Ride the Tide, and Astrology Forecast November 28-December 4

We are on the outskirts of a very intense and transformative time period.    We  have let you know in previous writings that the time period between late October 2010 through January 2011 was an important time period, especially for world events that will shake up and change our lives.   

The most powerful part of that time period is December 5 2010 through January 19 2011. 

That time period begins on December 5 with a fiery New Moon in Sagittarius, on the same day that Uranus goes direct. Rebellious spirits are ignited.  It ends at a Full Moon on January 19 that brings to climax the energies initiated at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on January 4 2011, an eclipse that is in opposition to the natal USA Sun from its birthchart of July 4 1776.  Forces in conflict with the USA are stoked and made active.

In the middle of the time period is an extremely significant Lunar Eclipse Full Moon  at 29+ degrees of Sagittarius/Gemini on the Winter Solstice on December 21 2010.  This combination of aspects provides us with a Universal signature for the winter season.

The last eclipse that happened on the day of a solstice or equinox was in June 2001, when there was a solar eclipse on the day of the summer solstice. Before that summer ended there was an attack on the twin towers in New York, on September 11.

There are so many more important aspects swirling around this time also.    The summer of 2010 has passed, but the aspects from that summer have not been triggered yet.    They will from December 7-15 when Mars goes through early Capricorn, touching off the Grand Cross and cardinal t-square and Saturn square Pluto from that 2010 summer.    In late January through early February Jupiter will travel through early Aries, triggering the same aspects again.   Trigger aspects tend to touch off events that the original aspects set in motion.

To know what may happen, it is therefore important to look at what has been brewing in the world this year leading up to the important time period we are now moving through.

For one the economy has continued to be shaky, clouded by the fact that recently the stock market has been doing fairly well.   It seems that the movement of the economy has been in neutral, everyone waiting to see if the direction will move up or down. The coming eclipses and trigger times should give us more clarity about the direction of the economy.

Korea has also been in intense volatility also. Earlier this year North Korea blew up a South Korean submarine and killed almost 50 sailors.  And most ominous, this past week North and South Korea fired at eack other, as North Korea fired across at an island belonging to South Korea.  It has been reported that 4 people were killed as a result, two who were civilians.   

This event has brought the ongoing conflict between North and South Korea to its most dangerous place since the end of the fighting in the Korean War in 1953.

And of course this battle brings China into the picture as it borders Korea and has North Korea as an ally country.   Since China is also in conflict recently with the USA economically, this exacerbates tensions between them.   China is a growing power in the world, and will not take a subordinate role to the USA.  The coming weeks during the “hot” astrological period ahead look very dangerous there.

The Middle East has also been boiling hot this year. In late spring a Turkish flotilla was travelling to the Gaza strip to bring supplies and food  to an impoverished people there. Israel felt threatened and attacked one of the boats in the flotilla and killed 9 Turkish citizens.  This move has pushed Turkey firmly away from “friendship” with Israel and closer in relationship to Iran and Iranian cohort Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians is going nowhere, Iran is not complying with western countries’ demands to abandon its nuclear program, and all is coming to a climax during the “hot” astrological period ahead, especially concerning Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon.

So the Middle East, Korea, and the economy will be in the spotlight during the astrologically hot period.   There has also been much focus on terrorism recently also, with increased security at airports and intelligence networks information about increased threats to European nations.

We can expect the strong possibility that big event(s) will change our lives during the coming couple of months, mostly through January 19, but potentially for the entire winter.

It is important now, in our personal lives, to be with change, to be flexible.   True evolution is about adaptation to changing conditions.  Do not hang on to anything too tightly, non attachment is most helpful now. And that includes attachment to “how it has always been”.   For instance look at the values of our homes now, as we were conditioned to believe those values would always go up, not down as they have been going.   

The paradigm is changing rapidly, yet the guardians of the old world are fighting fiercely to keep the status quo, to keep us thinking “inside the box”.   The guardians of the old paradigm will continue to fight for old ways, like keeping our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters oppressed and ostracized.  This is all transforming and before long we will be all together in a “Diversity in Unity and Equality” world.   Move with it and let go of the old paradigm.

