Harvest Moon: A Time for Holistic Healing

Take some time to identify what you want to release, and then find a way to let it go. You can do this by writing it down and then burning it, or by using a visualization technique.

  • Set intentions for the future. The harvest moon is a powerful time to set intentions for the future. What do you want to achieve in the coming months?
