Tucked inside the soul is the power to change yourself in a way that changes the world. This is the great mission of our time, because, let’s face it — we all know that this world is in need of great change. That massive project becomes less generic and more intimate  when you bring it down to the places you yourself need to change. It comes down to a decision you make to stop stopping yourself. Modern culture exerts a constant subliminal pressure to stop yourself from being the outrageous force of love and ecstasy that you truly are.   Once you stop stopping yourself that inner grow light radiates enough power to light the universe, like a candle in the dark.

On April 21st the fifth Uranus-Pluto Square occurs out of seven such squares between June, 2012 and March, 2015. The previous square in November, 2013 ushered in a five-month period of healing, in which illnesses and plagues had to be exposed for purposes of healing. If you’re caught in old unresolved issues just remember there’s a therapeutic edge to be gleaned here, a necessary purging to get old business out of the way so you can gallop forward in the Spring of the Horse.

The Uranus-Pluto square on April 21 ushers in an eight-month period of Claiming Your True Power, and this is the key period in the three-year process of these seven squares. This period dates back to 1966 when these two outer planets first came together in conjunction during the year that jump-started the 1960s Revolution in Consciousness. The massive worldwide energies of change inaugurated then have taken 48 years to settle down and become a new root system. Change that erupted through world culture in the 60s was partially successful and partially denied by counter-revolutionary forces.

The part that was denied didn’t evaporate but sank down into collective consciousness where it’s been brewing and bubbling ever since, awaiting the right conditions to rise up again. Because the political system of our time has become delusionary — a government of dunces — we can’t expect change to come from the top down but from the bottom up.

The seed of consciousness that was planted when Uranus conjoined Pluto has now reached its deepest root, and the three-year period from 2012 to 2015, when these seven squares occur, casts a cosmic grow-light on that root to stimulate the return of love and cosmic consciousness real enough to get things moving again. Yes, many bright dreams of love and peace faltered during the post-60s undertow, and colossal dysfunction has taken their place. But deep down in the human spirit, the spirit of our times is once again collecting its deeper force to source widespread change. The subterranean growth that has been brewing for forty-eight years is about to erupt.

Unlike the hyper-polarization of the 60s when it was much easier to tell right from wrong, Us against Them, Freaks versus Straights, Hawks against Doves, the black-and-whiteness of that earlier time has evolved into a multi-hued spectrum of the present day, in which it’s hard to find true power.

What is true power?

It’s the power of the soul light within you to shine like a laser beam into the hyper-complexities of our time and illuminate a genuine path forward. True power takes nothing but gives everything. True power is uninterested in ego, but locks into a universal source of generosity and well-being, and shines like the sun. Uranus is revolution and Pluto is hell, and when that light shines you’ll overthrow the particular personal and collective hells of our time. When you link in with this inner spring a revitalization occurs, and a clearing of the mind. Yes, a lot of things in our world are screwed up. Yes, there’s no guarantee of the future. And if you let those pressures ignite a deep flame of consecrated will within, you’ll burn up illusion and light the world aflame with news of change. You’ll gain or regain a creative flow that many of us dwelt in the midst of in childhood, and be filled to bursting with the urge for transformation.

One difference between our time and the 60s Revolution in Consciousness is that the dominant news and information outlets have become much more corrupt. So the view presented to mass consciousness is highly distorted, which means you have to tune into the drumbeat of the soul to get your news and information. You have to learn to believe the truth of what your heart tells you rather than the image projected by mass media.

With the advent of this fifth and most powerful square, it’s time to unplug your life force from the Machine, find out what you’re made of and harness your soul to the engine of change.
