July 29, 2013, is the day of the Grand Sextile also called a “Star of David” formation.

This aspect comes into play one week after the Full Moon of the Cosmic Moon, which is the last of 3 Super Moons in a row. The Super Moon is when the Full Moon falls on the day when the Moon is closest to the Earth. The Moon moves into position to create a Grand Trine with Venus and Pluto which also completes a Grand Sextile around the planet Earth. The Grand Trine with Venus, Pluto and the Moon signifies the possibility of transformation (Pluto) through the power of beauty (Venus) and love (Super Moon).

There is already a Grand Trine in place as the Moon moves in to complete the Grand Sextile. Mars conjunct Jupiter trines Saturn and Neptune. This harmonious aspect represents the possibility of our highest hopes and dreams (Neptune) being able to reclaim spirituality from religion (Jupiter) and replace materialism with abundance (Saturn). Mars is added in there to allow us to replace war with peace. 

The Grand Sextile is formed from the 2 Grand Trines . The Grand Sextile forms a 6 sided, crystalline form around the Earth with 2 interlocking triangles inside. This is the geometric form of a Stargate formed around the planet Earth by the other planets in the solar system. This is the opportunity for direct download of galactic cosmic energy.

The aspects of the Grand Sextile enhance the aspects of the Grand Trines. 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.

Four days before that day and four days after the Moon moves across the sky, forming conjunctions to the planets Pluto, Neptune, Uranus and then moving into place to take the last spot in a Grand Trine and forming the Grand Sextile.

You enjoy sports, either as a participant or as a spectator, especially when your side wins. You approach everything in life with great enthusiasm, including the way you express your opinions to others. Although you do not generally pick fights with others, you will not back down from a challenge either.

You have a healthy and confident attitude about sex, and you require an energetic sexual partner. You can be a smooth operator when you want to be and can charm your partner by saying and doing just the right things at the right times! Instead of depleting your energy, sex seems to energize you and is a vital component of your expression of love for your partner. You truly live each moment fully, with little thought of tomorrow.

With Mars in supportive trine aspect to your Ascendant you can develop positive ways to assert yourself and achieve the realization of your desires. You may feel quite comfortable in competitive situations and are likely to have the ability to relate to men. Your physical vitality may be strong, and you may feel that you have a good energy reserve which can be further enhanced by staying physically fit and active.

Your occasional loss of control over your own feelings can result in real arguments. One result is that you may not have the support of those around you. You sometimes have to go it alone.

Venus opposed Neptune

You may feel a dichotomy between personal comforts, money and possessions versus spiritual idealism. You appreciate and are drawn to mysticism and spiritual principles, but may be unwilling to make any personal sacrifices on behalf of your beliefs. You may compromise your spiritual values to maintain your personal comfort and material security. You could enact this dichotomy in a significant relationship, where one person (you or the other) is an idealist and one a materialist; or you may eventually come to understand that a balance can be achieved.

Jupiter opposed Pluto

You may feel a tug-of-war within yourself over choices that could further your career but interfere with personal growth and development. You might choose to avoid situations that would expose your psychologically vulnerable material, preferring to pursue success in traditional ways and avoid the potentially painful and distressing revelations of depth psychology. You may desire positions of leadership but be uncomfortable wielding power, thus undermining your own success. Or you may resolve this dichotomy by adopting a traditional role and projecting the power and transformative charisma on someone else (or vice versa). Experiences of loss will send you on a search for understanding, which will transform your belief system.

Venus square the Ascendant

With Venus in square aspect to your Ascendant you may continually underestimate your worth or value as a person. You may have fallen victim to the idea that your appearance is the only key to your beauty and, whether or not you think you are physically attractive, may never be quite satisfied with the way you look. On a deeper level, you may be dealing with a sense of inadequacy which may stem from a feeling that you are not lovable. Being lovable begins with the way you feel about yourself, and by becoming more accepting and loving toward yourself, you nurture the true essence of love – which resides at the core of your inner self. You may also struggle with the experience of putting yourself at risk or putting forth effort in order to achieve the realization of your desires. You may find that you actually appreciate something more if you attain it through your own efforts than if it were simply given to you.

MOON in Taurus

You have strong, stable emotions and tend to draw around you the perfect environment for your upbringing. You are sensitive, good-natured and charming, with an attractive personality and a great appreciation of beauty. You are devoted, loyal and persistent, and sometimes stubborn and resistant to change. The thing you need is always at hand. In addition, you get much support and good fortune from friends and relatives. You value constancy and security in all things and possess a good business sense. You are, by nature, very domestic and enjoy nice surroundings.

