blue moon tonight! whoa.
Here’s something to “Did you know…” your colleagues with this afternoon: Tonight it’s a rare Blue Moon. Rare? How so? As Adelaide blogger and healer Rebecca Dettman at psyched in stilettos helpfully writes:
One Blue Moon, every once in a while (every 2.5 years to be exact), is rare enough. But how about two in the same year — within three months of each other?! March 30 sees the second Blue Moon for 2010…
The term ‘Blue Moon’ is at least 400 years old. The definition of a ‘Blue Moon’ is two full moons falling within a calendar month…
So what? Well, Rebecca adds:
It’s a time of new beginnings, and of getting things right that you messed up or missed the first time through. Some groups use it as a period of initiation and re-dedication, so if there’s something new you need to start, now’s a good opportunity to do so.
I’m not entirely au fait with all this kind of thinking. So I asked astrologer Yasmin Boland (she writes the charts in Body & Soul) to expand, too. We ran into each other a few weeks back and chatted about how everyone was on quite a high after the first Blue Moon this year which occurred New Year’s Eve. Did you notice the same? How everyone seemed to wake up New Year’s Day in a resolved, philosophical mood? I did. Anyway, Yasmin’s thoughts:
Today’s Full Moon in Libra is important for anyone who needs to Sort Something Out in their relationships department. The Moon is full in the sign of Libra, the relationship sign. So whether it’s a work thing or a love thing, it’s time to let something go, get over it and move on! There is a lot of healing and good feeling to be had.
I find this stuff interesting in hindsight. I always read my star sign the following day, to see what resonates.
Let me know how tonight pans out for you…whether you sleep well, dream intensely, feel resolved about something, cry on your own for a bit…
