Hunter’s Moon, Beaver Moon, Blue Moon, Micro Moon, or Frost, Frosty, Snow Moon. Sharad Purnima; and the Thadingyut, Hpaung Daw U, and Low Krathong Festival Moon. This All Hallows Eve Moon will appear “opposite” the Sun (in Earth-based longitude) at 10:49 AM EDT and will appear Full through Sunday evening.
Thoughts from around the web on what this Blue Moon on Halloween means:
“Magically speaking, blue and full moons are amazing opportunities to release and heal,” This moon is a very fortunate time to mend our bodies, minds, and hearts.
“Full moons have always been seen as moments in time in which the astrological energy comes to a climax. Since this moon is happening on Halloween and while the Sun is in Scorpio, a sign that is closely connected to the spiritual world, this blue moon is an obvious invitation to get super witchy!” If you aren’t taking advantage of this lunar event and performing a witchy ritual around this time, you’re missing out on all of the mystical, fantastical, and enchanting energy in the air.
“This is one of the few times within the year that we can easily bridge the gap between both worlds. The blue moon will serve as an extra illumination on the metaphorical realm, as full moons expose matters on Earth due to its effervescent glow.”
Halloween will be the first blue moon visible in every time zone since 1944. Might be good to charge those crystals! The next full moon on Halloween that will be visible worldwide is expected in 2077, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.
“Full moons are a time when we get a little assistance seeing in the dark. It is a very significant full moon, and it is happening four days before the election and is sitting next to a planet with upheaval, change, surprise, excitement: Uranus.” It’s a good time to get rid of things we don’t need.
“I think that symbols — and a blue moon is a symbol — do have the potential to activate things in an individual and in the collective. It is a time when something rare can happen.”
For the moon to actually appear blue is a whole different matter. There has to be enough matter of a particular size kicked into the atmosphere that red light is scattered. The popular example of this is the 1883 eruption of the Indonesian volcano Krakatoa. According to NASA, the eruption was so large that for years afterwards,the moon appeared bluish and sometimes greenish. The volcanic ash particles were large enough to block out red wavelengths of light, while other wavelengths carried on as usual.
Full moons are a call for balance. The moon — symbolic of the divine feminine — sitting proudly across from the sun — a symbol of the sacred masculine and the greatest source of energy — is powerful beyond words. This is precisely why full moons are so climactic and revealing. This lunar phase never ceases to bring what’s hidden to light. and with the sun in Scorpio — symbolic of the underworld — opposing the moon in Taurus — a representation of Mother Earth — this lunation is speaking to the cycle of life and death.
To top it off, this full moon will also conjunct Uranus, at the exact same degree, so shocking is an understatement. The “Great Awakener,” and the planet of chaos, revolution, and unexpected change, it’s safe to say that the shocking revelations stemming from this full moon will make history. Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t there, and this year’s full (blue) moon conjunct Uranus on All Hallows Eve will prove it.
Wishing you a HAPPY HALLOWEEN,
no matter what the FULL MOON brings~

December’s full moon was the first of three full moon supermoons in a row.
There was one in Dec., one on Jan. 2 and today’s supermoon – Jan. 31, will be the third. This second moon of January is a “blue moon,” which is the term used for the second full moon in one month.
That blue moon will also be part of a total lunar eclipse, but those in North America won’t get to see it because it will happen during the daylight hours.
We can sing, though….
dievca is catching up with her Master in the evening and she is planning on:
- BIG hair
- smokey eyes
- she’ll be borrowing Master’s White Robe
- wearing Master’s Collar
- no shoes, OPI “I’m Not A Waitress” Red Polish
- Mac Russian Red lips
- lots of candles
- Waterford Crystal
and as dievca is odalisquing, she will ask her Master to wish upon the moon. XO
As the light of the full Moon spills into the room are you planning to dance and serve your Sir under its gentle light? Make a wish, dream a dream and the Blue Moon will guide your way.
Originally, a Blue Moon was defined as the third of four full moons in a single season. More recently, people have defined a Blue Moon as the second of two full moons in a single calendar month.
So, if a full moon occurs early in a longer month – there is a chance for a Blue Moon to appear. It happens every 2-3 years.
Today’s Blue Moon is set to occur at July 31, 2015 – 06:43 am (EDT) for NYC.
When was the last Blue Moon, according to the monthly definition? August 31, 2012.
Let dievca offer some music to dance by — not the most famous version of the song, but the original:
Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue Moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for
And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper, ‘Please adore me’
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold
Blue Moon, now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
