As the moon disappears from the spring night sky, we experience the Dark Moon. It is the night of stillness, contemplation and banishment.
This Dark Moon coincides with the Super Moon - the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in a supersize appearance of the Full Moon OR the strong energetic influence of the Dark Moon.
Dark Super Moon of April 7th will affect tidal energy and will increase the tides within all bodies of water.
Pay attention to your thirst. You will be surprised to find yourself extra thirsty throughout this day.
Expect an emotional weekend - though not necessarily a dramatic one.
If you are menstruating during this upcoming Dark Moon, this will be a particularly emotional couple of days. I urge you to be very easy on yourself. Spend some time alone, but do not indulge in romantic comedies, as they will heighten unrealistic expectations of your current love life...and may actually make you feel worse. Wait another week!
Do not worry! This depression will lift the morning of April 10th. This is a temporary influence.
The Dark Moon is never a good time to begin a new venture. Wait for the Witch's New Moon, which is the night you can see the very first crescent of the moon.
As Mercury goes Retrograde on April 28th, take the next two weeks to get your life in order. The pre-shadow of Mercury Retrograde will begin before April 28th, therefore I urge you to finish contracts, complete projects and go on any last-minute trips you have been putting off.
If something unpleasant is happening in your life, I urge you to take advantage of this upcoming Dark Moon.
Most spellwork should not be done on the Dark Moon, with the strong exception of banishment work. The night of April 7th will be ideal to remove emotional scars, unwanted situations and people from your life.
Honor yourself. Have the courage to banish the unwanted.
Nourish, nurture and rejuvenate.
All is well.
Love & Magick,
