On March 2, 2022, at 5.35pm, GMT, there is a New Moon taking place in the romantic and dreamy sign of Pisces. Like any New Moon, this one too calls for us to make a fresh start in that area of one's horoscope where it happens to fall. Due to the sign’s nature, this fresh start may be related to the need for romance, relaxation and escape from everyday life, as well as the need for contacting God or touching an ideal or dream. The fact that the New Moon takes place in close conjunction with Jupiter foretells that this new beginning is also characterized by the need for development and expansion that allows renewal and more freedom (sextile with Uranus). Moreover, thanks to the Mercury-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius with each other, one can fully dedicate their mind to this purpose.
A long journey away from daily routines, a romantic renewal of vows between a couple, as well as the renewal of faith in God and deeper contact with Him through prayer, meditation, confession or search for a spiritual teacher, are just some of the possibilities that the New Moon offers. After all, the fact that all the planets are now direct and that Mercury and Venus have been released from their shadow periods reveals the urgency to move on at ‘full speed’ and to embrace the new under this New Moon.
However, the semisquares that the New Moon receives from the triple conjunction between Venus-Mars-Pluto talk about some minor, albeit, objective or material obstacles that we are called to overcome so that the new beginning also becomes the vehicle for profound transformation within relationships and collaborations. Additionally, the degree where this triple conjunction takes place is Mars’ pure exaltation. This entails great amounts of tension and overexertion or an almost unlimited appetite for action so that the transformation mentioned above takes place. One can interpret this in various ways: new relationships that start with great urgency; existing relationships that manage to work on and purge the ills of the past; but also broken relationships that urgently reach their end. Externally, the belligerence and urgency of this triple conjunction is reflected in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which unfortunately may take on wider dimensions through the year. Will you, therefore, choose to make love or war?
