Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon and Astrology Forecast March 29- April 4

The giant portal that has been opening this early spring of 2015 will open more fully this week.  This happens as we approach the second and last eclipse of the season: A Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.

This eclipse is on Saturday April 4 at 8:06 AM EDT.  It falls right in between two Christian holy days: Good Friday and Easter Sunday.  Good Friday is symbolically understood as when Jesus died on the cross; and Easter Sunday when he arose from the dead.

Most of Australia, the Far East, Hawaii and Alaska, Australia, and the west coast of the USA will see most of the eclipse.  The midwest and especially the east coast USA will see very little of the eclipse process.

This Lunar Eclipse will be quite powerful as it includes the Uranus/Pluto square.  Uranus will be conjunct the Sun in Aries and opposite the Moon, while Pluto will square both the Sun and Moon.  This is happening just after the March 16 exact square of Uranus and Pluto, their last such meeting of 7 passes- which started in 2012.

This Total Eclipse forms a Cardinal T-Square formation with Uranus and Pluto, a formation which is almost as powerful as last year’s Cardinal Grand Cross.

As was true with the Cardinal Grand Cross last year, this T-square formed with Uranus and Pluto will make close aspect with the USA natal chart of July 4, 1776. The USA Sun and especially Saturn are being aspected again.

So that means this Lunar Eclipse formation will symbolize the huge transformation the USA is going through over the 18 months from April 2014 to October 2015. Events surrounding this eclipse may feel fated.

You can expect much change in the world and especially the USA now and for the next 6 months and beyond.

It is no mere coincidence that the Middle East and North Africa are bringing us so many important events now, like the Israeli election, the nuclear Iran talks coming to a climax, and the bombings and turmoil in Yemen.

The balance of power in the world has been shifting, and now as we come through this portal opening this spring, there will be a spike in the speed of this transformation.

The natal charts of Israel, Iran, and Syria are also being touched off this spring 2015, so we can expect much more turmoil and conflict to erupt in the Middle East in order to assist the process of breaking down the barriers that hold back the light that is wanting to burst through.

The Old World’s paradigm is held very strongly in the Middle East, so much needs to be broken down so healing and transformation have a chance there.

It is the Military/Economic complex that runs so much of our world, so we can over the next several months expect breakdowns of the economic and military structures that hold up the old world and its paradigm.

Chaos will certainly become more prevalent during the transformation, but so also will bullying attempts to keep the old order intact.

This Aries/Libra lunation signifies a split between conflict (Aries) and peace (Libra); doing it how I see fit (Aries) and giving in to what others want (Libra); courage to stand up for myself (Aries) or doing what is best for the relationship (Libra).

You will see these themes play out in the world and in personal lives.

In any healthy relationship both Aries and Libra needs are met.  Aries is ruled by Mars and Libra ruled by Venus, so male and female need to be integrated as well.

In a healthy relationship there is a balance between independence and togetherness. If there is too much independence there is little intimacy and togetherness. If there is too much togetherness there is greater chance for co-dependence and losing one’s true self.

Remember that this Total Lunar Eclipse is a Full Moon, but it is Full Moon with much more energy. Many of you really feel Full Moon’s and are greatly affected by them, as are hospitals, police stations and the ocean’s tides.

So expect even greater shakeup than the usual Full Moon, as we get closer and closer to the actual event on Saturday April 4 at 8:06 AM EDT.

Relationships are most affected now, whether those are romantic or family or friend or between countries.

Though there may be more conflict or reopening of old wounds, there is also more opportunity for breakthroughs, for healings, for improving or transforming old patterns that have kept you stuck in unsatisfying relationship dynamics.

it is a good time to talk things through, to empower yourself and speak your mind.  But it is also a good time to truly listen, to put yourself in the other person’s shoes so you can better understand their position.

Also watch closely as the nuclear talks with Iran take shape this week.  How these talks evolve will be so important for the Middle East and actually the whole world as a result.   There are Shia/Sunni conflicts getting more deadly; Muslim/Judeo Christian divisions; Israeli/Palestinian disagreements; western world/Russian and Chinese differences that the Middle East rests upon.

And all of these are essential ingredients in the makeup of the Diversity within Unity Aquarian Age we are moving into.

Eventually we will need for there to be a sense of oneness, of one human family with many different members trying to find agreement.

And just like in a healthy family, though there is disagreement and sometimes even horrendous fights,  there is no disowning or making an enemy of a family member.

Once we understand we are all in this together, then we will let go of weapons of mass destruction and demonizing of other religions, cultures, races, or nations.

We have a long way to go.

