Here we are in the thick of things.
As I write, the Grand Cross is reaching its point of maximum intensity.
Despite some terrible tragedies such as the Korean ferry sinking, I’m pleased to report that despite the hysteria that seemed to permeate the astrological community for a time, Armageddon hasn’t arrived.
I can make some observations at this early juncture. I observe that many people born in the mid-sixties, who have the Uranus/Pluto conjunction, seem to be energized. They are making real inroads in long-standing problems.
This makes sense because Pluto in Capricorn trines the conjunction. In my mind’s eye I picture the force of the cardinal cross to be like a spinning engine while the trine gives the energy an outlet unleashing the creativity of many in that generation.
We can look to that generation to teach the rest of us make use of the energy. The conjunction took place in Virgo. Many of these people are excellent healers and their healing gifts can be put to good use.
Oftentimes when a powerful planetary pattern takes place, some of the energy lies latent until a later development triggers it. For example, Mars, which is part of the configuration, is retrograde. On May 20th, it will turn direct at 9 Libra. Mars is the planet of action. The direct station is liable to unleash Mars energy and act as a trigger. Look to events that occurred when Uranus/Pluto last squared exactly last fall at 9 degrees Aries/Capricorn. Look to what was going on in your life then, because this station will reactivate those issues.
From June 15-18th Mars will cross over 13 Libra, the spot it’s at now, reactivating the cardinal cross energy.
13 degrees of cardinal will remain ‘hot’ degrees for some time to come. Transits, lunations, eclipses, on or near that point are liable to act as triggers.
Developments coming up in the headlines now are tied into the cardinal cross energy. A few that come to mind are the continuing tensions in the Ukraine. the recent report about global warming, and a video showing a large Al Qaeda gathering in Yemen.
So what developments are going on in your life?
Keep me posted.
