Up Close and Personal with the Cardinal Grand Cross: Member Edition of Planet Waves Will be on its Way Soon

New edition of Planet Waves will soon be on its way.

New edition of Planet Waves will soon be on its way.

Today’s edition takes one last look at the grand cross, in the Friday members’ article series. I offer extended readings for all 12 signs and rising signs that parse the huge amount of data into a clear and useful interpretation. The lead article looks closely at our moment, which is significant on a scale of decades or much longer. In a second article, I look at the Sun’s ingress into Taurus, conjunct what is perhaps the least-ever-used minor planet, 1992 QB1. We should be mailing this out by about 10:15 am — we are almost done.

You can access today’s full issue through a single-issue purchase. Or, sign up for a free one-month trial membership, and get our twice-weekly premium astrology service sent directly to your inbox for the Sun’s entire journey through Taurus.

Unsubdued — Solar Taurus Again

The Sun enters tropical Taurus again just before Midnight EDT Saturday to affirm your life. It is no small thing. This time of year has always provoked those in more northern latitudes to declare it “finally” spring. First harvests are being made south of the equator as well. Nevertheless, affirmation of your life is now more vital than ever.

Astrology by Len Wallick

It’s vital for you to participate as vividly living now because the Sun’s ingress to Taurus has been met with human activity negating life in recent years.

It started on the Sun’s first day in Taurus 2010, also Chiron’s first day on the job in Pisces. We awoke on April 20, 2010, to find out about the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, and arose every day thereafter unsure as to whether we were witnessing the beginning of a mass extinction event.

The beginning of solar Taurus the following year found us wondering the same sort of thing for a different reason. More than three years after an earthquake and tidal wave on March 11, 2011, set off an unprecedented nuclear disaster in Japan, we still don’t know the ultimate outcome for life on Earth.

Then, whatever encouragement your life could take from the “Arab Spring” of 2012 was dampened by how News Corp UK (formerly News International) was caught basically stealing souls, and then was dampened again by two of most frightful words ever spoken: Mitt Romney.

This is It: The Cardinal Grand Cross of 2014

Note: Due to the Planet Waves server being down nearly all night, we’re just now getting today’s Daily Astrology posted; Len Wallick’s column will follow at 2 pm EDT. — Amanda

We’re entering the last few days of the Sun in Aries, before it enters Taurus on Saturday, ushering us into the heart of spring. Then the ‘big astrology’ of the the year — some of the most powerful since 1999 — culminates on Wednesday, April 23.

Full chart for the Sun's ingress into Taurus Saturday (the yellow circle with a dot in it), with the cardinal grand cross nearly exactly in place. View larger chart here; view glyph key here.

We’ve been feeling it building for months, and chances are you’re already observing its effects both within yourself and in your relationships.

Wednesday’s cardinal grand cross (Uranus, Jupiter, Mars and Pluto, all at right angles to each other from the signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) is basically a LOT of internal push and external pull working on you all at once.

That can feel like a lot of pressure to “do something already!” But Mars is a bit of a wild card in the set-up: it’s pushing for action yet is retrograde (more inward/backward-looking), and can feel like it has too many options or no clear direction in Libra.

Keep a handle on your intentions and a close eye on your frustrations. Be aware of how you’re feeling compelled to express your energy at all times. Simply knowing that you’re feeling frustrated is half the battle; if you’re present with that, you can feel out whether you’re actually frustrated with someone else, or with something within yourself.

All astrological factors are cautioning against rushing into decisions, and encouraging you to evaluate your options. Mars retrograde in Libra lends itself to making wrong decisions and doing the opposite of what might actually be best for you, so you really, truly need to figure out what is correct.

Astrology Today: Oracle for Thursday, April 17, 2014

Today’s Oracle takes us to the Capricorn monthly for Dec. 1, 2002

Astrology Blog: The Oracle, Weekly Horoscopes, Monthly Horoscopes.

