Enter the Mystery and Astrology Forecast October 28- November 3.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is rather slow,  astrologically speaking.   There are no major planetary movements or motivators.   

Nevertheless, the pull downward and inward is powerful this week. The vast majority of planets are in yin signs: Water and Earth.

The 4th and last quarter of the current lunar cycle begins on Wednesday October 31st, adding to the downward theme.  Of course this means that the Moon is dimming in light more every day, until the turning point back to increasing light at the New Moon in Scorpio next week on November 7.

When the 4th quarter begins on October 31, we will be into Halloween that day.

More meaningfully October 31 is Samhain, a day honored as sacred by humans for many decades before our current time period.

Samhain is approximately half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice so is a yearly turning point to greater darkness and inward turning.

It is also recognized as a time when the veils between worlds is the thinnest.

To some that means that souls “on the other side” of the veil, are more easily contacted.  Spirits of the deceased are said to be more available to connect with then.

So Halloween’s ghosts and goblins and scary costumes are the modern answer to the sacred time of Samhain.

This is Sun in Scorpio time of year too, and Scorpio is ruled by the planet Pluto, known as the Guardian of the Underworld.

So the pull inward and yin-ward is strong this week, further enhanced by the Moon dimming its light as it passes through the last quarter of its cycle.

The Moon has a 28-29 day cycle, similar to a woman’s menstrual cycle, giving women an intimate connection with the Moon.

And Venus, another planetary representative of the Feminine, is still Retrograde in Scorpio, keeping it in the spotlight of our consciousness.

Overall this week, it is not a good time for goal orientation, or for focus on agenda or outer success.

It is much more a time for soul care, for deep feelings, inner healing, relationship care, inner insights, and nurturing for those in need.

Next week, after November 7, is the time for new beginnings at the New Moon in Scorpio. And on November 8 Jupiter leaves its year long journey in primal Scorpio.  It enters light inducing Sagittarius that day, where it will stay for a year

Interestingly, the day before the New Moon in Scorpio and two days before Jupiter enters Sagittarius, we have an important Election Day on November 6.

As we get closer to that Election Day, the current American civil war brought us mailings of pipe bombs this last week.

These mailings were sent to Democrats who have shown their opposition to President Trump.  As of this writing, a Trump supporting Florida man has been captured as a prime suspect in these crimes.

Election Day next week will bring a climax to recent confrontations between opposing political factions in the USA.

The New Moon in Scorpio the next day will show us whether Trump and the Republicans will keep the power structure as is, or whether Democrats can gain more power in the House and/or Senate.

The direction of the country will be more clear by the New Moon next week.

And of course the stock market and economy have been travelling downward lately.  We let you know in earlier writings that the Saturn transit to the USA natal Venus and Jupiter (which is happening now) would bring a downfall of stocks and the economy as a whole.

There is no escaping the dark part of the country’s transformation now.   Everything is being set up for America’s fall before its rise again as a more equal member of the world community.

We are moving toward an Age of Aquarius, which will open its portal in December 2020. Of course the world and country will not be all filled with love and light all of a sudden, but nevertheless the turning point will have been experienced.  Signs of the new world will be more evident.

And of course the next Presidential Election is a month before – in November 2020, so its results will show us some evidence that we are headed in the right direction forward.

So many people lately are showing signs of depression concerning Climate Change, feeling no hope of a good result.

No savior is coming to change direction for us.

We do have the ability I believe to come together as a human community to bring hope back into our minds, hearts, and souls.

And not just about Climate Change.    We also will bring back hope for our world in so many ways.

Love and Truth are waiting at the door for us as a collective to open to them.  That will bring us to where we need to be in our evolution as a species. That will also bring us to healing our Earth and its environment.

Spiritually speaking it is not as important to know how all will happen. It is of paramount importance to find the connections; to connect to Source; to connect to the knowing of how we are all one family, no matter what skin, nation, sexual agenda, religion, etc.

