Happy Full Corn Moon in Pisces, September 1st 2020 September 1, 2020 19:11

Happy Full Moon!
Dolphin and Black Tourmaline
The full moon will peak at 10:23pm PST tonight, September 1st, in the water sign, Pisces.  Depending on where you are in the world, the full moon may peak tomorrow for you.  Here's a link to www.foreverconscious.com's Pisces Full Moon Ritual.
According to the Old Farmer's Almenac, this moon is named because it happens around the same time of the year as the corn harvest.  "The full Moon that happens nearest to the autumnal equinos (September 22 or 23) always takes on the name “Harvest Moon” instead of a traditional name—a rule that often places the Harvest Moon in the month of September. However, when September’s full Moon occurs early in the month, the full Moon of early October lands nearest to the autumnal equinox and therefore takes on the Harvest Moon title instead. 

That’s the case in 2020, when October will experience two full Moons: one on October 1 (the Harvest Moon) and the other on the 31st (the Hunter’s Moon and a  Blue Moon, too)!"

 
Here's what my favorite astrologists have to say about this full moon:

Black Tourmaline is a talisman of protection.  It acts as a psychic mirror, deflecting negative energies and entities.  It protects against emotional vampires, a perfect stone for empaths.  It also guards against EMFs, radiation and pollutants.  Black Tourmaline helps to turn one’s own negative thoughts and internal conflicts into positive energy.  Black Tourmaline is both an Earth and Root Chakra stone.  Black tourmaline is a great stone to use for healing work as it realigns the chakras from crown to root.  Also known as "Schorl", it's an incredibly powerful stone of protection.  It wards off negative energy, psychic attacks, emotional vampires, curses, ghosts and ill wishes.  A great stone for empaths, it helps protect you from other peoples' energies and emotions so the empath doesn't take them on as their own.  Ancient magicians believed that Black Tourmaline would protect them from “earth demons” as they cast their spells.  Black Tourmaline balances the left and right brain hemispheres and helps turn negative thoughts into positive ones.  It also repels against electromagnetic energies from electronics and computers as well as radiation and pollution.  A very grounding stone, it eases anxiety and stress as well as alleviates panic attacks.  It must be cleansed often.

According to, www.spirit-animals.com, "In general, Dolphin symbolism is a reminder that you need to get out with your peers and family and play. In other words, most of us, as adults, take our responsibilities very seriously and end up focusing on our work and families. Therefore, the Dolphin meaning is letting you know that you have to take time out and play. After all, this spirit animal insists that laughter, joy, movement, and engaging your mind on fun is the best way to relieve stress and regroup.

Alternatively, Dolphin symbolism is prompting you to balance and harmonize your environment. In this case, one of the best ways that you can do this is by practicing love for each other. To clarify, find ways that you can help the young, the sick, by providing guidance, healing, and companionship. In other words, join a peaceful community today and celebrate how much we are all alike, instead of focusing on our differences."  

Dolphin also represents,

"Balance, Community, Contentment, Creativity, Curiosity, Friendship, Generosity, Gentleness, Grace, Harmony, Intelligence, Language, Letting Go, Newness, Playfulness, Power, Resurrection, Rhythm, Sexuality, Transcendence."
