Sun trine Saturn
Sun trine Saturn is exact at 2:06 PM PT today. The Sun is the central principle of self. Saturn is inhibition and concentration. A trine is a positive, flowing aspect. Sun trine Saturn generates the tendency to buckle down and get to work, or to become so absorbed in a subject that the rest of the world disappears. Sun trine Saturn energy also generates the kind of perseverance and determination that creates the good solider, whether it be in war or in commerce, this one will stick by you and get the job done, no matter what, and they will often operate quietly behind the scenes, as Saturn is naturally modest. Sun trine Saturn puts down roots and builds a careful foundation.We can use this stable energy right now as Mercury just turned Retrograde yesterday, and as everyone knows, the Solar Eclipse is coming up on August 21st. Eclipses are volatile times of uncertainty. With the kind of political rhetoric we are hearing in the United States, the major path of the Eclipse and so the place most heavily affected, this is indeed a scary time.
Voids and more
Most of the Voids this week are in favorable signs and so nothing to worry about. There is one brief one on Thursday from 6:38 AM until 9:13 AM when the Moon moves from Gemini into Cancer. A Venus/Pluto opposition on Tuesday at 4:17 AM may create jealousy and possessiveness in relationships, or lascivious tendencies. Venus squares Jupiter on Wednesday night at 11:40 PM, encouraging excess, wastefulness, and laziness. It can also bring a surfeit of joy. Let’s hope for the later. Take care of yourselves with this Retrograde and the Eclipse approaching. Meditate and think positive thoughts!
