March 13th brings a square from Saturn in Capricorn to Venus in Aries. Venus’ bold expressions of love, want and self-esteem will be restricted by Saturn’s rules. This aspect suggests you won’t get what you want (at least not right away) or extra work will be demanded if you want something. Either way, you'll probably feel unhappy or unattractive. But on the same day we have a hopeful trine from the Pisces Sun to Jupiter Rx in Scorpio. So here’s your help- Jupiter Rx’s shift in perspective/pause/narrowing of scope can bring benefits. The key will be moving with what’s unfolding naturally. If Saturn is blocking you, go where the current is flowing.
The Sun/Jupiter Rx trine is part of March 17th’s Pisces New Moon, which conjoins Wounded Healer Chiron. While Jupiter’s assistance (and path of least resistance) will help, a square from Mars in Sagittarius to this Moon will hurt (Mars makes an exact square to Chiron on March 14th). New beginnings won’t be entirely pleasant, as they will involve a weakness or wound. Anger or pushy actions will be the trigger. Whatever happens, know that resistance or trying to force a desired outcome will not work. Jupiter Rx’s trine encourages a step back or a deeper look, and you can uncover hidden benefits this way. Chiron in Pisces is about acceptance of the wound, then release. There may be a blow to the ego - Sun/Chiron in Pisces is the ultimate release of ego via an embrace of vulnerability.
However, even if victimization comes up during this New Moon, don’t think that you’re meant to give up. Mars enters Capricorn after the New Moon, so there’s an immediate shift as actions/initiatives get real. If Mars in Sagittarius was about agitating for an ideal/exploring, Mars in Capricorn is about working to make a desired outcome real. This is focused ambition, serious effort and manifestation via a climb to the top. Mars in Capricorn uses resistance to fuel progress. So whatever this New Moon brings, know that you’re encouraged to move onwards and upwards.
Although this New Moon occurs on March 17th, the immediate influence can extend from March 13th to March 18th (when the Sun/Chiron conjunction is exact).
