Jupiter trines Uranus exact on June 22nd. This harmonious connection between the two slow-moving planets has been building for weeks, encouraging us to explore and expand in unchartered territory. This is the last of three times they trine (the first was September 25, 2014, the second March 3, 2015).
Jupiter entered Leo in July 2014, and has encouraged expansion of creativity, self-expression, the inner child, romance, generosity, pride, and drama. Jupiter magnifies the ego in Leo.
Uranus in Aries is a slow transit (2012-2018) that demands freedom via independence, pioneering, sudden changes, and doing-your-own-thing. Aries is impatient and Uranus tends to burn bridges in pursuit of liberation, via sudden upheavals. Aries is identity, and Uranus wants you to cut all that is old, stale, and conventional.
The two planets harmoniously trine each other at 20º Aries/Leo, creating positive expansion of originality and innovation. This aspect lacks tension, but there may still be growing pains: Jupiter inflates what it touches (good or bad) and Uranus violently shakes the dust off. But the two open new avenues, and encourage you to leave the past behind.
Trines can be taken for granted. If has been difficult to leave your old, comfy, safe way of life, remember that this is a chance to become liberated from what shackles you. Settling for less than you truly desire, all to meet status-quo or other’s expectations, is a self-imposed prison.
Will you stay in your cell, or step outside and face the unknown?
19º – 24º of the Fire signs will feel this strongest.
