Wednesday 13th June @ 20:43 is the New Moon and it's another Supermoon also known as a Perigean New Moon. It's the first of a trilogy of New Moon Supermoons occuring due to the New Moon closely pairing up with perigee on 13th June, 13th July and 11th August. More at Earthsky.org
It will be at it's brightest at 20:43 UK time and coming shortly before the moon reaches lunar perigee (see note below) at 23:56on the 14th June, it will be the first New Moon Supermoon of 2018 (the July one is closer and brighter). Perigee timings are given at Lunarplanner.com
A Supermoon is when the moon appears larger in the sky because it is reaches the closest proximity to Earth (known as the perigee*) coinciding with the New Moon or Full Moon. Since the New Moon is only a sliver to the naked eye, the Full Moon Supermoons are much more of a visual treat, when the moon may appear up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than on any other Full Moon occasion. Although it may not seem all that noticeable to us and of course it will depend on good clear viewing conditions; however due to an optical illusion, it will always look bigger and more luminous when closer to the horizon.
*The moon orbits around the Earth in an ellipse which takes just over 29 days, meaning that it reaches points in the year when it is at its closest (perigee, when it is about 363,000 km away) and furthest (apogee, when it is about 405,500 KM) from our planet. Those old enough might be reminded of Bed Knobs and Broomsticks when Angela Lansbury mentions the perigee and apogee in one of her invocations!
This Supermoon in Gemini will be the start of an emotionally intense period which will last through to the third consecutive New Moon Supermoon in August. New Moons always signify the start of a new cycle, this one marks the winding down of a cycle which began with the January eclipse and will finish with the July eclipse.
According to Elephantjournal.com, whereas New Moon energy usually last a few days, this intense, life-changing energy of this New Moon trio will remain for the full two month period. Those sensitive to energies will feel the heightened charge as extremes of moods, with some sudden unexpected swings. Because Gemini is ruled by Mercury, communications will be intensified, making it advisable to speak carefully to minimise any misunderstandings. Mercury also influences travel plans, vehicles, buying/selling, negotiation, teaching and learning, agreements and contracts.
The zodiac sign of Gemini - represented by twins - signifies duality and adaptability through the conscious and subconscious mind. It's a good time for clearing blockages by moving suppressed thoughts and emotions from the subconscious so they can be released. There is a simple and helpful exercise at foreverconscious.com
