August 2019 Black Moon: What Does It Mean For You?
July 27, 2019 6:00 AM
You've probably heard the phrase "once in a Blue Moon," but how about a Black Moon? Well, a Blue Moon is a rare month when we get two full moons. A Black Moon is the exact opposite, a calendar month with two new moons in it.
🌑 🌒 🌓 🌔 🌕 🌖 🌗 🌘
In case you've forgotten your moon phases, on the left above is a new moon, and of course the full moon is in the middle. Having two new moons in a month is a pretty rare celestial event, it only happens about every 29 months, but the next one is happening soon.
Depending on where you live in the world the date and chance of a new Black Moon might vary, but for most the first new moon of the month will be on August 1, with the Black Moon occurring later in the month on August 30th.
The term Black Moon isn't officially recognised as an astronomical term, but it is commonly used in astrology. Those who practice paganism, including Wiccans, consider a Black Moon to be a special time when their rituals or spells are more powerful and effective. Others believe rituals or workings should not be conducted at these times.
It goes without saying that a Black Moon cannot be observed because by its very definition it is dark as it is completely hidden in the Earth's shadow, which is a shame because this month's new moon will also be a Super Moon. This is when the moon is at its nearest point of its monthly orbit to Earth.
A new moon is symbolic of new beginnings and new energy - some say this means you should expect good fortune. The fact it's a Super Moon means its effects are stronger, so expect double the amount of good fortune. This moon marks the end of Mercury Retrograde which ends on the same day. The new moon is in Leo so expect love, fun and exciting vibes.
