Mercury in Aquarius Square Jupiter in Taurus; Venus in Capricorn Trine Uranus in Taurus

I’ve highlighted the two top alignments for the week since they are quite strong and close at hand.

Mercury in electric Aquarius moves into a difficult angle to Jupiter in Taurus, but this isn’t a really difficult transit because it involves Jupiter, who is largely benevolent. This influence creates optimism, the downside being inattention to detail because the optimism can make us sloppy.

Venus in Capricorn is in a beautiful alignment to Uranus in Taurus and this is an interesting blend of spontaneity, reckless behavior in love, work or health, and unexpected occurrences largely in our favor (and in spite of ourselves).

Should be an interesting week!

In the big picture, we are already seeing the effects of Pluto in Aquarius if you’ve been paying attention to the news; what appears to be small has far reaching effects but what is receiving the most attention is what affects the ratings. A lot of wrangling going on right now. Keep an ear to the ground. . 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.
