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.

It began about 1:30 AM last night (Mountain Time) -- August 28 -- and will continue until some 24 - 36 hours after the New Moon forms in Virgo on August 30 ... at 4:37 AM (Mountain Time again.)

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.

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, and about an hour later Mercury comes out of retrograde in Cancer ... and starts heading forward again.

This will finally bring an end to all this heavy Cancer emphasis this year (and its challenges from the Saturn / Pluto conjunction in Capricorn.)

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.
