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

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.

Till next week,

Leo

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.

Till next week,

Leo

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,

Leo

Tides are Turning and Astrology Forecast August 28-September 3

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on August 27, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Tides are turning this week, and for many this week will constitute a turning point in their lives.

We are meant to have our comfort zones and protective bubbles challenged this week.

The major planetary movements this week include Mercury going Retrograde;  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo; and a Mutable T-Square alignment that is part of the Solar Eclipse configuration.

It all begins on Tuesday August 30 at 9:04 AM EDT when Mercury turns Retrograde.  That will last until September 22 when it goes back Direct again.

Then 2 days later on Thursday September 1 at 5:03 AM EDT there is a Solar Eclipse New Moon at 9+ degrees of Virgo.   That means the Sun and Moon are both at 9+ degrees of Virgo.   And the Mutable T-square is formed with Neptune in Pisces at 10+ degrees opposite the Sun and Moon; and Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius squaring the 3 other planets.

This is a powerful and important aspect that is pulling us in different directions.

The Virgo New Moon Eclipse in Virgo demands order and perfection; Neptune in Pisces seeks flow and ease; Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius seek a bigger picture that brings answers and meaning.

All in all it is a potentially stress inducing configuration unless you commit to just taking the energetic ride of it.

If you push for control you will bring with it anxiety and pain.  If you accept what is happening inside you and around you as meant to be and meaningful you will have an easier time of it.

The Virgo Eclipse is energetically the strongest part of this aspect, and it may tend to get you into obsessing or over-analyzing something, especially the details.  Use the Neptune energy to let go and surrender mental control if that happens.

With Mercury being Retrograde at the same time, it is important not to let your left brain logical mind get too focused on trying to figure everything out.

It is important instead this week to trust the process, which means to know that everything will unfold and reveal what you need to know in time, just not right now.

Also be as flexible as possible in addressing any events or issues that confront you this week.

Remember that Eclipse Seasons are meant to shake things up and Mercury Retrograde is meant to help you to shift your perception or sense of your life’s reality.

You noticed that we were initiated into Eclipse Season last week by two major earthquakes: one in central Italy and one in Myanmar.  Shake-ups indeeed.

You may question your self or the decisions you have made during Mercury Retrograde and Eclipse Season.  At the least you will shift your outlook and perceptions.

If you do question your decisions or choices, please do not jump to conclusions, rush to judgment, or do anything impulsive.

Allow the process to unfold and if you can, wait for Eclipse Season to end (October 1) and Mercury to go Direct (September 22) before making any big decisions or big moves.

Our lives are in transition into a New Major Chapter.  We have been transforming our consciousness and our lives aligned with that reality.

That means there is an Old You that has been dying and a New You that has been born.  It is important during these transitions to keep contact with those who remind you of your old self to a minimum.

If family or friends or life mates have never truly “seen” you or honored you, you need to quit trying.  It is a well in your life that will likely stay dry.   You can keep contact with them but let go of expectations, stop taking on their energies and problems, and stop trying to get them to understand you.

You can do it if you keep your conversations superficial without getting into emotional issues.  You may not be able to share your deeper feelings with them anymore.

There is nothing more important in the transformational process than nurturing and taking care of the New You.  That New You is really the Authentic You, the one you may have silenced a long time ago in order to find acceptance.

Now s(he) has been birthed, and just like a newborn baby it needs to be protected from anything or anyone toxic.

Of course in the greater world we are also in transition from an old age to a new one.   And so many will keep hanging onto the old age, especially so if they have been privileged within the old age.

They will want the old paradigms to continue, and will fight to keep the old Military/Economic Establishment alive.

But you can see it falling apart right before our eyes.  Look at our Presidential election process and realize that the cream does not rise to the top anymore.  The liquid or soul of our culture and world is rancid and toxic as are the oceans of the Earth now.  Nothing nor anyone good is naturally rising to the top of our world. Instead playing the game well is what gives rise.

We need to look deeper to find the seeds of a New World and Age.  Those people and that consciousness will reign supreme but it is a process that will take time.

Do not despair when you look at the two party system and the choices it has afforded us. Do not despair when you look at the inequities, corruptions, abuses, and injustices all around.

Look deeper at the core of your own transformation and values. Look for people who are also working to transform themselves and their lives.

Do not buy into the old dramas that keep us victims to an unjust system.  Instead realize that “We are the ones we have been looking for”.  And as Jesus said “the meek shall inherit the Earth”, which really means that the power abusers will not last as the leaders of the world.

The Age of Aquarius is upon us and this Eclipse Season, if you look from a higher perspective, is triggering the deeper changes and transformations we need to evolve.

