Once in a Blue Moon

Did you know that this May we will have two full moons? The first one occurred on May 2nd. The next one is on May 31st, tomorrow night! This one is called a "Blue Moon". This is what the second full moon occurring in one month is called. To find out why, you can check out the Farmer's Almanac.
This only occurs about every 3 years or so.

Magickly speaking, using this energy would be wise, especially if you have a problem that you have put off working on for a long time. Think on the things that you need to attend to in your life. The full moon is about balance. It's not necessarily a time to start new things, but instead giving an "oomph" to your existing life. The moon, when full, can light our way on clear nights. Use this ability to illuminate your path when building a ritual. Cleaning out the cobwebs, as it were. Even if you just do a gratitude working, this is a wonderful time to do it! Doing a ritual working or spell under this special moon is sure to bring much emphasis to your task.

Where I live, I can see the Moon rise up over the eastern horizon, and then reflect on the lake as it tracks across the sky. I have tried to capture it's beauty with my camera, but to no avail. I can, however, capture some of it's energy to help me with a spell.
Even if you can't see the Blue Moon due to cloud cover where you are, you can still use it's energies to assist you. I hope you have a wonderful time!

Bright Moonlit Blessings,
