Disseminating Moon and Slowed Progress — March 8-15 2023


The Moon ingress to Libra and the disseminating phase, starting with the sesquiquadrate aspect at 135 deg of separation from the Sun. The Full Moon phase is reached at the opposition aspect, maintained until the sesquiquadrate. The disseminating phase is complementary to the Gibbous phase prior to the Full Moon. A tendency to be more social at the disseminating phase, less concerned with overcoming obstacles. We are more likely to share experiences in the disseminating phase. The trine aspect is encountered during this phase, as a greater ease in relationships is experienced. Following the winter solstice, the Earth is moving toward the spring equinox, as new attitudes and personal views are expressed. Saturn has just this week made the ingress to Pisces for a stellium of four planets in the Neptune ruled sign, Saturn, Mercury, Sun, and Neptune. Saturn requires more focus to deal with every situation. In Pisces, that is a big order. In Pisces, there is no clear limitation. From the war in Ukraine to education policies to political disputes, the amorphous issues are now undergoing a more focused analysis, slowly building a success.

A look Ahead: The equinox, with the day and night of equal length (at least at the equator), happens on March 20 at 21:26 UT, and the Sun ingress to Aries. The New Moon in Aries occurs on March 21 17:24 UT. Pluto ingress to Aquarius on March 24.

Summary of Major Aspects of the Week

Wednesday March 8thThe Moon ingress to Libra at 14:45 UT, the last aspect at 14:08 is a trine aspect to Pluto at 29 deg Capricorn — an analysis of power and power figures draws fascination. The Moon makes a quincunx aspect to Saturn in Aquarius and a conjunction aspect with Ceres retro at 3 deg Libra. The Moon and Ceres form the handle of a basket shape, all other planets now located in an opposing hemisphere, from Capricorn to Gemini. Ceres receives additional support and power, able to relate to the other planets although no close aspects are made other than the conjunction aspect with the Moon. Therefore, the introspective personality traits are empowered, in separation from the busy interactive affairs. The Moon is nurturing, although in the air sign Libra, a deeper understanding of equality and fairness can be obtained. Venus, the ruler of Libra, is currently posited in Aries, where fairness to self is most concerning. Self-improvement through inner reflection is one way to experience this aspect. Another way to see it is that Venus in Aries represents the winner of the protracted libel suits pending. Venus approaches a sextile aspect to Mars in Gemini. The goal set is for personal gain. Jupiter in Aries is approaching the conjunction aspect with Chiron. It’s possible to overcome difficulties by applying greater insight.

The Moon quincunx aspect to Mercury in Pisces may add a dimension of uncertainty. Another quincunx aspect to the Sun in Pisces, may enhance or distract from personal goals. Advancement through creative empathy is possible. Try to understand the situation before acting. The Moon transits to the opposition aspect with Venus in Aries, and a trine aspect to Mars in Gemini.
