Passions of Scorpio and Astrology Forecast October 23-29

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we begin to swim through deeper and darker soul waters- before we will experience an important New Moon next week.

The deeper waters will begin to open up Saturday October 22 at 7:46 PM EDT as the Sun moves into Scorpio.    

On the same day the last quarter Moon in Cancer takes us into finishing up the lunar cycle that began at the Libra New Moon of September 30.

A Libra New Moon is the first new moon of Autumn, and brings us the beauty of a metaphoric sunset.

The first part of Autumn shows us trees with vibrant colors and in many places relatively comfortable weather and temperatures.

Then after the Sun moves into Scorpio we begin to feel more deeply the darker and colder days that lead us into winter.

Scorpio is ruled by the planet Pluto, known mythologically as the guardian of the underworld.

That underworld is sometimes referred to as Hades, a place where we experience more primal passion.  Of course mainstream society and religion have demonized this instinctual place inside each of us.

Libra represents a civil way of relating.   Scorpio takes us into our deeper feelings that are more raw and real.

There is no attempt to refine our expressions with Scorpio, and instead it helps us to express our feelings that are more connected to our deeper truth.

This more primal expression can often cause emotional confrontation with others as we stop holding back what we are really feeling.

Therefore Scorpio can bring up what has been suppressed and even repressed sometimes.

Of course the longer something has been held down, the more powerful is its expression when let loose.

After the Sun goes into Scorpio this year, as the 4th quarter Moon begins, you will tend to go down deeper into your soul.

But the outer expression of the inner turmoil may wait until the Scorpio New Moon.

That Scorpio New Moon is Sunday October 30 at 1:38 PM EDT.

That Scorpio New Moon will soon be followed by Halloween/Samhain and even deeper spiritual realities will then be unearthed.

And not long after that the Election will be held on November 8.

I know it seems as if the worst nastiness has already been spit out; but with Scorpio Sun and especially New Moon in Scorpio on the way, things could get even more ugly.

Please realize that in more healthy people Scorpio represents a compassionate connection to those who suffer, an expression of deeper truth, a wide open third eye chakra, and the transformation process of death and rebirth.

But expressed in a toxic old world filled with toxic people, there is much mean spiritedness, demonizing, and obsession with getting revenge and destroying others.

For most of you this Scorpio time will allow you to express your deeper more instinctual truth and to empower yourself.

It will help you to release stuck emotions and dysfunctional patterns, and to go more deeply through the transformational process.

Perhaps it will get ugly sometimes between people, but that can bring about a catharsis followed by deeper connection between them.

Scorpio time of year can also bring each of us into what inspires our passion, and more deeply into our sexual nature too.

This week there may be a feeling of “coming down” and experiencing deeper truth inside, as we prepare and get ready for an important renewal at the Scorpio New Moon on October 30.

On the 28th/29th Mars will square Uranus, which may give you a “wake-up call” and help you to get out of stuck places and patterns.

In the greater world there could be some real surprise events or previously locked secrets opening up this week.

Soon this very intense and toxic Election season will end.

But then we face a whole new chapter of human life here in the United States, which will affect the whole world.

If Hilary Clinton is elected the system we are used to will continue, though be definitely different from Barack Obama’s government and world.

Scorpio Hilary Clinton will tend to be much more confrontational than Leo President Obama.

Gemini Donald Trump will tend to break down our feelings of well being,  and be much more unpredictable than President Obama.  You never know which Gemini twin will appear.

Either way, in the short term darker days are coming to America.  Nevertheless there is no stopping our transformation out of an old world and paradigm, as we move closer and closer to the Age of Aquarius.

In your own life do not let the world’s negativity affect your consciousness for long, or let it take you off your spiritual path.

If you need to turn off the TV or stop reading the political pages, do it.

Keeping up your meditation, and being with positive and supportive people will help you alot.

Letting go of old patterns of self deprecation or old patterns of self defeat will help.

Letting go of or spending less time with people who invalidate you will help.

