Better Navigating Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast June 1-7

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on May 31, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we continue through the lunar cycle that began last week at the Gemini New Moon.    So Gemini themes continue to be important:  learning, thinking, communicating, delivering and collecting information, socializing.

It is a good time now to take new classes or even just learn new things in any way that happens.   Gemini is about sharing information with others, taking information in and delivering information out.  There are no judgments in such sharing, no conclusions needed.  There is a satisfaction in learning and in gaining new facts

Gemini is not always concerned in how the information is being received and so it can seem insensitive, when in actuality it sees its “job” as merely to objectively state the facts.   It can be like a pure journalist, one whose job is to just objectively state what happened, not judge or give opinion.  That can seem cold to those who are more feeling oriented.

For instance if one asks a pure Gemini to describe how someone else looks, the fact stating Gemini may say “brown hair, blue eyes, thin legs, big feet and ears, large belly”.  It is merely stating the facts.  More sensitive people might feel embarrassed to hear someone say they have big feet and ears and a large belly.

So some Gemini’s need to learn to filter their natural way of communicating in order to not hurt people’s feelings.  Finding work or activities that appreciate their objective minds and communicating styles would be good for them.

Now sometimes Gemini can get so filled with information and have so many different thoughts or activities to work through that it gets scattered or confused or spacy, not grounded.

But usually it is so bright and aware, curious and questioning, needing more and more puzzles or intellectual challenges.

Speaking of mental workings and communication, the “ruling” planet of Gemini, Mercury, will be going Retrograde again late this coming week.

Next Saturday June 7 at 7:56 AM EDT Mercury will go Retrograde. It will stay that way until July 1 at 8:50 AM EDT.

Mercury is the “ruling” planet of both Gemini and Virgo, and as such can be driven by details, by needs to “figure it out”.

This Mercury will go Retrograde in Cancer, but will actually spend most of its time in Gemini.  And the Sun will be in Gemini also during much of the time Mercury will be Retrograde.

So be careful not to get overwhelmed with details, mental anxiety and stress, and obsessive needs to figure everything out.   Left brain ways of operating will not be as effective as usual, and events may come into your life that strongly suggest you use other means of effectiveness.   If you can meditate more, use your imagination, your intuition and creative thought, then the Retrograde period will be easier. If you can trust your heart more or at least learn to make better relationship between heart and head, then you may be gaining a lot during the Mercury Retrograde period of time.

Mercury Retrograde is not a time to be superstitiously feared or dreaded.   It happens 3-4 times a year and is a part of the natural process of planetary movements.  It is not meant to bring pain or suffering.  Instead it is meant to help readjust our thinking or communication, to shift our perceptions, to give pause to what we have previously decided or to a belief or attitude that no longer serves our soul’s journey, and to trust our hearts and the Universe more.

Sometimes we are so stressed to figure something out so we can fix something that is not working for us in our life, or so we can make a decision that is weighing on us.   We want the stress and anxiety to go away, so we want our answers fast.

But Mercury Retrograde often teaches us that issues need to unfold, that time needs to go by, before an answer is revealed. We learn it is not about our mind figuring out an answer, but instead it is about a process that needs to unfold before clarity can be found, before direction can be seen.   Our soul knows there is magic in the unknown, and allowing a process to unfold brings us that which cannot always be seen by our logical mind.

If I am given a choice between choosing a job at Wendy’s or one at a local department store, I may go back and forth with the pros and cons of each and end up not knowing which is best. I wrack my brain trying to “figure it out”. I stress and get much anxiety forcing my brain to come to a decision, when in actuality neither one feels right to me.

So I let it go, trusting the answer will come to me at the right time. may even go past the time I was supposed to make the decision.

You know those times when you try so hard to remember someone’s name or where they live or some other detail, and trying so hard with your brain just does not bring an answer. Then you let it go, and half an hour later the name or address just comes into your mind without you trying?

And other times, maybe during Mercury Retrograde, you go back and forth straining your brain trying to choose between that Wendy’s or department store job, and all you do is stress with no answer.

Then you let it go, and reflect and meditate and go into your heart.  You allow yourself to wait and trust, to trust your deeper soul, your heart, and the Universe.

A letter comes in the mail a few days later accepting you into a school you had forgotten you had applied to 6 months ago as you had figured you were not accepted.

Your true answer did not reside in the two options you were considering.   This is a potential value to Mercury Retrograde.  You may find it difficult, but it was meant to help you change your perception, to help you learn to trust your deeper soul and the Universe more.

Now of course every Mercury Retrograde does not always bring such treasures, but it will usually help you to shift your perceptions and perhaps even some rigid paradigm you may be clinging to.

These times now are bringing such rapid shifts of consciousness and change, and it is best to be flexible and open. And most of all it is best to stay awake and aware, present and accounted for.   Judgment of your self is not good, but being honest with yourself, holding your self accountable, and wanting to transform the old and toxic patterns is good.

In the greater world important and transformational events will likely begin mid June as Mars reignites the Grand Cross from April, and then events may get even more powerful in late July and August. And then there will be another strong Eclipse Season this autumn 2014.

And keep in mind that on Friday June 13 there is a Full Moon in Sagittarius: Friday the 13th Full Moon.  That will be a most auspicious time to honor the Feminine, the mysteries and beauty of the Feminine, the energies bursting at the seams of our collective human consciousness, ready to help our world evolve and heal.  More on that next week.

You are moving more and more strongly into your authentic soul self, more and more strongly connected to the Universe and the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Moving Forward as Mars Goes Direct and Astrology Forecast May 18-24

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week has planetary movements that energetically will orient us in two opposing directions.

On the one hand,  the Scorpio Full Moon last week pretty much brought an intense climax and end to Spring Eclipse Season 2014.  And of course the Cardinal Grand Cross played a huge role in making that Eclipse Season extremely intense and one to be remembered for a long time.  But now as we begin to leave that Eclipse Season, we also enter the waning slow-down half of the lunar cycle.

It is time to come down and look at what has been left to us in the wake of that Eclipse Season.    We have entered a new chapter of our lives, have moved more fully into honoring our truth and the authentic soul’s path we are on.   Events have shown us the way into letting go of the old chapter of our lives, letting go of old patterns of thought and behavior that are not in alignment with this new chapter of life we have entered.

We are coming down into our souls and bodies for healing, after the buzz of intensity that spiked us forward in our personal soul evolution. Hence we are ready to now reflect on what has happened and to gain some perspective and insight on where are lives are at now.

