Grand Trine in Earth – August 21st-31st, 2018

We’ll feel the grounding influence of a Grand Trine in Earth element this August, involving the Sun in Virgo, Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn.  It’s a great time to focus on making good decisions for yourself, whether that be for your health, your career or your overall wellbeing.

The energy of a trine brings a natural flow and sense of ease.  It signifies the ability to tap into a heightened potential for harmonizing the energies of the heavenly bodies involved. 

A trine is when 2 or more heavenly bodies are in signs of the same Element and make a 120 degree angle to each other.  A Grand Trine involves placements in all 3 of the Element’s signs (in this case Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo, which are the Earth Element signs).

Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus have been approaching a trine since around the middle of June this year and remain in this aspect until around the middle of November.  As the Sun passes into Virgo it will trine Saturn and Uranus forming a Grand Earth Trine from roughly August 21st – 31st.
