Moving Through the Fog and Astrology Forecast May 31- June 6

During this Mercury Retrograde time period, which will last until June 11,  there has been the usual mental mistakes, spacing out mentally, memories of the past, electronic glitches, and general mental confusion.  And I know many I talk with can’t wait for Mercury to go back Direct.

Sometimes Mercury Retrograde feels like a trip to the Twilight Zone, the old TV show.   And this time many are having eerie feelings at times.

What is happening? It seems there is a big letting go happening, a letting go of the past.   There is a feeling that great changes are on the way, changes that will shake up our world and push us fast forward into new lives.

Have you been feeling that way too?   Maybe this feeling is just Mercury being its trickster self, and after it goes back Direct again this foreboding sense will go away.

But yet I do know that big change is on the way to our world, change that may bring chaos on the one hand- yet hope for a better day on the other hand.

As you release that which has had its day already from your psyche and life, you opening the door to more healthy physical, mental, emotional and spiritual ways for your life.

That which has lost its lustre in your heart will have a difficult time staying with you now. If it is a person who is leaving or has left your heart or life, there will be grief and sadness.

But before too long there will also be a feeling of heart opening for more love in your life and what is better than love?  Some would choose security and contentment over love.  Would you?

And being in love is not only for a person, but can be for a place or nature or career calling, etc.

I believe the biggest reason for depression is because love is lacking in one’s life.  And often love is lacking because one has been burned badly by love: abandoned, betrayed, or rejected. And that has caused one to close one’s heart and to stop trusting in love.

Now as life is on the verge of great transformative change, we will be tested to open our hearts more to love even if it means we will lose some convenience or comfort.

This coming week, as Mercury goes into its last full week of being Retrograde, energies will rise as we move through a Full Moon.

The exact Full Moon will be on Tuesday June 2 at 12:19 PM EDT.  This full moon will be in Sagittarius, which means the Sun will be in Gemini opposing the Moon in Sagittarius.  As the Sun sets the Moon will be rising.

This Sagittarius Full Moon is usually quite lively, especially for conversation.    Taking in and delivering information (Gemini) is balanced by needs to sort through and find solution or judgment or meaning (Sagittarius) to all that information.

Keep in mind that Mercury Retrograde may make that process more fuzzy and may bring results that can change after Mercury goes back Direct again.

Also on Tuesday June 2nd Mars in Gemini makes a minor but still potentially powerful aspect with Pluto in Capricorn.  That will trigger the Uranus/Pluto square again, and promises potent events swirling around the days before, during and after the Full Moon this week.

Be careful not to act too quickly on what comes up for you this week.  Do no leap before you look closely.  And it is recommended that you wait until after Mercury goes back Direct on June 11 before you make any major decisions or changes in your life direction.  And in fact it would be best if possible to wait a few days to a week before big moves, as total clarity may wait that long to appear.

Sun square Neptune on Sunday the 31st may be adding to the confusion also this week, as Neptune can take us into foggy waters of soul.

Of course you can trust your heart now, but the heart’s advisor is the head; and it is in Mercury trickster time now.  Of course you know head and heart agreeing finds the ultimate truth, not either one alone.  But sometimes there needs to be a choice as they cannot agree.

But now with Mercury Retrograde it is best to wait for the Mind to come back into Direct atttunement, so you can do your heart/head balancing act in the most healthy manner possible.

The next major thrust forward will be on June 16 at the New Moon in Gemini.  All systems will be ready to go shortly after that.

Then Summer Solstice on June 21 is a good marking point for our life changing seasons in more ways than just nature.

Bigger world events will erupt this summer.

Iran and world powers are supposed to finalize their nuclear agreement on June 30.  As we suspected, the sense of surety that it was a done deal was reversed during Mercury Retrograde and now serious doubts are in play.

The Islamic State made serious gains in Iraq and Syria this passing spring, and the Middle East is on the verge of major chaos and conflict.

China is sabre rattling with the USA over islands near China’s border, and Russia is falling further and further away from the western world.  In fact Russia and China have made pacts recently for more unity between them.

There is a Jade Helm military exercise scheduled for June 15- July 15 in the southwest states of the USA. This extensive military exercise does not have a truly transparent purpose.  Is it for domestic purposes to put down domestic “terrorism” or race riots? Or is it training for possible foreign conflicts?

