EarthSky lunar calendars are cool! They make great gifts. Order now. Going fast! Who are the commentators, and what do they say? The International Astronomical Union IAU is the group generally recognized for naming and defining things in astronomy. But the IAU has been, so far, silent on the subject of supermoons, which professional astronomers tend to call perigean full moons. Meanwhile, Fred Espenak, the go-to astronomer on all things related to lunar and solar eclipses Mr.
We might also consider the astrologer Richard Nolle. Whatever your thoughts or feelings are on astrology, Nolle is, after all, the person who coined the term supermoon. The term supermoon, as defined by Nolle, comes with some ambiguity.

Astrophysicist Fred Espenak, aka Mr. Eclipse — a year NASA veteran and world-renowned expert on eclipses — says the January 12, , full moon is a supermoon in his post Moon in We refer you to two different supermoon tables for the 21st century to Why are their lists different?
It all goes back to the definition of the word supermoon. Supermoons are based on lunar perigee and apogee.
In , it is possible to get professional recognition, and even to earn a great amount of money. If you have specific projects, find the necessary investors to put them in practice. In the second part of the year, you can expect big expenses. Our advice is to listen to your intuition. The beginning of the year brings some health issues caused, on one hand, by the stress you are exposed to and, on the other hand, by poor diet. This year, health should be the main concern for the Capricorn natives.
You are encountering problems because of a sickness that has been affecting you for a long time. In astrology, Jupiter — Saturn is the main planetary cycle used for studying the historical periods.
The conjunction between these two happens once at every 20 years and it has a strong founding character, describing the beginning of a new political, economic, and cultural era. This conjunction takes place in Aquarius. On December 14th , there is a total Sun Eclipse.
The eclipse is going to be visible in the Pacific Ocean and in the southern part of North America. Capricorns may resume their studies and orientate towards other domains of interest. For more detail about how it affects your natal chart see Moon Transits. Sorry, not intending to hog your post Jamie, so the eclipse is the day before the full moon? My moon phases from Perth observatory have the full moon here as the evening of the 12th, so just checking.
Here in the U. S it appears on the evening of the 10th, but there is a significant time difference between here and Australia, so perhaps it is on the 12th there. Hi Jamie, just a quickie question. I have a stellium of north node, jupiter and pluto in Leo in the 10th natally. This eclipse at 23 is 3 degrees shy of my progressed Jupiter in Leo at Is that too wide an orb and is it positive in the 11th?
Im still learning all this…Can someone help me figure out how will this Lunar eclipse affect me? Thanks this is a fascinating and hope-boosting article! It certainly feels intense in my life at the moment… mask vs rebellion, peace vs truth, fear vs risk… all tied to just wanting to be realistic about being myself in a sustainable, self-sufficient way.
My boyfriend at the time said he got the fear. The first one squared his Venus exactly… so if I can enjoy a less challenging patch in relationships I would welcome that immensely. Hi Jamie, great article.
Natally, i have Uranus at 21deg libra, opposite tr Uranus. Would this affect my sun at 22deg Virgo? Make a yod with transit Uranus Aries and sun in Aquarius? Chiron in Pisces maybe makes a boomerang yod, being opposite my sun as the apex? I feel that the saros series energy is more relevant than aspect pattern. This makes no sense at all whatsoever.
I think you must have barfed on your keyboard. What a waste of time reading this bullshit. As someone who professes to be the authority you do in the way you do, affecting the minds of others, I would suggest a good long honest look at yourself while this full moon is in full force Kesley, for your own sake as well as others.
Still, I just felt compelled to offer, and you are free to choose to ignore and write me off as stupid too, it really is of no consequence to me, that is your choice not mine, your choice your responsibility your consequence, hoping you choose wisely. But then I dont know her, may be she is ok with that representation.
Thank you Jaime for all your insight I learn a lot about astrology reading your blog… my birthday is today February 10th; I was born in Sag rising but I was wondering how with this lunar eclipse affect somebody born on this day? Bad luck and stressful, just so confused? So I found out the morning of February 12th that my SO was having an affair.
He ended it the day before on February 11th. This has been one of the most difficult weeks of my life, but it has not been without hope. We have had poor communication for a long time and have two young children that have gotten the most of our attentions. Interestingly, the eclipse falls just one degree away from his ascendant and our marriage chart has an ascendant of Capricorn 21 and Moon Capricorn
