The colors of the harvest moon celebration match those of the changing earth around us -- browns and greens, and other earth tones. Gemstones such as bloodstone and peridot, and herbs like valerian and witch hazel all have correspondences to this month's moon. It's a time to honor both harvest deities -- like Demeter and Freyja -- and gods of hearth and home, such as Vesta and Brighid. Spend some time making your home ready for the coming winter months. Do some baking, canning, preserving. If you don't have a kitchen altar, set one up. Keep a pot of comfort food on the stove, for those chilly afternoons when you need something to warm the body and soul.
This month's moon is also known as the Wine Moon or the Singing Moon. Why not celebrate it with an Autumn Full Moon Group Rite? Enjoy the change of seasons while you can - soon the shorter days will be upon us!
