Renewed Clarity Moving Forward and Astrology Forecast September 25- October 7

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Mercury is Direct again as we settle down into the beginning of Autumn 2016.   Be present now for how your thinking and feelings have been shifting.

The fog is lifting.  As it lifts, the Libra frequencies of Autumn bring consciousness to greater awareness of others, more empathy and sensitivity to what others are experiencing.

No matter how much we may try to deny it, relationships have such a great influence on how we feel about ourselves and life.

We may try to shut others out, but unless we live alone and never go outside our home, we will encounter and be influenced by others.

Too bad early education does not have classes on how to be in relationships, or how to be a parent, or how to be in a healthy marriage, etc.

We have developed so much on the material plane, travelled to the Moon, created amazing technology, created flying machines, cures for deadly diseases, and mass communication.

But we do not really know how to get along with one another, how to respect others’ lifestyles and religions and cultures and sexual orientations.

In America now there is a very angry culture war going on that is represented by the Presidential election.

Trump supporters are passionate about the more conservative values he represents for  them, and they demonize Clinton and her supporters.   Clinton supporters are passionate about the more liberal values she represents for them and they demonize Trump and his supporters. There is little attempt on either side to truly empathize with the other side.

“We are different yet we respect each other’s view” is rarely heard these days..

On one level there is a splitting that is happening at a very core level .  But at the same time there is a stong force of Unification growing in each one of us.

We are in the bigger picture- long term- moving toward knowing we are all different, a truly diverse human family, but all One.

And you cannot truly believe in diversity, BTW, if you do not see conservative southerners  as part of that diversity- or you cannot see Muslims or North Koreans as part of that diversity, for instance.

Look at the sky and see the perfectly round Moon and Sun.   Pick up a Yin/Yang symbol and see dark and light joined in circular oneness.  See an astrological circular mandala and view all the signs, planets, and houses joined together as one.

How and why have we split apart so drastically? Our split is why we have those so rich and those so desperately poor; why we have perpetrators and victims; why we demonize those we do not agree with.

I believe in the greater world we are now in for an even greater splitting apart before we can come together as one in an Age of Aquarius.

It is almost impossible to talk rationally with many people now about the Election.  There is so much hatred coming from so many people.

It is best for those who want to be a part of the new world to get outside the box of the duality in more ways than one.

If you want to have new world consciousness you are wanting to see life as like a Yin/Yang symbol, dark and light, male and female, yin and yang different but together in Oneness.

You cannot change what is coming to us except to get your consciousness vibrating at the frequency of Diversity in Unity, with love and truth at the core of your soul.

This week, as we begin our Autumn journey, with Mercury Direct and the Eclipses in our rear view mirrors, we will experience Pluto changing directions and a New Moon in Libra.

On Monday September 26, Pluto the ruler of Scorpio and the mythical Guardian of the Underworld will go from Retrograde to Direct.

Pluto is a transformational planet that is quite intense and potentially explosive.  As it moves from Retrograde to Direct, its intense energy permeates our collective and individual souls.

It is meaningful that the first Presidential debate is happening as Pluto goes direct.

Expect a most powerful debate, one that will somehow transform the conflict between Clinton and Trump and the people who follow them.

In your personal life you may well experience an increase of passion and intensity in the days surrounding Pluto’s shift.

You may also have arguments or inner conflicts that bring you a transformation of a relationship or of your own beliefs or consciousness.

Other powerful world events may be showing themselves in the days surrounding Pluto’s shift.

On Friday September 30 there will be a New Moon in Libra at 8:11 PM. Jupiter will be conjunct the New Moon while Mars and Pluto square it in Capricorn.

There will be a lot of energy in this lunation, one that will involve relationship in one form or another.

Libra, being relationship oriented, seeks the bringing of people together to relate with one another.  Jupiter conjunct this New Moon serves to inspire such a connection.  But Mars and Pluto in Capricorn may put a damper on such a union with doses of practical reality

This New Moon in Libra also brings more beauty to our lives, like the soon to fall leaves of multi colors.

Be aware now of what is fair and just and what constitutes a win/win for both parties.  Libra wants grace and peace, harmony and ease.

Some conflicts in the world now will seek peaceful resolution.    It may signify a temporary break in the conflict or perhaps even a more permanent settlement.

This New Moon in Libra moves us forward out of Eclipse Season.

I will miss the Forecast for next Saturday the 1st of October, but will resume again on Saturday October 8. I will be visiting the Southwest in Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado.

The week I will be absent is a mild week astrologially.

However from Wednesday the 5th through Friday the 7th there are some minor planetary rumblings.

