Clearing the Way and Astrology Forecast February 28-March 5

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is the last full week before the first of two strong eclipses in March.

That will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on March 8.  The waters of soul will be triggered to the max at this eclipse, and many are already feeling the deep emotions associated with it already.

The spilling out of feelings and emotions may be quite powerful for some of you.  On a deeper level this is about releasing the past and for some the “ghosts” and “demons” from their past.

There is such a new world that has been opening for all of us collectively and for each of us individually.  We cannot truly embrace this new phase of life if we are holding on too tightly to personal baggage from the past.

And some of that baggage is tied into personal traumas or emotional wounds that are may not be easy to access, let alone release.

Some of us are in need of some deep soul work so our traumas will not be triggered in such a debilitating manner.

As we enter new relationships, old wounds and traumas may limit our ability to trust and be vulnerable.

As we enter new jobs or careers our past hurts can have us feeling a lack of true confidence that we will do a good job or be truly appreciated by others.

Our moving to a new home or community can bring back traumas from our childhood that have us feeling we will not fit in or be accepted for who we are.

And make no mistake about it, this is huge portal that is opening now, a new portal filled with new experiences, new energies, more magic, a new paradigm for living, etc.

And this portal brings us a big step forward toward the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, which by my calculation will be sometime in the early ’20s.

Look at the state of the American world now, as can be seen in the political fighting between presidential candidates.  If you watched the Republican debate last week, you know how ugly and childish it was.

On the surface it makes one doubt we are entering any better world.

But on looking beneath the surface you can see that the old status quo is breaking down, and that is a prerequisite for a new paradigm and age to be built.

The old two party system is corrupt, run by billionaires and mega-corporations and other special interests. We the people have lost our voice.

Yet now with a few of the new candidates, people are coming out in droves because they see the opportunity for “we the people” to take back our power.

Perhaps people are not seeing clearly the character of the candidates who give them hope, but nevertheless people are awakening and it will not be easy to put that genie back in bottle again, so to speak.

Be prepared as other huge events will come our way soon, events that may be quite ugly on the surface, but will help break down the stuck structures and habits from the old world.

And in your personal life it is the same way.  Sometimes we can stay in old ways, and even want to stay in stable situations that have lost their spirit and soul.  It gets so “comfortable” we do not want to disrupt our lives.

But on a deeper level our spirits and souls are dying and require change and transformation.  We would not leave familiar habits without “kicking and screaming” to stay put.

But the waves from this portal will shake us up out of complacency.  March will bring emotional shakeups and force the need for deeper processing. April will bring more action, more manifestation, more motivation to move forward in your life.

This week, on Tuesday we enter the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began on February 8 at the New Moon in Aquarius.   

This last quarter brings us to greater completion, resolution and closure of some issues. There will be some cleaning up to do, some sweeping away of the past, getting prepared for new beginnings at the New Moon Solar Eclipse on March 8.

In the middle of this week, there may be some relationship challenges to deal with as Venus makes aspect to the Uranus/Jupiter quincunx aspect now in the sky and exact on March 6,  my birthday.

Uranus is in Aries and Jupiter in Virgo, so there is a mismatch (quincunx) between those two energies.  Uranus seeks to awaken, make breakthroughs and generally to motivate us to move forward with our lives.

Jupiter in Virgo seeks to help us to put our affairs in order, to clean up and perfect.

And Venus is caught in the middle of all this, which means our relationships may be challenged by our desires for change and liberation as well as needs to make perfect and create order.

And all the while this week, the oceanic waves of change pushing at the Eclipse Portal will get stronger and stronger.

If you look out onto the global scene, you will see more chaos but also attempts at order in Syria, Libya, and Iraq. You will see more portents of greater troubles in Israel/Palestine; more irrationality with North Korea, more signs of economic dangers, and more fear from Republican leaders that they are losing control or their party with the winning by Donald Trump.

Waves of change are ready to pour through the Eclipse Portal, shaking up our world at its foundation.

Keep your self centered with a perspective of the bigger picture:   The Age of Aquarius needs the breakdown of old structures of our dysfunctional and toxic world in order to download new energies and light aligned with this New World.

Till next week at the Solar Eclipse,

Leo

Choosing or not Choosing Change, and Astrology Forecast February 21-27

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on February 20, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Full Moon in Virgo is on Monday February 22  at 1:20 PM EST.     The Eclipse Season has already been bringing in winds of change.

