The new moon on the 30th of March 2014 sets the stage for an incredibly intense and volatile month ahead. This new moon at 10 degree Aries, lines up with revolutionary Uranus. During this new moon period, we have the most sinister looking of the seven exact squares between Uranus and Pluto. For the entire new moon phase, there is a tense T-square aspect pattern, which then turns into the explosive Grand Cross April 2014.
This new moon is going to strongly affect the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, but also decans 1 and 2 of the other signs. You can read more about this in the monthly horoscopes. From the moment this new moon phase kicks in, the stress and tension will continue to build until the climax of the grand cross in late April 2014. This new moon phase is the most challenging one I have ever come across, and I am not the only astrologer who thinks so:
“April’s so scary that I’m giving classes on it…we’ve not had this since the American Revolution.” Susan Miller, astrologer to the stars: ‘April’s so scary I’m giving classes on it’.
The March 30 2014 new moon is the final moon phase of an eclipse cycle which began late last year. Those areas of your life which have been in focus since the November 2013 solar eclipse, will become more prominent during April 2014. Unresolved issues will cause more tension, and will force you address these issues with more urgency.
The theme of the previous solar eclipse was one of conservatism, sacrifice, hardship and fear. We have since then, seen a rise in religious fundamentalism, nationalism and all kinds of extremism, resulting in words we have not heard since WWII, like “annexation”. So in the coming weeks we will seek to resolve the personal hardships, restrictions, and fears we have been experiencing, whether in personal relationships, at work, or with our finances.
New Moon March 2014 Astrology Chart
In the horoscope for the new moon, you can see that the stand-out feature of the New Moon March 2014 astrology chart is the new moon conjunct Uranus. On the positive side, this gives us an open mind and the flexibility to take advantage of unexpected opportunities. Unfortunately, the opportunities may stem from chaotic changes taking place which cause much anxiety.
There will be a strong need to break free from routine and tradition, even to rebel against authority. Linking back to the eclipse cycle, Uranus will allow us to find original solutions to ongoing problems, and provide the freedom from restrictions so needed.
The new moon is on the fixed star Algenib, which reinforces the rebellious nature of Uranus. It also adds to the dangerous and explosive feel to the entire month ahead.
The big concern with the unexpected change of direction this new moon brings, is the T-square aspect pattern it makes to Jupiter and Pluto. I recently posted about the April 2014 T-Square, stating:
Any restlessness and anxiety cause by Uranus is going to be exacerbated and exaggerated by Jupiter. It is going to be dramatically intensified out of all proportion by Pluto, leading to some sort of crisis.
Jupiter opposite Pluto suggest that our religious or spiritual belief system will play an important role in helping cope with the fear and stress involved with the new moon. There may be some changes or unexpected news from the Vatican, as this new moon is conjunct the asteroid Vaticana. Extreme weather condition due to climate change may also make the news, as these things are ruled by constellation Pegasus, of which the fixed star Algenib belongs.
The two most malevolent planets in our solar system are both in retrograde motion, together adding to the buildup of frustration and anger, resentment, and generally nasty attitude. Mars retrograde started it backward journey square Venus, so relationship dramas are a current theme. In this March 2014 new moon astrology chart however, you can see that Venus is trine Mars, suggesting more favorable conditions in love relationships. Just to spoil the party, Venus square Saturn retrograde is going to frustrate matters and slow progress in the settling of lovers quarrels.

The most critical time for everyone to show restraint and take extra care during this new moon phase, is for the week from 18 to 25 April 2015. This is not only the climax of challenging aspects between Jupiter, Pluto and the Uranus New Moon, but Mars retrograde completes the dangerous looking cardinal grand square.
This explosive new moon March 2013 astrology is going to have an intensely strong impact on our personal lives. It will also aggravate current crises in the world like shown in the Ukraine horoscope, but also in other areas we don’t yet expect.
