Grand Fire Trine 2014


Grand fire trine octoberOn October the 6th there will be a Grand Fire Trine in the sky. We have had Jupiter trine Uranus since September 13 already. But when Mars in Sagittarius jumps into the ring, we should expect to see it ignite some of the promises of Jupiter trine Uranus. Grand trines can sometimes be a bit of a disappointment because they are essentially passive. This is not always the case however because much depends on the planets and the element involved. A fire trine with Mars, Jupiter and Uranus? Chilled? Not on your nelly! This is a grand trine of inspiration and change.

I have already looked at Jupiter trine Uranus:
“This aspect thrives on change, novelty and new inventions and will often generate this for themselves and for others. These people are natural visionaries and inventors who often make their impossible dreams come true. Their sheer faith in future rainbows keeps them focused on doing whatever it takes to get to the pot of gold.”

Unfortunately I haven’t had time to complete a post on Mars trine Jupiter or Mars trine Uranus, but a list of some of the celebs who have these aspects may help us understand the elements of the Grand Fire trine a little better.

Mars trine Jupiter:
Julian Clary (02′), Roseanne Barr (02′), Mia Farrow (13′) Ferruccio Lamborgini (25′), Stephen King (38′), Yehudi Menuhin, Robert Hand, Princess Anne Of UK, Oklahoma Bombing, Leonard Di Caprio, Jack Bruce, Helen Keller, Heinrich Himmler, Gregory Peck, Chrissie Hynde, Brian Eno and myself!
Mars trine Jupiter gives great courage. It is similar to Mars square Jupiter “ Bawdy, go-getters, pushy, competitive, conquistadors, adventurers, heroic, dashing knights, irrepressible, winners, persistent, rollicking rollers, hot-blooded, enthusiastic, dare-devils, reckless.” The trine may tone down some of the more impulsive and fiery tendencies, but not by much in this case since this is a fire trine anyway.

Mars trine Uranus:
Antoni Gaudi (00′), Brad Pitt (03′), Charles Atlas (15′), Christopher Ingrassia (10′), Phil Collins (19′), David Icke (25′), Houston/Brown Davison (13′), Marshall Applewhite (31′), John Cage, Lynn Redgrave, Jim Jones, Eva Braun.
Mars trine Uranus give an electric sex appeal. It is similar to Mars opposite Uranus “ Risk-takers, adrenaline junkies, fireworks, emergency workers, electrically-charged, explosive, flash.” Again the trine should make the aspect easier to work with, but we have Jupiter amping up the wattage here.


I see this Grand Fire Trine as having the potential to heal what was crucified around the time of April the 23rd. All three of these planets were involved in the Cardinal Grand Cross April was an eclipse month just like this one, so there is a development happening. Translating the dynamic cardinal square energy to fire trine energy is similar to progressing from the Knight of Wands to the King of Wands in the Tarot. The trine has matured the swashbuckling and almost naively brave Knight energy, into something more wise and focused. It’s still fiery, but more contained, like a laser. So here we are, six months on, hoping that the April wounds have healed. To me it feels like the big moment of taking off the bandages after plastic surgery. Will it be shock or awe, or maybe a bit of both? The cardinal signs have taken the biggest battering this year and Aries in particular (Especially Aries decan 2) will probably feel this fire trine the most strongly. Anyone with any planets at 15º fire or to a certain extent 15º air will feel this trine go into them like acupuncture needles. If you have ever had acupuncture you may have experienced that feeling of the skin almost sucking the needles into it when one really needs healing. Well that’s how this trine will feel.

On a mundane level, as I said in the 2014 Horoscope “ The generational healing aspect of Jupiter trine Uranus could manifest a great discovery or invention that revolutionises the way we look after our young. I think it will benefit mothers most of all and give them liberation. Both Uranus and Jupiter are about freedom. Jupiter as traditional religion could also benefit from Uranus’s enlightening influence. This trine may bring a reinterpretation of what religion means for us, which could shatter our belief systems perhaps. The October 8 Lunar Eclipse at 15º Aries falls right in the middle of this and is conjunct the Uranus part of the fire grand trine. This turns it into a high flying kite. This could be the great day of revelation.”


Mars on Ras Algethi: “If in good aspect, it is supposed to give much enjoyment and favors from women. However, if unconnected with helpful planets, it is said to cause much irritation, especially in connection with the female sex. But, by its very Mars nature, Ras Algethi corresponds to boldness and a drive to gain power.” ~ Elsbeth Ebertin

Jupiter on Dubhe in Ursa major, the constellation “ is said to give a quiet, prudent, suspicious, mistrustful, self-controlled, patient nature, but an uneasy spirit and great anger and revengefulness when roused.” ~ Robson

Uranus on Alpheratz: “Just, honorable, good speaker, domestic harmony if male, but not so fortunate for female, benefit from practical application of ideas, interest in occultism, considerable psychic power if female, favorable for gain.” ~ Robson

I’m personally very excited about the force of this wondrous grand trine. From October 11 – 14, the Grand Trine turns into a Kite. The minor grand trine part of the Kite is activated by the Sun/North Node at 18º Libra at the apex with Mars trine Jupiter at its base. Those with this plugging into their chart (18º Cardinal) can expect creative gifts and inspiration, which will help align them with their true life-path. Mars trine Jupiter gives the courage to push forward ones talents and dedication to ones art. If 100 critics rubbish your creations they are wrong! You are just ahead of your time. Those whose lives took a lightning bolt in April can use the inspired enthusiasm of this trine to get back on track again. This trine can re-invigorate you with confidence and give you the determination to succeed no matter what, despite any nay-sayers around you. So go on, get on your cosmic high-horse and reach for the stars!
