New Moon September 14, 2023 – Exciting Change

New Moon September 2023 Astrology

The New Moon in Virgo on September 14, 2023, is well-aspected to Uranus. So the meaning of the New Moon September 2023 astrology is making positive changes, implementing new ideas and taking advantage of exciting opportunities.

The September 14 New Moon also aligns within 0°01′ with a star that makes people noble, generous, daring, self-controlled, single-minded and tenacious. It brings the possibility of good fortune, honor and wealth.

New Moon September 2023 Horoscope

The New Moon on September 14, 2023, is at 21°58′ Virgo. The most significant planetary aspect in the New Moon horoscope is the trine to Uranus because the aspect orb is so much tighter than the others at under one degree. This favorable aspect more than accounts for any deception of confusion from the opposition to Neptune.

The trine to Jupiter is wide but essential because it gives the Sun and Moon positive polarity, so this is a positive New Moon. The following quote applies to the Sun and the Moon:

Jupiter is the main factor in determining the polarity of the Sun. The Sun’s polarity may be evaluated by using this simplified table: SUN (+) Positive: Jupiter is trine, sextile, semi-sextile or conjunct the Sun. Disregard any other aspects to the Sun. [1]

New Moon September 2023 Astrology

Sun conjunct Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives a refreshing burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.

So, the New Moon in September 2023 is excellent for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs while searching for new and inventive ways to progress.

New Moon Aspects

New Moon trine Uranus brings energy, progressive change and excitement. It lowers your inhibition and increases your self-awareness so you can express your uniqueness more confidently. With fewer restrictions and a more independence, and an open-minded and adventurous outlook, you can leave your comfort zone, take risks and try new things.

Heightened intuition and imagination help you take advantage of unexpected changes and exciting opportunities. Change can occur quickly but without causing upset and chaos, and you can adapt well to new conditions. Chance encounters are possible; this is an excellent New Moon to make friends. They could be unusual or eccentric or from different cultural or ethnic backgrounds.

This aspect also favors experimental creativity, science, technology, computers, the internet, and occult subjects like astrology. It is ideal for breaking bad habits and leaving dull or unhealthy relationships.

Mercury Retrograde

Mercury stationed retrograde on August 23 at 21°51′ Virgo, the same degree as the September 14 New Moon. And just like the New Moon, Mercury was trine Uranus. So, this New Moon is ideal for implementing any bright ideas formed when Mercury was stationed retrograde.

More Retrograde Planets

Five retrogrades happen only 4% of the time. Six retrogrades occur only 0.7% of the time. Six planets are retrograde until Mercury stations direct one day after the September 14 New Moon. Then five planets remain in retrograde motion until Pluto stations direct on October 10.

The world appears to slow down when five or more planets are retrograde simultaneously. You may attract energy at some invisible level, and it can feel like you are living in another dimension. It can feel like you’re from another planet or reality, so there is less inner certainty. You may experience feelings of isolation or of being different.

More than four planets in retrograde motion also make it more difficult for people to understand each other. It seems like more bad things are happening in the world: more violence, psychological abuse, accidents, suicides, and death. Understanding and compassion seem to be lacking. With the world slowing down, material events can act as blockages that allow you to develop internally and mature. This helps you find reassurance within yourself.

The Constellations

The September 2023 New Moon is in the Sign of Virgo. But as the image below shows, it is in the Constellation of Leo. The Signs and the Constellations do not match up. Over the last 2000 years, the Constellations have moved nearly 30° out of alignment with the Signs because of the precession of the equinoxes.

The Zodiac was invented only as a measuring device. The ecliptic line in the image below matches the degrees in the horoscope above. Like the original astrologers, I use the Constellations and fixed stars for interpretation, not the Signs.

New Moon September 2023 Meaning

The Tail of the Lion

The September 14 New Moon at 21°58′ Virgo aligns almost precisely with Beta Leonis, Denebola at 21°57′ Virgo in the Tail of the Lion.

