So as we begin June we are entering what astrologers have been talking about since the beginning of the year, this lucky Water Trine in Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces! 
Being a triple water myself, (Scorpio Sun, Pisces Moon, Cancer rising) I feel at home in these realms of feeling, sensing and dissolving into the greater sea of me. This accessing of our greater selves, our intuition and experience of oneness is something that is always available to all of us, and now at this particular moment in time, there is a window that is extremely conducive for all of us to access this magic.
Here are the Astral Insights for this opportune time. First from Sarah Varcas and her Astro-Awakenings:
“Throughout the month of June we’re blessed by the presence of Grand Trines in Water signifying emotional sensitivity, a further awakening of intuitive faculties and an opportunity to draw upon our innate creativity in the pursuit of a more balanced and harmonious life.”
“These are markedly different energies to those we encountered throughout the month of May, and they may well come as something of a relief to those who encountered challenges galore back then. This month we have the opportunity to turn within, connect with our divine essence and uncover aspects of ourselves and our existence that have remained hidden from us until now.”
“…the emphasis this month is on action that demonstrates our level of faith, or perhaps it would be better to say action born of faith. We may be called upon to do things which, on the face of it, seem nonsensical, risky or unwise by ‘common sense’ standards. But the common sense of the new world is not the same as that of the old one we’re gradually leaving behind. These days common sense takes on an entirely different hue in the face of heightened perception, deeper intuition and a more steady and enduring connection to the Divine within.”
“This is the common sense of knowing that life presents all the sign-posts and information that we need, and ultimately only we can know the right thing for ourselves to do, no matter the judgements placed upon our choices by others.”
“…As many people become more and more sensitive to the subtle energy fields within which we live, it can be tempting to focus on what we pick up from the people around us. As we become more aligned with the underlying collective energy field out of which we all blossom into physical existence, we can easily misuse the information it provides us. Not out of malice or even with any specific intent, but merely from lack of experience or misunderstanding. Just because we pick something up about someone else, become aware of their unspoken feelings and emotions or sense an unmet need within them, it doesn’t mean we have to respond to it, make it right in some way or correct their perceived imbalance.”
“Indeed, what we see in another is often a reflection of the very issue within ourselves that we need to address, and in doing so we thereby bring that same healing to the whole world. What we do within ourselves we do within the collective too. We cannot heal ourselves and it not benefit others, just as we cannot hurt ourselves and not hurt others by those very same actions.”
“Experience of this collective energy field forms a key part of this month. Boundaries are dissolving and separation from the Source of all that is, whatever we perceive that to mean, will become increasingly uncomfortable. We may well feel an inexorable draw into something altogether more radiant and whole than we have ever experienced previously…”
“…we have an opportunity to turn within and listen to the messages that come to us from there. Those feelings, sensations, thoughts, or just plain old ‘knowing’ which tells us what we need to be aware of at any given moment. In doing this we can request guidance on how to manage these new levels of awareness in our daily lives.”
“We can ask for clarity about when to share what we perceive and when to remain silent; when to act upon our intuition and when to merely acknowledge its messages for action at another time. Like learning a new language, we need to know how all these different bits come together to form a cohesive whole. And to do that we must go within to truly understand the value of the information we can now access, encoded within the energetic field all around us….”
“…This path of awakening that we all walk now often requires a great deal from us, sometimes more than we believe we have to give. But whenever we find ourselves doubting our ability to play our part and respond as we know we must, we are merely encountering another aspect of ourselves that needs healing, because in truth we have everything we need and will never be pushed beyond where we cannot go.”
“In fact, there is no beyond. We are everything and everything is us. Fear of snapping under the strains of life arises from a belief that we are small, limited, vulnerable beings, when in fact we are divine energy in human form, working itself out, refining itself, purifying itself until it can express itself fully through these forms of you and I…”
“…Remember the backdrop this month: those creative Grand Trines in Water connecting us into something far greater than just ‘little old me and my dramas’. They’re our safety net and drawing upon their energy and wisdom can surely get us through any challenges during this time.”
“…So if we find ourselves seduced by old thoughts and habits now, we’d best resolve not to allow them the time of day. Far better to find a creative outlet for our feelings, express them in ways we may not have tried before, and then let them go. We don’t have to gnaw away at something like a dog with a bone until we get it all working our way.”
