Mars Direct and Astrology Forecast June 26- July 2

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week brings an important turning point as Mars goes back Direct late Wednesday the 29th of June.  It has been Retrograde since April 17.

During that time we have been reflecting on what we truly want and what directions we truly want to take.   We have been dealing with issues of personal empowerment, self assertion and proper use of one’s will.

Our lives have been on hold since mid April, but now it is time to start up your life engines again and lead your life from a more empowered place.

You may have felt uneasy before being in your own power, afraid to truly assert your self. But now you are ready to put yourself out there and let people know you have value.

Remember back in mid April we had just gone through a couple of powerful eclipses and many felt ready for some big change in the world and in their personal lives.

But then soon after the eclipses, Mercury and Mars went retrograde- putting some pause on fully entering a New Chapter of our lives.  Mercury has already gone back Direct and Mars will follow this week.

In the greater world so much has been changing during Mars Retrograde.  Most notably Orlando faced a grave tragedy; and Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump have been apparently chosen as Presidential candidates.

So many important issues have been brought up in our collective consciousness during Mars Retrograde as a result of those events.

Gun control is back on the front burner as an issue to be resolved.  LGBT rights and abuses around the world are being looked at more seriously.   We also are debating how to better handle terrorism and the Islamic State.

Many have now opened their minds to a third political party in the USA, like Libertarian or Green party because of potential disappointment in presidential choices.

The reality of this new Chapter of our collective lives politically will become more real now as the Democrat and Republican parties have their Presidential conventions in July.

The 8 year chapter of President Obama is ending and there will be some grief for many.

Britain has also been deciding during Mars Retrograde if it will leave the Europen Union or not.  Now a few days before mars goes back Direct, it has chosen to leave the Union. This is a move that will severely affect the markets and world economy.

Israel now has a more conservative and nationalistic government than before and many other countries appear to be going that way too.

This portends intense conflict in the Middle East and around the world.

But the Aquarian Age seeds that have been planted during this passing chapter of our lives will grow into a full Age of Aquarius in the 2020’s.

We will likely endure, however, a very challenging 3-5 years before that grand opening into a New Age.

There are many old ways of being human, like “dog eat dog” power struggles and “greed is good” attitudes, that need to die. These next few years will show how obsolete these attitudes are.

During these next few years we can also learn to be more authentic and true to our selves in anticipation of being more connected and whole as a human race.

That is because Diversity in Unity ( Aquarian Age paradigm)  requires a person or country or any entity be true to its individuality before it can join in unity with others. England is going through this process now with its withdrawal from the Eurpean Union.

Even though Mars goes Direct this week, we will be in the last quarter lunar cycle most of the week, usually a time to wind down, reflect and prepare for new beginnings at the new moon.

So rev up your life engine this week when Mars goes Direct, but true forward movement will not happen until the New Moon in Cancer on July 4, and for many not until the more fiery New Moon in Leo on August 2.

So this week you can nevertheless feel the shift forward, and sense the new beginnings.  There should be some sense of relief- similar to when Mercury goes back Direct.

Sunday the 26th of June brings a very collective Jupiter trine Pluto aspect.  This can be often bring strong world events, and with Mars also being in the spotlight you can likely expect more important world events this week. 

On the 30th/31st Venus makes aspect to both Jupiter and Pluto, so it can be expected that heart issues and relationships will be in the spotlight.     Your relationships could intensify emotionally later this coming week, giving an opportunity to transform old patterns that no longer work for you both.

So this week should be an interesting week that shows us a true turning point into a New Chapter of our lives on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Time to start thinking if you want to be involved in the webinars in August.

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday August 6 at 1 PM  EDT.  The series will continue Saturdays August 13 and 20th at 1 PM to finish up the series.   Each class will last approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

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 events  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.

Solstice Turning Point and Astrology Forecast June 19-25

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 18, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The next couple of weeks will bring us some important planetary movement, with new doors ready to open for us.

There is a Full Moon in Sagittarius Monday, which is the same day as the annual Summer Solstice and a renewal of the mutable Grand Cross.    

Next Sunday the 26th brings an intense Jupiter trine Pluto.  And most importantly on June 29 Mars finally goes back Direct again.

