A blue moon is an additional full moon that appears in a subdivision of a year, either the third of four full moons in a season or, a second full moon in a month of the common calendar.

The phrase has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon, although a literal "blue moon" (the moon appearing with a tinge of blue) may occur in certain atmospheric conditions; e.g., when there are volcanic eruptions or when exceptionally large fires leave particles in the atmosphere. This phenomenon is specific to calendars.

The suggestion has been made that the term "blue moon" for
Moon 8-31-2012 by Priya Kumar Muscat Masqat Oman
"intercalary month" arose by folk etymology, the "blue" replacing the no-longer-understood belewe, 'to betray'. The original meaning would then have been "betrayer moon", referring to a full moon that would "normally" (in years without an intercalary month) be the full moon of spring, while in an intercalary year, it was "traitorous" in the sense that people would have had to continue fasting for another month in accordance with the season of Lent.

In recent decades, many people have begun using the name Blue Moon to describe the second full moon of a calendar month. There was a full moon on July 2, 2015. There’s another full moon today (July 31). So the July 31 full moon will be called a Blue Moon, according to this definition.

The time between one full moon and the next is close to the length of a calendar month. So the only time one month can have two full moons is when the first full moon happens in the first few days of the month. This happens every 2-3 years, so these sorts of Blue Moons come about that often.

To see the next full moon wait by 2018:
  • January 31, 2018
  • March 31, 2018
  • October 31, 2020
  • August 31, 2023
  • May 31, 2026
  • December 31, 2028
  • September 30, 2031
  • July 31, 2034

    Five ways to raise your awareness to a higher level

    Five ways to raise your awareness to a higher level by Ralph Marston

    1. Replace judgment with acceptance. Remind yourself that what’s done is done, and no amount of assigning blame will change that. Furthermore, what’s here is here, and no amount of judgment will change that. Keep yourself grounded in reality while keeping your focus on the positive possibilities. Accept what is real right now and you also will be accepting the best of those possibilities.

    2. Get out in front of your deadlines and obligations. Instead of always playing catch-up, and pouring much of your energy into resentment for what must be done, get proactive. Do what must be done long before it has to be done. Give yourself the luxury of working at your own pace instead of constantly having a deadline hanging over your head. Transform what you have to do into what you choose to do.

    3. Inject gratitude into every thought and interaction. Operate from a place of genuine thankfulness. Be thankful for what is and for what can be. Be thankful for the opportunity to speak and work with others. Thankfulness redirects your awareness away from the frustrations and disappointments, and toward the positive possibilities.

    4. Get involved in life. Don’t just think about it or speculate on what might or might not happen. Awareness certainly involves your thoughts, and yet it is much more than that. A large component of your awareness is your experience. Just thinking about experience is not sufficient. You’ve got to get out and experience that experience. A richness of whole-life experience will raise your awareness like nothing else can.

    5. Embrace challenge. Instead of fighting against the challenges or running away from them, welcome them as opportunities for growth and enlightenment. In any challenging situation, your attitude makes all the difference. The challenge is what it is. However, what you make of it is up to you. Choose to use that challenge as a powerful prompting to raise your thinking and awareness to a higher, more effective level. And long after the challenge is over, you’ll continue to live more richly and effectively.

    New Moon Abundance Check #July / Cheque da Abundância da Lua Nova #Julho

    Attracting abundance isn't as hard as most of us think. 
    The human potential is far greater than what we've been conditioned to believe and as a result we have a terrible tendency of underestimating ourselves.

    If you limit your self-belief, then you're ultimately limiting the
    potential abundance you could be attracting.
    First, you need to have absolute belief that your goals, whatever they may be, is undoubtedly within reach.

    Next, you need to expect that your dreams will not only occur but will come to you.

    New Moon  is the perfect time to manifest what you wish to have in your life.  
    This is a wonderful time to have self-confidence and go after what calls to you even if you don’t know how it will happen.
    When you write the New Moon Abundance Check, you are aligning your intention with the universe, signaling that you are ready and willing to receive. This is a practical exercise in intention. Doing this every month simply reaffirms that intention.

    This is a fantastic exercise to make a habit

    Gratitude for the abundance in your life.

    Atrair abundância não é tão difícil como a maioria de nós pensa.
    O potencial humano é muito maior do que o que temos sido
    condicionados a acreditar e, como resultado, temos um terrível
    tendência de subestimar-nos a nós mesmos.

    Se você limitar a sua auto-confiança, então você está em última análise, limitando a abundância potencial que você poderia estar atraindo.

    Primeiro, você precisa acreditar absolutamente que os seus objetivos, quaisquer que sejam eles estão, sem dúvida, ao seu alcance.

