The Sign of the Cross

Today is Earth Day. A day to celebrate Mother Earth and to thank her for all of her gifts. A day to reflect on what our role is in creating a New Earth.

It is also the peak of the Cardinal Grand Cross - a rare astrological event where Pluto in Capricorn is opposed Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Cancer is opposed Mars in Libra, all forming right angles to each other, or a cross. Every planet will be exactly at thirteen degrees of their respective signs today. 

What is the significance of the number thirteen? For me, thirteen represents the highest octave of energy, the one from which the many originate. There were twelve apostles and Jesus was the thirteenth. The Bible speaks of the twelve tribes of Israel and Israel is the thirteenth (the one out of the many). Did you know that there are thirteen articles of Jewish faith and the thirteenth is resurrection from the dead? Really?! We are still in the energy of Easter when Jesus was resurrected. 

It is as if the hand of God (the one) were making the sign of the cross over Earth, blessing her and her people (the many) with the energy of resurrection. What is being resurrected is our consciousness.

For many of us, the past several years has felt like a slow, painful death as we released the old in every way. It is time to come out from under our bushels and let our light shine. We are the ones we have been waiting for and this is our time. We are called to share our gifts with humanity to seed the resurrected consciousness on the planet so a New Earth can be born.

The gates to heaven are open for those with eyes to see and ears to hear. This is a great turning point for humanity. May we all choose to walk through the gates and create our Heaven on Earth.
