What Is a Blue Moon?
The term 'Blue Moon' refers to the second full moon in a calendar month. It is a relatively rare occurrence, happening only once every two to three years. The phrase "once in a blue moon" comes from this phenomena. The Blue Moon is a potent and energetically charged time where the universe gifts us an opportunity to manifest and release energies, making it a perfect time for spell work, cleansing, and manifesting.
What is Blue Moon Magick?
This Blue Moon is especially powerful for magickal workings, as it brings heightened spiritual insight, and psychic awareness. Additionally, the full Blue Moon is linked to emotional transformation and healing, a deep connection with one's intuition, the encouragement of creative endeavors and manifestation of goals and desires. It also provides an opportunity to open to spiritual enlightenment and transformation on a deeper level.
Blue Moon Magick offers a unique opportunity to align with the cosmic forces and accelerate your spiritual journey. Remember, the power of the Blue Moon isn't just about the night itself, but also the days leading up to and following it. Its influence permeates throughout this period, providing ample time to incorporate its energy into your spiritual practices.
Harnessing Blue Moon Energy
The Blue Moon is an excellent time to perform ritual work and spells. Here are few tips on how you can take an active role to tap into this rare moon magick!
1 Create an altar or sacred space dedicated to the Blue Moon to open your mind and spirit to the moon energies. Be sure to decorate it with plenty of blue, using candles, crystals, moon images and deities, incense, and any other items that you feel drawn to.
2 Write your intentions for this Blue Moon- what do you want to manifest or release? Journaling can help bring clarity on what energies need to be invoked or released during this time.
3 Spend some time outdoors under the light of the moon - connecting to the moon's energy and allowing it to flow through you. Set a timer and meditate for at least 15 minutes, envisioning your goals and dreams coming into fruition as you slowly breath in and out - with each inhalation, allow yourself to be filled with positive energy on each inhale and release any negative vibes on the exhale!
4 Utilise crystals and stones - the power of crystals are amplified under a full moon, so it is an excellent time to set crystal grids for protection or healing.
5 Celebrate! – Get together with friends and family, hold a moon party or create a ritual dedicated to the moon. Allow yourself to truly revel in the joy of manifesting your dreams into reality!
6 Make Blue Moon Water, you won't get another chance for a long time!
7 Do grounding activities such as yoga, walking in nature, or immersing yourself in a hot bath can help to further connect you to the energy of the Blue Moon.
8 After performing your ritual or spell work, take time for gratitude - thank the Universe for aiding you in manifesting your intentions.
So what are you waiting for? Take this opportunity to embrace the magickal energy of the Blue Moon and let it guide you on your journey of protection or healing. Make sure you make the most of it!
Crafting a Blue Moon intention candle
Crafting a candle with intention is an excellent way to utilize the Blue Moon's energy. Choose a candle in a blue or silver color and carve your intention into the wax using a nut pick or other carving tool. Next rub the candle with an essential oil, such as jasmine, lavender or sandalwood. Then roll the candle in some dried herbs (check the magickal correspondences below for ideas) and place it in a candle holder. If you wish you may ring the candle with more flowers and herbs along with stones and crystals. Light the candle during your Blue Moon ritual and let it burn fully to release the energy of your intention into the universe.
Honor yourself during the Blue Moon
The Blue Moon is also an excellent time to honor your spiritual journey, personal growth and development, and to check-in with yourself to acknowledge your efforts and achievements. Take time to journal, walk in nature, or perform any ritual that brings you at peace and joy, then reflect positively on your past and reaffirm your intentions for the future. This helps you cultivate a positive relationship with the energy of the universe, harness its power, and manifest your dreams.
