This month’s moon is called the Harvest Moon. The Harvest Moon is tied to an astronomical event the autumnal equinox. This moon provides the most light at the time when it’s needed most – to complete the harvest!
This year the Harvest Moon is also in Constellation Phoenix. In Greek mythology the Phoenix is a long-lived bird that cyclically regenerates. In astrology Constellation Phoenix is said to give pioneering disposition, ambition and power. Remember that the Harvest Moon is a season about reaping what you have sown.
Reflect on those seeds you planted in the spring – not just the physical seeds, but the spiritual and emotional ones. This is the season where they are bearing fruit, take advantage of all of your hard work, and collect the bounty you deserve. This month consider the abundance you have in your life, and start thinking about ways you can share it with others.
Can you donate things to organizations that help the needy? What about setting up a food drive, or volunteering your time at a homeless shelter? Use this time of year to pay things forward, both materialistically and magically.
