Out with the Old, In with the New, and Astrology Forecast July 30-August 5

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now pretty solidly into the Eclipse Season, even though we have not yet experienced the first eclipse yet.  It will be on August 7, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius.

We entered Eclipse Season at the Leo New Moon on July 23. It is the first of two Leo New Moons, the 2nd one a powerful Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.

The sign Leo at its worst is big Ego,  and dominating personality.

So last week not long after the Leo New Moon we are introduced to Anthony Scaramucci, the new Communications Director of the White House; and General John Kelly, the new White House Chief of Staff.  These are dominating men for sure, with large egos.

This shows us Trump wants to get even more dominating and fascistic in his governance. They, especially Scaramucci, will be mini-me’s of Trump.

Also this last week to start up the Eclipse Season, North Korea tested a missile that is said to be able to reach New York and even Chicago.   And Iran also tested a a long range missile this last week.

And in Israel/Palestine much violence has been erupting around Temple Mount and Al Aqsa Mosque praying compound for Muslim worship. This is an especially holy place for both Israel and the Arab world and very hotly disputed for who has ownership.

From a much more positive viewpoint this past week, pointing us to the Age of Aquarius:  The UN has stated it wants to ban pesticides, which will negatively affect Monsanto; and Tesla is intending to mass produce battery operated cars at an affordable price. Also the attempt of pushing through an even worse health care plan was defeated in the Senate. I know the day is not far away when single payer health insurance will be what the USA has in place for universal health care.

As we often state, there is the old world which will now come at us in an often monstrous way in order to show us what we need to get rid of in our world; while the light of the new world comes pouring in to show us what is coming in from the Age of Aquarius.

Look at your own life that way too.  Stay present to see old ways of being in your life that need to be released.  And open up to embrace new ways that are more healthy for you, are aligned with your authenticity, and are connected to the new age we are moving into.

We are all going through this process to some extent, and now in Eclipse Season, there will be events and inner stirrings that will accelerate the process of transformation.

The events from the old world are and will continue to be events that can evoke great fear in us. We must stay connected to the bigger picture, to the Universe and to love and trust in our hearts. The focus cannot be on the fear or hatred.

Trump’s administration, from both a negative and positive standpoint, is weakening the standing of the USA in the world.  The positive part of that is that the USA is moving toward being an equal member of the world community.  President Obama was moving in that direction already.

Now this administration is taking us temporarily backwards into “America First” and dominance, not relationship with the rest of the world.

This is and will continue to cause countries like Iran and North Korea to want to flex their military muscles. This old attitude will also tend to move us toward a greater likelihood of war.

As we have said before, this month of August is a major turning point to show us what direction we are moving in with our military and economy.

And of course that military and economy are what make up the Military/Industrial Complex that dominates the USA and world.  It is what will need to break down in order for the USA and world to transform into the Age of Aquarius.

This coming week, just before the Lunar Eclipse next week, brings us Venus moving into Cancer;  Uranus changing directions to Retrograde;and Jupiter square Pluto.

Venus moves into Cancer this Monday July 31. It will stay in Cancer until August 26. While in Cancer, the planet of love and relationship seeks a nurturing kind of loving, one that is understanding, supportive, and soul connected.  If your relationships lack this quality, it will be much more evident this month.

You may not be giving others this nurturance, but even more likely you are not receiving this nurturance.

On August 2/3 Uranus stops and then goes from Direct to Retrograde.  When a planet changes directions its energy and purpose are in the spotlight of our lives.

Uranus acts contrary to the accepted and often conventional ways, it rules rebellion and revolution. Uranus also wants liberation from anything and anyone that “chains” it up.

Uranus takes us outside of any boxes of thinking we have been stuck in, helping us to think inventively about possibilities.

And of course Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius, so let it help you this week to get you out of ruts and old stuck ways. It can then help you to further your movement toward new ways, even if those new ways are not considered “normal” by society, family, or even yourself.

Surprising events in the world may also occur.  And for this Uranus movement and for Eclipse Season in general, natural calamities are more likely, like Earthquakes, Hurricanes, etc.

Jupiter square Pluto on Friday August 4 is the most intense and powerful aspect this week. It is an appetizer to the Lunar Eclipse next Monday the 7th.

