Two Faces But Show You One

I have two faces, but show you one.
I once had guests, but now have none.
I’m rarely bloody and seldom blue.
I’m often promised and sometimes new.

The moon. It has two sides, but on earth we only ever see one side. Man has been on the moon, but no one is there now. A full lunar eclipse is known as a blood moon, and the phrase “once in a blue moon” refers to something that rarely happens. Promising the moon is making an extravagant or impossible promise, and there’s a new moon once every lunar cycle.

Line 1: two sides, but we only see one :P

L2: People visited the moon, but now people are sorta past that :P

L3: Sometimes there is a lunar eclipse, which makes the moon look red. Sometimes, when there are two full moons in one month, it is called a blue moon. :P

L4: To promise the moon means to make an extravagant promise to someone. Every month (usually) there is a new moon.
