New Moon March 24, 2020 – Wounding & Healing

New Moon March 2020 AstrologyThe Aries new moon on March 24, 2020 is a very challenging influence, indicating sickness, loss and grief. New moon March 2020 conjunct Chiron exposes karmic wounds and may also bring pain from new wounds.

The March 2020 new moon signals a time of fear, inhibition, and restraint. This is only to be expected given the unprecedented restrictions and panic resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

Above all else, Chiron is a healer. With wisdom and unconditional love, he teaches how to heal yourself and others with compassion and empathy.

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. So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, 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.

New Moon March 2020 Astrology

The March 24 new moon at 04°12′ Aries makes just one major planetary aspect. But with an orb of over 4 degrees, the new moon sextile Saturn is only a mild influence but it is a positive one.

A stronger influence comes from Chiron, Lilith, and the lunar nodes. These three are not used in traditional astrology but the lunar nodes are important in Vedic, or Indian astrology. They are associated with family, past lives and karma. Chiron is being used more and more by modern astrologers and is associated with deep karmic wounds but also healing and magic. Lilith (Black Moon Lilith) is the Dark Goddess archetype and like a feminine version of Chiron.

Another important influence on the new moon March 2020 astrology is a fixed star called Deneb Kaitos. This star acts like Saturn on a bad day, causing misfortune, inhibition, and restraint. There is also an asteroid on the new moon degree which reinforces the karmic wounding theme.

Saturn Seriousness

New moon sextile Saturn give the patience and perseverance to struggle on through these very hard times. It gives a serious and responsible attitude and makes you focus on practical matters. This is a good new moon to complete serious or difficult tasks, to ask for advice from professionals and elders and to share your wisdom with younger people.

Chiron Wounding and Healing

Chiron represents wounding and healing. It is a deep wound in your soul and also the ability to heal yourself and others. The new moon conjunct Chiron exposes your most painful wounds, physical and emotional. You will feel pain from the wounds you have suffered but also guilt from the pain you have inflicted on others. Chiron may also manifest a new wound through illness, accident, or loss.

Increased awareness of these wounds can make you more sensitive to the pain. You may even become scared to express yourself but it important that you do not keep the pain buried inside. Increased empathy and understanding means the wounds of your loved ones will also become more apparent and affect you more deeply.

Childhood wounds associated with your parents may resurface. Grief, fear, rejection, alienation or victimization are possible. You may feel that you are damaged or that fate has been particularly cruel to you. This could lead to a loss of confidence, depression, and self-pity.

On the other hand, you may react more aggressively to your pain and start hurting yourself and others. But new moon March 2020 is a time for nurturing and healing. Chiron heals through medicine, astrology, Tarot, and your hands and words. In its highest manifestation, Chiron heals through thoughts alone.

Lilith Magic

Lilith is not used that often in astrology but according to Marina at Darkstar Astrology she represents: Priestess v prostitute, magic v sorcery, forbidden fruit, angels v demons, animal magnetism, kundalini, tantric sex, seduction, the supernatural, intuition, psychic ability, psychic healing, hypnotism, charisma, altered states, glamour, shamanism, psychedelic drugs, addiction, obsession.

Black Moon Lilith is like a feminine version of Chiron. In Christian Astrology, Chiron represents Christ and Lilith represents Mary Magdelene. So new moon March 2020 conjunct Chiron and Lilith is like a sacred mystical union.

This new moon could see the start of some special relationships between people who feel they are not accepted by mainstream society. You could find comfort in the arms of a fellow outcast like the following examples:

  • Jesus Christ and Mary Magdelena
  • Merlin and Morgan le Fay
  • Buffy Summers and Riley Finn
  • Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley
  • Geralt of Rivia and Yennefer of Vengerberg

Lunar Nodes Karma

New moon square the Nodes of the Moons represents a karmic crossroads. Feeling torn between your past and your future, you may feel confused about your future and hesitant to go forward.

A tendency to become stuck in negative emotional patterns may lead to relationship tension, periods of self-imposed isolation and worry about the future. You may also experience anxiety, guilt, and fear as you confront deeply buried memories, and your own bad habits and prejudices.

Leaving your past behind means you may have to make sacrifices and let something go, and that may well cause some pain. But a new moon means it is time for a new start. Difficult choices about family, friends and other things you are emotionally attached to have to be made.

Relationships, beliefs, and behaviors that are good for you will remain. It is only those things that are holding you back from fulling your destiny that you need to let go of. Some people will resist your efforts while others will be more supportive. It will become obvious who is trying to hold you back.

Although you may seek advice, you really have to look inside to know which way to turn. So follow your intuition while remaining responsive to other people. During this four-week moon phase, you will learn many truths that propel you forward on a new path. New karmic relationships may form and these people will also help you find the right path for your soul.

The Sea Monster

New Moon March 2020 is in Aries Sign but is actually situated in Pisces 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.

The March 24 new moon is not actually within orb of any major fixed star in the Fishes. However, it is aligned with a big star in the Tail of the Whale or Sea Monster, called Deneb Kaitos. It is labeled in the star map below with its other name, Difda.

