Illusion or Awakening and Astrology Forecast July 28- August 3

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The week ahead will bring a combination of many different and contradictory energies.    We will be in the last 10 days before a very energized ignition of new beginnings at the New Moon in Leo on August 6.  

Time before a new moon usually brings us to a winding down, some introspection, and preparing for the new beginnings at the new moon.    And of course this last 10 days before an especially important New moon in Leo will have some of that slowing down quality.

And a Grand Sextile alignment on Monday July 29 will add to the feeling of “down and in” and not “up and out”.  There are 6 planets in sextile to one another that day, all six of those planets in yin signs:  Moon in Taurus, Jupiter in Cancer, Venus in Virgo, Saturn in Scorpio, Pluto in Capricorn, and Neptune in Pisces.    These are all water and earth signs, energies that are yinward and inward signs.

So combined with our also moving into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that day, there is a rather slow and “down” movement.  And with only the Sun and Uranus in fire signs, there is not much zest represented either.

Yet counter to those perhaps depressing energies for some, there is a very energized and powerful planetary movement also.  Mars will be triggering the Uranus Pluto square as it opposes Pluto in Capricorn on Saturday/Sunday and squares Uranus in Aries Tuesday through Thursday.

So be very careful not to get too angry or out of control the next several days, as those Mars movements to the transformational planets Uranus and Pluto will tend to shake things up in a powerful way.

Whereas the Grand Sextile and last quarter Moon will tend to flat line you emotionally and spiritually, the Mars movements will activate you and tend to bring more powerful energies.

Overall this coming week will tend to awaken you to Truth, to core reality, and should motivate you to get moving forward with your life.    There may be some disillusion mixed in with the awakening to what is real and true, some disappointment with people, with life, and situations in your life.

That awakening will help you to let go of people or situations or old patterns that will now strike you as impossible to continue.   You will understand at a deeper level than before why it is insane to do things the same way over and over again and keep expecting better results than are possible.

The situations, decisions, and events that happen this week could have long lasting effects on your life.  The next week, starting at the New Moon in Leo on August 6, there will be a more fast pace of action.   Jupiter will be strongly aspecting the Pluto/Uranus revolutionary and evolutionary square at that time, thrusting lives more fast forward.

Whatever was shaken up and out and began to be seeded during Spring Eclipse Season April-June this year, will soon find its way forward in reality and manifestation.

In the Greater World events are erupting that are changing our world.  In Egypt, as Mars is now igniting the Uranus/Pluto square, there is growing violence and chaos that will change not only Egypt in a big way, but also the Middle East and the world.

More and more whistleblowers like Snowden and Assange and Bradley will come forward to expose previously held secrets and expose more truths of corruption and dominance from Corporate and Government institutions.

America and Israel will flex their military muscles more in Syria in order to gain more control of the strategic and resource rich Middle East.   This region of the world will likely ignite the spark of worldwide transformation out of an old age of superpowers and Empires and into a world of Diversity in Unity.

We are also in the beginning stages of spiritual renaissance for the human family on Earth, as we learn there are many different dimensions of reality, beings who dwell on inner planes of spirit, and beings who dwell in many other places in the Universe.

What we have come to rely on as Reality is in large part a collective consensus programmed into our minds and hearts.  As we move through the old age and that dying paradigm of reality, we awaken to new wonders.

So it is OK to grieve the death of our illusions, the passing of our innocence  to what kind of people and institutions have been running our world, and what kind of lies we have believed.

These disillusions will help us to trust our own minds and hearts more and more, not the mainstream institutions anymore.  The Universe has provided us in recent times with the internet, a place we can still find information and do research outside the dominance of the Matrix.

Slowly but surely, but faster all the time, we are trusting our own individual perception of reality; and as we do that more and more as a collective human family, we change our reality and usher in the Age of Aquarius.

How did we ever get fooled into believing that certain people are better and deserve more than others.   Why did we buy into the idea of emperors or kings and queens or dictators or wealthy people or aristocracy running our lives and world?  Historically many of these people are decadent, corrupt, and murderous and have created a world of their rules that perpetuates their wealth and power.