Fixed star Denebola gives swift judgment, despair, regrets, public disgrace, misfortune from the elements of nature, and happiness turned to anger. It makes its natives noble, daring, self-controlled, generous and busy with other people’s affairs. [2]

These natives are ‘single-minded and tenacious.’ [1]

In classical and medieval times, a man’s misfortune and disgrace were generally attributed to a woman. This perhaps explains the bad reputation of so many Venusian stars, such as Denebola. However, in this instance, the indications are for a noble and generous individual, and the misfortune is apt to stem from this nobility of character. [3]

Denebola in the Tail of the Lion has a Uranian nature, and it is supposed that in mundane horoscopes, major catastrophes are triggered by it. Depending on the position and aspects to other stellar bodies in a personal cosmogram, either preferment or fall is credited to this star. Fine aspects, however, will further work connected with matters of reform and progress. [4]

This star symbolizes strength from the Lion, along with both the ability and the need to use it wisely and constructively. There should also be the note of looking forward while at the same time being able to draw upon past experience, gained at the head end of the animal, so to say, since this Lion faces back down the Zodiac. [5]

With Sun: Honor and preferment with danger, public disgrace, and finally ruin, disease, fevers and acute ailments. [2]

Natives with this conjunction can develop their talents to gain high honors in their chosen careers. Wealth and good fortune are a possibility. Any anxieties will be due to the natives’ folly; unless well controlled, benefits seldom last. [1]

With Moon: A splendid and illustrious life; great, distinguished and opulent nature. [6]

Honor and preferment among the vulgar but final disgrace and ruin, violent disease of a vital organ, blindness and injuries to the eyes, accidents, losses through servants, domestic quarrels, temporary separation from marriage partner. [2]

High honors and preferment in association with public affairs. The native should avoid getting involved with questionable associates and avoid controversial issues. This could be politically, socially, or with members of the native’s family, which could create unpleasant situations that are not easily or readily resolved. Some natives with this conjunction could develop the tendency to gravitate towards undesirables or undesirable associates. Natives must learn to keep their counsel. Violence is possible. [1]

New Moon September 2023 Meaning

The September 2023 New Moon is a positive moon phase, and the trine to Uranus brings progressive change. It is perfect for making positive changes in your life and implanting new ideas.

Fixed star Denebola is generally considered a negative influence that brings disgrace and misfortune. But the positive nature of the New Moon in September 2023 astrology reduces its negative impact and brings the possible of good fortune, wealth and career advancement.

The influence of the September 14 New Moon lasts for four weeks up to the October 14 Solar Eclipse. The best time for starting new projects is during the two-week waxing moon phase, from September 14 to the September 29 Full Moon.

This is the final New Moon of the current eclipse phase, which began with the April 20 Solar Eclipse and the May 5 Lunar Eclipse. It is time to reflect on how those eclipses affected you and resolve any outstanding issues.

  1. Well this is something that kinduv resonates on some level. Conjunct natal PoF, whatever that means and opp natal mars rx. I was always kind of a trouble magnet, attracting criminally inclined people, that either threatened or did drag me down. I was naive, too trusting, and I suppose it read to those looking for targets or accomplices. All part of getting street smarts and learning to stand up. Where the heck the latent backbone comes from I am not sure. But my natal Saturn sq Pluto pops in my head at the moment.

    • Hi Vic. Sun opposite Mars transit can be read for a New Moon opposite Mars. Part of Fortune opposite any planet is still a good thing. Opposite Mars it suggests attaining strong self-confidence, self-assertion, and healthy competitiveness are the keys to happiness and success. The Part of Fortune is the happiness of your soul as well as good fortune and material success. Opportunities arise to find true happiness through taking positive actions.

      • Hi Jamie, just wondering why there is no Saturn sg Saturn, Mars opp Mars, or Pluto opp Pluto on your Transits page? Many of us are going through all 3 the next 2 1/2 years. Just gives us an idea what to possibly expect during these difficult transits. Thanks

      • Thanks Jamie. You explained it beautifully. So much so I wanted to fell good about it, but it’s just the way it is. And challenging of course. I never equated my having or needing to take right action, positive actions, with my happiness. I know both but did not connect the two.