It is important this month to allow yourself to let go and take the ride.  Try not to judge too much, make absolute pronouncements or decisions. Let it all play out and do your best to trust the process.

This advice will be especially pertinent with Mercury going Retrograde on August 12, in between the two eclipses.

Do your best not to fret or look down for long.  No one event or thought or emotional eruption is the end of any story, so to speak.  Let it all play out.

This is an important month for motivating us to commit ever more strongly to our own growth and evolution, to our contribution to our world in its journey into an Age of Aquarius.

There will be magic, synchronicity, and symbols from the Universe this month.  There will be shows of love you did not expect.  There will be times when you can clearly see there is a new world we are moving into.

The trick is to concentrate on those things, not focus on what will bring you more fear and worry.  It is true the old world will be showing its worst face and attempting to keep the old paradigm alive.

So it is our role to show the new world’s best face and to make sure we connect with the new paradigm being born.

Eclipse Season Begins and Astrology Forecast July 23-29.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 22, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We enter Eclipse Season this week, as it begins at the Leo New Moon Sunday July 23 at 5:46 AM EDT.

There will be more pop to this Leo New Moon than the usual Leo New Moon because Mars is conjunct that New Moon.

Mars will stay in the spotlight most all this week, as it continues conjunction with the Sun through mid week.

Leo New Moon seeks to bring us to opening our hearts to “in the moment” creative space. Leo is energetically at its best when it is unselfconscious and thus spontaneously shining expressively from the heart.

This is not the Venus part of the heart which seeks to make relationship.  The Solar (Sun is the ruler of Leo) heartspace is about pure self expression.  Of course Leo does want to influence people, but relationship is not its priority.

At its worst Leo looks in the proverbial mirror to admire itself, and then its pure expression is tainted by being self conscious.  At its very worst its’ gaze at its’ reflection creates narcissism.

Leo is like a very young child who spontaneously expresses itself, wants to have fun, and gazes over its shoulder to see if people are looking and admiring her.

So with Mars in Leo conjunct the New Moon in Leo, a healthy response is to be open hearted in expression, having fun, and being naturally creative by being spontaneously “in the moment”.  Creative endeavors and projects get the green light after this.

The Mars part of this formation brings more force to the expression, more self assertion and being true to self.

The Mars conjunct Leo New Moon can also bring more conflict, more harshness, and more forceful egocentricity.

On the world stage big egos will strut and challenge other big egos to a duel, which in the modern world can bring dangerous conflicts or wars.

In past writing I have shown all the Mars aspects coming with this Eclipse Season, especially around August 21, at the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo.

The natal Mars of Trump, Netanyahu, and Israel will be in extremely close conjunction with that Eclipse.  

For the USA, Saturn changing directions will be in very close aspect to the USA natal Mars in Gemini, which is quite close to Trump’s Sun in Gemini.  This will be around the time of the Total Solar Eclipse.

And North Korea and Syria’s natal charts have very close conjunctions to this Eclipse also.

For the next couple of months there is a strong possibility of major conflict breaking out in our world, a conflict that could have a domino effect on many countries.

This is not for sure, but bears close attention.  And after this Leo New Moon on the 23rd, we will be able to see what potential outbreaks become more likely.

Issues could fizzle, it is true, but also there is strong possibility something will be ignited, much stronger than usual.

Many of my readers have known for awhile of this time.  We will be challenged, so we can upgrade our consciousness and talents.  Then we will be ready to make our contribution to our human family, as it faces its great challenges.

The “old gods” from an old paradigm are flexing their muscles and digging in, so they and their paradigm can continue.  They use fear, shame, and guilt to keep us stuck in the old world.  They will try to trigger our rage and hatred toward others in order to keep them in power.

The new gods and goddesses, so to speak, bring love and truth with them, motivating us to more pure self expression and more clarity of purpose for our new age.

They show us that all and everyone is connected in unity, diversity within unity for the Age of Aquarius.

We will need to keep our energy portals, our chakras, open to the new energies, new consciousness, to more love and light.

It will be part of our personal challenge to combine our love with our own power. We must get over the fear of our own power, as love without personal power and truth is weak and diffuse.

This is not power over anyone, but instead personal empowerment that has the force and passion to stand strong and vital and to meet the challenges thrown our way.

I know many of you have been recently undecided and unclear about making decisions and choosing direction for your life.

