A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is on the horizon for Friday, Sept. 16, 2016. Astrologists believe this might explain why some have been feeling nervous, tired, or even wired. Many people feel the energetic buzz of the full Moon. The effects can start as early as 10 days prior and linger for 10 days after. Friday, at 3:05 PM EDT, the Sun in Virgo will form an opposition with the Moon in Pisces, resulting in a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse.
According to the “Farmer’s Almanac,” the names of full Moons date back to Native Americans. The tribes would keep track of the seasons by giving each recurrence a distinctive name; the names would apply to the entire month. However, the lunar month is only 29 days long on the average causing the full Moon dates to shift from year to year.
The upcoming full Moon is called the Full Harvest or Full Corn Moon. September marked the time when corn was supposed to be harvested and occurs closest to the autumn equinox. This dictates the time that chief Indian staples such as pumpkins, corn, beans, wild rice, and squash are ready for gathering.
For decades, many scientific reports surrounding the effects of the Moon on human behavior have surfaced. The reports examined increased visits to psychiatric and general emergency departments, heightened mind activity and complaints of advanced levels of mental and physical distress.
The full Moon gives those who are in tuned the chance to experience a fresh start. Each one has a different intuitive feel and often brings about an enthusiastic vibe, making it a great time to have a party. It is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which began at the New Moon and is an emotional time of romance, fertilization, and relationships. This opens the door for meaningful people to enter or exit one’s life and can be an intense time. Hence, the reason why more police are on duty on full Moons.
In preparation for a full Moon, many rituals are in full swing, such as the gathering of photos, certain objects, and meaningful amulets, which are placed in a prominent place in agreement with one’s intentions. The determinations set with the Moon get very specific and match the traits of the sign that month.
The frequencies stemming from the Moon affect the rate of recurrence of the mind of human beings. These are feelings, emotions, and desires. The mind consists of the conscious and sub-conscious mind. Within the sub-conscious mind are a number of embedded impressions that decide the basic nature and personality of humanity. Many, however, are not aware of the thoughts or impressions hid within the subconscious mind. These impressions are the catalysts for all thoughts and subsequent actions. As such, both the impressions and thoughts have their own subtle-frequencies.
Reportedly, the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse brings to light the combination of these frequencies sanctioning the opportunity of fulfillment. During this time, different areas of life activate and result in dramatic turns intuitively. However, the awakenings are not new, they were merely dormant issues brewing inside, which have been building toward change.
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will take place Friday, Sept. 16, 2016. This always means the Sun and Moon are in opposite Zodiac signs. However, something awakens during this time which alerts those in tune to get in touch with their feelings, and in turn, get a better idea of what needs to change, or what needs to go. Epiphanies or events are likely to be sudden and enlightening. Pay close attention to inward prompts as well as aggressiveness and impatience in others.
