This week on Living Astrology, we’re going to continue our interview with Laura Walker on the Black Moon-Lilith in Leo and how it will be effecting us over the next several months. We’ll also be continuing with the readings that we ran out of time for last week.
Laura Walker, M.ED is the author of “Eris: Archetype of Shadows, Crisis and Awakening at the Completion of the Mayan Calendar,” which chronicles her journey through the desert to discover the nature of the planet that changed the solar system and “The Astrology of the Black Moon: Guide to Healing the Shadow Side,” which reveals the powerful transits of the death and rebirth cycle governed by the planet the ancients called Tiamat, the planet between Mars and Jupiter whose shattered remains are now the Asteroid Belt.
Laura hosts oraclereport.com, where her books are available for free download, and where she posts a daily energetic analysis. Her other site, mahavidyaporject.com, is dedicated to exploring the personal teachings of the Mahavidyas, wisdom goddesses of pre-historic India.

Everyone has been talking about the Grand Cardinal Cross this April. Bracketed as it was by a Lunar Eclipse and a Solar Eclipse and a square from Uranus to Pluto, and Pluto moving retrograde. Planetary transits this April have been some of the most intense that we’ve experienced in a long time. It literally leaves one breathless!
The Cardinal Cross occurred on April 21 – All 4 planets involved (Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter, Mars) lined up at 13 degrees of their respective signs creating 90 degree angles to one another, and two oppositions. Squares (90 degrees.) and Oppositions (180 degrees) are known to be challenging aspects. And so what we had was several different aspects forming that create obstacles, challenges, change and possibly chaos for everyone. However, cardinal crosses have been forming over the past several months. This incarnation of the Cardinal Cross didn’t just show up overnight. They were not as exact as this cross on April 21, 2014, but as far back as August 2013 we were watching the cardinal cross form and alternate with a Cardinal T-Square (another very energetic and challenging aspect). As different planets passed through Libra in the Fall we also saw versions of the Cardinal Cross form. The bottom line is that we have been dealing with this kind of upheaval for several months now. We’ve had a lot of time for things to come up and for us to connect with a new way of being in the world.
The sum total of the energies of the Cardinal Crosses was to shake us out of inertia, to clear out the “clutter” in our lives that held us back, pointing us in new directions, and begging us to be our authentic selves. The discomfort and anxiety that came up for us was apparent in places where we were stuck, or where fear was in place. The earlier Cardinal Crosses really brought that out for me, and for most of the people I have talked to over the past several months. We have had several chances to work with our shadow selves, to heal the parts of us that were out of alignment with a new paradigm world.
Now that the April, 21 exact Cardinal Cross has passed however, I think that it was almost anticlimactic. That the precursor crosses laid the foundation for the direction we are headed. These changes were seen in relationships, jobs, health, and new directions in life in general. The April Cardinal Cross was not so much revolutionary as it was revealing to us – a realization of the new energy. It feels like we really have connected with what is new and what can sustain us into the future. All we have to do is move boldly forward into that new reality for us, and by shedding old ideas and old fears we can really be our True, Authentic selves.