We have apparently been waiting for the outbreak and awakening to happen, that which changes all our lives.

This is either that time now, or it is the trigger to open the passageways for that which is close to becoming reality soon.

Or maybe this time we come close to outbreak, then back off and diffuse the energies of combat for now.

No matter what happens, we are in this Eclipse Season at a major turning point in our collective human lives and evolution.

Concentrate at this Leo New Moon on opening your heart and solar plexus, expressing your authentic self, and empowering yourself.

The day before this New Moon, the day of this New Moon, and the day after, with the Moon dark; you have much power to visualize, to create, to make strong intention and prayer.

Late Wednesday the 26th of July, Mars is conjunct the Sun in Leo.  This gives your self expression, self honoring, and empowerment a jolt of energy and vitality. Do not be afraid of your power or ego.

You have grown enough to be able to integrate it with all that you are. If you are committed to your higher soul self as your guide and leader, then your ego will serve it not dominate it.

On Monday July 24 Venus will oppose Saturn.  That means we are ready to set strong boundaries in our relationships, and ready to end relationships or its dysfunctional relationship patterns. We are also ready to make relationship commitments, if that is appropriate at this time.

On July 25 Mercury (mind and communication) leaves creative Leo, and enters analytical Virgo. On August 12, while still in Virgo, Mercury goes Retrograde.

It will be Retrograde when the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo forms. It goes back direct on September 5, while still in Eclipse Season.

So get your motor running this weekend at the Leo New Moon, then get moving forward this week.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses:

Till next week,

Leo

Gettin’ Ready and Astrology Forecast July 16-22.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 15, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

On Sunday July 16 we enter- for a week- the 4th quarter and last quarter of the lunar cycle. This lunar cycle began at the New Moon in Cancer on June 23.  And it ends next Sunday July 23 at the Leo New Moon.

This passing lunar cycle has been a time of finding nurturance, support, feelings of home, family, and inner wholeness.

At the Leo New Moon on the 23rd of July, there will be a shift.  That Leo New Moon brings in the first winds of Eclipse Season, and will shift our energies into more fiery creative self expression, more action, more hope, and greater motivation to “succeed”.

Yet the 4th quarter time this week, which precedes that Leo New Moon, , the first of two Leo New Moons in a row, will be more energized and active than most 4th quarter time periods.

That is because this 4th quarter begins with the Moon in active willful Aries; then continues with the often chaotic Mars square Uranus this Monday the 17th; Sun squaring Uranus on the 20th while Mars goes into Leo; and the Sun moving into Leo a couple days before the New Moon in Leo.

4th quarter lunar cycles are a time of “coming down”, finishing up, gathering, cleaning up, and getting ready for the new beginnings of a New Moon.

And of course that theme continues for this 4th quarter lunar cycle, but there will also be more energy for that “finishing up” purpose this week.

And of course since this is a getting ready for Eclipse Season, there also should be more stirring up, and the beginnings of seeing what Eclipse Season might be like for each of us.

I know some people get scared about these Eclipse Seasons, but having consciously experienced many of them through the years, I can assure you that usually they are not as bad as many fear.

Yes for sure most of us will be taken out of our usual balance, will be shifting in consciousness and energetically, will release and let go some things, and will be more ready for handling change.

But most will not lose their jobs, relationships, or homes during an Eclipse Season. And they will not be destroyed and die.  And the world will not come to an end.

Yet for sure this Eclipse Season will at least be a turning point time in our individual lives, and of course in our global experience too.

There will likely be an experience of getting over the hump and knowing there is no path to going back to how it used to be.  Our New Chapter in life is becoming our “new normal” and we need to own that.

In our global experience, the Trump factor has been changing our world appreciably, and on the surface it looks pretty bad.  Remember in the bigger picture he is the vehicle for this transformation that our human family needs right now in order to wake up and make the needed changes.

America is in the process of  becoming an equal member of nations, which aligns with the Age of Aquarius.

I am sure most of you wish it would be happening in a way that didn’t make the country an embarrassment in the world, and didn’t put us in such a dangerous position; yet this is how it needs to be right now.

Our country and world have been coasting without awareness through a dysfunctional and toxic human condition for a long time now.  The values of this country have been eroding for many years, but so slowly that many have not been paying attention.

Now more and more people are waking up and seeing, feeling and knowing that our human family is in real trouble.   Deep transformation and healing are urgently needed.

