Time to Pause and Astrology Forecast August 17-23

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving down into the last quarter of the lunar cycle this week, and there are no “important” or very intense planetary movements right now.  Maybe we can take a break from so many great waves of change, and settle down a bit.

We are also in the last few days of Leo time of year before we enter the transition month between summer and autumn.   That transition begins later this week as the Sun moves into Virgo on Saturday the 23rd at 12:46 AM Eastern USA Time.

So if you have not gotten too beaten up by all the intensity from early this year through last week, perhaps you can find some time for fun this week.

Or maybe you will need the time to process all that has happened, to get deeper into your body and soul and do some healing.  Perhaps you will need this down time to make some completions, find some resolution, get a better understanding of all that has erupted in your life this year.

This year is an important year of transformation for our human species.  We are in a most powerful chapter of the transition between ages.   We are being “asked” to transform our lives and consciousness in alignment with the Age we are moving into.

To evolve one does not have to be “mean and lean”, does not necessarily mean being the strongest or the most intelligent.  Survival of the fittest is mostly about adaptability to change.

And right now adaptability is mostly about changing one’s consciousness to be in alignment with what the Age of Aquarius is demanding.  Those who still believe that the ones who have the most power or the most money or the most popularity will be the survivors – are off track as that kind will populate the zoos or be the dinosaurs of our future.

Those who believe in Love, who know we are all members of the same family, who respect those who are different from them,  who cherish the Earth, who learn to have empathy for others,  who know all in life is connected and meaningful, will evolve into our new world.  Jesus is said to have spoken that the “meek share inherit the Earth”.  Those who have peace in their hearts will help our Earth and our human family to heal and transform.

I know when you look around now at all the events in the world, it can be so frightening and tempt one to live in fear and become cynical.

Last week we had a well known member of our human family, one who was famous and rich hang himself- Robin Williams.

Buying into the cultural values and being successful on those terms does not make one happy or help one to better survive in the bigger picture.

What one develops in one’s heart and soul, in one’s “inner kingdom”, is where the key to being satisfied and evolving lies.

If you are fearful, depressed, self loathing, untrusting, then you will find misery and you will not truly grow and evolve on a deeper level.  This does not mean you should judge or blame yourself or others for being in that sad state. But you do need to take responsibility for your inner health.

And it does mean that going within and finding your true self, finding inner peace, finding love and truth, will help you most on your life journey.

This does not mean that money or success or popularity are bad, and in fact they can make life easier and more enjoyable.

But without the inner values, those things will be empty and you may never feel you have enough of them.

And without the intention for your  consciousness evolving now, beyond what the conventional world has programmed you to believe and be, you will not be open to the signs that show you your true path of soul evolution.

If you are becoming who others want you to be, you are losing your Self and your health and moving off your soul’s path.

One of the benefits of these transformational times is that the parts of your life that are inauthentic are revealed to you when things break down, so you can see the light again and change direction.

Powerfully transformative Uranus and Pluto will continue making exact square to one another, which has been happening since 2012, through Spring 2015- and will continue to bring transformational energy even after that.

The last time Uranus and Pluto made major exact aspect to one another was in 1965-66 when they were conjunct.  This brought on the ’60s revolution, but of course that revolution stretched into the ’70s.

The next exact square between Uranus and Pluto is in December this year 2014.  And that will be at the end of the autumn, finishing off another Eclipse Season, this time Autumn Eclipse Season 2014. 

The beginning waves of this Eclipse Season will be felt in mid September and the first actual eclipse will be on October 8, a Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries. That will be followed by a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 23.

Uranus and Pluto will be making a Cardinal T-square with  that Aries Lunar Eclipse, a formation almost as powerful as a Grand Cross.

But for now as we enter the last quarter Moon in Taurus this Sunday the 17th, do your best to chill and recharge your heart “batteries”.

Late Sunday/early Monday Jupiter conjuncts Venus in Leo, to bring more joy and hope to you along with the light and airy Moon in Gemini at that time.

Later in the week, after the Moon goes into feeling oriented Cancer from Wednesday through most of Friday, there are relatively minor aspects involving Uranus, Pluto, and Mars in Scorpio.  That should bring more intensity, but nothing to shake you up too much.

See you next week,

Leo

Not Fearing Fear Itself and Astrology Forecast August 10-16

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 9, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

This last week, with an emphasis on Scorpio and Leo energies, was very intense.   An important message to be taken from those energies is to live in the moment in your heart and with your passion.

