Love and Truth and Astrology Forecast September 29- October 5

Posted in Uncategorized on September 28, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Important and potentially powerful week ahead.  It all starts with a New Moon in Libra on Saturday the 28th of September at 2:26 PM EDT.

This is first new moon since the Autumn Equinox of September 23.  We in the Northern Hemisphere are getting used to the darkening days, with cooler winds blowing in.

Libra is the scales of balancing.  The Yin/Yang symbol is a good metaphor for Libra.  Libra’s “job” is to find the link, find the bridge, find the path that shows you how and when to connect.

With that ability, it can be a good mediator or diplomat.  Libra is naturally good finding others’ hearts to connect with. Yet Libra is not just connected by heart. As an air sign, it also tends to spend a lot of time in its head.

At this Libra New Moon, ask your self how your relationships are doing, most especially the romantic ones.

Usually Libra is OK with finding compromise, but is not OK with decisions that make one’s independence more important than the relationship.

So now, with the New Moon in Libra, there is usually an easier road to finding peace in an otherwise combative relationship.

There should be strong attempts to find relationship connections with Iran, instead of that movement toward war that has been growing for the last couple of weeks.  Trade wars with China should be finding middle ground.  Conservatives and liberals should be able to find common ground with one another.

But here is the rub this week, found in a nutshell of a planetary combination: Venus in loving Libra is exactly square Pluto on Monday/Tuesday.

And that Pluto is more powerful than usual as it has slowed down in its process of changing directions from Retrograde to Direct on October 2/3.

Outer planets changing directions “empower” the planet changing directions much more than usual.

So Pluto, god of the underworld; ruler of passionate Scorpio; “maker” of plutonium which is used to make nuclear bombs;  affiliate of sex and dominance, is in the energetic spotlight this week.

And as it squares lover Venus, the theme for the week is laid out: Peace or War?; listen to the other person or stand your ground in your power?

Look for that theme this week. Mercury goes into Scorpio on Thursday the 4th, but Mars goes into Libra on the 3rd. Truth and Love.

The Trump is is serious hot water now. There has been growing evidence of his desire to use foreign governments to serve his needs and desires to stay President.  He has been accused of trying to talk Ukraine officials into investigating VP Biden, who is highest ranked opposition to his keeping his hold on President.

That issue combined with many other issues,  plus the coming huge challenges with the stock market and economy, pushes him into more and more decay and defeat.

Astrologically both Saturn and Pluto are opposing his natal conjunction of Venus and Saturn in Cancer.

His comfort/safety/nurture zones are becoming very uncomfortable. And the Pluto/Saturn conjunction in Capricorn in January 2020 hits those same natal planets. And Pluto will continue to affect his Venus in Cancer safety zone through 2021.

Remember that there is a bigger picture playing out in the heavens that the media and politicians have no idea about.

Our human consciousness is moving so fast through rapid evolution now.  We are all getting aligned and ready for the challenges that will continue to be presented to us, so we can evolve into Aquarian Age consciousness.

So many people are waking up, more and more every day. And a most important step forward is the knowing of the connections.

All the dots in the Universe are connected. The Yin/Yang symbol holding the opposites together is being appreciated deeper inside human souls, not seen just as an intellectual endeavor.

Knowing the connections is a knowing of Love, and can be known in our hearts not merely in our heads.  But Love is connected to Truth, like the Yin/Yang symbol connecting the opposites.

Many people see Truth as disconnected from Love, as they see the head with a totally opposed agenda to the heart.

Sometimes the head and heart seem not to agree- truth and love appear to have different “opinions” of what to do.

I believe that at this period of our evolution as humans that we trust our hearts to lead the way.  But it must consult with its top adviser the head. Sometimes the heart lives in a fantasy, and sometimes because it has been so traumatized it has lost its “confidence” and picks people who get her to relive the trauma again and again.

The Feminine is growing stronger in conjunction with our need to honor love and the connections in our world and Universe.

But you must be able to recognize the damage that has been done to our heads also. Truth is compromised all the time it seems. So many people “spin” the truth and facts to suit whatever agenda they want to sell you and me.

