I wrote about this configuration in August when Venus was in Libra and I have touched on it previously since the slow movers Uranus and Pluto have been spending such a long time in Aries and Capricorn. They have formed squares with Jupiter in Aries and Saturn in Libra at different times. When the other faster planets pass through the cardinal signs they also briefly form the Grand Cardinal Cross. It has been happening every month of this year when the Moon goes through Libra.
Today we have Uranus in Aries, Moon and Jupiter in Cancer, Sun in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. At the New Moon on October 5 we will have almost the same configuration but with the Sun and Moon together in Libra.
In August I wrote: The Cardinal Grand Cross coming up will cover several things such as romance, marriage, breakups, financial changes, death and assorted surprises… Uranus will bring some action in the relationship department such as unexpected breakups, whirlwind affairs or elopements. Uranus figures strongly in the charts of many gay people. Gay people will be more open about their lifestyles and some will marry under this transit… Have cosmetic surgery or beauty treatments now. Go on a diet or start a fitness program. Because of Pluto your body may change radically in some way. You could lose or gain weight. Physical transformation and permanent change can be achieved now… The Cardinal Grand Cross will bring excitement and change in your career path, home life, relationships and personal expression. There could be extremes of prosperity or bankruptcy. In spite of the challenges of the cross, you are more focused and determined under this influence.
As you know, people born under Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are the most affected. Relax and don’t worry though. Not every cross will cause an event so your life won’t be topsy-turvy a couple of days every month. But changes are taking place under the surface. At some time your life will turn a corner. I think got this expression from Robert Wilkinson. I have found it’s a good way to explain the squares. Something happens to you or a loved one and your plans change. Example: I am a Cancer and two ladies very close to me but living in separate locations had car accidents this week. One of them was supposed to visit me but she had to postpone it. She has an Aries moon. I don’t know if either one of us is turning a corner but her plans changed. My plans changed. The event doesn’t appear to be of great consequence but you never know. The other lady was a Capricorn. Obviously her plans changed too.
Remember at the New Moon on October 5 that you can turn a corner and start something. Make wishes. Plan for the future. The Cardinal signs are the movers and shakers. And since it’s Libra, think in terms of bringing balance into your life.
