Full Moon March 9, 2020 – Faith Over Fear

Full Moon March 2020 AstrologyThe Virgo full moon on Monday, March 9, 2020, has a generally positive influence but there are some potential challenges to be aware of.

The March 2020 full moon is opposite Neptune which can cause confusion, deception, and scandal. This challenging aspect to the planet ruling illness and infection may also increase fears about coronavirus which may be well-based if a pandemic is declared. A trine aspect to Jupiter brings the potential good fortune, trust, and faith. However, this generous aspect to the planet of growth could also increase the spread of the virus.

These aspects to the March 2020 full moon activate Jupiter sextile Neptune. This idealistic and spiritual enlightening aspect gives the March 9 full moon its overall positive influence. It also means hope, faith, and moral integrity from Jupiter can overcome any fears, suspicions or secrets from Neptune.

Fixed stars conjunct full moon March 2020 also have a mixed influence but again, a generally positive one. They bring the potential for regrets, disgrace, and misfortune. But also the strength, courage, and spiritual force to combat fear and deception with faith and honesty.

Full Moon Meaning

Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

The March 9 full moon at 19°37′ Virgo is opposite Neptune and trine Jupiter. The strongest influence is the Sun and Neptune opposite the Moon, but Jupiter sextile Neptune amplifies the fortunate influence of Jupiter and also brings out the more positive side of Neptune.

There are a number of fixed stars influencing the full moon March 2020 astrology, from three different constellations. The biggest of these is Denebola in the Tail of the Lion.

Full Moon Challenges

Full Moon opposite Neptune can increase your emotional sensitivity so much that you could become confused about your own feelings and misunderstand others. You could also give the wrong impression to others.

A tendency to over idealize someone and ignore their negative character traits could leave you vulnerable to deception and scandal. Being misunderstood, victimized or rejected could lead to fear, disappointment, isolation, and self-pity. So be very clear and honest about your intentions and avoid gossip.

Your intuition may become negatively influenced by your subconscious fears and be unreliable. You could imagine things that are not real, experience strange feelings or have nightmares. Paranoia, hypochondria, weakness, guilt, and shame are possible. Take extra precautions if you are not feeling well as you could be more susceptible to illness and infection.

Full Moon Solutions

Full Moon trine Jupiter brings good feelings and happiness. It helps you share your feelings with openness and honesty to reduce the deceptive influence of Neptune. It also improves mutual respect and understanding to reduce the confusing influence of Neptune.

Increased self-awareness will help you better differentiate between truth and fiction, reality and illusion. The fortunate and generous Jupiter aspect helps bring out the more positive traits of Neptunes like imagination, creativity, and compassion. Wealth, success, popularity and friendship are possible.

Jupiter sextile Neptune brings harmony, kindness, hope and good fortune. This spiritual enlightening aspect gives a good overall perspective of who you are and your place in the world. You can better align yourself and your goals with your spiritual philosophy or religious beliefs.

You can be generous without sacrificing your living standards. You can grow spiritually without throwing away your material possessions. Optimism, good intentions, and moral integrity make this a good full moon for professional advancement, business, and legal matters.

Full Moon Stars

The full moon in Virgo Sign is actually situated in Leo Constellation. This is because the Constellations have moved about 30° out of alignment with the Signs since they were invented over 2000 years ago. See Precession of the Equinoxes for more detail.

Fixed star astrology is based on planets aligned with stars on the same longitude, represented by the horizontal lines in the star map below. The closest major fixed star to full moon March 2020 is Denebola in the Tail of the Lion. But some minor stars away from the ecliptic ar much closer by longitude. These include stars in the southern constellations of Vela the Sails of the Ship, and Antlia Pneumatica the Air Pump.

Full Moon March 2020 [Stellarium]

  • 18 ♍ 50 – Eta Antliae
  • 18 ♍ 59 – σ Leonis, Shang Tseang
  • 19 ♍ 04 – δ Vela, Alsephina
  • 19 ♍ 15 – 93 Leonis, Tàizǐ
  • 19 ♍ 37 – Full Moon March 2020
  • 21 ♍ 54 – β Leonis, Denebola

Fixed star Denebola at 21°54′ Virgo Sign is 2°16′ away from the full moon. That is nearing the limit of its orb of infuence, However, the list above shows two other stars in Leo Constellation that are much closer.

