There’s a Super Black Moon coming and if you live in North America, you will be able to do some star gazing and see it.
This new Moon is the second of two July 2019 new Moons. In some time zones, it’s the first of two August 2019 new Moons.
On July 31 (11:12 P.M. ET) and August 1, 2019 (3:12 UTC). the Super Black Moon will be in the Zodiac sign of Leo and will show in our sky. This will have all the Zodiac signs in emotional overdrive.
Energy is high during a Super Moon. You may feel more emotional, electric, experience sleep disturbances or even have too expressive dreams. You will also find that your intuition is higher, the more pronounced synchronicity and you could become more distant or sensitive.
You get a Black Moon at least once a year, and sometimes twice. However, if we go by the standard “two new Moons in one month” definition, Black Moons become slightly more rare, occurring about every 32 months (two to three years).
Like all new Moons, it’ll cross the sky with the Sun during the day. Humans can’t see the new Moon in the Sun’s glare.
During the new Moon phase, the Moon is not illuminated by the Sun and seems to disappear from the night sky. A new Moon is practically invisible to the naked eye.
There are four quarters of the Moon—the Moon phases. There’s usually a new moon and a full Moon about once a month, because the Moon takes about a month to orbit Earth.
During the “full Moon,” the entire disk of the Moon is illuminated by the Sun because they are on opposite sides of the sky.
In contrast, the “new Moon” has its dark side facing us. It’s not reflecting any of the Sun’s light because the Moon is lined up between the Earth and Sun.
These are the fun facts of a Super Black Moon but don’t call it a “Bad Moon Rising” because I don’t see trouble on the way. That’s another tale for a different day.
Now this song is stuck in my head:
Enjoy the music and the sky!
