First New Moon in Aries 2023

General Predictions for the New Moon in Aries:

On March the 21st, at 17:24 UT, the Moon meets the Sun, in Aries, forming the New Moon. This is the first of two New Moons in Aries, as the next time the Sun will meet the Moon, both planets will barely be in Aries, again. Also, keep in mind that the coming Full Moon is the beginning of the Ecliptic Period.

On the eve of this New Moon, the Sun changed its zodiac, and so did Mercury, the previous day. Now, during this fortnight, on the 23rd, Pluto leaves Capricorn, for the first time since November 2008. It will be a short visit in Aquarius, which will last until the 11th of June, but, still, it’s a very significant shift of energies. Later in the fortnight, on the 25th of March, another significant change happens, as Mars, after seven months in Gemini, enters Cancer. Lastly, on the 3rd of April, just 3 days before the Full Moon, Mercury, too, changes its zodiac and enters Taurus.

Moreover, both Mercury and Pluto slow down a bit. It’s not very noticeable, yet, but it’s a reminder that the “golden period” with all planets being Direct is coming to an end. Indeed, on the day after the next New Moon, Mercury will turn Retrograde, and, from then on, there won’t be another period with all planets Direct in 2023.

So, the planetary scenery changes quite significantly during this fortnight.

The inauspicious aspects of the New Moon:

Mars squares Neptune. The aspect became accurate on the 14th of March, and it got activated on the 15th of February. It will remain active until the Full Moon of the 6th of April. Amongst else, this aspect can bring some tension in our personal relationships. Our emotional balance is more sensitive, too. Also, our emotions can cloud our logic.

Also, Mars squares the Sun. This square became accurate on the 16th of March, and it got activated on 28th of February. It will remain active until the 5th of April. Amongst else, this aspect can make us more impatient and easier to get irritated. Try to avoid any unnecessary quarrels and the like.

Also, Mars still squares Mercury. This aspect became accurate on the 17th of March. It’s been affecting us since the 11th of March and it will continue doing so until the 23rd of the month. Amongst else, this aspect can bring some tension in our social interactions. Work related social activity needs more attention. Also, driving needs more caution.

Venus squares Pluto. The aspect became accurate on the 16th of March, while Venus was still in Aries and Pluto was in Capricorn. It got activated on the 9th of March. The square will remain active until the 25th of March, when Venus will be in Taurus and Pluto will be in Aquarius. Amongst else, this aspect can stress our emotional condition. It can also challenge our love life.

Similarly, Mercury squares Pluto. Accurately so, on the 3rd of April, when Mercury will be in Taurus and Pluto will be in Aquarius. The aspect, though, will be active from the 30th of March, when Mercury will still be in Aries, and until the 11th of April. Amongst else, this square can challenge our emotional health and condition. Financial dealings, too, need a wiser consideration.

The auspicious aspects of the New Moon:

Neptune’s years-long hexagon with Pluto has started getting stronger. As Pluto is slowing down, while Neptune is in full speed, relatively fast too, for two slow-moving planets. As we’ve said, although this hexagon will be becoming stronger and weaker many times, without ever losing most of its strength, it won’t become accurate again until the 24th of July 2026. By then, though, both planets will have changed their zodiacs.

Amongst else, this hexagon empowers magic and helps us heal our souls, and our relationships. Physical healing, and especially via traditional methods, also receives some help. Progress in medicine and pharmacology, in a global level can receive support, too.

Also, Venus is in a hexagon with Mars. The aspect became accurate on the 11th of March, and started affecting us on the 28th of February. It will continue blessing us until the 25th of March. Amongst else, this aspect can support love and social life. It can also support our efforts for finding a new love, or for expanding our social circles.

The Sun conjuncts Neptune. This aspect became accurate on the 15th of March, and started affecting us on the 6th of March. It will remain active until the 26th of March. Amongst else this conjunction can bring some light in our emotional condition, and our personal relationships. A much needed help as Mars is currently stressing Neptune. And the Sun, of course. Furthermore, magic receives an extra boosting from this aspect.

Also, the Sun conjuncts Mercury. This conjunction became accurate on the 17th of March. It has been active since the 7th of March and it will remain so until the 27th of the month. Amongst else, this conjunction can support social life. It also supports all work and money matters.

Moreover, Mercury conjuncts Jupiter. Accurately so on the 28th of March. The aspect will be active from the 23rd of March and until the 4th of April. Amongst else, this aspect can support finances, trade – and even more so, international trade – as well as social life. This is a good period for expanding our social circles, too.

