The Virgo full moon on March 18, 2022, is trine Pluto. So the spiritual meaning of the full moon March 2022 astrology is a positive emotional transformation. Deep and more intense feelings can positively transform intimate relationships. Destiny encounters can lead to profound new karmic relationships.
The March 2022 full moon is also conjunct asteroid Aphrodite, the more hedonistic and sexually liberated counterpart of Venus. And Venus and Mars are still together to make intensely passionate sexual relations a major theme of this full moon.
Full Moon March 2022 Astrology
The March 18 full moon at 27°40′ Virgo makes aspects to Neptune, Pluto, and the lunar nodes. I will focus on the positive trine to Pluto because of the tightness of the orb, only half a degree. The challenging opposition to Neptune is not insignificant but simply much weaker than the Pluto aspect.
Of the other aspects, Venus conjunct Mars is waning now but still making people more passionate and lustfull. Both Venus and Mars are approaching a square to Uranus, adding tension, impulsiveness and unpredictability. This applies more to love relationships at with Venus square Uranus on March 19.
There are some fixed stars that affect the new moon March 2022 astrology. And to amplify the libido of Venus conjunct Mars, the full moon is conjunct asteroid Aphrodite.
Full Moon Meaning
Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
Full Moon Aspect
Full Moon trine Pluto increases your emotional sensitivity and psychic perception. This helps you access the deep, dark areas of your subconscious. You will feel things more powerfully and are likely to be transformed by your intense emotional reactions. Intimate relationships can also undergo a positive regeneration.
Your interactions with others will be more dramatic and profound than usual. Someone is likely to move you deeply and have a strong influence on your life. Intense emotional connections may result in new relationships. There would be a strong karmic pull between you and any destiny encounter.
You may come across as possessive or obsessive but your interest is likely to be welcomed by others. Subconscious communication is possible and this can even extend to sexual encounters. Your desire to experience things at a more extreme level may lead to an exploration of the darker side of life and taboo areas.
Full Moon March 2022 is at the end of Virgo Sign (27°). But as the star map below shows, it is actually at the beginning of Virgo Constellation. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago.
The closest major star to the full moon is Beta Virginis, a yellow star on the left side of the Head of the Maiden.
- 27♍00 – Labrum
- 27♍15 – Alkaid
- 27♍28 – Zavijava
- 27♍40 – Full Moon March 2022
- 28♍03 – Asteroid 1388 Aphrodite
- 29♍12 – Markeb
Fixed star Zavijava gives beneficence, force of character, strength, combative movements and destructiveness. It is of the nature of Mercury and Mars (exaggerative, argumentative, unreliable, unscrupulous, given to invective, mechanical ability, very quick mind, great talker.) 
Zavijava gives the ability to hold a position of command, but subject to a higher command, an intelligent director behind the action. It gives the intelligence and energy to be sent out and not need a higher authority to lead you all the time. It makes for a reliable worker, attentive to every detail of the job. Will make a good salesman, executive, manager, or subordinate commander, but need someone of higher rank to give the job. The idea conveyed by Zavijava is that of swearing loyalty to another, taking charge under them, and ’running the ship’ for them. 
Aphrodite is the ancient Greek goddess of love, lust, beauty, pleasure, passion and procreation. Her Roman counterpart is Venus. But according to Inanna B, Aphrodite’s influence is somewhat different:
Whereas Venus is sweet and affectionate, Aphrodite is hedonistic and free. She’s a beautiful, boy-crazy bohemian, confident, proud and utterly liberated by her heart-stopping sex appeal. She not only delights in attention from the opposite sex, but she thrives in it. Needs it. And men are more than willing to oblige in that need. Her powers of seduction are unparallelled due to her beauty, confidence, and forthright love of sex. She can be classically romantic, sure, but for her, the essence of romance lies not in hand-holding and sweet nothings, but in passionte, wild, hours-long sexcapades.
Aphrodite also has a darker side: a tendency towards laziness, vanity, self-indulgence, and a noncommittal attitude about relationships. Her placement in our charts shows us how we express that wild, feminine, hedonistic side of ourselves, as well as the kinds of women we pattern our own Divine Feminine nature after; women we idolize, attempt to emulate, or secretly wish we could be.

Full Moon March 2022 Summary
The strongest influence on the March 2022 full moon astrology is the trine to Pluto. This is a positive aspect that deepens and intensifies your feelings and makes you more intuitive. Being a full moon, this especially applies to intimate relationships.
Fixed star Zavijava has a strong, commanding, and forceful influence, much like the Pluto aspect. But it also gives kindness and charity. Its combative and destructive nature can hopefully be brought under control and channeled constructively by the harmonious trine to Pluto.
Sexual passion is a major theme of the March 18 full moon. Venus conjunct Mars is the ultimate aspect for passionate romantic relations. The full moon trine Pluto intensifies sex drive and asteroid Aphrodite seems to be just wild about sex.
The March 18 full moon lasts for two weeks up to the April 1 new moon. This waning moon phase is good for releasing and letting go, resting, healing, regenerating, contemplating, meditating, decluttering, harvesting, pruning and hair cutting.
