Blessings from the Holy Isle of Avalon. The altar above was offered with Love from Achintya & Sunshine.
The Pisces Harvest Full Moon is exact today, Friday, September 13th at 9:33 pm PDT. With this full moon in Pisces in final sign of the zodiac, along with the medicine of the Harvest Moon, we are able to reap the joys, lessons, insight, and experiences from all the previous signs (and the past 6 months since the last Equinox) and receive lunar codes of inspiration for your sacred service in the world.
Looking at the symbol for Pisces, with one fish swimming downstream and another swimming upstream, we can see this as an invitation to enter into the power of experiencing life beyond duality by incorporating both the inner and the outer realms, the light and the dark, the highs and the lows, the up and the down, and synthesize the wisdom of polarity, (like 2 magnets coming together in their opposite nature) and the alchemy of fire and water with celebration.
Sister, you are a daughter of the infinite Goddess. At this Full Moon, your presence here now invites the awakening of and reclamation of all of you. Your shadow, light and, the rainbow spectrum in between them both. With the Moon in Pisces and Sun in Virgo, you are being blessed to receive this lunar medicine to empower and nourish your priestess path and the sacred dreams you hold for yourself and the world.
Drink lots of water. Get into WATER. Be in NATURE. Be present with your breath and the rhythm of your sleep patterns. Rest and exercise. Meditate. Take care to be in stillness in the mornings to recall your dreams, deep insight is there for you. Breathe deeply and check in with your inner voice when needing to make major choices. Accept. Surrender. Release. Celebrate.

Harvest Moon Ritual Suggestions
Gratitude Harvest Altar & Release: Gather fruits and vegetables. Flowers and grains. Create an altar of abundance, representing all you are in gratitude of. List all the things you are grateful for in your life from this year so far and place this in the moonlight (outside or window) to attract more experiences to be grateful for. Write down all the things you are ready to release, change or shift and either bury them, burn them or offer them to a body of water.
Dream Speak: Pay close attention to your dreams tonight and through the weekend. Record them in a journal and speak them out loud. Only by writing them down or speaking them will the sometimes subtle (or not so subtle) meaning and message be revealed to you.
Make Space: Time to go through your cupboards, closet, garage etc... and let go of the excess. Spaciousness feels so good and you open yourself up to more internal power and creative life-force.
Be Still: With so much frequency shift happening now, simply closing your eyes to pay attention to your breath to pause for 5 minutes will do wonders for your nervous system (especially if you can do this 3 times a day, and longer than 5 if possible. Do what you can). Make sure to get a long and full sleep.
Tea Medicine: Drinking Tulsi & Gotu Kola herbal tea will soothe your nerves and calm your spirit. This also allows you to open up to magical and bountiful blessings being offered.
Earthing Creativity: Illuminate your dreams and get into your body! Create a vision board or a painting or dance or write in your journal all that you are bringing with you into the next season ahead. Place this out into the moonlight/speak it/sing out loud.
Moon Bathe: Get into the magic of the moonlight and absorb her luminous, activating, soul-stirring and healing balm. Look to the moon and speak the visions and dreams that you see for yourself and for the planet.
Remember: Put out your gem stones and jewels in a window or in water for cleansing, renewal, and activation. Place an apple and glass of water in the moonlight and have it for a 'Moon Wisdom' breakfast the next morning.
Commune: Gather in an intentional way with loved ones and do any of the above together and create your own. Now can be a powerful time to be with the energy of the collective. (See invitation below).
Full Moon rituals can be done the day before, day of ,and day after the actual full moon. This is the 3 day potency period. Blessings to you in this wondrous and magical time.
With Full Moon Love, Achintya
