Year 2020 and Astrology Forecast December 29-January 4.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We enter a New Year 2020 this week, and it will be one alive and intense year ahead (Podcast Forecast coming in early January).

This week of transition between years 2019 and 2020 begins shortly after the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn from December 25/26.

That eclipsed new moon began a lunar cycle that includes a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer on January 10, the same day liberating Uranus changes directions from Retrograde to Direct.

Then 2 days later on the 12th, the important and powerful Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn.

This week now, we should be able to experience more of the reality and meaning of this Eclipse Season.

The holidays have to some extent distracted us from the energies and reality of this Eclipse Season.

If paying attention , however, we experience the partisan battle between Democrats and Republicans that will likely take Trump off the hook of being found guilty by the Republican run Senate. The Senate tries Trump and then votes for his guilty or innocent verdict. No matter what he gains infamy in American history.

This country has descended into a government that has lost the pulse of the American people, and in so doing gives more and more power to corporations and special interests that pay handsomely to the Senators and Congressional representatives.

The idealistic values set down in the American Constitution and Bill of Rights are being more and more drowned under by overly materialistic values and distorted needs for ultimate security above all else.

The lofty American values of equality for all, freedom of speech, and care for those who struggle have been brought down many notches and into the underworld’s value system.

This year 2020 presents a major turning point in regards to those values. The current administration pushes the envelope toward more power for the executive branch of government, meaning toward King Donald.

Yet 2020 gives the opportunity, through impeachment and elections, to reject those values and reject giving more power to the “kings and queens”.

1776 was to be the beginning of the end of rule by royalty or dictator, and instead give more power to the people.

So now we have the opportunity, through transformation of consciousness, to evolve into the people envisioned by the early leaders of the country.

The month of January 2020, as the first month of the year, sets the stage and creates the foundation for this important year ahead.

The Saturn/Pluto conjunction, which happens to be a close companion to the Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, is set to begin the process of destruction of soul dead elements of our world and its institutions.

Stock Market correction is likely this season, as the chart for the beginning of the Stock Market in America is being harshly triggered by the Saturn/Pluto conjunction and Lunar Eclipse this month. That chart is from May 17, 1792 in New York.

The Trump administration will do everything in its power to keep the market and economy looking prosperous, as a failure of the economy means automatic failure of the administration’s attempts to survive.

The trade war with China and breakdown of communication with North Korea will also come up to a major turning point this coming month.  North Korea is on the verge of creating more trouble. The state of Israel and showdown with Iran will likely also draw much attention this coming month.

In our personal lives this Eclipse Season, we can expect events that bring powerful messages of needs to release anything from the last chapter of our lives that keep screaming to be kept alive.

Saturn/Pluto can be ruthless, and so letting go is essential.  The New Chapter may have already showed you its promise, but no matter what- make sure to let go of what used to be. Your anger and/or guilt keep the old alive, even if you believe you let it all go.

This week on New Year’s Eve day of the 31st, the Moon is in Pisces much of the day.

However at 11 PM EST and 8 PM PST, the Moon goes into Aries. In Europe the New Year comes in with the Moon in Pisces.  In Africa and Asia, the Moon will be in Pisces at the yearly turning point.

But in America there will be a good connection with what is happening overall: The Pisces Moon is grieving and letting go; the Aries Moon is pushing forward and embracing the new.

On January 2nd,  Mercury in Capricorn makes exact conjunction with Jupiter in Capricorn, affording us the opportunity to have real and practical ideas for manifesting our dreams and making our lives work better.

On January 3, Mars leaves deeply serious and sometimes brooding Scorpio for more glory seeking Sagittarius.  What has been a “kept secret” Scorpio desire or emotion is released into the free spirit of Sagittarius.

Mars stays in Sagittarius until February 16. Use the Mars fiery placement now to take the leap of faith, to “take the ride” of your destiny, to go on the adventure, to know all is happening for a reason.

All the Capricorn energies now can help make some people feel trapped or confined or depressed.

But if you do allow yourself to open up and freely follow spirit now, you can use the Capricorn influence to stay grounded, to make real, to manifest in form.  This combo is great for recognizing the natural relationship that can be found between spirit and form.

That is our human experience. Free spirits and souls making home in a body in order to fulfill a function or purpose in our Earthly Human Community in this lifetime.

Issues and energies intensify this week, as we get closer to the important planetary configurations later this month.