This could be a rather sobering time for some, facing up to realities or practical assessments of our life.

But yet the other counter energy on our doorstep is Mars going Direct late this Monday May 19.  That means we are feeling a force that makes us feel we are ready to move forward, to own this new chapter of our lives, to find ways to make our life work in all new ways.

We are closer to knowing what we want and where we are going as Mars is going Direct.  We may not know exactly what we are doing yet, but at least we sense the path we want to walk on in this new chapter of our lives.

In the greater world, everything has now been put in place for huge life altering events coming soon.

Russia and China are flexing their nationalistic muscles, wanting more power in the world.  Russia has annexed Crimea from Ukraine and seems to have designs on bringing back some of the glory from their Soviet Union days.

China has territorial conflicts with Japan, Phillipines, Viet Nam and other countries, and recently has made aggressive movements, asserting their formidable power.

India has elected a new prime minister, one who does not seem to care about making relationship with the USA or western powers.  Iran is at a turning point in its relationships with world powers.  There is a possible deal to be made around their nuclear program, and if not there is likely military conflict on the way.

The Palestinians have become more whole as Hamas has made a pact with more moderate Palestinian political powers, and are getting further away from making peace with Israel. Big conflicts are likely coming soon.

North Korea is said to be about to launch another missile, in defiance of the UN and world powers.

Syria is still in civil war, and Ukraine is breaking apart.  The world is on the verge of great transformation, a restructuring of power, moving into a multi-polar world.

Empires and Superpowers will become a reality of the past, and a more equitable Diversity in Unity world is developing.  That means a wholeness is needed that holds the differences together as one.   And Male and Female can be held as one, like a yin/yang symbol.

Women are becoming more powerful, and are doing so by claiming their feminine Power, moving away from a more male form of gaining their power.

’60s feminism got the ball rolling for women gaining more self respect, but the new generations of women are realizing that playing the man’s game out in the world did not bring them to true Feminine power.

Now many are wanting to change the world into one with more “femininity’, more love and compassion, more true honoring of Female and Female Power.

There has been a programming in our psyches that Female and Female ways are weak. There is programming that has sought to demean vulnerability and has sought to make fun of spirituality and a more feminine sense of what that means.

If it is not “logical” and proven by scientific methods, or is not in tune with a male God of religion, then it is put down- by both men and women.

The Feminine is needed in our world, so we are not just answering to a dog eat dog, logic driven, competitive paradigm.

And of course the true Masculine needs a revival, as we need a force of courage to speak the truth, to stand up for what we believe in and know is right.  We need to learn how to be true to our authentic selves, not what authority or convention tells us to be.

And most of all we need to bring the masculine and feminine sides of nature into loving balance and relationship, working together and not in battle with one another.

And our LGBT community has been gaining more acceptance and respect.    Just recently the macho dominated sports world has had people coming out as Gay, like in the NFL and NBA.

And we have a President who is half African American, and a country less tolerant of bigotry as was seen in the backlash against Clive Bundy and the president of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team.

We as a collective human community are seeing more clearly the path into an Age of Aquarius, especially so after this Eclipse Season.

But keep in mind that the forces that want to keep the old ways and old age in power are still strong.    And there are many explosive events coming our way, events that will break down that which is blocking the path forward.

Be ready for events that will include violent conflicts in the world and for financial realities to shift and change.  When they do it will seem like we are going backwards and making no progress. Please remember then that it is part of the transformational process of clearing our old patterns, old beliefs, old ways of being.

We can see where we are going now, and the Age of Aquarius is in sight.  But get ready for the next 18 months or so to be intense with both world and personal events that will be a part of the transformation and healing needed to bring us to our New World.

This week on the 19th, Mars goes Direct and we move forward. Then the Sun moves into mercurial Gemini the next day May 20, to add more positive energy to our lives, energy that is mentally bright and seeking to communicate.

It begins a month that is good for learning and educating, for light social activities, for gaining new information and delivering information, for asking questions and answering questions, for diverse activities and much mental activity.  Be careful not to be overwhelmed or too scattered, and remember to stay grounded with all the mental activity going through you.

See you next week,

Leo

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus and Astrology Forecast April 27- May 3

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

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The intensity continues this coming week as we experience energies gathering for the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus on Tuesday April 29 at 2:14 AM EDT.

Additionally, the Cardinal Grand Cross continues to be in effect, though not as close to exact, as it was this last week. The Cardinal Cross stays pretty much in effect through the time when Mars Goes Direct on May 19.  The Cross then morphs into a still strong Cardinal T-Square going into July.

So forget about going back to “normal”- whatever that means anymore.

Our collective and individual default positions have shifted and therefore finding the same inner comfort zone may be challenging for some and for some time.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus this week has the “intention” of taking what has been shaking up, taking whatever new is being born; and moving forward with it all in a grounded, palatable, and practical way.

In other words it is time to get more real and to concentrate on making things work.   The physical plane and the body need more attention now, and if like many others your body has been feeling the stresses of the planetary energies and intensities, then it is time to concentrate more on healing your body.  Find the connections between your psychological, emotional stresses and your body now.  One of the best ways to help facilitate this process in a Taurus way is to find grounding through what our senses find appealing.

That means being in nature, getting a massage, practicing yoga, eating tasty healthy meals, giving and getting more hugs, enjoying a comfortable home, and literally and metaphorically slowing down and smelling the roses of one’s life.

Life has been rather intense lately and so these more enjoyable Taurus ways to make relationship with the “body” of life is encouraged now.

This Solar Eclipse in Taurus may also manifest as being brought back down to Earth after such powerful changes and breakthroughs in recent days.

That means looking at your life in more real and practical ways.  That can mean taking what you are being awakened to lately and actually doing something meaningful with it.

The strength of new beginnings for manifestation are strong as this Taurus New Moon is many times stronger than the usual Taurus New Moon- because it is also a Solar Eclipse.

New beginnings may be initiated with this Solar Eclipse, and events both personally and especially worldwide are likely to touch off during this Solar Eclipse and at other triggering celestial events in the near future.

There is some real danger of a Russian invasion of Ukraine or some other large scale world event around the time of the Taurus Solar Eclipse this week.

It is even more likely that a large scale world event will happen at or after Mars going Direct on May 19.   And then an even more likely time of important world event to manifest would be at or soon after Mars triggers the exact Grand Cross degree from this past week-  on June 17.

