Other than the current popular name for this is "Blue Moon"?  Nope, doesn't mean much of anything. ;)

Interesting... all I know is historically it is considered unlucky. I found a pagan website that suggests it is a time for goal-setting.

Lately, I've been looking up the astrological information surrounding each full moon to help me decide what to focus on for each esbat.

This is only possible with people using the calendar created by Julius Ceaser. Those who use a Lunar calendar- Modern Jews and Arabs, ancient Celts, a few others, cannot by definition have two full moons in one month.

peace,

I agree with ES.  If we were using a lunar calendar, the modern definition of a blue moon would be impossible. There are two modern definitions of for a blue moon.  One is the second full moon in a season and the other, much newer definition, is the second full moon in a calendar month.

I tend to think a lot about what I should work on during a blue moon Esbat.  The timing of the upcoming blue moon speaks to me of new beginnings and hope.

I agree with DS

My coven will be using this particular Esbat to do goal setting. 

I heard that its also a partial lunar eclipse too, I could be wrong though.  I really dont remember where I saw that

According to NASA it is a partial eclipse, but it can't be seen from the US.

There are two modern definitions of for a blue moon.  One is the second full moon in a season and the other, much newer definition, is the second full moon in a calendar month.

Dorothy Morrison in Everyday Moon Magic says the blue moon is the third full moon to rise in a four full moon season.  Just another opinion...
