Super New Moon

It’s the New Moon in Taurus today. But it’s not just a normal New Moon, but a Super New Moon instead. A Super Moon is when the Moon is closer to the Earth than normal. We have 4 Super Moons during the year of 2017 and this is the first of them. A New Moon is the perfect time to set your intentions for the upcoming month. Taurus is an earth sign, so gardening, art and money are favored topics of intention.

The Evening Sky 

Even though it’s a New Moon today, the Moon is probably too close to the Sun to be seen tonight, but will be seen tomorrow night instead. We can see a bright Jupiter, high in the sky right after sunset. Mars is getting so close to the Sun that it’s getting quite hard to see and will be disappearing into the glow of the Sun quite soon.
