August 31, 2012, is a magical day!
It's a Blue Moon~
In honor of this magical event, I'm posting about the magnificent effects of the Blue Moon.
The term "blue moon" is defined as the second full moon occurring within a single month. A full lunar cycle is a little over 28 days long. However, a calendar year is more than that, which means that during some years, you may end up with thirteen full moons instead of twelve. This happens only about every two and a half years.
The full Moon Friday night, in all likelihood won't look than any other full Moon. But the Moon can change color in certain conditions: such as after forest fires or volcanic eruptions,
the Moon can appear to take on a bluish or even lavender hue.
Soot and ash particles, deposited high in the Earth's atmosphere can sometimes
make the Moon appear bluish.
Now, what is the magical significance you ask?
Well, my character Tessa Latchford from Damnation & Desire,
who is a third generation Wiccan Witch, might suggest it would enhance the power of her spellcrafting 10 fold, as opposed to any other full moon!
The Blue Moon is considered to be the reflection of the Full Moon in the Otherwolds.
