End of the Empire and Astrology Forecast for September 25-October 1

Pun Alert- We are “falling” down into Autumn now, since we just passed through the Autumn Equinox Friday.  And it may truly feel like falling to some this year especially. It has not been an easy transition into Fall this year 2011 for many.  A lot of people have taken on colds and flus, and others are feeling quite out of sorts.

Remember that the Autumn Equinox is a turning point out of more Yang and outer directed energies, and into more inner directed Yin energies. Your feelings may be calling you, and will find ways to get your attention now.  Metaphorically, this is the Sunset time of year, as night is wanting to move in. You may feel some “down” feelings as summer has ended and cooler darker days are ahead.

It is time to pause and begin to check in to see what is going on inside of you.   Once you adjust to the shift, you will be fine.

It is also Libra time of year and so it is time to take the focus away from more active and self indulging interests, and instead to think more with social consciousness, with growing awareness of others.   This Monday will begin to add to this theme of making relationship as there is a New Moon in Libra on Tuesday September 27 at 7:10 AM EDT.

I know many of you, as you check in deeper inside your self, are or will be feeling that great change is moving through our collective lives.  Many have told me they are feeling an earthquake of change beneath the surface.

It is becoming more and more obvious that the Powers That Be are running around in a panic to keep putting more patches on the sides of the Titanic to stop the water from coming in and sinking the economic ship. We are on the verge of world economic transformation.

Our American two party system is dysfunctional and people are more and more not trusting its ability to solve our nation’s problems. Corporate power is running our world and buying out our congressional leaders.  America and the Western World are becoming more and more insensitive to the plight of real people.  Doing business as usual has become more important than doing what is right.

This week’s execution of a man, Troy Davis, who new information suggested may be innocent of murder of a Georgia off duty policeman, was unconscionable.

This week also the USA threatened to veto in the UN, the request by the Palestinians to become a state. What has been happening to the Palestinians is similar to what was happening in South Africa twenty years ago. Israel occupies Palestinian land and its people and keeps them under their control. It also has been putting up more and more settlements for their own people in lands that should belong to the Palestinians.

The USA used to at least try to be an honest mediator for the Israelis and Palestinians, but now they are obvious patrons and partners with Israel and no longer are fair and just.

As the Arab world continues to grow and open up in their Arab Spring revolutions, there has been a shift away from alliances with Israel, Europe and the USA. Also keep in mind that Europe and the USA have historically invaded and colonized these lands. They still occupy Iraq and Libya and Afghanistan, and have heavy influence in many other Arab and Muslim countries.  These peoples are not only breaking away from the tyrannical leaders of their own countries, but are also wanting to break away from the yoke of control by the USA and Europe.

Remember that much of the world has been largely controlled by the the USA and western world domination for a long time.  There is a Military/Economic Empire structure that has been controlling the welfare of much of the world.  That structure is now breaking down. The economy is unravelling and there will be more and more revolutionary movements to overthrow the domination of the world by USA and western powers.  Most of that revolution will come from arab and muslim countries.

Some USA leaders are preaching that the USA must dismantle their military bases and domination all over the world. Their voices if listened to will help our country to avoid the worst of what may happen to us.  We need to leave these peoples’ lands, and save billions of dollars in military spending that could go to our people here in America to help our economy.

I fear that we will not make this transition into a New Aquarian Age of equality and Diversity in Unity gracefully. This transition will not be graceful if we stay determined to dominate the world as a superpower.

I had hoped that Barack Obama would be a bigger than life world figure who would help us to transform our country and world in a way where it could avoid the pain and suffering that come with stubborn desires to keep control and perpetuate a world and paradigm that are ready to die.  He has instead so far been nothing more than a pawn and figurehead for the Empire.

If there is no great breakthrough soon, there will be a war breaking out in the Middle East that will be huge.  It will mostly be centered around Israel and the plight of the Palestinians.

If you want to be fine during all this coming change,. work on remembering who you report to. Do you have greater allegiance to the people and paradigm that dominate this world or to the Universe? Hopefully it is to the Universe, which is run by Love, and Truth and Justice.  All major faiths are rooted in the belief that humans were created with the ability to choose.  We can each choose to live according to these “higher” principles or succomb to our more base natures.

The transition between ages requires us to create our Aquarian Age according to these higher principles, as they will be the foundation of that new world. You cannot control anyone else nor can you control what happens to the world. What you can control is how you react to what happens. You also are able to “Be the Change” you want to see in the world.

Many are now believing, as we enter the last month in the Mayan Calendar according to Johan Calleman, that tremendous earth shaking events will happen between now and October 28, 2011.  The only purely “astrological” wildcard in this scenario is the movement of comet Elenin through the heavens now.  I do not know what effect it will have. It has apparently diminished in strength however.   I personally have no experience with an ending of a Mayan Calendar as as comet goes by, so willl be witnessing with you as this month goes by.  My discipline is astrology.

