We are experiencing a powerful Grand Fire Trine involving The Great Attractor – a gravitational anomaly in space denser than the mass of 1000 trillion Suns, located in a fairly mysterious zone in the Cosmos known as the ‘Zone of Avoidance’. Whenever the Great Attractor (14 Sagittarius) is activated in a chart, we see issues surrounding belief systems, paradigms, religions, world-views, long-distance travel , issues surrounding visas, citizenship and the like become heavily emphasized – be it in the news of the day, or in the life-cycle of one who has this point strongly aspected in their charts. The Great Attractor takes no hostages, and often leads to the expression of information or perspectives that can be sharply polarizing – it leads to a ‘love it or hate it’ type of response by fairly large groups of people. It is not a private revelation, but one that involves the masses and their reactions in one form or another.

In short, whenever the Great Attractor is activated, Truth – of one form or another – comes sharply into focus and is revealed in a very public, often polarizing, manner. The Sun’s trine to this spot in the Cosmos illuminates these truths in ways that make them impossible to avoid processing at the conscious level.

Whilst the energy of Sagittarius can reflect the Guru/Wise Mentor/Teacher/Wisdom Speaker Archetype, it can equally reflect the religious zealot, the bigot, the fire-and-brimstone-preacher calling for the picketing of funerals, the self-righteous proselytizer – and so on.

We see this reflected in two major news items dominating global headlines: Donald Trump’s performance in the Republican presidential debate in the USA and the confirmation of the remains of MH 370, a long-distance flight, in the Indian Ocean. Bear in mind that Sagittarius’ energy in the astrological paradigm explicitly focuses upon things like politico-ideological debates, and long-distance travel.

In news coverage of the Republican presidential debate, we see Mr. Trump projected as the ‘dominant’ presence, his views capturing center-stage and provoking intense commentary and attention. His views have been sharply criticized even within the party for portraying Latino minorities and women in ways many would find deeply offensive. Some within the party see him as a joke, whilst others consider him as a real prospect for the Presidency. Either way, he’s powerfully projecting (and being projected upon) with his brand of ‘Truth’, his understanding of the world as he sees it. And, as indicative of the Great Attractor, his views have captured the attention of the public, eliciting a mixed bag of responses.

We see a similar intensity of public interest, a revelation of truth and discord in its interpretation in the discovery and confirmation of wreckage of the MH 370 flight bound to China found off the coast of Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean announced just yesterday. It’s a tragic time for families as they refuse to believe the confirmation given to them, still having so many unanswered questions. Airlines seats, parts of windows and a wing have been recovered so far. The French government is also stepping in to provide air and sea support to further the search for debris and clues as to what transpired on board the plane in its final hours. The relatives of some of the passengers on MH 370 in China have clashed with local police in front of the Malaysian Embassy.

In both cases, we see the theme of ‘Truth Revealed’ – but the question is, really, whose Truth? And is it seen as valid? Such is the nature of the Great Attractor.

The Great Attractor (14 Sagittarius) is trined the following bodies at this time, creating a Grand Fire Trine: The Sun (14 Leo), Rhiphonos – the setter of boundaries (13 Leo), Hygeia – the Goddess of Health and Healing (14 Leo), Eros – our Intimate connection with all of Creation (14 Leo), Vesta – The Priestess (13 Aries – preparing for Her Retrograde). It lies in proximity to Varda – The Mistress of the Stars (15 Sagittarius) and Pallas Athena – The Warrior Goddess, Healer and Strategist (11 Sagittarius).

There are various bodies at play in this alignment – and what jumps out as being of greatest relevance to me is the role of The Sun – and as part of a broader cosmic shift – an intense focus on Goddess / Priestess archetypes (more on that here: ).

The Sun represents the Light of Awareness on the Unknown (Great Attractor), resulting in Revelation of some Vision of Truth. Much as a spotlight, in the dark, cannot reveal the full picture – it is important for us to remember that we see a version of Truth emerging at this time. Others will undoubtedly have different understandings of the same. We need not accept others’ Paths as our own, but my suggestion to you would be to accept and acknowledge every being’s right to choose the Path that seems truest for themselves. That includes you πŸ™‚ !

Those with placements of 7-21 degrees of Aries, Leo, Sagittarius – you’ll feel this energy working powerfully through your charts. Those with placements between 7-21 degrees of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius (all together) will experience this as a Grand Sextile, or Star of David Alignment. That will be a powerful portal for manifesting whatever intent you align yourself with at this time, so handle that energy wisely.

Blessings to All,

  1. Whilst the energy of Sagittarius can reflect the Guru/Wise Mentor/Teacher/Wisdom Speaker Archetype, it can equally reflect the religious zealot….Dr. Bairavee- Do you say this because the Universe is of Duality? So anything / astrologically speaking- can swing either way?
    Thank You! Jill
