This month's new moon has both astronomic and energetic meaning as it reaches its lunar phase on Sept. 14
The Harvest full moon isn't the only astronomical activity to get excited for this September!
Fortunately for lunar lovers, another extraterrestrial event is taking place this month, thanks to the new moon that peaks at 6:39 p.m. local time on Sept. 14, 2023.
With every full moon, there's a corresponding new moon — the phase that marks the beginning of every lunar cycle. New moons often take place once a month since the moon typically takes around 29.5 days to orbit the Earth, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.
In contrast to full moon appearances — which can often be breathtaking sights to see, especially when supermoon phenomenons occur — new moons blend in with the dark night sky.
This is because the moon is in the phase that is not being illuminated by the Sun. However, despite its blacked-out appearance, new moons have just as much astronomical meaning in the cosmic world.
"They open a cosmic door that had been previously closed to you depending upon where they land for your Rising and Sun signs," astrologer Kyle Thomas tells PEOPLE exclusively of new moons, which he says "not only brings something fresh and new to your life," but "gives you the chance to use its energy consciously as you seek to build new patterns and plans that will echo out for six months to a year."
While astrologer Kyle Thomas tells PEOPLE that September's new moon (also a new moon in Virgo) will "bring something fresh and new to your life," he says it will also "give you the chance to use its energy consciously as you seek to build new patterns and plans that will echo out for six months to a year."
Signifying the sixth zodiac sign on the wheel, Thomas — known for his cosmic guidance for celebrities, business executives and prominent influencers — says "this elemental Earth sign will be quite prominent in our lives at this time," as it aligns with our "daily routines, responsibilities and employment."
