Lunar Eclipse march in Libra Decan 1

The fixed star interpretations are not kind to this decan, but the Moon rules it using the Chaldean system so that the powerful Moon may cancel the wicked stars out! Writing about controversial topics brings trouble. Those touched by this full moon solar eclipse will feel their ideas are way ahead of their time or just too mystical for the average human to grasp. This decan is also extremely right-brained, and since the Moon shines the light of illumination here, the intuitive sense is very sharp. In my research, I found many mystics born with the Moon in this decan.

This new Moon favours diplomats and peacemakers rather than war-mongers. The Moon here also strongly connects with the night sky and the ability to prophecy. Those plugged into this Libra moon will carry an aura of peace and tranquillity, even if their outer appearance is spiky or dishevelled. They are also able to neutralise a fiery environment just by being present. 

Moon Libra 1 carries a very potent balancing energy. If the situation contains too much surrender, it could shift the scales towards a more defensive stance. Surprisingly, There is the potential to flip over to being more of a shadow goddess. The shady manifestation is rare; Moon Libra 1 is generally soothing and harmonious. At this time, the collective’s only fault is being too naive and ignorant of malice. Those touched by this Libra new moon must remember that not everyone is as fair-minded as they are!

Lunar Eclipse Fixed Star


Zaniah 4º is found in the left arm of the Virgin: “It gives refinement, honour, congeniality, order and a lovable nature.” Generally, it seems to give a talent for negotiating peace and diplomacy. You can undoubtedly see strong tropical Libra attributes here and the Mercury/Venus nature attributed to it by Ptolemy. Eric Morse notes,” The name must bring a smile to astrologers who often associate Mercury with money and Venus with love. Ptolemy having put the money first for Zaniyah means “Adulteress” o“Harlot”. We have seen how Virgo has had such a reputation in past times, having been Lilith and Ashtoreth as much as more honoured ladies like Mary.” I think the influence has bled into tropical Libra now; one thinks of the refined and cultured Geisha girl or the 18th-century courtesan as very Libra decan 1. In fact, in my research, I found there were quite a few sex workers with this star.

Lunar Eclipse Tarot Card

The Tarot card associated with this decan is the two swords, which “often indicates arguments between people who are being rigid and unyielding. Both sides are locked into the battle. There is little room for forgiveness and no sign of a thaw. This argument could go on for years and taint generations to come unless someone is brave enough to sort it out. People need to lay down their weapons and open their hearts to forgiveness.” ~ teachmetarot. Karmically, this card shows the polarity of Aries to Libra, where Libra is the ‘other’. Balancing the scales indicates finding a compromise in this lifetime to extremism in the past…

Worm Moon Meaning

The March Full moon is christened “Worm Moon” by the native Americans. The name “worm moon” is linked to the arrival of earthworms in the soil during March in certain regions. As the ground begins to thaw after winter, earthworms become more active, and this activity is often associated with the start of spring. Other names for the March full moon from other cultures include the “sap moon” (referring to the sap flowing in maple trees) and the “crow moon” (indicating the cawing of crows as they search for food).

The Worm Moon is a period marked by thawing ground as the frozen Earth yields, and worms stir and wriggle beneath the surface. The essence of this moment revolves around emerging from the dormant, frozen state of winter and embracing a shift. Full moons typically prompt reflection and release. We might sense a thawing within ourselves—new vitality, fresh ideas, or resurfacing emotions are addressed. As the name suggests, you’ll need to engage in some hands-on, down-to-earth exploration to connect with the energy of March’s full Worm Moon. Get your hands muddy, start pulling out weeds or plant your feet right into Mother Earth herself if she is warm!

Lunar Eclipse March Astrology

The Eclipse has a wide trine to Pluto which has freshly entered Aquarius. The Moon trine Pluto in the sky is a surprisingly obsessive energy. It is easy to become bewitched by very dark people on this day. This particularly bitter-sweet combination could leave you with a nasty aftertaste once the romance has soured.

