AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
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.
