What is the autumnal equinox? How will it affect my mood?

Are you ready to get all celestial and wizardry this month and find your inner magician!?

⁠Whether you fully immerse or just like to dip in and out of watching the crazy, beautiful night sky. As September's full moon, the harvest moon, falls right now, this also marks the arrival of the September equinox and beginning of the astronomical autumn. The long summer nights have passed and we are now entering a season of transition, and the official beginning of Autumn.  

The Harvest Moon is the name given to the full moon that occurs nearest to the autumnal equinox. Historically the light of the Harvest Moon was said to enable farmers to work late into the night, helping them to bring in the crops from the fields.

What is the autumnal equinox?
During the autumnal equinox, the sun shines directly on the equator, and the northern and southern hemispheres get the same amount of rays. In fact, there are only two points in the year the Sun will illuminate the northern and southern hemispheres equally. These are known as the equinoxes.

Spiritually Autumn's Equinox represents both the equilibrium of day and night and the balance of lightness and darkness in ourselves and in our lives. An amazing time of reflection and looking at what we want to let go of and what we want to nurture coming into the wintertime months.

Soon it will be a new moon, new month, new intentions! What are you calling in? As this weekend marks the start of a new moon but also the last quarter of this year.
