June 17-23 2013 Weekly Astrology Forecast: Summer of Abundance!

money tree - June 17-23 2013 Weekly Astrology Forecast: Summer of Abundance!

The “Summer of Abundance” begins this week with a two-month Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine. Law of Attraction work is powerfully supported!

Other major events include the Summer Solstice and a surprisingly inspiring Capricorn Full Moon. And be sure to follow those intuitive flashes as Mars sextiles Uranus!

6/17 (Mon)

You can act on your intuitive flashes with greater dynamic ease as Mars sextiles Uranus. With Mars in Gemini, you may also catch lots of great ideas!

6/18 (Tue)

Relations with your domestic partner may require some adjustment with Cancerian Venus quincunx Juno. Keeping your heart open will help this process flow.

Two-Month Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine

One of the summer’s most important (and fortunate!) astrological events kicks off today, peaks on 7/17, and ends on 8/16. Welcome to a two-month Grand Trine (equilateral triangle) formed by Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune.

Whenever Neptune and Saturn connect, the Law of Attraction is empowered. In this context, Neptune represents visualization and imagination. Saturn represents crystallization and physical manifestation. So for most of the summer, holding the vision of what you want to attract into your life receives special empowerment.

This Grand Trine is in the water signs. So visualizations that relate to family, nurturing and security (Jupiter in Cancer), transformation, sacred sexuality and occult practices (Saturn in Scorpio) and spiritual union and divinely inspired creativity (Neptune in Pisces) receive extra support.

To receive maximum benefit, trines and Grand Trines must be activated by your intention and action. So don’t fall prey to Lazy Trine Syndrome. “Mine your trines” for maximum benefit!

Sun-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine

The Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine is further empowered by a second Grand Trine, also starting today. This one also features Saturn and Neptune, with the Sun joining Jupiter in its corner.

The Grand Trine involving the Sun peaks on 6/26 and ends on 7/4. The Sun adds vitality to the Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine and helps you personally embody its energy.

6/19 (Wed)

The Sun conjoins Jupiter in late Gemini today. This transmits a “last hurrah” blast of support for learning and communication before both planets move into Cancer. It can also add some luck and good fortune to all your activities.

Hard angles between Mars and Chiron, such as today’s square, often trigger old wounds. As challenging life events bring buried emotions up to be cleared, this healing invocation may help you. With Mars in Gemini, this aspect also supports mentoring and counseling.

6/20 (Thu)

Harmonious communication, especially between family members, is supported with a Mercury-Venus conjunction in Cancer. Enhanced inspiration is also available for your creative writing and thinking.

6/21 (Fri)

The Sun enters Cancer today, initiating the Summer Solstice at 1:04 AM. For the next month, the themes of domesticity, family, nurturing and security will be empowered.

6/22 (Sat)

Ceres, a significator of abundance, transits Leo today through 8/28. During this time, the judicious use of calculated risk can be rewarded. Also observe how much of your self-esteem is dependent on the applause and approval of others.

With Venus conjunct Vesta, see how much pleasure you can take in serving a selfless cause. With both planets in Cancer, you may be able to bring more heart-centered nurturing to the object of your devotion.

6/23 (Sun)

June’s Full Moon shines forth today at 7:32 AM (2°09′ Capricorn). Check how “full-filled” you are with your career, reputation, discipline, maturity, responsibility and time management. Make adjustments as needed.

This lunation forms a Kite aspect pattern that includes Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune as well as the Sun and Moon. This further amplifies the extraordinary manifestation potential of the Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine discussed above.

This Full Moon’s Sabian Symbol is, “The human soul, in its eagerness for new experiences, seeks embodiment.” This symbol reminds us to remember what we really are: pure awareness, indestructible and eternal. The more you consciously operate as the divine being that you truly are, the less the challenges of this human incarnation will cause you suffering. To experience this firsthand, try this invocation.

Void-of-Course Moons

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.

6/18, 11:56 pm – 6/19, 2:40 am (Scorpio)
6/20, 3:17 pm – 6/21, 4:32 am (Sagittarius)
6/23, 3:09 am – 4:10 am (Capricorn)

Whatever your Sun Sign, Benjamin’s forecasts can help you make the best use of the current astrological energies.

Events are most powerful on the dates listed, but their influence will be active for at least several days before and after. Everyone is affected by these global transits. However, you will be most powerfully impacted when moving planets activate sensitive points in your natal chart.

All dates and times are in the U.S. eastern time zone.