The guardians of the old paradigm and old age want to keep us programmed to believe there are peoples out there who are our enemies, like now North Korea and Iran and perhaps soon China.  Remember we are moving to a multipolar world, where all are known as one family on the Earth, many races and faces, but all one. Do not get pulled into hatred by the media, which has mainly become a tool of the Powers that Be of the old paradigm and age.

We have all been programmed more than we acknowledge, and we need to return to free minds, hearts, souls and spirits. From that place we find Truth, and from that place we learn acceptance for all our greater family.

As we learn to put ourselves into the shoes of those who are from different cultures, we learn to live together as one community here on Earth.

Do not let fear or hatred grab you too tightly now, and that includes your experiences in your personal life.  Challenges we face now are tests to grow and transform, to heal old wounds that have kept our hearts hardened or closed. 

Week Ahead

This week is a waning last quarter moon, moving closer to a powerful lunar cycle begun on December 5 at the Sagittarius New Moon, as Uranus goes Direct also.  Before and around this New Moon are strong aspects to the charts of North and South Korea and Israel.  Also the charts of Obama and the USA will be heavily aspected over the next couple of weeks, as Mars moves over the early degrees of cardinal sign Capricorn.

Mars square Jupiter early this week brings spirits high and for some out of control.  Move with spirit, but keep yourself grounded. Late in the week, Mars squares Uranus to break open more active energies before the New Moon on December 5.   Conflicts can break open this week, but so can free spirits wanting to leave old and confining ways and patterns. 

It is getting more and more difficult to hold back the rising  tides of change.  Getting to be time to ride the tide.

Venus Direct, Coming Lunar Eclipse on Winter Solstice, Astrology Worldview for November 21-27

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on November 20, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Venus has now gone back direct- after almost 6 weeks of being retrograde.   More light is beginning to shine on our relationships, relationship issues and dynamics.   The retrograde period, for many, showed us what we need to look at and work on in our relationships.  People from our past came back in the flesh, or in our memories and dreams, to help us get greater perspective on our ongoing relationship patterns and challenges.

Some faced very intense and painful interactions in their relationships during the retrograde period, which brought back and up to the surface, the deep-seated challenges in the relationship.    Some have let go of relationships they came to understand will not work for them anymore. Others now are more clear what to work on, but need more time to work on them.  For some there has been deep heart healing, and true insights about how to make the relationship function better and more healthily.

What you have been working on with your mates, friends, and/or family members recently is part of a life-long  journey of relationship. Unfortunately, our schools do not have classes in how to be in relationships, and only a fortunate few are given really good examples of healthy relationships in their lives, especially in their childhoods.

We mostly learn “by the seat of our pants”, by trial and error.   And all too often we do not learn at all.    We carry on dysfunctional relationship patterns “inherited” from our parents and other ancestors. We hand them down to our children.    We bring them into our romantic relationships. Then we leave a relationship because we do not want to carry on those old and toxic patterns.   We meet someone new, who does not seem to fit those old patterns. But before too long, the same old stuff comes back, like a bad dream.

Then during these Venus retrograde time periods, we sometimes get an opportunity to work with, heal, and transform the patterns.  And though Venus has now gone direct, it has not gone full circle yet.  Venus will go back to where it began to go retrograde on December 20.    So whatever insights or breakthroughs have occurred during the retrograde period, we can now go further forward in the healing process.    And in turn can work on better understanding the patterns and transforming them.

Transforming does not mean curing.   We can work with our “negative” relationship tendencies, and let awareness of the patterns assist us in controlling the old “knee jerk” reactive responses.  We can become more aware also of what is really going on for our mates and friends.   We can let go of our projections on them, our seeing them as just like our mother or father or some old relationship of our past.

We can then see our mates more clearly, so we can have better empathy toward what they are thinking and feeling, how they have been wounded  from their families and old relationships.    We can then have more clear communication with our loved one, and hence more clearly express our needs and desires.   We then become less defensive and take things less personally.

