Into the Mystic and Astrology Forecast for January 29- February 7

We moved into a new zone last week, after the New Moon in Aquarius and Mars going retrograde.  Our lives are on pause/rewind now while Mars is retrograde, with issues being processed on levels sometimes deeper than we know.   It sometimes may feel like you are going backwards, as if gains you have made are being lost.  You are not going backward, this back and forth movement is part of the process. But if you try to move forcefully forward while Mars is retrograde, you will be stopped as it is not time yet.  You need more time to wait and see before you are ready.

Of course life goes on as normal in many ways too, but in other ways so much is shifting and changing.  The status quo is ripping apart. It is being held together on life support systems.

The changing of ages has us in a transition, but the semblance of security that the old world has given us is breaking apart.  That old world can no longer hold us, as it has little love and truth and soul in it anymore.  It is an empty structure, devoid of life substance.  It seeks to perpetuate its existence with smoke and mirrors and artificial prop ups.

Its world is filled with fast food takeouts and greasy burgers, nasty comments and only materialistic pursuits.  If you try to hold on you will go down with the ship.

So your system is now trying to help you to shed its toxins. Your body, soul and mind are releasing those toxins.   I know the zone you are in now may not feel very stable or secure sometimes, may not feel safe.  So you must reach deep for faith in life, faith in the Universe (God/Goddess), faith in your deeper soul.   Their process is often rather mysterious, not as left brain logical as that old world we are leaving behind.

Yes we must trust in the process now, have faith everything is moving just as should.  On the surface perhaps things sometimes look rather bleak, but looks can be deceiving.  When events seem to show us everything is falling apart, on a deeper level it is all coming together.

Look at what is falling apart in your life as your old world.  It needs to fall apart in order to make room for a new and healthier authentic you.  Your deeper soul is fighting for a sane, authentic, and healthy life, one aligned with the Universe and its progress into an Aquarian Age.

That Aquarian Age consciousness is bubbling deep inside, waiting to more fully enter our individual lives and world.  As old ways die, sometimes very painfully, we make room for new birth.

In the greater world, those old ways are dying hard. That perfect storm of economic and military chaos is slowly forming.  That old economy and military power has provided a sense of security here in the USA and western world.   Though it has often used greed and power abuse to gain and maintain its strength, it nevertheless has given its citizens a paradigm to live by that feels safe and secure.

But now we are on the verge of upheaval.

I alerted everyone to look for what would be happening with Iran as Mars goes retrograde, Mars being the god of war.  That day the European Union decided to put sanctions on Iranian oil and banks,not  starting until July, in order to give the European economies time to adjust to not having Iranian oil. The USA has already put similar sanctions on Iran.    China, India, Russia and others refuse to do the same, and are separating themselves from western countries.

In return Iran has threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, where most of the world’s oil travels through. Iran this week has also threatened to stop oil shipments to Europe soon, before Europe plans to stop them in July. This would make the European people suffer high costs of oil.  War drums are beating over oil again.

That perfect storm we wrote about is beginning to form. While Mars stays retrograde, more will develop around Iran.  Israel this week also contributed to the Mars retrograde dialogue by stating that Iran is about to move to a place where they cannot be stopped from developing nuclear weapons. What they mean by this is that they (Israel) will soon need to stop the Iranian threat by attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Mars goes back direct on April 14.  Movement forward will begin then. Until then realize that much will be “up in the air“. After that is a new and powerful eclipse season while Venus, planet of love and relationship, will then go retrograde also.  Matters of the heart will be on pause/rewind, processing and getting ready for new ways to relate.

This week the Moon is waxing toward the climax of a Full Moon in Leo next week on February 7.   This week also brings Neptune moving into Pisces on Friday February 3, where it will stay until 2025.

Neptune loves to be in Pisces, where it is at home. Neptune is the God of the Sea and Pisces is the ocean.    The movement is toward the mystical depths of soul, where poetry, metaphor, symbols and synchronicity are the language.    Logic can only be used as a tool to assist the liquid soul formlessness of Neptune in Pisces.

This is such  strong movement for deeper realities, the deep realities that give meaning to our material lives.  This is process, not goal orientation, and if you want to be in tune with this important shift in our collective consciousness, listen to your inner voice inside.  If you have been wanting to practice new forms of meditation, it is a good time now to begin.

If you want to dive deep into the mysteries lying beneath our waking state, go for it.   The spiritual world wants to have more of an influence on our lives now, and its values of unity, empathy, and compassion are ready to join our voyage into the Aquarian Age.   Peace is what we are moving toward as a human family, even as war brews on the surface of our reality.   Remember that as all seems to falling apart, on deeper levels it is all coming together.

