Here's What You Need To Know About The Rare Black Moon On Friday, September 30th!

Are you ready for a cosmic shift of epic proportions? You'd better be, because such a shift is approaching, courtesy of our moon! This Friday, September 30th, the moon will be new but 'black.' During a black moon, the side of Earth's natural satellite lit by the sun faces away from our planet. As a result, the moon appears very dark in our night sky. Doomsday proclaimers believe this to be some sort of apocalyptic event. In reality, a black moon appears every 32 months. It's fairly common, as far as astrological events go.

That doesn't mean it's not significant, mind you. Au contraire; a black moon is supersignificant. Here's what you can expect.

#1 – Expect The Darker Side Of Humanity To Appear.

In other words, prepare to witness the darker side of yourself and those around you. Feelings such as hatred and envy will be quite prominent on Friday the 30th. Try not to get too overwhelmed by this. A look at the dark side of humanity can actually bring quite a few benefits. By taking such a look, you can gain a more accurate picture of who you are. Once you've got that picture, you can take the necessary steps towards becoming your best self.

#2 – Expect Your Gender Identity To Shift.

Carl Jung pioneered the idea of the 'anima.' This concept refers to the innate ability of both men and women to display characteristics associated with the opposite gender. For example, the anima in men refers to a male's feminine side. Astrologists credit the black moon with awakening one's anima. This does not mean you'll be attracted to members of your own sex on Friday the 30th. In fact, it has nothing to do with sexual orientation at all. All it means is that, if you identify as male you will feel very in touch with your feminine side as a result of the black moon and vice versa. This can be a great time to explore yourself. If you're in a relationship, it might help you better relate to your partner.

#3 – Expect An Increase In Creativity.

This Friday the 30th, you can expect a major boost in creative drive and ambition. A few great ways to make use of this include journaling, painting or songwriting. Who knows, you just might end up with a deep, thoughtful piece of work you're super proud of!
