This week I’m writing a fast post. It is a holiday weekend and there is much I want to get done before I go back to work on Tuesday. Whatever you are doing this weekend, I wish you fun times, good friends, and safe travels.
This week begins with a Grand Trine in water. This pattern actually came together on the 24th of May and will last until June 6, 2018. Pluto will join this Grand Trine on Monday, May 28, 2018, to form a kite pattern. Powerful, good energy here.
Trines happen when two planets are 120 degrees from each other. A Grand Trine is formed when there are three planets that at 120 degrees of each other and together they form a triangle. These three planets are always, all in the same one of the four elements: earth, air, fire, and water.
Trines typically present us with an abundance of great opportunities. This pattern is all about compatibility and balance. Its characteristic energy is determined by the combination of planets and the signs it is made of.
This Grand Trine is in water. Water moves constantly. It is emotional, about life and death, and holds our soul’s secrets. In water, we learn how our emotions are connected to our family tree. This is exactly where I have been this week; connecting the dots the between my emotions and how they were instilled by my family of origin. Going deep into ourselves, evolving, awakening, allowing, and being willing to own what we find is not always the cake walk we would like it to be.
This Grand Trine peaks on June 1, 2018, and is supposed to provide us with safe space to explore our emotions as they come to the surface. However, this period is not without its moments of overwhelm. It is the overwhelm that inspires me this week to make this post short and spend more time in self-care.
Use this Grand Trine energy over the next 10 days to open yourself to any new ideas or perspective that come your way. I feel like most of my readers are open-minded people. However, even the most open-minded can have difficulty when it comes to a perspective that offends our values This is a great time to lead by example. Forgive the other and yourself for any conflicts. Turn to the more joyful, trusting, and romantic aspects of this energy. This is meant to be a generous and understanding 10 days.
Monday many of us will probably be feeling the Full Moon energy. The night before the Full Moon is one I that typically keeps me up most of the night. I am hoping this one is an exception.
Tuesday the Full moon will be in Sagittarius. This Moon will shine its light on higher learning, foreign travel, adventure, celebration, and growth of any kind.
The Sun also aspects Saturn. This energy can lead to a doubt or two when it comes to our self-confidence and knowing we are good enough. This can hold us back but now that you know what to expect, you can rise above this and not allow it to get you in a funk.
Wednesday, Venus aspects Uranus. Uranus leans his innovative, unconventional, and creative approach to our relationships and finances.
Wednesday also holds a Mercury in sextile aspect to Chiron. This energy will be excellent for communications. It can help us to be more willing to listen and more sensitive to the pain of those around us. Our words can be healing and comforting is we choose this path. At the very least, we could find we are more willing see a brighter side of things in general.
Friday Mercury will trine Mars. This brings us positive, enthusiastic communications. We might also notice that we are quite productive and busy today. Our thoughts are fast moving and spot on.
Mercury will also sesquiquadrate Uranus. This aspect is slightly counter to the Mercury/Mars trine. A sesquiquadrate is a minor aspect and formed when two planets are 135 degrees from each other. This particular combination will deal with communications or miscommunications, travel, quick change, and the unconventional.
Can we trust the words of others or ourselves? Will we say things we don’t mean? You never know what Uranus will inspire. It is all good so embrace it.
So there you have it. This week in a nutshell. This is the unofficial beginning of summer. I wish you all a safe and happy holiday weekend. Until next week, don’t forget to smile and be kind to all you meet. You could be surprised at how it makes you feel.
