Happy Moon-Day friends! We will have a Blue Moon Saturday morning, July 31, 2015, but a Blue Moon is not “blue,” and it is not that rare, occurring once every ~2.7 years. The definition of a Blue Moon comes from a 1940’s article that appeared in Astronomy Magazine suggesting the definition of a Blue Moon was the second Full Moon in a calendar month. The Blue Moon has no astrological significance per se, in that it is not based on the lunar calendar but instead it is based on the more arbitrary civil calendar. However, it does occur this year on Guru Purnima, which is the most auspicious Full Moon of the year per Vedic astrology tradition. (More on Guru Purnima in my next post tomorrow). Even though not tied to the lunar calendar, the mystique of “Once in a Blue Moon” captures our imaginations and becomes important simply as there is so much collective attention placed on it, or as Shamanic astrologer Cayelin K. Castell said in her website article about the Blue Moon, “We inform the mysteries as much as they inform us, and what we put our attention and intention on becomes meaningful.” So why not plan to dream big this week? I’m in!
