Seeing Clearly as Mercury goes Direct and Astrology Forecast October 26- November 1

Though we just passed through the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on Thursday, which is the last eclipse of this eclipse season, we will remain in the throes of the intensity for some time longer.

Since the next exact meeting of Uranus square Pluto is not until December 15, we can expect Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 to extend through to the Winter Solstice, a longer than usual Eclipse Season.

There is a turning point in the process now, however, as Mercury is going Direct pretty much as I write this forecast, on Saturday October 25 at 3:17 PM EDT.

So as the Scorpio Solar Eclipse has just passed, and Mercury goes Direct today, truth is an unavoidable reality.

Scorpio plows right down into the core of truth, the deeper truth that can free us from our chains of egoic control.

And Mercury now going Direct after 3+ weeks of being Retrograde, gives us the beginning of finding the light of clarity at the end of the dark tunnel of unknowing.

It may take a few more days to a week before we are totally confident we are seeing and thinking clearly, and before we can truly accept on a deeper level the truth that has revealed itself.

This year, since the Cardinal Grand Cross of spring, we have been thrust into an important new chapter or phase of our lives.  Events, awakenings, and realizations have shown us a dying past, closed doors of that which is not aligned with our authentic soul self, and open doors and windows bringing the fresh air of new ways forward.

And this current Autumn Eclipse Season, while Mercury has been retrograde, has forced us to look deeper for truth in order to find clear direction forward.

And what matters is what is on our true soul path, a path that is aligned with the connections showing Oneness, while at the same time the truth of who we each really are in essence, with no more lying and trying to be what we are not.

This turning point now to more clarity and truth is a difficult one for some, as there has been an avoidance of letting go of that which they have been holding onto so strongly.

Life support systems onto co-dependent relationships or empty security structures will no longer work in our hearts or lives anymore.

But this is no time to rush forward or be impulsive with our actions.  We can spend a bit more time processing before we know for sure, and when we do act and make decision, we can do that in a thoughtful and deliberative way now.

Mars moves out of fiery and expansive Sagittarius this Sunday October 26 and into grounded and real Capricorn, where it will stay until December 4.  This will help us to face and make real and to manifest that which was previously merely an idea or inspiration.  There is no more running away. It is time soon to do what needs to be done.

So this coming week may bring more clarity and direction, but for some also a more sobering look at one’s life issues.

And on Friday October 31 is Samhain, the ancient predecessor and inspiration for Halloween. It is a sacred turning point that is approximately half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.

And our more deeply “tuned in” ancestors experienced the fact that the veil between worlds is thinner around Samhain.   You may hear or “see” spirits.  You may catch glimpses of spirits out of the corner of your eye now.

And if you do ritual to honor ancestors, you may be able to contact those who have left their material bodies.

Then on November 1, also known as All Saints Day in Catholicism, we get ready to turn back our clocks.  We will then experience shorter days of being awake while it is light outside.  And temperatures are getting colder.

This prompts us to look within more, as the outside is not so appealing for many.  Christ said that “The Kingdom is Within” and so  now we can move more in that direction, the direction of the “unknown” and mysterious, but also the direction of soul unity and connectedness.

And as we recognize the inner kingdom and experience the love at the heart of that kingdom, we know that whatever events are erupting in the greater world can be seen and felt through the frequency of connectedness.

Yes this last week, as there was a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, brought us many very dark events:  A “terrorist” attack in the Canadian Parliament.  Another violent attack in a high school just outside Seattle, an ax attack on police in New York, serious riots in Jerusalem, and a killing of police in northern California.

Add these to the Ebola scare, Islamic State, a volatile stock market, etc. and it would be easy to get into fear zone.

Scorpio brings up the shadows in individuals and in society, so we can then deal with our demons, release toxic energies and patterns, and look for ways to transform our lives.

In the greater world, we are having lights shine on our shadow demons, on our mistakes, on our karma.

The Islamic State is not mainly about religion, but about power and about old grudges and injustices from the past.

The killing sprees in schools and other mainstream venues show us what needs to be addressed in our society.  Issues of guns, mental health, and of a general decay in society need to be addressed more seriously. These cannot be solved by people who are wanting to satisfy political agendas, but by people who want to end old patterns that destroy our human family and Earth and its creatures.

We are living out a paradigm of separateness and “every man for himself”, of his family or country or religion.  Evolution now is dependent on seeing me and mine more inclusively.  My family is all of humanity.  That consciousness of oneness is mandatory if we are to evolve our consciousness into an Age of Aquarius.

Though this movement into an Age of Aquarius is part of the natural cycles of Nature and the Universe; nevertheless we choose what that means for our human family here on Earth.   Do we as a collective transform our consciousness and lives into one of seeing all as equal and developing a Diversity in Unity world with Love and Truth as our foundation to build on? Or not?

We are at a crossroads now, over the next year or longer.  Events will take us more to “the edge” so we can know deep in our souls the reality we are facing, the consciousness we need to attain, the lives we need to live.

