Weekly Finstrology Update for March 6: Saturn Dethroned

March 3, 2023

The first of two significant astrological energy shifts this month occurs on Tuesday, March 7, at 8:35 am when Saturn enters the sign of Pisces, the first time it has not been in its ruling signs of Capricorn and Aquarius since December 2017. (The second is when Pluto enters Aquarius on March 23.) This is a huge demotion for Saturn, which has been in charge of its own activities surrounding rules, organization, and structure for more than five years. 

Now, Saturn must play by the rules set by Jupiter, ruler of Pisces. Jupiter prefers Saturn to use its ability to restrict in a way that helps others. Eli Lilly’s announcement on March 1 that it will cap insulin costs at $35 per month fits the new Saturn in Pisces energy perfectly because Pisces rules pharmaceuticals. This portends further price caps on expensive drugs and the potential for pharmaceutical stock prices to be under pressure while Saturn is in Pisces through mid-February 2026. 

Tuesday’s full moon in Virgo, just 55 minutes before Saturn’s sign change, only emphasizes the pharmaceutical aspect of Saturn’s shift. The full moon is putting a spotlight on Virgo-ruled health. 

The technology-oriented stock index, Nasdaq-100, could make a high on Monday, March 6, when out-of-bounds Mars aligns with its first-trade moon/Uranus opposition that could produce extreme sparks. That Venus and Jupiter are trining first-trade Uranus adds to the idea that the move could be excessive and positive. In the sky, the sun sextiles Uranus at 8:42 am Monday, providing financial creativity. 

Markets on the Move

WBD | Warner Bros. Discovery

This relatively new stock is rallying in the Harry Potter glow of a magical release of its Hogwarts Legacy video game on February 10. Within the first two weeks, Warner Bros. Discovery reported the single-player action game is its most successful launch, with more than 12 million sold, generating revenue of $850 million. 

The stock, which launched on April 4, 2022, and set its record high nine days later at $27.50, made a low at $14.02 on the game’s release date as the sun conjoined its first-trade Mars and Saturn. 

WBD looks to set back into a low either Friday, March 10, or Monday, March 13 when Jupiter conjoins its first-trade sun and provides support. Watch the full moon/lunar eclipse on Friday, May 5 for a high because it connects with first-trade Uranus. That peak could be both explosive and significant. Also on that day, transiting Venus trines the stock’s Venus, Mars, and Saturn; transiting Mars trines natal Jupiter and Neptune
