I am sure that most of you have seen that tonight we are having a blue moon! :-) While there are some variations on the definition of a blue moon, this one is categorized as such due to the fact that it is the second full moon in the same month.
So what does this mean for us magickally? According to moon magick beliefs, this is a great time to decide on setting new goals. This is a time of creativity and starting new projects. If you have going through something and want to have a fresh start, tonight is great time to put some energy towards that thought process.
Light yourself a nice candle, put on some mood music, and write in your journal about any new projects that you would like to plan. Put some energy towards the idea that you are wanting a clean start on an old problem. Set goals for upcoming events and projects. This is an awesome time to thing magickally, creatively, and with thoughts of letting go of past failures and looking forward to new successes.
This is also a good time to charge up ritual objects that you might have - put them out in the moonlight!
If the weather holds out, charge yourself out in the moonlight, too! Visualize the enriching rays filling you with promises of success, letting go of past failures, and sticking to new goals.
Since we won't get another blue moon of this type until January 31, 2018, I think I will make some blue moon oil! It's pretty easy!
What you need: 1 lodestone, 1 piece of iron pyrite, some blue violet leaves and whatever carrier oil you prefer. Throw them into a mason jar, shake them up, and leave them out in the moonlight overnight. Voila! Blue moon oil charged up under the light of the blue moon. This is an oil that can be used to consecrate objects, work with new projects, goal setting, creativity, etc.
