The Lunar Perigee ( when the Moon is closest to earth ) is called Supermoon and is believed to cause earthquakes and natural disasters.
That Moon causes tides is well known and Supermoon may affect tides.
On Mar 19, the Moon will be 221,567 miles from earth, the nearest point in 20 years.
There were Superomoons in 55,74,92 and 2005 and these years were characterised by extreme weather conditions.
Weatherman John Kettley said about the phenomenon on Mar 19th."A moon can't cause a geological event like an earthquake, but it will cause a difference to the tide. If that combines with certain weather conditions, then that could cause a few problems for coastal areas."
Astrologically, Sun will be at 334 degrees and Moon at 143 degrees.
As a remedial measure, the mantra of the Moon Om Saum Somaya Namah can be chanted. Also the Gayatri mantra, as natural calamities affect the psyche of universal humanity !
Om Bhoo Bhuvah Swah
That savithur varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi
Dhiyo yo no prachodayath
