Venus will make an exact conjunction to the North Node in Taurus, which she rules, tomorrow March 21 at 1.30 am. This energy will be great for moving towards the things you desire to achieve, on a material sense as well as from a spiritual growth dimension.
The Sun will enter the sign of Aries for the 2023 Aries Equinox seven hours later, at 8.24 am, setting up a new cycle until his Cancer Ingress on June 22! This looks like a positive and productive period, as he will be conjunct Metis, the Roman version of Pallas Athens and more widely conjunct Mercury. Your ability to see things clearly and get to the bottom of issues with your mind, will be enhanced over this period. Make sure you take advantage of it! There will be a spiritual Water Grand Trine between Prosperina (Roman Persephone) in Pisces, Hecate in Cancer and both Hopi and Apollo in Scorpio, all in the first degree of their sign, so in less than a degree from exact with Sol. He connects to their pattern through a quincunx aspect to Hopi! So, nature and your unconscious side will also be emphasized over the next 3 month period!!!
The Aries New Moon on March 22 will bring the opportunity for personal fulfillment! At 4.23 am (AEDT) and 0 degrees and 49 minutes of Aries, it will be the first of two New Moons in the sign during 2023, so a true “Blue Moon”. This is also the last sign in the whole 360 degree cycle of the Sabian Symbols, so an ending ready for a whole new beginning for the Moon cycle!!! The degree of the New Moon moves backwards through the Zodiac like the Nodes. Wow all these new cycles starting in the month of March! The Sabian symbol for this 1st degree of Aries is “A woman just risen from the sea. A seal is embracing her” it emphasises the emergence of new forms and the potentiality of consciousness, the impulse to BE!
Sol and Luna will be widely applying to conjunct Mercury, in an Aries stellium with 3 other planets! Actually another 12 if we take into account the mob of my intuitive asteroids. Mars the ruler of the sign, will be making a wide OOS square to the lunation and a tighter square to Neptune in Pisces (who will also be in a wide OOS conjunction to the Moon)! Pluto will be in a T-Square to the Nodal Axis by less than 5 degree orb from March 10 to December 9 throughout 2023, (this being the first such lunation). Pluto will be making aspects to every New Moon until August too, as he will retrograde between 0 degrees 22 minutes of Aquarius and 28 Capricorn 32, whilst the New Moon degree moves back through the various signs to 23 degrees 17 minutes of Leo.
This month the lunation at 0 degrees Aries 49’ will make an OOS sextile to Pluto at 29 Capricorn 58’ by an orb of just 50’, adding to the transformative energy of the New Moon in generating new ideas, starting new projects, taking the lead, improving your personal confidence, and taking a few risks. Pluto will be closely conjunct the asteroid Eros bringing life force and sensuality to the equation. Venus will still be closely conjunct to the Taurus North Node that she rules following their recent exact conjunction at 1.30 am on March 21.
With the Sun and Moon in the sign of Aries, the energy focus is on:
