I am migrating some articles from the old site so that they can be indexed here. The Grand Sextile of 2013 will give a repeat performance on August 31st, this time with the Moon in Cancer. This Grand Sextile is a rare occurrence, and the last time it occurred was during the Harmonic Concordance of 2003. This is the Tenth Anniversary of the Harmonic Concordance

Two interlocking grand trines (120 degree angles) in water and earth signs.
Two oppositions (180 degree angle).
A hexagon of sextiles (60 degree angles) forming a Grand Sextile.
Two “T-square” formations (an opposition where both planets are square (90 degrees) to another).

This is an exceptionally unusual formation that is filled with symbolism of the mystery schools. The interlocking grand trines that form the six-pointed […]
