We are coming up to what might be the most powerful astrological alignment of our lifetime: the Cardinal Climax.
It is similar to what happened in the 1930’s, only the aspects today are even closer. It’s happening in Cardinal signs, which means there will be new beginnings. Each Cardinal sign: Cancer, Capricorn, Aries and Libra heralds a new season, so they always initiate a change.
There are four slow moving planets involved in this configuration:
Pluto, the slowest planet, is about transformation, birth, death and ultimate renewal. Uranus which is about awakening and revolution and sudden change, Jupiter which is about expansion, new beginnings and hope, and Saturn which doggedly holds onto the old and resists the new at all costs. We are seeing the rigidity of Saturn in many areas, particularly political parties that want to keep things as they are just for the hell of it and are resisting change. This is happening with Congress right now as the Republicans are resisting Obama’s health reforms.
The year ahead, until March 2011 is peppered with huge astrological aspects from Saturn opposing Uranus, Jupiter opposing Saturn, Jupiter square to Pluto…the list goes on. What does it all mean? Mother Earth needs to cleanse herself and she is shifting. We’ve had three earthquakes in the last few months alone: Haiti, Chile, Turkey. There will be more changes ahead. You will need to trust your intuition. If you intuitively feel as though you should move from where you are living, trust your intuition. Even if people around you think you have gone crazy, it’s not worth taking a chance.
Early August 2010 is the peak of this aspect structure, but we are already feeling it and the energies of this are with us until at least the end of 2011.
There are also two lunar eclipses taking place around this cardinal climax:
June 26th there is a lunar eclipse at 4 degrees Capricorn for the Moon and 4 degrees Cancer for the Sun. This creates a grand cross with the T square of Pluto, Uranus and Saturn and it’s likely we will see some really crazy happenings around that time.
Another date to watch out for is December 21st when there is another lunar eclipse with the Moon at 29 degrees Gemini and the Sun at 29 degrees Sagittarius. Again, almost in cardinal signs, so it will have a serious effect.
Finally there is a full moon in Aries at 0 degrees with the Sun at 0 degrees Libra on September 23rd. I anticipate that this will be an intense time as well.
Overall, I think that these aspects will result in a complete paradigm shift on our planet. We are not going to be able to push our planet for more and more resources, more and more growth at the expense of the life of the earth. We will see that we are not about continual growth and having lots and lots of stuff. We are moving towards what I hope will be a kinder, more compassionate and heartfelt feeling towards one another and the ability to live on much less.
I am noticing that children born today are more spiritually open than ever before.
It’s time for us to start living in the way that we think the world ought to be. Don’t wait for the changes to happen, you live that change. Follow your intuition, allow yourself to be guided. We don’t need the outside authority any more, it’s up to us. Despite these huge changes, this is a very exciting time to be alive!
