Blessings to all. Saturn, Venus + Mars and Juno are now forming a GRAND FIRE TRINE, a part of the Great Goddess Fire Trine that is set to dominate the energies of 2015 ( http://wp.me/p4OUNS-bb ) . Fire energy is associated with alchemy, transformation, purification, inspiration and creative drive. It is the energy of the ‘go-getter’, the pioneer, the leader that pushes through a new vision or idea in the world.
The Grand Fire Trine allows you to experience, question, and assert the ways in which you experience your true Essence of Self. Is it through what your body tells you? your ego? the way other people see you or approve of you? or through experiencing the world, one adventure at a time?
Let’s take a look at what each body brings to this intensely charged alignment to flesh out those questions a little more.
(1) Saturn in Sagittarius. Sagittarius deals with our belief systems, ideologies, philosophies, spiritual paths, relationships with gurus, mentors and teachers, as well as religious and academic institutions. Not to mention foreign travel, a sense of adventure, and wanting to find wisdom from one mountaintop to the next. It’s also associated with the discipline of astrology as that tends to give you a bird’s-eye view of things.
With Saturn in this position, we are asked to question the structure, discipline, organization, authority, legitimacy and viability of the teachers/paths/adventures, etc. that we hold dear to ourselves. All that cannot stand the test of time will have to go. All that can, will be strengthened further. This can manifest as an internal sense of pressure, or through an external authority figure that seeks to tell you what is your own Truth, or both.
(2) Venus and Mars in Aries: The Cosmic Lovers essentially ask us to be mindful of what we are attracted towards, and to what lengths we will go to acquire it. It’s a very revealing time in which we will learn what matters most to us, in terms of material desires and needs. This can be a powerful exercise in Knowing the Self, as well as finding ways in which we can unite both the Masculine and the Feminine aspects of our own psyches. Externally speaking, it can represent the powerful influence of your significant other in shaping the way that you see, express and assert the Self. Remember that we’re all going through this aspect, so it’s not just a one-way thing.
(3) Juno Retrograde in Leo: Juno represents the energy of Soul-Completion, and equally of the Divine Feminine in all of her forms. She opens the self, sometimes through pleasant, and at other times, painful activations. At times we engage with the Feminine through the modality of pleasure, acceptance, joy and happiness, and at other times, we are led to her through experiences of loss, grief and sorrow. In Leo, Juno’s focus is upon the Heart and Sacral Chakra. On matters of love, sensuality, creativity, romance, the energy/archetype of the Child, one’s sense of joy in life, and so on. At this time we are profoundly activated by soul-mates (those whom we have made soul contracts with to learn and grow in significant ways) who then ask us to express and transform certain fundamental aspects of the way we Express our Being. Bear in mind that soulmates are not necessarily romantic or sexual partners
I would’t call this alignment a necessarily positive or negative time – as Trine energies are never one thing or another. They represent a coming together of different streams of energy that are then amplified through that interaction. What is amplified can be a wonderful experience, or it can be more of something unpleasant. It really comes down to your individual choice in working with/through this energy.
Some of us may be finding the Saturn challenge to be a pleasant one, aligning our views and philosophies of life with something that is life-affirming and confirming of the love we feel from close partnerships, and from within our own Beings. The absolute reverse can apply if there is a significant challenge expressed by any one of these bodies, though I suspect Saturn’s role will be the hardest to handle for most.
Whichever way you choose to handle this energy, know that you are setting seeds, and beginning your commitment to a long-term process of asserting, expressing, and knowing The Nature of The Self.
This Grand Fire Trine began on Feb 18 and will last until March 5, 2015. It is particularly intense now due to the exact trine formed between Saturn and Venus (Feb 24) and Saturn and Mars (Feb 25).
Blessings to All:
