Although this isn't strictly a Blue Moon in astronomy, it is one according to popular definition, being 'the second full moon to occur in a calendar month.'
"Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth." Buddha
The 31 July Blue Moon is all about telling the truth! Here are some astrology and numerology tips for what to expect:
A Leo Sun will oppose the Moon in Aquarius. Leo is ruled by the Sun, which could be why some Leos act like 'the world revolves around them'. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, which gives them a rebellious, eccentric nature and a desire to help humanity.
Think of a Hollywood star meeting a charity worker - it could be awkward unless they find a common cause to talk about. Some people will find this Blue Moon straining, because it's harder to hide your true feelings at a Full Moon (especially as it's a Super Moon).
If you've been faking a friendship or relationship, then it may end over the next few months, which will be for the best. You've only got one beautiful, beating heart - why fill it with people who don't care about you?! That just makes it harder for your soulmates to come in...
Instead, make time to reconnect with those who lift you up. Just be prepared for a little drama. Sensitive adults and children often have trouble relaxing under a Full Moon and, let's face it, sleep deprivation + intense planetary changes* are a recipe for mood swings! Maintaining a sense of humour will be essential. Meditation, healings and baths are also recommended.
*Venus (the planet of Love) and Uranus just turned retrograde. So the energies until late 2015 are willing us to break free from old patterns, especially in the area of relationships (with our selves/ bodies/ partners/ exes), and other areas where we experience chronic pain and frustration.
A wise man once said to me that we succeed by helping other people to succeed. The 31 July Blue Moon will highlight where you need to balance personal pride with partnerships for the greater good. If you've been soldiering on for months (e.g. at work, looking after your kids etc.), you may find that you no longer want to go it alone, because, well, it's lonely!
Did you know? The numerology of the Blue Moon resonates with its astrology. 31.7.2015 adds up to 19, which is a karmic number in numerology representing someone who tends to refuse help. Numbers go from 1-9 and the number 19 can reflect the energy of wanting to control every aspect of a process. Conversely, it can also indicate someone who acts helpless instead of taking responsibility. With these factors in mind, the 19 Universal Date of this Blue Moon invites us to seek inter-dependence rather than excessive independence or codependency.
Reaching out is the key to success right now. This is a great time to join groups of like-hearted people who can support you in your journey. As the African saying goes 'if you want to walk fast, walk alone. If you want to walk far, walk together'.
This Blue Moon is ALSO one of the best opportunities in 2015 to receive psychic dreams and/ or insights. So if you love meditation, pull out your yoga cushions, crystals and dream diary, and make the most of this time for review. After all, that's what a Full Moon encourages us to do - reflect.
Our shadows are darker under a Full Moon, both literally and metaphorically. This is a time to calmly witness our dark side and to celebrate our perfect imperfection.
They say that you're either evolving or going extinct. That's why
I am using this Blue Moon to tick something off my bucket list (by learning Stand Up Comedy with Fiona McGary). Why? Because I want to overcome my fear of being laughed at - by being laughed at. Ironic, huh?
If you've got an idea to pursue, then I encourage you to take a step forwards by the New Moon on 15 August. After all, an energy portal like this only comes around 'once in a Blue Moon'! Just a tip - if you miss this Blue Moon, the next one falls on 31 January 2018 - and the next Blue Moon in July is on 31 July 2034! So you could be waiting a while...
And a final hint - spells cast under a Blue Moon have far greater power, so if you've got a magic wand handy, make a wish! Even better - make a wish at 11:11! This is the Spiritual Code for New Beginnings, which I write about extensively on this website and on facebook as The Numbers Queen.
I hope you've enjoyed this forecast for the Blue Moon on 31 July 2015. Remember, the truth always wins. Be honest. Be kind. Be love.
"What can we gain by sailing to the moon if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves? This is the most important of all voyages of discovery, and without it, all the rest are not only useless, but disastrous." Thomas Merton
