m A Black Moon occurs when there are two dark cycles of the moon in any given calendar month. It is believed that the second dark moon is a time of great power within the spiritual world and any magic worked during this time is especially powerful. m


M The Moon orbits the Earth in an elliptical path, with one side of the path closer to the Earth than the other. The point closest to the Earth is called the perigee, while the point farthest from the Earth is known as the apogee.  When a full moon coincides with the Moon’s position at the apogee, it is referred to as a Micro Moon or a Mini Moon. Sometimes also called an Apogee moon, a micro moon looks approximately 14 percent smaller and around 30 percent less brighter than a super moon.  The last micro full moon occurred on November 28, 2012 and the next one will occur on January 16, 2014. Old wives tales and folklore accounts suggest that full moons and micro moons affect human mental health and bring on natural disasters.  M


M The distance of the moon from the Earth varies throughout the month and year. The moon's position furthest away from Earth is called apogee while its closest approach to Earth is referred to as perigee. These events do not regularly coincide with the phases of the moon. However, it can happen that the moon is at perigee during the phase of full moon. This event is referred to as Super Full Moon, when the moon is the largest and brightest.  The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the super moon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.  The next one is August 10 2014.
