Prepping and Processing and Astrology Forecast June 30- July 7

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on June 29, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are finishing up the lunar cycle begun on June 8 with a New Moon in Gemini.   Late Saturday June 29 the last quarter of the lunar cycle begins, with a Moon in Aries. That means that this coming week, until the New Moon in Cancer on July 8, we are winding down and settling in.

Mercury is Retrograde, and will stay there until July 20, so it is not a great time to start any big ventures, make any final decisions, or sign any important contracts. That is because our minds are not thinking as they usually do, even if that is not entirely evident.  Our perceptions are shifting, our outlook less clear.  This does not mean you need to go in a cave and ride out the Mercury Retrograde period.   You can be alive and functioning, doing what you do, just not a great time to come to important conclusions.

It is a better time to process our thoughts and feelings, to try on for size, so to speak, different scenarios and possibilities.   Decisions that do not have long term implications are also fine to make during Mercury Retrograde.

I have seen too many instances, however, of some major event or contract or decision made during Mercury Retrograde that sours later, does not last, or stay healthy and sound.

This does not mean to be superstitious about Mercury Retrograde.  Sometimes life takes us to a place during Mercury Retrograde where we have no  choice but to do something important.   If there is no apparent choice but to do something major during Mercury Retrograde, then it is meant to be and you need to surrender to that fact.

There are children born during Mercury Retrograde, for instance, who turn out just as fine as people who were born with Mercury Direct.

But be cautious if you seemingly are forced to make some big decision. Realize your logical mind cannot be as trusted as usual, so go inward with more reflection, and trust your intuition and heart more.

With a last quarter Moon this week in addition to Mercury Retrograde, this is no time to expand or to leap into anything.   Saturn is also slowing down this week before it goes Direct on July 8, the same day as the New Moon in Cancer.

So Saturn’s contracting and limiting energies are strong now also, again showing us to get more grounded and real, facing what we need to face, not running away or becoming distracted.

It will be especially good this week to be present and aware, in control and cautious.

Spring Eclipse Season has passed, but its ramifications are still showing.   Whatever shook up, broke down, or broke through over the last 3 months or so, is now ready to be made more real.

At that New Moon and Saturn Direct next week, it will be time to begin reaping rewards or facing consequences, as Saturn is also karma.

Saturn is also the hand of time, Father Time, so when it goes direct the “clock starts ticking again” for events and issues that were put on hold or were being previously resolved first.

This does not mean all has to totally firm in place before Saturn goes Direct, because remember that Mercury is still Retrograde.   So even though the clock begins to tick, there may still be details to work out, emotions to process, clarity to be found, and final decisions still waiting.

Saturn Direct can also be like a sense of fate, or a feeling like something that is meant to be is happening or is immanent.

That means that  there is also a good chance that a serious and meaningful event may occur over the next several days, surrounding Saturn going Direct. 

Yet energies for the most part this week will be more Yin in nature, more down and inward. the only exception to this is the fact that the Sun in Cancer will be touching off the Uranus/Pluto square as it opposes Pluto on Monday and squares Uranus on Thursday.

So there is a possibility of world or personal surprises that could shake things up, taking us off balance in some way.  Keep in mind that all other planetary issues are about being inward and winding down, so do not leap into anything, do anything impulsive, or radically change directions or opinions.

There is a big turning point coming at or around the New Moon in Cancer and Saturn going Direct on July 8, but this should not require your taking any big actions yet.  It will be more like an arrow pointing in a direction, sometimes showing only inside your self as you know something has shifted.

It may take a few weeks or a few months before whatever is shifting totally manifests in your life for you.   So best again to be very present and aware over the next week or 10 days, in touch with perhaps subtle shifts of energy.

In the greater world you will see almost frantic attempts to “stop the ship from sinking”, so to speak.   There are many endings of old ways coming now, and many people in power will be fighting to keep the status quo.    Do not let your self get hooked into the dramas, into the hate and fear.

Keep your eye on the ball of a New Age in Aquarius, the liberation of people from shackles of their minds and hearts.  We are not owned by any countries or authorities or institutions or corporations.  Our soul belongs to us, we are responsible for it.   Our primary relationship is with our own soul self and the Universe it resides within. From that aligned place we find all other relationships and desires for contribution to our human community.

See you next week,

Leo

Turning on Your Inner Light and Astrology Forecast June 23-29

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on June 22, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Now as we are past the Spring Eclipse Season and into the Summer of 2013, we will be starting to slow down, tune in, and get more into reflective mode this coming week and beyond.

