JAMIE PARTRIDGE: “New Moon 27 March 2017 — Mixed Blessings”

The Fool

The New Moon on Monday 27 March, 2017 is at 7 degrees Aries.  The New Moon March 2017 astrology is full of contradictions.  Venus with the New Moon brings hope of love and money.  But Venus retrograde brings risk of loss and a broken heart.

The March 2017 New Moon mixed blessings don’t stop with Venus.  Other features of the New Moon horoscope show opportunities for love and success but always with a catch.

The key to handling this complicated New Moon is to choose your options carefully.  Taking the moral high ground is the simplest and easiest way to find peace and love in the weeks ahead.

New Moon Meaning

A New Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle.  Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative.  This is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf or starting any new project.

All possibilities are on the table as you put yourself at the center of plans for your future.  Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The influence of the March 27 New Moon lasts for four weeks up to the April 26 New Moon.  The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this New Moon Cycle.  This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from March 27 to the April 11 Full Moon.

New Moon March 2017 Astrology

The March 27 New Moon falls at 7°37′ Aries.  This is within range of one fixed star and one planet.  The fixed star gives an even mix of good and bad qualities.  The planet Venus is peaceful and loving, but is retrograde so offers mixed blessings as well.

There are two more aspects of influence in the New Moon March 2017 astrology chart shown below.  A definite theme for this New Moon emerges with one of these aspects being harmonious blue while the other is challenging red.

Before looking closer at the star and aspects, my feeling is that the mix of blessings is more positive than negative.  I like the friendly blue aspect hugging the New Moon, as if protecting it from the threatening square aspect in the distance.

New Moon March 2017 Star

At 9°23′ Aries, fixed star Algenib is within its 2°00′ orb of influence from the New Moon.  But only by 0°14′, so of moderate influence only.  The even mix of good and bad qualities include a strong will and determination but also misfortune and dishonor.

A New Moon conjunct Algenib gives a fighting spirit and love of learning but risk of dishonor, scandal or trouble through writings.

Both Sun and Moon with this star can affect the health.  If badly aspected or with Mars, Saturn or Uranus, pain or heat would be felt in your head between your nose and upper teeth, including gums and inner ears.

New Moon March 2017 Aspects

New Moon conjunct Venus means your new Moon goals will involve love and money.  Sun conjunct Venus together with Moon conjunct Venus is normally a sign of loving relationships, harmony and peace.  However, a closer look at the New Moon March 2017 astrology chart above shows a red R symbol next to Venus.

Venus retrograde complicates your new Moon goals.  If already in love then an ex-lover arriving on the scene may cause problems.  Instant attraction and whirlwind romances are possible, whether single or married.  Choose your options carefully. Hasty decisions based more on lust than love will only end in sorrow.

You can find true love but some hardship or delay can be expected.  These shared burdens are a sign of fated love and the price you must pay to be together.  Self love, patience and good timing will increase your chance of a loving and lasting relationship.

Mars sextile Neptune increases your sensual desires making this an ideal time for romance.  Your mystic allure will attract people more in tune with your level of spiritual development.  You may even find your soul mate.  Your strong sense of what is right and true will guide you in your actions.

Jupiter square Pluto makes you want to succeed, and succeed big-time.  Success, power and influence are all possible but without some care there will be a price to pay.  Ruthless determination, greed and corruption may get you there quicker or make you more money but at what cost?  Mars sextile Neptune will provide the moral guidance to stay out of trouble if you so desire.

If New Moon March 2017 directly impacts your Sun Sign you can read about its effect in your monthly horoscope.  For more detail about how it influences your natal chart see New Moon Transits.

JAMIE PARTRIDGE: “Full Moon 12 March 2017 — Stress Relief”

Full Moon March 2017

The Full Moon on Sunday March 12, 2017 is at 22 degrees Virgo. The Full Moon March 2017 astrology reveals an increase in recent tensions. Stressful relationships between partners and between nations will see a flurry of activity in a desperate search for answers.

The March 2017 Full Moon problems can only be resolved by taking a deep look at the complex issues involved. Intense emotional encounters and psychological analysis can lead to positive transformations on the way to peace and harmony.

Full Moon Meaning

A Full Moon is the Sun opposite Moon which highlights opposing forces or polarities in your life. These can include your ego versus emotions, your work versus home, or what you need versus what you want. Inner tension and external pressures can lead to personal conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a Full Moon. Use you increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an objective and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

A Full Moon is related to the previous New Moon. Your February 26 Solar Eclipse goals can now be fine-tuned or completed, it is harvest time. However, the effect of eclipses continues for six month so not all goals will be fully completed. Emotional adjustments can be made in response to those new goals. The Full Moon effect lasts for two weeks up to the next new moon, in this case the March 27 New Moon.

