Now that the fall equinox is fully underway, the crispness of the autumn air is not only here to replace the humidity and record-high summer temperatures, but it also signifies the beginning of Libra season. As the sun continues through this cardinal air sign, everyone’s setting their sights on socializing and prioritizing partnerships. Free of Mercury and Venus retrograde, you’ll be able to see potential cuffing season candidates much more clearly. This time of year is perfect for engaging in new romances, since everyone will be surrounding themselves with like-minded individuals who are only interested in keeping things balanced. That being said, the September 2023 Super Harvest Moon is asking every sign to put their canoodling on hold for a few days in order to prioritize solo endeavors. So, if you’ve been lost in the flirtatiousness of the season, prepare to fall back in love with your ambitions.

Taking place in the cardinal fire sign of Aries, September’s full moon is illuminating everyone’s desire to take action. Since Aries is a Mars-ruled sign, everyone will be encouraged to give their independent pursuits one final push before the slowness of the fall season fully sets in. While joining forces with others is one way to succeed, there are certain goals that you’re best able to accomplish on your own. Since you show up better in your relationships when you’re satisfied with how your own achievements are going, the Aries full moon is your chance to refocus on what lights your fire, separate from everyone else. Being a little selfish doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

What Is A Supermoon?

Supermoons take place when the moon reaches the point in her orbit that’s closest to Earth, causing the moon to appear closer, brighter, and bigger than usual. They’re pretty rare lunations, only taking place about three to four times a year. The Super Harvest Moon on Sept. 29, happening 5:57 a.m. ET, is the last one of 2023.

What’s A Harvest Moon?

September’s supermoon is considered to be a Harvest Moon, due to the fact that’s happening shortly after the fall equinox. Harvest Moons would usually occur around sunset (though not this year), casting the moon’s light onto Earth around the same time the sun begins to disappear for the day. This was said to offer harvesters a few extra evenings of moonlight before fall officially begins so that they could tend to their crops. It’s also commonly referred to as a Corn Moon, signifying a time when harvesting corn is at its peak in the northern United States.

Here’s what every zodiac sign can expect from September 2023’s Super Harvest Moon:
