Full Harvest Supermoon 2023
The Full Harvest Supermoon will reach peak illumination around 2:58am PT on Friday, 9/29. It is expected to put on quite the show and will appear entirely illuminated through Saturday morning!
The spiritual meaning woven into this month’s Full Moon honors balance and abundance. The Harvest Moon is a time to honor and appreciate our homes, reconnect with our Creator, and reflect and focus on all we are grateful for - in this moment. It encourages us to think about what we’ve achieved internally and externally - and then focus on releasing what no longer serves our highest Calling or Divine Purpose. This call becomes even louder as we step gently into the changing of seasons. I’m so excited to prepare my sweaters, scarves, and berets for the cooler months ahead - how about you?
This month’s Full Moon is also a wonderful time to realign with our Spirit, Soul, and Self… to settle us into a much slower pace and rhythm. Essentially, the September Harvest Full Supermoon is inspiring us to balance the outside world with what’s inside us. It is the perfect time to recognize and honor the exhilaration of achieving our goals and embracing change when those goals shift.
Here are some of my favorite journal prompts and activities to honor and celebrate this season…
1: What would I like to complete before the cold and darkness of winter arrives?
2: How do I want to celebrate Autumn this year?
Ideas to get you started:
Take photos on your favorite tree-lined street when the leaves change colors
Collect leaves in the colors of the rainbow and frame them
Gather fallen bark or leaves to write your intentions on in the months ahead
Create a beautiful tablescape or fill a bowl with items found in nature (pix below!)
Learn a new soup recipe or how to make your own pumpkin spiced lattes at home
Fill your herb garden with parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme, so you have fresh herbs for Thanksgiving
3: What accomplishments, skills, and creative endeavors do I want to bring with me into the Autumn season?
Ideas to get you started:
Learn or do something new!
Try new pumpkin carving techniques
Level up your Halloween decorations
Take a MasterClass on a new topic
Learn the magical healing properties of the herbs you’re growing
4: What bad habits, regrets, and negative thoughts will you release? (Beloved, it is okay to let go.)
Activity: A burning ceremony!
Details on how to prepare your own ritual are in this post.
An added prayer to repeat this during the ritual:
“I release the thoughts that no longer serve me or help me in reaching my highest potential. I call in abundance and positivity for this new month ahead.”
A final bonus!
One of my favorite things to create is an Autumn mantra to repeat on my nature walks. Here are a couple of examples:
“Be still enough to notice, quiet enough to listen, and open enough to receive."
"Listen more, sing louder, walk softly, hold closer, kiss longer... and make value-aligned decisions.”
If you decide to write one, I would love to hear it...
Wrapping You in Love + Light,
