End of Eclipse Season, Autumn Equinox, and Astrology Forecast September 17-23

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we come to the end of Eclipse Season, which has been a most powerful time of shifting life tides,  taking us faster forward through a New Life Chapter that is closer than ever to the Age of Aquarius.

Now that the Eclipse Season, which included Mercury Retrograde, is ending at the New Moon in Virgo this week; we are able to gain some perspective and insight into what happened and what may come next.

Many of us have been taken to important turning points in our lives, perhaps even requiring crossroads decisions.

For awhile now we may need to get our bearings after the intensity of the passing Eclipse Season, and the Virgo energies now will help us to analyze what has happened, to bring order to our lives, and to simplify what has been a rather complicated time period.

This is not a time to push forward, instead it is a time to fix up, repair, heal, clean up, and figure out.

That is because there is a New Moon in Virgo on September 19/20- actually at 1:30 AM EDT on the 20th. Mercury and Mars will already be in Virgo at that time, and Venus will have just arrived there too.

Virgo energy gives us greater ability to discern and be discriminating, to skeptically question, to be critical- hopefully in a constructive way.

So you will have the ability to take apart and view more closely the details of what is happening in your life.  Be careful, however, not to let healthy questioning turn into negativity, unfair criticism, and cynicism.  And be careful not to take yourself apart critically.

Virgo can be very perfectionistic and has a tendency to see life’s glass as half empty not half full.

In examining the world after the important events of Eclipse Season, we will have the ability to examine and find order, but must be careful not to be too negative, worrying, or fearful in the process.

We had extreme weather conditions and natural disasters, with an 8.1 Earthquake in Mexico, two very powerful hurricanes to hit the USA, as well as western USA wildfires that were more out of control than usual.

Culture wars picked up speed, starting in Charlottesville with KKK and neo Nazis instigating hatreds and violence.

The Middle East showed signs of change as Islamic State was wiped out of many locales it controlled, though it did perpetrate terrorist attacks at the same time. Syria is apparently more settled now, but  at the same time Israel and Iran are showing themselves closer to confrontation, with Hezbollah and Russia involved also.

But most ominously North Korea has taken center stage in our world with missile and bomb tests that have shaken the USA and much of the world.

Now it has become time to make decision on what can be done in that situation.

Of course many of us know weapons of mass destruction need to be mass destructed for the health of our planet.

But given the current situation, the wise option is to sit down with them, recognize their nuclear power,  and work out a solution similar to what was done with Russia during the Cold War.

The other option, a military one, will almost for sure touch off a World War, and begin to destroy the current economy.

There is no more sitting on the fence of sanction implementations for North Korea.

We are moving into a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius. In that Age there is equality among cultures, countries, and ways of living.   There is a multipolar power sharing and resource sharing world building.

Already China and Russia are determined to changing the current economy from one led by the American dollar and America.

Obama’s presidency began the process of leveling the world’s playing field and honoring the differences in people. He did as much as he could do considering the power of the Deep State’s Military Industrial Complex.

Now Trump challenges that global way of connecting us all.  He represents America keeping power over the world as a Superpower.

On a deeper level those days are done.  Now let’s hope the awakening to that fact happens without war and complete economic downfall.

We must collectively choose from our Higher Selves, not our ego selves, or as Sun in Aquarius Abraham Lincoln suggested- let our Better Angels lead the way.

Is our country and world sufficiently awakened to our Higher Self, the one aligned with the Age of Aquarius?

If not, and we will know soon, we will face our collective shadows in war and severe economic downturn.

As we each align with the energies of the Universe and our Higher Selves now, we need to then surrender our ego control and let this all play out as it will.

We can do our part by being in our Higher Self’s connection with Love and Truth.  And we can spread that wonderful energy to others we connect with.

And of course our letting go of the old programming from family and society,  helps everyone else to do so also- as a new trail is being blazed for everyone who awakens.

We also choose in this new consciousness to find balance and equality of male and female, yin and yang, dark and light, as true Nature requires.

 And that balance can be found at the Autumn Equinox on September 22 at 4:02 PM.

Autumn Equinox as always begins Sun in Libra time of year.

Autumn Equinox brings a perfect balance of light and dark minutes of the day, which is a signal for all opposites to join in equal balance.

After the moment of perfect balance, dark minutes of the day begin to increase, finding their optimum at Winter Solstice.

Libra time of year is a time to enjoy beauty and balance, symmetry and equality.  There is more emphasis on relationships and love.

Libra is also about the scales of justice, and knowing what is fair and just.  Libra can see both sides of an issue, which makes them great mediators but often as a result indecisive.

Libra is a sign of social graces, which can often preclude passion and primal desires and natural instincts.

Jupiter has been in Libra this past year, so we have been expanding our desires to make relationship, and to find equal balance and moderation in our consciousness and ways of living.

In a few weeks, however, expansive Jupiter will shift into Scorpio for a year.  Starting on October 10, we thus will begin to expand our desire nature, our sexual needs, and most importantly find what gives us passion in our life.

Scorpio also, in the process of reactivating our more primal instincts, may take out of slumber our repressed or suppressed lower emotions.

Rage, jealousy, envy, contempt, and just general meanness are the worst potential expressions of Scorpio.

