The Blood Moon

Updated on April 13, 2015

This Earth’s natural satellite has been an inspiration for 4.5 billion years, since it has been formed from debris after an impact of the Earth and a Mars-sized body, according to the most accepted theory of its creation. The moon fascinates us with its beauty. It is a source for interesting stories and prophecies, but it also awakes a great interest for different kind of studies.

The Latin name for the Moon is Luna from which an adjective lunatic is derived due to beliefs of full Moon’s impact on humans. Some theories say that the Moon has an effect on human behavior because the human body is approximately 75 percent water. Ashtanga yoga practitioners do not do yoga on full and new Moon days. A lot of scientific and experimental theories say that there is no lunar effect because tidal scales inside us are too small to have an influence on human behavior.

Sometimes the moon becomes red instead of usual yellow or white color. This happens during total lunar eclipses. This is when the Earth is between the Moon and the Sun and the sunlight is blocked and, because of the atmosphere, we see the red Moon. There are eight total lunar eclipses between 2001 and 2100 year, and two will take place this year; on April 4 and September 28. A series of four lunar eclipses is called a lunar tetrad and they occur at six month intervals. Occasionally we could see the red Moon even if it is not time of lunar eclipse. It is when the moon is low in the sky, or when there is a lot of dust in the air.

Christian ministers John Hagee and Mark Biltz support a theory about the end of times which is called The Blood Moon Prophecy. It started on April 15, 2014 when the first of four series of total lunar eclipses occurred. The term “blood” is because during the lunar eclipse the Moon becomes red, which is, according to them, the sign or omen for the end of times. The background for their theory is The Book of Joel where is written:

The sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes.

They believe the Jesus will come again on Earth after the last eclipse, which will take place on September 28, 2015.
