Black Supermoon July 31, 2019

This is a new one for me! I had never heard of a Black Moon Supermoon before so I though many of my subscribers were as clueless as I was.

Depending on where you are on the earth, the new moon falls on either July 31 or August 1st. There will either be a ‘second’ of two new moons in July or August.

Just as a Blue Moon is the 2nd full moon in one month, the Black Moon is the 2nd new moon. So for those who see the new moon tonight, this will be the Black Moon for you. For those who see the new moon tomorrow (August 1st), the Black Moon will be prior to the 2nd new moon. Clear as mud? haha

This new moon is a Supermoon, which means that it is closer to the earth on its monthly orbit and appears larger.

You will not be able to see this until the first sliver of the new moon is seen — a Black Moon cannot be seen with a naked eye. But for us on the Gulf Coast, or other coastlines around the world, they will see a significant tide change — expect extra-large spring tides because of the force of the extra-close moon.

When there is no light on the moon, it is totally black and that is the phase between the waning and the waxing of the moon. The new moon sliver will announce the new moon being ‘born again’, coming back to the cycle to wax to quarter, the to full, then to wane to quarter and then to none.

Each new moon begins a new ‘month’ on the Hebraic calendar that started in the Book of Genesis. That month will begin at sundown August 1st and is called the month of Av. The month of Av has both the most tragic dates (9th of Av) on the calendar and the most happy date on the calendar (15th of Av). The historical site I use to find thing in Jewish History is aish.com/dijh. I will write more about those dates as we draw nearer.

Currently we are in the Season of the Dire Straits on the Hebraic Calendar. This is a 3-week period of time between the 17th of Tammuz to the 9th of Av. More on this blog from last year.
