THE MOON is in Aries as we begin the week, and so interacts with each of the planets in our Cardinal Grand Cross on Monday and Tuesday (see exact times in the Highlighted Aspects list). The most noticeable effects are likely to be Monday afternoon and evening (Pacific Standard Time), when the Moon aligns with Uranus and then squares both Jupiter and Pluto.
Although the Moon’s aspects are generally fleeting in their effects, lasting two to three hours at most, once again we should get some insights into the larger influence of the Cardinal Grand Cross while these aspects are at work. If we pay attention to how we’re feeling, and what situations attract our attention during these times, we may get some clarity on what we’re being asked to work on, and how we’re being asked to change during these first six months of 2014.
ON WEDNESDAY, a flowing trine aspect between Jupiter and Chiron is exact. As these two planets interact throughout this week, we are supported in strengthening our hope in the future and our trust in the universe — very important tools to have in our pockets during times of change.
This is the second of three Jupiter-Chiron trines in a nine-month period. The first occurred on August 21, 2013. The third will be part of a Grand Water Trine between Jupiter, Chiron and Saturn, which is strongest around May 15 of this year.
