Declinations of the Grand Square - 2010

In my article on JAstrology I speak about declinations of the planets being in critical areas of the Zodiac.  One way to show you this is by creating a declination chart (graph) that shows the Moon's transit Out of Bounds at the top of the graph (for Cancer), Pluto as the bottom of the graph (for Capricorn) and the other planets all tightly grouped in the middle around the equator. Although the Equator would seemingly indicate all the planets being in the same sign, it is the dividing point for the North and South declinations. The North is the equator to the Tropic of Cancer and all the signs from Aries to Virgo. The South is from the equator to the Tropic of Capricorn and all the sign from Libra to Pisces. The signs on either side of the zero declination (aka equator) are Pisces, Aries, Virgo and Libra. At the opposing ends of the declination are the degrees of Tropic (and beyond). The degrees of Tropic are 23 deg 27 min. Anytime planets exceed 23.27, then the planet is considered to be Out of Bounds (OOB) by declination. The OOB energies vary depending upon the planet, but it typically indicates a sense of vulnerability.

Fiery Tidal Wave - Grand Cross 2010

The impact of the Grand Cross this month could feel like we are being hit with the force of a tsunami.  With seven planets in the rare mix of energies (ten squares and seven oppositions), the majority of the planets will be in tight alignments in Cardinal modalities that we are likely to feel the need to react spontaneously to any dire event. There are several planet alignments in this Grand Square that might encourage us to act with controlling choices causing significant damage on the victims of our wrath. Or, we may be the victims with serious consequences. Each of us should use preventive measures, safety precautions and stay attentive to our environments as we move through this Grand Square (Cross) influence on August 5, 6 and 7th.
