Moon Day 7

On the whole, an auspicious day. It is a good day for starting a journey, and for everything to do with transport and vehicles. It is also good for surgery and medical treatment, for physical exercise and for everything which can be finished quickly. However, beware of telling others something you didn't really mean to tell them on this day.

Full Harvest Moon (October)

The Harvest Moon is the full Moon nearest the autumnal equinox and is bright enough to allow finishing all the harvest chores.

This is the full Moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox. In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October. At the peak of harvest, farmers can work late into the night by the light of this Moon. Usually the full Moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night, but for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the Moon seems to rise at nearly the same time each night: just 25 to 30 minutes later across the U.S., and only 10 to 20 minutes later for much of Canada and Europe. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice the chief Indian staples are now ready for gathering.
