Will March 19 ‘supermoon’ trigger disasters?
At least one astrologer thinks quakes, eruptions and huge storms possible

On March 19, the moon will swing around Earth more closely than it has in the past 18 years, lighting up the night sky from just 221,567 miles away. On top of that, it will be full. And one astrologer believes it could inflict massive damage on the planet.
Richard Nolle, a noted astrologer who runs the website astropro.com, has famously termed the upcoming full moon at lunar perigee (the closest approach during its orbit) an “extreme supermoon.” read more…
The EXTREME SUPERMOON will be 100% full Mar 19, 11:10 A.M. Las Vegas time.
“American Indians gave names to each of the full moons to keep track of the passing year. The names are associated with the entire month until the next full moon occurs. Since a lunar month averages 29 days, the dates of the moons change from year to year. Here are titles most closely associated with calendar months” – more from Western Washington University…
Algonquin (Northeast to Great Lakes) word for March’s full Moon, according to WWU is: “namossack kesos” or “catching fish.”
Hopi (Southwest Arizona) term for March’s full Moon, according to WWU is: “osomuyaw” or “moon of the whispering wind.” I personally love this phrase. BC
From The Old Farmer’s Almanac
Historically, the Native Americans who lived in the area that is now the northern and eastern United States kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to the recurring full Moons.
Each full Moon name was applied to the entire month in which it occurred. These names, and some variations, were used by the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior.
According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the name for March’s full Moon is: Full Worm Moon. At the time of this spring Moon, the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins – no Native word is given.
