It’s Friday the 13th and a Full Moon! What a magical day! I’ve always loved both Friday the 13th and the Full Moon so I feel like this day is extra special. The September Full Moon is known as the Harvest Moon. It’s also known as the Corn Moon, Full Corn Moon or Barley Moon. The Harvest Moon is the only Full Moon name that is determined by the Equinox rather than the month.
September’s Full Moon falls in the sign of Pisces. The energy holds the potential for deep transformation and illumination. This is the last Full Moon before the equinox and we are provided an opportunity to “harvest” what we can or need before we enter a new season. Reap the rewards of what you’ve achieved since the Solstice. Pause and reflect on who you were then and who you are now. What has changed in your life and what have you learned?
Harvest Moons are known for their cleansing energy. If there is something you wish to be rid of, release it and let it go so it is not taken with you into the new season.
With this full moon falling in the watery sign of Pisces, it could be a sensitive time. Unresolved or unexpressed emotions might be triggered and we may feel deeply sensitive finding it difficult to not absorb what is happening around us. This level of sensitivity can be challenging and if we allow the feelings to come and go like the movement of water, we may discover there is a message from everything we are feeling. Try not to control what you are feeling and really appreciate the energy that is moving through.
If you find this time to be too much to handle, take time to ground yourself. Walk barefoot on the Earth or meditate visualizing roots extending from your feet into the Earth to connect to the grounding energy. Always know you are supported by The Great Mother.
Pisces is symbolic for the yin and yang energy and the pursuit of higher levels of consciousness. One fish swims in a downward direction reminding us to stay rooted and present while the other swims in an upward direction reminding us that there is more to life beyond this one. This balance is what brings clarity and peace to our lives.
Connect with the Pisces energy during this time and be present. Always remember that this life is temporary and filled with unknowns…
Today, take a moment to think about where your life needs balance. What changes need to be made? How will you achieve balance? This process can be difficult so let the energy of the Full Moon and Pisces guide you through. Allow this energy to trigger those emotions or feelings that need to be expressed and let go of what no longer is beneficial for your highest good. Find closure and prepare for the new season ahead.
“We are not our bodies, we are not our minds, we are not our thoughts or the experiences that happen to us. We are so much greater than this, and this is what Pisces energy reminds us of.” ~Tanaaz
