The March 2023 Full Moon of 17 Pisces - Virgo Pt. 1

The March 2023 Full Moon of 17 Pisces - Virgo Pt. 1

- The Power of Renewal and Release As We Demonstrate Integrity -

We have the Full Moon coming Tuesday which brings light and power to this year’s Pisces focus, with themes of forgiveness, release, integrity, and leaving the past behind.

This future-oriented, expansive, distributive, and vast feeling Full Moon occurs at 4:40 am PST, 12:40 pm GMT on March 7, and falls at the 17th degrees of Pisces and Virgo. Use the light of the closures you’ve begun and the gratitude you’ve practiced since the New Moon to see the renewal you need to do to break up old complexes. Self-purification to clean out the dross from our personalities is of paramount importance the next two weeks.

So what can we expect from this Lunation? Given the power of the recent eclipses, we’re still releasing many things in our Taurus and Scorpio sectors, and finding a deeper connection with Source. We are at the end of a long term test in wielding spiritual power wisely. The next two weeks offer us the understanding of renewal, release, and allowing what is pent up deep within to come up and out, hopefully without the explosion which usually accompanies such things. This is a time to anticipate the “call to renewal” we’re already hearing from distant sources, both without and within. Keep showing compassion and forgiveness when it’s time to shed the ghosts of the past.

With the Neptunian emphasis in this chart, it is important to be aware of our connections in the larger feeling-field, and demonstrate our willingness to purify ourselves. Jupiter is helping us to a different way of regarding the dance between the inner and the outer, the yang and the yin in our existence. As gratitude and integrity are two primary keywords for this period, be willing to embrace the healing and mentoring natural in this time of Jupiter conjunct Chiron.

This is another Full Moon focused on actional and material levels of functioning and awareness. We now move into a time of many things coming to surface, showing us both how we are fragmented and how we are whole. The next two weeks are a time to join with others in some form of renewal while leaving the past behind.

Today’s Full Moon post will be an overview of the Lunation and some of its primary qualities. In parts 2 and 3 we’ll cover the Sabian Symbols, aspects, distributions, and patterns.

An Overview

This Full Moon brings the Light of the Pisces New Moon involving “lifting ourselves to surer foundations” while avoiding unnecessarily aggressive people. The New Moon was specializing, and this Full Moon takes it to the next level by who we join with and what inner complexes we break up. This Lunation requires “education through action” and the need for discernment to figure out what fits where in the larger scheme of what’s leaving and what’s coming.

As with all Full Moons, use the light you’ve been seeing and expressing since the New Moon, and give it form and focus to see how to anchor those themes in expression. The New Moon’s themes were about getting closure and protection as old cycles end and new ones arrive. This continues our need to focus on our inner warmth as we remember the old answers cannot confirm the new conditions of existence.

This Full Moon shows Mercury again leading the Sun, thus becoming “the entry to the great Light.” That implies that “the Guide of Souls” on the degree where Saturn will go stationary retrograde this Summer is heralding the call to renewal we’ll have to hear then. As Mercury is totally unafflicted in this chart, learn to flow, intuit, bless, forgive, and finesse your way to a renewal. Refuse to play tricks, and be clear when deception is in the air.

Is the Sun Following the Moon, or the Moon Following the Sun?

This Lunation is the twentieth Full Moon where the Sun is in the same sign (Pisces) as it was in the New Moon two weeks ago. We are still in “the regular order” of the Sun/Moon relationship cycle, with both New Moon and Full Moon themes of acting to end some things and begin others which are more future oriented.

There are two patterns; one is when the Full Moon Sun is the same sign as the previous New Moon Sun, and the other is when the Full Moon Sun is in the next sign from the Sun in the previous New Moon. The Sun was in the same sign in both the New Moon and Full Moon, the so-called “natural” order, between April 2019 and August 2020. At the August 2020 Full Moon we entered the “reverse pattern” of the Sun of the Full Moon occupying the sign after the New Moon Sun, since the previous New Moon Sun was at 29 Cancer and that Full Moon Sun was at 12 Leo.