And of course Venus Retrograde is not the only opportunity we have to heal and transform relationship patterns. There are many planetary transits, which help us breakdown old relationship patterns, and bring healing and breakthroughs.  So do not be afraid of a so-called difficult planetary transit, like one from Saturn or Pluto.  These transits help us to end what is not working, and to find new ways.

Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus

This Sunday November 20 is a Full Moon at 12:27 PM EST.  Two fixed signs Taurus and Scorpio are involved, The Sun is in Scorpio and the Moon is in Taurus, which together makes a Full Moon.   Opposing forces dig in and stop progress forward.  Before one can move forward, one must work out some power and control issues.  This is about relationship again.   What is the best way to work out power struggles?    Do you negotiate?  Do you share power?   Do you go to battle?

For some the control issues are internal.  They need to let go of needing to control so much, and instead learn to let life unfold more, out of their constant control.  For others this full moon is the dealing with difficult emotional issues and dramas, trying to find a calm and solid solution.

After December 5

Much will shift after the December 5 New Moon in Sagittarius at 12:36 PM EST.  Uranus goes Direct later that day, and important events are ready to explode into our lives.

This new moon is especially important because it begins a lunar cycle that will lead into a very powerful Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini on December 21, the same day as the Winter Solstice.  This event will trigger the summer of 2010 planetary aspects, that were highlighted by the Cardinal T-Square alignment.

Between the New Moon in Sagittarius and the Full Moon Eclipse, there is a Mars transit of the same cardinal alignment.    That transit is a trigger also, and big events may be touched off in the greater world and in our personal lives then. Mars will be triggering that cardinal alignment in the second week of December.

Potentially earth shaking events may happen then, and also through January and perhaps the winter season.  This is because there also a New Moon Solar Eclipse on January 4, which is closely opposite the natal USA Sun from its birth chart of July 4, 1776.   The Eclipse is at 13+ degrees of Capricorn and the USA Sun is at 13+ degrees of Cancer.

till next week,

World Events and World Changes, Astrology Forecast November 14-20

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 13, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The pace into an Aquarian Age accelerates and intensifies now.  That new Age is about equality, diversity in Unity, and liberation from governments, corporations, dictators, empires, or any authority that limits freedoms of peoples all over the world.   The gross inequities between rich and poor will be greatly narrowed in an Aquarian Age also.   

For all this to happen, the next 10 years will be quite eventful, and immensely transformational. The world as we know it now will look quite differently then.  The next few months of late 2010 and early 2011 will greatly open things up, and will be a doorway into this decade of great transformational change.

In the greater world, tight economic and military institutions all over the world have created an establishment and system that preclude true creative expression and freedom.  Hearts and minds all to often belong to the Corp/State, must answer to the Corp/State, to its rules and regulations, judgments and expectations.   These controls are ready to crack open in ways we have not seen before.  More chaos will be a result, and reactive state controls will follow.

Since we are moving more into Aquarian equality, all nations and peoples are becoming more and more equal.  This is easy to see as we witness the growing economies and power of China, India, Brazil, Turkey, Iran, and others.   The superpower of the United States is waning now, and we must all get used to this fact.  Our lives are changing as a result, and we Americans must learn how to simplify our lives more now.

We can expect to see big events coming now that will accelerate the process to greater equality and diversity in unity.   Our economy is about to face a great crisis, one that will shake up the world.  Through the ensuing chaos, the Powers that Be will try more and more controls to bring the world back to where it was before.  This will not work as the system is being deeply transformed.

Military challenges will follow and will also bring more chaos.  In the Middle East, soon there will be challenges in Lebanon and Israel, and Syria, and Iran.  The Middle East is close to exploding now.  The USA will get seriously involved to protect its perceived interests.  The sooner we leave the region, including Iraq and Afghanistan, the better it will be for us.  We will more rapidly develop alternative energy sources as a result. This conflict in the Middle East will shake up the whole world structure as more and more countries get involved and take sides.

President Obama will be challenged to find his true self, not this false self who has shown allegiance to the empire and old world.   He will rise to the occasion as Lincoln did when the USA was falling apart in Civil War.  His talents for bringing people together, for finding common ground, for intelligent problem solving will be greatly needed as the world falls apart around him. 

