The fourth day saw the material creation finished (for on the fifth and sixth days it was only the furnishing and peopling of the earth with living creatures). The sun, moon, and stars completed the work, and they were to give light upon the earth which had been created, and to rule over the day and over the night (Genesis 1:14-19).

Four is the number of the great elements—earth, air, fire, and water.

Four are the regions of the earth—north, south, east, and west.

Four are the divisions of the day—morning, noon, evening, and midnight. Or in our Lord’s words, when He speaks of His coming at evening, midnight, cock-crowing, or in the morning (Mark 13:35). We are never to put off His coming in our minds beyond tomorrow morning.

Four are the seasons of the year—spring, summer, autumn, and winter.

Four are the great variations of the lunar phases.

It seems like this would actually fit in with a new moon also and a special sign ( something out of the ordinary ) like the star the wise men detected .

Well..., if you’re trying to say that there is some significance to the Blue Moon and numerology in the Bible and/or something else... (that I just don’t know about) — then it’s simply too esoteric for me... unfortunately.... :-)

At least (for me, anyway) the Bible is not too esoteric and I do gain a lot from it. But, then again, I don’t engage in numerology, either, when studying the Bible...
