New_Moon_PBlack Moon – Definitions

The term BLACK MOON is used by both astrologers and alchemists.   The term relates to one of the following lunar events:

1. A month in which there are 2 New Moons.  
A calendar month usually has 1 New Moon,  but where a 2nd New Moon occurs within the month this is called a BLACK MOON.  This is the most popular definition of a BLACK MOON.  Based on this definition, a BLACK MOON would occur approximately every 30 months.

2. The 3rd New Moon in a season of 4 New Moons
There are usually 3 New Moons within a season, but where a season contains 4 New Moons, the 3rd of 4 New Moons is called a BLACK MOON.   Note that a season is defined as the time period between a solstice & equinox or equinox & solstice.  Based on this definition, a BLACK MOON would occur approximately every 33 months.

3. A month in which there is no New Moon. 
The only calendar month where this can occur is February and hence Jan/March would have 2 New Moons (instead of the usual 1 New Moon).  Based on this definition, a BLACK MOON would occur approximately every 20 years.

4. A month in which there is no Full Moon. 
The only calendar month where this can occur is February and hence Jan/March would have 2 Full Moons (instead of the usual 1 Full Moon).  Based on this definition, a BLACK MOON would occur approximately every 20 years. The next Black Moon by this definition will occur in 2037, while the last one was in 2018

A New Moon is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle.  In addition a BLACK NEW MOON is an auspicious moon that amplifies your intentions & inner-most heartfelt desires for the cycle – a powerful New Moon for alchemy and creative manifestation.
