The Grand Trine in the earth signs will activate different areas of life for different people, depending on where the planets involved are placed in relation to the Ascendant. In other words, what houses are activated by this trine in your chart? For me, the issues are money, work & health, and professional status. (2nd, 6th and 10th houses) My guess is the grand trine on Thursday planted seeds, and the New Moon of May 5th added plenty of nutritious minerals and water.
Remember that the new moon is the beginning of a cycle. Also, this full moon hits a special point in the sky known as the World Axis. This gives any efforts begun at this time an extra boost toward becoming known by the public.
Right now, I'm working on a big project and balancing my other work in with it. My son is getting ready to leave for college, so my status - more important, how I identify myself - will change a lot when I am no longer spending much time dealing with being his mom. Money seems to be working out well for me now, too - I have "found" a check and a medium-sized bill in the most unexpected places. Who can complain about that? Not even this busy, grouchy Cancer!
I feel that the new beginning from the new moon (in my 2nd house of earned income) is me taking my earning power up a notch. I'm "graduating" from smaller pieces of work to larger, more lasting ones.
What houses of your chart are being affected by these earthy influences, and how can you become more grounded and directed toward your goals?
