Chaos versus Order and Astrology Forecast May 29-June 4

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Mercury is now Direct but Mars is still Retrograde until June 29.

Thinking and perceiving should be getting clearer, decisions should be easier to make; but it is not time yet to fully move forward into this new phase of your life.

Nevertheless, by the end of this week there will be more spirited energy to woork with, increased mental activiity and a growing need to connect with others and to communicate.

But first we deal with the last quarter of the lunar cycle, starting Sunday the 29th of May.  With the Moon being in Pisces that day, the pull will be inward and yin-ward, processing all that has happened over the last weeks.

Last quarters of lunar cycles are for processing, going inward and preparing for new beginnings at the New Moon.

The next New Moon will be in Gemini on Saturday June 4.

Before that efforts to get moving faster forward could be thwarted or held back.

Also this week the Sun will be making aspect to Saturn and Neptune, This will touch off an important aspect this year:   Saturn square Neptune. The next exact aspect between them will be on June 17.

Saturn and Neptune have a cycle between them that lasts over 100 years. The most recent cycle began as they were conjunct each other (in the same place in the zodiac) in the late 1980s and early ’90s.

Saturn is law and order, rules and regulations, boundaries and limits. Neptune is surrender and allowing, openness and trust, no boundaries or limits. At its zenith Saturn is right wing fascism. At its zenith Neptune is anarchy.

While Saturn says no under all circumstances, Neptune is open to everyone and everything.

In our country this Saturn square Neptune aspect has been manifesting as thougts of building a wall to keep out immigrants versus letting everyone in.

In Europe it translates into open borders for immigrants from the Middle East versus strict nationalism keeping all but natives out..

In the late ’80s and early ’90s, at the last conjunction between Saturn and Neptune, the Soviet Union was breaking down and South Africa was breaking down apartheid’s oppression over black people.

So though they fought for old rules and ways, eventually the boundaries were broken down in each instance.

It happened relatively gracefully in each instance. Sometimes, however, Neptune can be quite chaotic and even anarchic if it does not see “progressive”results. Saturn can be quite oppressive and fascistic if rules and boundaries are being broken.

The Neptune/Saturn square is triggered this week, as the Sun makes aspect to both Neptune and Saturn.

Watch for the above themes to be playing out.

Saturn is also structure, laws and institutions. Neptune circumvents structures as water moves around, through and under rocks and solid structures. Neptune is mythologically “god of the ocean” and signifies water.

As Neptune and Saturn do their “square” dance with one another, there may be large protests or even riots. This aspect is intensely in effect all this year.

At its worst there can be martial law (Saturn) or complete anarchy (Neptune).

What Russia is doing in many of its old Baltic states- like Ukraine- may be in part to bring back the remnants of the old Soviet Union.

Some countries now are symbolic of Saturn/Neptune as their boundaries are more unclear: Iraq, Syria, and LIbya.

As we change ages old borders and rules and paradigms are meant to transform.  Our world is already looking and feeling differently and will continue ot do so.  By the 2020’s we will not recognize our world now in the same way.  Personal lives are changing radically also.

In your own life what structures are coming undone in your life? What old rules you used to live by don’t feel right anymore? Are you too permisive or too strict with your children, mate, family, or friends?  Do you have “open borders” ot yoru heart or is your heart closed?

On June 4 at 11 PM there is a New Moon in Gemini. This should give some much needed energy to those who have felt shut down or depressed lately. The mind especially will be energized and teaching and learning are encouraged over the next month. Gemini also is more social than its predecessor Taurus. It is quite the communicator and talker and can deliver information like a pure journalist (which is hard to find nowadays).

This New Moon in Gemini means it is time to move forward, but watch your step on anything important as Mars (planet of action and forward movement) is still Retrograde. Your big steps forward into new and important places waits till July and beyond. The New Era is held in abeyance.

This New Era is leading to the Age of Aquarius.  There is nothing to stop this wave of change.

Nevertheless, we humans do have input on how this will all turn out.  Do we fight to the death (literally) to keep the old ways or do we open ourselves up to deep healing and transformation.

