Super worm equinox Moon event: Biggest Supermoon of 2019

The largest and last supermoon event of 2019.

A rare “super worm equinox moon” will be visible tonight in the Southern Hemisphere.

Tonight’s event is the largest and last supermoon event of 2019.

The supermoon, the Super Worm Moon, lights up the skies from around 8PM local time.

The ‘perigee syzygy’, the scientific name for the super moon, happens rarely – when the moon sits less than 360,000km from Earth.

Very occasionally the moon comes under 360,000km from the Earth.

What’s up with the name?

The word equinox is attributed to perfect timing with the March equinox.

During the equinox, night and day all over the Earth is of equal length. This year is the first time since 1981 that both a full moon and March Equinox appears on the same day.

So whats with the worm part of the name?

In the northern hemisphere, full moons get their name from Native American tribes. The super worm equinox moon coincides with the time of year when earthworms begin to emerge from the thawing winter soil.

Cool, huh?

Go out under her tonight and dissolve the trance that something is missing. You are neither broken, nor whole but weaved of particles of the vast. Love has no bias for whole over broken, unity over multiplicity, or spirit over matter, but will make use of each of equally to open a portal into the mystery. As you rest in the lunar aliveness, allow the veil to part, revealing a fragrance, an image, a feeling, a mood, a sound, a vision to appear. Root into the earth, open to the heavens, sink into the mud. Breathe into the moon and feel her breath as the return message. Allow these to circulate within and around you. While we may continue to play hide and seek—at times seen and at other times concealed—the beloved is always, already inside us. Planting seeds that come to fruit each time we say something kind, hold another who is suffering, and allow ourselves to be crafted as a vessel for love to come here. Though the longing may ache, the cosmic enactment of lost and found is not error but holy, not a mistake but benediction, not evidence that you have failed, but that you have been heard. A theatre of the sacred. At times holding it all together only in the next moment to fall apart yet again. The rotation of the stars as a template for the alchemical rotatio of dream, imagination, fantasy, and play. All alive and moving within you.
