In Friday night’s sky (Sept. 30) the Heavens will host to a somewhat unusual lunar event, something that happens every 32 months. The Black Moon.

What is a Black Moon? Is it a warning? A sign for our “prophesied inevitable” doom? Is “Apocalypse” near?

Well NO! Black Moon, a term introduced and used mostly by followers of the New Age and Wicca is not the Beginning of our undoing as hardcore preacher doomsayers try to convince us. 'Black Moon Rising' may sound like the title of an apocalyptic sci-fi film but the astronomical event is far more simple. Black moon is  a second new moon in a single month. How Can we see the Black Moon?  At its “new moon” phase, the moon is always black hence it is not visible. It happens at that time of the month when the moon passes through the same part of the sky as the sun and as such, the moon's dark or unilluminated side faces Earth. So there really is nothing to see. With the term “Black Moon” we also define : 1. The third new moon in a season of four new moons 2. A calendar month without a new moon 3. A calendar month without a Full Moon The asteroid Lilith So apparently this is just another New Moon. This one in particular though, has some extra power in deed. Why? Because its the first New Moon after the Eclipses which have shaken the Earth with all these changes. A New Moon in Libra signifies a new era in Diplomacy and international relations as well as personal ones.
