Grand Sextile July29 Lunar Astrology Guide

Weekly Astrology Guide – “Your Spectacular Role in the World”

There is a spectacular astrological formation in the sky this coming week, and it supports the possibility for you to expand your own spectacular role in the world. The upcoming Grand Sextile truly is spectacular – just look at the chart to see for yourself!

Whatever your current role in the world, Monday’s formation of the Grand Sextile in the sky is providing extra fuel and energy to “expand” your influence of leadership, in your circle of friends, work, and community.

The Grand Sextile

The Grand Sextile: Last Quarter Moon July 2013When the Moon moves into position at 7° Taurus on Monday, precisely at the time of the Last Quarter Moon, it completes the extremely rare “Grand Sextile.” For those of you unfamiliar with the form, it’s created when there are six planets each located 60° apart. The six planets form a perfect hexagon or a star-tetrahedron.

The energy associated with a Grand Sextile is stable and balanced, allowing for the free flow of life’s vital forces. The result is the opportunity to feel an almost perfect flow of harmonizing energy. This week’s Grand Sextile has two special qualities which create the specific opportunity (through the Jupiter and the Sun) for expansion and leadership this coming week.

The Purpose of Expansion – Jupiter’s Role in Energizing the Grand Sextile

First, there is an special quality of “expansion” which comes from Jupiter’s position within the pattern. Combined with a cluster of other planets at one of the sextile points, Jupiter becomes the “driver” of the Grand Sextile, focusing the special energy as fuel for expansion and growth. Jupiter drives the energy because Jupiter always uses the principles of organization, harmonization, and assimilation for its purpose of providing expansion in your life.

At the most basic soul level, the idea of expansion feels good to us, but why? It’s because “Spirit” by nature is expansive. Spirit, or Source, is constantly expands by creating harmony, unity, cooperation, and new connections. This quality of expansive harmony is the very nature of Spirit working in the physical realm.

The Sun’s Role – Your New Vision of Inspired Leadership in the World

The second quality is a gift of inspiration and leadership, and it comes from the Sun, which is the only planetary body outside of the formation. As such, it’s creating the doorway or opening that allows the expansive energy to be expressed in your life, through the solar principle of leadership and illumination.

The most important thing to focus on during the week following this magnificent astrological formation is the creative tension the Sun is providing. The opportunity with the Sun (7° Leo) comes from the fact that it squares both the Moon and Saturn. This provides a creative outlet and container for the energy of the Grand Sextile.

With the Sun’s energy combining with the Grand Sextile, you’ll have the opportunity to feel yourself wanting to take on more of a leadership position within your sphere of influence. With this feeling you can expand throughout your existing social circle and business relationships. With this incredible flow of energy you can easily begin to feel yourself in a new and more spectacular role in the world.

Experiencing the Grand Sextile Flow of Energy

Seattle Astrology Grand SextileThe perfect flow of energy from the hexagonal Grand Sextile results in a high frequency of internal harmony. The feeling this creates can result in a level of internal balance and flow that is rarely experienced. Cherish it. Revel in its harmony and feel the stability it provides.

The effects of the Grand Sextile will be especially strong during the 5 hour golden period which begins at 8 am and ends at 1 pm PDT, Monday, July 29th.

After the golden period ends, and for the rest of the week, you’ll be able to feel the lingering imprint it made. By keying into this imprint of harmony and internal balance, you can access your own expansion and the insight of a more spectacular or expanded role for yourself in whatever you do. Accessing the feelings you experienced during this golden period will increase your awareness of how you might expand your leadership role in your own situation.

This week, as you feel these beautifully balanced and stable energies flowing, give yourself the opportunity to experience and envision a larger role of influence and visible leadership in your world. With the inspiration of the vision, then feel yourself expanding into it. Have a wonderful week.

The Grand Sextile: Is this the Holy Grail of Astrology?

by Steven Shroyer, Seattle Astrology USA

Last Quarter Moon July 2013There’s a lot of excitement about next week’s astrological pattern called the “Grand Sextile,” which will be appearing on July 29, 2013. This article takes a deeper look at the meaning and relevance of the Grand Sextile formation. (Please see The Lunar Matrix for the July 29 Astrology Guide.)

I have always looked at this cosmic pattern with great curiosity and I love its symmetry. The Grand Sextile looks spectacular, with the shape of a perfect hexagon, or a perfect six-sided star.

The energy associated with a Grand Sextile is stable and balanced, allowing for the free flow of life’s vital forces. The result is the opportunity to feel an almost perfect flow of harmonizing energy. Through its symmetry, the Grand Sextile holds a grid of harmony and balance. It also provides a superior level of organization that can be used in multiple ways, especially in various types of management.

What is the Meaning and Significance of a Sextile?

A Grand Sextile is a pattern of six individual sextiles (60° each) linked together to form a circle of 360°. To understand the meaning of a Grand Sextile it’s helpful to understand the significance of a single sextile pattern.

A single sextile is created when a distance of 60° separates two planets. Whenever it occurs this is considered an important accent within an astrology chart. In the most general sense, sextiles indicate a function of management and organization.