Scorpio and Leo will continue to be important energies this coming week, as Venus will join the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter in Leo, while Mars and Saturn continue in Scorpio.

Venus leaves safe and nurturing Cancer for creative, playful, and ostentatious Leo this Tuesday August 12.  Your heart will seek to open more and to express itself more spontaneously.  Relationship orientation will want to be leaving co-dependent ways and to experience more genuine expressions of open hearted love.

Before Venus enters Leo on Tuesday, there is a Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius on Sunday August 10. This will bring a culmination or climax or perhaps some resolution to what was begun at the Leo New Moon on July 26.  As we have stated before that New Moon initiated a new chapter in our lives after the Cardinal Cross shakeups.

Now at this Full Moon we can intend to gain more perspective and understanding of that new chapter and hopefully more acceptance of it.

The roar of creative expression for living an authentic life (Leo) meets the social needs of the world around us at this Full Moon in Aquarius.   Can we take our true self into the world and fit in, or do we need to adjust our needs or at least our presentation in order to relate with others.

This Full Moon, which is at 2:09 PM PM EDT Sunday August 10, seeks to balance our self focused inclinations with our social consciousness.  So we may also be more motivated to find and express what we idealistically seek for the world we live in.

On Thursday Jupiter will make aspect to Neptune, so surrounding this time we have greater opportunity to open to spirit and soul, to more magic and synchronicity, to deeper and higher levels of consciousness.

On Friday Mars in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.  Surrounding this day the emotional intensity level may increase even more and world conflicts may get more intense as well.

We have all entered a new chapter in our human lives on Planet Earth since the important Cardinal Grand Cross and Eclipse season earlier this year.    Our consciousness is shifting and changing this year in big ways.

Transformation of consciousness is the most important part of the foundation we are building now to support our entry into the Age of Aquarius.   Uranus square Pluto is the main motivator to change our consciousness now; and as those two powerfully transformational energies were part of the Cardinal Grand Cross this spring 2014, we are experiencing huge waves of revolutionary and evolutionary instigation.

In the mid ’60s Uranus was conjunct Pluto, and of course that was symbolic of the huge tides of change just beginning then for the ’60s and ’70s revolution and evolution.

Civil rights issues dominated that time period and African Americans and women were screaming for liberation from an often controlling and demeaning society.   A spotlight was shone on a society that programmed its citizens into robotic allegiance to its dictates.  Wars and global capitalism were challenged and protests and civil disturbances broke out as efforts to change the world.  There were movements to break down old gender roles and to liberate us from emotional and sexual repression.

In those processes of transformation, marijuana was an important way for many to break out of consciousness boxes, to break away from stuck mind and heart chains, and to breathe the fresh air of new ways of thinking and feeling.  Psychedelics were also part of that process of breaking down old ways and opening up to new ones.

Now we have again faced civil rights issues, and minds have been opening for the plights and rights for gays and lesbians over the last few years .  We are again wanting to break away from the controls of the programming from society, from unjust and horrible wars, from a Global Corporate and Governmental Dominance that is making our human experience more toxic than ever.  And now marijuana is legal in some states and will probably in time become legal most everywhere.

This is Uranus and Pluto roaring once again and promising to bring even greater tides of change than the ’60s and ’70s.

Back in the ’60s people sang and celebrated the “Dawning of the Age of Aquarius”, and now it is much closer to our collective doorstep.   The roar of its power is permeating our collective consciousness, our world events, and our personal lives.

But now the forces of repression are stronger than before. Back then the Vietnam War was ended and the Nixon presidency came down, in large part because of the power of the people who were under the influence of Uranus/Pluto and waves of transformational energies from the approaching Age of Aquarius.

The so-called Military Industrial Complex is much more powerful than before and now so many of the young people in the USA (who were so instrumental in the ’60s changes) are now seemingly dozing to the lull of computer sights and sounds.

But nevertheless we are all being awakened now and sometimes that awakening is taking the form of world or personal events that shake us up so we will have a deeper look at our lives.

On the world stage we see the massacre of innocent civilians in Gaza on our TV screens, we see more needless world conflicts and fights for land and resources and power, we witness Corporate and Government controls taking away our freedoms, we see institutions that can no longer be trusted to serve our best interests.

Monsanto has such control of the food industry and our elected officials as they deny us even simple labeling of food products so we can know what we are eating.  The NSA spies on Americans and who knows how much of our information is available through the internet.

Our elected officials are bought out by all sorts of monied interests, apparently also true now of the Judicial system and highest courts who now have decided that Corporations are people. And of course Israel has a powerful influence over our foreign policy decisions.

