These are the Sabians and planets involved:

- Aries 14 conjures an image of the Garden of Eden and the snake, tempting the Original Couple into “something more.” It reminds me of an episode of Twilight Zone, where things go on almost to the end of the hour, perfect and light. The story is about an idyllic little town that’s like living in Happy Days with frosting. Only at the end, you find out this place is actually Hell. Divine discontent and human boredom are probably the age-old reasons for evolution itself, both individually and as a species.
- Cancer 14 is a man looking into the distance and the dark. It’s the void from which all things are created and born in the symbolism of the biblical Creation story. It may be a portrait of someone yearning to manifest more—or at least opening to more creative possibilities.
- Libra 14 is a man who has worked hard to create his surroundings and is ready for rest, to return to the dream state where we co-create with our subconscious. Many of our creative ideas and solutions come from such downtime when our minds are on autopilot and our psychological needs become characters in complex dream dramas to bring us information about what we need to do or resolve in our lives.
- Capricorn 14 involves a cultural artifact, perhaps digging it up. It has something to do with what we leave behind and what that symbolic object means.
I've heard that a Cardinal Grand Cross can make accomplishing goals challenging because we want to accomplish everything at once. This lack of focus often leads to achieving little for the "shotgun" approach. That's why we're so lucky to have a retrograde winter for sorting out where our spring energies need to be channeled.
What do I want to create in the world and what do I want to leave behind?
