Blue Moons & General Symbology of the Moon

The moon represents the feminine energy. For Women this is a time of reaffirming the glory that makes us female. For men, this is a time to polish your star-bright armour (be reflective & tap into the sensitive side of chivalry).  

She is Silvery – which represents; Clarity, Purification, Subtlety and Transition. 

She is Shadowy – She makes no light of her own and is reflected by the sun (masculine) light. Her light is an illusion and yet it shines. She is cloaked in mystery and the key to our inner knowing, intuition and psychic ability. 

Phases of the Moon 

New moons are the time to start new projects and to write your abundance checks. When the moon is growing then we plant new seeds and nurture their growth. 

Full moons are when we ensure completion of those new moon projects and we let go of what is not necessary in our lives. It is known as a good time to start any detoxifying you may want to do in your life or your body. 

No moon - is a time of deep inner reflection

Blue Moons  

When there is a fourth full moon within one astronomical season, it is known as a blue moon. This rare calendar event only happens once every few years, giving rise to the term, “once in a blue moon.” There are normally only three full moons in each season of the year. But since full moons occur every 29.53 days, occasionally a season will contain 4 full moons. The extra full moon of the season is known as a blue moon. Blue moons occur on average once every 2.7 years. Another definition of a blue moon is when you have two full moons in a calendar month. A Moon that actually looks blue, however, is a very rare sight. The Moon, full or any other phase, can appear blue when the atmosphere is filled with dust or smoke particles of a certain size; slightly wider than 0.7 micron. The particles scatter the red light making the Moon appear blue in coloru, this can happen for instance after a dust storm, forest fire or a volcanic eruption. Eruptions like on Mt. Krakatoa, Indonesia (1883), El Chichon, Mexico (1983), Mt. St. Helens (1980) and Mount Pinatubo (1991) are all known to have caused blue coloured moons.
