Appearing on March 9 at 1:45 pm ET, March’s Full Moon is a special one, opening the door to the energies of the spring as we prepare for the equinox on March 19. It’s a super moon—an intense event followed by even more super moons. The energy will be quite strong.
Sun is in Pisces, bringing the floating feeling of water. Sun sextiles (gently positive) Mars, which increases enthusiasm and energy, Jupiter, expanding optimism and good fortune, Saturn, bestowing patience and perseverance, and Pluto, which gives desire and determination Moon (emotions) is in the opposite sign of Virgo, an earth sign that likes order, precision, and routine. Likely, we’ll move between both extremes.
The Moon bestows excellent energy in many areas of life. Moon trines Mars (action), heightening emotional strength, Jupiter (expansion), bringing emotional warmth and generosity, Saturn (structure, karma), heightening organization skills, and Pluto (will, transformation), conferring emotional power and will.
With many lovely aspects, we have to question why the world feels so heavy and chaotic? Since 2020 began, we’ve experienced strong aspects with Pluto, which rules and influences collective energy. Pluto also reveals the underlying darkness, which is hidden in the world. Mars conjuncts (close to) Saturn (limitation, karma), and the two planets carry heavy energy from the underworld. Their purpose is to reveal the energy of the darkness, so we can find the discipline and strength (and methods) to overcome it. At the moment, the news and other forces spread lower information such as fear and panic through broadcasts. We’re only begun our practice of changing the world through higher vibrations, and it requires time.
Moon opposes Neptune (illusion, mysticism), clouding our vision and giving a sense of uncertainty (For example, we knew rain was needed for Australia, but it’s more difficult to create a solution to the coronavirus, the devastation of natural resources, and political instability.) Metaphysics teaches that the universe will provide the information and the “how” if we hold to a higher vision. (The answers may come and go. If we listen to our heart, the solutions will come.)
Mercury (communications) remains in retrograde until March 10, which will open the door to action desires, and potential plans. Mercury (communications) is in Aquarius, an air sign, which heightens mental ability and originality. The planet sextiles Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), opening our consciousness to new streams of thought. (It’s a good time for focusing on aspects of life that require change.)
Venus (love, relationships) is placed in Taurus, an earth sign ruled by Venus. This placement helps in seeing beauty of all kinds—in nature, love, and life. Venus squares Saturn (karma), giving energy to work through karma and beliefs based on life experiences that relate to love. Venus conjuncts (close to) Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), and this gives the power to move into a state of unconditional love to create positive change. Venus conjunct Uranus can also make relationships feel exciting and intense.
Mars (action, male energy) conjuncts Jupiter (good fortune, expansion), increasing our ability to move the direction of new paths and possibilities. It heightens energy, strength, and confidence. Mars conjuncts (close to) Pluto (subconscious, transmutation), and this aspect can give courage in moving through old blocks and patterns, or it can lead to egoic grasps of power. (Any aspect with Pluto applies to group and collective consciousness, i.e. the direction of the higher and lower self on a global level.)
Jupiter (expansion, good luck) conjuncts Saturn (limitation, karma), which can cause a push me/pull me energy between warmth and enthusiasm and contraction/limitation. Jupiter and Saturn are placed in Capricorn, a male, earth sign that rules ambition and structures in the outer world. It’s an odd combination of death/rebirth that can give the vision to create a new world from old structures—at its best. (Some of its negative aspects are currently shown through 5G, destruction of national parks and resources, etc. However, many other alternatives are present if we hold the vision.)
Saturn (limitation, karma) squares Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), which can make changes feel frustrating. It throws unexpected obstacles, changes, and delays on the visible path of life, but it also asks for greater flexibility, openness, and the ability to go with the flow. When we can take this step, life realigns with the correct path. (It’s important to acknowledge the many paths that lead to the top of the mountain.)
The Big Conjunctions
Mars (action), Jupiter (expansion), and Saturn (limitation) conjunct Pluto (underworld, transmutation). All four planets are in Capricorn, the sign of the goat, which is accompanied by the desire to climb and create structures in the outer world.
Conjunctions between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn continue throughout 2020, and no one knows exactly what it means because it doesn’t happen very often. Having said this, it affects collective consciousness, which always involves a choice. If we truly want a higher reality, we must work on it through higher consciousness, positive visuals, and emitting positive vibrations. (We also have to look at the darkness with a clear eye to discern bigger truths. Otherwise, we don’t know where we need to work.) Also, we have to believe in our power to create, but this is the basic work of metaphysics—a task that most of us agreed to take on in this lifetime.
- Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) provide excellent energy in many aspects of life, including vitality, determination, positive emotions and will. Tune into the positive vibrations and notice what you love about life. With Sun in Pisces and Mercury (communications) in retrograde, there may be a passive, slightly tired feeling.
- Meditate and/or become very still. Let your heart find the answers for your life. Moon’s opposition with Neptune can make solutions feel hazy or unclear, but you can overcome it with this technique.
- Mercury (communication, mind) in Aquarius gives brilliant insights and new solutions. Take time to consider life from different perspectives.
- Venus (love) in Taurus provides a wonderful love vibration. It can help in aligning with the beauty of nature, the movement of the trees, or the color of the sky. Slow down and take in the first sightings of spring.
- Jupiter (good fortune) and Saturn (limitation/karma) are conjunct. On one level, it’s time to release particular aspects of life. On another, it’s important to ponder the creation of the next step in your life.
- The Big Conjunction between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto is about understanding, exploring, and experiencing the collective’s influence on a personal and global level. For those of us on a higher level, it’s important to realize how the placement of consciousness affects the world. (Work on those higher vibrations and positive visuals.)
Sabian Symbols, based on the work of Lynda Hill
Sun sits on Pisces 20, “A Table Set for an Evening Meal” indicates provision of one’s necessities and the promise of nourishment and care. The food, table, and company are waiting, and the best meals come with connection and a positive attitude from all who eat at the table. It may represent an assurance from the universe that our needs will be met, and we will find the necessary support on our spiritual journey.
Moon is placed on Virgo 20, “A Caravan of Cars Headed for the Promised Land”. The image depicts a journey of people to a promised land, which provides a new way of life. It can represent leaving behind stagnation, habits, and repeated cycles to move into new opportunities with like-minded people.
Mercury is on Aquarius 29, “A Butterfly Emerging from a Chrysalis”. The image reflects the magic of awakening—a transformation into a new, beautiful form. (Mercury involves thought, so we may encounter new methods of thinking about ourselves and life such as the power of the inner self!)
Venus sits on Taurus 6, “A Bridge Being Built Across a High Narrow Gorge”, which is a perfect symbol for Venus in Taurus. Venus rules love, and it is love that leads us through impossible places that bridge old and new consciousness.
Mars is on Capricorn 16, “School Grounds Filled with Boys and Girls in Gymnasium Suits”. The school ground points to a group learning experience that is physical in the outdoors. School children are often a mix of many groups of people with different levels of intelligence, who are learning together. (Mars rules energy at large, and it could refer to our current state with a mixture of individuals who want to learn about the world and themselves in physical reality.)
Jupiter is placed on Capricorn 22, “A General Gracefully Accepting Defeat”. It’s not the game; it’s how we play it. If we play by the rules of the universe, it may look like a loss in the outer when it’s a truly a gain in the inner world because we’ve remained true. It’s discovering true nobility of character and knowing when to let go.
