The Harvest Moon in Aries is coming Sept. 24 so you can finally reap the rewards of all of that manifesting you did during the summer of cosmic chaos.
What the Harvest Moon means for you based on your zodiac sign largely depends on your ability to chill. That’s right, the full Harvest Moon is giving you permission to relax, and why would you want to fight against relaxing? It’s such a rare gift these days. “This September 2018 full moon in Aries might have you thinking it’s all about growth and abundance. In actuality … not so much,” Astrologer Rachel Celeste Hansen wrote for Astrology.com. “That’s because full moons ask us to pause and reflect — not the sort of thing Aries typically enjoys.”
As the first sign in the zodiac, Aries manifests as energy that wants to move forward all the freakin’ time. But, if you fall under the spell of go-go-go Aries, it’s going to be a rough harvest moon for you. “Just as the sun’s light makes the moon visible at this time, our own dark side also tends to show up in more obvious ways,” Astrology.com noted. “For Aries, that can mean anger, aggression, and reckless or hotheaded behavior.”
If you want to keep it chill during the Harvest Moon moon, here’s how to keep your cool based on your sign.
Aries, while your jump-first-ask-questions-later approach to life usually serves you well, this is a big no no during the September full moon. For Astrology.com, Hansen warned that failing to stop and consider the consequences of your impulsive actions could lead to turmoil in your relationships or other endeavors.
So, take a beat and think things through before plowing forward. Everyone is entitled to a day of rest. Take it.
Taurus, while you tend to be stubborn and make your decisions based on facts and research, the September full moon can bring important messages if you tune in to your intuition, Cafe Astrology revealed. What’s more, “pleasure, joy, and creativity are the larger themes of the month.
With planets pushing for both work and play, you may very well reach an ideal balance.” However, in order to strike this balance, you’re going to have to embrace your spiritual side and allow it to guide you a little more than you’re comfortable with.
Gemini, the energy of the Aries Harvest Moon is a perfect complement to your changeable twinning nature. Astrology.com recommended this as an ideal time for you to try all of the things. Got something on your bucket list? Now is the time to check it off.
Just don’t forget that while it might feel like you’re ruling the world like a boss, you’re actually not the center of the universe. “Don’t be afraid to explore your options at this super-social full moon. Just be mindful of honoring plans — no matter how interesting the excuse, no one likes to get stood up.”
Cancer, if you’ve spent the summer mired in some interpersonal skirmishes, the September 2018 full moon is an ideal time to wipe the slate clean and repair those relationships.
When it’s healthy to do so, practice forgiveness — this includes with yourself. “This can be an excellent time to begin anew,” Cafe Astrology noted. “Settling in and focusing grows increasingly more attractive in the last week of the month.”
Leo, the livin’ will be easy for you during the September full moon, so take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way. The last week of September will be a flurry of friends, fun, and travel, which suits your star-of-the-show personality just fine.
What’s more, the Astro Twins noted on Astro Style that the harvest moon will bring an ah-ha moment that allows you to understand where other people are coming from. This could go a long way in mending any recent misunderstandings so you can stop feeling like you’re starring in a months-episode of Three’s Company, also known as the classic sitcom of misunderstandings.
Virgo, if you’ve been playing it safe where matters of the heart are concerned, the September full moon is an ideal time to step out of your comfort zone and open yourself up to the possibility of a new romance. “Yes, opening up to another person always involves some element of risk,” Astrology.com wrote. “But as this full moon suggests, closing yourself off can be an even riskier move.”
Translation: If you’re single during the Harvest Moon, go on a date. It doesn’t mean you have to get married. If you’re in a relationship, strive to connect more deeply with your partner by being vulnerable.