VENUS in Cancer

You are sentimental, gentle, kindly, receptive, and changeable, and are always unconsciously seeking for emotional security. With you, the domestic scene is ideal. Marriage, children, animals, gardens, the whole works. Loyalty to family is very strong. You like to feel secure. Sensitive, sensual and affectionate, you are dependent on others and like to be taken care of, even mothered. You love music, can be very emotional, and tend to be protective.

MARS in Cancer

You have a real security drive and a need to care for and protect others. Very sensitive to the slightest emotional change, you have all the artistic traits and talents. Digestion may suffer from strong emotions. If threatened, you can be very defensive, and you hate competition. You love family, children, and animals. You have common sense.

Jupiter in Cancer

You are outgoing, friendly and personable, and work well with the public. A successful career in business is possible, for you like broad, secure foundations. It is important for you to feel safe, and you are very domestic, focused on family, home, and kids. Supportive, nurturing, you use your intuition and instinct over thought and deliberation. Fiercely loyal, you are a fighter when protecting your own interests or those you love. Very dependable. Material success in middle age.

SATURN in Virgo

You have an orderly, analytical and critical mind, but it would be helpful to develop a sense of humor too. You have a tendency to avoid responsibility or work and to put off taking care of details. Application and practice is the remedy. Be specific. Take care of every last detail. Develop and use your critical faculties, but avoid nagging and irritability. Take care of business. Over-seriousness needs tempering. Very good for research, science or accounting.

Neptune Retrograde in Pisces – Dream Time

The planet responsible for submerging us into dreams, illusion, glamour and delusions is preparing to go retrograde in his home turf of Pisces on June 7, and continuing for 160 days. This is our opportunity to confront any areas of our life where we have been living in denial. Look to where your favorite modes of escapism lie and ask yourself what inner caves have you been avoiding.

This is a precious opportunity to connect back to spirit, your unconscious, sleep and dream work in a powerful way. It’s easier to access the right hemisphere of the brain. We’re more likely to turn our minds away from logic and reasoning and towards creativity, mysticism, symbolism and subtle energy. Those with strong Pisces, Neptune or Twelfth House energies in their birth chart will feel this profound shift, and may feel overwhelming sensitive. It’s all too easy to leave our bodies and lose our grounding during this time, as we shift into the subtle body realm.

It’s a good idea to avoid or at least cut down alcohol and caffeine during this time to remain somewhat grounded and still attached to the Earth plane. It’s also wise to avoid chemicals, and any addictive people, places and things. Due to the heightened sensitivity, it’s also important to steer clear of toxic and draining situations. Boundaries are not strong during this time. We are all feeling more permeable to the influences around us, so be mindful of what you’re letting into your energetic sphere.

On the brighter side, this is a beautiful time for healing, compassion and accessing our visionary potential. We have special access to the higher realms of creativity and all of the subtle art forms and healing arts. Empathy, spirituality, mysticism, the invisible, dreams, archetypes and surrendering our egos to something higher are all prevalent themes for the second half of 2013. There is a strong redemptive quality to Neptune when we embrace it for all of its healing potential.

 Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn

Its purpose will be to dig out any leftover pieces of the past that are preventing you from moving forward. Capricorn is an Earth sign. It symbolizes structures and boundaries. Even though these changes will start on deep level, eventually they will take physical form. They may be showing already.

Think about this for a minute. What’s starting to show on the surface of your life? Cracks? A shift in power? A relocation? This is key, and it will help you to deal with this retrograde period (until September 20th.) Pluto’s changes will become obvious to everyone (at some point) so make sure you’re doing them right. The consequences of a poorly handled Pluto transit (ignoring or denying the transformations) can manifest as the ruins of your current structures, with nothing to replace them. Scorched earth, no new growth. Pluto destroys before it triggers rebirth, but you have to work with it to get to the rebirth part.

Don’t freak out about this. Working with a Pluto transit just means you have to let go of what’s already being pulled away, and allow new growth to flourish. Then tend to that new growth. This retrograde is your chance to be thorough; you’re working with the changes that have already occurred, not making new ones (yet).

If you have planets/angles between 11-8 degrees Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, Aries, Taurus or Virgo, you’ll feel this retrograde most strongly.

So injoy of this Grand Sextile as uch as possible 😀
