The harvest moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox (in the northern hemisphere).  It is the first full moon closest to that equinox. About once every four years it occurs in October, depending on the cycles of the moon.

The harvest moon seems to be bigger, brighter and more colourful than other full moons. This caused by light from the moon passing through an increased number of dense atmospheric particles, which creates an illusion. The atmosphere refracts the moonlight (which is really reflected white light from the sun), and this allows the reddish component of the light to be seen.


Blessed be the goddess who watches over us and who lovingly gifts us visions and dreams and speaks to us through our intuition.


May your night be touched with magick


love light and hugs

  • Yes it is and I am really looking forward to it, I am in great need of some of moon's amazing energy, we have had some really clear nights this past week so i am hoping that it will remain that way, officially the moon will be at her fullest at 5.30 am on 12th Sept so I will probably do my ritual on the evening of the 12th (tomorrow evening)...


  • It is almost full moon LOL



    have a blessed evening