And in relation to our Aries/Libra Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, there is need to not demonize men or women, to make one the good guys and the other the bad guys.

All opposites are meant to be a part of wholeness and unity, just as the Yin/Yang symbol shows opposites within a circle of unity- differences that complement one another not destroy one another.

Remember that whomever you have been brought together with in relationship is for the purpose of learning more about your self and your self in relationship- no demonizing is appropriate.  If someone is abusing you or treating you badly, you may be learning to empower your self or build better boundaries.  Deciding whether to let the person go or to work out your common issues together- is on a deeper level symbolic of your evolution as a human in relationships.

See you next week,

Leo

So Shall it Be and Astrology Forecast March 22-28

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 21, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have passed through the first part of Spring Eclipse Season 2015, as an important portal into the new world has been opening.

But I know for many of us it felt more like the old world was alive and well,  with fear and nasty behavior stronger than ever.

Five different people this past week asked me something similar.  The words may not have been exactly the same, but in essence they questioned the same thing.  They did not understand how people could be so mean or selfish or cold or rude, etc.

There was a lot of negative energy released this past week with the aspects of Uranus/Pluto and the Solar Eclipse.

In Israel the worst case scenario played out: Bibi Netanyahu’s Likud party was the winner of the vote, and almost for sure he will maintain his position as leader of Israel.  And as the election was still playing out on Election Day, he complained out loud about the droves of Arabs going to the polls.  And he stated that with his win the two state solution with the Palestinians was dead.

That in effect would mean that the peace process would end, and that the apartheid style of domination of Palestinians would get even worse.

Yes he took those statements back after he won, but of course he had to in order to try to retain support from America and the International community.

But these events in Israel promise much more conflict, turmoil and war in the Middle East, not a very graceful entry into the Age of Aquarius.

And if the nuclear talks with Iran do not bring some kind of framework resolution over the next 10 days or so, we can expect tremendous chaos before long in the Middle East.

This past week also brought two devastating attacks by ISIS, one killing almost 20 tourists in Tunisia and another one killing over a hundred people in Yemen.

And in Frankfurt Germany this past week there were protests that turned into huge riots over banks and the economy.

And now we are in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the aforementioned Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces.   And true to Pisces there is an emotional outpouring and more chaotic feelings that are not easy to find a center within.

We are being taken out of our usual default positions inside ourselves and in our lives, so that we may be more able to let in the changes.  With Pisces there is a need to surrender control and trust the process of the Universe.

Yes some ugly energies have been released this past week, but we as individual humans can choose trust and love, or fear and anger.

What has been released is part of the process to get us where we need to go. If on a personal level in your own life this past week you experienced or expressed “negative” emotions, do your best not to judge or jump to conclusions too fast.

The “demons”, so to speak, were waiting at the entry of the opening portal.  They have been released into our collective consciousness.

Now it is time to “regroup” and reintegrate, to come back to our inner core and center.  There are more challenging winds of change ahead, and it is imperative we each keep a spiritual perspective and be true to our best human values.

I have been letting people know for a long time now that the Middle East would likely implode as part of the journey to an Age of Aquarius.  It is the part of the Earth that birthed many of our original civilizations and organized religions, and as such would show us what has gone wrong and what needs to be changed.

Planetarily speaking, we move now toward the second eclipse this Spring Eclipse Season 2015:  A Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.   This Eclipse will have Uranus and Pluto in its signature, as Uranus will be conjunct the Sun in Aries and opposite the Moon in Libra; and Pluto in Capricorn will be square the Sun and Moon.  This will happen on April 4.

Since Uranus and Pluto will still be close be being exactly square (since they were exact on March 16), it will be another powerful Eclipse event.  We will discuss that more at our next Perspectives column next week.

And keep in mind that after the last of two eclipses this spring, we will continue to have more changes and dramatic events.

Whatever swirls through our lives during this portal opening now, which continues through the Lunar Eclipse on April 4, will tend to activate events at and after the New Moon in Aries on April 18.

In your personal life and soul journey, there may be more emotional and spiritual processing to go through over the next couple of weeks.  More “negativity” may be released as the positive light rays of this opening portal meet the energies that block out this light.  As those blocks are cracked open, they are more able to be released.

So do not hold onto the fear or anger or jealousy, etc.. Do not stop to judge your self for feeling or expressing them. Instead release them, and release those people or situations or attitudes or beliefs or stuck old patterns that have held them for you.

As you release, you open your vessel to the light frequencies, and in the process bring back trust and hope and more love and wisdom.

