Astrological Ramblings

This past week I have been researching some more into the Galactic Center, and more specifically the Grand Cross that is formed between the Galactic Center, the Super Galactic Center, the Galactic Anti-Center, and whatever the fuck opposes the Super Galactic Center (I don’t know what this is yet, but I know there is SOMETHING there). Since a Grand Cross is a series of squares connecting different things in the chart, it got me thinking about square aspects in general. Now, obviously, with the Grand Cross aspect pattern in a chart (any kind of Grand Cross, GC related or not), actually balancing the oppositions is key. However, when looking at square aspects in general I have always felt that the midpoint between the square aspects can be used as a way to funnel the tension of the square aspect (thus becoming a place to release the tension). So, back to the GC and the “Galactic Grand Cross” (that’s what I’m calling it for now, lol) – I decided to do the midpoints between each of the different squares in the Galactic Grand Cross. When you do this, you get:**Midpoint between the GC and the SGC = 15-degrees Scorpio**Midpoint between the SGC and the GaC = 15-degrees Leo**Midpoint between the GaC and whatever opposes the SGC = 15 -degrees Taurus**Midpoint between the GC and whatever opposes the SGC = 15-degrees Aquarius***The above COULD vary slightly depending on the degrees of the GC/GaC/SGC/whatever opposes the SGC when you were born/for the chart […]
Here is the video that goes along with this post (if you are more of watcher than a reader) I wanted to type up something quickly about the Super Galactic Center, to at least acknowledge its presence. I wasn’t really going to even get into the Super GC yet, but I felt like it was time for it to be mentioned, especially with more people asking when squares to the GC will be explored. The Super GC ties into the squares with the GC because of where it is located in the chart – right now it is at 2-degrees Libra. This is within the window of orb that I would be looking at for squares to the GC. The Super GC does appear to move more quickly than the GC does – for instance, when I was born in November 1987, the Super GC was at 29-Virgo (so that it does seem to move more quickly than the GC does, which was between 26 & 27-degrees Sagittarius for most of the 20th Century). To pull the super GC in your chart, go to astro.com and create your natal chart. Then go to “extended chart selection.” Once there, go down to where it says “additional objects” and find the “list of fixed stars” (and click on it). Go down the list until you get to the G’s and find the option listed as “Gal.Pole, GPol” and pick it. Then pull your chart again and you will see where the Super […]