All the dots are connected in the Universe, not randomly placed.  Only our ignorance of that fact will separate us from the connections.

Allow yourself to surrender to the Oneness, including the Oneness inside of you.   That is what will bring us to where we belong, to what will heal us and help us to evolve.

Resist the temptation to complicate everything or make it all too difficult.  Love will bring us and All together. Truth will keep us sane and sound and real.  All needed will come from there.

This week we have the Yin-ward journey down into the Earth and Soul, into deeper connection with our lower chakras and middle eye.  That happens with the Scorpio influence; almost all planets in Earth and Water; and the light dimming from the last quarter Moon.

Some light of inspiration will emerge, however, as Mercury goes into Sagittarius on the 30th.

Then on the 31st with sacred soul insightful Samhain, we also experience Retrograde Venus opposing Uranus. 

That will bring some kind of shift or turning point in relationships mid week.  We are working on changing relationship patterns with Venus being Retrograde, and this week will bring some awakening on the matter.

Till next week,

Leo

Robots and Zombies, and Astrology Forecast October 21-27

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week’s spotlight is on the Taurus Full Moon, Wednesday October 24 at 12:45 PM EDT.  This is not the typical Taurus Full Moon, as Uranus is closely conjunct the Moon. Additionally Retrograde Venus in Scorpio makes an opposition to that same Moon in Taurus.

The action gets started this week on Tuesday the 23rd when the Sun makes its annual entry into Scorpio. That happens at 7:22 AM EDT.

The relative civility of Sun in Libra gives way to the primal passion of Sun in Scorpio.  Since some of that civility of Libra has been compromised already (witness the Kelly/Bolton profanity laced blow-up in the White House this past week), I can only imagine what this Scorpio time period will be like this month.

Jupiter is still in Scorpio also, where it has been for almost a year now.  It moves into the fire light of Sagittarius on November 8, 2 days after Election Day in the USA.

So this week will likely be quite intense, and with Uranus’ influence “out of the ordinary”,  “out of control”, and for some “out of their minds”.

Intensity may accelerate as soon as Monday morning when the Moon moves into forceful Aries, then increases when the Sun moves into Scorpio on Tuesday.

And by Tuesday we will also be feeling the power of this Full Moon in Taurus.

Uranus in the Full Moon signature shakes up the same-old status quo normality (whatever is left of it).

So expect sudden turns of focus and events.  Taurus is a fixed earth sign, and as such it usually provides stability, comfort, and security.

Yet the Sun conjunct Venus in Scorpio- opposing that steady Moon in Taurus, promises passion and emotional power in contrast.

And Uranus in Taurus is very closely conjunct the Moon in Taurus and opposite the Sun and Venus in Scorpio.

Venus is Retrograde in Scorpio, which suggests relationships will intensify and get shaken up some more.  This is especially true for any relationships that are already troubled, or which have previously pushed important issues “under the rug” of daylight consciousness.

The strength of this Full Moon may push some to the edge.

There is a drama building in regards to refugees coming over the border from Mexico into southern USA.

The aforementioned blowup between Bolton and Kelly was over this issue. Bolton favors the military going down to the Mexican/USA border and stopping anyone from crossing into America. Trump apparently agrees more with this approach.

Kelly on the other hand favors a more tempered approach that is not so hard-line.

This Full Moon in Taurus is made of fixed signs Taurus and Scorpio, which means there is a lot of stubborn digging in with one’s beliefs and needs- not much room for compromise.  It can be like a “tug-of-war” between people.

Taurus can quite stubbornly hold the line and not budge.  But Sun/Venus in Scorpio can push for its agenda in quite intensely powerful ways.

And then Uranus in Taurus can create chaotic circumstances to help break issues and events open, facilitate breakthroughs, and break down anything in its way.

So order versus chaos is a potential theme of this Full Moon in Taurus.

You can expect order to begin to break down, and then as a result some will use more oppressive means so order can be restored.

