Astrology is not always about `bad news’ – and here’s some excellent ones.. !

Mercury has been retrograding since late June’13 and today comes to be stationary in Cancer…and starts going direct!  This is good.. in case you have been one of those millions pf people experiencing wrangles in life, missed opportunities, arguments, mental stress, conflicts…as well as issues with contracts, communications, and even the odd squabbles with your siblings!

All that should be clearing away here onwards..!    Commercial ventures can go forward. Those teething internet problems can disappear..  and hopefully even the local trains and buses will run on time..

From the graphics here, you can see that…Mercury ..although going direct now…has some days too go..before it gets to the spot in Cancer it was…before it started going backwards! So  between now (21st July) and about 4th August, there’ll be time to start resolving those matters..  clearing up issues that have come up in the past 3-4 weeks..  before making new progress!

That’s not all the good news..!

We have already experienced the grand trine between Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune..   Now it’s the turn for Mars…which will form (later today) trines with Saturn and Neptune..! And in 2 days, Mars will also conjunct with Jupiter..

The key points to focus..are the symbolisms of Saturn (authority, parental issues, long term plans and structures, material security),  Neptunian matters (dreams, ideals, psychology, inner beauty, intuition & psychic matters), and of course Jovial (Jupiter) qualities.. such as expanding horizons, exploring religion, law, philosophy, higher education..  and so on.   All these energies become connected to Aries people..through these aspects so it’s there…Just `tune in’ and be positive!

This is good for Aries people..who may have started to wonder ..in the past few days.. why things suddenly got bad to worse for them …despite feeling edgy  for 3 weeks.. under the influence of mercury retro. That’s because Uranus just started retrograding in Aries few days ago…and will do so for 5 months.. (see next blog post on this)

the trines & Conjunction Mars forms will give Aries people a boots.. Main thing is to store up that boots and positivity..so that  even when the gets rough for the next few months..  you’ll know it will all change..!

Sun conjuncts Jupiter TODAY (19th June 2013)

Guess what? Might Sun, centre of our Solar system is conjuncting with jovial Jupiter today…in Gemini at 16:11 hrs (GMT)!

This is a fantastic astrological aspect between two of the largest stellar bodies in our Solar system. Yes, it happens every year..   but this one is taking place in Gemini (28 degrees)..  so the special boost is for Gemini’s – though by planetary rulership, it will have an influence on Leos (ruled by the Sun) and Sagittarius (ruled by Jupiter).

But everyone will benefit from this..  so much so…and it is a big symbol of hope, faith and inspiration…that I just had to do a special blog to flag it up :-)

In a few days, of course, Jupiter will move to a new sign…Cancer!

Royal aspects

..and interestingly, Prince William of  Great Britain…2nd in line to the Throne is about to have not just his birthday…but going to have the birth of his own child in a few weeks time..  His child (daughter?) is going to have Jupiter in her own sign..  Cancer..  !     Prince William celebrates hs own birthday on Solstice day …so I feel he’s going to be one with a lot of power..  and now with these aspects brewing, so will his to-be-born-soon child..   3rd in line to the Throne!   Sorry Prince Harry. You’ll just get knocked back by one position!)

I’ll have to look at these in another blog…after the baby is born.. :-)

Photo of Jupiter-conjunct-Venus (13March’12)

Hi all,  skies have been cloudy in London all night…but just after sun-set, I remembered to dash out and take some photos of the venus-jupiter conjunction.   I used a fujifil digital camera, set on 3megapixel. Camera mounted on a simple tri-pod, then set on 2 second timer.. to avoid hand-shakes!.    Did some close up photos too.  Enjoy.   -Mani

(ps. these 2 planets form one tip of the grand-trine, with Pluto & Mars on the other 2 tips!)

Hi readers,

Here’s a graphics with all the useful information on the grand-trine taking place today/tomorrow, with times, so you can make use of it in your own esoteric / magical workings.    Good fortunes.  -Mani
