This Friday, September 30th, the world will experience a somewhat-rare lunar phenomenon: a Black Moon. And while this happens more often than, say, a Super Blood Moon (every 32 months vs. five times in the last 115 years) the Black Moon offers a ~*witchy*~ opportunity to reorder and refresh our lives.
As far as science is concerned, “Black Moon” is simply the name given to a second new moon that rises in a single month; you can’t see it with the naked eye because the side that’s lit up by the sun is facing away from our humble planet. But some Pagan traditions believe that the Black Moon offers special energy that can be channeled into new projects, relationships, and other beginnings.
Want to help get yourself in the right frame of mind to refresh and start anew? Start by pulling out the items that make you feel your very best — whether it’s your perfect jeans, your comfiest old sweatshirt, your freakum dress, or your job interview power outfit.