And the world economy is teetering more in its voyage to powerful transformation.  Watch closely what happens in Greece and at the efforts to shift the world currency away from the USA dollar.  The stock market is poised for a major downfall before too long..

And strong earthquakes and other powerful eruptions in nature are very likely this late spring and summer.

The energies and light from the Age of Aquarius are bursting at the seams of the old world’s walls of control.   If you go inside your deeper psyche you will be able to contact these new energies. Watch your dreams and your waking recognition of the Universe’s messages through signs and symbols, and through synchronicity.

The changes in your energy field and life are meant to help your heart, soul, and mind to be open and alive. They are meant to help you clear blocks in your body and chakra system that are ready to be released.

The Age of Aquarius contains new energy systems, new belief systems, new structures, new consciousness, and new lifestyles. Many are already apparent and many of you have already been awakened to some degree or another.

But more openings are still on the way so we can evolve in alignment with our new world.

till next week,

Leo

Changing Direction and Astrology Forecast May 24-30

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Well we are now right in the middle of Mercury Retrograde, which will last until June 11.

Last week just after Mercury went Retrograde and during Venus’ triggering of the Uranus/Pluto square, some important world events occurred.

As we predicted last week, Mercury Retrograde’s tendency to have people rethink previous certainty brought a reversal of thinking on the Iranian nuclear agreement.

Iran’s Supreme Leader stated that Iran’s military bases and nuclear scientists would be off limits for inspections and interrogations.  The USA had previously believed those inspections and interrogations were agreed upon issues in the preliminary agreement between Iran and world powers.

This rethinking could put an end to the agreement and thus further inflame the Middle East.

And the Islamic State last week took over two important cities in Iraq and Syria:  Ramadi in Iraq and Palmyra in Syria.  The Islamic State has now captured around half of the territory there and has also made advances in Yemen and Libya.  They have seriously changed the reality in the Middle East and world, and make the possibility of ground troop intervention by the USA more likely before too long.

Add the newly sworn in hardline militaristic Israeli government and the Sunni/Shia conflicts expanding through the animosity between Saudi Arabia and Iran- show us how the Middle East tinder box can be lit afire.  And then major conflict and chaos would erupt.

Also last week as the Uranus/Pluto square was triggered, China gave stern warning to the USA to keep its distance from China’s newly created man-made island in the South China Sea. USA planes were encroaching on that space, which looks to be a military base.

Though it is not certainly known whether those islands were created in Chinese territory or International waters; nevertheless it is crazy for the USA to be out there near China’s territory.

Can you imagine the outrage if China was flying its planes near USA military bases, even if in technically international waters?

The Age of Aquarius demands a world of equality and Diversity in Unity.     All of the potential conflicts, as horrible as they may be, meant to break down the current power structures of the world, so new energies and hence a new world community can be built.

The current world structure is held up by a military and economic paradigm and reality.   Those two legs of the old age’s strength will be broken, so a new world can be built.

That means we will need to build a new global economic system, as well as new ways to get along with one with another.

Weapons of mass destruction will have no place in a new world, meaning no one can have them.  As we fret about Iran creating a nuclear bomb,  please remember that the USA is the only country to have used nuclear weapons to kill thousands of people.  And Israel own likely hundreds of their own.

In August of 1945, now almost 70 years ago, we killed over 200,000 mostly innocent civilian people in Nagasaki and Hiroshima with the Atom Bomb.

“Mortal Enemy” attitudes have created these bombs.  These attitudes are prevalent all over the world, and combined with weapons of mass destruction, we are always in grave danger.

Now we are on the verge of a New Age which will transform these attitudes and realities.    But first we will need a huge collective wake-up call.

And economically speaking, there is way too much disparity in money distribution in this world.  A relative few own so much of our world. I saw a show recently that revealed that people in Asia were selling their kidneys in order to feed their families. And in some countries families sell their very young daughters to sex peddlers in order to survive.

Our economic system needs to change so these injustices will end.

I have predicted that by Autumn 2015, the world will have changed quite dramatically from how it was in early 2014- before the Cardinal Grand Cross.  And of course a market crash is part of that transformation.

It is possible, however, that “life support systems” will be built through more monetary easement and printing up of money, for instance.

In that case “death” of the old will be postponed a bit, but not for long.  2016 would be the latest time I can see for such transformation.

Many people are already waking up all over the world, especially seen through many so-called young Millennials who know they cannot fit into the world as it is.  Do you truly fit in, whatever your age may be?

