A grand cross in the first two weeks of August 2010 is the climax of the ongoing T-square involving the gig hitting planets in astrology, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto. Because the planets involved are in Cardinal signs it has been labeled the Cardinal Cross, but it is also being called the Cardinal crisis, Cardinal Climax and even Cosmic Cross. During this time, these three planets are withing two degrees total orb, the tightest of this T-square’s life.
That alone makes this period important because the last time there was a similar pattern with these planets was in the early 1930′s, the Great Depression and the downward spiral toward world war and the deaths of 70 million people. What makes this time so critical is the involvement of other planets and lunations making this thing a super charged Grand Gross.
The Lunar Eclipse of June 2010 was conjunct Pluto, and the Sun and Mercury in the early degrees of Cancer is what turned this long term T-square into a long term Grand Cross, as eclipses have an effect which lasts about six months.
Jupiter is again applying in conjunction to Uranus on the fixed star Scheat. We saw an upsurge in natural disasters and air crashes last time Jupiter came toward Uranus back in May. Venus and Mars join Saturn early August, and on 6 and 7 August the Moon will be opposite Pluto again making a Grand Cross. Saturn square Pluto on 21 August sees the two big hitters in astrology face off.
“This is assumed by astrologers studying mundane astrology that it shall be a time with many great challenges and dramatic changes. This aspect resembles another grand cross that occurred during the 1930s … Therefore, mundane astrologers predict dramatic changes (economic, social, military, scientific) to occur again in the years ahead” [Mundane astrology – Wikipedia].
All the astrology forums and most astrology bloggers will be talking about this Grand Cross, it really is the most powerful thing we are likely to see for a long time. Personally I think it is a big deal and I am concerned about events unfolding especially in the global economy and military hot-spots. Events that have occurred in the months leading up to now, and any events that happen in the next few weeks should have deep and lasting effects for us all. Particularly important I believe will be the effect of Mars activating things (UT):
Friday 30 July 1:31 pm Mars opposite Uranus
Saturday 31 July 8:07 am Mars conjunct Saturn
Wednesday 04 August 4:20 am Mars opposite Jupiter
Wednesday 04 August 4:58 am Mars square Pluto.
