Blood Moon

What is Actually Blood Moon meaning?

Blood Moon Full moon sights have always fascinated me ever since I was a child and the in my teens when I would listen to Katy Perry on my iPod and sit on the rooftop for hours looking at the big round majestic ball. The disappearance of it after the 15th night really made me sad and depressing. In my busy routine nowadays, I still find time sometimes to climb to the roof to watch the full moon or just have a glimpse of it while doing dishes in my kitchen.

Muslims around the world have associated several occasions on moon sighting, their annual religious events on several lunatic cycles. Other religions might also have associated certain things with the moon and its cycle but superstitions and myths have always been there either one is Muslim, Hindu, Jew or a Christian.

Since I’ve told my mom that 27th July is the night when we’re going to witness the Red blood moon she has been asking me to be careful as it brings bad luck for the country, leadership and oneself. Although I have told her that it’s a natural and scientific process where the sun comes so close to the moon and it’s kind of a partial eclipse where the moon goes red to orange because lights come from around the Earth. But she along with other elders in my family keep on insisting that these are signs of God.

“And I will show wonders in Heaven above and signs in the Earth beneath, the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.” (Genesis 2:19-20)

There are some people who portray this rare event with an apocalypse and this is the only thing I have felt so far because what if this is an indication of the “End of the World” chills run through my spine every time I think about it but that’s just a myth, a superstition.

Another common myth among the people is that it brings shaking facts for the politicians and leaders of the country. Well, to talk about this, many Middle Eastern, Asian and African country are waiting for their elections to be held and most of them are scheduled right after Blood Moon. Let’s see how myths play here and superstitions take over the hold.

Every region, country, and religion has their specific myths about certain natural and scientific events depicting them as good or evil but since it’s all in God’s hand and we don’t know what His plans are, just enough the full red to orange hue of the Moon and don’t forget to capture the moment.