See you next week,

Leo

New Moon in Aquarius, Mars Retrograde and Astrology Forecast for January 22-28

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on January 21, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The tides shift this Monday January 23, as there is a New Moon in Aquarius and Mars goes Retrograde. Additionally many will be celebrating that day the Chinese New Year of the Dragon.

This will feel like a turning point, one where you will sense on the one hand new beginnings, and on the other hand a pause in time.

The New Moon in Aquarius is a welcome new moon for many as it breaks us out of the flat seriousness of CapricornCapricorn is ruled by Saturn and much of January is Capricorn time.  During that time we get more in touch with what we need to do, what we are obligated to do, and what we need to discipline ourselves to do. Capricorn also tends to push us into acceptance of what must be.

On Friday January 20 the Sun moved into Aquarius, and on Monday when the Moon joins the Sun there in Aquarius there is the New Moon in Aquarius. It is at 2:39 AM on the east coast of the USAAquarius is ruled by Uranus, and Uranus is about breaking out of boxes and doing things differently.

So if you felt confined or restricted during Capricorn time of year, you will appreciate the relative freedom that Aquarius brings. Capricorn is not bad, as every sign has its purpose.  Many people like Capricorn because it helps them to feel grounded and anchored and getting down to business.

But many others feel their creativity and freedom suffer at that time. Now at Aquarius time of year you can open up more, especially your free mind. Aquarius facillitates an open and inventive mind, social networking, and socially conscious causes.   Aquarius also shows us the way to the value of the true individual and individual freedom and liberty.

Aquarius believes in equality and seeks to limit the importance of egos and privilege and dominance.   It believes in the strength of individuality and individual responsibility for the well being of the community and world.

Aquarius is very mental and detached, however, and so can sometimes be without much feeling.  It does of course have strong mental principles it seeks to live by, but sometimes lacks the emotional expression.   Aquarius also can sometimes, as a fixed sign, be rather rigid about its beliefs.

So this week begins to bring us out of the doldrums and wake us up to get going.  But Monday also brings us Mars Retrograde.

Mars is a planet of will and desire, of forcefulness and action. When it goes retrograde, we pause to decide what we truly want or desire.  We may also pause to reflect on what we are doing and where we are going.  Have we been truly picking what we really want in life?  Have we been moving in the right direction?  Are we doing what we really want and what is truly aligned for us, or are we doing what we should do or what we have been programmed to do?

While Mars is retrograde, from January 23 to Friday April 13, we may need to reevaluate what we have chosen for our lives.   Others may be reflecting on power and competition issues, or on anger issues, all issues associated with Mars.

Perhaps you have anger issues or issues about getting your way all the time. Or conversely perhaps you have drawn to yourself people who seek to dominate or have bad tempers or are rather selfish.

During the retrograde time period events may motivate you to look more deeply at these issues and make changes.    Mars Retrograde may be a good time to either share your power, or to learn to empower your self more.

Those on a spiritual path often believe that for the seek of peace one must repress one’s personal needs or suppress one’s personal power.

In reality, it is impossible for you to truly bring your best wishes for the world without your power. And if you want to be empowered you need to be in touch with your personal needs.

Nature gave you personal needs for a reason. To satisfy those needs is essential to surviving and thriving.  If you disempower your self you lose your ability to self actualize and contribute to your world.  Unselfishness and self sacrifice taken to a self defeating place is UNNATURAL.

Use this Mars retrograde time to empower your self. I do not mean to use or dominate others, but to get in touch with your natural wants and desires and your ability to use your will to manifest.

Of course it is essential to use your will in alignment with the Universe. If you are truly selfish or greedy or power hungry, you are out of alignment. But if you feel you want to live comfortably and happy in this world, you will need to fulfill your needs.

So Mars goes back direct on April 13 and returns to where it began at 23 degrees of Virgo on June 19.  After April 13 you can move more fully forward, and after June 19 you will have come full circle with whatever issues came up for you at the Mars Retrograde.

Since Mars in is Virgo for the whole retrograde period, it will also be a time to get in touch with bringing more order to your life, fixing and healing what needs to fixed and healed. Also, with Mars being in Virgo be careful not to get too obsessed or worried about any of the issues that come up for you during Mars Retrograde.

In the greater world the republicans are in the process of selecting who will be their nominee for President to run against President Obama.  Also do not be too surprised to see a viable third party candidate running for President. Ron Paul is a likely third party candidate, and would throw the election up for grabs.

As I wrote about in our last forecast, the coming eclipse season could bring the Perfect Storm of explosive events in the world.  Watch the Mars Retrograde movement early this coming week for potential clues of what may be coming soon.