The Earth and our human family of souls will obviously be better off when we the people wake up and take full responsibility.   As we evolve beyond the old paradigm of separation and survival of the fittest mentality, as we evolve beyond a war of the sexes, as we evolve beyond believing in superior/inferior, as we evolve beyond perpetrator/victim consciousness, and as we evolve beyond trying to defeat darkness, we then know the Oneness of All That Is.   We enter Diversity in Unity. We enter the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo

Moving Out of the Fog as Mercury Goes Direct and Astrology Forecast July 21-27

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 20, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this forecast Saturday July 20, Mercury has slowed down while Retrograde into stationary position, and is about to go back Direct at 2:22 PM. 

This has been a rather difficult Mercury Retrograde for most people, and many are sighing a big sense of relief.   It may take, however, a few more days before you feel completely out of the woods and into the blue skies of mental clarity.

So feel the transition today, but still be careful of your thinking and communicating process.  Do you remember November 2000, on the night of the Presidential Election between Gore and Bush II?  That night Mercury was moving from Retrograde back to Direct, and there was all sorts of confusion about who won, back and forth on the announcements by the mainstream media.

It is usually not that mentally challenging as Mercury changes back to Direct, but I am sure you get the message that clarity of mind can be illusive when Mercury is first changing back to Direct.

But soon Mercury will get back to “normal” Direct speed, and you will know the difference.    During this transition of Mercury, there will shifts in both the solar and lunar cycles also.

The Sun shifts from Cancer to Leo on Monday, and there is a Full Moon in Aquarius a short two hours later at 2:07 PM EDT.  And to add to the shifting planetary tides, Mars makes a very emotionally energized conjunction with Jupiter in Cancer.

Most recently, with the Grand Trine in Water and Saturn shifting to Direct, there has been a slow heavy density to move through, and unsettling emotions to deal with, along with Mercury Retrograde’s mental challenges.

The Sun’s movement out of Cancer and into Leo brings us needs to be more creative and spontaneous, to have more fun, and to play.   The Sun in Leo then meets up in opposition to the Moon in Aquarius, making a Full Moon.

That Full Moon combines the Sun in Leo need to trust one’s open and creative heart with the Moon in Aquarius need to trust one’s mind to inventively think one’s way through a situation.  Heart versus Head is keynote for this Full Moon.

Mars conjunct Jupiter in Cancer initiates a very energized time period coming up, when we will be moving forward, out of the reflective, angst ridden time period we have been slogging through the last several weeks.

Things will be begin to open up this week, but you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

From this week though much of August, powerful energies moving us fast forward will be expressed.

First Mars, and then even more intensely Jupiter, will be making a T-Square with the volatile, transformational, evolutionary and revolutionary Uranus/Pluto square.

The balls of change will begin to roll between now and August 6. Then after August 6 at the New Moon in Leo, as Jupiter opposes Pluto, movement forward will accelerate.

If you have been waiting for awhile, especially since the shakeups of the Spring Eclipse Season, to get going with a new chapter of your life, to move forward into new beginnings; the time is soon coming.

If you already have entered that new chapter of your life, but still have not seen the Go Light for full entrance into it, that light will soon shine.

August should open windows of awakening and doorways of new life ventures.   Some of this shift may bring more chaotic energy with it also, helping us to shed the past and welcome the future.

In the greater world, the Middle East is continuing to brew with powerful change coming.  Secretary of State for the USA, John Kerry, has instigated talks between Israel and Palestine.   This is a most important issue to be worked out in the Middle East.  Its resolution would bring greater peace to the region and world.

But of course people have been trying for many, many years to find resolution of the Israeli/Palestinian issue.  To no avail.   Even just the start of these talks, however, will turn so many wheels turning  throughout the region and world.

The conditions of volatile Egypt and Syria will be shifting in a big way as the Israeli/Palestinian issue moves forward.   Israel’s desires to attack Iran will also be influenced by these peace efforts between Israel and Palestine.

The powerful transformation of this region will accelerate during the month of August 2013.

Of course the culture wars in the USA have been ignited with the Trayvon Martin killing, and trial of George Zimmerman.  Nevertheless, we know that the election of President Barack Obama brought a sense of optimism for race relations in the USA.

And while that election certainly showed us that there has been great progress in race relations since the ’60s civil rights movement, this trial showed us there is still much to be done.

African Americans, the only group of people who came to this land of immigrants in chains, have a sensitivity to racial injustice and racial sterotyping beyond what others can imagine.

Imagine that your ancestors were slaves in this country. Really imagine that.   Not coming to liberation from English oppression on the Mayflower, and not coming to find opportunity and religious freedom from Europe in the early 20th century, but treated like animals and dragged here.

