Around 7 PM Eastern US time tonight Uranus squares Pluto, challenging you to claim the life you choose. This has been a long time coming, and dates back to the 1960s Revolution when we awakened to the fact that there's a whole other world here waiting for us to claim it. That unfinished project, powerfully challenged by the square, is intensifying many people's lives on both a physical basis, like the tornadoes slamming the Midwest, and an inner basis, as many of us are being put through the wringer.
The paradox of awakening is that when greater truth takes root; that is, when it becomes more than some interesting idea you've heard a hundred times before, and its deeper meaning bursts open in some dark corner of your soul, not all of you instantly goes along with the revelation.
