The Pisces New Moon Leads to Resolution — February 15-22 2023


Two major conjunction aspects are forming to begin this week’s review, namely, Venus-Neptune in Pisces and Sun-Saturn in Aquarius. Both conjunction aspects have universal significance in the signs of Aquarius and Pisces and the planets involved. Venus is empowering Neptune in its role of promoting change through destructive events. The Sun empowers Saturn to focus on radical transformation. The Sun’s ingress to Pisces on Saturday and the New Moon on Sunday bring about the closing phases of investigations in the US and rescue and relief operations following the massive earthquake in Tudkiye and Syria. These astrological events indicate that the world is closing ranks, and dissolving leadership roles, while searching for a way to a transformation in utilization for resources and monitoring of powerful leaders.

Summary of Major Aspects of the Week

Wednesday February 15th — The Moon in Sagittarius makes harsh square aspects to the soft conjunction aspect of Neptune and Venus in Pisces. Aimed at gaining influence, politicians with appeals to the indigent and low-income people and their advocates gain resonance. The second major conjunction aspect forming, the Sun and Saturn in Aquarius, receives a sextile aspect from the Moon, for more focused comments on reform. Mercury also in Aquarius, approaches a sextile aspect to Jupiter in Aries. Uranus in Taurus is the dispositor of the planets in Aquarius, and receives the consequences, focusing on the economic issues of the campaigns. Is it good or bad for the economy? And more personally, for the individual’s welfare. Chiron in Aries separates from the sextile aspect to Mars in Gemini appeals to deeper wisdom that can promote reform. Pluto in the final degree of Capricorn signals impending change to government rules and laws, although the uncertainty could cause anxiety.

Thursday February 16th — The Moon in Capricorn makes a square aspect to Jupiter in Aries by mid-day, US time zones. In the first decan of Capricorn, the Moon gathers determined efforts to reach goals, while square aspect to Jupiter means more intensified power is released. The Sun partile conjunction aspect with Saturn in Aquarius reaffirms commitments made.  Venus supersedes the conjunction with Neptune, empowers humanitarian voices against repression. Mercury in Aquarius approaches the sextile aspect with Jupiter in Aries, for more innovation. Speeches about progress for social reform with implementation of progressive programs are likely, with plans for a new social order. The Moon makes an easy trine aspect to Uranus in Taurus, earth signs, seems to resolve active measures by authorities, occurs pre-dawn US time zones, so less likely to be noticed in the USA, although morning hours on Friday in the middle eastern nations, Far East, and Australia.