And propaganda is still used by governments and religions and corporations in order to control people.

So Truth has been as damaged as Love in our human consciousness. And to counter that, “we the people” must trust our own minds and hearts, and not be so influenced by the “experts”.

Love is damaged as skepticism becomes cynicism.  Many in mainstream preach that there are no connections, no meaning, nothing beyond scientific logic.  There is no love or magic, instead there is negotiation to get as much of what you want as you can. Relationship becomes more about using one another than caring about one another.

So this week, as we work out the Venus in Libra square changing directions Pluto theme; we work out the core of powerful yet “third eye” of truth Pluto in relationship with loving (though not always with Self) Venus in Libra.

Love without Truth is not real; Truth without Love is cynical and alone.

This is a fine week to transform your relationship between love and truth, between head and heart.

Till next week,

Leo

Autumn Equinox and Astrology Forecast September 22-28.

Posted in Uncategorized on September 21, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Father Time Saturn went Direct this past week, alerting us all that time marches on and cannot be stopped.  Some things we need to do before time runs out, and some things are fated to happen at certain times we cannot escape.

This week brings us into the last quarter of the lunar cycle, a time of finishing up of the old cycle and preparing for the new lunar cycle.  That new lunar cycle begins at the Libra New Moon on Saturday September 28.

Most importantly, during this last quarter of the Moon’s cycle, we experience our yearly travel into the Autumn Equinox here in the northern hemisphere of Planet Earth.

“Down Under” they experience the beginning of Spring at the Spring Equinox on that same day.

That day is Monday September 23 at 3:50 AM EDT.   It is the moment of equality between light and dark minutes of the day.

It is the Yin-Yang symbol of nature.   Yin and Yang are equal, as are Male and Female, and Light and Dark at that time of Equinox.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere that equality immediately shifts into darkness beginning to increase.  In the Southern Hemisphere the light of Springtime increases in volume.

So here at Autumn Equinox, with darkness increasing, it is metaphorically the “sunset” time of year.

If quiet and tuned in, you can feel the “sun going down”.  As such there is more feeling vulnerable, and more orientation to rely relationships and friends.

It is the beginning of Libra, with its scales of balance, of justice.  Needs for being fair and “just” gain in importance.

Libra brings in more beauty too, which can be seen in the beautiful colors of the leaves of Autumn.

So art and beauty and symmetry also gain in value at Libra time of year.

But most importantly, Libra brings with it more feelings of love and affection.

Libra knows “connection”, sees connections everywhere and in all ways.  Its opposite sign Aries wants more than anything to be true to Self.  Libra values more the connection.

And sometimes for the sake of connection and others’ needs, it forgets its own needs and wants. It can lose its sense of self.

Libra is a social sign, and knows well the social graces, politeness, and compromise. It also knows how to mediate between others who are at odds with one another.

It is known as a sign of peace and love.

And you know the world has been getting more volatile over the last few years, with more mass murders.  And also now the war drums have been beating to go the war with Iran. We are on the verge of war, and it all feels so similar to the lead up to the war in Iraq.

Since the nuclear deal made with Iran by Obama and western allies was torn up by Trump, it has been obvious to me that the “powers that be” are focused on Iran now.

There is more hope for dialogue with the Libra influence now, but in mid to late October there will be an increase in the intensity of aggression.

It has been encouraging to see young people speaking out about Climate Change all over the world now.  It is their future on the line.

It is time now, however, for all of us to get our priorities straight.

We can no longer concentrate only on our own lives and own families and our material concerns.

The shakeups in the world will get more and more intense, helping us all to shift and change.   The old paradigm and world are not viable anymore, and the leaders of this old world know it too. But they feel the Earth and Universe are under their control. And they try to make us all believe that crazy notion.

Many countries now are getting more nationalistic, more concerned for themselves and their own individual needs and desires.  But so many people now understand the need for us to come together, not apart.

Big and important transformation is upon us now, as it is time.

Many of us have known this time would come, and now it is here.

