Grand Sextile!

Grand Sextile!

JULY 29, 2013 IS THE BIG ONE; THE ONE WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR. This is when the planets – the Moon, Jupiter and Mars (both conjunct on this day), Venus, Saturn, Pluto and Neptune align to form what is known in astrology as a Grand Sextile (60% apart) or Star of David. This aspect is extremely rare (the last time one formed was at the beginning of the end of WWII – on the 7th February 1945, which showed that the conflict was coming to a close). and is considered one of the most positive aspects there is. The conjunction of Jupiter and Mars is sextile to Venus, the power of beauty, on one side, and the Moon, the power of love, on the other side. This signals the opportunity for the power of love and beauty to overcome the power of war and religion. Then the planet Saturn, materialism, is sextile to Venus, power of beauty, on one side and Pluto, the planet of transformation, on the other side. This signals the power of beauty to transform materialism. Then we have the planet Neptune, the power of our highest hopes and dreams, sextile to Pluto, the planet of transformation, on one side and the Moon, the power of love, on the other side. This signifies the power of transformation to bring about our highest hopes and dreams through the power of love.
