What Is A Blue Moon?
Chances are you’ve uttered, ‘once in a blue moon!’ a few times in your life. But what is a Blue Moon and why does it sound like a rare astronomy marvel? Is it really blue?
Well, when that Blue Moon blesses our night sky only every two and a half to three years, you may be surprised that it really isn’t blue, but don’t be so quick to scoff at its ordinary appearance. A Blue Moon occurs when there are two full moons in one calendar month, or even in one astrological season. While it may not be a visual show stopper, this SUPERFULL moon can definitely rock your world.
What Is The Spiritual Significance Of A Blue Moon?
The full moon brings heightened emotions, potent creativity, completion, confirmations and a period of abundance. As the new moon is a time of sowing the seeds of inspiration, the full moon is when we bare witness to these intentions coming to fruition. What a powerful time to reflect, lean into your intuition and take personal inventory of what is working and not working in your life, shedding and letting go.
If a regular old full moon is this awesome, a Blue Moon is a supercharged full moon! Everything about your Blue Moon ritual will be bigger, bolder, brighter and more magnificent. You don’t want to miss this astrological phenomenon. Imagine what you could create!
Blue Moon Rituals
As with all full moons, this is the ideal time to sink within and nourish your visions, your body, your mind and your spirit. We love taking a little extra care during this extraordinary time, honoring rituals that embrace the energy of the Super Moon. From deeper dives into meditation practices, to breath work, to journaling and prayer, this Blue Moon is sure to brighten your path!