His own personal diversity in Unity, as a mixed race person, as someone who lived in Hawaii and Indonesia, as someone who has a name of Barack Hussein Obama, will be greatly needed to heal our country and be a midwife for our entry into an Aquarian Age.

The big events are likely to begin soon.  Could be as soon as this week.  Even more likely around the new moon of December 5.  The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on the Winter Solstice, on December 21, will be having an effect on our world and world events by then.

The intensity in the USA will increase at that Lunar Eclipse and continue to the Solar Eclipse on January 4. That one on January 4 is in Capricorn, closely in opposition to the USA natal Sun in Cancer.   Even now transiting Pluto is closely opposite the USA Venus; transiting Neptune conjuncts the USA Moon, and transiting Saturn is getting closer to squaring the USA Sun, which it will still be doing as the Solar Eclipse opposes the USA Sun on January 4. That is a lot of stess on the USA, and demands for change.

Additionally the aspects from this last summer, when there were all the cardinal sign interactions, are triggered by the coming Winter Solstice aspects.  And in late January and early February 2011 those points will be triggered again- by transiting Jupiter. Then in March 2011 Uranus begins a year long process of triggering those same early cardinal points. These triggers are flashpoints of change.

On a personal level we will all be challenged to move with the changes, to move our consciousness and our lives forward.  We will need to release old baggage, and old ways that do not fit into our personal evolution.   We are moving more and more into our authentic Self, out of ego control. We are moving more and more into Unity consciousness, diversity in Unity, and away from fears and judgments and hatreds that keep us chained to the old world dramas.  

Your life is a soul’s journey, a sacred voyage through life.  The Universe is always providings signs and messages, synchronicities to give light on your meaningful path.

Challenges and changes, even if they are painful at first, are opportunities to transform out of toxic situations and patterns that keep you distant from your heart and soul and free mind.  Truth and Love want to lead the way, but need to be uncovered from the wounds of our living in the world.

A new world beckons and is on the horizon.

AstrologyReport for November 14- November 20

This week Venus goes Direct after having been retrograde since October 8.  Venus goes direct on Thursday November 18.  Jupiter goes direct on the same day.   The relationship journey of the last 6 weeks is making a passage now. Jupiter on the same day as the direct Venus gives the potential of some kind of revelation or inspiration about relationship now.   You should begin to get more clear about the truth of the relationship, where it is headed in the future. The light should back on.  But the Venus cycle has not been complted yet.  Venus will return to where it started, when it first went retrograde, on December 20.

That will be full circle for relationship issues.   Loose ends should be tied by then, or even greater clarity will appear.  You may have more fully left a relationship by then, or perhaps you will have a rebirth on one.  Or a new relationship will be more fully manifested.   At the least you will have gained more wisdom and knowledge about realtionships, let go of old patterns and learned healthier ways.

Jupiter Direct brings a new round of expansion in your life.  It is time to follow your bliss or your inspiration about someone or something.   Your intution will lead the way more now.

See you next week,

Raging Rivers of Emotions and Astrology Forecast for November 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on November 6, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

I know many people are feeling very upset about the elections this past week. 

So much has changed in 2 years.  Many felt so elated when Barack Obama was elected President; felt that the world was going to transform in a very positive way. They were so tired of the George Bush years. They felt that the election of Obama would bring fresh new beginnings to our country and world.  There is much disillusion now.

Obama inherited a gravely difficult situation.   There was the beginning of a horrible recession. The failure of Leyman Brothers and the subsequent crash of our economy happened a couple of months before his election.   We were locked into two wars. One that was started in Iraq was begun on totally false premises and lies. Much of the world, and especially the Muslim world, had been losing faith in the leadership of America.   Democrats and Republicans were not working well together for the common good.   There was an obvious culture war in America that was getting worse.

