Full disclosure: I don’t know a lot about zodiacs, astrology, crystals, or general woo-woo juju stuff. The fascination is there, but my knowledge is lacking.
There are two fundamental things I do know, however: Friday the 13th is B-A-D and full moons are amazing and super powerful. They’re basically energy opposites: all the bad vibes come out to play on Friday the 13th while full moons are often a time for completing goals, creative outpourings and reaping what you sow.
But this Friday the two are combining just to mess with any stable energy balance we got going on.
Friday the 13th of September is not just any full moon, it’s a harvest moon.
‘Harvest moon’ is just the fancy name given to the full moon which marks the official beginning of autumn in the Western Hemisphere. They’re different from other full moons because they rise at roughly the same time for several nights in a row. The name also has a symbolic meaning, according to NASA, as farmers (before electricity was a thing) used the light of this moon to harvest their crops late at night to prepare for the winter ahead.
The harvest moon only coincides with Friday the 13th once every 20 years, so this Friday is kind of a big deal. The last time a full moon coincided with Friday the 13th was October 13, 2000 and the next time it will happen will be August 13, 2049.
Yes, people are losing their minds over the fact.
Basically, there’s gonna be a lot of wild energy floating around this Friday so get your crystals out and get ready to soak that stuff up. Or, if you’re not into that kind of thing, at least remember to step outside and look up: this is one full moon you won’t want to miss.