Even though the trine is a soft aspect I would still be very wary of any supernatural/soul mate connections you think you have made at this time. This aspect is hugely seductive and manipulative. But it can be used as a honey trap if you want to go undercover and investigate corruption for the greater good!

The chart has an interesting minor grand trine with Venus, the Goddess of love connected by sextile to Uranus and Ceres on the other side. Ceres and Uranus have opposite energies; Ceres is very earthy and resonates with Gaia, Mother Earth. In contrast, Uranus is the sky god and more of an air sign energy. Venus unites these opposites, bringing heaven down to the material plain. Although the Moon is in Libra, a definite Virgo, divine feminine energy presides over this Lunar eclipse.

Virgo is an earth sign connected to the fixed star Zaniah and Ceres, the grain goddess since Virgo’s constellation in the sky holds a sprig of wheat. Within the grain lies the brilliantly fertile fixed star Spica, a promise of the abundance to come with the harvest later in the year. Ceres has a much more committed, maternal energy than flighty Venus. Love needs to be grounded, with a solid foundation to bear fruit.

Lunar Eclipse March 2024 Summary

This Eclipse is all about thawing emotions. Suppose you have frozen away from others; it’s time to reach out and accept love again. You are WORTHY of love; don’t be an ice queen or king and, instead, show your vulnerability. This Eclipse is best for getting the right balance in your relationships with other people. Do you need to set solid boundaries due to energy loss from narcissistic vamps? Or is it the opposite, where you are like a stone castle with a mile-wide moat around it? Are you so defensive you are not letting anyone in at all? Libra is a sign of relationships, but it can also abuse its charm and use seduction to manipulate others. It might be time to let go of someone you feel has got you ‘charmed’ and will never commit.

The Libra/Virgo archetype personifies all the combined forces in this Eclipse; 1)The minor grand trine with Venus, Uranus and Ceres. 2) The supposedly ‘harlot’ star Zaniah and 3) The argumentative two of swords card. The Eclipse falls across the Aries/Libra axis, which is all about self v others and independence versus compromise in relationships. Aries wants the sex but not the commitment. So, we must learn that we can’t have it all at this Eclipse. Having a beautiful Libra face and body will attract loads of attention very quickly. However, relying on looks to create interest can also pull in partners who only want shallow relationships.

On the other hand, this Eclipse could be perfect for casting glamour spells! Unfortunately, social media trains us to have short attention spans (Uranus). Less community life in this atomised world forces us to go online to find love. We compete with a million cat-fishing Venusians out there. Like a listing on Etsy or any online marketplace, the first image has to be clickbait. Maybe there must be a bit of “glamorising” magic to get in the running, which IS deceptive. However, if you don’t play, you don’t win. This March Lunar Eclipse can be fun if you want, but make sure you get the balance right. Keep your eyes wide open; watch out for the players and the red flags. Go on some dates, if only to get the earth thawed and moving again!

Lunar Eclipse Healing Crystal ~ Rose Quartz

What other crystal could I choose for this Libra eclipse than the famous love crystal, Rose quartz? Legend has it that Cupid, the Roman god of desire, and Eros, the Greek god of love, bestowed the gift of love upon humans in the guise of Rose Quartz. (Eros was Venus’s close companion; some say her son)

This Lunar Eclipse has an intense relationship theme, so this is an ideal time to let go of a karmic romantic commitment or even a trauma bond (Moon trine Pluto). You must handle this kindly so the two of you can move on and make new, more nurturing partnerships and not end up with any residual negative karma. Moreover, there is also a need to renew our trust in love and the kindness of human nature.

With its gentle pink essence, Rose Quartz is a stone of the heart and unconditional love. This compassionate and peaceful stone brings tenderness and healing into your life. In addition to being nourishing and comforting, rose quartz speaks directly to the Heart Chakra. It is the best crystal for dissolving emotional wounds, fears, and resentments. As a result, one can achieve a deep sense of fulfilment and contentment, allowing one to give and receive genuine and honest love.
