I am new and I have been spending the past few weeks reading and learning as much as I can. I have read about the different moon phases and what type of spells are best for each phase. I know the blue is a full moon in the same month and it is rare but it is special in terms of casting a spell?
It depends on what you think and what you feel, but the blue moon is supposed to have more energy. I think the blue moon would be the same as a normal full moon in terms of casting a spell, but it would have more energy and maybe help the spell be easier.
I think you should try it, and see for yourself whenever the next blue moon comes.

The name "blue moon" is merely folklore. Every three years, or so, there are two full moons in a month. (one on August 31 this year!).
Normally, there is a full moon 12 times a year.But "time" accumulates; which is why we have Leap Years. Then a full moon will appear twice in the same month.
I don't think it has any more magical significance than any other full moon.Although it may have done in ancient times. Don't forget, the moon's orbit takes 29 days, and there are many months with 31 days! So it is bound to happen every so often.
The only reason we have a "blue moon" is because of our modern calendar, while useful and practical for our society, is really meaningless. If we wanted to be in tune with nature and the universe our months would be based on the moon, weeks on the phases and years on the seasons. But that's just my opinion. If it feels special to you, then do something special.
