Pisces slow flow into Spring and Astrology Forecast for February 20 to March 11

As the Sun moved into Pisces this past Friday February 18, we move into the final month of winter. Pisces is a water sign and a mutable sign, so it can be very changeable and elusive.    Pisces people can difficult to pin down, as they are flowing from one feeling or thing to another, without a sense of direction.     So, it being Pisces time of year, it is often helpful to “go with the flow”, to not be too consumed with any certain agenda.  

Virgo is the opposite sign and it can be very focused and even obsessed.  Pisces avoids too much focus, and instead needs to be able to shift, even shape-shift, depending on what circumstances and people it is presented with.

Mutable signs, as both Pisces and Virgo are, are always the last month of a season; and as such the climate can be very changeable on many different levels. Of course the weather is changeable- as some days we can feel Spring coming during Pisces time of year, but on other days the stark cold of winter is staring us in the face.

And in our lives and feelings, Pisces time of year can be changeable also.    A part of us may still want to hide out and stay inside our homes and inner world. Another part of us may be getting anxious for warm weather and sunnier days, for more activity and positive thoughts and feelings.

But remember that overall we are getting our selves ready for the new beginnings of spring.   We are letting go of the ghosts of our past season, the demons we have faced during the winter.   Often during winter we face our fears, we get sick more often, we get in touch with the fact that nature does not always feel alive and supportive.   The death of nature and the shortness of daylight minutes of a day remind us we are mortal creatures, and that life encompasses both light and dark.

But now during Pisces time of year, we can work with our inner demons, with the belief systems that keep us chained to negative and dysfunctional ways and patterns.    We can release our inner demons and get ourselves ready to embrace life more positively as we move closer to spring equinox.  This year it will be on March 20 at 7:21 PM EDT.

As happened in winter, spring and early summer will bring big  life changing world events.   The revolutions that began in Tunisia, spread to Egypt and now are brewing in Libya, Bahrain, Yemen, and Algeria are meant to wake up and shake up the whole world.  Do not be fooled into thinking the unrest in these countries will go away and life there will simply go back to “normal”.  It won’t.

And don’t be fooled into thinking that this is just happening to those people far away, and it has nothing to do with me or America. You are wrong.

This revolutionary activity is about changing the pardigm for living on Earth for humanity, it is a changing of the rule book, a powerful voyage into a new age.

Ther is an Old Guard, trying to perpetuate the existence of an old set of standards for human living that no longer serve us.    We have outgrown those ways of being.    We are on a fast track of evolution now, yet nevertheless the Neanderthal-like guardians of an old world will not easily give up their power and privilege.   And we citizens of this old world do not easily give up our false sense of security, a sense of stability from a toxic and corrupt world that at least is snugly familiar to us.

But our brothers and sisiters in the Middle East are sick and tired of their lives, minds and souls being owned by a few people. Those few people protect  systems that have provided them with wealth and privilege, while its loyal subjects suffer in subservience.

Just as our American ancestors fought the yoke of tyranny from the kings and queens guarding an old and corrupt English empire, so do the citizens of the Middle East countries fight for their liberty and dignity.

And we here in America are not as free as we think we are. We have all been programmed to be in allegiance to America, an America that fights to keep its lofty ideals, but in reality is now a “superpower” Empire that attempts to control the lives and welfare of peoples all over the world.   And the people here in the USA are fighting to keep afloat in a sinking ship, in an economy run by smoke and mirrors, an economy that benefits the wealthy and privileged, while so many others are disillusioned and suffering. The banks and corporations and big investors are thriving, while unemployment and foreclusures stay high.  We are getting closer, it seems to me, to another great fall in the economy.

So be prepared for the waves of revolution in the Middle East to cause a tsunami of change all over the world.   The old institutions and structures that have been running the world are beginning to crumble.    The old power structures are shifting and transforming.  There will be no superpowers in our future, instead we are looking at more equity in a world of Diversity in Unity.

Power is coming more and more to the people, who as a free people will take more individual responsibility for the world, not give their power away to dictators, goverments and mega-corporations.      The Soviet Union fell, the Berlin wall fell, the white’s control of South Africa fell, Mubarak fell.   We are learning that huge militaries and economic structures do not control the Universe. When it is time for someting to fall and die, and if at the same time the people are ready to claim their power, then Empires will fall. In fact they all eventually do fall.

