What is a blue moon?

We have often heard the phrase “once in a blue moon”, so what does it mean? It implies something that has a rare possibility of occurrence. A blue moon is the second of two Full Moons that happens within a month. This is a rare occurrence and hence we call it the Blue Moon. We also refer the Moon as a  Blue Moon when four Full Moons happen during  an astrological season, say spring, summer, autumn and winter.


What is like to experience a Blue Moon? 

Like with all full moons, during Blue Moons we experience highly sensitive energy which if not controlled and drained properly might end up in us getting tired, worn-out and overly emotional.

Is a blue moon lucky or unlucky?

Blue Moon is just a Full Moon and does not have any luck or fortune associated with it. However there has been an ancient myth that when you look at the Blue Moon through a glass, you will encounter bad luck for the ensuing month.

Does the Blue Moon possess any special powers?

A Blue Moon does not have any special powers, it is just another Full Moon day. But then lore has it that magic and witches would lose their power on this Blue Moon day.

How rare is a Blue Moon?

In general, a  blue moon occurs once every 33 months or full moons, 41 times per century, or about seven times every 19 years. Even rarer is when two blue moons happen in the same year,  and this happens about four times in every  century.

How often do blue moons occur within a year ?

Usually, in a  year that a blue moon occurs, there is only 1, but sometimes there are two such as in 2018 when both January and March had blue moons.

When is the next blue moon due ?

The next  Blue moon is on Friday, August 30, 2023,  21:35 EST or August 31, 2023 02:35 UTC.

When  was the last blue moon?

The last blue moon occurred on October 31, 2020 9:49 Eastern Time. It was the only blue moon in 2020.

Past Blue Moons

Blue moons did not occur in the years of 2010, 2011, 2015, or 2017.
