July 2013 will see a grand trine - where three planets are each 120° apart in the sky - in this case Jupiter (Cancer), Saturn (Scorpio) and Neptune (Pisces). These three planets have not formed a grand trine relationship since the turn of the year 1749-50, again in water signs (1929 came close, though was disassociate). An internet search of ‘grand trine 2013’ will pull in some interesting comments, but it would seem to be a good time for blessing one’s dreams, especially if you have planets round about 5° of Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces. The trine will be within orb from the beginning of July until mid August and will be closest round about 16-19 July.

Thinking about the current unseasonably wintry weather the UK is experiencing reminds me of Bernard Eccles' workshop on astrological weather forecasting that he gave us a few years ago. In it he talked about how aspects between planets can reflect weather patterns. It also reminds me that currently we not only have a mutual reception between Pluto (extreme weather) in Capricorn and Saturn (cold) in Scorpio, but we also have had a sextile between these two planets for the last few months, making it something of a grim 'triple-whammy' between these two planets.
However, using a 1-degree separating orb, they should be out of aspect by the middle of next week. Let's hope so, especially as it gives way to a much balmier Mars (heat)-Jupiter (high pressure) sextile on Tuesday...
