I received the following query from a client and blog reader. I thought it might be helpful to share it:
Q: Not sure if I’m supposed to be “bothering” you with emails, etc. so please let me know either way! But I wanted to ask what’s “going on” these days….it seems like everyone is running into obstacles left and right - emotional overloads, work issues, technology, etc. In my layman’s terms: What’s banging around up in the heavens?
A: There are no "big" exact alignments right now, (that would be outer planet to outer planet). The closest would be on 10/3 when Mars will Square Jupiter, which is certainly strong. But the Sun is coming into Libra on September 23, (that is the Fall equinox), and will line up with Uranus and then with Pluto between 9/25 to 9/28, (with a New Moon on the 27th as well). That means they all are forming what is called a "T-Square", a very strong and stressful configuration.
More importantly, this serial alignment is "activating" the Uranus/Pluto square which is "The BIG" alignment for 2012-2015. So in that sense it is giving us a preview of that historic eruption of energies, energies we are already feeling and will be dealing with for some time to come, (and I will be repeatedly writing and talking about).
There is much to say about this historic event, but simply put it is calling for a new adjustment/alignment between Individuality/Freedom and Order/Responsibility. The last major alignment they had, the Conjunction, was the major one of the 1960's...remember the 60's? Then you get the idea...but this time it is MORE intense because it is a square!
Probably it is this that you and others are feeling, the coming of that T-Square which triggers the Uranus/Pluto square.
Q: So basically the activation of the Uranus/Pluto square will also be felt at a personal level; that is not just on the economic and political fronts? I think the general feeling I have and others in my life is that we are NOT in control.
A: Well, of course, we all have limited control, always. It is just that the order of things, the reality we have been moving through and counting on continuing, (though it was always changing), is accelerating its pace of change now. The paradigm is shifting and a new world is being born out of the ashes of the old...but as it does many things become uncertain.
Which is why we need so much to be reminded now of the eternal truths. It is those truths that have always guided us back upon the middle path, the noble path of spiritual truth. Hence my small contribution as to why I started the blog now...because there is so much need now for calm reassurance and reminders as to what is most important...
Q: Thank you Bill, and yes, that is exactly what I find in your blog, the calm reassurance and reminder of what is important!