There can be no more “sitting on the fence”, trying to fit in to this disconnected dysfunctional  world while also helping to make a new and better one.

The new paradigm for the Age of Aquarius needs “all hands on board” now.  So we each need to detach from the dramas that bring us too much fear and rage-full hatred.

Get off the news shows if they get you too fearful and hateful. If you can, be more detached and aware of the bigger picture.

We can fight for a better world while also being in the flow of the Universe and big picture.

You can meditate more and most especially be around those who you can relate to, and away from people (even family) if their energies and opinions of you tend to bring you down into difficult places in your soul.

No matter how bad it looks out there, it is all part of the wheels turning toward an Age of Aquarius.

I understand that labor pains of birthing can be intensely difficult, as they are now and will continue to be.

And you can expect challenges to transform and evolve to increase as we move toward the next Eclipse Season in the winter coming up.

The first eclipse is on Christmas Day, a Solar Eclipse in early Capricorn.  The 2nd eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer is on January 10, 2020.

That Full Moon will include in its formation the exact conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Their exact conjunction is on January 12.

Those two planetary forces of power seek to destroy anything blocking the way of the powerful flood of Love and Truth that seeks to be a part of our collective consciousness on our way to the Age of Aquarius.

This winter will be an important turning point in our sacred soul journey

Then later, in December of 2020, a month or so after Election Day in the USA, Jupiter and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius, a certain symbol of the New Age.

For now, this week, be in tune with the balance of the Equinox.  And let the last quarter of the lunar cycle play out.

Then next Saturday the 28th, energies pick up again at the New Moon in Libra.

This time of year we are flipping the switch out of the concentration on self, and into the concentration on relationships and the knowledge that all is connected.

Till next week,

Leo

Time Marches On and Astrology Forecast September 15-21.

Posted in Uncategorized on September 14, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Energies shifting again this week, as we travel downhill into the waning half of the lunar cycle that began after last week’s Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces.

And the downhill speed picks up at the end of this week, as we enter the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle, one that began at the New Moon in Virgo on Friday August 30.

A new lunar cycle begins on September 28 at the New Moon in Libra.

This week brings us more inward and yin-ward because of the passing full moon, but there is an important shift this week on Wednesday September 18.

That is when time-keeper, hand of time god Saturn, starts time up again, so to speak, by changing directions from Retrograde to Direct.

In some way,  time stands still when Saturn is Retrograde, and this time Saturn was Retrograde starting on April 30 this year- till September 18 this week.

Look back at what was happening for you before Saturn went Retrograde. Then in your mind and heart, go over the time from April 30 to now.

Was anything put on hold back then? Are you ready now to move forward in some phase of your life?

Look at where Saturn is going Direct.  It is in Capricorn at around 14 degrees.

Keep in mind that Pluto will also go back direct soon- on October 3.

After that the two Direct planets, Saturn and Pluto, will be on their way to an exact conjunction with one another (their first since 1982).

That conjunction will be on January 12, 2020. It is two days after a Lunar Eclipse in Cancer,  an eclipse that will feature the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in its “signature”.

December 2019/January 2020 bring in the next Eclipse Season, and it will be a doozy.

It represents a major turning point in the USA and world.  We need to watch closely, between then and now,  for what is boiling over in regards to the Military/Industrial Empire.

Impeachment will either be rolling right along or taken off the table.  The direction of the economy and stock market should be much clearer by then.  Earth hot-spots in Israel, Syria, Iran, China, Russia, will either have blown up in a big way, or else have found a way to keep a firmer lid on hostilities.

But for now, this week, there is an important turning point as Saturn goes Direct on the 18th, about two weeks before Pluto joins it as a Direct moving planet.

Saturn goes Direct at 13+ degrees of Capricorn, closely opposite USA natal Sun in Cancer.  That means that while Saturn stays Direct (until May 11), difficulties tend to close up USA collective hopefulness.  Karma brings difficult events that feel fated.

