How will the blue moon affect each Zodiac sign on Halloween?
The moon plays a crucial role this Halloween. Halloween’s full moon is called a blue moon because it’s the second full moon of the month. In 2020, it just happens to fall on Halloween. “Aside from offering a perfect backdrop for all the witches and goblins, this full moon is a game-changer,” astrologer Heidi Rose Robbins tells Reader’s Digest. “At the exact moment of the full moon, the moon falls in the exact same degree as Uranus. Uranus is the planet of change, freedom, and reinvention. It shakes us up and creates the opportunity for us to break out of old patterns in our lives. It asks us to wake up! So, this blue moon is a great awakener and opens the door to change for each sign of the zodiac.” Here are 10 spooky facts you never knew about the moon.