The first turning point is this Monday June 20.  It is more important than the usual Summer Solstice as there is Full Moon and Mutable Grand Cross also.

Summer Solstice is always a major turning point in the year as it begins a new Season in the northern hemisphere, Summer.  The exact moment of Summer Solstice is 6:34 PM EDT.

Light/yang minutes of the day are at their greatest then, with dark/yin minutes at their least.

Metaphorically, the active outer directed energies are supreme, with the inner oriented, more subtle and subdued energies at their lowest in expression.

After today the dark rises and the light falls slowly until Autumn Equinox when light and dark are equal.

Now at the Summer Solstice people are generally more excited and “up” than at Winter Solstice for instance.

This year there is a Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius at 7:02 AM on the 20th.  This is also a lively happening, stimulating needs to figure things out through relating and communicating.

Also there is a mutable Grand Cross with Mercury in Gemini making aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Virgo.

It willl be easy for people to leap into things they would usually think about at other times.

Leaping could bring positive results because of being outside the usual boxes- or negative results because one did not look before they leaped or talked.

The span of influence covered by these planetary movements on June 20 is about 5 days, from the 18th to the 23rd, with emphasis on the 20th.

Some astrologers are predicting a really crazy time period around the 20th, but can it be much more crazy than it has been lately?

Nevertheless, look for the planetary movements around the 20th to open some doors, at least in your consciousness, in preparation for Mars going Direct on the 29th of June.

After the 29th a huge portal or door will open,, allowing you to get off the pause button in your life.

You will more easily move forward and make decisions and feel like life has opened back up for you. This does not mean that magically on the 29th all your troubles or frustrations will be eliminated.

It means that energetically things begin to open up- slowly at first then picking up more steam later.  You should be able to feel the shift around the 29th.

Since we last wrote to you the tragedy in Orlando erupted into our world and consciousness.

Such pain and suffering and horrifying fear were felt.  People’s real attitudes and feelings toward LGBT people, toward Islam, toward security fears, and toward guns opened up into the light.

There are so many important discussions that need to be had now in our American community.   But there is such a lack of flexibility and open-mindedness and respect for others’s opinions in the way.

We  are truly a disfunctional community that so deperately needs to come together at this crucial time for humanity on Earth.

We are in transiton between paradigms and ages, and I am afraid that these horrifying events will continue to happen until we come together to find answers that are aligned with the new age we are entering.

We will have a new President elected in less than 6 months now, as President Obama and his family prepare for life outside the White House.

None of us agree with everything his Presidency accomplished and we know little was done to break up the dominance of the Military/Industrial Complex that runs our democracy and lives.

But his presidency should be appreciated for the many changes that are aligned with the Age Of Aquarius.

There has been a respect shown for other cultures,religions, and nations, an honoring of those who were previously looked down on and abused, a thoughtful approach to challenges and problems, a finesse-full style of governing.

With what we likely have coming in contrast, he will be missed.

For now as he is about to leave, one can see more chaos ready to enter.  And more reactionary control measures to hold down the out of control events.

Right wing nationalism is growing stronger in Europe now as in the Uniter States.

At the same time the New Age is bursting at the seams, ready to bring more love and light in a big way.

Concentrate on that and you will be alright.  Do not get too focused on the horrible dramas that continue to play out. Yes feel the commpassion for those who are suffering, but do not let yourself be overcome with fear or rage.

Most people will be swept up by the drama, the strong emotions, the hatred and fear of those who are being demonized.

The only demon to be fought is our own human desire to  have a demonized enemy and be filled with hatred and fear for them.   As always much of the real work now is internal, with our own beliefs and attitudes.

This week the Summer Solstice brings with it the Sun moving into Cancer.  It is time for family and friends, for being in safe and protected environments where you feel nurtured and “seen” and appreciated.

Mars Direct is soon now.  Get your inner and outer worlds prepared for the movement forward after June 29.  Summer Solstice/Full Moon will be a turning point in that process.