Transformation and change have been accelerating over the last couple of years and time seems to be speeding by.

Therefore realize that all your recent challenges or difficulites are meaningful and meant to help you to release that which keeps you stuck and held in old patterns and belief systems.

Everything that has come into your life is preparing you for entering into a life that is more authentically aligned with your True Self; more connected to your deeper soul and its natural spiritual journey; more deeply connected to our sacred Earth and meaningful Universe; more sensitive to the varied ways of life of our human family; more aligned with the deeper Soul Source that connects All; and more awake to the reality that Truth and Love are the twin pillars of strength that govern our Universe.

Raising Consciousness and Astrology Forecast October 16-22

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 15, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we move closer to Scorpio time of year, intensity and primal passion are building inside our collective human souls.

The presidential election in the USA is already intense yet will get much more so.

Can you believe how low in consciousness Americans are going during this Election Season?

With so many important issues to discuss, the media and candidates are totally obsessed with sexual issues concerning Donald Trump and Bill Clinton.

Though to some extent it is good to address the women’s issues that have come out, and that are important for us as a human family;  this is more about character assassination and mean spirited attacks on one another.

It is no mere coincidence that Wikileaks is now increasing the email dirt against Clinton, while women have now decided a month before election to suddenly come out against Trump.

This is war- not an attempt to look at serious world and American issues.

As we get closer to the Sun moving into Scorpio on October 22 and a Scorpio New Moon on October 30, there are war drums beating that could potentially turn into World War III.

Russia and the USA are seriously challenging one another over Syria; while North Korea keeps testing more nuclear bombs; and forces gather to try to defeat the Islamic State in important Mosul Iraq.

If one tunes into all that or just feels deep inside the collective human unconscious, it is getting more and more apparent that something very big is about to explode in the world.

The only question in my mind is whether this will happen prior to the Election or after it.

Before the Election we have a Full Moon in forceful Aries conjuct Uranus on October 16;   aggressive Mars conjunct guardian of the underworld Pluto on October 19; Mars square Uranus on October 29; and a New Moon in Scorpio on October 30.

Any of these could be a trigger for an important world event, and at the least they suggest darker secrets to be exposed.

The Full Moon has the Sun in Libra opposing Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries at 12:23 AM October 16.

This annual Full Moon usually brings a conflict between desires to make relationship and make peace (Libra) versus a desire to be frank and assertive and thus potentially bring conflict (Aries).  Uranus conjunct the Moon in Aries suggests more weight toward impulsive forceful assertions.

In world events this brings the potential for serious conflict in the world over the next couple of weeks.

In personal lives this could be a wake-up call (Uranus) to transform old relationship patterns and to balance self empowerment (Aries) with a real listening in relationship (Libra).

Some people are very empowered already and need to be more sensitive to others.

Others are usually very accommodating of their mates or friends but tend to be rather small in asserting their own needs.

This Full Moon gives a real opportunity to strike a better balance and to change old relationship patterns that have proven not to work well.

Uranus gives the possibility to wake up outside the usual boxes of thought and to make the changes.

On Ocober 19 Mars conjuncts Pluto.  Conjunct means they share the same space in a 360 degree circle- in this case both at around 15 degrees of Capricorn.

Conjunct means they seek to bring their energies together and in this case in Capricorn. Capricorn wants to build or maintain solid structures or systems. Mars and Pluto together tend to create much potentially explosive power together. They can be ruthless when together.

This can create world conflicts through the ruthless power of the system, the state. or corporate or militay institutions.

In personal lives this can mean a powerful attempt to maintain or create controls.  Be careful this week not to get into power and control battles with others, as they could get nasty.

Instead use this Mars/Pluto aspect to make your self aware of authority or to assert your own authority.

On Saturday October 22 there is a 4th quarter Moon in Cancer as the Sun makes its annual move into Scorpio.

This may bring a feeling of being “brought down”.   Resist the temptation to get depressed, and instead use it to go deeper inside to see what is real and true for you.

