Beyond Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast July 28- August 3

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we experience an important turning point for our collective and personal Soul journeys.

The first part of this week we will continue to walk through the slowdown of the 4th quarter of a lunar cycle, a cycle that began July 2 at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer. The ride has been emotionally charged, especially considering family issues, but also the rights and empowerment of Women.

Since July 7, we have also been experiencing Mercury being Retrograde; and for many that has meant going back over issues that were thought dead and buried.

In that process, many have been questioning previously made decisions, viewpoints, and opinions.

Mercury Retrograde at times is like a mental rewind, a peering back into the past through our dreams, conversations, and waking memories.

This passing Mercury Retrograde has done its job if you have been loosening up on what you previously determined to be true.

And late on July 31 there is a New Moon in Leo while Mercury Retrograde grinds to a halt (is stationary), just as it shifts back into being Direct.

The Leo New Moon on the 31st gets our creative juices flowing, and begins to bring more fun and more hope into our lives.

But that Leo New Moon will also trigger the big egos of the world to come out and try to dominate.

Trump of course suffers from narcissism with his Leo Rising sign and most especially through his Mars in Leo conjunct that Ascendent.

A healthy Leo is open-hearted, shining a bright light of positivity, creativity, and fun.

Distorted and unhealthy, Leo makes everything centered around Her or His own Self.

The Leo New Moon from July 31 (at 11:12 PM EDT), will begin to trigger important events out in the world.

Swirling around in our collective consciousness since around July 2 at the eclipse:  Trump’s potential impeachment; more culture war stemming from immigration and border issues; Iran being put into a hard core enemy slot by hard liners in the USA, Britain, Saudi Arabia,  Israel, etc; democratic party debates on television; more strutting for power and control against China and Russia; and a bubbling (under the surface) economic crisis.

So as we transition this week out of Eclipse Season and Mercury Retrograde, we are as prepared as we can be for the events coming up soon in the world.

Mercury goes Direct on the 31st at 11:58 PM EDT.  We have written in the past that a couple of days either side of Mercury changing direction, can be the most confusing time in the Mercury cycle.

I am sure you will remember the November 2000 Presidential Election Day in the USA, when Bush ran against Gore.

TV station announcers were going back and forth all night between declaring winner to be Bush and declaring winner to be Gore.  This uncertainty about who won went on several weeks before Bush was declared the winner, with Supreme Court assistance.

That was of course a most exaggerated and dramatic showing of Mercury changing directions. It changed direction from Retrograde to Direct that Election Night.  We are not expecting anything near that confusing, but I do suggest you take in the potential confusion that can accompany Mercury changing directions.

And with the New Moon in Leo only 46 minutes sooner than Mercury going back Direct, we can expect an unusual day or couple of days.

The Democrat Party presidential debates happen on the 30th and 31st of July as Mercury transitions into Direct.  The Leo New Moon is in the evening of the 31st, just before Mercury goes into Direct motion.

We can expect communication miscues during the debates, some that will help determine who may eventually win.   We can also expect surprising positive performances that will shake things up even more.

As there is the Leo New Moon on the 31st, we can expect those who naturally shine brightly from their hearts to do especially well.  And we can also expect the biggest egos to come out during the debates this week.

Remember that though there is a fiery New Moon in Leo and Mercury going Direct on the 31st, it is not a time to go fast forward.  Mercury needs a week or more back Direct before you can be assured of full clarity and direction to show.

And the Leo New Moon is only the beginning of the Leo lunar cycle.  Get your motor running,  let creative ideas in, but most importantly at this New Moon in Leo – Open your Heart up wider, which also opens intuitive knowing that the logical mind cannot find on its own.

On August 1 is Lammas,  a sacred turning point in the year that our ancestors celebrated.  It was a time to celebrate the harvest and also is a time half way between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox.

Feel the energy shifting this week, at mid week and beyond.  Something will wake up inside, especially as you let your heart to open more, and to be more relied upon as you continue to go forward in your life.

If you miss magic being in your life, know that an open heart is more allowing of transformational energies to flow through your being. And that will bring the magic with it.

And often relationships seem to hold our hearts and souls captured, keeping us stuck and shut down.

But Venus in Leo square Uranus in Taurus this Friday August 2 shows some promise in opening stubbornly closed hearts.  It also shows some promise in awakening in us the need and way out of old relationship patterns.

