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.



An ephemeris is a map of the planets. Because the planets are in constant motion, that map is going to change constantly. Ephemerides come in either midnight or noon versions, and show you where the planets are (or were for a date in the past or will be for a date in the future) at either midnight or noon GMT.