You do not deserve to stay stuck or in pain or trapped in your mind or life.  There is nothing you have done that cannot be atoned for, cannot be healed, cannot be resolved sufficiently.  Beating yourself up tells the Universe you are not ready for moving on from the past.

You will be given the opportunity during this Pisces Eclipse Lunar Cycle, which lasts until April 18, to face your old ghosts and demons and release them as part of your transformational process.

Are there people in your life or thoughts in your head that mirror back to you the old negative self image you keep holding onto.  Let it go now so you can be ready to move forward after the Aries New Moon on April 18.

And in our greater world, much will similarly swirl around during this portal opening.  The old fear based ways will continue to rear their ugly heads as they did at the Israeli elections this past week.

The global economy, governmental and military/police controls are in the process of huge transformation.  Those old ways hold up the old world and its corruption, its needs to perpetuate patterns of domination and control and unhealthy self interest.  It needs to be changed and the coming events will ultimately help in that process.

So many of you have moved far away from being pulled into the games that perpetuate that old world.  You no longer can be motivated by the fear it uses to run the old world.  You do not need to play its games, the games that lack heart and soul and trust in nature and the Universe and the human spirit.

But perhaps there are still parts of you that are still influenced and fear the hand of an old judgemental God who will smite you or send you to hell.

If so, now you will have opportunity to release these fears and symbolically send them out to a black hole in the Universe.   Take the next step and tell the Universe you are ready to trust like a child again. You can send that message by releasing that which keeps you chained to your fears, your victimization, and your resentments.

All happens for a reason, even your worst and most horrific events from your past are stepping stones to your self actualization, to your purpose for being here.

See it that way and then so shall it be.

I have created a new YouTube presentation for the Spring Portal.

Till next week,

Leo

Spring Portal and Eclipse Season 2015 and Astrology Forecast March 15-21

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast on March 14, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week the Spring Portal and Spring Eclipse Season 2015 opens widely.

On March 16 Uranus makes exact square to Pluto for the 7th and last time.  Their first meet was in June 2012.   The breadth of their influence from the square is pretty much from 2010- 2017.   After that whatever they have brought to our human family in its evolution into the Age of Aquarius will begin to settle into our consciousness and lives.

What has been happening with Uranus square Pluto is an extension from the conjunction in 1965-66.   That conjunction started a new cycle for Uranus/Pluto, and that new beginning brought on the ’60s revolution.  That ’60s period was when the song “The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius” came out, and many sensed exactly that with all the changes that were swirling through lives.

And now we are even further along in that movement into the Age of Aquarius.  And the Uranus square Pluto aspect has been triggering events in both our personal and collective lives, so we may change our consciousness and lives in accordance with the Age’s frequencies.

This Spring Portal and Eclipse Season 2015 brings in stronger waves of change and greater awakening to the New Age. Strong light rays and beams of truth want to storm in, but of course there are blocks in our individual and collective consciousness that hold back the tide.

Those blocks collide with the new energies and can cause much turmoil in both individual and collective lives. The more you can let go of the old paradigm and outdated ways inside your self, the more easy your transition will be.

Of course that is more easily said than done, as change is not easy for most of us.  We tend to resist even when the change will be good for us.  What is familiar, even if painful or boring, acts like a security blanket for many.

Sometimes all we truly need to do, however, is to be open and flexible in our minds and hearts.  What we have previously believed to be right is not right anymore.

People used to think that the world was flat and that everything, planets and all, revolved around the Earth.

Televisions, radios, computers and airplanes were not even in our imaginations long ago.

Life changes as seasons change, and if we hold on too tightly to what used to be, we cause our selves great stress and disease, and miss the opportunities to learn, to grow, and to evolve.

And now we are in a new season of life on Earth, and this Spring Portal is accelerating our movement more fully into it.

After the Uranus/Pluto square on the 16th, later this week there is a most powerful Spring Equinox.  On the Spring Equinox day of Friday March 20 there is also a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces.

That is a most unusual combination and promises a very change-full and powerful Spring 2015 season ahead.

If you are in the process of change already, the speed will pick up.  If you know change is needed but you have been putting it off, you can expect life to push you forward.

Holding on will now work well, so it is best to ride the tide. Do not expect the changes to be exactly on March 20. Consider that the center of the change and a time when the intensity is greatest.   But the actual events can happen any time this spring.

Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East are in the path of this eclipse.  So big events are more likely to erupt in those regions this spring.

Since the Solar Eclipse is in Pisces, the best strategy is to surrender to the energies and change.   Life may seem more difficult to comprehend and attempts to figure things out intellectually may not be as successful as usual.

