July 8 2013 to July 14 2013

Monday July 8
Dark of the Moon

Your calendar or diary will tell you that today is the day of the New Moon. It is not entirely wrong... but the terminology is misleading. Most people apply the phrase 'New Moon' to that first tiny sliver of shiny cosmic toenail that we see after a few nights of seeing no moon in the sky at all. We're still a day or two away from that sight. Tonight is not so much the night of the New Moon as the night of the No Moon! This is what mystics, psychics and clairvoyants call the Dark of The Moon.

An Anglers Tale

Something exciting is happening in the sky. To explain this, I must discuss geometry. Try not to fall asleep! Traditionally, astrologers map the sky as a circle. We divide it into twelve equal sections (the signs) and mark the exact position of each planet. We then measure the angular distance between the planets, paying special attention to angles of 60, 90, 120, 150 or 180 degrees. (We also study angles of 45, 135, 36, 72 and 144 but that's a longer story.) To each angle, we attach meaning. Some exceptional angles are coming up soon, as I'll explain tomorrow.

Wednesday July 10
Trine Time

The twelve zodiac signs are divided into four 'elements'. Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are Fire signs. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are Earth signs. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are Air signs while the water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. These elements are evenly divided around the zodiac so any two signs of any one element will be 120 degrees apart. We call this angular distance a 'trine'. It symbolises harmony, positivity, good news. When three planets are equally spaced between all three signs of one element, we call it a Grand Trine. That's most auspicious. I'll say more tomorrow.

Thursday July 11
Trine of the Century

A Grand Trine is not particularly uncommon. All it takes is for two planets to be slowly passing through different signs of the same element. The Moon passes through all twelve signs in less than a month so there is bound to be a moment when the Moon goes through the third sign of that element, creating an auspicious cosmic triangle. But this month's Grand Trine doesn't require the Moon. It involves Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. Mars too, for Mars will be conjunct Jupiter shortly. That is the planets effectively saying, 'People of Earth... have you any special requests?'

Born Free

I once knew a husband and wife team of classically trained astrologers. When she became pregnant, they spent many hours discussing the influences that would be dominant around the due date. They were so keen to catch one alignment and avoid another that they plotted the precise moment when their baby should be born. Yet despite their efforts, the child arrived when nature called it forth! That's how it should be. Horoscopes are tools to help us understand our heavenly inheritance, not manipulate it. That said, babies born this weekend will be blessed by an exceptionally auspicious cosmic climate.

Saturday July 13
Your Week Ahead

This week brings Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn into alignments of 120 degrees. Astrologers call these angles 'trines' and we expect them to produce a climate of inspiration and creativity. Because the three planets all link with each other now, the trines effectively form what looks, from earth, like a great equilateral triangle... which we call a Grand Trine. Some are going so far as to give it a new name: a Harmonic Convergence. It's a chance for change, a chance to start healing wounds and clearing conflicts, in our own individual lives and out in the wider world.

Your Week Ahead - Love Focus

Remember, your Love Forecast today doesn't just cover romance. A love forecast may also have something to say about your family life, your closest friendships and even some of your most important working relationships.