Since August 2021 brought us the New Moon Sun at 17 Leo and Full Moon Sun is at 30 Leo, we’ve been back in the natural order which will continue until the New Moon of April 19, 2023, which will be at 30 Aries, with the following Full Moon Sun at 15 Taurus. (That Full Moon is a Lunar eclipse). You can find out more about the “seed forms” of the New Moon two weeks ago by going to the archives.

Past As Prologue

The 2020-22 Eclipses moved us all in new directions, reorienting wherever we have Taurus, Cancer, Gemini, Scorpio, and Sagittarius in our charts. Remember that all Eclipses are “Cosmic recyclers,” taking away what is obsolete or de-magnetized in our lives. These losses clean out psychic and physical spaces so newer life substance can come forth. We’ve cleared out many old ideas, truths, habits, and perspectives the past 2 years, and now have a wider view regarding our life and the Life around us at the beginning of a new 20 year Aquarian era for humanity.

As you know from other articles, 2020 was the last year of a 200 year Earth era, with Air power building throughout the year which primed the pump for the 200 year Air era which began on the Solstice with Jupiter conjuncting Saturn at 1 Aquarius. However, we will still be “under the beams” of the powerful conjunctions in Capricorn, since between January and March 2020 we began new Saturn/Pluto, Jupiter/Pluto, Mars/Jupiter, Mars/Pluto, and Mars/Saturn cycles. The first of these launched a new 33 year era into motion.

Due to these conjunctions in late Capricorn and both Mars/Saturn and Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions at 1 Aquarius, we are in a long term period of finding wisdom by understanding transfiguration and enlightenment as verbs rather than nouns. We’ve now officially taken the first step into the coming Aquarian era. While this is not yet “The Age of Aquarius,” this is the final intensification of those energies which will sprout seeds in the second quarter of the century which will take us across the threshold of the Great Age soon after 2050.

Planetary Distribution

In this Full Moon, the span occupied by the inner planets (in this chart Mercury at 8 Pisces through Venus at 19 Aries) is 40+ degrees, a fairly wide span. This will be the primary area stimulated in our charts. At this time Mercury, the Sun, and Venus are in the heart of the outer planet span, making this the next in a series of Bucket Jones pattern Full Moons over the coming months.

Right now all the planets except the Moon occupy late Capricorn through late Gemini. As the inner planets have entered the outer planet span, all the planets except the Moon are in this span. This month the Moon adds a Virgo focus.

Because the occupied span runs 142+ degrees and the Moon is by itself in Virgo, we now have a “Bucket” Jones pattern. In this chart we have 2 oppositions made by the Moon to Sun and Neptune. In this “tensional awareness field,” the Moon is very strong, while all the other planets defer to their ruler Jupiter, which in in a chain of dispositors involving Jupiter, Mars, and Mercury, as described in the recent article on dispositors.

At this time we have the 10 traditional planets occupying 7 signs. Currently, the outer planet occupied span begins with Pluto in late Capricorn, then moves through Saturn in Aquarius, Neptune in late Pisces, Jupiter in mid Aries and finishes with Uranus in mid-Taurus. Since last August, Mars has extended the span into Gemini which continues through late March.

So What is a “Bucket” Jones Pattern and how does it work?

This is a Bucket Jones pattern, since the Moon is far enough away from the nearest planet to become a nozzle for the focus of all the other planetary energies. Since the “handle” of the Bucket involves the sign Virgo, that energy helps us focus the energies of all the other planets.

A “Bucket Pattern” is a type of planetary spread with all the planets in about half the signs with one outside that span wide enough to be a handle. The energies of the occupied half are focused through the “handle,” or “nozzle,” in this case Jupiter, termed the “focal determinator.” The handle, or focal determinator, represents the way to greater effectiveness, the cause to be embraced, the lack to be filled, or the way to use the total energies of this time in a focused manner.

