Author calculated March 21, 2023 Aries New Moon Zodiac Chart via Astro.com
The Northern Hemisphere Spring Equinox on March 20 reinforces the March 21 New Moon energy as both are on a world axis degree at 0° Aries. This means impactful events are brewing. As of late with FTX and then Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) collapsing that’s quite an understatement.
Is it coincidence, synchronicity, or esoteric karma that the next FOMC meeting is on the very same day as the new moon? Fire sign and cardinal creator Aries implies a tone of independent warrior spirit. The Fed is bound to initiate something impressive.
The Aries New Moon chart above shows Mars next to asteroid Chaos in the Washington, DC 12th house section. This suggests how actions taken for or in the USA could be rather chaotic. The dualistic sign of Gemini can also infer trickery. Mars as the guardian warrior planet of Aries doubles the impetuous energy while conjoining asteroid Chaos.
Everyone, please watch your temper!
For this new moon 10th house area, both Venus (money) and asteroid Juno (partners) play a leading role in the upcoming lunar cycle. I think the Fed will continue to assist the banking sector since rapidly raising interest rates backfired and reduced liquidity to the point of chaos as we just saw with a depositor run at Silicon Valley Bank.
March 22: Chairman Powell will announce whether interest rates will rise yet again or pause. Expect emotions to be markedly fueled as the Moon (emotions, people) conjoins Chiron (healing, wounds) and then Jupiter (expansion, wealth).
March 23: the most crucial astrological event in 2023 happens: Pluto enters Aquarius! There’s no doubt this ties into the sudden upsets we’ve recently seen, whether with power players or society. Pluto remains at 0° Aquarius until June 11 when it retrogrades back into Capricorn for one final hurrah of this 248-year cycle.
We’re entering a very critical and challenging phase for all societies: economically, emotionally, spiritually and scientifically. The last time we had Pluto in Aquarius was 1777 – 1799. Those 20 years coincided near America’s revolutionary birth and the French Revolution. History repeated in perfect rhyme last week with riots in Paris, France.
If you’re risk averse, you’ll want to be well protected, especially at the start of Pluto’s Aquarius ingress.
March 24: the Moon conjoins Venus and then Uranus in Taurus. Financial matters are accented along with potential surprises for banking, currencies and cryptos. Emotional eruptions about money and relationships are all too likely.
March 25: Mars finally leaves Gemini for Cancer, emphasizing renewed interest in security, home, family and real estate. These matters dominate until May 20 when Mars exits Cancer.
March 27: is more favorable for markets and all commercial enterprises as Mercury is meeting Jupiter, however the Moon in Gemini may be fickle. By the next day on March 28, the Moon and Mars conjoin in Cancer inferring escalating or angry emotions. Markets up Monday can quickly recede on Tuesday.
March 28: check out the night sky to the west to see Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, plus Uranus if you have a telescope or very strong binoculars. Venus is easiest to see right after sunset. Mars is reddish towards the southwest. You’ll need an unobstructed view for Mercury and Jupiter near the horizon. Stargazing is fun! Use a mobile app to confirm what you’re viewing.
March 30: is another pivotal day to watch during this waxing Moon phase. Mars (war) in Cancer will trine Saturn (structures) in Pisces, both water signs. Also on this day, Venus (money) conjoins Uranus (shocks, tech). This suggests a volatile and upsetting time period, including one day prior before these pairings exactly align. [P.S. Addendum: on a mundane level, this is the day when past President Donald Trump was indicted, facing over 30 counts relating to business fraud.]
March 31: appears to be an easier day for everyone with the Moon in Leo trine Sun and Chiron in Aries. Fiery energy toward accomplishment could end the month and markets on a high note.
April 3: Mercury enters Taurus and then squares Pluto in Aquarius. I expect more instability and challenges in commerce and communications and/or with governments and markets.
I offer more detailed analysis in my 2023 Forecast Report which is included with one of my 2 top-tier consultations.
I’ll talk about additional short-term lunar cycles soon as we near the upcoming April 5th Full Moon in Libra.
Investor focus now is on what the Fed and Chairman Powell will do next. Below is a “synastry” relationship analysis of the Federal Reserve Board birth chart with this new moon transit:
House area 10: Transiting Sun and New Moon link exactly to the Fed’s 0° Aries Midheaven arrow. This is quite remarkable astrologically coinciding with this Aries New Moon. It suggests a brand-new beginning for how the Fed will handle interest rates moving forward. The fact that 0° Aries is a world degree or point underpins how whatever the Fed does now will echo exponentially and globally. This combo infers the Fed might announce a temporary pause from raising interest rates.
