A full moon in passionate powerhouse Aries (at 5:57 AM EDT on Friday, September 29) supplies you with drive to achieve a personal goal or to let your solo star shine.
6 ways to manifest your desires at the Aries full moon
1. Unleash your competitive nature
Aries loves to be No. 1, which could raise the stakes for all the competitive types out there. Take a daring leap into the spotlight or claim your place in the winner’s circle! Don’t even think about apologizing for being “too much.” One warning: The headstrong Ram can serve up a strong brew of swagger that might verge on narcissism. Know where to draw the line between confident and cutthroat, and when it’s best to just disengage.
2. Reinvent yourself
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries is never afraid to rip up the old model to draft a brand-new blueprint. Is there an area of your life that’s begging for an update? Whether you’re pivoting to a new career or bringing more equity to your workplace, the rule is less talk, more action. The only thing the Aries full moon requires is courage. It’s not easy to go first, to speak up when everyone else is frozen with indecisions. That’s what being a leader requires; it’s something the self-possessed Ram can teach us under this activating lunar light.

3. Pay attention to your anger
Since Aries is the zodiac’s warrior, this full moon may churn up aggression and anxiety. Used constructively, anger can be a helpful touchstone, connecting you to a powerful sense of purpose. Sometimes, it’s the activator of long-overdue change.
Under this cosmic “lunacy,” buttons are easily pushed, escalating a minor grievance into a bloody battle. Burn off stress instead of burning bridges. Boxing workouts are great to release aggression under this full moon—or just whale on a mattress with your fists. This could move all the pent-up frustration out of your body, freeing up life-force energy that’s been stuck for awhile.
4. Ask and you shall receive
If you don’t ask, you don’t get! The full moon is fired up in the zodiac’s most entitled sign, and it wants to speak to the manager—no, forget that; it wants to talk to the CEO! What bold request could you make? Instead of patiently waiting for a promotion, schedule a performance review. DM a venue about booking your band or host a workshop that would appeal to their audience. Simplify your pitch and get straight to the point. Brevity is the soul of wit when impatient Aries is at the wheel!
5. See red
Every zodiac sign is associated with a color and the Ram claims crimson as its hue. Like the qualities of Aries, red symbolizes survival, courage, and vitality. In the chakra system, red is associated with the first (root) chakra, which is stable and grounding—much like Aries can be when they rise into their leadership.
If you’ve been hesitant about taking charge or want to reclaim your power, use “cosmic color theory” to fire up your world. Wear something red or place objects in this hue in your line of vision. Check out our Style Horoscopes and Home Decor Horoscopes for inspo for your zodiac sign.
6. Burn it
Looking to be done with something no longer serving you? The Aries full moon, the first fire sign of the zodiac—wants you to set it ablaze. Cultures around the globe have used fire ceremonies to purge negative energy for thousands of years. This can be as simple as writing down what you’d like to be rid of, then striking a match under the paper. Or maybe you build a bonfire and toss in burnable items that you want to say goodbye to…yes, even if the farewell is bittersweet.
Fire destroys, but as it does, it cleanses. Visualize your pain being consumed and released as smoke, then disappearing into the ether. You might even hold a full moon fire circle with an intentional group.

Love and the Aries full moon
Want someone’s attention? Make it obvious during the Aries full moon! Heck, use a little shock value if you must. Capitalize on the courage that arrives courtesy of this lunar lift. What will get your pulse racing? Novelty releases a sexy rush of dopamine, which can wake up a stale vibe.
If your relationship’s turned into a snoozefest, ignite magic by doing something unexpected. Surprise your boo with concert tickets, post your creative work on social media (and @ your crush). Tandem skydiving isn’t for everyone…but if it’s your jam, now’s your moment to jump!
