Powerful Monday

by Kay Taylor July 29, 2013 02:30 AM EST

People are asking me what's going on, is the Mercury retrograde not over yet, why am I feeling so irritable/jumpy/vibrational...?

The fact is, although Mercury went direct on the 20th, we've been living with a tense T-square of planetary energies with Mercury (mind/communication), Jupiter (expansion/beliefs) and Mars (life force/vitality/impulse/anger) together ... and squaring Pluto (transformation/power) and Uranus (revolution/awakening).  There's been power, strong emotion and intense shifting nervous system energy to navigate.

The Mercury/Jupiter/Mars trio, traveling as a pack, all in the emotional water sign of Cancer, has also been in a grand trine or flow, with Saturn in Scorpio (bottom line: restructuring power in our lives) and Neptune in Pisces (transcendence/bliss/loss). I've written a bit about the potential of this trine and the way it aligns with Pluto. We can harness this energy to manifest grounded results if we are in alignment with purpose. And if we're not in alignment, well, it may be that some of our malformed structures will be dissolving, particularly if we were triggered for change with the eclipses in May and have been resisting said change.

Now tomorrow we also will experience a grand trine in earth: As the Moon moves into Taurus, it will trine Pluto in Capricorn and Venus in Virgo. As we know, the Pluto in Capricorn is a long term influence indicating the transformation of all major structures in the world. In our individual lives it asks us to deepen personal power, delve into shadow psychological material and transform ourselves. Venus represents our capacity to relate and in Virgo wishes to relate with skill and service. Moon in Taurus is only for a couple of days and serves as a trigger. The lunar mood fuels a need for pleasurable security and groundedness. Almost every planet is between 5 and 10 degrees with the nodes at 13 degrees. If you have planets in these degrees you will feel particularly affected.

The two grand trines together form a Star of David, a geometric form of alignment. It's as if we get a chance to feel everything all at once in a particular kind of cosmic harmony, a Rubik's cube solved if even for a day.

Every day is a great day to meditate, visualize, manifest ... but this day is particular auspicious. Here on the west coast 2:30 pm is about perfect, but any time from the morning throughout the day carries the power of this alignment.
