The Dark of the Moon

The Dark of the Moon has begun for this month, the 3 - 3 1/2 day slice of time when the Moon has moved too close to the Sun to reflect any light -- and so the night-time hours contain no moonlight at all. Except for the light from the more visible stars, the darkness is complete. It certainly helps you appreciate the Moon's presence when it returns. But for now ... it's a time of mystery and magic.

The Dark of the Moon lasts until the Moon is no longer dark (surprise, surprise!!) ... until that first sliver of light appears in the sky. It will be most visible just after sunset when the Sun's light no longer overpowers the small slice of visible moonlight.

Thoughts on The Dark of the Moon

The New Moon is a special monthly event. The days surrounding it bring closure and renewal, releasing old efforts and energy ... and gathering new intentions, projects & plans.

As much as possible, use the four days surrounding every New Moon -- the three before and the one that comes after for meditation, reflection, releasing and planning. To Astrologers, mystics and others, these days are the Dark of the Moon. There is no visible moon in the sky ... or no visible moon to speak of.

As the Sun and Moon align (which is what forms the New Moon every month), the psychological energy around us slows down, gets quiet and invites us to turn inward to the center where intuition and feelings reside. Here we get a better take on what's going on in our lives, what we need ... and what we want next. We can heal what needs to be mended and gather our strength for the next leg of the journey.

Dark Moon in Cancer

In a few hours we'll move into the Dark of the Moon in Cancer ... moving on toward the New Moon in Leo on July 31. That's turning into a pretty momentous day. The New Moon in Leo -- a Black Moon -- the second New Moon this month forms late that night.

The good news is ... this lines us up for a much different, much better experience with the Leo transits next month, as the parade of personal planets march triumphantly through that dramatic, joyful sign ... and meet the trines to Jupiter in Sagittarius.

Cancer interests focus on inner emotions, safety and security concerns, home and family interests, and our connections to and memories of the past.

It can be moody and sentimental. It can bring us a lot of issues we need to resolve -- or at least make more progress on to find closure. It can be fretful and anxious. It can be easily depressed if your imagination takes you wandering down the dark corridors of your history.

* Black Moon, Dark Moon, New Moon -- Ok, let's get this sorted out ---> Three names, three things ---> You've certainly heard the term New Moon applied to that part of the Moon's cycle when a small sliver of light appears in the western sky at dusk ... and gradually begins filling in over the next two weeks to reach the glorious display of the Full Moon before diminishing down to nothing again. Moon-watchers of all ages -- and maybe you are one -- enjoy this free celestial show every month.

* Feeling and Healing -- in the Dark of the Moon ---> Welcome to The Dark of the Moon ---> We all know the shifting shapes and different phases of the Moon as it travels through the sky every month -- from the sickle-shape of the Crescent Moon to the full round dinner plate magnificence of the Full Moon.

* Wishin' and Dreamin' in the Dark of the Moon -- When the dark nights invite us to turn inward ---> Three nights of darkness ---> To Astrologers, Wiccans and others, the Dark of the Moon is the term describing the period of about three days just before and after the New Moon every month. It's the time when the final crescent of light fades on the left ... and before the thin crescent of the New Moon appears again on the right. It's what happens when The Moon is positioned so that from Earth we can see no reflected sunlight from it.

In the Dark of the Moon -- Where it all begins ---> Yeah, I know it's not the Dark of the Moon but do you know how boring those pictures are? ---> Make a note ---> The Dark of the Moon is the segment of time that covers the three days surrounding the monthly appearance of the New Moon. At the Dark of the Moon, the Moon has moved into a position so close to the Sun it's no longer able to reflect sunlight -- and the Moon appears to be totally gone from the sky.

From the Blogs, Ezines & Elsewhere

From EDA: The Dark of the Moon ---> Everyday Astrology April 21, 2020 The Dark of the Moon ---> The Dark of the Moon is the 2 1/2 day period that comes every month before the arrival of the New Moon ... for that Zodiac sign. Some Astrologers call it the "dead" Moon. Ok, that may be descriptive, but it sure sounds ominous -- and hardly poetic. Whereas the Dark of the Moon sounds ... well, mysterious and intriguing.

The Dark of the Moon -- and the Dark Side of the Moon -- Virtually the same words -- but two different things ---> Perspective ---> While making notes tonight for an article I'm writing about the New Moon in astrology, I was struck by how much our perspective always shapes our thoughts, ideas, perceptions & speech. (This is actually kind of a Mercury topic, seen from a Very Virgo angle. Perhaps it's also interesting that we're right in the middle of the New Moon in Virgo ...
