Blue Moon…

Everyone knows this song, I should think – “Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone, without a dream of my own, without a love in my heart…”
What many of you may not know is that there is an actual “blue moon” phenomenon, which has come to be recognised as two full moon events in one calendar month. The upcoming bLue Moon on June 30 is even more rare and special.
You see, due to the time difference between the North and South Hemispheres, you in the North already had your Blue Moon on May 31. The first full moon was on May 2 in Scorpio, the second blue moon on May 31 in Sagittarius.
But in the South, that Sagittarian full moon fell on June 1, making it the first full moon of the month. The Blue Moon falls on June 30 in Capricorn. What a delcious anomaly – two blue moons in two months on opposite sides of the world.
What does a Blue Moon mean in astrology? Well, pretty much as the old saying goes – “once in a blue moon” – something rare, an opportunity, a chance, a surprise, something that doesn’t happen very often. It is most potent if it falls on your birthday, or on the position of the Moon in your chart.
Here are the significant degrees of the Sun signs, so you can check up to see if you have anything there which the moon will activate – the moon moves much more quickly, so just check what you have in the those signs that may be activated by its transit.

On May 2 2007, the Sun was at 11 degrees Taurus, the Moon in the opposite sign of Scorpio.
On May 31-June 1, the Sun was at 9-10 degrees of Gemini, the Moon in the opposite sign of Sagittarius.
On June 30, the Sun will be at 8 degrees of Cancer, the Moon in the opposite sign of Capricorn.

  1. My neighbor saw it and said it was lovely. She swears she saw a faint bluish ring around it. Wishful thinking? I didn’t know Lemuria had a stargazers blog. What a wonderful idea.

  2. Gail – and on this day the 30th of June it is your Birthday so it will be even more
    Love Lois (Muse of the Sea) 11th June ’07

  3. Trust you to notice that, Lois! Hope everyone is up for a bit of a scamper at the Gypsy Camp – a Blue Moon seems like the perfect time for a party…

  4. Thanks for posting about the blue moon! I did a little reading about it back in May when those of us in America experienced it. It’s inspired me to include a blue moon or two! in my writing. Cheshire will be leaving on the heroine’s journey on the night of the June blue moon. I thought that would be a very auspicious date for beginning such a journey.

  5. What a perfect opportunity to do some exploring of any kind. . . .
