New Moon in Aries
The New Moon is at 2 degrees Aries 22 minutes on March 22, 2012.
At the New Moon, the Sun and Moon will be at 2 degrees Aries, with Mercury Retrograde at 0 Aries 51 and Uranus at 4 Aries 23. This puts the New Moon not only
conjunct Mercury and Uranus — it puts the New Moon at the Mercury/Uranus midpoint, making it even more compelling force for CHANGE — until you look for ruler Mars, still Retrograde in Virgo. Despite considerable bravado, nothing much happens.
Briefly as possible, here’s why. With a stellium of planets in early Aries, the ruler of Aries — Mars — is highly focused laser-beam Aries energy, ready to cut through anything. Yet, ruler Mars is Retrograde in Virgo — this week can be like an alarm clock with a SNOOZE button — taking a bold stand can be courageous -=- but it can also be a slippery step that sets you back. The energy may not support the strong need for instant immediate ACTION. Without patience, frustation is possible, but not productive. Heated words and (social) media coverage can reverberate — at least till mid April — when Mars stations Direct and Mercury moves out of Pisces — and everyone moves on.
