Everything There is to Know About the Final Supermoon: The Strawberry Moon
Supermoons are a three-four times a year occurrence with extreme radiance due to this lunar phase harmonizing with its nearest elliptical orbit of Earth. Rephrased: hundreds of thousands across the United States are eager to watch this grand moon rise as it closes in on Earth at 224, 662 miles. A full moon must be closer than the averaged 226,000 miles to be considered “super,” with the closest Supermoon in this trio being the MayFlower Supermoon at a distance of 222,116.6 miles.
You may be thinking, “Okay, well why should I care?” The answer is debatable, “I don’t know,” but our ancestors have been worshipping the moon since the dawn of time for its connection to universal and mortal rhythms. The moon’s natural energy force is immensely powerful, with Greeks and Romans; Pagans and Witches; Aztecs and Mayans all believing in its death, rebirth, and healing properties. This must mean something, right? The final phase of the moon and its transition into a new moon is known as a cosmic sign in which energy peaks before releasing. It is strongly associated with the fourth chakra: the heart. Just as the full moon gives way to new, so does the heart, finding forgiveness and kindness during this significant time. This is the perfect time to let go of what no longer serves you.
The strength of the moon’s vibrations are amplified through Supermoons creating an inescapable intensity ranging from loss of sleep to attitude adjustments. This moon is by far the most fascinating of the 2021 Supermoons; the moon to pay attention to. It is the final in the trio of Supermoons beginning in April with the Pink Moon and preceded by the Flower Moon in May. The moon reaches its peak at 2:40 p.m. Est. and hangs low in the sky until 8:55 p.m.