Scorpio helps us to get in touch with deeper soul issues, to see inside the veils of secrecy.  It also helps us to find our passion and to honor our more primal instincts.

4th quarter Moons alert us to “wrap things up” and to prepare for the next new moon- this one to be in Scorpio on October 30.

We are in a collective transition into a whole new chapter of our lives.  The Election here in the USA is an obvious symbol that things are changing.

An important way to change is in consciousness.   If we keep trying to create enemies and keep trying to demonize others we stay locked in old consciousness.

Yes we need to create boundaries betwen what we believe and stand for, and what others believe and stand for.  But we do not need to make us the good guys, and them the bad guys.

It is a difference of opinion and lifestyle, not a reason to hate or destroy.

Election Madness and Astrology Forecast October 9-15.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 8, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The power of transformation grows stronger as we get closer the USA Presidential Election

As of today as I write this forecast on October 8, the outward signs all point to a Clinton victory on November 9.  Donald Trump got caught several years ago by a hot mic that recorded him making very disrespectful remarks about women.

Though he has suffered many such turning points in this election process, this one seems to be even worse, especially coming at this time so close to Election Day.

But there is still a full month and 2 debates to go before the Election.

As we wrote back about a year ago, Trump will win if there is some event just prior to the Election that threatens USA security- like a terrorist attack or market crash.

Additionally some huge negative revelation about Hilary Clinton by Wikileaks could have the same effect.

I truly believe there will be more twists and turns prior to Election Day, so no “counting chickens before they are hatched”.

This Election is a huge turning point for America and all the world.  President Obama will be seen as having had a big effect on our country and world, especially so in having the USA be a more equal member of the global community.

But transformation can be a journey of to and fro, in that sometimes there is a powerful feeling of new birth followed by a backtrack to old ways that cannot fully die before being starkly experienced again.

Will we go back toward more dysfunctional and toxic energies before we can embrace the new ways and new consciousness of the Age of Aquarius?

Sometimes a President leads us into a chapter of our lives that takes us backwards and forwards in transformation at the same time.

Nixon represented an America stuck in the past with corruption, bigotry, power abuse, and a desire to keep privilege in the same hands as before.

But that chapter of life that he represented also brought with it great transformational leaps forward as revolutionary energies brought a new world of greater equality for women, blacks, and others.

Nixon resigned from office and the war in Viet Nam ended.

So no matter who wins the Presidential Election this November, the powerful waves of Transformation will bring a tsunami of change.

No one person nor what they represent is bigger than the cycles of the Universe and Nature.

This does not mean it makes no difference who wins or that your vote does not count.

Who becomes president will affect the tone and quality of our human experience

Will transformation happen more gracefully or will it bring us more conflict and difficulty?

Right now we are entering the second quarter Moon of the lunar cycle that began at the Libra New Moon on September 30.

The next New Moon will be on October 30 in Scorpio.  That New Moon will begin the lunar cycle that will carry us through the Election.

On Election Day November 8 we will have just entered the second quarter Moon just as we are doing now.  The second quarter Moon now is in Capricorn and on November 7 it will be in Aquarius.

Second quarter moons challenge the theme created at the new moon, yet they also rev up our life engines another notch- waxing more on the way to the Full Moon- the climax and major turning point of the lunar cycle.

This month’s 2nd quarter Moon in Capricorn on Sunday October 9 challenges the balance and charm of Libra with energies of grounding gravity and seriousness.

On November 7, a day before the Election, the passionate instincts of Scorpio will be challenged by the more dispassionate detached intellect of Aquarius:   Passion or social consciousness?

This week, after the second quarter Moon in Capricorn, we move toward the Full Moon in Aries on October 16.

So this week you can move more forward with the waxing lunar energies. You will have more energy to get things done and be more active.

But where are you in your soul’s transformational journey, as the greater world is going through such major change?

Transformation seeks to bring us to greater authenticity and being true to our soul’s wishes.

But each of us has been conditioned and programmed to be a certain way and to live “normal” lives as society sees it.