A partner is optional during the independent Aries full moon, which resonates at the frequency of self-love. That, of course, is the base ingredient for any relationship, so no matter your status, shower yourself with adoration.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
Whether you grab a megaphone or drop the mic, September 29 brings a fabulous opportunity to broadcast your message! The skies feature the year’s only full moon in your sign, which is like having the spotlight trained on you for the next two weeks (prime manifesting time). If you’ve been consumed with a mission for the past half year, it might finally be ready to be put out into the world. Get over the illusion of needing it to be “perfect.” What you need is to have it DONE so you can move on to your next brilliant project!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
What have you been holding onto—or clutching with a death grip—that you know isn’t helping you in any way? Chances are there’s more than one thing that fits the bill, Bull, and whether you feel “ready” to let it go or not is almost beside the point. As the year’s only full moon in Aries electrifies your twelfth house of release, transitions and healing, you may just decide to tear off the Band-Aid. Once you’re on the other side, you’ll wish you had done that sooner!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You have a million names in your contact list, Gemini, but are you clear on the difference between acquaintances, associates and true friends? The activating full moon in Aries in your eleventh house of community—the only one of the year—can help you clear out the dead weight so you can focus on the people who truly matter. You lose a lot of energy keeping such a big list even in the back of your mind. In the coming weeks, focus exclusively on your soul squad and see what synergies get sparked.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Your professional life could hit a high point September 29 or over the coming two weeks thanks to the arrival of the year’s only Aries full moon in your tenth house of career ambition and success. A project you’ve been immersed in for the past many months may come to fruition—OR reach the point of diminishing returns. The trick is to recognize when the moment comes and get out at the perfect right time. Think about what your next big goal is, set your GPS, then get right back to work!
Leo (July 23-August 22)
What important truth have you been holding in for so long you’re afraid it’ll rush out too strongly? The thing is, Leo, it’s probably got to come out at SOME point, so you might as well stack the deck in your favor with timing. September 29 marks the only full moon in fellow spontaneous fire sign Aries and your truth-telling ninth house. If you’re more concerned with how someone else will feel hearing this than how you feel NOT saying anything, this full moon can help you flip that script, asap!
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Have you been in limbo about a relationship, Virgo, feeling it’s too valuable to lose but not amazing enough to commit to? One way or another, the full moon in decisive Aries and your eighth house of intimacy and soul-merging can help you make up your mind. Talk it through (exhaustively!) with a friend or healer, but plan to make the call within the next two weeks, for both your sakes. Already attached? What are you craving that you’re not getting? Ask and you shall—or at least MIGHT—receive!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
You love them, you love them…maybe? Why is this such an impossible decision to make, Libra? Either you want to commit and get to know someone even better or you don’t. All this uncertainty isn’t helping you to make up your mind! But under the decisive beams of the year’s only Aries full moon in your house partnership, you may get clarity. Give yourself two weeks (peak manifesting time) but then plan to take action, which happens to be an Aries’ specialty!
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
If you’re running out of excuses for not getting your wellness game on, the Aries full moon in your salubrious sixth house should bring welcome inspiration! But please don’t beat yourself up for things you did or didn’t do earlier in the year. With so much on your plate, not to mention stress, it’s amazing that you accomplished any of your health or fitness goals. Still, this is a powerful moment to set some concrete goals and slowly and steadily work toward them over the coming six months.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
We understand why you’re so comfy in those yoga pants and sneakers, Archer. But with the provocative Aries full moon electrifying your fifth house of fame and turning all heads your way, you could put out an SOS to the glam squad. Whether you are leading meetings IRL or just another face in the Zoom gallery, people ARE observing you. If you’re hoping for a promotion or new gig, you can’t downplay the power of a strong first impression. You’ve got what it takes; now just dress to impress!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
“Too much work” isn’t a phrase in your lexicon, Cap, but if you’ve been burning the candle at both ends trying to get a big project out the door, you may learn its meaning firsthand. The Aries full moon in your domestic quarters could serve as a wake-up call, letting you know that someone (or ones) isn’t happy with the work-home life “balance” you’ve been keeping. Before things get out of control, limit your work hours and give a lot more TLC to your family and closest friends.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
What can you do over the next two weeks to stimulate your social life, especially close to home? The year’s only Aries full moon electrifies your third house of communication and interpersonal connections, turning you into the Pied Piper again. Hanging with your nearest, dearest and just some very fun people always brings you back to life. Scour local listings and circulate a list of events to your crew. Before you know it, your fall calendar could be teeming with concerts, hikes and happy hours.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You can get your finances back on track—or at least heading in the right direction—by committing to some essential steps over the next two weeks. The Aries full moon helps you bring one chapter to completion even as you look ahead to new ways of being a savvier money manager. But you’ll have to be tough on yourself, especially the part that loves fashion and gorgeous home decor. Come up with a budget you can stick with, but build in a couple of indulgences so you don’t rebel!
