Chaos and Order and Astrology Forecast November 22- 28

Since the New Moon in Scorpio on November 11, there have been a lot of violent events that have occurred:  A brutal attack on Paris and another brutal attack in Beirut Lebanon.  Both of these attacks have been identified as being perpetrated by the Islamic State or ISIS.  Another horrible attack happened at an international hotel in Mali, Africa.. This one may have been done by Islamic State but that is not known yet.  And in Israel violence has continued and even grown since the New Moon in Scorpio.

These events are all outgrowths from the Eclipse Season this last September and alert us all to the grave need for vast transformational change in our world.

It is easy to attribute all this violence to Radical Islam, and then believe that if we can eradicate ISIS and other groups of Islamic terrorism that the problem will be solved and all will then be fine.

And though we certainly need to  solve this problem and work to end the onslaught of brutal attacks perpetrated by Islamic State, Al Queda and other such groups; more importantly we need to change some paradigms we have given allegiance to for thousands of years.

These old paradigms give fuel to the fires of “might makes right”,  survival of the fittest, greedy desires to take as much as one can,  and just generally a philosphy of every man for himself in competition with others for power, money, and privilege.

These paradigms have brought us world wars, colonization, invading of countries that have not attacked you first, extremely uneven distribution of wealth, weapons of mass destruction, and just generally a violent society that creates separation between peoples and a lack of empathy for those we see as different from us.

The transformation we are moving through can feel and look awfully bleak in a global sense, I know.  But we have to go through this dark tunnel in the transformational process before we can experience the Aquarian Age light at the end of that tunnnel.

And of course even as these horrible events are happening many of us are also experiencing spiritual awakenings, transformed health habits, magical experiences of synchronicity, desires to help heal our human family and Earth, a greater honoring of our authentic selves, a turning more and more to our higher self instead of our ego, more empathy and compassion, more personal empowerment, shedding skins of programming from society and family, and healthier relationships.

So remember the bigger picture of changing ages and moving into a world of Diverity within Unity.  Nothing will stop that movement except our human negative instinct for self destruction because of a “dog eat dog” mentality.

Just saw on the news last night how someone slaughtered two innocent cows in someone’s pasture.   Was that because of the Islamic State?  Or was it because we live in a violent society? Movies, video games, etc. show us such depraved butchery, blood guts and all.  This did not exist 50 years ago.

We need this transformation into an Age of Aquarius. And what each of us can do is to work on our own consciousness and lives, and help those who we come in contact with who also wish to transform themselves and our world into a more evolved one.

This coming week shows us three planetary highlights: Sun goes into Sagittarius; Full Moon in Gemini; and Saturn square Neptune.

Saturn square Neptune is exact this Thursday November 26, but its effect on our world is many months before and after.

Saturn is limits, rules, and boundaries.  Neptune is openness and flow with no boundaries.

If you look at what is happening in our global scene, this is playing out in a big way.  Look at the refugee issue. There are many peoples leaving their homes and state for a new home. Mostly European countries are debating whether to put up strong boundaries against their entry or whether to let them in.

On the USA southern border the issue of immigration and illegals is getting more and more intense.

And Islamic State has wiped out old state boundaries of Iraq and Syria, and is crossing boundaries for attacks in other countries.

In 1988-1990 the Saturn conjunct Neptune aspect started the current Saturn/Neptune cycle.

At that time the Soviet Union was breaking up and countries were becoming sovereign entities outside the control of Russia.

This of course greatly affected our world and most especially the USA.

In your personal life this issue of rules and boundaries versus more permissiveness can play out in many ways. One that comes to mind is how we raise our children.  Seems like the balance between permissiveness and more strict rules has been shifting or needs to shift.

There has been a much greater permissiveness over the last 40 years or so.  Is there a need to get back to more firm rules and guidelines? Or not?

And also Saturn represents security and groundedness. Neptune is nore chaotic by nature in its watery flow over and around all boundaries.

So watch how the world and our personal lives try to balance allowing for change which can bring more feelings of confusion and chaos on the one hand- with more security and safety on the other hand.

As there is more change, rebellion and attending chaos, police and military can get more oppressive in trying to keep order. Witness the race issues this past year or two.

Also this week the Sun moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius on Sunday November 22.  So energetically we move from primal intensity and passion to desires for upliftment, inspiration, joy, and adventure.

