Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon and Astrology Forecast March 29- April 4

The giant portal that has been opening this early spring of 2015 will open more fully this week.  This happens as we approach the second and last eclipse of the season: A Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.

This eclipse is on Saturday April 4 at 8:06 AM EDT.  It falls right in between two Christian holy days: Good Friday and Easter Sunday.  Good Friday is symbolically understood as when Jesus died on the cross; and Easter Sunday when he arose from the dead.

Most of Australia, the Far East, Hawaii and Alaska, Australia, and the west coast of the USA will see most of the eclipse.  The midwest and especially the east coast USA will see very little of the eclipse process.

This Lunar Eclipse will be quite powerful as it includes the Uranus/Pluto square.  Uranus will be conjunct the Sun in Aries and opposite the Moon, while Pluto will square both the Sun and Moon.  This is happening just after the March 16 exact square of Uranus and Pluto, their last such meeting of 7 passes- which started in 2012.

This Total Eclipse forms a Cardinal T-Square formation with Uranus and Pluto, a formation which is almost as powerful as last year’s Cardinal Grand Cross.

As was true with the Cardinal Grand Cross last year, this T-square formed with Uranus and Pluto will make close aspect with the USA natal chart of July 4, 1776. The USA Sun and especially Saturn are being aspected again.

So that means this Lunar Eclipse formation will symbolize the huge transformation the USA is going through over the 18 months from April 2014 to October 2015. Events surrounding this eclipse may feel fated.

You can expect much change in the world and especially the USA now and for the next 6 months and beyond.

It is no mere coincidence that the Middle East and North Africa are bringing us so many important events now, like the Israeli election, the nuclear Iran talks coming to a climax, and the bombings and turmoil in Yemen.

The balance of power in the world has been shifting, and now as we come through this portal opening this spring, there will be a spike in the speed of this transformation.

The natal charts of Israel, Iran, and Syria are also being touched off this spring 2015, so we can expect much more turmoil and conflict to erupt in the Middle East in order to assist the process of breaking down the barriers that hold back the light that is wanting to burst through.

The Old World’s paradigm is held very strongly in the Middle East, so much needs to be broken down so healing and transformation have a chance there.

It is the Military/Economic complex that runs so much of our world, so we can over the next several months expect breakdowns of the economic and military structures that hold up the old world and its paradigm.

Chaos will certainly become more prevalent during the transformation, but so also will bullying attempts to keep the old order intact.

This Aries/Libra lunation signifies a split between conflict (Aries) and peace (Libra); doing it how I see fit (Aries) and giving in to what others want (Libra); courage to stand up for myself (Aries) or doing what is best for the relationship (Libra).

You will see these themes play out in the world and in personal lives.

In any healthy relationship both Aries and Libra needs are met.  Aries is ruled by Mars and Libra ruled by Venus, so male and female need to be integrated as well.

In a healthy relationship there is a balance between independence and togetherness. If there is too much independence there is little intimacy and togetherness. If there is too much togetherness there is greater chance for co-dependence and losing one’s true self.

Remember that this Total Lunar Eclipse is a Full Moon, but it is Full Moon with much more energy. Many of you really feel Full Moon’s and are greatly affected by them, as are hospitals, police stations and the ocean’s tides.

So expect even greater shakeup than the usual Full Moon, as we get closer and closer to the actual event on Saturday April 4 at 8:06 AM EDT.

Relationships are most affected now, whether those are romantic or family or friend or between countries.

Though there may be more conflict or reopening of old wounds, there is also more opportunity for breakthroughs, for healings, for improving or transforming old patterns that have kept you stuck in unsatisfying relationship dynamics.

it is a good time to talk things through, to empower yourself and speak your mind.  But it is also a good time to truly listen, to put yourself in the other person’s shoes so you can better understand their position.

Also watch closely as the nuclear talks with Iran take shape this week.  How these talks evolve will be so important for the Middle East and actually the whole world as a result.   There are Shia/Sunni conflicts getting more deadly; Muslim/Judeo Christian divisions; Israeli/Palestinian disagreements; western world/Russian and Chinese differences that the Middle East rests upon.

And all of these are essential ingredients in the makeup of the Diversity within Unity Aquarian Age we are moving into.

