Storms of Change and Asrology Forecast for August 28-September 3

The intensity of change continues to increase.  Here on the east coast of the USA we experienced an earthquake a few days ago, which is very unusual here, and following close behind a huge hurricane is now coming up the coast.

Washington DC, the center of government in the USA was close to the epicenter of the earthquake.  Now New York, our biggest city and the home of Wall Street, the economic center, is about to get deluged by this storm.

The east coast of the USA is where the Sun rises and the day begins here in America.  This coast is where the new enters our shores, and where the pilgrims entered this land and began the European experience of the New Land and eventual country.  This coast is where the 9-11 attack was thrust upon us, in New York and Washington DC, great symbols of our country. This attack began a new era in America, a time of the War on Terror, and Homeland Security.   Many would argue this began a fear and security obsession time period in America.

These current weather events are symbols of new storms of great change that are ready to enter our home country USA.   Let us hope this time period will shift us more positively into progress into new and better ways to live and think.

The USA economy, which is the engine that ignites the world economy, has been getting shaky and more change is the way.  Our world wide economy is on the verge of great transformation. Disparity between rich and poor is ripe to transform into an eventually more equitable system.

Revolutionary energies, begun early this year 2011 in North African countries, will spread over more of the globe, including the USA.

The glue that has held the old paradigm for how we live and think and organize our lives is coming apart.    New energies, which bring new ideas and possibilities are waiting to flood our minds and hearts and lives, so we can create a new paradigm for living on the Earth.

In an Aquarian Age, we know more that we are all ONE, all is connected in our human family, all over the Earth and all over the Universe.   We get even more in touch with our individuality, our individual authenticity, but learn to connect in community, with tolerance and respect for other peoples and creatures.

This consciousness, of individual difference in connected Unity with everything, is the foundation for our new paradigm for living on Earth.

The old survival of the fittest mentality, which has turned us against one another, transforms into a knowing that survival now is dependent on cooperation and unity.

If you want to know how to be part of this New Aquarian Age, it is imperative to heal the old wounds and attitudes and beliefs that keep you in fear; and with lack of trust; and separate from others in your consciousness.

As you heal and transform, you open your mind and heart, and let in new light and energy that propels you forward in your evolution into Aquarian Age consciousness.

Challenging events will continue to flood into our world so we can humbled into knowing we are all ONE, not just unified here as Americans, but knowing we are all one family all over the world.

The Comet Elenin is a symbol of the speeding up of change this late summer and autumn.  As change speeds up you will be helped to release that which impedes your personal evolution.

Remember you are letting go of old programming by our old world that has taught you to fear and to dishonor your soul, free mind and heart.  It has taught you to not trust life and the Universe, to not trust your fellow human, to not trust the natural cycles and symbols and synchronicities shown all the time by the Universe and Nature.

We are ready to move with this new change.   Do not let the media bring you into too much fear mode.  Of course use caution and stay alert, but do not buy into the paradigm that does not recognize the sacred meaning of all events. Remember that all the dots in our world are connected and all happens meaningfully.

Mercury went direct Friday night August 26 and there is New Moon in Virgo this Sunday August 28.   The airwaves are clearing up and you can begin to contemplate more seriously where you are going and what you want to do.  Issues will get more clear over the next few days and decisions will seem easier to make.    Perhaps you will better understand now why it is good to wait before jumping to conclusions during Mercury Retrograde.

This New Moon in Virgo will add to the energies of moving forward, but with Virgo the forward movement is to better order your life. Your logical linear mind will begin to work better now, but be careful with Virgo energies. They can get you to being overly obsessive and perfectionistic.   It is best with a Virgo New Moon to fix what needs to be fixed or repaired this coming month ahead and to “get down to business”.  The New Moon in Virgo is at 11:04 pm Sunday night, so we are in dark moon mode until Monday night as the moon shows a crescent, signaling new beginnings.   During dark moon it is a good time to make intention and prayer for the month ahead.

