"The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first."
-- Jim Morrison
On November 1, Uranus-square-Pluto indicates the awakening of our consciousness. The planets are hell bent on waking us up in 2013 -- few would argue with that. You'd have to be living under a rock if you think life is just ticking along like status quo.
This particular exact Uranus-Pluto square is all about opening the heart chakra, so expect something dramatic to burst you wide open. Uranus in Aries is pushing for freedom of authentic individual expression and the truth of the "I am" principle.
Pluto in Capricorn is demanding the highest level of integrity. If what you say and what you value do not match your actions, you'll feel it right in the center of your chest now. This is the kind of anxiety-provoking transit that does not let you rest if you're not at peace with your true self.
Get clear and get honest -- or go home. The planets are not letting you off the hook with this one. There is that old Egyptian myth of Maat determining at the end of life if one's heart is lighter than a feather as the final soul test.
We may be feeling this evaluation now as life brings us many tests that could either make our hearts lighter or heavier depending on how we choose to respond. It seems the more we are true to ourselves and avoid any form of abusing power or being abused, we will remain light and in truth. The choice is ours.
