Every year in September, we are greeted by a unique Full Moon. The Spring Equinox takes place this month – for those who don't know, an Equinox is a solar event in which the day and night are roughly equal – and this year it falls on September 23. As is tradition, the Full Moon that occurs nearest to the Spring Equinox is known as the Harvest Moon, a name given by Native Americans and North American farmers. In 2023, the Harvest Moon will happen on September 29 and arrives under impulsive and determined Fire sign, Aries. With all of this in mind, if you're wondering what lay in store for you during the Harvest Full Moon in Aries, then keep scrolling.
What can we expect from the Aries Full Moon?
Spring always summons imagery of renewal, shifting priorities, new ideas and projects. Pair that with the Harvest Moon, a time of abundance, and the intense energy that goes hand-in-hand with a Full Moon and you already have a lot going on. Things get even more chaotic when you throw Aries into the mix. As the first sign of the zodiac, in a way Aries symbolises a fresh start. If we dig a little deeper, we learn that this upcoming Harvest Full Moon offers much potential. On one hand, Aries is a go-getter, this sign loves to initiate action and approaches all tasks with fiery determination. Having access to these potent stores of energy can be great for those who are feeling stagnant or in need of more passion in their lives.
Yet, it pays to be cautious here, as Aries are prone to aggressive outbursts, impulsive behaviour and overall brashness. It's not their fault – they are, after all the warriors of the zodiac. But it does mean that if you have gripes or undealt with emotions bubbling beneath the surface, the upcoming Harvest Full Moon in Aries may trigger them in a volatile way. We suggest extra mindfulness during this time, or even some movement – it is the Aries way after all. Hit the gym, take up running, say yes to nights filled with dancing. Since the weather is warming up, maybe it's time to reacquaint yourself with the ocean and pour cold water on that fiery temperament?
Not to fear though. We will exit Virgo season in time for the Harvest Full Moon in Aries, where we will trade in Virgo's habit of optimisation for Libra's harmonising and diplomatic nature. Funnily enough, it's Libra's hatred of confrontation that could prove to be the kind of soothing balm to fiery Aries this Full Moon needed.