This Full Moon, however, pushes the winds even stronger; and then in two more weeks, on March 8, there is the first of two Eclipses:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces.

The power of transformation is getting stronger and stronger now, breaking down centers of moderation and control.

You can see this happening politcally as candiates like Trump and Sanders are doing well.   They are not members of the moderate wing of their parties, each instead speaking with a strong voice that does not much care about being cautious or restrained.

For any kind of true transformation to take place, that which holds things together must be broken down, so real change can move through without much obstruction or obstacles.

In the late ’60s and ’70s there was great transformation moving through our collective and individual consciousness, as well as through our world. The center was breaking down, in th eworld and in each one of us.

Uranus conjunct Pluto triggered that revolution; now Uranus square Pluto has been triggering this one.

Like the ’60s, people are tired of doing “business as usual” in a corrupt world,  trying to keep privilege and wealth in the same hands over and over again.

Like in the ’60s, people are tired of secret and lies, and other attempts to continue programming  people to be robots or even slaves to those who remain in control and in power.

As our lives continue to come apart at the seams of our old paradigm, allow your self to be more flexible, not fighting change, and instead trusting it to be happening for a reason, with meaning.

I realize that is easier to do when change is happening because of the birth of a baby, or a new and obviously better job, or moving to a better home; but divorces, and even deaths happen so we can move forward into new phases or seasons of our lives.

And now as we move through a Full Moon in Virgo on the way to our first of two eclipses, we are definitely in transition between phases or chapters of our lives.

So many people I talk with or work with now are in transition, letting go of what is passing, and opening up to what is right for them now.

And yes for many there are decisions to make as they move through their transition:  decisions that will affect the quality of the new chapter of their lives.

But can we choose whether we will go through to a new chapter or not?  Do we have that kind of control of our lives and fates?

Well sometimes it is obvious we cannot, like when someone leaves us or dies, or when we are fired from a job or evicted from a home.

But how about if we choose to cheat on our spouse or choose to move to a new home or leave our job on our own?

What if we choose to not cheat or not move or not leave the job?

If we chose to cheat, we are already unsatisfied with our current relationship. And if we leave a home or job, we are similarly unhappy.

So we could choose to stay unsatisfied, could we not? And if we did, would we be choosing to not move forward into a new phase of our lives?

No actually each above example represents a turning point in our lives as we sense we are needing to make choices.

If we move on from our status quo, we are obviously entering a new chapter of our lives.

But if we choose to stay, we are entering a new phase of life too.  Staying showed we were more certainly commiting to our previously chosen life.

Inside ourselves we know we have entered a new chapter, one based on security and stability. We have passed our chance to move into something new and perhaps better.

We have sunken more deeply into our lives, precluding any big chosen changes for likely an extended period of time.

If our choice was out of alignment with the Universe’s higher destiny for us, then we will lose our opportunity for perhaps all our life to ride that destiny.

But we will gain a sense of safety and predictability.

Now such choices may be at yoru doorstep.  How do you want to move through this transitionary time on Planet Earth for the human race?

What potential changes are opportunities for greater satisfacion, personal evolution, and greater connection to our authentic Self and the Universe?

And what potential changes are just temptations to leave our chosen path and to be distracted from our true potential and destiny.

March and April open a Portal into an acceleration through these times of transition into the Age of Aquarius.  Trust your heart, but use your head. That marriage between heart and head is so important now.

This week at the Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo on Monday we move through a relatively gentle full moon.

And with all the intensity now, that will be welcomed by many.

But keep in mind that although this Full Moon is rather gentle, we are also in the first winds of the Eclipse Season.

Change is moving through no matter what.

This Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo strongly suggests we let go, surrender to the Universe and the process of transformation.

It is not aligned now to have too strong an agenda or too much contol.

Choose to not only let go, but to be of service. Let go another notch of ego now, and allow your Higher Self to show the way.

Pisces is rather pure energetically, being sensitive to emotions and feelings that are toxic or even overly intense.  Virgo is rather pure physically, sensitive to environmental toxins and germs that may be around.  It will not tolerate well anything that harms the body.

So as you let go you will feel these senstivities even more.   Let your self be removed from toxic environments, psychologically, spiritually, mentally, or physically.    It is OK to take care of your self.