During this current Mercury Retrograde period, rewind the clock of your life, and see how much you may have just slowly accepted the rules of the old paradigm in order to fit in and survive.

In the process of this acceptance of the programming, you may have fallen into jobs, relationships, and lifestyles that are quite opposed to your Truth, quite opposed to your heart’s knowing.

And now if those relationships, jobs, etc are being threatened or if you are feeling restless to make big change,  you are being awakened to be in alignment with the new world being born.

When we are not aligned with the truth in our hearts, minds and bodies; we are more susceptible to illness, physically, emotionally and mentally.

So even more important than leaving people or situations that are not aligned for us anymore, is the need to leave and release old programmed tapes in our minds and hearts that keep us stuck in those old relationships or situations.

Those tapes have created the people or situations that keep us feeling trapped in our life choices. Those tapes may have created feelings of unworthiness, or judgments of our essential nature.

And those feelings or judgments have brought us to the choices that created our current life.

As you change those tapes and the beliefs and attitudes that came with them, you are shifting your energy field, transforming your “frequency”.    And then those changes will help you make better choices and will truly attract to you different people and situations.  This is what the so-called law of attraction is really all about.

It is not about attracting to yourself riches and fame. It is about attracting to your self that which is right for you, right for the authentic self or higher self you are wanting to live in you.

The ego can then no longer run your life and continue to make what you “should be” or “should want” of utmost importance.

This Mercury Retrograde time period may help you to question the direction you have previously chosen.   And if that questioning leads to reversing that direction as Mercury goes back Direct again; you need to know that was necessary as you were travelling down a road not aligned with truth and love, not aligned with your authenticity and deeper soul’s intentions.

till next week,

Leo

Times Are Changing and Astrology Forecast May 17-23

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 16, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week brings changing planetary patterns that will shift the energy field for us.

Last week was difficult for many during the last quarter Moon phase, as the Moon wanes and then goes dark.

Many people felt down and felt like their lives were stuck and not moving forward.

The lunar cycle is often compared to a woman’s cycle as they are both around 28-29 days in length.  The time before her New Moon, so to speak,  can also be rather difficult at times.

On Sunday night May 17, overnight into Monday the 18th, there will be an end to the last quarter darkness- at the New Moon.

There will be a New Moon in Taurus at 12:13 AM EDT May 18.   In reality the darkness does not truly end right at the New Moon.   The Moon will not usually show a lighted sliver until the second night after the New Moon.

So either on Monday the 18th or Tuesday the 19th we will see some light again.

Of course some people are more sensitive to lunar phases than others.  But nevertheless, it is a great time generally speaking to meditate and make intention during the dark Moon.

That period will likely be Saturday through Monday.  Being in the “void” of your consciousness is a positive and aligned way to experience the dark Moon, and in fact a good way to experience much of the last quarter Moon phase.

This New Moon will continue themes that have already begun since the Sun moved into Taurus on April 20.

At a New Moon, the Moon joins the Sun in conjunction.  In this case the Moon and Sun will join together at almost 27 degrees of Taurus.

Taurus themes get even stronger, so body and physical issues predominate.  Nature, home, physical resources like land and money are important.  That which was initiated recently can be felt at a more “grounded” level, and the more practical understandings will be emphasized.

To go along with the more earthy energies of Taurus, there will be a more mental focus as Mercury goes Retrograde several hours later on Monday the 18th.

Mercury goes Retrograde in mentally fast paced Gemini at 9:49 PM that night.  So from then until June 11, when it goes back direct, our mental perceptions will be shifting to rewind, remember, reflect, rewire, reintegrate, and realign.

It is usually not a good time to make major decisions or sign important contracts as so much is shifting mentally during Mercury Retrograde.

Communication issues can also be brought into the spotlight during Mercury Retrograde, which sometimes includes usually minor problems with communication equipment or devices.

People or memories from the past often come back into lives either through dream or waking memories during Mercury Retrograde. Yet also sometimes people from our past will actually “in the flesh” be seen again. We need during these times of revisiting to remember past times and to reintegrate that which we have put aside in our consciousness and life.

During Mercury Retrograde we often are forced to rethink some decision or direction we have previously chosen for our lives.  If this happens, it is best if at all possible to wait until after Mercury goes back Direct before making an absolute decision to change directions.