Mars in Leo the next few weeks will trigger events that are connected to what was happening in August 2017.  That was the month that brought us the powerful Total Eclipse New Moon in Leo that travelled exclusively through the USA.

Go back to that time period in your life in order to better understand what may be happening with you now.

In the greater world,  the Charlottesville tragedy revolving around white supremacy happened; as well as North Korea war blustering; and Middle East intensity. So be aware of the USA culture war; China and North Korea conflict with USA; and issues with Iran and Israel.  Any or some of these issues will arise again before summer ends. Impeachment moves should get much stronger then also.

So overall, this week pushes us beyond and through what has been blocking our hearts and our movement forward lately.  Much wants to open up and get moving.  Holding on to the past will keep new energies and new events, and new people from coming through.

It is not easy to let go of the past in our hearts and minds- but memories will always be there for you.

Till next week,

Leo

Waiting for the Light and Astrology Forecast July 21-27

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 20, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The second and last eclipse of Summer Eclipse Season 2019 has passed.

Eclipse Season continues however, as we now process what has been happening lately, and while doing that try to make sense and find meaning to it all.

We need resolution, we need direction, we need to bring everything and everyone back together again.

So many people have been telling me they know what they have left behind in the old chapter, but do no know what to do now or where to go and when.

And this is happening while Mercury is still Retrograde.  So making ultimate decisions or being crystal clear on what direction to take is still not accessible.

But it is a good time to be processing both feelings and thoughts, but best to do so without pushing for the answers or direction.  It is time now to trust that all will be clear and meaning known at the right time.

The 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle begins this Wednesday the 24th with the Moon in Taurus and Sun in Leo.

The Sun is ready to begin to shine a light on the parts of our lives that have stayed in the dark unknowing.   But the Moon is in stubbornly fixed Earth Taurus, and it still needs to make grounded practical sense of it all.

The first turning point toward resolutions and truly moving forward happens on July 31.  That day brings a New Moon in Leo, which means both Sun and Moon are conjunct in fiery Leo.

Mercury also goes Direct that day, so the light at the end of any mental tunnels we are in will be shining for us to see.

But for now, especially out in the greater world, the darkness of separation and enemy making is powerful now.

Since the “send them back” hateful expressions of the Trump, and the pushes for war with Iran, there are breakdowns that are now quite immanent.

America is culturally splitting in two, as it did even more dramatically during the Civil War.  Circumstances are being created that make world war more and more likely every day.   “Smoke and mirrors” are being used to convince everyone that the economy is healthy and growing, which it is not.

This USA president, whether you agree with his policies or not, is psychologically a huge childish mess who is growing increasingly dangerous to our collective well being.

One can feel how “on the edge” everything is now.  Something relatively small may be enough to trigger the dominoes to fall all over the world.

This is our reality now, and each of us needs to work on our own consciousness and lives,  as we seek to transform in alignment with the Universal cycle bringing in the Age of Aquarius.

The old world is corrupt and has been corrupt, long before Trump came around. His presence in our world has brought all our shadows and demons out into the light for all to see. His presence is forcing the truth of our world into our faces

He is a reflection of our American and World shadow values.  Being rich and famous is truly the ultimate experience and goal for people in the old paradigm.  And for many anything one does to reach those goals is OK.  Hence the corruption and selfishness. And anything one feels like doing if they are rich and famous enough, is OK.

Why are athletes and movie stars the most admired people in our world? Why are they so wealthy? Capitalism in its current form is not working for the betterment of our world and its people and creatures. It is not working for the health of our Earth and its environment.

Look at this Epstein guy who has been a pedophile for many years.  And watch now to see the privileged people who have had close relationship with him, and likely were perpetrators too.

Trump and Bill Clinton, for instance, have been pretty good buddies with Epstein. What has been their involvement?

The old paradigm and age are in the decadent phase of their downfall, closer to their demise, as happened with the Roman Empire, the Empire that brought in the old Pisces Age.

Christ was the spiritual symbol that brought in the Pisces Age, and Rome was the material world symbol.

And now the Military Industrial Complex is the material world symbol, and the Christ like consciousness of empathy, compassion, inner Kingdom values, and soul are the spiritual symbol.  This is full circle, as we begin our entry into the Age of Aquarius.

But you know that in conjunction with that entry and the growing beautiful light, love, and truth that shine for it; there is the matter of dealing with a dark dying world and its paradigm that happen at the same time.