Till next week,

Leo

Letting Go of the Baggage and Astrology Forecast June 12-18

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 11, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Life is on hold until after Mars goes Direct on June 29. This does not mean you can do nothing in the interim;  it just means there is a feeling and reality that efforts to direct one’s attention to big steps forward are difficult if not impossible.

While we are waiting for the gate into a new phase of life to open, many of us are facing some real challenges. In fact for many their most sensitive and diffcults wounds or traumas have been triggered.

They are caught up in emotions that have been overwhelming their usual stable sanity.

Seems to me that we are cleaning up as much baggage as we can before we face new challenges and opportunities on the other side of the gate.

So go to your healers and counselors now to assist your journey or spend more time in meditation or spiritual practices now.

I know the world seems crazy now, but it is really a result of changing tides from one age to another.  We  are collectively and individually in transition and working to heal, release and let go of old tapes and conditioned programs in our heads and hearts.

On the contrary some of you are enjoying the ride into this new chapter of life.   Emotional baggage has not surfaced in any difficult way as of yet and the world’s troubles and confusions have not caught up to you yet.

But make no mistake, world craziness will accelerate soon, with important world events screaming for attention.

The Middle East will very soon erupt explosively, with emphasis on Israel, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

The political presidential landscape will get even crazier as scandals,  illegalities, corruptions, and secrets break out in the open.

Our global economy will face great challenges soon also.

At the same time protests and revolutionary energies and actions will increase exponentially.   Spritual enlightenment, synchronicites and awakenings will multiply.  People will have a much stronger sense of unity with their fellow human, as we all are motivated to change the world for the better.

The astrological reflection of this current change sits mainly with Saturn square Neptune which is good for this whole year but exact this week Friday the 17th of June.

As we have stated in previous forecasts,  Order and boundaries and status quo (Saturn) are challenged by disorder, open boundaries, confusion, chaos and change (Neptune).

We have mentioned immigration issues and redrawn state boundaries as part of this Saturn/Neptune process. And to add to this theme, later this month, Brits will be voting on staying or leaving the European Union.  That vote will greatly affect the economic stablity of Europe and beyond.

So much is changing, yet some like Donald Trump are wanting to turn back the clock  to the ’50s in America, before civil rights breakthroughs or globalism.

Do we need to stop to turn back the clock for awhile, or is it time to go further with revolutionary and evolutionary progress.

Voters in the United States will be letting us know their feelings on the matter come November.

In addition to Saturn/Neptune and Mars Retrograde, we are approaching Summer Solstice with a Full Moon joining it on June 20. We will talk more about that next week.

This week Neptune ( as it is squaring Saturn) changes directions to go retrograde on Monday the 13th.  This puts Neptune vibes in the psychic airwaves.  Neptunes is inner directed, aligned with the inner spiritual plane and rules psychic insights, insights in general,  fogginess and confusion, gentle poetic feelings, drugs, alcohol, chaos, and escapism.

If you are taking the Higher Self route of spiritual connection, it wil be best this week to let go and surrender to that which is greater, to trust the Universe, and to allow the process to play itself out without needs to control or dominate or think too much to figure it all out.

The Sun makes “minor” aspects to Uranus and Mars on Tuesday putting emphasis on independence, self expression, and empowerment.  It is time to stop being a doormat and to speak up.

Venus moves into Cancer on Friday the 17th.  It will stay in Cancer for about a month.  As it leaves Gemini, heart energies shift from light and lively to Cancerian softness and nurturance.

It is time to go deeper in your intimacies with loved ones, to open your heart and trust again.  This trust will allow you to be more vulnerable, which will open you up to greater nurturance from others.

It will also open your heart up to those who need care and concern from you, so you can give them the nurturance they need also.

Mars makes a quincunx (150 degree) angle to Uranus on Saturday the 18th. Time to break out of the box and let more assertive revolutionary energy into your consciousness and bones.  Life is changing and so are you.

Late June and July are lunching pads for new beginnings and startups.  Best now to heal your wounds and traumas as best you can, so you can have less baggage to haul around in this new Era of our lives.

And then in the 2020’s The Age of Aquarius comes into its own.

