Grand Sextile – Magic Window

Grand Sextile – Magic Window

When planets align at a 120 degree angle, they form a trine.  When three form, you form a triangle, or a Grand Trine. Jupiter, Saturn, & Neptune are still forming their Grand-Trine in Water, which is scheduled to last well into August.  All three are relatively slow-moving planets, so this aspect will continue its affect for quite a while.  They are each positioned in one of the water signs, so the emotional tides of the whole world are experiencing the benefits of this harmony.  One astrologer referred to the effect as “The end of hope, and the beginning of truth.  A great awakening.”

So what’s all this talk about a Grand Sextile?  Well… Venus and Pluto have been trine to each-other for a little while, now.  But on Monday, July 29th, the Moon will move into position in Taurus, to form a Grand Trine. All three in the earth-signs.  The Grand-Trine in Water is joined by a Grand-Trine in Earth. Both earth and water are feminine, so the result is a Feminine Grand Sextile, pictured below in gold… [Read more…]

Full Buck Moon – July 22, 2013

Full Buck Moon – July 22, 2013

Full Buck Moon: Jul 22, 1:16 P.M. (CST) is at 0º Aquarius 06′

Aquarius Full MoonJuly is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Other names for this month’s Moon is the Full Hay Moon, in India, the July full moon is known as Guru Purnima and the Buddhist Sinhala call it Esala Poya. In China, it is the Hungry Ghost Moon. The Celts called it the Claiming Moon, some Neo Pagans call it the Rose Moon, and Wiccans the Mead moon.

On the Cusp

This FullMoon is on the cusp of Aquarius.  This means that the Moon has just moved into Aquarius, from Capricorn.  Also, the Sun has just entered Leo, so the energy right now is very crisp & new.  Mercury has finally gone direct (after being retrograde for several weeks), and the Sun & Moon are both settling into new signs.  So be ready for a refreshing change of pace.

From the Fringe

The Full Moon pulls the energy of Leo through Aquarius, to bring us a bright ray of social consciousness.  We will notice more acceptance of the non-traditional,  and even feel drawn to it.  Those who may be considered on the fringe of society may attract the attention they need by acting out.  So if that’s you, try not to go overboard.  Anything you can do to feel more secure & calm will help interactions go more smoothly.  Alienating others can be kinda fun, but it doesn’t really benefit in the long run.

If you’re the recipient of outre behavior, try to be patient & accepting.  There may be a healing process in progress.

All of us should make a point of enjoying the ride.  This is a fantastic time to explore different cultures & traditions, and partake of all the flavors of life that the world has to offer.  Celebrate diversity!

Walk in Beauty

Our Leo Sun is also semisexile Venus in Virgo.  Semisextile is generally considered to be a “minor” aspect, but the orb is very tight at this point, giving it a much stronger influence.  This combination is all about taste, style, diplomacy, and charm.  It should help us to express our own uniqueness in a manner that others can actually appreciate.  It should also add to our ability to enjoy the beauty of each other’s differences.

This is a fantastic time for any FengShui or organizational/placement changes you may have been thinking about.  Beauty through organization… its all about the presentation.
