Plenty of folks swear that Earth's moon has an influence over people. It's not unlikely to hear someone credit a full moon with unexplained, bizarre behavior. As a new parent, you might be wondering about how the Blue Moon affects your baby, because there are two scheduled for this year. What's more? This year marks a (potentially) once in a life time opportunity to witness a truly unique lunar event. On January 31, a trifecta of factors will result in a Super Blue Blood Moon. Now if that didn't get your stellar senses tingling, I don't know what will.
Chances are your baby won't be caught in your backyard howling at the night sky at the sight of a blue moon, but this rare lunar occurrence could have some sway over mood, according to astrology experts. "This Blue Moon, which simply means it's the second full moon in a month, is also a Supermoon, meaning it's closest to earth this year, and it's also a total lunar eclipse," astrologer Suzie Kerr Wright tells Romper in a recent interview via email. "This particular Super Blue Blood Moon is powerful because, in astrology, the moon rules our emotions — and when it is activated by so many events, we become 'activated', too." This doesn't just apply to adults who are in tune with the universe either.