Mars will square both Jupiter and Pluto while Venus sextiles Pluto.  These aspects should amp up the energy field and tempt people to be more impulsive.

Counteracting that impulsiveness and volatility is Mercury leaving Virgo to enter Libra for around a month. This transition happens on Friday October 7

Mercury in Libra is mentally very balanced and peaceful and a mediator and diplomat in disagreements.

Till we meet again on October 8.

Shifting Realities and Astrology Forecast September 18-24

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week brings us winds shifting into a turning point.

Mercury has been Retrograde since August 3; on September 22 it goes back Direct again.

Also on September 22, Summer is ending at the Autumn Equinox at 10:21 AM EDT.

We have made it through 2 Eclipses this September, and now though the eclipses have passed us by, we still are in the waning energies of Eclipse Season.

As Eclipse Season begins to slow down, we flow right into the metaphorical sunset time of year: Autumn Equinox, the beginning also of Libra time of year.

Twice a year Light and Dark are equal:  Spring Equinox and Autumn Equinox.  At Spring Equinox, though yin and yang are equal, the turn is toward Yang and Light, with yin and darker days waning.

But at Autumn Equinox the reverse is true:  Light and Dark, Yin and Yang are equal; but Yin and darker days begin to grow.

So we begin to slow down and turn more inward.  We also begin to let go more of striving  and personal gain, and instead become more relationship oriented and appreciative of what we have.

As the light begins to dim, we become more grateful for the friends we have, more wanting to focus on relationship and inner values.

As this yin-ward movement begins, this year it is accompanied by Mercury going back Direct again. I know many will be quite relieved at that shift.

Clarity begins to appear, fogs lift to show us more clearly what direction we need to move in.

You may not get the full picture and feel comfortable to move forward yet however.

The New Moon in Libra on September 30 is a good marking point for greater clarity and movement forward.

But for this week enjoy the shift, allow the shift inside yourself.

Many, since Mercury went Retrograde, questioned their previous choices or beliefs, perceived in new ways, woke up to new ideas.

Some also have experienced a slide back to old times, to old friends and relationships in their minds, dreams or in the flesh.

We were reminded of how it used to be so we could see our current situations from a bigger or deeper perspective.

Sometimes we get so goal directed, or driven by a strict agenda, or so sure of our way of seeing things.  We need to be loosened up, to see other points of view. Mercury Retrograde can help us to do that.

And though Mercury Retrograde can be very difficult, it does help us to be more process oriented, and to open our minds and hearts to other viewpoints and feelings.

Now with the Autumn Equinox added to Mercury going back Direct again, and the last eclipse having passed; we can slow down and allow life to show us the way as things now unfold.

We have been learning that forced left brain obsession with finding the answers, has left us with more anxiety and less clarity.

Autumn Equinox lets us know that colder darker days are slowly moving in.  We know we need people more as a result.

The Sun moves into relationship oriented Libra at the Autumn Equinox.  Relationship means friends and family and romance, but it also means more awareness of social ways of perceiving and being.

Everything we do or say affects others, and though we may value pure and honest self expression; we often need to balance our frank expression with a sensitivity to how it makes others feel or how it will affect the state of our relationship.

Libra also seeks relationship in other ways.  It likes symmetry and beauty and how colors and shapes interact with one another. It is motivated by love.

It cares about balancing the scales of justice and seeing both sides of an argument.

In that process of seeing both sides it can be very indecisive and also can give up its own needs and individual self.  It can be so accomodating of others.

It also can be so caught up with how things appear or how they should be socially correct. In so being it can lose the deeper value of a situation or the honest expression.

Yet Libra stands for Connection, Fairness and Peace above all else.

As the disrupting energies of eclipses leave our consciousness and lives, we are ready to see what will take shape as a result.

There will be both world and personal events coming soon that will be a result of what has been shaken up during the eclipses.

The Presidential Election process will begin to clear up after Mercury goes back Direct.  In fact just a few days after Mercury goes back direct there is the first Presidential debate- I believe on September 26.

That debate should provide for those tuned in a real good sense of what direction the election process is moving toward.

In your personal life you could very well begin to feel soon as if you made it through a challenging time, progressed and grew, and now are ready for what will come your way.

The recent weeks have been a transformational challenge, pitting us up against some of our core issues.

You have released some of the emotional baggage and will feel lighter and more open to being your authentic self and receiving others as they are naturally.

We are all evolving in alignment with the changing energies, energies aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into.

If you are sensing, seeing or feeling things that are not usually a part of what you call reality, you are not going crazy.

You are instead spiritually awakening to frequencies and realities that are beyond what we are taught to exist.

