Honoring the Body of Life and Astrology Forecast April 26- May 2

Relative to the high planetary intensity over the last 6 weeks or so, this coming week should be rather mild. Keep in mind, however, that the Aries New Moon of April 18 was the gateway to coming events connected to all the intensity of early spring. More powerful world events are on the way soon.

Last week, after the Aries New Moon, the dramatic world events were mostly connected to Mother Nature’s upheavals than human caused ones.

There was a volcano that had a huge eruption in Chile that affected the air quality as far away as Argentina.

And there was a 7.8 earthquake in Nepal that has killed over 1500 people so far.

It is not a disconnected coincidence that Earth Day was Wednesday, set in the early days of Sun in Taurus this year.

Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign, and so the volatility of the recent planetary movements has caused breakups of the Fixed Earth energies through volcanos and earthquakes.

We usually talk of the human dramas in relation to the transformational movements of the planets. We have written about the Middle East and China and the world economy for instance, and how we can expect big changes in those areas, changes that are helping to usher in a New Age of Aquarius.

But our relationship to our environment in connection to climate change is also important.

I certainly do not know for sure how much climate change (which is very real) is being exacerbated by human influence and how much it is going to happen with or without human influence.

I do know however that this changing of ages is not happening in a vacuum. The transformation of our world into an Age of Aquarius is happening holistically, on all levels- physically, emotionally, spiritually- to our human family directly and to the Earth home we all live on.

The natural disasters will continue this spring and autumn as a segment of the events that are meant to shake up our world and awaken us to new energies and light that are necessary for ushering in a New Age.

Some believe the Earth is angry at the human family and that natural disasters express that anger.

Others believe that the energetic shifts that are happening during this transitional time on Earth are what cause changes in consciousness, human lifestyles, the environment, and the grids and structures of the Earth.

I believe that our human family needs to conscientiously hold ourselves accountable for what we have been doing wrong; and to take more responsibility for the health and well being of our Earth, its environment and its creatures; and the human condition.

I do not believe, however, in an angry male God or mother Nature that punishes us for our transgressions; but I do believe in Karma (or you reap what you sow). And I do believe in the law of attraction, which simply means that I attract to myself that which resonates with my soul condition, and my beliefs and attitudes.

We are in transition now between worlds, ages, and paradigms. And so it is very important what we now do with our minds, souls, spirits, and bodies.

We are releasing the programming of an old paradigm and age, and letting go of the beliefs, attitudes, and life choices that result from that programming.

As we let go of the old, we open more and more to what we need to become in order to adapt to a changing world.

Adaptation is instrumental in evolution. And now that our human family is so close together through international commerce, mass transportation, and global communication; we need more than ever to evolve.

And now that so many cultures and countries have built or are developing weapons of mass destruction, we need more than ever to evolve.

And now that there is such intolerance and even hatred toward those from different races, genders, sexual orientations, religions, cultures, and lifestyles; we need more than ever to evolve.

And of course the changing of ages demands evolution to consciousness, beliefs, and lifestyles aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into.

We must most importantly learn deep in our hearts, souls, and minds that we are one family of Earth beings. Yes we are each unique, but we share the same human needs and human desires and emotions.  We need to relate to one another as equals with similar needs.

We are taught math, science, and language in school; but do we know how to make relationship with others, how to have empathy, how to understand those from other cultures and ways of being. Have we learned to seeks win-win relationships with others instead of winner take all?

Do we know how to understand that all humans are created equal and deserve to be free. Do we know that there is no need for some to be grossly rich while others starve? Do we know that none deserve privilege because of what family or circumstances they were born into?

Do we know that the Universe has enough love for all to partake in or that truth is available for those who want it. Do we know that fairness and justice is the way of the Universe?

Do we understand we humans block our own way to these Universal riches and that some God is not responsible for our lives, our happiness, our good and bad fortune or the state of the world.

The Age of Aquarius demands that we, through our connection to the spirit and soul of the Universe, are responsible for our selves, each other, the Earth, and our well being?

