Post-Blood Moon: The Cardinal Grand Cross
Coming in on the heels of the Blood Moon is the Grand Cross. And we are in the heart of it now, today. This is a planetary alignment that is bringing great change to the earth and her residents.
Come gather ‘round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin`’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or your sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’
The Hopi elders have said about these times that there is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and so strong that there are those who will be afraid and cling to the shore and not join in the flow. Those that do, the ones who choose not to change, will be torn apart and suffer greatly.
It is vital that you do not take the negative energies being seen at this time personally and not to dwell on any negativity in your personal situation. You can use this time for the positive to dig into the depth of your heart and soul and shift old behaviors and beliefs now. If you were to take this planetary shift personally, by having the “poor me” attitude, your emotional and spiritual growth will come to a dead full stop. By letting go of your addiction to struggle, drama and pain, you will arrive at a place of stillness within where growth, abundance and peace of mind will be waiting for you.
We are in a time of great opportunity during these days in April and the benefit is to be aware and prepared. The emotional stirrings we have been experiencing are due in major part to this four-planet alignment: The Grand Cross.
As an earthquake can split open fissures in the earth, all is now akin to a personal earthquake in your personal life. Emotional, physical and spiritual pressure has been building and now it is, whether you accept it or not, being released.
The power of this time is signified by the myth of the Phoenix rising from the ashes of the karma we have burned and where we grieve for what has been lost. It is in these metaphoric ashes where you can let go of old ways and old habits. It is important to let go of any anger or feelings of bitterness or revenge for what has happened in this last cycle. Do ritual to let it go.
Now as you emerge, you are clean and beginning a new cycle and the energy is available to make and feel great change for the better in your life and the life of the ones around you.
The benefit is to come into gratitude for all that you have and all that you have done. By taking this stance the fear and anxiety that can be triggered now will be converted into an energetic force for personal and world change.
It is the time to join in community moving toward a place of working with each other for the greater good, the positive side of all that is coming toward you. And what is coming is big. These days in April are the most transformational times we have known in many centuries. That is why we are feeling the urgency to complete tasks, bond friendships and to release all relationships and situations, whether in your personal, business or emotional lives, that do not nurture your heart. These are times of cleansing of the emotional body which gives way to the realignment in of body, mind and spirit.
The Hopi the elders say this about these times:
We Are the Ones
We've Been Waiting For
You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.
Now, you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour.
And there are things to be considered:
- Where are you living?
- What are you doing?
- What are your relationships?
- Are you in right relation?
- Where is your water?
- Know your garden.
- It is time to speak your Truth.
- Create your community. Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
Take the time now to meditate, pray, come to stillness and do ritual. Bring joy to your fellows as this river takes us to where we can be fully our authentic selves.
Enlightenment is remembering who we are.
Tonight, gather together in ceremony, have a drum circle, a women's circle, a sweat lodge, a temascal, a grand gathering and feast all to welcome without fear what is all around us now. Whatever you feel, do it now. It is a gift from the universe. Accept it with gratitude.
I send much love and light. Use these energies to love more and allow yourselves to receive love. And stay in the truth of “We are the ones we have been waiting for".
