The Pumpkins, squash, and beans are ready for harvest. And the bright light of the Harvest Moon allows us the extra time needed to finish the harvest. The leaves on the trees begin to turn color. The Summer’s sunshine gives way to the fall’s Darkening evenings.
The Harvest Full Moon is a time to find balance in our lives, of settling into a slower rhythm after the Summer’s adventures. It is a time of giving thanks and enjoying the abundance in our lives.

August Stars & Constellations (1)

In Texas, I used to do a lot of stargazing in the Dallas suburbs. The best time was always when the Moon was new or crescent. Believe it or not, I still could make out the major constellations in the urban sky. When we moved to Connecticut, I lost this interest a little bit. Mainly, it has to do with making myself familiar with the angle of the stars & constellations. Another problem is the tall trees on our property. I might have to ask my neighbor if I can sit on a camping chair on the big rock in her front yard or go up to Mt. Fair to get a better view of the sky. It would be sad if I completely lost interest in the night sky.

The Full Buck Supermoon 2022

Buck Moon, Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, Blessing Moon, Meadow Moon

The herbs grow tall in the forests and along the river beds. The male deer regrow their antlers as Summer peeks and matures. The Summer weather rolls across the landscape as it encourages nature to grow and produce. As the Moon waxes, we draw in the expensive energy of adventure and exploration. We spend time in the woods and at the beach. We hike and work in our gardens. As the Moon wanes, we release any judgment we may have about enjoying the playful spirit of Summer. But we also balance that with dream work, meditation, and slow gentle walks.