“We can, now more than ever, choose to let go and walk away, or take a different path around a burgeoning conflict instead of straight through the middle of it. There are as many new ways to manage life’s challenges as there are people on the planet and this month is a time to find the new ones in us, putting them into practice with all our spiritual might!”
From Elaine Kalantarian from Blue Moon Astrology:
“A Window of Opportunity — Grand Trine in the Water Element with Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Neptune…”
“Mercury will be first in position, perfecting the grand trine …June 3rd, trining Neptune first at 12:17pm PDT and trining Saturn at 6:22pm.”
“Venus will move into place to form her grand trine five days later on Friday, June 7th: perfecting the trine to Neptune at 4:46am PDT and to Saturn at 8:23am, all the while Saturn and Neptune drift toward their own perfect trine, exact on June 11th.”
“Saturn and Neptune, Neptune especially, are slow moving planets…The trine between these two planets suggests an open channel between heaven (Neptune) and earth (Saturn)…”
“When these contrasting planetary principles fall in harmonious trine, we have the potential to lift the veil and move between the worlds, to bridge this gap in our own lives: to bring inspiration and vision down to Earth and intuit ways in which our ideas and dreams can be made real.”
“There is however a major caveat with trines, for while they represent good luck, supportive circumstances and favorable conditions that fall right in our lap, yet at the same time, we often lack the motivation to do much of anything with these opportunities. Therefore trines can indicate entirely unused or under-utilized potential by transit or in the natal chart…”
“So, while these subtle grand trines form over this week, in order to make use of this window of opportunity, we must make the conscious effort to harness these beneficial energies. This is a good time to connect with divine guidance for specific purposes.”
“Artists and musicians can more readily connect with their muse. Meditation, and other kinds of spiritual, inner work should come much more easily, as Saturn self-discipline is aligned with Neptunian flights of the imagination. We may also be much more able to see how we can make good practical use of the insights and creative ideas that will no doubt be flowing this week.”
Beautiful heart-felt insight from astrologer Suzanne Wagner:
“A Grande Trine in Water is a rare event and it can catalyze tremendous suppressed emotions to surface…”
“The question is how do you risk and allow yourself to step beyond into the unknown when you want to fall back into the old patterns. You know there is no doorway back to that reality. Doorways are opening up towards a very different place but the experience seems to be so strange and out of your comfort zone that not only do you not know how to progress, you do not know even the steps to take that will allow authentic expression. “
“…It is time to not let the fear that we learned from our childhood and past experiences to distort the incredible options that are opening with this Grande Trine. All we have to share with others is where we have risked in our life to uncover the deeper truth of ourself that is buried under all the judgement, ego, and projections. All we can truly share is our own experiences of risk, bravery, courage, and where we have been unrelenting in discovering who we are underneath this illusion we have created to make ourself comfortable…”
“None of us will walk the same path. None of us have the same blocks from past lives that we need to remember, unkink, and transmute into a higher form. But by being willing to walk in our own personal shadow of death and confront the distortions and illusions that limit the expression of our light, we give encouragement to others to find the magic and mystery that is their personal journey.”
“I choose consciously to be a beacon of a possibility. I want to find freedom and peace from my own mind. I want to breathe the air of understanding. I want to hear the song of my soul. Everything else is just a distraction drawing me back into my safe reality…”
“…So as this Grande Water Trine begins open to the huge flow of emotions, intuitive experiences, creative expressions, and dreams. See what could happen if you just suspended your mind for a moment. What could you discover about yourself that you did not know existed within you? There is a mystery to uncover and it is hidden in the deep dreams of Pisces, it is hidden in the emotional expression of Cancer, and it is waiting for you in the sexy waters of Scorpio.”
So let’s welcome the blessings of this Grand Trine in water signs of Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio as see it as an opportunity to get in touch with the Sacred Feminine energy of water!
This is 2013 Year of Water Snake and Feminine Energy rising,  and we can view this trine as a catalyst to awaken our kundalini and our dormant powers of intuition, healing abilities and  emotional strength!
It’s a Goddess energy, and like Elaine Kanterian mentions in her wonderful article about Venus in Cancer valuing Action, it’s the Mother Bear archetype rising! Read her article here to get informed and inspired by the important work that Dr. Vandana Shiva is doing.
Blessings to all!
