Processing and Preparing and Astrology Forecast March 27- April 2

It has been quite an intense Eclipse Season for many.   We are in transition between chapters of our lives.   We are releasing and perhaps grieving where we have been and who has been with us from the now passing chapter of our lives.

The Lunar Eclipse last week was quite powerful and an important turning point for many.

The old can no longer be easily held onto anymore.  We are being strongly motivated to let go, and if we are capable of letting go with love, that is usually the healthiest way to go.

But truth is also important now, and holding oneself and others accountable is part of that truth.

The next chapter of our lives will be long term better if we leave the old chapter in the “right way”.  Perhaps we have regrets, but they are not good to hold onto.  We can learn from them and find meaning from them, but beating ourselves and others up is out of alignment and does not help our new journey forward.

From now until April 7, at the New Moon in Aries,  we are processing all we have recently gone through on the physical plane, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

We are prepping and preparing on all levels for the strong movement forward after the 7th of April.

So April 7 is a good marking point, if you need one, for new beginnings of all sorts.

If your 3-D life does not have any obvious new chapters, then go deeper inside to see what is changing.

Are you leaving behind old patterns and habits, old attitudes and beliefs?  Are you coming back to your true values and authenticity?   Are you rewiring your self or your life rom the inside?

Do get in touch with the changes now, as this is an important time period on our transformational journey, a time when we are evolving and progressing, whether we consciously know it or not.

In the Greater World there is great change happening between chapters and between ages.

Many signs are pointing to a long term war with the Islamic State, a war that is bound to trigger other conflictual relationships between world countries, cultures and egos.  The suicide bombing in Brussels at the eclipse this week was telling.

Is this what we want or what we need?

There is an economy that looks OK on the outside, but in many peoples’ real lives it is not OK.   How will the transformation of our world economy play out?

The USA presidential election is showing, through what the candidates represent, very different ideas of how to guide our lives going forward into a new chapter and soon new age.

Do we need to revisit old, outworn, unhealthy, destructive, dominating, greedy ways of living on this planet together?

What will it take for the vast majority of this world’s human population to get the fact that all humans are part of the same family with similar needs and hopes?

Will it take a huge wakeup call that happens by taking everything to the edge of despair first?  Or can we wake up in ways that will not destroy so many lives first.

Often I picture aliens coming down to our planet, scaring us, and motivating us to come together as one family in contrast to the Visitors.    I find that a better option than doing the world war and breakdown of our economy again.

Many from a now dying generation experienced a World War and a Depression in their youths.

Another more recent generation, now entering old age, experienced revolutionary times of great change, with much war and violence being a motivation for wanting to change the world.

But now the change at our doorsteps is more important than ever, as we are further along the road to an Age of Aquarius.

As such we so need beliefs and paradigms for each or us and collectively to deeply transform.

We can no longer just accept the idea that those with different orientations of all kinds are our enemy or someone not to be trusted.

We can no longer just accept the paradigm that evolution requires a dog-eat-dog mentality to survive.

We can no longer accept that our lives are filled with random events not connected with any meaning.

In fact we can no longer accept the belief that we are all separate with little or no threads of connection between us.

And we can no longer accept that truth is a matter of how you spin things.   Truth should not be just in the hands of those in power and control. Truth should not be in the hands of those “in authority”.

Truth is there for us all to witness, filtered through our own minds and hearts, not programmed into us by an unhealthy society.

So now this week, as we begin to “come down” from the disruptions of the eclipses, it is time to begin to bring more sanity and groundedness into your consciousness and lives.

Saturn, which just shot out its gravitational energies  to us through its change to retrograde last week, can now provide us with said grounding and organizational skills and discipline.

We can now take back some control of our lives, or better yet take full accountabilty and responsibilty for our own lives and choices.

So this week we begin the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on March 8.

There is a lot to to process and a lot to do while looking forward to new beginnings after the 7th of April.

Also this week, Mercury will be busy with aspects to expansive and transformational planets.

Mercury makes aspect to Jupiter on the 29th, Pluto on the 30th, and onjuncts Uranus on the 31st.

Mercury, the messenger of the gods, will be trying to deliver information from the heavens to each of us for our own lives and for the lives of us as a collective.

It will be a great week for meditation or spiritual practice.

Mercury is also about communication, and how you convey your message to others is important.  If you allow your mind to go deeper, you will get the help you need in how to communicate effectively.

Till next week,

Leo

Being Sane at Times of Change and Astrology Forecast March 20-26

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

There is a plethora of important planetary movements this week.

This week could bring a turning point in one’s life, or a crossroads for some issue.