In the greater world, watch for people to begin to change their minds about previously decided issues.  Watch to see if the potential nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers will be reconsidered and maybe even fall apart.  Other world issues may suddenly also shift direction because new events will change and alter the previous perspective.

To add to these planetary changing winds, we will also experience this week the Sun moving into Gemini as well as Venus in Cancer triggering the Uranus/Pluto square, which is still very much in effect.

The Uranus/Pluto square will not be exact again, but nevertheless they will stay closely square for several more months.  So you can expect much more transformational change in our personal and global lives.

As Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto on Thursday May 21, our emotions and relationships will likely be more volatile than usual.   There is potential, however, for breakthroughs and healings as well this week and into next week.

The Sun goes into Gemini on May 21 also, so there will be more motivation to vary your interests, to take classes, to be more social, to be more in your head.  The nervous system also speeds up with the Sun in Gemini.

There still is much world change ahead as we move toward the eclipses late Summer and Autumn.

And before that important Eclipse Season, there will be a big turning point for world events in late July and early August.

The natal charts of the USA and Israel will be triggered then and throughout the rest of the year.   The Cardinal Grand Cross of 2014, when the USA natal Sun and Saturn were closely impacted, is being affected by Pluto’s movement this year.

There is still much transformation ahead for the USA as we move toward a more equal status with peoples all over the Earth global community.  Diversity in Unity is forming at a “cellular” level now, to be manifested in reality in the 2020s.

There is danger before that, however, of more militarily hawkish leaders to take over governments, including our own.  President Obama, though not as peaceful as his Nobel Prize suggests, is at least showing the way to more peace and equality with the Iran peace process, inclusion of Cuba, and moves away from Israel’s domination of our foreign policy and of the Palestinians.

And Pope Francis is another breath of fresh air as he has gone further then any Pope in my memory for freedom for Palestinians, concern for people who suffer, and even some empathy for the LGBT community.

He and President Obama have crossed old lines of limitation that were created by a wealthy and corrupt Vatican and a dominating Military/Industrial complex.   I believe they have both taken chances with their lives in the process.  They may be a model for others to follow even after they are gone from the world stage, as there are more difficult times ahead.

In America, almost all of the Presidential candidates in both parties are very militaristic and beholden to special interest money.

And a look at the world shows there is much movement in Europe, Russia and elsewhere toward more nationalism. Europe is having immigration challenges and economic challenges and hence turning much more to the “right”.

Nationalism always rears its ugly head before major conflicts in the world, but no matter what happens in the short term, there are plenty of signs the overall movement is toward a healthier, more inclusive and equal world community.

People are waking up all over the world, especially so our young people.

I saw a young woman on TV challenging Jeb Bush about Iraq.  She was confident and strong in telling him his brother Bush invaded Iraq without cause and that that was the reason for the birth of ISIS.

There is a revolution building, even as there is a movement toward protecting the systems of the world that oppress so many people.

Uranus/Pluto is symbolic of this revolutionary and evolutionary movement, just as it was in the ’60s.

The “Times They are a Changin” again, so get used to leaving old comfort zones.  There is no going back to the old normal.  Get used to people, especially young people who will be making gender and sexual roles more fuzzy than ever.

Consciousness changes are necessary if the world is to change.

If you were a member of the ’60s and ’70s transformational times or even those who were born somewhat afterward, remember where you came from.

As you see your kids with tattoos or sexual identity issues or anger toward our world and its governments and corporations re-member.  Remember how your parents were.  You may try to convince yourself that this is different, but in essence it is the same.

Young people are beginning to stand up strong again and are fed up with how this world runs.  Revolution and evolution are growing energies again. The young people now will make their changes in their way, not the same way we did when we were younger.

Guide those children, but do not judge or dominate.  You will lose them.

We need each other in our journey toward an Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Spiritual Soul Journey and Astrology Forecast May 10-16.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 9, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The intensity of Spring Eclipse Season 2015 is winding down.  On Monday May 11 we move into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Aries on April 18.

It is time to look around at your life and your inner world and to see where you are at now.

Look at your life now from a more common sense and practical viewpoint.    What is working and what is not working for you?

What still blocks your ability to move more fully forward?    What inner tapes and programmed messages hold you back?  What past traumas and hurts keep you from trusting?

You can use this last quarter Moon phase to see how your life is settling as the dust clears from the recent shifts and changes.