It is true that it has been over a hundred and fifty years since emancipation during the civil war, and it is true that racial prejudice goes both ways.    And it is true that we all need to know we are all one family, moving toward Diversity in Unity for the Age of Aquarius.

But it is also true that programmed deep in the consciousness of some people, both black and white in America, is that blacks are inferior and have criminal tendencies, and that whites will ruthlessly keep black people down.

This is part of an old paradigm that is dying with an old age.  The ’60s revolution, with Uranus conjunct Pluto, brought us the civil rights movement. Uranus square Pluto, now moving through our world, will clear up the remnants of what is left of our old racial paradigm.

The Zimmerman case shows us we still need to clear up our stereotypes, judgments, and prejudices.   In its wisdom our Universe brings to light that which we need to release and that which we need to evolve into.

This collective mindset and belief system still needs more rays of healing and transformation for many.     As you look at young people in this country, however, you see the hope for that Age of Aquarius future. So many are color blind, as the worst years of  violent racial division get more and more dim in memory.

Keep in mind, however, whether we are talking about an individual or a culture or country, when transformational energies are strong we face our demons again.

Whatever is left from old traumas comes back into our consciousness, sometimes in “ugly” ways, and gives us an opportunity to do more inner work, to release old wounds, to heal from our past, and to access more awakening light into our souls and minds.

We then evolve our consciousness and change our lives for the better, for ourselves, others and the world.

Stay aligned and present, centered in your heart, and open to the voice of the Universe. And all is well.

See you next week,

Leo

Clearing and Finding Direction and Astrology Forecast July 14-20

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on July 13, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

There are some shifting tides this week, not the least of which is the fact that Mercury will go back Direct next Saturday July 20 at 2:22 PM EDT.

Many people have been dealing with some powerful emotions and emotional issues lately.  Lightness, and carefree feelings have been rather difficult to find. There are many planets in soulful and feeling oriented water signs, including a Grand Trine in water, which will be exact this coming week.

There have been no planets in light and detached air signs, and Saturn’s force of gravity has been very strong.    Moving fast forward has not been in the cards yet, as it has been more aligned to process one’s thoughts and feelings, to work issues out, to face facts, and to plan and organize what is to come.

This week the Grand Trine in water continues and becomes more influential as it is exact this week, so it will still be a time to work with and express your feelings and emotions. For some this has been a very difficult time, as emotions have felt powerful and for some even overwhelming.

There have been emotional breakdowns for some, yet there have also been emotional breakthroughs for others, getting to the core of issues and expressing openly what had been previously guarded and controlled.

This time period has been absolutely necessary, as people are getting more real and looking more deeply and soundly at what previously had been only an idea or inspiration or desire or un-grounded plan.

For most of this coming week Mercury will still be Retrograde, adding to the theme of reflection and introspection, of rethinking one’s plans, of readjusting one’s perceptions.

So this week will still not be a time to leap forward, or to make that big decision absolutely final.     When Mercury goes Direct late this week on the 20th,  the “airwaves” of thinking and communicating will begin to clear up, yet it may take at least a couple of days to have complete clarity and solid direction.

Saturn’s frustrating limitations should also be passing this week, and the feeling of slugging through the mud in your life will begin to lift.

This feeling of slow motion or boredom or of being held back will begin to lift this week, and there should be a renewal of moving energy at our disposal later in the week.

A large part of the reason for the shift of energies will be the changing of directions of Uranus to retrograde on Wednesday the 17th. So Uranus’ awakening, liberating energies will tend to thrust us “outside the boxes” of our minds and lives. As a planet changes directions, from retrograde to direct or from direct to retrograde, its meaning and “frequency” permeate our energy fields.

Since it will be going retrograde, its powers of transformation will begin to get more internalized, giving us more power for awakening consciousness.

True movement forward, however, will not happen until after the 6th of August.  The New Moon in Leo that day will be the first new moon after Mercury goes direct and after the Grand Trine in water begins to lose its strength.

That New Moon in Leo, for many, will be the true beginning of a new chapter in their lives, since all the shakeups of the Spring Eclipse Season.

Events that have been put on hold, new beginnings that have been delayed, ideas and inspirations that have needed to be processed and made real, will be ready for action on that date or shortly before or after.

After that,  the Eclipse Seasons of Autumn 2013 and Spring 2014 will have us taking the ride in a most intense way, through this new era in our lives.

So for now, stay patient, prepare, and don’t let tides of emotions overwhelm you or get you fearful.

