Most of us Pagans have been bombarded by 'supermoon' info - that the full moon yesterday/today is the closest to earth (by 10% or so) and brightest (by 30%) in 19 years.
Many Pagans on Facebook and Twitter are reporting feeling the energy quite clearly.
Which all makes me wonder - what of the Super DARK Moon? Was the last dark moon, or will the next dark moon, or some other moon, be the closest DARK moon to Earth in
It sure wouldn't be peaceful! But, oddly, at least one person has noted that the energy of THIS is peaceful.
Huh? If full moon is about fertility, especially when combined with Eostre and spring equiniox ... fertility is total chaos, when looked at in sexual reproduction. Scores of sperms (or the equivalent from pollen) putting forth all sorts of energy towards hitting that ovum. Or all those ova, if we have spawning in water. Mate or die. Well, mate AND die, but your genes go on, even tho' you may die just from the exertion involved in being successfully fertile.
I'd say that if this moon doesn't go all the way to chaos, it certainly is about Madness. Isn't the worship of Dionysis around now? Bacchanalia, baby! Maenads tearing up animals alive and eating their still quivering flesh.
Peaceful super moon, my pasty white ass.