Entering into these worlds or being open to these entities will assist your evolution and your journey into the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

A Step Beyond and Astrology Forecast September 11- 17.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is round 2 of eclipses, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces on Friday September 16 at 3:05 PM EDT.

That means that intensity will build this coming week appreciably until it climaxes on or around the 16th.

Since Mercury also stays Retrograde all this week, it may at times feel quite off balance emotionally and mentally.

The more one energetically rides the waves, the better.   If one holds too tightly and tries to control too much it will be more difficult this week.

Adding to the intensity of the eclipse, Mars in Sagittarius will square the points of the Sun and Moon positions of the eclipse.

That makes a T-square formation, a usually difficult pulling in 3 different directions energetically.

Sun in Virgo pulls toward physical order, logical analysis, and perfecting or fixing;  Moon in Pisces wants to be able to let go and surrender, allow the soul to speak its truth, and to go with the flow.   Both seek to be of service to others or to something greater than the self.

Mars in Sagittarius wants to stoke the fires of enthusiasm and inspiration, take the exciting adventure, and trust inspiration.   Virgo moves downward, Pisces moves inward, Sagittarius moves upward.    Virgo is earth, Pisces is water, Sagittarius is fire.

If you try too hard to figure everything out this week, you will likely be frustrated.  If you encounter challenges or difficulties, it will be best to let the process unfold without needing to totally understand everything or to force conclusions or answers.

Remember that Mercury is Retrograde and as such it requires letting go of mental controls, and instead to trust other ways of comprehension like intuition or imagination.

You may be rewinding the clock of your life now, revisiting with people from your past through dreams, memories or actual in-person connections.

This may bring up unresolved issues, issues you have put aside and thought were resolved well enough.

Current situations in your life can be seen as similar to the ones that are coming back to you from the past.

You thus have the opportunity to work through blocks or dysfunctional patterns in your life or relationships.    The past only needs to come back so it can be applied to current issues that need resolution or healing. Or perhaps it is back so you find closure to the old issues, so you can move on in your life or relationships.

If you are feeling hurt beyond what seems “logical”, then you know it is an old wound or trauma that has been triggered inside you.

Eclipses help us to move out of stuck places in our minds or hearts. They do so by taking us out of our comfort zones, creating breakdowns or breakthroughs out of those stuck energies.

Mercury Retrograde helps us to see with new lens, to perceive differently, to go outside the old boxes.  It helps us to question a belief or direction we have chosen.

We then have the opportunity to change directions, to think and feel differently, or to end up feeling even more confident of what was previously chosen.

You can see why it is wise, with the eclipses and Mercury Retrograde to not jump to conclusions, or leap into anything.

All is in process now, and bottom line thinking is off its usual abilities.   Be patient and wait it out.  Before too long (sometime after Mercury goes back direct on September 22nd) renewed clarity and direction will surface from the fog.

In the global picture during this Eclipse Season and Mercury Retrograde:  the election process for President of the USA is getting even more mean spirited from both sides; a truce has been called in war torn Syria; North Korea is looking more dangerous than ever; the USA is  getting more estranged from China and some Asian nations like the Philippines; the economy  and stock market are showing signs of difficulty; Iran and the USA are sabre rattling with one another; and the Middle East in general feels like a kind of calm before the coming storms.

These issues will tend to build intensity this week with some kind of climax around the Lunar Eclipse.   Then all will begin to shift around the 22nd on Autumn Equinox with Mercury back Direct again.

Life as we know it is rapidly changing right before our eyes now, and we are only just in the beginning of the transformation.

We have a long way to go before we reach what is needed and aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

Things in some ways will get much worse, like with societal structures and institutions, which are decaying and self destructing.

But in the process we are as a human collective re-aligning with core principles and ideals.

We are reaching more up to the heavens of our divine nature, while at the same time getting more comfortable with our connection to sacred Mother Earth and her Natural rhythms.

We are honoring more our souls and spiritual natures, while learning to trust our bodies and their wisdom at the same time.

All is connected and working together for a common unity and evolutionary growth.

All is pointing toward the star of the Age of Aquarius.  It may not be exactly what each of us wants, but it will give us all exactly what we collectively need in our travels around the wheel of our Universe into a New Age.

Expect the unexpected and do not be too surprised if we before too long see the proof that we as Earthlings are not alone in the Universe.

Till next week,

Leo

Staying on the Path and Astrology Forecast September 4-10

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 3, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo has now passed, but we are still very much within the Eclipse Season. There is another eclipse on September 16: a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Pisces.

I know many of you noticed that right on the day of the eclipse on September 1 Hurricane Hermine hit Florida; there was a 7.2 Earthquake in New Zealand; and there was a terrorist attack in the Philippines.

