Full Moon Weather

Wondering why it’s so hot this week? Read on.

Just as the moon pulls the tides as it makes its way through the sky, it also tugs at the air. Any knowledgable pilot knows to avoid takeoff while the moon is rising or setting; there is less atmosphere to assist with lift. An image from www.spiritualresearchfoundation.org displays this effect very clearly…


When the moon is new, it rises and sets with the sun. Its effect is minimized as it is overpowered by the sun’s force. However, during a night moon, the moon rises just as the sun sets and blankets all of the warmth from the day. Whether in summer or the dead of winter, those unusually warm days are always near the full moon. Full moon weather is more predictable than you’d think.

The moon will be full this Sunday night and will exact around 11:35pm. This coincides with Mercury leaving Sagittarius for Capricorn. Anything is better than Sagittarius at this point. (Mercury is in its detriment in Sagittarius and has been banged around back and forth for months now with its retrograde, etc.) Good time to get rid of any old garbage, both mentally and emotionally, for the new year!