93 Leonis is called 太子 (Tàizǐ), meaning Crown Prince (of imperial China). [1] σ (Sigma) Leonis is called 西上將 (Shang Tseang), meaning Higher General. [2]

Interestingly, Leo Constellation is associated with royal events especially the ascension or death of kings and queens, and the election or death of heads of state. It is also linked to assassinations, uprisings and massacres, currency and the stock exchange, the Vatican and European Union. Ebertin said that major catastrophes are triggered off by Denebola in particular. [4]

Robson said Denebola makes people noble, daring, self-controlled, generous and busy with other people’s affairs. But it also gives swift judgment, despair, regrets, public disgrace, misfortune from the elements of nature, and happiness turned to anger. [3]

Morse says Denebola symbolizes strength from the Lion, along with both the ability and the need to use it wisely and constructively. It gives a talent for looking forward while at the same time being able to draw upon past experience.[4]

Full Moon conjunct Denebola: Honor and preferment among the vulgar but final disgrace and ruin, violent disease of vital organ, blindness, and injuries to the eyes, accidents, losses through servants, domestic quarrels, temporary separation from marriage partner. [3]

Famous people with Moon conjunct Denebola include Donato Bilancia, Leo Varadkar, Bill Cosby, Serena Williams, Bobby Brown, Marvin Gaye, Robert Redford, and Adrien Brody.

δ (Delta) Velorum is called Alsafinah, an Arabic word meaning “the ship”. Constellation Vela represents the Sails of the Ship, a once larger Constellation called Argo Navis. It gives prosperity in trade and voyages, and strength of mind and spirit, but is associated with drowning. [3]

Constellation Antlia Pneumatica the Air Pump is said to bestow prosperity, harmony and spiritual force. [3]

Full Moon March 2020 Summary

The positive Jupiter aspect to the March 9 full moon brings trust and faith to overcome any confusion from the challenging Neptune. Jupiter also brings honesty and morality to expose any lies and deception from Neptune. Finally, Jupiter sextile Neptune helps you react with generosity, compassion, and forgiveness to those who have victimized, betrayed or deceived you.

This is a good full moon for overcoming your fears. This is also a good full moon to acknowledge your own weaknesses and forgive yourself. This will help you grow spiritually, morally and ethically. Removing guilt and self-pity will lead to a happier and more contented life.

The fixed stars conjunct full moon March 2020 bring strength, courage, self-control, prosperity, and generosity, plus mental and spiritual force. These good qualities are amplified by the helpful Jupiter aspect. But the challenging Neptune aspect increases the risk of regrets, disgrace, misfortune, and arguments with loved ones.

Neptune rules illness and infection so the March 9 full moon could be a bad omen for the spread of coronavirus, especially if the sextile aspect between Jupiter and Neptune acts to amplify the infection.

A pandemic or fears about coronavirus, fear in general, confusion, secrets, and propaganda may negatively impact on world growth. Hopefully some lucky breaks and honesty dispell those fears, leading to greater optimism and prosperity.

The full moon conjunct Denebola brings the potential major catastrophes, assassinations, uprisings, massacres, royal events, and the election or death of heads of state.

A full moon has a relationship with the previous new moon. The February 23 new moon is still having a sexy, sporty and exciting influence, bringing opportunities to develop your natural talents and reach your full potential. It is ideal for competing, starting new projects, taking risks and sexual relations.

The full moon lasts for two weeks up to the March 24 new moon.If the full moon directly impacts your horoscope decan you can read about it in your monthly horoscope. For more detail about how it affects your natal chart see full moon transits.

  2. Hi Jamie, I was quite optimistic about this full moon over my natal Jupiter ….I thought it could contrarest the Neptune transit over my natal Jupiter (the transit of Neptune opposite my natal sun, mercury and Jupiter since 2011 has been harsh)….but after reading your post I feel pessimistic…..how the full moon over my natal Jupiter may act? Thanks.

    • Natal Jupiter is at 17.14 Virgo

      I read that 17 degree Virgo is considered a sensitive and sometimes strengthening point ….but not sure if this applies to my Jupiter as it doesn’t fall exactly on 17 degree.

  3. Funny that so many got their knickers in a twist over Saturn Conjunct Pluto, without seeing the looming Pluto Jupiter conjunction. If that doesnt speak Pandemic I dont know what does! First conjunction coming on 4th April in about 3 weeks; so let’s see what happens.. I have them conjoining in my 8th house trining my natal moon, so hoping to have an intense spiritual/sexual experience rather than die.. I know you dont use house systems. Let’s hope we all get through this

    • It started in China in January. Was it caused by Saturn-Pluto? And will Jupiter-Pluto help or will it make it worse? Jupiter has the name to be “good” but it makes everything bigger.

    • The Saturn-Pluto conjunction seeded this, or ‘released’ it into the collective. I’ve been studying astrology for 40 years now, so I’m quite connected to the archetypes in the objective psyche. The conjunction was 2 degrees off of my Capricorn ascendant. For about six weeks, three either side of the conjunction, I kept on getting what felt like a succession of low grade viruses (or ‘bugs’ as I called them), and yet the doctor (who did a few blood tests) said that was nothing wrong with me. That didn’t surprise me, I suspected whatever the dis-ease was, it was coming from inside rather than outside. A homeopath friend of mine speculated that the archetypes correspond to what they call ‘maisms’ or inherent, hidden patterns of disease. Fascinating stuff. I’m not into fixed star astrology particularly, but I do like the 93 Leonis reference to the Crown Prince of Imperial China! Synchronicities like that always make me chuckle. Thanks for that.