Not much has really changed over the last two years. The recession is still looming over our world.  Our role in Iraq appears to be lessening, but we are now more entangled in Afghanistan.  The Muslim world at first seemed open to the new presidency.  But since America is still commited mainly to the welfare of Israel over the Palestinians, and because Americans seem still fearful and hateful toward Muslims, there is not much improvement between cultures.  And Democrats and Republicans still are at war with one another, and still do not make the common good their top priority.   And now with the emergence of the Tea Party, there now is even more culture war than before, or at least more out in the open of the mainstream world.

The Obama administration has accomplishments they point to, but not much has really changed in America.  In fact for most progressives, with the elections bringing in so many more republicans, things may seem worse than ever.

I know I had hoped the Obama election would help us to more gracefully transform out of an old Pisces Age, and to embrace more easily a new Aquarian Age.  But Obama has not been a strong leader or inspiration for new ideas and ways.  He has not set a strong paradigm for where we are headed as an American and human family.   Ex presidents like Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan set a strong tone and gave strong leadership during critical times in America.   They showed a way that they felt we needed to follow.   They each believed they had captured the pulse of the nation and world, and led accordingly.

Obama has been very gentle and intelligent, respectful and diplomatic.   He has not lit a fire in the American people that inspires new clear direction.  He has not talked directly to us to let us know where he wants to lead.  

But these times are so different than before.  The power of special interests and corporations is much more than ever before.  The Military/Economic establishment now does not allow much individual creative input.    The structure of our world is so closed to anything new or outside its rules and regulations.    We hoped Obama was “bigger than life” and could shake up the system, so new lights from the Aquarian Age could shine through.  But he does not seem to be that person.

So now it appears that our collective human journey is about to experience big shocks and aftershocks to break down these old ways and structures that attempt to keep out the light of the a new Paradigm and Age.  Obama always said during his candidacy that “we are the ones we have been waiting for”. Now it is more true than ever before, as we know no single person like Obama will be saving us and leading us forward.

The Pisces Age began with the savior Christ over two thousand years ago.  The Aquarian Age is about the people taking responsibility for their Earth and world. It is about liberating our selves from the modern world kings and queens, liberating ourselves from dictators and governments and corporations and religions that run and dominate our lives.

And now as we enter the time from late October 2010 to late January 2011, we face many astrological aspects that will trigger and release big events that will shake up our world, break down old obsolete ways, and bring breakthroughs into new and better ways.

We will know more and more that we are leaving an old paradigm and age and entering a new paradigm and Aquarian Age.

Astrology report for November 7-13

There was a strong New Moon in Scorpion last night that enflamed people and their relationships.  This New Moon in Scorpio has happened in the middle of the Venus Retrograde in Scorpio time period.  If any of your relationships issues broke open into more intensity around this new moon, you are not alone.   These issues were being suppressed and needed to be brought out into the open.   Now you can work at it from a more real and deeper place.    As Venus leaves Scorpio, while still retrograde, and enters Libra Sunday; you can more calmly and peacefully discuss the issues.  If horrible things were said during this retrograde period, remember much was likely said because you or someone else felt very wounded or rejected. Talking, especially in a counseling setting, can get to real and deeper issues, so you can heal, transform and work it out together.

It is important to remember that we are all so hurt from our families and prior relationships.   We are not taught how to have healthy and functional relationships. With this knowledge we can learn to not be so judgmental of ourselves and others. We can learn to listen and be listened to in more authentic ways.

The Scorpio New Moon of yesterday ignites our emotional energies and expression more.  We will feel more deeply and tend to express more emotionally. The energy field is more intense now and more primal energies and emotions are stoked.

To potentially add to the confusion of our emotions and the direction of our relationships and lives, Neptune is slowing down now and canging from retrograde to direct- overnight Saturday into Sunday.    We do turn our clocks back then also to give the impression of even darker days, as the night comes sooner.  Be careful not to dip into any big depression now, but instead use the increasingly yin energies to be more reflective, more appreciative, more sensitive to others and your own inner world and needs.

Do not push, especially with a prominent Neptune now, for more quick answers and direction. Surrender to the process and let the clarity unfold.    Yielding to the Universe’s movement now will relieve the stress. The river cannot be pushed now to flow at the pace you want it to.

Have a meaningful week,

Leo Knighton Tallarico