After that, a likely time period for more powerful world events to occur would be after Mars goes into Scorpio on July 26This passage of Mars into Scorpio is especially important as Mars has been in harmony and peace loving Libra since early December 2013. It has been there that long because it has been retrograde for much of that time.  Whatever has been kept in abeyance by the love and peace vibes of Libra will tend to break open after that.

In August and especially in September 2014, energies that signify powerful eruptions of energy break out in the charts of Israel , Syria, Iran and the USA.  North Korea and China may also be in the spotlight.

And in October 2014 the Grand Cross is triggered again by a Lunar Eclipse in Aries, which sets off the USA natal Sun and Saturn again, promising events of great transformation for America.

And then of course remember that Uranus Square Pluto happens two more times: December 2014, and in a very powerful Cardinal T-Square of the USA chart again in April 2015.

So for the next year and perhaps up to 18 months there is promise of enormous change in the world and in the United States.

All this world transformation is part of the clearing out of old and decaying ways from a dying paradigm and age.  This releasing clears the way for the light and hope for an Age of Aquarius, which will be in true bloom after December of 2020 when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.  This is symbolism that resonates for me of a Dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

There is so much to experience between now and then, so much change and transformation.  There will be many surprises also that help us to let go of the programming and propaganda that has wanted to keep our hearts and minds chained to that old paradigm.

Open your mind to being blown open to new realities, new worlds beyond our current comprehension. There are so many frequencies of experience we have been closed off to, so many inner dimensions awaiting the arrival of our collective consciousness.  The outer and inner Universe is vast with much life we have not yet met.

There is a spirit and soul world we have not been taught about by our formal educations. Those educations demand our concentrations be on learning math and science, to keep us competitive with other countries in the world.

In our Earth world that has gotten smaller and smaller with international commerce, transportation, communication, internet, and yes world war; we are still babies in knowing how to get along with one another in an empathic way that understands we are all in this human journey together, one family made of diverse members, all equal in intrinsic worth.

Diversity in Unity is where we are all headed, knowing each of us is a needed instrument in the symphony of the Universe’s music of the spheres.

It is becoming more and more imperative that each of us gets to know, honor, and express our individual and authentic self, and to know purpose and meaning for our life. The self esteem that develops from those connections opens our hearts and minds to honoring others in the same way.

Keep your sanity now- and work on keeping your mind, body and soul as healthy as you can during these changing times.   Then trust the ride we are all taking to be one that is arriving in the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo

Cardinal Grand Cross Transformations and Astrology Forecast April 20-26

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

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week is when the Cardinal Grand Cross is as close to exact as it can get (April 20-23).  The Grand Cross will stay within orb (intact as a Grand Cross), however, through the middle of May, followed by Mars going Direct on the 19th of May.  Additionally there is  a second eclipse still on the way, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus on April 29.

So intensity will remain in high gear for quite awhile.  And a feeling of moving fully forward beyond the intensity of Eclipse Season 2014 may not happen until after Mars goes Direct.

This week the four “players” in the Cross make exact aspects to one another: Sunday the 20th Jupiter square Uranus and opposes Pluto; Monday the 21st powerful Uranus and Pluto make another square to one another;  Mars squares Jupiter on the 22nd; and Mars squares Pluto and opposes Uranus on the 23rd.

This week is a centerpiece and crossroads in Spring Eclipse and Cardinal Grand Cross Season 2014.  Attitudes and issues continue to shake up this week and it may be difficult to detach oneself from the turmoil at times, but on a deeper level, perhaps beyond conscious knowing, there will be a turning point. Do your best not to overreact to people or situation or potential stress.   These aspects are not meant to destroy your life, but instead to help you to transform that which is stuck or dysfunctional or lifeless.

Yet for some there may not be discernible turmoil, but nevertheless at some level of being there is still a big shift going on, and your deeper soul will be making the shift.  In that case pay attention to your dreams, your straying thoughts, images that may flash through your mind.  They will give you clues as to what is stirring and shifting at a deep level.

It is a synchronous moment in time this weekend as the Cardinal Cross comes together with Christianity’s Easter.  Christ is honored this Sunday April 20th in Christianity for dying on the Cross and being resurrected.

Jesus Christ, by all accounts, was born close to the time of a changing of ages over 2000 years ago.  We were shifting from an Aries Age to a Pisces Age near that  time.

Christ is said to have taught and embodied: compassion, turning the other cheek, understanding and empathy for one’s neighbors and enemies, being inner directed, and having more love in one’s heart.

The world he lived in, ruled by the Roman Empire, needed a rebirth into new energies represented by a New Age in Pisces.   His death on the Cross and subsequent resurrection were symbolic of an old consciousness dying and a new consciousness being born.

And now as we experience a Cardinal Grand Cross while celebrating Easter, we are at a turning point again in our journey from an old age to a new age.

Now we are in transition between that now dying Pisces Age and a New Age in Aquarius.

Equality, Diversity in Unity, and liberation from controls of our free minds and hearts are energies bursting at the seams, ready to enter our individual and collective consciousness.

We are also ready to move beyond the duality of spiritual plane versus material plane. We are ready in an Age of Aquarius to be spiritual beings in a physical body, without needing to choose one way of being over the other.  Our souls are naturally without boundaries and need a body so we can manifest material purpose on a material Earth.

The story of the material Roman Empire of 666 infamy versus the Christ consciousness of spirit and soul is a dying issue.  We are ready to join our unity seeking souls with the temporary limitations yet needed focus of the material world.

We no longer need, however, an Empire or Big government or Big Corporation or Big Religion to force our souls onto the material world.

The rules, regulations, and commandments of that world are no longer needed to be outside us to force us to comply.

As we humans take responsibility for our own world we eventually shed the Bigs from our lives.

And as we take responsibility for our own inner values, soul and spiritual connections; for our own abilities for compassion and empathy, we no longer need Saviors or Big Religion to make us spiritual.

We the individuals, we the people, joined together in community are the way of the Age of Aquarius.

And our USA country is now on the Cross as our natal Sun in Cancer is almost exactly in the Cardinal Cross.   And what is dying on that Cross is the USA separation from being an equal member of the World Community, no longer a Superpower Empire dominating the world, but instead a light of wisdom on how to bring varied cultures together in equality, community and freedom: Diversity in Unity. Our economic and military dominance is on that Cross, so our world can be reborn into an Age of Aquarius.

In your personal life if you are feeling better or worse than others, better or worse in your self esteem from others, then your ego needs to die on your own personal cross.

