Grab your tissues and a notebook. Things are about to get intense AF. The Full Corn Moon, or Harvest Moon, will rise on September 24th, and it’s gonna be a doozie. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, this full moon, which occurs closest to the Fall Equinox, marked when corn was supposed to be harvested. Swap out corn for emotions in that sentence and you’ll get an idea of what we’re in for on Monday night.
Full moons already tend to bring out intense emotions, but there’s a specific heaviness surrounding this moon; don’t be surprised if old wounds are triggered around this time. This full moon is in Aries, and while Aries energy is usually forceful and action-oriented, that’s pretty much the exact opposite of what we should be doing right now.
The knee-jerk Ram reaction would be to do something about the feelings coming up. However, the full moon asks us to get still first and go deep in order to find mindful solutions to what ails us (and thankfully we’re in Libra season, which means we’re all about keeping things in check right now). Don’t be afraid if answers come up that seem to go against the status quo—that’s the brave Aries influence talking, and we’d be wise to listen. Pave your own path moving forward in the name of self-love.

Don’t hide underneath the covers, Taurus, hoping something—or someone—will just go away. Choosing not to deal with a pressing topic is pretty much the worst thing you can do for yourself and everyone involved. Time to rip off the Band-Aid.
There are so many things you want to do, Gemini, but there’s not nearly enough time in a lifetime, let alone a year, to do them. Look at the big picture and choose the thing you truly want, and then go after it with gusto.
You’re being asked to leave your comfort zone, Cancer, and you’re not happy about it. You feel like your world is changing without your permission. Choose to see things as happening for you rather than against you. It will change your perspective on what freedom means.

You’re in it, Scorpio. You’re feeling all the feelings, and you might be at a loss for what to do next. Take things one step at a time. You have an incredible reserve of ambition and discipline at your fingertips. Tap into that, and proceed mindfully.
Slowing your roll isn’t usually your thing, Sag, but it’s the best thing you can do for yourself at this time. Rushing into something without considering all the risks could backfire and push you 10 steps back. Make a plan and stick to it. Trust.
You can be very sensitive, Capricorn, and that’s totally okay. Honor your feelings, including, and most especially, the yucky ones. You gotta feel it to heal it. Healing is non-linear, which means you might be dealing with old wounds. Breathe, and let it out.
