Grand Cross
A pattern formed by the planets when in Aspect. The Grand Cross happens when two planets are in opposition and two other planets in opposition cross them at 90-degree angles. Usually will occur within the same quality; Cardinal, Fixed or Mutable. Opinions differ as to whether it should be interpreted as an exceptional cosmic cross, and thus dynamic, energetic, and extroverted, or as "too much of a good thing", and tending toward diffusion. Astrologers consider this configuration to increase the strength of all four bodies.

Those most used in Astrology are the Horizon, the Equator and the Ecliptic. A LESSER CIRCLE does not pass through the centre of the earth but can be at any point. Lesser Circles define the TROPICS. On a sphere, meridians of longitude are great circles. The following are examples of great circles on the celestial sphere: Meridian Prime Vertical Celestial Equator.
