Time to say goodbye to Summer and welcome the arrival of Autumn which will be heralded by a Harvest Moon on Sept. 10, 2022 in Pisces. In traditional Skylore, the Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the Autumn Equinox, which will take place on Sept. 22. Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. I just love the feeling that’s in the air and visible through the changing of the leaves.
However, because this full moon takes place across the zodiac in water sign Pisces, you’re being temporarily plunged deep into the ethereal world of your emotions. Pisces’ poetic and sensitive energy will amplify full moon feelings, making intuition just as important as observation, and making your fluffiest fantasies feel possible. However, it’s important not to get too carried away in your emotions — Mercury retrograde will be in full swing under this lunation, so it’ll be easy to end up saying something you don’t really mean or otherwise getting swept up in the intensity of the full moon drama.
This September Full Moon is bringing us personal freedom. Good luck seems to be migrating around this Full Moon. After so much darkness this past year it’s like a light is coming on and shining down on us in a positive manner. In olden days the farmers would use the full Harvest Moon to bring in their crops, because it stayed light so long on this night, and maybe that is the message that is here for us. The Harvest Moon puts the focus on the harvest in our lives, whether it is the literal harvest with crops from your garden, or the energy around you that you are harvesting, this is a really important time to know where you stand and how you are finishing out your year.
Being as this full Moon is in the sign of Pisces it will bring a calming water affect, which will bring about an attunement for your emotions. So any feelings that come your way doing this time be gentle with yourself and know that you are being reconditioned and recharged by this healing water of Pisces.
If you've ever taken an evening car ride or just so happened to catch a glimpse of the starry sky during the early months of fall, you may have noticed the harvest moon. Unlike other full moons, the harvest moon is a little different in both its color and timing, making this moon phase incredibly striking.
Keywords for this Pisces Full Moon are: sensitivity, intuition, music, dreams, escapes, addiction, the ocean, creativity, dance, nature, forgiveness and compassion.
Unlike other Full Moons, this one is specifically related to the Autumn (Northern Hemisphere) or Spring (Southern Hemisphere) Equinoxes on 22 September. It is a time where everything is illuminated in order to gather the harvest. The Full Moon sheds its brilliant light, making everything easy to see and gather.
The veils between the worlds are thinnest around a full moon, so be careful what you invite in. It is best used to purge things out, and banish the negative energies back to the underworld from where they came. Make sure you close the door firmly afterwards! This is a good time for learning and practicing the White Light Protection of God.
Now more than ever we need to keep our spiritual and physical selves protected with the wonderful power of God’s White Light.
Archangel Asariel is busy working with us during the harvest Moon. As this archangel is associated with Pisces he comes in strong to guide us through these difficult waters. Ask and he will help guide your spirit. Asariel watches over your emotions and the ebb and flow of life, encouraging creativity and teaching through dreams and inner wisdom.
It is perfectly fine to have big visions and to strive to live our dreams however, under this energy, we need to bring our focus and attention to how we are actually spending the minutes of our day.
It’s what we do day in and day out that creates our life, so think about your daily routine and how you can tidy things up and schedule more time for the things you really want to do.
This month is also great for getting organized, for clearing out the clutter from your home or your mind, and for making sure your routine leaves time for self- care.
September’s full moon is forming a loose conjunction with dreamy planet Neptune, further connecting you with your fantasies and illuminates our imaginations. Additionally, a sweet sextile aspect to eccentric planet Uranus adds a fun surprise-factor to this late-summer lunation, so look out for sudden changes of heart. You may see some of your summer goals unexpectedly come to fruition or reach an exciting climax, so expect the unexpected. Summer may be coming to a close, but with this full moon’s rose-colored energy, the future still looks sunny.
If you have felt sluggish, unmotivated or if things have been moving too slow for your liking, September may bring the push you have been looking for. If there is something you’ve been meaning to do, or something you wish to cross off your to-do list, take action this full Moon, as you may just find things get done much quicker than expected!
