The Full Corn Moon will be high in the sky on Sept 1, 2020. Although the moon does not hit its peak until 1:43 a.m.
Expecting to hear that the Full Harvest Moon was in September, do not feel alone. The Moon that falls closest to the autumnal equinox — September 22 or 23 — gets to take the name, Harvest Moon.
Due to September’s full moon happening earlier in the month it falls short to be the Harvest Moon. This makes October’s Full Moon the Harvest Moon.
The indigenous people of America are the ones who named the moons to coincide with natural events or to sign the different seasons. The Full Corn Moon got its name from the northeastern natives.
They named it this due to it falling during the time to harvest corn. Some people refer to this moon as the Barley Moon for the same reason. The naming of moons is thick with history.
Although this week’s weather forecast for most of the U.S. does not hold a lot of promise of seeing the Moon.
According to Accuweather, a good portion of the U.S. will be experiencing cloud cover or even rain, when the Full Corn Moon peaks.
This year the Full Corn Moon coincides with the zodiac sign Pisces. Pisces is a mutable water sign, meaning they are ever-changing.
The sign is normally associated with all things empathic, compassionate, imaginative, and spiritual. Having the Corn Moon fall under this sign may cause people to feel an abundance of emotions.
This can cause people to feel more overwhelmed with fear or worries. Do not fret for Pisces is also all about universal love. It constantly attempts to dissolve people’s boundaries that separate everyone from one another.
The Corn Moon also will be influenced by Pluto – the planet of transformation, Mars – the planet of war and conflict, and Saturn – the planet of inhibition and karma.
Together these planets will have both challenging and supportive aspects during the Full Corn Moon.
The energy from these factors will help push a person over daunting obstacles to reach success.
However, these energies can create some frustration so be prepared to feel as though you are being pushed one way or another.
All a person has to do is check out their astrological birth charts to fully understand how all of this may affect their lives. So if the sky is clear, why not head outside and grab some clarity by the pale moonlight.
