We’ve all heard the expression “once in a blue moon” but do you know what it really means? The term “blue moon” is used to describe the second of two full moons that take place in one month. What makes this even more special is the fact that we won’t experience another blue moon until 2018.
Full moons are a time for releasing negative energies and situations that no longer serve you. This full blue moon requires you to slow down and take a look at the bigger picture of your life, especially with regards to attachments and independence. There may be a sudden illumination, one of those moments that the light bulb goes off and you just get it. It’s not as sudden as you think. These energies have been slowly coming and now is the time that it makes sense. You may have been feeling restless, scattered, busy minded — like your on the verge of something — and you are! Deep down you have the answer, you know it’s time to make the leap and push yourself out of your comfort zone. Don’t pass up this opportunity, it may only come once in a blue moon.
Enjoy the energy of this full moon. Take some time to quiet your mind and listen to what your heart is telling you. You may find it helpful to make time to journal your thoughts and emotions or enjoy a cleansing and restorative bath (try adding these bath salts to detoxify and relax even more). Full moons are the best time to cleanse and restore the energy of your stones as well.