    • yes saturn-pluto is a heavy weight and maybe karmic…the laws of the underworld…debts from pastlifes… difficult to deal with surely. So no wonder you attract the dark side…”getting street smart” reminds me somewhat of gangsta rap… the laws of the street and the jungle…am i right ? But that can bring a deeper understanding of life and yrself…not building your life on illusions but on the deepest essential ground of existance…a hard lesson for sure…

    “In an interview with Russia’s National Defense magazine last week, the director of that nation’s foreign intelligence service reminded us of his penchant for creative fiction.

    “Sergei Naryshkin leads the SVR, Russia’s successor to the Soviet Union’s KGB First Chief Directorate. This is a history in which Naryshkin, a Putin loyalist of aristocratic heritage, takes great pride. Evincing as much, Naryshkin returned to a familiar refrain: the so-called “Cambridge Five.” This was a group of United Kingdom agents the KGB operated between the 1930s-1950s. It was the gold standard success for Soviet human intelligence operations in the Cold War, doing much damage to Anglo-American operation”

    • “exiting new possibilities” – now one day before this new moon neo-stalinists putin and kim team up to form a new “axis of evil 2.0”. Also gets clearer that those two and iran, china and belarus build up an alliance against the so called west…aha aha aha…possibilities not only for the “good side”…maybe would have been better not expanding us-empire more and more to the east forcing their NWO “golden new age” eh ? So will the “good cowboys” succeed in liberating the world from the “bad guys” without destroying da apple ? Apocalyptic Saturn/Pluto 2020 capricorn was not a lightweight constellation and overshadows all cuz saturn is chief of this world and NOT uranus….

      • One global saturn/pluto 2020 — corona was just the start for that …. now ww3 follows…

        • “Careful with that axe eugene” – witness the power of the dark side…per aspera ad astra…

  3. Unfortunately , opposition to Neptune is going to ruin all the good things about this beautiful new moon. Neptune and Saturn are huge party poopers. Last week, I was kind of hopeful about a new beginning in my life but today I just found out it was just an illusion. Neptune is very treacherous indeed.

    • Hi ali ..”party poopers” haha you got humor and i like that…yes you can say this – but saturn cannot get away in another reality like neptune can. Probibition instead of alcohol and drugs. Die hard instead of fading away ..

  4. Hi Klaus, lol yes they are real party poopers. When you want to begin something new and exciting , you must pray that Saturn and Neptune aren’t around cause they always create problems. In fact, Neptune always jerks you around and plays with you and Saturn always says no. As long as your project is traditional and boring, Saturn is OK with it.

    • Good points. Previous comment at Mars sq Venus; each of the four recent artwork examples are tailed by bewildering (Neptune) deflections (Saturn).

      • Both Saturn and Neptune transit Pisces, Acceptance the key word.

        Saturn, test of acceptance. Neptune ‘unifying’ through acceptance.

        The Neptune Pisces generation 2012 – 2026, a time when humanity begins to tune in to its spiritual origins.

        Rupert Murdoch stepping down from FOX. Recall Murdoch a little uneasy with Neptune when we discuss its positive – negative dichotomy around Media, especially the Tucker Carlson thread. So Murdoch heads for the hills and his Son moves in. Does FOX step up and write the astrologyking chronicles? thats your laugh for the day.

        • Neptune in Pisces, Unifying through Accepting

          full quote, Watkins Astrology Handbook, 1990, Lyn Birkbeck, pg 335.

          “You belong to the Neptunian generation born between 2012 and 2026. You therefore came into being during a time when humanity began to tune into the truth of its spiritual origins – giving rise to forms of music and healing that previously were only dreamed of. Great Peace.”

  5. After a year in Kananaskis country we moved to The Peace. Famous for its history, balanced economy, ie. Agriculture, Oil-Gas-Bitumen, Forestry. Home of Chrystia Freeland when she worked as a Reporter.

    I know she is taking a lot of heat as the Finance Minister. Banking regulations for instance; who can and cannot have a bank account. Like an old time hockey game with a crowded penalty box. Try and Referee all the peculiar careers in this country, finish the game in time for the news, or get everyone home before the last bus. It’s not easy then or now.

    Mundane, Moon cusp of Magic, compare Venus Persona

    Moon transit Moon, 00Can19

    This is a challenging chart and comparison, especially interactions with women. So a rose today for you Ms Freeland. I remember The Peace.
