The Grand Cardinal Cross of April 2014. Αn historical event!



The crucifixion has been the central theme these days within the christian communities. As we speak though a unique "Cosmic Cross" is ever more precisely formed in our skies - climaxing to the April 22nd perfect (partile) Cross configuration between the planets Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars (all of them being exactly at the 13th degree of the corresponding sign. And it is interesting to know that both the USA's natal Sun and the Russian President's Vladimir Putin Sun stand at the 13th degree of Cancer and Libra respectively)!

There are some astrologers out there claiming that this very rare phenomenon is "no big deal". Maybe they forget that a similar Cross configuration was formed in 1933, during the culmination of the "depression", the ascent in power of the Nazi party in Germany and the nomination of Hitler as Germany's chancellor! And also a similar quality cardinal T-square was formed back in 1344, just as the deadly Bubonic Plague was about to ravage almost half of Europe's population!

So, definitely this is far from being a "no big deal" phenomenon... We don't need to be afraid of it (it actually works for our own evolution - indeed with frenzied pace) but we should investigate it more thoroughly and evaluate it properly! Obviously there is no unanimity among the astrologers as to how this Cross will manifest its energies over our earthy dimensions. But this is not necessarily a bad thing, it doesn't tell us how "flawed" astrology is. The astrology configurations - especially the most complex ones like the current Grand Cross  - often manifest their energies in surprising ways ("archetypally" as Glenn Perry says - and not in a "linear", mathematically induced way). 

What we have to consider is that this is a unique and powerful astrological phenomenon, whose power is not stemming out just from the "additive accumulation" of the four high energy planets involved in it, from the ultra - elevated potential of the square and opposition aspects dominating in it but from the fine "attunement" of the four participant planets too - all of them being exactly at the13th degree of their respective signs.

All in all, no ultra catastrophic events might occur these days as the Grand Cardinal Cross is peaking. No doubt it will strongly affect us and our planet but probably not in the explicit, dramatic way we expect. "Something is about to crack" indeed! Yes, but what if this "crack" has positive implications? And ultimately the intensity of this phenomenon might not be cataclysmically expressed during its culmination (around April 22, 2014 that is). It might be dissipated over time and somehow subtly permeate the months and years we live in, coloring them with its own particular astrological hue - and ultimately creating a distinct mini "epoch" in our modern human history!
