THE GRAND CARDINAL CROSS OF 2014
There is only one way...
You will, as you must and always should,
Stand in your Center.
Be True to who you are,
Be what you are here for,
Be the Heart of the Cross.
The Four Directions,
Point you to the Truth.
You must look within,
For there it will be found,
The Golden Immortal Chord,
The One True Path,
Your Way of Wisdom, Light and Love.
The Grand Cross
There is nothing unusual or rare about a Grand Cross. Yes, you have been here before, one way or another, in this life (and in many others). If we just examine the Grand Crosses formed by the planets from Mars out to Pluto in the last 100 years, (though some of these would be more and some less than exact), you would find about 10 Grand Crosses. Of those, five were Cardinal, two were Fixed and three were Mutable Grand Crosses.
Of those Cardinal Grand Crosses, the one most like "our own" of 2014, (it actually involves the same four planets!), is the Grand Cardinal Cross of 1933, which had Pluto in Cancer (opposite to where it is in 2014), Uranus in Aries (the same as now in 2014), Jupiter in Libra (where Mars is in 2014), and Mars in Capricorn (where Pluto is in 2014).
The key or critical feature of the Cardinal Crosses in 1933 and in 2014 is also the same. That key feature is the principal square aspect of the pattern. (A square is formed when planets are 90 degrees apart, which is one quarter of the circle of 360 degrees. In a Grand Cross, formed by four planets, two pairs oppose one another and each planet squares two other planets, as shown in the picture at the top of this post).
The main square in 1933 and 2014 is formed by two of the outermost planets, Uranus and Pluto. In 1933, Uranus was forming a waning square to Pluto, and in 2014 Uranus is forming the waxing square to Pluto, (and between these two squares they aligned to start a new cycle of their relationship to one another during the 1960's).
It would be quite right to view the cycle of Uranus and Pluto in this manner: The waning square of 1933 prepared the way for the planting of New Seeds of Spiritual Truth which were released when Uranus and Pluto formed a conjunction (like a New Moon) in the 1960's. You should approach and live the Waxing Square you are experiencing now as the "growth pains" of that seeding of New Inspiration that was released in the 1960's.
The Uranus/Pluto square is the critical and key element to understand within the Grand Cardinal Cross for 2014. If you have time or wish to review what I have written about this before, you will certainly want to read my series of postings about this important alignment, as it has been one of the main spiritual themes you have been experiencing since Pluto entered the Sign of Capricorn in 2008. Here is a link to those articles on Uranus/Pluto: The Uranus-Pluto Square.
The Grand Cardinal Cross of 2014 will form up exactly over the next several days. Today Jupiter will square Uranus as Jupiter Opposes Pluto. Then on April 21, the main element will be exact, Uranus will Square Pluto once again. Then Mars will serially align with the other three planets: on April 22 Mars will Square Jupiter and on April 23 Mars will oppose Uranus and also Square Pluto.
For today, let us look at these two alignments:
Jupiter Square Uranus & Jupiter Opposite Pluto.
Here is what I wrote about this two-fold alignment in May 2013:
For each of us has a part to play in this great drama unfolding within and around us...and as I mentioned above, the message and modulation of Jupiter this year can help you find your way.
For as you struggle within your own world to balance Uranus and Pluto, to weave together your Aspirations for Greater Self-Realization and Freedom (Uranus) while also Creating, Preserving and Honoring your own and everyone else's Sacred Space (Pluto) too, it is perhaps from Jupiter in Cancer that you can draw upon and find comfort in the Ageless Wisdom to help guide you in your Understanding and Actions.
For it is through Jupiter, The Lord of Truth and Wisdom, who can show you the way to the Source of the Principles and Teachings which have always and will forever Inspire, Guide and Keep you upon the Noble Middle Path. This Wisdom Teaching has been passed down in many forms through the ages, and it will be ever obtained by those who truly seek to serve, and as it is founded by and upon the Perennial Foundations formed from the very Energies and Forms of Creation itself, this Rock of Ages will always be there to guide you truly in these days when an Age will End and a New World Rise.
Jupiter is in Cancer and forming an alignment to both Uranus and Pluto, and this Gift of the Spirit can inform and guide you as to how to integrate these powerful energies transforming you and your world at this time.
To Uranus, who blazes with the Fires of Aries Idealism, where Impatient Individuality and Unbridled Enthusiasms can often betray the intention to do "what is right", Jupiter offers the Waters of Cancer which remind you that your Individuality is born through and arises from the Foundations and Roots of your journey which ultimately connects you to all of your fellow humans, and ultimately to all forms of Life, and your need to be True to Oneself must never result in the Harm to another...
For "we are all related", we are all ones of the One, and each Individual's Unique contribution to the Song of Life must be Honored and Free to Be...yet Each must also respect, support and so join in paying Homage and Fidelity to one and all...For as you must to thine own self be True, you must equally be True to all your Brothers and Sisters too.
To Pluto, who brings and bears the Will that Forms, Preserves and Transforms the Sacred Spaces of Spirit, Pluto can, when Unbounded in Capricorn, wield this Power in such a manner that what one intended to Preserve is in fact Lost, what was Transformed is actually Destroyed, because your Sacred Spaces become broken by the Will that stands for Absolute Power alone, where there is either Domination or Submission and no Freedom or Sacred Space remains.
To this Jupiter offers the Healing Grace from Cancer, that Pluto's Power without Bounds, which was formed from and fueled by Fear, may be washed away by those Loving, Caring and Nurturing Waters of Jupiter in Cancer wherein is found the Root of your Being. It is founded forever, within the heart of each spark of the Divine, in the Love of the One for all of the ones of the One, and it is in fact this All-Embracing Love which forms the Divine Sacred Space whose center is everywhere, and whose circumference is nowhere.
For each Space is Sacred, and to harm another is to Harm Oneself...For you abide within the Greater Space of the One, and what you do the least of these, you do also to the One, to all others and so to your own self too.
Yes, Karma is perfect, whatever you wish to create you must also Be and you will Become. Help one another to Grow the Sacred Spaces for each and every, for their Integrity is your own too. As always, keep yourself aligned to the Greater...Let Thy Will be Done.
As to all things, all challenges and hopes, the answer lies within you...it is in your Mind that is Free from Fear, your Heart that is Unconditional in Love and your Will that is Centered and Bounded within the Sacredness of Space.
It is from these, The Ancient Teachings, that your Hope and Path will be ever found and secured. Whenever you are in doubt or troubled by fear, remember the Great Invocation and repeat:
THE GREAT INVOCATION
From the point of light within the Mind of God
Let Light stream forth into our minds
Let LIGHT descend on Earth.
From the point of love within the Heart of God
Let Love stream forth into our hearts
May LOVE increase on Earth.
From the center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide our wills
The PURPOSE which the masters know and serve.
From the center which we call Humanity
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door
where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
Stand in your Center.
Listen to your Heart.
Be not afraid,
For you are here to Love
and be Loved.
That is the Way.
