The Cardinal Cross Climax
What’s Katniss Eberdine and Jake Sulley Got to do With it?
Many are asking me questions about the Astrological planetary Cardinal Cross Climax. What is it and what does it mean? Cardinal Crosses occur when the outer planets move into Cardinal signs and have reached aspects that are traditionally representative of great movement and change on a global scale. These planetary aspects shake things up politically and economically, thereby affecting each of us personally.
Whether you are familiar with the term “Cardinal Climax” or not, you are likely feeling it, and know intuitively that change is occurring on many deep levels. Our beautiful mother, Gaia is going through a massive metamorphosis during our lifetime, reflecting unprecedented earth changes and events. For many, there is a sense of doom and loss of hope. Simultaneously, for many others, there is anticipated enthusiasm for regeneration and renewal. Researchers and present day spiritual leaders are persistently presenting us with ancient and modern day evidence that implies we are undergoing a “great human awakening”.
Before we delve more deeply into the meaning of the “Cardinal Cross” a couple of definitions may be helpful. Let’s begin with an understanding of Cardinal signs. Ancient Astrologers considered the Cardinal signs to be the movable signs associated with the changing of the seasons when the Sun made its journey into Aries (Spring Equinox), Cancer (Summer Solstice), Libra (Fall Equinox) and Capricorn (Winter Solstice). A planetary Cardinal Cross occurs in the heavens when the slower moving planets occupy the different Cardinal signs.
The Cardinal Cross aspect was activated on March 2, 2014 when Mars moved into Libra and began making a challenging aspect to Uranus in Aires, Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Cancer. This Cardinal conflict of cosmic energy is expected to be very intense for not just a few, but all of humanity.This intensity does not mean doom or gloom, but is an indicator of the imperative changes needing to occur on a collective level. That said, you may have surmised by now that this Cardinal celestial signature will have a more direct and personal affect on those with Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn planets in their horoscopes.Cardinal people can be dynamic leaders with a strong sense of purpose or destiny and are not afraid to try new things. There are many wonderful gifts that our Cardinal sisters and brothers offer us and this will be the time to take notice.
Taking notice is something you will not be able to avoid, as it is likely you will continue to witness battles of will during this period. We are also witnessing intense changes on an economic level globally; in fact, the last time there was a similar Cardinal Cross aspect was during the U.S.Great Depression of 1929-33. When any system collapses, it can provide an opportunity for those affected to bring about justice and a sense of order and balance out of chaos.
It is up to each of us during these unprecedented times to take responsibility to restore balance and harmony where we can. Many of you may have heard that sequels to the movie Avatar are in the making. Considered by critics to be a huge risk, Avatar instead broke numerous records as the highest grossing film ever produced. What is its appeal and why is it so wildly popular? Movies tend to reflect our current state of mass consciousness and the title “Avatar” itself is an obvious collective message. An avatar, according to Eastern spiritual teachings, is a teacher who comes to earth to restore dharma, to balance good versus evil. Similarly, the protagonists, Jake Sulley, and Katniss Everdeen of the Hunger Games, listened to their hearts and chose the pursuit of justice. Films like these are good examples of our current culture’s integration of the Cardinal Cross energy.
Justice can only be pursued by following our hearts and not our heads, and through honoring the ancient wisdom that all life forms sustain each other in one harmonious, unified energy field. This is an especially important time to focus on solutions, remain optimistic and continue to cultivate love and compassion for all sentient beings.
Change is an inside job, therefore…
“Be the change that you want to see in the world.”
