What September’s full harvest moon means for your star sign

OUR next Full Moon is on September 21st, it’s a Harvest Moon, when the Sun in Virgo forms an opposition to the Moon in Pisces.

Full Moons are always a magical, mystical time of the month when our ~spide-y senses~ and intuition are firing on all cylinders, fuelled by the lunar energy surging around us.

But the presence of Pisces enhances this even further. Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the planet of magic and mystery.

Everything has a sheen of enchantment around it right now, and that includes you!

Zoom in on your imagination, day dreams, unconscious desires, hunches and gut instincts.

There’s a voice, deep down inside, that can guide you this Full Moon to what’s best for you. 

Let the tarot start that conversation!


This card has a very familiar feel for you, Aries, because it’s all about rivalry, and competing for a prize.

Nothing gets your blood pumping as fast as a good ole’ competition.

You enjoy pitting your wits and strength against others, you rise to the challenge, and you relish the edge it gives you.

So, enter a new game with confidence this Full Moon, and pitch yourself towards the biggest and best prize you can see.

You’ve got all the right stuff to win through.


Death is a really powerful card about transformation, the natural cycles of life when one thing ends so that a new thing can take its place, an inevitable renewal.

We mustn’t hold on to the ~old~ too long, because we’re just preventing the ~new~ from entering our life, in order to rejuvenate our energies and hopes. So, let go of the ~old~ this Full Moon.


Release things which are fading or false or more hard work than they’re worth to you now.

Bigger and better is on the way, I promise. 


Not every new beginning has to start overnight, with a wham bam, and pay back the very next day (though you wish it were always like that, because you have zero patience, Gem).

The Ace of Coins brings a slow-burn energy into your world, the start of something new unfolding and growing slowly and steadily.

Maybe a friendship, a new skill, an investment, a lifestyle shift.

Something positive, but it’s an evolution vs a revolution, so temper your patience levels, and focus on it this Full Moon. 


Celebrate the successes you’ve had this last year, Cancer.

Take a moment to reflect on the obstacles you’ve overcome, the resilience you’ve shown, the courage you’ve had to draw on to persist.

You deserve to relish this progress, and signal to the Universe that you’ve taken the life lessons of the hardships you’ve faced, and you’ve grown.

This is an important ritual for you, this Full Moon, as shown by the powerful Strength card.

You need a reminder of just how strong you’ve been- and are!


Don’t worry, don’t hesitate, don’t hold back.

The Nine of Wands is a reassuring pat on the back, and a whisper in the ear that you’ve got this, you can handle this.

All obstacles can be blasted out of your path this Full Moon, Leo, with a concerted effort.

Nothing is going to be as bad or hard as you dread.

Everything is achievable and doable, so run at your blocks and issues, and tackle them head on. Smooth sailing awaits on the other side. 


Romantic vibes around you this Full Moon, Virgo, as the Knight of Cups sails into view with a pleasing invitation, a winning smile, and a charming energy.

Let yourself get swept off your feet, whether it’s by a suitor, an idea, an activity, or a possibility.

Go on an adventure, let your hair down, ditch the schedule and live in the moment, reacting spontaneously to what’s on offer.

This is the way to live. Good times await. 


All change, Libra, are you ready for a transformation?

Hope so because The Wheel of Fortune brings exactly that momentum and energy into your world this Full Moon.

The trick is to get the change focused on an area of life where you feel stale or bored or thwarted.

Make a move, just one will do it, and watch as it creates a ripple effect across your wider lifestyle.

One small change can spark a mini revolution this very week, so take a deep breath and focus on the right area. 


You’re an independent person, and you march to your own beat, and you don’t seek or need others’ approval.

The Queen of Swords is an apt representation of your personality because she is dynamic, ambitious, and focused on her own agenda.

You are making strides this Full Moon and getting ahead on goals and plans that have sat stagnant for too long.

You are making up for lost time, and woe betide anyone getting in your way!

Go for it, Scorpio! 


Kindness flows easily and consistently through your veins.

You are a giver, rather than a taker, and you love to bring pleasure and joy to others. Good for you, Sag.

The Six of Coins brings your generosity to the forefront this Full Moon, and you spend your time doing random acts of kindness, paying compliments, offering favours, and generally making the lives of those around you a little brighter.

The secret is… this makes you even happier than them. Enjoy being a good person because you truly are.


Let your emotions out this Full Moon, and listen to them, follow them, get to the bottom of what triggers and drives them.

You don’t like feeling too deeply or being overwhelmed by that which you can’t control. So, get control.

The Queen of Cups shows you don’t have to be at the mercy of your feelings.

By tuning in to them, and analysing them, you can start to understand, and manage, them.

Stop suppressing these emotions. Let them emerge and get to know them.


Although you might not think so, Aquarius, you ARE ready to move on from this current situation.

A toxic environment is more likely to change YOU, than you are to change IT.

The Six of Swords is a cosmic signal to depart; a train whistle calling you to the platform to hop aboard a new ride and get the heck out of town. 

You won’t realize, until you’ve got some distance from this, just how tired and drained you have become by it.

Moving on is simply the best move you can make this Full Moon. 


Habits and routines are the stuff of life, and keep us on track, but sometimes they need reviewing and shaking up again, because circumstances change, and we need new stimulus.

This Full Moon is a good time to audit your routines, Pisces, and decide on some changes.

The Four of Coins warns of getting into a rut, and getting stuck in a trap of your own making.

Look at where your energy goes, and how you’re feeling. Prioritise your goals. Schedule time for doing literally nothing (you need that).

Make your time work better for you, and you’ll feel so much better.
