December 3rd will mark the “Full Cold Moon” which also happens to be a supermoon. For those who do not know supermoon happen when a full moon coincides with the moon’s perigee.

The supermoon will appear to be at least 14 percent larger and up to 30 percent brighter than it normally is. This is because it the moon itself is much closer to the Earth than it normally would be. Supermoons do not happen every month because the moon’s orbit changes as the Earth travels around the sun.

According to Time and Date:

Supermoons during Northern Hemisphere winter months tend to look larger than supermoons that occur during the rest of the year. At this time of the year, Earth is closer to the Sun. Because of this, the Sun’s gravity pulls the Moon closer to Earth, making any winter Super Full Moons look bigger than summer Super Full Moons.

It seems the best time to really take in a supermoon is after moonrise. This is when the Moon is just above the horizon. That being as long as the weather is clear. In this position, the moon will be seen best. The Full Cold Moon for those who were wondering according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac was the name given to the full moon in December because of as you most likely assumed the cold weather.

This full moon will be in Gemini which means we will be met with a good bit of what I like to refer to as trickster energy. Mercury will also be going onto retrograde at this time which is going to make things a bit more intense. That being said, there will be a strong sense of mental balance coming our way as well. If you have been struggling to bring to life your emotions that struggle will soon be over.

I suggest spending time tuning into your higher self and really letting your intuition run as it wants. All of your frustrations will be playing out before you but if you are ready and accept these things as they happen this process will go smoothly. For more on this please check out the video below. There is a lot to learn from this supermoon, while it is a beautiful phenomenon it is also very important for us as human beings to grow.