On Tuesday August 30, Jupiter turns from Direct to Retrograde.   When a planet changes directions its energes permeate our life more intensely.  Jupiter is about expansion and upliftment.  So you may feel more inspiration to get moving. along with the New Moon.

There is much spirit and magic coming our way through all the storms and crises.  Keep your mind, body and spirit healthy now. That will help you stay centered and connected to your authentic self and the Universe.

See you next week,

Leo

Revolution, Evolution and Astrology Forecast for August 21-27

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 20, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

If you have been waiting for things to shift, or for some clarity and direction, or for decisions to be made, or for things to open up, help is on the way.

We are now in the last week of Mercury retrograde, as Mercury will go direct on August 26.  Two days later on August 28 there is New Moon in Virgo.

Before that, in the immediate week ahead, we are in the last quarter Moon- lasting until that New Moon in Virgo on August 28.

Last quarter moons are the last part of the waning Moon phase and are times to slow down and go inside and reflect.    Mercury finishing up its retrograde time gives us the same theme of going inward to contemplate.

Do not “push the river” now,  let it flow. Let go and let nature take its course.  Wait for the air to clear and for openings to appear before you thrust forward with your plans.  I know how easy it is to get anxious when we have to wait, but learning patience and trust helps our psychological and spiritual development, and lessens stress.  Life is changing however, and the status quo cannot be held for long.

We are feeling differently inside.    We know we are in the beginning stages of a vast transformation of our human lives here on planet Earth.   And the changes you are going through in your consciousness and personal life are meant to put you in line with these bigger changes.

There is revolution swirling all around the Earth.  People are getting tired of having their lives controlled by forces outside themselves.  Big Corporations and Big Governments are not serving our human family.   So many people are feeling like they want to be liberated.  So many live their lives with no real of sense of purpose.  It is because they have been programmed to give their loyalty to a state or job or family, and have lost their sense of their own individuality, their own free mind and heart and soul.

Do you believe your short time on this Earth is meant to be in service to the rich and privileged who act as if they own the Earth and the creatures who dwell upon it?  Our ancestors and founders of America believed otherwise. They set up our country on the belief that all are created equal and endowed by the Universe with natural rights including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  They believed the world belongs to “we the people”, not governments or corporations or privileged royalty.

Yet our country has left its principles and has  become an empire, invading and colonizing other peoples and taking away their liberty and their god given right of self determination. It is run by mega corporations and dyfunctional government serving its own interests, far removed from the needs of the people.

And all over the world, not just here in America, wealthy and privileged run the every day lives of ordinary people, who slave to just make ends meet and do jobs not aligned with their true selves and true potential of contribution to our human community here on Earth.

So revolution is stirring, it has been sweeping lives in the Middle East and Northern Africa. It is beginning to happen in England and will before long envelope much of the world.   The great transformation of our economic system is happening now as the markets all around the world are plunging.   Great empires are falling.

The Soviet Union fell in the ’90s and its downfall was preceded by its failure in Afghanistan.  The USA empire is now in its downfall, and the failure in Afghanistan is growing into reality.  Empires have no role in an Aquarian Age, or do Big Corp or Big Government or privileged royalty.  There is no more need for Romes on this Earth.  The USA needs to return to its original values.

Many believe the cusp of the Aquarian Age was approached when Uranus was discovered in 1781.  Synchronistically, two revolutions that demanded power to the people were erupting surrounding that time period: The American and French revolutions. Uranus is considered the ruling planet of Aquarius.

So you can see what the Aquarian Age will be like.  It is to be “of the people, by the people, and for the people” all over the world, not just here in America. It is about equality and Diversity in Unity.

So now as life thrusts us into situations that shake up our lives, remember you are being helped to leave the situations and people in your life that keep you chained. You are being helped to find your free and authentic self and to connect with the greater Universe.  Your connection with the Universe will serve to bring you to your true life and real purpose for living. It will help you to evolve your consciousness and life aligned with the Aquarian Age we are fast forward moving into.

