Spring Equinox and Aries New Moon — March 15-22 2023


The Spring equinox on Tuesday heralds a new season and a new era. Pluto is poised in the final days in Capricorn, doubly approaching a trine aspect to Ceres retro in Libra. Ceres is in an opposition aspect to the Sun and Moon at the New Moon. A transformation to custodial care of the economy for the future generations begins, with the Moon in Pisces sextile aspect to Uranus in Taurus, and semi-sextile to Jupiter in Aries. An easing of economic conditions prevents serious disruptions. The New Moon in Aries, less than a full day past the equinox, shows Venus’ conjunction aspect to Rahu in Taurus. A stellium in Aries accompanies the New Moon with Mercury, Chiron, and Jupiter. A historical new chapter propels us into a future of social and economic dimensions, putting institutions in jeopardy. Institutions serve the masses, so Pisces (and the 12 House) is the astrological sign of interest for institutions. They will need revitalization. Financial loss is represented by Uranus in Taurus, a planet that signifies reversals, while Venus’ conjunction with Rahu in Taurus at the equinox is a sign of recovery from loss, although there may be pain involved.