Most importantly there is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra Wednesday the 23rd at 8:01 AM EDT. 

That same day Jupiter will square Saturn, as Saturn is slowing down as it changes directions to Retrogarde on March 25.  That makes Saturn especially strong.

As such there is a grounded pull downward, a focus toward “getting down to business”,  taking responsibility, organizing or disciplining oneself. The value of logic increases.

There could also be an important decision that needs to be made or a commitment to something important.

There may also be a feeling of fate, that something was meant to be.

The Lunar Eclipse will tend to shake things up out of same-old, same-old status quo, overly comfortable ways of living one’s life.   It is getting to be time to move on regardless if things have been figured out or not.

Since this is a Full Moon in Aries/Libra, there will be a focus on relationship.  That focus will include looking to find a balance between taking care of one’s own needs on the one hand; and taking care of the other person and the relationship on the other hand.

Have we previously focused too much on ourselves- or instead have we been overly accommmodating of the other person in relationship?

If you have been more caretaker than taking care of your own needs, then it is time to find a balance and take care of your self more.

If instead you have been overly focused on your self and not considering enough the other person, then it is time to listen to your friend or mate more.

Aries is about being true to oneself, which is a natural way to be.   Why would we not want to be true to our own authenticity and needs.

Libra is about listening and honoring someone else and the relationship.  It takes an attitude like that to keep a relationship healthy.

So where is the balance found?  Does one of you take care of themselves while the other person tends to the relationship?

It is time to work this out in different, more healthy ways

And Saturn helps to ground everything and to help you focus on committing to try hard to make it all work.

With Jupiter square a focal Saturn this week, it is no time to expand or fly high into anything.  Saturn is a sobering influence, so to speak, and it prevents one from being flighty or airy-fairy.

It is a good week to be real about whatever we think, say or do.

Relationships of all kinds are in the spotlight this week, so relationship between countries or world leaders could be strained and made to be quite real this week.

Saturn should stop anything from getting too out of control this week. Eclipses bring powerful and intense energies of change our way, energies that cause breakdowns of old ways and breakthroughs into new ways of thinking or being.

And that will be true with this week’s Eclipse too, but Saturn should keep you more  focused than at the last eclipse in Pisces.

In the greater world, issues that were previously unresolved or fuzzy or unknown will get clearer and known.

The presidential primaries should bring a more clear idea of who has won or lost.  Also fate may step in with serious repercussions, like if the email scandal for Clinton brings indictments; or if Trump or someone else has some scandal to deal with.

Communication will also be an important issue this week, as Mercury makes stromg aspects to the Sun and Mars on the 23rd and 24th.

Sun conjunct Mercury in Aries suggests we speak openly, with frankness, straight forward and direct.

But if too direct, without consideration for how a person will receive the information, there could be hurt feelings and defensiveness.

So say your piece but be sensitive to the people you are relating to.

This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse being in Aries/Libra also suggests a question of going to battle or making peace.  In Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Iran, Iraq, and North and South Korea this war or peace Eclipse could play out.

In your own life, is it right to be confrontative or better to keep quiet for the sake of having peace.

Or better yet is there a way to state your truth with a velvet glove of soft words?

This week could clear the way so you can soon find direction, clarity, and answers.  But most importantly, this week is a turning point.

It will tend to help us from going over the same mental tapes over and over again without resolution.

As I believe Einstein said- paraphrased,”If you do things the same way over and over again always looking but never finding better results, you are insane”.

It is time to stop the knee jerk habit of repeating the same words or phrases or questions over and over again. We are having the same conversations but nothing ever changes.

If we truly want different more healthy results we need to have the courage to think and act outside the old boxes.  Take chances and get out of old patterns that are ready to die at this Lunar Eclipse New Moon.

There is a feeling of security or stability that keeps us doing the old familiiar ways over and over again.

Now is the opportunity to change while good old Saturn keeps things grounded and sane.

The world is changing so fast now, and we cannot keep alive old rotted patterns except to our detriment.   As the old world keeps trying to keep the old ways, it decays and falls apart-  And so do we, if in our personal lives we try to keep the old and tired ways alive on “life support systems”.

Till next week,

Leo

Riding the Waves and Astrology Forecast March 13-19

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 12, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It is rather difficult to find clarity about life direction now, almost feeling at times like Mercury Retrgrade.    We have been releasing and letting go of the past, trusting that the new world will be clearer as a result.

But for many now, they are caught in a tunnel between worlds, in a void waiting for direction.

Things are shaking up for sure, but where are we going? And if we do know where we are likely going, it still does not feel very settled and solid.

