Energies of the New Moon 3/17/2018

era of light astrologyThe new moon on March 17, 2018 falls at 27° Pisces Sign in the Tropical Zodiac. The New Moon March 2018 astrology will expose painful wounds because of a close alignment with minor planet Chiron, the Wounded Healer.

The March 2018 new moon makes aspects to Mars and Uranus that form an aspect pattern called a Medium Learning Triangle. A conflict or crisis will add salt to your exposed wound but new discoveries and higher self-awareness will lead to rapid healing.


A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. This is an excellent time for making a fresh start and turning over a new leaf or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The effects of the March 17 New Moon will last four weeks up to the April 15 New Moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from March 17 to the March 31 Full Moon.


The March 17 new moon at 26°53′ Pisces forms a triangular aspect pattern as shown in the New Moon March 2018 astrology chart below. The blue trine aspect from Mars to Uranus represents a state of harmony. This balanced state is where you would naturally want to stay, feeling comfortable and secure.

The red square aspect from the new moon to Mars represents an irritation or disturbance that unsettles the balanced state. An uncomfortable decision or action must be taken that you would prefer not to have to deal with. A crisis then develops as you are torn between wanting to relax in the blue state, and having to fight for it in the red state.

To solve this problem you must reach past the polarized thinking of the single aspects. The green semi-sextile aspect from the new moon to Uranus provides a third point of view. It represents a state of flux, experimenting and experiencing new ways to find the perfect balance. Instead of putting off dealing with the crisis of the red square, you must view the square as representing an opportunity to resolve the conflict.

Bruno and Louise Huber [1] call the this three-colored aspect pattern a Medium Learning Triangle. It represents a crisis mechanism that results in learning or development. Once this three-phase crisis mechanism is completed, new ground is broken and a state of harmony is achieved. More than one cycle may need to be completed, especially if a new problem arises.

New Moon square Mars suggests that the crisis involves a challenge from an angry man, your competitors or enemies. Someone may try to assert their power over you, leading to ego conflicts. You may already be irritable and impatience, and likely to react to any provocation or threats with aggression.

This aspect can lead to a buildup of anger, resentment or sexual frustration. Such potentially destructive energies must be channeled constructively so they do not result in conflict, accidents, muscle pain or exhaustion. Exercise, masturbation or hard work will work so long as you don’t over extend yourself and strain something.

New Moon March 2018 is the first moon phase since lunar and solar eclipses that had strong feminist themes. Sun square Mars could bring an increase of sexual assaults or the reporting of earlier acts of sexual violence. Men may feel threatened about possibile allegations being made against them and some men will feel victimized because of false allegations. There will be a backlash of male anger at recent high-profile allegations of sexual misconduct.

New Moon semi-sextile Uranus suggest that striving for a solution involves gathering information one small step at a time until things start to make sense. Curiosity and inventiveness will help you to make new discoveries or receive flashes of insight. Unexpected meetings and chance encounters will likely be more frequent and enlightening.

Science, the internet and astrology may help resolve a crisis or relieve your frustration. You might have difficulty sticking to a routine and you could be easily distracted. However, it is this tendency to skip from one thing to another that leads to the extra insight and discoveries.

Mars sextile Uranus suggests the harmonization will be fun and exciting, more than calm and relaxing. Resolution of the conflict should involve pleasant surprises and stimulating encounters. Extra initiative, inspiration and motivation will bring quick changes that help solve your original relationship drama, sexual frustration or other crisis.

This sexually stimulating aspect brings the chance of an exciting new romance and you will have the courage to make the first move. Experimentation and kinkiness in the bedroom can reinvigorate a troubled sexual relationship. On the other hand, this is also a good time to break away from relationships which you feel limits your self-expression or freedom. This also applies to jobs or other things holding you back from success and happiness. Trust your instincts and don’t be afraid to take a risk. Fortune favors the brave.

New Moon with Minor Planet Chiron

New Moon conjunct Chiron means the crisis, anger or conflict resulting from this new moon will expose a very painful wound in your soul. It could be an event from your childhood like bullying, or a physical wound, illness or disability. It could be a broken heart that never healed or the death of a loved one. Your deepest wound could have damaged your self-esteem and lead to depression, feelings of victimization or and inferiority complex.

Chiron is conjunct fixed star Scheat at 29°38′ Pisces. This notorious star is associated with extreme misfortune, murder, suicide, and drowning. [2] Scheat is also associated with catastrophes such as floods, shipwreck, mining accidents and airplane accidents. [3]

New moon conjunct Chiron will expose your deepest wound and Mars will bring back the pain due to some crisis or conflict. Mars square Chiron also suggests wounding by war, fire, cuts, weapons, violence and sexual violence or sexual problems like frigidity, impotency and other sexual dysfunctions.

The increase in reporting of sexual misconduct will no doubt cause pain for many victims, perpetrators, the falsely accused and all of their families. However, positive aspects to Uranus in the New Moon March 2018 astrology chart will bring unexpected opportunities for learning and development. Rapid change, new discoveries, sexual adventures, insights and higher self-awareness will help heal your pain.