This coming week we meet up with the Sun going into Virgo on Tuesday August 23 and then the Moon meeting up with the Sun in Virgo on August 28 to form a New Moon in Virgo.  This means it is soon time to get down to business, to face reality, to get your life in order.

As Mercury goes direct this coming Friday August 26, clarity begins to form and then we feel a nudge forward at that Virgo New Moon.

Late September and October bring meaningful movements of Comet Elenin and October 28 is the end of the Mayan Calendar according to expert researcher Carl Calleman.

Therefore we can expect transformational energies to accelerate.    We could be looking at big world change and world events before October 28.  Especially look for continued shocks to the old economy, for more world revolutionary movements, for big changes in the Middle East, especially in Israel/Palestine.

This past week showed stock plunges all over the world, serious revolutionary movements in Libya and Syria, and conflict greatly intensifying between Israel and the Palestinians.

See you next week,

Leo

Age of Aquarius and Astrology Forecast for August 14-20.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are almost half way through the current Mercury Retrograde period, and today Saturday May 13 at 2:58 PM EDT we experience a Full Moon in Aquarius.

Approximately 2 weeks ago there was a New Moon in Leo, which started the lunar cycle that climaxes with the Full Moon today.  At that time Mercury had slowed down, waiting to go retrograde a few days later.   America then was stewing in a most heated national crisis that concerned the debt ceiling and budget crisis.

Republicans and Democrats were doing their all too familiar dysfunctional dance, one that keeps us all moving around in the same circles over and over again.

Republicans, the hard asses of government, refused to budge from their so-called principles. Democrats screamed and whined about what assholes the Repubicans are, and then, as always, gave in to make peace in the dysfunctional family. So in the end the country keeps moving more conservative, because no one stands up for progressive principles anymore.  The so-called progressives end up enabling the conservatives and keeping the country in the hands of the corporations and special interests.

It is “we the people” who are suffering from all this.  If you have been paying attention, you realize that while more and more people are unemployed and suffering financially, the corporations and banks are enjoying record profits.

So as we are now half way through Mercury retrograde and the current lunar cycle, we see this past week that the stock market has gone way down, Standard and Poor’s credit agency has downgraded the USA economy, and that the “experts” are very worried we are on the cusp of a double dip recession or worse a Depression.  By the time this Mercury Retrograde period is over on August 26, more clarity should  appear about the economy and its direction.  Our economy and world are going through a monumental transformation on the way to an Aquarian Age.

And then 2 days after Mercury goes direct on August 26, on August 28 there will be a new lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Virgo.  Keep in mind that we are now still in the Leo New Moon lunar cycle, so we will want to play for a while more before we come to grips with reality, which Virgo is so good at doing. After the Virgo New Moon we get to seeing life more realistically.

So for now, continue enjoying summer and for many summer vacation.

The Aquarian full Moon today shines a bright light on our socially conscious motives.     Get in touch with your individuality and authentic self, and from that place decide what causes and groups you feel most aligned with.   What principles do you believe in? Commit to living your life in accordance with those principles, and to finding a community or family of friends that would make you feel like “birds of a feather are flocking together”.

You may think you are weird or unusual, but if you find your “people”, you will begin to feel better about your self.  Aquarius is a complicated sign, in that it  concentrates on being a very distinct and unusual individual, yet also desires to be in a group or community.  The challenge is there because Aquarius often feels uncomfortable in most any group or community, as it feels so different.

The presence of Comet Elenin will be felt much more in September, especially late September and also October. What does this comet portend?

I believe we will follow that comet into a kind of Twilight Zone of reality.     Already it is feeling like everything is so different, so out of normal comfort zones.  And I believe that we will feel that new reality more and more as we move into late summer and autumn.  The Mayan Calendar according to researcher Carl Calleman ends on October 28 2011, not in December 2012.

If that is true, then that fact and the coming of Comet Elenin will show us new zones of consciousness and vastly changing lives soon.