As we look at the greater world, we see similar confusion as to where we are going.  Look at the campaign for President of the USA.

Donald Trump is so different than what anyone might have thought would be President.

But yet now he is is at the front of the line of candidates to be President.

According to my astrological formula for President, he is quite high in rating to win.   To my calculation, if we are faced with overwhelming security issues this autumn, he will win.  If the economy or terrorist issues are in dire straights for Americans, then he will win.

If however things stay as are now, there is a good chance still that Clinton or Sanders will win instead.

So does it feel almost fated that Trump will win?  Does he represent the old America so much, at a time there is a collective need to hold back the tide of the Age of Aquarius?

In 20 years or less, it is calculated that minorities will be the majority in the United States.  White people will be in the minority.  Latinos, African Americans, Asians, and yes Muslims will together make up the majority in America.

And Trump people’s version of America is ending.  Many hate the idea that old way will end.  Old white men running the country was already threatened by Obama’s presidency. And many of these people liking Trump hated President Obama.

Diversity in Unity is coming, but there is a lot to work out first.

And Sanders represents a transformed economy, one more aligned with equality; and he represents an acceptance of the world of Diversity.

So does Clinton bring an acceptance of diversity, and she also represents another break from Old White men running the country.   What many people wonder, however, is if she is beholden to that old world’s values in other starkly important ways.

And it is easy to move through transformational change on just the surface, not on  a deeper level.

In your own life, if you are changing relationships; will that new relationship also bring a change in old unhealthy patterns.  Or are you just changing the sheets in the same old bed of your life?

If you are changing jobs or changing where you live, is it because you need a job or home to reflect the changes you have made internally? That is positive transformaion.

Or is the job or home change just a way you can escape the deeper issues?

This is a time period, an Eclipse Season leading soon to an Age of Aquarius, where the winds of the Universe will assist deeper transformation.  This deeper transformation will bring you closer to your authentic Soul Self, leading a more authentic life in service to a new age on Planet Earth.

And there is much more to experience during this Eclipse Season. I believe this one will last until just past the Full Moon on April 21.

There is still a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra on March 23 to experience, one that will likely shake things up even more drastically than this last one in Pisces.

This one in Pisces has been emotionally intense and confusing for finding clarity and direction.  It has also been difficult for some to focus this week.  In part that is because of the nature of eclipses, and also because the often nebulous sign of Pisces is involved.

But it is also because we have been experiencing a mutable T-Square which includes:  a Solar Eclipse in Pisces, Jupiter in Virgo, and Saturn in Sagittarius.  We are being pulled in 3 different directions, so of ocurse not knowing which way to turn.  And Neptune in Pisces is just out of orb from making a mutable Grand Cross, which would pull us in 4 different directions.

Nevertheless on April 7, at the New Moon in straight forward Aries, we will be sent forward- ready or not.

Our direction, both personally and globally will be pretty much laid out by then.  We will know what is happening as long as we do not choose to put our heads in the sand to escape from seeing clearly.

So for now see it all as a process and let go of strong desires to get going forward in action.

I know it can be stress inducing to sit in the middle and not be moving forward.   But you will know soon enough, so do your best to find some peace internally and focus on healing for a bit more time.

Next week there will be more energy for active pursuits, or at least a feeling like the tide has turned.

That is because very early on the 20th there is the Spring Equinox.  At that time there is equality between dark and light, between yin and yang.  But right afterwards the tide turns to light and yang, to movement forward.

Maybe you will only subtly feel that turn, maybe more so for some.   But keep in mind that once the Moon catches up with the Sun in Aries, then it will be time to get going.

And whenever the Moon catches up to the Sun, a New Moon is created. And the one on April 7 will be in Aries, the sign of active fiery movement forward.

Before that we experience the Spring Equinox while immersed in Eclipse Season.  Just before that, on Wednesday March 16, we experience the rather powerful aspect of Jupiter trine Pluto.

This will mainly be seen in the greater world through its events.  Powerful and maybe even explosive events will happen surrounding that date.  In your personal life, there may also be more intensity again, as this Jupiter trine Pluto aspect happens during Eclipse Season.

So keep your focus on the bigger picture and do your best to keep releasing beliefs and attitudes that no longer serve you or the world we live in.

And open your mind and heart to connect with resonant energies and people, even if on the surface they seem different or strange to you.

Till next week,

Leo

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces and astrology Forecast March 6-12

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 5, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have often written how our entrance into the New Age of Aquarius requires the breakdown of the old world, the system and its’institutions.

And each time we move into an Eclipse Season, the process of breakdown of the system intensifies, even as there is an intensification of breakthroughs too.

