September 22 brings the Fall Equinox and September 24/25 brings the rise of the full Harvest Moon. In celebration of the change in seasons we’re declaring that we’ll never be over the moon (see what we did there?). Of course, we’re over the moon for moons and always have been. Remember this Moon Phase LOVE IT list? We the love moon so much, we even have a collection dedicated to it.
So, what do all of these lunar changes have in store? The Fall Equinox marks the beginning of shorter days until Winter Solstice in December. With less sunlight, we’ll start to see the true signs of autumn in Canada with vibrantly hued leaves and cooler temperatures. And what about the Harvest Moon? This year it will appear to be orange as it shines bright (although it’s not really orange). The Harvest Moon is a reminder to do just what the name states. Harvest all that this bountiful season offers (cheers from the pumpkin and apple lovers). As the chaos of summer and new routines dissipates, the Harvest Moon gives you the opportunity to relax, slow down and reflect. Depending on your sign, that may be easier said then done ;) Enjoy autumn, swell friends.