Do we know there is no one coming to save us or to hold for us the spiritual values that the world and our souls need?

We can each integrate the Christ consciousness of compassion and empathy. We can each integrate the peaceful and meditative heart and wisdom of Buddha consciousness.

“We are the ones we are searching for” and that is the foundation of a healthy Age of Aquarius.

This coming week we continue to ground our lives in the fixed Earth that Sun in Taurus signifies. Taurus knows that our bodies are the temples that hold our souls and spirits and that how we treat that body is so important. It knows that our Earth home and its beautiful nature provide us what we need if we show it the love, respect and attention it deserves.

A healthy body and healthy Earth are the foundation for a healthy life. Our bodies and the Earth body are to be enjoyed also.

Taurus rules the senses, so allow your self to be more present now with the sounds, sights, tastes, feels, and smells all around you.

You are now finding your bearings and sanity from all the recent changes. You are grounding into reality the recent surges of change recently.

Soon new waves of change will roll in, and many new world events are on the way.

But for now find as much peace and comfort as you can. Later on May 3 is a Full Moon in Scorpio, then soon after on May 21 comes the liveliness of Sun in Gemini

And May 18 will also bring the always unpredictable Mercury Retrograde.

Till next week,

Leo

Time to Move Forward and Astrology Forecast April 19-25

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 18, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast on Saturday April 18, we are starting up an important lunar cycle.  That is because there is a New Moon in Aries today at 2:57 PM EDT, a new moon that follows a lunar cycle that included a most intense series of planetary configurations.

The last lunar cycle began with a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on the Spring Equinox, and it was followed two weeks later by a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Libra. That Lunar Eclipse formed a Cardinal T-Square with the powerfully transformational Uranus and Pluto.

Much was shaken up during that lunar cycle, both in the greater world and in our personal lives.  We know that our lives are in the process of enormous change, change that will likely exceed the transformation during the ’60s and ’70s.

And now as we move through the first New Moon since the passing month of such intense planetary movement, we are ready to move forward much more fully into a New Chapter of our lives, on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

Last year at and after the Cardinal Grand Cross in spring and early summer, this new important chapter of our lives was opening up.

And now after this New Moon in Aries, we will soon know in no uncertain terms, that there is no turning back.  We are completing our process of releasing the past and getting ready to face more straight forward into our new lives.

On a global scale, most people I talk with know intuitively that life is on the verge of immense change.

The Military/Economic System that holds up the old world is in the process of breaking down, and as it breaks down it is creating space for new light of new consciousness to stream in.

More and more people are awakening now. And as they do wake up, they become more dissatisfied with their lives, bored with the old patterns that keep repeating, over and over again.

Before long inspiration or well timed events will create the spark of change that helps to leave behind that which we have outgrown.

Who can we take with us in our new lives?  Who is growing as we are?  Who can we no longer relate to?  Who no longer understands us or respects our chosen path?

What has become so stale that it no longer nourishes our heart and soul?  Do we need to live somewhere else?  Do we need to more fully accept and embody who we are becoming?  Do we need to leave behind old work situations or careers even if they give us a feeling of security?

And now at this Aries New Moon, we know we can no longer hold onto that which has no spirit and soul anymore.  We can no longer stay with that which our heart is no longer into.

We want to be alive and filled with purpose.  An Aries New Moon can help you to push forward through resistances, and to start a new beginning.  It is time!

On Monday April 20 the Sun moves into fixed earth sign Taurus.  It is time this month, as winter is truly past, to ground into a more fertile Earth, to become more aware of your body and the physical/sensual side of life.

Home, finances, and land become more important. Being in nature again feels more natural.

And Taurus time of year also encourages us to be more practical with our endeavors and to make manifest and real that which has been previously an idea or dream.

We can move forward with our lives as the Aries New Moon demands, and we can do that with our “feet on the ground” so to speak with the Sun in Taurus.

On a global scale, the stage has been set for more conflict and turmoil.   There are those who are committed to the new deal with Iran being completed. And there are those who do not trust the deal and seek more confrontation.