Till next week,

Leo

Winter Solstice, Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn and Astrology Forecast December 22-28

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on December 21, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

I write this week’s forecast from a Hampton Inn just outside Tulsa Oklahoma on our way to Sedona.  The first few days were challenging with snow in upstate New York and snow blizzards in Ohio and Pennsylvania.  The last couple days have been more graceful and uneventful.  We should be in Sedona late on Sunday the 22nd.

Later today on Saturday the 21st at 11:19 PM EST there is Winter Solstice, a turn in the balance between yin and yang, dark and light.  Up till today the dark/yin was getting stronger and stronger; after today, light/yang begins to increase until Spring Equinox when they are equal, with light/yang continuing to get stronger every day.

As the days have been getting darker with the solar light dimming as it moved toward Winter Solstice, and with the lunar light dimming in the waning half of the lunar cycle; depressed feelings, fear  and negative thoughts have tried to have a stronger voice in our consciousness.

Yin connection with body and soul does not mean fear and negativity, but our culture which worships being “up” and “happy”, successful and “positive” too often conditions us to avoid the truth and wisdom of the body and soul, of the “Feminine”.   That results in fear being the substitute for natural and healthy Yin.

At this time of year with holidays showing love and deep connections, we are reminded of our common humanity, and that all of us get older and have difficult moments in life.  The Yin of our body and soul remind us of these common connections, of the big human family we all belong to, regardless of our differences.

After the 21st the light is showing at the end of the tunnel.  And on Thursday the 26th, the Moon gets ready to show some light after the New Moon in Capricorn at 12:13 AM EST.

All this time from the 21st through the 26th, it is a good time to meditate, to get in touch with the silence.  It is also a good time to reconnect with your soul’s wishes and to make clear intention for co-creation with the Universe.

This New Moon in Capricorn brings the Sun and Moon together in conjunction.  The solar cycle and lunar cycle join together at the New Moon in Capricorn, and the Solar Eclipse brings much more strength to the New Moon in Capricorn than the usual New Moon in Capricorn.

So the power of intention or resolution is stronger than usual. So also is one’s ability to plan to manifest, accomplish, build, organize, discipline, and make definite, to put an end to, and make commitment to.

Direction is more easy to find.  It is a good time to make real what was only an idea or dream.  But this new moon can also bring a time of disillusion, of the end of seeing life through rose colored glasses.

In the world this first of 2 eclipses will begin to bring down whatever has been in a bubble of fantasy.   The Stock Market and economy could be brought down to reality very soon now.  The reality of impeachment cannot be denied anymore.

More important than Trump’s presidency is the condition of the USA. It is being split in two, similar to when there was Civil War 1860-1865.

This is part of the process of transformation of our country and world, in transition between an Age of Pisces and an Age of Aquarius.

The Age of Pisces began with the birth of Christ in the midst of the Roman Empire. That Empire eventually broke down, and the birth of Christ became the Christian Church,  for better and worse.

Now the Roman Empire is the Military Industrial Complex of the USA and Western World, in the process of breaking down.  As consciousness expands and people evolve, the shape of spirituality and religion shifts, the importance of Christ consciousness evolves too.

Christ consciousness is now part of a Spiritual Renaissance for our world.   There is a return to spirit, to soul, to sacredness,  to deeper compassion, to connections with All, to love, to truth beyond the rigid rules or guilt of some religion.

Jupiter is conjunct the New Moon in Capricorn, adding more inspiration to one’s new ventures and projects.

Eclipse Season has just begun.  The second eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer on January 10, the same day liberating Uranus goes back Direct again.

Saturn and Pluto are opposite the Full Moon in Cancer and are exactly conjunct each other on January 12.

We will explain much more about this important Eclipse Season the next few weeks.

Till then,

Leo

From Dark to Light and Astrology Forecast December 15-21

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on December 15, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Moving further into Eclipse Season now, and a week closer to our first actual eclipse:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon at just over 4 degrees of Capricorn.

That Solar Eclipse New Moon will be followed by a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer at just over 20 degrees on January 10, 2020.

Saturn will be almost exactly conjunct Pluto in Capricorn that day making the Full Moon super important. Saturn will be exactly conjunct Pluto on January 12.

And back to the Lunar Eclipse on January 10, that same day has Uranus in Taurus at 2+ degrees changing direction from Retrograde to Direct,  making Uranus’ break out and break through energies more powerful than usual.

From now to the middle of Winter is a big turning point in human affairs here on Earth.  This Eclipse Season is even more important than the usual Eclipse Season which is always important.

Some will experience this Eclipse Season as a time of crossroad decisions, and each of us, if tuned in properly, will recognize the importance of this time period.

