By Jonathan Cainer This week’s most encouraging alignment is the trine between Mars and Neptune. A trine is any angle of 120 degrees between two points in the sky from the viewpoint of an observer on earth. It is considered helpful, favourable, positive.

By Jonathan Cainer How often do we see two Full Moons happening in one calendar month? Some say it happens only ‘once in a blue moon.’ By that measure then, July is unusual and potentially auspicious.
