It’s Harvest Full Moon!

Full moon is always a time for setting your intentions for things you would like to bring into your life.  Light a candle and recite some positive words to bring good luck, and bring renewed positivity and optimism into your life.

Ireland is a place that overflows with magic and ritual, and the full moon is no exception.  Its a time for visiting sacred sites and nature, to pay respects to mother earth.  Its a time when bonfires and celebrations abound !

The harvest moon is the first full moon of autumn and is still a time when the crops are harvested in haste before the shorter days and the winter cold and rains descended on the lands.

Yet another highly unusual event is headed our way in this extremely bizarre year. The 2020 Halloween full moon will be visible to the entire world, rather than just parts of it, for the first time since World War II, astronomy educator and former planetarium director Jeffrey Hunt says. And you can get a preview of the holiday event beginning Thursday, Oct. 1, when the month’s first full moon — romantically called the “harvest moon” — will be visible.

This full moon will appear full for about three days, beginning around 5 p.m. ET (10:05pm Dublin time) on Oct. 1 and running through Saturday morning, Oct. 3, NASA says. The harvest moon is the name given for the full moon closest to the start of fall. It usually occurs in September, but this year, it’s showing up in October. And it’s just a preview for the second full moon of the month, the Halloween full moon, known as the blue moon because it’s the second full moon of the same month.
