This Thursday (1/30/2014) is a Blue Moon- the second New Moon in less than 30 days for January 2014. Next month February there will not be a New Moon so make the most of this one. (March 1, 2014 will be another New Moon when Mercury goes retrograde)
Blue Moons carry with them special energy for magic, mayhem and manifestations. New Moons are a good time to pray for new starts and new beginnings. This Blue Moon in the sign of Aquarius which is an air sign and rules our minds and thoughts, innovations and inventions, computers and electronics, friends and enemies, and occult sciences and telepathy.
If you did not make your New Years’ resolutions or wishes for this year, then you are given a second chance. Lucky for some.
According to The Old Way of Tradition, the second New Moon to appear in the same calendar month is called the Black Moon, and any magick worked during this period is deemed to be extremely powerful as well. Of course, the chances of two New Moons falling within one calendar month are just the same as two Full Moons, but because New Moons are generally invisible, most people tend not to notice when a month has two of them.
An example of a prayer/mantra to use for a blue/black moon magic:
“Money, money come to me
In abundance three times three
May I be enriched in the best of ways
Harming none on its way
This I accept, so mote it be
Bring me money three times three!”.
