WISH UPON A STAR — The 2014 Cardinal Grand Cross — April 23, 2014

Hello dear Friends and Readers, I’ve been getting a lot of calls from clients asking about the Cardinal Grand Cross that will be exact on April 23rd. I have written previously (look in the archives) about the 5 squares between Uranus and Pluto. This April will be the 4th one, with the additional pressure of Jupiter in Cancer and retrograde Mars in Libra exactly square the Uranus-Pluto square at 13 degrees. Hence the name — Cardinal Grand Cross.

There have been a lot of good articles about this event written by other astrologers. No one human has a corner on the truth, but by all of us contributing our thoughts about this event, we may be able to get a sense of where things are heading. Remember, if I can think of 10 possible interpretations, the Universe can produce 1000.

If you look at the past 3 squares, they coincide with extreme weather patterns, among other things. Square are symbols of tension, frustration, and the need to make adjustments. Earthquakes release tension. In the news lately, Chile has had swarms of little earthquakes in the northern part of their country. Some scientists are concerned that because this is a new pattern, it could be a precursor of a very large quake. If you take a map of the world and plot the quakes, you will see that the last few years show increasing geological activity. Here in the Northwest, we had a tragic mudslide due to extreme amounts of rain. Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn symbolize these types of events.

When you look at the square between Mars and Uranus, there is definite tension for air travel. Perhaps the tragedy of the missing plane is symbolized by this approaching square. I would not let anyone I care about travel by plane from approximately April 21 through 25th — after that the energy eases a bit. I remember many years ago, that the Challenger blew up in front of a whole generation of school kids. That tragedy coincided with a conjunction between Mars and Uranus. This one is a square. Here is one possibility — there is a volcano in Iceland that is on the verge of a large eruption, according to the scientists. Enough ash and planes would be grounded. That would make air travel even more of a hassle than it already is. My unsolicited advice is to be cautious and conservative and try to stay home on the 23rd.

Could it be a war? Well, our planet is full of wars already. Could it be a new war? Possibly. I read a book years ago based on the math of the King’s Chamber in the Great Pyramid. It predicted the extreme weather we are having and also said when the world grew weary of so much fighting, only then would we have peace.

Could it be more problems with our food supply? Very possibly. I’ve been trying to make that point for a couple years, that people should try to be more self sufficient, grow a garden, support their LOCAL farmer’s market, etc. The extreme weather is playing havoc with crops. Already in the US there has been serious crop damage in both the South and in California. Too much cold, too much water, not enough water, a hot summer predicted, etc. The other part of Jupiter in Cancer is there is a growing body of evidence that what we eat affects our health AND MENTAL HEALTH, in ways we’ve never thought of before. I am trying very hard to switch from sugary foods to healthier ones. Reports came out that sugar can cause inflammation. There was also a Swedish study that indicated dark chocolate was good for the heart. So I am eating a piece of dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate. So far, so good. Once I got used to the dark stuff, I stopped having cravings for the sugary version.

I also try very hard to follow Pope Francis’ request to not waste food. Jupiter in Cancer should be an abundance of food but these squares challenge the status quo. One out of every four children in the US is living below the poverty level. Children need adequate protein for brain development. Here’s an example of what needs to change — I read this morning that someone is dumping a million jars of perfectly good peanut butter. Part of a bankruptcy in New Mexico? Someone, maybe the State AG or the Governor, should threaten to arrest and fine those people unless they immediately donate the jars to food banks who need help so desperately.

Check out your chart and be aware if you have planets at 13 degrees. Most everyone will have at least one Cardinal planet. Allow a couple degrees for orb. Note which planet you have near 13 degrees and the aspects it makes to this Cardinal Grand Cross. In particular, note which houses in your chart are affected by the Cross. This will give you clues of what to be careful about.

This Cross hits the US chart hard. We already have financial and economic problems, political problems, geological problems, nuclear problems, weather problems, bad guy problems, etc. Just use your common sense and make some preparations in case there’s another emergency. Have gas in the car, propane for the BBQ, extra drinking water and food, flashlight batteries, keep your phone charged, get any medical PX filled so you don’t run out, etc. IF the power goes out for a few days, you’ll be glad you did what you could to be prepared. None of us know the exact nature of the events which could unfold. I’ve done my best to give some clues and keep people safe.

I hear you…Gee, Jenae, isn’t there anything positive about these transits? Well, I have seen these Grand Crosses in peoples’ NATAL charts and what happens is these peoples’ lives have periods of relative tranquility and then a transiting planet sets off the cross and all hell breaks loose. One particular teacher comes to mind — she was an elementary school teacher. And when her cross was activated by an outer planet transit, she was absolutely heroic about crusading for change within the system for the good of the students. I’ve watched her life for about 30 years. She took on the School District, she took on the local government, later she took on the police system, and one time it was more personal , in court due to an inheritance. She was just a little bitty woman but she had tremendous courage and energy and the will to right wrongs for the good of the kids…

I read one time in one of the Seth books that people who choose to live in areas where weather emergencies are common are seeking to experience brotherhood — the teamwork that comes from working together to save peoples’ lives. When the chips are down, humans can rise to greatness. Ordinary people become heroes. Bonds are forged that will never be forgotten. Brotherhood is a very special kind of love…Stay safe and let’s see what unfolds, Blessings, Jenae
