The ocean, with its boundless expanse, carries within its depths a profound energy of cleansing. As waves rhythmically kiss the shore and retreat, they seem to carry away not only grains of sand, but also the burdens that we carry within ourselves.

The sound of crashing waves is like a soothing chant, inviting us to release our worries and fears. With each foamy embrace, the ocean whispers, “Let go.” Salt-laden winds gently sweep away the cobwebs of our minds, leaving a sense of renewal in their wake.

As we immerse ourselves in the ocean’s embrace, its cool waters wrap around us like a comforting embrace from nature itself. The ebb and flow of the tides mirror the cycles of life, reminding us that just as the ocean renews itself, so too can we find a renewal of spirit.

Staring out at the horizon where sea meets sky, we become aware of our place in the universe—a small part of something vast and eternal. The ocean’s cleansing energies invite us to reflect on our journey, to release that which no longer serves us, and to find solace in the rhythm of nature’s timeless embrace.

Warrior Children- Amongst the tides, where seabirds soar, Where warrior children learn the lore, In echoes of the past, we find, The bonds that tie our souls combined. ~Freyja, WildEarthSong 2023

~ September's Astrology Spotlight ~

Excerpts from: Bustle.com

Welcome to the last third of 2023, star babes! As we flip our calendars over to September, we’ll have a whopping six planets retrograding (seven if you count the minor planet Chiron), so there is a lot of collective processing and reviewing going on, both socially and subconsciously. Thankfully though, September’s cosmic skies slowly but surely begin to clear, ensuring you’re able to fully enjoy the final shimmers of summer and embrace the first flickers of fall. Changes are on the horizon, so you’ll want the scoop on the major astrological events of September 2023.

September begins fresh off the vibes of the emotional full blue moon that peaks on Aug. 30, but the pragmatic and down-to-earth energy of Virgo season is still reigning supreme through the first few weeks of the month. Unfortunately, that classic Virgoan clarity and productivity may be in short supply until the last week of the season, as Mercury retrograde is still busy dizzying up little details and throwing wrenches in even the most perfectly laid-out plans until Sept. 15. Dot your I's, cross your T's, and proofread those texts!

Speaking of retrograde activity, September is chock-full of it, as Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Chiron are all in various stages of their moonwalks as we kick off the month. Venus retrograde wraps up on Sept. 3, bringing some momentum to our love lives, but is immediately replaced by Jupiter retrograde on the following day. And while Mercury retrograde’s messiness is marring the first half of the month, the Mercury-sun conjunction on Sept. 6 marks a bright spot in this retrograde cycle, bringing a moment of clarity or a helpful realization.

Once Libra season starts on Sept. 22 PT and heralds in the autumnal equinox, it’s time to focus on bringing more balance, peace, and harmony to your life. However, the bold and brazen full Harvest Moon in Aries on Sept. 29 gives you a chance to step up and be a leader in your own life, even if it means having to slightly rock the boat.

The first three weeks of September comprise the bulk of the Virgo season, which generally puts people into a more practical, productive, and health-conscious state of mind. Virgo zodiac energy is grounded and attentive, so this last stretch of summer can be well-utilized for getting organized and tidying up any messy areas of your life. Clean out your closets, calendars, and emotional cache to make space for the new season ahead!

The sun and Mercury will join forces in Virgo on Sept. 6, forming what’s known as a Mercury cazimi. This brings an illuminating moment of clarity and perhaps even some mental breakthroughs on issues you’ve struggled to make sense of.

New Moon in Virgo

The Mercury cazimi is an early September highlight, but the new moon on Sept. 14 is perhaps even more exciting. The last major lunation of the summer finds the sun and moon joining forces in Virgo territory, and it’s a beautiful opportunity to start making plans and sowing seeds for the season ahead.

One day after the new moon, on Sept. 15, Mercury retrograde will officially come to an end. Bust out your party hats! With the mental planet finally gaining some momentum, you’ll get a much-needed break from the brain fog and feel a lot more clarity about how you’d like to move forward with your future plans.

On Sept. 22, it’s time to bid hot girl summer and Virgo season adieu, as the sun is entering the realm of sweet and social air sign Libra — an ingress that simultaneously heralds in Libra season and fall. The kickoff to the Libra season also marks the date of the autumnal equinox. Pumpkin spice girlies, your time to shine has arrived! On the day of the equinox, there is an equal amount of daylight and night — the vibes of which align perfectly with Libra season’s balance-seeking energy.

The first full moon of fall is coming in hot, and it’s serving as September’s sizzling closing act. Rising in the fiery sign of Aries on Sept. 29, this lunar moment encourages us to boldly chase after what we want and let go of any people-pleasing tendencies. Because of its close proximity to the autumnal equinox, this lunation is also called the Harvest Moon — so let that be a reminder to proudly reap all you’ve sown over the past six months.

“There is a clarity about September… the sun seems brighter, the sky more blue, the white clouds take on marvelous shapes; the moon is a wonderful apparition, rising gold, cooling to silver; and the stars are so big” – Faith Baldwin

Feast Your Eyes on the Harvest Moon!

