Help Yourself Out With These Fire Trines

April 2nd gifts us with two fire trines. Mercury (at 4 degrees Aries) trines Saturn Rx in Sagittarius, and the Sun (at 12 degrees Aries) trines Jupiter Rx in Leo.

Trines are harmonious, and therefore, easy to overlook. But they do offer a path of least resistance. Mercury trine Saturn (which I wrote about here) can present an opportunity to focus your impulsive ideas/responses, or your angry words. Strong ideas, made palatable. Sun trine Jupiter is pure optimism and confidence. The push for the audience's attention, and the assurance to make it happen. Aries Sun's ambition is expanded by Jupiter in Leo's faith that X deserves to happen...will happen...because, well, why not? Why shouldn't it work out?

These are really nice aspects. You get Saturn's structure and Jupiter's hope, activated at the same time. Saturn and Jupiter are both retrograde (reversed) which suggests a situation that's being revisited. A second chance, or an intensified effort. There's a chance to flow with the current, and enable something positive. You can make it easy on yourself, if only for a day.

The trines are exact tomorrow, but you may be feeling them now. If you have natal/progressed planets, angles or Nodes from:

  • 3 to 5 degrees of the Fire signs, you'll feel Mercury/Saturn
  • 11 to 13 degrees of the Fire signs, you'll feel Sun/Jupiter

BTW, Jupiter stations direct on April 8th (I'll blog about this) so your chance to revisit that issue, or mull over your opportunities/expansion, is almost over. Once Jupiter goes direct, it will be full steam ahead.