And on Wednesday November 25 at 5:44 PM EST there is Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini.  This Full Moon should be very lively with desires for communication and relating.  Gemini brings in facts and information and delivers to others those facts and information. Sagittarius seeks to take this information and make meaning, find solution and understanding to it all.

This will carry into the next day, which is Thanksgiving Day here in the USA.  It should be a very lively, talkative atmosphere to be in that day.

Till next week,

Finding Inner Peace During Difficult Times and Astrology Forecast November 15-21.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We had been letting you know that the New Moon in Scorpio last week was going to bring us powerful world events. We wrote that those events would be extensions of the shifts that happened during the Eclipse Season a couple of months ago.

In fact we wrote last week that the Scorpio New Moon could very well open up the “Gates of Hell” through world events.

And it sure seems like it did open those gates with the horrific attacks in France.

Please reread the column last week again, as we then talked at length about how to not be drawn into hellish emotions and instead to find a spiritual place inside yourself.

It would be so easy now to react with rage and to want to go to war with the Islamic State.  That is where most leaders of the western world are going to right now.

And it is easy to understand why.  When one is attacked there is a primal instinct that is triggered. That instinct is to destroy those who have attacked you. That is how wars get started.  Being frightened and running away is the other knee jerk reaction to being attacked.  Our instincts are to fight or give flight.

People like Martin Luther King and Ghandi and others have taught us how to act differently, how to be empowered but not violently confrontational.

We collectively are in the process of learning how to evolve into those ways of being.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, known as the “guardian of the underworld”.  That underworld in part is about our unconscious primal instincts.

Only by being more conscious can we transform that primal instinct.

Ghandi created a mass civil disobedience of the British Empire, which had conquered and then oppressed India.  Britain eventually left India in large part because of the civil disobedience.  Ghandi’s rebellion actually happened in the year that Pluto was discovered- 1930-  “As Above So Below”. He was teaching us how to be empowered without needing to kill and dominate.

Now I am not so naive to believe that civil disobedience will stop the brutal Islamic State.  But I do know that there are ways to evolve beyond the consciousness of the Old Testament’s “An Eye for an Eye and a Tooth for a Tooth”.  We should have learned by now that that attitude makes everyone blind and toothless.

Each of us needs to find a place inside that is peaceful yet empowered. That is what will evolve our human family to one that eventually becomes “Diversity within Unity”.  We each can only be fully responsible for our own evolution,however, not everyone else.  So each of us must find ways to change our consciousness aligned with the New Age.  And then have faith that all will eventually work out right.

For now be aware that more powerful global events are on the way.

To help us to deal with these events, this coming week brings some adjustments to the energies of the Scorpio New Moon lunar cycle: Neptune changes directions from Retrograde to Direct on Wednesday; and next weekend the Sun moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius.

In what ways has this Scorpio New Moon brought more intensity into your life?   Do you feel more empowered or passionate? Have your “buttons” been pushed by others to make you want to emotionally react to them with anger? Are you going deeper inside to find new insights?  Have secrets come out into the open?

The Neptune shift on Wednesday should bring softer energies to work with.   Neptune seeks to help us to be more vulnerable and to let go and go more with the flow. It often brings with it the magic of synchronicity as well as symbols and signs from the Universe.

So use this Neptune shift to shift your consciousness to a place of trust and openness to the Universe and to your own Higher Self.

Next weekend when the Sun moves into Sagittarius, the potential for more inspiration will come with it.  Sagittarius is a sign that is “ruled” by Jupiter.  Unlike Pluto the Guardian of the Underworld, Jupiter is a “sky” god, one who rules higher meaning, higher learning, taking the high road, and inspiration.

Sagittarius is intuitive more that intellectual, sees the bigger picture much better than it sees the details; in other words is better at seeing the forest than the trees.

Sagittarius also is a seeker. It seeks spiritual knowlege; it seeks out answers and understanding; it seeks to find the meaning in everything; and it seeks adventure.

It has a tendency to “leap before it looks” however.  It trusts its intuition, sometimes to a fault, and its fiery free spirited disposition can get it be impulsive sometimes.

But it is nevertheless very resilient, in large part because faith is another of its priorities for living its life. It seeks to find and create light in the darkness.

