Note on the Cardinal Cross

Dear Colleague:

I'm here with a few clarifications from this morning's edition. If you're on the Colleagues list, please use that link; it won't arrive by email as usual.

Planet Waves
In the title of my lead article (but nowhere else), I made reference to the Cardinal Cross. This is a phrase to get into your mental astrological database; it involves the cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, the first signs of the Sun's journey through any season. The 'cardinal points' are the first degrees of those signs, and they are one and the same with the Aries Point. We are now experiencing lots of activity in Libra and Capricorn, with plenty coming in Aries; hence, action on the Cardinal Cross. This concept goes along with the Fixed Cross (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) and the Mutable Cross (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces).

The three crosses of the heavens each have a set of delineations; we can learn a lot about the Cardinal Cross from a study of the Aries Point. One of the most useful sets of delineations of all three crosses can be found in Esoteric Astrology by Alice A. Bailey. While this can be challenging material to sort through, and Rob Hand would laugh, it is actually helpful stuff. If any of you would like to help put together an article on the three crosses, please drop me a note.

I also made reference to 'yesterday's conversation', which was an unusual discussion on the Planet Waves blog receiving more than 77 entries. I forgot to provide a link. The discussion was initiated by a post about the aspect Sun opposite Eris, which morphed into a discussion about gender roles and relationships. Some very unusual revelations came out of that discussion, and while it will take at least an hour to read, I recommend it if you're working on issues of gender roles in relationships; of integrating your opposite gender (men integrating Venus or women integrating Mars); of sorting out your sexual/affectual orientation.

It is always possible to say more about the New Moon, which is included in a discussion at the end of the article, and overnight or early morning Saturday to Sunday in the United States and Europe. I will add any additional notes to the chart's page.

Thanks for reading, safe journey through this potent New Moon, and I'll catch you Tuesday.

Yours & truly,
Eric Francis
