This photo is a great shot, totally shows how I saw the moon last night, which was just a peek through the clouds briefly during Macy’s walk. Apparently the Full Moon was really hard for a lot of people astrologically which is helpful to hear as I was sort of beside myself with misanthropy yesterday and so relieved and happy to get home and sit on my couch and knit. Today is Mumford and Sons new album and cleaning my room and writing my book and honoring the abundance in my life. And probably more knitting.
Suddenly, full moon.
The Harvest Moon is tonight! The Harvest Moon is the one closest to the Autumnal Equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere.
It’s also full moon in Aries! Which lots of the online astrologers are saying is special because it is square with Uranus and Pluto in Capricorn. Here’s what Molly Hall says (as quoted here),
“The universe supports you in surprising ways. Be clear with your intent, and open to superfast progress. Aries is about now and this Full Moon is about emerging into being here now… If you focus attention on what you’re creating, the results can amaze you. That’s why it’s critical, too, to beam on what you want to bring in.”
There are a lot of great full moon rituals you can do to release things that are holding you back. And since Aries is the firey fire sign try burning a list of things that are holding you back from your greatness and letting them go. This ritual is really great.
“burn the scroll - burn the cloak.
an act of creation, not destruction
an act of love, not regret…”
Tonight I will meet up with a bunch of pals and look at the full moon/blue moon as well as the fireworks on Coney Island. I’m making Goddess cookies and I am following the urgings of my heart and loving life.
so tonight is the 2nd full moon of the month. which means: BLUE MOON, y’all. here is most of the pertinent info from the link above. read ‘em and weep. like, literally. WATER WATER WATER signs. all your feelings and all your cries, writ large. i’m more than a little nervous, i’m not gonna lie.
Here we go:
The North Node in Scorpio calls for bringing what’s been hidden in darkness out into the light in order to access the Scorpio gifts of healing and regeneration. On October 5, Saturn will also move into Scorpio, providing further “encouragement” (to put it mildly) to uncover and clean up what’s lurking in the subconscious and undermining our power and potential.
The South Node — what needs to be released — moves into Taurus, Scorpio’s opposite, the sign of material security, comfort and stability. The default mode of the Taurus South Node is, “Once I have enough money/material security, then it will be safe for me to take the risk of living my passion,” and this approach is NOT scheduled to work over the next year and a half.
“Following the energy” — feeling where the stirring of vitality is calling you and moving in that direction — will bring greater security than clinging to the status quo. Scorpio’s element is Water — the emotional realm — and tuning into, trusting and acting on feelings will create better outcomes than operating strictly based on what appear to be the facts of the matter (Taurus).
As the North Node transitions into Scorpio, the energy is building toward an especially intense Full Moon (Friday, 6:58 am PDT), providing plenty of cosmic support for getting in touch with our feelings. The Full Moon is in watery Pisces, amplifying, in its higher expression, compassion, connection with Source, and oneness with all Life. Because the Full Moon forms a close conjunction with Chiron, we’re also likely to experience the more painful feelings associated with Pisces — acute sensitivity toward others’ and our own suffering, grief and overwhelm — as well as the stirring up of old wounds.
If we can stay with the feelings — ride the wave of emotion, allow the tears without having to find words for or analyze them, and resist the urge to get lost in our favorite form of escapism — this Full Moon offers a tremendous potential for healing. For more insight into the areas of life that are particularly ripe for healing in your own life, find the house in your birth chart that contains 8 degrees of Pisces.
Pisces resources that can support you through the next few days include taking time to rest, meditate, pray and simply BE; paying attention to and engaging with your dreams; listening to and/or playing music; dancing, painting, and reading and/or writing poetry; practicing forgiveness, compassion and non-judgment toward yourself and others; spending time in or near water.
