This week in Astro News:
~ Sun trine Jupiter ~
~ AstroDiary ~

Venus and Uranus make an exceptionally close conjunction today.

The closer two planets get, the more powerful the experience. Venus is goddess of love, and Uranus brings surprises – so make up a sentence using the words ‘unexpected’, ‘romance’, and ‘intense’. Suddenly an ordinary Friday seems full of possibilities.

The sun is in trine aspect to Jupiter tomorrow, as you will see from the panel on the right. The triangle symbolises a trine, two planets 120 degrees apart. Regular readers know that the sun is a good influence, Jupiter is a lucky planet, and that trines are considered a good thing. So are we all going to have a fabulous day tomorrow?

Not quite. Jupiter is still going backwards, though by this time next week he will have started to move forwards again. These two phenomena - the trine from the sun, and the change of direction - should really be taken together, and Jupiter shouldn’t be considered ready to provide his usual good influences until both have taken place. In the case of Jupiter, the interval between the two events is six days. During this interval, the planet should be considered as being in neutral; ready and full of fuel but not switched on, if you like. For people who want their good fortune right now, this delay is annoying; but there’s reassuring knowledge that good times are just around the corner.

Trine aspects don’t just dump things on our doorsteps; they are gentler than that. They awaken us to possibilities for the future, and give us a little time to ponder them. Six days, in fact.