Suppressed or repressed earlier traumatic events and wounding will tend to come to the surface where we can from our souls,  relive and at the same time release some of those old traumas.

As Jupiter goes into Scorpio, we will get more clear instinctually on what direction to take.  We will know from our passions what we want to do next.

In the world, events are more likely to be ignited after Jupiter goes into Scorpio, events that can be referred back to the Eclipse season we just passed through.

But for now gather yourself, investigate what needs to be investigated, fix, heal, repair, simplify and find order (Virgo).  And then also find the right balance, be more kind, focus on relationships and relating, look for love and beauty in everything (Libra).

Till next week,

Leo

BTW- the world will not be ending or destroyed on September 23 as many are proclaiming.  How many times have we heard that the world is ending?

I will be leading a class on Transforming Consciousness into the Golden Age of Aquarius on September 23 at noon- 6 PM Pacific Coast Time in Sedona Arizona.  Astrology and your own chart will be a big part of the process.

Taking it to the Edge and Astrology Forecast September 10-16

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are coming up to the beginning of the 4th quarter phase of the lunar cycle on Wednesday this week.

That will be the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21.

That 4th and last quarter ends at the New Moon in Virgo on September 20, to be closely followed on September 22 by the Autumn Equinox.

This effectively ends Eclipse Season.  So the enormous intensity brought on by this Eclipse Season begins to subside.

Now that does not mean that important events in the world will end at that point.  In fact important events that have reference to what happened during Eclipse Season will likely unfold within 6 months from when Eclipse Season ends.

And it has been a most powerful Eclipse Season, with both natural and man made events erupting in the world, centered in large part in America.

North Korea and the United States have been frighteningly showing the world the potential danger of war and even nuclear war.

The natural disasters have been exceedingly dangerous ones.  Since the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21 we have experienced a devastating hurricane, Hurricane Harvey  moving through much of Texas.

There also is an equally large hurricane about to engulf Florida, Hurricane Irma.  And 2 more hurricanes have been developing in the Atlantic Ocean, Jose and Katrina.

These are said to be some of the biggest hurricanes in many years.

And in Mexico, an especially powerful 8.1 earthquake struck last week. This is one of the largest earthquakes in many years.

So the predicted natural disasters occurred as did the war threats and culture war threats during Eclipse Season.

Personal lives have been in uproar also, as many people have been coming to crossroads moments in their lives, or at least they are experiencing important turning point events or decisions that need to be made.

We have undoubtedly entered a most difficult transition time between one chapter of our lives to a whole New Chapter of our lives.

The old “contracts” or agreements we have made with others or with ourselves (spoken or unspoken) have expired, and we are deciding at a deep soul level if there is a new agreement to be made, a new birth into this New Chapter.

I am seeing this most especially in important relationships or marriages. The life or heart of the old form has been dying, and people are trying to see if there is new life to fuel their continued existence with one another.

And globally, old world relationships are not working as before, and thus new alliances are forming, a more multi polar world is developing, beyond super powers or dominating empires.

Russia, China, the United States, North Korea, Israel, Iran, Saudi Arabia etc. are looking for what countries or cultures to bond with as allies now.

This is similar to what happened prior to the world wars of the 20th century. And now we hope and pray another way is found to build alliances this time.

It is even more important now how this shuffling of alliances plays out, because we are so close to the Age of Aquarius’ need of Diversity within Unity; but also because there are now weapons of mass destruction that have been developed by so many countries now.

In personal lives everyone is searching for heart connections and soul connections with others, yet also looking for an authentic expression of oneself.

In that process we are found doubting previously considered solid relationships, jobs, and homes, as well as reconsidering how we each perceive ourselves and life itself.

Our beliefs and inner paradigms are shifting, shifting in order to make sense of our world now, in order to survive and evolve in conjunction with this New World we are all moving into.

The natural disasters and man made threats to our existence are pushing us to feeling our vulnerability to things that are greater than we each are.

As a result some are getting tougher to feel more able to deal with the threats, but many are also joining with others to help one another through these difficult times.

Look at the reaction of people to the natural disasters: many are going out of their way to assist others who are losing their homes or loved ones. Empathy and love between people are growing as a result.

We need to know we are all in this together, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or lifestyles.

More events will unfold to assist us in banding together as One Earth Family.

But of course some will persist in believing the old paradigm of “survival of the fittest” understood as I need to conquer you in order to survive and evolve.   And then I need to take all the goodies for myself at your expense.

We know now that survival and evolution of our species is dependent on our knowing we are all connected and working together. Otherwise blowing each other up is in our future (or non future).

Remember as Eclipse Season begins to wind down, that the powerful natural disasters that have been happening are centered around the USA- where the Total Solar Eclipse travelled exclusively over. And the other big one, the 8.0 Earthquake struck not far away in Mexico.

Mars in Trump’s chart was triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse. And the USA natal Moon in Aquarius was closely opposed by that same eclipse.  So was North Korea’s Saturn very closely conjunct the eclipse.

Israel and Netanyahu  also experienced a triggering of Mars. I did not know what that meant until this last week when Israel staged it biggest military exercises of the last 20 years.  And they dropped a bomb on Syria to stop supposed chemical weapons from being delivered and in the process killed 2 people. The Middle East is now susceptible to major conflict as a result.

