Once in a Blue Moon

You probably have used the idiom "once in a blue moon" to describe something that happens only rarely. You might have even hummed along with the song "Blue Moon" by Billie Holiday or taken a sip of the Belgian-style beer called "Blue Moon." We've all heard about this mysterious blue moon all the time, but do you know what it really means?  Luckily, the meaning of a blue moon does not disappoint; it's just as enchanting as it sounds.

There are several definitions of a blue moon, but the most commonly known is two full moons in one calendar month.  On average, this cosmically coincidental event happens roughly every 2.7 years, so it's not exactly what you'd call "common," but it's certainly not so rare that we won't experience several of them during our lifetime. And we got to see one this morning!

This morning's Blue Moon was also a blood moon and a super moon. Talk about a trinity of "spacial glory", a trifecta of lunar love! To have all three lunar phenomenons happening at once is something to behold and it'll be the first super blue blood moon in 150 years. Now THAT'S what I call "once in a blue moon!"

So, you're wandering what all this "lunacy" has to do with you and your life, right? Why should I care? Well, that's a loaded question but, the energies of the moon impact your life whether you believe it or not. So,  if you've been focusing on something for many "moons" now, then NOW is the time you can see those hopes and dreams come true in the form of awakenings or physical manifestations. Things will come full circle for you if you let go of what no longer serves any purpose in your present life to make room for new and exciting opportunities.

Today, be very conscious about moving forward!  Stop looking longingly at your past, it is done! Move forward and make sure you're letting your heart lead you in all you do!  Celebrate the new and remember the center of your power is heart.  Follow it!! Happy Full Moon!
