Cardinal Crosses of 2010-12~Mayan Calendar

When astrologer and writer Jessica Murray covers the Cardinal Cross formations dialing up on our planetary menu, you go away full of insight and armed with valuable information to ‘get you through.’

Much has been written about the series of Cardinal Crosses which begin forming a few days after Summer Solstice 2010 and involving The Awakener Uranus squaring (‘blocking’ = 90 degr) he of the Invisible Helmet and ultimate riches – Pluto, as they form a 1st quarter aspect (‘crisis in action’ phase) to one another after their mid-60s Conjunction near the mid-degrees of Virgo.

But please let Ms. Murray clue you in to her take on this pattern, astrologers’ responses to it and how to aid the collective, and the pattern’s tie-in with the Mayan Calendar’s 2012 significance.

And if you’re an astrology student or a practicing astrologer, Ms. Murray’s words of encouragement speak to the heart of the matter during these transitional, sand-shifting times.

In fact, if you have a paradigm that wants shifting, you’re living in the right era for it as hyper-aware individual (Uranus) and collective unconscious (Pluto) blindside (square) one another off and on into 2012.

So don’t delay your read, for the Great Cosmic Clock is set to alarm us into new consciousness which many people had first hints about during 1987’s Harmonic Convergence in Aquarius bwo the work of Jose Arguelles.

What’s so Grand about a Grand Cross?

Well, ‘Grand Cross’ patterns in outgoing Cardinal signs (Ari/Lib;Can/Cap) refer to the agitation of four squares which form a square or ‘box’ shape in a chart, and which contain much tension and energy that spurs us into action, sometimes over-hastily so that failure seems to be a result of ‘bad timing.’

Staying power to follow through with projects and activities is not a strong suit of Cardinal Grand Crosses and the two oppositions created indicate challenges from others – external challenges – that require us to be consistent in our efforts and reliable toward others.

And while single-minded ambition may bring success through the directed, controlled use of the tremendous energy of the Grand Cross (es), head-on conflicts are possibilities particularly when the patterns are exact or near exactitute (1 to 2 degr), making these excitable days indeed.

Planning and forethought may be difficult but will increase our chances for preferred outcomes; tackling one objective at a time is good advice if I type so myself. Hopefully we won’t let our frustrations get the better of us and react prematurely.

A time of a Cardinal Grand Cross may be seen as a period of opportunity along with the energy needed to effect major changes – they are times when we may each, and collectively, reinvent our lives.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
