A few days ago I received a link to an article posted by Kit Karson, a renowned psychic, concerning a phenomenon known as ‘Super-Moon’. She predicted the possibility for “extreme” weather, earthquakes, tsunamis, natural disasters, even some sort of major economic shock. Overnight, Japan was hit with an 8.9 earthquake, the 5th largest ever recorded on Earth! Tsunami warnings have been posted for practically the entire Pacific Ocean basin. Strong aftershocks continue in Japan, where the devastation is unbelievable. A few days ago, they were hit with a 7.4 magnitude earthquake. With the ‘Super-Moon’ peak period still to come, between March 19-22, what else can we expect?
The term ‘Super-Moon’ was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle. According to Kit, whom you may recall I interviewed at the end of last year for a piece on what we could expect in 2011, Nolle claims that this particular Super-Moon period could be especially nasty. A Super-Moon is basically when a full-moon occurs at the same time the Moon is closest to the Earth. This month′s may be very bad as the Moon is closer than it has been for the past 18 years.
According to Kit’s article, the Earth suffered from extreme weather during previous Super-Moon periods in 1955, 1974, 1992 and 2005. Hurricane Katrina struck the New Orleans area during a Super-Moon. 2005 was a double-Super-Moon year, with an earlier peak period in early January. The 9.0 magnitude earthquake, and subsequent tsunami that hit Indonesia was on January 10th, right during the Super-Moon peak phase.
Richard Nolle believes that this March could be extra powerful, due to the close orbit. He even extends the potential influence period into April. Whats even worse is that 2011 will have 3 Super-Moon periods this year! We already had one last month in early February. I′ll tell you, I had a lousy February! I have to wonder if this cosmic event played any role in all of the Middle East uprisings? As it is, I was expecting big trouble today in Saudi Arabia with mass demonstrations planned for a ‘Day of Rage’. Yesterday, Saudi police and military forces broke up several demonstrations, resulting in some injuries.
Kit is predicting potential economic disruptions during this March Super-Moon period. Oil supply shortages or higher prices. Well, we′ve certainly seen oil prices rise! She says “Stock markets may also be in for a wild ride.” Yesterday, the Dow suffered another major sell-off, dipping below the 12,000 mark. Markets from Asia to Europe also took big hits. Kit is also predicting “Main power outages may occur, especially if they hit densely populated areas.” Oh-oh!
Now, mind you, this phenomenon of the Super-Moon is not just some goofy astrological thing. Although it would seem that only astrologers and psychics are paying any attention to it! There is credible science to support the Super-Moon. Gravitational effects from the Moon do indeed have an influence on the Earth. Not only with tides, but on the planet′s crust as well. Remember, for the most part, we are living on tectonic plates which float on seas of hot, molten magma. Such magma may be more dense than water, but it still a fluid, and subject to being affected by the Moon’s gravity. In terms of influence on human behavior, just visit any police station or hospital emergency room during a full-Moon period. Statistics show that there is a connection between a full Moon and an increase in health issues, accidents and violence. A Super-Moon period could certainly spike such incidents.
The 8.9 magnitude earthquake which has rocked Japan could very well be the result of the current Super-Moon event. With the peak period between March 19-22, I hate to say it, but the worst may not be over yet! Psychic Kit Karson is predicting a variety of potential natural disasters. Astrologer Richard Nolle, who coined the term Super-Moon, says that this particular period, with the Moon being extra close to planet Earth as it reaches perigee, could extend the term of influence well into the month of April. 2011 is an unusual year, with 3 Super-Moon periods! When is the next one one? April 18-20 is the next one! Three consecutive months of Super-Moons! How much stress can Mother Earth take?
Will March 19 ′Supermoon′ Trigger Natural Disasters? I would say the answer to that question is YES!!!
