The Day When The Moon Is Closest To Earth

8 July 2022by Frederick0

The day when the moon is the closest to earth — Wednesday, 13 July 2022.

The full moon in Capricorn will be on 13 July 2022, at 5:38pm (GMT +8). The full moon will be in the 2nd House on the astrological chart and that evening, depending on where you are situated, it will be possible to make out two planets accompanying the full moon. They are Saturn and Jupiter. And because the Moon is transiting over the 2nd House, we can expect matters concerning finances and possessions to be part of the impact of this transit in general.

This full moon is known as the Supermoon, which is a combination of perigee and a full moon, the time interval between which does not go beyond three days. When the moon is at perigee, it is at the point of its orbit as close as possible to the Earth. 

The moon will be at perigee on 13 July 2022 at 8:09am (GMT +8). The distance between Earth and the moon at that time will be 357,263 kilometres, which is by far the closest the moon can get to the Earth. This means that you will be able to see a really big moon on this night, if you’re lucky.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and is affiliated with the 10th House on the astrological chart. Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign symbolising determination, persistence, consistency, conservativeness, achievement, authority, repressed feelings, responsibility and orderliness. The Sun is in Cancer this time around and it will be directly opposite the full moon in Capricorn.

Expect this full moon to be a brief and auspicious time for financial matters. It would be wise to use this period to restructure and make solid plans to your financial issues at hand. Furthermore, it is advisable that you pay close attention to matters concerning your home and career. Try to strike a balance between the two. This full moon in the sign of Capricorn influences us to take responsibility and adopt a sense of duty in our professional life while the Sun in Cancer encourages us to value our time with our loved ones. These are significant responsibilities that will become of greater focus to you during this full moon.

In the effort to moderate the intensity of both home and work, you may have to come into contact with some tension or emotional dealings with the people you love and care for. You might also be feeling restless or tired during this period of time. Get sufficient rest and try not to worry too much about emotional matters or things that are beyond your control. Let this tension pass but at the meantime, avoid unnecessary conflicts.

In addition, the full moon will be in direct opposition to Mercury. Therefore, take this time to be cautious in how you communicate to others, especially to your loved ones. Avoid misunderstandings and focus on the clarity of your message on this day. For some of you, do keep your temper under control and practice compassion. You can maintain proper rapport with others if you choose to stay calm and composed.

As the full moon is also in friendly aspect to Uranus, this is likely to bring about an opportunity for you to explore new unexpected possibilities as you may find yourself more spontaneous on this day. You are likely to be more flexible and remain open to new ideas. Concurrently, the full moon is in challenging aspect to the asteroid Chiron, so you need to take extra precaution to avoid upsetting others as you may be prone to negative reaction towards criticisms about you. Learn from past mistakes and build bridges instead.

The moon will eventually come into conjunction with Pluto on 14 July 2022, at 11:38am (+8 GMT). At the same time, Pluto will also be opposite the Sun with a difference of about 6 degrees. This day and probably the middle of July would be a rather intense period of time for many of us. Secrets and all in the hiding will be made known, truth shall be unveiled, lies shall be exposed and inner desires (or even jealousy) will be coming forth onto the surface. The question is, how are you going to handle it? Intense feelings may come in unexpected ways. If you are internally secure with yourself, you will not have to worry much about these occurrences that will likely take place in your life. Otherwise, you are likely to find yourself overreacting and making matters worse. 

It would be wise if you remain calm and composed during this period of time and not to let any self-destructive behaviours sabotage your future success in whatever you are pursuing or in any relationship you are attempting to build. You may feel as though changes are forced upon you and certain situations in life may become disruptive to your schedules, but take heart that this will pass. Be patient with yourself and be in total control of your emotions. To survive this intense period, embrace change, be moderately assertive yet gentle, avoid manipulative behaviour, and be tolerant and understanding towards others.



This is what the Supermoon in Capricorn has installed for you during this time of the year. Of course, it applies to everybody in general.