Even though this is a New Moon Solar Eclipse, which by its nature promises new beginnings; at the same time the Pisces influence may bring us to ghosts of the past, and show us a rewind of old ways or events.

The opportunity, however, for consciousness shifts within that process is great.   You can dive deeper into the “soul” of people or life and experience more emotion and feeling.

Chaotic energies are more likely to erupt, and that chaos makes creativity more alive, and opens avenues that allow for change to happen.

When energies are controlled, change is held back.  When those controls are broken down, it may feel like chaos, yet what is really happening is an opening of the passages for change.

Much that will happen this week will be setting the table for even bigger events after April 18 at the next new moon, an Aries New Moon.

And in between is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra on April 4.

For this week, as the Spring Portal opens, there are events that are unfolding in the Middle East which we have explained before are most instrumental in our worldwide transformation and evolution into the Age of Aquarius.

On March 17,  just before the Spring Equinox Solar Eclipse, there is an important election in Israel that will show the way to who governs there. Will Netanyahu be reelected?  If so, war is more likely in that region.

On March 24 there is a deadline on forming a resolution about the nuclear program in Iran.  If that is passed or delayed peace is more likely.  If there is no agreement or much hope for one, then war is more likely.

An Age of Aquarius will have greater equality for all nations and cultures of the world, and that age will have Diversity within Unity as a way of being all over the world.  Do we need more conflict and pain before we get it? Or can our transition be more graceful?

Can we let go of needs for tragic power struggles that threaten us all since weapons of mass destruction are so prevalent in this world?  Or do we need to continue to learn the hard way, a learning experience that threatens all our lives?

Can we transform our economic structure so it serves all the people of the world? Or do we cling to a system that now shows 1% of the world populace owning 50% of the world’s wealth?

Change can very well happen in the form of stock market crashes and economic upheaval.  And this can happen soon.

I mentioned last March, just before the Cardinal Grand Cross, that the next 18 months would bring great world change.  We are now 6-8 months from that time period ending.

Empires, which began with at the beginning of the Pisces Age in Rome over 2000 years ago, are coming to an end. The American/Western Civilization Empire dominating our world now is coming to an end.

How that process unfolds is not totally known, but we must all be ready for changes in our lives in accordance with that change.

That does not mean we have dismal lives ahead.  This age brought an end to Rome, Ottoman Empire, British Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire, Soviet Union, etc.

All those peoples have survived their transformation and so shall we.

But in order to facilitate an Age of Diversity within Unity, of equality in value for all peoples and ways of life;  there must be an end to Empires and Superpowers, and on a deeper level the notion that some are better and deserve more.

In your personal life the changes are so you can let go of the old skins of a life that fits you no more: of relationships and jobs and homes that are no longer reflective of who you are, or reflective of the life you are moving into- naturally.

Remember that the movement of the planets is reflective of Nature, its cycles and seasons.  And though humans can certainly affect the movements of “Nature”, in the end Nature rules, not our attempts to control.  We can destroy ourselves, but not Nature’s cycles and seasons, energies and lifeblood.

We are moving into an important phase of the passage into an Age of Aquarius:  Spring Portal and Eclipse Season 2015.

This week brings a storm of intensity that seeks to clear the passages to allow for greater transformation.

I have created a new YouTube presentation for the Spring Portal.

Till next week,

Cracking Open the Portal and Astrology Forecast March 1- 14.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 28, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Planetary movements in March and April signify the opening of a major portal into the Age of Aquarius.   Last year at this time, as we approached the Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014, another major portal was beginning to open.

As these portals open, the energetic atmosphere intensifies.    New frequencies of light, love, and truth are wanting to enter collective and individual consciousness, in order to help us evolve in alignment with the soul intentions for the Age of Aquarius.

Of course there are blocks in the way of receiving this love and truth- blocks from old conditioning; blocks from attachments to familiar ways that feel safe and secure; blocks from old traumas and wounds; blocks from a resistance to letting go of our ego’s need to control; blocks from attitudes and beliefs ingrained in our minds and hearts from the old paradigm.

Just as with individuals, these blocks fight against the influx of these new energies and hence can cause dis-ease,  conflict, upheaval, and challenges to the potential gracefulness of the process.

So it is best as this portal opens to stay present and aware, to look at your self and life from a more detached perspective, with spiritual lens and deeper soul connection.

Meditation; being in nature; spiritual practices; being aware of the Universe’s signs, symbols and synchronicities; and just generally staying aware beyond our more mundane agendas are ways to stay connected as energies intensify and world events gain in importance.

