“In the Yogic tradition, the Equinox is seen as a day when one has the best possibilities of transcending the limitations and compulsions of one’s physical longings.” ~Sadhguru
A Harvest Moon happens just before the Autumn Equinox, which signals the start of a new season, and the name is linked to a lag time between moonrise and sunset at this time of year. Hence, it’s called ‘Harvest’ Moon.” The Harvest Moon also coincides with the astronomical arrival of autumn, marked by the Autumn Equinox on September 23 this year. The equinox occurs when the Sun is closest to the equator and crosses the celestial equator overhead at noon.
The harvest moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox, which is September 23 this year 2019. Historically, the word harvest is significant because farmers used the light of the full moon to work into the night and gather ripened crops.
Can’t you feel the spiritual energy begin to rise now that autumn is fast approaching? This is the season that starts a slow, patient process of death after a vibrant and burgeoning summer. However, this death is not the end. It’s about shedding skin, letting go, and cleansing yourself from deep within so you can prepare for a swift rebirth. The veil is thinning, and the spiritual meaning of the 2019 Harvest Moon will help you dig into your heart and discover what truly lies there.
This full moon marked the moment your ancient ancestors collected their crops and began storing them away for the impending winter. Spiritually speaking, the Harvest Moon is all about taking stock of your emotional and physical well-being, helping you come to terms with the results of the decisions you’ve made so far. After that, it’s about understanding what you could have done differently, forgive yourself for your mistakes, and decide that you’ll learn from them.
This is still a full moon, which means it’s a time marked by overwhelming emotions, volatility, and unexpected twists and turns. It’s a moment of culmination and revelation, meaning that a situation may be coming to a head and a light will shine itself on the truth. Although the aftermath of a full moon can feel difficult to accept, it’s always meant to point you in the right direction. If something is taken away from you, remember that, truthfully, you might not really want it in the first place. When you realize what else the universe has in store, you might be glad it never worked out.
Equinox means” equal” days and nights. This is a time of balancing in our life, a time when energies come together as one – Heaven & Earth, Spirit & Matter. Equinoxes are opposites on either side of the equator, so the September Equinox is:-Autumnal (fall) equinox in the Northern Hemisphere (where people are bringing their energy inward, in preparation for the rest ahead) and, the Spring (Vernal) Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere (where people are preparing for their rebirths, as they awaken from their winter sleep).
Twice each year, during the equinox window, as the Sun passes over the equator the magnetic energies of both hemispheres are at their lowest potency. This means for about 24 hours before and after the exact Equinox point it is easier to connect with other dimensions of reality energizing otherworldly magic that can holistically benefit the Earth.
As such the Equinox is a powerful portal gateway to ascension into higher levels of consciousness. At this time of unity, the feminine & masculine merge as one, opening opportunities to unify duality within ourselves, and expand our awareness to greater dimensional/light octave levels. Ancient cultures and traditions around the world honoured the cycle of the seasons, placing a key emphasis on these turning points of Solstices and Equinoxes. The entire journey the Earth makes around the Sun represents the cycles of light and darkness, as well as death, life, and rebirth.
There’s an incredible energy of balance that is created. Balance that creates an opening allowing higher levels of crystalline solar light to reach us in the physical. And it creates a beautiful opening to re-centre, gets clear and realigns with the highest timeline and possibilities moving into the future. The Equinox energy is essentially an ascension trigger; for humanity and the planet! With each passing Equinox, a new wave of balance, light and an opportunity to transcend illusion and step into more of our authentic truth and soul light emerges.
“There is an opening, an energy gate, and there will be more. This is a part of restoring the divine blueprint for your world… Peaking on the progressing equinoxes, the crystalline energies that have lain dormant for so long are being activated.” ~Archangel Metatron channelled by Melanie Beckler
Addressing the Equinox as well the Harvest Moon in my present, because the energy is strongly felt. I felt it needed more explanation to shed some light on the more spiritual meaning behind this event. I have been reading up through different articles to bring in some coherent and inspirational elements together. I always am aligned with the Moon phases if I can remember. May this bring in some clarity when the experiences are not always linked to certain phases of Nature and the deeper layers.I'd like to receive weekly articles in my inbox