Eventually we will need for there to be a sense of oneness, of one human family with many different members trying to find agreement.

And just like in a healthy family, though there is disagreement and sometimes even horrendous fights,  there is no disowning or making an enemy of a family member.

Once we understand we are all in this together, then we will let go of weapons of mass destruction and demonizing of other religions, cultures, races, or nations.

We have a long way to go.

And in relation to our Aries/Libra Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, there is need to not demonize men or women, to make one the good guys and the other the bad guys.

All opposites are meant to be a part of wholeness and unity, just as the Yin/Yang symbol shows opposites within a circle of unity- differences that complement one another not destroy one another.

Remember that whomever you have been brought together with in relationship is for the purpose of learning more about your self and your self in relationship- no demonizing is appropriate.  If someone is abusing you or treating you badly, you may be learning to empower your self or build better boundaries.  Deciding whether to let the person go or to work out your common issues together- is on a deeper level symbolic of your evolution as a human in relationships.

See you next week,

So Shall it Be and Astrology Forecast March 22-28

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 21, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have passed through the first part of Spring Eclipse Season 2015, as an important portal into the new world has been opening.

But I know for many of us it felt more like the old world was alive and well,  with fear and nasty behavior stronger than ever.

Five different people this past week asked me something similar.  The words may not have been exactly the same, but in essence they questioned the same thing.  They did not understand how people could be so mean or selfish or cold or rude, etc.

There was a lot of negative energy released this past week with the aspects of Uranus/Pluto and the Solar Eclipse.

In Israel the worst case scenario played out: Bibi Netanyahu’s Likud party was the winner of the vote, and almost for sure he will maintain his position as leader of Israel.  And as the election was still playing out on Election Day, he complained out loud about the droves of Arabs going to the polls.  And he stated that with his win the two state solution with the Palestinians was dead.

That in effect would mean that the peace process would end, and that the apartheid style of domination of Palestinians would get even worse.

Yes he took those statements back after he won, but of course he had to in order to try to retain support from America and the International community.

But these events in Israel promise much more conflict, turmoil and war in the Middle East, not a very graceful entry into the Age of Aquarius.

And if the nuclear talks with Iran do not bring some kind of framework resolution over the next 10 days or so, we can expect tremendous chaos before long in the Middle East.

This past week also brought two devastating attacks by ISIS, one killing almost 20 tourists in Tunisia and another one killing over a hundred people in Yemen.

And in Frankfurt Germany this past week there were protests that turned into huge riots over banks and the economy.

And now we are in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the aforementioned Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces.   And true to Pisces there is an emotional outpouring and more chaotic feelings that are not easy to find a center within.

We are being taken out of our usual default positions inside ourselves and in our lives, so that we may be more able to let in the changes.  With Pisces there is a need to surrender control and trust the process of the Universe.

Yes some ugly energies have been released this past week, but we as individual humans can choose trust and love, or fear and anger.

What has been released is part of the process to get us where we need to go. If on a personal level in your own life this past week you experienced or expressed “negative” emotions, do your best not to judge or jump to conclusions too fast.

The “demons”, so to speak, were waiting at the entry of the opening portal.  They have been released into our collective consciousness.

Now it is time to “regroup” and reintegrate, to come back to our inner core and center.  There are more challenging winds of change ahead, and it is imperative we each keep a spiritual perspective and be true to our best human values.

I have been letting people know for a long time now that the Middle East would likely implode as part of the journey to an Age of Aquarius.  It is the part of the Earth that birthed many of our original civilizations and organized religions, and as such would show us what has gone wrong and what needs to be changed.

Planetarily speaking, we move now toward the second eclipse this Spring Eclipse Season 2015:  A Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.   This Eclipse will have Uranus and Pluto in its signature, as Uranus will be conjunct the Sun in Aries and opposite the Moon in Libra; and Pluto in Capricorn will be square the Sun and Moon.  This will happen on April 4.

Since Uranus and Pluto will still be close be being exactly square (since they were exact on March 16), it will be another powerful Eclipse event.  We will discuss that more at our next Perspectives column next week.

And keep in mind that after the last of two eclipses this spring, we will continue to have more changes and dramatic events.

Whatever swirls through our lives during this portal opening now, which continues through the Lunar Eclipse on April 4, will tend to activate events at and after the New Moon in Aries on April 18.