Till next week,

Leo

Mutable Grand Cross New Moon and Astrology Forecast June 5-12

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are experiencing an important New Moon in Gemini on June 4 at 11 PM EDT.   The lunar cycle it begins will stretch through Mars going Direct on June 29.   And most importantly it forms a Mutable Grand Cross that includes Saturn square Neptune.

The Grand Cross has the Sun, Moon, and Venus in Gemini;   Saturn opposing those planets in Sagittarius;  Neptune squaring both those position in Pisces;  and Jupiter opposing Neptune and squaring the other planets from Virgo.

Grand crosses pull us in 4 different directions. The best way to handle one is to let go and take the ride, not try too hard to figure things out or control things.

In this case the 3 Gemini planets seek to receive and deliver information; Saturn in Sagittarius seeks to put information together into a defined opinion or conclusion;  Neptune in Pisces seeks to let go and trust;  Jupiter in Virgo seeks order.

All these planets together in mutable signs tell us to let go to the winds of change.  There is so much change in the air now as we all adjust to this new chapter of experience we find ourselves in.

As we gather new information and insights, we are searching  for ways to find some answers and conclusions.  But there is a tendency now to focus too much on solving issues. This can bring us to mental overload and being obsessed.   Neptune seeks to help us to surrender our chattering minds or to find escapes or indulge in addictions. It is best now to trust the process while believing the answers will come in at just the right time.

This Grand Cross New Moon, however, should be good for interesting conversations, for lively discussions with differences in opinion.

It may also be a good time for new ideas or ways of thinking and seeing things.

This is the last New Moon before Mars goes Direct, and it represents us revving up our engines before we drive more fully forward after June 29.

This is also a good time to be aware of messages from spirit, to be aware of signs, symbols, and synchronicities.   One should be open to changes of mind too.

Saturn square Neptune within the Grand Cross shows us order versus disorder and boundaries and limits versus openness and porousness.

The greater world is in such disorder now trying to find its way.  Ther is an old system that is running out of steam.  There is little honesty, integrity, and heart inside the empty old structures.

The Republican and Democrat parties are representative of this old system.  Bernie Sanders is a voice outside the sytem, as up to this year he has indenified with being an Independent Senator.

The Libertarian and Green parties also represent more pure and uncorrupted voices outside the system.  But how much chance do its candidates have? If the dominating and controlling debate committees run by the Democrat and Republican parties found a place on the stage for other parties to participate in Presidential debates, the American public would benefit greatly.

But I think you can see the Saturn/Neptune square playing out in the presidential race.  The Old Guard has been trying to maintain the old order, while candidates like Trump and Sanders are bringing new ways that are bringing with them more chaos and disorder and even riots.

As we get into the political conventions this summer, order versus disorder wil play out even more, and who knows how it will all pan out in this New Era.

In the greater world, and especially the Middle East, Order versus Chaos will continue to play out. Islamic State has broken apart old state borders and threatens more chaos. A very conservative Israeli government and an increasingly desperate Palestinian community shows potential greater conflict also.

China in the far east has been building new places in the ocean that it claims it owns while other countries strongly disagree. And Taiwan is now, with its new President, showing greater signs of independence from China.

And other countries and immigration will continue this breaking down of old borders and boundaries.

This is all meant to be as we leave the Pisces Age for the Age of Aquarius.   We are in a very intense transition between ages,  and the old will continue to break down, though leaders will sometimes stubbornly and violently hold onto the way it used to be.

This is not about the bad guys from a bad age fighting the good guys from a good age,though it may feel like that sometimes.

It is really like nature changing its seasons, except more intensely and dramatically.

Thus if you are a progressive who has much anger against more conservative voices in our world, keep in mind that they represent the part of all of us that is resistant to big change, that holds onto the old and comfortable.

They are not the enemy.

And if you are more conservative and like the world just as it is. do not demonize those who want change as crazy communists or luny dreamers bringing unnnatural chaotic ways into your life.

This week you should be taken out of old ruts and depressed feelings, as this is a stimulating if perhaps confusing New Moon Grand Cross.

Sometimes old ruts can feel like a comfort zone even if not good for us.  Do your best now to let these winds take you out of the ruts.

But it will not be time yet to move fully forward personally or globally. That will wait until July and August.

Till next week,

Leo
