The Grand Cardinal Cross. ~ Sue Adair


The looming tax-filing deadline may not be the only thing causing us tension this month.

This April brings unparalleled excitement in our heavens. We will experience the very rare astrological event of the Grand Cardinal Cross, where four planets are aligned opposite each other like a square, which will form a cross. The planets are Pluto, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus.

Pluto will oppose Jupiter and Mars opposes Uranus at exact 90 degree angles forming a grand cross in the sky. Each planet will be sitting 13 degrees from their corresponding Cardinal astrological sign. Lucky 13!

The cross reaches its apex on April 23, 2014. Also thrown in for fun, Mars is in retrograde along with the Total Lunar Eclipse on April 14 and a Solar Eclipse on April 28.

This brings to us a time of powerful transformations, an awakening of our innermost desires, changes, volatility and expansion. Hoo-Boy!

But because the planets are opposing each other, this will cause friction and tension. Maybe that’s why I have been feeling like a pushmi-pullyu lately.

Rather than fearing any outcome, we can view it as an opportunity to resolve old issues. A time for us to bring about positive change.

But because Mars is in retrograde, it is best not to initiate change during this time. So, be calm and observe. But also be ready to move once your opportunity presents itself!

To center and calm ourselves during this turbulent time, we can meditate and journal. We may want to consider grounding.

Growth and change can be uncomfortable and scary. But we always feel better when we make it to the other side.

Let’s ride the wave! See you on the other side.
