Harvest Moon 2014 also a supermoon — and it’s Monday night

Tonight’s moon is not only a full moon but also a super Harvest Moon.

The Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox, which this year falls on Sept. 22 at 9:29 p.m. CDT.

The name Harvest Moon goes back to the days before electric lights. This time of year many crops ripen all at once, and farmers used to rely on moonlight to get the harvest in.

But the Moon is also the most important heavenly body to witches. They draw on her power for lunar magic. They cast Their spells in accord with her cycles. She inspires and illuminates them.

Why do Witches Celebrate the Harvest moon?

For Witches it is an especially powerful time for their spell work. The full moon itself represents to them the Goddess at her most fertile, luminous self. It is the perfect time for creating change. For Witches creating moon magic is always strongest at midnight. They usually use that time to start casting spells. The starting point is the most important one for witches to cast spells.

How Do they Honor the Harvest moon?

Witches celebrate the harvest moon as part of clearing the clutter in their minds and personal life. Since thoughts are turning to the comforts of home as the cold weather arrives for many bring their rituals into the area of their comfort zone, the home. For many it is in the kitchen.

Some will set up a small altar in a corner of the kitchen. They use simple ideas for their Harvest moon celebration. The altar is a focal point for them as hey attend to their work all throughout the cold months. Some find it easy to meditate at the alter during the harvest moon.

Witches honor a God at Harvest moon. Some choose Thoth, the God of the moon as the most befitting for their rituals. He is represented in different ways some see him in a small group of feathers wrapped in golden string.

As the wheel turns

Celebrating Mabon and Harvest moon is an important part of celebrating the wheel of the year. It is a natural transition towards the winter season and new year.
