Rick DiClemente on The Grand Cardinal Cross – An In-Depth Look from Astrologer & Author of “The Exquisite Zodiac”


rick diclemente - the exquisite zodiacThis is a really thorough and insightful article on the energy of the Grand Cardinal Cross by Rick DiClemente, author of “The Exquisite Zodiac“, which is available in both paperback and ebook (Kindle).

Rick informed me that the ebook is available for free Friday and Saturday. You can contact him for details and questions at Rick DiClemente.

Rick’s article on the Grand Cardinal Cross is really thoughtful and thoroughly in-depth. I especially appreciate his “balanced” focus, to include the silver-lining and what is available within the energy experienced that isn’t all doom and gloom.

Resistance to the energy is only going to make things more intense and fuel an inevitable “breaking point”, but if you bend and embrace then, as Rick shares:

“What will happen to those who go with the energy? A brand new life focusing on the real you. Liberation is the key. More elbow room, more attention, more appreciation, easier communication, more liberty and opportunity; a feeling of being alive and going with life’s flow. A great new energizing! Excitement is the main word that I hear from those who are flying downstream!”

Cardinal Grand Cross Insights ~ Liberating Potentials from Facing Denied Darkness


Cardinal_Grand_Cross_April_2014Out of one of the most difficult astrological alignments emerges the potentials for profound and potent transformational shifts.

I always prefer the perspective of opportunities, presented from any given experience, rather than focus on the limitations.

With the upcoming Cardinal Grand Cross and Total Lunar Eclipse, which we have been experiencing over the months, and will continue to be prevalent, many speculate as to the effects on what this all means.

As always, go into your own heart space and find the answers to how you would like to work with the energy, but there is the potential for some majorly impactful and long-awaited changes that can manifest from your willingness to go to the heart and core of what really matters, and work with all aspects of yourself – especially the fears and shadows.

If you can see through the surface illusions of what the fears are actually, invaluably teaching you, and not allow ego to get in the way of discerning truth, then you may find profound rebirth and truer freedom, as you let go of embracing only what your preconceived belief-oriented “comfort zone” allows.

Balance is key and remember, there is no destination – just the journey.

Grand Cross April 2014: Astral Insights

As Cinzia Meneghello shares in the post:

“The ‘squareness’ of a Grand Cross can awaken our ability to conceive its opposite: harmonious flow.”

I also like Robert Wilkinson’s remarks, particularly in light of my own “physical bone fractures” I’ve experienced that symbolically felt potent to the breaking apart of old to new he explains:

“As Eternals, we’ve seen many things fall apart across many lifetimes. It’s a very human experience. And every loss creates the space for something new to come at exactly the right time…

“Just keep in mind that if it actually IS a time of many things fracturing, don’t be impatient for the new to present itself before the fracturing is done. We need a clean slate if we’re going to write a new symphony (and it’s hard to write one when the ground is shaking!)”