Sunday June 23 is Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn. It will appear as the largest Full Moon of the year, as it is closest to the Earth now.  The Sun went into Cancer on the Summer Solstice Thursday/Friday, and on Sunday the Moon catches up in opposition to the Sun, from Capricorn.    That makes a Full Moon at 7:32 AM EDT.

Cancer is the permissive understanding parent, unconditionally accepting, protective and safe.  Capricorn is the strict taskmaster parent, giving positive strokes after the job is done well, creating a structured and disciplined environment.

So at this Full Moon it it a good time to bring into balance these opposite ways of being.    Nurture your self and your loved ones, but create rules, boundaries and expectations for success too.   Cancer is open feelings and emotions, Capricorn puts limits and boundaries to these feelings.   So now there is a need to be more open with your feelings, but a need also to not drown in those feelings or to spray them all over others.

Cancer’s values are inner values like kindness, caring, and being in touch with other’s essence or soul and their needs.  It values family, personal and domestic concerns.  Capricorn’s values are more outer directed, toward accomplishment, organizing, building, and disciplining.

So there is a need now to balance one’s personal and domestic life with one’s career and outer obligations and responsibilities.

On Tuesday Jupiter moves from Gemini to Cancer.  Jupiter takes about a year to go through a sign.     So it will stay in Cancer till next summer.   Since there are 12 signs, it has been 12 years since Jupiter was last in Cancer.  So go back to July 2001 through July 2002 to remember the last pass of Jupiter in Cancer in your life.

What were the family issues then?    What emotional issues were important then?    Were there any extraordinary situations around taking care of the vulnerable?  What issues about women, your mother or mothering happened during that time?

This coming year women’s issues and issues around children, the aging, the disabled will be more in the spotlight.   How can you better work through family issues this coming year?  Can you find new ways to be more unconditionally loving of your self or others this coming year?   Can you be less driven and more nurturing of your self this coming year?   Can you find more value in inner principles than status and climbing ladders of success?

The world will be in more trouble this coming year, the economy likely getting much more stressed. So it is time to turn inward to appreciate a more simple life, friends and family, inner values of caring, integrity, dignity, empathy, compassion, honesty, and kindness.

Our trust in our politicians, government, and other institutions is on a down slide.  But it is time to get back to a more humanistic sense of community, a knowing we are all in this human experience together, which can be painful sometimes.

And also this week Mercury goes back Retrograde again, Wednesday June 26 at 9:08 AM EDT. It will stay there until July 20 at 2:22 PM.

So get ready to let go of your chattering mind, let go of too much reliance on logic and analyzing too much.   Our perceptions are ready to shift this week, and this shift is best handled by being more reflective, and more heart centered.  If you have been viewing some issues in your life in a certain way, be prepared to shift your thinking, to question what direction you were intending to go toward.   It is best, however, to not let this questioning time period push you into making decisions counter to what you had already decided.

Wait until Mercury goes back direct again before you make a final decision.  Do not jump off course just because things are beginning to look different. Mercury Retrograde may actually help us, before it is finished, to be even more sure of what we had chosen, after the questioning.

People or memories of people from your past may come back to you during Mercury Retrograde.  They are coming back so you can get back in touch with old values or to get a better perspective of relationships or issues in your life.

So be aware that energies will be shifting this week, but I do not believe they will get much more intense.  Many of the shifts will be more of perception, of attitude, of viewpoint.  Yes events may also bring shifts, and may bring emotional upset for some, but I do not expect overly intense energy this week after the Full Moon passes.

In the greater world we are witnessing a kind of 1984  Orwellian tone to life, more spying and government intrusion in our lives.  Corporate/Government/Police and Military are hovering.   More and peoples in countries all over the world are wanting to be liberated from this control.  Lately residents of Turkey and Brazil are protesting and rioting, joining their brothers and sisters from the Arab Spring and Europe, who have recently been awakening.

This is the energy of the Aquarian Age blossoming, bringing the power to the people, not governments and corporations or militaries. As more and more people awaken, however, controls will get stronger too.  In your own consciousness, be aware of the conflict between your need to free yourself from old ways of being, and your fear to change- which gets you to clinging more to old ways.

In 1781 when Uranus the “ruler” or Aquarius was discovered, revolutions in America and France were erupting and bringing more power to people, and away from the Kings and Queens.  This was when humanity was on the very first part of the cusp of the Age of Aquarius.

