Full Moon in September: The Harvest Moon

Full Moon in September: The Harvest Moon

September is the time of the Harvest Moon.

For our ancestors, this was a time when they would gather the last remaining crops and store them for the winter.

How much they store and how they store it is vital to their survival in winter when there are no crops and when it's freezing cold.

It is starting to get a little colder as the sun slowly moves farther from us.

It is the season of Mabon too, the autumn equinox.

This full moon is also called the:

  • Wine Moon
  • Singing Moon

September is when we celebrate hearth and home.

It's when we prepare for the arrival of the colder months, just as our ancestors did.

As it gets colder, use this period to clear out the clutter in your home and in your mind and body.

Remember, you will be inside most of the time for the colder months, so do not be bringing any negativity that you ought to have gotten rid of during the warmer months...

...unless you want to be cooped up with negativity swirling around.

September Harvest Moon Magick

The harvest moon comes out to remind you to reap what you have sown.

The warmer months allowed you to sow some seeds and now is the time to reap them!

It could be a new habit or a new hobby.

It could be positive attributes and special skills.

Whatever you have been working on the past few months, now is the time to take a step back and see how you have grown.

Magick for this month is about increasing your harvest physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally, and giving thanks to the Divine for allowing you to grow and be better.

If there is anything at all that you would like to have more of, and if you would like illumination, then this is the perfect time to cast spells in service of that.

As a preparation for the colder months, use this time to stockpile magickal supplies and ingredients.

More time indoors means more time to cast spells and perform rituals. You are going to spend an inordinate time in the kitchen as well.

Lastly, with all the abundance that you have sown, always remember to share it with others.

Maybe you can teach someone else how to play the piano or you can dedicate more time to helping others.

Since you're clearing clutter, you can donate what you no longer need.

This is the perfect time to pay it forward.

And if you do this, the Mother Goddess will beam with so much happiness.

Have a Blessed Harvest Moon and Blessed be!
