Let's take a look at the special moon phases including super moons, blood moons and blue moons as well as their meanings...
The moon goes through some amazing phases and will push or pull us in certain directions as it does so. Aside from its regular new, waxing, full and waning phases there are also three 'special' moon phases that are important. Just like the moon's regular phases, these special phases can have a dramatic effect on us physically, emotionally, mentally and physically. Let's take a look at these special moon phases...
A super moon occurs when the moon is as close to the earth as it can be in its orbit. It can happen in both a new moon and full moon phase but it is of particular importance during its full moon phase (and it looks spectacularly bright and beautiful in this phase). Think of super moons as a double dose of whatever moon energy was going to occur, whether it is a new moon or full moon energy. So if it was a full super moon in Sagittarius then the extroverted qualities of Sagittarius would be amplified within you such as the need to socialise and travel. If it was a new super moon in Sagittarius then the introverted qualities of Sagittarius would be amplified such as being philosophical and gaining knowledge. In general super moons create extremely intense emotions regardless of the sign that it sits in. About three to four super moons occur each year.
A blood moon occurs when the moon is in a total lunar eclipse (when the moon moves into the earth's shadow). This usually creates a pinkish-reddish coloured moon in the sky. Blood moons bring major change in their wake. This change might be very obvious in the form of a job change or relationship change around the time of the blood moon or it might manifest in your mindset or how you view certain things in life. Either way, a blood moon pushes us a little more in the direction that we need to go in to fulfil our destiny since it activates the two lunar nodes.
A blue moon is the 'make up' full moon or the 13th full moon in a year. Blue moons occur every two to three years as the moon's cycle makes up for the extra time in the calendar year. Most people will recognise the second full moon in a calendar month as the blue moon but the blue moon is actually the third full moon in a season of four full moons. So, it is all about timing rather than the movement of the moon when it comes to blue moons. The saying 'Once in a blue moon' rings slightly true when it comes to the meaning of blue moons, as in rare and unusual things seem to happen during them, but the blue moon tends to amplify the sign of the zodiac that it is transiting in more than anything (yet to a slightly lesser degree than a super moon). Blue moon evenings also tend to bring about a lot more activity from earth and fairy energies too.
