“Thinking: the talking of the soul with itself.” – Plato

This second Wednesday in January, we are treated to a Grand Earth Trine – courtesy of skilled maven Luna in Virgo. This type of configuration is created when a trio of planets in the Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) form an equilateral triangle of three trines in the sky. In a nutshell, it is thought to be a boon for productivity and delivering concrete results.

Luna forms the first leg of this Grand Trine to intellectual Mercury Rx in Capricorn (9:58 am). Ideally, an excellent time to gather/reflect upon our thoughts or partake in constructive dialogue with others. We may also have more insight into the inner workings of our emotions at this time.

Too, if we have to speak or present things publicly today – particularly of a business or corporate nature – this Moon-Mercury trine may be a more advantageous time to do so since this flow of more pragmatic energy naturally lends itself well to discussing more granular topics such as facts and figures, presiding over spreadsheet presentations, detailing quarterly forecasts/reports etc. (although with Mercury Rx, there could still be some revisions with these matters, down the road).

Luna’s trine to inventive Uranus Rx in Taurus (4:17 pm). This completes the second leg of the Moon’s Grand Trine. It is a period in which we may be more experimental or spontaneous in our approaches, including perhaps with respect to managing our finances, possessions, or investments. It may also be a time when we enjoy social interactions with large groups of people or involvement in cause-related or civic activities. On an emotional level, we may feel a special burst of aliveness.

Born On This Day: William James (January 11, 1842 – August 26, 1910). James was an American philosopher, historian, and psychologist, and the first educator to offer a psychology course in the United States. James is considered to be a leading thinker of the late 19th century:

“We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep.”


Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.
