September 2012 T Square: Time to Shift

by Madeline Gerwick

Madeline Gerwick AstrologerHeads up everyone! If you're into the status quo, then it’s time to buckle up! If you want a lot of changes, then you're in the right place. Tomorrow we have our Fall Equinox and this one is a doozy. That’s a technical term, of course. It means we have lots of action and plenty of likely changes afoot. The Fall Equinox is when the Sun enters the sign of Libra and this is commonly known as the first day of autumn. This year it occurs at 7:50 AM PST on September 22nd. The chart for this moment gives us an excellent look at the energies for the entire fall, and they’ll unfold throughout the coming 3 months. The chart I’m using applies to the entire USA.  

This looks like a highly volatile season. Entrenched, explosive energies are prominent during this fall quarter. This is shown by the cycles of Mars conjunct the ASC and sesquiquadrate Uranus. These energies can be very warlike. They can also be used to create breakthroughs, but they may not do so until they explode. Be watchful for safety concerns and take immediate action to correct them if you find them. 
Note that on a personal level, we may all need more physical exercise than usual to deal with excess energies that are bombarding us from the Sun and the Galactic Center. If we don’t get this, we may be the ones who are exploding. 

The stock market looks very erratic, with plenty of potential for suddenly dropping. This is related to the cycles of Uranus square Pluto, Sun and Mercury opposite Uranus and square Pluto, plus Mars sesquiquadrate Uranus. Part of this could be related to the Presidential Election, but from a cycles point-of-view, a drop in the markets is likely even without an election. There are some positive cycles in the markets as well. Bright spots could include oil, natural gas, shipping, pharmaceuticals, movies, art, and shoes. There’s also a little boost for retailers and children’s or recreational products. 
Congress and the President appear to be in a big mess! This is likely due to the fact that it’s a lame-duck Congress and it has a major amount of work to do before it ends for the holidays. This includes raising the debt ceiling, passing a new budget or triggering the $1.2 trillion cut across the board. Plus there’s the increased taxes that are supposed to kick in starting January 1st, unless Congress changes that. All of that looks very challenging in this chart.

September 2012 T-Square: Sun Uranus & Pluto

Beginning September 22nd, as the Sun moves into the sign of Libra, the cycles of Sun opposite Uranus and square Pluto come into range. This combination of cycles could be associated with any of the following eight issues:

  1. We could see major political power issues. These are likely to be associated with Congress, our upcoming fiscal cliff, and the upcoming Presidential election.
  2. We could also have unexpected electrical power losses, similar to or worse than the ones we had at the end of June in the eastern portion of the States. Those occurred shortly after we had the first peak of Uranus square Pluto and we’ve just had the second peak of those energies. These power outages could be due to storms or to major solar flares. So be prepared for power disruptions. 
  3. We could experience Earth changes of any type including earthquakes, volcanoes, major fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, etc.
  4. We could have unexpected changes in leaders or celebrities, such as resignations, ousters, illnesses, scandals, or deaths.
  5. Revolutionary protests are more likely. Did you see that the Chicago School Teachers went on strike? That’s a good example. These are likely to be in response to leaders who have overstepped their appropriate use of power.
  6. New inventions that change the game are likely to show upThis is most likely to occur first in the field of energy, but there are other possibilities in physics, biology, and genetics as well. Keep your eyes open for revolutionary ideas, including in books, retail, health care and computers.Many breakthroughs are likely this entire fall season.  
  7. Uranus represents those who are different from us. That includes, foreigners, radicals and yes, even aliens or our galactic family. So here we are being asked to take back our personal power and stop waiting for authorities to do this job, since they’ve been lying about it for many years. This applies to many areas of life, but take extraterrestrials for example. We’re now being asked to disclose the truth to each other that we know from our personal experience or from the evidence we’ve seen.
  8. If you’ve watched the news at all, you know there have been massive protests in China over Japan buying some islands that both countries claim. Plus perhaps you heard that India is having massive protests over a rise in gasoline prices? Other countries around the world are having protests for different reasons. This is one of the ways Uranus square Pluto expresses itself and we’re likely to see more of this occurring all over the world.

Now these major cycles, with the Sun square Pluto and opposite Uranus, peak on September 29th and stay in range through October 6th. However, notice that the main culprit, Uranus square Pluto peaked on September 19th and it will stay in range through March 2019. Think you’re going to get through this nearly 7-year period without changing? If so, you better think again! We’re all being forced to change if we won’t do it willingly. Plus the next three years will be as intense, or more so, than this one.

So if you have old patterns that are holding you back, now is the time to let go of them. It’s all about shifting. And remember, you can only shift for YOU, never for others.
