Several of the planets are lining up perfectly today in the Cardinal Grand Cross. Word of the day . . . Transformation. This is the Great Awakening of spring 2014 that I wrote about recently. Now is the time to think, act and be totally new.
This the week between the Lunar Eclipse and the upcoming Solar Eclipse on April 28th. I have to admit that the Lunar Eclipse was a real doozie. I had 3 of my friends in the hospital with emergency situations, like passing kidney stones. Nothing life threatening, but still stressful. Things seem to have settled down a bit now, even though today is the peak of the Cardinal Grand Cross. It’s about 2 p.m. here and nothing has happened in a big way in the world. Hopefully the rest of the day will be as calm as it is now. Actually, most astrology transits aren’t about one big day, but about a phase in life. We’re definitely in a phase of transition, but we might need to look at the big picture to get the whole view. This next week is a great time to change anything you want to freshen up and make new. It is spring, after all.
Today is the day that each of the four planets in the Cardinal Grand Cross is at 13 degrees of their signs. Pluto 13 Capricorn, Uranus 13 Aries, Jupiter 13 Cancer and Mars 13 Libra. Of course, Mars is still retrograding and turns direct at 9 degrees on May 19th. Mars will then trigger off both Pluto and Uranus again in mid June. By that time, Uranus has moved all the way to 17 degrees and Pluto will have retrograded back to 12 degrees. So the exact Grand Cross is now and will separate soon, to be gone forever. Every chart has a balance to it and Neptune is the balancing planet right now with a healing trine to Jupiter in Cancer. Venus is also trining both Jupiter as well as Saturn, so that is another balance, even though short lived.