And in your own life, the same thing can be said.  You can overcome what may seem like insurmountable odds, in order to free your self and claim your self, your soul and your individual power.   There will be a part of you that wants to cling to the Old Guard inside of you, to the status quo.

And there will be another part of your self that is attracted to a new paradigm for living your life. You want to evolve out of the old and painful beliefs and attitudes and patterns that keep you unhealthy and unhappy.  Yet fears of loss of security sometimes seem to cripple your desire to heal and transform your life and soul.  You cannot see how you can, on a practical level make the changes.

But the old ways are falling out in the world and in our personal lives.    Astrological aspects continue to promise great change, promise to bring earthquakes of evolutionary change into our lives.  You also may be ready to leave those situations and inner demons that dominate and control your psyche and life. If so you will get much help now, as the energies are of freedom and liberation, in Egypt and in each one of us.

So use these last days of winter to ponder and reflect, to begin to release the demons of fear that hold you back from actualizing your full potential.

This week on Friday the 25th Jupiter will square Pluto.   Issues in your life and in the world should intensify. This would apply to Thursday through Saturday

See you again for our next forecast on Saturday March 12. I will be out of the country the next two weeks and staying away from my “typewriter”.  Whe I return, we will be getting ready here in America to shift our clocks to daylight saving time and be only 8 days from spring.  There will be a New Moon in Pisces on March 4 at 3:46 PM EST, before I come back.

take care till then,

Egypt, the beginning of the world wide revolution, and astrology forecast for February 13-19

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on February 12, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

EGYPT——Aptly and synchronistically, during the time the Sun has been in Aquarius, the revolutionary energies of “power to the people” have reigned.   19 days ago no one would ever have imagined what has happened.  One of the oldest civilizations known to humans has thrown out a dictator, who held power reminiscent of Pharaohs from many centuries past.   Millions of Egyptian citizens have been protesting against Mubarak and the government and for the rights of a free people of Egypt.  The essence of Aquarius is individual human rights and freedom, as part of a diversified unity in community.  In an Aquarian Age, the power and responsibility for the world is in the hands of the people, and people must be allowed to be self-determining.

The USA, with its natal Moon in Aquarius, helped create the mold for what is happening in Egypt and what will spread all over the globe.  Back during the American Revolution, our American ancestors led us to move beyond the power of Kings and Queens and to the power of a free people. The same thing happened in France a few years later.

Now , as we are on the cusp of an Aquarian Age, Aquarian energies of liberation are on the rise.  As we told you in previous writings, 2010 was about feeling the changes without the changes truly manifesting yet.   2011 is about accelerated waves of change into the Aquarian Age.

Even though over 300 people died and many more were seriously wounded, the Egyptian Revolution has so far happened rather peacefully.    Hopefully this tone will continue, but we can only hope this is so.   Remember that the Egyptian military has taken control of Egypt now, so there may be firm resistance against many of the ideals of this youth based Egyptian revolution.    There is bound to be conflicts between the old guard and the new waves of change. Nevertheless, there is ultimately no stopping the beat of transformational change.

So hold on tight. The ride will get more intense later in the year.  This is only the beginning of vast transformational change. There is even more powerful transformational change ahead.

We told you prior to the eclipses in December and early January, especially because of the Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice, that Big Events would happen during the winter season of 2011.  This revolution in Egypt is the magnitude of big event we anticipated.

The astrological symbols for more dramatic change are many.    Jupiter in early Aries triggered the cardinal t-square from last summer. This happened during the Egyptian uprising.  Uranus in Aries, starting in mid March, and lasting all year 2011, will also trigger the cardinal t-square.    

 And in June and July this summer, there will be 3 eclipses in a row, the last being a Solar Eclipse Grand Cross, again in relatively early cardinal signs. The message remains new seasons of change, as cardinal signs are the first signs of seasons: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.

If you have your Sun, or any other planets from your natal chart, in early to mid degrees of cardianl signs, you especially will be going though big changes. 

