Grand Trine Divine – Astrology update

“One of the most poetic facts I know about the universe is that essentially every atom in your body was once inside a star that exploded. Moreover, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than those in your right. We are all, literally, star children, and our bodies made of stardust.”  From the book “A Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather than Nothing” by physicist Lawrence Krauss.

Given that we’re all made of stardust – and matter and energy are intimately interconnected – transforming back and forth, back and forth – matter to energy to matter to energy…… OF COURSE we are intimately energetically connected with our planetary system.  A birth chart is a fountain of information – helping us to perceive and appreciate the energetic patterns and cycles of our lives!!

Wonderful Planetary Configuration this Week!

This week, a special energetic configuration of harmony is building toward the full moon which will occur this Thursday, March 8.   This configuration is called a “Grand Trine” (equilateral triangle) occurring with the three of the Earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.   Whatever chart you have –  this configuration can move your dreams and plans forward in tangible ways.

A grand trine between orbiting planets is uncommon.  The last ones we experienced were in 2004 and before that – in 1967.  This current triangle of compatible earth energies can stimulate us to take action that’s practical and tangible.  So, for example, it’s a good time to ask for a raise, send off resumes, begin a new health regimen, move a project forward, etc.

Mars in Virgo is part of the Grand Trine and can and will energize this configuration. Since Mars happens to be moving in retrograde (slowing down relative to Earths’s motion) – this is a good time to review plans, fine tune them and then put them into action.

Let’s Now Look at Each Part of this Grand Trine

Mars in Virgo is in harmony with Jupiter and Venus in Taurus– it’s an opportune time to move any plans forward.  It’s also excellent for social events as well as travel.   Jupiter and Venus in Taurus can bring tangible benefits to our finances, relationships and greatly enhance appreciation of the beautiful.

Jupiter and Venus in Taurus in harmony with Pluto in Capricorn, can stimulate our “spiritual leadership” capacities to shine through, as well as attract success at work, in health and healing, and naturally allow relationships to deepen.

Pluto in Capricorn in harmony with Mars in Virgo – is excellent for launching new projects, programs, and personal activities.  It can support us with their strength – Now is the time to ACT.   Pluto and Mars will be in harmony all month as Jupiter and Venus quickly move away from this triangle.

Depending on our individual charts – we all have the great good fortune to experience these opportunities in various areas of our lives.  For example, in one of my friend’s charts – she has Pluto in her second house of finance, Jupiter and Venus in her 6th house of health and work and Mars in her 10th house of career!  This is an amazing week for her advancing her career and making her organization more known in the world.  She’s scheduled to do a keynote address at an international conference – on March 9!

Mercury Retrograde – March 12 – April 4, 2012.

Mercury, the planet of communication is in Aries and will be moving retrograde from March 12 – April 4.   It will return to the sign of Pisces for three weeks beginning on March 24 before re-entering Aries on April 17th.

When Mercury is in Aries – communication can be brusque, speaking before thinking, spontaneous and looking for the bottom line.  When Mercury is in Pisces – the energy of communication is more intuitive, vague and tending toward story telling.  The usual advice applies whenever Mercury goes retrograde: Back up all your electronic systems, take a good book with you in case travel is delayed at airports, etc.  And it’s a good time to review and re-evaluate your priorities.

Uranus Squaring Pluto

We still have the configuration of Pluto making a challenging angle to Uranus – on and off for the next three years.  It’s a time of breakdown of the old, of the ineffectual, of weak foundations and breakthroughs to a whole new beginning. I’ve heard from a number of people who feel “reborn” including me!!  Major inner shifts can transform our old tapes to having fresh ideas and new and clear intentions.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please call or email me and share your news!  Let’s celebrate the new and release what is no longer working for us.

Keep looking up!!

Kudos to us all!