So you will be given some energetic tools from the Universe this week to help you to better deal with the difficulties that have come since the September Eclipses and the Scorpio New Moon last week.

Not long after the eclipses we were brought to a somewhat peaceful plateau with Virgo and Libra energies leading the way, but obviously since the Scorpio New Moon the energy field around us and in us has greatly intensified and is taking us through a powerful transformational period.

Even the stock market, which started to move up again after the big slide downward during Eclipse Season, last week went quite down again.

Make no mistake, we are transforming out of the old world and in transition into the Age of Aquarius.

But part of that process does not feel very good, and has us releasing toxic energies and self defeating old patterns of thought and behavior.

As we release the old, we open ourselves to new truth and love energies that will set us free from the chains of the past.

Keep purging even as you are moving forward into this New Chapter of your life. Every day and in every way you are transforming into a more authentic self and life.   You are releasing your old programmed attitudes and belief systems, and in the process are being awakened to the Truth of Who you are really are, and to what your purpose is for being here on the Earth at this time.

And you are being awakened also to the truth of the world you live in, one that is also in the process of deep transformation. The labor pains can be very ugly and painful before the brith of the Age of Aquarius.  And it will come.

Till next week,

We are the Ones and Astrology Forecast November 8-14.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 7, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Winds shift this week as we come to a New Moon in Scorpio on Wednesday November 11.

This past week has been very difficult for many people.  As we explained last week, the prepoderance of planets in yin signs Virgo or Scorpio during a last quarter lunar cycle promises “down” times.

It was difficult to see the glass as half full this past week, and many suffered facing their worst fears for one reason or another.

But this time has been necessary to go deeper into our souls and bodies, so we can be more real and can be more able for releasing old fears, old patterns of thought and behavior, and toxic emotions that hurt our bodies and souls.

This whole year has been a challenging one, one of great transformation on the route to the Age of Aquarius.

A portal was opened in both the spring and autumn of 2015, a portal that let in new energies aligned with the new age we are moving into.

Many more people have been awkened spiritually this past year.  Many people are seeing more clearly the true condition of our world.  As such, huge crowds have come to see Bernie Sander’s messages of needed economic equality.

This past week also saw thousands of people join a million man mask rally in London.  This rally was to show how capitalism in its current form is rewarding relatively few people, while the vast majority on the Earth struggle to survive.

This past week also showed how dangerous the Islamic State is becoming, as it very likely caused a commercial airline bound for Russsia to explode in mid air.  Russia has recently been bombing in Syria against the Islamic State. This turn of events will bring much change and more grave events into the global world.

And in Israel, there are more and more attacks from Palestinians who are enraged about the long time occupation of their people by Israel.

We also see more and more mass killings in America at schools and malls and other common meeting places for humanity.

And our government is more and more dominated by outside interests, most especially by big corporate interests.

Power to the people to run our world has been largely vanquished by Big Corporate and Big Government interests.

Yet so many people now are waking up and seeing the light.  Their seeing the light is motivating them to open their minds and hearts to new ways.

In so doing they are spiritually transforming and their now opened hearts seek to enter new pathways of Love and Truth.

Is it not readily apparent now that our current world structure and paradigm has failed and that we need new ways of living on this Earth together as one family, a diverse one but neverthelesss all One Family?  Hateful divisions by religion or nation or cultural differences or sexual orientation are ridiculous and are the root of so many ills in our world!

We will need to band together in order to transform our human condition, heal our Earth and its environment, and spiritually connect to the greater meaning in our Universe and to our abused collective Soul.

Our collective Higher Self or Soul has been dominated in consciousness by our collective Ego, an ego that strives and thrives on separation, greed, power, and cynicism.

But since the Eclipse Seasons this year, even as life at times seems much more difficult, we are waking up in all new ways, and even more importantly wanting to make important changes that reconnect us to our better values and to our souls and the Universe.

Now this coming week shifts us out of the recent emotional funk and will bring us more energy and a greater ability to see the glass of our lives as half full again.

It starts on Sunday as Venus moves out of Virgo and into Libra as we get closer to the New Moon in Scorpio.  But keep in mind that we will still be in last quarter of the lunar cycle until Wednesday.

