Grand Trine!

Now we are plummeting down the path of summer to Labor Day weekend, when folks go home and we have the last 3 day weekend before the Holiday Season. Wow, time has flown by!

This week sees a glittering Grand Trine (the most harmonious of all aspects) in Earth signs, so people born under the signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn will be the happy campers this week even though this Grand Trine brings good stuff to everyone since Jupiter is involved in the sign of Taurus. This is a powerhouse aspect, and I suggest we all use it for a celebration of some kind. Whatever it is, no matter how big or small, celebrate! Have a barbecue, a dinner party, go to whatever fair is within range and look around at your fellow humans and smile. We’re made of strong stuff even if we pretend we’re not.

The New Moon in the sign of Virgo is part of this Grand Trine, so this is about letting go and downsizing.

Aries (March 21- April 19): This gorgeous super Grand Trine in Earth signs puts you on solid ground! After so much extreme chaos and uncertainty, we get to have a week of some semblance of order, cooperation and a feeling of the Earth back under the feet. Enough head-bashing, now! As you say sayonara to summer and grab the three day weekend, don’t forget to write!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Okay, Little Bull, that feeling of relief is real! A beautiful super Grant Trine in Earth signs pleases you so much you just don’t know what to do! Hopefully you have something marvelous planned for the long weekend because you’ll love the time to just chill out and do as little as possible. This Grand Trine may have your creativity moving you, though…know that it is, finally, okay to go!

Gemini (May 21- June 20): The Grand Trine in Earth will either tie you down at home with a cold or see you rearranging stuff like crazy. It’s all or nothing with you, so pick your extreme and go for it with gusto! Your ideas are able to manifest themselves now, so get a move-on and if you’ve been putting something off, get it done now because you’ll be happy with the speed it takes. Have some great social time, too!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): The Grand Trine in Earth offsets some aggravating aspects in Cardinal signs, so if something upends it will get corrected quickly. This is good! Plans you have for the near future will take hold and have you smiling and full of energy for the push forward. The New Moon in your sector of communication/thinking bodes well for you and is part of the Grand Trine, so look for your spirit to be refilled as you consider your options!

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): This Grand Trine bodes well for you, igniting your sectors of finances, career/highest potential and health. If you have health problems, this is a good week to tackle them or to tweak what you are already doing to get the best and longest lasting results. No two ways about it, this has been a tough year for everyone in one way or another, but your sign is one that keeps moving forward, as we must. Give yourself a pat on the back for grace under pressure!

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 21): A lovely Grand Trine in Earth signs soothes your nerves and helps you focus now. Coming out of a wild retrograde Mercury and all that goes with it, you’re eyeing something you had to ditch earlier and with this strong and supportive Grand Trine, you’ll find that you’re able to pick it up again with ease, right where you left off. The New Moon in your sign helps you let go of angst and move forward again. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is, so don’t procrastinate!

Libra (Sept. 22 – Oct. 23): You may be reeling from recent events, but the Grand Trine in Earth signs seeks to help you regain your balance at speed. This week is excellent for withdrawing from drama/crisis/angst and delegating so that you can refill your tanks. Some things are ending and changing but if you keep a sharp watch on your own mind, you’ll see that roles change, our sense of identity changes, and you are changing. Use these changes as a source of new strength.

Scorpio (Oct. 24- Nov. 22): The Grand Trine in Earth is a welcome relief for you! So soon after such a tumultuous few months, you have a place to focus and something tangible to focus on! Isn’t it nice when things stay still for a minute? The New Moon in your sector of Friends/Goals clears the way for new ground to be broken as well as bad habits. There is plenty to keep you busy and in a way that feels really good!

Sagittarius (Nov. 23 – Dec. 20): The Grand Trine in Earth gets you back on track now as you rally from recent events that set you back. August has been a month of recovery of sorts, and it’s possible you’ve had to spend more money than you wanted to, on things you didn’t really want to have to spend it on! But this week and the 3 day weekend are set up to give you fun and frolic as summer begins to give way to Fall. Make the best of every day!

Capricorn (Dec. 21 – Jan. 20): The Grand Trine in Earth involves your sign since transformative Pluto occupies Capricorn; this is a time of ease, so take full advantage of it to recharge, recover, and just generally regroup. The Cardinal Grand Crosses we’ve endured may have knocked you flat but now the healing begins and is bolstered by several planets. This is good! Gather your good people for an exchange of genuine goodwill and cheer, kick off your shoes and put your feet up!

Aquarius (Jan. 21 – Feb. 20): Known as the proverbial harbinger of something chaotic, this Grand Trine in Earth signs soothes your nerves and gives you that wonderful feeling of having solid ground to stand on for the first time in a long time! Your ability to garner information is at its height now, so make the best use of what you know and keep an open mind for learning more. Jumping to conclusions will put an obstacle in your path that you really don’t need, so don’t do that!

Pisces (Feb. 21 – March 20): The Grand Trine in Earth gives you a sense of direction now, which is a welcome relief! You much prefer being like a river than a flood. Floods are messy. Rivers have a course and a destination and continually move, fed by water from on high in the mountains. This is a metaphor but you get the point! The New Moon in your sector of Relationship bodes well for you and makes you happy to have ended something.
