The month of April has been such a busy time astrologically. Now it’s crunch time with the “Cardinal Grand Cross” coming together April 23rd, The planets involved in the Cross are Uranus, Mars, Jupiter and Pluto. That’s a whole lot of energy going on! It may feel intense and scary. Some are expressing how they can’t take the intensity anymore, cuz it feels like somethings gotta give or blow. Take a deep breath, this is almost over, the majority of us will survive this.
The main complaint going around is physical pain and exhaustion. It’s been like we’re runned down and then hyper, and anxiety ridden all within minutes. If you’re a sensitive person by nature you can be feeling this energy pretty strongly. You may be experiencing a wide range of emotions and physical pain, that has no explanation. Please understand you’re not alone, many of us already went through some kind of adversity. This is almost over! Many of us also have already went thru the phase of the weird pains and high anxiety and are now over it and making things happen, so this isn’t going to hit everyone at the same time. I do feel however most of us have experienced the worst part of it thus far. In May we should really start to feel like our biggest challenges are behind us!
“Because all the aspects in a Grand Cross are considered difficult aspects, the Grand Cross is seen as a source of extreme tension whereby various aspects of the personality (represented by the planets) are working at cross purposes that serve to nullify each other. This pulls the native in many directions, ultimately leading to indecisiveness and an inability to produce concrete achievements. It is said to take extraordinary effort to overcome the conflicts in a Grand Cross.” wiki
A Cardinal Grand Cross causes challenges and blocks us from meeting our goals, simply because we’re overdoing it.
It feels like too much is being demanded of us, when we’re already trying to do too much… this leaves us feeling defeated and we get little accomplished.
The purpose of the Cross is to help us grow and evolve, and it helps assist us in the shifts happening, it’s here to help us change something in our lives. Changes are being made drastically to how we do life, as letting go of what no longer is working for us is very important now so that we can have our deeper desires. Most of us will feel like we’re being pushed in all different directions, and as if something big is coming and like we should be paying attention. That is true, it’s here now…something big is happening and we must try really hard to be aware or conscious of these changes. The biggest challenge is staying focused and calm, anxiety seems to be the number one side effect of the “Cross” pattern.
Breathing, centering, shielding from outside energies and grounding are highly advised. This is a time for major breakthroughs, which usually starts with a breakdown. Remember “One point past I quit, is always breakthrough.” It’s important to be honest with ourselves…if we lie or choose denial we won’t get the lesson. So what’s the point to experiencing all this drama? I know I don’t want to do this again, just to get it…and I doubt many of you do either!
This blog is a gentle reminder to be kind and compassionate to others and yourself. We can be brave and make this Grand Cross energy work for us, don’t be a victim to its energy! Some are choosing to take advantage of this energy instead and making it work for them, by creating a new beginning. It’s important to take one moment at a time if need be. Work on allowing this energy to just be what it is, and rise within you. Be an observer of your life, don’t push or force your way through this energy…little will get done that way. Operate from a place of love, don’t allow fear to take control. This Cross can be very beneficial if you use it to your advantage, understand it’s not a good time to work with people or to make deep connections, because we’re trying to do too much and we can bite off more than we can chew. You can feel anxious and overwhelmed if you are constantly trying to make others happy, including yourself. Do yourself a favor and take a break, let go of the control (cuz really you don’t have any…you just have been taught you do.) Surrendering is Control!
Remind yourself that we’re all going through this together, and be mature. Don’t take what others are doing the wrong way or to personal. Many of us have been super busy and under lots of stress, but we’ll move past this energy. Listen to your Soul and be in that space, don’t allow fear to take control, be brave! Be more in control by allowing yourself to be human, remember the beauty of who you are and those around you! Were in the middle of something big and amazing with the Cardinal Grand Cross! ~Ruby
