New Moon in Aries
March 22, 2012
by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP
studying the horoscopes of nations and large communities,
New Moon charts take a step behind solar ingress charts.
The entry of the Sun into the four cardinal signs
of the zodiac - namely Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn
- is by far more significant. And of those four,
the Aries Ingress chart is considered to be the most
important by many astrologers. A
horoscope for the Vernal Equinox - when the Sun enters
the zodiac sign of Aries - is thought to be the foundation
for all predictions during the year for that particular
There is some disagreement to that however. Kaye
Shinker states in The
Textbook for Financial Astrology, Book IV,
that for financial and business astrology, the Capricorn
Ingress is what sets the stage for the coming year,
and is most important.
In any case, the entry of the Sun into the four cardinal
signs of the zodiac is very important indeed, as each
of them give us a broad overview of what to expect
in the seasonal months following each cardinal ingress.

A reality fix.
The move out of Pisces and into Aries is strong. This
energy brings to mind the line from the movie Moonstruck,
where Cher slaps Nicolas Cage saying, "Snap out
Snap out of it, indeed! Aries, ruled by Mars,
is strong, assertive and aggressive, and acts very
differently from a dreamy, all-inclusive, Make-Love-Not-War
Piscean. This is a wake up call into reality.
The Sun is exalted in Aries and is ruled by
Mars energetically acting on his own behalf.
The New Moon conjunct Mercury and Uranus in
the 11th house
So, here we have a New Moon chart at 2 degrees Aries,
Mercury at 0 Aries, and Uranus at 4 Aries. Zero
degrees Aries is the Aries Point, considered an intensely
strong degree. All these planets are conjunct
the Aries Point, bringing a rush of cardinal energetic
energy strongly to the forefront in this horoscope.
This is a hyper-active New Moon. This energetic
stellium, four planets in the 11th house, increase
volume in the market, and trading activity in sectors
ruled by Aries may be frenetic. Markets
will over-react to sudden surprising news, and with
Mercury Retrograde the information may be inaccurate
or have to be revised.
Randall Ashbourne states in his article,
Using Daily Aspect Calendars to Time Intraday Trades,
"The moon's effect in Aries is aggressive and
the Moon travelling in Aries can start a move in a
direction likely to last for a couple of days. Since
Uranus is now in Aries, the Moon and Uranus will be
in the same section of the sky, a conjunction, and
the action is likely to be both sudden and surprising."
Planets in the eleventh house have investors focusing
their attention on dividends, bonuses and earnings
from investments. (From the Textbook
for Financial Astrology, IV)
Earnings should meet or do better than expectations.
Mercury continues it's retrograde movement from Aries,
re-entering Pisces resulting in a mutual reception
with Mars in Virgo. Planets in mutual reception
have a stronger, more intense relationship with each
other. They work together extremely well, behaving
themselves like honored guests in each other's houses.
What to expect with this mutual reception? Well,
Mercury in Pisces is in detriment - because it is
in the sign opposite its sign of natural rulership
- and is at a disadvantage. With Mars in Virgo
however, Mercury's energy will sharpen up, and communication
should be a bit more focused. Mars in Virgo
however, gets the most benefit from this mutual reception,
but still the energy can be impulsive and very passive-aggressive
- and inaccurate! - due to the retrograde. We
will see a lot of pickiness and pettiness being reported
by the media.
Venus and Jupiter conjunct in Taurus in the
Venus in Taurus can hardly be any happier! This
is her own sign and she is in heaven in the 12th house,
as Jupiter affectionately dotes. Jupiter brings
an abundance of all things Venus in Taurus adores
– money and material possessions. This conjunction
trine Mars and Pluto is indicative of the financial
sector doing well, as well as luxury retail and material
goods. Heath care is the topic of discussion.
Mars in the 4th in opposition to Neptune the
Mars is retrograde, and the market is running on it's
last leg. The general public is very concerned and
wants to see continued strength. Mars in Virgo
demands that corporations and government clean up
Mars in the 4th house is unfortunate for real estate.
The housing market will struggle.
in New York should be very wet!
FYI - Mars went retrograde January
23, and will stay Rx until April 13.
I stated in my last newsletter, during Mars
Rx there is a good chance you will lose any type of
battle you may initiate. However, life does continue
on during Mars Rx, albeit without the proper energy
at one's disposal, so do yourself a big favor and
summon up all your patience – do not force issues,
and use this time period for rest. Resting up will
give you a reserve of energy that you can use to your
benefit when Mars goes direct!
not a good time to start up a new business unless
the business idea will help people conserve electricity,
sell labor saving devises, or offer items that help
people relax, take it easy, and enjoy life.
is retrograde in 5th house
The house where Saturn falls in a New Moon chart is
where you expect limitations to be set. With Saturn
in the 5th, speculators become a bit more fearful.
Investors begin to pull their money from equities
looking for safe havens.
Pluto in the 8th house in trine to Venus-Jupiter
Much political discussion about taxes worries investors.
Financial stocks will continue to be strong
with Pluto in the 8th and Jupiter and Venus in Taurus.
Neptune in the 10th house opposing Mars
There is a lack of initiative among corporate
leaders and executives, however, opportunities abound
for those behind the scenes and producing creative
material. Energy stocks continue to do well.
