Mercury Retrograde has finally ended just in time for our Full Harvest Moon in Pisces on September 6th. The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon that lands the closest to the Autumn Equinox. According to our Farmer’s Almanac this would be a perfect time to plant, transplant or graft if you have any of those things to tend to.
Different traditions offer different names for the full moons. Harvest Moon is the name of the moon common in the Native American tradition. Here are some other names you may find interesting:
China: Chrysanthemum Moon
Cherokee: Nut Moon
Dakotah Sioux: Moon When The Calves Grow Hair
Celtic: Singing Moon
English Medieval: Barley Moon
The following article is from: The Dark Pixie Astrology – September 2017 New & Full Moons: Full Moon in Pisces & New Moon in Virgo:
September brings a full moon in Pisces on the 6th at 3:03AM ET, and Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac, so we can see some wrapping up with this full moon. We can take time to clean house, and get rid of what’s holding us back, weighing us down, and keeping us stuck in the past. This can be a great time to let go, and that’s especially needed after the August eclipses and Mercury retrograde, which ends the day before this full moon.
We can be more sensitive with this full moon, and need to be handled with kid gloves. Our emotions can be strong, but we can keep what we’re feeling to ourselves, not wanting to be a burden to anyone. We should work to be more compassionate and understanding, no doubt needed after the wonky energy we’re coming out of.
The full moon is conjunct (aligned with) the natural ruler of Pisces, Neptune, amplifying the energy of Pisces and making it even more important for us to be sweet, gentle, kind, and caring. Step outside of yourself and lend a hand to someone else. The world needs a little sweetness