The turmoil that is here now in world events and in our personal lives is meant to be a catalyst for change again, as they were back in the ’60s and ’70s.

But now we are closer to the true dawning of a new age, and it will take even more powers of transformation to assist us in our evolution.

So if at times now you are feeling like you are going crazy or you are overwhelmed by the emotions flooding you and events that seemingly have no solution; trust the process operating deep under the surface.    Try to open your mind to new ways of looking at situations, people and yourself; learn to not judge so quickly; do your best to summon up empathy and to look at both sides of an issue.  And do your best to surrender your ego now to your authentic soul self, the part of you that holds the wisdom you now need.

Do your best not to freak out at what is happening in the world or in your personal life.  Trust the Universe and its inexorable movement into the Age of Aquarius. Trust your self to know what to do and when, to be guided to people and situations that are just right for you at just the right time.  Stay out of debilitating fear or you will lose your way.   As FDR so famously said, “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself”.

There is an Autumn Eclipse Season beginning in September, before the first of two eclipses on October 8. We will write more about that in later installments of Perspectives from the Sky.

See you next week,

Leo

Following Our Better Angels and Astrology Forecast August 3-9

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on August 2, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The past week after the New Moon in Leo and Mars going into Scorpio, we entered a new zone for our human lives on Earth.

There is no turning back, as all the roads that would lead to a continuation of the old stories and old patterns have been closed for soul travelers.

You can still try but you will only become locked up into the Groundhog Day maze of Deja Vous over and over again and again.

The Cardinal Grand Cross Eclipse Season from earlier this year shook up our lives and awakened us to the new journey, to a new season or chapter of our lives.

In the process, we have felt the losses and some were quite painful.   There was and still is grief for what we left and let go.

But now it is time to move forward without looking for a way back.   This coming week, as we are in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun last week at the Leo New Moon; we keep our eyes ahead.

This coming week will be dominated by Leo and Scorpio energies.  That means it is important now to get more firmly connected to your passion and your purpose, to your heart’s desires and your creative spark.

If you are over analyzing and trying to desperately figure out what to do or what direction to move in, then your ego is in control of your life.

With Leo and Scorpio dominating our energy field this week, it is best to “follow your gut” and instincts (Scorpio) and follow your heart and creative spontaneity (Leo).

If your mind tries to keep control and brings a lot of fear with it, you will be tempted to stop trusting the path you have chosen and to want to retreat.

Believe me there is no where back you can go now.   It is best to follow your heart, intuition and instincts to keep you on track.  That does not mean you should be impulsive and “throw all caution to the wind”, as that would be a way to avoid being present.

Your mind can now be a valued advisor as it gives up its need to be your boss, letting you now know if your heart or intuition is a bit off, but it should not be allowed to make fear your guiding hand.

Your heart and soul now will show you the connections, will light your path, as they show you the synchronicities, signs, and symbols, the inspirations, that keep you on track.

Stay away or limit your interaction with people who will have you doubt your own wisdom and doubt the path you have chosen.   Even people you may consider intelligent can still be limited by a closed mind that has not been awakened to the new world.

With Leo and Scorpio prevailing energies this week, open up your creative channels of expression.   Write, paint, draw, dance, sing, do anything that opens you to your deeper self, its voice and its expression.

As you get more in touch with your passion and authenticity now, you will also see that there is a lot of magic all around, lots of winks from the Universe letting you know you are connected and aligned.

Being connected and aligned to the “silent voice” inside you, brings you to everything you need.   Being disconnected to that voice and to your heart and soul brings you back to a chattering and fearful mind, one that will sabotage your natural evolution now.

So finish off your job of cutting loose beliefs, mindsets, patterns, people, jobs, or places that hold you back in fear, that make you feel worthless or inconsequential, that tell you are “out of touch with reality”.

Do you ever feel you are a sane person in an insane and dysfunctional world?  The old “reality” is keeping many members of our human family chained to ways of being that are destructive. Us versus Them mentality is rearing its ugly head in big ways now.  It is killing off many innocent human beings in the Middle East and elsewhere.

But if you attach yourself to those dramas in ways that make you more hateful, more fearful, more despondent and hopeless, then you need to let the attachment go and realize that there is a greater meaning to it all.

Nature brings storms and calamities all the time to cleanse our world and bring rebirths.   And as painful as it is to see such horrible suffering and pain in our fellow human being as these wars are bringing; we can still know that rebirth will come from the ashes of that old world. More and more people are being awakened to the knowledge that these old ways of destroying “the hated enemy” are being perpetrated by the dinosaurs of our future world.

