We only have one Supermoon in 2017 and it falls on Sunday 3rd December at 3.46pm in London (adjust for your city). The Sun will be at 11 Sagittarius opposite the Moon at 11 Gemini. It’s a Full Moon and it will appear bigger and brighter than any Full Moon you see this year. It has a message for you. A message about the end of the tough Saturn in Sagittarius cycle. On the same day, Mercury stations retrograde at 29 Sagittarius. You can underline that message, now. This Supermoon is going to feel like the exclamation mark before the end of a book, and what a long book it’s been – especially if you have Sagittarius chart factors.
ALL ABOUT THE DECEMBER SUPERMOON
The word Supermoon was coined by astrologer and my Twitter amigo, Richard Nolle in 1979 in an article for Horoscope magazine. NASA says: “The term supermoon has entered popular consciousness in recent years. Originally a term from modern astrology for a new or full moon that occurs when the moon is within 90% of its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit, supermoon now refers more broadly to a full moon that is closer to Earth than average.”
This Full Moon in December, because it’s so close to us, should look about 7% bigger than a regular Full Moon. Seasky has more information: This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Cold Moon because this is the time of year when the cold winter air settles in and the nights become long and dark.
THE END OF SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS
Saturn (challenges, tests, waiting games, obstacles, lessons) moved into Sagittarius (the sign ruling foreign people and places, travel and immigration) on September 19th 2015 and will not depart until December 20th, 2017. Thus, the Supermoon is the end of a long story. A Full Moon is always D-Day. A moment of truth. The point of no return. This particular D-Day, for the world, will be about the way we relate to each other across national, cultural, religious and language borders – or the way that we usually don’t! You can read more about predictions I made about Saturn in Sagittarius here, back on 13th May 2015.
You might say that the Supermoon tells us, it’s time to kiss this cycle goodbye. And that’s going to be a relief for so many of us. It will be a delayed kiss, because Mercury Retrograde means this isn’t entirely over – not yet – but the general intention and emotion will be there, even if the final details take a while to sort themselves out.
On the world stage this is likely to be a dramatic time for international relations, questions about borders, passports, residency and so on. We only have one Saturn in Sagittarius cycle every 29 years and this Supermoon is a very loud kiss-off!

What if You Have Sagittarius Chart Factors?
Because you express yourself so much through your journeys, your study or teaching commitments, your use of the worldwide web, your interest in books – and people from other cultures or countries – you are most strongly affected by the big, bright December Supermoon. In general, by the time you reach December 2017 you will feel as if you have been on an epic trek through these areas of your life. The Full Moon/Supermoon will bring one issue to a head. You will have to choose, or act. Doing so will help to finish the cycle for you, although note – because Mercury Retrograde is at large, there may be a sense of unfinished business, despite the apparent ‘finished’ business – and you need to allow for that in the weeks to follow. Typical examples of this might include rescheduling, retraction, reversal and all the other ‘re’ words we associate with Mercury Retrograde!