As you learn to love your authentic self and the authentic self of others in your life, you are moving into the Age of Aquarius.  If you are trying to live up to some image or have others’ in your life live up to some image, then a level of inauthentic ego needs to die on your personal cross.

Issues and challenges that come up now are meant to help you to accept your self or others in the truth of how you or they were made.

Then from that place of accepting the differences you are accepting diversity in your own life.

Then from that place in your consciousness, you can make authentic relationship with someone else, neither of you trying to be someone you are not, yet willing to “stretch” in order to “meet” the other person and make relationship.

Honoring of your true Self and theirs is the foundation to building healthy relationship.

So as you see your own life and the World face challenges now, remember it is an opportunity to have breakthroughs out of patterns, beliefs, “stories” and behaviors that do not work anymore.

The opportunity now to make breakthroughs, break chains, see with new eyes, and make your life healthier and better is great now.

But you need to get out of your own way, and quit blaming others for not having the life you desire, and take responsibility for your own soul and life.

This does not mean you beat yourself up, as that does not allow you to truly change and take responsibility.  It only makes you a victim of your own judgments and still stuck.

The world and our country are on the verge of great change. Don’t expect it all to miraculously and completely change in the next few days or weeks. Transformation is a process. Yet you can, however, expect the change over the next 18 months or so to be great enough to make our world as it exists now seem like an ancient world from that new vantage point.

Earthquakes this last week were frequent and strong, including quite big ones in Mexico City and Papua New Guinea.

Expect world event shockwaves to be strong soon also.  But remember that the world is neither going to end or change drastically all at once.

Concentrate in your own life on finding the breakthroughs, as movement through difficult issues is faster and cleaner now.  Do not concentrate on the problem, instead focus on the coming solutions.

If you have the time please enjoy the youtube video created for Spring Eclipse Season 2014 and the Cardinal Grand Cross.

See you next week,

Leo

Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon and Astrology Forecast April 13-19.

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

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Here comes the first eclipse this spring:  This Tuesday April 15 at 3:42 AM EDT.  The night before, on Monday April 14, Pluto will be changing directions to add to the anticipated increased intensity.

Already many are feeling the effects.

Things are cracking open, parts of our selves, our emotions, or our relationships that have been on lock down are coming up to be experienced again.

If you are or will be feeling out of your normal balance; feeling more emotional; getting more upset, anxious, stressed; and you are less able to keep a lid on issues; then it is a good time for breakthroughs and awakenings.

If you are able to talk about what is going on with your mate or a family member or friend or a counselor, you will soon see that you can get to the core or bottom of issues more easily. And from that place you will be more able to gain deeper awareness and insights, and more able to work through your issues.

This ability to go deeper, to see the core truths, and truly work through what has been bothering you will be greatly enhanced all month long.

This first eclipse on Tuesday April 15 is Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.  In North America you will be able to see it, as it is in your path and it will happen while it is dark outside.

This will be a Full Moon in Aries/Libra, and because it is also an eclipse it has many times more energy, impact and importance than the usual Full Moon.

As it is an Aries/Libra Full Moon, relationships will be in the spotlight, relationships of all kinds.  There will be the necessity of balancing your need to be true to your self and do what is best for you, with truly listening empathically to the “other” and being in relationship with them.

Old issues may be coming up again and new issues may be coming alive. But remember that it is important to truly listen while holding onto your empowerment.

Another issue between Aries and Libra is between being frank, direct and straightforward (Aries); or saying what you want to say with more “sugar” on it.   Sometimes it is best to just say what you mean, the hard truth, so the other person wakes up.  Other times it is best to sugarcoat so the other person does not go on the defensive and then can truly listen to what you have to say.

Aries wants independence and Libra wants to make relationship; so another issue to work out may be around how you can balance those needs in your relationship.  If either or both of you are very independent and don’t try to get close, then your relationship will eventually die. If either or both of you are close all the time without much space or freedom from one another, then you will get co-dependent and build a resentment because you will lose touch with your self.

If any of these issues come up for you now, please know that there is the opportunity to work on them.  Of course there is always the chance that you will find you are not compatible, but there is also the chance you will transform your relationship to a healthier one as you break through old and stuck patterns.

Keep in mind that the intense energies of change will stay alive all month long as the Grand Cross is building its energy and will reach its climax of influence from April 19-23.  And then the 2nd eclipse will occur on April 29. It will be Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus.

So let your self take the ride of these important and powerful planetary aspects.  So much is ready to break open and break through so you can move forward in your life into a new chapter or season.

If you get glimpses or memories now of times gone by, it is because this transition into your new season of life is a big one.  There may be some grief or sorrow attendant to the shifts, and the grieving is in part meant to help you release the past.

Holding on will only cause you pain, and is against nature.  Your soul and body are a part of nature and they know when you need to move on.  Trust their wisdom now, and move forward.   What you think makes you feel safe is in reality just a security blanket of what is familiar to you.

Once you let go of the shore in your mind and heart, you will be taken down the river of your soul’s path, taken to where you are ready to go.

For many this month will be one of big doors opening into new vistas, and new adventures, and a liberation from what has held you back.

In the greater world you can see things breaking down with more tragedies, natural disasters, and war cries. More and more people are becoming aware that the foundation holding the markets and economy is cracking.

The last time there was a Cardinal Grand Cross that held Uranus square Pluto within it, and in the same month there were eclipses was in September 1931. In fact the last time Uranus squared Pluto, as is now happening from 2012-2015,  was in the ’30s.

We all know what was going on then: The Great Depression.    So we are coming Full Circle on that event as can be seen astrologically.  What will that mean over the next couple of years?  It could mean a collapse of the old economy and markets and a powerful transformation into a new way of doing business on the Earth: one that is more just and equitable and less run by ruthless competition and greed.

And whatever happens with Russia, China, Iran, Egypt, Israel, Palestine, etc, even potentially in the form of great conflicts, is happening because the power balance is shifting to one of more equality, and into Diversity in Unity.

The USA natal Sun will be almost exactly in aspect to the Grand Cross from April 19-23.   So potentially important events and challenges are coming to America. If they do not all happen during April, April’s Grand Cross will set the table for when future triggering planetary events happen over the next 18 months.

This coming autumn and next spring’s eclipses ignite the same cardinal degrees of the zodiac and reignite the USA natal Sun position as well as its natal Saturn position.

That means that whatever events happen concerning the USA this Spring, they will just be the beginning of its immense transformation.   We will need to re-member what values and principles are at the heart of this nation, and release the decay that has been growing within its soul.