Please do not let yourself believe that the “negativity” you have been feeling and thinking lately is the ultimate truth.  Let time pass before jumping to any conclusion.   Energies have been coloring our thinking and feelings to be more “negative” lately.

Keep up your meditations and spiritual practices, keep releasing and purging old ways, and realize that “this too shall pass”.

On Wednesday 11/11 there will be a New Moon in Scorpio at 12:47 PM EST. The good news of this new moon is that you will begin to have more energy and more motivation to do things and to move forward in your life.

But also remember that this Scorpio energy may tend to lure you into power struggles with others.   Do your best to avoid such conflict if you can.  At the same time give your best to stay empowed and to speak your truth. Just avoid the ego’s need to dominate someone else and to crush them.

Scorpio at its best gives us positive primal energy and “gut” wisdom, passion, and empowerment.  At its worst it brings us toxic resentments, jealousies,  and desires for revenge.  At the same time do not be afraid to feel such emotions as they may be pent up feelings from holding back your truth and power time and time again.

Just do not feed these emotions, be careful not to express them in ways you will regret later, and certainly do not act on them.

At the same time there may be a catharsis and healing with others as you both express what has been bothering you, perhaps even bothering you for a long time.

This New Moon in Scorpio may open up the gates of hell in the greater world and bring more horrific world events that continue to bring down an old paradigm and awaken more people to the need for great change in our world.

If such events do occur, keep your attention on your personal consciousness and life, on your spritual transformation and on your commitment to your Higher Self.  Keep your attention on the New World that is developing parallel to the breaking down of the old world.

Work to bring into your life relationships that show you the love and truth of this world and Universe. To help in that Mars joins Venus in Libra Thursday to prompt us to make relationship.

It is easy now, with all the troubles in the world, to get into a mind frame that wonders how can there be a God or Goddess or Universe that is loving when there are so many bad things going in the world.

Well we humans have been given this beautiful “park” called the Earth, and what we have done with it is on us, not God.

But now we have the opportunity, as the Ages are changing, to evolve to a whole new level of human.   The examples of Christ or Buddha or Mohammed or King or Ghandi or Mother Teresa or Guevara or Moses, etc are part of our collective human Higher Self.

We each need to embody the consciousness they represent.  In an Aquarian Age there is no need to worship other humans or to wait for saviors as was common in the Age of Pisces.

“We are the ones we have been waiting for”, we are our own saviors now and must take responsibility to make this world a better place for all the human family.

Transformational Drum Beats under the Earth and Astrology Forecast Noveber 1-7

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We enter November (Sunday) with the clocks turned back an hour, giving the impression of darker days. Also as we enter November, we are moving through the waning half of the lunar cycle, a time when things usually slow down for processing, reflecting, and preparing for the next lunar cycle, which will begin on November 11 at the Scorpio New Moon.

New Moons always begin a lunar cycle and give motivation to begin anew. Last quarter moons that are just prior to a New Moon give feeling of downward movement and can sometimes bring on temporary depression.

The time before November 11 is therefore a time to go deeper in one’s thinking, especially so as we are in Scorpio time of year.

The last quarter of the lunar cycle begins on election day November 3, with Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Leo.

Social movements in the USA recently are more toward greater equality, with less control and dominance by the wealthy and privileged- Bernie Sanders people for instance.

This however is countered by the rich and privileged putting more and more energy and Big Corporate super pac funds into keeping the status quo through status quo candidates who sold out- most of the other candidates- Democrat or Republican.

This last quarter lunar cycle from November 3- November 11 will also be a time to process all the recent challenges in your life and in the global perspective.

A New Chapter of life has certainly begun since a big portal opened during Eclipse Season this past late summer and early autumn. Yet after November 11 is when all locked doors will be opened too so we can eachmore fully begin this New Chapter of our lives.

The processing time now, as we enter the last quarter of the lunar cycle this week, will enable us to look more deeply at what is happening to our personal lives and our world.

Give your self a bigger picture look at what this New Chapter will be like. Make attitude adjustments as need be. Stay with your core values, as they will reward you in the end.

On November 11, with the New Moon in Scorpio, there will be a feeling of movement forward after reflection and mental processing the past couple of weeks.

Scorpio is a sign of intensity, depth, passion, and primal instincts.

In the greater world, whatever has been held back will begin to be expressed. Secrets previously hidden will be revealed. Primal passions will burst forward.