In your own life, please go deeper than merely wishing the Trump be gone. He is a symbol of a diseased part of our collective soul.

We need to have a revolution and evolution now so we can move more fully forward in the New Age.

When Uranus (ruling planet of Aquarius) was discovered in 1781, the French and American revolutions were beginning also.

Much of what those revolutions were about was giving the world to the power of the people, no longer a world run by Kings and Queens and Dictators.

These revolutions at the Uranus discovery was the first real glimpse we received of the Age of Aquarius, and some actually believe that era began the Age of Aquarius.

I believe it was our first glimpse of the Age of Aquarius.  Now with our current King Donald/Emperor Trump, we are ready to complete the job of ridding our world of Kings and Queens and Dictators,  controlling governments, or domination by Corporations.

“We the people” need to be ready to take responsibility for our world and our human family.  We need to get ready to build a world of Diversity Within Unity.

With a Shit Storm coming, we need to keep our eye on the ball of revolution and evolution into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

Sure Trump needs to go one way or another, but the issue is much deeper than him. A King or Queen Democrat would not be right either.

So let’s look at our choices and see if there is one who is ready to lead us into an Age of Aquarius, an age “of the people. by the people and for the people”.

After the July 31 New Moon in Leo and Mercury going back Direct, we can expect big world events to show.

This week now, the 4th quarter Moon in Taurus is on Wednesday the 24th, just two days after the Sun goes into Leo on Monday the 22nd.

That Sun in Leo wants to bring more hope into our hearts and to trigger our creative juices to flow.  Of course we need the Moon to join the Sun for full expression, but we only need to wait until July 31 at the Leo New Moon.

Some more fire will shine this week, when Mars in Leo trines Jupiter in Sagittarius on Thursday the 25th.

Feel the confidence that aspect inspires, but also be aware that sparks from that aspect can ignite a fire in a previously sleeping dog.

Till next week,

Leo

Chaos and Order and Astrology Forecast July 14-20

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 13, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn hits exactly on Tuesday July 16 at 5:38 PM EDT. 

As this is a full moon, the Sun in Cancer is opposite the Full Moon in Capricorn at 24+ degrees of each sign.  Pluto at 21+degrees of Capricorn is conjunct the moon and opposite the Sun.

So this a powerful full moon eclipse.  You can begin to feel or experience a full moon of any kind usually about 3 days before the full moon and up to 3 days after the full moon.

This Full Moon Eclipse has the Sun in water sign Cancer and the Moon in earth sign Capricorn.

Capricorn makes boundaries, rules, and strict definitions more solidly than any sign, while Cancer can spread its energies, moods, and watery feelings without any desire for boundaries, rules or strict definitions

Just take a look at the issues that are already coming into view in anticipation of the Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon Eclipse.

As I write this, a Hurricane is close to making landfall in Louisiana. Its explosive power will bring huge waves of water onto the land, as people try to limit the damage it creates.

And for Sunday the 14th,  Trump has ordered immigration officers to round up immigrants who are seen as invaders breaking the law by being in the country illegally.

I am sure these issues will play out over the next few days, and other issues with the same theme of energies out of control being challenged by boundaries and rules of law.

Put in simpler terms, this can be seen as Chaos versus Order, and at its worst can be experienced as Anarchy versus Fascism.

It sure does feel sometimes as if we are on the verge of a much more intense version of chaos versus order than we are witnessing now.

In your own life, do you need more rules to follow with more discipline? Do you need to assert stronger boundaries and learn to say no more often?

Or do you need to loosen up more, be less judgmental, and allow more freedom of expression around you?

Cancer can be very lenient and unconditional. Capricorn can be a strict taskmaster.

Opposites are not meant to be at war with one another.  They are meant to compliment one another and, to offer different viewpoints,  and like a magnet be drawn to connecting with one another.

Can you see “hot” being at war with “cold”? Should “up” go to war with “down”? Should night be fighting against day?

Opposites are joined by the circle of a Yin/Yang symbol. We have been breaking apart that unifying symbol, and creating war.

Men versus Women is certainly playing out in a big way in our culture now.  They are instead meant to join as one.

But since they have been distorted for such a long time from their natural expression, and programmed to act in overly defined roles,  they are needing to be liberated from those chains of control.

