We have 4 amazing SUPER GRAND TRINES happening this month, starting day of the NEW MOON July 8th at 3:14 AM EDT at 16 degrees in Cancer as Sun/Moon joins Saturn and Neptune in Harmony allowing us to complete some unfinished business before moving on to a new cycle! New Moon is about setting new plans when it comes to family/security/foundation. Jupiter is next on the Grand Trine as it is now in the water sign of Cancer until July 2014, will be in a harmonious time aspect with both Saturn (Scorpio) and Neptune (Pisces), while Saturn/Neptune also in trine aspect. Jupiter is about expansion and growth through learning from experience while gaining wisdom. We are being guided with great encouragement to experience our visions and inspirations with steady and practical application, remembering to feel our way through the process of working towards our dreams. We are being shown we have the wisdom to make this a reality, while learning that it starts with the CORE in who we believe we are and are capable of achieving. The more we can challenge false belief systems and be diligent with our desires, the more we will honour our personal principles in what we feel is the right thing to do. This is a call for TRUE faith. And with this true faith comes Mars, allowing us to take ACTION as it joins Jupiter and creates the THIRD and FOURTH GRAND TRINE, allowing us to embody the FUEL of desire for experience. We take action in what feels right, following our intuition FIRST and then allowing the steady, practical application to take place. We must take responsibility for what we understand to be right for ourselves, and for all those involved (family/partnerships/community) before taking action. And while we take action, we continue adjust accordingly. These four GRAND TRINES are all in water signs, which rule the house signs of rewards. Trust that the gifts will come! These grand trines are most strongly influenced on July 8th and then again July 17-22nd. Anyone with an ASC, Sun, Moon or any other natal planets within 10-20 degrees in Cancer will be feeling these energies the most, in different ways depending on their personal birth chart.
The challenging part of this New Moon is that is strongly influenced by the planet Pluto which deals with purging, fears, truths, secrets, confrontations, transformation and harshness where this New Moon (Sun/Moon) will forming 2 T square with Pluto and Uranus. There is bound to be confrontations that deal with past/present/and future issues along with a feeling of harshness towards getting our wants/needs met. Uranus brings a hyper/nervous energy as it is in Sun/Moon square and then with that brings some anxiety or restlessness that can manifest in power struggles. It can be quite intense as many of us with a strong Uranus/Pluto influence will feel much resistance. We are asked to release this resistance, the more we are awakening to the truth of the matters that surround us. This could be a good enough reason not to push matters to hard that will cause more damage than good. It can be very easy to let pride get in the way of opening our hearts with letting strong negative emotions interfere with our goal of being nurturing, caring, loving, and sympathetic. We are being asked to make fundamental changes in our lives, especially around family/home/habits/lifestyle/security/health/ while letting go of old structures in our everyday lives that are hurting us more than healing. There is a strong pull for drastic changes and with Uranus I always state, “expect the unexpected” and with the New (dark) Moon things are not so obvious at first hand, so faith is in order. New Beginnings sometimes means doing things the hard way – the path of MOST resistance in order to relinquish what the resistance is trying to teach us in the first place. It means we have to hold on tight on this roller coaster ride, but also surrendering the need for having any control over the ride itself. FEEL the resistance, but do not fight it. Feeling fear may be inevitable, but what a great motivator it can be! This is a wake- up call to see where true power and freedom resides. We cannot change the past, so we might as well come to terms with some aspect of it that still haunts us while seeing the LIGHT in the present which gives hope for the future. With Venus in trine with Uranus, this is enough for us to stay focused on what our true desires are for manifesting change that can be most satisfying. With Saturn going direct on this day of the New Moon – we better be READY to take personal responsibility for our part in empowering your feelings in whatever unfolds!
Much Love and Light,