In individual lives, there are many breakthroughs in consciousness, seeing things from a new perspective, breaking away and liberating oneself from stuck places in the mind and heart.

So often we get stuck between 2 apparent possibilities we need to choose from. And it can be very stressful trying to figure out what to believe or what to do.

Uranus going back Direct now helps that decision making. Uranus is great at having us see outside the box of those two ways of looking at things. Often suddenly the light goes on and we see that those two choices have been very limited.

New possibilities and choices show themselves, as we are being liberated by Uranus’ inventive genius.

And with Saturn/Pluto and 2 eclipses, we have powerful tools of transformation we can use to move our lives forward.

Endings of one sort or another are in the cards for many people this Eclipse Season, and those endings can  be combined with very intense circumstances now. We need endings of old cultural models of behavior.

Look at our world right now.   The way politicians do business in the USA is all about money, ambition, and fighting to win.  Concern for the community as a high priority has been tossed aside since corporations were given such power in our system.

And the downing of systems, institutions, or other government structures is high on the list of what needs to transform into something more connected with the needs of our human community and Earth home.

Pluto in the next few years will be experiencing its first USA Pluto Return at 27+ degrees of Capricorn. This is from Natal chart of birth of USA on July 4 1776.

The Military/Industrial Complex running our country and much of the rest of the world is beginning to decay and unravel.  What is happening planetarily during this new Eclipse Season will show us more of what is coming down in that process.

Watch especially signs from the stock market, economy, military and police affairs- all that represents the Military Economic Empire.

In personal lives, days are darkening now, from both a lunar and solar point of view.  Since the Full Moon in Gemini this past week, the lunar cycle is in its dwindling waning half of the cycle- moon getting darker every day until the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on the 26th.

And the Solar cycle finds us waiting for the Winter Solstice, the darkest day of the year. It is on December 21.

Moods can be very affected by the nature of our seasons, cycles and planetary movements. The darkening of our lunar and solar cycles can mean depression for some or sadness or seeing the glass of our lives as half empty now.

For this week, on Sunday there is a Jupiter trine Uranus aspect that is a wake-up call of some sort for our personal lives and the life of our country and world.  This could be a nice motivating energy for people who feel stuck or depressed.

The last quarter of the lunar cycle begins on Wednesday with the Moon in Virgo.  The Moon will keep darkening until the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on the 25th/26th.

On Friday December 20, Venus leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius, where it will stay until January 13 when it enters Pisces.

In Aquarius Venus gets more into mind and social consciousness.  It is not very one -on one oriented, more concerned with group dynamics and social issues.

Then on Saturday the 21st, we enter one of four seasonal annual turning points: Winter Solstice at 11:19 PM EST.

Winter Solstice shows us the darkest time of year, but then that opens up the way for the light to begin to get stronger every day. It is the return of the light time, and Christ having his birthday at Christmas was very likely a result of the knowledge of the light returning on the darkest day of the year.

That signifies hope for a better day, and that better day is Spring Equinox when the growing light becomes equal in time to the dark.

Winter Solstice it is a good time to get in touch with the depths of one’s soul, of any sadness or angst that resides there.

This year Jupiter is conjunct the Winter Solstice. The Solstice begins at 0 degrees of Capricorn.  Jupiter that day is at 4+ degrees of Capricorn.  That makes hope more accessible as we turn to more light that Winter Solstice Day.

The first eclipse is only a few days after the Winter Solstice, so change is being felt by many now.

The Sun is in Capricorn at the Solstice and of course stays there for 31 days.  Capricorn is best making goals to be achieved, being busy with accomplishment, being its own taskmaster.

It sets a goal, like building something.  Then is makes a plan on how to accomplish the goal.  It then is expert at organizing, discipline, and taking responsibility.  It is good at creating structure or following the rules of an already built structure. It is good at making boundaries.

So at this time of year it is good to make resolutions, which is what  people do on January 1,  still Capricorn time of year.

The old structures and rules of our culture need transformational change.  This  Eclipse month will help us to do so.

I start my journey this week of driving to our new home in Sedona.  Should arrive there on Winter Solstice.  I got in touch this week with the love I have for the people in the area of Portland Maine.  Thank you so much for some of the best 16 years of my life.

Deborah and I got clear messages from spirit that it was time to move on, and we are very excited to enter our New Chapter in Sedona Arizona.

Till next week,

Leo

Full Moon Begins Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast December 8-14

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 7, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The waxing moon reaches climax this week as it becomes a Full Moon in Gemini at 12:12 AM on December 12.

And unofficially, Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 is energizing and alive.

That Eclipse Season will be important as a major turning point for our world and personal lives.

