A blue moon has a history of portending luck. Superstition believes that if you plant the seeds of long term goals during a blue moon occurrence then there is big chance of the goal blossoming in future.

This is due to the belief that blue moon contains magical properties. When you plan anything and initiate it under the full glow of the second full moon of the month, it is believed that there is a kind of psychic tidal pull influencing it.