House area 9: Transiting Neptune conjoins the Fed’s Juno. Confusion, disillusion and/or deception with partners are indicated. Why didn’t the Fed and U.S. government foresee the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank? Neptune-Juno also infers the Federal Reserve is wearing rose-colored glasses and hasn’t the foggiest idea about how to resolve inflation. Based solely on astrological cycles there’s little that can be done except try to ride out this economic storm.
House area 12: Transiting Mars with Chaos conjoin the Fed’s Pluto. Lurking in the hidden and secret 12th house, the Fed must now use its power to take assertive actions that might bring chaos. We’ll see the end results as Mars and Chaos precisely conjoin the Fed’s Pluto at 0° Cancer around March 24 to 26.

Below is a mundane “synastry” relationship analysis of the USA Sibly birth chart with this new moon transit:
House area 4: Transiting Jupiter conjoins USA Chiron April 4 to 7. I’m giving you a heads up since this exact meeting doesn’t occur until we’re almost at the next full moon. This suggests some good news that at least for now we’ve reached peak inflation in the U.S. in relation to Chiron’s cycle as an inflation indicator.
House area 7: Transiting Mars conjoins USA Venus March 31 to April 1. The end of this lunar cycle is amplified in an assertive or aggressive tone where money and partnership matters are concerned. It reminds me of the alien in the film, Independence Day who eerily conveyed, “Peace? No peace.” IMHO, the Fed should proactively expand liquidity and loan money to banks in need. At this point bank runs and financial collapse seem scarier than inflation.

Moving on to stock market indicators, here’s what stands out in the NYSE - New Moon synastry comparison:
House area 10: Transiting Sun and New Moon in Aries conjoins NYSE South Node (Desc. T.Node). This implies an overall bearish trend for U.S. markets during this cycle and certainly at least until the Sun reaches 3 – 4° Aries on March 23 – 24.
House area 11: Transiting Juno conjoins NYSE Venus. Again this speaks to the importance of partners and financials in money sign Taurus for long range investment goals. The banking sector will figure prominently.
Author calculated NYSE - March 21, 2023 Aries New Moon Synastry Chart via Astro.com
Next for the DJIA - New Moon synastry chart:
House area 7 and Whole House area 8: Transiting Sun in the area of partners (7th) and finances or debt from others (8th) meets DJIA Mars near March 23rd. This coincides with Pluto entering Aquarius. The Sun shines a light and triggers Mars to initiate bold, courageous actions. The Dow Index will be infused with aggression and likely choppy trading.
Author calculated DJIA - March 21, 2023 Aries New Moon Synastry Chart via Astro.com
For the S&P – New Moon synastry chart:
House area 10: Transiting Saturn conjoins S&P Venus on April 3rd. Saturn implies limitations and restrictions on Venus which rules money. Therefore, the overall trend for the S&P around that time is lower.
House area 11: Transiting Sun, Moon and Mercury all conjoin S&P asteroid Chaos at or near 4° Aries during this lunar phase. These movements also suggest a downward trend for the S&P as this cycle begins.
Author calculated S&P - March 21, 2023 Aries New Moon Synastry Chart via Astro.com
For the NASDAQ - New Moon synastry chart:
House area 1: Transiting Uranus connects with NASDAQ Saturn. Surprising price swings for this index are likely during this new moon cycle. There are potential bullish days depending on individual stocks or groups within the tech sector. Examples include Nvidia for chip makers, or Microsoft for artificial intelligence like OpenAI ChatGPT, etc.
House area 10: Transiting Pluto will conjoin NASDAQ Mercury. We’re within 1° of this pairing, which is like a slow, boiling pot of water about to spill over. That’s a good analogy for what happened with Silicon Valley Bank. Unfortunately, this transit suggests the worst is yet to come for the tech sector before it ultimately takes control as the almighty power for trade and commerce. IMHO Elon Musk and Cathie Wood have been far ahead of the curve by many years.
House area 12: Transiting Mercury conjoins NASDAQ Chiron on March 22nd, the same day Chairman Powell announces any interest rate hikes. Mercury is commerce and communication while Chiron is our wounds that need healing. This pairing makes me think a March pause is in order given the recent SVB collapse, extraordinary bailout circumstances, and problematic concerns for other banks. My forecast guess is Mr. Powell will talk about the recent chaos and say, “This is merely a pause, not a pivot.”