There are two types of sextiles, and each one indicates a particular type of organization.
The first type is a separating sextile where the faster moving planet has moved 60° away from the slower planet. A separating sextile indicates a new style of organization, for the purpose of inspiration and momentum. The driving dynamic is creating new structure that can be built on.

The second type is an applying sextile where the faster moving planet has almost completed its cycle and is only 60° away from its next conjunction. (In this case, it is actually 300° away from the slower moving planet.) An applying sextile indicates management that is focused on re-organization or re-orientation. The driving dynamic is centered around adapting to changing values.

The main difference between the two types of sextiles is that one creates new momentum and the other creates change. In other words, the “separating sextiles” are based on creating structure around new values, and the “applying sextiles” are more of a reaction to what’s not working.

The Challenge of a Grand Sextile

A Grand Sextile always contains both types of sextiles. These two types are working together to support the larger pattern. By reading the pattern of individual sextiles and their accompanying planets, you can identify strengths and see different ways that management and organization can be applied to different situations.

While the overall form contains dynamic elements, at the same time, because of its almost perfect symmetry, it also inherently lacks the dynamic interaction or tension needed to spur growth and transformation. In other words, an individual sextile holds tension and the potential for growth, However, once six sextiles are joined, the overall pattern of harmony stabilizes and neutralized the expressions of the individual sextiles. They lose their emphasis and their individual accent in favor of the larger pattern of harmony.

The challenge of a Grand Sextile chart is to find the creative outlet that provides enough tension to allow for the expression of all of the harmonized energies. The opportunities for growth in a chart are always identified by the patterns that create dynamic tension. In the Grand Sextile chart this pattern, the “accent,” must be found outside of the sextile itself.

What is an Astrological Accent?

An astrological accent is what is emphasized or what stands out in a chart. For example, the accent could be a planet isolated and standing by itself in a hemisphere. It could be the 90° angle between two planets that forms what astrologer’s call a square. It could be a group of planets (usually 4 or more) bunched tightly together forming a stellium. In a Grand Sextile, it could be the planet (or planets) not part of the pattern. In the case of the July 29, 2013, Grand Sextile, there is only ONE planet (the Sun) not included in the pattern so this creates the clear accent.

Accents are important in a chart because they create a dynamic quality which provides the catalyst for personal growth. Accents define creative purpose or tension in a chart and this tension is the builder of character and maturity. Their specific meanings and roles depend on the type of accent involved.

With a grand sextile, the accent is often the planet which is “not” included as one of the six points of the hexagon. Being separate creates a type of dynamic tension and channels extra energy into that planets force for growth and transformation. This is precisely the situation we have with the July 29, 2013 grand sextile formation (read article). The Sun isn’t part of the Grand Sextile formation and thus it channels all the free-flowing energy which would otherwise be stuck and spinning within the hexagon with no place to go.

Real-Life Analysis – Grand Sextile in a Birth Chart

Let’s take a brief look at how the Grand Sextile is expressed in a natal birth chart.

I’m familiar with the birth charts of two people with this beautiful Grand Sextile pattern. Relying on the analysis of the original astrologer, Leyla Rael, their lives were smooth sailing, with no drama, and no extra excitement. There was nothing particular to point to as being dramatic or challenging. Rael noted that they were both great managers, however they were so good at keeping everything running smoothly that they didn’t receive the recognition of the great job they were doing.

What surprised me the most, after reviewing what was said about these individuals, was how uneventful their lives were. My analysis is that with nothing or no one to push against, their lives flowed with stable, balanced energy that was almost unnoticed. This is similar to a perfectly round ball rolling along on a smooth surface. After all, in most cases it’s the sharp edges and bumps in the road that build our character and make life interesting.

The challenge of this cosmic formation in a birth chart is finding the opportunity for growth, in the face of such strong balance and harmony. Both of these charts had accents, but the overall dynamic was so stable and harmonious perhaps there wasn’t enough tension to create personal motivation for change or growth.

The Grand Sextile in a Transit

Transits are the passing formations in the sky that appear daily throughout our lives. Because of the rarity of a Grand Sextile, the most common scenario for experiencing one is as a transit. For example, those who are born on July 29, 2013 between 8 am and 1 pm will experience a Grand Sextile birth chart. The rest of us will experience the form as a transit.

Whenever a transit appears, it represents an opportunity for growth. The challenge of experiencing the Grand Sextile as a transit in your life centers around recognizing your personal opportunity for growth. You can recognize this opportunity by working with the accent in the chart. There is an opportunity for growth, however experiencing a Grand Sextile will most of all feel wonderful because of it’s stability and balanced flow of energy. It may feel so good that you may lack the extra motivation to do anything but enjoy it. Perhaps that is OK!

I believe the natural tendency will be to get immersed in feeling the incredible stability and balanced flow of energy it provides. Because of its dramatic flow of harmonizing energy it is much easier to sit back during a Grand Sextile and feel how good life is, thinking to yourself, “Wow, life’s great. I’m so blessed.” Perhaps this feeling of appreciation for the blessings of life, is its greatest gift. Maybe you will experience the Grand Sextile as a much needed Cosmic break. Maybe you will seize the opportunity for growth by working with the accent. Either way life is good.
