Grand Cross # 3

Read update #3 about the Grand Cross (by astrologer Annette Kok)

It all began on the 24th June 2012. That was the first moment that Uranus and Pluto made an exact aspect with one another. Of course we all felt the tension building up over the months and even the years before, about the exact moment that these two planetary giants would aspect one another.

Update #3 (by Annette Kok)

What are the effects of the Grand Cross in our personal lives?

For several years we have been feeling the effects of the Grand Cross in our personal lives. Feelings of confusion make way for feelings of relief, because the cosmos wants the best for us. The cherry on top of the cake happens on the 17th March 2015, when for the last time an exact square will occur between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. This does not have to be felt immediately. This also relates to your birth horoscope, because just like the approach to this final exact square, we all will be affected by the development of the square. The influence can continue for a number of years, even after this exact moment has passed.

Personal horoscope

The personal horoscope is divided into twelve parts, and these are called the houses in astrological terms. The houses are different for everyone depending on the place where the Ascendant (sign) is found. The Ascendant is defined by the exact time of birth. The zodiac sign and the degree where it rises is called the Ascendant.

The Grand Cross moves over our personal horoscope. We call this Progression. As the square moves in transit across our personal horoscope it has an important position, in our birth horoscope and in the Solar. The solar is our personal yearly horoscope based on our birth horoscope.

When we look at the Transits, these are the actual position of the stars, and put this over our birth horoscope, then we can see the Synastry horoscope. The astrologer can then see using this Synastry, which areas and which planets the Grand Cross influences. The special thing about the Grand Cross is that at least four areas in our personal life are dealt with. The planets activate the square, each time a planet makes an aspect on the square itself. In this way, the Grand Cross makes a movement similar to a wheel. In cards the Wheel of Fortune is often compared to this. This is a very active aspect, which gives great transformation. Taking into account that the Moon touches the corners of the square four times every month, we can in fact feel the influence of the power of the Grand Cross every week. In this way a personal theme has developed over the past years in which we want transformation. The other planets that make a Transit aspect with the square are not discussed, but the majority touches the corner of the square at least four times per year. Such an aspect works even stronger then.

Exact dates that Uranus makes a square with Pluto are:


By using these dates we can try and find out what impact the square has had so far on our personal lives. Because sometimes and so far it was Uranus and then Pluto that went retrograde, the Uranus/Pluto square can also work contemplatively. A Retrograde aspect works inwardly. An important fact is that during the last formation of the Grand Cross that both Uranus and Pluto moved directly, something that has not happened before. Mars will be directly besides Uranus during this upcoming Grand Cross on the 17th March 2015, which means that this will have a huge impact.

The dates when an exact square occurred were not always dates when a Grand Cross was formed, because then four planets or astrological points have to be involved, but: on the 29th June 2012 the Sun was directly opposite Pluto and around noon GMT a Grand Cross formed.

On the 20th September 2012 around 22.15 GMT the planet Mercury was involved and a Grand Cross was formed. On the 21st May 2013 during the day itself, the moon formed around 06.30 GMT a Grand Cross with Uranus and Pluto. This also occurred with the position of the Moon on the 1st November 2013 at 19.35 GMT.

Because of the input of the planets Jupiter and Mars on about 20th and 21st April 2014 a very powerful Grand Cross was formed. Jupiter was exactly involved, just like the retrograding Mars. The result took place over a number of days and it was the most exact and pure Grand Cross.

The Grand Cross on the 15thDecember 2014 around 17.00 GMT was formed by the position of the moon and the Node in Libra and the Ascendant in Cancer.

The forthcoming Grand Cross on 17th March 2015 at around 11.21 GMT will be formed with the Node in Libra and the Ascendant again in the position of Cancer.

This information is to emphasize, that on the dates above an exact 90 degrees aspect happened between Uranus and Pluto, and along the way a Grand Cross formed (not exact) by the intervention of a third or fourth planet in the Ascendant. Some astrologers take an orb into account of 3 to 7 degrees where said aspect is working. An orb is the distance in degrees until the aspect becomes exact. Personally I use an orb of about 15 degrees when such powerful planetary constellations occur, and we have to take into account the huge influence of the planets with one another and towards one another during such rare planetary occurrence. Practice shows that such an aspect accentuates the areas that need to be transformed.

On a personal level our lives will never be the same, and the same can be said for a global level too. The world in and around us is also changing but more about that next week!
