2016 Grand Water Trine consists of:
- Moon in Cancer
- Sun in Cancer
- Mercury in Cancer
- Venus in Cancer
- Mars in Scorpio
- Chiron in Pisces
- Neptune in Pisces
In the chart above, we see Mercury, Sun, Venus and Moon (a stellium of planets) in Cancer in the lower right quadrant. They are connected by a blue line (trine, or 120 degrees) to Mars in Scorpio at the top of the chart (the midheaven), which is connected by trine to Neptune and Chiron in Pisces in the lower left of the chart, which are then connected by trine to the Cancer stellium. This is a Grand Trine in Water Signs.
The Moon conjoins the Sun at 5:01 am CDT, about 18 hours before the Grand Water Trine perfects. The new Moon in Cancer alone is enough to intensify any watery event as a result of increased tidal activity. But to have Mercury and Venus in Cancer and the other two water signs emphasized by planetary placement as well is an indicator of big water.
We might see flood-tides, heavy downpours and generally soaking wet conditions. With Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn (the two main components of the 2016 Grand Earth Trine) in sextile and opposition aspects to the Grand Water Trine (not to mention the North and South Nodes of the Moon), muddy conditions as well as landslides may be on tap.
The Grand Water Trine will be in orb until July 18, resulting in rainy and perhaps cooler-than-usual conditions. After that, we can look forward to a blistering late July and August under the fiery Mars/Antares/Saturn conjunction.
Note: Other trends we might see under the Grand Water Trine that go along with the meme of “flood” are
- A flood of central bank currency
- A flood of refugees/migrants
- A flood of information leaks
Both of the above occurred time and again under the 2013, 2014 and 2015 iterations of the Grand Water Trine.
