Harvest Moon: Virgo/Pisces

harvest1

The term “Harvest Moon” came to mind while cycling home late yesterday evening. What’s a harvest Moon? That’s exactly what I thought. Excuse me for using Wiki….  Cycling can go well with brainstorming. Especially if its a dark, windy night.

Think Virgo and thoughts of harvest immediately spring to mind. It must have something to do with the fastidiousness involved. In a distant past, the survival of the tribe depended on the harvest and it was one of the most important periods of the farmer’s year. This is when human beings – in the Northern Hemisphere in any case – were able to  receive nature’s bounty. The extra light at harvest Moon must have assisted farmers in bringing in their crops.

Pisces stands on the other end of the spectrum. In this context, to me Pisces symbolises the fruitful corn itself. The store of golden wheat that carries within it the promise of new life and a whole new season. This while winter looms ahead.  Pisces is about promise and the act of faith. Faith in the natural order of things. What goes round, comes round.

Today’s Full Moon is this year’s harvest Moon and by looking at where this Full Moon falls in the chart – we might symbolically allow ourselves a bit of extra slack. The extra light has to increase our perceptiveness and our awareness. Symbolically speaking, perhaps we have a little more time at our disposal than we might have imagined. This Full Moon – is about trying to allow faith and reason to co-exist. We should strive for excellence (Virgo) while being aware that lillies flower in the dirt. Too much self criticism has the ability disempower us.

It’s a truth we do not always consider, but we don’t always have to work hard and be diligent (Virgo) Remember that some of the important things in life are offered to us, free of charge, as a gift (Pisces).
