This week’s Grand Earth Trine brings us the opportunity to appreciate the satisfaction and growth that comes from taking care of our day-to-day business. It’s all about appreciating our foundations and taking care of those mundane details without which our bigger goals and aspirations would just collapse. After all – you can’t aim for the stars without first building your rocket ship – or the launch pad from which to fire it from! As the Zen Buddhists say: ‘Before enlightenment – chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment – chop wood, carry water.’
On the 7th, Venus enters regal and dramatic Leo. It’s a sign where Venus is very comfortable as she’s a girl who loves being the centre of attention. Have you been feeling that your sense of attractiveness has taken a bit of a knock recently? If so Venus puts you back in touch with your feminine self-expression and pushes you back out into the spotlight with opportunities to shine via flirtation, love affairs or just shining in your own unique light.
On the 9th Saturn in Libra makes a perfect trine to the Moon in Gemini. When it comes to timing you may be in the right place at the right time or say just the right thing at the right moment. It’s about knowing your moment has finally arrived to act. You may have waited a long time for this. Saturn appreciates your patience. In life as in comedy – timing is everything. This aspect can makes it flawless.
