As my last post was a little dour and / or fatalistic regarding this heavy aspect in the sky, I wanted to post something for the rest of you, who have cultivated more awareness and an altruistic heart. When we start to refine our loving-kindness and compassion, opening our hearts appropriately and holding a noble intention within that vast open heart space… we are less compelled by our stars. Meaning, once we have the awareness to see and act beyond our lower self’s egoic needs, as we open to sharing, caring and giving to others responsibly and appropriately, then we have obviously moved beyond some of the more gross levels of karmic obscuration. And since I think the astrology chart represents our karmic imprint, if we start to move beyond the gross karmas, then our astrology chart is more of a less-than-vital-tool rather than something we must desperately keep track of. We can pick it up and peek at it if we wish, or we can continue loving and growing and giving to our community and benefiting sentient beings.
So what I am trying to say… is that this heavy aspect configuration of the Grand Cross in the Cardinal signs will either be felt internally by you (especially if you have a personal planet – Sun, Moon, Mercury or Mars – around 12 degrees of a Cardinal sign); or if you fit the category described above – if the fatalistic astrology books do not make sense to you because your spiritual practice has started to bear fruit, then keep on doing what you know in your vast heart to be right conduct. Continue sharing your bright soul with the world and bringing presence and skillful compassion wherever you go.
Know though, that there are many beings suffering a little bit more at this time due to this aspect. This aspect is not easy for most people. Especially if you are like me and you are just bouncing from karmic encounter to karmic encounter. Being a ping-pong ball can be fun… until you drift toward a major league slugger who is up to bat 🙂
