Bursting Forward into the Future and Astrology Forecast September 28- October 11.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We let you know last week that the Autumn Equinox this year, with Pluto changing directions, would be more intense than usual and would likely include powerful world events.

So the USA began a bombing campaign in Syria that day against the Islamic State.   Pluto going Direct on the Equinox is part of the planetary signature for Autumn 2014, and promises a most important and intense autumn ahead.

There will be a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on October 8.   And since transformational Uranus and Pluto will join that Full Moon Eclipse to make a Cardinal T-Square, we can expect a very strong time period ahead.

I am in Italy now writing this Forecast, and next week I will likely be out of internet reach for my usual Saturday blog entry on October 4.  I will be in Italy still on October 11, and at that time I will likely be able to write my forecast for that week ahead.

Then on October 18, just before the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on  October 23,  I will be back in New England and putting out my regular blog entry from back home again.

So this entry is for the next two weeks, from September 28- October 12.

I assume much will be shaking up during that time, especially after October 4.  On October 4 Mercury will change directions from Direct to Retrograde at 1:02 PM EDT.  It will not go back Direct until October 25. Pluto and Uranus will also be triggered that day, so more intense energies will be opening up around that time.  Mercury will be Retrograde during both eclipses as the second eclipse is on October 23. It will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio.

Four days after Mercury goes Retrograde on October 4, there is the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on October 8.  It is at 6:51 AM EDT.

So as usual Mercury Retrograde will bring a shift in energies of mind and communication.  Perceptions change, sometimes very subtly at first, but once it has been going on for a awhile you know things seem “off” or different.  Best not to try to “figure it out” too much.  It is better to trust the unfoldment of a situation rather than to over analyze. Remember that the left brain is not moving in its normal way, but more creative, intuitive, imaginative functions ate better.

It is also good to be in reflective mode, not in a rush to judgment.    Sometimes equipment, especially communication type equipment, can have breakdowns.    People from one’s past often come back in one’s life during Mercury Retrograde, or at least they tend to come back more strongly in dreams or memories.   Making big decisions or signing important documents is not advised unless necessary.

And with the Eclipses happening at the same time, things may seem very out of the ordinary.    Everything may not be as it seems, so trust the process, let everything play out before jumping to conclusions or being impulsive or emotionally reactive.

During the month of October, or even a bit before, shifting tides will help you to release what needs to go, and to open up to new light, ideas, and inspirations.   You can be taken out of any ruts you may be in, and have the opportunity to shift your attitudes or beliefs.  Old patterns can be transformed, healing is easier to access.

World events should intensify greatly during Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.  The war on the Islamist State will intensify.  Issues with Israel and Iran may break open.  The economy may face new shocks in October.  Issues with Russia may intensify.   And other important global events may happen also.  The Middle East is in the process of great transformation, with more and more chaos engulfing the region.  It is getting more and more complicated there, and allegiances are always shifting.   Eradicating the “enemy” is impossible and the bombing in Syria and Iraq is only stirring up a hornets nest of world violence.

The first eclipse, the Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries is a Cardinal  T-Square  makes close aspect again to the USA Sun and Saturn from its natal chart of July 4 1776.    The USA over the next year will be going through much important change.

It is in the process of losing its Superpower status, and becoming a more equal member of the world community.   Military and Economic challenges will greatly affect the USA over that time period.

The Aries Full Moon Eclipse Cardinal T-Square will tend to bring up issues about independence versus making relationship.  Also issues around empowerment and self assertion are likely to come up.  Do your best to balance your own needs with the needs of others during this time period. You may be pressed to make improvements in that area of relating.

Remember you are breaking out of old programming that limits your ability to actualize your authentic soul self and to find more purpose and satisfaction in your life.    During this Autumn Eclipse Season you may become more aware that you have been trying to be someone you are expected to be instead of being true to your self.   Begin or continue to let go of people who you have developed unhealthy dynamics with.   In some cases you will be able to work out these dynamics with others and transform how you relate with them.

There is nothing to freak out about during this Eclipse Season. The best way to look at it is to see that movement is necessary now in order to align your self with the waves of change from planetary configurations.  It is so easy to just be a servant to our habits and usual patterns of behavior.  During these Eclipse Seasons we are reminded that life does not stay the same.  Our lives have seasons just like nature does, and we need at these times to put to rest that which is ending, and to open up to an embrace the natural transformations.

The Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year opened the gates to a new collective and personal chapter of our lives.   Now the Autumn Eclipse Season pushes us further into that new chapter, and in the process helps us to release the old and press on into the new.   We are closer than ever to a full admittance into the Age of Aquarius.   The birth pains may increase at times, but keep your eye on the  bigger picture:  Birth of a New Age.

Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 Begins and Astrology Forecast September 21-27.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The winds are shifting this coming week and picking up strength, bringing us the beginning of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

We may begin to experience or at least feel these winds of change as early as Sunday when Mars squares Neptune.  Then on Monday September 22 at 10:29 PM EDT is the Autumn Equinox.

This year’s Autumn Equinox is more powerful then usual and promises a most intense Autumn season ahead.  That is so because Pluto will be changing directions from Retrograde to Direct less than two hours before the Equinox.

That means that Pluto’s energy and meaning will be a big part of what is felt and experienced surrounding the time of the Equinox.

Autumn Equinox is like the sunset time of the year, as the Sun is just beginning to come down for the year.    Light and dark minutes are equal at the Autumn Equinox, but right after that moment of equality dark minutes begin to increase as light minutes begin to wane.

The Yin energies get stronger, and colder darker times ahead can be felt.  And of course this is not just felt physically, as the holistic world we are in lets us know it is time to begin to feel more deeply emotionally and spiritually as well.

Since the Autumn Equinox also means that the Sun is moving into Libra for a month, we become more socially conscious and more relationship conscious at this time.  Our yang motivations to focus more on our self and our personal needs and personal growth are beginning to shift.

Now we realize and appreciate our needs to love and be loved, to make connection, to live more outside our personal bubble.  We may also, as is aligned with the coming darker and colder days, realize we need others in our life to feel truly warm and safe.

This year the Autumn Equinox may bring us to feel this shift more intensely and deeply, as Pluto is in the spotlight of our awareness.

Pluto, Guardian of the Underworld, brings up in a powerful way the “darker” feelings, thoughts, and secrets.  It sometimes quite powerfully or explosively brings up emotions or issues that we have suppressed and even repressed.

In relationship to others that means we may speak our minds in a more direct way, emotionally letting out that which we have previously held in.

In that process we are speaking our truth and hence empowering ourselves.  We may also be pushing the buttons of someone else and causing them to also say things in a more primal and direct manner.

This may cause a very intense and meaningful discussion that clears the air and either brings about a healing or more animosity toward one another.   Sometimes there is also a letting go of someone who is not right for you anymore.

In the greater world there is a possibility of a powerful world event around this time;  but if not now,  Pluto being a  part of the signature of Autumn 2014 promises us that important world events will happen definitely during the season at some time. The Middle East is still in the spotlight for potential events with Iraq and Syria, Islamic State and Israel.

This is a dark moon time early this week, bringing a New Moon in Libra on September 24 at 2:14 AM EDT.

After the lunar crescent is seen in the sky on the 25th, the energies of the New Moon in Libra truly take form. That means that words and intentions become more about “us” and “you” than “me” and ‘mine”.

It becomes easier to find connections in all sorts of ways;  and desires for beauty, refinement, and social graces get stronger.  Make sure, however, “not to give up the baby along with the bathwater”. That means you do not want to accommodate others so much that you are forgetting about your own needs.

Work things out with others now and truly listen, but make sure you balance that with standing your ground around your own integrity.  Pluto changing directions could cause some eruptions of “negative” emotions as part of the process of trying to work things out.  Libra usually brings more peace and harmony, but Pluto will bring more intensity than the usual Libra time of year.

Remember that Autumn Eclipse Season begins this week and it is just the beginning of a most powerful season ahead. There will be much movement soon in many ways.

Stuck energies do not stand much of a chance, old patterns will be challenged, new ways of thinking and acting will be breaking through.

You are in a New Chapter of your life, and whatever is in your life that does not fit into this new phase will need to be let go.  You may try to hold on, but that will only bring more pain and misery.

Though it may feel unsafe or insecure to let go, just allow your self to feel what it would be like to keep the status quo.  Would you feel trapped?  Would your heart and spirit be dimmed?

If what you are holding onto represents a disrespecting of your self, are you ready now to respect and love your self more by letting go of the old person or job or home or belief?

This could be a very important time this season to liberate your self from that which has chained your heart and soul and free spirit. It is time to move on.

To add to the shifting tides, Mercury will go Retrograde on October 4.  Then on October 8 is the first of two eclipses:  A New Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries.  This Eclipse makes a powerful T-square with Uranus and Pluto, bringing huge waves of healing and transformation.

Then on October 23 is a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio.    That Lunar cycle will take us to the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 22, a time when Autumn Eclipse Season comes to an end.

Saying Goodbye to Summer and Astrology Forecast September 14-20.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 13, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week brings us the last of summer and the last quarter of the lunar cycle that was begun at the New Moon in Virgo on August 25.

It is a week of feeling the endings, of grieving the past, of acceptance, of fixing and healing, of putting in order and preparing.

It may be easy to feel “down” this week, and it is OK as so many natural endings are occurring.  Yet we are also accepting this new chapter of life we have embarked on both personally and globally.

