Why This September Full Moon Is Nothing Like You Thought It'd Be

Sometimes you just can’t make it out there in the world on your own. And this month’s full moon in Aries on September 24 at 7:51 PM PT will help you to realize just how much you don’t have to — and really can’t — go it alone. Everything you are hoping to accomplish, you’ll need the help and/or feedback from others at this full moon.

You’ll discover that other people can provide just the boost you need to propel you forward on some of your big goals and dreams. However, be careful — just as helpful as people can be, they can also serve as roadblocks and distractions if they are not included in your process. This may sound unusual for a full moon in the sign of Aries, known for its fierce, independent, go-it-alone attitude. However, a few things make this Aries moon different.

Why This Full Moon is Different

During this year’s Aries full moon, the sun will be in a conjunction with Mercury in Libra, making conversations with others key, especially about yourself, your needs and your desires. Real vulnerability and raw emotion will also be important. And with the full moon in a conjunction with Chiron in Aries — the first time Chiron has been in Aries in 41 years — you may not feel like your life is currently in the spot you want or need it to be in. If you are open and honest about those feelings, relationships can help you overcome what is bothering you and give you a better understand of what your needs are.

But it’s not just talking to others at this time that is encouraged, but making choices about them, too. Don’t be afraid to make decisions about who is in your life and how you work with them to meet a specific goal or direction. You may still have to re-work or re-negotiate some things about those decisions in the next few weeks but go ahead and make those hard choices. With this full moon making a t-square to Saturn, a solid focus on your purpose, and the things you ultimately want to create in life, may help you to overcome any of the tension you may be experiencing between yourself and others.

Shif the conversation from “what I want” and “what you want” to “what can we accomplish together that is better than the sum of our parts” is especially useful.


You may want to get your life in better functioning order but your relationships may be demanding your attention, and not in the ways you were originally thinking. Pay attention to what those around you are saying and don’t be afraid to make compromises to accommodate them and include them into your plans. At this time, your needs are intimately connected with the needs of others.


You may want to take some time out at this full moon for self-care or meditation. Your health, job, or daily routines, though, could be standing in the way. Learn how to work with the people around you to organize your life better so that inner peace can be yours.


Socializing is the name of the game! You want to be out and about with friends and feel free to reach some of your goals and dreams. You can do that, but first you may have to settle matters close to your heart. Make some changes to a passion project or romantic relationship so you can express yourself more authentically.

This month, you may want to make some big moves to put your life or career in a better place. However, home and family matters may be calling your name. Instead of seeing the two as separate and burdensome, try to figure out ways to work with or change your home, and include your family, in order to reach some of your career goals.


New, exciting chapters are on the horizon where you can branch out and explore new ideas and places. Before you do that, though, you may need to take care of some personal matters, or tie up things close to home. Make sure to communicate clearly with others about your plans and passions and get on the same page with your relationships before charging forward.


Change is in the air! An ending or beginning could occur at this full moon that may require you to spend a good bit of money, or share deep feelings with others. Before you can do that, though, you need to figure out what you realistically provide others both financially and personally. After all, you can’t give someone something that you don’t have.


Relationships are important, especially to you of all the signs. But sometimes a good reminder is helpful. It is hard to take care of others if you yourself aren’t first taking care of yourself. Before forming important partnerships with others, make sure your own wants and needs are being met and not neglected. It’s harder to create strong relationships when you allow yourself to be overlooked.


It’s time to take care of your business and your health. But old issues from the past, especially relationships, may need some attention. And that relationship may be the one you have with yourself! Use this time as an opportunity to get in touch with who you are inside and resolve those lingering issues from the past.


You may want to focus on things that you think will make you happy like a passion project or romantic relationship but you need to take care of the big picture before the rest will fall into place. First, figure out what groups of friends you want to associate with and where you see your life going. Then, love will more easily come to you.

Capricorn, what do you need to feel more grounded at home or with your family? That answer may conflict with some big career or life goals, making stability difficult. Use the resources you currently have at your disposal to create a living and working situation better. While it’s time to mix things up in your life, hopefully with the help available around you, you can shake life up from a place of security.


You may notice feeling chatty at this full moon Aquarius! And it is good to want to connect with others you are familiar with. But before you get lost in conversation, it may be helpful to flesh out your big ideas before you share them. It may also help your longterm goals to get your fix of excitement by traveling or going on an adventure before settling down to focus on your bigger project.


Confidence and more money may be the most important things for you at the moment Pisces. In order to get those things, though, you may have to change things up. Try consulting important people in your life in order to figure out what your next move is and try your best to negotiate and balance your wants and needs with those of others so that you can have a job or lifestyle you feel happier about. — By Brittany Binowski
