Blue Moon Rises Bringing Important Wishing Occasion
Once in a blue moon…
As with most, if not all old sayings, this one too has ancient supernatural roots that have thankfully come to light just in time for the blue moon on July 31.
In other words, things that you wish would happen more often but don’t happen in the general business of ongoing life. The blue moon, itself a change in the usual order of business, can bring about a rare exception, just as the saying suggests.
It’s a fact that was recently brought to light here on the site by a survivor named Ravenwillow. And further research into the matter validates her experience and reveals long tradition of wishing on the blue moon. (Just one of many tips and contributions made by survivors here on the site that keep me keeping on as a supernatural survivalist.)
Don’t let the moon set on this excellent wishing opportunity! Read on and get ready to make your own blue moon wish.
How To Wish On a Blue Moon 3 Easy Steps
1. Select Your Blue Moon Wish Wisely
Whether it’s a genie in a lamp or a leprechaun-owned wishing well this is always good advice. However in the case of a blue moon, it’s not a matter of be careful what you wish for! life-or-death.
No, in this case it’s just a matter of maximizing the blue moon potential by understanding the nature of the blue moon. As the second full moon in a single month, blue moons are rare but regular and predictable occurrences – but not in and of themselves supernatural events despite their ability to temporarily suspend the usual order of business in the world.
Your wish should reflect this. It’s not an occasion to wish for something that has never happened before. It’s an occasion to wish for something you wish would happen again.
2. Write Your Wish In Stone
Your cave wall would be an ideal place. At least that’s what the ancients did. Granted this used to be easier. If you no longer live in a cave, find a smooth rock or stone and write on it with a decent marker instead.
Just make sure your rock is big enough – or your wish small enough – to fit on the stone you select or you could end up with only half a wish, in other words a wish that almost-but-not-quite comes true. And research shows the only thing worse than not hitting that home run in the ninth inning of a tie game with loaded bases is almost-but-not-quite making that epic catch in the ninth inning of a tie game with loaded bases.
3. Bury Your Blue Moon Wish Rock
Two key words here, timing and location.
First, the rock must be buried at the height of the blue moon. Normally this means when the moon reaches its fullest height and certainly if you suspect that you are a Blue or Silver Werewolf you need to be aware of this. But for blue moon wishing, the key timing here is precisely midnight on the last day of the month.
What if you bury it well before midnight? While reportedly not optimal, research reveals that a before-midnight wish-rock burial is not wholly ineffective like an after-midnight wish burial. So erring on the side of caution here is not out of the question. If you can’t make a midnight date with the blue moon, better to make it before than after.
Anywhere the moonlight falls will work. Now this gets tricky if it’s a cloudy night. Tricky but not not devastating. Not if you pick your location with careful observation and weather research well in advance of the blue moon.
Now I’m not saying there aren’t other valid ways to wish on the blue moon but the research suggests if you follow these three steps your wish has historically corroborated odds of coming true. We can quibble about numbers all day, whether that means 99.98 or 99.00 percent – and I freely admit to not testing my research yet – but hey, wouldn’t this time be better spend in preparing for the blue moon instead? Nothing here involves burying a dead animal or risking your eternal soul or inviting a maliciously playful fey being into your life forever. And you don’t need a whole wishing team. So where’s the risk?
I know I’ll have my wish ready.