The Cardinal Grand Cross and the aspects that followed it this year have thrust us into a new world for better and worse.  Of course ultimately this new chapter is a stepping stone on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

But sometimes that may not feel so positive as there are obstacles on our path.   And making change is not always easy, even if we know it is change for the best.

So this week we pause before the intensity picks up appreciably again soon.

Next week on September 22 there will be the Autumn Equinox.  Then on September 23/24 there will be a New Moon in Libra.  And quite importantly add to the mix that on September 22, a mere two hours before the equinox, Pluto will be changing directions from Retrograde to Direct.

Pluto (“ruling” planet of Scorpio) changing directions not only puts its powerful and transformational energy in the spotlight at the turning of seasons, but it gives us a strong signal of what is to come this autumn.

Pluto is the mythological “Guardian of the Underworld’, a power that goes deep into the core of the inner world of mystery and brings up the shadows, and the secrets.

It represents also the more passionate and primal instincts of our human nature and when triggered can open up “Pandora’s Box” of previously suppressed and repressed emotions.

After the expressions of more primal emotions, there is a clearing and healing.  Then there is a transformation and a rebirth or renewal of life energy.

Pluto, as part of the “signature” of our Autumn Equinox this year, strongly suggests a quite intense Autumn Eclipse Season ahead.

This promises to be a most powerful Autumn Eclipse Season, mostly because Uranus and Pluto make another exact square to one another, and will help form with the Lunar Eclipse in Aries an important Cardinal T-Square formation on October 8.  Then that Lunar Eclipse will be followed up by a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio two weeks later, on October 23.

Life changing world events will again blow into our collective lives, and could begin as soon as the week of the Autumn Equinox when Pluto changes directions.   That week is the official beginning of the Autumn Eclipse Season.

The USA and President Obama have declared war on the Islamic State.    This will cause the already unstable and chaotic Middle East to get even more volatile.  There is no eradicating of an issue that is much deeper than the reality of the Islamic State.

Before long much of our globe will be involved in changing the borders and maps of this world.   In Ukraine/Russia there is a conflict around real estate and  allegiances.   China is now in conflict with the Philippines and Japan and Viet Nam around territories.  Scotland wants to secede from Great Britain.   Hong Kong and Taiwan are in conflict with China around independence issues.  Kashmir continues to be a bone of contention for Pakistan and India.

And there are other places around the globe where old boundaries for states are being challenged.  The most volatile region for changing of allegiances and borders has been the Middle East since the Arab Spring in 2010-11.

And now with Syria, Iraq, and Libya in such flux; and with Israel and Palestine fighting for land, there is no telling how the borders will be redrawn in the Middle East.

Keeping boundaries or letting go of boundaries. keeping the old or opening up to the new- these are themes that will continue in personal lives as well as in the greater world.

This is all part of the transition between ages, as the old paradigm and world are beginning to crumble.   There is a huge new balance of power forming, and old ways will die in the process.

The Powers that Be now, with the media also part of that old paradigm, will create stories that serve their interests and to which they truly have bought into.  And each culture within this old world will have their stories, based on a biased view of what is happening and who is “good” and who is “bad”.

But realize that the deepest and highest of truths are that we are entering a New Age and that the old rules and structures will need to be transformed.  What we rely on for our notions of “reality” are changing also.

And in our personal lives we have been leaving an old sense of what is “normal” for a new sense of normal, which will slowly form through time.  For now we are still adjusting to our own new world.

And even for those who have not had their outer lives change that much this year, there is still a sense for many of not feeling the same sense of “normal” inside themselves.  There is an uneasiness, a not knowing, a sense that big shifts in the greater world will also end up affecting their lives too.

It is best to find ways to ease ego controls and to trust more the Universe and our own deeper souls.   There are deeper realities at work that are bringing new light into our consciousness and souls.

That new light is meant to help us to evolve in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.  It can come through much more gracefully if we are not controlling its movement. Yes of course our egos are blinded by the light and afraid of the changing tides. That is what egos do.

But if there is trust in the bigger picture, the ego can give way enough to let light in while still feeling safe.

There is no force out to destroy you or your life. But there are energies that seek to break down walls of separation, separation from the wisdom of your soul, separation from the Universe, and separation from those who have love and truth to serve you with.

See you next week for the Autumn Equinox and hopefully with a new YouTube presentation for Autumn Eclipse Season.

Healing and Humbling on the Way to Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and Astrology Forecast September 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 6, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week the planetary highlight is  a Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces.   This lunation may bring in the first winds of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014, yet the official beginnings of that eclipse season will not be until the New Moon in Libra on September 23/24.

The Full Moon in Pisces this week is on Monday September 8 at 9:38 PM EDT.   The combination of Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces is usually very gentle and yin-like energetically.   There is a “coming down” into one’s body and soul,  a joining with the wisdom within.  This Full Moon in Pisces has a humility that comes with it, so any need to inflate one’s ego will get little support from the Universe at this time.