Important movements in the heavens will not be occurring until the next eclipse season, which begins in November. This is when I know big shifts are coming.

See you next week,

Autumn Equinox 2011 and Astrology Forecast for September 18-24

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on September 17, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

Pluto is now back in direct motion, after having changed directions from retrograde last Friday.  But it will be over a week before it gets back to its normal direct speed.

Pluto is one of three truly transformational planets, Uranus and Neptune being the other two. As they move through the heavens they bring the events and consciousness stirrings that assist our evolution into an Aquarian Age.

Pluto mythologically is the God of Hades, of the underworld.   It is intense and powerful, and brings to the surface of consciousness our shadows and suppressed memories.   As we face these demons, we are more able to release old hurts and resentments, so we can heal our wounds and traumas.   As we face our darkness, we sometimes get pulled down into the pit of despair.  From that black hole in our psyche, we release the suffering and become renewed to feel alive again, rising like the Phoenix toward a transformed consciousness and life.

While Pluto was retrograde, from April 9 2011 to September 16 2011, our transformational journey had been largely inward, with intense and often painful inner emotions.  Now that it has gone back direct again, the transformation becomes more outward, leading us to act with change more out in the world.   We will be more motivated now to passionately embrace our lives and the changes that will improve our lives.

In the greater world, outer events will get more powerful now, events that will be more destructive of the old world and its now dysfunctional paradigm for living.  These events will bring some to believe more strongly than ever that we are separate from one another, cannot trust one another, and must fight more than ever to take of only our selves, our own families and nation.

Others will know it is time to change our ways, to come together as one big family all over the world, to create a better world.  These people know that true evolution is about attaining a unity consciousness, not a competive dog eat dog survivalist mentality.

Evolution is adapting to one’s environment in a way that brings greater survival of life.  Our current paradigm for living on Earth separates us from one another with lack of trust that has created nuclear bombs and other weapons of mass destruction.    Those weapons are symbolic of the destructive path our old paradigm has brought us to.    The disparity between rich and poor in our world is another symbol of the old paradigm of separation between peoples.

Diversity and individuality brought together in unified community is the way to survival now. It is Aquarius, and it is where those who want our human family to evolve are going to in flocks now.

You can only get there if you leave the fear and guilt and judgmental based paradigm of the old age.    That paradigm teaches us that all is random and chance and disconnected and separate.    It may talk of love, but it does not show us love.   It may talk of truth and fairness but does not show us truth or fairness.  The Universe I know is meaningful and has love and truth as its Pillars of Strength that we can all rely on.

But you cannot know these Pillars of Truth and Love if you have traded your heart and soul for the fears, rules and commandments of the old world.

The world events that are coming  our way will challenge us greatly.  The economy will face more grave struggles.   War is coming to Israel and the Middle East, which will involve the USA.  Natural Disasters will continue to shake our Earthly lives.

And the portal to an Aquarian Age and its unifying consciousness will at the same time get larger and larger, shining more light and love than ever for those who are so attuned.

This week is the annual turning of the seasonal wheel to Autumn.   The Autumn Equinox is this Friday September 23 at 5:05 AM EDT.

The autumn equinox is analogous to a setting sun.   Daytime light and heat are setting for the year, bringing in the beginning of cooler and darker days.   Light and night are equal at the Autumn Equinox, with dark and yin energies on the rise. It is Libra time of year, when balance is here for us to enjoy.

The scales seek to be even, to find fairness, co-operation and justice. There is beauty all around with the changing of leaves to the many colors of early autumn.

This Libra time of year is when the self and its demands are beginning to be relinguished in favor of relationship, of social awareness, of civility.   We take the focus off of “self” and bring it more to “Us.”

The Mayan Calendar according to Calleman is, on September 23, beginning the 6th night before the 7th and last day leading up to October 28, which is considered the end of the  Old World and the beginning of a New World.   According to this theory there will be enormous world transformation and opening to Unity Consciousness during this time.

See you next week,

Leo

Power of Pluto and Astrology Forecast for September 11-17

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The planetary highlights this coming week are a Full Moon in Pisces on Monday the 12th and Pluto changing directions from retrograde to direct on Friday the 16th.

The Full Moon on Monday is at 5:27 AM EDT.   This Pisces Full Moon is usually a very gentle Full Moon, and with all the recent volatility, gentle is appreciated.

It is a good time now as we approach and move through this Full Moon, to surrender and allow “nature” to take its course.  It is a good time at this watery Pisces Full Moon to go with the flow more and trust life.

