The Full Moon of September is known as the Corn Moon, unless it occurs closer to the fall equinox (September 21st), then it’s considered to be a Harvest Moon.
The name ‘Corn Moon’ comes from Native American Algonquin and Iroquois tribes who named each full moon as a way to track the seasons. This moon marks the best time to harvest corn. 🌽
What’s the Spiritual Meaning of the Corn Moon?
Also known as Barley Moon or Grain Moon, the Corn Moon symbolizes all types of grain. In Europe, ancient pagan worship of the grain goddess was central to all aspects of life. As divine perfection of earthly fecundity, she was considered the germinating energy of the seed.
The grain goddess also performed the miracle of transformation, making grains into bread. 🍞 She was given many names over time but the one that stands out is Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture whose name became the root of the word “cereal”. Other names are: Ashnan, Heqet, Demeter, Mama Sara, Corn Mother.
Ritual for the Grain Moon or Corn Moon
For this Corn Moon ritual we will make an abundance jar with the goddess’ blessing — symbolized by the Moon in her Mother aspect (Full Moon). 🌕
Before you begin, make sure you have set an intention for this ritual. It could be anything related to abundance, finding a new job, growing your business, or improving your finances.
Dispose of any remains in the compost or waste as you say Thanks. On the next full moon, you are going to open the jar and do the same with the grains. Wash the jar well and gift or spend the coins to ensure the flow of wealth.
