An electrifying Grand Trine...

 

 

We are currently experiencing an exciting and electrifying Grand Trine (a harmonious, flowing aspect pattern) amongst planets in the three fire signs. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus are in Sagittarius, Jupiter is in Leo, and Uranus is in Aries — with trines happening between Nov 26 and Dec 14, 2014 (see exact dates below). In a few words, the Sun is a symbol of the core self, identify and vitality. Mercury is a symbol of the mind and how we express ourselves. Venus is a symbol of love, beauty, pleasure, and wealth. While these inner archetypes connect harmoniously with Jupiter, there is a sense of optimism, opportunity, and grace. While they connect harmoniously with Uranus, there is the potential for flashes of knowing, radical change, and freedom from limitations that have constrained us in the past. A Grand Trine can bring forth rewards for work already completed. Read more...

Grand Fire Trine

 

 

During the last week of September and the first week or so of October 2014, there is an inspiring and dynamic configuration of harmony and flow amongst Jupiter in Leo, Uranus in Aries, and Mars in Sagittarius. The trine aspect amongst all three planets suggests they are on very friendly terms with one another, automatically “get” one another, and naturally support each other in their individual efforts and goals. Whichever houses Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius are in, in your chart represent the areas of life where these three planetary archetypes are playing out their roles and happily connecting in a spirited and enthusiastic (fiery) way. Jupiter brings opportunity and expansion, Uranus brings radical shifts and breakthroughs, and Mars brings the energy and drive to bring it all on. When operating in the fire signs these planets suggest a lot of excitement, the propensity for taking bold risks, and the desire for both freedom and passion. If you have planets or points near 15º of any of the fire signs, you will be feeling this grand trine more powerfully. Read more...

King Davidís birth chart

 

 

“The Star of David, still used as a sacred symbol by Jews worldwide, is based on the horoscope of King David, who was said to have been born with two fortunate grand trines, which interlocked to create a six pointed star. To intimidate his enemies and imply he was unbeatable, it was engraved on his armor. It must have worked, because he seems to have won all his fights and become a powerful monarch. Read more...

The spirit of Mercury retrograde, and Venus trine Mars (♀△♂) today

 

 

Mercury retrograde can be a time of slowing down and allowing ourselves to tarry/abide/dwell with something that is enriching — or a time to simply be present with something that needs attention. This can be the spirit of Mercury retrograde — letting go of the obsessive drive to go forward... (Things will be moving forward soon enough with Uranus turning direct on 12/10 and Mercury turning direct on 12/13).

Venus trine Jupiter (♀△♃)

 

 

Today Venus in Capricorn trines Jupiter in Taurus — the two benefics make a harmonious connection. Venus, the archetype of love, and Jupiter, the archetype of opportunity, meet one another for a sweet rendezvous. Jupiter is confident and optimistic, Venus is beautiful and affectionate. Both know how to enjoy life to the fullest, but since they are currently in earth signs, it is a grounded and levelheaded occasion.

Mars trine Jupiter (♂△♃)

 

 

Mars in Virgo trine Jupiter in Taurus is exact tonight, but its influence may be felt for about a week before and after. Mars, the brave warrior, takes action and initiative to achieve what is desired. Jupiter, the benevolent king, represents increase and positive development. A trine between the two planets gives a natural and easy flow. And both in earth signs support a tangible manifestation… To me this aspect embodies the feeling of opportunity and the inspiration to seize it.

A New Moon in Virgo ♍ tonight

 

 

There is a New Moon in Virgo tonight at 11:04p EDT, representing first the end of one cycle... And then the beginning of a fresh new one. 

 

The Sabian symbol for this new beginning is: “Children’s voices and the smiles of elders; it is a merry go round with blatant music and unrestrained joyousness.”

 

The Virgo archetype represents necessary, honest, and critical analysis — of self first and foremost, and then directing that precise vision outward — for the purpose of improving the capacity to be of service... How do we embrace the current Virgo energy of work and service along with the potent New Moon symbol of “unrestrained joyousness?” On the surface the two themes may appear in stark contrast. Yet, as The Course in Miracles states, “To give and to receive are one in truth.” Read more...
