Harvest Moon in Pisces

The full moon in September is known as the Harvest Moon, and it arrives this Friday, September 4. This moon celebrates the fall harvest of nuts, corn, apples, grapes, pumpkins, squash, beans, wild rice and other crops. The light of the moon enabled farmers to work a little longer in the fields to bring in the harvest.

So even though most of us are not farmers, it is an excellent time to pause and appreciate all that we have harvested in this year. Being grateful for all we have received and cultivating that attitude will serve us well in sending out sympathetic vibrations and prepare the way for more good things to come.

This full moon is in Pisces, which rules intuition, mysticism and the collective unconscious. Pisces energy enhances a person's ability to read and develop psychic abilities. During this period, we may also find ourselves picking up more omens and messages than usual, and it is up to us to find ways to make use of these for our benefit. Pisces also brings tenderness, compassion and creativity. Pisces links us through the heart and heightens sensitivity.

If you were not planning to do a full moon ceremony, give it a little thought. Even a small simple ceremony can bring you blessings. Over the span of millennia, people have found many ways to celebrate the full moons. Our ancestors knew that harmonizing our personal energies with the cycles of nature's energies was a wise thing to do, and that's why these practices have continued to this day.