But when we wake up with spiritual emergence, we learn we are unfulfilled by what we are doing and what we have chosen.

This can be a most liberating and at the same time most painful turning point in our lives.

We begin to see a new life more aligned with our true self and deeper needs, but we can also see that the process of transformation will require us to let go of security systems we have been accustomed to.

Our changing beliefs and transforming energy fields may then give us the feeling we are not as connected to people we love, or jobs that have given us security, or homes that have given us comfort.

A part of us may want to run away and start anew, while another part of us may want to cling even tighter to what we have known.

Always remember that a greater force is guiding the way and ultimately brings your soul’s true needs to your life.

It may not feel that way at first, as our ego is stubborn about what it wants for us.    But our deeper soul and the soul of the Universe knows what we need to move through karma, or to evolve, or to satisfy our purposes for our lifetime.

Society tells us to get a good paying job, to raise a family, to prepare for retirement, and to wait until you die.  Add some parties, some TV, and some vacations and what else is there?

But our deeper souls want love and truth, a life that is meaningful, self actualization, a sense of purpose, contribution, and connection; and a sense we are continually growing and evolving.

Our life is a sacred soul journey, not a random happening with no real meaning.

Know that this next month on the way to an election, with the major events we are likely to experience between now and then, is leading us through to the next chapter of life in America and on Earth.

And it is leading us ever closer to the Age of Aquarius.

Til next week,

Renewed Clarity Moving Forward and Astrology Forecast September 25- October 7

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Mercury is Direct again as we settle down into the beginning of Autumn 2016.   Be present now for how your thinking and feelings have been shifting.

The fog is lifting.  As it lifts, the Libra frequencies of Autumn bring consciousness to greater awareness of others, more empathy and sensitivity to what others are experiencing.

No matter how much we may try to deny it, relationships have such a great influence on how we feel about ourselves and life.

We may try to shut others out, but unless we live alone and never go outside our home, we will encounter and be influenced by others.

Too bad early education does not have classes on how to be in relationships, or how to be a parent, or how to be in a healthy marriage, etc.

We have developed so much on the material plane, travelled to the Moon, created amazing technology, created flying machines, cures for deadly diseases, and mass communication.

But we do not really know how to get along with one another, how to respect others’ lifestyles and religions and cultures and sexual orientations.

In America now there is a very angry culture war going on that is represented by the Presidential election.

Trump supporters are passionate about the more conservative values he represents for  them, and they demonize Clinton and her supporters.   Clinton supporters are passionate about the more liberal values she represents for them and they demonize Trump and his supporters. There is little attempt on either side to truly empathize with the other side.

“We are different yet we respect each other’s view” is rarely heard these days..

On one level there is a splitting that is happening at a very core level .  But at the same time there is a stong force of Unification growing in each one of us.

We are in the bigger picture- long term- moving toward knowing we are all different, a truly diverse human family, but all One.

And you cannot truly believe in diversity, BTW, if you do not see conservative southerners  as part of that diversity- or you cannot see Muslims or North Koreans as part of that diversity, for instance.

Look at the sky and see the perfectly round Moon and Sun.   Pick up a Yin/Yang symbol and see dark and light joined in circular oneness.  See an astrological circular mandala and view all the signs, planets, and houses joined together as one.

How and why have we split apart so drastically? Our split is why we have those so rich and those so desperately poor; why we have perpetrators and victims; why we demonize those we do not agree with.

I believe in the greater world we are now in for an even greater splitting apart before we can come together as one in an Age of Aquarius.

It is almost impossible to talk rationally with many people now about the Election.  There is so much hatred coming from so many people.

It is best for those who want to be a part of the new world to get outside the box of the duality in more ways than one.

If you want to have new world consciousness you are wanting to see life as like a Yin/Yang symbol, dark and light, male and female, yin and yang different but together in Oneness.

You cannot change what is coming to us except to get your consciousness vibrating at the frequency of Diversity in Unity, with love and truth at the core of your soul.

