Harvest Moon Transformations

Full Moon Transformation: Sept. 29th 2023


“Greetings, everyone!  It’s that time of the month once again when the full moon graces us with its luminous presence.  In this post I’ll  share some of the powerful energies this full moon carries and explore how they may be influencing your life circumstances. I will also offer some supportive tips to help you navigate through it.


The September full moon is also known as the harvest moon, traditionally a time of reaping what has been sown. There are two configurations of note in this month’s chart that can indeed help you to do so! The first is called a Kite or Initiation aspect, formed by Mercury, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto and the second configuration is between the dwarf planet Eris, Mars and the Moon’s Nodes.

In the Kite/Initiation aspect, Mercury, known as the planet of communication and information, is strongly linked to the three distant (transcendental) planets; Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. These planets are the connection to your higher self and beyond. Mercury has great resources in this instance to help foster conscious change via increased self-awareness and by encouraging creative and spiritual expressions of all kinds.

This aspect is also a very supportive energy that has the potential to address karmic issues that may be surfacing for you. It is an exciting planetary collaboration that seeks to empower conscious change. So if you are seeking to expand your world through some creative or spiritual endeavor, know that it’s a great time to do so.

The second configuration steering the ship is made by the dwarf planet Eris opposing Mars. Both these planets are closely aligned with the Moon’s Nodes. Eris brings the potential for chaos and disruption which is designed to unsettle stagnant areas in your life. Her real intention is to move you towards change and positive growth. Unsettling to hear this perhaps, but she has the power to target false situations and to unearth hidden or neglected issues in your life. Her force is especially potent now. But no worries, she always has your back. That’s really why she’s here.

Adding to the Eris’s dynamic presence is, Mars is in opposition with her. In mythology Eris was the sister of Mars, the god of war. This pairing is bound to be a feisty one demanding some kind of resolution. Oppositions express their energy through relationships with other people or through a challenge implicit in your immediate environment. If handled correctly a lot of power and initiative can be harnessed. So look for your best options and apply them thoughtfully to your circumstances.

Much depends on how closely these configurations connect with planets and sensitive points in your personal birth chart. But if you are feeling like you need to take a new direction, this is indeed a favorable time to do so.

This full Moon is a spectacular time for harvesting the energies of this Kite or Initiation configuration, with the potential to bring about mindful transformation and deliberate change. The placement of Eris and Mars with the Moon’s Nodes can help you clear old energies, embrace change and to create a more harmonious life direction. All the best on your journey!

Many Blessings
