What is a Blue Moon | Learn Witchcraft with Hekate’s Finishing School

What is a Blue Moon?

A blue moon is the second full moon in a calendar month.

The appearance and color of the moon do not change.

For example, on the 1st of a month there is a Full Moon. We would call this a Full Moon.

When there is a second Full Moon on the 31st of that same month, we wouldn’t call it a Full Moon but instead call it a Blue Moon.

Again, the color and appearance do not change.


Is a Blue Moon Rare?

No, not unless it lands on a specific date of significance. But that doesn’t take away from their meaning and importance to many celebrating the natural occurrence. They are seen as good omens and are considered lucky.


A rare Blue Halloween Moon – October 31st, 2020

One of the rarest blue moons is a Blue Halloween Moon on October 31st. This happens only once every 19 years.

Our next Blue Halloween Moon is October 31st, 2020.

After 2020, the next Blue Halloween Moon will be October 31st, 2039!


A Global Blue Halloween Moon –

It’s even more rare if it’s visible to the entire World! But how can this be that it’s visible to the entire world on the same day?

In order to determine whether a Halloween Full Moon occurs, the local calendar must read October 31 and the full moon time must be from 12:00:01 a.m. to 11:59:59 p.m. local time. If that holds true for all time zones in the world, then we have a ‘global’ Blue Halloween Moon.

The last time a Rare Blue Halloween Moon was visible world-wide was 1944.

That’s right, it has been 76 years since the last time a Blue Halloween Moon was seen globally!

What if I’m not ready to use this Blue Halloween magic but I don’t want to miss out?

It’s common to capture the essence, vibration, and / or energy of cosmic events like these in order to use that energy at a later time.

Use a piece of jewelry that has a natural stone setting of some kind, a natural stone on it’s own, candles, or salts, whatever you have on hand.


How long do I have to capture or utilize the power of the Blue Halloween Moon?

Full Moon magic is a three day or three night window (however you want to look at it). You have the actual date of the Full Moon or Blue Moon, then the 24 hours prior and the 24 hours after. You can do working once or on all three occasions, the choice is yours.
