CHANGE world wide and personal is happening to all of us.
Last night I was watching a TV show called The Voice. A male contestant who said that he was 56 years old was telling them that he now felt the need to change his lifestyle. Kylie Minoge, who was one of the judges told him that she had a great career overseas and last year she had an 'epifini' about time to change. so she came back to Australia and was now working on this show.
My sister recently suffered a heart attack (from stress). She had worked on Craft stalls for many years and was always busty creating new articles. Last year she started stressing as many of the venues for stall holders were being closed down. People were not buying hand crafted articles anymore. She has four friends that have worked on stalls and created their own crafts who all became ill as well and could not continue to work. So they were all being forced to change their lifestyle. These ladies and my sister now are looking towards finding new interests (most of them in their 70's). My sister is now starting to go to a meditation group and a Cardio class for exersise.
Think about your own life, and the lives of your family and friends. How many of you are going through changes that you never thought could happen?.
Now in 2014 a Grand Cross in Astrology is a joining up of four 'square' aspects. A square is a 90 degree aspect (joining) between two signs. Because signs that are 90 degrees apart have the same 'action' but do it in a different manner there is always conflict and a need for resolution. The Astrological signs that are are classed as Action signs are (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) Those signs need action in various ways. Mutable signs are (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) These signs need to communicate in their own way. The Fixed signs are (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) These signs have 'fixed' ideas as to how things should be.
The Grand Cross (joining four of these square aspects to form a square) is touching on the four Action sign houses in the chart (creating a need for action for all) and the planets travelling through those signs are affecting all humanity. The Planet Uranus, that is connected to the Aquarian Age we are now entering is in Aries/the sign of action. The Planet Jupiter, that is connected with travel, knowledge and optimism is in Cancer, the sign of home and families (particularly Mother) The sign of Mars, (energy, and fighting) is now in the peaceful sign of Libra (peace and partnership). The sign of Pluto (power, renewal, underground) is now in the sign of Capricorn (business, father, responsibility)
Uranus in Aries relates to pioneering new Aquarian Age attitudes. Jupiter in Cancer indicates a need to move away from old close ideas in nurturing and have more independent ideas. Mars in Libra, is a need to stand up and fight for partnership rights. Pluto in Capricorn is about going underground (Pluto) to bring out underground happenings in business and controlled groups.
Whenever there is a square aspect in a chart there is a need to work on the energies of the signs and to let go of old habits in order to grow spiritually. It is very rarely that these square aspects join up in a chart and create a square. What then happens is that the stress that is being worked on in one square aspect is connected to the next and the next, so that each one causes more involved stress. It can have a whirl wind affect that pushes you to change and move on. This is an extremely strong aspect and its affects can be seen not only in our own lives but in the dramas that we know are happening all over the world.
We have also recently had two eclipses that have worked with this Grand Cross in order to move humanity forward.
