Three Planets Will Slide Behind the Moon in an Occultation. Before the official new moon date 9/20. This isa rare event happening with this moon. Today 9/18 the Moon will block Mercury (Esu/Elegba/Ibeji), Mars (Ogun), and Venus (Oshun) and one of the brightest stars in the sky, Regulus, in the constellation Leo, a few hours after it passes Venus. Venus will ingress in the sign of Virgo 9/20 at the time of the Virgo New Moon.The last time the moon slid past three planets within 24 hours as it will this week was on March 5, 2008 (when it was Mercury, Venus and Neptune), and the next time will be in 7/24/2036, according to EarthSky. Mercury completes it’s post retrograde shadow period on 9/19. These events make this Virgo new moon one of the most powerful moon times in decades.​
