With the Harvest Moon upon us and the Fall Equinox fast approaching this is a great time to move inward and give thanks. As we’re thrown into the evolving winds and the changing energies of summer to autumn we may begin to feel a sense of unsettling anxiety and a frantic lack of time as we see each day just rush by us. This is all coming from our Harvest Moon, she is powerful and asking, almost begging you to stop in your tracks, take a seat, deep breath and move inward.
This full moon wants you to analyze where you are on your life path, to take sober evaluation of your relationships, work and resources. Under this moon you can feel supported to ask your self-testing and teaching questions such as; “what is working for me?” “What does align with my life purpose?” and “Am I truly living my life’s purpose?” This moon also supports, quite powerfully, for you to reevaluate and if something is not working, this is the opportunity to let it go.

“She encourages us to let even our name go, to move beyond the ‘I’ ness of existence, in order to experience the essence which energises us from the heart…”
“This Full Moon in the final sign of the zodiac reminds us that the true harvest of our path is experienced within, in the very core of our being, not externally in the trappings of our lives.
“If we fail to connect with our essence we may miss the harvest, forever seeking it outside of ourselves, which can be a more seductive and absorbing path, but also a distracting and deceptive one. As with all Full Moons, something comes to fruition at this point, but today the harvest is within us awaiting our inward gaze in order to be known…”
