Harvest Moon – Sept 29th Full Moon in Aries

Aries Full Harvest MoonSeptember 29: Full Moon, 10:19 pm, 7° Aries

September 2012 is the Harvest Moon, and is also known as the Full Corn Moon.

The Harvest Moon isn’t always in September, since it is the full Moon nearest the autumnal equinox.  In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October. It can occur in September or October and is bright enough to allow finishing all the harvest chores.

The Runic Calendar of Nordic traditions, (which is governed by half months rather than full months), divides this moon of the year by Gyfu (Gift) from September 28th through October 12th. Gyfu is also the rune of Odin, the all-father.

Aries is the sign of the Ram, a Masculine sign: outwardly expressive or extroverted. It’s element is Fire, which brings with it high energy, warmth, vision and intuition. Not only active, but a bit pushy and impulsive, and sometimes thoughtless as the Ram runs through any obstacles in its path. Some careful planning before entering Aries Moon is a good idea, to ensure you get the emotional push without running anyone over.

But this isn’t just any Aries full moon. It will be conjunct with Uranus which is a planet of change. Joined with the ram, think sudden, shocking or surprising transformation. Think, instead of just Aries fire, more of a spark or even explosion. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Since you know what’s coming, you can be ready to shift some boulders which have been in your way. With preperation and focus it is a good time for self-transformation, so use that energy to your benefit!
