October 5 Full Moon is the HARVEST MOON this year๐๐๐ The nights are getting longer as the darkness of the #Autumn Season is settling in.
These are pretty intense and dynamic times. The recent events in America, paired with the full moon energy may be causing conflicted and intense emotions within many. Especially if you are an #empath
The cycle presented to us on the last new #moon was one of healing. And while the term healing often makes us think of rest and relaxation, this #fullmoon is asking us to take action towards that healing.
Has instructions on creating your own Moondala. Highly recommended!๐๐ ๐
๐๐๐๐๐๐๐๐๐๐๐๐ Full Moon: Abundance, #harvest wish-fulfillment, #manifesting desires, sexuality, achieving all dreams, #protection ๐๐๐๐๐๐๐๐๐๐๐๐ According to the #OldFarmersAlmanac (source), the name of the full moon in October is usually " #HuntersMoon ," as #October is when people would hunt to store food for winter. However, this year is a bit out of the ordinary, and we'll have a #HarvestMoon instead.
The Harvest Moon is defined as the full moon that falls closest to the #autumnequinox which happened on Sept. 22. Usually September's full moon is called the Harvest Moon, but this year, it just so happened that October's full moon is closer to the equinox. So, September's full moon was named the " #CornMoon " instead, and the next Hunter's Moon won't happen until October 2018.
Native people in North America had several different associations and names for the full moons. According to the Ontario Native Literacy Coalition, the #Ojibwe peoples called October's full moon the Mskawji Giizis, or the Freezing Moon, as the weather changes and first frosts occur at this time. #Cree people called it Pimahamowipisim, or the Migrating Moon, as in northeastern North America, many bird species start migrating south for the winter in October. In the Pacific Northwest, the #Tlingit called the #lunation of October the #BigMoon while the #Haida called the month the #IceMoon ๐๐๐