Now the governments and corporations are our new Kings and Queens, so to speak, attempting to control our lives, minds and hearts.  Yet we are closer than ever to the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.  In my estimation after December 2020, when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, we will more fully open the door to that new age.

For now we will more and more face the decay and downfall of the old paradigm, and at the same an awakening of new consciousness and awareness.  Old programming from the old age we need to release, old attitudes and beliefs. New ways of seeing, being and living are being shown to us to embrace.

This transition will accelerate and intensify, especially this autumn 2013 and next spring 2014.  There will be even greater conflict in the Middle East and most of the world will be involved. Old Walls will be broken down, and there will be a battle between chaos and order.

For now, however, go inside and develop your inner world, your attitudes and beliefs, your emotions and perceptions.   Look more deeply at how you treat your self and others, how you view the world you live in.  Your inner world and your intentions are the foundation for your outer world endeavors and ventures.

See you next week,

Leo

Another War and Astrology Forecast June 16-22

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are fully in the aftermath of the Eclipse Season,  viewing the results and repercussions of what was shaken up and shifted during that time period.

We wrote during that Eclipse Season that both transiting Jupiter and Mars would making conjunction with the USA natal Mars in Gemini from its birth date of July 4 1776.

We let you know that between May 18 and June 30 there would be issues ignited around USA  military adventures, conflicts, and wars. We also let you know that the Middle East was the likely place for these issues to play out.

So this last week, President Obama declared that the USA would sent military equipment and arms to the rebels in Syria, effectively bringing the USA into the war in Syria.   This will likely turn out to be the match that ignites the Middle East region into a more intense and broad based war.

How this decision came about is startling to me.  Bill Clinton, while speaking at a meeting about Syria with John McCain, said that President Obama was being a  “wuss” if he did not get more involved in the Syrian War.  “Wuss ” was the exact word he used.

Less than 24 hours later Obama, who had been for a long time holding off on getting involved in Syria, all of a sudden announced he would send in military aid to the rebels in Syria because of use of chemical weapons in Syria.

So soon after being called a “wuss” he decided to do the macho thing and get involved in war, another unneeded war for America.

Our leaders in America are 18 year old boys!  I dare you to go to war?  You are not much of a man unless you get in this war? My God how can this be true?  How can our country be run by boys who call each other wuss?

I grew up in a very macho culture in Cicero Illinois, where Al Capone built his mafia empire. I am Italian American and believe me that was a very macho culture I grew up in.    As a young man I had to be tough to survive.  But then I grew up, left the hood, and became a man.

Many boys are brought up to do anything to not be considered unmanly.   But you grow out of it.   You grow up and realize how destructive those attitudes and behaviors are, and you want to help create a better world than that.  You still will fight for what you believe in, but you will not fight because you do want to be a wimp or wuss.  What kind of cause is that to fight for? At what age do stop caring who blinks first or how big your dick is?

So here we have the leader of the free world, as they say, and the ex leader of that world, acting like teenage boys and putting so many lives in danger by going into a needless war.

That war is no business of the USA. No matter what you are being programmed to believe, the war in Syria is a civil war, no bad guys and good guys, but a civil war.

Major countries like the USA and Russia, Iran and Saudi Arabia, are swarming around Syria like vultures to take what they can get.  It is about power and control of the Middle East region.

The American people in polls are overwhelmingly against Americans getting involved in this war. Bill Clinton said it did not matter what the polls said, that Obama must lead the people into this war showing them caution and good reasons to get involved and they will follow.

So what he means is to lead the sheep into war, even if they do not want to go.   We must not let them do this again. Last time in Iraq they told us there were weapons of mass destruction there and we had to invade. Now of course billions of dollars and thousands of dead bodies later, we know there was no good reason to go to war.

And now we are told that chemical weapons is the reason to go to war, and soon they will drum up more reasons to get even more involved.

Now you know it does not matter what party is in power, they are both corrupt and represent an old world and paradigm that must go.

We are at a major crossroads in our journey between a dying Pisces Age and a developing Age of Aquarius.

Aquarius is about “we the people”, equality of all peoples, and Diversity in Unity. It is about respect for all peoples all over the world, and a knowing we are all of the same family of human.

