The Blue Moon

Did you know that this evening, we can witness a 'blue moon'?
It will be the first one since 1999!

A blue moon happens when you have more than one full moon in a month.
If you research the 'blue moon', you will find lots of folklore and stories about how the blue moon came to be, what actually defies a blue moon and so on.

These are a few things I have heard this week that peaked my interest!

It is told that is a child is born on a blue moon, they are born with a '6th sense' if you will!! They are more in tune with their surroundings and they grow up to be very social adults. I also heard that is a baby is conceived on a Full Moon (note, not a blue moon, just a full moon), that they will also be born on a full moon. It's true. Go google your birthday and see if it is was a full moon...then do the math. ;)

For those of us 'lucky' enough to have had, or have a spirit(s) residing with us in our homes, the week leading up the blue moon is a week of heightened activity for your fellow house guests! You will find more things are coming up missing or broken. And then, at 11:59pm on the evening of the blue moon, everything will revert back to it's normal 'presence'! Just like that!