I understand how difficult it is when one is in crisis, or facing challenge, or engulfed in intense inner emotions, to not stress out and try so hard.

But timing is also important, and we can’t really “push the river” to move any faster than it moves naturally.  Sometimes we need to just trust that the answers will unfold in their proper time, that we will given the signs to act when it is the right time.

And most importantly, our health and well-being are dependent on our not allowing too much stress to run our lives.  And if we are always fretting or worrying or pushing and controlling, we are over stressing our minds and bodies.

Of course a Full Moon is always when the Sun is exactly opposite the Moon.   And opposite this Pisces Moon is the Sun in Virgo.  Though flowing Pisces and perfectionistic Virgo are very different energetically, what they have in common is their desire to serve.  They both want to surrender their egos, and serve something greater.  So this Full Moon is a good time to get in touch with what you want to be humbly of service to.

Virgo and Pisces also both have healing qualities: Virgo fixes and heals in the mechanical or body or physical part of life, while Pisces heals the emotions, soul and psyche.  So this Full Moon is also a good time to get in touch with what in your life needs fixing or healing..

Competing for energetic influence with the gentle Pisces Full moon this week is the intense and potentially explosive Pluto. It is slowing down this week and then changing from retrograde to direct on Friday. Whenever a planet slows down to stationary position and changes direction, its influence is greatly exaggerated.  Pluto is deeply transformational, and as the “ruling” planet of Scorpio is very powerful.  As it changes directions this week, we can expect there to be greater intensity and stronger world events.   Pluto’s influence can also bring to the surface what had been previously kepy secret.

We can see the combination of the Pisces Full Moon and the turning of Pluto in our American honoring of the tragedy of 9-11, as we acknowledge the 10 year marking point now on September 11, 2011.  The Pisces Full Moon is represented in the mourning and healing of our nation.  Pluto is represented in our fears of someone repeating the horror and explosiveness of that event as we gather that day to remember.   The Pluto change this week happens while it is in Capricorn.

Pluto left Sagittarius to enter Capricorn in 2008/09.  It will stay in Capricorn until 2024, for 15 years.

It is meaningful that we are changing ages during this time of Pluto in Capricorn.  Capricorn is about the structures and institutions that run a society.   Pluto is deeply transformational, and it ruthlessly destroys the old that has lost its soul, its principles, its passion.  From the ashes of destruction, like the phoenix, new life is born and rises.  During the time of Pluto in Capricorn, we are witnessing the destruction of the old structures in our world and culture.

The old economy is being destroyed for something more aligned with the Aquarian Age we are moving into.  The Arab Spring this year has been destroying old governments and ruling classes who have outlived their time.  Natural disasters are shifting our Earth placements.  Much more revolution and transformation is coming our way between now and 2024 when Pluto leaves Capricorn for Aquarius- the sign of our new Age.

And as I have written before, I believe the mark of the Aquarian Age beginning is in December of 2010, when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.

So even though many are seeeing 2011 or 2012 as the entrance into a New World and Age, I do not see it that way astrologically.

I do believe however that there is  much truth to these two years being dramatically transformational. I believe that there is much change coming before October 28, 2011, as Carl Calleman believes this is the date of changing worlds according to the Mayan Calendar.  The comet Elenin, even in its current degraded state,  is meaningful as it happens close to that October 28 date. It also signifies great change for the end of this year.  And I do believe, as do many  Mayan scholars, that December 2012 is an important marking point of radical change on Planet Earth.

But great transformational change will continue beyond these dates, especially as Uranus squares Pluto from now through 2016.

And then in the 2020 decade we will have firmly landed in an Aquarian Age.

By that time the world we inhabit now will be ancient history, so vastly different on all levels.

In future writings of Perspectives from the Sky we will envision what this world will look like and what the process will be like to get there.

This week we experience the gentle flow of a Pisces Full Moon mixed with the intensity of Pluto.  Pay close attention to what is happening in Israel and the Middle East.  This will be a most volatile region this month and for the next several months, as the Palestinians fight for statehood and the Arab Spring revolutions continue to shift allegiances in the region.  The Middle East will get increasingly more explosive now, and will be a big igniter of worldwide transformation.  Also be alert for more grave troubles with the world economy and more natural disasters as we finish off 2011.

Climate change and the changing of Ages work together.  Ages changes, and of course the Earth and its environment are a part of that change.  All the floods and earthquakes and heat waves we have recently experienced are part of what is called Climate Change.  And Climate Change is  part of the changing ages from a Pisces Age to an Aquarian Age.

See you next week.

