Grand Trines in Water and Earth – June/July 2018

This July, we have TWO Grand Trines occurring in both of the Feminine Elements; Water and Earth.

Jupiter and Neptune have been in a trine since late April 2018 and will both form a trine to the Sun in Cancer from June 30th – July 13th – thus forming a Grand Trine in the Element of Water.

A trine is when 2 or more heavenly bodies are in signs of the same Element and make a 120 degree angle to each other.  A Grand Trine involves placements in all 3 of the Element’s signs (in this case Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, which are all 3 of the Water Element signs).

The energy of a trine is naturally flowing and brings a sense of ease.  It signifies the ability to tap into an inherent agreement that is created, thus harmonizing the energies of the placements involved. 

Also this month, as Venus passes through Virgo it will trine Saturn and Uranus, forming a Grand Earth Trine from roughly July 7th – July 18th.

See below for more on the Grand Water and Earth Trines:

Grand Water Trine (June 30-July 13)

This Grand Trine involves:

  • The Sun in Cancer

  • Neptune in Pisces

A Grand Trine in Water Element signs subtly emphasizes the Feminine Element of Water, which rules your intuitive insights, ability to access personal emotions, to sense and empathize with the emotional experiences of others.   The energy of a Grand Trine can be subtle because the agreement between the placements involved is so harmonious, it does not necessarily require conscious action to access or feel its effects.

  • Forgiveness
  • Spiritual Healing
  • Strengthening or forming new bonds of intimacy, friendship and trust
