The New Moon on March 22 2012 is at 2º Aries 22’ conjunct Mercury retrograde on the sea monsters tail. Uranus also joins the party, by electrifying the whale’s tail. There has been an electrical watery theme going on while we still have a limp and languid Mars Retrograde. Seems that the universe really wants us to slosh about with mermaids and electrical goods then, which we know is not a great combination. With misty-eyed Neptune closing in on dreamy Fomalhaut it’s a similar vibe to the Slippery Eel New Moon a month ago.
The bonkers Uranus/Sun/Moon/Mercury stellium is semi-sextile Neptune. With all that we get divine madness, lots of Ophelia like eye-rolling and gazing into the lake. Mercury retrograde is spiralling back through Neptune’s mist and getting lost. We once again place ourselves in the hands of God/fate since we cannot do much else.
The Moon is conjunct Asteroid Atropos and Lacrimosa, which is all very tragic isn’t it? How interesting that the March 8 Full Moon two weeks ago was opposite Lachesis who was the 2nd of the fates. Atropos is the 3rd, the grim one and poisonous death witch . There is just such a strong theme of toxic liquids here. The grand trine of Mars/Pluto/Lilith continues from the last Full Moon, which was connected to the Lunar eclipse too. Threads within threads it’s all connected. Are we living in extra ordinary fated times? Is it just me or is synchronicity happening with more frequency? I must say I’m noticing it all the time now.
March 2012 New Moon Aspects
We have Moon conjunct Mercury to add to the confusion, this “can be very naughty or very nice”. I find it makes people good at spinning a yarn, great for actors and comedians but also “this might be a person who finds it hard to stick at anything and is given to fads. At worst this person can be a cheat and someone who you couldn’t trust as far as you could throw them.”
Then we also have Moon conjunct Uranus “These individuals come across as exciting, electric and quite chaotic unless they have more stabilizing factors in their chart. Both the Moon and Uranus are fluctuating and changeable, their emotions often change in a flash.” Well Mercury isn’t exactly famous for commitment and sticking around either, so this is a shifty moon on a wavy sea. I wouldn’t pin my hopes on anything to do with it!
Aries New Moon on Deneb Kaitos
The fixed star Deneb Kaitos is in the tail of Cetus the sea monster. For the Arabs it was known as the second frog, the first frog being that slippery mermaid Fomalhaut. So the two share that unfathomable mysticism. Cetus the constellation represents the great collective consciousness. But there’s no lovely hippie whale song from this creature I’m afraid. With the Moon Robson says it’s a“Pioneer, reckless, headstrong, violent temper, many quarrels.” And with the Sun as this is a New Moon we get “mental disturbances”. There are negative sides to being “connected” which is why so many people fear dipping into the psychic realm. We just don’t know what monster we are going to let into our psyche and that’s where the “mental disturbances” come into it.
New Moon on Asteroid Atropos
To cap it all we get a conjunction to poison potion-maker Atropos. I really don’t want to spread fear and negatively, so I will try to stress the positive ways one can use this very potent medicine. Because that’s what poison really is. For example if you need to get rid of vermin, sometimes, just sometimes, you have to use something really lethal to get the job done. If there are weeds in your life, now’s the time to nuke them. They wont grow back!
The synchronicities continue as this Moon is actually opposite Clotho, the first of the three Fates. (Remember the last Full Moon was opposite Lachesis) Clotho (Roman Nona, 9th) is the spinner of the thread of life on her spindle, Lachesis (Roman Decima, 10th) and then we get Atropos (Roman Morta, Death). Nine, Ten…Death! Something is coming to an end. Look at the nutty numerology. March 22 at 2º 22’ Aries. Would you believe the New moon is also conjunct Deneb Kaitos by 22’!
Back to the New Moon horoscope, so much in Aries. Northern spring. A fresh start. It’s just so darned cyclical. Endings and beginnings, Death and birth.. Draconic charts are drawn up putting the North Node at 0º Aries, these charts are supposed to show hidden spiritual truths. So there must be something special about this point. Retrograde Mercury is at 0º Aries right now. Which stresses again the breaking of karmic or toxic ties. This moon could drive us mad with despair and push us into to make dramatic exits. However, keep the faith, every ending contains the seed of a new era.
