Autumnal Equinox Harvest New Moon

Transformation Balance Potential

New Moon – September 28 @ 9:33 PST. 

Whirling wind and torrential rains have dampened the dry heat baying summers end here in the Pacific NW. Busy chipmunks and squirrels scurry speedily filling their storehouses with morsels to savor fall through spring. Berries, left behind from the browsing grouse, deer or bear, hang heavily on limb weighed by fat drops of rain. Give ample time as you drive interstates and roads, for wildlife to traverse like a chain-link with fawn and buck, bustling from the hunter’s arrow or gun.

September’s new moon although dark still within the Harvest season. A new moon represents the end of one 28 day cycle and the beginning of another. It gives forth an invigorating burst of energy and initiative, so it is prodigious to start a new project, set new goals and make resolutions or begin implementing your strategic plan.

The Autumnal Equinox preceding this new moon is auspicious and beckons us to deepen our consideration of who we are, despite the vacillation in our daily lives. So reach into the depths of your singular being to commune and unshackle your heart allowing your creative juices to flow forth to others with a communion of cause.

This moons effects will be particularly strong for the next few weeks weaving the hue and fabric for your coming months. Calling for you to make a plan, and take action with depth and transcendent courage as you peel down the core essence of your being – bare, exposed and uncovered, like the barren limb of the maple tree whose brown-ochre leaves resplendently carpet the ground.

Viewing what lies beneath this veneer is not for the faint of heart. Deeply buried feelings will be exposed so it’s necessary to gain control over your emotions, reactions and intrinsic nature though the quiet, soothing whistle of the wind as it sways and bows insistent on solitude to breath and reflect. Although it will be lighter than during the full moon.

Current planetary alignments may cause extreme polarities of emotion. Dreams can turn into fantasies and suspicion into paranoia. So remember the difference between fantasy and reality to avoid rejection, delusion, gullibility, deception, susceptibility, humiliation and shame. Changeable moods and changeable tastes can lead you astray to lowering of your standards or become disloyal and damage your relationships.

This moon amplifies your susceptibility to act impulsively which may accentuate aggressive instincts, therefore, use self-constraint to keep your anger and addictions in check. Be mindful to moderate if you have a tendency to anger or act without thinking to avoid small irritations from turning into arguments or fights. Get help before you indulge full tilt in your moody sensitivities like hatred, judgey insecurity, delusion, guilt or abject muddled confusion which can lead to poignant conflict in relationships.

The oppositions occurring over this Harvest Moon and Fall Equinox can easily strum one’s inner shadows and pluck at the self-critic, self-doubt, judgements and self-defeating mind with feelings like:

  • What’s the point I suck at everything?
  • I never know what to do so I’ll do nothing.
  • I never get anywhere so why even try?

Don’t let such self-defeating internal-talk defeat any motivation you have assembled. Feel your sorrow, feed your joy and if it still feels meaningless – go deeper…Then relax and go with the flow letting the tide carry you EXACTLY where you need to be.

Instead choose to traverse the current tumultuous waters with faith and devotion trusting in the Infinite: life is ongoing and you don’t always have to know the plan, just step forward with your gut instinct by taking actions that are measured, methodical and courageous.

This is a time to come back to a core place of Trust. Trust yourself – Trust. Balance inaction with action while navigating the frenetics of your life. Make certain to take time for silence and solace for personal reflection.

This rare moon pulls you into deep rivers of emotion. Imparts you to plunge into the quiet & demands you settle the chaos, choosing moments of solitude – indifferent to the oceans of confusion, intolerance & lies.

Family/Relationships/Single: Self-evaluation, rebirth and positive transformation a time to purge any emotional baggage with productive intention. Relish this opportunity for one on one time with your partner or kids to organize, redesign and then donate from closets, cupboards, bedrooms remember the garage or outdoor space may need some spunk or smoothing out. Make certain to reflect and self-measure within before engaging intense personal interaction. Be willing to make changes and be flexible to fluctuating conditions will make things easier for yourself and those around you.

Presently it is clear exactly how you feel about someone and exactly how they feel about you. Also a great time to be mindful and stop destructive tendencies or behaviors. A time for adventure, partying, making love with warmth, romance, happiness and generosity.  Try a weekend getaway somewhere you can collect yourselves and let the earth envelope you with its change of season.