The intensity was very strong leading up to the eclipse. Now as we are a few days past it, the intensity has lessened.    But that does not mean that powerful world events will stop too.  We can expect big world events to continue all the way through September at least.

In fact there was a 5.6 earthquake in Oklahoma on Saturday the 3rd of September.  The USA can now expect many important and potent events to occur in the country between now and August 21 2017, especially close to the actual date of August 21 2017.

On that date there will be a Total Eclipse of the Sun in Leo.  That eclipse will “travel” exclusively across the USA and will closely oppose the USA natal Moon in Aquarius.

The parts of the world that an eclipse travels over are the places most apt to experience the important events. The Moon in any natal chart is the planet that provides feelings of safety, comfort, and emotional well being. Those feelings will be challenged here in USA.

So expect our country to go through great change over the next year or more.  And of course the Presidential election will bring big change no matter who is elected, especially so if Donald Trump is elected.

Remember last year when I predicted with my planetary formula that Trump would win the Republican nomination, even though at the time he was one of 17 candidates and not even remotely considered a favorite to win.

I also wrote that Trump would likely win the Presidency if there were major events that would erupt in our country prior to the Presidential Election, events that would severely threaten USA security- like terrorist attacks or market crashes.

I believe that because Trump’s natal chart is closely tied to the USA natal Mars and Pluto, symbols of its power and strength in the world.

Eclipse season will either bring us such events or will at least give us some clues as to what to expect between now and the election.  And whomever becomes the next president will inherit a USA that will be going through major and difficult transformational change, especially leading up to the Total Eclipse on August 21 2017.

The structure of our world for an Age of Aquarius requires a world of equality and Diversity within Unity.  Many world changes will occur in order to make that happen.

We each individually will also be challenged to grow and transform during that time period.  All of this is a part of the accelerated change happening on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

This acceleration began in the early Spring 2014 when there was an eclipse that formed with other planets to become a Cardinal Grand Cross.

In the world at that time Islamic State invaded Mosul Iraq and declared itself a state and Caliphate in conjunction with its captured land in Syria.  This was the beginning of seeing the strength of Islamic State.

Also Russia at that time invaded Ukraine, upsetting the settled boundaries. This began a rift between western countries in Nato and Russia.

And China around that time was declaring land around the China Sea as its property against the beliefs of Philippines, Viet Nam and other Asian countries

Also soon after the Cardinal Grand Cross, there was a police killing of an unarmed black man in Ferguson Missouri that set off major riots.

All these issues are still unsettled and promise more potent events and transformational changes.

In our own lives most of us have entered into a New Chapter of our lives since March 2014. We have gone through much change, and in the process a letting go and releasing of that which represented the passing chapter in our lives.

The Universe is helping each one of us to transform our consciousness and lives in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

We are being shown the way to our more authentic Self and more authentic lives.  Homes, relationships, schooling, and careers have been changing as a result.

So now in the continuing process of transition into a New Season or Chapter of our lives, we become challenged to let go and release some more of what no longer fits who we are becoming.

And we will receive more magic, more synchronicity, more signs and symbols to inspire us on the path into our new consciousness and lives.

As we are still in Eclipse Season, while Mercury is Retrograde (till September 22), it is important for each of us to be flexible, to be more open in our hearts, and to not let our left brain logical minds to stress too much in order to squeeze out answers and solutions.

Let the process unfold over the next few weeks and be patient about receiving clarity  and direction.

This week we add a few new important planetary events.

The biggest is another exact square between Saturn and Neptune. As we explained in previous forecasts, there is a conflict between needs for security (Saturn) and desires for transformational change (Neptune).  Saturn is boundaries, rules, and regulations. Neptune is borderless, with needs to have more empathy and to trust and “let in”.

Issues in the world about immigrants and strict boundary control plays out within the USA and also within Europe, as well as with Islamic State changes of boundaries in Syria and Iraq.

In our personal lives our boundaries may be threatened by others; emotions may be out of control; ; conflicts between being firm and being empathic; and conflicts for following rules and being responsible versus wanting to escape so much anxiety and stress.

Also this week on Friday September 9 Jupiter enters Libra for a year, after having been in Virgo this past year.

Jupiter in Virgo is inspired by more order, efficiency, and logical analysis.  Jupiter in Libra is inspired by balance, equality, fairness, beauty, peace and most of all relationship.

This coming year is a good year to work on relationships of all kinds, and to find the connecting links between people and between all things.

Stay on your path this week no matter what is going on around you and inside you.

Till next week,

Leo
