Venus Trine Jupiter (August 8)
Venus, the goddess of love, harmony and beauty and Jupiter, god of expansion, understanding and optimism are trine; a harmonious aspect.
Trine. A trine (abbrev. Tri) is an angle of 120° (1/3 of the 360° ecliptic), an orb of somewhere between 5° and 10° depending on the planets involved. The trine relates to what is natural and indicates harmony and ease.
This sweet-toned aspect is presently showering us with blessings. You may feel more optimistic about life, love and work and some of you may attract a new love or develop a strong attraction to something (a new way of living, a philosophy etc).
This aspect can also indicate "strokes of luck" and unexpected happy-making news.
To work with this bounty-full energy over the next 3 days, consider doing the following:
Be generous to yourself and others. Think generously, speak generously and act generously.
"The Buddha spoke about three kinds of giving: beggarly giving, friendly giving and kingly giving. Beggarly giving is when we give the least of what we have. We give what we don't really need, what we would never miss, what we might have otherwise thrown away. Friendly giving is when we give what we use and like — not our very best — but what we can afford and might appreciate having as a gift ourselves. Kingly giving is of a different order altogether. It is when we give the very best of what we have, when we give more than we keep for ourselves, when we give more than we can afford, when we give with no expectation of reciprocity." - Catherine Ingram, Passionate Presence
Jupiter in Sagittarius encourages us to explore; to travel beyond our stomping ground and to adopt a new mindset. Be adventurous.
