View Full Version : grand cross
can any one shed some light on a grand cross that
positions in scorp...leo...taurus and aquarius
challenges you have come across with people with this combo in their charts
Jupiter in Scorpio oppose Mars in Taurus
Saturn (current rx) in Leo oppose Chiron in Aquarius
Mars is the masculane drive, Taurus is the fixed sign of determination
Chiron is the wounded healer, Aquarius is the symbol of the revolution and evolution of new ideas.
Jupier rules fortune, luck, and the financial power of our lives, Scorpio is about the dark emotional depths.
Saturn is the teacher and coach, restricting our movments and forcing us to take evasive manuevers, Leo is about leadership and force de arms over the enemy.
The Grand cross lets us observe action/reaction from a detached but very observant point of view. combined with a just-done=with venus retrograde and an upcoming mercury retrograde (early march) everything is in over drive, and guess what, the road is just slick enough to prevent moving ahead as intended.
long term goals take precidence, stay focused, and stay in the here and now, lots of options out there.
this was very help full
I look at things in two ways: affliction/reception and energy generation/release.
In this case, the hard aspects (oppositions/squares) are afflictions unless reception exists. Therefore Mars and Saturn are fairly afflicted (both are detriment and square with malifics), while Jupiter is somewhat less afflicted. In this case, we can see the Mars opposition actually providing guidance to Jupiter as it passes through the difficult terrain of Scorpio. This is because Jupiter exists in Mars' house and therefore is receptive to Mars. Saturn and Mars are going to be pretty heavily afflicted and you may find that you have trouble relaxing, being patient, etc. You may have a reputation as being pretty serious and have trouble letting go of things.
In the case of energy generation, the reception allows Jupiter to be a partial release, but the rest of the grand cross is going to be a strong set of hardships that generate energy. Where this energy will be released (beyond Jupiter) will be dependant on the soft aspects (trines/sextiles) with the planets in the cross.
Also Chiron is a minor, so we can also read this as a T-Square, which further afflicts Saturn and places more emphasis on the Saturn/Leo combination.
