Everybody loves an epic story of people caught in the grand sweep of great historical events. Without the Civil War, “Gone With The Wind” would just be a story of a woman who makes terrible choices with her love life. This week in the Zodiac, powerful forces are coming into play. You can take the lead and star in your own sweeping tale of romance and/or adventure, or you can just sit back and watch Atlanta burn.
Although it does not reach exact until next week, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune are joined in a Grand Trine. This particular configuration happens so rarely that it’s not exaggerating to say this is a once-in-a-lifetime event. Although the exact trine is next week, those forces are in play this week. It’s powerful stuff, but Grand Trines are notoriously lazy, and this unique opportunity could slip away unused without effort on your part. Take advantage of it!
Jupiter is hope and faith. Saturn is structure and order. Neptune is the power of dreaming. When all three are put together, you have a truly unique opportunity to exploit these forces for personal gain. Check your birth chart for wherever the early degrees of the Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are, because this is where the action is happening — and this is where you have the chance to move mountains.
The importance of taking action is emphasized by the New Moon on Monday. This represents a chance to start a new cycle. Placements in your chart particularly close to 16° of the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) will be most strongly affected. Given the sensitive nature of Cancer, even if you don’t have any placements close to that point, pay special attention to your emotional life in the days to follow anyway.
Finally: Mars enters Cancer on Saturday. This is kind of an awkward place for Mars to hang out, frankly. Cancer is all sensitive an’ stuff, and Mars just wants action. Mars doesn’t usually have the patience to put up with all that touchy-feely business that comes with the sign of the Crab. People’s drives are bound to be a little more subject to emotion when this happens. Frankly, that’s one more reason to take action earlier in the week, especially when you consider that Mars will be replacing Jupiter in that Grand Trine next week. The plans you make for yourself this week can be kicked into overdrive when that happens.
Get it together people! Don’t miss this opportunity to make your world a better place! Or on the other hand… you could always just sit back and wait for Rhett Butler to rescue you. Don’t be too surprised if he ends up walking away and telling you he doesn’t give a damn though.
