An extraordinarily powerful manifestation opportunity radiates abundance with the peak of the Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine. This is reinforced by the climax of its supporting Mars-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine!
Mercury retrograde ends, opening a 48-hour initiation window, and Uranus retrograde begins. Free your mind with a peaking Mercury-Uranus-Pluto T-Square, and proceed with caution as a volatile Mars-Uranus-Pluto T-Square fires up!
Magical assistance is available in your relationships, creativity and finances with Venus quintile Saturn. With Venus in Leo, this aspect can also lend support to creative performances.
Vesta squares Saturn and quincunxes Neptune today. You might experience challenge or confusion relating to a selfless cause you’re devoted to. But this is also the perfect time to clarify your vision of how you want to contribute to this worthy venture!
Uranus will be retrograde for exactly five months, today through 12/17. Reflect on what’s unique about you, and how you can serve the collective with your special gifts.
Planets are most powerful when changing directions. As Uranus stations at 12°31′ Aries, its energy will be felt with special power by everything between 9° and 16° of the cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.
Does Uranus aspect sensitive points in your natal chart in these ranges as it stations? If so, stand ready to embrace paradigm shifts in the life areas represented by those points. This is especially true if you get an intuitive flash, Uranus’ calling card, requesting the shift.
The “Grand Trine of Manifestation” – an equilateral triangle formed by Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune – peaks today as Jupiter forms exact trines to Saturn and Neptune. This is the most perfect manifestation moment I’ve ever seen in the sky!
Are you not yet doing Law of Attraction work to manifest what you want in your life? Then I’d start tomorrow after 2:22 pm eastern as Mercury goes direct. If you’re already visualizing, some extra effort today could pay major dividends!
You still have another month to work this energy. This Grand Trine lasts until 8/16.
The aspects Jupiter makes today also have additional meanings. The Jupiter-Saturn trine can powerfully boost productivity, discipline and accomplishment. The Jupiter-Neptune trine can amplify your ability to attain deeper states of divine consciousness and receive fresh creative inspiration.
Mercury Retrograde Ends
Mercury, retrograde since 6/26, turns direct at 2:22 PM. The decks are now clear for new initiatives and major purchases.
However, new ventures are best started under a waxing Moon. Since the Moon goes full in 48 hours (7/22, 2:15 pm), I recommend proceeding promptly!
Mars-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine Peaks
Your Law of Attraction projects receive a third turbocharge this week as another aspect pattern peaks. This Mars-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine, active through 8/1, is strongly amplifying the power of the Jupiter-Saturn Neptune Grand Trine that peaked on 7/17. Embody Mars’ archetypal power as the warrior, pioneer, initiator and entrepreneur!
Mars makes two aspects today. While these are included in its Grand Trine, they also carry additional meanings. (If these sound similar to the Jupiter trine interpretations on 7/17, it’s because they are!)
A Mars-Neptune trine smoothly flows fresh energy to your spiritual union practices and divinely inspired creativity. And Mars’ trine to Saturn can increase your discipline, endurance and productivity.
Grand Trines aren’t the only aspect patterns making themselves felt this week. The Mercury-Uranus-Pluto T-Square that started on 7/9 peaks today. As I wrote on 7/9, “Consider even those truths you hold to be self-evident to be open to revision.” To borrow a tagline from the Matrix movies: “Free your mind!”
Mars, not content with just bringing a Grand Trine to a peak today, kicks off a new T-square. Like all the T-squares we’ve seen recently, it includes the revolutionary Uranus-Pluto square. This T-Square peaks on 7/29 and ends on 8/7.
Mars, Uranus and Pluto all have a reputation for intensity and volatility. So this challenging T-Square should be handled with great care! Definitely try to avoid situations where volatility or violence could flare up. If appropriate, brush up on your own anger management skills.
To make the best use of this T-square, take immediate action on your intuitive flashes. And if you’re ready, release everything that does not contribute to your evolution and awakening.
With Mars in Cancer, it might be a good time to transform how you’re relating with some of your family members. What can you do to create greater harmony in your interactions?
Pallas Athena transits Cancer today through 9/11. To piggyback on a theme from yesterday’s forecast, is it about time that you finally stood up to an overly dominating family member? It should now be easier to embody this asteroid goddess’ warrior spirit!
It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.
7/15, 11:19 pm – 7/16, 10:26 am (Scorpio)
7/18, 7:13 am – 1:56 pm (Sagittarius)
7/20, 11:00 am – 2:40 pm (Capricorn)
