The point opposite the focal planet, which is unoccupied, is nevertheless a sensitive point in the chart I tend to think of it as a ghost leg.
The point opposite Mars that would form a Grand Cross if it were occupied is, in fact, unoccupied, but is nevertheless an important, sensitive point. A T-square stimulates drive and courage, but also tension and conflict. The native can be very active and achievement-oriented, especially if this aspect pattern falls in cardinal or fixed signs, but much energy can be squandered in needless conflicts and frustrations.
Cardinal T-squares can be very impatient, but also enterprising and initiating.
Fixed T-squares can be persevering, but also stubborn, unyielding, or they can hold on to problems and frustrations for too long. Mutable T-squares can produce much restlessness, frequent whims, and frequent changes of mind, but can be very adept at adapting to circumstances. The focal planet Mars in the case of the sample chart is the point of great activity, overcompensation, and activation.
Subconscious promptings are focused into the unoccupied area opposite the focal planet. It can be revealing to note the transits through this area — during these periods there may be important life events. Sakoian and L.
Acker find in the T-square the character of Saturn, and consider that this configuration gives certain obstacles and the necessity of overcoming them, and also a strong, vigorous, ambitious aspiration to act. Pressure and an appreciation of conflict are necessary here for resolving a planet in quadrature.
The energy of the T-square can lead to significant achievements. The T-square is a push to success. Sakoian and Acker remark that the T-square indicates immediate crisis situations, and this quality is strongly accented in cardinal signs or angular houses. March and J. McEvers state that in a T-square the opposition is connected with attitudes and the square with actions; as a whole, it is a dynamic configuration from which the native derives driving strength.
When the T-square is in fixed signs the native operates slowly, but is resolute; as a preliminary, he will always find out all the possible problems before taking action. A mutable T-square usually indicates obstacles of indecision and wavering. Kozyritskoj and M. A configuration of aspects formed by three trines, whose planet pairs connect together three points of a horoscope. Tense or challenging aspects may be necessary to provide the motivation to develop or grow these traits.
The native is self-sufficient in these areas of life. It is a harmonious and very stable configuration. To the person with a Grand Trine as the fundamental configuration in the radix chart and if the required abilities are in evidence , the vicissitudes of life are frequently not terrible, and external conditions help him to move ahead in life more successfully and faster than others, and moreover, with ease. However, as M. Kozyritskaja and M.
Levin observe, this is true only in the first phase of life; during the period from 24 to 30 years old there are inner pressures connected with the necessity for development and the embodiment of initial abilities and opportunities. The negative side of this configuration is that it is so stable that the person seldom ventures beyond the habitual. The stability of the Grand Trine turns on its static character — the unwillingness to develop.
A native is able to harmonize with external situations, or even find them easy, not having considered or resolved the problems involved. In charts of great people the Grand Trine is extremely seldom a leading configuration. But, as F. Acker remark, if a Grand Trine has Mars and Saturn, the problem connected to inertia and absence of motives for dynamic action does not enter.
These researchers underline that to harness the potential of a Grand Trine it is necessary to be guided and to use it in creative self-expression and efforts directed on spiritual self-improvement, otherwise, it will stay idle. When analyzing a Grand Trine in a specific horoscope it is necessary to pay special attention to what signs contain the given configuration usually they are signs of one element — this will indicate the likely manifestation of the Grand Trine. If one of the three points of a Grand Trine is in opposition to a planet, it gives the Grand Trine an opportunity to manifest more brightly.
In such configurations the most important point of the Grand Trine is the point that has the opposition aspect; and the point opposing it reveals unrealized aspirations, the fateful area of a horoscope. This configuration is called the Kite see below. This is a quincunx-sextile-quincunx. It features a crisis of — and a need for — perspective, in which the energies of the two sextiled planets find difficulty integrating with that of the apex, quincunxed planet. This dichotomy is not directly a conflict, rather a bewilderingly dualistic, seemingly irresolvable and compromising situation.
It is a secret to be decoded, an intense dilemma, or a visitation from the Unknown. Allowing things to happen rather than seeking to steer them is what is called for here: yet, underneath, there is a new kind of adepthood which brings in a new form of control without holding on, if we can see it.
Sun-Mercury and Mars-Pluto are sextile one another. There can be much uncertainty with the quincunx aspects, which can certainly stimulate restlessness and a vague feeling that the native is missing something undefinable.
With the quincunx, there is often a sense that one thing has to be given up in order to gain in the other area, that there are always difficult choices to make. The focal point in this case, Jupiter will be an area where big life lessons occur. The yod can be accentuated when an opposition is thrown in, with two semisextile aspects too.
The opposition forces the issue, and the apex planet then becomes very critical: what it represents needs to be consciously worked, owned, and integrated. A configuration of intense aspects, formed by four squares. A special case of the Grand Square is the Grand Cross.
Grand Square — the most intense quadrangular configuration. It encloses the person in a framework of severe constraints, which are perceived as pressing. The Grand Square gives a lot of energy which demands to be used, internal dynamism, insistence, force. Those with a Grand Square in the natal chart crystallize much very early. These are very dynamic people, but they manifest inflexibly in relating to the world. This is shown most rigidly in a Grand Square with two internal oppositions see the Grand Cross. A more moderate form is the Grand Square without an internal cross.
In this case there are no rigid tensions between the poles, there is less dynamism, and more flexibility. In general, it is not necessary to consider the Grand Square as a destructive configuration; on the contrary, it is a very stable pattern producing results through effort. A configuration of intense aspects, formed by four points of a horoscope which occur as pairs of oppositions connected by squares. Essentially, this aspect pattern is four interlocking squares. This Grand Cross is somewhat wide in orb. Life can be a series of challenges and crises for the native with a Grand Cross.
Obstacles can come from within attitudes and without external circumstances. Rarely will a person with this combination choose the path of least resistance. So, the universe is asking us to take a look at, not only what we have built already, but also what we wish to build moving forward.
It is an invitation to activate the dream, rather than relive the nightmare, to be proactive rather than reactive regarding our destiny in the world. With Sagittarius rising, its chart ruler is Jupiter. After years of seemingly no change on the material plane, spiritual maturation has occurred on the inner dimensions, and culminates with the appointed time of her awakening.
For those born between , Sedna was traveling through the last decant of Aries. This placement means that many of us are experiencing her activation in our own natal charts by the Uranus transit and the Cardinal Cross of the FM. She is indeed Sleeping Beauty, and what we have seen so far from what she has to teach us is only the tip of the iceberg pardon the pun.
Make no mistake - Destiny and Divine Providence are actively involved. These are indeed exciting times in which we live, and I still believe the best is yet to come. So what does this mean for us? She also says that the gift of the Wei linking vessels is that of holding us together during times of great change. I can think of no better time to activate the Wei Mai.
