I promised to send you a note about the cardinal cross and here it is…
A cross is a very challenging astrological occurrence that occurs when planets form a T – two planets in opposition with each other and another at a ninety degree angle. A cross of slow-moving planets is quite rare. The cross that becomes exact on April 20th 2014 involves Pluto (transformation/death), Uranus (revolt) and Mars (conflict/aggression). Even more challenging is the fact that Jupiter (good fortune) will move in to make this a square of four conflicting energies AND the Moon (emotions, impulses, and the general public) joins the club.
Remember that the cardinal cross is not new. It has been in place for some time and will remain active until 2015… However, tomorrow (Sunday April 20th ) it becomes exact which means that its dynamics are particularly intense. This is actually the fifth of seven exact alignments and they do increase in intensity.
So, what does this pesky cross mean?
As this is a cross between planets in Cardinal signs, we call this a cardinal cross which is particularly tough in my opinion because the cardinal signs involve action. BUT, please don’t panic! First of all, we always consider what we call major and minor progressions when deciphering what is occurring in a person’s chart or life. The cardinal cross is a transiting cardinal cross. The deep underlying conditions within you and your life are described by the major progressions and not the transiting planets. Transiting planets trigger underlying energies like a match lights the wick of a candle. Avoid making generalizations about the cardinal cross and what it might mean in your life. The only way to understand your personal circumstances and probable outlook is to interpret major progressions that may be triggered by transits (but not necessarily the cardinal cross). Remember as well that the different domains of your life described by the zodiacal houses carry differing amounts of energy. In other words, any transit carries a different amount of potential impact in your life depending on the house that it is transiting.
The cardinal cross is very interesting from the perspective of mundane astrology in which we focus upon world events. It is very likely that as it becomes exact (on the 20th of April this year), world events will be triggered. You can think of it as pent up energy becoming released as the air is released from a burst balloon. Again, where the impacts occur depends on the nations’ charts. Countries do have charts just as individuals do. These charts represent the mass consciousness of the nation in question. More often than not, the events of a nation are indicated by the leader’s chart.
You don’t have to be a metaphysician to know that we have problems on the horizon in the near and long term: oil and natural resource exhaustion, overpopulation, corruption (politics and finance), medical challenges etc. The cardinal cross is very likely to crystalize some of these challenges, but you really have to study the nations’ charts. The remainder of this decade presents challenges, but not as significant as the challenges that I foresee for the 2020s. This is why I am writing a book with Stephen Lewis about the 2020s outlook. In my opinion, the cardinal cross will certainly trigger some very significant global events on or around April 20th.
In the case of the US, I feel strongly that a dramatic political and economic challenge is brewing. This does not necessarily transpire on April 20th, but I am certain this it is on the broader horizon. When I analyzed the 2014 eclipse series in the US chart, I thought “ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch and ouch again”. If you are interested in me analyzing the dynamics of other nations or looking at correlations of the upcoming energies between nations, just let me know – I would love to hear from you.
Whatever is happening in your world, remember that good choices and positive thinking always help to some degree. Here are some things that you can do as we experience this universal grand cross:
- Be calm, take it easy and maintain your balance – avoid confrontational or risky situations
- Let go of thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and actions that do not serve you well
- Project loving thoughts of kindness to the world around you and to yourself
If you are not convinced that there is a significant economic and political problem on the horizon, take a look at these links:

I love this true synchronicity story about Deschamps and Monsieur de Fontigibu…
Deschamps had his first plum pudding when he was a boy. Ten years later, he saw some in a restaurant and asked for it. He was told that he would have to share it with a Monsieur de Fontigibu because there was only one left, and so he ate his half. Years later he was at an event at which plum pudding was served. He laughed and commented that a Monsieur de Fontigibu should be there. Just a moment later, a Monsieur de Fontigibu was announced.
The term coincidence relates to the verb ‘to coincide’ yet we use it with the meaning of chance. But you see, everything is coinciding. When we are aware of what is coinciding we use the term ‘synchronicity’. There is no chance… Everything is coordinated and correlated even if the muggles don’t see it. But if you are on my mailing list, you are no muggle!
Many years ago, I had a very vivid dream of myself at a large family dinner table in Spain. I was a student preparing to leave my family to go and study medicine in Madrid. It was some time in the sixteenth century. I saw very clearly one of my relatives at the dinner table. The following week, I saw this person at a busy train station in London. He just walked over to me and shook my hand. We fell in love straight away and were together for 8 years.
Our paths coincided again. I can’t tell you how much I struggled over the end of our relationship in this lifetime. But l know that we coincided in this lifetime as a follow up from a time long ago. Relationship endings are rough, but this always helps:
I love you. I always loved you. I will always love you. We were together before. We were together again. Our paths went in different directions, and now we are apart. But it doesn’t matter because everything is coordinated by our miraculous Universe. We will coincide again when the time is just right.
Recently I coincided with a wonderful man. He arrived just on the day that my progressed astrology predicted. It is like clockwork. When you are reunited with someone wonderful and the coincidence is harmonious, perhaps it is time to say “Yu go where you need to and I will follow”.
Here’s to plum pudding and the magic of synchronicity!

