All the planets for this new moon are in the eastern hemisphere of the zodiac with at least one planet in five of the six signs. This is not too difficult to navigate, since there is some commonality of the influences, particularly in the fourth quadrant signs of Capricorn through Pisces. We tend to find our talents and emotional releases by helping others. With so many planets in Aquarius and Pisces, we tend to feel inspired to give more of ourselves rather than waiting for others to come to us. Some call this planetary layout a bowl chart involving six signs sequentially and no planets in the other six signs.
The new moon is forming a conjunction with Neptune and Venus in Pisces, which adds to our ability to express ourselves through our gifts and natural talents. The new moon is forming a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn, adding insight to our activities in ways we may not have ever considered in the past. There is a natural giving and receiving component to this new moon, on a spiritual and emotional level.
The Moon was Out of Bounds in the southern hemisphere starting March 6 and ended on March 9. It will be OOB again starting March 20 and ending March 24. As you can see, the OOB transit is lasting longer as the Moon moves farther out by declination. This last time, the Moon peaked at 25 deg. 9 min. OOB. The next time, the moon will peak at 25 deg. 18 min on March 22 before heading back to Hidek on March 24 for a few hours, then quickly heading south, back to the equator and southern hemisphere. The Moon's OOB transit always brings up some feelings of vulnerability in our lives. Thankfully, it's always just a few days and then we are back to normal Moon activities.
Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn are spaced out enough in Aquarius for each planet to present as unique characteristics during this new moon. They are not conjunct, but collectively, they are vibrating with similar intentions. Aquarius encourages us to bond with others who share similar beliefs. For each of us, that's a little different, but pertains to our interests, careers, or objectives. We may never become truly close with the individuals we feel drawn to, but that we seem to comprehend them, on an intellectual or intuitive level.
Mars in Gemini is forming a trine to Saturn in Aquarius. This can help us, if we are needing to start over with something. We are able to step back and reassess our situations to determine what we now need to do in order to start in a new direction. This could be career related, but it could also be relationship building. This new moon may be the first step to new opportunities.
Saturn is forming a square to Uranus in Taurus. This one can be tricky for us, as we may feel extremely insecure in our decisions. Try not to focus on the insecurity portion, and allow our hearts to open to the potentials. Don't be afraid to express some indecision. A final decision does not need to be made today for matters that will be formed over the next few weeks. Be open to the possibilities, or accept the fact that change is necessary in order to gain new options. Concrete decisions can wait until later.
What we are lacking in this chart are the planetary placements in the fire signs as well as the fact that there is only one planet in a cardinal sign. We may feel stuck, but really we are not. We can use this time to mull and reassess. The moon will be in Aries on Sunday, and that can kick-start our plans that we are contemplating during this new moon.