We will need to join the world community in a new way as an equal member who respects the rights of others for liberty and self determination, equality, dignity and self respect.

And in our own home we will need to stop the childish bickering between parties, the back biting and the priority of self gain. We need to think less of winning and greed and more about doing what is best for our American and world communities, for the Earth and our collective human family.

There will be breakdowns and breakthroughs now in our individual lives and in our world.

You can already see what some of our new chapter here in America is looking like just by seeing what is happening in late night TV.  The older generation of late night talk hosts is leaving with the retirement of Jay Leno and David Letterman.

This is a microcosm of what is happening in our world in this new chapter:  A new generation is rising and will bring new voices to our country and world.

Jimmy Fallon and especially Steven Colbert represent a new voice wanting to be heard in our land.  It is true they will be on mainstream, corporate owned TV, and that severely limits creative freedom, but still it is change and hopefully voices and messages outside the old boxes and patterns.

So see in your own life how this new chapter is affecting you.  What needs to be released and what needs to be born in your life?  Take the ride this month and keep your mind and heart open so you can be in alignment with your self and the Universe.  We are moving faster into the Age of Aquarius now.

Spring Eclipse Season 2014 Begins and Astrology Forecast March 30- April 5

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 29, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Spring Eclipse Season 2014 promises to be one we will always remember.    The New Moon in Aries on Sunday March 30 at 2:45 PM EDT can be considered the time of turning the ignition key into that Season.  Aries is like the thrust outward into the world at a new baby’s birth, of the buds pushing through branches in spring, of a warrior’s courage to fight for what is right, of the courageous statement of a gay man or woman to be true to themselves and come out.   Aries is the force of nature to emerge.

If you have holding back from starting something new, doing something new, turning over a new leaf in your life, or truly living your life alive, now is a good time to begin. It is a good time to emerge from winter’s slumber of self protection.  It is time to clean up the act, dust off the cobwebs, and breathe in the fresh new air.

The day before the New Moon in Aries, while the Sun in Aries still awaited the Moon to join it there, the force of a strong 5.1 earthquake was felt in Los Angeles, which can be seen as the beginning shakeup of our USA experience this Eclipse Season.  The USA will be going through some growing pains during this Eclipse Season, in large part because the Cardinal Grand Cross, which will be in effect much of this month of April, will be exactly in aspect to the USA natal Sun position of  13+ degrees of Cancer on July 4 1776. This will happen toward the end of the month.

We citizens of the USA are on a journey of great transformation, and Spring Eclipse Season 2014 will spike and accelerate that transformation.  During our American Revolution we created sacred documents like our constitution and bill of rights, documents that channeled Universal Rights like Freedom and Liberty, Self determination, and Equality of all humans.

Our natal Moon in Aquarius gives us values aligned with the Aquarian Age, like Diversity in Unity, seen inside our shores through immigration of peoples from varied cultures over the years.   Our democracy is supposed to give power to the people, beyond the old age of kings and queens, and dictators.   Freedom of speech is another Aquarian Age principle that is a part of America.

Where we have gone wrong is the fact that many of our citizens fail to know that these Aquarian values are for all peoples, not just Americans.  We are equal to all others, not better.   Our Superpower Empire status precludes worldwide equality and Diversity in Unity.  Our invasion of other countries and pushing other countries to our style of capitalism and democracy does not allow for others’ Self Determination and freedom.

Corporate control of our country takes power away from the people.  Our over-valuing and over-paying of celebrity goes against our values of equality.

We are on the verge of a humbling and a breakdown of institutions and ways that have taken us away from our core principles.   We are at a turning point in our evolution as a country, as we choose our fate to be like Rome’s decay or like a renewed breath of fresh air in the world.

We need to return to our core soul values, values aligned with the Universe and the Age of Aquarius.   Our Moon in Aquarius reflects our soul’s voice.  When a country or an individual lose their soul, the life force that animates them dies. They become an empty shell.

As we breathe new life into our soul, we are reborn.

And soon world events will challenge us to grow and evolve or not.  Russia’s new flexing of its muscles, China’s strength in the world, Iran’s desires to be empowered, all promise a new balance of power in the world.

How will we react to others’s wanting to level the world playing field?

When the 9-11 tragic attack on the World Trade Center and America occurred in 2001, do you feel that the way the USA responded showed movement toward decay in relation to its core values or did it transform in a positive way and evolve?

New events will challenge the USA again to evolve or die another layer of soul death.

And in your personal life, which may be challenged this Spring Eclipse Season, will you see whatever happens in a meaningful context, as part of your soul journey this lifetime?   Will you learn from the experience, and take responsibility for your life?  Or will you mostly look for blame or see through the lens of good and bad luck?

Will you release that which keeps your ego in charge, keeps security needs as your top priority, and fear as your primary guide?   Or will you yield to the wisdom of your soul, and let it guide you to your authentic self and your core inner values?

This season, beginning forcefully this month of April,  will be a test of trust and faith for many.   Do you trust the new way of a new era in your life, or do you feel old fears and doubts and needs to control taking over your mind and emotions?

If the latter doubts get too strong, it is time to do some releasing- releasing old attitudes and beliefs, releasing people, jobs or property that reflect your fears and doubts from your old era of life.

As you release, doors of opportunity will open, new insights and inspirations will emerge, and light will have a place to enter your heart and mind.

Old programming creates blocks to the light, blocks in our bodies and souls.    Old patterns of thought and behavior that keep “Groundhog Day” same old, same old patterns to keep repeating, repeating can now be transformed into healthier new ways of being.

So get ready to emerge into new light rays this Spring 2014, and do not be daunted by any world events that tend to inspire fear in your heart.  All is in divine order and happening for a reason.  Your job is to stay aligned and to make choices that reflect and maintain that alignment.  Keeping your mind, body and soul healthy is of paramount importance and gives you a strong foundation for your personal evolution.  That does not mean being perfect and not enjoying life, but instead means doing what is necessary to keep you sane and in balance.

After this New Moon, which forms a strong T-square because of  a conjunction to Uranus and a square to Pluto, we will have entered our Eclipse Season.  Energies will intensify as we get into mid month of April.

On April 15 is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aries/Libra.   Then the Cardinal Grand Cross gets near exact after April 19 until around April 24.  Then the second eclipse happens on April 29, a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus.

Mars goes Direct on May 19, pushing us in a renewed way, forward again after the shakeups of April. Then late spring and summer bring new events that are aligned with how we weather the storms in April.