Events that showed up in September with the Eclipses will go to the next level of manifestation

Look at the global events that were swirling around during the Eclipses: Russia started bombing in Syria; the Palestinians and Israelis went into very dangerous confrontation with each other; the economy and stock market started to show more evidence of grave weaknesses

These issues have lost some of their heat since September, but they are still very ripe for more events to explode after November 11.

The events that happened in September at the eclipses were not just fleeting and gone forever. They tell us what is coming apart in our global lives.

The economy is held together by band-aids of government money printing; Russia in Syria puts the world into more danger for World War III, and the Palestinian/Israeli conflict promises to explode into fires no one can stop.

These world events are part of a global breakdown of an old world that does not serve the majority of its inhabitants and does not honor our Earth Mother and nature.

We have burst forth into an electronic/computer/internet age that needs to be brought back to Earth literally and figuratively. The computer age will not end, but without the balance of respect for our bodies and souls, our lives will get much worse.

That Scorpio New Moon on November 11 will also signal new beginnings for our personal lives. What was brewing for you during the eclipses will are now being  integrated into your consciousness and life.

Use whatever it is to more fully embrace this New Chapter of life, even its challenges.

You can better avoid the depression some may take on now if you honor and move with the current energies.

Scorpio is “ruled” by Guardian of the Underword Pluto, who myth has it took innocent Persephone away from her Mother Demeter aand brought her into his domain under the Earth- deep into the body and soul of the more mysterious and feared realms of consciousness. When they were done being together in his transformational domain, she was brought back up to Earth, not as innocent but more experienced and wise.

It is Samhain on October 31, same day every year as Halloween.   Veils are lifted in our consciousness, so we can enter those deeper and darker domains where spirits and frequencies of consciousness arre not usually easily accessed.

This realm is not ruled and cannot be reached by scientific methods, math, or computers.  It is world of deep mystery that has the power of transformation within it.

You can access the wisdom and images of soul there, the nurturance of a Dark Mother, and even spirits who may carry symbolic messages for you.

Can you feel the drum beat of the heart of the Earth body signifying deep change now?  Can you sense the power of this transformatation?

Are you already in the process of clearing, cleaning out, and releasing old toxins that have constricted you in your life?

We need to get out from under the weight of mounds of garbage and toxins that have held us back, but also have given us a dysfunctional sense of familiar security.

More clearing and cleaning out of the old this week, getting your self ready for the emergence of new life after November 11..

next week,

Deepening our Experience and Astrology Forecast October 25- 31

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week should bring a deepening into one’s body and soul.  Water and Earth signs are strongly represented this week.  Water and Earth together bring energies “down and in” instead of “up and out”. Together they represent Yin instead of Yang.

There is a Full Moon on Tuesday the 27th at 8:05 AM EDT.  That Full Moon has the Sun in Scorpio and the Moon in Taurus.   Scorpio is water and Taurus is Earth, both Yin signs.

Both are “fixed” signs as Scorpio is fixed water and Taurus is fixed Earth  Water is feelings, emotions, and soul.   Earth is nature, practicality, and the body.

Since Scorpio is fixed water there is a tendency to hold onto feelings and emotions.

Since Taurus is fixed earth, it tends to want to hold onto that which gives it a sense of physical security.

At a Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon, as this one is, there can be “tugs or war” between people who stubbornly hold onto their position or agenda.

Taurus does not like too much emotion or intensity, and Scorpio does not like anyone who lacks emotion or passion.

So there can be a conflict between people who represent each of those positions.

Be careful this week not to let your “buttons” get pushed or to push someone else’s buttons.   If it does happen, then it must be because emotions need to be expressed in order to clear the stale air of suppressed feelings.

All week there will be a pull downward into that which is real.  There is a strong emphasis on the signs Scorpio, Taurus, and Virgo.  That leaves little room this week for escapism or avoidance or over romantacizing.

There is a need to make real now, to go deeper to know the truth.

Finding the truth may take you down into the dark corners of your psyche.  In fact you may also be able to go even deeper than that.

Saturday the 31st brings us into Samhain, an annual energetic passage that our ancestors celebrated.

Modern pop culture calls it Halloween and in religion it is called All Saints Day.

Samhain is approximately half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.  It is a time when the veils between worlds are very thin.

