What Makes the Harvest Moon Sing?

How did the Harvest Moon become the Singing Moon?

On the Harvest Moon, Singing Werewolves everywhere prepare to howl for three nights in a row as they celebrate their moon.

If you aren’t a Singing Wolf, you may be wondering, why is this moon, referred to by half the humans on Earth as the Harvest Moon, known as the Singing Moon for some werewolves?

You’ll find the answer lies in the history of farmers and werewolves of yore.

As everyone knows, the Harvest Moon is the bright low-hanging moon rising over the farmers’ fields tonight, when farmers in the Northern Hemisphere would race to bring in the crops before winter. It’s also the equinox, when the nights have begun to stretch out and steal a farmers’ valuable daylight once again, making it harder to finish the harvest.

Over these ancient fields, the Harvest Moon rose like a big orange nightlight to help the farmers see their work. By Harvest Moonlight, the farmers could work all night, as long as they could stay awake.

This is where the singing part comes in. In the days before coffee and energy drinks, these overworked farmers had to do something to stay awake. And the werewolves who lived among the farmers used their unique vocal powers to help out in this unusual way, by using their deadly howl in song. The werewolves sang to the farmers, “talking” to them and keeping them awake.

Scaring them awake, some would say. Some thought the werewolves were singing down the moon. Others farmers understood that the werewolves were trying to help, not trying to cause the moon to crash into the earth and they began to sing along. Some farmers even started leaving out big bowls of grain for the werewolves to thank them and keep them near.

Even the humans who didn’t really understand, could see that there was a kind of harvest peace between the species that needs to be respected. That’s why among rural werewolves, it’s still a tradition to greet the new Singing Wolves and join the farmers on their Harvest Moon or as we call it, the Singing Moon.

So if you are a Singing Wolf, have a happy howling harvest moon and enjoy your bowls of grain! You can read more about the Singing Moon here.

  1. The harvest moon does not only mean that Singing Werewolves will be affected. The harvest moon greatly affects types 1-4 werewolves and slightly affects types 5 and 6. The types 1-4 are forced into vicious creatures, their furiosity decreasing as the type # increases. If you have no idea what I’m talking about (since it is not explained on this website) visit my website (under construction, but visitable) @ https://sites.google.com/a/caetlyn.com/silverheart-life-of-a-lycan/ . It also explains EXACTLY how werewolves transform. :grin:

    • Singing can be bad and good….the sirens sing for evil……but the mermaids sing to help…..the auras sing of happiness….I sing to heal and tell of prophecy……..singing is quite powerful….I do many of more with just my one voice…

  2. Hey Lupin, do you want to howl with the moon with me? Ohps zombie haha XD
    No offence I just had to ncncnc I love wolves, wolves are not werewolves.
    Werewolves are in fairytales. Look on the bright side, wolves can sing.

  3. I love singing. It makes me feel grounded and centered. I don’t believe I have a good voice, but my mother says it possesses a quality she can’t quite pinpoint. I love the wind and the breeze, in fact, I am considered to be a double air sign. You can message me if you don’t understand. Now I will wait for this September’s supermoon on the 8th. Any Singing/Harvest Wolves willing to lend a hand/paw, any help is greatly appreciated for preparation of my first transformation. Thank you.

  4. An administrator recently changed the clan options on the profile settings to avoid confusion between Singing/Harvest wolves and Hunter/Blood wolves. The September clan was previously listed as Hunter, which mislead many people. Are you a Singing/Harvest wolf or a Hunter/Blood wolf? Please pass this message on to the other werewolves you know in the months of September and October to get this change out in the public! :)
