Full Moon in Aries | September 29, 2023

full moon September 2023

On September 29, 2023, we will experience a full moon at 6 degrees of Aries. It will impact individuals with planets and aspects between 1-11 degrees of this sign in their natal charts the most. But it will likewise influence individuals with planets in Leo, Sagittarius, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn at the same degrees. Full moon phases are a great time to conduct release rituals to let go of the old and make way for the new. They are also ideal for harnessing the moon’s power in other beneficial ways.

This full moon is super exciting for many reasons. First, any full moon in Aries comes with explosive energy since this is the first fire sign of the zodiac, and it’s ruled by Warrior Mars. So, you can always expect an intense impact when the moon fully illuminates in this sign. Likewise, this full moon precedes a solar eclipse in its opposing sign, Libra. So, get ready for even more profound fireworks.

In general, the full moon in Aries brings new initiatives or projects to a head. So think back to anything you may have stated around March 21st of this year. Chances are you began a new romantic, business, health, soul searching, or other endeavor around this time. Now, it’s time to start reaping the benefits of whatever you began during that period.

Major Payouts

This could mean many things depending on what the Universe blesses you with. It could be a major payout from a financial endeavor, weight loss from a health regimen, physical enhancements from a beauty treatment, etc. Likewise, you may get engaged or married from Sep 14-Nov 14, give or take a few days. Or, you could solidify a business or other important connection during this time. Either way, your faith will be restored as you begin to reap the fruits of your labor.


With so much positive, passionate energy in the air, you are likely to be quite confident when it comes to going after what you want during this period. Even so, you will be more driven and motivated to pursue your goals or take risks. You will likely begin taking whatever project you started to the next level. As you experience more growth or benefits from it, you will be ready to see it reach its full potential. And you will be bold enough to put the pedal to the metal to rev up the engine.

Mercury in Libra

On Oct 4, Mercury will communicate with Libra to help us balance everything out. In fact, there is a lot of energy in Libra in October, with the Sun and Venus clustering in this sign in the coming weeks. So, our conversations and actions will be about balancing things out on many levels. Making sound alliances will be paramount as we seek to capitalize on the previous and upcoming solar eclipses occurring this year. 

Communication should be pretty clear and amicable during this time. So, if you need to have a hard conversation, now is the time to do so. It’s also a great time to ask for a raise, promotion, date, or even someone’s hand in marriage. You may not get exactly what you want, but you may come close to it. In general, you will find that others are more compromising during this period. And this energy will stay with us for about the next six weeks or so.   

Additionally, it’s an ideal time to release any type of artistic work you have been working on. If you are a painter, artist, musician, writer, etc., any work you release during this time should be well-received by your target audience. The next month and a half or so will be a great time for release parties or social events connected to your creative endeavors. 

Last Quarter Moon in Cancer

The last quarter moon will be in the sign of Cancer prior to the upcoming solar eclipse. This is a great position to wind down the month and prepare for the upcoming blessings that will come our way. Last quarter moon periods are best for taking a breather. During this phase, the Universe tends to be calmer as we close out the activities of the lunar cycle. Cancer, in particular, brings forth peaceful, restful energy as this is a water sign closely connected to the moon.

So any matters that concern the home will be highlighted during this phase. Domestic affairs will be emphasized, especially as they relate to our sense of stability and security. You may be sending houseguests away as you wrap up a visit. Conversely, you could be in the process of closing on a new house or finishing a home-related project. Whatever you are closing up during this time seems to relate to your family in some form or another. And it will probably have you feeling sentimental and quite emotional.

As such, this is the perfect time to engage in reflective activities as you focus on your emotional well-being. Take some time to reflect on things connected to your home life that no longer serve you. Clean out your closets and donate items you have outgrown to a worthy cause. Also, spend some time nurturing yourself – spiritual baths, spa days, yoni cleanses, and the like are most enjoyable during such phases. Water should be very cleansing and healing for you.

Venus in Virgo

Venus transitions to the sign of Virgo on Oct 8, bringing more emphasis to our Divine Feminine nature. Both of these energies are practical and intellectual, yet nurturing at the same time. So Venus will show us more ways we can organize our material foundation. And this is right on time as more emphasis will be placed on our commitment sector over the next couple of months.

We will be looking at our relationships from a very practical perspective instead of through rose-colored lens. You or your partner may be more fixated on the flaws or faults in your connection. And this is important for anyone entertaining any type of long-term alliance during this period. You need to understand where you stand and what makes your relationship work. It’s time to dig in to ensure that you have a stable foundation. 

Mars in Scorpio

This full moon phase in September 2023 will close with Mars in Scorpio. These two opposing forces will take us for a spin. Mars likes to start things, while Scorpio prefers to end and transform things. Mars is fiery and passionate but can burn out fairly quickly. Whereas Scorpio is watery and intense, so it likes to take its time. In which case, Mars will light a fire under Scorpio to move us through any type of changes we need to make.

You may find that you are more driven to overcome any obstacles presented in your path during this transit. Your sense of emotional intensity will be highly pronounced as you give it your all. Though, you could also experience an increase in obsessive tendencies if you are prone to such behaviors. And this could lead to power struggles as Scorpio can be possessive and jealous. Whatever your focus is during this period, you will most likely get what you want as you are determined to make it work out.


This full moon in September 2023 brings with it powerful energy that can be harnessed for personal growth and transformation. It is associated with the fire element, which symbolizes passion and action. During this time, we may feel more emotionally charged and ready to take on new challenges. We can use the lunar energy to tap into our inner power and manifest our goals and dreams. Harnessing the power of this full moon can be a great way to empower yourself and work towards fulfilling your ambitions. With the right strategies, you can use this unique opportunity to make positive changes in your life.