President Obama was the first American president to ever visit Hiroshima Japan where we dropped an atomic bomb, killing almost 100,000 people the vast majority innocent civilians.  A few days later we dropped another atomic bomb on Nagasaki, killing another 100,000 people.

To his credit President Obama went there to pay respects ot those who suffered and died as a result of our tragic bombing.  An apology would have been better.

But these weapons of mass destruction represent our collective human hatreds and unconscious desires to destroy our selves and our world.

We can hope and pray that our collective consciousness evolves enough to let in the light and love of the Age Of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

 I am officially changing the webinar dates from beginning June 4 to beginning August 6 then continuing on August 13, and 20.  Here is what the webinar will continue to be:

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.

 I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world evetns will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is $120 to be paid prior to the classes.  Fee will transacted through PayPal or check to my address. Please write me at soulus@aol.com for more information and ot sign up.
Audio recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.

Mercury Direct and Astrology Forecast May 22-28

Posted in Uncategorized on May 21, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

On Sunday May 22 Mercury goes back Direct again.  Iknw for many of you that feels like a big relief, as the last three weeks have been difficult.

We truly have entered a whole new chapter of our lives, one that feels challenging for some.

WE leave a old plateau of familiarity, a comfort zone of sorts, even if not entirely satisfying.

But nevertheless it is time to move forward.  At least now, with Mercury going back Direct, the road ahead will have more clarity soon.

It can take sometimes a couple of weeks after Mercury goes Direct before full clarity is seen, but at least this week we can feel the shift and the movement forward.

It may not be until June 4 at the Gemini New Moon when the fogginess has totally lifted; and not till June 29 (when Mars goes Direct) before you feel your will has surrendered to the New World you find your self in.

By then you will be more clear about what you want in this new chapter and what direction is right to take.

July and August bring more action and important events to our personal and global lives. And then it is Eclipse Season, with a very powerful Solar Eclipse on September 1 that will propel us exponentially ore intensely into this new era of our lives.

For now however, as Mercury rights it self again, we begin to shift our perceptions into clearer focus.

On the 24th Venus leaves physically oriented Taurus for mental and social Gemini.

It is time to get off your couches of comfort and to interact more with others socially and mentally.

Venus in Gemini is also rather light and airy, so you can let down your hair and enjoy the conversations.

On June 26 there is an important Jupiter square Saturn aspect- Jupiter in Virgo square Saturn in Sagittarius.

Jupiter and Saturn have a 20 year cycle with one another, and important cycle in understanding the travails in the world.

This last cycle between them began in May 2000, when they were conjunct in Taurus.

That conjunction was square to Uranus in Aquarius, symbolically letting us know that there would be a stubborn holding onto old ways of being (Taurus planets) versus new ways of being aligned with the Age of Aquarius (Uranus in Aquarius).

That conjunction sets the tone for the whole 20 year cycle.   Starting in the Bush years there were attempts to hold back the tides of positive change, while during the last 8 years of Obama there have been attempts to help create a Diversity in Unity world.

Now at the Jupiter/Saturn square, we face the last 5 yars or so before the Age of Aquarius officially begins.

In December of 2020 Jupiter conjuncts Saturn a 0+ degrees of AQuarius, symbolically bringing in the New Age.

That does not mean that all will be a world of Shangri-La. ON the contrary, as it is the beginning of a 2160 year cycle in Aquarius, muc work will still need to be accomplished.

So the next 4-5years are very important. The quality of this Age of Aquarius depends on us. The port will be opened, but we will be responsible in large part for how it all manifests.

And how much healing will need after what happens in these next 4-5 years? How much destruction will we need to clean up and repair?  What will be the quality of our collective human consciousness then.

It is so impornt now and for the next several years to break the chains of programming the world has over so any people.

We cannot create a new world unless we see outside the boxes of programming and awaken to our new world and its new energies.

It i somewhat encouraging this year, during the presidential primaries. to see people fed up with the current system, which is the old world and paradigm dying.

No matter who they are for, they are fed up withe the old. Ihave not seen this scale of revolt since the ’60s, with more to come I am sure.

For each of us, it is best to find a way to let go of the old inside out own mind and heart, so an empty vessel can be formed,  That empty vessel will receive the new light, love and truth from the Age of AQuarius.

