Full Moon September 2023 ~ New Paths

Full Moon In Aries Decan 1

The full moon has no special dignity in Aries decan 1. However, the gutsy stars found here ensure that this full moon September 2023 will be incredibly productive all the same. This period is great for the lone entrepreneur who works tactically. Here the Moon does not lean on others emotionally and is not afraid of working solo. Those touched by this Aries full Moon are also not moulded by what is popular or what loved ones expect of them.


It is a time of inventions, some that are controversial, but others fantastically unique due to not being influenced by the mainstream. Austin Coppock says Moon in Aries decan 1 develops emotional self-reliance but has: “a difficult time creating and maintaining emotional relationships with others, especially those relations which place the natives in a position of vulnerability.” [1]

This may be the reason for success here since we can become married to our work at this full moon. We are so emotionally connected with our mission that we make passionate fighters for our cause whatever it may be. This is a time for activists and those who are willing to be heroes for their family or greater tribe. In the wider world, there will be those who act quite ruthlessly in order to preserve the integrity and independence of their homeland.

Full Moon Fixed Star

Alpha Reticulum is a small star found in the constellation of the star measurer. “Reticulum means a netlike formation or structure; a network. A reticle was a scientific instrument used to measure star positions, a grid of fine lines in the focus of an optical instrument, used for determining the scale or position of what is being looked at. The grid lines of meridians and parallels lines on a map is sometimes referred to as a net.” ~ Anne Wright. This brings scientific, astronomical and astrological skills to this full moon in Aries 1.

Full Moon Tarot Card


The tarot card associated with this decan is the two of wands. Karmically this card is about leaving the old for the new, deciding between staying with what you know and leaving for something brand new.

“ On the outside, it may appear you have it all and are very successful but changes have been occurring on the inside for some time. You may have a new plan of action or a burning desire to do something else. You may feel that your fires have been burning low and that you are in dire need of a new lease of life, change of scenery or change of faces.” ~ Teachmetarot. The meaning is appropriate in the sense that Aries decan 1 is indeed the start of a brand new cycle and the return of the sun…

Full Moon Aspects

Moon Quincunx Ceres

When the Moon is quincunx Ceres in the sky the matriarchs take control! This is the super nanny or the nanny state who takes care of us whether we want it or not. “It’s for your own good!” At best this aspect is superbly comforting when at our lowest ebb and can be a real Florence Nightingale. At worst however, the shadow side is someone who kills you with kindness. What happens when the crutch is unavailable? Sometimes ‘care’ comes with a price.

venus square Uranus

Venus square Uranus can trigger out-of-the-blue, long distance relationships. It’s a day when weird synchronicities could bring love your way unexpectedly. You can strike new friendships with eccentrics and unusual souls who you don’t usually mix with. You might find that you have to steer someone away from ill-advised, crazy behaviour. All this mayhem is quite inspiring however, shakes you out of a rut and can bring refreshing change.

Full Moon September 2023 Summary

This full moon will force us to say ‘No’ to the ever increasing state control of our lives. In order to do this we will have to learn to be as off-grid and independent as possible. Aries is very good at independence while this full moon’s tarot card inspires us to leave the old ways behind. Full moons are about relationships and a long distant romance could be the trigger that makes us take that brave step towards a new life.

Indeed the tarot card shows a man with a globe in his hands. Where in the world is this soulmate? With the internet it is easier than ever before to connect with like-minded folk. However the likelihood of them living within your local area is slim. It is becoming more common for relationships to start as long-distance because as we evolve spiritually we expect deeper, genuine, organic connections. These true soulmates are getting more difficult to find in an increasingly digitalised environment, full of NPCs!

Full Moon Healing Crystal

Mookiate crystal

Mookaite is a form of Jasper found in West Australia. It is an aboriginal mother earth stone. While being protective and grounding, it also provides a motivational energy boost. I chose this crystal because it makes accepting change easier. It will allow us to bravely take risks without worrying about the future.  

Mookaite Jasper is one of the best crystals for overcoming procrastination. It helps us identify the real reasons for avoiding specific tasks and motivates us to resolve them. The grounding energy of this stone keeps us focused and grounded while soothing the mind and calming distracting thoughts. This is an excellent tool for motivating yourself at work or focusing on a specific goal.

Since we are talking about long distance travel and taking new paths at this full moon; “The adventurous, robust vibes of the Mookaite crystal meaning make it the perfect highway companion on any journey. A stable and reliable wingman, the Mookaite crystal offers the medicine of personal power and willpower, the traits we need to bolster the courage and insight for making life’s big decisions.” ~ Energy Muse
