Save the Date! :D

Those who know me, know I LOVE full moons. Especially the full harvest moon! Let's hope the weather is clear on the night of the full harvest moon this year. Technically, the Harvest Moon is the Full Moon closest to the September equinox around September 22. Most years it is in September, but around every three years, it is in October. The Harvest Moon is the only Full Moon name which is determined by the equinox rather than a month. Traditionally, people in the Northern Hemisphere spent the month of October preparing for the coming winter by hunting, slaughtering and preserving meats for use as food. This led to October’s Full Moon being called the Hunter’s Moon, Dying Grass Moon, and Blood Moon or Sanguine Moon. However, this should not be confused with a Total Lunar Eclipse – Blood Moon.

Full Harvest Moon


I love it when the harvest moon occurs when I am in Vermont. It is a special treat to be at my inn and see the harvest moon rise over the mountains, stirs the soul! I'll be in Waitsfield this year for this event and am hoping for a clear, autumn evening!

Neil Young's Harvest Moon is the best song to play as the moon rises in Vermont. I posted the lyrics last fall along with a video. Close your eyes and savor the words! So romantic!!! (The video is a bit corny...)

Harvest Moon

Neil Young

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin'
We could dream this night away.

But there's a full moon risin'
Let's go dancin' in the light
We know where the music's playin'
Let's go out and feel the night.

Because I'm still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I'm still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart.

But now it's gettin' late
And the moon is climbin' high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin' in your eye.

Because I'm still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I'm still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

Because I'm still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I'm still in love with you
On this harvest moon.
