On Oct 31 a rare blue moon will shower divine blessings onto the earth.  The veil between the spirit world and the physical world is thinner now, stay open to receive messages and guidance from beyond.

This full moon is called a blue moon because it is the second in the month of October.  In Vedic tradition, it’s the auspicious full moon of Sharad Purnima, when the light of the full moon becomes saturated with the nectar of love and renewal.

Moon-bathing in this celestial nectar is especially beneficial for health and happiness. You can charge a glass of water or sweetened milk with full this moonlight by leaving it under its rays for some time, then share it with friends or family.

This full moon is also celebrated as the is the night of Lord Krishna’s ecstatic dance, when Radha and the gopis sneak away for an evening of blissful dancing that seems to last an eternity.

The full moon will reach its peak at 7:49 am Pacific time by the Vedic star of Bharani.  Symbolized by a womb or yoni, Bharani hold the life-giving power of the divine feminine, and the power of love and the power of sexual energy to heal and regenerate.  Bharani is also the star of Yama, the Hindu god of death, who is responsible for collecting souls and directing them toward rebirth.

It’s also the time of Samhain, Halloween and the Day of the Dead, when the spirit world comes closer to the world of the living. This is a powerful time to honor and remember those who have passed away, and ask for guidance in life from those who watch over from beyond.

A supportive influence of expansive Jupiter gives this full moon an extra push to envision new possibilities and let go of past grievances .  With bright courageous Mars nearby in sidereal Pisces, there’s also a fierce call to stand up for your heartfelt beliefs.

To take full advantage of this full moon, try to catch some moonbeams on the 30th (the night before the full moon) when the energy of the full moon is still growing.
