The Harvest Moon
September 19, 2013
Full Moon 7:13 a.m. EDT
Moon void of course, 7:13 a.m. EDT
Moon enter Aries 12:58 EDT
The full moon closest to the autumnal equinox is called the Harvest Moon. In the Northern Hemisphere, the Harvest Moon’s strong light enabled farmers to gather their crops well past sunset. On a metaphysical level, the September moon urges us to reflect upon what we have sown over the growing season. What have we reaped? As the moon moves into Aries, passions and impatience flare. But on the 21st, the moon enters Taurus with its grounding energies. The 22nd brings the autumnal equinox, a good time to focus upon personal, political, and environmental harmony and balance.