This week, as we begin our Autumn journey, with Mercury Direct and the Eclipses in our rear view mirrors, we will experience Pluto changing directions and a New Moon in Libra.

On Monday September 26, Pluto the ruler of Scorpio and the mythical Guardian of the Underworld will go from Retrograde to Direct.

Pluto is a transformational planet that is quite intense and potentially explosive.  As it moves from Retrograde to Direct, its intense energy permeates our collective and individual souls.

It is meaningful that the first Presidential debate is happening as Pluto goes direct.

Expect a most powerful debate, one that will somehow transform the conflict between Clinton and Trump and the people who follow them.

In your personal life you may well experience an increase of passion and intensity in the days surrounding Pluto’s shift.

You may also have arguments or inner conflicts that bring you a transformation of a relationship or of your own beliefs or consciousness.

Other powerful world events may be showing themselves in the days surrounding Pluto’s shift.

On Friday September 30 there will be a New Moon in Libra at 8:11 PM. Jupiter will be conjunct the New Moon while Mars and Pluto square it in Capricorn.

There will be a lot of energy in this lunation, one that will involve relationship in one form or another.

Libra, being relationship oriented, seeks the bringing of people together to relate with one another.  Jupiter conjunct this New Moon serves to inspire such a connection.  But Mars and Pluto in Capricorn may put a damper on such a union with doses of practical reality

This New Moon in Libra also brings more beauty to our lives, like the soon to fall leaves of multi colors.

Be aware now of what is fair and just and what constitutes a win/win for both parties.  Libra wants grace and peace, harmony and ease.

Some conflicts in the world now will seek peaceful resolution.    It may signify a temporary break in the conflict or perhaps even a more permanent settlement.

This New Moon in Libra moves us forward out of Eclipse Season.

I will miss the Forecast for next Saturday the 1st of October, but will resume again on Saturday October 8. I will be visiting the Southwest in Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado.

The week I will be absent is a mild week astrologially.

However from Wednesday the 5th through Friday the 7th there are some minor planetary rumblings.

Mars will square both Jupiter and Pluto while Venus sextiles Pluto.  These aspects should amp up the energy field and tempt people to be more impulsive.

Counteracting that impulsiveness and volatility is Mercury leaving Virgo to enter Libra for around a month. This transition happens on Friday October 7

Mercury in Libra is mentally very balanced and peaceful and a mediator and diplomat in disagreements.

Till we meet again on October 8.

Shifting Realities and Astrology Forecast September 18-24

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week brings us winds shifting into a turning point.

Mercury has been Retrograde since August 3; on September 22 it goes back Direct again.

Also on September 22, Summer is ending at the Autumn Equinox at 10:21 AM EDT.

We have made it through 2 Eclipses this September, and now though the eclipses have passed us by, we still are in the waning energies of Eclipse Season.

As Eclipse Season begins to slow down, we flow right into the metaphorical sunset time of year: Autumn Equinox, the beginning also of Libra time of year.

Twice a year Light and Dark are equal:  Spring Equinox and Autumn Equinox.  At Spring Equinox, though yin and yang are equal, the turn is toward Yang and Light, with yin and darker days waning.

But at Autumn Equinox the reverse is true:  Light and Dark, Yin and Yang are equal; but Yin and darker days begin to grow.

So we begin to slow down and turn more inward.  We also begin to let go more of striving  and personal gain, and instead become more relationship oriented and appreciative of what we have.

As the light begins to dim, we become more grateful for the friends we have, more wanting to focus on relationship and inner values.

As this yin-ward movement begins, this year it is accompanied by Mercury going back Direct again. I know many will be quite relieved at that shift.

Clarity begins to appear, fogs lift to show us more clearly what direction we need to move in.

You may not get the full picture and feel comfortable to move forward yet however.

The New Moon in Libra on September 30 is a good marking point for greater clarity and movement forward.

But for this week enjoy the shift, allow the shift inside yourself.

