September's Super Moon in Aries Wants You To Break Out of That Toxic Cycle
Get rid of what’s no longer serving you.
The last super moon of the year is almost here as a full moon in Aries lights up the night sky on Friday, September 29.
The September super moon is called the harvest moon because it arrives just after the autumn equinox. This month’s moon is particularly special because it is the last super moon of 2023, giving us one last chance to supercharge our manifestations before the new year.
The full moon is in the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, bringing an energy of rebirth, transformation and action. Joining it is the sun is in Libra, a sign that thrives on community and balance. While Mars-ruled Aries can be a bit brash and blunt, Libra avoids conflict at all costs and is known to be the peace-keeper, sometimes to the point of people-pleasing. Mars is the planet of war and action, reminding us that if we’re going through hell, we need to keep going. Libras are driven by Venus, which is all about love, turning our attention to how we express and embody our desires and values.
With Mercury and Venus retrograde behind us, we should have a clearer picture on what we want to bring into our lives and what we won’t tolerate. With this cosmic contrast, the full moon will inspire you to break the toxic cycles that have been holding you back, especially when it comes to relationships as it will team up with the North Node of Destiny. Venus will also form a square with Uranus, which is famous for causing upheaval and chaos, but for the better, urging you to throw away what’s no longer serving you with a quickness. Your task on Friday is to bring these conflicting energies together to gently and effectively communicate what’s on your mind. In other words, it’s time to have the hard conversation, even if it is with yourself.
