September Full Moon

The Corn Moon falls on September 2nd. The name seems obvious, though in Britain corn means any grain harvest. Arianrhod is the Welsh moon goddess.

Tonight is a Full Moon, the Storm Moon.  (storm in Kentucky is becoming a normal night, sigh) As Snoopy would say, it will be a dark and stormy night.

The Cherokees call it Windy Moon, Anuyi, ᎠᏄᏱ, so they agree. Figures dressed as Kanati, ᎧᎾᏘ, the Cherokee first man/hunter, help restart town-council sacred fires.

Tonight is the Long Nights Full Moon. Beware of draugar—they live in burial mounds & reanimate on nights like tonight. BUT they can be shapeshifters, so how can you be safe unless you are alone? They also inhabit dreams. Beware of going to sleep.

The Cherokee call this Snow Moon, Usgiyi, ᎤᏍᎩᏱ. The spirit being, “Snow Man”, brings cold & snow. Shoveling snow? I’d rather face draugar.

Gotta go—I hear something scratching on my window. And it’s snowing. The worst of both worlds!

Under the full moon, they make trades, but what are they trading? Weapons of war? My heart does ache. In the shadows, they become friends, but is it the friendship of peacemakers or warriors? I fear for the future.

Tonight, is the Cherokee Trading Moon, Nudadaequa, ᏄᏓᏓᎡᏆ, where people gathered from afar to trade. It is also the time of the Friendship Festival, Adohuna, ᎠᏙᎱᎾ, where friendship was made or renewed.

Take care, my friends.