Before Saturn’s turning this week, both Venus and Mercury moved out of Virgo and into Libra on Saturday the 14th of September.  Those two planets represent connections between people:  Venus is the planet known for connections of relating and relationships, of heart openings and love.  Mercury is known for communication, left-brain thinking, and collector and distributor of information.

Venus stays in Libra (where it is most comfortable) until October 8.  Mercury stays in Libra until October 3. Both go into Scorpio on those dates.

So for now with Mercury and Venus in Libra and the Sun joining them at the Autumn Equinox on September 23; there should be efforts to make peace in the world.

Netanyahu of Israel  stated this past week that Hamas needs to be destroyed by Israel. Trump’s “peace deal” is dead on arrival. India and Pakistan are at their worst with each other since many years ago. China and Russia have been losing faith in America as a world partner since the Trump has been in office.

Nevertheless, these planets in Libra should help efforts to make peace between peoples. At least temporarily, peace efforts will bring some hope.  When planets move into Scorpio in October/November raw instincts become stronger than efforts for peace.

On Thursday the 19th, the day after Saturn goes back Direct, Mars in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn. This makes close aspects to USA natal Mars, so watch for USA military and/or police to be triggered by world events.

If you check into your inner world,  you may be feeling more sadness or vulnerability.  This often happens as the dark minutes get longer each day on the way to the Autumn Equinox when light and dark are equal.

Also personal striving starts giving way to more appreciation for relationships and family, as darkness gets longer and stronger every day.

You may soon be changing your life priorities, as you become more aware of the fragility of life.

We have been getting “trained” by the Universe to be ready and aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius.

So many old ways of believing and living, ways that were conditioned by our culture, are no longer valid for the world we are moving into.

The old paradigm is getting more and more obsolete, yet those who have benefited most from it will hold on for dear life for its continuance.

It has no future.  New ways of living and governing that bring people together in fairness, kindness, and with mutual respect, will get stronger and stronger, even as the uglier attitudes seem stronger than ever.

After Jupiter and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius in December 2020, energies for an Age of Aquarius will grow by leaps and bounds. It represents the turning point into an Age of Aquarius.

That does not represent an immediate Utopia, and much old world darkness will still exist.

But the light of the New World will begin to shine more obviously then.  The Presidential elections will have happened the month prior in November.

This is a good time to stop complaining about Trump and being so obsessed with him. He is not the disease, instead he is a symptom of the disease.

The disease has been spreading for many decades, not just over the last few years.

And it is not just in America, but in the whole world.

The disease affects how we know the world we live in and the people in it.

So many people have ceased seeing the connections. The connections are everywhere, all around us.  Not knowing the connections is a direct result of the heart closing up.

So many traumas and wounds, abandons, and betrayals.  So many disappointments and disillusions. So much value given to what one owns and how much money one makes. The outer, material world holds the life values for so many.

Just as many who read this have awakened to the world inside the world, to the world of soul and spirit and greater mind; many more are on the way.

Remember that as the darkness sweeps up the old world in its death throes, a world of magic, love, truth, synchronicity, fairness, authenticity, meaning, and worldwide community is birthed.

This week stay aware of what is happening as hand of time Saturn starts up its watch again as it goes Direct this week.

It is Time now.

Till next week,

Leo

Full Moon Surrender and Astrology Forecast September 8-14.

Posted in Uncategorized on September 7, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week the planets do a dance of Virgo/Capricorn sober seriousness, somewhat offset again by high flying Jupiter and escape artist Neptune.

Mercury, Mars and the Sun all continue their movement through humble and service oriented Virgo this week.   And all three also are in the process of making easy connections with both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.  Saturn is gravity, and Pluto is guardian of the underworld.

If they threw a party, it would be held in a funeral parlor.

So this week it is good to look at issues you may have been avoiding, or issues that will help you to get more grounded, real, and insightful.

Interestingly, all three personal planets (Sun, Mars, Mercury) will also make aspects to Neptune and Jupiter.

Those aspects to Neptune may tend to make the new found realities feel less real, almost like an illusion.  You are getting out of your comfort zone, but all will be fine.