Of course we will look more insightfully into the meaning of each planetary configuration as we get closer to the actual astrological events.  We will also look more closely at how the planetary alignments this spring will affect the different astrological signs.  And we will put whatever world events that occur this spring into the context of the planetary movements and our voyage into the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo

Clearing the Way for a Powerful Spring Season and Astrology Forecast March 23-29.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on March 22, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Sunday March 23 brings us a last quarter Moon in Capricorn.   This last quarter Moon will lead to a New Moon in Aries on March 30, a New Moon that will inaugurate Spring Eclipse Season 2014.  And this Spring Eclipse Season will be more powerful than usual as it will have 2 eclipses and also include a Cardinal Grand Cross.   I just put out a new Youtube video to put in larger context the significance of these spring planetary configurations.

This coming week during the last quarter Moon in Capricorn, it is time to wipe away any winter slumber from your eyes so you can be more fully ready to embrace new life energies.

Spring is always a time to come alive along with nature.  In early Aries time, as it is now, much of nature is stirring beneath the surface, getting ready to push its life buds outward into the world.

The Aries New Moon on March 30 initiates a lunar cycle that brings those promising buds of renewal and hope out into the open.  And this year 2014 will follow suit and bring us that same new life as always.   But this spring the force of new life will ignite fires of change beyond what is usual.

It is almost as if this past winter of our discontent has been building inside a desire to burst forth this spring with greater than usual power.

As the snows melt and life is renewed, all that has been held in abeyance will erupt in more powerful ways than usual.

So use this next week before the beginning of Spring Eclipse Season 2014 to complete and resolve what is still being left hanging in your mind and life.  Fix what needs to be fixed and prepare your life’s ground for renewal.

If you have been putting off making the changes that will make your life healthier and happier, make plans now for how you will make those changes.

Use the stirrings of new life inside you to your benefit.   Do not let your mind and emotions bring you into negative spaces now.  The tide has turned to seeing life with new eyes, eyes that can see new life ahead.

The powerful waves of change that the eclipses and Grand Cross represent are meant to motivate you to take on new challenges and push your life forward.

You will be able to ride the waves of change and bring your self up to a higher level of operation.   What is coming to our world and individual lives is meant to assist us to evolve and grow.

Old ways of thinking and feeling that tear you down and disempower you are ready to be shed. Old ways of thinking and feeling that blame you or someone else for what has happened in the past are ready to be let go.

Your life is meaningful. Everything from your past, whether it felt good or bad, is a stepping stone for your evolution.

There is a new Aquarian Age birthing, and all of us are getting ready now for a spike of growth this spring, a spike that is reflected in the powerful planetary movements.

If you have been holding onto dying embers from the past, they are ready to go.  Regrets are a waste of time. Blame avoids seeing life in a meaningful context and accepting true responsibility for our life.

What is no longer “alive” in your heart is getting ready to be shed. If there are breakdowns on the way, it is merely a breakdown of an empty shell, one that no longer holds lifeblood.

As you let go of these blocks to true life in your heart and soul, you open up space for renewed life.   And then this powerful Spring Eclipse Season will bring breakthroughs and awakenings your way, new ideas and inspirations that will light your soul’s path.

The greater world is on the verge of much turmoil, breakdowns of institutions and security structures that no longer hold core soul values anymore.  Life cannot truly continue without spirit and soul. Powerful events that change life as we know will move into our world this spring and over the next 18 months or so.

Spirit and soul are what keep life alive.  We are spirit and soul, and our bodies are what we possess to hold that soul during an incarnation.   When soul dies, when our hearts become devoid of spirit, life itself has died.

Our security structures become empty vessels, and we lose our will to truly live.  We just go through the motions, waiting for the end.

This Spring Eclipse Season, with a most powerful Cardinal Grand Cross, will help each of us to come alive again.    If you fight the new life because you are afraid to live, you will cause your self pain, depression, or dis-ease.

So use this coming week, this week of the last quarter Moon before the New Moon in Aries ignites renewed life, to prepare and complete and to try on new life for size.  The fires are beginning inside.  Do you feel it or are you being distracted by the cold air of winter’s passing?

There is no stopping the train ride, soon getting faster, into an Aquarian Age.

If you have the time please enjoy the youtube video just created.

See you next week,

Leo

Welcome to Spring 2014 and Astrology Forecast March 16-22

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 15, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

A bit earlier than I anticipated, the winds of the powerful April planetary configurations are already blowing through our emotions and lives.

Many are already being taken out of their usual equilibrium, and being challenged to respond to the difficulties being presented to them.

It is time for all of us to “raise our game” as we will be surfing higher tides of change.

April 15 brings us the 1st of two eclipses, a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.   On April 29 there will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus.

And from April 19-23 there will be an exact Cardinal Grand Cross, pretty much right in between the eclipses.

I expected us to feel and begin to experience the intensity after the New Moon in Aries on March 30, but now as we approach the Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo Sunday March 16 And Spring Equinox on March 20 there is already evidence of cosmic power.

Of course 3 legs of the 4 legged Grand Cross are already in close orb with one another: Jupiter in Cancer; Uranus in Aries; and Pluto in Capricorn, forming a Cardinal T-square.  In April they will get even closer in orb to one another, as they all go into 13+ degrees of their respective signs.  Then the 4th leg joins for a Cardinal Grand Cross when Mars goes to 13+ degrees of Libra.  And this happens in the midst of Eclipse Season in the month of April.

Our collective and individual lives are getting stimulated to evolve and progress.  And in the process our “weaknesses” are being poked and prodded, being brought forward in our consciousness to witness and work with.

For instance if you have a deep wound about abandonment,  circumstances may ensue that remind you of that wound. You then have the opportunity, perhaps after some distress around it, to see that wound in a new light, and to work to transform how it operates in your consciousness and life.

If you are tempted to go to old patterns of beating yourself up or losing trust or letting fear take over, you can stop the downward slide into pits of emotional suffering and instead rise to new levels of awareness and personal evolution.

We are all moving into a New Chapter of life on Planet Earth, an Age of Aquarius.  And at times when planetary power increases as it will be this spring 2014, energies are being spiked so we can grow into the consciousness and lives appropriate to the New Light of a New Age.

But the process is not always easy, as is usual with births of all kinds.  We are often faced with our demons and doubts, experience grief and regret, anger and fear.   We learn to release as well as we can these old programs and habits, and open to trust what is coming on our path.

After the New Moon in Aries on March 30, we will be more in outer action mode, new beginnings more fully being experienced.  What is happening now is merely a prelude or preparation before the action picks up in April.

