The Harvest Moon | What Is It and What Does It Mean?

The Harvest Moon | What Is It and What Does It Mean?

The Harvest Moon is the full moon occurring closest to the autumnal equinox. This year (2019) it falls on Friday the 13th if you’re in the CST, MST, PST time zones, & Sat the 14th at 12:35 am if you’re on the east coast. The next time this will happen won’t be until Aug 13, 2049, so take full advantage of this potent magical energy! It's called the Harvest Moon because it occurs at the height of the harvest season, lighting the way for farmers to work precious extra hours gathering in the summer crops.

The full moon will be in the sign of Pisces, which is associated with dreams, visions, intuition, mysticism, creativity, and healing. The energy is powerful right now, it feels to me like that veil is already thinning, even though we’re still in summer. Having vivid dreams? Seeing shadows out of the corner of your eye? Me too! This is an opportune time for divination and spirit communication

Because it’s the Harvest moon, this is also a time to honor all you’re gathering in~all you’ve learned this year, things you've released in order to change, grow, heal, and literal projects coming to fruition. It’s been a transformative year. You’ve worked hard and come a long way, so sink into that comfy feeling of accomplishment and enjoy it!

The autumnal equinox is September 23 and it will officially be Fall! Yay! It's already in the air and kicking off those cozy, nostalgic feelings. My favorite thing is crunching through leaves in the crisp air, with the warm hues of afternoon light making the trees glow orange, red, and yellow overhead.
