I had a terrific time getting out of the relationship with the composite grand cross which was unusual because I am as slippery as they come. I am like Houdini with a jet ski waiting when it comes to leaving a relationship but I could not find a way out of that one to save my life, up until the time I did. I don’t know what to say besides I’ve been happy since and I think I’ve learned my lesson.
Because take a look at the composite of my current relationship. (below) See how pretty that is? See all that GREEEEEN? Those are easy aspects. And you know what? I can’t get out of this relationship either.
“Why would you want out?” the other astrologer asked.
Well, I wouldn’t. I am happy in the relationship but that doesn’t mean I don’t have freedom urges. It doesn’t mean I don’t notice when I am caught in something, even when it’s good. This is just my nature. The point is a composite chart with the Grand Cross indicates a situation that is very hard to get out of or escape and you can see why. You can see it visually, you don’t even need to know astrology.
The chart is a map and in both these cases, you can see it is a closed system. These configurations…the Grand Cross (red square shape for the newbies) in the one chart is closed system and once you get in one, it’s like riding the Scrambler.
The Scrambler jerks you, then jerks you, then jerks you, then jerks you. You go ’round and ’round then ’round, jerk, jerk, jerk at the angles. And this is fun when you’re 16. This might be fun when you’re 21 but when you get a little older and you maybe want to vomit less, you start to re-think this stuff.
Regarding the other chart, the Grand Trine (green triangle) is also closed, so is the Mystic Rectangle (rectangle shape).
The Kite (looks like a kite) is also closed as well and has the same effect. Wherever you go there is no door so when you’re in it, you’re in it, you just don’t get beat up the way you do with the hard composite.
So this is my experience. And these are extreme examples but that’s good because they manifest in ways that cannot be missed or misinterpreted.
Have you ever been “stuck” in a relationship? Are you stuck now? How does it feel to you?
I imagine people less commitment-phobic than I am might take great comfort in these type situations, is it true? Help me with my research.
