In astrology there are various chart patterns, with names such as Grand Trine, Grand Cross, T-Square and Kite. Such configurations appear to be common, because many astrologers like to fill their charts up with junk: asteroids, minor planets, spaceships, whatever. However if you restrict yourself to the Sun, the Moon and the main planets, and you insist on close aspects, the main configurations aren’t quite so common.
On August 26 2018 we see a Kite. A Kite is a Grand Trine bisected by an opposition. The Grand Trine is an equilateral triangle, with three or more planets making 120-degree aspects to each other. In this case it is the Sun in Virgo making 120-degree aspects to Saturn and Uranus. Saturn and Uranus are in turn making 120-degree aspects to each other.
The final part of this Kite is a Full Moon. By definition, this is an opposition aspect, the Sun being opposite the Moon. The Moon is at the tip of the Kite, making 60-degree aspects to Saturn and Uranus.
This kite is tense. Peopling wanting to break free from their shackles. There is also the potential for violence and destruction, with existing structures coming under extreme pressure. In fact, this kite is probably one of the most significant astrological events of 2018.
In terms of geography, the part of the world that is most likely to be affected by the Kite is Western Europe, with Paris, London, Brussels and Barcelona getting special attention from the cosmos. Brexit, Catalan independence and the French president’s declining popularity could all be thrown into the pot. Not to mention random violence.
Finally, there’s timing. Full Moons can hit home immediately, but two weeks, until the following New Moon, is a broader and more realistic time frame.
