Jonathan Cainer's Zodiac Forecasts

Jonathan Cainer's Astro News
Friday February 6th 2003 - edited by Bernard Fitzwalter

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

The Sun is about to make a Ďtrineí aspect to Saturn. Itís exact on Tuesday, but the influence is there all week. A trine is an angle of 120 degrees, a third of a circle, or four zodiac signs. So the Sun, in Aquarius, is exactly four signs from Saturn in Gemini.

Lots of people tell me they have heard that trines are supposed to be good, yet when one occurs their life gets no better, so whatís going on? It works like this: any two planets in trine will be in signs of the same element. Aquarius and Gemini, where the Sun and Saturn are at the moment, are both air signs, for example. Energies in the same element have a certain amount in common, and that helps them work together Ė even when the two planets are very different in what they represent.

The Sun is light and growth; Saturn is restriction and denial. Where the Sun wants to move forward, Saturn closes the door. Being in trine means that if some good can come of it, it will. In this case we could say that a door may be closed for you, but it wonít be locked. It will open if pushed. This weekís trine says that progress is possible. Not much, perhaps, but enough to make a difference.

Spotted Saturn yet? Look on Tuesday evening, when the moon is right next to it. When the Sun is up, you canít see the planets; when itís dark and Saturnís up, you canít see the Sun. Makes you wonder how ancient astrologers knew when planets were in trine, doesnít it?

Research into Astrology and Infertility by Pat Harris, MSc., D.F.Astrol.S.

I would like to thank everyone who has responded to my earlier notices on Jonathan's website and who volunteered to take part in the research that I am conducting as part of my PhD in astrology and health psychology at Southampton University, UK. I now have quite a number of people taking part which will help me in conducting my study into factors that may or may not correlate with fertility treatment outcome. I should have a progress report out soon. However, I am still looking for women who are currently pregnant - not necessarily as a result of fertility treatment - and who would like to contact me about details of my research to see if they would like to take part. My email address is:

A few weeks ago, the Astrological Association of Great Britain launched this new, live fixed-fee, telephone chart reading service. It has since proved big hit with callers from all over the world. AA President Roy Gillett told Astro News: "I am delighted with the warm response that we have had. Once, if you wanted a reading of your full birth chart, you would have to struggle to find a genuine, reputable astrologer. Then, you would have had to make an appointment and travel miles. Now, at last, there's a quick and easy way to get your questions answered by a real expert - from the comfort of your own home." Mirror reader Julie Roberts from Rochester was equally enthusiastic. "I rang last Tuesday and spoke to an astrologer called Maria. Within moments, she was telling me details about my childhood that she could not possibly have known... then she said some fascinating things about my future.
