Tonight's full moon, being the full moon closest to Mabon, is known as the Harvest Moon.
Traditionally, this is the time of the year when the last of the crops are being gathered, and farmers were able to take advantage of the bright light of the full moon to continue working in to the night. There is also a chill creeping into the air and it is time for our thoughts to turn towards hearth and home and preparations needed for the coming winter. Now is a good time to declutter the home and make it cozy and comfortable for cooler days spent indoors.
Our chances of seeing the beautiful harvest moon are fairly slim in Brisbane tonight with all the cloud from Cyclone Hamish still shrouding the sky. It is grey and drizzly here this morning and once again I find myself caught unprepared for the cold. I definitely need to take some time to plan what warm clothing and bedding my family needs for the winter.
How are you preparing for the coming winter?