There will be surprises and openings into new ways of seeing ourselves and life.   Many are already opening their eyes to other dimensions of reality and to new feelings about time.  It is getting more and more easy to peer into alternate realities, to see the world from all new perspectives.

There is a vast inner world that cannot be seen with our two eyes, but can be seen with our third eye.  That eye will open more and more as we pass between worlds and ages. As other dimensions open up, we are more and more able to release the old ways, the old programming from a dying paradigm and age.

Do not let your sense of reality and security be controlled by the the mainstrean media, corporate mindset,  government agencies, or family dramas.   Get more in touch with your deeper soul and the truth that comes from a free mind and heart.    Those truths will truly set you free, and will keep you connected with your authentic self and the Universe.  From that place you can trust your experience and can trust life.  All is unfolding just right, and there is nothing to be afraid of.

When you are aligned, you are guided to the right people and places and situations that your soul needs in order to grow and evolve.   Life is a meaningful experience that is shrouded in a mystery we can never completely understand. Trust is so important to our journey, as is feeling safe.

And since so many of us have experienced such hurtful and even traumatic events in our earlier years, it is essential to go through a time in our lives dedicated to personal healing and transformation.  That healing and transformation helps us to release the old fears and shames and resentments to enough of a degree to enable us to more deeply and firmly connect with the love and truth that are the pillars of the Universe.

From that place we learn to trust and commit ourselves to our sacred soul journey on this Earth. We learn all of us humans are on this journey together, regardless of our differences. We are all part of the same family, diverse but equal and in Unity.

The challenges coming our way, and they will be great, are meant to help us transform our family and lives out of an old and dying Pisces Age, and into a new Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo

Comet Elenin and the Mayan Calendar and Astrology Forecast for August 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have been alerting our readers for some time now that there is a shifting of Ages from a passing Pisces Age, begun over 2000 years ago, to a new Aquarian Age that we are on the cusp of.

This new age is one of equality, of diversity in unity.   And true unity is rooted in unity consciousness, a place inside each of us that knows there is oneness in the Universe, that all the dots of life are connected meaningfully.

We are on this train of movement into a new age, and the train is picking up speed. Many are experiencing this as a feeling that time is speeding up.  As we have recently moved through many recent powerful and important planetary alignments, human life on Earth has been rapidly changing.

The USA is an important component in the global shift that is in alignment with the now rapid movement into an Aquarian Age.  As we are evolving into a world of greater equality and Diversity in Unity, superpowers that run the world as an Empire do not fit.

So the USA is now going through a transformation that will bring it into greater equality with other nations in the world.   The economy here is going to tumble quite a bit over the next few months;  and since the USA and its dollar influence so much of the world economy, all the world will go through economic transformation now.  The recent debt debacle, the stock market fall this week, and the first ever USA credit downgrade expose the weakness of the USA economy. It will get much worse.

There are a few things to consider as we move through the second half of summer and early autumn 2011.    There is the Mayan Calendar according to the expert researcher Carl Calleman, and the movements of comets Honda and Elenin and perhaps Levy also.

There is a great synchronicity between the end of the Mayan calendar on October 28, according to Calleman, and the movements of Honda and especially Elenin.     Elenin is the one to watch most closely, as it conjuncts the Sun and Mercury around September 26, and makes its closet approach to Earth around October 17.

According to Calleman, whose work I have been studying since 2000, the 9th and final wave of the Mayan calendar began on March 9.  On March 11 Elenin was conjunct the Sun.  That day the enormous earthquake erupted in Japan, an earthquake that killed so many and broke open the nuclear reactor there.    So there appears to be a connection between the Mayan calendar according to Calleman, the comet Elenin, and events on Earth.   As we just stated, Elenin will conjunct the Sun again on September 26 this year.

And of course keep in mind that the  last 3 eclipse seasons have been a part of rare and profound astrological alignments, which also show us what important times we are in now.

The first wave of the Mayan Calendar, according to him began over 16 billion years ago, so this 9th and final wave ending on October 28 2011 ends an enormous grand cycle of time.    Since we are also ending a 2160 year Pisces astrological age around the same general time period, we know we are in a most important and profound time for our human family here on Earth.