Do not let fear or hatred overtake you and you will not drown in the dramas and toxic energies from the old world.

The draws to fear and hatred will get stronger and stronger now. As a counter to that draw it is important now to integrate into your consciousness and heart the knowledge of Oneness and that all is connected.

Everyone is a part of you that is in the world. No one is your enemy to be feared or hated. Do not demonize either presidential candidate.  Just get out of the drama. Don’t be fooled into thinking any one person will ruin our country or world. The Universe is much bigger than any one person.

Each Presidential candidate is a reflection of a part of our country.  Trump and Clinton represent segments of our population and segments of our collective consciousness.

And much of that collective consciousness is filled with the toxins of the old world and its values. Just like in personal transformation, release the energies, clean out what the candidate represents, and then open to what comes into you instead.

It will be your true values, not the values of what you are have been programmed to believe.

Enjoy the ride,

Leo

Times They are Changing and Astrology Forecast August 21-27

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on August 20, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now experiencing the first breezes of the Eclipse Season’s winds of change and transformation.

Intensity will gradually increase as we move toward our first eclipse, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 1.  That will be followed two weeks later by the second eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces on September 16.

Some people I talk to get nervous and frightened when they know eclipses are coming. There is nothing to be afraid of.  Of course that fear is embedded in our ancestral memory, as those who came before us were really afraid when they saw the Sun go black during a Solar Eclipse.  There were all sorts of superstitions that were then triggered.

But we modern humans do not feel as small in the face of the Universe and Nature as did our ancestors.  We know we are co-creators with those forces.

Nevertheless the eclipses, like all planetary influences, do bring us energy formations, like weather patterns, and those influences can blow in like storms and influence change.

The two eclipses this September are in usually gentle Virgo and Pisces. Eclipses do add more intensity and power to normally gentle energies.  Plus both these eclipses will form strong mutable t-squares that will include Mars, the Lunar Nodes, and Neptune in their signatures.   

That complicates and intensifies the eclipses even more.  Expect breakthroughs and breakdowns in parts of your life and consciousness, as well as the same for the greater world.   We will give a broader and deeper evaluation next week, the week of the first eclipse.

We will also discuss the fact that Mercury will go Retrograde just two days before the first eclipse on September and will stay Retrograde all the way through the second eclipse- until September 22 on the Autumn Equinox.

Mercury Retrograde will help us to question and think outside the usual mental boxes, but it may cause some fogginess or confusion in its process.

During the Eclipse Season with Mercury Retrograde, you will serve your life best by being flexible and open and trusting of what the Universe and Nature bring forward. This coming week will set the table for the coming shifting winds of change.

This week, a week before the first eclipse, we feel the stirrings of change, but our concentration will be more about completing, finishing up, processing, and preparing for the eclipses.

That is because this week we experience the Sun going into Virgo on Monday August 22; Mars conjuncts Saturn and squares Neptune on August 24 and 26 respectively; and we begin the last quarter of the Lunar Cycle on August 24.

The last quarter Moon prompts us to reflect on where we have recently been and where we intend to go now.  It helps us to clean up and get ready.

The Sun in Virgo also shows us the way to cleaning up and finding order, to getting back to more work and school, to repairing and fixing what need ot be repaired and fixed, to maintenance, to healing, and also to using our left brain abilities to focus, analyze and discern.

Mars conjuct Saturn and squaring Neptune tells us to stop or pause before we move forward, to deeply reconsider before making an absolute decision or action, to be patient and flexible.

We cannot push the rivers of our lives to go faster or to change their direction to where we want them to go.

Soon the blocks to progress will be removed, as we get further into the Eclipse Season.   Eclipses are about movement.

I know many of you are quite concerned now about the state of our world and country.   I remember back in the ’60s and ’70s people feeling the same way.

There was an unjust war in Viet Nam, a corrupt President in Nixon, protests that turned violent, awakenings of the injustices toward black people and women, fears of nuclear destruction, and the assassinations of President Kennedy, his brother Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King.  Gender roles were rapidly changing, and relationships and marriages were breaking down.

But all of this was happening as the old world and its systems were breaking down, as new light, new truth, and greater justice and fairness was opening up.  It was the best of times and the worst of times.

And now revolution and evolution are strong again, and it is not always pretty, but hope is all around.  Look at the millennial generation and its passion for change through Bernie Sanders.  Look all around at the people now open to meditation, yoga, and new spirituality and healing.

There are people all around who are shining more Love and are more grounded in Truth.   We are now more connected all over the world than ever before through internet, global communication, global commerce, and global travel.

