Briefly, the Grand Sextile pattern in astrology signifies the mutual and
unobstructed flow of energy between six planets through a sequence of setile
(60 degree) aspects.
Add to that, the flow of energy that each of the six main planets in the
configuration receives from two other trining planets, and one may see that the
path of that flow between and among those six planets is wide open. This effect
is only enhanced by the aforementioned tight aspect orbs among the planets. In
essence, this energy flow creates a very powerful vortex, the exact likes of
which does not occur in the 6,000 year span between 3000 BX and 3000 CE that I
have personally researched, and perhaps a good deal longer.
Aside from the phenomena of the Grand Sextile, the planetary energies present
at each of the pattern's six "stations" are very appropriate to a
moment that would carry the astrological signature of the Ascension. Consider
that qualities of the planets as they are represented through the metaphors of
The Sun - the primal energy; the cause for being; masculine in
nature; the basic will and vitality that inspires life; our creativity and
conscious aim; that which expresses the best of who we are.
The Moon - the archetypical feminine; the mother; the personal
subconscious mind, memory and imagination; the tidal ebb and flow of emotion;
the avenues of habit and instinct; the shelter of home.
Jupiter - the king of the gods; beneficience, good fortune and
expansion; the publication of ideals; the higher mind, wisdom and enthusiasm;
generosity, optimism and increase on all levels.
Mars - the courage, desire, energy and willingness to act; the
stimulation of passion; the ability to be the spiritual warrior.
Saturn - the physical bones of the Earth and our bodies; the
disciplinarian and 'tester' of our metal; the limitations of the physical;
endurance, perseverance, and stability.
Chiron - the crystal rainbow bridge between physicality and
spirit, the inner and outer planets; the wounded healer; Christ consciousness;
initiation; the interface between God and Godling.

Lets take a look at where the planets will be on August 16th and 17th. It is
interesting that all the trines will be starting about August 9th, when the Sun
trines Saturn in Sagittarius (Sun in Leo, Saturn in Sagittarius). Venus will be
in Leo, trine Saturn and Sagittarius. Mars will be in Leo just passing the
trine of Saturn in Sagittarius. As we get closer to the 16th of August, Mercury
will be in Leo still Trine Saturn in Sagittarius. So there is significant
amount of fire as we note Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and
Uranus, all the planets except Neptune and Pluto, which are exactly Sextile
(not exact but in positive configuration to each other), Neptune in Capricorn
and Pluto in Scorpio. We have seven planets in fire and on the 12th and 13th of
August, we also have the Moon in fire, so that would be a total of eight, so I
wonder why they didn't pick the 13th to get the Moon in there too? Moon will be
in Gemini on the 16th and 17th of August, and it will be Moon oppose Saturn at
sundown on the 17th of August. The date correlates with the end of the Aztec
and Mayan Calendars. But still, that is a lot of power.