Adapted From: The Farmer's Almanac

September’s full Harvest Moon reaches its peak in the morning hours of September 29, 2023.

This year, look for September’s full Harvest Moon to appear just after sunset on Thursday, September 28. It then reaches peak illumination at 2:57 A.M. Las Vegas time on Friday the 29th, drifting below the horizon shortly thereafter.

Why is it called the Harvest Moon?

The full Moon that happens nearest to the fall equinox (September 22 or 23) always takes on the name “Harvest Moon.” Unlike other full Moons, this full Moon rises at nearly the same time—around sunset—for several evenings in a row, giving farmers several extra evenings of moonlight and allowing them to finish their harvests before the frosts of fall arrive.

While September’s full Moon is usually known as the Harvest Moon, if October’s full Moon happens to occur closer to the equinox than September’s, it takes on the name “Harvest Moon” instead. In this case, September’s full Moon is referred to as the Corn Moon.

Image from Farmers Almanac

This time of year—late summer into early fall—corresponds with the time of harvesting corn in much of the northern United States. For this reason, a number of Native American peoples traditionally used some variation of the name “Corn Moon” to refer to the Moon of either August or September. Examples include Corn Maker Moon (Western Abenaki) and Corn Harvest Moon (Dakota).

Other Moon names for this month highlight how September is the transitional period between summer and fall:


  • Autumn Moon (Cree)
  • Falling Leaves Moon (Ojibwe)
  • Leaves Turning Moon (Anishinaabe)
  • Moon of Brown Leaves (Lakota)
  • Yellow Leaf Moon (Assiniboine)

The behavior of animals is also a common theme:

  • Child Moon (Tlingit) referring to the time when young animals are weaned
  • Mating Moon and Rutting Moon (both Cree) describing the time of year when certain animals, like moose, elk, and deer, are looking to mate.

Moon Facts & Folklore:

  • Usually, the Moon rises about 50 minutes later each day, but around the time of the autumnal equinox, it rises only around 30 minutes later in the United States—even less in Canada.
  • Frost occurring in the dark of the moon kills fruit buds and blossoms, but frost in the light of the moon will not.
“The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools.” – Henry Beston

September Full Moon Magic

Article by: Patti Wigington @ LearnReligions.com

September brings us the Harvest Moon, sometimes referred to as the Wine Moon or the Singing Moon. This is the time of year when the last of the crops are being gathered from the fields and stored for the winter. There's a chill in the air, and the earth is slowly beginning its move towards dormancy as the sun pulls away from us. It's the season when we're celebrating Mabon, the Autumn Equinox.

This is a month of hearth and home. Spend some time preparing your environment for the upcoming chilly months. If you don't already have one, set up a hearth or kitchen altar for those times when you're cooking, baking and canning. Use this time to clear out clutter—both physical and emotional—before you have to spend the long winter days inside.


Colors: Use browns and greens, earth tones, to represent the changing colors of the fields and lands around you.

Gemstones: Citrine, chrysolite, peridot, bloodstone, and other reds, oranges, and yellows can symbolize the colorful leaves on the trees in your area.

Trees: Bay, larch, hawthorn, and oak are all associated with this time of year.

Goddesses: Demeter, Brighid, Freyja, and Vesta, as well as other deities of the harvest, are appropriate to honor in September. You can also work with gods connected to vegetation and vines.

Element: Earth is typically associated with this time of year.

For magical herbal correspondences this month, look at using rosemary, rue, basil, and chamomile in your workings. All of these should be flourishing in your garden right now, and you can harvest and dry them for future use.

Harvest Moon Magic:

Finally, remember that the harvest moon is a season about reaping what you have sown. Remember those seeds you planted in the spring—not just the physical seeds, but the spiritual and emotional ones? This is the season where they are bearing fruit; take advantage of all of your hard work, and collect the bounty you deserve. Here are a few ways to benefit from this month's full moon energy.

  • Jessica at MoonKissed has a great suggestion for increasing your personal harvest, and says, "Increasing harvest is a two part process: first we give gratitude for the harvest we’ve already received, the abundant friends, lovers, passions, and support from the Universe. Then Ask for our cup to be full or re-filled, in balance. Anything you’d like to increase, desire more of, would like illumination about, put into this spell."
  • Use the harvest season to plan ahead for the coming winter months - stockpile magical supplies and ingredients so that you'll have them on hand when it's too cold or snowy to get them fresh.
  • Consider the abundance you have in your own life, and start thinking about ways you can share it with others. Can you donate things to organizations that help the needy? What about setting up a food drive, or volunteering your time at a homeless shelter? Use this time of year to pay things forward, both materially and magically.


In the heart of authenticity lies the ownership of our wild selves, an unapologetic embrace of our unique essence. Just as nature follows her rhythms with an effortless grace, so too should we honor our own cadence. It’s in the untamed corners of our spirit that we discover sovereignty — the liberated state of being true to who we are.

