The Blue Moon occurs on Friday, 31 July 2015, 06:42 (second Full Moon in single calendar month). Now is the time to set your intentions towards what you desire. The perfect time to plant whatever it is that you want to reap
It is a moon shrouded in mystery, magic and folklore, perhaps because it only appears once every 2.7 years. The very term “blue moon” is over 400 years old when Shakespeare first wrote the words “blue moon” to mean rare or absurd. The rarity of a full moon appearing twice in one month, or a third full moon appearing in an astronomical season with four full moons versus the normal three, must have inspired the great playwright to coin the term.
The term ‘once in a blue Moon’ means that that something is very rare. But just how rare, depends on your definition.
In astronomy, a Blue Moon is a full Moon, which doesn’t quite fit in with the months in our calendar. If the moon actually looks blue, it’s caused by a rare type of dust in the atmosphere. However, there are two completely different ways of calculating which full Moon is a Blue Moon.
Blue Moon: The Full Explanation
Blue Moon = The third full Moon in an astronomical season with 4 full Moons (versus the normal 3)
Blue Moon = The second full Moon in a month with two full Moons.
In modern day terminology, the name Blue Moon accounts for times when there are more full moons than is ordinary.
It is believed the name “blue” was used to replace the no-longer-understood belewe “to betray”. It would have been a “betrayer moon” because in normal years the third full moon meant the beginning of spring whereas a blue moon would have meant another month of fasting.
In some cultures, the blue moon was considered the trickster moon. The faker, not the real full moon, but a mysterious doppelganger. In other cultures the blue moon was considered fortunate, something to celebrate, and a perfect time to start a long-term goal or make plans for the future.
Occasionally you may see a moon that is colored blue. This is because of atmospheric conditions and has nothing to do with a “Blue Moon.
Among the metaphysical or spiritual community a blue moon is a powerful moon. This is usually prime time for rituals ceremonies and protection. It’s also a good time to perform ceremonies to attract a new job, healings, love, legal undertakings, money and dreams.

HEIGHTENED EMOTIONS: Right now the Moon is at its closest approach to Earth all Month. Can you feel it? Have you noticed you are picking on little things for no good reason, having very random thoughts or other people seem to be having a go at you? Be aware that we are being influenced by the cosmic weather. The SUN has also fired off M Class flares in the past 24 hours, which will hopefully miss Earth’s field in a couple of days.
Whenever the surface of the SUN is flaring our own inner environment’s rise in awareness as we slough of the old ways in favor of the new and positive for our life. So if you are a little agitated right now, let it pass without lashing out at someone or something you will later feel sadness over. Stay in your own space over the next 24 hours and contemplate the bigger picture of your life.
So if you are looking to improve your luck or to finish a long-term goal, don’t worry about the ancient superstitions! Instead, focus on this full moon as a lucky one and the beginning of a great new journey for yourself.
