Blue Moon and it’s still time for a “cool change”

“Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars”
-Les Brown

It is all over mainstream media and the metaphysical world too – the somewhat rare occurrence of a Blue Moon. What is a Blue Moon? It is the second full moon in a month, and it only occurs about every three years. It is a product of the difference between the lunar month and the calendar month, and it usually isn’t blue. That’s the “real” world definition, but what does this Blue Moon potentially bring forth for our lives in the astrological world?
I have read several astrological interpretations, but the one by Kate Rose, “Unprecedented Blue Moon in Aquarius: Now or Never” (http://www.elephantjournal.com/2015/07/unprecedented-blue-moon-in-aquarius-now-or-never/), really resonated with me. Here are some tidbits:


“This cosmic event is unprecedented—it’s truly a month of transitions…
This moon we are being asked to stop, look around and to see the bigger picture…
We are being asked to notice where in our lives we have been neglecting the truth, or what situations we have been putting off. It’s not easy to deal with life head on—but this moon isn’t only encouraging it, it is making it a requirement…
There is so much happening around this moon in terms of once-in-a-lifetime type chances. It’s as if we are all on the edge of something so big and we have to make the decision to take the path we’ve always taken—or to jump into the territory of new possibilities…
Nothing amazing ever comes from us staying in our comfort zones…
Sometimes we really do need to experience everything that is wrong to know what is right…
As amazing as this moon will be, and necessary—it’s going to be one that challenges us on every single level. In the build up to this lunar event we may have been feeling restless, or have had an excess of nervous energy. Our pulses may have been racing, and it may have been harder for us to relax or fall asleep at night…
Our souls can sense that we are on the verge of something big—but it’s up to us to initiate change…
We are on the threshold of having massive pieces of the puzzle collide. There may be big changes or upsets in the status quo during the next several weeks. We may find ourselves acting in ways that only a few weeks ago we never thought possible, but Aquarius is lighting a fire inside of our hearts and daring us to break the boundaries that have held us back for far too long…
Everything that we have been going through the past year has been leading up to this moon. It’s the time of infinite possibilities, of desires bubbling over and manifesting themselves in our lives in ways we never thought possible…”

I don’t know about you, but I have been feeling some shifts in my being over the last few months: Revisiting and healing some old wounds I thought were healed, letting go of relationships that were no longer serving me, and making deeper connections and powerful strides in my career. It just feels like something is going on. It feels like the beginning of a new era. It is exciting and terrifying at the same time.
What about you? What are the first things that popped into your mind as you read the excerpts above? It may be those things that are worth exploring.
I started the week with a quote from a song by the Little River Band (my love for 70’s music rears its head), and I will end the week with a little more from that song:
“When you’re out on the sea alone
Staring at the full moon, like a lover
Time for a cool change
I know that it’s time for a cool change”

“Full moon” in the lyrics a coincidence? I think not.
