The most important thing about today’s Blue Moon is that it is part of the sequence of several of them this year.  Blue Moons are a calendar artifact.  The Wikipedia article on Blue Moons does a decent job explaining them.  We had several across 2009 and 2010, but the next one will not be until 2015.  The most interesting one to await us will be on New Year’s Eve of 2028.  That said, here is the chart:


The ABC News piece on this Blue Moon is also a nice read.  So is this piece from the Daily Mail in London.  Note that the time of day mentioned is different from New York and London.  Just in case you do not know, when it occurs depends on where you live.

But, what does it mean?  This blue moon is mutable, with a Piscean Moon (poetry, play, & music but also drugs, alcohol, and debt) opposing a Virgo Sun (work, “getting things done,” but also debt) and both squared by a Gemini Jupiter (Jupiter makes things large, and Jupiter squares to Sun/Moon lead to overeating, excessive alcohol (or drug) use, and (you guessed it) debt).

So, today is a day where you will be tempted to spend, and you will be tempted to go into debt to do so.  Avoid it if you can.  Create big debts today and you will likely find yourself having a LONG time to pay them off.  But, it is Friday, so many of you will go out with friends or sweetheart (or all) and spend too much money overeating at a large meal, maybe getting dangerously drunk, and finding out “soon” that you really overdid it.

The Horary version of the chart shows both the Moon and Jupiter to be Peregrine, which is horary-speak for “theives.”  “Honorable Acquaintance” and “Sudden Advancement” is lit up in this chart, so some of you will meet important people and receive some kind of “promotion.”  Moon touches Uranus (surprises) when it enters Aries (tomorrow), so this may be a radically unexpected promotion.  (A bit like a cameraman at ABC being suddenly promoted to Vice President or something similarly startling!)

Disclaimer:  Not everybody “believes” in Horary (it is far more like “fortune telling” than the study of aspects/transits).  So, we will have to see if any interesting “promotions” (could be via death of someone) occur in this period.  (I would not be entirely surprised to see a military dictator fall during this window of time.)  Feel free to post your Blue Moon experiences here in the comments section.
