The grand cross

One way we could look at the grand cross would be to view it literally as a crossroads. We ourselves are travelers who arrive at a point where four roads meet and where four possible directions open up before us.  Pluto, Uranus, Saturn or the Sun, which route would you take today? Beware, the term grand cross is an oxymoron – there is nothing grand about it. The potential the current cardinal  planets have to undertake great things falls by the wayside. The grand cross often leads to deadlock and inner tension – but perhaps when viewed from a more all inclusive perspective – this might indeed be the cosmic intention. To live with the creative tension of seemingly unlimited but contradictory potential, freed from the immediate karma of choice.

Crossroads: an intersection of roads. This meaning is used metaphorically as a place where other things – both physical and abstract – meet.

A point of convergence then, a place of collision, of fertile ground perhaps. A rooting place where everything is possible so long as we can live within the tension and avoid taking hasty action? At such times, particularly since Saturn and Pluto are in the picture, there is an issue concerning decision making. The karmic burden inherent in choice hangs above our head. Some decisions once taken are irreversible and only time (Saturn) will tell if our choices were right or not. If we can help it, we do not want to end up in the desert with no water.

“But there’s no need for turning back
`cause all roads lead to where I stand.
And I believe I’ll walk them all
No matter what I may have planned.”

Crossroads… Don McClean

In the build up to Friday’s eclipse – we are offered an opportunity to (spiritually) explore new directions – freed from the burden of choice.