And our next spike of intensity will be early to mid November, as Mars in Capricorn triggers the Uranus/Pluto square. That square will be exact again on December 14/15, just days before Winter Solstice.

As you get more clarity now and over the next few days after Mercury Direct, commit your self more deeply to your spiritual path and your personal evolution.  We are All in this together, whether we acknowledge it or not.

See you next week,

Leo

Powerful Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio with Mercury Direct and Astrology Forecast October 19-25

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we will be moving through an important turning point time period.  On Thursday October 23 is the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio, and on Saturday October 25 Mercury will go back Direct.

At the same time, here in the Northern Hemisphere of Planet Earth the “Sun has been setting” for the year as we approach the mid point of Autumn.   Darker colder days are on the way.

This so far has been a most transformational year on our way to the Age of Aquarius.

The Cardinal Grand Cross and Spring Eclipse Season brought huge waves of change, as they included the powerful Uranus square Pluto formation.  Of course we have written many times about how when Uranus made conjunction with Pluto in the mid ’60s it signified the beginning of the ’60s revolution, a time of great change when the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius was first being recognized.

And now since 2012, Uranus and Pluto have been experiencing their first major meet-up since the ’60s.   This Uranus/Pluto square has two more exact encounters:  December 2014 and March 2015.

 

And by Autumn of 2015 we should be deeply in the center of a magically swirling storm of transformation.

Already this year we have been witnessing the beginning of breakdowns of our old world, its rules and boundaries, its structures and institutions, its very paradigm for human living. We are at the same time experiencing breakthroughs into a new paradigm of consciousness for the human family.

More breakdown of old security structures will continue over the next year of so, as well as breakthroughs into new dimensions of consciousness, and of course surprise events that change our outlook and paradigm.

In the greater world since the Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year, we have witnessed Russia helping to break down the old boundaries of Ukraine and at the same time putting up new boundaries and potential confrontation with the Western World and USA.  We have also been experiencing the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, a militant force that is reshaping the boundaries of the Middle East and threatening to dramatically and ruthlessly disrupt and confront the current security structures of the world.  Israel and Hams engaged in a very brutal war in the Middle East as well, and in the process many people died and lost their homes, mostly in the Palestinian Gaza enclave.

And the Ebola virus is expanding rapidly and threatening to be a major problem in our world. This is a life threatening virus that will cause travel and economic well being to be challenged as a result.

And the world economy showed signs of great weakness this last week, as stock markets around the world took a big downward turn.

These events are not just passing dramas on the screens of our life views.   These events are catalysts for great transformational world changes.

How we react to these challenges will greatly influence our entry into the Age of Aquarius.   Will we give into fear and hatred, to feelings of separation for one another, to a belief we live in a meaningless world that requires us to take care only of ourselves and our kind. Do we believe we can build a unified world of Diversity in Unity, respecting the differences between us?

Bill Maher has expressed many things through the years that I have resonated with and respected. But now on his HBO Friday night show he is painting with a broad brush the idea that the religion of Islam is inherently bad.   He is not just against ISIS or Al Queda or other radical militant groups, but instead is indicting a whole culture of people that number over a billion.

Since he is respected by many usually peaceful liberals, he is leading a most dangerous charge against a large segment of our world population.  This is the path of the old world: separate and divide, demonize and bring about devastating hate, wars, and destruction.

There are culture wars building up steams of hatred, but you and I do not not need to be swept up by this toxic cyclone of negativity.

At times like this when Eclipses are erupting and Uranus and Pluto are doing an intense dance of transformation and potential healing, we can each instead let go and release attitudes and beliefs, dysfunctional and toxic patterns that separate us from our authentic selves, each other, and the Universe.

Yes indeed we need to be discerning and protective of our lives and loved ones.  But we do not need to let fear and then hate dictate how we believe or how we will react to our life challenges or our world.

This next eclipse, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio will be this coming Thursday October 23 at 5:57 PM EDT.  New Moons represent new beginnings, a Solar Eclipse is many times stronger than the usual New Moon.  And it being in Scorpio adds even more intensity to the occasion.

Scorpio can be like a roto-rooter that goes right to the core, and brings up whatever has been in hiding or repressed.  And usually that means that the darker feelings like resentment, jealousy, rage, etc.- those emotions not usually accepted by our culture to feel or express- are the ones that will erupt.

These passionate and often primal emotions put “everything on the table” so we can work issues out from our souls not just our heads. This process tends to promote a catharsis and potentially a deep healing.   It can also, especially if the emotions have been held in for a long time, bring up an explosion that burns bridges of connection and puts an end to relationships.

In the greater world conflicts will likely intensify, and new ones may begin, especially those affecting Israel or Iran, Syria or Iraq.  But these conflicts can erupt anywhere now, and with ISIS and Ebola and a downward trend for the economy, it will be so easy to give into fear and desperation.

