Cardinal Grand Cross
In astrology, a grand cross involves four or more planets each opposite another and at right angles to two others as seen from Earth. It is a configuration involving great tension. This summer has been dominated astrologically by several planets going in and out of this powerful formation. On this occasion it is a 'cardinal grand cross' meaning that the planets are in the cardinal signs of aries, libra, capricorn and cancer. These are signs of initiating or leading - in very different ways. On August 6-7, 2010 we have the last big grand cross of the summer when the Moon enter 3 degrees of Cancer to complete it, opposing Pluto at 3 degrees of Capricorn, with Uranus and Jupiter is in Aries (at 0 and 3 degrees, respectively); and then there is a trio of Mars, Saturn and Venus in Libra (at 5, 1 and 0 degrees, respectively).
