Current Configurations

Venus, Jupiter, Mars, and Pluto in Harmony

No doubt many astrologers will be writing about the Mercury retrograde phase we are entering this week, warning us of impending snags in technology and of fumbled communication. And you will certainly hear about the stressful square aspects made by Uranus and Pluto in the next several months — harbingers of upheaval and definite change. But this week, on Tuesday night, March 13, four bodies will create in their orbits a Grand Trine (an equilateral triangle) in our heavens. Jupiter and Venus will conjoin at 9° of Taurus, Mars will be positioned at 9° of Virgo, and Pluto will be at 9° of Capricorn. This, friends, is a time of great opportunity, good fortune, energy, transformation, and joy that will be there for the taking of many people. Grand Trine configurations don’t hit us over the head, though. They don’t surprise us with sudden benefits bestowed upon us.  They are like temporary buried treasure, requiring just a bit of effort to attain their riches. And there are some people for whom the keys to the treasure are waiting.
