When it comes to seeking answers from astrology, often we all go into our quest with the same mission. And that mission is often two fold. How can we increase joy, and decrease the amount of stress in our lives? No matter what your question is, your answers often always boil down to those two key questions. We live in a world that is in constant motion, at a very high pace, and this is leading to a higher level of stress in our world than we have ever seen. The faster your energy, the higher your stress. And this can be a debilitating problem for many when that stress becomes overwhelming. What can you do to alleviate that? Increase your joy. But as you have probably learned, it is not as easy as just saying, you want more joy in your life. And this is why we are always offering you different methods, or tools in your tool box, to help you find that joy. And once in a while we see an aspect from astrology that gives you a little bit of extra magic to help you find that happy place.
This time around it is the Grand Trine in the Fire Signs. And this is lovely energy that is happening right now, for the next couple of weeks, that you can use to increase joy and decrease stress. What does this mean, really? Essentially speaking, a Grand Trine is when three planets form a triangular shape in the same elements of signs. This time around we have the Grand Trine in Fire Signs, and that means we have Mars in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries, and Jupiter in Leo. This is an aspect that began on September 24 and will continue all the way through to October 14. And since we have some eclipse energy coming in shortly after that, along with a Mercury retrograde, you want to harness this Grand Trine energy now, to overcome this stressful energy that will be on its way. So how can you do this? By harnessing the energy that the fire signs are igniting in you right now, whether you are a Fire Sign or not! Aries energy is daring, so you want to take some risks right now. Leo is creative, so exercising that creative bone will work out well for you. Sagittarius likes to keep moving, so harness that energy as well. When you combine all of these themes, along with the energy of the Grand Trine aspect over the next few weeks, you will reap miracles as a result. But how can you do that? Whether it is in work, or in love, here are 5 easy ways to enjoy, and use wisely, this awesome fire sign energy coming your way right now.
1. Movement is key.
Fire Sign energy is swift and passionate, and it doesn’t sit still very long, or even at all. So movement in the area of your life that is causing you the most stress is mission critical. This does not mean physical movement, though for some it will. What it means is that you want to see progress or development in these key areas. Is work stressing you out? Is your relationship in a rut? Create movement by using the themes of this Grand Trine to create progress. To do this, remember what signs are involved here, and simply adopt those signs, and that energy, into your daily life. And you don’t need to be a fire sign to capture this magic! Be creative like Leo would be, be daring like Aries would be, or be adventurous like Sagittarius loves to be. Whatever it is that needs movement, enter this energy into your action plan and you’ve already won half the battle.
2. Expect the unexpected.
Have you been wondering how to become less stressed about the unexpected events in life? In this Grand Trine we see Uranus in Aries. So this is the planet of unexpected events and energy combined with the zodiac sign that starts new beginnings, and has a lot of daring energy. Rather than waiting for unexpected and stressful events to come your way, be the initiator of events in your life. Don’t wait for life to come and happen to you, take charge! Is it work that you need a boost in? Money? Love? Get back in the captain seat and do something completely unexpected, and completely out of character. This will be easiest for Aries, but all zodiac signs can use this energy wisely. Make a bold move in love, make a bold pitch to the boss, or make a huge change in your financial plans and create the unexpected events yourself. When YOU are in charge of the unexpected events, you are in charge of the results. So take charge!
3. Be creative.
Ask any of the Water Signs what they do to relax, and you will often hear answers like write poetry, dance, or make a painting. These are great things to take on in this period if you are hoping to reap miracles with this Grand Trine. But this creative energy is Fire Energy. Where water sign creativity is often very emotional, fire sign creative energy is very passionate. So find something that you are passionate about, and unleash the creative energy. Again, ask yourself, where are you in a rut? Where are you feeling the most stress? And where do you need the most joy? When you have your answer, come up with an action plan (Aries energy) to unleash some creative potential. Send a sexy love note or text to someone that you normally never would. Bring your passion into the workplace and focus on the areas of your job that really excite you and ignite you, and then do something creative in that area. Yes if you want to create an actual piece of art or creative piece, do so, and the Grand Trine will reward you. Just remember to be passionate and exciting while you do so, as this is fire sign creativity fueling you now. And when you do, you will see that passionate creativity can not only be very lucrative, but will also relieve a significant amount of stress in your life.
4. Take risks.
This is one element of this Grand Trine that some zodiac signs, like Virgo, or Capricorn, may have trouble with. The Earth Signs and the Water Signs like things as they are. They don’t like to take risks. But this energy is all about managing the unexpected events in our life, and decreasing our stress. Rather than wait to see what risks others are taking, and then adjusting your life strategy accordingly, be the one that is taking risks right now. This again puts you in the driver’s seat and puts you in charge of your destiny. A lot of the stress in our lives is caused by just not knowing what is going to happen. When you are the one moving, launching creativity, and taking risks, then the uncertainty may still exist, but you are in control of it. There is no greater way in life to alleviate stress, than to take control of it. So take some risks, be bold, and you will find this energy as exciting as it sounds when it comes to creating epic changes in your life, and decreasing the stress at the same time.
5. Bravely follow that intuition.
Fire Sign energy is also very intuitive. Water Sign energy is as well, but fire sign intuition is a little different. Intuition and gut feelings are fueled by the sparks of passion. So when you have a Grand Trine in Fire Signs, this intuition is heightened for all Earthlings. Again you are given the opportunity to get in the driver’s seat of your destiny, and what better tool to guide you than your own solid gut. Now, here’s where the brave part comes in. Many times we hear what our gut and instinct is telling us, but we choose to live life a different way, because our gut or instinct is suggesting something that creates fear. The Grand Trine in the Fire Signs is no time to live a fear based existence. You have to follow those bold moves your instinct is telling you, if you want to see creativity and success. And this will also relieve the stress in your life as well. Once again, following what your instinct is telling you is going to lead you to the answers you seek, and to new and ignited directions on your journey. Making fear based, and easy or safe decisions right now is going to keep you exactly where you are. Are you looking for change? Then time to change the way you look at things. Bravely and boldly follow that instinct, and watch where the beauty of the Grand Trine in the Fire Signs takes you.
What do you think? Are you ready to capture that energy of the Grand Trine in the Fire Signs? If you do, you will find you will find that joy increases, stress decreases, and your outlook on life suddenly becomes more exciting. It’s all about mindset, and you are in control. So remember, between September 26 (and yes that means right now!) and October 12, to alleviate stress you want to get moving, follow that intuition, be creative and brave, and let the spark of the fire signs fuel the way. How are you going to use this energy? I can’t wait to find out!