The Middle East is a tinder box vulnerable to any match that will cause great fires of conflict.  But even within the USA there are those radicals who are very unhappy with the direction the president is moving toward.

They are against the peaceful efforts with Iran and Cuba; they are against any attempts to limit gun rights; they are frankly against a president who does not look and act like all the Anglo-Saxon white men who have exclusively run our government in the past. They are against change into a New World of Diversity in Unity.

Those potential “terrorists” in our country may be even more dangerous to the country than the ones from other countries,  as was Timothy McVeigh in 1995 or even John Wilkes Booth in 1865.

Our economy and lives are on the verge of immense strife.   There is conflict that is growing between those who want to change our world and those who want to keep things as they were in the past.

And of course each of us needs to work that conflict out inside ourselves and in our own lives.

How fast do we want change to happen and how much do we want to keep things as they were.

We may not be able to control that issue in our lives, as the Universe and Nature are driving the bus.

What we can do is to stay present and trust the process.  We can also watch the signs and symbols and synchronicities the Universe shows us.  We can stay centered and as calm as possible as the changes swirl around us.  We can trust ourselves to the right thing at the right time as life unfolds.

Israel is likely getting ready to do something drastic in order to unsettle the likely agreement with Iran.  Yemen, Iraq, and Syria are on the verge of greater calamities.  The economy and stability of Greece and Europe is getting weaker.  All the world is in the process of great transformation, so we can insert new values that are aligned with an Age of Aquarius.

That age is to be founded on the principles of equality, fairness, liberation, freedom, and Diversity within Unity.  We are each unique members of a great family of human. And though we are going through huge growing pains now and often now are bringing out the worst sides of our natures; we are nevertheless in the process of mutating and evolving into people who are adapting to the consciousness and needs of the Age of Aquarius.

Some types will become extinct, but others are becoming the forerunners of a new paradigm, new human, and new age.

Till next week,

Leo

Letting Go of the Shore and Astrology Forecast April 12-18

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week may move slowly at first, as we move into the last quarter Moon in Capricorn Saturday April 11.

The last quarter phase of the moon is by nature a time to wind down, process, integrate and prepare for new beginnings at the New Moon.

This current last quarter phase is especially important as it finishes up the lunar cycle begun at the Spring Equinox/Solar Eclipse New Moon day of March 20.  That lunar cycle then continued into a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on April 4.

That Total Lunar Eclipse included within it Uranus and Pluto and formed a meaningful Cardinal T-square.

So now at this last quarter lunar phase, we put an end to a most powerful and transformational cycle of time.   We need time to process what has been churning in our consciousness and lives this lunar month, so we can be ready for the strong new beginnings later this week.

On Saturday April 18 at 2:57 PM EDT there will be a New Moon in Aries that will thrust us forward “ready or not”. Events will open up in our lives after this New Moon.

New Moons always signify new starts or beginnings and Aries is the perfect sign for new starts, as it is the sign that initiates springtime here in the Northern Hemisphere.

Aries thrusts forward as buds bursting through branches. It is like a baby taking its first steps, like a pioneer exploring new territory, or like an athlete or warrior fighting to survive.

So after a most important early spring, when issues in our consciousnesses and lives have been stirred and awakened, when we have been made more aware of what needs to be released and what needs to change; we are ready to get moving forward with our lives in new ways.

So use the early part of this coming week to work through issues, or to tie up loose ends, to complete, to resolve, to fix or to let go of what needs to be released.

Anything you are still holding onto- even just a little- is a sign you have not fully embraced the change.

This week Thursday April 16 Pluto changes directions from Direct to Retrograde.   That means the energy of Pluto will permeate our energy fields and consciousness.   Pluto, God of the Underworld governs the part of the transformational cycle that intensely brings issues up to the forefront of our consciousness.  It then helps us to release the old fecal matter of our attitudes and beliefs, and then also helps us to be ready for a new birth- from the ashes of the old.

As Pluto changes directions this week, you are more able to confront what needs to be confronted and to finally let go of what needs to be let go of.