For Oil 1st Trade Date - Full Moon synastry chart:
House area 4: Transiting Neptune conjoins Oil’s Neptune in Pisces. We’re slowly nearing a new oil cycle since Neptune and Pisces rule oil. Note how transiting Saturn newly in Pisces is now in Neptune’s same sign and therefore line of sight. This indicates oil prices should decline for the time being. I’ve noticed more relief at the gas pump lately. Falling gas prices could help reduce inflation.

If you’ve made it this far, you may be wondering where I think you should be investing your money these days. Personally, I’m risk averse and a big fan of financial guru Suze Orman. Listen to her March 16, 2023 podcast for sound advice. That’s what I’m doing.
Until next time, I wish you a bold, productive and prosperous new moon cycle.

Note: All exact transits are based on Eastern time zone.
With the Full Moon in Virgo and Sun in Pisces, we’re in a changeable “mutable” sign axis. Maintaining fluidity will be most helpful during this waning moon cycle.
Virgo and Pisces are service-oriented zodiac signs. A focus now on the needs of others as well as healing yourself will align you with the cosmos.
We’ll likely feel that impulse as Saturn, the planet of discipline, responsibility and structure enters Pisces shortly after the full moon. Saturn in Pisces urges us toward concrete tasks based on boundless dreams.
However, this serious Saturn influence along with the Moon in Virgo and then Libra can cast a critical eye and create an imbalance of feelings or financial markets until late on March 10 when the Moon enters Scorpio at 7:06 PM.
Saturn transits take about 2 to 3 years to travel through each zodiac sign. Saturn teaches us patience and life lessons. Saturn won’t officially leave Pisces until February 14, 2026. Pisces represents our collective spirit while Saturn can dampen moods.
This Saturn transit certainly foreshadows a recession. The best way forward to use this energy is focused discipline in all your endeavors. Try to remember Saturn does reward those who are willing to work hard.
As March 11 arrives there are 3 harmonious planetary lineups that favor accomplishment and surprise opportunities for love and money: Venus in Aries sextile Mars in Gemini; Mercury in Pisces sextile Uranus in Taurus; Jupiter conjunct Chiron in Aries.
Importantly, Jupiter conjunct Chiron suggests an incremental short-term peak for the current inflationary cycle as it relates to Chiron. We aren’t completely out of the woods yet, but we could start to see a welcome reprieve after this period.
March 14 to 19 will be action packed with above normal planetary movements. So much high energy in a short time span often infers market and personal volatility as we lead up to the exact alignment patterns.
We’ll be feeling Mars square Neptune before they align exactly on March 14. This implies potential disappointment, disillusion, and/or deception. Fluctuations and a news emphasis about oil availability or prices are possible. Since Mars represents war and Neptune signifies oil, what’s happening with Russia’s war against Ukraine could dominate.
On March 15, the Sun and Neptune conjoin in Pisces. We’ll have many dreams and visions to ponder, but it’s best to not get lost in a Neptunian fog. The Sun shines its spotlight on Neptune which again highlights matters of oil supplies. Neptune also rules film, music, and drugs so these themes may also show up prominently on the world stage.
March 16 is a day to watch out and think before you speak! We’ll be under the rays of: Mercury conjoining Neptune in Pisces; Sun in Pisces square Mars in Gemini; Venus in Aires square Pluto in Capricorn; Venus entering Taurus; Mercury in Pisces square Mars in Gemini. Prepare for heated discussions in all relationships and wild turmoil in the markets.
Once the fireworks subside, on March 17 the Sun conjoins Mercury in Pisces and Venus in Taurus sextiles Saturn. It’s a much smoother day for communicating with others, empowering your visionary ideals, or stabilizing partnership and financial matters.
On March 18, Mercury in Pisces sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. At 12:24 AM on March 19, Mercury enters Aries. By now, we all should know how to structure and proceed with grand revelations. You might want to create a vision board now to serve as a valid reference point for your Spring goals.
March 20 is a big power day. First the Sun in Pisces sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. Then we have the annual Equinox when the Sun enters 0° Aries, a significant world point. On March 21, we reach the next New Moon, which this time is synchronized at 0° Aries. This greatly increases the importance of the upcoming season and strongly suggests major global events. Aries is the warrior cardinal sign that initiates and implements via independent action. More to come on this next time.
Below is a mundane relationship (aka synastry) comparison of the USA Sibly birth chart with this full moon transit:
House area 7: Transiting Mars conjoins USA Mars in Gemini. Government partnerships and relationships heat up with intensified action. This pairing might trigger amplified U.S. involvement in Russia’s war with Ukraine. Competition, anger, machinery, and weapons are accented. With Mars out of bounds in the sign Gemini, clever double talk, duality, and do-overs are probable.