Dr. Jones states “the Bucket type indicates a particular and rather uncompromising direction in the life effort.” This pattern gives “interest in a cause,” with executive tendencies that will adapt allegiances to maximize results of the effort. He says “the Bucket type at its best reveals the real instructor and inspirer of others, and at its worst the agitator and malcontent.” This is the larger planetary pattern within which we’re all trying to do what we do.

We are also told this pattern is more about finding an effective release for energy within social settings, but also about the individual imposing their patterns on society rather than adapting to what is there. It’s about focused intention. So all of us can expect some sort of focused attention on the house where we have 17 Virgo.

Pluto at 30 Capricorn is the leading planet on a degree of executive decisions as it prepares to enter Aquarius, where it will lead the occupied span for months to come. It is in the Virgo decan, adding more Mercury influence with an added Solar influence. This entry to the occupied part of the Bucket tells us to think about the seeds of things, as well as hidden potentials. With Mars at 22 Gemini as the closing planet to the span, embrace more healthy interactions, balance the emphasis between mind and body, personal and social interactions, and express your feelings in healthy interactive ways. This leads with individual and spiritual group performance and closes with emotional and social exteriorizations.

Is the Grand Irrationality A Factor in this Full Moon?

Because this section is so long, I decided to create an article which explains what it is, how long it’s been in effect, and which zones of the zodiac have been most impacted and when. You can find all you need to know about this configuration associated with widespread irrationality and hard-edged “forks in the road of destiny” we’ve all confronted at various times by going to The Grand Irrationality. As we’re at the very end of the long wave configuration, I’ll update the main article to sum up all that has happened to our world these past 29 years.

Any transit making multiple 7th harmonic aspects put this “7-pointed Star of Destiny” evolutionary configuration into play, bringing choices and changes affecting our future. The generic configuration is why things seem so crazy and hard-edged at this time in history, and why humanity seems to have been at an unending “fork in the road of destiny.” In this chart Uranus is in the heart of its last septile to Neptune, but there is no other planet in a septile series aspect to either of these spiritual heavyweights.

Obviously, this evolutionary configuration is activated throughout the year when a planet moves through any of the hot zones of the configuration. This configuration will next be triggered when the Sun and Mercury transits late Pisces and conjunct Neptune and septile Uranus. I’ll speak more about the aspects in part 3 when I cover the special configurations.

Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend

We now behold the end of the end of Saturn’s stay in its home sign of Aquarius. It’s taught us shortcuts to illumination, shown us the emergence of things we never dreamed before, and instructed us in the wise use of spiritual energies for many months, as well as the spiritual power of gratitude and appreciation. This is the final Lunation with Saturn in Aquarius, this one on a degree of illuminating the collective “field of Light/Life” in which we all find our existence. This is a goodbye to our collective transfiguration, with new lessons ahead when it enters Pisces.

Though Saturn is currently challenged in its opening phase with Jupiter, it’s on the way to some very favorable aspects with the other planets, bringing growth and stability in our early Water sign sectors. We now have a radically different understanding of many things than we did even a few months ago. The next two weeks will show us what sector of the Light field we’re a part of, so take a look around at your spirit friends.

Saturn, ruler of our Capricorn and Aquarius sectors and any natal or progressed planets we have in those signs, is now on the move into our Pisces sector. Though Saturn can feel heavy and bring heavy life lessons, it also in the part of us which can take charge of our lives and destiny by using Saturn’s virtues in the right way and time. Our ability to steer our “ship of personality” into its rightful “role of destiny” has brought us to the threshold of new parts to play on the stage of Life.