Many, since Mercury went Retrograde, questioned their previous choices or beliefs, perceived in new ways, woke up to new ideas.

Some also have experienced a slide back to old times, to old friends and relationships in their minds, dreams or in the flesh.

We were reminded of how it used to be so we could see our current situations from a bigger or deeper perspective.

Sometimes we get so goal directed, or driven by a strict agenda, or so sure of our way of seeing things.  We need to be loosened up, to see other points of view. Mercury Retrograde can help us to do that.

And though Mercury Retrograde can be very difficult, it does help us to be more process oriented, and to open our minds and hearts to other viewpoints and feelings.

Now with the Autumn Equinox added to Mercury going back Direct again, and the last eclipse having passed; we can slow down and allow life to show us the way as things now unfold.

We have been learning that forced left brain obsession with finding the answers, has left us with more anxiety and less clarity.

Autumn Equinox lets us know that colder darker days are slowly moving in.  We know we need people more as a result.

The Sun moves into relationship oriented Libra at the Autumn Equinox.  Relationship means friends and family and romance, but it also means more awareness of social ways of perceiving and being.

Everything we do or say affects others, and though we may value pure and honest self expression; we often need to balance our frank expression with a sensitivity to how it makes others feel or how it will affect the state of our relationship.

Libra also seeks relationship in other ways.  It likes symmetry and beauty and how colors and shapes interact with one another. It is motivated by love.

It cares about balancing the scales of justice and seeing both sides of an argument.

In that process of seeing both sides it can be very indecisive and also can give up its own needs and individual self.  It can be so accomodating of others.

It also can be so caught up with how things appear or how they should be socially correct. In so being it can lose the deeper value of a situation or the honest expression.

Yet Libra stands for Connection, Fairness and Peace above all else.

As the disrupting energies of eclipses leave our consciousness and lives, we are ready to see what will take shape as a result.

There will be both world and personal events coming soon that will be a result of what has been shaken up during the eclipses.

The Presidential Election process will begin to clear up after Mercury goes back Direct.  In fact just a few days after Mercury goes back direct there is the first Presidential debate- I believe on September 26.

That debate should provide for those tuned in a real good sense of what direction the election process is moving toward.

In your personal life you could very well begin to feel soon as if you made it through a challenging time, progressed and grew, and now are ready for what will come your way.

The recent weeks have been a transformational challenge, pitting us up against some of our core issues.

You have released some of the emotional baggage and will feel lighter and more open to being your authentic self and receiving others as they are naturally.

We are all evolving in alignment with the changing energies, energies aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into.

If you are sensing, seeing or feeling things that are not usually a part of what you call reality, you are not going crazy.

You are instead spiritually awakening to frequencies and realities that are beyond what we are taught to exist.

Entering into these worlds or being open to these entities will assist your evolution and your journey into the Age of Aquarius.

A Step Beyond and Astrology Forecast September 11- 17.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is round 2 of eclipses, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces on Friday September 16 at 3:05 PM EDT.

That means that intensity will build this coming week appreciably until it climaxes on or around the 16th.

Since Mercury also stays Retrograde all this week, it may at times feel quite off balance emotionally and mentally.

The more one energetically rides the waves, the better.   If one holds too tightly and tries to control too much it will be more difficult this week.

Adding to the intensity of the eclipse, Mars in Sagittarius will square the points of the Sun and Moon positions of the eclipse.

That makes a T-square formation, a usually difficult pulling in 3 different directions energetically.

Sun in Virgo pulls toward physical order, logical analysis, and perfecting or fixing;  Moon in Pisces wants to be able to let go and surrender, allow the soul to speak its truth, and to go with the flow.   Both seek to be of service to others or to something greater than the self.

Mars in Sagittarius wants to stoke the fires of enthusiasm and inspiration, take the exciting adventure, and trust inspiration.   Virgo moves downward, Pisces moves inward, Sagittarius moves upward.    Virgo is earth, Pisces is water, Sagittarius is fire.