I see awakened people all the time.  They know they cannot save the world, but at least they are seeing the truth of how the old attitudes and beliefs are destroying us. They are taking the journey of healing and transformation that is a prerequisite for our evolution into the Age of Aquarius.

As more and more of us evolve, as more and more of us speak up with new voices, as more and more of us let love and truth be our guiding lights, and trust that we live in a meaningful Universe, we lead the way for our future generations.

The carnage in the world now need not discourage us, but instead should remind us of how important it is now to help heal and transform ourselves for our new world.

How you were yesterday at your worst, or how our world was yesterday at its worst, do not determine who we are today nor what the future will be.  We have the ability to choose to live our lives according to our “better angels” today and be enveloped by the light of the Age of Aquarius now.

See you next week,

Leo

Dawn’s Early Light and Astrology Forecast July 27- August 2.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 26, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are truly moving forward now into a New Chapter and Season of our lives on Planet Earth.  Yesterday Friday July 25 Mars went into focused and intense Scorpio, and the New Moon conjunct expansive Jupiter is today July 26 at 6:42 PM EDT.  This new season at the New Moon has begun after the Cardinal Grand Cross this last spring and thus represents a powerful new beginning.

Maybe for some loose ends still need to be tied and a bit more clarity needs to form, but we have each hopefully jumped on the moving train and are ready to go.

The only thing you need to be sure of now is what you believe.  Do you at the core of your being believe we live in a connected and meaningful Universe?  Or have you bought into the fear based programming of the world?

What you now attract to your self is very dependent on that belief system.   Will you attract the “better angels” inside your self and in the Universe, or will you attract the ones that will swallow you up into more hellish places in your mind and heart?

Are the circumstances that unfolded during this past Spring Eclipse Season with the Cardinal Cross meaningful and meant to usher in a new Chapter of your life; or were those events random bad luck or good luck?  It is your choice.

Even if the those events were painful and difficult, they still happened for a reason, were a learning experience or a motivation to accept the turning pages into a New Chapter of your life.  Or do you see it differently, through eyes of more “glass half empty” focus?

We cannot stop the changing tides of life, but we can better adapt and evolve within those changes if we believe our lives are sacred and meaningful.   This is not necessarily about believing in “God”, but more about believing in spirit and soul and believing that we humans are capable of evolving into beings who can have love and truth as our guiding lights.

This is absolutely necessary now. Take a look at our world now.  The old world is beginning to come apart.  We are being brought to “judgment days” inside ourselves.

Do we see the unravelling, which has much violence in its process, as a sign we are all going down into the abyss together?  Or do we see this as part of the transformation into an Aquarian Age, part of the process of releasing old programs and beliefs that can not come with us if we are to truly evolve and survive?

What is happening now in Gaza is a terrible tragedy.  These bombings are indiscriminate and reflective of a lack of concern for the people there. As of this writing over 1000 people have died in Gaza as a result of these attacks, the vast majority civilians, and many children.

This is part of the old paradigm of only caring about “me and mine”, “us versus them” mentality, needs for superiority and inferiority, and needing enemies to fear and hate.

The Middle East, a place of the original human civilizations and organized religions, reflects our roots which have decayed.   Now we need a deep transformation, from the core of our beings, so we can build an Age of Aquarius from the ashes of that old world and paradigm.

You can expect more turmoil in the Middle East and in Ukraine/Russia and elsewhere, as old borders from a contrived world of nations break down. The Old Order is no longer viable.

A new world, an Age of Aquarius is within our grasp if we get to a consciousness that believes we are equal in value, and that a world of Diversity in Unity is possible, a world where love and truth are our guiding lights.

In your own world do your best to balance an allowing of the change, with a holding onto some security and stability.

And now, with the New Moon in Leo and Mars moving into Scorpio, there is a  breaking open of that which was still stuck, a release of the old, and a burst of energy giving movement to go forward.  In addition, Venus will trigger the Uranus/Pluto square and the old Cardinal Grand Cross this coming week, to add to the intensity and power of transformation.

Much of this energy will be passionate and potentially quite creative too. It is best now not to try too hard to control or repress the natural movement inside and around you.

Find the proper boundaries or limits so you are not flooded with emotion or anxiety, but do nonetheless allow nature to take its course.

