Once in a Blue Moon


This month we have a Full Blue Moon on Halloween, October 31. This is quite rare and special, the first time we have had a full moon on Halloween in 20 years and a blue moon on top of that! Blue Moon energy conveys a spiritual energy that increases the vibration of our spiritual connections. This full moon is in the sign of Taurus, an earth sign, which means that our spiritual connections can enhance our tactile, earthly concerns as well as more etheric elements. What aspect of this speaks to you?

The divine feminine energy that some of you may refer to as Goddess energy is stronger on Blue Moons while we encounter a rare opening for us to have additional communication with spirit. For those of you who address spirit in other terms such as God, ancestors or spirit guides, the energy is unusually strong at this time.

Traditionally, Halloween is regarded as a time when the veil between the worlds is thinnest, which is why our ancient ancestors chose this day as a time to remember those who we know who have already preceded us into the next realm, a perfect time for communication with spirit. The Samhain (Celtic) tradition of the Dumb Supper sets a place at the table for those who have passed to wish them well on their journey, sharing one last meal and memory with them. The Day of the Dead (Mexican) celebrations set a table for those who have passed for the same reason. These traditions are the root practices that evolved in to Trick or Treating. The traditions of masking and costumes also arises from here, as these facilitate passage between the realms. No doubt your have noticed how different you feel and how differently others perceive you when you are in costume. While you are wearing it, you are displaying a different identity which causes others to relate to you in a non-ordinary way. And during that time, you experience a sense of an alternate reality.

Blue Moons are a tremendous window of opportunity for performing shamanic rituals. It is also like getting a do-over for those things that you did not get around to on the first full moon of this month. Try a guided meditation of visualization exercise at this time and feel the energy awaken your intuition and insights.

Tune into your feelings. You know the feeling that you get when things are going well for you? Set a new goal or vision for yourself at this time that raises you to a level beyond what you normally experience. Express your gratitude and open to guidance from spirit at this time for additional blessings. A great time to express these feelings on a new vision board, journal entry or ritual where you can find ways to symbolically express your heart's desire.

Once in a Blue Moon is an expression from folklore dating back ages that signifies that this is a rare event, so we should make good use of it. As with all full moons, there is a three day window for celebrating it: the day before, the day of and the day after. So Friday, Saturday and Sunday around Halloween. (I am booked for the Friday and Saturday near Halloween. Sunday, November 1 is still open and in that Blue Moon window.)

2020 in particular has many of us deeply desiring change of all kinds in our lives. So we have one more opportunity to affect change at a higher level this year. 2020 has been a crazy year that has challenged us to reset our business and personal lives and spirit is reminding us that we can make a powerful spiritual shift forward even though many of us have felt really off kilter this year, and remember that in answering our communications, spirit may respond with something immediately and open the way for us to find more beneficial routes forward. Spirit will always bless us when we are acting in helpful and creative ways.

Healing on all levels is aligned with this point in time at all levels: physical, mental, spiritual and emotional. Let us elevate our goals and visions to a higher level in this special window of time and energy. Do not give up hope. This is our opportunity to renew and rejuvenate as we absorb powerful life lessons and move forward into our new vision.

Blue Moons remind us that even the most unusual things happen naturally from time to time and if we are conscious of these events, we can tune in and align our energies for the illumination of our path and light our way with this special light.

I always love hearing from you, so feel free to reach out if you are feeling moved to do so. Have a wonderful day!