Our world and personal lives are going through such dramatic transformation now.

But in that process people are waking up, looking for new ways, opening their minds and hearts, listening better, developing greater empathy and compassion, and moving toward lives more heartfelt, soul based, and authentic.

Being human has never been an easy journey, at least not for long. We are here for reasons other than material gain and material success and contentedness.

We are quite a fascinating species.

We have hearts and souls and complicated interesting minds. Unlike any other Earth creatures we can paint beautiful pictures, compose music that touches and moves us deeply, develop spiritual perspectives, find meaning for our lives, create masterful technology, mass communication devices, mass transportation, and find love in our hearts and empathy for one another.

Yet unlike any other creatures we also kill for reasons other than eating, we hate and control, we judge and lack trust.

Our next frontier is the most important of all I believe.  That is seeing ourselves as one family embracing and respecting our differences. We must leave the false notion that there is something wrong with us, having original sin, or some other fatal flaw. Our self loathing and judgments have much to do with what we have done to hurt one another.

We are beautiful beings learning how to grow and evolve together. And unfortunately we have the habit of taking things to the edge before we are convinced we must change and transform.

Pray that we do not take things too far to the edge this time. Let us instead more gracefully awaken to who we are evolving into to be aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week from Sedona Arizona,

Leo

Eclipse Triggers, Mercury Direct, Full Moon and Astrology Forecast September 3-9

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 2, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week brings potentially big shifts and breakthroughs, as well as the beginning of increased clarity and direction.  This is because Mars and Mercury (which is slowing down to go back Direct Tuesday the 5th) are triggering the August 21st Total Solar Eclipse New Moon at 28+ degrees of Leo.  

North Korea has just ignited a most powerful hydrogen bomb right at this point of trigger. This will bring a shift into a new chapter of North Korea’s relationship with the USA and the world.

Big shifts, breakdowns and breakthroughs, many quite positive however, have been happening all through this Eclipse Season.

There have been very strong breakthroughs out of old stuck patterns and old ways in people’s lives happening in abundance since that Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21.

This has been a New Moon with new beginnings on steroids, blasting us fast forward into a New Chapter of our personal and collective lives.

Breakthroughs have been happening in many facets of human life, but most importantly there have been breakthroughs in consciousness, attitudes, and ways of seeing oneself and others.

We are being “groomed” for the coming challenges in our world, challenges that intend to transform us more fully into the consciousness that is needed in a new paradigm and age.

Our level of empathy is growing, as is our ability to get more insight, to see all the connections and meaning, to open our hearts to more love, and to see beyond the programmed veils that have hidden truth. We also are becoming more empowered, more aligned with our true and authentic selves.

Of course for many this Eclipse Season has been quite difficult and challenging, and sometimes very painful.  But the potential gifts are transformation, expanded consciousness, and the aforementioned breakthroughs out of old stuck patterns and ruts.

If you can see this Eclipse Season, with its intensity and difficulty, as opportunities to transform; you will then possess the bigger picture that will facilitate positive transformation out of victim consciousness.

You know you want to leave old ways that have become limiting and often quite boring. But it can only happen if you are willing to leave your comfort zone, let in what likely feels more chaotic, and trust the process of the Universe and your deeper Soul.

Without that trust and faith, you will fall into darker, more cynical places- filled with great fear and rage.

You may then toxically empower yourself or disempower yourself from a place of the “wronged one”. You may then become a revenge perpetrator on others who you feel deserve it for what they have done. Or you will take away your life force and confidence.

There is no one to look down on or to make the enemy.   There is no one to look up to and make a god who we are separate from.

As we acknowledge and own all parts of ourselves, and integrate those parts into greater wholeness inside; we then make compassionate connection with all our human family.

No we do not have to be expert in this process, but we do need to be following the path to get there.  As we follow that path, we will get more and more opportunity to awaken, transform and go further in our consciousness and ways of living.

This is not meant to be a road to sainthood and you do not need to totally conquer anger or fear. These are normal human instincts and feelings, that in moderation help us to empower ourselves (anger) or be more careful (fear).

But over reacting  to situations that are not immediately dangerous to our health or life can be worked with, healed and transformed. Even serious trauma can be transformed into healthier responses with the right healing.

These Eclipse Seasons can be opportune times to break through old ways, as we are then often given situations that are intense, bring back old wounds or traumas, and thus are ripe for positive transformation.

As Mars and Mercury this week trigger the Total Solar Eclipse from August 21, core issues may intensify.  See this as part of the process of transformation, and you will not get pulled into emotional and mental places that have ego stories that have kept you stuck.

On Tuesday September 5 Mercury goes back Direct, which brings a turning point into renewed clarity and direction.

But this time Mercury Direct will be more complicated and confusing than usual, as the Sun opposes nebulous Neptune the night before; Mars enters Virgo on the 5th; and there is a Full Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune on the 6th at 3:03 AM EDT.

Mars in Virgo brings a critical eye seeking order, as does the Sun in Virgo at this Full Moon; but the Full Moon in Pisces may add to the confusion.

There is a need now to surrender, trust, and have faith all is happening as it should and for a reason. This attitude is aligned with the highest potential of a Pisces Full Moon.

