Venus has entered the earthy, gutsy sign of Virgo and forms a Grand Trine in earth signs with Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. This serves to help us organize, focus and achieve within our means. This type of Grand Trine is helpful in financial matters because it reins in impulsive spending or being drawn to useless things that call our wallets.
Another Grand Trine in water signs involves Neptune in Pisces, the Sun in Cancer and Jupiter in Scorpio. This gives us heightened intuition, unusual dreams and controlled emotions.
These two Grand Trines are interlocked in a Star of David pattern, enhancing the power of both. This rarely happens, so take advantage of the magic of this configuration!
The New Moon on Wednesday will partially eclipse the sun and this eclipse will be visible in the southern hemisphere.
Hopefully all of my American readers had a good Independence Day and again, sorry for the loss of a column last week. Still dealing with a family member in hospice and that’s never easy; it’s mentally and emotionally draining but now that things are under control for now, I can hopefully stay on track.
As always, keep looking after each other!
Aries (March 21- April 19): This week will definitely be better than last week was; your Ruler Mars, retrograde, has moved past his square to chaotic Uranus but will approach this alignment again, so learn from last week and try not to repeat whatever got your goat. Powerful Venus has moved into Virgo, your sector of Work/Health. Doing so, she is involved in a Grand Trine in earth signs and there is another Grand Trine in water signs that was also around last week. This week has a whole different attitude with optimism, depth of feeling and tangible gains to be made.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Venus moves into your companion earth sign Virgo and forms a Grand Trine in earth signs, greatly benefitting you! You will find many tasks easier, unexpected good luck and in general feel like the machinery is oiled. There is also a Grand Trine in water signs and this helps you sort your emotions out and gain empathy and possibly premonitory dreams or dreams of a symbolic nature that is trying to tell you something. Anything you set out to do now will take less effort, which is always nice. A very different flavor than last week!
Gemini (May 21- June 20): Two interlocking Grand Trines (one in earth, one in water) tempt you to try and go in ten directions at once but you’ll soon find that impossible and settle into a routine that suits you better. Last week was super busy, maybe busier than you wanted it to be but now that the Independence Day festivities are over with, you can get back on track and get some things sorted out. The earth Grand Trine alignment will help you greatly due to your Ruler Mercury occupying your sector of Thinking/Communicating, in the sign of Leo. You will be able to speak your truth without waffling and trying to please.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): A glorious Grand Trine in water signs interlocks with a beautiful Grand Trine in earth signs. This puts the earth back under your feet and helps you solidify plans for a journey you’ve been looking forward to. It appears this is a journey of a spiritual nature such as a spiritual retreat or a tour of ancient sites/temples. In any case, this week will deepen your faith, whatever belief system you ascribe to. It looks like you’re also experimenting with new culinary adventures, which is always fun. This is a terrific period of time for you!
Leo (July 23-August 22): Two Grand Trines (one earth, one water) create propulsion for you now. All of the elements to make steam are there for you, so you will either be angry about something or resolved to make a move in some direction; steam will be your source of energy. This week you will want to be firm and have courage in your convictions. You’re not normally indecisive but something big is around the corner; you may be afraid of failure, but where does that get anyone? Powerful Venus is in your sector of Finances/Resources and is a player in the Earth Grand Trine. She’s the key player for you now. The power is within you!
Virgo (August 23-September 21): There is a lot going on! Venus has moved into your sign, giving you a boost of self-esteem and since she is part of a Grand Trine in earth signs, you’re in a position to make great strides now! An interlocking Grand Trine in water signs works like a well-oiled machine for you now, giving you the resolve to finish tasks, pick up what you’ve put off and get things sorted. It’s a good and powerful time for you so take full advantage of it! Your Ruler Mercury in your sector of Endings/New Beginnings will be of great help now..
Libra (September 22 – October 23): You air signs have been at a bit of a loss, but now a lovely Grand Trine in earth signs helps you get grounded and stop engaging in impossible tasks. Venus has moved into your sector of Endings/New Beginnings and this placement is part of the Grand Trine in earth signs. The benefit for you is that you will be able to move ahead with tangible results now and stop a bad habit or unlearn something that hasn’t been working for you. Being appreciative of beauty, you might be spurred to new heights if you’re involved in the arts.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22): Some powerful alignments have you on the alert; a Grand Trine in water involves Jupiter in your sign and widens your scope in terms of things to lock onto and take action on. An interlocking Grand Trine in earth signs gives you the signs along the way to follow that are tangible and clear. If you’re on a mission, your path should be fairly clear cut. Venus has moved into your sector of Friends/Goals and encouragement from those closest to you will provide you with the feeling of having a solid base. This is a powerful week for you, so use it to your advantage.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): This week will take some effort to sort through fact and fiction. Venus is now in your sector of Career/Ultimate Potential and her influence on you is to do better no matter the cost. Be careful with that though, because you could overdo it in your enthusiasm and hurt yourself. Two interlocking Grand Trines (one in water, one in earth) can use your fire to generate steam, and this could make for a quite romantic time, a period of propulsion or a steaming anger that, gone unchecked and unresolved, could blow like a pressure cooker. Keep calm and deal with things as they come up. This could really get you ahead if you play it carefully.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): A Grand Trine in earth signs raises your spirits because there certainly is something in it for you! Your Ruler Saturn, Venus and Uranus are involved in this alignment and get you rolling on something that will make you unstoppable! Interlocking is a second Grand Trine in water signs. This helps you reassess your boundaries, tune into yourself more than is normal and pull in intuitive and gut feelings that you normally minimize because you deal with facts more than intangible feelings. An adventurous week for you, trying our your tools you don’t use very often!
Aquarius (January 21 – February 20): Two interlocking Grand Trines make for an interesting period for you now due to them being in earth and water. Mars in your sign is now retrograde and will back into an opposition with Mercury again in about a week, so be sure you’re on the up and up with your communication and followups because you’ll likely be called in it with the Grand Trine in earth making you accountable. Venus plays a big role in this Grand Trine in earth acting from your sector of Shared Assets. Steady as she goes!
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): Two interlocking Grand Trines (one earth, one water) heighten your senses and give you some “Ah ha!” moments. These influences will keep your ideas and dreams in check as far as how realistic they are to achieve. Sometimes you go off in two directions (or more) and do a bit of this and a bit of that but accomplish nothing. During this period of time you’ll be able to focus. If you’re in the process of dating someone, things could turn serious due to powerful Venus occupying your sector of Relationships and being a player in the earth Grand Trine. Eyes open, forward march!
