A calendar based Blue Moon occurs more frequently than suggested by the phrases such as 'never in a blue moon' or even '12th of never'. Yet geographically some parts of the World like New Zealand or Kamchatka near eastern Russia will not get a full moon until after midnight on Saturday 1st September and so technically will not get a Blue Moon at all this month.
A Blue Moon may have an accompanying drama attached to it but how much astrological significance does it have in itself is debatable. Popular songs have used it as a symbol of loneliness or sadness, the expression 'feeling blue' means low in spirits and a bit maudlin. 'Blue Moon you saw me standing alone, without a dream in my heart...' This Blue Full Moon in Pisces will also have a story to tell.
(Frank Sinatra - Moon in Pisces)
We ask of ourselves and others 'well what is the best course of action, where shall we/I steer this craft, has every stone been investigated?' One big judder. This juddering serves a purpose, and should not be dismissed as ‘flim-flam’ or ‘ditzyness’ or any such other derogotiary term. One thing it does serve is the ‘right hand side of the brain’, that part of us which is non-rational, non-linear, creative and intuitive. Those of you born with the Moon in this sign are probably used to being told you are ‘spacy’, oversensitive, a gentle petal, or wishy-washy, and you may well be at times, but this is not the whole picture. Other sides to Moon in Pisces includes a perceptive and wide ranging mentality, able to pierce the veil and see beyond where 'ordinary' folk stop looking. However, regular as clockwork the moon will meander down the Pisces path every month affecting us all to a greater or lesser extent depending upon our own unique and individual receiving station (our birth chart). The White House has had at least 20 years of Piscean energy in First Lady form.

In addition the Moon is holding hands with Chiron, the wounded healer, it will be conjunct in Pisces. Maybe the Moon is feeling a little blue after all. What essentially this means for us all is that we shall have a period in which to catch our breath and ponder upon what it is that we really want to ‘cure’ and heal in our lives. We may take a glimpse through the veil and wonder at all the new possibilities passing before our minds eye. For ‘whatever ails you’ there is always a cure close to hand, like a dock leaf growing near a stinging nettle, help may be nearer than you think. Perhaps a Blue Moon cocktail (gin, blue curacao and a twist of lemon) or simply a Blue Moon beer, a Blue Moon ice cream or sorbet, sit in a Blue Moon bar or hotel, watch Manchester City FC (quite popular this blue moon) or just watch the night sky and charge your batteries under the amplified lunar beams of blue.