If you see the glass of life as half full now, not half empty, you will then be more able to trust and have faith as needed.

Allow the process to unfold, without rigid agenda or tight mind and heart, and give a few days to a week to find the clarity and direction you need.

This Eclipse Season with Mercury Retrograde has had many people looking over their past, sometimes as if their past is flashing before their eyes.

That is because the death of the old and birth of the new is more powerful than usual.

And the shakeups in the world have been more intense than usual and have brought back old times and past issues.

Charlottesville brought back old hatreds and prejudice from the Civil War and Civil Rights movement.

North Korea has brought back fears and hatreds from the Cold War with Russia, and fears of nuclear annihilation.

Hurricane Harvey has reminded us of Katrina with its horrible death and destruction and Presidential cluelessness.

Trump’s whitehouse dramas have brought back memories of Richard Nixon corruption and impeachment proceedings.

All these events during Eclipse Season are here for us to remember our past, clean out the old, learn from that past, and transform and evolve further.

Abuse of power, prejudice, hatred, and feared enemies are all issues we need to transform in order to survive and evolve into what is needed for an Age of Aquarius.

And white men are not the enemy either, to be hated and looked down on.

Yes they are needing to leave their entitlement and old comfort place of power in America and the world.

That is happening and no one can stop it.  Equality and Diversity within Unity are happening right before our eyes, even if the wounded and dying old world bear who has ruled the old world is raging in his death throes.

He will bring down anyone on his way down, so get out of the way by staying out of his dramas, his rage and fears.  Your own rage and over reacting fears will bring you down too.

Important world events will continue now, and keep coming all year long.

But you can still keep strong focus and awareness on your own real life and its grounded rituals now.  Sun and Mars in Virgo will help you in than effort, as well as keeping your life simple.  Bring order to your life, fix what needs fixing, and that will keep you aligned with Virgo energy.  Get ready for Autumn, get the kids back to school.

The lion of Leo time roared, now the grounded humility of Virgo wants to take its place.

Take care,

Leo

Continuing Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast August 27- September 2.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 26, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Most people reported that they experienced a great rising of intensity at the Total Solar Eclipse last Monday the 21st.

Many others experienced breakthroughs in their lives, some rather dramatically.

Others felt the changing winds, knew a big New Chapter in their lives had begun, but yet feel more is to come.

And of course we are in the middle of Eclipse Season, lasting till around Autumn Equinox.

After the Total Eclipse on Monday, a few days later on Friday August 25, Hand of Time Saturn went direct, showing us “fated” events as time started clicking forward again..

Later that day Hurricane Harvey hit the coast of Texas, the biggest Hurricane of the decade.

Also later that day North Korea blasted off two missiles.   This was at an important turning point in the conflict between the United States and North Korea.  It shows us that this conflict is not over.

With the second, last, and most important Eclipse, The Total Solar Eclipse in our rear view mirrors, and with Saturn going Direct, we now have arrived in the New Chapter.

Nevertheless, next weekend, Labor Day weekend in the USA, will bring us another important turning point in personal and world affairs in this New Chapter.

Before that, on Tuesday August 29 there is a 2nd quarter Moon in Sagittarius.

That second quarter Moon has the Sun in Virgo, which it entered last Tuesday just after the Eclipse, square to the Moon in Sagittarius.

So whatever sense of grounded reality we may have experienced since the Eclipse, we will shift again into higher gears of movement forward.

And then next weekend, a turning point weekend,  Mars will trigger the degree in Leo where the Total Eclipse ignited-  28+ degrees of Leo. And it will be exactly trine transiting Uranus, a planet of breakthrough and radical change.

So with that trigger, in effect the Eclipse “comes back”.  More is shaking and shifting. Also what started earlier in Eclipse Season will be stirred up again.

And that Mars placement makes contact again with Trump’s Mars and Rising sign, North Korea’s Saturn, Israel’s Mars, and their Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Mars also.

The North Korea issue will be resurfacing again..

Nothing big happened with Israel in the public eye, but there must be something brewing there.  There is a decent chance we will see something more obvious around the Mars trigger next Saturday September 2.

Then on the 3rd of September Mercury, slowing down and getting ready to go back Direct on September 5, makes conjunction with Mars, adding another trigger to the last Eclipse.  Mercury pretty much stays at that degree for a few days.

All of this is happening in opposition to the USA natal Moon in Aquarius.  That natal Moon in Aquarius represents the Bill of Rights for America, its greater social consciousness.

It is the principle of equality and Diversity in Unity that is the promise from the beginnings of the United States.

With all the triggered planetary energies being in Leo, the conflict is between Leo’s need for personal power with Aquarius’s need for group or community consciousness.

Trump, and that kind of person in power, will be in conflict with the voice of the people or the voice of democracy.

In your personal life use the best of what Leo represents:  heartfelt expression, having fun,  being creative and spontaneous, spreading positive hopeful energy

After the Leo triggers on the 2nd/3rd of September, Mercury is slowing down, stationing to go back Direct on September 5.

The couple of days surrounding that change of direction can be disorienting and even confusing.

Mercury was changing directions on election night in November 2000.  Gore and Bush were running for President, and the media kept going back and forth declaring a different winner of the election all night long. And it was weeks later when Bush was declared to be President.