See you next week,

Leo

The Perfect Storm and Astrology Forecast for January 15-21

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Winter has finally hit, with a snow storm a couple days ago and a deep freeze on the way.  We are in the deep of Winter.

The Moon is waning now and moving down into its last Quarter phase, getting us prepared for a New Moon in Aquarius on January 23.

That will be a turning point day as Mars also goes Retrograde that day and the Chinese New Year of the Dragon begins.

But this week is low energy, winding down, making completions, cleaning up, preparing.    After the 23rd you can rev up your life engines again.

In the greater world a perfect storm is in the early stages of formation.  This perfect storm is the explosion that will shake up the Old World paradigm and reality.

Those of us on a spiritual soul journey into a new paradigm, a New Earth, an Aquarian Age, have been getting rewired into a new consciousness aligned with this World.

We have been facing spiritual crises that are meant to help us release the programming of the society of that Old World paradigm.   We have faced deep fears, let go of old beliefs and attitudes, endured physical health challenges, as we are being prepared for the storm ahead.

Each of us must be mentally and spiritually ready for the challenges ahead. The Old World is about to bring us events that will tend to evoke great fear.

The deep personal challenges we have each faced let us know that transformation into Unity consciousness is not an easy process. There are shadows and demons of separation consciousness to be faced and released on the path into Aquarian Age consciousness.

Many people are going to freak out because of the storms that are coming. The messages from the old world will be of fear, and hatred of those who are different.   They will tend to motivate you into a survival of the fittest mentality.   They will stoke you into nationalism and patriotism that will separate you from your fellow Earth citizen.   Enemies will be created by media and government, lies will be told to get you to choose sides.

But you have been cleansing, healing, and transforming your consciousness and life over the years. You know we are all One, that we have been getting prepared to create a New Earth, an Aquarian Age.

There is a war coming that is part of this perfect storm.  The Powers of the Old World are getting ready for a showdown with Iran.  War preparations are already beginning.  A False Flag incident is possible soon, one that is staged to look like a Pearl Harbor. Or perhaps more simply Israel will attack Iran.

This showdown with Iran has the potential to begin the dominoes falling into a war that will encompass much of the world.

The European economic crisis, which will become an American economic crisis, will form at a similar time period to the war cries with Iran, to help form this perfect storm.

Some people believe we can stop this all from happening with our prayers and positive visualizations. Perhaps Divine Intervention can be evoked to help us move into an Aquarian Age in a more graceful manner.

But it is also quite possible, as many prophecies have foretold, that these events are meant to be in order to bring about the transformation into a New World and New Earth.

But keep in mind that we are all on this Earth at just the right time. We are meant to be here now. We have incarnated at this time to be of assistance to our world in crisis.   The inner work and healing we have gone through over the years is in preparation for this crisis.

Many of you reading this will be leading the way into new consciousness and helping to create this New World.

The timing of this is difficult to ascertain.  The eclipse season this Spring 2012 is a likely time for the storm, but I believe the early dark winds of this storm will blow in sooner than that.  Watch for signs of the brewing storm near the coming New Moon in Aquarius as Mars goes Retrograde on January 23.  During the Mars Retrograde period there will likely be second thoughts on engaging in war, even as preparations are being made. Keep in mind that Mars is the archetypal god of war, and while it is retrograde we reflect on Mars issues.

Mars will go back direct on April 14.  Mercury will also be retrograde from March 12- April 4, so much contemplation and reflection will be in order then. Then sometime afterwards it is time to act and move forward.  Perhaps minds will be changed.

In May and June there are two powerful Eclipses. In June is the first pass of the revolutionary and evolutionary Uranus square Pluto.  This is the time period most likely when the Perfect Storm occurs, if it indeed will happen. The timing is not cut in stone.   Events will happen surrounding the May/June planetary intensities, but exact dates are almost impossible to ascertain.

There is nothing to worry and fret about, as all will unfold just as it meant to unfold.  You have been preparing, whether you are conscious of that fact or not. The shifts you have been experiencing are part of the process to put you just where you need to be.

We all know that life is not just about raising families, buying a home, making money, and consuming and buying. Life is a meaningful and sacred soul journey.  We are here on Earth as spiritual beings, reincarnating in order to return to our soul home of Unity consciousness.

No, all humans will not be entering Aquarian Age consciousness during this time of intense transition, but enough will to be able to create our new world.

This week, January 15-21, there is a waning last quarter Moon beginning early Monday morning. Then on Thursday there is a serious feeling in the air as the Sun squares Saturn. And on Friday the Sun moves into Aquarius, three days before the Moon joins the Sun in Aquarius to form a New Moon in Aquarius on January 23.

