Kite Chart August 2013Many of you are aware of the major configurations forming over the last month and the next while.  All major configurations are augmented and intensified by the faster moving planets as they lock into the degree orbs of the major configuration in a rhythmic coherence.  For instance the moon is the fastest moving body in our solar system.  The moon  "rules" the masses, the people, tribal instinct, family structures and the parental archetype of leadership, politicians, and "heads of state".  So when the moon is in a Cardinal sign every seven days, it will illuminate the Uranus square to Pluto  . . . intensifying its underlying manifestation in both the global action and our own personal experience of this dynamic

A Grand Trine – However, right now we will focus on the Grand Trine .that forms a Kite complex . . . a grand trine is an equilateral triangle between planets formed against the backdrop of the zodiac -  and acts as  a "closed conversation" between the planetary archetypes involved and deeply secreted in the privacy of our own psyche, embedded in the unconscious. When we have a grand trine between planets, it can be a period allowing for profound contact with our interior Self, and offers the opportunity to circumambulate complexes.  In this way we can give birth to a deeper and more profound sense of our personal truth.  A grand trine is a tight collaboration that closes doors on external interference, and even the most extraverted personality will find she pulling in and not as socially motivated.  A more introspective  introverted individual can become too isolated, and thus needs to make more effort to find kindred spirits.

The grand trine between Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune is still very much in orb, and highly effective as we can see by the global resonance of the great gods having a summit counsel – there is a secret in that trine, and that secret is manifesting both in our personal lives and the collective ethos.  The grand trine is operative as I write this – July through November 2013 between 4 degrees to 14 Cancer.  Jupiter will station retrograde 20 Cancer December 31 (out of traditional orb but still connected by sign and element) . . . and will station in March 2014 at 10 degrees of Cancer.
