Fixed Grand Cross

Definition of Fixed 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 Fixed Grand Cross happens when all four planets involved are in the mutable signs of fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.

This brings a very different energy to the Grand Cross than say a Cardinal Grand Cross or a Mutable Grand Cross, for the fixed energy is probably the most stubborn and challenging of the three, even though Grand Crosses can be challenging enough in and of themselves.

The moon is waxing when it is growing from new to full. This period makes up the first half of the lunar calendar. During this time, the moon will pass through approximately six of the astrological signs. There is much folklore about what activities to do and not to do during a waxing moon.