We now need to connect more through the heart and soul and with empathy for those with different lifestyles, cultures, beliefs, and ways of life all over the world.

Sure many get really down about our choices for President in 2016, but they will not ruin our world any more than did a Richard Nixon presidency. There is a bigger picture at work and the Universe and its cycles and seasons are much more influential than a USA presidential election.

In fact Nixon’s presence caused people to passionately rise up and demand change.  His presence and the war and the state of the System caused people to evolve and grow and live up to what they believed in.

We were then at a turning point in revolution and evolution into a new Age of Aquarius.

And we are even closer now to that New Age, no matter how dark it appears sometimes.

Till next week,

Leo

First Breezes of Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast August 14-20

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on August 13, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Saturn has now gone Direct, and as representative of the Hand of Time, Saturn puts the Universe’s clock back in forward motion. This assists us in leaving any personal escape zones or comfort zones.

“We are back on the clock”, as they say.  Time to take more seriously again our responsibility to be our authentic true soul self- not what we each are “expected” to be by family, society or our own expectations.

We are back on the clock just in time for the next Eclipse Season, which begins right after the Full Moon in Aquarius this coming week.

The first Eclipse this new season will be on September 1 at 5:03 AM EDT. It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo.  Just 2 days before that Eclipse Mercury will go Retrograde. Mercury will stay Retrograde until September 21, which means it will be Retrograde during both Eclipses this month, the second one a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on September 16.

So this will be a very interesting Eclipse Season with two Eclipses and Mercury Retrograde.

It will be essential to let go of the shore you may be holding onto, as your life’s boat travels down the river of change and transformation.

There is so much world change on the way too.   Expect all the old certainties to not be so certain anymore.   Politically it is already happening.  This Presidential election cycle has been crazy, disillusioning, and unpredictable. That theme should continue.

Both traditional political parties have shown how dysfunctional and/or corrupt they each are.

Other institutions of the system will also show their shadows soon, and we need to be ready to collectively get more involved in new ways, new projects, new ideas.

Wikileaks is a new institution, outside the old system box, which is showing us the true colors of much of the old world and the people who are “authorities” and leaders within it.

I am sure they will continue to have that role, and they will be joined by others, including hackers who open secret doors of corruption from the old world.

More and more we will be opening to more Truth, and also we are being opened to people and places that show us Love.

Truth and Love are the twin pillars of the New Paradigm.  As we uncover the dark secret places of the Old World, as we let go of the power it has had over our minds, hearts and lives; we open to a new and better world, one more aligned with the authentic soul self we have been growing into.

It can be really disheartening at times to see the real face of the old world when the mask is lifted.  And it is so disillusioning to see some people in our personal lives when the rose colored glasses are removed.

This disillusionment is an important phase of the transformational process on the way to Aquarian Age consciousness.

We need to let go of the old world’s programming, and only by seeing the truth can it happen.

And the process can really be painful before we are graced by frequencies and people of the New World.

It can be difficult to trust again once one has been betrayed or lied to or disappointed by those we have counted upon.

But we do hopefully open our hearts to trust again, which helps us to open to the butterfly of new birth.

This coming Eclipse Season will give us breakdowns of that which needs to be let go of, and breakthroughs into new ideas, new consciousness, and new ways to be and live our lives.

This week the beginning winds of Eclipse Season begin to blow in as we experience a Full Moon in Aquarius on Thursday August 18 at 5:27 AM. This will begin the waning second half of the lunar cycle that began with a Leo New Moon on August 2.

That waning second half ends at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 1.

The Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius this week is thus an important marking point on the way to the first Eclipse. It will bring with it the beginning of issues that will be important during this Eclipse Season.

This Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius has a theme of heart (Leo) versus head (Aquarius) or how to find a balance between your heart and your head.

When you buy a car, for instance, do you buy the one that glitters and opens your heart(Leo) or do you buy the one that is practical, energy efficient, and inexpensive (Aquarius)? Or can you find one that has a balance between the two extremes?

Leo is open hearted and creative and resonates with what is popular. Aquarius is open minded and inventive and resonates with what is individualized and unique. Leo is more self focused; Aquarius is more socially or group focused.

At an Aquarius Full Moon it is time to be more socially conscious, but be aware of your own or other egos that get in the way.

As we pass through this Full Moon which is bringing in the first breezes of the Eclipse Season, be present and aware of any signs or symbols of the issues that will important during this Eclipse Season. What is coming into your personal life that will be an important issue to look at during this Eclipse Season?

What is opening up in the greater world that will be important during the Eclipse Season?

See you next week,

Leo
