Day of Destiny/Grand Cross articles:
After my friend, Rick Riedel gave me the "lowdown"
on the big August, 1999 astrological Grand Cross
"blockbuster," I nearly fell out of my chair when
I found this. Who can say what will happen?
Day of Destiny
Where will You be August 13, 1999?
Now you can learn the untold history of
August 13, 1999
New discoveries about the Aztec Sun Calendar
reveal secret information about this pivotal date
in human history...
August 13, 1999 was forecast by the ancient
Aztecs to be a profound turning point in history.
Aztec culture and spiritual practice were highly
focused on this date which for them was hundreds
of years in the future. The Aztecs or Mexica
(Me-SHEE-kah) considered us to be their great-
great-great-great-great grandchildren. They wanted
to give us a condensed and completed version of
all the things we would need to meet the challenges
of the time around August 13, 1999. They used the
Aztec Sun Calendar as a the carrier of their message.
Oral tradition has kept this message alive. The
Aztecs are still thriving in Mexico today and we
need their wisdom now.
The Aztec Sun Calendar is a fascinating puzzle that
is assembled piece by piece throughout the course of
Day of Destiny. It reveals profound insights into the
interconnectedness of our universe, and the vital
importance of August 13, 1999.
Reading Day of Destiny is a powerful initiation.
Many wonders of the natural world will begin to
open up and reveal themselves to you as you go
through it. Your capacities for integrated thinking
will resurface after being dormant for centuries.
You'll develop clarity and power. Your dream
world will begin to blend with your waking state,
and your subconscious mind will come up to meet
your conscious mind as you read Day of Destiny
through to the end. You may feel sleepy as you go
through this process. It's natural. The sleepiness
comes from your brain and nervous system learning
how to integrate and expand their range of motion
while you're awake.
A living tradition is going to be revealed to you as
you read through the book. This tradition lives and
breathes inside you. It lives in all of us because it
forms precisely and exactly the structures of our
perceptions and processes. This tradition is a
dynamic culture of life. It can't be lost, because it
transcends all cultures and times. Every living
creature, including you, embodies this tradition
by virtue of being alive.
Day of Destiny is a story that connects us all
through a vast and beautiful web of conflict and
freedom. It's a story that, once you get what it's
about, will help you put your world together in
ways you never thought possible. It's a story of
how you can, how we can, survive.

The Grand Cross of August 17-18, 1999
During the two days of August 17 and 18, 1999, one of
the most powerful and fearsome configurations known to
astrologers will make itself shown in the heavens. This
configuration involves the participation of all the major
planets except Pluto and two minor asteroids in one of the
four fixed signs of the zodiac. This forms a "Grand Cross,"
where all of the planets are either square or opposite each
Although apocalyptic prognosticators get excited about big
conjunctions, like the one approaching in Taurus on May
5, 2000, these have historically been markers of a changing
of the guard, rather than precipitators of actual events. The
conjunction is classically the mark of the end of one cycle
and the start of another. The massive "Super Conjunction"
of February, 1962 was an example of this. Not much happened
on the conjunction itself, but within18 months, John Kennedy
was shot, then the war in Vietnam escalated and soon, people
were walking on the Moon. The Grand Cross is, instead, a
configuration found in the middle of the cycle; the power
point of the cycle.
The likes of the configuration that will be occurring in
August of 1999 has not been seen in recent times. There
was a weaker version of this configuration on January
11, 1910. This was in cardinal signs and included 7 major
planets and 1 of the asteroids. The Grand Cross is part
of a "crossing over" to a new era or age. It is to be noted
that the first air transportation service, utilizing dirigibles
in Germany, was established on this date. It is easy to
see how the advances in technology transformed the world
from a horse-and-buggy condition to the high-tech world
we live in now. The Grand Cross coming this next August
is much more powerful and features 9 major planets, the
Moon's nodes, Chiron and 2 of the 4 asteroids in fixed
signs. It will take someone with more sophisticated computer
software than I have to research how long it has been since
this configuration was last seen. It will affect everyone and
everything. The Grand Cross can occur in any of 3 modes;
cardinal, fixed or mutable. These correspond to the 3 gunas
of the Vedas or rajas, tamas or sattva. This one is in the
tamasic, or fixed signs. These are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio
and Aquarius. The fixed signs have long been recognized
as crucial in the experience of mankind. The Sphinx is a
composite of the fixed cross. It has the head of a man
(Aquarius), the front paws of a lion (Leo), the body and
rump of a bull (Taurus) and the wings of an eagle (Scorpio).