You may feel very motivated to free your self of situations and people who keep you held back, who make you feel you cannot be true to your authentic self.   Often one needs to consider practical matters before leaping out from bad situations. But the pressure to get out may get to be too much.  If that happens your faith will be tested. 

The people in Egypt put their lives on the line for their freedom. Your ancestors in America put their lives on the line for freedom from the controls of the King of England.  No one has the right to own your heart and mind and soul-  no boss, no spouse, no partner, no parent, no landlord.

Yes it is true that sometimes one must suck it up and stay in chains. But there comes a time when you know “it is time”!  And when that happens you know you must go in order to keep your soul and/or sanity.

And yes here in America, so many of us think we are free, and in comparison to many other places on the globe, in many ways of course we are.

But it is also true that so many of our citizens are sheeple who have been programmed to think and act in certain ways.  They stay in slumber while our country has been taken over by big government and big corporations and big military.     The people here may believe that our country is “of the people, by the people and for the people”, but the reality is otherwise.   Sold out representatives toe the party line, do not think for themselves, similar to their constituents. They are in allegiance to what President Eisenhower called the Military-Industrial Complex.  It is the modern version of an Empire.    As Eisenhhower said, the Complex will threaten our individual rights and freedoms unless we wake up.

So, will this revolutionary energy also affect the USA?     Yes, but how it happens seems still in doubt.     This year 2011 will show us how, as this is a year of big revolutionary and evolutionary winds of change.

At the least the world around us will change so much as to challenge us to make big changes also. The Middle East has begun to transform in a big way, and this transformation will greatly affect Israel and the USA.   If they do not become more humble and open to working with Arab and Muslim peoples, they will go through much pain and suffering.

We are entering a multi-polar world structure, no longer one dominated by a Superpower or superpowers. It is time to begin to respect all peoples all over the world as equals in a widely diverse community.  Iran is the country most hated now by the USA and Israel.  They are the evil enemy now.

We must quickly change our paradigm and viewpoint and accept this changing world.  All peoples must be accepted and respected and listened to.  If we do not change rather quickly, we can expect many painful lessons.

This week  

The highlight of this week ahead is Friday, when there is a full moon in Aquarius/Leo and later that day the Sun moves into Pisces.      Climax and some resolution between opposites is sought.    Aquarius is the power of the individual and group and Leo is the power of the personality.     Watch for the clash between the two to play out later this week.

Sun in Pisces brings in the last monh of winter. It is time to surrender to your inner world, to the unseen spiritual world.   As you get in touch with these deeper realities, feel more, increase your sensitivity to others. Pisces wants more empathy and that can only happen if you get the spotlight off your self, and instead tune into what someone else is saying or going through. Your relationships will improve as a result. So will your soul.

See you next week,

Liberation and Self Determination in an Aquarian Age, and Astrology Forecast for February 6-12

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on February 5, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

During the eclipse season, and as Jupiter triggered the powerful aspects from the summer of 2010, important events have taken center stage in our lives.   The biggest and most important development are the liberation movements in Tunisia and Egypt, and the intitial spark of liberation and revolution in Yemen, Algeria, Jordan, and Syria.  

We have been letting you know that the Middle East is an integral part of the transformation from an old age and paradigm into a new Aquarian Age, and that big events would happen there.   Now that area is in the beginning of an important process that will eventually shift the power structure of the whole world.

It is not insignificant that most of the major conflicts that the USA has been involved in over the last 30-35 years or so have been in the Middle East and its surrounding area.  There was the conflict in Lebanon during the Reagan years; the terrorist attacks during the Olympics in the ’70s; the Iranian crisis in 1979/80; the Desert Storm war with Iraq in 1990/91;  many Palestinian crises with Israel; the USA attack on Afghanistan after 9-11; and the sabre rattling against Iran over the last few years.

Oil is a big reason for the conflicts, but the presence of Israel in the Middle East is the biggest reason. Israel is a strategic partner of the western world, especially the USA.  They give the USA a foothold on the geopolitically important Middle East.  The USA is hated by many in the the Arab and Muslim world largely because of its close relationship and obvious partiality to Israel.    That relationship was a central reason/excuse for the 9-11 attack on the twin towers in the USA.

