Surfing Deeper Soul Waters and Astrology Forecast February 26- March 4

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on February 25, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Solar Eclipse this Sunday February 26 is at 9:58 AM EST.  That Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces floods the usually guarded gate between unconscious and conscious.  

This Eclipse is conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Neptune is the ruling planet of Pisces. So the Pisces issues go even  deeper and potentially more emotionally unstable.

Deep knowledge and deep truths are wanting to be acknowledged and made aware to our conscious minds and souls.

Dreams will be a good way to gain such awareness, so now is a good time to keep a journal next to your bed to write down your dreams upon waking.

And meditation is another way to more gracefully bring the unconscious and conscious together.

On the same day as the Solar Eclipse is a Uranus/Mars conjunction in Aries, which will be almost exactly opposite Jupiter in Libra.

That configuration is more outer directed, and suggests breaking away from old stuck boxes in one’s mind or life.  Relationships may be challenged to balance freedom or empowerment with staying in the relationship

That breakout from what keeps us chained gives us the opportunity for greater freedom and liberation.  But at the cost of stability and comfort.

So the few days surrounding the 26th may be more chaotic than usual.  The chaos for some will be more internal, hence the need for meditation and dream work.

For others there will be emotional upheaval of some sort, a releasing of previously controlled feelings.  Relationships could be the trigger for such emotional expression.

Since this Solar Eclipse New Moon is in Pisces, it is good now to better understand Pisces.

Pisces expects soul perfection as Virgo expects perfection on the material plane.

Pisces wants everyone to get along, to be connected in oneness, to be compassionate, to care more about giving than receiving.  Christ is an archetype of Pisces.

So you can see how Pisces is considered a dreamer.  It is not comfortable with a world or people who are harsh, selfish, dominating or controlling.

Can you also see how that can turn Pisces into seeing themselves as victims?

And since Pisces aspires to an idealistic image of how a human can be, it tends to suppress its more instinctual behaviors.

Pisces, as a result of being a dreamer, may turn to drugs or alcohol as an escape from the “real world”.  But a more aware Pisces will find a way to make their dreams come true and to combine reality with the dream.

And another healthy way for Pisces to be is to accept the world as it is, and to be satisfied with its own example of what the world could be idealistically- while at the same time not allowing itself to be victimized by that world.

So this Solar Eclipse is a good time to get in touch with one’s dreams of what it wants for itself and the world.

It is also a good time to deal with one’s ghosts or demons from the past, so one can move forward in one’s life with less baggage from that past.

Pisces at its best is sensitive and smooth, feeling its way through the greater flow of life.

The Mars/Uranus conjunction in Aries triggers action, not just internal movement.

The greater world may seem more chaotic than usual now, and breakdowns and breakthroughs may occur through events in the world.

Where people have been controlled and kept down, there is more desire now to break free.

“Conflict or Peace” may be a theme of this Mars/Uranus opposite Jupiter aspect. Keep a close watch on the world at large for indications of this.  This aspect will be pertinent all week long.

And in your own life, watch how relationships may teeter between conflict and peaceful resolution.

And since more on the unconscious wants to be made aware at this Pisces Solar Eclipse, deeper insights are more likely to arise to one’s consciousness.

And then what does one do when confronted with more insightful truth?  Does one act on it or not?

Another important aspect this week is Venus going Retrograde  on Saturday March 4. This will tie into the previously mentioned relationship challenges.

Venus goes retrograde around every one and a half years to two years or so.  Last time it was retrograde was in the summer of 2015.

It will stay retrograde this year from March 4- April 15.

Venus retrograde is a time when relationship issues come more into the light of consciousness.  Old patterns of relationship behavior can then get to a point where they cannot be tolerated anymore.

So couples can get more into crisis mode during Venus Retrograde, and have a greater sense of urgency to heal and fix the dysfunctional patterns.

People from the past come back into one’s consciousness during the retrograde period through dreams or waking memories, and those memories can help one to understand current relationship patterns better.

