Blessings to all! What a surcharged day this is. We have 3 Grand Trines in the sky, bringing together the elements of Wind, Fire and (Black Earth), involving The North Node (8 Libra) – Ceres (7 Aquarius) – Mercury (6 Gemini) / Sun (15 Taurus) – Pluto Retrograde (15 Capricorn) – Lilith (17 Virgo) / Juno + Jupiter (11-13 Leo) – Uranus (18 Aries) – Moon + Great Attractor (14 Sagittarius) .
We also have the powerful Vesta (17 Pisces) -Black Moon Lilith (17 Virgo) opposition, along with the Venus (28 Gemini) – Pallas Athena Retrograde (29 Sagittarius) opposition.
Trine energy, as I understand it, is the promise of energetic amplification. It is neither a ‘good’ thing, or a ‘bad’ thing. It simply means that there is an abundance of energy that can be used for whatever purpose you wish.
Grand Trines look like equal-sided (equilateral) triangles in the sky, and they provide an even more intense connection between 3 energies that mutually amplify and interact with one another.
We have 3 Grand Trines in the sky – briefly – here’s what each teaches us:
(1) Air – North Node/Ceres/Mercury: The Grand Air Trine asks us to consider our thoughts, ideas, and modes of communication – particularly with siblings – (Mercury in Gemini), our desire to nurture and be nurtured through/with friendship groups, associations for charitable causes, connecting with Cosmic Consciousness and so on (Ceres in Aquarius) and our Soul’s karmic trajectory (North Node). Watch your words, your desires, and your sense of mental balance at this time and see which doors they take you towards. Whether it’s a painful or a pleasurable experience, you’ll find your way towards a deeper sense of balance, potentially through a partnership in life, or at work, this time. The South Node (8 Aries) opposes the North Node, making this a natural Kite formation. The emphasis of the alignment lies upon the Nodes themselves – karmic dynamics are afoot.
(2) Black Earth – Sun/Pluto/Black Moon Lilith: The Taurus Sun places our focus upon securing material objects, relationships and states of being that make us feel secure, whilst Black Moon Lilith challenges the way we share that sense of stability with others through some kind of pathway of service. Pluto completes the alignment, challenging us to reflect upon what we define as a ‘legacy’ that we deem ‘sucessful’, ‘acceptable’, ‘legitimate’, and able to stand the test of time. The Black Earth Trine is a Shadow alignment, indicating that our choices are not made in the visible domain of the Conscious Self. It is the that which we ignore, displace or desperately seek to ignore now that calls out to us as we try to understand just what it is we wish to materially manifest into our lives.
(3) Fire – Moon + Great Attractor / Jupiter + Juno / Uranus: The Moon and The Great Attractor connect with one another in Sagittarius, lighting the Path for Teachers, Guides and Mentors that show you the way of the Mother/Feminine Spirit. You will be drawn irresistibly to them at this time, or find some teachers who do not resonate as wholly unpalatable. No either/or dynamics here. Jupiter and Juno do their dance in Leo, which re-emphasizes the role of joy, innocence, love, creativity, sensuality, romantic partners and children in our lives. Here is where we find blessings and pathways of abundance and guidance. Uranus in Aries electrifies our cosmic antennae, allowing us to bridge different levels of Awareness, from Within and Without. It is a powerful Grand Trine that will help us find the Truth of the Self – in Awareness, Expression and Exploration. Find your path by following/flowing with your passion!
Venus and Pallas Athena oppose one another in Gemini and Sagittarius respectively, Venus is about to enter Cancer, and so here, she begins to intensify her mental searching and yearning for answers at the celebral-intellectual level. Pallas is in Retrograde, exerting her power of assertiveness from within the psyche, in search of a greater sense of truth. You may find romantic encounters and/or materialistic concerns to actually require you to act from a place of philosophical/religious/academic/other paradigm in order to find an answer to an everyday situation involving a sibling or lover – or even your own sense of femininity. You may find some fine-tuning required in understanding and embodying your Path at this time.
Vesta and Lilith are also in opposition. Vesta in Pisces is essentially the Priestess on the Path of Formlessness (yippee), dissolving the need for form, structure and ritual. She’s giving up everything she knows, including what she understand as an institutionalized form of Priestesshood. She’s stripping away the layers of illusion and rhetoric that separate us from the Divine in any way. Black Moon Lilith on the other hand is seeking to work through the shadow layers of projection and do what must be done. Even if it’s not glamorous, even if it seems like you’re doing something beneath yourself (in the eyes of others). She’s finding a way to make the material sacred once more, and with it, the relationship of the Feminine and element/nature/space of Earth. Either way, the Priestess (Vesta/Virgo) dynamic is at work, as is shadow-work (BM Lilith) and a transcendent sense of spiritual connection (Pisces). – Sexy, heavy, and powerful stuff..!
So, all in all – today is a tremendously powerful day for manifesting just about anything. Be mindful of your deepest desires and your conscious ones, and go ahead with your best foot forward!
