May 03-2012: It’s here: Supermoon Saturday. The Dragon Moon rises, bringing with it Draconian events.
As most survivors here know, a “supermoon” occurs when the moon’s perigee, that is when it swings closest to the earth, coincides with a full or new moon phase, resulting in a full moon that is about 12% bigger than average.
Supermoons have been identified as cosmic contributers to numerous global events and disasters, including recently, the sinking of the Titanic. The theory holds that an extra-strength supermoon tide caused a fleet of icebergs to break loose unexpectedly, including the one that sunk Titanic.
Astronomers are downplaying tonight’s celestial event, saying this year’s supermoon will be much smaller and less dramatic than the most famous March 19, 2011 supermoon that brought: an earthquake, a tsunami and a volcano along with a minor plague of lepre-weres and were-prechauns.
However, these astronomers are missing one very important fact – this Supermoon falls on the Dragon Moon. In fact, it falls on the Dragon Moon, in the Year of the Dragon. That’s a lot of dragons. Coincidence?
Well yes. No. Maybe. Partly. But just because it’s a cosmic coincidence, doesn’t mean it won’t be epic. Dragons already out of their caves in searching for treasure and trouble will be out in full force.
One thing is sure, there will be two new Survivors of the Month. This month honors go to two survivors: one Survivor of the Month and one Hall of Fame Survivor. I’ll be posting clues about their identities all night long and then as agreed, reveal them tomorrow in order to not distract anyone from their full moon survival plan.
If you figure it out you can leave hints but please don’t give it away!
Remember Survivors of the Month are picked in a semi-random way. We just total up helpful comments and put them into the Hat App, then spin the wheel. If it’s not you this month, please just keep on keeping on. Prizes are miniscule and survival is always a win!