As such one can, with meditative effort, get in touch with the spirit world and with those who have passed through death into other dimensions.

Try this through your meditation or through ceremony and ritual or even just staring into fire and making a soul intention to contact spirit.

It is easy to see why, as a result of this easier contact with the spirit world at Samhain,  tha tHalloween was created.   The more easy contact with spirits must have brought some fears of ghosts and monsters to people back in the day.

So use this time of year to let the spirit world into your consciousness. Allow the increasing darkness at this time of year to help you to go deeeper into the soul.

To foster this process we turn our clocks back overnight from October 31 to November 1.   It is time to be more inner directed, with less energy put into striving and set outer directed agendas.

Getting more in touch with mysteries, and with opening up previously closed secrets is in order now.  Also doing more introspection and delving more deeply into one’s unconscious is  in order now.

After the Full Moon on Tuesday the 27th we enter the last and waning half of the lunar cycle.  The light of the Moon will begin to dim, prompting us even more to go deeper.

It may be helpful at this time of year to be able to process your feelings with someone.  That will help you to gain objective perspective.  Do your best to not allow yourself to get into dark dramas inside your self or with others.

There is still alot to process, sort through and make sense of from all the storms of the eclipse season.

After the New Moon in Scorpio on November 11, it will be time to get more fully immersed in the new chapter of your life.

In the greater world, the eclipses took us into a faltering economy and stock market; major upheaval in Jerusalem and elsewhere in Palestine and Israel; Russia beginning to bomb in Syria; and China and the USA daring each other in waters near the South China Sea.

For now most of these issues have settled down in intensity. But the fact that they all erupted during the Eclipses in September strongly suggests that these matters are important ones that will come back to haunt us- excuse the pun.

The transformation of our old world and its institutions will continue.   There will be much more powerful changes on the way. The events during the recent Eclipse Season “set the table” for what is to come.

So it is likely that around and after the New Moon in Scorpio, world events will intensify again, especially those that are connected to the events that erupted in September.

In your own life, you continue to be ripe for awakenings, deeper realizations, and generally big breakthroughs into new lands of consciousness.  We are each evolving, through personal transformation, into more authentic soul beings.  As we transform we become more attuned to the energies and realities of the Age of Aquarius.

These breakthroughs also help us to shed the weight of EGO, the part of each of us that has allegiance to needs to dominate and control reality in service to the laws of separation and chance.   As we trust more, we let go to our soul self, our “higher self”, the part of us  that is connected to the Universe, nature, and that which connects everything and everyone together with meaning.

We give allegiance to the flags of Love and Truth and the birthing of a New World of stewardship of our Earth, its creatures, and our human family.   We can sense more and more the tone and frequency of a world of Diversity and distinct Individuality connected to the Unity of greater Community.

Awaiting the Passion and Astrology Forecast October 18-24

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 17, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through the last days of Libra this week and getting ready for the Sun to move into Scorpio this coming Friday, October 23.

We are on a kind of plateau now, assessing and still processing from all the tumult from the recent Eclipse Season.

New and powerful energies stormed through an open Portal during Eclipse Season.

It may be difficult now to know where we stand.  The past has been uprooted, but its familiarity still holds our attention and may make us nostalgic for the good old days.  But maybe those days were not really so good.

And with the Portal’s streaming of new energies that have not been fully processed, we may not know exactly where we are going or maybe not even knowing who we are now.

But if you are not too anxious to push your self forward, you may gain some real benefits from the current time period.

This Libra time period brings us much beauty in nature now, with fall colors glowing in the Sun’s rays much of the time here in the Northern Hemisphere.

Libra also brings balance and some peace, much needed since the recent energetic storms in our lives.

But of course that balance and peace can feel boring to some who are ready to burst forward with more passion in their lives.

And for better and worse Scorpio energies will bring forth more passions soon.

Right now besides the Libra placements of the Sun and Mercury, we are also experiencing a lot of Virgo planetary movements.  Venus, Mars, and Jupiter are all in Virgo- putting much influence on physical details and desires to “get it just right”.

Making things more simple and being more humble are virtues of Virgo.  Being of service to others instead of one’s ego is another virue of Virgo.

There may also be much need to analyze things to death, and to get rather obsessed with certain thoughts and agendas.

