In Astrology, there are various kinds of full moons, and each one signifies a different meaning. We’ve got the list and now so do you!
A “supermoon” describes a full moon that is closest to the Earth. Since it’s geographically close, it can appear much bigger in the sky. The spiritual take is that full moons come with a lot of energy. So, that energy is amplified when the moon is even closer to us. Thus, supermoons are said to bring much more drama than a regular full moon.
The “Harvest Moon” is the full moon that rises closest to the fall equinox. Most years it appears in September, which is considered the “Corn Moon.”
A “blue moon” refers to a full moon that occurs two times in one calendar month. This happens every 2 to 3 years. Hence, the phrase, ‘once in a blue moon’.
A “Blood Moon” only happens during a total lunar eclipse. It’s so named for its reddish appearance, which occurs when sunlight is refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere.
