Listen up because the Super Harvest Moon in Aries will occur on September 29. This lunation is the last supermoon of the year and the first Full Moon of Spring. Almost two weeks later, eclipse season begins, which is why this Full Moon is going to set off a variety of emotions and events that we’ll be dealing with as the eclipses roll in.
The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon that occurs the closest to the Spring Equinox to usher in the gathering of the crops before summer commences. The Spring Equinox occurred on September 23 and this lunation is the Harvest Moon. It’s also a supermoon. This means that the moon is in perigee, bringing it in close proximity to Earth and making its effects and appearance more intense to us.
The Harvest Moon in Aries is usually a time for us to boss up and take charge of our lives. Aries is a powerful sign that likes to win at all costs and be the best at everything. It’s the first sign of the zodiac and the ram has a lot of stamina and is a force to be reckoned with. At this moment, we will want to focus on ourselves instead of others and plan ways in which we can improve our personal situations. However, it’ll be hard for us to gain motivation to do so. This Full Moon challenges our efforts to make moves and to take action.
When trying to understand the sentiment of the Aries Moon, we look to the planetary ruler of the fire sign which is Mars. The planet of action is currently transiting the zodiac sign Libra. Mars in Libra has been moving in conjunction with the South Node of Destiny, which is in juxtaposition to the Aries Moon, who’s travelling across the North Node of Destiny. Mars perfects its aspect to the South Node of Destiny in Libra on October 4, which is when we can expect to feel the effects of the supermoon. Our emotions will range — allowing our temperamental and intense thoughts to surface, leaving us exhausted as a result. The moon galvanising the North Node is bringing our hidden activities to light. These aspects are pulling us in two different directions. We’ll feel the need to take action, but be uninspired and unsure of the endgame that will hold us back due to our insecurities which are at a high.
The asteroids Pallas, Vesta, Pholus, Ixion, Quaoar, and Varuna connect with the Moon. Asteroids are celestial bodies that are smaller than planets. They add flavour to the energy at large, by giving the larger planets more innate detail and hyper specific flair. Pallas in Libra is yearning for justice, as well as the voices of the disenfranchised to be heard. Vesta in Cancer brings a protective layer. Pholus in Capricorn pushes us to persevere through tough situations. Ixion in Capricorn brings ambition and recklessness into the equation. Quaoar in Capricorn is making us work hard to express ourselves through creativity. Varuna in Leo wants us to find truth in matters. Putting it all together, these asteroids are wanting us to get out of our self-imposed ruts and from feeling stuck by implementing inventive solutions that can move us onward. The caveat is that we may not be motivated to do so, which is why we have to ignite the fire under our bellies by giving ourselves pep talks and not dwelling on situations. Instead of focusing on past mistakes or errors, we should use these setbacks as a way to improve our present and future. Learn from the lessons and build a better path forward.
It’s important to take on endeavours that boost our self-esteem. If we embrace and celebrate our amazing attributes, it’ll help us achieve our dreams. Although the Aries Moon wants us to rush through this process, it’s essential to take our time towards healing and growth. In a week’s time, we’ll be ready to take on anything that stands in our way, due to our desire to succeed and from the TLC we are giving to ourselves.