For this week, take your time gaining clarity. It may not come together all at once.

Decisions can soon be made.

The Jupiter/Saturn square, which is so important to our societal well being, can also be important personally.

Jupiter represents that which inspires us, lifts our spirits, and gives us hope for the future. Saturn contracts and tells us what is real and logical.

So you may go through an internal struggle this week between feelings of upliftment and hope versus feelings of sadness or even despair.

Find the right balance for you between hope and reality.

See you next week,

Leo

The webinar series will begin on August 6 and continue on August 13 and 20.  $125  for the series, payable before the classes.

Shifting Energies and Astrology Forecast May 15-21

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast on May 14, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week brings a  shift in energies toward the end of the week and into next week.

The first part of the week, through Thursday, we continue to sometimes painfully self reflect, to focus on the practical material matters, and to have mental fogginess or confusion.

Then  on Friday the Sun moves into Gemini; Saturday there is a Full Moon in Sagittarius; and on Sunday Mercury finally goes back Direct again.

There will be more liveliness and animated conversations, more spirit and less concentration on the physical or body of life.

Gemini is a very sociable and mental sign. It can take in and deliver a lot of information rapidly, sometimes being overwhelmed in the process.  Gemini people are quite changeable and need mental and/or social interaction to stay interested in their life.  They often deliver information without considering the effect it has on others.

And as the Twins, they can have two very different sides to themselves, sometimes the difference is like night and day (dark and light)

Donald Trump is a Sun in Gemini person, who obviously has two very different sides to himself and says things out loud that are not sensitive to others or social norms.  He is also quite changeable as are many Geminis.

Most Geminis are not however as angry, opinionated, or bigoted as The Donald can be. They are usually much more light and playful.

The next day after the Sun goes into Gemini, the Moon goes into Sagittarius to form a Full Moon.

Sun in Gemini presents the facts and information and Moon in Sagittarius looks for the solutions and meaning of it all.

So with Mercury still retrograde but now slowing down to go Direct on the 22nd, there my be much information and opinions floating around.

With Mercury still Retrograde and slowing down, near stationary,

it is not a good time to be sure you mentally have it all figured out.  It is also not a good time to make any major decisions that will have a large effect on your life.

It is better now to let everything simmer and be processed. You can however, turn more to your heart and intuition the next few days. Just be careful it is not your head and ego leading the way.

On Sunday the 22nd Mercury is stationary Direct, meaning it has slowed down to a halt, and from that halt it is shifting from Retrograde to Direct.

This might be the worst day for clarity and decision making.

In November of 2000, on election day between Gore and Bush, Mercury was stationary just like this year.

And you must remember all the confusion over who won that night, with media going back and forth all night between Gore and Bush winning.

Now usually Mercury changing directions does not have anywhere near that kind of drama, but nevertheless be aware that all is shifting and not clear mentally.

But energies should be feeling better soon, as we move through the aspects late this week.

You should be able to find some inspiration and spirit. But remember that it i not time to totally move forward yet.

Wait t least till around the New Moon in Gemini before leaping forward, and in many cases you will not move forward until after Mars goes Direct on June 29th.

Then in July and August there will be big events that propel  us all forward.

In the greater world expect many surprises starting in June or JUly.

Events will come that have great importance for the human family and our Earthly community of souls.

THe political conventions are in July this year, a year of great political change.  these changes are reflective of the angst we huamns are feeling in  deep level of our souls.

And even if you have strong opinions about certain candidates like Trump, stop and look at the big picture.

His candidacy is breaking down walls of status quo dominance over our lives. The old paradigm and powers are needing to go and hopefully the candidates this year are opening the doors to new light coming into our consciousness and lives.

The light does not come from them, but their presence is tearing down the old ‘business as usual” stuckness. Although some might say Bernie Sanders has brought more light into the political process

Life as we know it is ending in many ways. We truly are in a new era of our lives, personally and collectively.

This new era is taking us inexorably into the Age of Aquarius.

So it is obvious how much change is needed to take us there.