In your personal life and soul journey, there may be more emotional and spiritual processing to go through over the next couple of weeks.  More “negativity” may be released as the positive light rays of this opening portal meet the energies that block out this light.  As those blocks are cracked open, they are more able to be released.

So do not hold onto the fear or anger or jealousy, etc.. Do not stop to judge your self for feeling or expressing them. Instead release them, and release those people or situations or attitudes or beliefs or stuck old patterns that have held them for you.

As you release, you open your vessel to the light frequencies, and in the process bring back trust and hope and more love and wisdom.

You do not deserve to stay stuck or in pain or trapped in your mind or life.  There is nothing you have done that cannot be atoned for, cannot be healed, cannot be resolved sufficiently.  Beating yourself up tells the Universe you are not ready for moving on from the past.

You will be given the opportunity during this Pisces Eclipse Lunar Cycle, which lasts until April 18, to face your old ghosts and demons and release them as part of your transformational process.

Are there people in your life or thoughts in your head that mirror back to you the old negative self image you keep holding onto.  Let it go now so you can be ready to move forward after the Aries New Moon on April 18.

And in our greater world, much will similarly swirl around during this portal opening.  The old fear based ways will continue to rear their ugly heads as they did at the Israeli elections this past week.

The global economy, governmental and military/police controls are in the process of huge transformation.  Those old ways hold up the old world and its corruption, its needs to perpetuate patterns of domination and control and unhealthy self interest.  It needs to be changed and the coming events will ultimately help in that process.

So many of you have moved far away from being pulled into the games that perpetuate that old world.  You no longer can be motivated by the fear it uses to run the old world.  You do not need to play its games, the games that lack heart and soul and trust in nature and the Universe and the human spirit.

But perhaps there are still parts of you that are still influenced and fear the hand of an old judgemental God who will smite you or send you to hell.

If so, now you will have opportunity to release these fears and symbolically send them out to a black hole in the Universe.   Take the next step and tell the Universe you are ready to trust like a child again. You can send that message by releasing that which keeps you chained to your fears, your victimization, and your resentments.

All happens for a reason, even your worst and most horrific events from your past are stepping stones to your self actualization, to your purpose for being here.

See it that way and then so shall it be.

Spring Portal and Eclipse Season 2015 and Astrology Forecast March 15-21

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast on March 14, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week the Spring Portal and Spring Eclipse Season 2015 opens widely.

On March 16 Uranus makes exact square to Pluto for the 7th and last time.  Their first meet was in June 2012.   The breadth of their influence from the square is pretty much from 2010- 2017.   After that whatever they have brought to our human family in its evolution into the Age of Aquarius will begin to settle into our consciousness and lives.

What has been happening with Uranus square Pluto is an extension from the conjunction in 1965-66.   That conjunction started a new cycle for Uranus/Pluto, and that new beginning brought on the ’60s revolution.  That ’60s period was when the song “The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius” came out, and many sensed exactly that with all the changes that were swirling through lives.

And now we are even further along in that movement into the Age of Aquarius.  And the Uranus square Pluto aspect has been triggering events in both our personal and collective lives, so we may change our consciousness and lives in accordance with the Age’s frequencies.

This Spring Portal and Eclipse Season 2015 brings in stronger waves of change and greater awakening to the New Age. Strong light rays and beams of truth want to storm in, but of course there are blocks in our individual and collective consciousness that hold back the tide.

Those blocks collide with the new energies and can cause much turmoil in both individual and collective lives. The more you can let go of the old paradigm and outdated ways inside your self, the more easy your transition will be.

Of course that is more easily said than done, as change is not easy for most of us.  We tend to resist even when the change will be good for us.  What is familiar, even if painful or boring, acts like a security blanket for many.

Sometimes all we truly need to do, however, is to be open and flexible in our minds and hearts.  What we have previously believed to be right is not right anymore.

People used to think that the world was flat and that everything, planets and all, revolved around the Earth.

Televisions, radios, computers and airplanes were not even in our imaginations long ago.

Life changes as seasons change, and if we hold on too tightly to what used to be, we cause our selves great stress and disease, and miss the opportunities to learn, to grow, and to evolve.

