Watch out: Venusian Grand Trine & Relationship wrangles

Venus grand trine july 2013

Venus grand trine july 2013

Can you sense it already in the air..  that crisp gritty aggressive undercurrents.. prodding and poking at you?  Or are you already facing some sort of relationship crisis? I’ll explain why..and more importantly..when it will start to clear up (Hope is so important!! It’s why I do these free astro-forecasts!)

By now, am sure you are aware that we’ve had a grand trine.. between Jupiter-Neptune-Saturn….and another grand trine between  Mars-Saturn-Neptune.. That culminated  last week on 20th July..at about 4 degrees of the relevant signs (Cancer – Pisces & Scorpio – all water signs).

Now, between Monday 29th & Tuesday 30th July, we will be under the beneficial influences of another grand trine.. that occurs between the Moon – Venus – Pluto  (which are in the signs of Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn..respectively- all Earth signs!).

Here are the exact times (all GMT)

29/7    Moon -trine Venus   21:48 hrs

               Moon- trine- Pluto 23:17 hrs

30/7    Venus – trine – Pluto   12:52 hrs

As you may know, trines are highly beneficial aspects..   that provide potential for very good things..   and these ones involve a Venus (love, relationship, wealth, arts, beauty..), Moon (feelings, moods, nurturing, intuition..) and Pluto (intensity, transformation, sex, power..).   So put all that together..and ahem..  it’s going to build up to a very powerful, transformative time…for any one of these areas (ones in bracket).

But you may have noticed…I used the word `wrangle’ in the title..   So what’s that all about then?

Well..  `before’ we can get to the transformative time..  there are…unfortunately…a few other `sharp’ aspects taking place…some of which involve Venus..and others involve Mars.

Here are the details..

26th – Venus -sextile- Saturn (fairly good…long term matters)

           -Venus-opposition- Neptune  (conflicts in place… escapism tendencies..    some dissolution of matters may occur.   needs compromise for anything to work.. or matters just go on..)

27th – Mars- opposition to Pluto ( conflicts again.. tendency for aggression..  seeking control…power-play..  all very intense! )

28th – Venus- sextile- Jupiter ( fairly good..  soothes the previous few sharp wounds..  Be generous.. !)

29th – 30th    Grand trine of Venus-Pluto Accidents possible…so be careful..-Moon (as discussed in previous section above).

1st Aug-  Mars -square- Uranus ( yes…a sting in the tail..  Just when matters seem to be getting better..  there’ll be a twist..  an aggressive or assertive one.. sudden!  Accidents possible.. )

2nd Aug- venus -sextile- Mars   ( fairly good… see below)

 

The previous grand trine involved ..among other planets, Mars..  and Martian energies and influences continue even through out these periods…  It is as if the masculine factors and energies were put through trials and tribulations..  (especially for Aries..and Cancerians who are hosting Mars in their sign). But it involved emotions (as it took place in water signs).

The next grand trine involves Venus..  feminine energies and principles come under trials & intense transformations..  (involves earthy practical solutions and thoughts for resolution to occur ..in matters of relationships.. personal, business or pleasure! ).

Notice how Pluto is touching on both Mars and Venus separately..  and not just nicely..but sharply..and intrusively (squares & Oppositions).   It is prodding.. poking..  probing…asking you to go deeper …to the truth and heart of matters…so that revelations..and changes can take place..   It is painful shedding skin..  but it is a necessary pain for the sake of growth and new skin!

You may think it’s easier for me to sit here and write these forecasts.. But believe me, I am as scratched and touched by these matters as you an anyone else is..and is going to be.

Both you and I must now follow the energies…cosmic influences..   and navigate wisely and carefully ..during the coming week or so.. and then…by 4th August.. as Mercury reaches the position it was a month ago, we will have made progress!   There will be a further prodding on 7th August..but I;ll come to that next week..

For now..  let’s be ready to face the Venusian grand trine..  and the relationship wrangles :-/

All the best

Kate’s ovedue: Astro-potential of the upcoming Royal baby

Windsor Royal Child-July 2013 -art-Mani Navasothy

Windsor Royal Child-July 2013 -art-Mani Navasothy

Kate’s overdue for delivering the future King/Queen of the country ..but only by human standards! She’s right on time by Fate’s clock I say!

In 2 days (17th July to 20th July, then 22nd July) some brilliant astrological transits (grand trines) are about to take place.. and I think the child will be born in that time.. and dare I say, he/she will possess incredible astrological potential for making the world a better place.. more so than Diana or William..

I may live long enough to see that over the next many decades..or not. Doesn’t matter. I am blooming (!) excited about this ..from an astrological point of view. Simple because, any child born in the next week or so (not just the Royal one for Prince William & Kate Windsor) is coming into this world on a most auspicious astrological time.  It’s all happening and linking the sun-sign of Cancer, which is what the new Royal baby is going to be..(unless s/he is born after 22nd July..in which case it’ll be a Leo).

(take a look at my blog on grand trine july 2013 & the Convergence).

Windsor Hern ritual connection

Some years ago, some of us in Hern’s Tribe (our outdoor ritual group..now in it’s 9th year) started doing an old custom..of performing a Windsor-Hern ritual, for the well-being of this land..  (they did it for the well-being of Royalty..but we changed it to a Sovereignty of Land ritual).  In fact, the very firstone we did happen to coincide with Prince Charles & Camilla’s wedding (well, they moved their wedding date by a day later, and that then fell on the day that we had scheduled to do the ritual.. in 2005).   Here’s the link for that page in Hern’s Tribe.

I’ve been planning to `keep our promise’ to Hern, and do the ceremony in Wondsor soon (haven;t done it this year yet)…and this occassion seems ideal for that now..  Sometime in the coming 2-3 weeks..  just as we head into Leo, and also Lammas (Harvest festival of Pagans).

Watch this blog for updates…on when we’ll be doing that Ceremony in Windsor Great Park (may be short notice)..

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

How Mercury retrograde showed up last night

 

The Astrology webinar last night (Venus trines & transits) went …well, almost :-)

I had been planning the slides all day (previous day) and yesterday started creating them on my graphics package.. The art & creative process is enjoyable and rewarding in it self for me.

All was well, till the evening, when at one point I picked up a sudden energy.. I shook it away and continued, but then things started to get frantic, and a bit disruptive with technology. I think that culminated much later – suddenly – when my phone-link (and the phone-link of webinar tech /host) both got cut off …just about 1 hr into the webinar.  Luckily we had covered all the basics relevant to the webinar, and were doing last sections and future topics.  My partner who was listening in live in north london via website also said she had experienced tech problems.

We did manage to recover..  I think the Hostess Ivy was off aiar for 30 seconds. She came online and explained some features, and texted me to re-log in. And I was online within 2 minutes and covered the missing bit before progressing with further 25+ minutes!

I could get all upset about this technical glitch (Ivy had never had one in 6 yrs she has been running webinars. This was the first it seem).

But thing is, I am actually smiling to myself.  Yesterday was when mercury started retrograde. While I had been pre-occupied with the trines, I had not paid much attention to this, so the universe reminded me in a sharp way. But more importantly, it was a real live `evidence’ of the mishaps that mercury retrograde can bring..  So in a way, during  an astrology webinar,  we actually got a bit of `real live demo’ of the astrology influence!

Okay jubilation of proof aside, we do have the next 3 weeks of mercury retrograde. So it’s good to double check agreements, plans, contracts, appointments, transport time tables, and ..back-up computer files etc.

Stellar wishes to all.

-Mani :-)
