Dateline – Friday, September 30, 2016: Black Moon Rising
We are about to experience a very rare lunar phenomenon…a Black Moon. Simply stated, the Black Moon is a second New Moon in a calendar month. Just like the Blue Moon, a second Full Moon in a month, the Black Moon comes to us as an extra day of oomph.
Everyone has their own interpretation of the Moon phases and how to use them in their personal lives. As this is the first Black Moon we’ve had in awhile, I am choosing to use the energy of this Moon in a special way.
