The March 2024 Lunar Eclipse Full Moon of 6 Aries-Libra Pt. 1

The March 2024 Lunar Eclipse Full Moon of 6 Aries-Libra Pt. 1

- New Facets of Life and New Goals in Mind -

The Full Moon of Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra is the first “High Moon” of 2024 and brings a renewal of life and a need to search for our heart’s desire as old ways of doing our Being slip away.

As a result of the new dedication we’ve embraced, this eclipse will bring sharp and quick insights, a need to “lift ourselves to surer foundations,” and many echoes of memories. This is simultaneously a closing and an opening.

This initiating, dynamic, “weighing and judging” Penumbral Lunar eclipse Full Moon occurs at 12 am PDT, 8 am BST on March 25, and falls at the 6th degree of Libra and Aries. This keeps the focus on the emotional and social levels of life, and offers us a way to choose what we want to display to our world which may require precise visualization of what our ideals really are.

We’ve said goodbye to many things these past weeks, and with four planets in Pisces, there’s definitely going to be vast and maybe confused feelings. Just remember that with both Venus, Mars, and Saturn in Pisces, it’s truly the end of the end of some things. Continuing the theme that proceeds at each Full Moon as they move through each polarity, this one reorients the “Light of our Life” from the past of Pisces to the NOW of Aries! This one moves us out of feelings and into the inspiration of fire, where we will find what’s relevant to us (maybe through what’s taken away these next 4+ months.)

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

As with all Full Moons, use the light you’ve been seeing and expressing since the New Moon, and give it form and focus through anchoring those themes in expression. This Full Moon/Lunar eclipse brings the Light of the Pisces New Moon theme into a realization that as we encounter the future in the moment we can demonstrated the light of the “kinesthetic/tactile awareness” we’ve been feeling the past two weeks. This has been a time to flow into the future and let go of clinging to much of anything.

Having learned that old answers can’t solve the new questions, and old approaches won’t get the job done, this Lunar eclipse has Jupiter on the exact degree where it went stationary retrograde last September. That guarantees some of what will be removed is directly related to those old approaches and old questions. I suspect many old plans won’t turn out as expected, and old assumptions will be rudely interrupted.

Because of so much Pisces, while this Full Moon eclipse is in play, we’ll still be navigating deep insights about subconscious or unconscious factors in self and others. Look for the motive behind what is said or done. This will be good for intuitive flashes and empathic insights. The eclipse will help us shed a lot of ghosts from the past if we allow it.

This is an intensely mobilizing Full Moon, with Pluto still leading the occupied span and continuing to occupy a degree of “spectacular developments” via “cosmic visitations” which will “galvanize us to action” to deal with a challenge of some sort. As all the planets except the Moon are in a very narrow span, it shows a lot of activity in a small area focused through the Moon in Libra, which will 1) bring us the results of previously visualized ideals, or 2) a realization that we need to be more precise in our visualizations if we want to see them made manifest. I’ll explain in the next part with the Sabian symbols.

This Full Moon brings the Light of a new individual action on the emotional or social levels or both. This is an intensely mobilizing eclipse which will help many to turn away from bondage to old social forms will accompany a “conflict between old and new perspectives,” so be “willing to face chaos for the sake of a new order.” Feelings will run high over the next 2 weeks and 4+ months, with things removed so that new life can present itself.

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

This Lunation is the eleventh Full Moon where the Sun is in a different sign (Aries) than it was in the Pisces New Moon two weeks ago. We are now into “the reverse order” of the Sun/Moon relationship cycle, as the Light of the New Moon is in a different sign than the Light of the Full Moon.

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.

August 2021 brought us the New Moon Sun at 17 Leo and Full Moon Sun is at 30 Leo, beginning a new “natural order” sequence which continued through the New Moon of late March 2023 at 1 Aries which was followed by the Full Moon at 17 Aries/Libra. This shifted back into the “reverse order” sequence in April 2023 with a New Moon at 30 Aries followed by the Wesak Festival Full Moon Sun at 15 Taurus. You can find out more about the “seed forms” of the Pisces 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. All Eclipses are “Cosmic recyclers,” removing what is obsolete in our lives. These losses clean out psychic and physical spaces so we can find new life substance. Due to what we’ve eliminated the past 2 years we now have a wider view of our life and the Life around us as humanity begins a new 20 year Aquarian era.

As you know from other articles, 2020 was the last year of a 200 year Earth era, with Air power building that year launching a 200 year Air era on the December 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, as well as several very important conjunctions since then at the same degree, 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. And to note, there will be plenty of people and ideas from the Age of Pisces which will continue into the next century as part of the bridging process from past to future as humanity discovers new Aquarian ideas and sheds old Piscean ones.

Planetary Distribution

At this Full Moon, the inner planets are all inside the occupied outer planet span. We now have all the planets except the Moon in a very narrow span between Uranus and Pluto. This is 108+ degrees and is the last great compression of planets for centuries to come.

Because the Moon is outside the span occupied by all the other planets, in this chart we have two open spans created by the Moon’s distance from all the other planets. The span occupied by the inner planets (in this chart Mars at 2 Pisces through the Sun at 6 Aries) is 33+ degrees, a very narrow span. This will be the primary area stimulated in our charts.

At this time because all the inner planets have finished their conjunction with Pluto and are closing in to their conjunctions with Saturn and Neptune, we’re definitely in the heart of a run of Bundle Jones patterns when the Moon is between Capricorn through Gemini which will continue through the first half of June. That also means when the Moon is in the last half of Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, and early Scorpio the Moon creates a Bucket pattern. This continues the run of Full Moon Bucket Jones patterns

Right now all the planets are spread out across 5 signs. This month the Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra open a “nozzle” for the expression of the other planetary energies. With all the planets between Aquarius and Taurus and the Moon 134+ degrees from Uranus and 116+ degrees from Pluto we now have everything in a cluster with only the Moon at the far side of the occupied span. This creates a “Bucket” chart pattern, with the Moon as the “handle,” or nozzle.