Please also email me if you would like to attend my new one day workshop about the interpretation of eclipses in your future. It will be life-changing, literally!
So many people have written to me asking about the April 29th eclipse that I decided to write a blog about eclipses.
There are actually two eclipses this month. The first is a total lunar eclipse on April 15th at 3.42 am Eastern Time. The second eclipse is a Solar Annular Eclipse on April 29th at 2.14am Eastern Time. First of all, let’s address the question “what is the difference between a lunar eclipse and a solar eclipse?”. Then we will address the question “what does an eclipse mean in the context of my life?”.
Eclipses occur when the earth, Sun, and Moon form a straight line. During a solar eclipse, the light of the Sun is blocked out as the Moon passes between the earth and the Sun. During a lunar eclipse, the reflective light of the Moon is extinguished as the earth passes between the Sun and Moon. In either case, light is eliminated. The effect of a solar eclipse lasts one year for each hour of the eclipse’s duration (usually about 3.5 years). The effect of a lunar eclipse varies in duration. Knowing when significant planets later transit over the eclipse point is key to chart interpretation.
An eclipse indicates what in your life needs to be changed. It is like an alarm signal telling you where to focus. This depends on its location within your natal chart (the natal chart delineates the soul or astral body which resides on the astral plane). It literally changes the manner in which you receive the energies or rays of the planets.
It is particularly significant when an eclipse occurs on or very near to one of your planets. As an example, Martha Stewart experienced an eclipse at a powerful point in her chart just before she fell from grace in 2003.
It is important to distinguish between eclipses that occur at the North Node of the Moon or the South Node of the Moon. The North Node enables energy to enter life, whereas the South Node allows energy to exit. Two very different things…
The first eclipse this month is a North Node lunar eclipse which usually creates openings. The later solar eclipse is a different animal: a South Node solar eclipse indicating a need to let go… It occurs at 8 degrees Taurus. If you do have a planet at or within a couple of degrees of this point, check it out more thoroughly. You should also investigate the solar eclipse further if it opposes a planet in your natal chart.
Always remember that an eclipse is one of many astrological indicators in your chart. To get the full picture, you have to look at all of the details.
The next eclipse carrying huge global significance occurs in 2020. More about that in time…
I will also write shortly about the cardinal cross currently shaping up in the skies…
I’m sure you all know that as well as being one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, Benjamin Franklin was an author, scientist, inventor, and diplomat. What you perhaps don’t know is that he was a highly skilled astrologer!
Franklin could predict weather patterns and even wrote ‘Poor Richard’s Almanac’ under the pen name Richard Saunders. Here is a quote from his book:
“Suffer me to observe that whoever studies the eclipses of former Ages and compares them with the great events that happened (as every true astrologer ought to do) shall find that the fall of the Assyrian, Persian, Grecian, and Roman monarchies, each of them, was remarkably preceded by great and total eclipses of the heavenly bodies. Observations of this kind, joined with the ancient and long-tryed rules of our art… make me tremble for the Empire now in being.”
By the time the Declaration of Independence was signed, Franklin was an extremely adept astrologer. So do you think that the birth of the United States occurred at a random time or that it was meticulously planned to the minute? The answer? Meticulously timed to the minute… This is why second house of finances in the US chart insured prosperity. But will it continue? The answer will be included in my new book.
Remember that the natal chart is a delineation of an entity’s soul (the unconscious) whether it is an individual entity or a collective entity. Just as the energy shifts in a person’s life can be calculated, the likely events and shifting fortunes of a nation can be determined.

