Harvest Moon & Heatwave

Posted on

As we are well into September and like the golden arches, I am lovin' it.  September being the month full of harvesting, the leaves are being to turn, and the nights are turning chilly. The autumn equinox brings with it the shifting winds of change. 

September always motivates me to bake bread, make jam and channel Fanny Craddock to prepare for the Winter. I am not a kitchen witch, in fact, it’s the least likely place you will find me. Want to hide my Yule gifts? Try the kitchen cupboards or pantry.  The kitchen in my house now belongs to my grown up son, who has rolled his eyes repeatedly over the last week as I have been filling the sides with jars of this and that, herb debris strewn across most surfaces, an apron wearing me trying to work out how many pumpkins can I actually fit on the windowsill. 

The full Harvest moon has arrived bringing with it the heat of a late summer heatwave. This full moon is in Pisces.  A water sign, with the keywords of sensitivity, intuition, forgiveness and compassion.   Emotional and physical decluttering is the theme of the Harvest moon, preparing ourselves for the long winter nights ahead of us. In preparation, I clearly changed over my wardrobe with delight I may add, a few weeks too early. As I was wearing a jumper this morning, in my haste to stomp amongst the leaves and order some fancy hot chocolate from the local diner.

However, you are spending this warm late summer evening, I wish you abundance, and hope that your harvests bear fruit! I am off to galivant around my garden and charge in the light of the moon.