The Full Moon on March 16 at 1:08 PM EDT is the annual Pisces/Virgo Full Moon.   It is a Full Moon that seeks to assist us in letting go more fully of our egos, and instead embrace our surrender to the Universe and own our path of service.

There is also a balance sought at this Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo between the unseen spiritual/soul/emotional plane and the tangible/material/scientific plane.. For instance,  your illness is a result of the germs you picked up, but it is also a result of some psychological/emotional need you may have also.  You perhaps got sick because you need to slow down and nurture your self and also because you picked up some virus or germ.

That is the balance between soul oriented Pisces and physically oriented Virgo.

What they both have in common is a need to be humble and submissive to something greater than one’s ego.

So use this potentially healing Full Moon to be more receptive to what has been or will soon be coming your way.   We often have little control over what comes our way, but do have the ability to respond in a beneficial and healthy manner to what we are given.

Trust that what is best for your soul’s journey is coming your way, even if it is not what your ego would choose.  Or as the Rolling Stones say, paraphrased, “you can’t always get what you want, …….but you get what you need.”

Also most importantly this coming week, on Thursday March 20 at 12:57 PM EDT there is the Spring Equinox 2014, Sun going into Aries.

At Spring Equinox dark and light, yin and yang are equal.  But right after that moment of equanimity, Yang and Light energies begin to gain in strength. This moment is like the daily sunrise moment. It is time to energetically shift our of winter’s slumber, wipe away the dust from our eyes, and begin to embrace active energy again.

Aries is the force of buds coming through tree branches; a new baby’s life; a teenager’s movement into puberty; a pioneer’s finding a new path; a person’s courage to stand up for what they know is right; a statement of “I AM” what I AM, and proud of it; a frank and straightforward expression; self assertion; taking care of one’s own needs; and needs for independence. It takes courage to truly be alive, to not just coast through life, and Aries is that fire of desire to survive.   Aries can also be competition and battles or war.

In the greater world the balance of power is shifting.  The USA is in the crosshairs of the Grand Cross this spring.  Its natal Sun is at 13+ degrees of Cancer and exactly in the Cardinal Grand Cross pattern.

What is happening with Russia in Ukraine, in Iran, with Israel and the Palestinians is all coming to a head. Expect new and perhaps explosive events to boil over. These events and a shaky recovery from the recession of 2008-09 could blow up the markets soon.  Natural events could also be powerful this spring, like earthquakes, etc.

These expected shakeups of the structures that govern the world of societal programs and paradigms will clear the way for new lights of awareness to come through our lives and consciousness.

The way we were programmed to see truth, the way we were programmed to view those who are “different” from us, the way we were programmed to behave, the way we were programmed to close our hearts and minds for the good of the “rules” for living; all these are ripe for powerful transformational change.

We are learning how to see the truth, to react with love and compassion, to learn better ways to live than what has been programmed into us; while at the same time learning to be safe and secure and fit in as best we can.

Now with the power of Spring Eclipse Season upon us, we will be taken out of our familiar comfort zones and asked to “raise our awareness”, release what is ready to die, and enter new zones and chapters of our lives.

The spike in intensity, healing, and transformation this Spring Eclipse Season 2014 should be even more powerful than other recent Eclipse Seasons.

See you next week,

Leo

Lifting the Fog as Mercury goes Direct and Astrology Forecast February 23- March 1

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on February 22, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Tides are beginning to shift this week out of the recent doldrums.  Early in the week Jupiter squares Uranus, activating the Cardinal T-square and bringing energies intended to awaken us from any slumber we have drifted into.

Mercury will also be awakening our sense of clarity as it finally goes back Direct this coming Friday February 28 at 9 AM EST.   If full clarity and direction have not been found yet at that time, wait a few days for Mercury to get close to its usual speed.  Then this Twilight Zone mind frame you have been experiencing will be lifted from its fog of uncertainty.

You will then feel more confident to make decisions and make plans.   That will be especially true after the New Moon in Pisces on March 1 at 3 AM EST, as a feeling of new beginnings gets sparked in our consciousness.

That does not mean it is time to move fast forward.  This New Moon is in Pisces, so the new beginnings are to be found more in your consciousness than in your actions.

There is a new day dawning, and spring is getting closer.   The alarm clock is ringing for you to get up, but metaphorically speaking you will need time to shower, do some stretches, and get a good breakfast before taking on the world.

Getting out in full action in the world will happen later in March, after the New Moon in Aries on March 30.

That new moon will trigger the Spring Eclipse Season 2014, a more powerful than usual Eclipse Season as it will also contain an exact Cardinal Grand Cross.  That Cardinal Grand Cross will contain the exact Uranus/Pluto square within it, and transformational energies will be especially strong.  There will be only two more exact passes of Uranus square Pluto, one in December 2014 and the last one in March 2015.

The one this April that is part of the Cardinal Cross is the most important pass of all.  It is pointed right on the USA natal Sun from its birth on July 4 1776.

This spring represents a major turning point for the world and especially for America.    This does not necessarily mean that everything will change drastically at that time.  It does mean, however, that the “writing will be on the wall” of our awareness,  showing us more clearly where our human train is headed and what will be needed to clear the way into the Age of Aquarius.

We have been talking about chaos versus order being a major theme now and most especially this coming spring and summer.

You can get a taste of this by watching the dramas unfold in Ukraine.  Opposition forces have been trying to break down the current government and the government has been using quite forceful methods to keep the order.  Chaos and order have been intertwined with one another.  As a backdrop, Russia and Western powers are fighting for influence there.

There will likely be big breakdowns coming to the structures in the USA soon, and as a result there will be quite forceful means to keeping the status quo and order.  Whether this happens in the form of a stock market crash or terrorism or an outbreak of war between Israel and Iran or something else is not certainly known.

It is also possible that more surprising events could break open. What is important is that the world as we know it is not viable anymore.  It is run by a paradigm that does not honor love or trust or truth, that does not see all of us as connected, that does not search for solutions that will heal our Earth or human family.

Winning, wealth, celebrity, and power are the values most promoted in our culture.  Fear and feelings of failure, hopelessness, ego problems, anxiety, depression,  and separation are the results for many.

Just look at our politics for instance.  The Netflix drama “House of Cards” shows in an exaggerated and dramatic way the values of our culture.  Winning is everything and at all costs, and the ends justify the means.