And now we are in a new season of life on Earth, and this Spring Portal is accelerating our movement more fully into it.

After the Uranus/Pluto square on the 16th, later this week there is a most powerful Spring Equinox.  On the Spring Equinox day of Friday March 20 there is also a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces.

That is a most unusual combination and promises a very change-full and powerful Spring 2015 season ahead.

If you are in the process of change already, the speed will pick up.  If you know change is needed but you have been putting it off, you can expect life to push you forward.

Holding on will now work well, so it is best to ride the tide. Do not expect the changes to be exactly on March 20. Consider that the center of the change and a time when the intensity is greatest.   But the actual events can happen any time this spring.

Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East are in the path of this eclipse.  So big events are more likely to erupt in those regions this spring.

Since the Solar Eclipse is in Pisces, the best strategy is to surrender to the energies and change.   Life may seem more difficult to comprehend and attempts to figure things out intellectually may not be as successful as usual.

Even though this is a New Moon Solar Eclipse, which by its nature promises new beginnings; at the same time the Pisces influence may bring us to ghosts of the past, and show us a rewind of old ways or events.

The opportunity, however, for consciousness shifts within that process is great.   You can dive deeper into the “soul” of people or life and experience more emotion and feeling.

Chaotic energies are more likely to erupt, and that chaos makes creativity more alive, and opens avenues that allow for change to happen.

When energies are controlled, change is held back.  When those controls are broken down, it may feel like chaos, yet what is really happening is an opening of the passages for change.

Much that will happen this week will be setting the table for even bigger events after April 18 at the next new moon, an Aries New Moon.

And in between is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra on April 4.

For this week, as the Spring Portal opens, there are events that are unfolding in the Middle East which we have explained before are most instrumental in our worldwide transformation and evolution into the Age of Aquarius.

On March 17,  just before the Spring Equinox Solar Eclipse, there is an important election in Israel that will show the way to who governs there. Will Netanyahu be reelected?  If so, war is more likely in that region.

On March 24 there is a deadline on forming a resolution about the nuclear program in Iran.  If that is passed or delayed peace is more likely.  If there is no agreement or much hope for one, then war is more likely.

An Age of Aquarius will have greater equality for all nations and cultures of the world, and that age will have Diversity within Unity as a way of being all over the world.  Do we need more conflict and pain before we get it? Or can our transition be more graceful?

Can we let go of needs for tragic power struggles that threaten us all since weapons of mass destruction are so prevalent in this world?  Or do we need to continue to learn the hard way, a learning experience that threatens all our lives?

Can we transform our economic structure so it serves all the people of the world? Or do we cling to a system that now shows 1% of the world populace owning 50% of the world’s wealth?

Change can very well happen in the form of stock market crashes and economic upheaval.  And this can happen soon.

I mentioned last March, just before the Cardinal Grand Cross, that the next 18 months would bring great world change.  We are now 6-8 months from that time period ending.

Empires, which began with at the beginning of the Pisces Age in Rome over 2000 years ago, are coming to an end. The American/Western Civilization Empire dominating our world now is coming to an end.

How that process unfolds is not totally known, but we must all be ready for changes in our lives in accordance with that change.

That does not mean we have dismal lives ahead.  This age brought an end to Rome, Ottoman Empire, British Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire, Soviet Union, etc.

All those peoples have survived their transformation and so shall we.

But in order to facilitate an Age of Diversity within Unity, of equality in value for all peoples and ways of life;  there must be an end to Empires and Superpowers, and on a deeper level the notion that some are better and deserve more.

In your personal life the changes are so you can let go of the old skins of a life that fits you no more: of relationships and jobs and homes that are no longer reflective of who you are, or reflective of the life you are moving into- naturally.

Remember that the movement of the planets is reflective of Nature, its cycles and seasons.  And though humans can certainly affect the movements of “Nature”, in the end Nature rules, not our attempts to control.  We can destroy ourselves, but not Nature’s cycles and seasons, energies and lifeblood.

We are moving into an important phase of the passage into an Age of Aquarius:  Spring Portal and Eclipse Season 2015.

This week brings a storm of intensity that seeks to clear the passages to allow for greater transformation.

I have created a new YouTube presentation for the Spring Portal.