Sometimes the people from one’s past actually come back in the flesh, not just in memories or dreams.  So overall during Venus Retrograde there is reflecting on past relationships and applying those reflections to current situations and issues.

This is not only about “romantic” relationships, but can be about friendships or family members or people at work.   There is a need during Venus Retrograde to improve and even transform ways of relating that have not been working.

Since Venus begins its retrograde journey while in Aries, there is a need to look at one’s self needs, one’s empowerment and independence in contrast to needs to be in touch with a partner’s needs and the needs of the relationship itself.

Interestingly, Venus retrograde does slip into Pisces later in its retrograde journey, so the need for unity and connection then gets the spotlight.  And the balance between self interest and empowerment on the one hand with unity and connection on the other hand becomes really important to heal and work out effectively.

Keep in mind that Venus Retrograde is not usually a good time to make absolute relationship decisions like getting married or engaged or breaking up.

Let those ideas simmer until Venus goes back direct again in April. Then decisions or important events can be experienced.

So this week may have importance for relationships, of course romantic but yet any kind of relationship.

There is the eclipse on Sunday.  There is Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries opposite relationship oriented Jupiter in Libra.   And at the end of the week Venus goes retrograde.

Keep your center as well as you can and stay grounded.

Till next week,

Leo

Open the Gates of Change and Astrology Forecast February 19-25

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on February 18, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now in Pisces time of year, as the Sun moved into Pisces early morning on the 18th of February.

That means there is only one month left of Winter in the northern hemisphere of planet Earth.  Spring Equinox is on March 20.

So this week, starting on February 18, the Sun is in the last month of Winter while in Pisces.

At the same time this week, starting also on February 18,  we are entering the last quarter Moon phase before the New Moon Solar Eclipse on February 26.

So this week is a week of remembering and letting go of parts of the past.  We can go deeper inside ourselves and process what has been happening lately, and also what has happened in our more distant past.

Pisces is very sensitive and inner directed, and feels more comfortable in dreamy, poetic, and music based consciousness.

There is a desire to leave the conventional, accepted, and more harsh rules of living.  Pisces sees what can be a better world, and finds it sometimes difficult to be in “reality”.

So Pisces can be escapist and seek to avoid situations it is not comfortable in.

So you can use this week, if you can arrange it, to have plenty of time to go inward and to feel deeper realities.

If you cannot because of responsibilities in the “real” world, then find some time for meditation, music, art, spirituality, psychology, being aware of your dreams,  movies that have feelings and emotions, and time with others who are sensitive and deep.

When Spring comes it will then be time to take more direct action.

Most importantly this week however, is the fact that we are in between eclipses and preparing for the stronger of the 2 eclipses:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

The first eclipse was on February 10 in Aquarius/Leo.  It was a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.

Many people have since been shaken out of status quo thinking, and experienced breakdowns and/or breakthroughs of their lives or consciousness.  Change is certainly in the air.

That theme of transformational change continues as we move toward the Solar Eclipse and further into Eclipse Season.

If you were born in late February Pisces especially, you will be affected by this Solar Eclipse.  Those also born in late May Gemini, late August Virgo, or late November Sagittarius will also be more greatly affected.

I cannot state it strongly enough that we as a human family are in the middle of such great change and transformation.

It is not because Donald Trump became president.  It is the opposite:  Donald Trump is the president because of all the change that this world is ready for and needs

What his presidency represents is shaking up and waking up the whole world.   The potential for deep transformational change is greater than it has been in many, many years.

The Universe with its planetary alignments is creating the circumstances and events necessary for the change we are and will be going through.

This summer the changes will be even bigger as we experience in August two eclipses, including a most important Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo that will be the first Total Solar Eclipse to travel over the whole of the United States since 1918.

The way is opening up now, during these current eclipses, for the light of even greater change to pour through this Summer.

But now as we get ready to experience the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces next Sunday the 26th of February, we need to spend more time and energy being awake and present for the new light and love that is wanting to stream through our consciousness and lives.

