Cardinal Grand Cross Peaks from April 20th to April 25th
The Grand Cardinal Cross is an extremely powerful aspect and will trigger changes in areas of your life especially if you are getting too comfortable or have become stagnant. It could shake up your relationships, your finances, your career, your family, your life purpose or your spiritual direction, or maybe a combination of a few different life areas.
It might not be comfortable while it is happening, but keep in mind that it is going to be for your highest good in the long run.The Cross happens because 4 planets interact with each other, forming 2 Opposition aspects and 4 squares (read all about the planetary aspects!). The planets that participate in this Cardinal Grand Cross are Uranus from Aries (planet of revolution and breakthroughs, Jupiter from Cancer (planet of expansion), Mars from Libra (planet of aggression and drastic changes) and Pluto from Capricorn (planet of rebirth and transformation).
The Cardinal signs are:
- Aries which focuses on your self-development and finding your unique identity
- Libra is all about your relationships
- Cancer, your security and your home base
- Capricorn, your work and your life purpose
The Cardinal signs initiate action as they herald the seasons, so you’re going to be doing rather than thinking.
This Cardinal Grand Cross in the heavens which is so prevalent through the month of April and again in October of this year is triggering huge changes economically, politically, socially and of course personally for us all. Try not to resist those changes. The more you resist them, the more difficult your life will become. If you can go with them, trust the universe, and listen to your intuition, you will find yourself on a magical journey that will lead to greater fulfilment and happiness than you have ever experienced before.
If you are a fixed sun sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius), or if you have planets in fixed signs, your number one priority will be security and stability. Make sure you’re not getting too set in your ways otherwise this Cardinal Grand Cross could shake your whole life up. If you are too comfortable or in a rut, the Uranus energy of the planets could jolt you out into something new when you least expect it.
Many of us have a tendency to try to hang onto what’s familiar. Most children try to run back to their parents on their first day at school. However, gradually, they expand their horizons to meet other children, experience a new environment and learn new things. If you find change difficult, think of yourself as a toddler taking baby steps out of the nest. Allow yourself to make mistakes, to try things out, and to go beyond your normal comfort zone.
Alexander Graham Bell aptly said:
“When one door closes, another door opens; but we so often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”
On a global level, I am anticipating more wars, acts of terrorism, natural disasters, earthquakes, volcanoes erupting, sinkholes appearing, extreme heat and cold. Fukushima will continue to be a serious problem, the radiation levels much higher than we are aware of, and the powers that be hiding the information. Some psychics are saying that aliens are helping to mitigate the damage to our water and our air. We need to do our part too: meditate or focus for a few minutes every day on sending healing energy to Japan and all our planet.
There will be advances in farming without the use of chemicals and much kinder treatment of animals. People will be able to take the future into their own hands with communities working together to help one another.
On a personal level, it’s all about learning how to be adaptable to change.
Many of you have already experienced huge changes since November 2008 when Pluto went into Capricorn.
This Cardinal Grand Cross is all about ACTION.
The Cardinal signs want to DO something.
Where in your life do you need to ACT?
If you are aware of where in your life you need to take proactive steps and you are in the process of doing that, then this Grand Cross will not affect you adversely. If, however, you have been procrastinating, asking others for their opinions, trying to keep things exactly as they are, then this Grand Cross could be a big wake-up call for you.
During periods of huge change, there are always amazing opportunities. Even in the darkest depression of the 1930’s there were those people who started new businesses, who relied on their own instincts who were innovative and creative and ultimately extremely successful.
The same will be true during these times.
The key to surviving and thriving will be in your ability to face change, to be adaptable and flexible, and to be honest about the areas in your life that need a makeover. It’s a time of raising your vibrations, of shaking off what no longer serves you, living your passion and connecting with people in deeper and more meaningful ways. Deep down, most of us want to feel as though our lives made a difference and the Cardinal Grand Cross is paving the way for us to live at a higher frequency and to achieve greater happiness and joy.