Unsettled moods and changeable tastes can lead you astray into lowering your standards or seduce you to become disloyal which may damage a friendship or end your relationship. An important time to let your relationship evolve to a deeper level or you may have clarity to cut your losses and be free to move on. Your expectations in your intimacy and sex life may be out of touch with reality, so see a couple’s counselor or join a class together to deepen your intimacy, generosity and sensuality.

Singles:  A time for love – good moon for dating, starting a new relationship as this moon entertains sociable loving influences. You could still be feeling strong, sexy, frisky and enthusiastic from the lingering glow of August 30th’s moon avoid a tendency toward impulsive, self-indulgent action that could lead to misunderstanding, embarrassment or accidents. Instead sink deep inside your core – acting then from a place of trust, rely upon faith and set your creative feathers a flight. Moving with precision into the ebb & flow of life, gives energy, initiative and a willingness to take risks. Be certain to moderate your energy and use strategy and forethought to avoid losses and physical or emotional exhaustion.

Job/Business: Wonderful time to make changes, take inventory, reorganize, recycle, shake up or donate those things no longer necessary for success. Your expectations in your career may be out of touch with reality. So refine and rethink what ignites passion within you to bring home the dough. Use forethought and strategically plan as you plunge deep with renewed interest in your current position or business. Try a new approach. You may be feeling your job or business is strong yet avoid a tendency toward impulsive termination, re-org or layoff’s. This could lead to miscalculations, errors and add a strain to long term growth. Opportunities for good fortune and growth exist with this new moon.

Money/Finance: Buckle your seatbelts for a rough ride. The fed lowering rates again is just a false show of strength in a tanking system with no confidence due to markets, banks and mortgage lending on crack. This crash will dump mid-February and this one, definitely plunges worse from the GOP fattening itself upon the deprivation of the elderly, families and middle class since December 2008.

The current administrations purported delusions of grandeur and false propaganda of strength is causing greater impacts to the burgeoning deficit. Use forethought and strategy with purchases before you engage sound investing with the opportunity of well researched in tech, real estate or those start-ups you can thoroughly support.

Although you may be feeling monetarily strong pacify impulsive tendencies with prudent purchases and a tactical plan so as not to lead to financial strain or miscalculations of revenue for third quarter or yearend results. Nail it down now until the rollercoaster financial tsunami passes.

In conclusion:  You might be asking:How can I be alright while the world is a big mess in cheesecloth of confusion, distortion and lies?” or “How can I spend, build or invest when the markets are so volatile and extractive destruction continues everywhere?”

You can’t be ok while the world around you is being aggressively destroyed. Implement actions how little or big wherever you can. Pick your moments to arise and champion causes, purchases or investments you deeply believe in. Come back to a place of trust. Pursue actively only what uplifts you, for by taking that time, you will be a worthwhile advocate for change.

Don’t dare give up under the weight of these unjust realities. Purification by fire is all it is. Focus your phoenix to arise from the ashes into rebirth, renewal, balance & harmony. Reset your dreams in solid motion. Bountiful are those who have taken the time to plant & nourish the seed as well as the soul. Compassion for your & others humanity will be the impetus to compel to Excel & Arise

Great time for self-evaluation, cleansing, resetting & redirection in all aspects of our lives. Relax, Breathe, Let go and Trust that Life has a way of working everything out.

Let faith take root & your dreams will simply manifest. Do whatever you can to change. With that I urge you take a listen (if you live under a rock) to the UN Climate Action Summit plea from Greta Thunberg yesterday:

Engage your senses this harvest, enjoy as you balance solitude and socialness, as a collective or within your communal Tribes to reap all the emotional growth you have sown. This moon’s dynamic is fluid and has enough tension to move and dance you through and around any obstruction. Let harnessed creativity take root and carry your exhilaration forward to change the world. As you hold the tension of opposites call up play inventively to navigate the polarities with greater ease and understanding.

Hunter’s Full Moon

Hunter’s Full Moon

If the 8th was challenging for you – hold onto your hats as this full moon’s winds start to swirl.  There’s more bubbling up from the depths with even deeper revelations into the shadow side of yourself. If you were wise you paced yourself and went inside and began to excavate, so now you stand in certainty reaping the benefits of your diligence.