Soon we will know there are peoples all over the Universe, not just here on Earth. Many powerful revelations about extraterrestrials are coming our ways, disclosures about aliens who have and are visiting our planet. Please take the time to view these two videos. The first is from an ex Defense Minister of Canada with powerful revelations about extraterrestrials: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDuqZbjxB_E&sns=em.  The second is an ex cia agent on his deathbed who says he saw aliens:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03jZEkTCSRI.  Judge for your self what seems true.

We are entering a powerful new chapter in human life here on Earth, and it is essential we develop a community of Aquarian Age humans, with leaders who know we need to live with love and truth as our guiding principles.

We need to rid our world of an old paradigm that condones power over other people, abuse and mistreatment of anyone, not matter what they have done, no matter if they are considered enemies or misfits or weirdos or inferiors or useless.   We need to transform a world that victimizes those who are more weak or vulnerable, that rewards those in powerful positions no matter what atrocities they perform or crimes they commit or corruptions they condone.

We are the ones that need to change from the inside out, ridding our consciousness of the programs the old world has conditioned us to believe. And at the same time we must empower ourselves, move beyond our self esteem issues, and join with others to change this world.

This week we move into our annual Summer Solstice on June 20/21. here on the East coast USA it is on June 21 at 1:04 AM. This is the day of most light minutes in a day. Yang is at its zenith, but Yin dark moments of the day begin to increase.  It is Sun in Cancer time of year, the time of Nature’s abundance here in the Northern Hemisphere on Earth.

Cancer is the sign of the great Mother, of the power of unconditional love and nurturance. It is soul, feelings and inner values. The planet that is most attuned to Cancer is the Moon.  Cancer time of year honors family, whatever kind of family that helps you feel “at home” and welcomed, whether blood related or not.   The weakness for Cancer can be lack of boundaries and overly permissive attitudes, but its caring for those who are vulnerable and in need can be bountiful.

Next Sunday is the Full Moon, on the 23rd; and on June 26 comes Mercury Retrograde again. We will look at those events next week.

Also next week I will create a new Youtube astrology forecast.

See you then,

Leo

Opening the Gates, and Astrology Forecast June 9-15

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Today June 8 at 11:56 AM there is a New Moon in Gemini.   This New Moon begins to propel us forward in our lives, after having experienced the intensity and shifting tides from Spring Eclipse Season 2013.

The next couple of months will bring the results and the ramifications of what was stirred up during this Eclipse Season that began in early April.

This New Moon in Gemini will help us to gather and sort out information related to what transpired during the Eclipse Season.   We will also need to find ways to better communicate what we know, what we feel. what we really want to say.

This lunar cycle, begun at this Gemini New Moon and lasting until the next New Moon in Cancer on July 8, provides a step forward into a new phase of our lives.

Hopefully we have been releasing that which is not right for us anymore, and seeing some light shining from our new life experience to come.

The next lunar cycle begins on July 8, at the Cancer New Moon, and will be accompanied by Saturn going Direct.     Saturn, Old Man Time, will let us know then that is time to make real what we have been visioning for our life.

So now at this New Moon in Gemini, and lasting through the whole lunar cycle, we move forward sensing more strongly where we are being directed in our lives.   But reality truly taking hold, and grounding us more fully into our new life, will happen during the next lunar cycle. That one begins at the Cancer New Moon with Saturn going Direct the same day.

Then in July there will be a grand water trine of Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces in the early degrees of those signs.  That soulful configuration will bring us more deeply into our feelings, perhaps bringing more nostalgia, grief, and deeper connections to our souls.

Events then will tend to help us to know more deeply what we have chosen to do and what directions we have picked to go toward.  Mercury will go Retrograde on July 2, close to the New Moon in Cancer and Saturn going Direct.

The Mercury Retrograde and Grand Water Trine may have us needing to reflect more on what direction our life is apparently going toward, and to feel more deeply the loss of what we are letting go.

But for now, it is time to move forward in our lives.  Open and clear thinking and communication are most important now as you move forward.  Even if you have seemingly made up your mind on some issues, life energies and events now might very well challenge those assumptions or decisions, trying to open your mind to other possibilities.

It is OK to keep an open mind, but do not allow your self to be taken off your soul path.  Your soul self, which is connected to the Source/Universe will show you the way.   Your ego self, wanting to keep you stuck in old, dysfunctional, and toxic ways needs to release its hold on you and your life.

If what you are contemplating choosing will keep you feeling trapped and depressed, or misunderstood and not seen and appreciated; then it cannot be right for you, no matter what the logical or practical or conventional viewpoint may be.

