Great post S&F thank you W1LL.
I am not sure why people (ridicule) astrologers. Astrology is the oldest science known to mankind.
Sometimes people forget about the concept of what we call science, science is all about (observations + making notes and passing over the new found data to the newer generations) and astrology is all about OBSERVATIONS.
Thanks again mate.

I don't know what that recurring oscillation at the bottom of your chart is -- High tides, maybe?

But, seriously, the Super Moon or any Full or New Moon for that matter is not like a light switch. As those events come nearer we can feel the effects, the energy culminates on the day of the event and then after the event the energy dissapates. To outright dismiss the influence as "preposterous" is preposterous.
Add that to the fact that the moon's current distance is much greater than the distances of the moon at perigee in previous months, and I have to ask: even if there seems to be a correlation, what is the cause of that correlation? Because there is nothing to suggest that the current position of the moon is anything the Earth has not experienced even just in the past few months.
Maybe a waxing quarter Moon midway between apogee and perigee is what causes bigger earthquakes?

the article states that hurricane katrina made landfall on Aug 29 2005. 10 days after the moons perigee.
The storm obviously did not manifest on the day it made landfall so the 10 days before the storm hit while it was gathering power out in the ocean the moon could have had a large unnoticed effect... not only that the effects are felt over a period of time the perigee is just a name we use for an extreme measurement of how close the moon is, however the moons effects are always felts and what I feel effects the earth more than just the perigee or apogee is the in-between when the moon is coming and going.
as i stated above I dont think the moon is a harbinger of doom, I just think mainstream science if overlooking the fact that the moon has a great effect on our earth more than just our water. nothing in our earth cycles is cut and dry (hence my elliptical of life metaphor in my OP), our moon has a apogee and perigee it affects us over time like the torque and stress from tectonic plates causes earthquakes.
From my OP
the Perigee may be when the moon is at its closest but the affects of it moving towards and away from the earth might have an effect from the evidence in bold.

Yes, there is science and research. from my OP.
Recent Earthquakes linked to Solar Effects on Earth’s Magnetic Field

some more good reading
How the Moon can affect earths Temp.
The Moon Effect Called the Greenhouse Effect on Earth
interesting quote from above article.
a super moon as the article sensationally calls the moons perigee, is because the moons perigee will be the closest it has been in 20yrs they call it a super moon. the moon still has a cycle of perigee and apogee it s just not as close...

CLPrime great work, I will U2U soon to collaborate on some info hopefully make it easier on the brain I know exactly what you're going through, Information OVERLOAD which is probably why most scientist done get into this subject like they should.

By the way, I didn't even stop thinking while I was on that "break". It occurred to me that this recent chain of quakes, that spans both sides of the Pacific, began around the New Moon, when the moon and the sun were aligned with the earth. It might certainly be wise to be cautious on the 19th, because of the fact that it's both the perigee AND the Full Moon, when the 3 are in alignment again.edit on 12-3-2011 by CLPrime because: (no reason given)
