What is a Dark Moon in Astrology?

Every 29 and a half days, the Moon makes her way around the Earth, dancing through the cosmos and shifting the Sun’s illumination on her as she waxes and wanes. The first half of the lunar cycle is the precursor to the full Moon, a time of building and an outward flow of energy. The second half, leading up to the new Moon, is when energy flows inward and the Moon begins to lose her light. We cannot see the new Moon as she has no light on her. The night before the new Moon brings us many stars but no Moon to light the way. These are the darkest hours of the lunar cycle as well as the most powerful. This time is known as the dark Moon.

What is a Dark Moon in Astrology?

Darkness can be viewed in many ways. We often associate it with negativity or sadness, but it is inherently neither. We assign these attributes to it. A better description would be to associate darkness with an inward pull of energy. Darkness is what we see when our eyes are closed in meditation or before sleeping. It denotes a time when the light is shut out from our consciousness, along with other energies. When we are in darkness, we are with ourselves and our unique energy. It becomes a personal time to travel inward for answers rather than seek them in the external world.

The energy we hold is part of the energy of the cosmos. It all comes from the same source and has evolved into planets, stars, oceans, trees, animals, humans, and so much more. We are connected to everything we see and can’t see through the thread of energy. We are also connected to the past and the future, for energy knows no time. During the darkness of the dark Moon and the new Moon, we can feel into the void that began everything. We can feel the connection between us and the vast energy field that makes up everything. Through this connection, we can reprocess the past, see the future, and feel into our souls. We can gain knowledge about what our souls are here to accomplish and what we truly want for our lives.
