Spring Tides and Other Spring Phenomenon

Tide gazing is an actual activity. During Spring Tide Season – when there is a HIGH tide it means that the Sun, Moon, and Earth are in alignment and the gravitational force is strong.

In the U.K. the tide still changes every six (6) hours in Spring, but during the Spring season the tides are higher at high tide and lower at low tide.

Tides are altered just after a full or new moon – as this is when there is the greatest difference between low and high tides – these are Spring tides.

The average HIGH tide height at London Bridge is 6.5m. Around the coast of England, the tide heights differ based on the coastline or bathymetry (water depth).

What does this mean for the average person? Gravitational pulls are strong and planets are in alignment – sometimes these magnetic pulls can impact our emotions, our brain waves, our relationships, . . .  take them all in measure – you may feel pulled in one direction or another – you may feel incredibly high or incredibly low. 

May is known as a time of replenishment, rejuvenation, renewal, new growth and gardening!