If what you are contemplating choosing makes you feel alive, hopeful, purposeful, loved and respected, especially by yourself, then why would you choose otherwise?

If what you are choosing brings you a more healthy and whole life and self, then taking the leap must be right and the Universe will support you.

It is true that you must always consider the practical side of life, but making security and stability more important than your heart and soul and soul path?

If what you are thinking of doing is just escaping and makes no practical sense at all, then of course it will not work in the long haul.  But if instead it truly feels like the old chapter of your life has truly ended and you know this new path lights the way for your new chapter, then take the leap.

You will know the old chapter has ended and needs to be let go if you have kept trying to make things work, but nothing ever changes.  It all feels stale and without spirit, and keeps you down and defeated.

The shakeups from this Eclipse Season were in large part to help you to release the old baggage in your mind and heart and life, and to awaken to a new you and new ways.

In the greater world, much shook up during the Eclipse Season. It began with the bombing at the Boston Marathon.  That bombing brought us back to the “War on Terror”.  And since that bombing we have revisited the methods our country has been using in that war.   It has come out how media has been  controlled for “security”, and how our phone records are being used for “security”.  The trial of Private Manning has begun also, which is about freedom of the press to leak information to the public, against the security establishment’s desire to keep things from that public.

If this world truly belongs to “we the people”, does the Military/Industrial establishment have the right to keep us in the dark about what they are doing?  Do we not have a right to know and decide what is right and wrong?  Should we be treated like children who must be seen but not heard from.  The government and corporate empire is more and more seeing everything we do, but is closing the doors to our ability to see the truth and be heard from.

Protests in the ’60s, ’70s, and even ’80s were free and open. Now protesters in America are put into limited protest barriers, not allowed to get close to where the action is.  Our freedoms are being limited in the name of “security” concerns, more and more every day.  This is what happened in Germany as fascism was taking over.

During the Eclipse Season the volatile situation in North Korea was apparently diffused.  But the situation in the Middle East has gotten more dangerous.   The situation in Syria is widening into a greater war, and soon a match will be lit to burn into an even greater war, threatening to burn out of control.  Watch closely over the next couple of months, as to the results and ramifications of the shakeups in the Middle East during the Eclipse Season.

Our economy and stock market is also very fragile, no matter what the Powers that Be try to convince us.  I believe it will get much worse before the autumn is over this year.

The world as we know it is transforming from an old Pisces Age into a New Age of Aquarius.  So of course the old institutions that have been holding up the old rules for living will be breaking down and transforming into healthier ones, ones refilled with heart and soul.

We in our personal lives and consciousness are transforming too. Our old ways and rules for living are dying away.  We are shedding our souls of the layers of programming from society and families that has kept our true self hidden.

As we shed these layers, we begin to spread our wings and live our lives with true authenticity and purpose.   For now as we move through this Gemini New Moon, we open the gates to more freedom to be our true selves.

See you next week,

Leo

Moving Forward After Spring Eclipse Season 2013 and Astrology Forecast June 2-8

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now in the last quarter moon phase of the lunar cycle that began on May 9.    That lunar cycle began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus.  Following that was the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius, which was the last eclipse of 3,  of the 2013 Spring Eclipse Season that began in early April.

Spring Eclipse Season 2013 effectively ends at the New Moon in Gemini on June 8 this coming week.  At the same time the Eclipse Season ends, there is a New Moon, so we begin a new cycle.

This new cycle will be quite powerful, I believe, as it will trigger events connected to the passing Eclipse Season.   What happens around this New Moon in Gemini, and lasting until the next New Moon on July 8, which is in Cancer- is important.

That is because a new chapter in our lives begins, a new chapter that results largely from what got shaken up during the passing Eclipse Season.

Many people experienced breakdowns and/or breakthroughs in their relationships, careers,  families, or mental outlooks or beliefs.   As things shifted out of the old predictable behaviors and mindsets, new ways of thinking and being have been sought and taken up in some cases.

Many are still “picking up the pieces” and/or looking over the changed landscape of their lives.  Take a look at your life and/or your attitudes now in comparison to what it was in March or early April.

For many much has shifted and changed.  There may be a new way now of seeing your self, seeing others, or seeing your life.  It may be time to make a more firm commitment to something or someone, or on the contrary a need to release and let go of that which no longer is right for you.