The Sun, too, conjuncts Jupiter. Accurately so on the 11th of April. The conjunction will be blessing us, though, from the 30th of March and until the 25th of April. The two Lucky Stars cooperating with each other can always bring many blessings. A conjunction may not be as harmonious as a triangle, but it’s a stronger aspect. So, make sure you avoid exaggerations, and things will be good. Financial and career matters receive an extra support from this aspect.

Venus forms a hexagon with Saturn. This aspect, too, became accurate on the 17th of March. It started affecting us on the 9th of March and it will continue doing so until the 27th of the month. Amongst else, this aspect can support emotional healing, and the healing of our personal relationships. It can also support love life, the arts and meditation.

Also, Mercury forms a hexagon with Pluto. The aspect is active since the 14th of March, and it became accurate on the 19th. It will remain active until the 24th of the month. Amongst, else, this aspect strengthens magic. It can also help with all health and money matters.

Similarly, the Sun forms a hexagon with Pluto. The aspect became accurate on the the 20th of March, just before the Sun left Pisces, and Pluto was still be in Capricorn. The hexagon’s period of activity, though, is from the 11th of March and until the 31st of the month. By then, the Sun will be in Aries and Pluto will be in Aquarius. Amongst else, this hexagon, too, can support financial matters. It can also further strengthen magic.

Venus conjuncts Uranus. Accurately so, on the 30th of March. The aspect will be active from the 23rd of March and until the 8th of April. Amongst else, this aspect can help with financial and work matters. Internet based jobs, art related and technology related ones, receive even better energies. The conjunction can also support love and social life. It can also help singles find a new love. That’s even more important for Taurus as their governor (Venus) and the ruler of their Love House (Pluto) are in odds until the 25th. Therefore, the change in their love life is likely to be more dramatic, but in a positive way.

Moreover, Venus forms a hexagon with Neptune. Accurately so, on the 7th of April. The aspect will be active from the 30th of March and until the 16th of April. Amongst else, this hexagon can help love and social life. It can also help us heal and nourish our personal relationships. Furthermore, it supports love, beautification, healing and prosperity magic.

Also, Venus will start forming a triangle with Pluto. The aspect will get activated on the 3rd of April, so it won’t become strong until the Full Moon. Therefore, it will mostly affect the next fortnight. The triangle will become accurate on the 11th of April and it will remain active until the 20th of the month. Amongst else, this aspect supports love life, social life, finances and magic.

Mars forms a triangle with Saturn. The aspect will become accurate on the 30th of March, when Mars will be in Cancer and Saturn will be in Pisces. Nonetheless, the triangle got activated on the 2nd of March, when Mars was in Gemini and Saturn was in Aquarius. The aspect will remain active until the 23rd of April. Those two difficult planets cooperating in the most harmonious way is a great blessing. This triangle can raise our motivation and determination and it can help us with achieving our goals, or making a significant progress on them. Moreover, it supports health, healing and creative visualisation.

Also, Mars forms a hexagon with Mercury. Accurately so, for the first time, on the 8th of April, when Mercury will be Direct. The aspect will be active from the 31st of March and until the 3rd of May. During this period it will become accurate again on the 24th of April, when Mercury will be Retrograde. Amongst else, this aspect can support social life and also with meeting new people. It can also boost our self-confidence and our self-motivation. Our mind can be clearer and faster, too. More so when Mercury is Direct. Make sure it won’t become hasty, when Mercury will be Retrograde, or when Mars, or Mercury receive stress from the Moon.

Finally, Mercury forms a hexagon with Saturn. Accurately so on the 5th of April, when both planets will be Direct. The aspect will be active from the 31st of March and until the 16th of April. Then, it will pause activity until the 26th, when it will be reactivated again, to remain active until 2nd of June. During this period, it will become accurate again another two times. The second time the aspect will be accurate will be on the 12th of May, when Mercury will be Retrograde. The third time will be on the 19th of May, when Mercury will have turned Direct again. Saturn will be Direct for the whole period. Obviously, while Mercury is Direct, this aspect is more beneficial.

Amongst else, this long-lasting aspect strongly supports meditation and visualisation. Due to its rare long duration, it’s also a good period for learning such techniques and achieve a significant progress with them. The hexagon can also help us keep a clear mind and make wise decisions. A blessing that will make the coming Retrograde Mercury much easier. It can also help us with every kind of healing, including karma healing (more so when Mercury will be Retrograde), as well as the healing of our personal relationships (more so, when Mercury is Direct).