Concentrate not so much on Donald Trump and how much you love or hate him.   His narcissism thrives on such attention.

Concentrate more on letting go of old stories and mental programs that have controlled your life.

You now have opportunity to release dysfunctional patterns of behavior and relating more than ever before.

Truth is wanting to shine through along with love, and that truth will assist you in your healing and transformational process.

There is ample evidence, for instance, that extraterrestrial visitations have been covered up by governments and former presidents.

There is so much we have been programmed to believe or not believe by our parents, schools, religions, and governments.

When you are ready to know the truth, the truth will be brought to you if you are awake and open-minded.

That does not mean it is right to accept all the crazy conspiracy theories that are out there.  Instead we each need to trust our own inner sources to find what is real and true.

As we let in more truth, love has a greater chance of being real and not just wishful dream-world romaniticizing.

As we let in more love, truth has a greater chance to be hopeful and optimistic, not cynical and hopeless.

Love and Truth together move mountains and allow us to have a healthier life and world.

As we move through this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces, expect the flow of watery feelings and insights to be really powerful and in some cases overwhelming.

Pisces is a soul oriented sign, and as such gets us to experience that which is deeper than our chattering and unfeeling minds.

Our true self is known more clearly from our hearts and souls than our minds.  The mind that is not connected to our hearts and souls is the breeding ground for a controlling ego.

Since Pisces is a mutable water sign, we can best navigate this Solar Eclipse by being flexible and open to change.

That does not mean one should totally surrender one’s control and stability, but it does mean one may get shaken up out of stuck and rigid places in one’s mind or life.

The energy of the eclipse will get more intense leading up to the eclipse, which happens on February 26 at 9:58 AM EST.

On the same day Mars will conjunct Uranus in Aries, which will give us events and/or mind frames that will break outside of old boxes and liberate us from that which has kept us stuck.

That Mars which is conjunct Uranus on the 26th is square to Guardian of the Underworld Pluto on the 22nd.

So the Uranus/Pluto square is triggered again, as well as the Cardinal T-square, which includes Jupiter in Libra in the mix.

All in All, it is time to let go of the old chapter in your life in a much bigger way, and to let in a new and more powerful chapter in your life and in the life of the country and world.

Much of what is breaking down from the past may not feel good, but when a storm comes through a town it does not only break down what is not wanted. “You can’t always get what you want”. But you get what you need.

The way needs to be cleared for new energies, for a new paradigm, for a New Age. And that is what is happening.

Till next week,

Leo

In the Middle of Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast Februay 12-18.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on February 11, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we are in between two eclipses.   The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo has passed, and the stronger Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces will not be here until February 26.

It will be stronger in part because Mars in Aries will be square Pluto just before it is conjunct Uranus in Aries on the 26th.

These Mars movements will trigger the powerful Cardinal T-Square of Jupiter in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries. That will accelerate the changes, the revolution and evolution of our consciousness and lives.

This week, though intensity should remain strong as it is part of  Eclipse Season, there will be a gradual “coming down” from the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon last week.

The issues that were brought up for you around the eclipse last week, will be ripe for processing and transforming.

Then at the Solar Eclipse New Moon on the 26th there will be a thrust forward with more action and even more intensity.

For now in your consciousness, do your best to not make absolute conclusions or rigid opinions.

Issues and ideas will unfold and be changeable now, and though one may want the security of having a set agenda, it is best to surrender to the greater energies during this Eclipse Season.

In the greater world, this Eclipse Season has brought on strong counteractions to the Trump administration’s agenda.  For instance, the courts have denied him the ability to stop the flow of immigrants into the country.

You can know for sure that this presidential administration will continue to face enormous backlash against its policies and actions.

We can now see how easy it will be for traditional and long set USA policies and protocols to fall away and in some instances crash.

The election of Trump showed us that the process of transformation into an Age Of Aquarius will not be graceful.