We’re now entering a productive period of Jupiter in Aries and Taurus making favorable aspects to Saturn over the next few months. The friction between Saturn and Uranus in 2021-2022 showed us what mattered to us and what didn’t, with our transformation into the roles we’re to play determined by how we’ve trained. Uranus awakened us to new roles to play, while Saturn brought new mutations and an accelerated evolution which are part of us learning to use spiritual power effectively through deliberation rather than instinct.

I explain how Saturn and Uranus work together to awaken us to our Higher Powers to take command of our destiny in my book Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend. Saturn helps us give form and structure to our quest for Self-realization; in Capricorn, it teaches us how to accept and use personal power within a socially responsible context, while in Aquarius it teaches us how to make a greater contribution to our civilization and come together with others in a great effort “ensouled by a great vision.” Coupled with Uranus having awakened us to the fact that the old answers aren’t enough along with the need to accept spiritual power to shape our world, we are collectively “breaking on through to the other side” into an unfolding Higher awareness.

The book was written for both astrologers and non-astrologers. Even those with little or no understanding of astrology will benefit from understanding why you had to make certain choices at crucial times that shaped your life in profound ways.

Each time you read any section of this book you will find new insights about your power to throw off all the attitudes and memories which hold you back from finding and living the life and purpose. If you’ve haven’t already gotten your copy, you can go to the Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend page on Amazon and this should be all you need to order your copy. It’s also available on Amazon and as an ebook on Kindle, so if that’s more to your liking, go for it! If you would, whether you’ve gotten the ebook or the paperback, please write a review on the Amazon site, since the more reviews, the more of a boost they give it.

On A Final Note

See you in the near future with parts two and three on this Full Moon which will offer us opportunities for renewal, self-purification, release and restoration of our wholeness. This is a fluid Full Moon which activates growth in our Virgo and Pisces life areas. Our past dreams are now taking shape and this month brings us to a point of release and social rebirth.

Because Venus is a key player due to being in a several week sextile with Mars, it can help us to productive relationships and a “strife transcending, unattached perspective” on the normal “reality” of our time. Again, when you find the old answers aren’t working, refocus your potential in new actions which detach you from the traps of perception.

Venus was the first inner planet to conjunct Saturn this year. That began a new cycle of forward-looking relationships for us all. Saturn was in the emotional/social level of management, bringing that quality to Venus’ 2023 Aquarian lessons. She recently conjuncted Jupiter on a degree of the stirring up of a new perspective, and is en route to conjuncting Uranus in just a few weeks.

If you want to know more about your Venusian power to shape your relationships into enjoyable interactions and friendships, please consider getting a copy of my newest book The Magic of Venus: Friendships, Soul Mates, and Twin Flames. It is the most comprehensive book on Venus ever written, and explains why we attract who we do and how to create more satisfying relationships in the future. You will understand the foundations of long term healthy relationships and friendships, why Soul Mates come into our lives, and how to dance with your inner Beloved and mirror that to your world.

Since 2019, we’ve all seen greater truths and taken on new roles and responsibilities which led us to new social effectiveness in 2021-22. Where we have late Capricorn and early Aquarius in our chart is the focus of coming years. The compressions in Capricorn led us to forms of personal power and very long wave cycles showing our work for a long time to come. We finished the 2022 Aquarius compression in March, creating cycles of learning how to manage our responsibility to become better educated to fulfill a greater role in the long wave Aquarian energy.

We’ve entered a new chapter in our spiritual journey at a fork in the road of our collective destiny. 2020 was about forging our connection with the World Soul, our Wisdom, and our greater dedication. 2021 began the new era in our lives. We’re all wiser than we used to be, have been given ample opportunities to value our heart connections with our friends, and display the vaster spiritual awareness we share with our Brothers and Sisters.

2022 brought us training and skill, divine mutations, endings and beginnings. 2023 began with one last look back before the rapid acceleration now happening. We’re on the edge of radical change these next few weeks, so see the big picture and move into your future!

I’ll see you soon when we’ll discuss Sabian Symbols, evolutionary configurations, and other important chart factors.
