“Why do we crucify ourselves ... every day … Nothing I do is good enough for you”
-- Tori Amos
Just wanted to drop a few lines on the ongoing craziness that is the cardinal grand square or cross. As I write this the Moon in Aries is getting ready to join the fray and stir up trouble. You may notice that suddenly everyone has an incredibly short temper and a very demanding energy (read: emotional tantrums).
How can we best work with this very stressful and potentially volatile energy? How do we find peace between so many opposing forces stretching us to our very limits?
One suggestion is to find a way to give a healthy and conscious expression to each of the planets involved in this potent cross. Here are some examples to consider.
Mars in Libra
Working on the balance in our relationships; asserting our needs without resorting to passive-aggressive measures.
Jupiter in Cancer
Nurturing ourselves like good mothers; trusting the wisdom of our gut; honoring the divine feminine; finding home within.
Uranus in Aries
Allowing the breakthrough energies to challenge us to become better warriors; individuation from co-dependent patterns.
Pluto in Capricorn
Honoring the power of time and integrity in revamping our power structures both within and without.
