Equinox, Solstice, Eclipse Cycles and the Grand Cross

Written by Sherrie Locke on 2 Road, April 2014

As many of you have heard, right now on this planet, on this day, we are experiencing a “wormhole” or eclipse passage – a very powerful eclipse passage for humanity.

On the last full moon, we had a total lunar eclipse at 25 Libra 16 on 3 Ajpu, April 15, 2014. This was also the first day of Passover for 2014. I was fortunate to witness it firsthand with two very dear fellow surfers of the Zuvuya, Cass Maenius and the infamous Shay Addams at a sacred site, Tak’alik Ab’aj in Guatemala.

Spring Equinox and Fall Equinox 2014

Let us begin with current events so far this year. Spring Equinox (in northern latitudes) was on March 20th, at 10:57 AM Guatemala time. Note: I am always surprised when an indigenous group or even a country such as Mexico staunchly celebrates the equinox on the 21st of March or September every year when they rarely occur on those dates as they shift a bit due to astrological alignments. I don’t think we have another equinox on the 21st for about 50 years or so, give or take a decade.

So we will stick with the correct and exact time the sun moves into the zodiac at the beginning, Aries, which is the Spring Equinox, also referred to as the Vernal Equinox north of the equator, and called the Autumnal Equinox south of the equator.

The Autumnal Equinox occurs on September 22 at the exact time the sun enters Libra, which is 9:29 PM Guatemala time this year.

Equinoxes are very special events here on earth, since they provide the only eight minutes of harmonic balance we receive on this planet: four minutes in the spring when the sun enters Aries and four minutes in the fall when the sun enters Libra. As a child, I got to go on field trips to a big building (usually the Masonic temple) on an equinox if it fell during school hours, where we would do our science experiments with a raw egg to do the “balancing” trick to prove our theories. Fun!

Summer and Winter Solstices

The Solstice mark the extreme points north or south on the sun’s track, so the apex points or peak points or the reverse. I will explain traditional rituals for the four sacred holidays in a future post.

We also have annular eclipse cycles, which means they occur regularly annually. This happens about twice a year, usually Spring and Fall.

The Current Grand Cross

This year we are past halfway through a roughly three and a half-year passage marked by the recurring Grand Cross alignment (check any astrologer or Google for more info on this subject). We are at point 5 out of 7 exact alignments that will conclude roughly in April 2015.

This particular passage is past the midpoint.

So to recap, first we had the Equinox 2014 entry into Aries on March 20, then the new moon and eclipse wormhole began on March 30. Next the full moon total lunar eclipse took place at 25 Libra 16 on 3 Ajpu, April 15, 2014, a sustained transformational open wormhole eclipse passage maintained with the Grand Cross.

Tonight we have the new moon in Taurus and a Solar eclipse, which will trigger the next two weeks of this passage. Fasten your seat belts!

How Eclipses Affect People

I was taught that…

The lunar eclipses change the way we feel about things.

The solar eclipses change the way the world sees us.

The proof is in the pudding.

What are you seeing in your life during this incredible life changing evolutionary passage so far?

Remember to love and honor yourself and those close to you that are going through transformation and even life-changing events, personally, locally and globally during this unprecedented time on earth.

Blessed Be and be a Blessing –

Love and Light on our journeys!

See you on the other side of the eclipse passage!

Namaste’

Bon voyage!

Que el camino sagrado te bendiga!

Buen viaje!

Happy trails!
