Full Moon in Aries - September 2023

Your guide to the moon cycle ahead.

New Moon in Virgo

The New Moon in Virgo asked you to get organised and start creating better daily habits, it was a time of self reflection and checking in with our outer and inner reality.

This Aries Full Moon is going to add some fiery energy to those habits while asking you if they really serve you and those around you. A Full Moon is a balance point between two signs, Aries being the sign concerned with the self and Libra which is concerned with others.

It's a time to really notice where you've gone too far one way or the other, have you been a little too selfish? Or have you neglected yourself in favour of looking after other people?

Aries is Warrior energy, it's I AM energy. The Full Moon is shining light into this area of your life and asking you to lean into your courage while you finish that sentence, I AM....

It's asking you to really pay attention to what is holding you in place, Aries needs to move and it's looking for you to step out of your comfort zone. It wants to you to have the courage to be you.

Mars is the ruler of this Full Moon, so this is not a time to relax and let life pass you by. It's time to show up, start something new, move the body and take any opportunities that are coming your way.

This Moon is also pointing us towards making effort in our relationships, or to really pay attention to our creature comforts. What do you need? How can you create spaces and relationships that are nurturing rather than draining?

Uranus is involved in this Full Moon too, which can bring us unexpected surprises. It can also offer us a new way of thinking, a new way of doing something.

Yoga Pose Focus for this Full Moon

Aries rules the head so we want our physical practice to get us shifting our perspective and turning the world upside down.

One of my favourite poses for an Aries Full Moon is a Downward Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana) which helps us to lengthen the backs of the legs, stretch out the back and increase blood flow to to head.

Rituals for the Full Moon

For each Full Moon I build an altar to practice gratitude, a space where I can really feel into all the abundance of this moon cycle.

I also really love to use scent in all my rituals and this month I'll be using the fiery and woody Aries Wax Melts on my altar as I relax into my space.

Aries is all about the self, so it's a nice idea to honour that energy by doing something that is just for you during this moon.

Lastly, Aries is a Fire sign so starting something new, moving the body or lighting candles are great ways to connect with fire.

Crystal for the Full Moon in Aries

I've chosen Bloodstone for this Full Moon for it's supportiveness in courage and clear thinking.

It's often known as a protective stone, so it's perfect to use as we shift into this fire energy and look to start shifting the things that are holding us back.

Journal Prompts for the Aries Full Moon

Your journaling prompts for this Full Moon are all around balancing your needs with the needs of those around you.

1. Have I been remembering to have fun recently?

2. Have I been selfish with my time and energy this month?

3. Who's needs have I been putting ahead or behind of my own?

Oracle Card Message for this Full Moon

New Moon in Taurus

New Moon in Virgo Oracle Card

Card Description - This card will often come up when you're enquiring about a financial matter or when you're doubting your self-worth. The card suggests you can have what you want - including material things - but you must believe in yourself. This comes down to the laws of attraction: value yourself and others will value you too. You can create abundance! Taurus is associated with luxurious Venus and this card holds the New Moon energy, so now is a good time to make a 12-month financial plan. This card can also signal the start of a new relationship, or of sexier times. If you've been wrestling with something for a long time, the New Moon in sturdy Taurus is a sign not to give up just yet!

I hope that you have a wonderful and magical Aries Full Moon!

Until the New Moon