Next week there will be a New Moon in Taurus on Monday May 18.   And Mercury will go Retrograde that same day, and stay there until June 11.  Then after the New Moon in Gemini on June 16, and after Mercury goes back Direct on the 11th,  there will bring more active and alive energies for moving forward again.

World events, directly related to the shifts during the Eclipses this year, will then erupt again.

Three important Middle East events during the Spring Eclipse Season this year were the election of Bibi Netanyahu in Israel; the nuclear agreement between world powers and Iran; and the civil war in Yemen that brought in Iran and its foe Saudi Arabia.

The issues from these events will go to a new and more serious level later this spring and early summer.

Netanyahu has put together a small but extremely militaristic coalition government in Israel.  It is quite arguably the most conservative, anti Palestinian government put together in that country.    And its opposition to the Iran deal brings much danger for war.

The nuclear deal with Iran needs to be finalized by the end of June this year.  There is much opposition to this deal among Iran’s hardliners, American hardliners, many Sunni Arab governments and of course Israel.

And in Yemen the Iranian backed Houthis who performed a coup of the previous government are fighting against Saudi Arabia, which has invaded Yemen.

Add to this the grave problems in Syria and Iraq with ISIS and Al Queda and it is obvious that we are at a big turning point in the Middle East.

And after Mercury goes Direct and there is New Moon in Gemini, we can expect events to erupt in the Middle East and elsewhere.  Yet the time period to be especially aware of in regards to Israel and the Middle East will be late July/Early August.  

Saturn in Scorpio will be going Direct then as Jupiter in Leo makes square to it.  Israel’s Natal Mars placement in Leo will be almost exactly made conjunct by Jupiter and squared by Saturn at that time.  There will also be a Full Moon in Aquarius around the same time.

For now, however, we go through the waning 4th quarter phase of the Moon this week.   Shore up the practical foundational elements of your life in anticipation of more transformational change coming soon.  More grounded, common sense ways of being and thinking are aligned now.

This week, besides moving through the 4th quarter moon phase, we see on Monday that Mars leaves earthy body centered Taurus for thought provoking Gemini, where it will stay for until June 24.

Mars in Gemini is very active, inquisitive, and mercurial.   You will want to find more interesting pursuits, learning opportunities, and generally fast forward movement.

Mars opposes Saturn in Sagittarius mid week, so fast forward movement will be frustrated by the contraction of Saturn.

And of course we will be moving through a 4th quarter Moon phase this week and Mercury Retrograde next week, so it is a better time for planting Gemini idea seedlings than to blast fast forward with certain plans.

Whatever ideas are planted in your mind this week may need a few weeks to germinate before certain knowing of direction.

After Mercury goes back Direct on June 11 and then there is a New Moon in Gemini on June 16, it will be time to move forward with ideas and plans.

Transformational change does not happen in a straight line of goal setting directness.  It happens in a more circuitous manner, where the mystery of deep seated soul intention plays out in its own way.

Transformation is a process of letting go of that which has died in spirit and allowing for new energies and forms to manifest.

We cannot rush the process, yet we are best served if we get out of the way of the energies that want to move through us.

Those new energies bring to us what we need in our transformational journey.   Change does not always arrive in the manner or form that we intended, but the essence of what we need is always brought to us.

When intention is made to the Universe, it is best to be in true relationship with the Universe like you would with anyone or anything.

The Universe is not an extension of our relationship with mom or dad, and so our past disappointments with parents cannot rule our transformational consciousness.  And sometimes people will make demands of the Universe, telling it they deserve good things because they have been a good person or paid their dues or some such.

But transformation is not for good or bad people but for all souls.  We do not get we want because we were a good or bad girl or boy.

Transformation is more about cycles, endings and beginnings, karma, and attracting to our selves that which is based on how we are vibrating, so to speak.  Our belief systems, our attitudes, our energy, our soul’s frequency, determines the quality of our transformation.

Our best intention to make is probably one that asks to have happen what is in the best interest of all concerned.  And we very likely cannot determine what that is- but the Universe can.

You can know what is no longer aligned with your soul’s journey, and you can know what in essence you need to move into now.  But you will be frustrated if you expect a perfect anything or anyone, or if you make material concerns your highest priority.