This is only the beginning of chaotic turmoil in the greater world, it will continue to intensify.   It will affect all corners of our Earthly world.  The way we have been programmed to believe, the world we have been conditioned to find stability within, will be entering our rear view mirror.

We are being awakened to the truth and to new ways of thinking, being, and feeling.   We are being dis-illusioned from the government, media, and corporate programming of who are the “good guys” and who are the “bad guys”. Wake up and realize the so-called bad guys see the supposed good guys as their bad guys.   It is all made up as an excuse to fight against those who seemingly threaten our way of life.   We must end this old paradigm.

As we awaken out of our slumber, we drop into a deeper knowing that we are all one human family in an Age of Aquarius.

Resist the urge to hate Putin or hate Islamists or anyone else, as our media and corporate/government powers from an old age try to convince us.

Resist also your desire to hate your ex-husband or boss or father or whomever.   Their presence in your life is as a teacher of something you need to learn or experience.

And all of us are moving back “home”  inside ourselves, some faster than others, but all wanting to know we are safe in the arms of a loving Universe.

See you next week,

Leo

Hand of Time Shows it is Time for a New Chapter in Our Lives and Astrology Forecast July 20-26

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 19, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Hand of Time is ready to start ticking again as Saturn is stationing ready to go Direct this Sunday July 20.

We let you know last week that in the days surrounding this event, world events that feel like fate would erupt in our world.

Saturn Direct is more important than it usually is because it follows the very powerful Cardinal Grand Cross that happened during Spring Eclipse Season 2014.

Hand Of Time Saturn goes Direct and we all enter a very important new chapter or season of our lives on Planet Earth.

Two very important events that affect lives all over the Earth happened as Saturn was about to go Direct:  A Malaysian passenger plane was shot down late this last week over Ukraine;  and Israel  seriously intensified its war with Hamas and the Palestinians by pushing its ground forces into Gaza.

Already a few hundred Palestinians have been killed (mostly civilians) by air bombings over Gaza.   Hamas and other groups have also been sending rockets into Israel, but only killing one Israeli in the process.  The carnage in Gaza is horrendous.

Going back into the Eclipse Season as the Cardinal Cross was formed,   the top world news stories then were:  A Malaysian airliner disappeared, which has still not been found;  Ukraine blew up as it began to split between western interests and Russian interests.;  John Kerry made a concerted effort to bring peace to Israel and the Palestinians; the Islamic State made great advances in Syria and Iraq.

Now as Saturn goes Direct and the Hand of Time begins to move forward,  two very important and seemingly fated events happen that are very connected to those world events and the Cardinal Grand Cross.

Most strangely that the incredible disappearance of the Malaysian plane in the Spring, now becomes a shot down Malaysian plane over Ukraine, bringing those two events from Spring Eclipse Season together in a strange way.

When we also add the Isis takeover of Iraq, which happened while the Cross was still in effect, with the events in Ukraine and Israel/Palestine; we see themes that are forming which are aligned with the transition between Ages.

As we let you know in previous writings, Chaos versus Order will be a pervading theme during this transition, as borders and rules of the Old World are breaking down and forceful attempts to keep the old security systems are countering that movement.

Interestingly, as Saturn has been stationing to go Direct on July 20, at the same time Uranus has been stationing to go retrograde and will turn Retrograde on July 21.  Planets that station to change directions, whether to Direct or Retrograde, have their energy permeating the frequencies of our consciousness and world.

Saturn is security and control; Uranus is breaking out of stuck forms and often bringing chaos as a result. Not only are those two planets both changing directions at the same time; they also are making aspect to one another.  They are making a quincunx or 150 degree aspect to one another.  Saturn is going Direct at 16+ degrees of Scorpio while Uranus is going Retrograde at 16+ degrees of Aries.

As the turf in the Middle East is being transformed, the lives of many peoples all over the world are affected because so many countries are invested in the resources and power structures there.

In Ukraine, NATO nations have been trying to be the main influence there, which used to be a part of the Soviet Union and has many residents with Russian heritage. So Russia has also been fighting for influence.  The flight that was shot down over Ukraine has passengers from all over the world.

So you can see that these events are affecting peoples all over the world.  It is likely that the “fated” events this past week are the catalysts for great change in the Middle East and Ukraine.  And like dominoes falling, the whole world will be transformed as a result.

Keep in mind that besides the Middle East events in Iraq/Syria with Isis and the conflict between Israel and Palestine, the talks to change the nuclear program of Iran met a deadline with no results  on July 20, the day of Saturn going Direct. Subsequently,  they have extended that deadline 4 more months

The power of change is enormous now and will continue to be so.   Later this week Mars will leave diplomatic and peace seeking Libra for intense, passionate and focused Scorpio this Friday July 25.

