On March 21, 2023, we will experience a new moon at 0 degrees of Aries. It will impact individuals with major planetary aspects between 25 degrees of Pisces and 5 degrees of Aries the most. But it will likewise influence individuals with planets in Leo, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Libra, and Cancer at the same degrees. New moon phases are great times to conduct intention rituals to plan and prepare for the months ahead.
This new moon phase will come at the hills of the spring equinox period. Therefore, both the sun and moon will join in the sign of Aries for this seasonal event. This energy will shine a spotlight on our identity, ego, and sense of leadership. Aries is bold, determined, spontaneous, and pioneering. Because we will enjoy a new moon phase during this period, we are sure to capture many of the positive aspects of Aries.
Our sense of independence will be a major theme since Aries will also be center stage while Ceres retrograde enters Virgo the next day. As such, we will be in the vibe of reconciling maternal trauma that may have caused us to shrink back in any way. Many will examine how their work ethics and sense of charity have led to co-dependent connections. This may lead some to plan, start, or shift business endeavors or other projects related to these dynamics.
Pluto in Aquarius
Pluto will likewise transition into Aquarius during this period, which means will be dealing with some type of death or rebirth experience. This energy will have a collective effect on the masses. And it will have revoluting and uprooting qualities. But this is only a preview of what’s to come over the next 20 years, starting in January 2024.

So, stay in tune with the universal flow.
First Quarter Moon in Cancer
The moon will likewise transition into the sign of Cancer as she debuts in her initial first-quarter cycle of 2023. This movement may see us all more aggressively connecting with our Divine Feminine energy. After the impact of Aries’s energy, we will all need some maternal nurturing and cleansing. And Cancer vibes will just be what the Cosmos ordered.
Mercury in Taurus
Finally, Mercury will enter into Taurus, which will spark thoughts and conversations related to romance, finance, health, and beauty. Our focus will begin to transition to the more material aspects of life at this time. This energy will be light-hearted and fun.