The countries that are experiencing the revolutionary forces of change, most notably Egypt, are strong allies of Israel and the USA. This is true even though the citizens of these countries are quite arguably anti-Israel and therefore anti-USA.   The upheavals in these countries threaten the status quo and threatens the allegiance these countries  have to the Israel and the USA.

Do we believe in democracy regardless of who wins?  We did not when Hamas was victorious in Palestine.  We declared them terrorists and did not recognize their legitimacy, even though the Palestinian people spoke loud and clear otherwise.

The credibility and soul of the United States is at stake now.  Do we believe in true democracy, self determination for people and countries?  Do we truly believe in liberation and freedom and equality for all.  Do we truly now keep the integrity of our founding principles, principles that are “god given” Universal values, principles aligned with the USA natal Moon in Aquarius, as we collectively enter an Aquarian Age?

If the USA continues to try to influence the Egyptian people’s process in order to keep our and Israel’s influence in the Middle East, are we staying with our founding principles?   So far we havebeen trying to walk the line between supporting the liberation of the Egyptian people and supporting the dictator Mubarak- who has been in league with the USA and Israel.   How can we believe in democracy and the will of the people when we support dictatorships in places like Egypt and Saudi Arabia?  How can we continue to speak out against injustices in the world when we support such governments?

Make no mistake about it, what is happening in the Middle East, with all the liberation movements, is affecting us all.    There is something huge and  profoundly important opening up in human consciousness and human lives.  It is not just about the Middle East or Arabs or Muslims. It is about walls of oppression falling down so individual human beings can be free and valued, self determining and responsible for themselves and the world they live in.

It happened in the Soviet Union in the late ’80s and early ’90s. It happened when the Berlin wall came down. It happened in South Africa when Nelson Mandela left prison to lead the black people to freedom, liberation and equality. It happened in Iran when they overthrew the Shah who was a puppet for the USA and western world.

The Aquarian Age vibration is sounding deeper, louder and with increasing clarity. It is rumbling inside each of us.  We can use the courageous energies of Aries, which is permeating our consciousness now as Jupiter and soon Uranus travel through that sign.   We can begin to more and more confidently leave our own individual oppressive situations, so we can be more free to find our authentic selves, to know more about our purpose, to be more deeply connected to our free souls, minds, and spirits.

But it is important to realize it is not always easy to leave a familiar though confining and oppressive situation. It has not been easy for the Egyptian people to stand up to the Egyptian government and military who represent a semblance of security and stabilty for them. It is not easy to speak up to a boss at work or to leave a relationship that is stable though limits your freedom to be true to your self.  It is not easy to break out of family roles or expectations or dysfunctional patterns in order to be more fully true to your real and authentic self.

The astrological aspects that seek to break us out of these old stuck patterns so we be free to find and actualize our selves and our potential destinies will not end any time soon.  The pressures to break out will get stronger.  Liberation movements around the world have just begun.  If you belive we can all just ride through the strorm and then go back to same-old, same-old, you are mistaken. 

The waves of big world and personal transformational change have just begun

Spring and summer 2011 will bring even bigger events and changes than is happening in Egypt.   There are 3 eclipses in a row from early June through early July, the last one on July 1 a Solar Eclipse New Moon Grand Cross in Cancer that is more powerful than the one last summer.

It is best to get out of old stuck habits that give you the illusion of order and stability.  Release them and begin to open up to the natural energies in your heart and soul. They will bring you where you need to go and you will be safe in the arms of the Universe- as long as you stay in your personal empowerment and creative choice as well.

This week

The week ahead is the first quarter of the moon since the turning point last week of a New Moon in Aquarius on the same day as Imbolc. That ended the last lunar cycle of the current round of eclipses, and many truly felt shift to less heaviness and “darkness”. Keep riding that wave forward this coming week, until Thursday/Friday when the second quarter moon begins in Taurus.  It will be time then to pause your movement forward to make sure you are grounded and practical in your endeavors. The Full Moon will not be until February 18, right before the Sun moves into Pisces.  It will be a Leo Full Moon that day.

See you next week,

Leo