Our human family has always had to face difficult times, and in fact our ancestors faced severe challenges without the comforts and electronics we now possess.    These challenges are coming now so we can, at this crossroads time for humanity, decide who we are, what we truly believe in, and what kind of new world we want to build.

You are not powerless in the face of these challenges.  You are always in charge of your attitudes and beliefs, and how you react to situations.  And then how you believe and how you react has a direct influence on what you will then attract into your life.

Two people can face the same type of difficult challenge in their lives, like a relationship breakup, for instance.  One person then decides to never trust love again or to develop an attitude toward women or men.  They stop believing in God or spirit anymore because their life did not turn out the way their ego wanted.

Another person eventually sees the breakup as meaningful, as they see how the two people were not right for each other any more, they learn lessons around how to relate better or how to choose differently, and they before too long attract a person who is better suited to the authentic person they have become more true to.

It is your choice now also to believe we are moving through a transition time on the way to a new Age of Aquarius, one of greater equality, run more on love and truth, and bringing us a world of Diversity in Unity. You know the transition will not be easy, but you have faith you will attract to your self what and who you need to continue your soul’s journey into the meaningful, sacred and authentic life you have committed to.

Whatever comes to you this week will end up helping you to release what patterns and beliefs no longer serve your soul’s growth and evolution.  You will open your heart more to trust your self and the Universe to bring you through the doors you need to walk through now on the path of greater love and truth and higher meaning.

And as Mercury goes direct next Saturday October 25 at 3:17 PM EDT, the airwaves of mind will begin to clear up, so you can then come to some conclusions and make some decisions.

In the meantime before the New Moon Solar Eclipse and Mercury Direct this week, trust the process, continue to look at the possibilities, and resist the desire to jump to conclusions, be impulsive or make rash decisions.

We are truly in a new chapter of our collective human lives on Earth, on the way to an Age of Aquarius.   Keep on your soul path of Love, Light, and Truth, no matter what. This is within your power.

See you next week,

Leo

In the Middle of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and Astrology Forecast October 12-18.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 11, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

I am leaving Italy today and feeling  very fulfilled from this 17 day trip to Europe.   As this voyage happened during Autumn Eclipse Season, with Mercury Retrograde,  there has been a significant shift in consciousness and a re-connection with my ancestral lineage in Italy.   Since the transformation of our global family will include big shifts in the power dynamics of the world, Western Civilization is feeling it’s effects.

Seeing the ancient buildings and long-time local traditions has brought a new awareness to my consciousness, as my American consciousness only knows 238 years of existence. Seeing alleys in Italy that have been used since before Christ helps me to know that people’s in the world value their heritage and take pride in their past and so love their land and culture.

The coming changes will not be  easy.  Many European countries are dealing with immigration from Africa and the Middle East, and trying to fit these very different cultures into their very ingrained traditional ways.   And China, Russia, India, Brazil and other countries are getting stronger and stronger.  And new global boundaries are being redrawn in the Middle East and elsewhere to shift our world into a New Age.

These lands I have been visiting are so beautiful and filled with such rich culture, and the future will have them learning to balance that rich culture with the tides of change into an Age of Aquarius.  And those tides are increasing their strength now during the Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

This last week the markets have been showing weakness, and this is only the beginning of the transformation of our global economy.   Here in Europe, and I know elsewhere, many local economies are very dependent on tourism, as so much money is spent in stores and  restaurants by tourists.  It feels much like consumption by gluttony at times and shopping seems to be a very high priority  for travelers.

As the markets dim and travelers’fear of terrorism and Ebola rises, money will stop flowing from tourism and local life in many communities will change dramatically.

We must all prepare our selves for radical change that will reconnect us to soulful human values.

All the personal and world events that have been swirling through our lives since the Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year are setting the tables for more and greater transformation for our world and personal lives.

We have entered an important new chapter in our lives now, on the way to an Age of Aquarius.  This Autumn Eclipse Season will be followed by a Spring Eclipse Season 2015.

These two seasons will bring big shifts to our world, and most especially to the child of Europe, America.

That is because the USA natal chart from July 4 1776 is being powerfully affected by these recent Eclipse Season.

While many are complaining about the lack of power shown by the USA in world events now, in the bigger picture the USA is beginning to join the world community in a whole new way, as more of an equal in a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius.

We are now smack dab in the middle of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014, between two eclipses and moving into the second half of this current Mercury Retrograde cycle.

On Wednesday the 15th this coming week, there will be a 4th quarter moon phase beginning with the Moon in Cancer.

It is time that day to get into one’s inner cave and to process the last few weeks.   We are preparing for a strong Eclipse on October 23, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in passionate and intense Scorpio.

It will be time for new beginnings, and the inner depths of our collective beings will be ignited and brought more to the surface.  Secrets, previously restrained emotions and memories will seek to be expressed and seen.

It will be time to speak one’s truth and let the process play itself out after that.  Mercury will stay Retrograde till the 25th, so till then let your mind and soul process the recent shifts before coming to conclusions or making big decisions.

Next week when I am back we will look more deeply at Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and it’s influence on our lives.
