As we all take to the rooftops tonight, gazing anxiously through the clouds to see the supermoon at its closest point to the Earth in 69 years, what will be going through your mind?
Will it be the question of the windchill factor up there? or whether the silvery rays of light will help you get lucky tonight?
Are you looking out for The Man In The Moon? Maybe getting hungry for green cheese?
Will you be bearing in mind that in the Middle Ages, the moon was said to to rule drunkards, and acting accordingly?
(Which I will come to later, with a transparent Moonbeam cocktail)
– will you be deciding that it’s a marvellous night for a Moondance?
Or perhaps just indulging in that most lunar of pastimes, a little lycanthropy?
As long as we can keep it together, because it’s all good fun until somebody loses an eye – I am a selfish person, so I will be trying to establish what effect this megamoon will be having on me personally.
This particular moon is in the house of Taurus, which is terrific news, as Taurus is an especially auspicious and positive sign of the zodiac.
Let’s take a look, shall we, at what this supermoon signifies for YOU?
Read on for the full breakdown……
Aries (March 21–April 19)
This is a good time for you to pursue a side project you’ve been neglecting. You are very close to Taurus in the Zodiac, and you can draw on power from this moon easily. Try to avoid direct confrontations during this lunar phase.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is your time of personal influence, so use it to further your career, your romantic life, your finances – this is a time when you can move forward by leaps and bounds!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Taurus will support you at this time, but not push you forward. You must feel the strength at your back and make the final push yourself, otherwise you may become frustrated.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This is an important time for you to focus on your home, and keeping people close around you, which is where you will find your best support and opportunities during this cycle. This should be a secure time for you. Try to avoid giving into extreme moods.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leo’s endless quest for attention, success and fame can be encouraged at this time as Taurus brings an element of financial support during this time. This is a good time for you to spend time with family, and don’t embark on new projects if you have some you have yet to develop.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
This is a time for both male and female Virgos to take romantic chances and focus on the physical aspects of love or affection. You can benefit from the earthy sexuality of Taurus and let go more than you usually would. Let yourself unwind!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
This can be an overwhelming time for Libra people, as they don’t as a rule mesh well with Taurus. Try to concentrate on your daily routine, and doing small things things perfectly. This will calm you, and your spirits will rise soon. Get plenty of sleep.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpio sits opposite Taurus in the zodiac. This is a time of perfect balance for Scorpio, when your fixity of purpose and fluid outlook will bring you success during this moon phase. This is a very appropriate time for you to find romance.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Try to avoid superficial pursuits during this time, as they do not jibe well with serious Taurus traits. Focus on work, and try reading classics of literature or watching documentaries in your spare time, as this will help stimulate your brain and help you formulate new and different plans for the future.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorn and Taurus are both earth signs, so this is a good luck time for you. You will find this a favourable time to make improvements to your home, even if they are little things, and discover that you feel relaxed and satisfied as a result.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
This is a time when you will find it wise to slow down. Don’t rush off half-cocked. Try to consider your actions before you start, imagining what the consequences might be for you or others. Keep a steady pace.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
This is a time of freedom and safety for you. Taurus almost overshadows you with his powerful support, so enjoy yourselves and see as many people as you are able to. This is a perfect time for you to socialize.
For saluting the moon tonight, a clear concoction of Pisco grape brandy, Prosecco, and just a whisper of Curaçao. Use moon-infused ingredients when possible.
1 shot of Pisco
Dash of Curaçao
Prosecco according to how large a glass you are using. I would recommend a larger size of glass for this, as it is potent indeed.
Rinse the glass out with Curaçao, just as you would perform an absinthe rinse. Add the Pisco then top up with Prosecco, served in a chilled glass with a swizzle stick for mixing.
This transparent bubbly bomb should be sipped under the rays of the moon, so that it may be infused with the moon’s powers of psychic powers, mystery, balance, intuition and fertility.
