Cardinal Climax or 2010 Turning Point by kristin

September 3, 2010 at 1:35 pm 6 comments


At least Saturn is still a planet, unlike poor Pluto, which has been demoted. I must say that when I was a kid, Saturn was my favorite, and it WAS because of the rings. I liked the looks of the planet, not knowing at the time that it can be a stern taskmaster, bringing our attention (sometimes rather painfully) to things we need to learn. Well, just thinking about Saturn and Pluto together today, I typed them in to our modern oracle, Google. I found that there is something called a Cardinal Climax, which has to do with a quantum planetary shift – a critical tension point initiated by Saturn and Pluto who get together every 8 years or so. And this particular climax happened in July 2010 (thought I felt something!). Quite fascinating stuff,  and apparently, how we get along together as individuals, communities and nations heading into 2012 is key (so that’s it – all about restructuring our priorities, apparently).  And from the looks of the news these days, it’s high time, too.

Pluto for planetAt any rate, whether you are happy with Pluto’s new status or not, the important thing to remember is that Pluto’s astrological symbol indicates that the essence of spirit feeds physical matter through the medium of receptivity. So maybe it is time to listen within and follow our intuition, which can lead us on the path to raw food. When we eat more raw food it’s interesting how we become more attuned to the natural world, and when we are more attuned to nature, we are in a receptive mode.

We can learn more easily what our bodies need, and how to nourish them in ways that help us stay in tune with the cosmos. Sounds like pretty big stuff, and yet so simple, really.  Which is one reason it’s nice to be involved with people who are interested in the living food lifestyle. As hectic as the world can be at times, it is good to have a positive focus as we move forward. If you watched the Living Light Chef Showcase, Hot Chefs, Cool Kitchen, you’ll know that you don’t have to feel deprived either. You can enjoy a variety of gourmet dishes that your family and friends will also love. If you missed it, there’s still time to sign up for the replay with all of those great recipes, too.

    …THAT, was a great post Kristin….!” I enjoyed it thoroughly. Where did you learn that “Saturn can be a stern taskmaster, bringing our attention (sometimes rather painfully) to things we need to learn?” Very interesting. I have heard similar and never took the time to investigate…”

    Thank you Brett…just over the years of exploring astrology a bit. Hope you clicked on the links, esp the Cardinal Climax one because there is more detail about what that is all about. It makes the whole Mayan Calendar 2012 thing seem a bit less daunting–knowing that as a species we can learn to be in proper alignment for the coming changes….