Here is the lineup:
In the earth sign of Taurus, we have Jupiter and Saturn.
These two giants classically rule the everyday, down-to-
earth concerns of society. The stock market, housing,
crop abundance or failure, money and the sense of comfort
or anxiety over these things are under the influence of
Jupiter and Saturn. In the Grand Cross, they represent
the Earth and her relationship to humanity. All of the
planets can operate in positive or negative ways. Here
we have either the reverence for Mother Earth and her
resources or the final destruction of plant and animal
species, the fouling of air and water and, possibly, Her
revolt against this disrespect.
Opposite these two, in the water sign of Scorpio, we have
the Moon, Mars, Chiron and the asteroid Juno. Here we
see the pressures brought about by the New World Order.
The police state. Repression, control, the wounded psyche
of a frustrated, confined society in fear over crime, change,
and the reluctance to part with the "old way" of doing most
everything. Even though this may be the area that precipitates
the crisis envisioned by this planetary configuration, there
is the least amount of staying power here. It may be that
some action by the ruling elite will trigger the situation,
but there is little here to sustain it. On a positive note,
here we have the courage to pour forth energy and healing
from the millions of light workers out there, and the
inclination to step forward to teach and heal those who
are feeling fright and suffering.
Square to this opposition, we have Neptune and Uranus
in the air sign of Aquarius. The two slowest-moving and
influential planets in this configuration are here representing
the New Age; The Age of Aquarius. This is the social
awareness, the group-conscious energies that today can
be seen in reams of channeled material, world meditation
days and the trend away from consumerism, materialism
and the quest for power. At their worst, these two planets
represent fixedness of thinking and reluctance to move on.
At their best, they fuel the paradigm shift, the jump to the
next quantum level, the leap to the next dimensional
Opposite this is a stellium in the fire sign of Leo. The
Sun, Mercury,Venus, the asteroid Ceres and the North
Node of the Moon occupy the sign of self-conscious
identity. Here we have the leaders of our governments
and religious organization. Here, too are the creative
abilities of light workers everywhere. The self-assurance
that comes from connection of the personality with the
soul. This is the self-confidence that comes from hours
spent in meditation; from lessons learned via discrimination
All of these planets are involved in a configuration that
forms a cross, the arrangement of stress, tension and
power. In the cyclic view, this is the position like that of
a person pedaling a bicycle when the pedals are perfectly
parallel to the ground. This is the time to apply maximum
power to the pedals. It is here that the champion asserts
himself and the pretender finds that there is not enough
strength to push the crank another turn. This is the eye
of the needle, the point of focus for all of the cosmic energy,
both entering and leaving our lovely planet. We all have
to go through this funnel; the New World Order and the
New Age; both will find this as the make or break moment
that will decide the destiny of us all.
The one notable exception in this configuration is the
planet Pluto. Motionless in Sagittarius, Pluto is ceasing
its annual retrograde motion, a position of great power.
In 1978, Pluto moved inside the orbit of Neptune, and,
for the next 20 years, from this unusual vantage point,
has traced out it's defining pattern of evolution for society
as a whole. This phenomenon happens once every 250
years or so and these periods have been remarkable in
human history. The birth of Jesus Christ took place during
one of these periods. Pluto will be emerging from its inner
position at the time of the Grand Cross. It is the one light
of hope during this configuration. Hopefully, it signals
the growth of societal consciousness to the point that
world destruction or enslavement will be eschewed in
favor of enlightenment, discrimination and brotherhood.
Pluto makes a wonderful trine aspect to all the planets in
Leo. This emphasizes the ability of each individual to make
their own choices during this crisis. Pluto is also making
a beneficent sextile to Uranus and Neptune in Aquarius,
indicating the power of the coming New Age will have a
chance to assert itself.
Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that there is an eclipse
at 18 degrees Leo 21 minutes on August 10, just a week
before. This is not just any eclipse, either. This eclipse is
the first in a new cycle of 19 Saros cycles, a further
indication of a new beginning.
Seers have had some things to say about these two days.
The California psychic, Charles Jeron Criswell King,
popularly known simply as "Criswell," says that, time
and time again, he has dreamed of a day when people
will speak to one another, and when they talk about
tomorrow, nothing will come out of their mouths.
That same day, Criswell predicts, what he calls a "black
rainbow" will encircle the earth, and will slowly suck
away most of the air in the atmosphere. Men everywhere
will die in the streets. But the disaster will last only a
short while, with survivors coming back afterward to
rebuild the earth. Criswell says this day will be August
18, 1999. Criswell knew nothing of astrology and it's
anyone's guess as to where he came up with this date,
as he made his prediction sometime in the 1950's.
Nostradamus, usually vague and metaphorical, comes
right out and says:
"The year 1999, in the seventh month
There will appear in the heavens the
sign of the King of Terror
When the great leader of the Mongols
(Orient) is reborn And Mars (war)
reigns supreme once more" X, 22
Although moderns would see the 7th month as July, the
writings of Nostradamus were translated from Old French
and the term "sept" is involved. First and foremost
Nostradamus was an astrologer, and possibly stuck to
tradition, counting months as "moons" or lunation cycles.
In 1999, the Grand Cross occurs a week after the 7th
Moon of 1999, the eclipse at 18b21. This is the "sign of
the King of Terror" referred to above. The "leader of the
Mongols," in the opinion of many, refers to a "Lord of
Darkness" or non-physical being. I would be inclined to
think that this refers to solar flares, of which there have
been many; a pattern which began in August of 1998. A
very large flare could certainly generate the "black rainbow"
envisioned by Criswell. In any case, Nostradamus sees
this time span as being important, and we would be
remiss to ignore him.
It always seems like prophecies are usually gruesome, but
because of free will, and because of the rapid changes
going on here and now, predictions are always suspect. It
is safe to say, however, that the planets will continue on
their present track and enter into this Grand Cross
configuration no matter what else comes to pass. It is
best, then, to be prepared and watchful as the time
approaches. We could be talking about anything from a
pole shift to political upheaval. Personal experience tells
me that political tensions are more likely than physical
Keep in mind that these two days are not a flash in the
pan. Rather, the planets assemble, one by one and
tension builds as yet another planet enters a fixed sign.
These two days (actually 2 1/2 days, when the Moon is
in Scorpio. This is from August 16th at 3:40 PM, PDT
until 3:31 AM, PDT on August 19th) are simply the peak
of the energy push. Anyone born under any of the fixed
signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius will be profoundly
affected during these two days. Some interesting political/
economic leaders born under fixed signs are:
Bill Clinton (Leo)
Hillary Clinton (Scorpio)
Saddam Hussein (Taurus)
Tony Blair (Taurus)
John Howard - Australian Prime Minister (Leo)
Prince Charles (Scorpio)
Bill Gates (Scorpio)
I'm sure there are more, I just don't have their birthdays.
When confronted with challenges such as this, there is a
tendency to react with fear and trepidation. If indeed the
New World Order will use this opportunity to make their
final moves towards power and control, fear is their primary
weapon. The magnificent trine of the powerful Pluto to the
"personal planets" of the Sun, Mercury and Venus in Leo
will be felt by each and every individual who honors light
and freedom as a connection to their inner spark, their
own soul. Be it in silent meditation, or via caring, encouraging
contact with close friends, it is the self confidence and
optimism of individuals everywhere that can distribute the
transformative power of the Divine energy presented through
Pluto, the one planet that stands apart from the strife and
pressure of the Grand Cross. We can all hang on to our
personal connection to The One Creator. If ever there was
a time for a "world meditation day" this is it. The best times
for this would be at the traditional times of sunrise, noon,
sunset and midnight, as at these times, there would be a
fixed sign rising, no matter what your location. I never make
predictions; nobody really knows what will happen. This is
a free will zone and this does make the outcome uncertain.
All we can do is realize that this powerful astrological
configuration is going on and be ready, in body, mind and spirit.
