Tonight is The Full Harvest Moon. It is called the Harvest Moon because at the end of September crops that were seeded in Spring are now ready to be harvested. It is the final harvest before Winter, so crops, fruit, and grain would be stored to last through the winter months. The Harvest Moon is very bright, probably the biggest and brightest Moon of the year. This morning’s lunar eclipse will create extra strong tides and energy flows, disrupting sleep and energy levels.
Tonight’s Full Moon is in the constellation of Pisces. This will be a fiery Full Moon, deep with raw emotions. Your sensitivity will be heightened. You may have to move away from loud noise, crowds, and negative people. Try to be around nature tonight, as it will be very healing and nurturing to you. It is okay to cry a little and let yourself feel all those pent-up feelings we hold deep down inside us. Let them out and wipe the slate clean in your heart. Pisces is a water element, therefore emotions and feelings are strong now. Be kind and gentle with yourself as you may be feeling ultra-sensitive at the moment.
This Pisces Full Moon is here to dissolve what holds you back, to accept that healing is needed and necessary. Sometimes you have got to be brave and open an old wound in order to rip out what is holding you to the past and making you unhappy. There is something sacred about this painful process; it is something no one can help you with. It is something only you can do, but it is necessary if you wish to heal and move forward. Put trust in the universe that what comes is for our benefit.
This is a time of transformation. Earth is going through a major shift at the moment as it heads into Autumn. We are also going through a major change in our lives as the earths energy projects itself onto us. We can use this energy of transformation to become what we feel we need to be in order to move on and be happy.
Pisces will make us feel a little braver and stronger, we may find that we have the courage to do things we were afraid to do in the past. Open yourself up tonight to the magical forces around you. Don’t be limited by the five senses or the ‘how’s’ and ‘when’s.’ Instead, believe in yourself and live from a place of magic and miracles.
The Harvest Moon is a time to reap what we have sown and cultivated this year. Our own personal harvest is the culmination of our efforts to manifest a deeper and fuller life for ourselves. Name what you have harvested over the past year and bless it and yourself for the good work you have done.
This Full Moon let your emotions flow, get rid of past hurts, cry, scream, or shout if you need to, but let it out. Allow yourself to heal. Let the waters of Pisces cleanse and soothe you. After tonight’s emotional Full Moon when you wake to an Autumn Sun you will feel like a new person, full of vigor and energy.
Have a blessed Full Moon, and may the Goddess watch over you.