This week should begin to bring more life into your life and slowly bring more clarity and direction.

till next week,

Leo

With input from many of you, I am now leaning to do the webinar series in August, but I will wait to make final decision until Mercury goes back direct next Sunday.

Waiting in Transition and Astrology Forecast May 8-14

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in a holding pattern now, waiting for the call to move forward.  Mars and Mercury are Retrograde: Mercury till May 22 and Mars till June 29.

As we just passed through a New Moon in Taurus while all this Retrograde business is going on, we need to be in “get moving” mode even if you do not know where to go.

So get things done around the house, get your finances in order, run errands, clean up the old both physically and mentally/emotionally.

Taurus is a grounded, practical sign; but it is also a sign that appreciates the body and Earth.  It sees much of life through its senses, smelling and touching and tasting.  It loves to enjoy its body through comfort also, so spas and hammocks work well for them.

Since it is “Taurus time” for all of us now, it is a good time for each of us to do what Taurus likes and needs to do.

Since we gotta wait before moving more fully into the new era of our lives, it is good now to keep busy; but it is even more important to do inner work.

It is time with Mercury and Mars retrograde, to feel your past, to do some healing, to release and let go what represents the old era of your life.

It will behoove you to do this inner work, as you do not need baggage from the past as you move into the new era of your life.

Of course one cannot totally remove what one has been traumatized or hurt by in one’s past; but now at the Retrogrades and while you are in transition between eras, the winds of the Universe are at your back for inner healing and release.

In the greater world things have also slowed down, with no big events to speak of.

Politically in the USA the movement for electing President is slowing down as it is more obvious who the candidates will be.

But we do not know for sure who will win or what the process to get there will be like.

Our movement forward is on hold now with conversation about who will support Trump, with questions about Clinton’s troubles with her emails, with unknowns about how Sanders and his values will fit into the democratic platform at the convention.

But much more important than the personalities is what each candidate represents for our world, what direction America is moving toward.

Who wins the Presidency will show us loud and clear who we are now and what we value.

And now during the Retrograde, without the distraction of important primaries anymore, we will be able to truly get to know who the candidates are and what they represent.

On the surface Trump is a wealthy brash celebrity.  What else does he represent on a more substantial level?

Clinton is a woman and part of the Clinton political royalty, but what does she represent on a deeper more substantial level?

With Sanders it is more obvious what he represents on a substantial level. He has been loud and clear for many years.

So we are all processing the primary season we have just gone though- 17 republican candidates later- 3 Democratic candidates later.

We can sit back and wait for the party conventions, which occur in July- after Mars goes direct.

And for all of us July is the time of getting our life automobiles started up again for a drive into the new era of our lives.

This does not mean that personal and global events will stop until July.  The personal events over the next couple months, while the retrogrades continue, will help us to further release old mental tapes, old traumas and hurts, old patterns of Self denial and co-dependency.

The events that happen over the next couple of months will also help us to see more clearly our new era of life, to help us to embrace or at least accept our new life energies.

Remember that most important is how we are shifting energetically, because our energetic shifting will determine what and who we will attact into our lives.

It is  good time now to stay very present with our selves and our interactions with others. Watch and feel what is shifting inside.  You are changing at a deep cellular level, changing to be aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius that we are on the cusp of.

Everything has been accelerated and intensified, so we can do the inner work necessary to change our vibrations and lives.

Transition between worlds is not easy, in fact it can be quite painful at times, especially so when faced with old traumas and wounds. But the new birth can feel so good, so inspiring and heartfelt.

In the global world transition during this current Retrograde period, look for signs and symbols to tell you where things are headed now.

Look closely at Syria and Iraq, North Korea, Israel and Palestine, China and Japan.

Look more closely at the economy and stock market for signs and symbols of change.

It is the military/economic complex that hold up our old world.  There will be bigger and bigger cracks in its structure if we are to experience the kind of transformation necessary to bring the birth of the Age of Aquarius.

So even if some of the world events make you feel very insecure, remember that just like in your personal transformation, there is a need to face old energies and emotions, beliefs, and perceptions that need to be released.

The transitions can be painful and scary at times, but necessary in the process of positive Transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

Til next week,

Leo
