In layman’s, you ask?
A Grand Sextile is made up of two perfectly overlapping Grand Trines (triangles formed in all three of any Element – Fire, Earth, Air, or Water). The image produced is what we culturally refer to as the Star of David or the Seal of Solomon (the astrological alignment said to have taken place at the birth of King Solomon). Interestingly, the star represents all four Elements in it’s structure as they are esoterically and anciently represented:
Though today’s alignment isn’t exact, it’s darn close. Here’s a great article to check out: http://spiritlibrary.com/sarah-varcas/29th-july-2013-almost-a-grand-sextile-but-not-quite
The Water Grand Trine consists of Mars/Jupiter conjunct in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces.
The Earth Grand Trine consists of Moon in Taurus, Venus in Virgo, and Pluto in Capricorn.
Water and Earth are both feminine, and the powerful connection of them in this pattern is a wake-up call, a “Hey, guys! This is important!” hail from the heavens for us to reawaken, remember, and reconnect with the feminine energy and power we all have within us – each and every one of us.
It’s an impetus to bring universal energy back into balance with the Feminine Divine (think Mother Nature), the power of allowing, receiving, mothering, gestating, nurturing, destroying. It’s detachment from ego that’s shifted too much towards the masculine and the fear that either leads us towards lashing out at others or hoarding our energy and resources while believing the lie that there isn’t enough.
Feminine strength is founded in surrender. But the last time I checked, Mother Nature is only a pacifist as long as there is balance. When life gets out of balance, she’ll put it back however she sees fit – hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, droughts, etc.Share