And this Eclipse Season, whatever events it brings to us, will show us how much we need to make big important changes.

Our economy is not equitable and all too often the greedy are the ones most rewarded in this system. Bernie Sanders represented a waking up of the people in the USA to lack of balance and fairness in the economy.

Will the stock market crash happen during or not long after this coming Eclipse Season? Better chance than usual it will.

But if not now, it will happen relatively soon, before summer of 2018 in my estimation.  And Eclipse Seasons, as they represent often drastic change, give us a better chance of something like that happening.

And the Military, the other half of the Economic/Military complex that largely rules this world,  will show change this Eclipse Season, especially so as the USA Mars is triggered by transiting Saturn; Trump and Netanyahu’s Mars’ are triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, and Israel’s Mars is also triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21.

Does this mean there is serious conflict brewing? Probably yes.  It does not, however, necessarily mean actual war will erupt soon.   But it has a greater likelihood being triggered during or soon after the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo than usual.

The Military/Economic complex that President Eisenhower warned us about is more powerful than ever, and it must be transformed somehow in order for us to evolve into what is needed for the coming Age of Aquarius.

We can only pray it happens as gracefully as possible.

Whether gracefully or not, Trump sure shows us more likelihood of its dismantling.  He is like Caligula or Nero as the Roman Empire began to dissolve.

But, nevertheless, each of us needs to put our concentration on transforming our own consciousness and life.

As you let go of the programming from society and family of your mind and heart, you transform and evolve.

As  you awaken to truth, you evolve and transform.

As you trust that you live in a meaningful and sometimes magical Universe you transform and evolve.

As you open to your authentic Self, and to living a more purposeful life, you transform and evolve.

As you realize we are all brothers and sisters of the same human family, you transform and evolve.

As you extricate yourself from believing that being rich and famous is the holy grail, you transform  and evolve.

As you let go the consciousness of superior/inferior, predator/prey and victim/perpetrator for our human condition you transform and evolve.

As you know love is the true healer, you transform and evolve.

As you know we all live in a meaningful Universe, you evolve and transform.

As you realize all is connected, all seeming opposites are meant to be joined in wholeness like the yin/yang symbol,  you transform and evolve.

As you experience that Soul is real and guides our life journey, you transform and evolve.

And now the transformation is accelerated, as during Eclipse Seasons the wheels of the Universe turn with more music, light, love, and magic than usual.

It is the blocks to that light that hold everything back and cause breakdowns and difficulties.

When we  trust and surrender, we better allow our blocks to be cleared, so that the music, light, love and magic can come pouring through.

And next Sunday the 23rd begins the Eclipse Season with the New Moon in Leo.

Talk with you then,

Leo

We will do a video in July for the important August Total Solar Eclipse and Eclipse Season.  We will have a new website up to view in July also.

In the Arms of the Universe and Astrology Forecast July 9-15

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on July 8, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this forecast/blog, we are still several hours before the Full Moon in Capricorn, which is at 12:07 AM on the 9th of July EDT. This has been a rather sobering and sometimes intense full moon experience for many.

A Capricorn Full Moon is often sobering, but there has been an added edginess to this one, and that is because Pluto is conjunct the Moon and opposite the Sun of this Full Moon.

Pluto of course is the guardian of the underworld, and as such it holds what is lying deep inside our bodies and souls.

In a civilized world, humans have learned to bury their more basic instincts, and hide, even from themselves any emotions that can be seen as negative, like rage, jealousy, shame, envy, greed, lustful feelings, panic, or desperation.

And of course many of those more primal instincts can be very destructive to self, others, or society.

Freud gave those instincts the term “Id”, which he said could be controlled by one’s “superego”, which is our moral compass or conscience.

Pluto, guardian of the underworld, guards our more primal “Id” instincts, and our repressed memories from earlier wounds and traumas.

So when Pluto is around by transit, it can bring up that which we have held down deep inside of us.

If someone says something that pushes our buttons, our usually controlled emotions or instincts may erupt.

Perhaps we will express in passive-agressive ways, or through sarcasm, but often anger/rage, in whatever form, is the result of Pluto triggering our suppressed or repressed instincts or emotions.

