The Blue Moon
The first known use of the term "Blue Moon" occurred about 400 years ago and was intended as an example of something which seemed almost improbable or something that most likely would never happen; hence, the expression "Once in a Blue Moon." Although the origins of the meaning of the "Blue Moon" cannot be substantiated in pagan communities, some believe that the second full moon holds the knowledge of the Goddess, and, therefore, contains a three-fold energy.
Still others hold the view that the "Blue Moon" represents a time of heightened or clearer communication between our physical being and the Great Grand Mother Goddess or the Crone Goddess. With that in mind, I would like to say that there is not only a "Blue Moon" occurring on the 31st, but also a partial lunar eclipse...meaning that this is a VERY powerful time for wishing magic and making goals. Enjoy the energies.