Do your best to not worry too much now or get too anxious.   Meditation, music, and nature are great antidotes to anxiety and worry.

Yes it can be rather easy to get depressed now, especially as we see darker days and feel colder temperatures; but look at the bigger picture too.

You are truly now in a new chapter of your life. Perhaps it is not totally known what that chapter will be like or what it will bring, but you can know that whatever is on its way (both personally and globally) is what is needed to help us to evolve and adjust to the New World that is bursting at the seams of life to manifest itself.

In the political arena we can see the old ways fighting to hold on through certain candidates.  And we can see the New Age wanting to show itself through other candidates.

Bernie Sanders holds some of what the Age of Aquarius will demand of us. He speaks to greater equality for all, a transformed economic system that does not continue power and privilege to the few while so many others struggle to survive.

And his Sun in Virgo self was humble and without ego in defending Hillary Clinton from much scrutiny in her email controversy at the debate this last week.

The old economic system is not working anymore, as I see so many families where both parents need to work to make ends meet, and even then they still struggle to have satisfying lives that are meaningful to them.  Kids cannot afford college and medical costs are outrageous.

The children have largely inherited a society where materialism and mundane concerns are so highly valued, and where higher and deeper values are sometimes difficult to find in the mainstream.

Movies and TV shows are largely dark, or blatently sexual or violent.   Spiritual values, values of human decency, integrity, kindness, and genuine caring are not as easy to find in the mainstream of society.

Look at the political process.  Billions and Billions of dollars are spent to promote candidates, largely used to create an advertiser’s polished image of a candidate or to demonize an opponent.

Media is corporate owned and either is biased to certain candidates or promotes those who will bring in more viewers and advertising revenues to the station.

The news mainly is about the “horse race” of the elections, winning and losing and polls.  So little news now is about issues that we need to address in order to make our world better, or even news that makes us think, question, or challenge the current prevailing viewpoints or paradigm.

We are fortunate however, to have the internet and social media, as they give us alternative viewpoints and news that cannot be found on mainstream media.

The pleasant plateau of Libra will begin to crack as the Sun moves into Scorpio this Friday at 1:47 PM EDT.  Passions will begin to simmer, getting ready to explode after November 11 at the New Moon in Scorpio.

After that the conflicts in the Middle East and the global economy will be sparked into more intensity, change and transformation.

In our personal lives there will be more passion rising after the Sun goes into Scorpio this coming Friday.  And then after the New Moon in Scorpio on November 11, it will be time to speak your Truth, to go after that which gives you passion, to get in better touch with your primal self, the self that gives you the gut instinct on what is right and wrong for you, and what people feel right to you and what people feel wrong for you.

Scorpio is a “black or white” sign, not so connected to the nuances, subtleties and gray areas of issues.  It has “rulership” of our third eye’s ability to delve deeply into Truth, and to see the deeper motivations of others.

As the Sun moves into Scorpio this Friday the 23rd, allow yourself to deepen your experience, to sink into your deeper soul and your body.  

Pluto is the “ruler” of Scorpio and the Guardian of the Underworld.   It seeks to take us deeper than superficial outer appearances, and to bring us to what is “real”. It takes us into the Dark Mother, the part of the Mother that knows suffering and pain, and wants to hold us closely to her breast and to comfort us during our dark nights of the soul.

As is true for Scorpio and Pluto, often after the dark night there is a renewal and even a feeling of rebirth back into the light.

Transformation occurs as old patterns and energies are released and a new day dawns.

We await the world’s transformation.

Truth Will Set Us Free and Astrology Forecast October 11- 17

The Eclipses have passed; Mercury is back Direct; and we will experience new beginnings with a New Moon in Libra this week.

Nevertheless, there is much fallout now- and on the way- from all the important recent planetary movements.

We can begin now, however, to look out past the debris in our minds and hearts from the planetary storms.

As Mercury Direct soon gets back to its normal speed again, clarity begins to peer out from the clouds in our minds.

What has happened over the last couple months? What is the meaning of it all?  What can we expect next?

We have just gone through a big turning point in our collective lives as a major energy Portal has been opened.

Though much may look the same on the outside of your life, deep change has been swirling deep under the surface.

You cannot do your life exactly the same way anymore.  Perhaps the last recent weeks have disoriented you and life feels different somehow?