This coming week March 1-7 may bring some early winds of change prior to the coming storms of change as Venus in Aries triggers the Uranus/Pluto square; but I believe the real intensity of these winds will not be felt by most until the week of March 8-14.  That is when Mars triggers the Uranus/Pluto square just days before the actual exact square on March 16.

That will be followed by a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on the day of the Spring Equinox on March 20 and then by a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra on April 4.

That will be followed by Jupiter going Direct on April 8; and then by the spark of the ignition turning for more outer directed changes on April 18.

Deep transformational movement as the portal opens will mainly occur between March 8 and April 18.

Then what results from all this transformation will be sparked after April 18.

I not be writing on my usual day next week Saturday March 7.   I will be celebrating my March 6 birthday while on vacation in the the Southwest USA.

Therefore my next post after this one will be on March 14.  And I am scheduled to create a new YouTube video for this great portal opening on March 12, to be posted on March 14 also.

This coming week March 1-7 has some spark to it from a Jupiter/Uranus trine on Tuesday March 3 and with Venus in Aries triggering the Uranus/Pluto square on March 4.

The Jupiter/Uranus trine also triggers the Uranus/Pluto square and it will tend to bring enlightenment and inspiration.  It should bring issues in the world that help us to see from a broader perspective, outside the usual mental boxes

Netanyahu, the leader of Israel, will be speaking to the American Congress on or around the 3rd, and that talk will break open into collective awareness the issues that are so important to resolving the nuclear issue with Iran.

Netanyahu went behind President Obama’s back to set up this meeting, outside normal protocol.

President Obama is trying to find a peaceful resolution in regards to Iran, a resolution that to his way of thinking would make the Middle Easy safer and maybe ultimately set up a foundation for settling the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the ISIS threats.

Prime Minister Netanyahu does not believe Iran is sincere in its efforts to stop its supposed path to a nuclear bomb and instead wants more pressure put on Iran including the threat of war.

This is a most important world issue in the transition into an Age of Aquarius.   Some of the first seeds for world civilization and major world religions were planted in the Middle East.

What happens there during these several years of transition is most important.

And as this portal opens up this late winter and spring, what happens with Iran and Israel will greatly determine the amount of pain our human family will suffer as the wheel turns into a new age.

Of course other early civilizations and religions were in China and India.  And what happens in those parts of the world now will also greatly influence the portal opening now and the transition into a new age.

India and China and surrounding regions are having growing pains and there are old resentments there between those two countries and other countries in Asia.  North Korea holds a special key to the potential for a world of Diversity in Unity, as right now it is so isolated from the rest of the world, even as it hold nuclear weapons.

We are at a huge turning point as this major portal opens.  We are each important in how the tide turns, as we work with our deeper consciousness in transformation and evolution.

As we each evolve, so does our collective consciousness.

So Jupiter trine Uranus this coming week will help us to wake up and see greater truths.

Venus in Aries sparking the Uranus/Pluto square will bring shifts in our relationships, so we can better navigate the changes.

Who is in your heart now?   What are they bringing to your life?  Who is not in your heart now as you are growing and changing?  And what does that mean? Do you need to let them go or at least change the form of your relationship?  Of do you need to go through some relational and emotional work with them, so to bring back that connection?

The week of March 8-14 should bring much more intense winds of change, personal and global issues and events that wake us up even further to what is happening and where things are going.

This week will bring the forces that shake any fences of indecision we may still be sitting on.

Mars is forceful and focused, intent on moving things forward, in taking on any challenges with courage and integrity of self.  Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday that week should be the most intense and filled with events that open up issues and tend to make us act not just talk or ruminate.

And on Saturday the 14th of March Saturn changes direction from Direct to Retrograde.  In so doing, in the days surrounding this Saturn slowdown and shift, its energy and intent will be experienced.

Saturn is contracting energy, limiting possibilities, sometimes to the point of knowing fated events or at least a sense of “it is what it is”, nothing I can do about it except accept and make the best of it.

This Saturn turning point will bring us into the spell of Spring Eclipse Season 2015.  The last of seven exact Uranus/Pluto squares happens on the 16th, followed by the Solar Eclipse on Spring Equinox the 20th of March, then the Aries/Libra Lunar Eclipse on April 4.

World events including events that will be affecting the world economy and including natural Earthly and weather events will be more likely at this portal opening.

Those of you who have been bored, wanting more movement and change will be pleased for sure.

Talk with you again on March 14

On the Verge and Astrology Forecast February 22-28

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 21, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We approach the beginnings of a most important portal for humanity.   This portal opens March/April and will lift us up off whatever plateaus we have been resting upon.

