Let's face it.... we have had a rough go of it. Back in 2010 we had the Big Cardinal Cross to contend with, then Saturn moved into Libra, which made relationships tough, then along came Uranus square Pluto, and Saturn in Scorpio (Grim reaper meets Darth Vader), not to mention the energetic implications of 2012. Whew...now thats alot to handle! We need a break... we need a deep heart healing....a restorations of faith....we need some magic.
From about July 17th to the 23rd, the planets line up to create this Cosmic effect. Jupiter and Mars will be conjunct in Cancer (Emotional healing), trining Saturn in Scorpio (Depth healing) and Neptune in Pisces (Spiritual healing). Mars really adds power and gumption to this Trine. On the 17th, the Moon will be in Scorpio, joining in the Trine, magnifying this aspect 10 fold, because the Moon, which rules our emotions, will absorb the energy of this Trine. Jupiter expands and uplifts, brings hope and a shot of optimism, and Lord knows we all need that right now in our world of doom and gloom. Pisces has its own element of Spiritual transcendence and Scorpio is electrifyingly magnetic, and deeply cathartic through accessing the emotional realm.. Anyone with planets at the early degrees of water signs will really feel this healing powerfully!
It is also interesting to note that at this time, Mercury will be retrograde, around 13 degrees Cancer, and the North Node will be in Scorpio at 13 degrees, making a harmonious trine aspect as well. Talk about Emotional Healing...wow! Being that Mercury is in Cancer retrograde, it will most definitely invite all of us to heal old emotional scars and wounds from the past, most definitely related to family, and people in our lives that may feel like family. Cancer is all about the past and holding on to it, so expect people from the past to be flooding in. The North Node traveling in Scorpio is taking us down the path of old betrayals and woundings that lie deep down within us, that effect our sense of power, control and insecurity. Its not all bad though, as Scorpio also rules deep bonding and merging with others, and transcends any element of superficiality, so deep bonds may be forged at this time. With the Nodal trine to Mercury retrograde in July, this opens the cellar door for old wounds be remembered...to rise up and be healed, alongside the Grand Water Trine, where the hurt and pain magically melts away, replaced with a real sense of forgiveness and love. People will be brought back into our lives for a Healing Reunion of the Grandest kind. Also expect a re-uniting of old lost loves and dearest friendships, for the purpose of opening, expanding and healing the heart. Emotional bonds and emotional memories (Mercury in Cancer) of all kinds will be healed.
As I am writing this it all sounds very Neptunian, and it should, as Neptune will be swimming in its home of Pisces, so this will be a very strong energy playing into the Grand Trine and magnifying its power, especially the power of healing. And this healing wont be superficial and fleeting. It will be potent, strong and grounded, and Saturn in Scorpio will make it so! This healing will get deep down into the roots of our being, because Cancer is all about our roots, our family and our place of origin, the deepest depths of who we are.
It is also interesting to note that 2013 is a year "6" in numerology. The year 6 corresponds to the Planet Venus, the love planet. The 6 year is a year of deepening relationships and family also becomes increasingly important, which seems to fit nicely in with this summer's Grand trine and Jupiter, the higher octave of Venus moving into Cancer for its yearly visit.
Will July bring the healing respite we are all in need of? I think so....
