Bold and bright, the Harvest Moon floods the evening sky with light on September 19. Each year, this special full Moon near the autumn equinox appears full for three nights. Farmers harvested their fields late into the evening under its radiant glow.

She also lights up our inner nights, bringing dreams and visions. The Harvest Moon is (usually) the full Moon in Pisces, the watery realm of psychic senses. When the Moon is in Pisces, you may find comfort in spiritual pursuits or other endeavors that bring a sense of wholeness.

Emotions and intuitions are heightened during the days before and after a full Moon, doubly so when the full Moon occurs in Pisces. If you find the psychic intensity during this time difficult to bear, try taking a saltwater bath, a swim in the ocean or a long walk in a natural setting. Massages, spa treatments or other aids to relaxation will also bring relief.

Equinoxes -- from the Latin word "equal night" -- are times of the year when nights and days are the same length. The autumnal equinox marks the beginning of the zodiac sign Libra, the Scales, a sign of balance.

Whether you are living a balanced life may be on your mind this week. If not, take steps to bring your activities in harmony with your life intentions. You may even consider celebrating the equinox by planning a rejuvenating retreat the weekend of September 21-22, or just a few hours to yourself, to recharge body and soul.