Summarising:

So, this is a mostly beneficial New Moon and waxing Moon period. Mars’ tension slowly calms down. Also, although there are as many stressful aspects as during the previous fortnight, they won’t overstress any area of our lives. That’s because they aren’t focusing on the same Houses, and, more importantly, there are many more beneficial aspects in action. The second half of the fortnight, though, seems calmer, as both the beneficial and the stressful aspects are fewer.

In any case, this is a period we should do our best to achieve as much as possible, as well as to start as many of our long-term plans and projects as possible. After all, on the coming Full Moon of the 6th of April, the Ecliptic Period starts, and, then, on the day of the first Eclipse, the New Moon of the 20th of April, Mercury turns Retrograde. As we’ve said, after then, there won’t be another period when all planets will be direct, until the 27th of January 2024.

Usually I don’t mention the luckiest zodiacs of the fortnight, but an exception is needed this time, as Aries is by far the luckiest zodiac of the fortnight and Sagittarius comes second. If you belong in these zodiac, or your Ascendant is there, or important, or many planets are there, make sure you won’t let it pass without doing your best.

New Moon Predictions for Aries:

This is a very important and very helpful New Moon and waxing Moon period for you. Indeed, there is only one planet in a stressful alignment with your zodiac throughout the fortnight, other than the 24th, when there is none. The only problem is that from the 25th the planet in a stressful alignment is the ruler of your zodiac, Mars, and it gives some direct stress in your zodiac throughout the fortnight. Nonetheless, at the same time, there are three planets in your zodiac, on the day of this New Moon and until the 3rd of April, and they cooperate nicely with each other. Moreover, there is at least one other planet in a beneficial alignment. Two on the 24th. Also, most planets are still at the Eastern part of your chart.

Therefore, there is much strength gathering in your zodiac, and most of it is beneficial one. Hence, the whole fortnight is going to be mostly good and has the potency to help you with every goal of yours. Your mood and your emotional condition need some support, throughout the fortnight. Also, Work, career and business matters receive some stress, until the 25th, while money matters do so after the 30th of March. Nonetheless, work, career and business matters, also receive at least some support throughout the fortnight and much of it until the 24th, while finance receive more support than stress throughout the fortnight. Also, your productivity is quite good. Furthermore, social life receive some extra support. As we’ve said, all fields of your life receive at least some support. Those are the ones they receive much more.

On top of that, there are two planets in your zodiac, including the ruler of your zodiac, and they’ll become three on the 3rd of April. Health, although is not directly affected, need some extra care until the 25th. Your mood and your emotional condition, though, need support during the whole fortnight. Also, work, career and business matters might not be too easy, but they should be much easier than until recently. There are also plenty aspects supporting them, now, after all.

Your productivity is quite good, too, and much progress can be achieved with all your projects. Also, social life receives mostly supportive energies and it can be more active than you expect. Productive, too, in some cases. Taurus has become strong when Venus entered the zodiac on the 16th of March, and it will become even stronger on the 3rd of April. From then on, and until the 21st of May, not counting the Moon, three planets will be in your zodiac, other than for 9 days. Therefore, you can achieve progress with anything you focus your efforts on. Don’t waste time, though, as the Ecliptic Period will strongly affect you.

New Moon Predictions for Gemini:

Moreover, the ruler of your zodiac is in a beneficial alignment until the 3rd of April, while your Health Planet enters a beneficial alignment on the 23rd of March. Therefore, things should be mostly good, and health should feel better. Regarding health, even more so, after the 30th of March. Your mood and your emotional condition, too, needs some extra support. Money is probably the only aspect of your life that receives more stressful than beneficial influences, during this fortnight, so act wisely when it comes to it. Income, though, does receive support.

Work, career and business matters, in general, can face a few challenges, but there are many beneficial aspects influencing them. Therefore, much progress and successes are happening, despite any difficulties. Your productivity is quite good, too. The same is true for your imagination and inspiration. Also, social life can be quite active and mostly pleasantly so. Furthermore, your spiritual abilities are more capable than usual.

Some more tension, too, unfortunately. Therefore, health, although it doesn’t receive any direct stress, needs a better care. Emotional health and your mood, more so, as they receive stress. Work, career and business matters, too, receive some stress, and situations in your work environment can become more challenging.

Nonetheless, there is much support on those matters. Much of it. Therefore, despite the difficulties, progress and successes, there, are achievable.

Your Health Planet, not only it has left a stressful alignment, but, also, right now, it receives much support and no stress, while the ruler of your zodiac is in a beneficial alignment and in a good cooperation with Jupiter.

Hence, despite any difficulties, this fortnight has the potential of being a very good one for you. Your mood and your emotional condition need some support.

Nonetheless, the ruler of your zodiac, in Pisces, still receives some stress, so it’s advisable to act more cautiously.
