GRAND FIRE TRINE:
Tomorrow, April 14, we’re moving into a stunning grand fire trine: the Sun in Aries, the Moon in Leo, and Jupiter in Sagittarius will all be at 24 degree, each 120 from one another, creating an equilateral triangle in the heavens. The trine is the most auspicious and supportive aspect in ancient astrology. Planets that are trine to one another share polarity—active or receptive—and triplicity or element, meaning that their qualities are deeply sympathetic to one another. The grand fire trine tomorrow will bring in a sweeping wave of activation, stoking our fires to generate movement and momentum. Fire signs drive us toward uninhibited freedom, blazing beyond restraints and pushing into new visibility and glory. Figuratively, what might you set on fire in order to burn down whatever is limiting you from moving forward or becoming your most authentic self?
The Sun is exalted in Aries, the sign associated with taking initiative and charging ahead. The Moon in Leo is moving into its gibbous phase, waxing toward full, and perfecting whatever it’s bringing into visibility. Leo is a sign associated with confidence and courage, standing out from the crowd, and being willing to shine in all your brilliance. Jupiter is dignified in Sagittarius, its domicile, where it feels at home and connected to its abundant resources. Although Jupiter just stationed retrograde, it is still inviting expansion and growth into the Sagittarius parts of our charts. Sagittarius is always moving beyond the horizons, expanding our experiences and understanding of the world, pushing us toward adventure and our willingness to take a leap of faith.
That being said, tomorrow will be a great time to:
-make progress on whatever projects you’re working on
-take some time for adventure, for branching out and doing something new and exciting
-let go of some of your inhibitions and allow yourself to be seen and celebrated for all the brilliance of who you really are
-take some risks that you really feel stirring inside you, allowing yourself to be vulnerable in the courage it takes to step into the unknown
Of course, we don’t move through this world alone. One of the deep lessons of astrology is that we are constituted in and through countless relations. So, as we feel the charge toward freedom in our own lives, we might remember what Angela Davis teaches us: freedom is a constant struggle. How might we channel this energy toward the struggle for justice? What are the actions we can take to not only pursue our own freedom but also to work toward collective liberation? It’s a powerful day for activism—whatever that looks like for you.
-Initiate challenging conversations.
-Speak out against systemic racism, misogyny, and the hatred of trans and queer folks.
-Donate to organizations fighting for social justice.
-Connect with groups who are already organizing for more livable futures.
-Create art that gives us ways of experiencing justice in a world to come.
