Harvest Moon Gifts

Harvest MoonCan you here the refrain from Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” playing in your head?

The opening verse holds some of the energy of this Pisces Harvest Moon on Thursday, September 19.

“Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin’
We could dream this night away.”

Dream or Illusion?

Pisces energy can feel a little dreamy or sleepy and draw us into the deep slumber of illusion.  The catch?  Neptune is retrograde right now so it is a GREAT time to cast aside illusions.  Especially the ones you hold about yourself that make you feel small, unworthy, etc. 

Because Neptune is retrograde, it is easier to access the part of you that can see through the illusions.  That part of you also knows that continuing to operate under them may pull you into old or addictive behaviors not for your highest good, or the highest good of anybody for that matter.

Pisces, ruled by Neptune, heightens your Spiritual connection and orientation to the world.  Grandmother moon and your guides may be singing a little Neil Young, wanting you to hear what they have to say. 

Grandmother Moon’s Musings  

“Darling, your dreams are not illusions.  Your dreams of making a difference in this world are not illusions.  The illusion is all the “can’t” stuff your saboteurs hound and pound you about.  Nonsense like unworthiness, it’s too late or scarcity.  Dream.  Dream fully.  Dream every day.  Let me help you release the illusions!” 

The three places to look for illusions during this full moon phase:

  1. What emotion is holding you hostage or creating an illusion of “I can’t” about a dream in your life?
  2. What “truth” about you is hiding out in the periphery of consciousness, as if being unveiled by a lifting fog?
  3. What do you choos to create next in your life?  (Time to dream!)

With the Harvest Moon so quickly followed by the Fall Equinox on Sunday, September 22, it is vital to relieve yourself of lingering illusions that are in any way self-diminishing.  Or energy-robbing. 

The two-step opportunity?  Open internal space by ditching the old illusions making room for your DREAM, which then makes room for the equality, balance and equanimity offered by the Equinox.

Please post a comment sharing what illusion you are ditching, what DREAM you are acknowledging and what you want to create next in your life! 

I’m ditching the illusion that TIME rules my life.  I am acknowledging the dream impact for my book, The Ovarian Chronicles.

In the meantime, have fun with the Self-Blessing and Happy Full Mooning and Fall Equinox!
