"Coinciding with this celestial event (a day before) we have a Full Moon at the final degree of Sagittarius square to Chiron.
"He said at the time Mercury would activate a 'mutable grand cross between Saturn, Jupiter and a stationed retrograde Neptune'.
He said: "To Say that this is a stable time to be awake and aware would be a lie.
"The transitioning occurring now is like a giant wave crashing onto the shore of our own perspectives and beliefs, scattering debris everywhere, and in so doing also ripping a hole through the veil; Exposing a reality we never knew existed underneath."
In a rambling 40-minute video, Mr Halloran said: "We are in the closing square. This is when this s***t starts to fall apart.
"This is what is may going on with this full moon in Sagittarius, the ripping away of veils "This is a critical time energetically. This is a time when people go off the deep end, people lose control." More, read here.