Next passage after this Full Moon will be at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on March 8.   We will have much to say about that in the next few weeks.

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Winds are Blowing In and Astrology Forecast February 14-20

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 13, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

We can now begin to see and feel some of the issues that will blossom into fullness during the Eclipse Season this March 2016.

Actually Eclipse Season began at the New Moon in Aquarius on February 8,  and the winds will get stronger before the storm hits in March.

The first actual Eclipse will be on March 8,   a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces that will form a powerful T-Square with Jupiter in Virgo and Saturn in Sagittarius.  The second Eclipse will be on March 23, just a few days after the Spring Equinox.  

It will be a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.

For the rest of this month we will be able to see and feel issues in both our personal lives and global lives that will erupt in March and April.

When the Sun goes into Pisces this Thursday/Friday the 18th/19th, the winds of Eclipse Season will get stronger.

It already feels like it will be an important and powerful Eclipse Season, as many people are already getting taken off balance and some are also experiencing more messages from spirit than usual.

The veils are thinner between worlds and frequencies now as we move into the deep waters of a Pisces Solar Eclipse Season.

Pisces is very soulful and often dreamy and other worldly.   It moves through mystical waters beyond and inside of the material world.

When they do not allow that process to unfold naturally or when the “other world” feels blocked from their experience, they may then turn to drugs, alcohol, or other “escapes”.

Deep sensitive feelings are also Piscean, and when the Solar Eclipse erupts in March, the power of feelings will be experienced, feelings that may feel almost overwhelming at times.

As we move into the time of Sun in Pisces this week, we are already beginning to feel deeper feelings, and have more soulful experiences.

Pisces also seduces us into knowing again our “ghosts” of the past.   We may dream or day-dream past situations that are long gone.  We may grieve that past, as we may let go of the old times in our consciousness.

The “ghosts” may come in the form of regrets or nostalgia or just plain sadness of times gone by.

All these experiences are getting us ready for another round of big new beginnings that help us go further forward into this New Chapter of our personal lives and our global lives.

When the New Moon in Aries bursts forth on April 7, with its close conjunction to breakthough making Uranus, we will take off fast forward into this transition time between chapters of our lives.

This is a transition year politically in America too, as we let go of the Obama government and make decisions about the new leader and government.

At the same time as we elect a new president in November, we will be letting into our lives and consciousness a New Era on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

We will know then just how bad our global economy is.  We will know just how bad the Middle East has become.  We will know that the Military Industrial Complex that President Eisenhower told us would be controlling our lives has done just that.

And now it is no longer viable as a structure that runs the country and world.

So who we elect in November will be a reflection of how we decide to handle this huge transformation of restructuring our country and world.

If we elect someone like Trump, we will be saying we are scared to death of losing our old world and want someone who promises “to make America great again”.

If we elect someone else like Sanders we will be saying we want to totally transform our world into something totally new.

Other candidates would be somewhere in between those two positions.

But make no mistake, we are in transition to a new world.

And the Eclipse Season will get us more ready for whatever this new world will be like.

In your personal life, nothing will be more important than finding your truth, your authenticity, as well as your true connections to self, others and the Universe.

Relationships that have become codependent, dysfunctional, or toxic will either need to be transformed or abandoned.   Jobs and careers that are not satisfying and do not reflect who you are will not work for long, or if they do you will be miserable.

So it will be important now, especially with the Pisces influence, to go deeply into your belief systems, your unconscious patterns and behavior, so you can make substantive changes in your life.

All patterns and energies and peoples in our lives have come to us because in large part because of how we are in consciousness, which of course includes our beliefs, our attitudes, our wounds and traumas.

We will have more help from the Universe than usual during this Eclipse Season, to let go of old patterns and beliefs- and to integrate new consciousness and beliefs that are connected to who we are becoming- not anymore who we used to be.

Besides the Sun moving into Pisces this week, as we start the last month of Winter;  on Tuesday relationship heart oriented Venus moves out of steady stable Capricorn and into complicated “outside the box” eccentric Aquarius. This will continue until March 12 when it goes into Pisces.

So with Venus going out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, it may be time to concentrate on relating that is not so centered on keeping things as they are, stable and secure.

Take chances, meet new people, and for sure get your “individuality” on.  It is not aligned to be what others want you to so- BE YOURSELF. And if anyone does not approve,  don’t let it bother you so much.  Why do you need to please them anyway?

