With two blue moons happening in the same calendar year, 2018 will have 13 full moons. Another point to note is that the month of February had no full moon in 2018.Astrological Significance of a Blue Moon
In astrological terms, even a full moon is considered fruitful and fulfilling. It is believed to be a good time for making commitments and decisions. A blue moon is even more fulfilling – the time to get things done. It leaves an aura of excitement, energy and emotions. You can utilise the energy of a blue moon to achieve great things. But, be cautious of your deeds. The blue moon doesn’t know to pick the right fruits. If you channelize the blue moon energy in unhelpful or self-destructive tasks, the results would be just too bad for you. So, be careful of what you do on a blue moon day.
Get your equipment ready to enjoy and capture the second blue moon of the year on 31st March, 2018. It won’t happen any soon again.
