The Moons of Ceres 1st Ceres / 8th August – 28th Ceres / September 4th 2016
Aug 18th: Abundant Moon. (For the Celestial Mother).
Sept 1st: Dark Moon. (For the Great Mother).
– Crescent Moon. (For the Holy Daughter).
In the next Sacred Month of Abalon due to the secular month Black Moon 1st and 30th September 2016
The Black Moon rising on Friday September 30, means the month will be closing with its second very dark night. In fact, the first new moon actually took place on the first of the month, which means September 2016 will be bookended by darkness.
Though the name sounds ominous, according to Space.com, the term Black Moon simply refers to the rare occurrence of two new moons in a single month [secular month].
Thealogically, I think that the absence of a Crescent Moon (For the Holy Daughter) is not a good sign for the month as far as a devotional Rite is concerned.
