Energies that have been amping up throughout the summer of 2010 reach a climax now as each person faces their own personal test. This is the final exam and completion that brings access to new levels of inner seeing and experiencing. This is the time when you will face whatever stands in the way of the next phase of your personal evolution. In some way or other, you will find yourself resolving old issues and preparing to give birth to a new version of yourself. This new "you" brings with it a new field of possibilities.

Clearing the Old to Make Way for the New

This energetic climax is courtesy of this month's Cardinal Grand Cross involving Jupiter, Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn, the Moon in early Cancer, and Venus joining Mars and Saturn in early Libra. The sun in 15° Leo make stressful aspects to the entire Grand Cross. A grand cross is a combination of at least four squares and at least two oppositions. This month's grand cross has the power to create intense frictions and tensions, conflicts and deep upsets. Such intensities can lead to the demise of old structures, clearing the way for new creations.

Calling upon the "You" Most Closely Aligned with your New Visions

During this time, keep in mind that all manifestations come from inside you. To bring your dreams into physical reality, connect with the part of you that is most closely in resonance with your new visions.

At times, you may find yourself wondering why certain things are showing up now. You may see the unfulfilled dreams of past times arriving now, or those visions you have not yet come to fully embrace. Whatever comes before you now, trust in the higher good of the universe. Read the symbols of the realities you encounter to understand what is being asked of you. Physical situations are just window dressing pointing to realities buried deep within you.

Finding the Balancing Point With All You Encounter

Whatever you encounter, find a harmonizing/balancing point with it. It is especially important during this time of the Cardinal Grand Cross to be willing to take action -- to take the lead; to create and initiate based on what's being asked of you. This is not the time to hold back or allow yourself to be paralyzed by indecision. Act and then ask for guidance and feedback so you are prepared to act again. This test will be completed soon as next week's new moon brings opportunities for renewal that prepare you for the next part of your journey.