Last year at this time we approached an Eclipse Season with another Uranus/Pluto exact square and a most powerful Cardinal Grand Cross.

We all know how much our personal lives and the world changed then, and how we were thrust into a new chapter or season of our lives, on the way to the doorway into an Age  of Aquarius.

This passing winter has brought rest for some, dark nights of the soul for others, yet it is important to know that whatever “new normal” we may be attempting to hold onto is an illusion.

The changes last year are only the beginning, and now as we come ever closer to a portal into greater transformation, we are being prepared on all levels of our being,

I do  not anticipate any Earth shattering world events to erupt this coming week, nor should you expect anything monumental to shift for your personal life this week.

Remember it is Sun in Pisces time of year, so there are more inner ghosts to face than outer actions to take or events to experience.

There is some counter to that inner work because Venus and especially Mars have just entered forceful Aries.

But it will be until very late February or more likely early March before we will feel the strength of this transformational  portal opening.

Then Jupiter, Venus and Mars will all take turns triggering the Uranus/Pluto square, in anticipation of the last exact square of those two giant forces of transformation and healing.

That last square will be on March 16, and will be closely followed by a Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the day of Spring Equinox 2015.

That Solar Eclipse on Spring Equinox is an important facet of the signature for the spring this year.   The portal gates will opening then, and the remainder of spring and summer 2015 will bring tornadoes of deeply sweeping energies of change.

In your personal life whatever has been left undone from the changes you experienced last year, will be furthered soon.

If you were without much change lat year you will likely be experiencing it this year, especially if you are an Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn born in the middle degrees of those signs.

Any other planets or angles of your natal chart, like the Ascendant or Midheaven, that are in the middle degrees of those signs will also we greatly affected.

And if you were born in late Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, or Sagittarius; or have planets in the late degrees of those mutable signs- you will also be greatly affected by the Solar Eclipse in Pisces.

It will be soon be time to let go of any security blankets that have been symbolically protecting us from our true soul paths in life.

It is becoming more and more important to stop faking it, to end any masquerades that hide your authentic self from view, even from your own view.

There is little time left to sit on the fence between a polluted mainstream that promises “normality” and “safety” on the one hand, and a blossoming new consciousness that is creating a new world on the other hand.

There is an old world of Monsanto and other Corporations wanting profit before all else,; corrupt world leaders who hide truths and are desperate to hold privilege; a conditioning of minds and hearts to embrace  the societal games of power struggles for status and wealth; and daily trivial pursuits of more and more shopping.

We are also conditioned to believe we need to build bigger and bigger Military, to spend inordinate amounts of money in that regard, while people suffer and starve all over the world.

If you cannot truly believe that we can build a better world in alignment with the Age of Aquarius, then I know which side of the fence you will fall from.

The coming world changes will be devastating for those who have not landed on the New World side of the fence.   They will only know the battles for survival, the fights with the enemies, the needs to prop up the economy, the dominating hands of order against the growing changes.

On the New World Side of the fence there is a sense of meaning for the coming changes, there is light to lead the way, there is consciousness and frequencies to help us to evolve and create a new world,  there are fellow travelers to build family with, there is a  sense of purpose; there is magic and synchronicity and knowing of the connections that bring all into wholeness. There is love and truth to hold us together.

For this coming week, the last week of February 2015, it is a good time to gather ourselves and our lives, to find gratitude for what we appreciate in our lives, to go deeper in our meditations and prayers, to give strong intent to healing our wounds and traumas as best we can.

There is little indication, outside of the recent New Moon in Aquarius, for big steps forward.  That is because Saturn is strong with its square to the Sun in Pisces on Monday and its trines to Venus and  Mars mid week. And the more flowing Sun in Pisces conjuncts its ruling planet Neptune on Wednesday.

Except for a mercurial minds moving fast with Moon in Gemini Wednesday and Thursday, it is a week of slo-mo.

Perhaps late week will bring some transformational rumblings with Jupiter making minor aspect to Pluto, triggering the Uranus/Pluto square.

Much more intensity on the way in March.

Aquarius Consciousness and Astrology Forecast February 15-21

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

For the early part of this coming week, as we move through the darkening last quarter of the Moon’s cycle, the energies are slow and yin-ward, perhaps rather dreary for some.   These are the “dog days” of winter, seemingly endless days of darkness and cold.

But on Wednesday this coming week there is a shift, one that will bring more active energies, more of a sense we are moving forward, for better or worse.

On Wednesday February 18 there is a New Moon in Aquarius, beginning the lunar cycle that will lead us to the day of the Spring Equinox.

Also on the 18th the Sun moves into Pisces, which is the last sign the Sun moves through before it enters Aries at the Spring Equinox.

