4/23/2014 Grand Cardinal Cross

We’re in for a Grand Cardinal Cross in the heavens this April 23rd! Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Cancer, Mars in Libra, and Pluto in Capricorn. This is very auspicious for ambitious ones and all of society and world altogether.

According to my Llewellyn Daily Planetary Guide © 2013

"The exact alignment of these four planets meeting at the crossroad of cardinal signs is considered by some to be a symbol of the transition from the end of the Age of Pisces to the beginning of the Age of Aquarius.”

"It’s also considered to be a call that it’s time for the world to change (Uranus), to expand its horizons (Jupiter), to mobilize its forces (Mars), and to transform its institutions (Pluto).

How spectacular is this… I am signing up for my real estate courses today and this astrology planner, which was published a year ago, had a prediction for April 23, 2014 to be a day to commence a new life path which will positively affect your life for LIFE— AND in this same planner, it encouraged that market values on everything would be going up April 25, 2014!

This day, these next few months, and these next several years will mark some serious change for Earth and Humanity on a global and individual level. According to my Lllewellyn Daily Planetary Guide, if the energies of this Grand Cardinal Cross are not used positively, we may expect wars and bloodshed in Mars, things being taken far beyond its usefulness negatively in Jupiter, all sorts of natural disasters in Uranus, and social, political, and economic collapses in Pluto. These are some serious energies we’re dealing with, so as an entire planet, it’s essential to get along.

And really, because Neptune is in its home Pisces for the next decade and some, expect some serious upheavals in relationships, society, and the internal realm within your psyche because this relationship is all about releasing the demons, cleaning the closets, getting out them feels, and really hitting home and at the heart of all issues. Predictions? Advice? Hold on tight, continue your life as regular, but begin the steps today to plotting out your future— an impressive window of opportunity has opened— jump through it quickly.

If you’ve wondered why all your magic, energy workings, law of attractions, and manifestations haven’t come to fruition since 2011, this could be why. The energy you’ve conducted could have easily been trumped by the buildup to this Grand Cardinal Cross. In the next two weeks, also expect communications to go down as Mercury eases into the slow, confusing Taurus sign at this time.

What’s most beneficial about this date is Jupiter’s ease into Sirius on April 25, 2014. This relationships spells out good luck and faring well through friction and the shadiness of the hidden Pluto and Mars. Expect great fortune to rest on your abilities to make use of available resources. An enlightening light will shine through wickedness if you remain steadfast to your morals, ethics, and principles soon. You may feel as if those around you aren’t quite law-abiding or moral, but fear not, your individual light will shine wisdom unto those who need you as an example to learn from in this organized chaos.

Today marks the beginning transition into the AGE OF AQUARIUS. Welcome to the New Age, my friends. Expect a rebirth of intuition, psychism, IQ, EIQ, and general power to fill you if you’ve been doing your spiritual homework the past several years or decades.

With the sun in Taurus and the moon in Capricorn, Justice takes on the role of calmly balancing the moodiness and emotional distance that can come on a holiday such as Easter. Today you and everyone around you will be feeling equal. If you find this flow being disrupted, walk away and bye your tongue, as in the lesson of the stubborn Taurus and prudent Capricorn. For the more personal, today is a great day for tackling homework, projects, and chores having been put off. With the Sun in Taurus, today is an excellent day with Justice to cleanse anger and bitterness through the reveling of Nature. Be outside today and reflect on how 2014 has progressed. What else is there to do? Go get ‘em!

Any kind words for the next few days ahead??

Give it your all.. walk as if you own the place.

I have been thinking about quitting my job at the supermarket recently. I asked my cards if I should quit (4 of wands) and what will happen if I do (strength). And the bottom ones are if I should stay at my job (ace of wands reversed) and what happens if I stay (7 of swords reversed)
I’d love some extra thoughts on this. At the moment it seems to me that I should quit, based on feelings, and also now the cards giving me some verification.
4 of wands to me is like a celebration and happy times, and I feel like strength will be me being able to be strong enough to make a choice and move onto better things.
Ace of wands reversed seems like stale and I’m not going anywhere or moving forward. And 7 of swords seems like there are sneaky people who are maybe putting burdens on me or around me? I don’t feel to good about that card!
Thoughts? cedargrass

Upon first looking, I thought, “I wouldn’t quit at this time… I’d wait.” I agree with your feelings, but when I compare the energies, I see the 4w urging you to make peace at this time because you must wait to find a new job first (AwR), and this is why you should be wise and not make rash decisions (7sR), and finally, you must endure work (Strength) because it looks like you’ll be cheating yourself (7s) out of career stability (4w).

