Grand SEXTILE of July 29: the new normal

GRAND SEXTILE all day Monday, July 29, 2013

This is a rare and special alignment.

A GRAND SEXTILE is an opportunity – golden and perfect – to opt for peace and prosperity for all – or – we can just keep doing what we’ve been doing – hoarding power and profit. Are we generous and flowing – or are we convinced that the world is scary and FEAR is the only sane response? Is that the best we can do? Because this is a GOLDEN opportunity to ask and receive. This Grand Sextile can also help you get clear about what you truly desire.

Monday, July 29 from about 8 am EDT when the Moon is at 4 degrees Taurus until the Moon trines Pluto at 7:18 PM EDT, the MOON-in-TAURUS will add to the current trines and sextiles to create a GRAND SEXTILE.


  • a 6-POINTED STAR, the “Star of David”
  • 2 GRAND TRINES and 3 oppositions
  • 3 Oppositions: Saturn-Moon :: Neptune-Venus :: Jupiter-Pluto
  • 6 planets that sextile each other creating a chain of planets
  • 2 GRAND TRINES in 2 compatible ELEMENTS:
    GRAND TRINE in WATER – Saturn – Jupiter – Neptune
    GRAND TRINE in EARTH – Moon – Pluto – Venus
  • a symbol of “As above, so below.: One Grand Trine points one way, the other Grand Trine points in the opposite direction

We have a CHOICE – be entrenched or empowered

A Grand Sextile always means we have a choice – between becoming more entrenched in our habits – or choosing to empower and share our talents and gifts.

The concept of CHOICE is especially strong now – while the Moon creates a GRAND SEXTILE, it also enters into the Sun-Saturn square, making a T-SQUARE to the SUN (also Saturn/Moon=Sun). The choice is clear – fear or love. In this chart, LOVE is far more powerful.

There may be opportunities for connecting and supporting – instead of building more walls of fear by valuing each other only as profit margins. Will that person add to my wealth, or are they trying to take something away. This attitude keeps us alienated in anxiety and fear. What if love was the new ‘normal.”

During an active GRAND SEXTILE, we can find support when we reach out in ways that go beyond our personal selves and our individual needs, and extend ourselves into the greater social arena. When you actively ask, you will actively receive. What do you ask FOR? Here the MOON gives us a clue – to be receptive to the needs of others.

When you get what you want, do you hoard it for personal use only, or do you immediately share? What keeps us from sharing? We are blocked when we allow the negative beliefs and judgments of others to control our lives.

There are 2 potential outcomes of a GRAND SEXTILE.
– you can use the energy alignment to take action
– you can do nothing and spin your wheels into a deeper rut

The problem with this much wonderful positive energy is it can seem to be never ending, so it seems there’s no rush to take action. But this GRAND SEXTILE lasts ONE day.

The Taurus Moon also makes a T-SQUARE to the SUN as it opposes Saturn and squares the Sun early on the 29th. This aspect to Saturn may seem like an imposition, yet it is a blessing. Saturn’s influence in both the GRAND SEXTILE and the T-SQUARE underscores the importance of responsibility, self-control, and focused dedication that’s necessary to do something productive with this extraordinary energy. Manifesting the higher vibration of this alignment.

THe SUN at the focal point of a T-SQUARE is also part of the GRAND SEXTLE. This gives us a big clue. At the center of this energy alignment is YOU. And allowing yourself to LOVE yourself is the only way you can get out of your own way and let your love radiate out, without making bigger shadows.

Regardless of your relationship status, building your own identity is a priority now.

Set priorities
Allow support
Say NO if it’s no
(will other people ‘like’ this? they may not, and they may even dump a load of negativity on you – this is where it helps to be FEARLESS)

DO it, and let it go. Endlessly editing your imperfect parts is a self-sabotaging technique to prevent you from sharing. Is this keeping you safe, or preventing you from living YOUR abundance? Yes, there will be those who label and judge, and they can bring you DOWN to doing NOTHING. They are creating vortexes of negativity that have dragged them down, and maybe you too. Have they extended love and compassion? Not at all. Do they realize this? Not at all. They will judge. They will ‘hate.’ They will tell others how awful you are. If they are in a rut, they will circulate negative energy. And you can’t control it.

So back to the choice – the get deeper into the rut of creating more negativity – or – to allow your inner self the freedom to share.

Will LOVE and APPRECIATION really become the ‘new normal’ starting now? Will we let our positive vibrations empower ourselves and support others? Personally i remain neutral. The entrenched distrust and anger is deep and for those who focus on it, growing deeper. All we on the cutting edge can do is shift our focus to positive thoughts so we can allow ourselves to receive and radiate LOVE. The GRAND SEXTILE can help.

  1. On this beautiful Monday, my 63rd birthday, I predict that today will be pretty much like yesterday and the day before. We will continue in cultural decline hoping something will save us – science, medicine, cosmic alignments, God, technology, – choose your salvation.

    • Happy Birthday! Yes, you are exactly correct – if you keep doing the same thing, you will get the same results – even worse since the negativity generated will keep bringing you further down, the negative vortex effect. Your SUN at the focal point of today’s alignment shows that you have to take responsibility – if you chose to be a lightworker on the cutting edge of love, you will need to consciously raise your vibrations. And be a light. We all have a choice. Every minute. That’s free will. And being mindful. Yes, it takes diligence and conscious effort. Everything good in this world does, and there are plenty of good things humans have created.

  2. Lauren, sometimes you say exactly the perfect thing. I plan to “shift my focus to positive thoughts” and be ready to “receive and radiate love”. Thanks, this is very helpful!
