Grand Fire Trine – Building Castles In The Sky

We have a Grand Trine in Fire signs between Saturn, Uranus and the North Node which started forming mid-May and will last until mid-June. In the middle of the transit, the Grand Trine will turn into a “Castle” a highly beneficial configuration that will enable us to actualize our life mission, turn our vision into reality and make our wildest dream come true.

Every time the Nodes are involved, we have the choice to stay where we are, adding an extra layer of security to the comfort of our South Node, or move into the unknown, pushing of our instincts to the pull of our purpose (North Node).

3th of June will be the highlight of this very special energy, due to some very special transits:

  • Venus conjoins Uranus, adding an “extra sparkle” to the Grand Trine.
  • Mars, in the last degree of Gemini, applies a sextile to the North Node and to Venus and Uranus
  • The South Node is in sextile with Saturn and Venus/Uranus

On 3rd of June 2017 the Grand Trine will become a Double-Kite, also called a “Castle” which is an extremely rare and progressive astrological configuration.

Castle

I like the symbolism attached to the Kite, which is a bird flying between Heaven and Earth bearing the sign of the Cross. The role of the Kite is to stimulate the expression of the Grand Trine, of the infinite potential of the Universe through our consciousness. The Grand trine energy is expressed through the Kite.

In our case we have two possible “outlets” for the Grand Fire Trine energy (North Node/ Uranus/ Saturn): one is though Mars and the other though the South Node. We have to choice to either “act” upon our mission in this lifetime, and literally start building castles in the sky, or to go back to our comfortable routine and do nothing (South Node) about the opportunity we’ve been presented.

And because we have 2 kites the configuration becomes a “Castle”. The Castle is a highly stable structure, resting on the base of the trine / triangle. The planets we have at the base are Saturn and the North Node. The foundations on which we are building our castle are solid (Saturn) and aligned with our soul’s Purpose (North Node).

The Universe is giving us everything we need to turn our dreams into reality.

Who said you can’t build castles in the sky? The highest point of the Castle is the Uranus  / Venus conjunction signifying the edelweiss on top of the mountain, the stunning beauty of the higher realms of the sky, the promise of heaven.

Leave behind your comfort zone and chose action instead, you now have the chance to build upon a foundation that will stand for an eternity.  

If you have planets or angles around 27° in Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, you are especially favored by this transit.

Saturn is Square the Nodes of the Moon

The past creates the future and the future is a reflection of the past.

The Nodes of the Moon represent the pathway of our soul’s evolutionary journey from the past (the South Node) to the future (the North Node).  The North Node is the direction our Soul longs to go towards in this life, our calling, and the South Node is the direction we need to move away from—the default patterns “inherited” from another life. Yet, you cannot cut the cords of the past. The past needs to be acknowledged. Our future self is just a step forward, another ring in a tree trunk.

Saturn rules our conditioning or the way we were taught and brought up in the world, our “playground” – remember Saturn has rings? The ring marks the border between what is allowed and was is not. It reminds us of our boundaries, responsibilities and commitments. That’s why Saturn is associated with restrictions and limitations, but with this, it also brings structure and meaning to our life. Saturn has the power to manifest whatever we put our mind to, as long as feasibility criteria are satisfied. Saturn’s lessons actually help us to grow. Saturn cherishes maturity and experience.

Saturn square to the North Node and to the South Node plays an extremely important role in our evolution.

The Nodes call for a development of the Saturnian function, and a wise use of our natural talents and resources. Saturn wants to break down the ego structures that no longer serve us in order to “create” a better version of ourselves. But for this, we must develop strength, order and self-discipline.

Are you stuck in your life? You know if you are stuck in your South Node when everything is quite ok …but something is not quite right. There is something in your psyche that tries to convince you that where you are is good enough (South Node). But still, deep down, you know you are stagnating. You know that you are being called towards something else. That you were brought into this world for a purpose  (North Node). You don’t know what that is yet but you know you need to move towards it, even if the possibility of the unknown frightens you.

The effects of this transit have been present for a few weeks already and will continue for a new more weeks. We will all feel this transit, and those of us with planets and angles around 12° in Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) will feel it even more.

Questions to reflect upon during the Saturn square Nodes transit:

  • Do you live in the past, present or future?
  • Do you play small or do you take chances in your life?
  • Are you self-disciplined enough to make good progress towards your goals? Or you’re rather scattered and uncommitted?
  • In which areas of your life you need to overcome your insecurities? Do you explore the fullest potential that you are capable of being?
  • How do you get to your North Node? What has been left unresolved from past and needs to be addressed, now or never?
  • Can you appreciate your unique features and regard them as a beauty all your own? Can you say “I am good enough”?
  • Where is the clutter in your life? In your living room? In your relationships? Your career? Your health? How are you going to get rid of it?

Jupiter Square Saturn

The planet of beliefs, spirituality and abundance (Jupiter) gets crossed with the serious and disciplined Saturn. The result? I wiser Jupiter, and a more relaxed Saturn.

Because Jupiter and Saturn are interpersonal planets (so is not much we can do really to influence this aspect), we will be asked to adjust our beliefs, while keeping the faith that the universe is working in our best interest.
