By Leo Knighton Tallarico
The lunar cycle that began at the Cancer New Moon on July 4 is coming to an end this week with the New Moon in Leo on Tuesday August 2.
It has been a really rough time for many of us, and of course many horrific world events erupted also during that time period.
There were terror attacks around the world, horrible killing by police of black men, and the horrible killing of police.
This last week of the Cancer lunar cycle was the 4th and last quarter phase of the Moon. It put many in a kind of funk of negative energy.
Now on August 2 at the New Moon in fiery Leo, the heart’s creative expressions will be energized. On the same day Mars, which had been going Retrograde until recently, leaves Scorpio and enters uplifting Sagittarius.
So no more funk and instead there will be lots of fire to motivate and energize you and your life. You may even desire to take new adventures or start new creative ventures.
If you have been “hiding in the weeds” not wanting to come out and be noticed, your time is up.
It will be time to get moving forward, to be seen and noticed, to express what is authentic and aligned with the Truth of who you are naturally.
For some, however, the ego will want to come out and dominate and squash the Higher Soul Self.
Out in the world big egos will dominate even more than ever, and world events that are really difficult will begin to storm back into our lives.
Between now and Election Day in the United States, you can expect lots of intense and important events that will shake up our reality and world.
The political conventions have ended for both Republicans and Democrats. Both Trump and Clinton are going to be really negative and ugly in putting down one another.
We the people will get little inspiration from that process; and many people, especially young ones, will vote Green or Libertarian or just not vote at all.
The Republicans preach individuality and separateness, and taking personal responsibility for one’s self and one’s life.
The Democrats preach togetherness and inclusiveness, taking responsibility for one another.
Both parties, however, cannot deliver on their messages as they are bought and sold by special interest groups and big corporations. They answer to them as well as the Military, and do not answer to we the people.
As President Eisenhower warned us, the Military Industrial Complex would take away our liberty and constitutional rights if we let them. And we have.
Stadiums for sports as well as conventions are named after major corporations and banks. Most major sporting events and other public events have a strong military or police presence at them.
We really need to transform our world and that begins with our individual consciousness and lives. The “system” is in the process of transforming.
But more importantly, is the System that has been programmed in your heart and mind being transformed inside you?
The only political parties that do not owe allegiance to the Military- Economic establishment are the smaller parties Green and Libertarian.
If you really want your vote to be outside the establishment box, vote for Stein (Green) or Johnson (Libertarian).
Don’t get me wrong, I have respect for those (many of my friends) who say a vote for a third party is a vote for Trump. I am sure those on the other side are frightened Clinton will win and tell their friends not to vote for a third party candidate or she will win.
I understand the fears and the need to more practical with one’s vote. I also understand the excitement to have a woman as President.
But a vote for Green or Libertarian is a vote for a better future and truly a New Age.
That New Age is not corrupt or run by big Corporate or big Government or big Military.
It is run by Truth and Love- Both.
This week propels us forward with the New Moon in Leo and Mars going into Sagittarius for a couple of months.
Spirits will be rising, inspiration easier to access. But also people will be more apt to leap into things withour looking, to be more impulsive and driven by ego.
Keep your inspiration out of your ego and judgemental self and you will be alright.
Those who fly flags and carry out warrior agendas of nationalism or religion are taken by big ego and big judgementalism. Fires of inspiration are poisoned by distorted and negative human traits.
For most this new moon and Mars placement willl be healthy, however, and will give them the motivation to embark on new journeys or to more fully enter the New Chapters of Life.
On Friday August 5 Venus leaves Leo and enters Virgo for about a month stay.
It is time to look with a more critical eye at your relationships. Having fun together is great but by itself is not enough to make a true and good relationship.
With Venus in Virgo, we will know that being more humble will really help our relationships to be more pure and innocent again.