And the next day on Saturday July 26 there will be New Moon in Leo conjunct Jupiter and square that Mars in Scorpio.

This will be the final sign of our movement into a New Chapter of our lives, and it may be a most intense passage.

As we collectively move into a New Chapter/Season of our human lives on Planet Earth on the way to the Age of Aquarius in the 2020’s, so also do each of us in our personal lives.

If you have been procrastinating and reluctant to choose or make decision or pick a direction to move toward, there is a major turning point now begging you to choose and move forward.

The train of our lives will be taking off without us if we are not ready, and may as a result push us to where or what we may not want.  So please stay present and aware and do not avoid or be distracted.

All of the shakeups you may have been experiencing this year, in conjunction with Spring Eclipse Season and the Cardinal Grand Cross, were done so you would shift your consciousness and life into this New Chapter.

Uranus  and Saturn changing directions this week will bring a need to balance between opening up your life and liberating yourself from stuck mindsets or situations (Uranus), and keeping security and stability and being grounded (Saturn).

Mars going into Scorpio on July 25 will intensify your life, help you to focus and move forward, and feel your passion more.  It will stay in Scorpio until September 13, when it goes into Sagittarius.

The New Moon in Leo conjunct Jupiter will bring you more spirit and positive energy, more hope after perhaps previous difficulties.   This New Chapter of our lives needs hope and faith as we release old beliefs and ways of being, so we can align our consciousness and lives for the Age of Aquarius.

The changes in the world and the changes in our own consciousness and lives are meant to help us to get out of our stuck and controlling images and egos (the downside of Leo) and move more into our authentic and creative heartfelt selves (upside of Leo).

This week there is a shift forward for all of us.  Make intention that this new doorway will bring you to be more whole and healthy, more aligned with your authentic soul self and the Universe, more aware of the connections inside you and all around, more unified with everyone in our human family, and open and ready to embrace the Age of Aquarius.

No matter what craziness is happening in the world, you have the ability and strength to keep your focus on the world you want the children now and in the future to inhabit.  And so it is and so it shall be.

See you next week,

Blinded by the Light and Astrology Forecast July 13-19

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 12, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving into the the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Cancer New Moon on June 27.   The “climax” of that lunar cycle happened earlier this Saturday June 12.  It was a Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon, meaning Sun in Cancer and Moon opposite  in Capricorn.

This Full Moon brings us to the differences between archetypal mother (Cancer) and father (Capricorn) energies.  Together these signs represent security and safety, but in much different ways.

Cancer helps us to feel safe in our own skin, permissively able to just be whatever we feel like being.  We feel safe at home, and in our personal life.  We are shown how to honor “inner values”, values of caring, empathy, and processing feelings.  We learn to contribute to family.

Capricorn teaches us how to build a sense of security in the outer world, through accomplishment, discipline and planning.  We are made to feel we need to live up to our potential, build a solid career and to contribute to the world.

This Full Moon is meant to balance the Sun in Cancer’s influence from these past three weeks.   We have needed to be more unconditionally loving with ourselves and others, more open with our feelings, more into nurturing ourselves with “just being” instead of doing all the time.

Yes Cancer can be very unconditional, but in that process can sometimes go over the line and be too permissive without healthy boundaries.

So the Moon in Capricorn adds more strictness, healthy rules and boundaries, more self discipline and getting better at taking responsibility for ourself and our own life.

This is a good time to balance inner and outer values and to balance permissiveness with more strict behavior patterns.

This Full Moon is a turning point energetically.  As we are now in the waning half of the lunar cycle, we can begin to slow down, dust ourselves off, and make plans for what we will soon get involved in.

This Capricorn Full Moon begins to let us know we are needing to “get ourselves together” and get ready to make our lives work in all new ways, ways that are resonant with who we are becoming and what this new chapter of our lives can look like.

Soon things will open up more and be more energized.

This week, with the Moon waning however, we still have some time to decide what turns we will soon make.  While we are slowing down somewhat, there will also be counteracting energies.

As such Jupiter will be leaving homey and cave like Cancer for fiery and shining Leo.  This begins this Wednesday July 16.  Jupiter has been in Cancer for a year, will now stay in Leo for a year.

Jupiter opens up and expands whatever it touches, so as it moves into Leo it opens up the creative and spontaneous part of our hearts, helping us to be more creative, open hearted, confident, and shining of our personal light.