Disorientation and confusion are usually not that much when Mercury changes directions, but keep in mind around September 5 that clarity does not magically appear right away when Mercury is going back Direct.

In fact it could take up to a week or so to see complete clarity and to recognize what direction things are moving toward.

So later this coming week into next week there will be shifts and shakeups again.

These shifts are all meant to take you out of stuck places, and give you open doorways into new realms, new consciousness, new chapters of life.

This Eclipse Season will be looked back on and remembered as an important time period in our lives.

More important world events are on the way during Eclipse Season and soon afterwards,

The economy will face a big downturn soon.  It will likely begin this Autumn or maybe the winter of 2017/18.

2018 and beyond show a severe downturn.   The current economic system is transforming.  The candidacy of Bernie Sanders was not a freak happening.  It showed us where we are headed economically.  The Occupy Wall Street movement was a harbinger of coming times.

People on the left and right believe we need to tax the wealthy and big corporations more, and make the economy more fair for all the people.

Health plans will continue to fail until we create a Universal Health plan, as so many western nations already have.

Difficult coming economic challenges will give motivation to notions of sharing the wealth.

As we make these important changes in our world, each of us will also be making big changes in our personal lives and in our families.

The old programming from an old paradigm no longer applies, if it ever did.

We need to retrain our minds and hearts and consciousness to the knowledge of connections.  We have spent too much time and energy fighting against others, believing that is the way to a better life. We have wasted too much time believing everything is random and meaningless, or else believing that some father god is who we answer to and who gives us meaning.

Joining with others is the way forward now, even as we honor our distinct and unique individuality. Knowing all is connected and meaningful is the way now.  We can now know that love and truth are the Universe’s way to lead us to our human evolving into an Age of Aquarius

When we lose the programming from an old paradigm, we realize connections in everything, we find meaning, we naturally create win/win situations, we find signs and symbols from the Universe that show us our way.

Let go of the old beliefs that limit your freedom to decide for yourself what is right or wrong, what is true or not, what is best for our world and human family.

As liberated humans we will evolve and co-create the Age of Aquarius.

It is going to be a rough ride at times, but we are ready for the challenge.

Take care,

Leo

Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo and Astrology Forecast August 20-26

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 19, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The long awaited Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo happens this week Monday August 21. Though this eclipse represents an extremely important passage for our human family, I wish people had not turned it into another Super Bowl type event.

This Eclipse opens a portal into a big New Chapter of life on Planet Earth, a New Chapter that will take us through an important part of our transition into the Age of Aquarius.

Quite obviously this New Chapter brings with it much turmoil and challenge, to put it lightly; but this New Chapter will also bring many great awakenings, heart openings, a greater sense of connection and meaning, and new vistas of truth beyond what we have been programmed to believe about ourselves and our world.

So it would be good at the time of the eclipse to meditate and pray, to visualize what this new world will be like both collectively and individually.

All new moons are good times to pray, meditate and visualize; but this one being a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon gives this new moon a far greater authority to shape the world we will live in.

Of course some things are already in place and are meant to be, but much else is open to the co-creation from our human family.

We are definitely in for some turmoil, chaos, and darkness, but the intensity and length I believe can be changed with our intentions, actions, and level of evolving.

Out in the world leading up to this Total Eclipse, there were a few intense conflicts and potential wars that have been playing out.

There is a culture war that was triggered into greater force in Charlottesville, and is continuing in Boston and other places now.

There has been an increase this past week in Islamic State terror attacks: 2 in Spain; 1 in Finland, and 1 in Russia.

And of course North Korea has been burning with talk of war, though this last week rageful talk lessened appreciably.

But on the date of the eclipse, by no mere random coincidence, the USA and South Korea will be active in practicing war games together. North Korea wants those games to be cancelled as it sees them as threatening actions right near its border. And it expects the USA and South Korea to reciprocate the gesture of North Korea not sending promised missiles toward Guam.

This is a big turning point on Monday at the eclipse. If the USA and South Korea go through with their war games, North Korea will likely send some powerful message in return. And then we are back where we were a couple weeks ago and probably even much worse.

The culture wars’ recent rise in emotional temperature, while we are experiencing a most chaotic, unstable, and unpredictable Trump presidential administration, shows us a splitting of America, not dissimilar to the Civil War.

And Islamic State is getting more geared up for western attacks now, as it loses more and more of its territory in Syria and Iraq.

America and the Western World are facing a huge bout of dissolution during our journey into an Age of Aquarius.

The Aquarian values of America’s Bill of Rights are being threatened by recent events. America has it natal moon (its inner values) in Aquarius.

What happened in Charlottesville is showing us the needed transformation of those Aquarian values. “All Men are Created Equal…” needs an update and transformation.

How about Women, how about men and women who are not just white northern Europeans, which were the vast majority of those who populated the colonies here in America when the Constitution and Bill of Rights were written?

How about other countries and cultures all around the world? How about those who have alternative sexual orientations?

All People are Created equal.

So America is in the process of a transformation of its values, its Aquarian values, both from the inside and from the outside of its borders.

And when Rome lost its way it decayed on the inside, and was threatened by those outside its borders.

