More often, the September's full moon is known by the name “harvest moon” because this is the prime harvest season for crops. But 2020 happens to be one of those years, where the moon calendar is a out of whack. This week will be known as the corn moon. The harvest moon name will be reserved for the next full moon, which is on the 1st of October 2020.
We get two full moons in October 2020 — so the second one will be a blue moon
making an appearance on October 31st 2020. HALLOWEEN!!
The Corn Moon will be 100% full on Wednesday night 2nd September 2020.
Harvest moon name gets switched around between September and October every few years,
depending on which full moon appears closest to the date of the Autumn Equinox. The equinox occurs when the sun rises directly over the equator, bringing an equal amount of daylight and darkness hours in the northern and southern hemispheres on that day.
As the summer begins winding down, we’ve made it through the first harvest of Lammas and now it’s time to think about bringing in the next phase of crops. Grain is ready to be baked into bread. If you have a garden, pick your herbs and veggies, so you can preserve or dry them before the cooler days set in. Gather your herbs and hang them in a dark place to dry, so you can use them all winter, either for magical needs or culinary ones.
This full moon we focus on spiritual, psychological, and emotional wellbeing. Therefore, it’s important for us all to connect to our dreams and subconscious. A calming bath and dream journaling will allow us to bring our inner visions to forward.
