The September Full Moon: A Harvest of Energy

Before we embark on our lunar journey, let’s take a moment to appreciate the significance of the September Full Moon. This full moon occurs as the days grow shorter, marking the shift from summer’s warmth to autumn’s cool embrace. It’s a time of balance, where the sun and moon share the sky, casting a soft, golden light on the world.

The September Full Moon, sometimes known as the Harvest Moon, arrives close to the autumnal equinox. It bathes us and the world in a gentle, luminous light and glow, symbolizing the culmination of the harvest season and the start of a new cycle. Its energy is a delicate balance between letting go of the old and welcoming the new, it signifies a time of reflection, gratitude, and a shift in energy as we transition into the fall season.

Celebrating the September Full Moon

Full moons are known for their potent energy, often associated with illumination, culmination, and transformation. The September Full Moon, in particular, radiates energies of balance and harmony. It encourages us to seek equilibrium in our lives, nurturing both our inner and outer worlds. Here’s how to harness the energy of this September Full Moon:

  1. Release and Let Go: Use this full moon to release what no longer serves you. Write down things you wish to let go of—old habits, negative emotions, or any obstacles in your path. Burn the paper as a symbolic act of release.
  1. Setting Intentions: As the full moon signifies abundance and fruition, set intentions for the season ahead. What do you wish to manifest during the autumn months? Write your intentions on a separate piece of paper and keep it in a special place.
  1. Meditation Under the Moonlight: Find a quiet spot outdoors or by an open window. Allow the moon’s gentle light to wash over you as you meditate on gratitude for the past season’s blessings and invite abundance and clarity for the future. Meditate on what you’d like to release or invite into your life. Visualize your intentions in the moon’s ethereal light. Feel free to improvise and create a safe, magical and relaxing space for yourself, let that inner Goddess inside of you light the way for you.
  1. Moonlit Reflection: Find a tranquil outdoor spot or a cozy nook by a window where you can bask in the moon’s glow. Light up some candles, your favorite incense, put on some music (preferably with no words, just melody), take your journal and get ready to connect with yourself and the moonlight. With a journal in hand, reflect on your goals, desires, and intentions for the upcoming season. Write them down, releasing them into the moonlit universe.  
    1. Full Moon Yoga: Practice a soothing session of full moon yoga under the open sky. Allow the moon’s energy to flow through you as you move through gentle stretches and poses, promoting relaxation and self-awareness. Once finished, allow yourself to soak in the full moon’s light and energy, visualizing how it cleanses your chakras, your spiritual, physical, and energetic bodies.

    1. Lunar Bath: Draw a warm bath infused with your favorite calming essential oils, Epsom salt or other bath salts, choose whatever feels right to you. Light some candles, pour some charged full-moon water, play soothing music, and soak in the moonlit atmosphere. Use this time for self-care, reflection, and releasing any negativity. Visualize any tension or negativity being washed away.  
      1. Moonlit Stroll: Take a peaceful nighttime walk under the September Full Moon. Let its gentle light guide your way as you connect with the natural world and find inspiration in its beauty. Let yourself feel whatever comes up and ask the moon to wash it away with its divine light.

      1. Crystal Cleansing: Place your crystals in the moonlight to cleanse and recharge them. The energy of the full moon can purify and revitalize your crystal collection.  
        1. Harvest Altar: Create a small altar in your home with seasonal symbols such as gourds, leaves, and grains. Light candles and place your intentions for the coming season on the altar. Or if you’re feeling super witchy, make a Simmer Pot! You can find the detailed instruction on how to make one in the previous blog post.
