Blessed Be Everyone!
This 19th March 2011, i.e. Saturday, Moon would be closest to the Earth and this phenomenon is called "Lunar Perigee" or as popularly used in astrology "Super Moon". Those who can see this celestial treat, please do not miss it. This Lunar Phase happens ONCE in 19 years.
Why am I so interested in it? Well, for the first, I love moon. And Second, it's scary about what people are talking about relating to this Lunar Perigee. They say that this Super Moon is going to cause destruction across the Earth. Given any other moment, I'd have brushed off this information as dirt. But my Skepticism has kicked in and I want to know All about it. So here's what my logic tells me:
- Since the moon is closest to earth, it is likely to raise the height of tidal waves across the water bodies;
- Very much likely that tsunamis and floods may occur;
- Earthquakes? Science says that unless the disaster happens on the very same day of the occurring of the Super Moon, it cannot be blamed;
- Mostly these disasters are scattered all across the calender, so why are we hell bent on associating every disaster with Super Moon?

Believing something is not wrong and Super Moon plays a very important role in Astrology and such sciences, but being scared of it, creating panic and havoc across the world, when a piece of it (Read Japan) is already in trouble is not so cool.
I want all my Open Minded Curious and Lovely readers to watch this moon and remember this sight for the next 19 years (Unless you believe that the world is going to end in 2012 :| ), it is going to be unforgettable. I am going to definitely watch it.
Till then, let us breathe and live every moment that has been given to us, with Love, Light and Harmony.
