This New Year’s Eve there is a blue moon. We’ve haven’t seen one on this day for twenty years. The moon isn’t really blue. Blue Moon simply refers to the second full moon in the month.
Some believe the term blue moon came into existence because the moon actually looked blue. This phenomenon has happened after a volcanic eruption and there is lots of ash in the sky. Possibly the phrase, “Once in a blue moon” was born from this event. The blue moon is so rare it was associated with a rare event.
European and pagan cultures consider the blue moon to be lucky.
One legend states you must have a piece of silver jewelry or a silver coin to make your wish. You must say your wish three times. Then you place the jewelry or coin under the moon all night. Silver is associated with the moon and the moon goddess. Even if the moon is not visible the pull of the moon’s energy is still present.
I bet you didn’t know wishing wells work best under the blue moon, too. Take your coin and concentrate on your wish then repeat your wish aloud three times. (I see a trend here.) Throw the coin into the well. If a wishing well is not available any body of water will do. Water is the element associated with the moon and love.
Now if you’re really daring, you could bathe in the moonbeams while making your wish. Repeat the wish three times while standing unclothed and in the moon’s bright light.
This last, I believe you’ll be on your own.
I hope all your wishes come true.
May you have a happy and safe New Years!
