The New Moon March 27 2017 falls in Aries Decan 1. This means everything feels fresh, new, shiny and bouncy. It all looks very tempting. But Venus is retrograde! So ‘To boldly retreat’ might be this New Moon’s motto, especially in relationships. Though some impulsive souls still could jump first and think later, this is why we could see many scandals, accidents and rash decisions in the news around this time. Ones that may be regretted later.
New Moon on March 27 2017 at 7º Aries Decan 1. Aspects: Conjunct Venus. Fixed star: Alpha Reticulum in the Star Measurer.
Although the Moon has no special dignity here, the gutsy stars help this New Moon do extremely well all the same. This period is great for the lone entrepreneur who woks tactically. Here the Moon does not lean on others emotionally and is not afraid of working solo. Those touched by this Aries New Moon are also not moulded by what is popular or what loved ones expect of them. It is a time of inventions, some that are controversial, but others fantastically unique due to not being influenced by the mainstream.
Austin Coppock says Moon in Aries decan 1 develops emotional self-reliance but has “a difficult time creating and maintaining emotional relationships with others, especially those relations which place the natives in a position of vulnerability.”  This may be the reason for success here, since we can become married to our work. We are so emotionally connected with our mission that we make passionate fighters for our cause whatever it may be. This is a time for activists and those who are willing to be heroes for their family or greater tribe. In the wider world there will be those who act quite ruthlessly in order to preserve the integrity and independence of their homeland.
Moon Conjunct Venus Retrograde
It looks like a mission and higher calling could be put before love in the early stages of this Venus Retrograde. You can see there is a bit of a tug-of-war going on between a packed sign of Aries and against Jupiter all on its own trying to lay down the law. Or could this be the Abrahamic religions v the so called ‘infidels’? Aries can represent the horned pagan god, so this symbolism is interesting in view of the state of the world!
