Do you know David Crook's website, Stellar Insights?
You should.  I frequently mention him here on TracyAstroSalon.

Here is a smart piece he put up about this week's full moon.  Which is as he reminds us, The Harvest Moon.


Harvest Moon 2013

The Harvest Moon is the full moon that falls the closest to autumnal equinox. Full moon in Pisces will come on September 19, 2013 – at 11:13 Universal Time. The September equinox – the Northern Hemisphere’s autumn equinox – will be forthcoming on September 22, 2013, at 20:44 Universal Time. Although the full moon happens at the same instant worldwide, it also occurs at all hours around the clock, depending upon one’s time zone.

Previously mentioned, is the fact that dwarf planet Pluto is virtually stationary at the time of the Harvest Full Moon, and rising in the Syrian capital of Damascus. This is certainly a dark portent of extreme, life and death conditions.

In mythology, the god Pluto is symbolically linked with the harvest, as his release of the maiden Persephone from the underworld, and her subsequent reunion with her mother Demeter, corresponds with Spring when the seeds are sown, so they can later be harvested in the Fall. Moreover, Pluto (aka Hades) as lord of the underworld, has an affinity with the wealth and riches obtained from mining the earth- and the unconscious.

Before this Full Moon, Venus and Saturn conjoin on Sept. 16, followed shortly by a major conjunction of Saturn with the Moon's fateful North Node in Scorpio. Ideally, the latter aspect relates to getting on track with our long-term goals and destiny. Whereas, Venus-0-Saturn challenges the structural integrity of love and relationships- while strengthening those unions that are built on solid ties. Some fear or anxiety may arise if we are feeling insecure.

The Autumnal/Fall Equinox itself, is a time of balance and harmony as we enter the harvest season of Fall. Day of the Dead, Halloween, and Thanksgiving are all holidays created to celebrate the harvest- while acknowledging that birth, death, and renewal, is the eternal process wherein we may consciously participate.