Nature, the ultimate teacher, whispers wisdom through her ever-shifting seasons and dance of elements. As we attune ourselves to her rhythms, we synchronize with the symphony of life, experiencing the ebb and flow of growth, decay, and rebirth. In this synchrony, we find a reflection of our own journey, our capacity to shed old layers and emerge anew.

To be sovereign is to stand bold and fearless, much like the towering trees that stand unshaken by the storms. In the forest’s quiet wisdom, we learn that vulnerability is a strength, just as a delicate bloom unfurling its petals can withstand the elements. Authenticity, in its raw and unfiltered form, becomes a beacon, guiding us back to the core of our being.

So let us listen to the whispers of the winds, heed the call of the wild, and follow the path that resonates with the heartbeat of our own nature. In doing so, we honor our sovereignty, celebrate our authenticity, and join the symphony of nature’s rhythms that echo through our spirits.

Make An Autumn Fairy From Natural Materials

This fun and easy craft is from the Magic Onions website & blog:

Autumn must surely be the most generous season of all. When we go out for our walks, one thing we make sure to remember is our basket to carry the multitude of treasures we find along the way. Our basket quickly fills up with pine cones, acorns and beautifully colored leaves, along with the customary moss and sticks and pine needles. Indeed, venturing outside is a treasure hunt not to be missed.

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – Roald Dahl.

Our favorite crafts are ones that use the materials we have collected on nature walks or can be easily found around the home or at our local craft or hardware store.

Our Autumn Fairy craft requires :

  • Autumn leaves
  • A pine cone
  • A large acorn cap
  • Rusty orange wool roving (unraveled yarn fibers)
  • One white felt ball (1 inch round wooden ball will work just as well)
  • A little string
  • A hot glue gun
image from The Magic Onion

1. The Head - Prepare your fairies head by adding hair to the round felt ball. Break off a strip of the rusty orange roving about the length of your hand. Dab a little glue from the hot glue gun onto the ball and stick the rusty orange ‘hair’ onto the ball. Hold the hair in place until it has stuck fast. Add a dab of glue into the inside of the acorn cap and stick it onto your fairies rusty orange head.

2. The Body - The upside-down pine cone will be your Autumn Fairies body. Dab a bit of glue from your hot glue gun onto the base of your pine cone. Stick your fairies head onto the base of your pine cone.

3. The Wings - Choose two beautifully colorful Autumn leaves. Dab a little glue onto the stems of your leaves and stick them onto the back of your Pine Cone Autumn Fairy. Tie a little strand of string onto the stem of the acorn to hang your Autumn Fairy.

Hang your lovely Fall Fairy in the front window to catch the afternoon sunshine… she glows orange and gold and reminds us daily of Autumns generosity.

“Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day.” – Shira Tamir

The Kitchen Witch's Cauldron

Roasted Rainbow Carrots

w/ Honey & Lime

Foods that are grown underground have a special significance during the Autumnal Equinox. You are invited to move inward towards the depths of your being, to go undercover like the carrot.

The new moon is symbolic of darkness before creation, when all things are possible. The new moon preceding the Harvest Moon, (a powerful time for attaining our needs and desires), is the most powerful time to excavate concealed or secret gifts. Now is the time to reveal your hidden talents, to pull from deep within - like drawing a carrot from the soil and revealing the delicious root hidden just below the surface....

The Second Harvest

September 23, 2023

By Priestess Novaembre

Mabon is the seventh sabbat on the Wheel of the Year. It is the autumn equinox, a solar sabbat, when the hours of darkness and the hours of light are exactly equal, as if the scales are perfectly balanced, but the hours of darkness will now increase. Equinox literally means “equal night.” It is the middle of autumn. It is also known as Second Harvest. First Harvest, the bread harvest is Lammas, July 30/Aug 1. Second Harvest is the harvest of grapes and other fruit. Samhain is the third harvest, the last one before the hard freeze when all the crops must be in.

The word “Mabon” is said to come from Queen Mab of the faery people (Maeve of the Celts). The Sabbat was also called Alban Elved in Wales, Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Feast of Avalon, and Harvest Home. Because a harvest supper, a dinner of thanksgiving and celebration, was part of this sabbat, along with the themes of thankfulness, this sabbat is known as the “Witches Thanksgiving.” We pay our respects to the approaching dark time of the year and give thanks to the waning sunlight.

At this sabbat we are poised between light and darkness, life, and death. We mourn what is passing, celebrate that which is bountiful and are reminded that the Mother will hold the seed of Light in Her womb until the time of rebirth. This is a time for us to look at our own scales, the bounty of our own personal harvest weighted against our life’s experience. This is a time to take the gifts given from experience and make them a part of who and what we are. These experiences regenerate into wisdom. By doing so we honor these events, people and experiences that have so impacted our journey and our being and in honoring these we make them sacred.

At this time, the sun enters the constellation of Libra, the scales, and we celebrate all we have harvested, both physically and spiritually. In China this is Chung Ch’ui, the end of the rice harvest. In Judaism it is Succoth, the harvest holiday. This is one of the oldest harvest celebrations in Europe. Themes are abundance, balance, and thanksgiving.