And in so doing, they each have needed to be free to find themselves, their authentic expression.  And that authenticity needs to adjust itself to a rapidly changing world, to a New Age.

So is it any wonder we have women becoming men, men becoming women, and such uncertainty  and fluidity with gender and sexual identity?

Remember that this Eclipse Season is a mere appetizer before the main meal of December 2019/January 2020. There will be two eclipses again with Cancer/Capricorn staying as themes. And also then in January 2020 Saturn and Pluto will make an exact conjunction with one another, and their conjunction will be conjunct the Cancer Lunar Eclipse in January.

And all this is happening in the same section of the zodiac- between 19 and 25 degrees of Cancer and Capricorn.

That means that if you have natal planets between 19 and 25 degrees of Cardinal Signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn you will be going through powerful transformation over the next several months.

This Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn on July 16 is at 24+ degrees of Cancer/Capricorn.

The USA natal Mercury is at 24 degrees of Cancer and opposite natal Pluto at 27 degrees of Capricorn.

So the USA is experiencing a powerful transformation of its liberal (Cancer) and conservative (Capricorn) sides to itself.

This theme is powerfully playing out now, and will continue to do so through January 2020.  This is a true culture war similar to the Civil War of the 19th Century in America. Now we have Blue and Red states playing out the same general themes.

America is finding itself, finding its values.  Who are we now? And how do we now relate  to the rest of the world and to the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius we are transitioning into?

The current inflammatory issues with Iran and China and Russia are of utmost importance now. The issue of having an economic system fair to all is of utmost importance now. The issue of taking care of our Mother Earth is of utmost importance now.

As we move through this important week of the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, while Mercury is Retrograde; it is important to keep our view to the Big Picture.

And that picture shows us that inside all the wars and separations is the truth that all is connected, whether we recognize it or not.  Under the surface lies spirit and soul that fuels and energizes our experience.

Being a part of that connectedness shows us magic, solutions where none could be previously found, signs and synchronicities that show our Universal connections, and of course the Love and Truth that holds us all in its embrace.

If you are having a difficult time making those connections, you know that regular meditation is the best way to take you there and keep you there.  So also can being immersed in Nature, or opening your heart with music and dance, or spending time with babies and puppies and kitties.

Life in this Universe and Earth realm runs on seasons and cycles.  The planets in the heavens run in predictable cycles, here on Earth each season passes into the next.

And amazingly, the Sun and Moon both show up as perfect circles in the heavens, as viewed from Earth.

Straight lines begin and end; circles show continuation.  And only relatively recently did we know that the Earth was round, an important symbolic discovery.

And now we in the process of experiencing one of the biggest cycles: changing of the ages.  That now is a Pisces Age changing into an Age of Aquarius- a 2160 year cycle.

The election in November 2020 leads into the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius in December 2020.  This is a turning point toward the Age of Aquarius, not all perfect, but nevertheless a solid sign all is progressing as it should.

Till next week,

Leo

New Parental Paradigms and Astrology Forecast July 7-13.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on July 6, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Emotions certainly intensified last week surrounding the date of the Solar Eclipse last week: July 2.   Many people also experienced a rising up of tensions concerning family matters last week.  Here in New England a rising level of muggy humidity added to the discomfort.

I also felt a slipping into a “twilight zone” of unreality last week too.  The Trump 4th of July display of military tanks, planes, and weapons in D.C. added to the unreal (or maybe too real) quality of last week.

And this foggy air of insecure feelings coordinates with Mercury’s movement, as it has been slowing down in anticipation for its shift from Direct to Retrograde.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Sunday July 7 at 7:14 PM EDT.  It will stay there until July 31.  So the remainder of Summer Eclipse Season, which includes one more eclipse on July 16,  will be mixing it up with Mercury Retrograde the whole time.

That second eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn, will be conjunct both Pluto and Saturn.  Pluto will be less than 3 degrees away from that Full Moon Eclipse. That is the more powerful of the two eclipses.

So this week, the week in between eclipses and introducing Mercury Retrograde, intensifies the emotional energy field, and will tend toward having large breakthroughs into new realms.

Those breakthroughs will result from a combination of being in the middle of the eclipses, Mercury Retrograde and the powerful and liberating Mars square Uranus.

Mars square Uranus is on Thursday July 11. It represents the experience of breaking out of stuck places, liberation, changing tides of action, and breakthroughs into new territories.

