  • Summer 2008

    This Summer starts with an ‘all or nothing’ disposition, an intensity when nothing is likely done in half measure.

This Summer starts on a fiery note with a Grand Trine in the Fire Signs linking all three of the Fire Signs with Mars in Aries, Venus and Saturn in Leo, and Jupiter and Pluto in Sagittarius.

Six planets are in Positive Signs [Fire – Air] and four planets are in Negative Signs [Earth – Water].
