Happy hellos and a very Merry Meet Monday to everyone!
On the night of Tuesday, September 1st into Wednesday, September 2nd we will be blessed with the light of the September Full Corn Moon!
While not the harvest moon (coming next month!), this moon has an interesting history and can be used in powerful full moon rituals and spells. You can learn more on the Full Corn Moon Spells8 Page- including history, potential uses, and even a lovely coloring page!
To find the exact time of the full moon in your region, you can use the Old Farmer’s Almanac’s Moon Phase Calendar
~Celtic Tree Month~
With the full moon, on Wednesday, September 2nd we leave behind the Hazel Month and pass into the Vine Month. The Celtic Vine Month will last until September 29th and marks the time of the harvest
Learn Religions says the following about the Vine Month:
The Vine month is a time of great harvest — from the grapes of the Mediterranean to the fruits of the northern regions, the Vine produces fruits we can use to make that most wondrous concoction called wine. The Celts called this month Muin . The Vine is a symbol of both happiness and wrath — passionate emotions, both of them. Do magical workings this month connected to the Autumn Equinox, or Mabon, and celebrate garden magic, joy and exhilaration, wrath and rage, and the darker aspect of the mother goddess. Use the leaves of the Vines to enhance your own ambition and goals. during this month. The month of Vine is also a good time to get balanced, as there are equal hours of darkness and light.