Taking Inventory – can be one of the most challenging facets of this full moon to The end of the year. So take account of your life in a way you have never done before. Although your discovery may be painful, discouraging and uncomfortable, you may be surprised with the hidden jewels you’ll find as well.

If you didn’t take the time to get your life in order and on track, the chaos of what wasn’t put in place may be full on exploding from your job, relationships or possibly financially.  Calmly take the reins of your life and assess clearly now, breath and relax as you settle it all down. Take a walk in the crisp fall air and liberate like the sand releases to the ocean.

You could be facing resistance, hopelessness, shattered dreams resulting in irritation, anger and disappointment so use these powerful feelings to cultivate deeper inspiration. You could be faced with a spectacle or crisis of thought, will and determination. The confrontations permeating within you may be strong, obstinate and rebellious. Stay away from negative encounters that may lead to subsequent anger.  As these emotions are best suckled within and used for positive change.

The question to ask yourself: “What actions do I take to empower myself within all of this?”  It is sensible to move towards what uplifts you rather than push against that which doesn’t. Alter what you can and let go of that which isn’t serving you.  Your most protected patterns will be presented for your full viewing pleasure.  Decide now to sit down the crisis and move them into actions for opportunity.

This moon invites you to go within, retreat and feel deeply into your calm grabbing the opportunity to begin anew with your self-intention.  Continue to change the way you handle, love, relationships and money. Stay the course as you refine your goals and projects.  Risk stepping out of your comfort zone to exhibit movements through a beginner’s mind.

The Hunter’s moon serves the Goddess on many levels and it’s the powerful presence of the feminine and all aspects to the relationship with the feminine. Issues around sustenance or care taking, whether you lacked love from your mothers, whether you were fully embraced and fed, whether you resented or fear the power of Her energy – all may erupt in each of us depending on where your issues resonate. It is time to heal your relationship with the feminine and fully step into the power She provides.

It is imperative to feed what is important to us:

Job/Business – Make certain you carve out the space and time to accomplish what it takes to nourish you during your work day.  Create a niche of joy even if it is just to step outside and take a breath. Maybe approach your business with wonder and a childlike enthusiasm? Take your employee’s outdoors for a bonus while scavenging through fall foliage. If

Relationships – take the time to nurture yourself and partner by spending some delight during an intimate walk as the fog nestles around you. Take time to foster the yin and yang balance within yourselves. Lighten the mood with your family by going to the pumpkin patch, bobbing for apples, or share a night making s’mores under the light of the full moon. If seeking a relationship delve deep into love of yourself and BE what you desire to call to you in love.

Financial – Keep it simple. Take stock, budget and clean up what you have been putting off. Upgrade essential changes to weatherize your home or vehicle. Do not spend extravagantly on large ticket items. Things should look better come late winter/early spring. Squirrel your nuts away for your burrow of bigger bounty.

Allow space for transformation and growth as you reflect upon matters most important to your calm. Channel the moons transformational energy and again – listen to your Higher Self keeping grounded and focused. Take time for GRATITUDE and enjoy a cup of Chai as you sit by the fire allowing space for conversion while implementing the prospects this Moon and its Goddess provides.

Use this moon’s potent energy to plant seeds to await winter’s thaw you’ll circumnavigate the garden of your life. It is a time to promote you every day by passionately igniting optimistic actions. Dive deep into love and generously share it with those you care about to collectively soften the noise of the world. This is a time of collaboration so find your clarity and align with those of like mind.

Consider these significant points to move you forward with this Moon:

  • Have you taken stock and cleared the inventory of your personal, business and financial storehouses? Making the necessary alterations?
  • Are you staying centered and balanced within?
  • Are you able to find a place of calm within your day to day life?
  • It is a time where the veils are thin. Stretch yourself to heal the past or ancestral issues. Take time to be quiet and focus within to unify with greater Light and Healing to uplift.

This full moon is a perfect time to walk, move and feel into the above questions as you settle into the dawn of winter, for change is swirling within not only on the wind. Set your inner and outer sails to confidently unite.