In order to get to this world of equality and Diversity in Unity, there needs to be not only a vast world economic transformation, but also a changing of the paradigm for living on the Earth.  And the old power structure must come down in order for us to live lives more connected and respectful to each other, to the Earth, and to the Universe.

Does it not seem obvious now that the old world structure will not really change on a core level unless great events occur.  Yes the old economic structure is falling.    And likely more great earthquakes will erupt.   And world war may come soon too, probably concerning Iran.

The train of Unity consciousness is getting stronger and it is coming against a huge block in the body of human consciousness.  In order for this block to be cleared, all the toxins inherent in the block must be brought up and released so the new energies can move through.  I am sure you in your personal life have experienced these types of transformational  time periods.

Perhaps you worked through some blocks in your body and psyche that needed to be cleared and transformed.  Your fears and negative attitudes and beliefs brought you to crises in your life.  These negative energies were programmed into you in your early life and family and by society.   These programs were counter to and blocked your deeper soul’s wisdom of truth and love and sacred meaning to life.  They caused you dis-ease of mind, soul, spirit and body.

And then the crisis hit, a death or sickness or breakup or breakdown or abandonment or loss of income or job or home, etc. That crisis forced you to reevaluate your beliefs, your health, you way of living, life itself.   That crisis motivated you to change, to heal, to transform your life.

This is what our whole country and world is facing now.   The old programs, the old paradigm is no longer working.  We as a culture are dis-eased, blocked from the truth and love, from the wisdom of our souls, free minds and hearts.  It is time for a huge breakdown so the blocks can be broken through.

The most recent breakdowns for the USA have not changed at a core level our way of doing business in the world.   The 9-11 tragedy did not move our country to more deeply contemplate our own role in the world and how that influenced our fate.   We only saw enemies who needed to be killed.    Unity consciousness tells us we are all connected to one another, and that our actions and energy attract to us in like kind.  We did not think of how we needed to change our way of relating to the rest of the world, we did not see that we have invaded and dominated other peoples, especially in the middle east.

The western world has been colonizing other countries and peoples for many years now, and this has put us in a very vulnerable position- karmically speaking.

Transformation is ending the idea that we are special and privileged, and that those who do not agree with us are bad people and enemies who need to be dominated and killed.   We have troops all over the world and are now involved in 3 wars in other people’s countries. And none of those countries attacked us, which is the only arguable reason to be in war, to protect one’s people.

Hopefully our wiser elders will gain stronger voice in our world soon, so we do not have to face darker and darker events in order to humble ourselves, change our beliefs and attitudes, break down our collective blocks from our deeper American Soul and values, and connect with unity consciousness.

We will soon find out how valid the viewpoint of Calleman about the October 28 end date really is.   And what influence does Comet Elenin have with all this?  And how is this all connected with the movement into an Aquarian Age? And in a future blog we will look at the how the Hopi prophecies fit into the picture too.

For now, astrologically speaking, we are in the beginning of Mercury Retrograde, lasting until August 26.  Since Mercury has been closely opposite Neptune for the last couple of weeks, Mercury has been playing tricks even more this time than usual.

So when upsetting events come into your mind and life now, do not get anxious or panicked. Do not jump to conclusions too quickly.  Let the process play out naturally.  Let events unfold before coming to an answer, if one can now be found.   Mercury retrograde can be quite the trickster, so don’t get fooled.  Trust spirit and the soul’s wisdom more now, not your linear thinking mind.

If people or memories are returning to your life and/or consciousness now, spend time re-connecting and reminiscing, but don’t get sucked up in any dramas that take you far off course. Wait for Mercury to go back direct before taking the plunge.  Your perspective is shifting now, and you need to let the retrograde period run its course.  This does not mean to be afraid or superstitious. If you need to make decision or do something important, and it cannot wait, then it is part of natural order and you have to deal with it now.

See you next week,

Leo