Now we have an opportunity to evolve into an equal member of this world, beyond Empire and Superpower status.

So inside ourselves we are letting go of notions of intrinsic superiority or inferiority; of some deserving more than others; of believing life is a battle for survival over others; and that our souls belong to and are beholden to a church or a nation or our employers or our families.

We are responsible for our own souls and their relationship to collective Soul, collective Spirit, and the Universe.

Allow yourself to feel this powerful Eclipse turning point for our consciousness and lives here on Earth.

Trust the Universe and its greater plan of a changing of ages.

Be open and ready for greater knowledge of our human truths and human heritage.   Allow your heart and mind to be open to extraterrestrial origins and potential extraterrestrial visitation. It is coming.

Open your mind and heart to experiencing new frequencies and dimensions, new ways to view our human experience.

Have faith all is happening aligned with Divine and Earthly wisdom, as we move into a New Age of Aquarius.

This Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo will be at 2:30 PM EDT.  It will have Uranus, the planet of great awakenings, in close trine to that Eclipse.  Uranus will add greater energy to the Eclipse and desires to break away and break free.

Also this week Saturn is slowing down as it is about to go Retrograde this coming Thursday August 24.

As it changes direction from Retrograde to Direct movement, its energy of contraction and gravity fills our psychic air space.

Going Direct, Saturn gives a sense of Time starting up again, of predestination, of “meant to be”,  of responsibility, of doing what needs to be done.

This Saturn shifts directions at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius– almost exactly opposite the USA natal Mars in Gemini, almost exactly conjunct Trump’s Moon in Sagittarius and opposite his Sun in Gemini, which tellingly is conjunct the USA natal Mars.

And Trump’s natal Ascendant and Mars are closely conjunct the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon at 28+ degrees of Leo.  This Eclipse is also opposite the aforementioned USA Moon in Aquarius.

So Donald Trump and the USA are very connected to this Eclipse.  Will we get in a war with North Korea?   Will Trump get impeached?  Will the culture wars turn into a Civil War again?

Or will the Eclipse turning point show us the way to peace with North Korea, and a turning down of the temperature of the culture wars?

The turning point moment is the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21at 2:30 PM.

Remember that Mercury is still Retrograde then, so do not jump to any conclusions or try to force your mind into finding quick solution.   Linear thinking is not at its best now.

Time “starts up again” with Saturn Direct on August 24.

Mercury goes back Direct on September 5.  

This Eclipse season ends at the New Moon in Virgo on September 19/20, close to the Autumn Equinox on September 22.

important World events can happen anytime during that time frame of August 21-September 20.   And yet many other world events with reference to Eclipse Season will happen after Eclipse Season ends on September 20, including great economic challenges, which we will talk about later.

In your personal life, be prepared for both world and personal changes that will transform your consciousness and transform your life.

You will need to leave your comfort zones and open to the new energies wanting to pour through this Portal into a New Chapter of our lives.

It is natural now to feel out of balance and not knowing where things are headed. Therefore trust is important now, trust we live in a meaningful and loving Universe, even when things are really difficult.

This ride can bring great joy and fun too, if you can let go of your need to control from your fears.  Please do not buy into the dramas now that can evoke great fear and hatred of those who are different than you like Trumpites.

Life and evolution are moving beyond these dinosaurs who are moving toward a last hurrah on their way to the dustbin of history.  They do not have control of our future.  We can only hope that we are not taken through too much darkness and suffering on our way to the Age of Aquarius.

You can help if you do not get consumed by great fear or hatred.  Those traits perpetuate the old ways, as do beliefs that the abusively powerful, greedy, mean spirited, hateful, bigoted, self serving people of the world inherit the Earth.

If you believe they will continue to dominate our world, you ought to question your deeper values, and question what you believe about humanity and the Universe.

Take care,

Leo

Shadow Boxing and Astrology Forecast August 13-19

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It has been very intense this last week in the world and in many of our personal lives and emotions too.

It has been very frightening for many people, as the leaders of the USA and North Korea do their macho struts with one another, with we earthlings put in the shit storm of their narcissistic rage.

From a bigger picture, however, we are being taken through a dark passage of labor pains on the way to the Age of Aquarius

So now our lives are being taken out of our comfort zones, as Eclipse Seasons do,  and this one is much more intense than usual.

Breakthroughs in our consciousness are more likely now, as are breakdowns too.

We are being prepared for greater and greater transformation of life on Planet Earth entering the Age of Aquarius.   

We travel this week through the 4th quarter and final week before the much anticipated Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 21, which travels over the United States for the first time since 1918, the last year of World War I.

As we predicted several months ago, this current Eclipse Season brings the likelihood of war, at the very least the threat of major war.

We also let you know that Donald Trump would have his Mars in Leo from his natal chart triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo.  Mars is a planet of action, force, and yes war.

We did not give you any indication of the North Korean leader’s chart because there are different dates given for his birth.

But we did let you know that North Korea’s natal Saturn, from its founding date,  would be almost exactly triggered by this Total Solar Eclipse.  Saturn represents something that must be faced, that which one cannot escape. It also represents grave situations and often a predetermined fate.

We suggested that Israel and Israeli leader Netanyahu would also have the Mars in each of their charts triggered, as both have their Mars’ at 28 degrees of Leo, exactly where the Solar Eclipse will be on August 21.