In your personal life relationships are already in the spotlight with Venus Retrograde until November 16Now with Venus still Retrograde, Uranus in the Full Moon structure will help you to break away from any relationships or relationship patterns you are stuck in.

Uranus is great for helping people think out side boxes of limitation, awakening people to look at things in all new ways.   And in this process, Uranus helps to free or liberate people from situations or mindsets they were previously trapped in.

Uranus was discovered in 1781, during the USA revolution and France’s revolution too.

Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius, so is the ruling planet of the Age of Aquarius.

Each of us deserves to be free of the cultural programming that starts the day we are born into families and societies that have created paradigms we are all herded into.

Now as we transition out of the Age of Pisces and into the Age of Aquarius, de-programming is essential and there for us when needed.

And with Uranus strong this week, we can each make real progress on our soul’s journey into more free minds and hearts.

To me it is pretty obvious we need a revolution again, out of the corporate dominated, materialistic society we are brought up in.

We are free souls, free spirits, and free minds first and foremost.

Yes we may need structures and rules to live by to keep a somewhat ordered and moral way of living.   But those structures and rules need to be made to lovingly support our free spirits, not to dominate and control them.

Our hearts belong to ourselves and the Universe, not to a nation, not even to a family.

Somehow we have been hypnotized in giving our power away to the state, which is now governed by big money and big military, not truly serving the people.

Yes you may seem to get security benefits from an allegiance to the nation and its rules,  but at what price?  In many cases, slowly but surely heart and soul fall asleep, spirit dies.

Zombies are metaphorically real. Movies and shows about them have been so popular because there is a ring of truth to them.. More and more people are “walking dead”, without knowing it.  They stop thinking for themselves, and instead make knee jerk opinions that are always loyal to the “team” they are on.  An example is liberals versus conservatives.

Politics has become more like a team sport or better yet army war games.

You are different from me and so you are my enemy? People do not even try to understand where someone from the other team are coming from. They have lost the ability to think and feel for themselves.

They have robotic reactions to everything important. No wonder robots are being thought to replace humans in so many ways. Robots and zombies- our future?

Till next week

Leo

Reconciling Past and Present, and Astrology Forecast October 13-19.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 13, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The New Moon in Libra square Pluto blew in very powerfully last Monday the 8th.  Adding to the intensity, Venus had gone Retrograde in Scorpio just 3 days earlier.

As we wrote last week that is a powerful dose of underworld intensity from Pluto/Scorpio energies.

And we mentioned how Kali would be connected to the powerful planetary movements as a counter to the Kavanaugh events of the previous week.

So what came just about a day and a half after the New Moon in Libra?   There was an 800 point drop in the USA stock Market (followed by an over 500 point drop the next day).  And on the same day the wrath of Mother Nature brought a huge and devastating Hurricane to Southeast USA.

Deep and powerful transformation was at work this past week.  The old Paradigm, which includes the “old boy’s club”, is being shaken up.  The economic structures that keep it propped up were threatened this last week, and you can expect more to come.

The Military/Industrial Complex is the power of the Empire, and so both economy and military might are in the process of being challenged by extraordinary events.

In your personal life, relationships are at the top of the list for being looked at now. That is because Venus has just gone Retrograde (until November 16), and the Venus-ruled Libra New Moon had transformational Pluto in its signature.

Relationships of the past come back into our awareness (through dreams, memories, and real-time reconnections).  This is often “romantic” relationships, but many times it is family and friend interactions instead.

These old relationships may remind us of the old patterns, the old disappointments, the traumas and wounds, the disillusions. They also may remind us of more loving times.

We are often, as a result, given the opportunity to change the patterns, or to release the past, or just to remember how it used to be.  Healing can also come as a result of revisiting.

Sometime after the end of the Retrograde period, we will feel we can move on into a  New Relationship Chapter.