If you have ego issues, issues of a personal image being incongruous with your authentic self; then your own light will be blocked from shining to its fullest.   Low self esteem or glorified ego get in the way of natural self expression.

So this year is a good year to work on your ego and self esteem issues, so you can truly be more in your heart.  You can truly learn to love your self more with Jupiter in Leo, not love some image of your self, but love your true and authentic self.

This true and authentic self then has the confidence to express itself unselfconsciously and to shine light and warmth to all around.    And in the process it finds success.

Success is not a a dirty word.   It is about actualizing oneself and one’s potential and finding one’s place in the world from there. It is not about competition with others or about making money and fitting some image of success.  You just have to allow your authentic soul self to align with the Universe and then follow the yellow brick road from there- Of course easier said than done.

There is much ego to release to get there, much programming from society and family to let go of.

So Jupiter in Leo shifts us more intensely into the process of ego and soul self working things out.

Also coming soon, next Sunday July 20,  Saturn will end its Retrograde movement and go back Direct. It has been retrograde since March 2 2014.

Saturn is symbolically both gravity and the hand of time, so you can see how it represents that which you cannot escape. Gravity holds our bodies to this Earth and Time stops for no one, it just keeps on ticking.

As Saturn goes Direct, time marches on and we feel at that time that “reality” rules.

This can sometimes bring a sense of “fate” or “meant to be” or at least like it is time to “get it together” and move on. This feeling can start any time this week leading up to next Sunday.

Then after July 25/26, as Mars goes into Scorpio and the New Moon opens up in Leo conjunct Jupiter; it will be time to take whatever has changed since early this year, whatever we have learned or experienced during the time since then, and go more fully into this New Chapter of our lives.  Ready or Not Here We Come.

You will see this play out in the greater world also.   Events that will feel like they are fated will play out in the Middle East and perhaps other places too, events that will alter our human destiny. These events will thrust us more fully into this New Chapter in  our collective lives on Earth, a new season that is necessary for our evolution into the Age of Aquarius.

June 28 this year was the 100 year anniversary of the beginning of World War I in 1914.  On that date a Serbian man assassinated Austrian Archduke Ferdinand and his wife.  World War I began shortly thereafter from that incident that does not seem to have warranted complete chaos breaking out in the world.  It felt like fate.

In our world now Israel and Hamas are at war that threatens to get much worse. Add that to the power of the newly developed Islamic State in what was Syria and Iraq; the nuclear talk with Iran coming to an end; and the shake up from Arab Spring in 2011, and you can see the potential for complete transformation of the Middle East and our world as a result.

In your own life, please concentrate on the transformation of your own consciousness, not on the “stories” we will be given by the Powers or Media.  It is best to not allow your self to get swept up in the ego dramas of ‘us versus them”, good guys versus bad guys. It is best not to get swept up in bashing President Obama or the Republicans or any other person or party.

We are all in this together, and we all need to work together to create our Age of Aquarius.  And the “better than or worse than” mentality will just keep us stuck in the old paradigm and age.

This world is a co-creation and the new world is also a co-creation.  Transforming our consciousness is the gateway into the Age of Aquarius.   If we keep looking for enemies or looking down or up at anyone else, we are helping to perpetuate the consciousness of the old paradigm and age.

The light of the Age of Aquarius is there for each of us to follow. We just need to allow our souls to lead the way, as our egos will be blinded by the light.

See you next week,

Leo

Getting Ready to Leave the Cave and Astrology Forecast July 6-12

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 5, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Spring Eclipse Season is over.  The Cardinal Grand Cross is passing.  Mercury has now gone back direct.  Clarity and Direction are forming.

We have moved into a new chapter or season of both our individual and collective lives.  The Cancer lunar cycle we are moving through now suggests we gather with “family”, whatever that means for each of us; find ways to relax and nurture ourselves, as we take somewhat of a break from needing to push our selves or any agenda too much.

We are settling into our souls, reconnecting with our hearts, and finding our equilibrium.  We are integrating all the changes of the last few months into our consciousness and making whole our inner family of various facets of our soul.

This process will generally continue till mid to late July.  It is then we will begin to hear the clarion call to raise our flags of evolutionary progress and move forward.

On July 16 Jupiter leaves the womb of Cancer, where it has been contained for the last year, and begins to open up more to the creative heart light shining in Leo.

The message to get started again will get stronger after July 20, when Saturn the planetary hand of time goes back Direct again.   And then on July 22 we leave our inner caves even more as the Sun moves into Leo.

