Super Moon has triggered the earthquake in Japan?

Astrology believes that the full moon on March 19, 2011 is likely to cause some major havoc on Earth. This is because the Moon would be at its nearest to the earth, just 2221,567 miles (356,577 kilometers) away. This is said to be lunar perigee.

Moon causes and controls the ocean tides. The Moon's gravity is known to cause certain ebbs and flows on the earth and the tides would be at their maximum levels during full moons and new moons.

When the Earth comes in between the Moon and the Sun certain tectonic activities are found. The recent earthquakes in New Zealand and China and the mild tremors preceding the March 11 earthquake in Japan are found to be a resultant of this. Even before the quake happened there were rumors of something big on the way. Dormant volcanoes and earthquakes are said to be activated in this period.

Hurricane Katrina is one example which happened in 2005 under a Super Moon's influence. January 10, 2005 gave us the 9.0 magnitude earthquake in Indonesia, also under a Super Moon. These are all warnings to look out for a Super Moon.

The effect of tides on seismic activity on the Earth floor is greatest in subduction zones such as the Pacific Area, where one tectonic plate is sliding under another. When there is a low tide, there's less water, so the pressure on the seafloor is smaller. That pressure is clamping the fault together, so when it's not there, it makes it easier for the fault to slip.

But some scientists argue that the moon's gravitational pull at lunar perigee is not different enough from its pull at other times to significantly change the height of the tides and thus the likelihood of natural disasters like earthquakes and tsunamis.

Most natural disasters have something to do with the moon according to Astrology and its principles. It is also that the Earth has a lot of pent up energy, and it releases it anytime the buildup gets too great.

Get ready for some severe and erratic weather patterns, increased seismic activity, tsunamis and more volcanic eruptions than normal. This phenomenon includes the days leading up to March 19 and the days after until around March 22nd.
