- it is also a Super Moon, as it is closer to the Earth than usual
- it is a Blue Moon , as it is the second full moon in January
- it is a Red Moon, as there will be a lunar eclipse visible in many parts of the world. This usually makes the moon appear red.
So on January 31st, 2018 there will be a Super Red Blue Moon! Plan your spells and rituals to take advantage of this extra lunar energy. Also, as the full moon occurs early on the 31st, you may want to perform your spells and rituals on January 30th.
Also, the Wiccan festival of Imbolc happens on February 1st, so this is an ideal time to cleanse and charge your tools.
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. Since this blue moon occurs in the sun sign Aquarius (Jan. 21 ~ Feb. 19), so it is a full fire moon in the opposite sign of Leo. Wiccan traditions call for spells to increase wealth and prosperity.
Sun in Aquarius – January 21 – February 19
A full moon in Leo is an ideal time to boost your good fortune by thinking big. Often, we can’t even imagine realizing our dreams, but nothing happens without believing it first.