The United States will have many breakdowns of old ways, both good and bad, while at the same time trying to recapture the principles and values that formed America in its beginnings.

Europe will also be trying to find its identity during the next few years, and the turn to nationalism there and in America is part of that process.

Remember in the bigger picture we are moving into an age of Equality and Diversity within Unity, so anything that develops that appears to be going in an opposite direction is temporary and just part of the process.

Attempts to go back to old ways of Super Powers and exclusiveness are on the way out.  These attempts to go back to those old ways will be short lived and on a deeper level part of reintegrating what was good about the past that has been “thrown out with the bath water”.

Those original American principles of the Constitution and Bill of Rights have been eroding through the years, and they are needing to be found again for the rebirth part of its transformation into an Age of Aquarius.

On a personal level we are all being challenged to stay on our path, keeping and even firming up our own values.

This new administration is a part of the Universe’s challenge to us to not let fear and hatred take us off course.

If we are now afraid and feel hopeless or victimized and keeping our hatred alive; we are moving into the same mind frame as those we are hating and feeling powerless to.

We can now deepen our connections to Source and the Universe, strengthen our commitment to the world we envision, and be a part of a growing movement of revolution.

Just as our ancestors started a revolution from the grip of a King’s’ authority, so now can we do the same in our own way.

Keep your view of the bigger picture, strengthen your resolve for transformational change, and deepen your spiritual connection. Concentrate on those things and you will stay out of a personal inner hell.

This week as we move “down” from last week’s Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, we begin to get ready for the more powerful eclipse on February 26.

On Thursday February 16 the Moon goes into Scorpio for a few days, to begin a process of going deeper into your soul, your emotions and feelings, and your inner spiritual depths.

On Saturday February 18, while the Moon is still in Scorpio, the Sun will begin its annual journey through Pisces.

Scorpio and Pisces are both deep water signs, so you will be prompted to go inside yourself more.

Later that same day as the Moon moves into Sagittarius it will create the 4th quarter Moon, which begins the last quarter of the lunar cycle.

That 4th quarter beginning will open up the way to a need to finish things up in preparation for the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

What parts of your current life need to change now?

Is it your attitudes and beliefs?  Is it the patterns of your relationships?  Is there a need to change your home or homelife?  Do you feel good about fulfilling your sense of purpose?

Just like in the 60’s and 70’s, all parts of one’s life may be challenged to change.

Back then as now, if our relationships feel empty, without soul and spirit, they will need to change or be ended.

If we do not feel heart connection to our jobs or place where we live, we may need to make changes.

You will know when and if it is time to make the changes, as life and the Universe will bring you the events or inner stirrings that show you the way.

You will not need to contrive the changes or “push the river” t0 move forward before it is time.

Eclipse Seasons often bring the events or inner stirrings for change, but it usually does not mean change comes all at once.

If the events or inner promtings come to you it is best to pay heed, as it is better to initiate change than have it thrown at us. Yet sometimes it is “fated” to come to us when we least expect it.

The more connected we each are to our inner light the better, and that is strengthened with an inner anchor inside.

Till next week,

Leo

Land of the Free and Astrology Forecast February 5-11.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is a very meaningful week as we move through our first of two eclipses this month.

For those who have been sleep walking through life in their own little bubble, it will be time to wake up this week.

It is not difficult now-a-days to get into a bubble, as drug and technology addictions tend to create protective separations from life and people.

But during an Eclipse Season, as it is now, status quo stances are broken down and consciousness breakthroughs occur more frequently.

This week, to go along with the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on Friday, Jupiter changes direction and goes Retrograde; Mercury enters Aquarius; and the Sun sextiles Uranus.

That Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is in Aquarius/Leo on Friday February 10 at 7:33 PM EST.  The Sun is therefore in Aquarius, the Moon is in Leo, and both Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aquarius make aspect to that Full Moon.

The old chapter of life will already start to seem like a distant past.

We let you know that this Eclipse Season would bring the first true challenges to the Trump adminstration’s agendas.

