September Full Moon – 2017

Today, 6 September 2017, is the day of the Full Moon.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are moving rapidly towards the Autumn Equinox, and in a Mediterranean climate specifically it is the time of the pressing of the grapes to create new wine.  We are at the time when the Greeks would have celebrated the Mysteries of Eleusis which we have only been handed down titillating tidbits since initiates were bound by secrecy.

However, we know enough to safely say that these Mysteries celebrated the fact that life is everlasting and that those participating got a taste of their own immortality. The rituals also included prayers for the rains – so vital for the Earth to conceive new life and for a new agricultural cycle to start.

Zodiacally, the sun is in Virgo and the moon will be in Pisces, and these two signs are known as the “axis of healing” – for more about the astrological aspect of this full moon, you may be interested in this video by Acquafortis Astrology

On this full moon, take some time to get in touch with your inner healer and ask for guidance in using healing energies – which can be our words, our thoughts, our intentions, our touch, our inner force…