Finally, I would say until you’re ready to transition into a new job, but have one lined up first before you quit! That’s the smart thing to do. 4w does ensure career happiness with that new job. But wait it out three days, and if you feel you truly MUST quit, do so. Your health and sanity is important.

A new Tarot deck to ring in the year. Thanks to a dear friend of mine, I now own this stunning realistic deck called the Witches Tarot. It’s full of witchcraft symbolism, paganism, art and symbolism from the Middle Ages, dragons, mystical scenes, mermaids, and beautiful men and women as the court cards. I love how the Pentacles suit incorporate POC. It comes with 78 cards and a 300-page book all about the new meanings, the card art, and there comes spells in the back with the cards.

Eostre is finally here and I have some great news for those looking to get ahead! 2014 is the year of The Chariot (forward moving tenacity with inner and outer self-mastery) and the Wood Horse. This year is about making considerable business plans, not being rash, taking and doing things gradually, standing up for yourself against all adversity, honing new skills this Spring, making minimum risks, flirting and socializing, having back up plans, and reaping the seeds you’ve sown by doing daily things to increase your wealth.

1. 6c - Today and this Spring: Commit to unwavering dedication, make promises that should be kept for the whole year, be inspired by love, and don’t dwell on the past as it will stifle and stagnate your progress. Move forward like the Wood Horse!

2. X. - Wisdom for keeping on track: Risks must be carefully considered with reason and intel. Make keen and well-conceptualized decisions. There is luck available for all new growth but sometimes only the few who are brave to dare and risk may prosper.

3. 4c - What can be accomplished: Self-improvement and self-mastery will lead one to success with all situations, wealth, health, and relationships. Do not take your moods out on anybody and have the attitude of gratitude for the whole year and fertility will come as needed.

4. 4s - The outcome for the Spring: Your progress and sccess is only achieved this year in what you are doing by committing frequent meditation and having a sanctuary to retreat and regroup when the Wood Horse’s terrain is a bit rough and difficult.

Main Advice: Giving up will be failure on your head. You have the potential to master all situations this year, but it is only with belief and practice in your ethics.

The emergence of The Star for today marks one of power added by the Full Moon in Libra (with the Sun in Pisces). Here we have dreams and goals which will be worked on through the intuition faculty of the deepest psyche within your soul. Now is a great day for extroversion and coming up with ideas through stepping outside of your inner hermetic dome of creativity by broadening your imagination with social themes, of course, for the goals and dreams as seen by in The Star. If your moon is in Libra, which mine is, this will be a magnetic day to bring good progress to all creative projects with others.

With this moon, you can expect to remove obstacles, push past old suffering, and deepen relationships with those around who share the same beliefs and missions as you. For those of a more private nature, I would expect to really make some breakthroughs with what you have been keeping under wraps until it’s finally ready to express.

Don’t waste that full moon !!! There are many ways to harness the power of the full moon and quite often many people catch it spontaneously, during the actual event itself. It is during these times a person isn’t quite prepared, yet is buzzing with energy that will only be available in totality…

A half day late, but not too late to absorb the energies of the Full Moon in Libra with the Sun in Pisces.

This moon tonight is all about socializing and making improvements individually by being around others who make us feel wanted and celebrated, rather unwanted and tolerated. This Piscean sun shines into the Full Moon in Libra to illuminate social parties with divinity, mysticism, intuition, emotional health, and spiritual evolution. It’s here where we access psychic compartments which are normally hidden and too deep in the ocean of our psyche to access.

Take full advantage of Venus and Neptune tonight through the Full Moon.

Pyromancy is the art of using fire or the means of fire to interpret fortunes and applicable omens for the querent’s struggles and questions. Pieces of paper, which can be index cards or colorful construction cards, are swiftly (and sometimes slowly but at a higher altitude) motioned across the flame to produce soot augury which can be interpreted. The last two cards were for a personal friend.

Care: To seal the soot so it cannot smear (and it will if you touch it), try using hair spray? I’ve never tried it, but it may work. Also, use a pencil or a cheap high lighter you don’t mind ruining to highlight to stencil what you think you see because you will forget later on if you look at it again. Also, take notes on the front and date the reading!

Omen: Spots where the paper has burned through or is very dark represents anger, pain, and emotional darkness.

Safety: Always keep a pan of water nearby to drop the paper into it if the paper burns and you cannot blow it out. Better safe than sorry!!! Be safe please! This is fire after all.

"If you're good at something, never do it for free." I have no idea where this quote is originally from but it definitely applies more than the arguments all those cheap people use who want to benefit from your skill without giving anything in return.