Whenever I see Pluto being activated in a chart or activating a chart I know there may be something normally held back, or made secret, that will be expressed.  When I see a combination of Mars and Pluto together, I know something explosive is likely to be expressed.

And I usually watch Mars, Pluto, or Pluto/Mars combinations when looking at a nation’s chart or the leader of a nation’s chart.

In August, at the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo, Trump’s Mars will be in conjunction with that Eclipse.  The eclipse is at 28+ degrees of Leo, and Trump’s Mars is at 26+ degrees of Leo, a relatively close conjunction.

Bibi Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, also has his Mars at 26+ degrees of Leo, so he and Trump will always have their Mars triggered at the same time, and this eclipse is one of those times.

To add to this series of connections, Israel from its natal chart of May 14, 1948 has its Mars at 28+ degrees of Leo, exactly conjunct the Total Solar Eclipse. And the USA Mars will be in almost exact alignment with Saturn that day.

And another strange connection between Trump and Netanyahu, especially so at the Solar Eclipse this August, is that both were born on days of eclipses:  Netanyahu at a Solar Eclipse in Libra, and Trump at a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.  Trust me, it is rather rare for someone to be born on the day of an eclipse of any kind.

So we can expect some kind of important turning point to occur for both Israel and the USA near the date of the Solar Eclipse in August.   And whatever it is, it will have to do with something militaristic.

Now that could also mean military is calmed down or held back, but more likely it is activated then in some important way.

And these turning point events do not have to be right on the Eclipse, but within a month or so either way.

Let’s look at this coming week:  This week we begin to come down from the Capricorn Full Moon by Tuesday or Wednesday.  After that, until the next New Moon, in Leo on July 23, we contract, ease up, and gather and center ourselves.

That New Moon in Leo on the 23rd will bring in the first breezes or perhaps winds of Eclipse Season.

Please remember;  all that will happen is necessary to the transformation into an Age of Aquarius.

Our human family, even the most stubborn of us, need to know the old ways must be released forever if we are to survive and evolve.

Dog eat dog, every man for himself, take all you can get, win at all costs belief systems need to be buried.

Believing we live in a meaningless, disconnected Universe that only offers random events, and “scientific” proofs needs to be released.

Believing some are superior and  others inferior in value in our human family has seen its time pass.

Using and abusing the Earth for what we can get from her, and without care for her is killing life on this planet.

Continuing to make our material needs more important than our souls kills our connections to one another, to God/Goddess, to the Universe, and to Nature.

We are on the threshold of an Age of Aquarius, and we are so much closer than it seems on the surface.

So know where we are headed, and get your consciousness and actions aligned with this New Age of Aquarius.

Concentrate on Love and Truth.  Open up to the Light of new consciousness wanting to pour through our veins.  Release the blocks. Clear your chakras. Open your mind and heart, think for your self, feel your truth, make intention to express your authenticity and purpose, be awake to the signs and symbols and synchronicities.

Know all is connected and meaningful, no matter how it looks on the outside, send away your fears and do not feed your hatreds.

We are safe in the arms of the Universe, let go and feel it.

Till next week,

Leo

Resting Up and Astrology Forecast July 2-8.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 1, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Cancer New Moon on June 23.  So thus we are waxing our way up to the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 7/8.

So this week we are only 3 weeks away from the intial winds of Eclipse Season. Then the 1st eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon will be on August 7.  The 2nd eclipse, a most powerful Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo will be on August 21.

These Eclipse Seasons usually happen twice a year, with 2 eclipses in each season.

Eclipse Seasons begin two weeks or so before the first eclipse in a season, and extend to at least two weeks after the last eclipse in a season. These seasons are almost always big turning points in world and personal affairs.

The last Eclipse season was from January 27- March 27 2017.

The Eclipse Seasons often have breakdowns of old habits, patterns, beliefs, and sometimes even breakdowns in relationships, jobs, families, and home lives.

But just as frequently there are usually breakthroughs into awakened thoughts and new ways of living, better relationships, jobs and home lives.

Change is quite frequent during Eclipse Seasons, and much of that change can become transformational, and can open one up to healing of old wounds and traumas.

Keeping status quo is difficult during an Eclipse Season, and usually some part of one’s life will show big movement and change, even if it is one’s belief systems or ways of perceiving one’s life.

Often the issues that are ripe for change and transformation show up before the Eclipse Season, but the intensity of need for their transformation heats up appreciably during the Season, and especially so close to the actual Eclipse event.

