What it Means When Your Birthday Falls on the New Moon or Full Moon

birthday on full moon meaning

The Moon is feminine, magical, mystical and one of the most powerful planets when it comes to astrology. In fact, many people resonate more with their Moon Sign than they do their Sun sign.

In astrology, the Moon represents how you process your emotions and your feelings of security in the world. The Moon also represents your creative and intuitive nature.

When a Full Moon or a New Moon falls on your birthday, the effects can be extremely powerful and even auspicious.

Your birthday is basically the celebration of your Solar return, which is the moment that your Sun returns to the exact same point it was at when you were born.

Here is what it means with the Full Moon or New Moon lands on the same day as your Solar Return –

Full Moon

When the Full Moon lands on your birthday, it means that the year ahead is going to be filled with rewards. All of your hard work is now going to be paying off for you and you are going to be able to collect the amazing bounty from all you have grown.

Energetically you are going to be in full bloom and shining bright for the whole world to see. You may also find opportunities and doors opening up for you and you may feel like you have finally been able to reach your destination.

Having a birthday on a Full Moon also indicates a time of endings. You are in full bloom, but eventually that bloom is going to have to wilt away in order to be birthed into something new.

Last Quarter Moon

The Last Quarter Moon is also significant and generally falls about one week after the Full Moon. If your birthday falls on a Last Quarter Moon, you are also likely to feel the effects of the Full Moon for the year ahead.

There will be a stronger emphasis however, on tying up lose ends and preparing for something new. You may be able to sense or intuit that new beginnings or a new chapter is on its way.

New Moon 

When the New Moon lands on your birthday it signifies a time of new beginnings. The year ahead for you will be about planting seeds and laying the foundation for the road ahead.

The year ahead may also be one of introspection, where you are deciding what it is that you really want for yourself and your life moving forward. You may also have to make some changes and do away with things that are no longer serving your highest good.

When your birthday falls on a New Moon your ability to create and manifest will also be high. While you may not see the fruits of your labour just yet, you will be at a highly magical point to manifest and start creating all that you want to see and experience in your life.

First Quarter Moon

The First Quarter Moon is also significant and generally falls about one week after the New Moon. If your birthday falls on the First Quarter Moon, you are also likely to feel the effects of the New Moon for the year ahead.

There will be an emphasis however, on working hard and preparing for your full bloom moment. You may be getting all the final pieces in place during the year so you can prepare and welcome in all the gifts you will receive when your bounty is in full bloom.