I have created a great online Metaphysics program containing audio classes, videos, learning materials, and quizzes. It is a lot of fun and extremely in depth. Students in month 3 are already interpreting complex charts and becoming acquainted with the tarot. If you are interested in studying metaphysics, click here for more information.
My new online program “How To Create A THRIVING Spiritual Business” is also now available. Click here for more information.
Let’s face it: in this day and age, everyone should be mastering metaphysics! It was good enough for Benjamin Franklin!
I often go into deep meditation leaving pens and paper on the floor for trance writing or drawing. This morning, I came out of meditation to find this piece of writing that I though I should share:
“Don’t pin your hopes and happiness upon any one person, any one project, any one place or any one thing.
Don’t allow momentary small consciousness to doubt, cloud, or confuse our plans because we must respect your limitations.
Be not limited! Be love, that’s all. Love yourself, therefore everything. Love now, therefore always. Love this, therefore that.
Be right here, right now, just right as you are.
We are at work. You need not be.
There is magic at work and it is (y)ours. Pin your trust in us, al(l)ways.
We love you – oh more than you know.
Smile, rejoice. Oh let our music play.”
I wanted to follow up on my recent blog about eclipse impacts. If you didn’t read it or want to read it again just click here.
The November 2013 eclipse reached its peak just off the mid west coast of Africa. We can always anticipate the eclipse impacts to occur within 6 months and sure enough we are reading about horrifying human rights disasters in South Sudan. Click here for more information about South Sudan. Not far from the eclipse path in South Africa Nelson Mandela returned home to spirit.
In Israel’s chart the eclipse occurred right on the Moon’s South Node. You may have heard of the Moon’s Nodes as the head and tail of the dragon or Rahu and Ketu. The North Node is a point at which energy is drawn in (the mouth) while the south node is indicative of energy being released or pulled away. If the North Node is the mouth, the South Node is the anus. An eclipse occurring on Israel’s South Node signaled an exit. Occurring in the first house this exit would be a significant part of the nation’s identity. Sure enough, Ariel Sharon passed away after several years in a coma. This is a great loss for Israel and a highly symbolic event. Sharon pioneered the Israeli West Bank settlements deemed illegal by the international community. Just after Sharon’s passage to spirit, the European Community again rebuked Israel’s settlements. Click here to see Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s reaction over “the construction of a few houses”.
If you want to track eclipses, here is a link to the NASA website. Remember that, astrologically speaking, an eclipse is an eclipse is an eclipse. In other words, each eclipse provides an important indicator of upcoming energies telling part of the overall story. Always be sure to fully investigate any astrological activity around the Moon’s Nodes in your chart, especially the malefic South Node.

Here are dates and times (Universal Time) for 2014 eclipses:
Total Lunar April 15th 7.45am UT
Annular Solar April 29th 6.03am UT
Total Lunar October 8th 10.54am UT
Partial Solar October 23rd 9.43pm UT
Let’s end by reminding ourselves of Mandela’s honorable legacy of human rights and peace.
Ok, so it’s no surprise to those of us interested in metaphysics know that everything is connected. We know that there is an incredible interplay between the planetary movements and our lives…

All the best for 2014!
Did you know that Horseshoe crabs mate at the Full Moon and have been doing so for 400 million years? Cicero and Pliny observed that oysters and shellfish in general grow with the cycle of the Moon. Fishermen know that crabs are largest at the Full Moon and eels begin migration just after the Full Moon. It has also been found that fish bite more when the Moon is rising and setting.
Frank A. Brown, Jr. conducted a famous experiment in which he transported oysters from Long Island to Illinois. He knew that oysters feed every 12.5 hours (half the lunar day). On arrival in Illinois, Brown wired the oysters in a salt water tray so that he could monitor when they opened their shells. After two weeks of opening up and feeding at the same time as in Long Island, they changed their schedule to the cycles of the tide in Illinois (upper and lower transits of the Moon had the town in Illinois been coastal). In other words, they were reacting to the Moon in their new location…
Get yourself a notebook or diary and monitor the effects of the Full Moon so that you can see for yourself how closely intertwined we are with Moon phases. These are some of the things that you might monitor:
- World events
- Menstrual cycle
- Depression and nervous tension in people
- Sexual appetite
- Pets’ behavior