On the 19th Mercury gets back up to its normal Direct speed, signifying an end to Mercury Retrograde’s influence on our mind and lives.

And also on the 19th the Chinese year of the Sheep or Goat begins, a New Year for many east Asian inhabitants.

And also on the 19th Mars moves into Aries, the sign Mars loves to be in, where its active, forceful, initiating energies have a home.

So expect the coming week to bring stirrings of awakening and movement forward.

The New Moon in head strong Aquarius, and Mercury getting back up to Direct speed promise a clearer mind and a better sense of mental sanity.  It is a good time for new ideas also and a time when thinking inventively will be rewarded.  The Aquarius New Moon is also a time for greater social consciousness, group connections and global awareness.

Mars in Aries will be joined through conjunction with Venus in Aries late in the week, giving more impetus to fresh starts, fresh thinking, and a stronger sense of the great change coming our way soon.

Some people may already begin to feel the winds of Spring Eclipse Season 2015 blowing in this week or soon after.

Events in the news may also show us “previews” of what will blow up into bigger issues and events later.

In your personal life you may also begin to see the beginning seeds planted for what will more fully bloom in your life during the upcoming Spring Eclipse Season 2015.

But keep in mind, even as you get more energy for moving forward this week, that we have time before the intensity of transformational change truly erupts into our lives.

This waiting time is signified by the Sun moving into Pisces on the 18th.    That Sun in Pisces, which lasts until March 20 at the Spring Equinox, brings us through a month of surrender to what is deeper than our waking mind can usually fathom.

Pisces, ruled by the God of the ocean Neptune, is best experienced while in the flow of life, allowing the tides and currents to take us where our consciousness needs to go.

We may need to experience some ghosts of the past so we can reintegrate that which we have left behind, and/or so we can better heal from wounds or traumas from our past during Sun in Pisces.

Our consciousness is getting prepared for the big changes coming soon.

And as Mars and Venus go into Aries this coming week, they are getting us closer to that change.

During the first half of March the last exact pass of Uranus square Pluto will be in the spotlight.  Venus and Mars will trigger that square of these huge transformational planets in the first and second week of March, and then on March 16 Uranus and Pluto make that  last exact square to one another.

And of course all that is followed by two very strong Total Eclipses relatively soon after.

It is most important now, if you are inclined to tune into world events, to watch what is stirring in the world.

Of grave importance is the potential nuclear deal with Iran. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is speaking in front of the USA Congress on March 3.  He did not appropriately consult with President Obama first and his message is very likely to be against making a deal with Iran.

President Obama, in trying to make this deal, in improving relations with Cuba, and in his comments of how the Christian Crusades rivaled in butchery with the ISIS atrocities, is moving in alignment with the New Age in Aquarius.

Equality and Diversity within Unity are in alignment with the Age of Aquarius and Obama’s recent activities.

President Obama, so connected with the soul of Abraham Lincoln, is beginning to listen to his “better angels” as his time as President is coming to an end.

The “power structure” of our world is changing now with the growth of China, Arab/Muslim culture, Brazil, and India, etc.  Russia is having serious problems with the western world, and Europe with Greece’s recent election of a socialist leaning Prime Minister is facing severe challenges to its unity and economy.

And of course the USA is also going to be severely challenged with its economy also this year.

As we look out at our world, one that does not have in its mainstream a sense of holism, unity, interconnectedness, true spirituality, valuing of truth telling, honoring of the Earth and all its creatures as sacred,  we can see a need for immense transformation into a new paradigm for thinking, relating and living.

We are all connected as one family of human and creature on Earth, and only with that deeper awareness can we hope to somewhat gracefully enter this Age of Aquarius.

So there is importance in finding common ground with Iran in this meeting of differing cultures.  If we do not, we can expect world conflicts that will bring much misery to so many on the Earth.

In your own consciousness and life there is probably nothing more important than leaving a paradigm of superiority/inferiority, of some being innately better than others.

We may like our way better for us, but we must accept that not everyone is made the same way with the same cultural orientations or persuasions.

The whole world does not have to be governed by a democratic/capitalistic model for living.

Nor does the whole world need to be Christian or Muslim or Republican or Democrat or heterosexual or homosexual.   And none is by nature better than the other.  It is all in the “eye of the beholder”.

Yes we need to have a world of unity and all people have in common a need of safety, food and water, love, etc.

But we do not all have to wear the same “uniform'”.  There are “many roads to Rome”, many faces of human or of the “god-force”.

Diversity within Unity is a big part of the new paradigm for living on Earth in an Age of Aquarius.