    Em seguida, você precisa esperar que seus sonhos não só irão ocorrer, mas virão para você.

    A Lua Nova é o momento perfeito para manifestar o que você deseja ter na sua vida.
    Este é um momento maravilhoso para ter auto-confiança e ir atrás do chamamento, mesmo que você não saiba como isso vai acontecer. 
    Quando você escreve os Cheques da Abundância da Lua Nova, você está alinhando a sua intenção com o universo, sinalizando que você está pronto e disposto a receber. Este é um exercício prático de intenção. Fazendo isto todos os meses simplesmente se reafirma essa intenção.

    Este é um exercício fantástico, 
    torne-o um hábito

    Preencha o seu Cheque da Abundância mensal e não se esqueça de expressar Gratidão pela abundância em sua vida.

    The Energies of July

    "June Review

    June was a fast paced month with a focus on dealing with change. Whether you were feeling frenetic with the pace or a sense of freedom, time kept moving you toward more creative abilities and participation with life. Have you noticed the pace of change? Time seems to be moving faster than ever. June kept us on our toes as we found life calling us into great participation with it. Have you noticed that meditation is shorter and more potent? Have you noticed your manifestations speeding up? If not, deepen your focus and start with simple things that have no emotional charge and look for synchronicity. Clear the heart for more access to Love. July will be supporting this.

    For some, I noticed a theme of anger, rage and hatred releasing in June, especially around family. These are emotions that those on a spiritual path often don’t like to deal with. They aren’t comfortable to feel or receive, that is why it is best to move through them in the healthiest way possible. These emotions can get stuffed deep and even covered with more comfortable things like martyrdom, judgment, avoidance, etc. This creates an addictive effect as one continues to suppress and avoid.

    Not everyone has the same path, pace or need to process in the same way. For those that were clearing these energies, it may have processed as they slept, either in dreams or just in less rejuvenative sleep. Others had a harder time concentrating or meditating.  Others had it in their experience and were learning boundaries. If you were experiencing this, you are clearing your vibration for greater freedom. Without the past silently creating discord within you, you are free in the present moment. This is the power of forgiveness. It frees you. Thank you for all that you are doing!

    July Energies

    Heart/Mind balance is moving to a new level! This is a core aspect of Ascension. It is natural for our bio-mechanism to evolve into greater coherence in our subtle expression.  As our subtle expression of feelings and thoughts become more coherent, we are amplifying our electromagnetic force.

    Esoterically, the heart is connective, vast, timeless and KnowsLove. The mind delineates, as does time; it is a vehicle of refinement in physical form. It takes the vast information and deals with what the conscious mind can access. This is why it is important to stay open-minded, so your unconscious can relay information to the conscious mind more easily. To have the heart and mind in coherence means that the Loving information of the heart is leading the mind to create through a foundation of connection and co-operation. Nature shows us how powerful that is for thriving.

    In June, some were clearing out emotions that were blocking them from a greater access to Love. In July, I feel a focus around letting go of control and emphasizing the deep knowing of the power of Love to heal and create something magical that we couldn’t have imagined was possible. Letting go of control is a mixed bag, it’s not all bad. For instance, controlling your negative thought chatter, healthy eating and exercise habits, or anger processing are a few examples of things that are benefited by control. Any of them could also be imbalanced, like avoiding reality and only thinking positive thoughts or controlling your anger to the point that it just gets stuffed inside and you do not hold healthy boundaries. Balance is key, nothing is just bad on Earth. It is all an experience that has a potential benefit that must be found. Heart/mind coherence allows new information to surface.

    July feels as if it is moving us more toward mind connection with ease and the potentials of the future. That is easy when things are good. It is a different feeling in the midst of chaos. Whichever you are experiencing in a moment, keep a little detached observance of how you are reacting, the motivations of anyone involved, the fears that are surfacing and seek a focus on an empowering, though unknown, outcome. It’s important to do this when things are easy so you become accustomed to what it feels like to observe. It’s not as easy and doesn’t feel as good in challenge, so practice when things aren’t so charged.


    Things are moving so fast! I hope the improvement is becoming apparent to you. You can’t just watch the news and see it, but sometimes the clues are in there. July is an exciting building of personal empowerment and the improvement of the bio-mechanism that is inherently divine. As we each become personally empowered, responsible, focused, peaceful, joyful and embrace human life, the world really begins to change. July will support you into more peace, even as things are moving quickly. That requires a strength from within that isn’t just dependent on good circumstances, but it does create good circumstances over time. July will call you to more focus on the beautiful potentials of life. Focusing some Love within will help you amplify your potentials. Loving yourself increases your flow of Love so that life is manifesting powerfully through you. Your Love flow changes the world."
