What is a Blue Moon Anyway?

Ah, the blue moon, that rare and wondrous event that graces us with its presence once every few years.

You might think it’s just a fancy name for any old full moon, but no my dear, it’s so much more.

You see, the blue moon is a celestial oddity that occurs when we are blessed with two full moons in a single calendar month.

Sounds pretty straightforward, right? But wait, there’s more!

This phenomenon only happens typically around once every 2.7 years, making it a truly special occasion.

Now, you may be wondering why on earth we call it a “blue” moon when it doesn’t actually turn blue.

Well, that’s a fascinating tale in and of itself. You see, back in the day, people used to use the phrase “once in a blue moon” to describe something that happened very rarely.

So when we started using the term “blue moon” to describe this rare lunar event, it caught on like wildfire.

The actual color of the moon doesn’t matter – it’s the rarity of having two full moons in a single month that makes it so special.

And let’s be real, “once in a rare double full moon month” just doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.

Why on Earth do we Call it the “Blue” Moon?

Blue moon, the term we associate with the second full moon in a calendar month, has a sordid history that dates back centuries.

Two Greenwich friars, William Roy and Jerome Barlow, used it to mock the Roman clergy and Cardinal Thomas Wolsey in their anti-clerical pamphlet titled “Rede me and be not wrothe, for I say no thynge but trothe” published in 1528.

Their jibe at the priests’ manipulative nature reads, “If they say the mone is blewe / We must beleve that it is true / Admittynge their interpretacion.”

Basically, the friars were telling their readers not to trust the clergymen who twist the truth to suit their agenda.

In 2007, Joe Rao, a space-watching columnist at, speculated that the “Blue Moon Rule” could have originated from the Old English word “belewe,” meaning to “betray.”

Rao believed that the extra full moon “betrays the usual perception of one full moon per month.”

However, he later admitted that his innovative theory was entirely false. The Farmers’ Almanac repeated a less detailed version of his conjecture in 2009.

Wiccan Beliefs Regarding the Blue Moon

In the ancient wisdom of pagan and Wiccan traditions, the blue moon is a sacred time associated with the fluid and transformative element of water.

This lunar event embodies the powerful energy of emotional healing and renewal, tapping into the depths of the subconscious mind and the ebb and flow of emotions.

As the blue moon rises, so too do the tides of our emotions, calling us to explore the mysteries of our innermost selves.

It is a time for deep introspection and inner work, as we harness the power of the moon’s energy to release negative emotions and traumas, and to achieve emotional balance and renewal.

Through magical rituals and powerful intention setting, we connect with the ever-flowing energy of the universe, drawing upon its healing power to transform and rejuvenate our souls.

So let us come together, dear reader, and embrace the mystical power of the blue moon, allowing it to guide us on our journey of emotional healing and transformation.

The Blue Moon and the Divine Feminine

Honey, when it comes to the moon, we’re talking about the ultimate goddess energy. It’s been linked to intuition, the mysteries of the feminine, and the divine for ages.

In modern magical circles, the blue moon is like the wise old sage of the lunar calendar – a symbol of the kind of knowledge and wisdom that comes with experience. It’s like a nod to women who have surpassed the early stages of cronehood and embraced their inner “Grandmother aspect” of the goddess.

During a blue moon, ladies can tap into that ancient feminine wisdom and get some serious guidance. Whether it’s through meditation, divination, or other spiritual practices, this is the time to channel your inner wise woman and gain some spiritual insight.

For women who honor the divine feminine, the blue moon is a time to embrace and celebrate the many phases of life.

It’s a time to honor the strengths and gifts that come with each stage, and to recognize the beauty in growing older.
