The Mars-Uranus square finally becomes exact at 7:00 PM, EST, September 18. This will be the peak of this volatile energy, that began last week as Venus, Mars and Uranus formed a t-square, or major clash in the sky. This is the third and final pass of this volatile transit this year.
So, far we have seen a hurricane hit the US East coast, and Typhoon Manghut has created major disaster in Hong Kong and China. It will be days before we know the final damage with any of these storms.
A significant gas line explosion occurred in the Boston, Ma area forcing hundreds to flee their homes, and the damage here is not all known at this time, either.
US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will face his accuser on sexual assault charges in a public hearing September 24, reminiscent of the Anita Hill hearings in 1991. These are a few of the unexpected and explosive incidents we have seen since this powerful transit began, not to mention the unexpected and changeable situations that have occurred in our personal lives.
You will feel this transit more if you have fixed planets (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius at 1-2 degrees in your personal chart.
While the peak of this transit occurs September 18, this energy will continue to be with us through September although events may not be quite as dramatic.
If you have a fixed planet at the above degree, as Mars continues to move forward things should begin to lighten up, but you also have a Uranus transit.
Uranus is in Taurus and will clash with fixed planets at 0-2 degrees between now and early November. Uranus is the harbinger of change, often unexpected, freedom, and it shakes things up, in often unexpected ways. Many people seek freedom from something when Uranus enters their chart, or others around them seek freedom or unexpected change.
Uranus will remain at 1-0 degrees until early November when it will re-enter Aries one last time. Next spring it will move back into Taurus for the next 7 years.
