As many astrologers have been talking about this year, today, July 17th, marks the activation of an auspicious “Grand Trine” in the element of water. Neptune in Pisces, Saturn in Scorpio, and Mars in Cancer are combining to teach us how to go into ourselves, go into the self, and re-birth old ideas and concepts. This is a great time to manifest change.
As this Mercury in Retrograde is ending, many of us feel whooped and exhausted. I know I hid in my room a few times this week and really took a strong look at my life. Overwhelming, indeed, but necessary. What have you learned in this retrograde? Here are a few things I’ve picked up.
Always be yourself and trust your intuition. There will be people who want to take you down, who are jealous of your worth, who want to poke and prod at your insecurities. Let them. Put up a wall and realize that you are the only one who can let any person get to you. Focus on what matters to your unique dreams. Instead of dwelling on anxiety, turn your attention to the present. Notice how the light strikes a certain corner of your room. Notice when strangers are kind to each other. Feel the way your clothes are against your skin. This brings you back to the present, where you can breathe and resume your task.
Specifically, the past three days produced rough and depressive emotions. My friends and I have all felt it. As communication resumes back up, we may not want to accept many of the truths we have learned during the retrograde. This trine puts us in direct contact with how we feel. Saturn in Scorpio asks us to retreat into the underworld and deal with our darkness. I would suggest taking a time to list the negative attributes about yourself and your life, then make a list of how to change. Not everyone is perfect. We let others down. Now it is time to own up to those faults and catch the next wave to golden sands of manifestation.
This month of July asks us to take responsibility. Pay the bills, apply to jobs, work on our dreams one day at a time, be realistic in your expectations. Let go of fear and move into love. Seriously, though. If you want to talk to a person who catches your fancy, or if you want to reach out to someone who you find inspiring, do so. What do you have to lose? Thoughtful action is your best bud. Use it for the greater good!
Love and light,
What do you feel from this grand trine occurring? Are your dreams starting to become a reality?
