Grand Cross

Definition of Grand Cross

Grand Cross is an astrological term used to describe a particular planetary alignment, where two planets in opposition make a square angle to another pair of opposing planets.

Grand crosses can happen in the cardinal signs, the mutable signs and the fixed signs. Fixed grand crosses are the most difficult with which to deal.



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.
