Embracing your independence with the Harvest Moon
Updated: Sep 29, 2020
September 2, 2020, is the Harvest Moon! The Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the Autumn Equinox on September 22. This is an amazing opportunity to pull in all the positive changes you want in your life. It's a time to assert your independence in all aspects of your life, from who you are, who you love, where you live, and what you stand for.
The Full Moon is when we as Witches celebrate the fullness and totality of The Goddess. She is with us during all the phases of the moon, whether or not we can see Her light in the sky. The moon is a powerful symbol of The Goddess, She is ever-present and ever-changing, yet always with us. As children of The Goddess, we too are on a journey of change and growth. There is a saying that you can never step in the same river twice. The same can be said for people: We are constantly growing and changing. Stopping to reflect on where we are now, and what changes we want to embrace is an important gift of The Goddess during the Full Moon.
This Harvest Moon, step outside and light a tealight candle in honor of The Goddess. Spend time with Her, and write in your Book of Shadows what you want to harvest in your life. As you do, see what actions She is gently guiding you toward to manifest these blessings in your life. Where can you be more independent and live more authentically? See where She is telling you to be more genuine or more compassionate. She may gently challenge you to be more accepting of yourself, warts and all. This is your time of independent self-reflection with The Goddess, there are no wrong answers.
When you are done, thank The Goddess for Her love and care. Your life is a personal journey, embrace how you want to live it, with authentic independence!