And for this week you can get your life motor running,  revive your mental adeptness, and begin preparing your consciousness for great change ahead.

Till next week,

Leo

Storm Clouds in the Distance and Astrology Forecast February 8-14

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on February 7, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week Mercury goes back Direct as we enter the last quarter Moon phase of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Aquarius on January 20.

Mercury goes back Direct on Wednesday February 11 at 9:57 AM EST.  Later that same day the Moon in Scorpio brings the Moon into its 4th quarter phase.

So you can expect to sense a shift early this week to mid week.  Mercury Direct often brings a feeling of relief, as there is a sense that things are returning to normal.

Weird vibes begin to abate, clarity starts to appear, direction is more evident.  But it may take up to a week before all signs are “go”.

That is especially so as we enter the last quarter moon phase after Wednesday also.  So the energies will not support making big strides forward.

Energies instead will turn us more inward and yin-ward, and toward finishing up whatever we have recently begun.

Yet still Mercury Direct will give a sense of moving forward, at least mentally. While Mercury is Retrograde we often rethink, rewind, remember, reintegrate, reflect, and often redo what goes wrong.

Now as it goes back direct, we begin to think “straight”,  see beyond the fog, and stop making as many mental and communicative errors.

We start to feel more confident about making big decisions or choosing what directions to move toward.

A week later on the 18th, Mercury will be “back to speed” and the last quarter moon phase will end with another new moon, this one being a second New Moon in Aquarius (at the very last minute of Aquarius).

So this coming week stay rather “chill” ( pun intended on our weather).   There is little movement suggesting big moves forward.

Better to get one’s head straight, to reconnect heart with head, and to honestly appraise your current state of being.

The next lunar cycle begins soon enough, and that one will get us ready for a most powerful late winter and spring 2015.

Tuesday through Thursday, as Mercury slows down (stationary) while shifting back Direct, may be either a mentally challenging period and/or a rather creative, mentally inventive one.

On November 7, 2000 as Mercury was doing exactly the same dance of Retrograde to Direct, the presidential election between Gore and Bush went bonkers.   News anchors went back and forth all night between predicting Bush and then Gore, then Bush, etc.

Remember that Mercury is the trickster planet and as such will give you tricky situations that show exactly the opposite of what you would expect.   Take for example the recent Super Bowl at the end, with all the  unpredictable happenings.  That game was during Mercury Retrograde.

That does not mean this Mercury shifting to Direct time will be as dramatically confusing as the 2000 election, most likely not.  But if you are not too involved in your mundane tasks, you may be able to sense the shift.

It is symbolically like the clock going from counterclockwise to clockwise again.

Also this week is the first of two months in a row of Friday the 13th.  Yes it is a superstitious day and bad things do not happen any more than on any other day.

But it is significant because it is reflective of the centuries old societal bias and fear of Female Power.

Friday is Venus day in most countries, like Italy: Venerdi.  And even in English languages it is Frieda Day, Frieda being a Goddess like Venus.

All the days have planetary affiliations in case you have  not noticed:  Saturn-day, Sun-day, Moon-day.  Not sure about Tuesday and Wednesday in English cultures, but in Italian those days are Martedi (Mars) and Mercoledi (Mercury).  Thursday in english is Thor’s Day, who is the equivalent to Jupiter.

So Friday is Venus Day and 13 is a sacred Feminine number, as there are approximately 13 lunar months in the year instead of the calendar accepted 12 solar months.

Also some now believe there were 13 disciples of Christ, the 13th being Mary Magdalene, who would be the only woman disciple.

So Venus and 13 give us Friday the 13th.   The power of the Feminine, which is mystery, emotional depth and power, and energies beyond the rational mind.  Also the Feminine, as represented in part by Kali, shows us the power of the Feminine that destroys ego and hubris.

So our very “male” culture in the west has grown to fear the power of the “feminine”, which cannot be controlled or predicted.

Our world is soon to feel this power of the Feminine, which is not the societally accepted feminine, which is “sugar and spice and everything nice”   That feminine is more easily dominated and controlled.

At the Pisces Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on the Spring Equinox of March 20 this year, we will begin to feel this mysterious power of change.  It cannot be understood through rules, commandments or standard morality, just as an earthquake or volcano or hurricane cannot be truly understood on a rational basis.

You can look at those weather phenomena scientifically, but you will still never understand why they exist in any usual rational way.

And there is a planetary storm brewing too.  The powerful aspects in late March and April show us marking points for its arrival. That will open a giant portal into a powerful new phase of the transition into the Age of Aquarius.

till next week,

Leo