Aquarius time of year is a time for concentration on social networking, group activity, and social consciousness. It is also a time to break out of limiting boxes of consciousness, and to see things in inventive and creative ways. Aquarius tends toward distinct individuality, even if others may see it as weird and strange.  Aquarius is about rebellion against how one is supposed to be, and it is anti ego.  Aquarius hates tyranny and appreciates equality and freedom.  Aquarius walks the thin line between genius and crazy and loves to travel the network of mind and intellect.

See you next week,

Leo

The Soul of Winter and Astrology Forecast for January 8-14

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on January 7, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are firmly in winter now, though you would hardly know it up here in the northern regions of the USA.    It has been mostly mid autumn weather, with only a couple of snow dustings so far, no extreme cold or big snows.

It has felt like winter, however, inside the soul.   It has been a slow process of climbing out from the dark realms of the last eclipse season.  That eclipse season kind of felt like a rewiring of the body and spirit, perhaps getting ready for the immense changes of 2012.

We are each transforming our consciousness and lives to be alignment with the waves of evolutionary movement into an Aquarian Age.  Darker forces inside ourselves or in the world and Universe try to bring us backwards into fear and meaninglessness.

So it is important to keep the focus on the frequency of reality that shows us we are in the embrace of a a loving Universe, one that supports our meaningful and sacred soul journey.   This is an important time in the ourstory of humanity.

We are in transition between ages, with an old age trying to pull us back into a paradigm that believes in separation and teaches us that the dots of life and the Universe do not connect with one another.

This new paradigm shows us unmistakedly that there is Unity, not a unity of all in the same uniform; but a Diversity in Unity.

We each have been created in a distinct individualized unique manner.   The Unity of an Aquarian Age is not one that is about us all being the same.  It is about authentic individualized entities respecting their own and others’ differences, yet knowing we are all connected in larger community. This is Aquarius.

So do not be upset with your self when you get temporarily taken back to old fears, to old hurts and wounds that make you feel life, people, God, and the Universe cannot be trusted.    It is part of the growth process evolutionarily.

We sometimes need to return to those dark places inside so we can be more humbled, embrace our vulnerable human self, and reconnect with our compassion for those who suffer and feel alone and alienated.

2012 will be a roller coaster ride of transformation, helping us to open our hearts and minds to the possibilities.    It will a time when reality shifts in big ways, and when we see with new eyes.  It is important this year to keep an open mind about what is real and what is not.  We have been programmed by society and family to see reality in certain ways.   At one time society believed the world was flat, and those who believed differently were not accepted.

The electronic/computer age was science fiction not too long ago.   And perhaps before too long we will have new information about the origins of humanity, about our connections to star systems and alien life.

True transformation is breaking out of what you have programmed to believe, that which holds you back from Truth.  It is necessary to find your free mind, heart and soul in order to break the chains of the past that hold you.

As you find that liberation, you find your Authentic Self and your Soul Path, and you know your journey is sacred and meaningful. You are meant to be a part of the evolutionary wave into an Aquarian Age.   Your example will light the way for others to follow.

So when the doubts bring you into darker places in your heart, it is important to nurture your body and soul.  You nurture your body and soul by feeding it what is healthy.  You talk to people who are also on a soul’s journey, not to people who do not believe.  You read books or listen to cds that keep you on the path. You receive counseling or healings from people who know the dots of the Universe are connected in meaningful ways. You stay away, as much as possible from people, even and especially sometimes family, who remind and rewind you to the person you used to be.   They will only know you in the old role.

You will not be able to convince them of a reality they do not believe exists.  Of course you still love them, but your conversations and frequency of interaction may need to change.

This Week there is a Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer.    It is overnight Sunday into Monday, at 2:31 AM January 9th here on the east coast USA.

The Sun is in Capricorn and represents our orientation to the outer world, our wordly duties, our professional lives, our organization and discipline, our accomplishments and what we have learned on our worldly journey.

The Moon in Cancer represents our personal life, our inner orientation and values, our feelings and soul.  It is about nurturance and protection and safety from the world.

So now at this Full Moon, it is time to find right relationship between your innner and outer realities, between your personal and professional life.   Have you been too focussed on doing what you need to do and get done and ignoring your inner world and personal feelings? Or have you been overprotective and procrastinating about what you need to accomplish or face up to?

Are you too concerned with family and children and ignoring your worldly ambitions, or have you been working too much and ignoring your family and children?

It is time to do your best to find the balance.

The next big shift will be after January 23, as on that day there is New Moon in Aquarius and the Chinese New Year of the Dragon. Also that day Mars, our planet of action, will, and desire goes Retrograde. It will get us to reflect on those issues in our life, and ponder if we are on the right track.

We will discuss that more in the next couple of weeks.

See you next week,

Leo
