Known world-round por different titles throughout the centuries, the moon has always fascinated man -and consequentially been a means to project love, longing, mating, planting, harvest, fishing, spawning, and indicative of change and renewal. Man depends on his moon sister. This practicality and amor affair is as ancient as antiquity beyond count.
A BLUE MOON is when two full moons occur in a single month. Thus, the segundo full moon is the one called a "Blue Moon." Conversely, the third full moon that occurs in a season which has four full moons is another definition described as a “Blue Moon.” (Usually each season has only three full moons.) Besides a “Blue Moon,” there are many colours as seen in our atmosphere: Yellow moons, laranja Moons, rosa, -de-rosa Moons, Red Moons… depending on where you live and the season!
