About Grandtrines

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.

We begin with The End

Spring Retrograde

Post number one. They recommend you start by explaining your intentions and goals. What do you want to achieve by writing this? How are you going to do that? Why don’t you draw us a roadmap, with a thick red line going from point A to point B?

So, I’ll be pretty upfront and say that I don’t know where this is going to go. I don’t have a final destination in mind, so I can’t draw you a pretty little picture to explain how I’ll get there. And honestly this is more for me than you. You can read along if you want, you can judge me as much as you wish, but this is really a space for me to reflect. I should also mention that this is about a break up and the stars, and my struggle to find meaning in both of those things.

So apparently it’s…

On the Existence of Fate

The Rational Idealist Esotericist

Let’s admit it, we shiver when we hear the word “Fate”.

Many of us like to see ourselves controlling our own destinies, the captain of our own ship, the maker of our own fortune yet most often, we are surprised to do and experience things that we did not plan or haven’t thought would be possible and that can happen to us. This unexpectedness of Fate is what makes us fear it. Although we fear “Fate”, we also want to understand and make sense to it.

This deep desire to understand it gave rise to Religion and the Metaphysical Sciences to appease and understand the forces of nature that pulls and cuts the strings of our existence. In the Age of Reason, Fate pushed mankind by organizing knowledge to create the Physical and Biological Sciences of which gave rise to Technology that seeks to control our enviroment by making it…

Saturn/Chiron Square: April 30th

Arrow in Flight

Astrology Update: Just as one tough square fades, another steps up to take its place… You may have felt the effects of the Venus/Saturn square that’s been testing our relationship structures since around the time April Fools’ Day was applying pies to faces all across the land. Thankfully, that square is fading now, and likely has only a few more days of fight left in it.

What’s probably of more pressing importance now is the fact that Saturn has found a new partner to square-dance with in the form of Chiron. This already powerful square is building toward peak effect this coming Sunday, April 30th.

So what does all that mean…? First of all, as always, you really need to plot this activity against what’s going on in your own birth-chart. Do you have anything around the 27th degree of Sagittarius (where Saturn is right now)…

Saturn Transits: 10th House

Jessica Davidson

When Saturn transits the Tenth House the need for security and achievement influences your career, vocation, sense of responsibility and the structure of your life. The beliefs, wisdom and philosophy that you developed while Saturn was in the 9th will now be tested against reality. This is a call to adventure and what happens, and how you respond to the call, depends on your age, status, and what you hope to achieve.

When Saturn crosses the Midheaven and enters the 10th house you’re challenged to prove yourself and discover what success means to you. Saturn focuses your attention on your ambitions, your role in society, how much authority you have or would like, and the work structure you’re using to attain your goals.

You might gain recognition for your work and achieve your long-term career goals now. But it can also be a time of frustration and anxiety, and you…
