Horoscope – Sept. 25 to Oct. 1, 2007

Harvest Moon! The Full Moon this week will be the glorious Harvest Moon, where the moon appears to be very close and illuminates the night sky like it was daylight. This has to do with the turning of the earth into the time of autumn, and this Moon brings with it the official end of summer and the turning away from the intense activity. We are getting ready to move inward, physically and mentally. I hope you will be able to see this moon and take in its beauty.

In other news, I am making my way back to the U.S., and will be landing in the Heartland, the state of Illinois. Don't even ask. I hope to be over there for a visit in November, so I can hug everyone I've missed and make new friends! It will be good to be back in my own country again.

Happy skygazing!

Aries (March 21- April 19): This week's Full Moon is the beautiful Harvest Moon and falls in your sign, as it does every year.

Make good use of the time preparing your abode for winter.

Taurus (April 20 -- May 20): This week's Harvest Moon allows you to put some things to rest, and encourages you to bring closure to some things that have been pending.