And now a judge in Washington state has put a stop to the Trump executive order to put a hold on immigration from certain countries.

It should become more clear than ever this Eclipse Season that the Trump presidency is a big trigger for world change.   It is also a time when more and more people will wake up and be determined to make a difference in this world.

The Aquarius/Leo Lunar Eclipse shows big egos (Leo) facing challenges from the community (Aquarius).

Jupiter and Uranus making aspect to that Lunar Eclipse bring  expansive energy (Jupiter) and transformational breakthroughs (Uranus).

Aquarius also represents a world collective, which will greatly challenge executive control by the USA President (Leo).

Iran already is letting the USA president know it will not bow down to its demands.

President Trump has Leo rising in his natal chart, with Mars in Leo conjunct that rising sign.

Please don’t get me wrong however about the sign Leo.  All people with the sign Leo strongly placed in their natal chart do not develop narcissism.

But they do demand attention.  And they also shine a bright light of hope and positivity.

The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo, and of course quite arguably the Sun is the most important planet in our solar system.  It provides warmth and light and a strong center for all the other planets that revolve around it.

Now if that Sun  had an ego it might look at itself as a great entity more important than all others.  So you can see how big the ego can potentially grow into with the sign Leo.

But if those with strong Leo placements stay in their hearts (which is their natural place) they become creative light and love spread all around.

But if they take their accolades from others into their heads and not their hearts, they can then develop monstrous egos, both positive and negative ones.

Presidents Obama and Clinton are both Sun in Leo people.

So at this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo, balance the needs of social consciousness (Aquarius) with needs for personal importance (Leo).

Keep in mind that Leo is not lesser in value than Aquarius.   Aquarius without Leo would be like a train without an engine, or a body without a heart, or a solar system without a Sun.

The needs of the many are so important, but individual energetic expression provides the fuel for all to be energized.

Jupiter changing directions on Monday this week provides us with expansive, upward moving energy.  It gives us a bigger and more meaningful perspective to life.

Mercury leaving linear logical Capricorn for inventive “outside the box” Aquarius for around a month, provides us the ability to free ourselves from stuck places in our minds.

Mercury moves into Aquarius on Tuesday February 7.

On February 9 the Sun sextiles Uranus.  The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo and Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius.  So the same themes from the Full Moon prevail.

In this case the Sun is the center and Uranus is what shakes up the center.   So expressing oneself as being different and countercultural may be a result of this aspect- as well as a result of the Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo.

The new administration is trying to firm up control by the executive branch of government (Leo).  The congress (Aquarius) is a constitutional counter to that executive power.    And of course  “the people” (Aquarius) of this country are supposed to be the real power of this country.

It is really interesting that the USA natal Moon is at 26 degrees of Aquarius in the 3rd house.  The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse this week is at 22 degrees of Aquarius/Leo, so it is making a strong aspect to the USA  natal Moon.

The Moon in a natal chart represents the inner values, and in the USA we have our constitutional Aquarian values: liberty, freedom of speech, diversity in unity, and the power of the people.

So now President Trump is trying to make himself, as the top executive, the greatest power of the country.  And now the power of the people will challenge that executive power and seek to bring us back to our deeper values.

Remember that America began with a revolution of democratic values(Aquarius) against the King of England (Leo).

President Trump, who has been a powerful business executive, will be continuing to challenge the inner values of the United States by attempting to be a kind of King of America.

This coming August will bring an even more powerful eclipse: A Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo that travels all across America for the first time since 1918.

That Eclipse will be opposite the USA natal moon in Aquarius, even closer than the one this week.  Trump’s natal Mars will be conjunct that very powerful Solar Eclipse.

We will analyze that more as we get closer to August.

For this week, stay poised to move with change and to let go of old patterns and habits.  Old programmed beliefs and attitudes can be let go now and more light from the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius can be let in.

This week those who have planets in Leo and Aquarius will be most affected, and those with planets in Taurus and Scorpio will be largely very affected also.

Till next week,

Leo