We do have another month or so before this current Eclipse Season ends, so we will still look closely at what may happen in the Middle East.

Another “war” that is raging now in this Eclipse Season is a culture war.  That culture war is happening at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville Virginia.

White Lives Matter, Nazi, and KKK haters are protesting the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee, the most important confederate general from the Civil War.

Thomas Jefferson was the founder of University of Virginia.  Thomas Jefferson was the main inspiration for the USA Bill of Rights, which included the idea that “all men are created equal”.

And on the contrary Thomas Jefferson was a slave holder.  What did they really mean by “all men are created equal”?

These White Supremacist protests have been countered by protests from Black Lives Matter and others who strongly object to the White Nationalists.

Hundreds have shown up for the protests and violence has been breaking out. Three people were killed and many others injured.

All these wars are representative of old world paradigms that if continued will destroy us all.  The possibility of another world war hangs over our heads now.

Each of us is being urgently asked to release any connections we have to a world that believes life is merely survival of the fittest, which has created the idea that enemies must be conquered and destroyed.  And that old world has developed weapons of mass destruction created to ruthlessly destroy those enemies.

Hundreds of thousands of human beings, mostly innocent civilians, were killed by the atom bombs dropped by the United States on two Japanese cities to bring an end to World War II in August 1945.

Now many countries have weapons of mass destruction, as does North Korea now.

We are at a most urgent turning point as we approach the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21.  

Each of us must leave the belief system of superior versus inferior; have and have nots: perpetrator and victim; and the notion that those who are starkly different are enemies who need to be destroyed.

We are all part of the same human family and need to learn to coexist with one another peacefully.

We are moving toward an Age of Aquarius, but collectively right now it is feeling like we are entering a dark night of the soul before that new age fully arrives.

Many of us have already faced many of our individual demons and shadows during dark times.  We have then arisen into a new paradigm in our consciousness.

We must lead the way, and must leave behind hatred and violence from our hearts.

Of course we may get very angry at times, but do not need to be hateful and violent.

The Age of Aquarius is an age of Diversity Within Unity, so each of us must honor our own and others’ unique differences, but still know we are united by the circle of Oneness like the Yin/Yang symbol.

I am not sure how bad it will need to get before we learn our collective lessons now, so to transform our collective Consciousness to that of Love and Truth from the Age of Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season is a major turning point to let us know the direction we moving toward now as a human family.

This coming week is preparing us for the Total Solar Eclipse as we enter the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle begun at the Leo New Moon on July 23.

4th quarters are times of reflection, gathering, centering, and preparing for the New Moon, which this time will be a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21.

As we go through this 4th quarter we sense endings and goodbyes, we prepare and get ready.  But unlike most 4th quarters this one will be intense in anticipation for the Eclipse New Moon.

That is because this coming Eclipse New Moon in Leo is a much bigger new beginning than the usual new moon or even the usual Solar Eclipse New Moon.

This truly signifies an open portal into a New Chapter of our lives, on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And it may tend to be more confusing this week prior to the Eclipse New Moon, and in fact up until September 5. 

That is because Mercury is going Retrograde tonight Saturday August 12. It will last until September 5.  Then it will take another week or so to come fully out of any fogs in our minds.

So August 21 is when the portal opens into this big and important New Chapter of our lives; then September 5 is when clarity and direction are greater when Mercury goes Direct.

Then on September 19/20 at the New Moon in Virgo just before the Autumn Equinox; the New Chapter is made manifest.  This Eclipse Season ends.

New events that are  connected to the meaning of the portal opening at the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21 will have the green light to manifest.

It is best to meditate as often as possible, to be in nature as often as possible.  If you are drawn into great fear and inner darkness when watching or reading the news, keep your watching and reading the news to a minimum or even not at all.  It is important now to keep our emotions and minds clear from toxins and distortions, especially now with Mercury Retrograde.

Mercury Retrograde brings us to reflect on people and memories from the past.  It also helps us to see everything from a different angle and to question our previous decisions or direction.  But don’t change those directions or plans until clarity appears when Mercury goes back Direct again.

And of course Mercury Retrograde can play tricks with our minds, and being aware of that will help you to not get so easily taken in by those tricks of the mind.

With the intensity or the Total Solar Eclipse combined with Mercury Retrograde, it is important to not jump to conclusions or be impulsive.  Surrender to the process, let go of set agendas and being too controlling.   Trust all is happening as it must, and be patient.

Keep in mind that all that is happening is part of the bigger picture of transformation and transition into an Age of Aquarius.

Stay out of grave fear and hatred so you can center yourself, remain calm, and be connected and aligned with your Higher Self and the Universe.

From that place inside you will more likely see symbols and signs that show the way, experience synchronicity that brings magic and clarity, and see the connections that help you to know all is OK.

Love and Truth are guiding the way.  Fear tries to challenge that way.

Ego is not the enemy of our Higher Self, in fact some is needed for personal confidence and empowerment.

But ego must be the servant of our Higher Self not the leader.  When Higher Self is leading the way we know all is connected and happening for a reason.  When ego is leading the way we feel all as separate, in opposition without unity, and filled with fear and open to hatred for those not serving our ego needs.

