Blue Moon, You Saw Me Standing Alone …..
Over 400 billion years ago, a massive planetary explosion occurred and a chunk of the earth broke off. This inter-planetary crash was the birth of our moon as we know it today.
The Full Moon has always had a certain mystical and magical quality to it. From a mythological tradition, the Roman goddess of the moon, Luna, was said to ride her silver chariot across the dark sky each night. A symbol of the feminine, it represents the cycle of menstruation and embodies the symbolism of the cycle. The phases of the moon symbolize immortality and eternity, enlightenment or the dark side of Nature herself.
The Full Moon is a powerful and significant time when the moon’s energy is at its strongest and most intense. It has helped us navigate our way around the world, has significant effects on the ebb and flow of the tides, been revered as a cosmic God and has been blamed for crazy, LUNAtic behaviour for centuries. It’s also the only celestial body that man has actually set foot on.
This Blue Moon is the second full moon in a calendar month. About 3% of all full moons are blue moons and they occur on average once every 2.7 years. So having a blue moon in February and March 2018 is very rare indeed. However, blue moon astrology is no different full moon astrology. There are no ancient myths or superstitions about blue moons. The term “blue moon” only appeared a few hundred years ago when Shakespeare used it to describe something that is rare or absurd.
Blue moons are only possible using the Gregorian calendar. Most people in the world still use a lunar calendar like our ancestors did. If the Western World still used a lunar calendar we would be more in tune with natural cycles. We yearn for meaning in the moon and stars above. The Gregorian calendar is one reason we are so removed from our cultural roots.
The Full Moon in Libra on Saturday 31 March 2018 at is a blue moon because it is the second full moon of the calendar month. Full Moon March 2018 is a blue moon in every sense of the word.
Mercury retrograde opposite the Blue Moon March 2018 means it will be hard to understand your feelings and even harder to share them. Worry and fear from fixed stars make this a particularly troubling full moon. Doing nothing and letting the full moon get you down is not an option.
The good thing about challenging aspects is that they force you work hard and improve yourself. The one positive aspect in the full moon chart is helping you positively transform your life in powerful ways. This is a full moon to work with your fears and release them from your subconscious.