Pisces and Virgo have in common well developed sensitivity- Virgo more to the physical world and Pisces more to the emotional soul world.   Virgo wants a purity in the body and so is very sensitive to toxins and environmental stresses. Pisces picks up the moods and emotions of others quite easily and so is very sensitive to toxic emotions.

So it is advised to be aware of one’s body and feelings during the days surrounding this Full Moon.   This is not a time to be manic or even overly excited. It is a time to “check in” and be present to all that may be going on inside your self and around you.

The time of influence for this Full Moon is Saturday and Sunday leading up to the Full Moon, Monday the day of the Full Moon when there will be the greatest intensity of it,  Tuesday as it begins to subside, and Wednesday as its influence passes.

On Wednesday you will begin to feel more “active” energies as the Moon has gone into Aries that day. Be careful before Wednesday not to fall into any depressive attitudes.

To look into the eyes of what feels soulful and sad is OK and natural around this Full Moon, but make sure not to wallow in it or to develop a “story” that is based on old memories or patterns.

Remember also that this Full Moon is a kind of culmination, conclusion or climax from what was begun around the time of the New Moon in Virgo on August 25.

Getting things fixed or putting things in order,  going for checkups and maintenance, and focusing on details and mundane concerns has been a theme of these last couple of weeks of Virgo influence.  And this will stay a theme until the week of September 22 when the Autumn Equinox and Libra New Moon shift our attentions, and we experience the true beginnings of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

This year the Cardinal Grand Cross has brought our human family into a powerful new chapter in our personal and collective lives.  Our sense of what feels normal in our psyche and lives has shifted. The greater world also feels very different now, as we process the events in the Middle East, Ukraine, and elsewhere.

The Cardinal Grand Cross made a very close aspect to the USA natal Sun from July 4 1776, and it planted the planetary seeds of a vast transformation for the USA.

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on October 8 this year forms a Cardinal T-Square with Uranus and Pluto that is close again to the USA Sun and Saturn, bringing more large waves of change and transformation.

The USA is losing its status as Superpower and making its way into a more equitable role in the developing Age of Aquarius, which will form a world of Diversity in Unity.

There is a reworking of the balance of power in the world, and we citizens of the USA and also the Western World in general, are in the beginning stages of developing more collective humility.

It is apparent that a military macho hawkishness is developing in the USA and Western world as a result of the “terrorist” mentality.  There is an attitude that the enemies must be destroyed and that the “vermine” in the world need to be eradicated. Military Orkin needs to kill the dangerous pests that are growing stronger and stronger.

And it is certainly the case with a most ruthless and hateful group like the Islamic State, that a “knee-jerk” reaction is to want to kill them all to protect ourselves and our way of life. And of course we do need to defend ourselves against dangers to our existence. But if we do not get to the root causes of the problem, the same dangers will come back over and over again, each time with greater ferocity.

And just like in your own life when something threatens it with disease or rejection or abandonment or failure, you go deeper to find out why you are being challenged in such a way. Then you need to find meaning to it all, and find out what kind of healing and transformation is needed.

The world that we all have co-created has a foundation that is decaying because of a deficiency of love and truth, fairness and justice, equality and connection.  It is run by a paradigm that is not honoring our Earth and environment, not caring enough for those who have less and suffer, and not recognizing the connections and meaning that the Universe is fueled on.

The rulers of the Old World can only see life through the lens of power and wealth, and thus can only react with military power and an economic system that controls so much of the world.

What has begun to shift our consciousness and world this year will intensify during the Autumn Eclipse Season, especially in late September and October.  Greater changes are on the way.

There is no return to the old chapter of our lives, so we must now adapt to this new world, and of course adaptation is what brings evolution of consciousness.

In your personal life, the new chapter of your life is forming a bit more clearly now, but you are with the baby steps into this new chapter.

Autumn Eclipse Season will soon pick up the pace again, the energy field will intensify more, and we will be thrust more fully into this New World.  It is normal to grieve what will be no more, but it is becoming time to accept the reality of your “new season” and to put more of your heart into making it work and into it being more satisfying.

This week brings the humble and service oriented Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces.  Mars will be finishing up its passionate and intense journey in Scorpio on Saturday the 15th, when it travels into fiery, inspired, joyful, and adventurous Sagittarius.

This week also brings the 13th anniversary of the 9-11 tragedy in the USA and the USA Moon in Aquarius is being aspected by Mars in Scorpio at that time. Israel’s natal chart will also be triggered by Mars in Scorpio this week. Events concerning those two countries is more likely than usual this week, though not at all certain.

See you next week,

Leo

There will be a new YouTube video put our at the end of September for Autumn Eclipse Season 2014
