September 2023 Moons: Virgo New Moon & Harvest Full Moon in Aries

A new moon in productive Virgo and a full moon in high-energy Aries will occur in September 2023. What effects do these have on us?

What exactly is a New Moon?

A new moon occurs when the transiting (moving) Sun and Moon are in the same Zodiac sign (called a conjunction). New moons are associated with beginnings, are full of energy, and are enthusiastic.

What exactly is a Full Moon?

A full moon occurs when the transiting (moving) Sun and Moon are in exactly opposite positions in the Zodiac (this is known as an opposition). Full moons are associated with endings, climaxes, and emotional energy.

New Moon in Virgo: September 14th 2023 (9:40 p.m. ET) or September 15th 2023 (3:40 a.m. CET)

With Venus no longer retrograde (no longer appearing to move backward) and Mercury retrograde ending the day after this new moon on the 15th in the same sign, the Virgo new moon is a time for productivity and getting things done. We can emerge from the Mercury retrograde with more energy to get things done and are less likely to procrastinate. We had plenty of time to dither during Venus’s retrograde period; now is the time to act!

Because Mercury is still retrograde in Virgo at the time of the new moon, there may be some emphasis on second chances and do-overs. This would also be an excellent time for editing and revising. Anything we work on will most likely need to be completed quickly because the Mercury retrograde will be gone in 1-2 weeks.

We can work on projects that excite us, make rapid progress, and pay attention to the details in order to make them work in our favor. We can gain recognition for our efforts and enjoy staying busy. Where we may struggle is in relaxing.

Make time for breaks in your schedule to avoid overworking yourself. That’s something we should all remember with Virgo energy, especially with Mercury retrograde amplifying stress. Take breaks when you can and don’t fuss too much.

Ceres also enters Scorpio on the 15th, the day after the new moon, so being mindful of nourishment, support, and our resources can be beneficial at this time.

The new moon is trine (beneficial aspect, 4 signs away) transiting (moving) Uranus in Taurus, which allows us to experiment with new ways to increase productivity and work on taking small steps toward our dreams. We can also work independently and be more comfortable doing things in a different way.

The new moon occurs at 21 degrees 59 minutes Virgo.

The aspects to the new moon are:

Conjunction: 19 degrees 59 minutes – 23 degrees 59 minutes Virgo

Sextile: 19 degrees 59 minutes – 23 degrees 59 minutes Cancer or Scorpio

Square: 19 degrees 59 minutes – 23 degrees 59 minutes Gemini or Sagittarius

Trine: 19 degrees 59 minutes – 23 degrees 59 minutes Taurus or Capricorn

Opposition: 19 degrees 59 minutes – 23 degrees 59 minutes Pisces

Full Moon in Aries: September 29th 2023 (5:58 a.m. ET/11:58 a.m. CET)

Because Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac and full moons are times of endings, Aries full moons can mean the start of the end or the end of the beginning. We can get an idea of the results of our previous work, which can help us decide on our next steps, the next stage of the journey, and where we want to direct our energy.

With an Aries full moon, our emotions can fuel us, and how we feel can influence our ability to take action and what we take action with. We can use our emotions to inspire us, which can be beneficial for motivation with anything that has become stagnant. But, if we let them, our emotions can get in the way, stealing our energy and leaving us exhausted.

We can become more emotionally invested in what we want for ourselves and advocate for it. We can be a little more vocal in our opinions, and we don’t have to worry about offending others. We can be passionate while also fighting back.

Because Aries governs our identity, this full moon may be significant for who we are as individuals. You can feel more comfortable with yourself and see the good in yourself if you have a good connection to who you are, are confident, and put yourself out there. If you’re not confident in yourself, if you’re insecure and uncertain, this full moon can make you feel even more insecure and uncertain, and blocks in your path can become more visible for you to work through.

The full moon occurs at 6 degrees 0 minutes Aries.

Aspects to the full moon are:

Conjunction: 4 degrees 0 minutes – 8 degrees 0 minutes Aries

Sextile: 4 degrees 0 minutes – 8 degrees 0 minutes Gemini or Aquarius

Square: 4 degrees 0 minutes – 8 degrees 0 minutes Cancer or Capricorn

Trine: 4 degrees 0 minutes – 8 degrees 0 minutes Leo or Sagittarius

Opposition: 4 degrees 0 minutes – 8 degrees 0 degrees 25 minutes Libra