March 2020 New Moon in Aries

New Moon March 2020 [Stellarium]

Fixed star Deneb Kaitos causes self-destruction by brute force, sickness, disgrace, misfortune, and compulsory change. [1] Associated with it are inhibitions and restraint in every way, psychologically and physically. [1]

New Moon conjunct Deneb Kaitos: Pioneer, reckless, headstrong, mental disturbance, violent temper, many quarrels, some loss keenly felt, accidents such as burns, scalds, and cuts. [2]

Asteroid Salacia

Asteroid 120347 Salacia at 04°20′ Aries is conjunct the March 24 new moon. It is actually a Trans Neptunian Object (TNO) named after the Roman Goddess of the sea and wife of Neptune. She is identified with the Greek goddess Amphitrite, consort of Poseidon.

Karmic astrologer Zsuzsanna Griga says that Salacia represents hiding, emotional depth, commitment, or the lack of it, Atlantean karma, and “dolphin” lives. “I am hiding where you won’t find me”. In general, Trans-Neptunians describe karmic wounds as well as the knowledge and insight that can be derived from wounding experiences. [3]

Salacia may be interpreted as the feminine side of Neptune, which is able to hide even from himself — a very Neptunian concept. Something similar occurs in the human psyche: we often hide our darkest aspects from ourselves and don’t allow them to the surface; otherwise, we couldn’t act out our bright and sunny personality traits too convincingly for others… Darkness and depth are the prerequisites of the Goddess in her full powers. The keepers of the new masculine paradigm tried to demonize everything that symbolized the primordial feminine because they hoped to stabilize their own value system. In a way, this shift also occurs in the story: Salacia is allowed to leave the territory of darkness and may “rise” to the glittering surface. [4]

  1. Let me share this:

    Capricorn is the sign of reversals, inversions. The triangular pattern, Exter shaped. Capricorn rules the 12th house in the Age of Aqr chart, Jan 12/96. Secret organizations, financial, crypto.

    You gotta put in a reversal; population, magnetic pole, engineering, Zodiak, and so on. You can’t do this overtly. It is done covertly.

  2. Chiro and Lilith and New Moon trine natal Sun is ti positive? What does it means? Anda Mars trine Uranus? Neptune trine Neptune?

    • 04Vir05, the Mars – Venus conjunction, August 24, 2019. The cusp of exposure. Where I live, that was the 11th house

      Relationship analysis must take a close look at these Mars-Venus gatherings, the last one in Virgo around the 18th degree @ 2017, and previous to that, the Libra conjunction @ 2015

      Now we are exposed, Mars/Venus quincunx Lilith/Chiron.

      Social distancing, ok, but’s too late

      it’s in you.. and we’re not talking Covid.

  3. Nothing positive in this for people like myself with a birthday on the 25th?

  4. Hi Jamie, I am particularly concerned about this moon: would you consider that his new moon makes a conjunct if natal moon is at 2.34 Aries? If yes would this activate the natal opposition to Saturn even if Saturn is at 27 Virgo? Or would you instead consider that it just makes a trine to rising sign at 5.48 Leo? Or both? This moon makes me feel very nervous and I worry for my mother. Thanks.

    • HI Meli. So many of us are worried about our mothers right now. The opposition to Saturn is not triggered. There may be a small influence on your Moon but the strongest influence is a positive one to your Ascendant and that gives you protection.

  5. Powerful new moon for this healed Aries moon, conjunct my natal moon at 4 of Aries.
    Uranus at 4 conjunct my natal Saturn at 4 of Taurus and Venus at 2.
    Chiron at 5 conjunct my natal Aries at 6.
    These transits and the stellium in Capricorn point to a rebuilding what was deconstructed.

    I love God.

  7. My 8th house Aries moon is 4 degrees… normally I’d look forward to a new moon conjunct it but Chiron, Lilith and the Nodes have me concerned… also natal mercury at 6’ Libra is involved. I’m in isolation with 14 year old child, his moon 5 Scorpio so we are often in conflict even when not locked in a house together 😕

    • Hi Zoë. Hopefull this new moon on your Moon results in a healing of your relationship with your child.

      • yes, so far there has been a huge purging for me of my own wounds of lack of nurturing and care from my own mother, her own mother gave her and another child up for adoption ( in a cruel way, seperating them to make more money from it) and this lack of nurture plus lots of trauma and rage down the female line seems to be coming out. I did a lot of powerful emotional release yesterday in the car ( I was on my own) and things are feeling easier. interestingly my son’s north node is at 5’ Aries.

  8. Jamie? Why did you say (write): Lilith (Black Moon Lilith) is the Dark Goddess archetype and like a feminine version of Chiron?

  9. In planning on going to work next week. Drive 20km, isolate park. work in distance to my brother, at a property that is rural. Sounds reasonable to me. Get paid in cash, buy produce from farm standz, leave money in jar. Pay April rent, life goes on.

  10. Lilith and Chiron, I’ve been tracking these two, because my Moon is at 5Aries, and Juno at 6Aries

    I had a very vivid dream 3 days ago, and maybe I’ll say more about it on the Chiron thread, if it comes to pass.

    If you want another Angle on the Chiron-Lilith conjunction, take a look at the New York Stock Exchange Progressed chart. The natal info: 16 May 1792, 11:27 LMT

    Progressed Chiron and Lilith are in a 2 deg orb separating, 31 Dec 1792

  11. what are the effects of this new moon if your natal moon and sun are also in Aries? In the 9th house
