What is “Black moon” ?
Black Moon is a reference to witchcraft which bears no significance to astronomy. There is a range of, often contradictory, definitions of a black moon, some suggesting it is when there are two dark cycles of the moon in any given calendar month, and others where no full moon is present in a calendar month, being contradictory as one can only ever happen in a February, and the other can only ever occur in any other month. It is treated by wicca as a powerful astrological period in which any magical works performed would be more effective.
A black moon can only be visible during the daytime all day.
Black moons can only happen on any month that has 2 new moons.
The 3rd full moon in a season with four full moons is called a blue moon, as described in the Maine Farmers’ Almanac.
In some cultures, individuals whose birthdays fall on or near a harvest moon must provide a feast for the rest of the community.