On news talk shows there is much talk already of who will win the presidency in 2016.  There is so little talk about issues or values, and if they are discussed it is in the context of the other side being painted as enemies.

Where are the leaders who care most about bringing us all together as one, not only in our own country but all over the world? Where are the leaders more concerned about healing our Earth and human family than about corporate profits or victory?

Hey I do like sports, but they are only games.   Our political system treats what should be a discussion of what will be best for our community into a game of winning versus losing, with losing candidates shamed and winning candidates treated like heroes.

Yes this system and its paradigm need to come down.   How can we live in a world where CEO’S earn million of dollars a year while other people work for $10/hour?  How can we maintain a world where people who play the game right, are the most selfish, and kiss the right asses are rewarded with wealth and privilege, while others who tell the truth, are talented and bright, and care about doing what is right and working hard struggle just to survive?

How can we live much longer in a world that puts so many of its citizens in prison?  Can it be so many people are just plain bad or evil?  Or can it be that we have created a world that punishes those who have a difficult time fitting in or caring about themselves?

To make this point did you know that 65% of male to female and 29% of female to male transgender people have spent time in jail? Both those figures are much higher than the general population.

As painful as it is to imagine this society breaking down, what is the alternative?  To keep the status quo of an unfair and corrupt world structure?

Everyone is not connected to their authentic soul self or to the Universe, have not broken out of the programming of a fear based, ego based, power and greed based, guilt based society.

Yes we can each continue to walk our spiritual path, being an example for others, shining a light wherever we walk.   But there are many who are mentally ill or imprisoned, handicapped in some way, not privy to new consciousness, buried in fear and only able to see the world through the eyes of its programs and rules.

In my estimation it will take important and dramatic world events to transform the collective consciousness well enough so we can heal this Earth, our home in time.

Each time there is a powerful set of planetary configurations, as there is this spring and summer, there is a spike in earth shaking energies that are intended to break down the old and open the doors and windows to new consciousness for a new age.

Let us pray that these divine, natural energies will bring change as graceful as possible to our world.

I will be on vacation from March 2-10, so will miss one Saturday forecast on March 8.

I have decided to do the next YouTube video at the Spring Equinox, to be more attuned to what Spring Eclipse Season 2014 wil bring.

See you next week,

Leo

Into the Mystic and Astrology Forecast February 8-15

The 3 week Mercury Retrograde voyage has begun.  If you can stay inside your self and not be too outer directed during this time period, you will be more able to enter the domain between waking and sleeping, between imagination and true inner spirits.

Since Mercury has gone Retrograde in Pisces, where it will stay for the first week or so of that retrograde voyage, your rewards while meditating may be greater, and your ability to “see” inside may be enhanced.

When you gaze into the woods or stare up at the clouds and see figures or faces, when you enter an old house and feel or sense a presence, is it your imagination or are you experiencing spirits from the other side?

When you hear two sides of an argument and both seem credible, where does the truth lie?    Mercury Retrograde in Pisces has the potential to take you into this world of shifting soul waters, where truth is not easy to ascertain.

Woody Allen and Mia Farrow bring us into foggy alleyways of elusive truth with their story of possible sexual abuse of Dylan Farrow.   Now grown Dylan Farrow claims her father Woody molested her as a young girl, a claim that was also made while she was still a child.  Woody denies and claims Dylan was coached by her enraged mother Mia to tell a lie. He says she was angry because Woody fell in love with and married her daughter Soon Yi many years ago.

To an objective person with no bias either way,  logical left brain logic will be hard pressed to know the truth. One would need to go deeper, reflect and intuit. And even then, you may not be clear. After Mercury has gone direct on February 28, perhaps Truth will be easier to find in this and in other issues. Decisions and direction will be more clear then too.

So get comfortable in these more mystical mental waters.  Realize you may be more apt to space out more, to forget, to have heard it wrong, to have read it wrong.   Your mind, your communication, your communication equipment, may be off at times.    The more time you can spend in quiet reflection and contemplation, in meditation, listening to music, watching movies, zoning out, being in trance, the more you will get the benefits of this Mercury Retrograde time period.

Even after Mercury enters Aquarius, while still Retrograde, on February 13, it will still be beneficial to stay in the “kingdom within” until after February 28 when it goes back Direct.

Remember we are in the prep time before the Spring 2014 Eclipse Season, centered in April when we experience two eclipses, and most importantly an exact Cardinal Grand Cross of planets.

The rhythms of Chaos and Order will be in strong force this spring, as reliable world institutions and structures will be cracking at their foundations, while concerted efforts to bring renewed order will be in full force. This Grand Cross makes an almost exact aspect to the USA natal Sun in Cancer from its birth chart of July 4, 1776, challenging the USA to change and transform.

In your personal life let the healing continue now, let the process play out.  Pushing forward now, or grasping for answers or direction, is unwise.  Trust more the deeper soul, the Universe, to unfold with just the right timing to provide what is needed and when it is needed.

This does not mean you should be passive and unengaged with life.   It only means that anxious striving to relieve the stress or unknowing will not bring what you need.   Your trusting means trusting your self too.  You were made exactly right to execute your life in just the right way.  It is your fears, your old traumas and wounds, your programming by society and family that make it difficult to trust and be aligned with your authentic soul and the Universe.

So use this time period to heal and release those old fears and wounds, and to open deeper to the Truth and Love that are our human Home.

This week we are still in waxing Moon phase, and on Friday February 14 at society’s designated Valentines Day we experience a Full Moon. Of course Full Moons can be experienced in a romantic light, bringing more music and magic to or souls.

This Full Moon is at 6:53 PM EST.  It is made by the Sun in Aquarius shining its light on the Moon in Leo, directly opposite. And oppositions are relational in nature, as I may look at you from opposite the table, two individualized diverse energies looking for common ground and connection.

The Sun in Aquarius shines a light of socially conscious principles on the heart centered creative ground of the Moon in Leo.  The Moon in Leo will go where the heart tells it to go.  The Sun in Aquarius trusts more the mind from its detached perspective.  By itself the heart may go to what feels good but not necessarily bring the best results for all concerned.  By itself the mind may bring what is “right”, but without love or pleasure.

Should you buy the shiny beautiful car your heart desires, or the ecologically efficient compact one?  Can you find a middle ground? Combining heart and head is a good exercise at this Aquarius/Leo Full Moon.

After Friday’s Full Moon, we move into the yin-ward waning Moon cycle, and then on February 18 we experience a month of Sun in Pisces, the last month of winter.

Until next week,

Leo
