This Week's Cardinal Cross: Go For It!

There’s some level of fear generated about the potential disasters that might be associated with the Cardinal Cross coming into exact alignment on April 23, although we’ve all been feeling it for at least a month now.

Putin's recent annexing of Crimea may have been an early indication of this energy's manifestation in the world and we’ll be able to track accidents and bursts of violence and say, yes, that fits the explosive nature of Pluto, Uranus, Mars and Jupiter in strong aspect to each other.

Yet, most of these possibilities we have no control over. Our personal power is to hold positive thought for the ongoing unfolding and evolution of the world while choosing to live consciously and work co-creatively with this energy on a personal level.

As we release all fear about this cross, it's important to remember this is not a brand-new zinger dished out by the universal sky lords. The planets have been lining up in cardinal signs for years. Most particularly we are now past the middle point of seven exact squares of Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries.

We've had time to go deep within ourselves and wrestle with our shadows and look at how we might have built a life that no longer resonates with our evolving Self. We have been made aware of the areas of life where we feel like we’re in a box of responsibilities and dead structures. We’ve been challenged to become more free, to embody Spirit in an authentic way.

Each one of us has a current story line about how we need to "do something or change " -- but it’s hard. Our soul wants to fly free and do what we know we're here to do, but on the other hand there are preexisting commitments, bills and mortgages, security fears, limited options -- or too many options.

Pluto and Uranus and their dance of transformation and awakening form the most intense aspect of the cross. This is the basis of the cross's potency. Now, Mars and Jupiter are moving into town. Mars in Libra is opposite Uranus. That might cause us to worry, because initially we might think of accidents or rash unexpected events.

But what if Mars is exactly the firepower we need to get off our stuck spot and take action? What if what we need is a call to action, the will to go for it? That’s how Mars can be our ally. And Mercury has been dancing with Uranus in the past weeks. Is the call to action also relating to how we think about things? Is it time to literally "wake up" -- using our minds in fresh and innovative ways?

Jupiter in Cancer completes the cross and expands our hearts and our healing capacities. Jupiter reminds us that love and family (birth family or the beloveds we have bonded with in deep and powerful ways) matter deeply and need to be integrated into our lives more than ever before.

Jupiter asks us how we’ve been underestimating ourselves, and challenges us to go for more, to look for the opportunities and be willing to take them, neither under inflated nor overinflated, simply maintaining an attitude of faith and optimism that it will indeed all work out.

If we integrate the four points of this cross internally with their highest intentions, we’re on track and could see amazing breakthroughs in our lives in the upcoming months.

By being ruthlessly honest with ourselves and transforming our stuck spots (Pluto), breaking through old patterns to change radically and be authentically in alignment with our path (Uranus), we may need to act courageously in our own Self-Interest (Mars), while finding an expansive balancing of love, inner healing and self-care (Jupiter).

Do not be frightened by the planets. They are within us. They are not doing anything to us.

There is a major burst of love and enlightenment available now for anyone who is willing to make a leap of faith about whatever they’ve been stuck about for years. Go for it!

Love,

Kay