Current relationships can be shook up during Venus Retrograde, shook up so we can look deeper and more realistically at the condition of said relationships.  And then we can choose to change the patterns, end the relationship (or at least its current form), or keep it just the ways it is (not as likely a result).

And remember this can be family or friend or work relationships too.  Family relationship issues are quite common during Venus Retrograde.

Last week we did not include some other Venus issues that can be experienced during Venus Retrograde.

Venus is not only the ruling planet for relationship oriented Libra. It is also the ruling planet for Taurus.

That means that during Venus Retrograde, we may also experience important issues around money, land, house changes, body and health issues, and security issues in general.

Whatever comes up in those regards need to be processed as much as possible, often without ultimate resolution or answers being easily found.

But after Venus goes back Direct those solutions, clarity and direction are more available.

Keep in mind that in the bigger picture we are moving out of an Old Chapter of our lives and into a New Chapter.

Whatever we are being confronted with now during Venus Retrograde is for the purpose of sorting out what needs to be released, or instead what can come with us during this transition into a new phase of life.

And of course the greater world we live in is going through this same transition.  It is not mere coincidence that Election Day is smack dab within the time of Venus Retrograde.

What happens then will help determine what our next collective chapter will look like. Will the Trump culture get a boost to continue what it has been doing?

Or will there be a shift that shows us the beginning of a turn in a different direction?

So this Venus Retrograde (which includes Election Day) will be a big turning point in our human culture’s travels into a New Chapter and eventually a New Age.

No matter what ,we are headed for the Age of Aquarius,; but the condition of the ride there will be affected by this time period.

How intense will the USA culture wars get?  How much can we bring some sanity back into our world? Is the old boy’s club beginning to break up?  How far will our stock market and economy need to fall?  How much will the world power structure start to change and how destructive will that be?

And more importantly, how much are we leaving behind the paradigm of “survival of the fittest” “dog eat dog” mentality? How much are we instead entering a collective consciousness of equality and fairness, of Diversity in Unity, of Love and Truth guiding our human path?

How far have we come to knowing all of our lives are meaningful, with signs, symbols and synchronicities showing the way?

Have we come to realize we are all connected and in fact All is connected? Do we understand that Soul energizes our temporary body vehicles, so we can serve our purposes this incarnation?

Do we know that Natural Cycles and Seasons govern the Nature of the Earth, but also our Solar System and Universe and all our human lives?

We are each held in the arms of our Mother/Father Spirit Source, safe and secure in its Love.  This is larger and more powerful than any society, corporation, government, tyrant or Empire.

This week we continue through the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Libra on October 8. We enter the 2nd quarter of the cycle on Tuesday the 16th of October.  Venus Retrograde continues this week.  The Full Moon in Taurus is on October 24.

Also this week, Third-Eye related Mercury in Scorpio makes insightful conjunct connection to Venus Retrograde,  and trines Neptune in Pisces.

This is a great week to go deeper, to go inside where core truths reside.

Till next week,

Leo

Power of the Feminine and Astrology Forecast October 7-13.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on October 6, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

With Venus now Retrograde (until November 16), and with a Venus ruled New Moon in Libra this week on Monday October 8; two themes are prominent: The Feminine and Relationships.

Venus has gone Retrograde in Scorpio, and if we were to look at various Goddesses, ones of power, depth and passion would be appropriate.

And Kali is one of those.  Seems like Kali is waiting to emerge- just outside our collective USA doorstep.

The old ways, especially the “old boys network” ways that are so powerful in the USA, are ready now for the force of Kali.

What happened this last week with the Kavanaugh for Supreme Court fiasco shows me that the passage into the Age of Aquarius will not be graceful.

Kavanaugh, besides the obvious sexual abuse he perpetrated, is unfit because of unbalanced temperament and certain bias against liberals. His out of control speech showed both of those faults.

But most importantly, and here is where Kali comes in, there is no real respect for women, and certainly not for those who have been  sexually terrorized, and made to feel like they have no value except as an object of others’ desires.