If you can process and clear the more negative emotions, you can be taken into some rather poetic and profound soul journeys, with new insights and breakthroughs, an expansion of consciousness, and greater empathy for others and your self.

Those soul openings will give you a better foundation for what you will build and engage in later.

The powers of transformation for us personally and in the greater world are quite strong now and in the near future.  For now this means inner growth, and later this will translate into a changing of our lives, a movement forward in our work, homes, families, and relationships.

In the greater world a young man Edward Snowden is making a powerful statement for doing what he believes is right, not what will benefit him personally.  He gave up a good job, a life of paradise in Hawaii, because he sincerely believed his country was doing wrong and spying on fellow Americans without their knowledge.

Many people in this world, somewhat understandably, will not fight against the system because they do not want to threaten the comfort of their lives.  They saw us going unjustly into Iraq, killing thousands of people and spending billions of dollars; they see our lives more and more controlled by huge corporations who have bought out our government representatives.  They see a growing Big Brother attitude of government, prying into our lives more and more through our social networks and communication systems, and potentially drone activity.

They see how truly difficult it really has become to change the system, to fight for what is right, to fight for fairness and justice.

Yet this young man shows courage and risks his own life for what he believes in. We have watched the USA government control nations all over the globe, as an Empire, to take away Snowden’s legal right to asylum.   We watched as western governments brought down an airplane that was occupied by the President of Bolivia, because they wrongly suspected Edward Snowden was on it.

This is important to the Empire because it wants to make this man an example, so no others can speak up and challenge the system.   In polls the mjority of citizens of the USA say he is a whistleblower not a traitor.   But of course what the people want and believe is not as important as keeping the security of the country and the power of the Empire.

And in Syria the American people also do not want to get more involved, by an overwhelming percentage in polls. But soon, make no mistake about it, a false flag incident or some other great excuse will be made to attack Syria.  More and more Senators are speaking out for that action now.

And in Egypt, the military performed a coup, which is against international law, to depose of the president Morsi.   And soon they will make his party, the Muslim Brotherhood, illegal again. Whether you like the Muslim Brotherhood or not, they were legally voted in by the people.

America will not call it a military coup, and neither will the United Nations.

The prize through all this is the resource filled, and strategically important Middle East. This is about power and control of the region, and soon it will degenerate into a huge war.

The Age of Aquarius demands equality, no superpowers.  The Age of Aquarius demands Diversity in Unity, liberation and freedom, a power to the people of the world, not kings and queens, or Big Brother governments, or mega corporations, not presidents or dictators.

The waves of change are getting stronger and are looking to move through the “Chakra System”, so to speak, of our Human Collective Consciousness. Just as with an individual person, there are blocks that need to be cleared, a releasing and healing of old patterns and wounds.  Just as with an individual, the issues that are locked up in the blocks come out in full force.

The goal is for the natural rays of the Universe, as it brings through new consciousness energies from the Aquarian Age, to not be impeded by the old toxic patterns and energies.

So expect there to be a powerful cleansing of our Human Condition and the resulting events that will be necessary to transform our lives.

For now, however, work in your own “inner kingdom”, so you will be cleansed and healed of old patterns and energies that keep you stuck in an ego that does not represent your true and authentic soul self.

As you more deeply connect with that authenticity, you connect with the Universe and its evolutionary passage into the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo

Getting Through the Night and Astrology Forecast July 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on July 6, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The energies right now are rather difficult to handle and navigate for many people.  We are in the dark phase of the Moon, waiting for a New Moon on Monday;  Saturn’s rather heavy and “negative” vibes are strong as it is changing directions back to Direct this Monday; and Mercury is still Retrograde until July 20.  Additionally Jupiter in Cancer is beginning to form a soulful Grand Trine in water with Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces.

You may feel like you are slugging through the mud in your life. Things are either not moving at all or moving in a way that is stressful and feels negative at times.   It may be difficult as well to find solutions or clarity, and communication may feel blocked or foggy.

Sometimes we have to simply “hang in there” and wait for the energies to shift.

The first shift will be this Monday July 8, at the New Moon in Cancer, as Saturn actually begins to go Direct as well.

This New Moon will prompt us to move forward with a new lunar cycle beginning.   You will hopefully feel around this time at least a subtle shift forward and some relief.    New Moons bring new starts, and Saturn going back Direct is like Father Time starting the clock back ticking again.

