September's new moon points the way to Mars, Jupiter and more

"during new moons, if you drew a line from the pole star due south through the sun, it would hit the moon."

Polaris is some 350 light years from us. Wouldn't any line drawn from Polaris through the Sun enter the Sun at nearly it's north pole, not even approaching the orbit of the Earth?
