26th August: Not a Grand Sextile But I’m Still Excited!

Powerful Cosmic Alignments

Monday 26th August (GMT) is a big day astrologically – by far one of the most powerful days we’ve experienced in a very long time. My posts for 23rd and 24th-25th August give some information about preparation for it and, of course I’ll be posting more on the big day itself. But right now I just wanted to clarify what I see happening astrologically on that day. (Warning: lots of boring astro-speak coming up!)

We have a Grand Square, also known as a Cardinal Cross, formed by Venus, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. A Yod, also known as a Finger of God or Projection Triangle, formed by the Moon, Chiron and Venus, and a Mystic Rectangle formed by the Moon, Sun/Mercury, Saturn and Chiron. We also have a Star of David formed by a Grand Trine in Water (Saturn, Jupiter and Chiron) and a Grand Trine in Earth (Sun/Mercury, Moon, Pluto).

As I mentioned back on 29th July, a Star of David is not the same as a Grand Sextile. It’s part of it, but to make it a Grand Sextile the planets need to all be 60 degrees apart (give or take 4 degrees) which they’re not in this instance. Nearly, but not quite! However, despite that it’s still a very powerful time, far more so than 29th July when the last Star of David occurred.

Oh, and we have 4 Kites: one apex Saturn, one apex Pluto, one apex Chiron and one apex the Moon. One more Kite would have given us that Grand Sextile but never mind… with all that lot going on I’m fairly convinced it’s a big day nonetheless!

Ms. Sarah - I'm so sorry I didn't see your posts giving helpful hints on preparing for today, but I appear to have come through the several hours of hell and am doing really well now. I realize I must stick more closely to this site, as I have started a conversation with a kindred spirit that already has been helpful. Thanks for your and all the writers'/astrologists'/channelers' brilliant insights and advice on Spirit Library ... a lifesaver, for sure. Blessings.

Hello Lorelei! :) Very glad to here you moved through it. I think that's the key to so much.. however bad it is, as long as we keep moving in some way or other, we'll make it through.. :smitten:
