Beware of Lion’s Roar in the Darkness: Black Moon 2019

Black Moon 2019

New Moon in Leo

July 31, 2019

By Maharani Rutan©

Behold! Surrender to the darkness!

As the skies become dark and our visions blurred, we must now surrender to endings. For many who follow the Vedic Philosophies, this is not a time to begin anything but to get rid of the cutter that no longer serves our purposes. Read more about the new moon meanings here. Thus, it will not be surprising if there exists the potentials of struggles or misinterpretations 5 days before and after this magnificent moon.

Hence, this is not an ordinary moon. This is the black moon of the century. Though there was a black moon in 2018, there will not be another until 2020, hence in the States in 2033. This phenomenon usually occurs under various circumstances and definitions. First, the black moon will be in North America in July while it will be in August for Europe. Additionally, there are two moons within the span of a month, as we had a new moon in Cancer during the Solar eclipse (read more here) and the new moon in Leo this month (July 31/Aug 1).

The new moon in Leo will become voided at 11:12pm Est and 8:12pm PST. But one of the most positive sides is that the relief finally arrives for those that have been taken hostage by Mercury retrograde. But remember, I have not started to sing yet and there will still be residue of glitches and miscommunication until August 15, 2019 .

This moon comes with wisdom and peace. Our dealings with others are changing before our eyes and they always carry encouraging things. Even though the new moon and black moon may be considered ominous, for the Pagans this would be considered an ideal time for magic and worship.

Defiantly, magic will be embraced again. As mentioned in my predictive blog of 2019, the 2000 and 2008 periods are repeating again. Many of the scenarios were discussed regarding 2000 and 2019 parallels during the Total Solar Eclipse and Partial Lunar Eclipse. However, there are a few things to note. As many Americans tuned in to watch the Muller questioning one of the key points regarded Hilary Clinton and information about leaking emails. It was in 2000 when she was elected to the US Senate. I believe there is more to come. Perhaps the impeachment of President Trump may not happen this year, but it is questionable if some turn of events could cause issues for the future.

It is up to us to finally sit back and watch events unfold and spend some quality time with our family. Leo’s love their family and new things, and this placement comes with a beautiful surprise for Leo’s. The void of moon will affect all early born Leos between 0-4 degrees depending upon the orb. Including those who have Leo anywhere in their charts and fire signs (Aries, and Sagittarius) by association.

The New Moon allows many of us to look at life in a new way and allow the soothing influence and wisdom to create new beginnings through letting go. The energy is just right to make the adjustments that are necessary to emancipate ourselves from the baggage and bondage of things that cause us pain and heartache.

The easiest way to begin this process is to get rid of clutter. For example, look at that shirt which will never fit you, it’s really outdated and even at the shoulders it may be collecting dust. There is an old saying if you have not worn it in 6 months, then do you really think you are going to wear it in the next 6 months? The answer is simple; no. Sometimes holding onto the past is not always good for the soul as we prevent ourselves from moving forward. The heart is allowing your predispositions to indicate the time to make changes and say, “I am what I am”.

The New Moon supports all endings to begin new projects, appearances, and spirits. Even if there is disappointment that the shirt does not fit anymore, there should be none as learning what works and what does not is the key element to the new moon.

The Leo moon brings with its purpose, magnetism and governance. This will be predisposed by affectionate, yearning, and contentment where ingenuity, truthfulness, and kindness will be lionized. This is the best time to look for close relationships, bring peace to your relationships, or simply walk away without hurting each other.

But be aware, for some of you Saturn in Sagittarius (per VPAT) is not going to treat you kindly, especially if you are Taurus, Libra, or Sagittarius. However, it will be shining brightly for Leo, Aquarius, and Scorpio. No matter how difficult it may seem for Taurus, Cancer, Capricorn, and Pisces right now, this is one of the most auspicious times to plant seeds as Jupiter (planet of expansion) will highlight you until November 2019.

Nevertheless, with Rahu and Ketu in Gemini/Sagittarius and Jupiter in Scorpio, I would not be surprised if Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Aries may feel a bit confused and may even be prone to accidents. As far as Leo’s, they are simply along for the ride.

The Leo moon often leads people to feel that they must be the center of attention and require frequent attention; without it they often may have irrational behavior patterns. This could be in the form of being aggressive or melodramatic, creating love or clashes. On the other hand, Leo’s often praise people and give confidants credit when they need it. They are great supporters and people pleasers that bring out self-assurance and bravery in others. They are also very family-oriented where motherly figures are seen as very modest people and they hold the uniqueness, sociability, and gifts from their mothers or a motherly figure.

The Leo energy can sometimes be the source for one to be more compulsive, persistent, honored, provoked, narcissistic, self-centered, or patronizing. The more warmth, sympathy, and support are practiced during the new moon phase, the more idealism will come of it.

The moon in Leo is Feisty, Brave, Studied, Talented, and Systematized AND ERRATIC.

Therefore, for Leo’s, my suggestions and predictions are listed below. Outside of Leo energy, it is best to combine the Solar Eclipse and Lunar Eclipse predictions including Mercury retrograde, giving a glimpse of what can be expected during this time. Please note that all predictions and advice is based on VPAT calculations and not to be mistaken for pure Western or Eastern Astrological philosophies. For anyone other than Leo’s your combination of both Solar and Lunar eclipse and Mercury retrograde predictions will give you a picture of what is coming up for you in the next 6 months.


