Blue Moon July 31, 2015

blue-moon-and-wolf HOWLThe 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

Two definitions

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. For those of you wanting to do something special for the Blue Moon I recommend you try the Burning Bowl Ceremony. See The Video Below.

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.

A blue moon is rare and if you are finding yourself at a crossroads in life, now would be the perfect time to get spiritual advice to help you on your path. Visit my website to find out more about my special services.

Super Moon January 30, 2014-Chinese New Year January 31, 2014

black moon
On January 30, we shall have a Super Moon. The moon will be at it’s closest to the Earth in its elliptical orbit. The moon will be compelling, at its largest and brightest. Tides will be high and for some, magic strong and blood pulsing. Think on moon madness and magic, old goddesses and night’s mysteries, for even as science tries to define, our very language defies, and renews wonder. Look up and wonder.

This Thursday (1/30/2014) is a Blue Moon- the second New Moon in less than 30 days for January 2014. Next month February there will not be a New Moon so make the most of this one. (March 1, 2014 will be another New Moon when Mercury goes retrograde)

Blue Moons carry with them special energy for magic, mayhem and manifestations. New Moons are a good time to pray for new starts and new beginnings. This Blue Moon in the sign of Aquarius which is an air sign and rules our minds and thoughts, innovations and inventions, computers and electronics, friends and enemies, and occult sciences and telepathy.

2014-woodhorse (1)

January 31 is the Chinese New Year. This is the year of the Wood Horse. Horse symbolizes nobility, strength and grace in motion. Perhaps, Horse will bless us in 2014, with upward movement into a higher level of consciousness.

Use the energy of this Electric Blue, Aquarian New Moon and the Chinese New Year of The Horse to set something new in motion; small or large, do something different, something provocative, something original, something fun!

Blue Moon August 20, 2013

Blue-Moon-and-Wolf
Tomorrow night, 20/08/13 will see a “Blue Moon”. This does not mean the Moon itself will be blue but rather that it is the third of four full moons in a single season. There are different definitions for Blue Moon. The first and most popular is the second full moon in a calendar month. (This belief came about in a misquoted edition of the July 1943 issue of “Sky & Telescope magazine, written by Lawrence J. Lafleur)

The second and more correct definition is a Blue Moon is the third moon of four in a season– a season being defined as the time period between a solstice and an equinox, or vice versa. Tuesday night’s moon will be a Blue Moon by the seasonal definition, that is, the second definition. This years winter season was between the June 2013 solstice and September equinox. The last seasonal Blue Moon happened on November 21, 2010.

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.

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.

The term “once in a blue moon” mean something rare.

Once in a Blue Moon August 31, 2012

A Blue Moon will be present for all to see on Friday, August 31, 2012. Don’t miss this one, because you’ll not get another one for almost three years.

The Moon will become a full moon at 9:58 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), or 1358 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) on August 31st.

This “second full moon in one month”, or so called the Blue Moon, will not occur again until July 2015. Blue moons exist due to our calendar months being imperfectly synched to the lunar months. It takes 29.5 days for the moon to orbit Earth, during which sky watchers observe all of its phases. All calendar months, aside from February, have 30 or 31 days, resulting in the occasional two full moons within a single month.

But, don’t be disappointed if you don’t actually see a “blue” colored Moon. The term Blue Moon is named so because it is relatively rare (on average just once every 2.7 years). That is, it’s only seen “once in a blue moon.” On average, about 27 Blue Moons occur in any given century. So far, in the twenty-first century, we’ve had five of them.

However, what is rare is a bluish colored Blue Moon. It only occurs when something like a volcanic eruption or a forest fire causes the atmosphere to make the Moon appear to be a little bluish.

Native Americans drew constellations, created star lore, and built structures in alignment with the sky long before Europeans arrived on American shores.

Like other groups, they tracked the motions of the Sun to help them decide when to plant crops, move their camps, or stage sacred rituals.

Their stories contained explanations of the constellations they saw as patterns of bright stars, meteor showers, the Northern Lights, and saw in what we call the Milky Way a pathway to the afterlife.

Some tribes built great circles of stones to help them predict the changing seasons, or ceremonial sites and mounds of earth in alignment with the Sun and stars and to reflect the patterns they saw in the heavens.

In any case, go outside and watch the Moon be Full and be a Blue Moon on Friday. This is a powerful time to say prayers for everyone. Hopefully you’ll have a clear night sky over your locality on Earth.

Neil Armstrong family statement “Next time you walk outside on clear night & see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil & give him a wink.”

What is unique about August 2012 Full Moon?

August 2012 will feature not 1 but 2 full moons.

The full moon occurs once every 29.5 days. This essentially means that there is one full moon every month. However, as we know, every month but February has at least 30 days in it, which presents the potential for two full moons in a month.

August 2012 – is one of these unique months, which will have two full moons. There will be a full moon on August 2nd, and then another full moon on August 31st.

So those of us whom are superstitious in regards to full moons will have two special days in August of 2012.

For the mainland United States, the first full moon of August falls tonight (Wednesday, August 1) at 11:27 p.m. EDT, 10:27 p.m. CDT, 9:27 p.m. MDT or 8:27 p.m. PDT. By Universal Time – the standard clock time at the prime meridian of Greenwich, England – the moon turns full on Thursday, August 2, at 3:27 in the morning. Although the full moon occurs at the same instant worldwide, the clock reads differently according to time zone.

The term Blue Moon can refer to the second full moon in a given month. When people say “once in a blue moon” they are speaking to the rarity of the occurrence of a second moon happening in the same given month.

The August full moon is also known as Full Sturgeon Moon named after the Native Americans. The Sturgeon moon is remarkably named after the sturgeons of fish available around the Great Lakes, however the tribes in the southern part of the Americas name it the Full Red moon because of the heat the moon seems red and hazy. In European nations it was the named Green corn moon after the corns appear to have green leaves and grains are at its highest peaks.

When the Moon is full, the pull linking of the Moon on one side of the earth and the Sun following creates and unbalanced draw and as humans since we are 80% water it many have a great affect on our own bodily water levels including the earths atmosphere.

This is also known as the second moon of Shawnodese, Spirit Keeper of the South is the Ripe Berries Moon (July 23 to August 22) position on the Native American Medicine Wheel. Iron and garnet are the mineral totems for this moon, raspberry is the plant totem, and the sturgeon is the animal totem. The color is red, and the Thunderbird clan influences the position.

Iron teaches people in this position about their strength and garnet shows them their heart is the source of that strength. From the raspberry they learn about their sweetness and the thorns they project to protect this part of themselves from other people. The sturgeon shows them their depth and their need to teach. The Ripe Berries Moon teaches them how to work from the heart center, how to demonstrate affection, how to face fears, and how to develop leadership abilities. This moon helps develop courage and power. People experiencing the sturgeon energy need to guard against impulsiveness, arrogance, and a tendency to dominate any scenario.

Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a physic. An in depth reading should be done every moon cycle. Since, every moon cycle represents a change it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well.