If you try too hard to figure everything out this week, you will likely be frustrated.  If you encounter challenges or difficulties, it will be best to let the process unfold without needing to totally understand everything or to force conclusions or answers.

Remember that Mercury is Retrograde and as such it requires letting go of mental controls, and instead to trust other ways of comprehension like intuition or imagination.

You may be rewinding the clock of your life now, revisiting with people from your past through dreams, memories or actual in-person connections.

This may bring up unresolved issues, issues you have put aside and thought were resolved well enough.

Current situations in your life can be seen as similar to the ones that are coming back to you from the past.

You thus have the opportunity to work through blocks or dysfunctional patterns in your life or relationships.    The past only needs to come back so it can be applied to current issues that need resolution or healing. Or perhaps it is back so you find closure to the old issues, so you can move on in your life or relationships.

If you are feeling hurt beyond what seems “logical”, then you know it is an old wound or trauma that has been triggered inside you.

Eclipses help us to move out of stuck places in our minds or hearts. They do so by taking us out of our comfort zones, creating breakdowns or breakthroughs out of those stuck energies.

Mercury Retrograde helps us to see with new lens, to perceive differently, to go outside the old boxes.  It helps us to question a belief or direction we have chosen.

We then have the opportunity to change directions, to think and feel differently, or to end up feeling even more confident of what was previously chosen.

You can see why it is wise, with the eclipses and Mercury Retrograde to not jump to conclusions, or leap into anything.

All is in process now, and bottom line thinking is off its usual abilities.   Be patient and wait it out.  Before too long (sometime after Mercury goes back direct on September 22nd) renewed clarity and direction will surface from the fog.

In the global picture during this Eclipse Season and Mercury Retrograde:  the election process for President of the USA is getting even more mean spirited from both sides; a truce has been called in war torn Syria; North Korea is looking more dangerous than ever; the USA is  getting more estranged from China and some Asian nations like the Philippines; the economy  and stock market are showing signs of difficulty; Iran and the USA are sabre rattling with one another; and the Middle East in general feels like a kind of calm before the coming storms.

These issues will tend to build intensity this week with some kind of climax around the Lunar Eclipse.   Then all will begin to shift around the 22nd on Autumn Equinox with Mercury back Direct again.

Life as we know it is rapidly changing right before our eyes now, and we are only just in the beginning of the transformation.

We have a long way to go before we reach what is needed and aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

Things in some ways will get much worse, like with societal structures and institutions, which are decaying and self destructing.

But in the process we are as a human collective re-aligning with core principles and ideals.

We are reaching more up to the heavens of our divine nature, while at the same time getting more comfortable with our connection to sacred Mother Earth and her Natural rhythms.

We are honoring more our souls and spiritual natures, while learning to trust our bodies and their wisdom at the same time.

All is connected and working together for a common unity and evolutionary growth.

All is pointing toward the star of the Age of Aquarius.  It may not be exactly what each of us wants, but it will give us all exactly what we collectively need in our travels around the wheel of our Universe into a New Age.

Expect the unexpected and do not be too surprised if we before too long see the proof that we as Earthlings are not alone in the Universe.

Staying on the Path and Astrology Forecast September 4-10

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 3, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo has now passed, but we are still very much within the Eclipse Season. There is another eclipse on September 16: a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Pisces.

I know many of you noticed that right on the day of the eclipse on September 1 Hurricane Hermine hit Florida; there was a 7.2 Earthquake in New Zealand; and there was a terrorist attack in the Philippines.

The intensity was very strong leading up to the eclipse. Now as we are a few days past it, the intensity has lessened.    But that does not mean that powerful world events will stop too.  We can expect big world events to continue all the way through September at least.

In fact there was a 5.6 earthquake in Oklahoma on Saturday the 3rd of September.  The USA can now expect many important and potent events to occur in the country between now and August 21 2017, especially close to the actual date of August 21 2017.

On that date there will be a Total Eclipse of the Sun in Leo.  That eclipse will “travel” exclusively across the USA and will closely oppose the USA natal Moon in Aquarius.

