I know. It's not the Dark of the Moon,
but it does look appropriately spooky.

Dark of the Moon

As the Moon nears the threshold of Pisces where it will enter its dark phase in a few hours, the mood -- and the whole country -- has reached a place of solitude, waiting and watching. It's the week-end, fortunately, although maybe for some that means a few days & nights of wild parties & close socializing. This time though, they might want to think twice. Illness and death walk the land, relentless & quiet.

It gets your attention.

The Dark Moon in Pisces preparing for the New Moon in Aries have got to be the most yin days of the year. The Dark Moon is already a time of stillness & reflection, & Pisces is feminine, mutable, water. It doesn't get more receptive than that. In its wisdom the Cosmos has arranged for this to be a time to stay home, consult your intuition ... and take care of yourself.

* What is the Dark of the Moon? -- When the Night's Moon Fades to Black ---> When the night brings no moonlight at all -- The Dark of the Moon refers to that phase in the Moon's monthly cycle when the Sun and Moon are so closely aligned there is no reflected light from the Sun available to shine from the Moon's surface.

* The Dark of the Moon -- A time of magic and creation ---> All things begin in mind. Everything in the world originated in the nebulous intellectual energy of an idea, a dream, a desire. These next few days are the time to be setting those into motion in your life ... in the realm of thought where all creation happens.

The Dark of the Moon

Folklore calls it The Dark of the Moon -- for obvious reasons. It's the period in the Moon's monthly cycle when it's not visible in the sky. The Moon is moving to align exactly with the Sun. Visually, it's lost in the Sun's glare ... and the angle is wrong for any reflection. The other side of the Moon is lit up, bright and full, of course, but we can't see that.

As far as we're concerned, the Moon has disappeared for a while ... leaving the night in total darkness. It's a time that lasts about 3 1/2 days, from the time the last light of the old Moon disappears until the reassuring sliver of light appears on the right -- that familiar crescent curve ... in the hours right before sundown.

* 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.
