A Black Moon occurs when there are two New Moons in a month.
In the Northern Hemisphere there is a Black Moon on the 30th of September 2016.
In the Southern Hemisphere there is a Black Moon on the 31st of October 2016 which also happens to fall on Beltane.
This kind of event happens every few years and the type of magick performed is New Moon magick which is more potent during this time.
Focus on renewals, beginnings, manifestation of desires and foundation of intent for future endeavors, which first must come through letting go and clearing/cleansing during the Dark Moon, 2-3 days prior to the New Moon.
These are the following steps I would suggest you do when working with the Black Moon coming up:
- Remove – obstacles, both mental and physical which have been hindering you.
- Cleanse – energy by completely neutralising/clearing your space and yourself.
- Project – intentions of what you want to bring into your life.
- Create – possibilities for manifestation of desire which can be done through ritualised action such as a spell, meditation etc.