Our current year has differed from any in your life in that Chiron has begun its four-year journey across your birth sign. This represents what you might call a contact point with the primary issues of existence, which tend to be the matters that are the most often ignored in our culture. So it wouldn’t surprise me if anyone lacked the least clue of what I refer to when I say that you’re in an extended phase of your life when you’re claiming your right to exist. I suggest you consider any struggles of the past year, and any triumphs, and the great diversity of experiences in-between, within the context of this idea. Remember that much of what we call growth simply involves growing beyond the limits our parents set upon themselves, and that have been imposed on them by antiquity. And to be free of what’s not ours does in fact begin with a choice.

Note, The Oracle is a random selection from the Eric Francis horoscope archives. Each day we publish one entry from among the 10,000 in our database. It’s a little slice of horoscope history — but chosen by our Oracle program, which always speaks to the present moment. New horoscopes are published each Friday plus twice a month in Planet Waves subscriber edition and Planet Waves Light.

Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope 995 — Sun Enters Taurus, Mars in the Grand Cross and a Solar Eclipse on the Way

Today I will be writing Planet Waves Weekly #995, my horoscope readings that will be published Friday morning. They will cover the Sun’s ingress into Taurus, and they’re also the last horoscope before the grand cross on April 23 — the main event that I cover in the 2014 Spring Report and The Mars Effect annual readings.

Focus of chart for Planet Waves Weekly #995. This grouping of planets covers early Pisces to early Taurus. This chart is for Saturday, April 19.

My weekly readings, which cover your sign and your rising sign, are part of a subscription product that’s sent to our members every Friday morning. They are considered a Sun-sign horoscope, but in reality, they’re a lot more. I take in many more factors than your sign, and give myself more space to work than just about any other weekly horoscope.

I use the space to deliver a clear, useful message, something dependable that you can actually take with you; something that will make a difference that day, and for the coming week or two. The key to a good horoscope is boiling down the data into something that is clear and helpful, not loaded with astrological language (I explain and teach that other places).

These readings are as real as astrology gets. They’re different than a natal chart reading, but there are many ways to do astrology well. In the end, the astrology you get is as good as the astrologer you get — and their ability to both interpret and convey an idea.

In this week’s edition, I am factoring in the following major events:

We just experienced an unusually potent lunar eclipse in Libra, and the world is still vibrating from that. This influenced relationships and what you might think of as environmental circumstances — and may have pushed you to make up your mind about something after a long delay. Eclipses have lasting impact, and need to be considered long after they happen.

Mercury opposite Mars: A Caution and an Opportunity

Mercury opposes Mars today — a potentially volatile, challenging aspect feeding us directly into the cardinal grand cross (which is exact in one week, but we’re ‘in it’ now). At its most basic, Mercury opposite Mars says: talk it out, don’t argue it out.

Right in the thick of things: the Aries and Libra clusters as Mercury (green glyph with horns) in Aries opposes retrograde Mars (red arrow pointing up) in Libra. View glyph key here; read Eric's overview of the whole configuration from Monday here.

Right in the thick of things: the Aries and Libra clusters as Mercury (green glyph with horns) in Aries opposes retrograde Mars (red arrow pointing up) in Libra. View glyph key here; read Eric’s overview of the whole configuration from Monday here.

Exact at 7:15 am EDT, this is a continuation of Mercury on the cardinal grand cross (it aspected Uranus, Pluto and Jupiter Monday). Mercury is in Aries, across the zodiac from retrograde Mars in Libra.

The ‘horns’ on Mercury’s glyph signify fleetness of mind, yet in Aries, they also echo the ram’s horns. We can translate that into being headstrong, especially regarding ideas about oneself.

Mars in Libra can feel spread thin or diffused; imagine that person you know who is always trying to do everything but never seems to make efficient progress with any one thing. Retrograde in Libra, Mars is even more confounded. Mars wants more than simply to discover and understand the roots of our relationship tendencies; it wants to do something about what we find.

At its worst, Mercury opposite Mars is the perfect setup for frustrated desires and goals to get projected onto relationships with others; for subconscious hostility to come shooting out in a blaze of self-righteous combativeness; for actual physical accidents when behaving rashly or impulsively. It’s all accusation and reaction, but no reflective ‘I statements’.