For those of you who are clinging to that last bit of something, afraid to let it totally go for whatever reason, you will have help to fully release.

And as you do let go, you will open up the space for something or someone new to arrive.  Yes you may be holding on because you are OK with “the devil you know” more than unknown new territory.

But it is time now for our whole human family to leave the old polluted ponds of our consciousness and lives and to enter new but unknown waters.

In the greater world we are about to experience world conflicts larger than we have experienced in at least decades.   After the New Moon in Aries, we will be more ripe for world events that will be a direct result of what happened earlier this spring during the eclipses and Uranus/Pluto.

The Middle East will be an important catalyst for these conflicts. It is not mere coincidence that during this Spring Eclipse Season Bibi Netanyahu of Israel was re-elected;  there is a new formation for a resolution on Iran’s nuclear program; and a civil war erupted in Yemen, one that also includes the military and political agenda of several other nations.

There is an old world wide paradigm that needs to be let go of, one that encourages separation and disconnection, meaninglessness, and a dog eat dog fight for who wins at others’ expense.

This old paradigm has created weapons of mass destruction, an unfair economic system that encourages greed and despair, relationships based on lack of trust, and lives that often feel empty and alone.

We all too often look for who is better than whom, which then translates into my family or country or religion is better or worse than yours.   And of course faulty egos are built on the judgments of someone being worse or better than someone else.

These programmed judgments keep us beholden to old Gods and testaments that keep us stuck in a world that has in essence already died.

The New Gods of an Age of Aquarius show us equality, liberation, Diversity within Unity, and connections to our authentic individuality and a worldwide web of unity.  Love and Truth are re-membered as our true Universal Mother and Father.

Now as we approach this Aries New Moon we can truly be ready to move forward into new horizons of our life journeys on the way to the Age of Aquarius.  

As you are letting go of old baggage, you will become lighter and more free, more connected to your true soul self and the Universe.

And this New Moon in Aries, as it follows a most important Spring Eclipse Season and the last exact Uranus square Pluto aspect, turns on the ignition and starts driving the vehicles for real change, not just change in our imaginations or minds.

Use Pluto and the last quarter lunar cycle to release your fingernails that are still clinging onto the dock at the shore of your life.  Trust the waters of the Universe and your own innate wisdom to bring you to the right places and people at the right time.  Let go.

This week is a turning point in leaving behind the Groundhog Day repeating patterns and obsessive thoughts of your life.

The Aries New Moon this week shows us the true end of winter in our minds and souls.   We can leave the depression and gloom and open our hearts to the flowers of spring and the winds of change that will set us free.

See you next week,

Leo

Age of Aquarius on the Horizon and Astrology Forecast April 5-11

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 4, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast/blog we are experiencing a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.  It is the second of two eclipses in a row that began on Spring Equinox when there was a Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces.

I wrote back in March 2014 that we were entering a most important 18 month period of time, after which we would be in a greatly changed world on the way to a New Age of Aquarius.

We now have six months to go, which will be met at approximately the time of the next Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on September 27, in Libra Aries.

I also have been relating through my writing of how important the Middle East is concerning the changes of Ages, as it is where the first civilizations and organized religions were birthed.

And this spring, in between the two eclipses there were very important developments in the Middle East:  Militarist Bibi Netanyahu was re-elected Prime Minister of Israel, and the formation of a nuclear deal was drawn up with Iran. Additionally ISIS of Iraq/Syria ignited an attack on Tunisia, and Yemen broke out in civil war.

Imagine my surprise this week when I read that Christian ministers and Jewish rabbis have been predicting that the 18 month period between April 2014 and late September 2015 was related to prophecies of end times occurring in the Middle East, after which a messiah would appear.

As I write this during Easter weekend, when Christ was said to have been crucified and then resurrected, there is this 3rd of 4 so-called Blood Moons, which are Total Lunar Eclipses. The first was in April 2014 when the Cardinal Grand Cross was also appearing.  The last will be on September 27 this year.

