The Harvest Moon

Every few years we get a year with 13 Full Moons in a year instead of 12. The same happens with a New Moon, but I won't get into that now. It depends on when the artificial human calendar (and its arbitrary, arcane idea of "months") synchs up with the actual, ongoing, eternal celestial rhythms. When either happens, one event comes very near the beginning of the month and the other very near the end.

A Full Moon happens every 29.5 days. (And again, the same with a New Moon) So every year you have 11 days "left over" -- which shift the next year's Moon dates forward or backward. (Don't worry about it. It's just "interesting" ... and sometimes inconvenient. And sometimes seems strangely symbolic. Even spooky. Such as when this year's Full Moons -- given that it's 2020, and all -- happen in October.)

So -- we get a Harvest Moon on October 1. And a Blue Moon on Halloween. (As I said. Spooky. But a Full Moon on Halloween. You have to love it. Or at least admit your Inner Kid thinks that's cool & terrific.) The Harvest Moon is the name given the Full Moon that forms closest to the Autumnal Equinox -- the Libra Ingress ... the day the Sun moves into Libra, when day & night are equal in length.

(From there, of course, in the Northern Hemisphere, we get shorter days & longer nights. In the Southern Hemisphere, just the opposite. We're moving into winter. They're moving into "summer." I don't know how they actually designate it. I should ask.)

The Harvest Moon often comes in September. Its name comes from when farmers were able to harvest their crops by moonlight. The moon will appear full for 3 - 4 days. Enjoy it!!

The Full Moon

New Moons are about starting new things -- new projects, new commitments, new interests. The New Moon in Gemini, wherever it falls in the sign, is about using your mind to explore your world, to explore your life, to find your place in both and understand them all differently. The Full Moon in Sagittarius opposing the Gemini Sun is actually able to help that happen by providing context to what's going on.

Full Moons in general are about inner exploration and reflection. They are times when you become aware of options, conflicts and choices. They also help you become aware of your priorities and your likely need to rebalance some. It's this conflict, this discomfort that makes Full Moons so notoriously problematic.

The Full Text
('Cause I'm in THAT kind of a mood.)

Whenever the Full Moon rolls around, I write a segment here -- or somewhere -- about "choices." That's its message. Conflicts. Opposing priorities. Split loyalties. Decisions. Regaining balance. Making choices. None are as clear & stark as the one facing us now -- as a nation ... as a planet.

Continue to nurture, protect yourself, care for your loved ones, conserve your assets & use your resources wisely, stay the course and deal with the physicality of Life -- all of them basic concerns for the Sun in Taurus ---> or risk death, complete destruction, total revolution, chaos & dire conditions, annihilation -- all of these are the basic concerns for the Moon in Scorpio. So here we are. The wording is sometimes a lot simpler.

Your money -- or your life. Dig in -- or die. And for some, that's literally what they're facing -- whether they can admit it or not. That choice. Maybe they can go back to work and not get sick ... not die. But it's a gamble. There are no guarantees. Your wealth, welfare and physical assets versus The Economy. -- the shared wealth, the investments you make with others, the "greater good." Or is it?

A country that cannot safely sustain itself through even this comparatively tiny amount of time and keep its citizens safe in the face of this monumental crisis ... needs to make some serious choices -- and without a doubt, some different ones. Life and death is as serious as it gets. And to demand (as "our leaders" are) that people place themselves in this kind of jeopardy for the sake of money is appalling.

This attitude is unconscionable. Maybe The Economy is the problem. Maybe the concept of MONEY ITSELF is the problem. Time for different choices. Srsly.

Full Moons present choices. They highlight conflicts & prompt you to make decisions to bring two competing areas of life back into balance. There's really no right answer to handling such a request from a Full Moon with its different priorities & values. But it does encourage you to take conscious stock of your situation & decide whether it's appropriate to your needs ... whether it actually suits you.

It's actually a friendly, gentle reminder from the Cosmos, noting that just living is complicated & things can become lopsided & unfair before we even realize it. Situations like that make life harder than it has to be -- & right now, nobody needs that. (Well, we don't ever really need that, but let's be realistic. It happens. Let's just stay aware & keep things as simple & even as possible. Life now is tougher.)

* Full Moon Conflicts -- Full Moon Tension through the Signs ---> Full Moon Conflicts ---> Aries Sun / Libra Moon = My ambitions, my drive for self-definition, my need to assert myself and my independence vs. my need to take other people into account, my desire for meaningful partnerships, my habitual efforts to compromise, keep the peace, and get along.

* Full Moon / New Moon? Or New Moon / Full Moon? -- Variations on the rhythms of life ---> Different rhythms ---> It's a subtle difference, I admit, but it's there nevertheless. Life's psychological rhythm has a different sequence, depending on whether the New Moon in a particular sign forms first, followed about two weeks later by the Full Moon ....
