Rare black moon expected in Australia tonight

Australia will experience a lunar phenomenon tonight – and astrologer Natasha Weber explains what this rare celestial event means to you.

Have you ever heard of a black moon? Although it sounds ominous, it is not an official astronomical term. Yet, a black moon corresponds to the Gregorian calendar and the seasons, and holds powerful astrological significance.

What is a black moon?

The most common definition of a black moon it is when there is a second new moon in a single calendar month. And because black moons vary with time zone differences, some places experience black moons on different dates than others.

Typically, each lunar cycle lasts about a month and features a new moon and a full moon. But every 29 months or so we get a dark moon.

When is the black moon?

On May 30 at 9:30 p.m. AEST, Australia can expect its first black moon since August 30, 2019, when there was a black moon in Virgo. However, this time our dark moon will be in Gemini. After that, Australia’s next black moon isn’t expected until December 31, 2024 in Capricorn.

The second type of black moon is rarer, occurring approximately every 33 months. Each season usually has three New Moons, but when there are four New Moons in Summer, Fall, Winter, or Spring, the third New Moon is called a Black Moon.

Why is a black moon invisible?

Forget seeing the black moon, though. Unfortunately, it’s not a visual feast because a black moon occurs when the moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and during this lunar phase only the far side of the moon’s face is illuminated. The exception to this would be if the dark moon was also a solar eclipse.

A black moon has astrological significance

In astrology, new moons are auspiciously associated with new beginnings. Astrologers always recommend starting a business, starting a project, or starting a relationship on a new moon.

But what does it mean when there are two new moons in a calendar month? Then this second new moon, or black moon, doubles your fresh start quota. So you could get two big new opportunities or a double whammy of second chances.

But there is a little more than that. The zodiac sign hosting the dark moon plays a role in the type of new opportunities that may present themselves. And this time, because the black moon of May is in silver tongue Gemini, there is a strong emphasis on communication and not self-care. For this reason, the twins will be most affected by the May black moon, and due to the mathematical placement of Gemini on the zodiac wheel, Sagittarians, virginsand Pisces also have a unique connection to the astrological influences of this dark moon.

Here’s what you can expect

Revisiting past failures during the dark moon will help you move forward on a new and improved path. Yet, because Gemini is a dualistic sign, there may be a fork in the road or a decision to make before galloping off to greener pastures. It’s not easy to muster up the courage to try something again that didn’t work out the last time. Yet this dark moon promises a brighter outcome the second time around if you’re willing to break away from old worn-out habits, self-destructive habits, and patterns of behavior that have lost their usefulness.

Your sun sign, especially your rising signoffers deeper insight into how this dark moon affects you personally.

Aries and Aries Ascendant

Clear communication is your key to opening new doors. You usually don’t mince words, Aries, so say what you mean and mean what you say! However, don’t let go of the first thing that pops into your head. Think carefully about the point you want to make and jot down a few notes before having that crucial conversation.

Taurus and Taurus Ascendant

The May Black Moon prioritizes what’s most important. Previously, you may have prioritized work, to the detriment of your health. Or maybe indulge in excess sugar and alcohol

has become your number one vice. But instead of blaming yourself, commit to putting the things and people that matter most at the top of your list.

Gemini and Gemini rising

How do you present yourself to the world, Gemini? Is your professional image crying out for an overhaul or is there something about your appearance that doesn’t satisfy you? Chances are you’ve already attempted a makeover, and this Dark Moon is refining what’s already been started. Yet this week you will realize that outer beauty always begins as inner work.

Cancer and Cancer Rising

This is the perfect time to deepen your spiritual interests. You may have tried yoga, but found it too difficult. Or maybe you intended to stick to a regular meditation practice, but never found the time. This dark moon inspires your inner world, giving anything with a metaphysical twist another red light.

Lion and Rising Lion

Friendships are highlighted during the May dark moon for you, Leo. Either you regret having argued or being away from a loved one, or you need it! Kissing and making up are the order of the day if having this person in your life is in your best interest. But if a parasitic pal is dulling your shine, the dark moon is sure to show him the door.

Virgo and Ascending Virgo

The May Black Moon gives you a second chance to make your professional mark. Do you have your eye on a promotion, but lack the confidence to put yourself first? Now is the time to fire your shot. And if a startup never really took off, the dark moon invites you to pick up where you left off.

Libra and rising Libra

This black moon puts wind under the wings of delayed travel plans. Whether bad timing, work responsibilities, or a hole in your financial bucket have kept you from escaping your daily grind, the May Black Moon remedies whatever is holding you back. Education is also highlighted, putting formal study or a short course at the top of your agenda.

Scorpio and Scorpio Ascendant

Settle a problematic money matter, as the May Black Moon helps you overcome a financial burden. Rather than burying your head in the sand, seek professional advice on how to clean your slate and grow your money tree. This dark moon supports paying bills and dealing with debts. Once you’ve done this, you’ll be in a better position to thrive financially.

Sagittarius and Sagittarius Ascendant

Relationships are in the spotlight during this dark moon, but they don’t have to be romantic. A business partnership can finally take off – and fly high! Alternatively, marriages on the brink of disaster can turn things around to a stronger, more committed team than ever before. And the same can be said for de facto couples.

Capricorn and Capricorn Ascendant

On the health side, this dark moon gets you back on track, whether you’ve burned the candle at both ends or deprived yourself of your restful sleep. On a more serious note, Goats struggling with a complex health issue are encouraged not to give up, as the May Dark Moon guides you to a new practitioner or healthcare professional with a fresh perspective.

Aquarius and Aquarius Ascendant

You might be tempted to reconnect with an old flame if you don’t deal with the residual emotions. But you can sort out your feelings without really getting in touch with your ex. The May Black Moon suggests writing a letter and ceremonially burning it to put the past firmly behind you. This ritual invites renewed passion into your existing relationship (if you are one) and the promise of new love if you are single.

Pisces and Pisces Ascendant

The May black moon brings a change in your surroundings. Interrupted home renovations can finally continue with a renewed vision and purpose. And the young fish preparing to leave the nest make their way during this dark moon. Follow your instincts when it comes to a family issue; they are there.