These prophecies say the end times would happen when there were 4 Total Lunar Eclipses in a row, with no partial Lunar Eclipses in between, that would coincide with Jewish holidays.

All four of these so called Blood Moons occur on either Passover, which is happening now, or Sukkot as it will be on September 27 at the last of the 4 Blood Moons in a row.

So some Christian and Jewish ministers or scholars say end times and messiahs are approaching, with the Middle East and Israel the focal points.

I say something different about this same time period- that we are speeding up the process of transition between a Pisces Age, which started around the birth of Christ, to an Age of Aquarius, which happens in the 2020’s.

I do not believe in end times but in the changing of Ages; and I do not believe in Messiahs, but I do give credence to the need to turn to Christ-like consciousness on a mass scale in order to transform us beyond the hate filled wars that are knocking at our collective doors, especially in the Middle East.

So now as we experience the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Libra, it is important for each of us to find more peace in our hearts and to find a consciousness that does not place any as better than any others.

The Age of Aquarius demands a world of equality and one of Diversity within Unity.   So acceptance of the differences and values between cultures, ways of life, sexual orientations, races, and religions is essential.

Many in the world now, those with continued consciousness in the old age, are setting up hatreds and battles between peoples.  Battles between Muslims and  Judeo/Christians; Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims; Westerners and Asian peoples; Russians and Westerners; Israelis and Palestinians; Conservatives and Liberals, etc are getting fiercer.

But many others, including a growing number of young people, are developing or have attained a consciousness of inclusiveness and inner peace.

It is a good time, as events on a personal level and a collective level are erupting in our lives, to let go of beliefs, jobs and relationships that keep us locked up in old consciousness.

It is also a good time to work out with others relationship patterns that keep you stuck in the past, keep you stuck in beliefs of loser/winner; superior/inferior; perpetrator/victim; privileged/underprivileged; or wealthy/poor.

This coming week, after the Total Lunar Eclipse on April 4, Jupiter goes Direct on Wednesday April 8.

Jupiter Direct in Leo this week will bring potential inspiration in creative endeavors, hearts that want to burst open with self expression, and desires to work with issues of self worth and self esteem.

It may also bring out the big-ego people, both in personal lives and on the world stage. So watch for those who get filled with themselves and their need to be better than others.

From now until the 18th of April at the Aries New Moon, we will be processing all that has happened from mid March until that New Moon in Aries.

Much has been shaken up, much is stirring in new ways on a very deep level inside; so we will each need some alone time and some time in meditation or contemplation to get our bearings and get centered and directed.

And then after that New Moon in Aries there will be new starts and beginnings, a fast forward movement for many.

Events that are connected to the important planetary happenings since mid march will begin after that Aries New Moon.

There was an exact Uranus/Pluto square on March 16, the last of seven in a row; a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces that occurred on the Spring Equinox; and a Total Lunar Eclipse Cardinal T-Square on April 4 that included Uranus and Pluto.

That is a lot of powerful change moving through our consciousness and lives.  There is a lot of light and truth wanting to awaken us to new ways.

As this light and truth moves through our collective veins of consciousness, it often hits blockages that cause crises.

These crises are catalysts for transformation out of old patterns, behaviors, and beliefs.  They help us release the outworn and connect with our deeper soul.

The connection to deeper soul and our authenticity helps us to surrender and awaken to the waves of light and truth coursing through.

We at the same time connect with the Universe and others who are becoming part of the global movement to a new world and age.

Life on Earth is not ending for our human family and there is no one coming to save us. But as an Age of Aquarius requires, we individuals will take responsibility for our human journey and will help to heal our traumas and disconnections from each other.

In the process we will help to heal our Earth and environment and get our world and human family aligned with the consciousness and ways of an Age of Aquarius.

The process may get ugly sometimes, but we humans are a hearty lot.  We have survived through the evolutionary process many death defying crises.   And now we are ready to mutate again so we will be aligned with the New Age.

Love and Truth are the way forward, as nothing else can light our path during the coming storms.

See you next week,

Leo