Whatever has been shifting and changing will be ready to break loose after this New Moon in Gemini.   Things will open up more and events that are a direct result of the shifts during this Eclipse Season will begin to show.

It will be time to move forward into this new chapter of life, and the events that manifest will show us the way forward.  That which has kept on hold will shake loose and in some cases will open Pandora’s Box of possibilities.

What is important now is to set priorities and make intention.  Then after that let the Universe show you the way, as it brings you some results from what  transpired during the Eclipse Season.

Since as this next New Moon is in Gemini, there may be a lot of new ideas and possibilities, opening up of minds, new interests, and a need to make communication a top priority.  The Gemini New Moon on June 8 also brings more activity, and with all this activity and ideas and fast moving minds and talking, there can be a tendency toward being more scattered and anxious.

So do your best to stay grounded and centered and focused on the task at hand.  In fact finding focus may be very important as we approach and go through the New Moon in Gemini, especially so because Neptune will be strongly emphasized around the New Moon.

Mystical inner directed Neptune changes directions and squares Mars the day before the New Moon, on June 7.   So some will be overwhelmed by the influx of a confusing array of possibilities. Others, who let go and surrender, may find more magic and spiritual connection at that time.

In the greater world the New Moon in Gemini is poised to begin a time period of powerful world events. These world events will be the result of what has been revealed and developing during the Eclipse Season.

We have been reminded again of just how much our climate has been changing with more and more unusual and dramatic weather events, as has been shown during the Eclipse Season with the devastating tornadoes.   Climate change is real.  You can debate how much we humans are contributing to the change, but it is obvious something big is shifting.

And there is no debate how much our corporate and government power structures are dominating our lives.  As an example Monsanto is answering to no one in regards to how their products are making our world more toxic.   Big Government also is intruding more and more into our lives and our freedoms, lying to us, covering up the truth, and making corruption a normal way of doing business.

And perhaps most dangerous of all is the mess happening in the Middle East, right now surrounding the war in Syria.  This war threatens to become a wider regional war, and even a world war.  The self serving attitudes of all concerned precludes finding true peace and resolution.   So many countries are swarming Syria, waiting for personal spoils and more power and control of the region.

Resentments are deep, desires to listen to the needs of others almost non existent.  This Middle East region, where many of the world’s major religions and civilizations began, is a reflection of the dying old world.   Religions and cultures are separate and in conflict, not seeing what connects us all, not knowing we are all members of the same Human Family on Earth.

Each out for itself, not trusting others, not truly trusting the Universe (God) as a place of connection and Unity.  Self fulfilling prophecy is playing out, greater war is on the horizon.  That toxic cell in our collective human body, so well represented in the Middle East, must be eradicated like a cancer, as new healthy cells are ready to be born.  Do your best not to invest your energy and emotion into who “wins and loses” in Syria and the Middle East. It is old attitudes and belief systems that need to be defeated and released.  If you attach you will be engulfed with those same emotions of fear, hatred and revenge.  Let it go and stay on your spiritual path.

Keep in mind that the world economy is also in need of transforming into one built with the foundation of sharing the Earth’s bounty.   Greed and dog eat dog competition are destroying so many of this world’s residents.  New ways must be found for our children and children’s children.  They will as we enter  the Age of Aquarius.

So these next two lunar cycles, which will last from June 8 to August 6, will flesh out much of what this next chapter in our personal and collective lives will be like.  We will know more clearly what direction we are moving in and what are our new priorities.

No matter how it may look at times in the greater world, there is a powerful movement toward this New Age.  Look closely at your children to see the evolution of our species. Give them structure, love, and guidance, but resist teaching them to be just like you or how you judge they should be.

Remember how your parents did that to you?  You may think it is different the way you do that to them because your values and enlightenment is superior to your parents.  Nature, the Universe is evolving consciousness with each new generation.  They have in their hearts and DNA a script that is more aligned to the future than you.

This does not mean to be permissive and overly lenient with them. They need discipline and rules and boundaries and a sense of civility and being relational.  But they do not need to be judged, dominated, and programmed.  They have much to teach us if we listen. They are the Aquarian Age, knowing in their souls of equality, Love and Truth, and Diversity in Unity.

They carry a mold of how humans can be respectful and caring of one another, honoring of individuality and authenticity.  If we do not try to make them just like us, or to fit into some family tradition or role, or to be some American robot who is fueled more by patriotism than universal connection, then they will better lead our world into the Age of Aquarius.