The parts of the world that an eclipse travels over are the places most apt to experience the important events. The Moon in any natal chart is the planet that provides feelings of safety, comfort, and emotional well being. Those feelings will be challenged here in USA.

So expect our country to go through great change over the next year or more.  And of course the Presidential election will bring big change no matter who is elected, especially so if Donald Trump is elected.

Remember last year when I predicted with my planetary formula that Trump would win the Republican nomination, even though at the time he was one of 17 candidates and not even remotely considered a favorite to win.

I also wrote that Trump would likely win the Presidency if there were major events that would erupt in our country prior to the Presidential Election, events that would severely threaten USA security- like terrorist attacks or market crashes.

I believe that because Trump’s natal chart is closely tied to the USA natal Mars and Pluto, symbols of its power and strength in the world.

Eclipse season will either bring us such events or will at least give us some clues as to what to expect between now and the election.  And whomever becomes the next president will inherit a USA that will be going through major and difficult transformational change, especially leading up to the Total Eclipse on August 21 2017.

The structure of our world for an Age of Aquarius requires a world of equality and Diversity within Unity.  Many world changes will occur in order to make that happen.

We each individually will also be challenged to grow and transform during that time period.  All of this is a part of the accelerated change happening on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

This acceleration began in the early Spring 2014 when there was an eclipse that formed with other planets to become a Cardinal Grand Cross.

In the world at that time Islamic State invaded Mosul Iraq and declared itself a state and Caliphate in conjunction with its captured land in Syria.  This was the beginning of seeing the strength of Islamic State.

Also Russia at that time invaded Ukraine, upsetting the settled boundaries. This began a rift between western countries in Nato and Russia.

And China around that time was declaring land around the China Sea as its property against the beliefs of Philippines, Viet Nam and other Asian countries

Also soon after the Cardinal Grand Cross, there was a police killing of an unarmed black man in Ferguson Missouri that set off major riots.

All these issues are still unsettled and promise more potent events and transformational changes.

In our own lives most of us have entered into a New Chapter of our lives since March 2014. We have gone through much change, and in the process a letting go and releasing of that which represented the passing chapter in our lives.

The Universe is helping each one of us to transform our consciousness and lives in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

We are being shown the way to our more authentic Self and more authentic lives.  Homes, relationships, schooling, and careers have been changing as a result.

So now in the continuing process of transition into a New Season or Chapter of our lives, we become challenged to let go and release some more of what no longer fits who we are becoming.

And we will receive more magic, more synchronicity, more signs and symbols to inspire us on the path into our new consciousness and lives.

As we are still in Eclipse Season, while Mercury is Retrograde (till September 22), it is important for each of us to be flexible, to be more open in our hearts, and to not let our left brain logical minds to stress too much in order to squeeze out answers and solutions.

Let the process unfold over the next few weeks and be patient about receiving clarity  and direction.

This week we add a few new important planetary events.

The biggest is another exact square between Saturn and Neptune. As we explained in previous forecasts, there is a conflict between needs for security (Saturn) and desires for transformational change (Neptune).  Saturn is boundaries, rules, and regulations. Neptune is borderless, with needs to have more empathy and to trust and “let in”.

Issues in the world about immigrants and strict boundary control plays out within the USA and also within Europe, as well as with Islamic State changes of boundaries in Syria and Iraq.

In our personal lives our boundaries may be threatened by others; emotions may be out of control; ; conflicts between being firm and being empathic; and conflicts for following rules and being responsible versus wanting to escape so much anxiety and stress.

Also this week on Friday September 9 Jupiter enters Libra for a year, after having been in Virgo this past year.

Jupiter in Virgo is inspired by more order, efficiency, and logical analysis.  Jupiter in Libra is inspired by balance, equality, fairness, beauty, peace and most of all relationship.

This coming year is a good year to work on relationships of all kinds, and to find the connecting links between people and between all things.

Stay on your path this week no matter what is going on around you and inside you.

Till next week,
