In 2021, there are four significant days when three planets in the sky will form a grand trine. In astrology, a grand trine is a pattern that forms when three planets on a chart are the same distance from each other, creating an equilateral triangle. This shape is believed to foster confidence, creativity, flow, and harmony.
On a natal chart, the character traits and talents conferred by the Grand Trine come fairly easily and naturally to the native. It is a harmonious and very stable configuration. People usually are very blessed born with a Grand Trine in their natal chart since they somehow feel things are coming to them without much effort (and sometimes even find it hard to understand what it would be hard for others). In Horary Astrology, each year when a grand trine is formed in the sky, the cosmos is experiencing a collectively harmonious moment, especially when this happens for the first time in the sky in one element in that year. I call this the golden time/day as it is the best day for us to make wishes and even initiate a new beginning.
Each year, the first time any three planets forming a grand trine in the sky in each element (fire, earth, air and water) symbolises the best time to perform our ritual for spiritual connection and making wishes come true. A fire grand trine represents active inspiration, bold creativity, enthusiasm, pride, and courage. An earth grand trine represents worldly wisdom, an instinct for what's needed for bountiful harvests, sensualism, and financial success. An air grand trine represents ambitious thinking and planning; intellectual curiosity; detachment and calm; and social engagement. A water grand trine represents a vivid inner life, strong feelings, intimacy, artistry, sentimentality, and a desire to reflect. Especially when the Moon is involved in the grand trine, it becomes so personal to us, since the Moon is the symbol of our deep emotional needs and desire.
So, in 2021, what are the four paramount days when a Grand Trine happens in every element?
(We use the triangle symbol to represent a trine aspect in Astrology)
*2nd Jan 2021, first Grand Trine in Fire signs:

*3rd Jan 2021, first Grand Trine in Earth signs:

*29th Mar 2021, first Grand Trine in Air signs:

*25th May 2021, first Grand Trine in Water signs:

Since water sign is the element of emotion, sensitivity and intuitive knowledge, Neptune (Roman God of dreams and spirituality) trine Mars (Roman God of action and motivation) with the Moon (emotional needs) is a wonderful starry position to wish for spiritual growth, creative manifestation and cosmic guidance.
On those critical days in 2021, remember to light up a candle, and say your prayers. Depending on the element of the Grand Trine, think about the feelings of the element and how they relate your desire. For example, for a fire Grand Trine, imagine you are next to a warm hearth and surrounded by the fire spirits; if you are doing your water Grand Trine ritual, play some ocean wave sounds as background music and imagine you are seeing limitless blue water.
If you have crystals, put them in front of you or hold them in hands. Crystals have amazingly healing powers as an important part of our ritual. For fire Grand Trines, Jasper, Sunstone, Ruby and Bloodstone are very helpful; for water Grand Trines, use Aquamarine, Turquoise, Moonstone or Malachite; for earth Grand Trines, use Topaz, Tiger’s Eye, Lapis Lazuli, Smoky Quartz and Garnet; if you are doing the air ritual, try Opal, Amethyst, Jade and Aventurine.
Follow your imagination. There is no source more accurate than that. After all, it’s what you believe spiritually and your pure intention that have the true power.