Dearest Leo, this year may have felt like a roller coaster ride for you. As you have moved away from your eclipse in January, it is now time for you to plant the seeds of tomorrow. Although it may seem that it is a never-ending battle for you, you will soon find out that any differences you have had with people will straighten themselves out in late fall or by the end of this year. You will find that there may be plenty of changes in your family structure by the end of the year, and I would not be surprised if there are spiritual happenings in your home in the early part of December. But be warned that personal relationships will not be up to par, or perhaps even a bit boring, but that does not mean you should be arrogant. This will only cause separation or deep wounds. Try not to travel too far away from home at the end of the year. With Mercury being retrograde in your sign you may not see any real relief until the end of the year, at which time your personal and career life may soar. There may even be so much pressure at work that you may be advised or pressured to leave your position. Take care with your finances and your health in the fall as the change of seasons and loans coming due may cause you to feel fatigue. If this the case then please slow down, otherwise you may have minor accidents that could otherwise be avoided. Education and family relations may not get better until the end of the year but hold on tight as wonders are coming for you.

Saturn – Saturn has not really changed much for you since January’s Eclipse in your sign (read more here). There will be some mixed results due to this transit. Education, new business, and relationships are bound to get better. There is the possibility of a job change and or a promotion which you never anticipated. The only concern here is that you need to be sure not to overspend.

Ketu – Now that Ketu is Sagittarius, this transit has a lot to do with past life and things that are egotistical and selfish. If you are a parent, you may worry a lot about your children and if you are attending school or training of any kind, that too will cause worries. Financial and career issues remain to be a roller coaster, leading you to have unnecessary digestive and heart issues, so please take care.

Rahu – As it has moved into Gemini, you are being blessed. You will find that building a business will go well for you. You may even find an investor or someone that can guide you in the right direction. However, do not expect the same with aging adults in your family as you may not find the support you need. Most of all, definitely be warned against get rich quick schemes.

Uranus – You are one of the lucky ones; for the next 7 years your career life will soar and do not be surprised if fame and recognition is on your side. But then again, you may even change careers which will help you to follow your passion rather than settling.

Jupiter – There has not been too much movement of Jupiter since January’s Eclipse, however, some issues may be concerning. Doubts may force enormous transformation for you. There may be some interpersonal and work-related relationship issues. There could also be feelings of loneliness and isolation during this time.

Mars – Even though Mars transits are usually 90 days, know that your worries may be a little depressing and perhaps finances are a little bit tight right now. Stay clear of conflicts and be vigilant as you may not have that many supporters which could lead to false accusations or legal issues. You may also find that people are not respecting you as they normally do but remember, as soon as Mars leaves after August 12 you will find this slowly diminishes.

Maharani’s Advice

Dear Leo, you have no idea what is in store for you, but if you mope you will realize that all that wasted time doing it could have been spent focusing on your dreams and passion. It’s time for you to learn and be the best you can be, as we pass Mercury retrograde you will see career opportunities are endless. Do not ignore even minor sickness as it will blow up into something bigger than it need to be, especially in the fall. Be careful with your legs and eat healthy as past issues can crop up at any time. But around the time of this new moon, be careful to put differences aside and make no decisions until after the retrogrades are over. Ego, assertiveness, dominating, controlling, and obsessiveness will not get you far.

It is my suggestion that all those that have Leo in their charts purchase a green candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lemon oil or Lavender oil and chant Psalm 65. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle.

Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, reaching the desired result is contingent on upon the value of determination. Never pray for someone but pray for peace for everyone so that the person in your focus also receives the same without being selfish.

This year I have chosen to make Mantras very simple for those who are just learning to pronounce the mantras the “Easy” mantra will be for you. Those that are experts or efficient in pronunciation, it is suggested to perfect the advanced mantras.

The mantras for the black moon and new moon in Leo are:


Aum Hreeng Shreeng Sauh

(auuuum Hriing Shriing Sauh)


Om Tryambakam yajamahe sugandhim pushtivardhanam Urvarukamiva bandhanat mirityormurkshiya mamarita

This mantra will bring light and deliverance to your life with all the might and power of the universe.

Please recognize that I am not an astrologer; however, Vedic readings assimilate the energies of astrology and bring to the reading encoded obstacles and subtleties for free will choices.

Vedic readings do not tell you what to do; rather, they regulate a conceivable path which might be taken and allow free will choices to resolve conflicts before they occur. Think of Vedic readings as the GPS navigator and astrology is the vehicle. Without a vehicle you could still get to your destination, but it may take much longer. Even if you have a vehicle, this does not mean that you can’t get lost. But sometimes if you knew the road it makes life much simpler. This is why astrology focuses on the moon’s as well as the sun’s placement to bring the most directional aspects for beneficial journeys mathematically and Vedic readings provide the choices.

Currently, I am still taking appointments for 6 months self readings and 3 month relationship readings for the Lunar Eclipse.  See my schedule here for more information.

Christmas in July Giveaways are underway until August 5, 2019, simply subscribe to my newsletters and be up to date on planetary inferences and participate.

I only wish that you make the best of this energy and spend more time with the people that mean the most to you.
