Harvest Full Moon is Almost Here!
Hot Witch Summer is over, and it’s time for Rich Witch Bitch Autumn!
Next Monday, September 20th is the Full Harvest Moon, and Wednesday, September 22nd is the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. Those who follow the Witches’ Wheel of the Year celebrate the pagan harvest festival of Mabon. Everyone else calls it the first day of Fall.
What is the Harvest Full Moon?
The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon closest to the the final harvest of the year. This is when our ancestors would gather the the remainder of the food harvested from the Earth. They would take inventory of the food supplies in order to prepare for their survival through winter. Celebrations at this time included an expression of gratitude for the year’s bounty.
The Autumn Equinox is when the hours of day and night come into balance, so it’s a great time for you to take a pause as well. It’s a time to shift gears and prepare for colder weather, as well as reflect back on the year’s experiences and lessons.
If you’d like to take advantage of this current magickal energy, here are some tips:
Reflect on the year, with its ups and downs. What were your highest and lowest points? What did you learn? Who did you learn from?
Take time to notice the Most Valuable Players in your life: the people, places, and things that expanded your mind and brought blessings.
Identify the people, habits, and limiting beliefs that got in your way this year. Bless them for the lesson they taught, and release them.
