Full Moons always capture our attention and imagination no matter when they occur during the year. However it seems that those full on lunar displays that occur around special days, such as the Solstices and Equinoxes, have a much more profound impact on our actions, spirits and psyches.
The Full Moon that occurs on September 19 is the full moon that is closest to the Autumn Equinox which, this year, occurs just three days later. Known by many names this heralding beacon of the night illuminates the start of the fall season and, with it, a reminder that this year, tumultuous, as it has been, has an end in sight. The energies that the Moon’s full face will bring to the fore will be felt both on a global and personal scale in both immediate and subtle ways compelling us all to look skyward.
