 Mercury and Mars in Capricorn, Trine Jupiter in Taurus; Venus in Sagittarius Square Neptune in Pisces; Pluto Enters Aquarius on Saturday, Loose Square to Jupiter

As Mars finishes his beautiful alignment to Jupiter, Mercury begins his and communication flows in a big way due to Jupiter’s expansive nature. Our words carry more power now, so let’s choose them wisely!

Venus is in a difficult position to Neptune for a few days and this can wreak havoc with our love life and our sense of self-worth due to the illusions that swirl around us from Neptune’s influence. This alignment deals with our weaknesses and insecurities, so it’s time to breathe deep and stand tall.

The biggest news, and I mean BIGGEST, is Pluto moving into Aquarius for good on Saturday. Pluto will remain in Aquarius for two decades and this marks a generational shift as well as a collective shift in thinking. Pluto rules the collective consciousness and under Pluto’s influence in Capricorn, much of the focus was on governmental institutions’ and the politics of same. Pluto in Aquarius marks a consciousness focused on humanitarianism, technology, innovation, rebellion against the norm.. It’s going to be very interesting to see how those born under Pluto in Aquarius turn out. The last time Pluto was in Aquarius was from 1778 to 1798. During that time, The Bill of Rights was ratified, the French Revolution began and the cotton gin was invented, and the war of Independence between the American colonies and Great Britain ended.

Pluto will be in a loose (six degree), difficult alignment to Jupiter that has an effect on the collective; the effect is ambition to achieve more than ever before and the drive to go for it. Unless your actions are ethical, you are likely to arouse a great amount of resistance or provoke conflict. Another way this alignment manifests is the urge to repair, restore or rebuild..

It can be easy to become obsessed with a plan or course of action during this Pluto/Jupiter alignment so it’s essential to be willing to reexamine your ideas of right or wrong and don’t get sloppy about it. 

This is a very exciting time! Let’s see what happens!

Keep looking up, stay healthy, and…

Keep looking after each other!

Who is Triana?

Triana is a professional astrologer and amateur astronomer who has had a lifelong love for the stars and planets, mythology, philosophy and science.

Due to her mother’s interest in astrology and metaphysics, Triana had access to a large library growing up and cut her teeth on Aesop’s Fables, a set of the Classics that her grandfather gave her and Greek mythology. By the time she was in the 6th grade she was playing with astrology and reading charts for her friends at school. 

Upon completing her university studies in biochemistry, Triana relocated to the United Kingdom in 1988 and began to study the patterns of the stars recorded in the landscape of Great Britain in the form of stone monuments. Using survey maps and a compass, Triana made her way from the islands of Scotland down to Cornwall and made good use of British astrology books and astrological groups and congresses led by the top astrologers of the 20th century. By the time she was 35, Triana’s own style of interpreting the angles and aspects of the planets began to emerge. She began to receive serious attention in the UK for her astrological prowess and she flourished.

In 1996 Triana found success in writing weekly horoscopes through a small newspaper on Lopez Island, WA. Fairly quickly her name spread and her clientele increased, enabling her to travel to different places in Washington State to give presentations and conduct personal readings. Her clientele spanned from the UK to Canada as well as the United States. Visitors came to Lopez Island from afar as she herself became a destination in the islands.

Triana has been featured on television, radio and in newspapers in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the UK. 

Her weekly column can be found on sanjuanislander.com and she can be reached at triana.elan@gmail.com.
