The New Moon on Monday 27 March, 2017 is at 7 degrees Aries. The New Moon March 2017 astrology is full of contradictions. Venus with the New Moon brings hope of love and money. But Venus retrograde brings risk of loss and a broken heart.
The March 2017 New Moon mixed blessings don’t stop with Venus. Other features of the New Moon horoscope show opportunities for love and success but always with a catch.
The key to handling this complicated New Moon is to choose your options carefully. Taking the moral high ground is the simplest and easiest way to find peace and love in the weeks ahead.
New Moon Meaning
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, turning over a new leaf or starting any new project.
All possibilities are on the table as you put yourself at the center of plans for your future. Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.
The influence of the March 27 New Moon lasts for four weeks up to the April 26 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 27 to the April 11 Full Moon.
New Moon March 2017 Astrology
The March 27 New Moon falls at 7°37′ Aries. This is within range of one fixed star and one planet. The fixed star gives an even mix of good and bad qualities. The planet Venus is peaceful and loving, but is retrograde so offers mixed blessings as well.
There are two more aspects of influence in the New Moon March 2017 astrology chart shown below. A definite theme for this New Moon emerges with one of these aspects being harmonious blue while the other is challenging red.
Before looking closer at the star and aspects, my feeling is that the mix of blessings is more positive than negative. I like the friendly blue aspect hugging the New Moon, as if protecting it from the threatening square aspect in the distance.
New Moon March 2017 Star
At 9°23′ Aries, fixed star Algenib is within its 2°00′ orb of influence from the New Moon. But only by 0°14′, so of moderate influence only. The even mix of good and bad qualities include a strong will and determination but also misfortune and dishonor.
A New Moon conjunct Algenib gives a fighting spirit and love of learning  but risk of dishonor, scandal or trouble through writings. 
Both Sun and Moon with this star can affect the health. If badly aspected or with Mars, Saturn or Uranus, pain or heat would be felt in your head between your nose and upper teeth, including gums and inner ears.
New Moon March 2017 Aspects
New Moon conjunct Venus means your new Moon goals will involve love and money. Sun conjunct Venus together with Moon conjunct Venus is normally a sign of loving relationships, harmony and peace. However, a closer look at the New Moon March 2017 astrology chart above shows a red R symbol next to Venus.
Venus retrograde complicates your new Moon goals. If already in love then an ex lover arriving on the scene may cause problems. Instant attraction and whirlwind romances are possible, whether single or married. Choose your options carefully. Hasty decisions based more on lust than love will only end in sorrow.
You can find true love but some hardship or delay can be expected. These shared burdens are a sign of fated love and the price you must pay to be together. Self love, patience and good timing will increase your chance of a loving and lasting relationship.
Mars sextile Neptune increases your sensual desires making this an ideal time for romance. Your mystic allure will attract people more in tune with your level of spiritual development. You may even find your soul mate. Your strong sense of what is right and true will guide you in your actions.
Jupiter square Pluto makes you want to succeed, and succeed big-time. Success, power and influence are all possible but without some care there will be a price to pay. Ruthless determination, greed and corruption may get you there quicker or make you more money but at what cost? Mars sextile Neptune will provide the moral guidance to stay out of trouble if you so desire.
