Tonight the full moon is in Aries. Known as the Harvest Moon, Barley Moon, Full Corn Moon, and the Fruit Moon, this September 2018 full moon in Aries comes just a couple days after the fall equinox.
As the first sign in the zodiac, Aries is all about initiative. It’s interested in moving forward, not looking back—which, energetically, makes it a much better fit for a new moon than a full moon. So when the full moon lands in this cardinal fire sign, we might just get a little hot and bothered!
That’s because full moons ask us to pause and reflect—not the sort of thing Aries typically enjoys. And 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. For Aries, that can mean anger, aggression, and reckless or “hotheaded” behavior.
Under this moon’s influence, we may react to situations in a knee-jerk, emotional way without having all the facts. It’s easy to say or do things in the heat of the moment that we don’t really mean—and throw our lives out of balance, just like that.
Fortunately, we have the sun in the opposite sign of Libra to keep us in check. This diplomatic sign teaches us to consider all sides of the situation and weigh all the options, before we act or speak. After all, we’re not the only ones affected by our behavior, so we owe it to those we care about to consider their feelings, too.
Just think of a time in the recent past when you rushed into something “head first” without thinking how others might be affected. How’s that working out for you now? This full moon can bring us face-to-face with the real consequences of our impulsive decisions.
But on the flip side, maybe there’s a situation where you’ve waited too long to take action. (Libra is notorious for its difficulty making hard-and-fast decisions.) The September 2018 full moon in Aries can bring it to a head and force you to make your move—now or never!
