Cardinal Grand Cross

Definition of Cardinal Grand Cross

A Grand Cross is a planetary alignment in the astrology chart. It consists of four planets at 90-degree angles with each other and each being in a different astrological quality.

Every sign of the zodiac is either cardinal, mutable, or fixed. Therefore, a Cardinal Grand Cross happens when all four planets involved are in the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. This brings a very different energy to the Grand Cross than say a Fixed Grand Cross or a Mutable Grand Cross, for the cardinal energy is probably the most frustrating of the three because of the lack of patience, even though Grand Crosses can be challenging enough in and of themselves.

When someone says the moon is gibbous, it means that more than 50% of the moon is illuminated in the sky. This happens when the moon is moving towards a full moon and after the full moon when we are approaching a new moon.