These breakthroughs bring new truths, more light and love, and greater alignment with the energies for an Age of Aquarius.  There is also, as part of the process, a return to values at the core of whatever entity is experiencing the transformation.

And this week, on Tuesday March 8 at 8:54 PM EST the first of two in a row eclipses erupts.

So the process of transformation through breakdowns and breakthroughs is intensifying. As we look at the political landscape through the lens of the Democrat and Republican campaigns for President of the USA, we see the people wanting a breakdown of old systems and wanting their core values to be brought back into the world.

No matter what politics you have allegiance to, and Sanders and Trump represent such different values, you must be able to see that both candidates show us how much the people of the USA  desire vast transformational change. And their popularity also shows us the breakdown of the old system.  Since Clinton is a woman, in that regard she also represents a breakdown of the old paradigm that does not truly believe women can be world leaders.

And there will be much more breakdown of the old system.  Since “the system” is run by Government, Corporations/Banks, and Military; we can expect the breakdown to come to those places.

Great change in who and what are running the government, Corporate/Banking breakdowns through stock market and other declines, and more chaotic military conflicts will show us the breakdowns.

This being a Pisces Solar Eclipse New Moon, there should be “ghosts”of the past coming back into the world and personal lives, in order to clear the way for new people, new energies, and new ways of being.

These ghosts will remind us of how it used to be, and let us know that they or it will not be coming back.  At first there may be some nostalgia for the way it used to be, but after a little while, it will be obvious that those old times are gone.

Let your self feel the sadness or grief, but when it is time- let it go- so you can be ready to more fully embrace the New Chapter of life.

The old necessarily dies when it is time, but of course can be metaphorically kept barely alive on “life support systems”.  But those systems can only delay the inevitable and give a bit more time to get used to the changes.

We are getting used to big changes in our world, as can be seen in the aforementioned current political climate.   President  Obama and his government will be gone after the election, and whomever takes over will be so much different than he has been.

And in your own life, what is dying now, what is leaving your world?  The concentration at this New Moon in Pisces is more on what is leaving than arriving, more making peace with the past than greeting the future.

If you need, do ritual around what you are letting go.   In that way you can feel the process as natural and sacred.

If you are letting go of an old relationship, take out pictures and cut them up or bury them, or burn them, or lovingly place them somewhere in your house that represents the past to you.

Feelings may be quite strong around this Pisces Solar Eclipse, sensitivity may be heightened, and desires to escape difficult situations or decisions greater.

A good strategy over the next couple of weeks would be to surrender, or let go, not control, or be too governed by any rigid agendas.

Trusting the Universe is more important than usual and meditation more helpful than usual.

No matter what is happening “on the ground”,  as bad as it may seem right now; in the bigger picture there is an old world dying and a New Age being born.   And there is no way the new world can be built on the foundation of our current old paradigm for living.

That old paradigm rewards selfishness and aggression in men; and rewards looks and submissiveness in women.

It is a dog eat dog eat world, every man or family of nation for itself, creating enemies to rid the world of.   It is a world that rewards big ego and narcissism, rewards the ability to make money and have the “right” image above all else.

If you want the Age of Aquarius for our children, grandchildren and future generations, it is imperative the old world breaks down.  That will be our sacrifice for evolution and the future.

Ironically, concentrating on being in the “here and now”, “in the moment”, is the best way to facilitate the best future.

Spiritually and practically speaking there is only “now”, even as we grieve the past or imagine the future.

We can do all that if we do not dwell or get engulfed by feelings about the past, or imaginings or worries about the future.

This Pisces Solar Eclipse New Moon will bring greater intensity, especially emotionally.  Be careful not to overreact or get defensive in your relationships.  Since feelings are being stirred up now, it is right to be aware of this fact so you can do your best to keep boundaries, and to put a lid on emotions that are on the verge of getting out of control.

Not taking personally what others say to you will also be important now. Focus on what may be bothering them that has little to do with you and more to do with their own issues.

In the greater world,  stay away from fear or hated as best you can.  All is happening for a reason from the bigger picture.  Certain personalities or countries that represent everything that is against your values are not your enemy to be hated.

Making the Diversity in Unity world come to fruition is dependent on each of us living by that standard.  Or as my Mother used to say, “it takes all kinds to make up this world”. Some we like and some we do not, as is natural.

I can’t truly understand why there have to be crocodiles, sharks or tics in the world, but part of nature’s mystery makes them all necessary.

Let go this week, trust the Universe and Nature, including Human Nature.

Talk with you next week,

Leo
