Morning Star: Daily Astrology for May 9, 2014

This morning we wake up to Moon in Virgo in a Grand Earth Trine with Pluto in Capricorn and the Sun. The Sun in Taurus and Moon in Virgo will also sextile Jupiter creating a Kite. The Water trine with Saturn, Jupiter and Chiron is still gaining momentum.

These two trines create what is called a Star of David configuration in the sky. And, as Saturn continues his retrograde through Scorpio waxing into sextile with Pluto RX in Capricorn a Mystic Rectangle forms between Saturn, Pluto, Sun and Jupiter. And, as Pluto continues is in sextile with Chiron in Pisces, ANOTHER Mystic Rectangle forms between Jupiter, Moon, Pluto and Chiron.

From CafeAstrology in regard to the Mystic Rectangle in a natal chart: “The Mystic Rectangle, or Rectangle, is comprised of two opposition aspects, connected with two trine and two sextile aspects. The harmonious trines and sextile aspects can be considered release points for the tension of the oppositions. The native can be attracted to important causes. There is a strong chance that the native will put his or her talents to work, or to good use.”

In regard to the Star of David:

“A configuration of aspects formed when two Grand Trines are present in a horoscope, connected with each other by sextiles. In the ideal case they form a hexagon. As this configuration is very rare, some will consider that a Star of David occurs even with two unconnected Grand Trines.
P. Globa states that the Star of David shows a native protected in all he does, but one who does not avoid internal reorganizations; he or she will change in form to adapt, but the inner essence remains constant: "as he was in the cradle, such will be and in the grave".
M. March and J. McEvers remark that the Hexagon configuration offers natives exclusive opportunities, and a brilliant ability to communicate with other people. The danger of a Star of David consists in expenditure of energy, because of the increased many-sided, various interests and the numerous opportunities. Intense (hard) aspects can help with this difficulty. “

According to all this, there is support to be found for us in both of these aspects. Personally, I was just excited for the Earth trine. But, it would seem that the Universe is pulling itself together to give us a configuration that keeps on giving. There is grand opportunity in all of this.

After the harshness of April and with a powerful Full Moon waxing in next week (conjunct Saturn), all I can say is, “Way to go Universe! It's about time we had something nice!”

The Moon's aspects in all of this include an opposition to Chiron (12:05 PM), trine to the Sun (4:17 PM) and sextile to Saturn (6:09 PM EDT).

From here, Moon catches Void status until she enters Libra tomorrow at 1:26 PM.

It's a great day for accomplishing things, finding support, solutions, help, getting things done, launching new things (before Moon is Void), healing...basically if you have something you need or want to do today, the Universe has an aspect pattern in the sky that can help you.

Between the waxing Moon and the Earth and Water trines, I'm thinking it is an excellent day for planting. But, you use this beautiful astro day for what you want! Enjoy this!
