The fact that four blood moons will occur over the next year is unique however, it can scientifically be explained by the fact that the earth's orbit is ever changing and as such tetrads inconsistently appear. Considering that there are multiple references to the blood moon or a moon appearing the colour of blood in the bible there are many theorists who believe that this will result, once again in the end of the world or the second coming of Christ. As both the moon and sun have a powerful effect on the humanity in general I definitely believe that the appearance of four blood moons in the span of one year will affect us. But do I believe that the end of the world is upon us once again and the Jesus will make his second appearance on Earth? ... not so much.
According to paganspath, the energy of the blood moon is specifically helpful for "energizing fertility, abundance and communicating with the spirit". In general the full moon is an excellent time for cleansing i.e. of crystals, leaving your crystals or herbs out on this night bathed in moonlight would add a bit of extra mojo (every bit of earthy energy counts right?!). Oh and did I mention Monday is the day associated with the moon?! mhm. Also, if your Wiccan today is an awesome sauce day to celebrate the goddess.
Personally I have an exam tomorrow so I won't be able to stay up and see the blood moon. Ah well university is priority. I did however celebrate this esbat by having a shower and turning clockwise repeating the phrase "I cleanse myself for this full moon". I would have liked to have had a bath but I am currently sharing my apartment with four other people (university budget and all, can't even hide my excitement for my new place this fall that will only be occupied by me and my bf :D ) so that wasn't so much in the cards for tonight.
If you're celebrating this full moon how so? What does this blood moon mean to you?
