I read with interest a couple of the astrology writers in the newspapers and magazines over the last few days, and I note that not everyone is gloom and doom about the current astro energies. This might come as a bit of a surprise, given all the talk of radical upheavals during Grand Crosses and Eclipses. But it’s true, it doesn’t have to be all upsets and tragedies, the next couple of weeks are perfect opportunities for growth, and the best way to deal with the challenges of the time are to allow the growth, no matter what. Surrender. Trust.
Sure, there is plenty of pushing and pulling, and sure we are being asked to be real, to be in truth no matter how uncomfortable it feels, and sure the demands of the time are that we let go with not only no attachment to an outcome, but with no knowing of what it is all about.
The Grand Cross peaks between the 19th and 22nd April (AEST), and it is right in the middle of two eclipses (a lunar eclipse today followed by a solar eclipse on the 29th). The Grand Cross sees Uranus (radical change) opposite Mars (physical energy) and square to Pluto (transformation) and Jupiter (growth, truth).
It might feel like a struggle, with all those internal forces stretching us in different directions. And no doubt there can be pain and discomfort, but there is more pain and discomfort from inaction. The tension of the moment is there to highlight what needs to change, and it is only when we hold on too tightly that the stirrings become frustrations and anger. Rather, go with the flow, work with the forces, trust that it is taking you where you need to be taken … even when you don’t want to let go. For me personally, I can’t even tell why, I just know that I’m being asked to evolve.
This is a time to surrender to the unknown.