There is no more straddling the fence of indecision; no more trying to be in two different worlds at the same time. It is time to choose or at least know one has to choose.

This Eclipse Season will contain many highlights: 2 eclipses; Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; and Uranus shifting to Direct- out of Retrograde motion.

In the outer world we see a stock market in a big bubble ready to burst this winter; North Korea and China more intent on challenging the USA; Israel and Iran doing serious macho strutting with one another; and a USA impeachment process that is not headed for a peaceful solution.

In January, Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn at 22+ degrees of Capricorn will be closely opposing Trump’s natal Venus/Saturn conjunction in Cancer. His sense of stability and control will be seriously threatened. 

His natal Vertex, often a sign of “fated happenings” is at 22+ degrees of Capricorn, exactly conjunct the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12. This is a very difficult aspect for him.

This Saturn/Pluto conjunction is made even more potent as it is closely held inside the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon of Capricorn/Cancer at 20+ degrees of Capricorn on January 10.

Saturn and Pluto together are pretty serious. One (Saturn) is planet of time and gravity, while the other (Pluto) is the Guardian of the Underworld.  Together they are ruthless in destroying anything that is hanging around past its natural time of life.

This is a perfect time to eliminate the old ego stories that keep you stuck.  In some cases, it will be obvious that the old patterns need to go.  Remember that doing the same thing over and over again, looking for changes that will never come, is insanity.

And now Saturn/Pluto can help you to stop looking in the same places anymore for answers.  When you are committed to stop, new doors and windows will open, bringing in the fresh air of a new season for our lives.

I know it can feel daunting to enter new lands of possibility, and that the demon we know can be more appealing and less scary than strange situations we have never known.

But once in these new vistas of life, we let go into renewal and greater vitality.

And this week, as we begin to feel the breezes of the Eclipse Season that has its first eclipse on December 25/26, we are making ourselves be present and aware.

That consciousness will allow us to see and feel all the signs and symbols we need now, to keep us aligned and on track.

This current week begins in a bit of a misty fog in consciousness, as both the Sun and Venus make contact with Neptune on Sunday the 8th.

Wrestling with details and analytic mental processes is off the mark and will only bring confusion.  Best to surrender agenda with Neptune, just let go and surrender.

Mercury moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Monday the 9th, raising our mental vibration, being more open to inspiration and high-mindedness. It stays in Sagittarius until December 28.

Around the 9th, it is time to be in the aura of the approaching Full Moon in Gemini.  Before that exact full moon on the 12th, Venus makes exact conjunction with Saturn on the 11th.

Saturn conjunct Venus puts limits on the open heart’s natural give and take, and instead brings us more into “quid pro quo” negotiations to get you what you each want from each other.

The exact actual Full Moon in Gemini is on Thursday December 12 at 12:12 AM EST. (See all  the 12’s ?): 12/12 at 12:12 AM.   Twelve is a sacred number showing itself in the number of signs and houses of the zodiac and also the number of apostles of Jesus Christ.  It is considered more a sacred “male” number, while 13 is considered more a sacred female number.

For this new moon, we have the Sun in Sagittarius and the Moon directly opposed in Gemini at 19+ degrees.

This is usually a very animated time period, as people get more into communication. Conversations can be quite lively. Gemini provides the mental information and possibilities, while Sagittarius provides the conclusions, opinions and meaning.  Gemini is mostly left brain mental processing calculating and thinking, while Sagittarius is mostly intuitive “whole-making”.

With this Full Moon in Gemini, Neptune in Pisces is involved as it squares both the Sun and Moon.

Neptune may bring more confusion to the conversations at times, and at other times it will bring a deeper, more insightful and psychic approach to any issues.

Let the conversation take you and all will be fine.  Sometimes it is not the bottom line answers that matter the most. It is the connections between people that is most important.

Chiron goes Direct in Aries later on the 12th, building a bridge between your higher Self and your ego.

Then on Friday the 13th (one of my most favorite days), Mars in Scorpio trines Neptune while Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn.

Mars in Scorpio trine Neptune keeps our actions connected to our soul, so that our inner values keep our desires in bounds.

Venus conjunct Pluto in Capricorn brings more insight and deeper connection to our relationships.  Superficial has little chance of getting our attention now, instead we become more aware of our needs for depth and closeness with others.

My partner Deborah and I leave our home for the last 16 years, as we travel to our new home in Sedona on December 16.

Some of the most soulful, thoughtful, kind and conscientious people live in Maine and New England.  They will always remain deeply in my heart.

Till next week,

Leo
