Was anyone else expecting a Harvest Moon this September..? because...SAME!
But what I recently learned is that the harvest moon is actually the full moon that takes place the closest to the autumnal equinox- which is September 22nd or 23rd depending on where you live! So roughly every three years we have a full Harvest Moon that is actually closer to October than September. This full moon will peak through the night of September 1st to the dawn of September 2nd.
So this September we will enjoy the Full Corn Moon instead!! As you can imagine, the Native Americans named this month's moon on the thriving amount of corn that is ready to be harvested in a few weeks. This moon has also been called the Barley Moon- for the very same reason! (Farmers Almanac).
How are we spiritually affected and connected to the Full Corn Moon?
By embodying the power of golden abundance!
Isn’t it a crazy thought to think you can actually have everything you want in life. It takes time and hard work, yes. But by simply shifting your mindset to acknowledging the abundance you already have- you will receive more light in your daily life! I could literally talk about abundance all day long-so I know there is going to be a future blog post coming...but long story short, if you are not feeling an “extremely plentiful or over sufficient quantity or supply, an overflowing fullness: abundance of the heart. affluence; wealth: the enjoyment of abundance in everyday life... then you’re going to want to focus your energy here this full moon.
2020 has been an incredibly strange time to get in touch with our daily abundance- but the Corn Moon wants this for you!
This is a good time to start something new! Make a larger purchase you have been holding out on, but some new clothes, have your eye on a new position at work? Now is the time to GO FOR IT!!! You have the next 30 days full of support and healing from out locing Moon.
The moonbeams from this glowing orb of glory will permeate your being, so make sure you are charging your crystals and making your moon water, saying your mantras, and resting your sweet vessels.
Zodiac and the Moon-
We are in the midst of virgo season which basically means it is time to hunker down and make sure you’re setting the right intentions to achieve your 2020 goals! I know that due to COVID-19, most of our goals have subsided, but perhaps there is still an aspect we can achieve!
The full corn moon resides in Pisces and fully embodies it’s water sign qualities. So go with the flow, trust your intuition. Structure your days around wellness this month. Clear your calendars a bit and leave open space! The moon on pisces shines light on your passions and dreams- so heal your body, set intentions and go slay the rest of September. I know having WGS has kept me motivated to keep pushing..- what motivates you?
Try a new ritual this full moon- below are a few ideas!
- Charge your crystals
- Mandala Crystal Healing
- Dance under the full moon
- Make a herbal elixir
- Read Tarot or Oracle Card
My favorite full moon ritual plan is listed below for you to try at home!
- Build an altar or set up a comfortable space next to an existing altar
- Choose an object that feels special to you this week and place it on the altar
- Light a candle on the altar (you can find my homemade herbal candles on my etsy! )
- Light some scent. Whatever you prefer- always offer it to the goddess/god or mother earth first, then yourself.
- Journal- what is your relationship with abundance? Are you satisfied.. Or do you want more abundance in your life?- who do you look up to who lives an abundant lifestyle?
- Meditate and do restorative yoga.. Here’s a link to a nice restorative hip opener I recently did and LOVED
- Pat yourself on the back… like physically.. But also just take some time to acknowledge the things you accomplished over the last month. Maybe even write these down too!
I hope you have a restful and abundant September<3
Crystal Highlight: Moonstone, Selenite, and Labradorite are the three powerhouse Moon crystals that resonate at the same frequency as the moon.
But this month we can focus on CITRINE- carry it with you in your pocket or purse this month for more abundance. The yellow tones of the crystal embody the golden sun! This is a cash flowing stone baby- so if you’re trying to manifest better finances- you’re gonna want to charge this babe up, and bring her with you.
Your Monthly Oracle- I pulled this card just before sitting down to write this post. Keep these words in mind when you wake up every day this month!
“ Speak plainly , speak simply, speak out what is on your mind. Get straight to the point, be direct, be specific. For your innermost being is direct, specific and true.
So what are you waiting for? Let the words F L O W.”
