A Blue Moon has been with us throughout the ages. In ancient times it had a mysterious folklore which often created mistrust with the people. In modern times it carries the essence of intrigue which created the popular saying of something occurring “Once in a Blue Moon.”
There are two types of Blue Moons actually. Typically, we think of a Blue Moon when a second full moon occurs within a single calendar month. However, that is not the case here. Instead we are looking at a Seasonal Blue Moon which is when we experience four full moons in the same season. The third of these four moons is considered the Blue Moon. In 2021, we will have full moons during summer occurring on June 24, July 23, August 22, and one more to come on September 20, two days before Fall begins on the 22nd, making the August 22nd full moon a Seasonal Blue Moon.
As a Seasonal Blue Moon, the August 2021 full moon packs some very unique energy which can manifest in sudden changes, rare turn of events, mysterious inspiration and chance luck. This year it falls at 29 degrees in Aquarius so things are at the end of their rope and change must happen. A seasonal blue moon only happens about once every three years, so you won’t see the next one until August 2024.
