The straight A student who dropped out of university

Billy Willson received a 4.0 grade point average, the equivalent to straight A's, for his first semester at Kansas State University. He decided that it would also be his last.
In a strongly worded Facebook post, Willson uploaded a photograph of himself standing outside the university's sign, holding his middle finger up to it. In the accompanying text he wrote:
"YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED. You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will see it some day," he wrote.
"You are being put thousands into debt to learn things you will never even use. Wasting 4 years of your life to be stuck at a paycheck that grows slower than the rate of inflation. Paying $200 for a $6 textbook."  Jan 6

The news comes at the First Quarter Moon of  Jan.5. A chart for the Moon phase at Manhattan, Kansas, the location of the University campus is shown here. We notice that the Sun with Pluto is placed in the 9th house which is connected to universities and higher learning as well as our belief system. The Moon with Uranus is in the 12th house linked to bondage or in its higher aspect liberation…in this case from a limited belief system (9th house).

Beliefs are formulated from past experience. When we adhere to beliefs as facts rather than use them as steppingstones we place limits upon ourselves that keep us from becoming something greater than we can currently conceive.

Moreover, the First Quarter Moon is conjunct the star Alpheratz, alpha (α) Andromeda in the Chained Woman's head.The story of Andromeda symbolizes  our need to break free from the human mold, from the genetic, cultural, and personal conditioning of our lives. The star  Alpheratz represents the stage of becoming  free from the human psycho-emotional drama, or accepting a sentence of bondage not rightfully ours.
