I’d be remiss if I didn’t discuss the symbolic meaning of the Blue Moon….after all, it only happens once in a blue moon (I know, trite. But I couldn’t resist).
You can go to Wiki for blue moon facts, but stay here if you want a proper philosophical wax about the rare (and symbolic) lunar gifts proffered tonight.
So what’s this Blue Moon fever all about Alphie?
Here are some symbolic points for your consideration:
Color Me Cobalt
Although it’s dubbed the “Blue Moon” it isn’t necessarily blue, but that doesn’t dampen the symbolic implications of this colorful label. Blue hues are all about communication and clarity of expression.
Consider the Vishuda chakra. It’s that shiny azure pinwheel that spins in the throat of our energetic matrix. Right at the center of our verbal communication H.Q. – the voice box. When the color blue shoots a bullseye in my symbolic awareness, I’m always compelled to pay close attention to my modus communicandi. This full Blue Moon, I invite you to do the same:
What are you expressing?
What kind of signals are you sending?
What’s the motivation behind your communication?
Utilize this blue-moon-moment in time to contemplate your spoken and unspoken articulations.
Lassoing the Symbolic Moon
To truly appreciate this rare Blue Moon event, we would do well to move our minds over the symbolic meanings tied to the moon. Admittedly, this feat can be exhaustive, because pulling on one strand of shimmery lunar symbolism – causes the whole of moon symbolism to unravel like a ball of spun silver yarn. Cutting overwhelment off at the pass, here are a few basic symbolic features we can drink from the lunar chalice:
- Feminity - The Moon is the Yin, sweetly partnered with the Solar Yang. For women, this means a time of reaffirming the glory that makes us female. For men, this is a time to polish your starbright armor (be reflective & tap into the sensitive side of chivalry).
- Shadowy - Making no light of her own, our Luna Domina is a cloaked mistress. Her knowledge (and our own awakening) is best tapped with physical eyes shut. This means reliance upon intuitive methods for gaining insight.
- Silvery - Alchemists have long associated the attributes of Silver to the moon. This symbolic hand plays prime aces like: Clarity, Purification, Subtlety, Transition and a whole slew of appropriate adjectives.
Timing is Everything
This Blue Moon is rediculously symbolic because it lands on the last day of the traditional calendar year. Lady Luna is gravid with her shadowy potential – she has been building up to this moment…now what are we going to do about it?
This is a brilliant time to recount the phases of our lives that have lead us to this very moment in time. Milestones in memories ought to be revisited on this auspicious Blue Moon night. Epiphanies of the past should be taken out of our velvety Soul pouches and turned over in our minds.
This is a kind of night to hold our spiritual glimmeries up to the lunar light and watch them sparkle with delight. Recount those *bling bling* moments in your life on this night. Doing this is like forming a powerful union with this unique full moon. As our Lunar Queen is full of promise, so too shall YOU be full. You are a vessel filled to the brim with potential.
Reinforce your inner radiance by taking stock of all the brilliance you have achieved, encountered and facilitated up to this point. Become pregnant with your remarkability, and allow the lunar light to amplify the pageantry of who you are.
All that said, my deepest trust is that each of you shall step into this bright sapphire night with renewed lunar insight.
This is an insanely pivotal moment in time. Seize it. Squeeze the ever-loving stuffin’ out of it! Reap the lunar tides my hearties (and come back here to tell me about your revalatory reveries!).
