail and the grip of the celestial snake.
The Moon is in the 10th House, highlighting matters in the public domain. As the Moon is the presiding deity of the Mind, then the Mind is attuned to preserving the structures of society and culture, and often relishes legislative-protective roles. Raised in the eye of the public, public behaviour in this sign is typically lawful and orderly, conforming to the customary expectations of the ethnicity (culture).

In the ninth division (D9) of the horoscope – at the time of this full moon – we find that the Moon is in the 9th House of religion and philosophy. It is a time of bringing the mind and ego under the control of self-discipline and pursuing spiritual goals. This supports setting aside time for meditation, offered for the Good of the All. This is the beginning of our path home to world harmony, cooperation, understanding and peace.
In the twentieth division (D20) of the horoscope for this Full Moon, the Moon is again in the 9th House aspected by Jupiter (by 9th drishti) a very, very spiritual and benefic aspect. Spiritual pursuits are fully supported by planet Jupiter, and it could well be a time of significant intuition and self-understanding. The flip side for those who do not meditate is deep and powerful dreams populated by archetypal symbols. The Sun and Mercury are conjunct the Moon in the 9th house indicating that the mind will be receptive to spiritual advance and spiritual messages.