House area 4: Transiting Venus conjoins USA Chiron in Aries. Venus represents money and love; Chiron is our wounds and ability to heal them. The 4th house represents home, family and real estate. This pattern heightens renewed financial concerns for the U.S. real estate market.
House area 10: Transiting P.Fort. (Part of Fortune) conjoins USA Saturn in Libra. This transit reinforces U.S. recessionary fears which will no doubt come under a microscope now. Also spotlighted are relationships and legal matters as Libra oversees these.
Author calculated USA - March 7, 2023 Full Moon Synastry Chart via Astro.com
Moving on to financial astrology indicators, here’s what stands out in the NYSE - Full Moon synastry comparison:
House area 10: Transiting Neptune still links to the NYSE Pisces Midheaven arrow. Although this connection is no longer exact, there’s still a lack of clarity where NYSE investing is concerned. Neptune is a foggy gas giant and infers confusion, as I state in my 2023 Forecast Report. Clients receive a complimentary copy of this revealing annual report when purchasing one of my 2 top-tier consultations. (An excellent value!)
House area 10: Transiting Venus conjoins NYSE Moon in Aries. Venus symbolizes money and love while the Moon signifies the people. Investors will be focused on that famously quoted line from the film Jerry Maguire, “Show me the money!” We’ll be seeing forthright passion and maybe even anger.
House area 10: Transiting Eris conjoins NYSE Saturn in Aries. Again, more discord is noted that can affect NYSE at the structural level. This suggests sustained choppy trading rather than a steady uphill climb or new bull market.
Author calculated NYSE - March 7, 2023 Full Moon Synastry Chart via Astro.com
Next for the DJIA - Full Moon synastry chart below:
House area 6: Transiting Mercury conjoins DJIA P.Fort. (Part of Fortune) in Pisces. Expect reignited news of eventful and fated communications for employees working at large corporations during this waning lunar phase. Stockholders of Starbucks ($SBUX), Apple ($AAPL), Tesla ($TSLA), Amazon ($AMZN) and others will likely see a further push toward workers unionizing which will put additional pressures on these companies. Unfortunately, another possible scenario with this pairing is more news about job layoffs.
Author calculated DJIA - March 7, 2023 Full Moon Synastry Chart via Astro.com
See below for the S&P - Full Moon synastry chart:
House area 10: Transiting Saturn conjoins S&P Mercury in Pisces. Saturn is restrictive and Mercury oversees commerce and trade. This can signal recession fears and a downward trend for the S&P. Investors would be wise to know their limits rather than try to test them.
House area 10: Transiting Mercury conjoins S&P Juno in Pisces. This is optimistic for forming commercial and business partnerships with a shared vision. Ideals are strong with Pisces so be advised not to let your imagination run away with grandiose schemes. Like fish, Pisces can swim around in circles and take a long time to make firm decisions.
Author calculated S&P - March 7, 2023 Full Moon Synastry Chart via Astro.com
Below is the NASDAQ - Full Moon synastry chart:
House area 1: Transiting Uranus conjoins NASDAQ Saturn in Taurus. Again, price swings with continued bullish trends are likely although this index will remain choppy due to the disruptive nature of Uranus contacting Saturnian structure.
House area 6: Transiting P.Fort. conjoins NASDAQ Uranus-P.Fort. conjunction in Libra. This suggests unexpected shocks and unbalanced partnerships. Being in the 6th house area of employees, again we’re most likely looking at surprises due to workers seeking unions. On the positive side there could be huge breakthroughs in technology, or for the NASDAQ index itself.
Author calculated NASDAQ - March 7, 2023 Full Moon Synastry Chart via Astro.com
For Oil 1st Trade Date - Full Moon synastry chart:
House area 4: Transiting Neptune conjoins Oil’s Neptune in Pisces. This is not quite exact however implies we’re nearing a new oil cycle since Neptune and Pisces rule oil. We should watch this closely to see what happens when the transiting Sun and Mercury conjoin these positions.
Author calculated Oil 1st Trade Date - March 7, 2023 Full Moon Synastry Chart via Astro.com
For the Federal Reserve Board - Full Moon synastry chart:
House area 9: Transiting Neptune conjoins the Fed Juno and Eris in Pisces. Neptune suggests deception or a lack of clarity, and may have the Fed looking at inflation through rose colored glasses. I suspect there will be a huge debate among all the Federal Reserve Board members on how much to hike interest rates due to dwarf planet Eris (discord) so close to Juno (partners).