Well it is, and before long that will be more apparent in an obvious way.

In the Global world so much has been shaking and changing, but that change is merely an appetizer for what is coming our way.

The economy in recent weeks has been shaky, shown in the tumult of the stock markets. Though some of that has quieted down, it will not be for long.  We are on the verge of a huge transformation of our world economy. This autumn and winter will show more shakiness in the stock markets.

We have been writing recently how the charts of Israel and the United States have been rocked by the recent planetary movements.

Israel is now being seriously threatened by a new Palestinian uprising, one that is in large part centered around Eastern Jerusalem, its Israeli Temple Mount and Muslim Al Aqsa Temple. These are places revered by Judaic and Islamic tradition, and are places important in determining how a true agreement between Judeo-Christian and Muslim cultures can be achieved in this world.

Based on the recent important planetary movements, this current conflict could very well explode into a major battle before too long.

And also during the Eclipse Season with Mercury Retrograde, Russia started bombings in Syria, bombings ostensibly meant to help destroy the Islamic State in Syria.

But instead they are almost certainly intended to keep President Assad of Syria in power- against the desires of America, Saudi Arabia and others to take him out of power.

There is a potentially huge conflict brewing, which could very well explode into a major upheaval which would spill over into the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and into much of the world.   The Old World is truly falling apart now and that fact will become more and more obvious over the next few months.

Also during this Eclipse Season, secrets held tightly over the last many years have been opening up to more scrutiny.

The Kennedy assassination and the alien/UFO coverups have been showing signs of moving beyond conspiracy theories and into the light of Truth recently.

So much has been covered from our collective eyes about our human journey, covered by those who want us to believe in ways that program our minds and behaviors.

Just think how history is taught in our schools.  The victors in wars always have control of how history shows itself.

Can you imagine how those history books would describe World War II if the Japanese or Germans had won? The bad guys and good guys would change hats in the books of history.

What if JFK was truly killed by the CIA or mafia and it was proven?  How much would that change our world view?

What if we learned that Aliens from other planets had ultimate control of our lives and have had that for many years?

What if we learned that Beings from other planets came to Earth thousands of years ago and are the real Gods that were worshipped as Ra or Isis or Neptune or Zeus?

What if we learned that Jesus was never really crucified, but instead lived, married Mary Magdalene and carried on an ancestral lineage?  How much would that change our paradigm?

We are moving through times now that are opening up new portals of Truth, and will awaken us to who we truly are and where we came from.

This portal is also opening to bring us important world events that are meant to change our world in big ways, in ways that are clearing the ground for the Age of Aquarius.

In your personal life, the changes that are happening or will happen are opening up a big new chapter of your life story- perhaps they are opening up a whole new Book of Life for you.

This New Moon in Libra Monday the 12th at 8:06 PM EDT is the first new moon, new beginning since the last Eclipse on September 27 and Mercury going Direct on October 9.

This New Moon in Libra concentrates our efforts on making our important relationships work better.  Venus Retrograde, Mercury Retrograde and the eclipses have shaken up many relationships and created a lot of changing life dynamics.

Now we will be more ready to accept these relationship changes and to work on changing the patterns that are not working anymore.

These changes are more important than usual, as we are choosing our way through the forks in the road toward our destinies.

Are we choosing from our egos or our higher selves?  This question is a most importnat one in determining your “fate”.

Also this coming week, Mars and Jupiter in Virgo will be conjunct one another as they are also making a trine to Pluto in Capricorn.

This means that facing the nitty gritty truths will be hard to avoid.  We are looking more closely in the mirror of our minds to see ourselves and our true intentions.

We can see the truth of others better too.

But be careful not to confuse truth with negativity, depression, or cynicism.  These Virgo planets and Plutonian emphacis can get us seeing the glass as half empty very easily. 

Then on November 11 there is a New Moon in Scorpio that will bring on more intense world and personal events that are an extension of the recent Eclipse Season, as well as a beginning look at the New Season of our lives.

Remember that all that is and will be happening is clearing the way and opening up the vistas to the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,


I have a YouTube video from the last Eclipse Season for you to see.

And my wife Deborah has just started a blog will bring to you a greater sense of life’s sacredness and our human connection to our Earth, Feminine mysteries and that which brings us all together in unity.