Yet with Mercury still Retrograde and the Grand Trine in feeling oriented water signs, there will still not be any radical movement forward or much help in making big decisions or starting any big and important projects.

You may at least intuitively sense an arrow from the Universe pointing in a certain direction forward.  But please keep in mind that the best thing to do right now is to “process” our thoughts and feelings, not jump to conclusions, or leap into action.

Not jumping to conclusions might be really difficult now, as you may feel very strongly about something.    But feelings and thoughts now may be rather fluid and changeable with the Grand Trine in water, and Mercury Retrograde.

Remember that all big decisions need to be made “holistically”, meaning you want your mind and heart and body wisdom to be all on the same page, in agreement.   And with Mercury Retrograde and the water trine it may happen that things continue to shift back and forth for awhile, that new info or changed feelings alter one’s perceptions.

Some of you also may be feeling as if you have gone backwards, and are now dealing with old patterns of thought and behavior again, issues you were sure you had overcome.

If that is the case, do not judge yourself.  This is temporary and you will soon get back to your knowing the progress you have been making.

This is not an easy time for many people now to stay positive, confident, and trusting.  It is best to use this time to reflect and process, to get in touch with deeper feelings, with what is affecting you at deeper levels of mind and soul.   Getting to a bottom line, holding a rigid agenda, or being goal oriented will not work as well as usual.

So if you are feeling really stressed to find direction or move forward or make a decision, please wait unless you are truly ready to do so. I know how anxious many people get when they have to hold the tension while waiting for clarity or answers.  Do not let the pain of stress force you to jump before it is time.   Find a way to let go and relax as much as possible and to trust that what you need, when you need it, will come to you at the right time.

I know that may be difficult to do now as the heavy “negative” energies that breed fear and mistrust are strong now.  So we need to “go to another level” inside our psyches in order to be OK.

Remember that the “kingdom is within” and that a focus on finding your salvation outside your self is misguided now.

On July 20 Mercury will go direct and on August 6 there is a New Moon in fiery and creative Leo.   Wait if you can until those “milestones” of time before you go fast forward.

In the meantime use this New Moon in Cancer this Monday July 8 at 3:14 AM EDT to begin a month of being in a womb of protection.  In that womb you can nurture your self, go deeper inside your soul, and be around people you consider family, blood or otherwise. It is time to be around people who you can be your self with, who do not judge you or expect you to live up to their standards.

For a few days now, while Saturn is “in the air” with its its stern, serious, and sometimes grave attitudes, you will need more than usual a sense of feeling safe and loved.  The best use of Saturn now is to be disciplined, to face up to what you need to look at, to set up healthy boundaries, and to have patience.

It is true we are in powerfully transformational times, but sometimes we need to rest and recharge.  Do your best to find that time now.

In the greater world Egypt is breaking down again and shows us that it has not found its way yet.   What it is going through is reflective of the nature of change now.

There is a big wave wanting to bring liberation and freedom and “power to the people”.   This is the Aquarian Age getting stronger and stronger.  At the same time there is a powerful backlash, which seeks to control and dominate and slow down change.

In Egypt many are fighting for these freedoms and they have only recently begun to experiment with democracy and legitimate voting.  But their military is still the final word and dominant there. And yet more protests, more fighting, and the beginnings of civil war are breaking out.

In our own country the big story is of Edward Snowden and his leaking of government secrets, secrets of the USA spying in a kind of Big Brother way. At the same time there is desire to keep USA military security strong, hence the fear of information leaking.

If we truly want freedom and the responsibility that requires, do we not as citizens of this country and world want to know everything our leaders are deciding and doing?  Are we not the ones who ultimately must decide in an Aquarian Age of freedom, equality, Diversity in Unity, and governance by the people- not big government or big corporations.

So again liberation, freedom and “power to the people” runs against a strong desire to keep controls through dominance by government, corporations and military.

And liberation brings some chaos by its nature, and the backlash is to keep everything under control.

Remember this is what your personal transformation of consciousness and your life can look like.  There is a part of you wanting to be free of the controls over your life and you seek change to do so. And another part of you may be clinging tight to what is familiar and makes you feel secure.

Trust the process to show you the way, trust your inner light and the light of the Universe to guide your way.  Resist your ego taking over so you can feel in control.  You are here on this Earth in your body for a reason.

Your life is meaningful and your soul’s journey sacred.  Remember this and it becomes easier to trust and walk in alignment.

See you next week,

Leo