And then on July 25 Mars finally leaves peace and pleasant loving Libra, after being there since December 2013,  for the intensity and passion of Scorpio.

And on July 26 the Leo New Moon conjunct Jupiter will finish the job of launching us more fully forward into this new chapter of our soul’s journey.

This late July time period is a turning point forward after all the change and shakeup that began this last March 2014.

Many have had major breakdowns of their old lives since then. Others have had major breakthroughs and awakenings during that time. And some have had both breakdowns and breakthroughs.

Sometimes it seems everything will always stay the same, same-old forever.  Then those old lives are shaken up in one way or another as we are ready to go to another level or to enter a new season of our lives.

We each do have much creative input into our lives, especially if we want to take our authentic talents and fill a need in our world.  The Universe will support that intent.  And during times of great shakeup, walls break down and doors open to bring us closer to our soul’s intentions.

This may not always happen in the way we planned, but it will happen.

This is why meditation or other spiritual practices are so important, as they keep us connected to our soul intention.   When disconnected,  we make choices that are against our soul’s intentions.

Othertimes we try to hold on too long to something or someone we need to let go of, against our soul’s intentions to move forward.

Othertimes the programming we received from our society and family or the traumas we experienced earlier in our lives control our soul intentions and make us fearful of life and its changes.

And each time now that we enter an Eclipse Season or another important planetary time period, we are shaken out of our stuck places and helped to move into our soul’s path and our evolution into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius,

The greater world now is on the verge of great shakeup, a shakeup that intends to eventually open more doors into the New World and Age.

You can see the borders and boundaries of that Old World coming down.  Keep in mind that the boundaries we have created for countries in our world have been contrived, and most have been set through wars and invasions, and through World Powers at the time setting the boundaries for their own interests.

This is especially true in the Middle East, where most of our religions and civilizations were started.  Modern  Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, etc. were created in the 20th century and manipulated by colonial powers. Invasions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya were done to control those peoples’ fates in compliance with others’ needs.

And now as this group called ISIS is changing Middle East borders, as the USA borders are challenged by immigrants coming from Central America and Mexico; chaos is ensuing.

And borders will continue to be challenged, more and more so-called civil wars will break out, like in Ukraine.

At the same time forceful efforts to keep order will get more dominating.  Chaos versus Order will be a prevailing theme now.  Chaos seeks a break down of the old.  Order seeks a preservation of the old.

In your own life, when things break down, your old order is breaking down, and your efforts to keep order are your understandable desires for security and stability.

How much needs to change and how much you can keep things the same is determined in the process between chaos and order.

Chaos brings creative change; Order seeks to keep stability. Neither is the good one or bad one. They work together during changing times.

The Old Rules, the old school ways are also being challenged now as we move more fully into  our internet/computer age.  New Rules are born, new ways of thinking and being are created.

Some of the old ways you will be relieved are leaving, hopefully desires for power and greed and violent ways.  But some old ways you will not want to change, like human dignity, human caring and intimate contact between peoples.

Are we OK with new ways to have children, to clone or to use stem cells?  And if so, can we keep connected to our Earth and her needs, to nature, to our bodies and souls and their needs?

Can we work with Climate Change in a way that is healing for nature and our environment?  Can we learn to live in peace with one another, respecting the ways of those who are different from us.

How this Chaos versus Order transition time plays out is within our ability to vision and create. What are our priorities, and how much do we truly care about the future of the Earth, its creatures and our children and grandchildren?

Do we truly believe we can evolve in our consciousness and lives to meet the needs of the Age of Aquarius we are moving into?

The coming changes will be great.  See them either in your own life or in the greater world as opportunities to evolve and make changes that will serve the best potential of our selves and the world.

This coming week we are moving up to a Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn next Saturday July 13 at 7:25 AM EDT.  Keep to your intentions for nurturance, inner integration, and family connections.

But the Moon is in Capricorn for that Full Moon, so begin also to get prepared for more outer manifestation then.  But realize also that when you are ready to more fully leave your cave later this month, that you will want to keep intention for meditation, nurturing, and connection to “Feminine” values.  If you go back to just being concerned with obligations and accomplishments and “doing all the time” instead of “just being”, then you will not have the proper foundation for this new chapter of your life.

This week the Sun is triggering the now passing Grand Cross from April as it makes aspect to Pluto and Uranus. Events will continue to be heated in the Middle East.

If you are still “holding on”, you will get a nudge to let go this week.

See you next week,

Leo