Eclipses are always about change, letting go of what one clings to beyond its lifeblood.  It is about breakthroughs but also breakdowns sometimes.

Mercury Retrograde also helps with change, as there is a readjustment of one’s perceptions, and a questioning of what was previously decided.

But of course it is usually not a great time to change one’s mind or direction until after Mercury has been back Direct for a week or so.

Mars in Leo square Uranus this week also can be a revolutionary energy. This is especially so because Mars is in “royal” Leo and Uranus (the ruling planet of Aquarius) is the planet of rebellion.

Energies that seek to break away from our current King George in America (Trump), will likely be much stronger this week. Mueller interviewed by Congress will happen on the 17th, a day after the Lunar Eclipse.

Also keep a close eye on Iran and Israel this week, as Mars in Leo begins to work its way through the natal charts of America, Israel, Iran, Trump, and Netanyahu.

The last time Mars was in Leo was when the great American Total Solar Eclipse in Leo shook up our world in August 2017.

Charlottesville Virginia showed us white supremacy and culture war; North Korea and Trump traded dangerous words of destruction to one another; and the Middle East was simmering hot.

For the rest of this current July and most of August, Mars will be triggering the charts mentioned above; and then will trigger the actual degree of the Total Leo Solar Eclipse on August 15.

Is there any doubt that the PTB are eyeing up Iran as they eyed up Iraq?  The time of Mars in Leo this summer is a likely time of eruption.

These Eclipse Seasons are meant to take us out of status quo coasting, and get us out of our easy chairs of avoidance.

Energies from the river of new consciousness, the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius, are pushing hard against the dams of our old ways.

During times like this summer, the dams are showing big leaks and threaten to break apart so the waters of new consciousness, light, love and truth can come pouring through.

Those old ways do tend to give us a sense of stability and security, but at the same time they keep our hearts and souls controlled and locked up in chains.

The powerful events coming into our world now, no matter what, will break open the gates of our controlled hearts and souls.

This Eclipse Season is helping us to break away from family patterns, dysfunctions, and co-dependencies.

The whole idea of needing to live up to something in order to be loved, is wanting to dissolve in our minds and souls.

Each generation attempts to pass down to the next generation the same patterns.  But you can stop the movement, we can stop the movement.

When a parent holds back love in order to motivate a child to do better at something, it is injuring that soul on a very deep level. It is so difficult to break away from that pattern later in life.

Yes task masters can be very helpful in getting someone to be the best that they can be, to be excellent and a master at what they do.

You can hold back praise and be disappointed. Hold them accountable. But please do not make that child feel they do not deserve love, that love must be earned.

We each deserve to be loved for exactly who we are authentically, which we do for our babies and toddlers. But then, often coinciding with school attendance, we damage self esteem and self love by our showing disdain and disgust for those not living up to a high bar of achievement.

The Cancer/Capricorn dichotomy during the eclipses now and again in December 2019 and January 2020, will tend to bring out these issues.

Cancer can guilt and shame us into doing what is expected; Capricorn can humiliate and destroy our self esteem. Together they are the Mother (Cancer) and Father (Capricorn) of the old paradigm.

Those archetypes sought to program us, so we could produce for and show allegiance to the Family (Cancer) and State (Capricorn).

Now those signs are transforming how they operate in our new consciousness for a new Age.

Cancer is the unconditionally loving parent who sees our soul and knows us as precious beings. It helps us develop inner values based on who we are. It helps us to love ourselves.

Capricorn is the parent who sees what we can do in the world, based on our talents and gifts, and interests.  And more than all else, it guides us to find our potential destiny, our purpose for being on the Earth this incarnation. It helps us to find our truth.

Now with the Cancer/Capricorn emphasis in our recent Eclipse Seasons, we can purge the old parents inside us. And we can let in the transformed inner parents who are our foundation in the new paradigm and age.

Our own personal parents often do the best they can for the time.  After we have passed through layers of transformation, we learn to love them in new ways.

As we release our need to make them be what we wanted them to be, we are at the same time giving them the consciousness of the new paradigm and age.

The parents you received this lifetime are arguably just what you needed, not necessarily what you wanted.

Stay present for energies that are moving through you this Eclipse Season. It may not feel so good sometimes, but the deeper transformational work is happening deep inside our hearts and souls.

Till next week and the powerful Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn,

Leo