If a country or person has any of their personal natal planets in close aspect to the sign and degree of the Eclipse, then that country or person will be most challenged with issues that require one’s close attention.

For instance the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21 will be at almost 29 degreees of Leo.  Donald Trump’s natal Ascendent is at 29 + degrees of Leo and his Mars is at almost 27 degrees of Leo.

So his rising sign, which signifies how he interacts with his world, and his Mars, which signifies how he asserts, fights, and defends himself, are in self involved Leo.

Leo expresses openly and creatively, but when out of balance expresses in a totally self centered way, which if taken to the limit becomes narcissism.

That Leo part of his disposition will be triggered around the eclipse, and since specifically his Mars in Leo will be triggered, he will be vociferously fighting or defending himself (even more than usua), and not unlikely will be using that aggression as Commander in Chief of the United States military.

If your own natal planets will be triggered, you too will have parts of your psyche and life activated and put in the spotlight for change and transformation.

If you have planets from 26 degrees Leo to 1 degree of Virgo you will be greatly affected by that Total Solar Eclipse on August 21.   If you have planets from 26 degrees of Aquarius to 1 degree of Pisces you will be at least substantially affected.

If you have planets from 26 degrees of Taurus to 1 degree of Gemini or 26 degrees of Scorpio to 1 degree of Sagittarius you will be at least somewhat affected.

And of course all of us will be affected by the eclipses as citizens of the world, and most especially the USA where this Total Eclipse will be seen.

World events that are warm now will be much hotter during the actual Eclipse Season, which will begin around the Leo New Moon on July 23.

For now find what nurtures you and helps you to feel safe and loved.  Gather yourself and solidify what is important to you.

It is Sun in Cancer time of year when nature is abundant and the needs for nurturance and unconditional love are at their highest.   What signifies home and family to you needs to be experienced before Eclipse Season begins.

The most vulnerable in our world will need the most care now: our children, our elderly, our wounded, our innocent animals.

This week begins rather intensely as Mars opposes Pluto on Sunday July 2.  Be careful to not emotionally overreact reacting to situations and people.

Also this week, as the Moon gets brighter and brighter on its way to a full moon, Venus will move from Taurus to Gemini on the 4th of July, and will stay in Gemini until July 31.

As Venus moves out of Taurus and into Gemini, it leaves its priority being for physical comfort and care, and for monetary and relationship security.

Its new priority becomes being social and gaining intellectual stimulation, being light and free spirited, and open to being a social butterfly.

On July 5 Mercury leaves Cancer and enters Leo, where it will stay until July 25.

When in Cancer, Mercury’s mental tendencies are to combine its head with its feelings, and sometimes to be confused between thinking and feeling.

As Mercury, the planet of  thinking and communicating, shifts into Leo,  fun creative thinking and openly sharing of ideas become greater priorities.

And at the end of this week,  there is a Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn on July 8 overnight into July 9 at 12:07 AM EDT.

Nurturance and inner values (Cancer) are needing to be balanced with needs for accomplishment and outer validation of one’s efforts (Capricorn).

Balance is also needed between permissive unconditional allowing attitudes (Cancer), with strict guidelines and rules and clear boundaries (Capricorn).

The actual Full Moon has Pluto conjunct the Moon in Capricorn which increases the emotional intensity and opens things up to transformation through catharsis.

Full Moon have an energetic effect a day or two before full moon, on the date of the full moon and up to two days after.  This Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn can also bring up parental issues and can make clear what iis needed for greater stability in one’s life.

The next full moon will be on August 7, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.

Time now to nurture and stabilize before the intensity increases in Eclipse Season.

Till next week,

Leo

We will do a video in July for the important August Total Solar Eclipse and Eclipse Season.  We will have a new website up to view in July also.

There is a video now of my recent talk at the Enlightenment Expo that my friend Jonne Trees has recorded:     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D52FYcHTM3U.

The subject is about navigating the planetary changes this year.

Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created recently- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2WIRHQ5IQ

If you need any help with your relationship now, I have done couples’ counseling for many years. Do you need to identify and work out old patterns? Do you need to decide whether to stay or go?  I use the astrological model to help in the counseling process. We can use Skype if outside New England. Write me at soulus@aol.com if interested.