We are all on a spiritual soul journey which requires material support, not on a material journey that requires the support of spirit.

till next week,

Leo

Finding our Way and Astrology Forecast May 3-9

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on May 2, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have now passed through the half way point of Spring Season 2015.  The Eclipses and exact Uranus square Pluto meeting have  also passed.

The phase we now enter will show the results of what was shaken up in the first half, when all those intense aspects occurred.

Events that are a direct result of that shake up will erupt this second half of Spring 2015 and into Summer 2015.   Late July/early August will be a turning point time period that shows us the way forward in our transformational journey.

For now we continue toward the Full Moon in Scorpio on Sunday May 3.  This is the Wesak Full Moon, experienced every year at the Full Moon of Sun in Taurus opposite the Moon in Scorpio.  

The Wesak Full Moon is metaphysically connected to Buddha,and is  considered a time to find greater peace and light.

On an energetic level this Full Moon on May 3 at 11:42 PM EDT emits frequencies of bodily comfort (Taurus) and emotional intensity (Scorpio).

Starting from 2 days before the actual Full Moon to around 2 days afterward, you may experience an internal tug of war or a tug of war with another. This conflict is between peace and comfort on the one hand and emotional intensity and drama on the other hand.

Taurus may seek to maintain that comfort even at the expense of real emotions or deep emotional connection.   Scorpio may want to stay hooked into an emotional drama even when there is path to a peaceful solution.

So even inside your self there is a need to balance allowing the truth of your feelings and emotions, no matter how intense or even painful- with a grounding into the stronghold of your body or nature.

This Full Moon also brings some resolution to what was begun around the New Moon in Aries on April 18.   Issues may need to be brought emotionally to the surface again before they can be better resolved.

This coming week, the first full week of May, has the Sun in Taurus mildly triggering the Uranus/Pluto square, pushing transformational issues forward.

Please keep in mind that even though we just passed the last exact square of Uranus and Pluto, that aspect will still be in orb (be close to one another) through 2018.  And its after effects will last even longer.

Remember that the last major meeting of Uranus and Pluto was in 1965-66, when they were conjunct.

That conjunction brought on the ’60s revolution, and the intensity of that revolution lasted through the ’70s.

Civil Rights for African Americans was one of the first burning issues erupting in ’65/66.  And when Martin Luther King was assassinated in April 1968, the Civil Rights revolution for blacks was at a climactic turning point.

Now as Uranus and Pluto square one another, Civil Rights issues are again in the spotlight.  LGBT Civil Rights, including the right to marry, has had many breakthroughs over the last few years. But mush bias and prejudice remains

And over the last few years, even after an African American was elected President of the USA, racial issues have been brought back to awareness: Travon Martin, Ferguson, and now Freddy Gray.

Since we are now in transition from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius, we are moving inexorably into a world of equality and a world of Diversity in Unity. 

All are equal members of the human family, regardless of race, origin, gender, sexual orientation, or lifestyle.

No one is intrinsically better than another.   And African American rights as well as LGBT rights are so important now as these groups have been quite arguably the most oppressed over many years.

And yes all groups of people need to take responsibility for their actions, and to find the place in their hearts that knows we are all one.

But first any blocks of age-old prejudice need to be addressed and released.  And of course attitudes of prejudice and bias can be experienced by any race or nationality or gender or sexual orientation.

But those in power are the ones who can oppress and dominate and abuse.   And  that abuse of power is what needs to be more fully investigated in cases like Ferguson and Freddy Gray.

Our new world cannot tolerate such behavior anymore.

The great hope now is that there can be a more graceful entrance into the Age of Aquarius.

Will there be riots, world wars, militant revolutions, and economic crashes that break down the doors of the old guard’s castles of dominance?

Or can there be sufficient awakenings, heart openings, and healings that will preclude the need for such devastation?

I believe we will know before the end of the year what the general pathway into the Age of Aquarius will look like.

In your personal life now, you can ask the same brand of question:  How much does your old life need drastic overhaul in order to bring you into a more purposeful. authentic, healthy, connected, loving  and meaningful life.

Do you need an overhaul of your spiritual practices, beliefs, health habits, relationships, career, family, and/or home?

Or are you needing merely to recommit your self to your own soul path and continue to make the changes needed?

How much of old societal and family programming still controls your attitudes, beliefs, and actions?

Do you know and accept who you really are, without unfair judgment or self abuse?

Do you know you live in a meaningful Universe that will show your soul the Way to its fulfillment?

Till next week,

Leo
