Tonight is the second New Moon in September making it a Black Moon. The Celts and the Druids seen a Black Moon as a time of great changes and an Omen of a big event coming. The Romans and Greeks seen a Black Moon as a symbol of good luck. Take a deep breath. You’ve made it to the Black Moon. The last month has been very hard for many of us but things will start to settle down now and fall into place. When a Black Moon happens it amplifies the effects the Moon usually has over us, our emotions will be heightened, our intuition will be on high alert. It also heightens the magical affects of the Moon which is why this is also known as the Witches Moon, in fact Black Moon isn’t a scientific term at all it comes from ancient Witchcraft.
Tonight’s New Moon is in the constellation of Libra, which represents freedom and liberation. Liberate your mind first and your freedom will follow. Libra reminds you to follow the beat of your own drum. Be unique. Be original. Be who you really are. Take a walk on the weird side of life. You may find a part of yourself that has been begging for expression. This is the Libra New Moon message.
A new cycle is beginning for you. The Libra New Moon can empower you to move in a bold direction. You may break free from bad habits and relationships. You are no longer distracted by fear and doubt. You are ready to be who you were born to be. This is a time of great luck, so go out and try new things, use this lucky time to grow businesses, start new jobs, go to interviews, find a new love.
Change your mind. You change your life. See your challenges from a different perspective. See your challenges as opportunities for growth. They keep your life fresh and lively. Your life can be much freer than you may have realized. In this way, new opportunities will emerge for you. Believe in your dreams coming true. Believe when you wish upon a Star your dreams come true. The Star is shinning on you. The New Moon is lighting up a new path way for you. Perhaps it was there all along and now your eyes are opened.
The Black Moon strengthen the impact for change. This is setting the tone for a new you. Get out of your own way. Move out of your comfort zone. Make bold beginnings. Venus is encouraging you to have a fresh start. Be innovative. Don’t allow the negative ego to hold back your dreams. Listen to your intuition. You intuition is your inner knowledge. Allow your Higher Self to guide you to new relationships and goals. Sudden unexpected opportunities can come to you from out of the blue.
There are new perspectives to be enjoyed now and this Moon reminds us that no matter how far we may have strayed from where we want to be we can always get back there as long as there is hope and the will to move and grow yourself. The Black Moon is a time of releasing and letting go and this New Moon’s energy is going to be giving us that final push in the right direction so that we have the courage, confidence and willpower to sever ties with anything that has been causing us difficulties or to struggle with unnecessary and prolonged emotional pain.
The Black Moon opens a portal to other dimensions. Honoured by Wiccans and various schools of Magic, the Black Moon is a fertile time to connect with spirits and other realms and the planes where the ascended masters walk. It brings a cycle of mystery and magic, even more mystical than any other Moon phases. The double New Moons are associated with higher consciousness, altered states of awareness and hidden wisdom. Use the energy well.
Have a Blessed New Moon and may the Goddess watch over you.
May you all be blessed! Blessed Be!
