This Full Moon is literally a big one, as astrologer Lynn Hayes discusses, because the Moon is currently at perigee, meaning it is at its closest orbit to Earth. It is therefore at its highest point in the sky, and looks bigger than any other Full Moon we’ve seen in 2008.
Plus, she tells us, “This Full Moon is packed with energy, both mental and physical. Everything within our heart, soul and psyche is moving faster than usual during this Full Moon, and becoming conscious of the need for balance between the internal process and the external drives will help us to get the most out of this lunation.”
