Once In A Blue Moon

What does the saying, 'once in a blue moon', really mean?

A 'Blue Moon' is when there are 2 Full Moons in the same calendar month and this occurs about every 2.7 years, so it is not very common!

So we could say, once every 2.7 years...lol! instead of the age old saying - 'once in a blue moon'!

There will be a 'Blue Moon' on the 31st January 2018. On the same night, there is also a lunar eclipse and a Super Moon!

That is 3 exceptional events on the one night!!

We are in for a treat!

This event is called the 'Super Blue Blood Moon'.

The Super Moon being when the moon reaches it's closest point to Earth in this particular orbit.

The Blue Moon as mentioned above, is where there are 2 full moons in the same calendar month.

A Blood Moon is a full lunar eclipse when the moon passes into the earth's shadow. It is safe to watch the lunar eclipse and it will be seen from anywhere in the world in the night sky. It will depend on where you are in the world as to how much of the eclipse you will see though.

The first full moon of 2018 was January 1, for the northern hemisphere and January 2 2018 in the southern hemisphere.

The 31st January 2018 through to 1st March (when the next Full Moon will appear) is a very powerful lunation (lunation - the time between one full moon and the next).

The reason for this is a 'triple 11 code'. According to Astrologists and Numerologists, this code consists of

- January 31 - Full Moon rises at 11 degrees in Leo

- 2018 = Universal Year 11 (adding numbers of year 2+0+1+8 =11)

- Sun is currently in Aquarius, the 11th House of the Zodiac

Full moons are typically a time for release, healing and abundance. This special time of 31 January 2018 would be the best time to release negative energy and fears holding you back, to make room for new growth and new opportunities.

This is an extraordinary opportunity - make the most of it!

Here is a link to a really good article about this triple treat! It is really worth a read.

These are the best times to see the triple treat from where ever you are in the world.
