And So It Begins: Astrology Forecast March 19th – 26th

March 20th, 2023

By Lorna Bevan

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

This is a week for the memory books. A fiery New Moon at the Aries Equinox exactly conjuncts the sensitive World Axis, as Pluto enters Aquarius for the first time since 1798, signalling a radically new era between now and 2043. The next day, Mars exits Gemini after an unheard of 7 months’ transit and dives into Cancer, immediately activating both Saturn and Pluto.

To put the astrology into perspective, this is the 2nd stage of the 1st Saturn/Pluto Event Horizon – their epochal conjunction in January 2020 –which changed life for everyone as we knew it when, in March 2020, half the planet was put under lockdown. We lost more than our personal freedoms – we lost our naïve belief that someone knew better than we did; we lost our belief in what we thought of as continual “progress”.

Now Saturn and Pluto are aligning again – this time 30 degrees apart -Saturn at 0 Pisces and Pluto at 0 Aquarius. These Gods of Change are unfathomably powerful transpersonal forces that shift the collective Zeitgeist and evolution of humanity. As they both change signs along with personal planet Mars, the impact is going to be a quantum Wave all the way from the transpersonal to the personal and back again.

There’s far too much to cover in this weekly overview. If you are a subscriber, re-read my current March 2023 5D Report for an indepth forecast and coaching tools.

The New Moon at 0 Aries is switching on the ignition keys of life, aligning with Pluto, Saturn, Mars and the karmic Nodes of Fate, sparking strong Will, forward momentum and initiation. This is the first of two New Moons in Aries-the next one on April 20 will be a total eclipse.

Start now……engage fully with the agenda that has the most pull, the most attraction, the most compelling quality and do everything at 100%.

Chandra Symbol New Moon ARIES 1:

A man repairing and extending a stone wall in the spring.

“Objective Earth existence embraced with a fury. You submerge yourself in the brute facts and the bare phenomena. You become ready and able to do what is asked or needed and to put nothing in the way of each next thing happening, right on schedule. You actually become a hardy vessel for strong Earth usage. It is a form of penance for past excesses, now gravitating toward the straight and narrow and trying to get certain things straight for a brand-new start. It is the initial phase, the radically new cycle taken up with a passion, with an omnivorous appetite for things to do, problems to solve, worlds to streamline. Tremendous for activating will; intended for nothing else.”