Time to Choose and Astrology Forecast for September 4-10

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on September 3, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We move into the last few weeks of summer now in the northern hemisphere.    We come closer to the “sunset” time of year, the Autumn Equinox.  It is Virgo time of year now, as always, during the last month of summer. Virgo is a mutable Earth sign. It is mutable as the changing transitional month from summer to autumn. Its earthy quality can be witnessed in the harvest at this time of year.  We are slowly cooling down from our fiery days of playing in summer, and beginning to get  back to school and business.

In our skies this week there is relative calmness, not too many big and important planetary movements.   But there is a comet named Elenin moving to its closest angle to the Sun on September 10.  We wonder what meaning this movement has on our human condition. We look for worldly events to help us understand Elenin’s message to us.

There is so much on this Comet on the internet.  And there are two totally different sets of opinion about it. One is all doom and gloom and apocalyptic. The other talks only about a material object moving through the sky, and it poo-poos  any talk about the comet’s movement being meaningful in any way.

This wide discrepancy between viewpoints shows us the state of our conventional world.

Modern  conventional world science is all too often not about finding truth from deeper places, but about perpetuating its paradigm.  This kind of “science” told us the world was flat many centuries ago.

And the apocalyptic soothsayers show us how misguided much of the spiritual/metaphysical/new age world can be.

Many years ago astronomers and astrologers were the same people.  Galileo and Kepler are two such people.  Back then there was a relationship between the mystical and the scientific.     Scientists knew the “dots of the Universe” were all connected, that meaning could be found in the heavens, that there was truth in the axiom “as above so below”.    Metaphysical people cared about truth, not just what makes you feel good or what scares you. They were concerned about souls and assisting our human condition on its evolutionary jouney.

Astrology and astronomy being separated is symbolic of the split between our hearts and minds.  This split is not natural.

Our hearts need our minds as valued advisers who look for fact, logic and “reality”.

Our minds need our hearts as valued partners to keep us seeing and feeling more deeply into the soul and the mysteries of life.

The old world we are leaving shows us the splits between heart and mind, between male and female, between yin and yang, light and dark.  The new world we are entering is about healing the separations, and transforming those old separations into a merging wholeness of unity.

So what is the meaning of the report this week that Comet Elenin may be splitting in two?   Does it show us that Elenin is not going to be that meaningful after all? Or does it show us this split that exists in our old world, and how that split will greatly affect events here on Earth now?

Neither the naysayers who claim there is no meaning to Elenin, nor the “soothsayers” who say it is the end of the world are correct. Those disparate views are reflective of the split between heart and mind.  There is meaning to the movement of Elenin, but we must find a “real” meaning to it.

It is most interesting that its movement is coinciding with the end of the Mayan Calendar according the Carl Johan Calleman. He has been saying for many years now that the calendar ends on October 28, 2011.   Elenin, if it stays intact, will be at its closest movement to Earth on October 16.

The end of the Mayan Calendar is not the end of the world. It is a transition time between ages, an old world dying and a new world being born.

One thing that has been getting more and more obvious to me is that each person must now choose what world they belong to. I see more and more people in crisis all the time. It is a crisis between worlds.

We have been so conditioned to fit into the old world,as we have been taught our well-being is dependent on that.  We have been given a set of rules to follow to keep us attached to that old world. If we break the rules we are in big trouble, like poverty or jail or hell or maybe just people won’t like us.

If we find a way to fit in we will be happy and successful we are told.

But more and more people are not happy with being in that paradigm anymore. They have no sense of meaning or purpose in it.  They cannot express their true and authentic self.  And now they may not have jobs or be able to pay the bills either.

And they know life in that old world is not kind to the Earth. They know there are needless and cruel wars being perpetrated for no real reason. They know our political system is totally dysfunctional and out of touch with the needs of the people. They see a world out of balance and disconnected from the natural.

But they fear truly living their lives authentically and meaningfully.

Now as we move more intensely between ages and worlds, there are more challenging events in our greater world and in our personal lives.

We must choose now what world we want to live in, what kind of person we want to be.  Do not wait for how it all turns out. Do not sit in fear for what may or may not happen.

Choose:  Do you live in a Universe of connections and meaning, of love and truth?  Or not?  Do you want to live your life in the Aquarian Age of equality, of Diversity in Unity?  Or not?    Do you want to contribute to our new world, which honors all peoples and wants to heal our human family and Earth?  Or not?

It is time to make the changes if you want to be in this new world, as it is developing right now.  If you have been putting off getting your self and life healthy and whole, time is slipping away.  If you have been putting off changing your beliefs and attitudes, now is the time. If you have been putting off taking that meditation or yoga classs, take it now.

The comet is splitting and the glue that holds the old and new world together is splitting.  Release the old, let it die.  Embrace the new and let your self truly live.  The Ages are changing and you can be the change you want to see.

See you next week,

Leo