Full Moon March 2017 Astrology

The March 12 Full Moon is influenced by three major factors apart from the Sun opposite Moon. Jupiter opposite Uranus connects directly to the Full Moon through minor aspects. At 22°13′ Virgo, the Full Moon also tightly aligns with the major fixed star Denebola (21°51′ Virgo).

Finally, the Full Moon March 2017 Astrology chart below shows a neat rectangular aspect pattern. This stimulating configuration is formed by Jupiter opposite Uranus lying at a 30 degree angle to Sun opposite Moon.

The Full Moon horoscope below also shows a number of minor celestial bodies. Asteroid Pallas Athena and Chiron are with the Sun. Minor planet Eris is with Uranus. I have included these little ones for the more inquisitive students of astrology to ponder.

I have more than enough to ponder deciphering two oppositions, an aspect pattern and a fixed star. I will start by looking at each influence on its own. Combining the three factors to find the Full Moon meaning will be the hard part.

Full Moon March 2017 Astrology

Full Moon March 2017 Stresses

Fixed star Denebola has the planetary nature of Venus and Saturn. It can give either preferment or fall, depending on which planetary nature is stronger. Venus gives a feeling of peace and safety. It can make you noble, daring, self-controlled and generous.

The Saturn character dominates when the Tail of the Lion is pulled. Misfortune and disgrace come when others take advantage of this generous and noble character. It brings despair, regrets, public disgrace, and happiness turned to anger.

Denebola has a special forward-looking attribute. Drawing upon past experience leads to the wise and constructive use of the Lions incredible strength. In mundane astrology it triggers major catastrophes and misfortune from the elements of nature.

Moon conjunct Denebola: Honor and preferment among the vulgar but final disgrace and ruin, violent disease of vital organ, blindness and injuries to the eyes, accidents, losses through servants, domestic quarrels, temporary separation from marriage partner. [1]

Jupiter opposite Uranus greatly increases your need for personal freedom and excitement. You will feel a strong urge to rebel against anything that is stopping you from having fun and doing what you want. A sudden event can release your built up tension and lead to a major change in circumstances. The more restricted you have felt, the more upsetting the change will be.

There is a tendency to totally renew and start afresh. However, the more extreme the change, the harder it is to adjust to the new conditions. This is especially so if a close relationship has been holding you down. Consider also, the financial ramifications of any big change.

The Rectangular Aspect Pattern is called an Irritation or Stimulus Rectangle. [2] The red oppositions create a lot of activity. They make you want to achieve something and reach goals. Sun opposite Moon sees the activity centered on intimate relationships and balancing polarities. Jupiter opposite Uranus exaggerates the differences between partners. The gap between two possibilities becomes more extreme and dramatically increases tension.

The outer green aspects absorb the constant inner tension but rest and relaxation are almost impossible. The high energy never stops and is constantly recharging. You will be thinking up new possibilities. Feeling “on call” all the time can make you very nervous. A permanent state of tension is like always being “on the go”.

The flexible green outer gives the whole structure great stability but also creates a big target. You may be overly defensive to verbal attack. Difficulty communicating will appear as uncertainty and insecurity. You may feel a compulsion to learn in order to alleviate the inner tension. Avoid a tendency to force feed others with your newly gained knowledge.

Full Moon March 2017 Relief

Any blue aspects attached to the Irritation Rectangle will act like a pressure valve to release the build up of inner tension trapped inside. The Full Moon trine Pluto is not shown in the Full Moon March 2017 Astrology chart above. You have to look closer to find it in the aspect table to the left of the chart.

Harmonious blue aspects are weaker than challenging red aspects. The orb of Moon trine Pluto is about three times that of the tense red aspects. This means that the way to find rest and relaxation is not initially obvious. Some irritation and stress must be felt before the blue harmonious state is sought after.

Moon trine Pluto reveals the answers to your problems by increasing your emotional sensitivity and psychic perception. You will feel things more powerfully and are likely to be transformed by your intense emotional reactions.

Someone is likely to move you deeply and have a strong influence on your life. Intense emotional connections may result in new relationships. There would be a strong karmic pull between you and any destiny encounter.

Sun trine Pluto provides a more conscious or rational way to find peaceful solution to stressful relationships. It brings intense and deep experiences. Whatever the source of your irritation, you will be driven to research and investigate it so you gain the full understanding of the problem.

You will have greater power and influence over your own life, allowing for positive transformations. You can also exert this greater power and influence over the events in your life and over the people around you. Personal or professional problems can be more easily resolved now.

In summary, the Full Moon March 2017 astrology points to some unexpected drama or aggravation an existing problem. The stressful situation is made worse by extreme beliefs and a widening gap between two sides or between two possible options.

Rushing around in a desperate search for answers would only escalate tensions. Intense focus and deep analysis are required to reveal the solution. Keen perceptive skills, strong leadership and sensitivity then relieve the stress. The solution to your problems will involve a positive inner transformation.