The old boys club needs to be shown cosmic lessons in humility and empathy, especially in regards to women. Kali is just the gal to do it.

So now women, and many men too, must embody the spirit of Kali and cause a revolution that transforms the power structure in our world and country.

It is time for a system that gives power and privilege to a select group of mainly white men to leave our country and world, And of course women like Senator Collins are part of the old boys club.

In some ways she is worse than the men, as she is a woman who talks like she understands and believes abused women, yet she still believes and still votes for Kavanaugh. Her talk is Bullshitting.

So as Venus goes Retrograde in Scorpio, let the power of the Feminine (which men can connect with and still be men) come through us all now.

And as we experience the New Moon in Libra on October 8 at 11:47 PM EDT in close square to Scorpio ruling Pluto, more power of Woman is unleashed.

Pluto has only recently gone Direct, so is still strong in our energy field.  And Libra is ruled by Venus, so Pluto and Venus are working in tandem (as they are with Venus in Scorpio too.)

There is no stopping this Feminine power now, so you can add your energy and will to it to make the movement work even more strongly.

Venus Retrograde and New Moon in Libra also point us to relationship issues.  Venus Retrograde in Scorpio begins a six week period of focus on relationships. In fact it is more like 11 weeks as the whole cycle extends to when Venus goes back to where it began its Retrograde movement (at 10+ degrees of Scorpio).

This is a real opportunity to experience old relationship patterns that are not working anymore, so you can work on changing, releasing, and transforming those patterns.  This is potentially really deep work, with many insights available for you.

This is about any kind of relationship: romantic, family, plutonic friendship, or work related.   Pluto and Scorpio do add the possibility of deep intimacy and sexual connections, so more romantic relationships fall into that category.

Scorpio and Pluto suggest that issues that have been suppressed or repressed will come back up again, hence old traumas (especially including sexual trauma) are ripe for being looked at, healed, and transformed. This is perfectly timed with what is happening in our world now.

It will be more and more difficult these next few months to keep the secret of abuse.  And so much emotion is attached to these memories. Allow for the clearing of the air and the catharsis that attends such emotional release.

Old ways need to die, old relationship patterns need to die.  And in some cases the actual relationship needs to die.

Pluto or Kali are not very gracious.  They can be ruthless and unforgiving. Events coming up in our world will be quite powerful and intense. Let the old ways, the old paradigm, go.

Remember that as bad as those ways are for our souls, bodies, and spirits, there is usually a part of us that resists the powerful change of letting them go.  It can be disruptive to our security driven lives. Surrender and acceptance are needed.

Jupiter is also in Scorpio, where it has been for the last year or so.  So its intensity adds to the theme of Scorpio and Pluto passions now.

Jupiter leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius on November 8, just after Election Day November 6.  That Jupiter movement signifies things breaking open, moving outside the box, and into being liberated.

Many are so focused on that Election Day to transform the political landscape. And yes it is important to vote to change the status quo, but it will take much more than votes and elections to transform our world.

The Military/Industrial Complex of the Empire sustains the old world paradigm and the privileges it has provided for the chosen few.

Our energy and action in concert with the power of the Universe/God/Goddess/Allah/Source (whatever term is meaningful to you) are about to go to whole new levels of Transformational changes.

Do not let yourself get too down and out or depressed now, feeling there is nothing that can be done.  The winds of the Universe are at our backs now, so if we are proactive in this process of change it will be so much more powerful. We are not victims to this unfair system.

We are part of Nature and the Universe, Spirit and Soul.  That and our ability to come together in collective community are so much more powerful than a cabal of privileged people controlling and beholden to a man-made system, even though equipped with weapons of mass destruction.

Who and what do you believe in? What do you believe is ultimately more powerful? Love, Truth, Justice, and natural cycles of Nature and the Universe- or the Empire?

Till next week,

Leo