The aspects all three Virgo planets are making  to Jupiter in Sagittarius will tend to either upset the apple-cart of what you have been manifesting, or instead recent new events will tend to make you feel uplifted and hopeful.

And all of this planetary action is happening as we all view the Moon getting more full of light every day- until late Friday the 13th when it is officially a Full Moon in Pisces.

You do know that Friday the 13th represents a culture afraid of and tending to need to control the Feminine?

It is not just mere coincidence that Friday is Venus day in many cultures.  For instance in Italy Friday is Venerdi. That is Venus.

And even in English speaking countries, Friday actually come from Frida, another love Goddess.

How did that come to be that each day is named after a “planet”, like Saturn-day or Sun-day or Mo(o)n-day, etc?

And of course Friday the 13th has the number 13.  13 is considered a number of the Feminine, as there are 13 lunar months of the year, though we only really acknowledge the 12 solar months of the year.

So I am making the case that our culture fearing the mysteries of the Feminine leads to making Friday the 13th a day to be feared and considered a day of bad luck.

I am sure that some other stories are used to explain the origins of Friday the 13th being what it is, but I do believe that at least unconsciously it is a result of a fear of the Feminine- like a fear of the witches in Salem.

Cultures tend to like better “male” logical, rule oriented, “moral”, left-brain energies and attitudes.

The Feminine has for the most part been shunned and feared because it cannot be controlled or understood by being put in rigid boxes of thought.

To connect with this face of the Feminine, one must trust Nature, the Universe, life itself.

An overly developed Ego needs to control all around it and cannot tolerate the flowing, psychic mystical (Neptune)nature, or the free spirited joy for life (Jupiter).

So this week let go of over-controls and instead surrender more to the Universe.

The climax of the week will be at 12:33 AM EDT on the 14th.  At that time is the Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces.

The Sun will be in simple, efficient, material, order driven Virgo. The Moon will be exactly opposite in flowing, soulful, unifying, sensitive Pisces.

Both those signs are oriented toward making the ego less powerful.  Virgo is humble and “of service”.  Pisces is surrendered and often selfless and sacrificial.

So the combination gently pushes us to let go of ego, and to be a part of something greater.

To complicate matters, this Full Moon at 21+ degrees of Pisces is conjunct Neptune at 17+ degrees of Pisces.  And that same Full Moon is also square Jupiter at 16+ degrees of Sagittarius. And Pluto at 20+ degrees of Capricorn will be closely sextile the Full Moon.

So this usually very gentle Full Moon will be more energized this time, and should be quite transformational.

Events can occur now that nudge you forward into what you are ready for, but have previously been reluctant to embrace.

We have been sitting in this in-between state of consciousness, having waved goodbye to our old self and old chapter; but the new self and chapter have seemed to be evading us.

Let yourself surrender at this Pisces Full Moon and be trusting that we are proceeding as is needed. Complete clarity is not needed and is not available yet anyway.

The world out there looks like a real mess, headed for trouble.  Nothing seems certain, everything is in transition.   Hurricane Dorian has been rather unpredictable and kinda strange.  And where is Alabama now?

The economy is unpredictable too, and places like the Middle East seem to be ready for ignition.

None of it is under our control, but nevertheless each of us has control over how we think, what attitudes we have, what we believe, how we react, and what we say.

We do have the ability to trust the Universe to spin its wheels in natural rhythms that turn cycles and seasons as they need be.

We know where each planet will be at any given time. We know the Moon keeps regular schedules like a woman’s natural cycles.  We know life and death, beginnings and endings can be relied upon.

We know that all is progressing and evolving, no matter how it appears sometimes.

Now we are moving closer and closer to Autumn Equinox, which will be on September 23. This is such a beautiful time of year, when energies are balanced.

Many humans have come to believe Nature and the Universe are under their control. What a joke. Maybe under control for a “minute”, but not for long. This is like machines that keep dying people alive a little longer, but they will die anyway before too long.

We are at our best when we learn to dance with Nature and the Universe, not dominate it.

And we are at our best when we learn to dance with each other, not try to dominate and control one another.

Till next week,

Leo
