July 31, 2015 Blue Moon Wiccan Spells & Rituals

Blue Moon fullOn July 31, 2015, a second full moon, sometimes known as a Blue Moon, will appear. According to Wiccan tradition, as it is in the sun sign Leo, it is considered to be a Full Air Moon in the opposite sun sign Aquarius.

What is a Blue Moon?

Some sources state that a Blue Moon is the second full moon in a month, while the Farmers’ Almanac definition of a Blue Moon is the third full moon in a season with four full moons. Since each season typically has only three full moons with definite names for each, an extra moon could cause a mix-up, so the third moon is termed blue.

Other sources hold that a true Blue Moon only occurs once every three or four years, when a full moon happens twice in the same astrological sign.

Regardless, a Blue Moon is always an ideal time for powerful spells and ceremonies. When you are celebrating this Blue Moon, you may follow the ritual for a full air moon in Aquarius.

    If I cant find iris incense how can I replace it for the love spell to be closer?

    • Holly Zurich

      You can substitute cinnamon, patchouli, vervain, (also called verbena), bay laurel or lemon incense for iris (orris root) incense in a love spell. If you can’t find any of those, burn a good all-purpose incense, like jasmine or lavender, and add dried iris blossoms, bay laurel, lovage or primrose to your philtre. ¡Bendito seas!
