Depending on your location, September 2016 could be a special month. In America, there are two new moons in this month: New Moon in Virgo, on September 1st, and New Moon in Libra, on September 30th.  The second occurrence of a new moon in a calendar month is called Black Moon and wiccans consider that a ritual or a spell performed during the Black Moon is more powerful than ever.

In Europe, Asia and Africa, this phenomenon will occur in October (New Moon in Libra, on October 1st, and New Moon in Scorpio, on October, 30th).