Next week we will get even more into the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo that will happen next week.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses: There will be a follow up video within the next couple of weeks

Till next week,

Leo

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, Mercury Retrograde, and Astrology Forecast August 6-12.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on August 5, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week brings us important energy shifts as we experience a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius and Mercury Retrograde.

On Monday August 7 there is the first of 2 eclipses this August:  A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius at 2:11 PM EDT.

This is not a total lunar eclipse and it will not be seen in the United States as it happens during daylight hours all across the North American continent.

The Sun will be in Leo and the Moon exactly opposite in Aquarius.  

Lunar Eclipses are always Full Moons, and have the Sun and Moon exactly opposite one another. The shadow of the Earth covers the Moon creating the eclipse.

The Sun will be at 15+ degrees of Leo and the Moon will be at 15+ degrees of Aquarius. In this Full Moon Mars will be conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon, as it will be at 11+ degrees of Leo.  Mars will add more forcefulness to the event.

So if you have any planets in the mid degrees of fixed signs Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, or Scorpio you will be more affected than others.  And of course the Leo and Aquarius planets will be the most important.

This is a Full Moon, so those of you who are sensitive to the energies of Full Moons will be especially energized as eclipses have much more energy and power than the usual Full Moons.

I do not expect this Eclipse to be as important or strong as the next one,  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.  But it is still strong and important.

Eclipses “intend” to shake us up, take us off our usual balance, and create conditions for breakthroughs and awakenings, or for breakdowns.

An issue to be aware of with this Lunar Eclipse will be about expressing and knowing one’s heart (Leo), or instead using one’s head or mind for knowing (Aquarius).

As an example if someone was out choosing a car to buy, would they choose the one that they love because of its beauty and gadgets or would they choose the one they think is better for the environment and for lower gas mileage?

Aquarius is not only more leaning toward the mind, it is also leaning toward what is more socially conscious or better for the community. And it also tends to want that which is different, not necessarily what is considered “normal”.

Leo is more concerned with what opens its heart, is more popular, and perhaps gives it a better image. It likes people or things that it “falls in love” with.

Neither way is better, just different, as we need to trust both our heads and hearts.

Globally there may be conflicts between that which a strong leader demands (Leo) versus that which the larger community demands (Aquarius).

Aquarius sees the strong leader taking the power away from the people.  Leo sees the community of “equals” as never getting things done, indecisive, and without clear direction.

They need each other.

Pay attention to these issues playing out in your personal life and in the greater world. Watch for events in the 3-4 days surrounding this Eclipse for signs of what is wanting to break through or break down.    What is needing to be let go from the past, and what does one need to be open to that one is moving toward?

What represents the old chapter and old world, with its old patterns and beliefs; and what wants to open up that represents the new chapter in our lives?

Eclipses are good motivators for change and transformation.  Relationship issues may more likely show themselves than is usual. If so, then it is time to deal with things that have been pushed under the rug of our consciousness.

Wanting to more authentically express oneself may happen at this time.  And ego battles may be more likely now too.

The next Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21 will be even more likely to bring out these issues.

Not long after the frequencies of the Lunar Eclipse this week subside, we encounter Mercury Retrograde.

Mercury goes Retrograde in Virgo at 9 PM EDT on Saturday August 12.

Mercury will stay Retrograde during the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21, and will last until September 5 when it goes back Direct again. It will go into Leo during its Retrograde journey, which is where it will be at when it goes back Direct.

Like all Mercury Retrograde periods, our perceptions naturally change, as we tend to look at things differently.

We may give pause and shift our thinking about what we had previously planned on doing or saying; and we may then want to go in a different direction.

Do your best to wait until Mercury goes back Direct before making a final decision.  And it often takes a week or so after it goes Direct before real clarity appears.

And with Eclipse Season shaking things up and potentially creating more chaotic situations, the fogginess of Mercury Retrograde will make clarity and direction even more difficult to ascertain.

Let this Eclipse Season play itself out before jumping to conclusions. Of course we want to know what to do as soon as possible, but sometimes like now, we need to let the process unfold all the way.

Trust the Universe and your own Self to bring you what is right at the right time.

September should be as energized  and even more filled with important events than August, as the New Moon on August 21 opens up a whole new lunar cycle that reaches almost to the Autumn Equinox.

The Portal of new energy opens up on August 21 and many new experiences and events will follow.

But for now, we have a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon to experience, and it will bring a shift of energies, and also events that could be important.

Later this August we will encounter the Total Solar Eclipse with Mars not far away from it,  at close to the same time as Saturn going Direct,  Mars sextile Saturn and Jupiter, and Jupiter sextile Saturn.  

The last part of August will see the speed of change picking up steam. And this speed of change will continue through September and beyond as a Portal will be opened at the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21.

But for now, this week gives us an important Lunar Eclipse in Leo/Aquarius, that has within it Mars in Leo conjunct the Sun in Leo and opposite the Moon in Aquarius.

That will be followed closely by Mercury beginning its Retrograde movement on August 12.

Now is the time to let yourself let go and just take the roller coaster ride. It will start relatively slowly and pick up speed as it goes, with its most intense period being around the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses:

Till next week,

Leo