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

A “Bucket Pattern” is a 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 the Moon, 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. The Moon is how we're going to "get a handle on things," or focus the potential of the rest of the planets, so if you have any doubt, express Libra!

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 6 Leo.

Pluto at 2 Aquarius leads the occupied span for months to come. This indicates that the “cosmic visitations” Saturn brought us all in 2020 are now going to be present in Plutonic form over the next few weeks (and 4+ months). This entry to the occupied part of the Bucket tells us to think about the seeds of things, as well as hidden potentials.

This entry to the occupied part of the Bucket tells us to take a deep and broad view of seed energies at work right now, whether for building or destroying. With Uranus at 21 Taurus as the closing planet to the span, we’ll close experience in a search for the relevance of whatever we’re thinking or seeing, and/or an “awakening to spiritual discrimination” and “getting to the heart of any matter.”

Memories could unexpected arise at the end of actions. It’ll be good these next 20 weeks to ask yourself “What is the meaning of this to me?” This leads with actional and material Contribution and closes with emotional and social Confirmations which should show us greater ways to enjoy life on our own terms.

Is the Grand Irrationality A Factor in this Full Moon?

No, and blessedly, will never be a factor activating the collective for the rest of our lives. This was a 30 year phenomenon which has now passed out of orb, and we are finally back to Neptune sextile Pluto and the coming Uranus sextile Neptune and trine Pluto. The spiritual field has shifted for the better!

If you want to know more about this hard edged Special Evolutionary configuration in play for three decades, I created an article which sums up the three versions of the Grand Irrationality in play during those years. I discuss what it is 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 is Over (1993-2023).

This evolutionary configuration has been activated over the years when any planet moved through any of the hot zones of the configuration. However, even though it’s ended remember that almost everyone on Earth born the past 30 years has this in their charts! And all the eclipses these past years have also had it, including the April and May eclipses. So we’ll still have it working in the background for years to come. I’ll speak more about the aspects in part 3 when I cover the special configurations.

Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend

We are now solidly in the long voyage of Saturn’s transit of Pisces. While in Aquarius 2021-2022 it taught us shortcuts to illumination 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 a time of learning lessons of compassion and forgiveness shown by Pisces, following through on the life renewal we’ve attained since June 2023.

Saturn, ruler of our Capricorn and Aquarius sectors and any natal or progressed planets we have in those signs, is now accelerating in speed, moving forward through its shadow zone. It is now at 13 Pisces, the same degree where Venus made Her conjunction a few days ago. Given the recent Equinox also had Saturn at this degree, clearly the themes of 13 Pisces will be strong for the next two weeks and 4+ months.

At this time Saturn has no frictional aspects, so take heart, show courage, focus your will power, and your efforts will be known. We’re now headed for “our feast at the end of our day of labor” coming this Summer, so keep using Saturn’s productivity to flow into spiritual growth through “feeling-knowing.”

Though Saturn can feel heavy and bring serious life lessons, it is 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’ve been in a long productive period of favorable Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus aspects which are finishing now that the inner planets are moving through Pisces. However, Saturn will make favorable aspects to Uranus for many months to come, helping us blend understanding with originality, awakening to our ability to become conscious in how we use spiritual power.

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 greater awareness and effectiveness. In recent years we learned to accept and use personal power so we could make a greater contribution to our world. Coupled with Uranus having awakened us to the fact that it’s already a new time, a new way, and a new day, we’re “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 Lunar Eclipse Full Moon which will awaken us to turn away from something and turn toward another thing more in line with our heart. This will shut down some part of our personality we’ve been showing to our world so another one can be seen. This will express either as seeing the results of a long held vision, or the need to think anew. With Jupiter ruling the planets in Pisces and in a mutual reception with Venus, leave old ways behind and participate in a public renewal of some sort.

The outer planets maintain the entry into a transition between the old spiritual field and the emergent one, so practice empathy, compassion, intuition, and release all which obstructs your ability to swim in the ocean of collective consciousness. Those who have prepared will reap rewards and opportunities which will make 2024 enjoyable. Just keep in mind we’re all challenged to navigate the larger field disturbances coming in the Spring with Saturn semisquare Pluto and the Summer with even more friction.

Venus is a key player at present due to being in Mutual Reception with Jupiter with both of them ruling all the other planets except Neptune. Venus is very strong in Pisces, very compassionate and forgiving, so make the most of this time to feel a deeper union with self, others, and Source. Intuition and magnetism are high, so those who have prepared for the harvest will find forms of abundance.

If you want to know more about your Venusian power to shape your likes and affections into enjoyable interactions and friendships, please consider getting a copy of my 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.

And now, a bit of final backstory to where we are today.

A View of How We Got Here

Where we have late Capricorn and early Aquarius in our chart is the focus of coming years due to a tremendous number of important conjunctions there in 2020 and 2021. The compressions in Capricorn led us to personal power and very long wave cycles showing our work for years to come. The March 2022 Aquarius compression created cycles of learning how 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 that’s been happening the past 11 months. We now move into the next phase as Saturn is solidly in its Shadow Zone and Jupiter is about to leave its Shadow Zone. Mercury will bring concentrated doses of spiritual energy as we move toward different ideals in some life area.

See you soon with parts two and three on this Full Moon which will bring us to a new sense of ourselves and what we want to express in our world. We’re now accelerating the pace in the new land, the new life, the new understanding, with a new sense of purpose.

Next up, Sabian Symbols, evolutionary configurations, and other important chart factors.