Till next week,

Leo

Streams of Change and Astrology Forecast February 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 6, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

 

In March a Major Portal will open the floodgates of accelerated transformational changes for both our global and personal lives. 

Two important Eclipses will burst forward then:  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in water sign Pisces, and a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra

Of course those waters flowing through the new Portal will seek to break down any blockages in systems, souls, and bodies; so these healing waters of revolution and evolution can live more fully in us.

So we have about a month before this transformational energy comes rushing through.

This Monday February 8 brings us an important new beginning with a New Moon in Aquarius.

In many ways sensitive people will begin to experience the Eclipse Season after this New Moon in Aquarius.

Floods of soulful energies will pour through our world beginning at the Solar Eclipse in water sign Pisces.  

Water Bearer Aquarius, an air sign, carries streams of change that will open into an ocean of change at the Solar Eclipse in Pisces. Neptune is the “ruler” of Pisces and of course Neptune is the God of the Oceans.

The New Moon this week in Aquarius is at 9:39 AM EST.  It brings the beginning waves of the Eclipse Season.

So an important lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Aquarius this week.  It carries the energies and issues that will burst forth in March, dramatically changing our lives both personally and globally.

Then April will continue the onslaught of transformational energies, as the Uranus/Pluto square (still in effect), will be triggered as Mars changes directions and Mercury goes Retrograde again.

So at this New Moon in Aquarius, allow the new energies to seep in slowly before their Grand opening in March and April.

This New Moon in Aquarius gets us more attuned with our need to be very distinct individualized persons, being authentic and not molding ourselves according to societal or family dictates.

At the same time as we get in touch with that which makes us unique and different,  aligned with the sign Aquarius we ironically seek socially conscious groups that we can somehow fit into.

Often I write about Diversity within Unity being the callling card of the Age of Aquarius.

Aquarius is about being your unique self with unique function in the community, equal in value to all others, all in unity.

This New Moon in Aquarius is a good time to really get in touch with what you believe in idealistically and politically.

The elections for President should be about who answers your calls for the type of world you believe in, not who is the lesser of evils.

If people keep voting for lesser of two evils, we will always have an “evil” world, so to speak.

This time there are candidates outside the usual boxes, as the world is moving into a New Age.  Vote your heart and conscience, not according to some political “wisdom”.

The Iowa caucus showed favorites doing well, and Ted Cruz won the Republican caucus while Sanders and Clinton were pretty much even.

Astrologically speaking, I do not see Cruz winning.   Rubio, Trump, Bush, and Sanders look the best astrologically to me.

Though my astrological formula has done well in the past, keep in mind that we all vote and nothing is written in stone.

But for Cruz or someone else who does not fit into, by formula,  what is coming into our country and world does not make sense to me.

The New Moon in Aquarius brings with it on February 8- a Chinese New Year of the Monkey.  The monkey is considered a mentally agile symbol and great gains technologically make sense as a result this, as well as new ideas and inventions this coming year.

This year already has shown us that the recent transformational energies are now taking hold and becoming more real.

Yes the Presidential campaigns are showing us how the electorate wants change away from same-old doing business as usual.

The USA has been having its very central core broken down over the last couple of years as Uranus and Pluto have been making aspect to its Sun in Cancer.

The presidential elections show how the USA no longer knows who it is as its identity has been changing.  President Barack Hussein Obama has brought a whole new kind of president, outside the usual box of white anglo saxon protestant male.

And our detente with Cuba and Iran has changed our relationship to the world.  And our not blindly following Israel’s needs has also changed our relationship to them and the Muslim world.

The Middle East is so important to the world’s transformation into a New Age.

The Middle East is where most of our major religions and civilizations were born. It is where the transition between ages is brewing, where a New World will erupt from.

Will we in the USA continue the path President Obama represents and elect someone who continues to be on that track?

Or will we elect someone who sees America as better than the rest, and hates Muslims or others who they feel threaten the American way of life.

Will we bring in a president who will represent Diversity in Unity, equality for all;  or will we need to go back two dangerous steps before we go three steps forward later?

The presidential choices are more clear now than since the ’60s and ’70s.  Each of us must now reach for our “better angels” inside us.  Revenge, fear and hatred will take us into a dark tunnel of pain.  Love combined with Truth will take us to the best places, places aligned with the best of the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo
