  Immanuel Kant Google Videos

Immanuel Kant was one of the greatest German philosophers,
one of the most influential thinkers of modern Europe, and

Cardinal Grand Cross

Wednesday April 23, 2014, the planets align to form a Cardinal Grand Cross - the most powerful planetary pattern of the year. Each of these planets is in a "pushy" Cardinal sign that can create chaos born from the need to make change happen. The affects will be life-changing and long-lasting.

Pluto's overwhelming energies can hit you like a ton of bricks. It's about transformation, regeneration and rebirth - out with the old and in with the new. Pluto - like the Hindu Goddess Kali - must destroy to re-create. Kali means "the black one" and represents "time" and "beyond time". Pluto asks you to transcend that which you believe and come out stronger as a result. This planet rules destruction, death, obsession, kidnapping, coercion, viruses, waste, crime, the underworld, along with many forms of subversive activity such as terrorism. It is about secrets and covert activities - that which is hidden from view - and forces you to reveal the truth. Pluto's energies are often focused on the masses and what the collective must do. Scary or not - Pluto's purpose is to bring truth, sometimes with collateral damage. Things are complicated with Pluto, but they get done.

April 2014 is the month of the long-anticipated Cardinal Grand Cross - the aspect pattern that's exact on April 23 forming for many decades, a hologram swirling in the seemingly random movements of the cosmos awaiting its moment of emergence. That is about to arrive with both deeply personal themes and vast global ones. They share a common thread, and that is trust. Read more ...

Since mid-February, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto have moved even closer together. Like three people crowded into a cramped elevator or space, the closer they get, the more we feel their friction. The gift of squares is that they force us to deal. Whatever's been stuffed down or ignored will come up, and if you courageously confront it, your life could transform forever. You could think of it as an astrological juice cleanse. The detoxing part is no fun, but when it's over, you're glowing, light and free. The Grand Cross: A 4-Way Showdown
