Getting Ready for Greater Transformation and Astrology Forecast April 26- May 2

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This last week brought us a New Moon in Taurus on Earth Day.  Taurus is a fixed Earth sign, and the Planet Earth is pretty fixed as our home.  And Earth Day has represented through the years our desires to clean up and heal this planet and the environment surrounding it.  

Taurus as fixed Earth is also our ability to earth, to make real, to build resources and security, and to manifest what has been previously only an idea or inspiration.

So this week we carry the New Moon in Taurus’ recent movements forward with some momentum, as the lunar cycle is in its waxing half, moving up to the Full Moon.

That Full Moon will be next week on May 7.  It will be a powerful Full Moon in Scorpio, which is also the Wesak Full Moon, associated with Buddha and Buddhism.

Speaking of power, the weekend that begins this week, Saturday April 25 and Sunday April 26, is intense and transformational.   Pluto changes direction from Direct to Retrograde on the 25th, and the Sun conjuncts Uranus on the 26th.

This could be a very intense and difficult time period for some, as emotions will tend to break open and rise to the surface.

Too add to the theme of change being in the air this weekend, Mercury squares both Pluto and Jupiter on the 25th.

When a planet changes directions, for a couple days surrounding that movement, that planet’s energy and meaning are more alive than usual.

Pluto is intensity, passion, and power, and as such moves deeply within our consciousness, bringing to the surface what has been previously held in abeyance.

And as that Pluto makes square to Mercury (along with Jupiter), it moves strongly through our minds, helping us to release old ego stories.

As it works to release those old stories, it is opening our minds to the potential of new ways and a new chapter of our lives.

This time in isolation has been a great time for inner reflection and connection with our inner world.  And Pluto can help the process of looking at deeper issues we have been previously distracted away from.

Then overnight from the 25th into the 26th, the Sun makes conjunction with Uranus in Taurus- waking us up from any dependencies or “comfort zones” that have been holding us back.

That aspect may also help us to connect with new comforts, pleasures, money making ideas, or manifesting what we are now ready for.

Those waves of transformation will likely still be experienced on Monday.

Tuesday when Mercury, having Monday just entered Taurus, makes tight square with Saturn in Aquarius, we may begin to get more realistic, or more aware of potential limits.

On Thursday the 30th, the Sun in Taurus makes square to the Moon in Leo, giving us a turn into the 2nd quarter of the Lunar Cycle.

Our heart will spontaneously be wanting to come alive, and as such may be bored by any needs we have had to stay in our Covid “comfort” zones.

In the world there is a desire now to be more alive and get back out into life and work.

It will be very important, being aware of this desire now, to find a balance between being safe (Taurus) and creatively alive (Leo).

Many will want to keep playing it safe with Covid, while others are wanting to open up and experience more and be ready to get back to work and make money.

Both desires will need to be honored and worked out somehow. Each person will need a different balance than do others.

But of course we all also need a sense of responsibility to the collective, to others who are more susceptible to serious illness and death. This is now a difficult turning point for our human family handling this pandemic.

And in late May the winds of change will begin to flow in  at the beginning of another Eclipse Season. Then in June/July comes the intensification of  metaphorical storm clouds (maybe actual ones also), accompanied by big shifts in the world.

In June/July there are 3 eclipses, not the usual 2:  June 5 Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius; June 21 Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on Summer Solstice; and July 4/5 another Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, this time in Capricorn.

Additionally and importantly, Jupiter will make another exact conjunction with Pluto at the end of June also- again at 24+ degrees of Capricorn ( same degree of conjunction as in early April.

This time period, which is the next Eclipse Season since the one in January that opened the gates for what would become the Corona Virus that has shaken up all of our lives all over the world, will initiate the next wave of change and transformation.

The Presidential Election process will go through some new twists and turns as a result of this new Eclipse Season.  There will also be important turning points with our relationship with Covid 19 then.   And countries will tend to test one another during their vulnerabilities from the Virus.   Spotlight potentially on China, North Korea, Iran, Israel, Russia, Ukraine, Pakistan, India.

At the same time, during this new and longer Eclipse Season, positive transformations will open up as they did after the last Eclipse Season.

The sequestration from the Covid at the last Eclipse Season has helped us to turn inward, to shift priorities, to be more aware of how this world is in big trouble and needs to transform (from before Covid).

The world’s economic system is transforming now and will never be the same; America’s reputation is greatly suffering as it has lost connection with its core values; oil is a dying energy resource; we need to join people all over the world in unity as we are all members of the same Human Family.

And in personal lives people are getting more in touch with their true wants and needs; more aware of their need to be authentic and live authentic lives; more aware of the need to have better relationships; more aware of a need to have genuine purpose for their lives; more aware of the need to be a member of community, community that reflects a need to be with others of common purpose.

The Universe has called us together for these world challenges.  We are on the ride together into the Age of Aquarius; an Age of Equality between nations, cultures, and people; of Diversity within Unity; an Age of having Love and Truth light our human evolution into its higher destiny; and creating a more solid bridge between “Heaven and Earth”, between Soul and Body.

Please join me on Saturday May 9 at 10:30 AM Pacific Daylight Time for a Webinar on Zoom.  This Webinar will help give you a Bigger Picture of our world and human challenges now; an astrological viewpoint of America, Trump, Biden, Cuomo, Warren, Israel, China, North Korea, other leaders and countries, and the Stock Exchange; a deeper view of our human condition and evolution into the New Human and Age; a look at the potential for other worldly Visitations; and of course some ideas for how to understand and navigate the transformation of our individual consciousnesses and lives that we now face.

Cost is $20.  Write me at soulus@aol.com to register and/or for more information.

Till next week,

Leo

Revolution and Astrology Forecast April 19-25

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on April 18, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Please remember that we are in transition between Ages- moving from a now dying Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. 

The Age of Pisces began around the birth of Jesus Christ, maybe 100 or 200 years before that birth.

The Christ birth turned into the Christian religion.  Anything in the name of Christ is Pisces, the sign of compassion, sacrifice, soul, and even savior.

The opposite sign of the sign of an Age is important- actually together they create the New Age.

Virgo is the sign opposite Pisces and Virgo in this case represents the material plane, distinctly opposite the soul plane of Pisces.

An old expression, paraphrased is ” Give unto Caesar or give unto Christ” .

The Roman Empire existed at the same time as Christ and the birth of the Christian Religion.

And so this was the first look at an important theme for the Age of Pisces: working with the dichotomy of body and soul.

Religions often speak of the soul leaving the body after death and being weighed for entrance into heaven or hell.

The Muslim religion had its beginnings with Mohammed- who existed just a few hundred years later in the 7th Century AD.

These two religions have been the most influential ones for the masses of humanity.

On the Virgo side of materialism, there have been many Empires: Roman, Ottoman (Turkey), British, Spanish, Soviet Union, and now the last Empire of the Pisces Age- the USA Military Industrial complex which is expanded to include Europe and NATO and Israel.

Israel is of course the root religion for both Muslim and Christian. It is root religion for believing in the One Male God .

This is much different from what came previously- the many Gods and Goddesses of Rome and Greece.

And now we face the transformation of both Empires and Religions.

Empires transform into Aquarian Age ideals of Equality and Diversity in Unity.  No Empires, becoming more like the United Nations, but without a Security Council of states that rule over all the other countries with more privilege to decide how the world is run- Russia, USA, China, Britain, and France.

And traditional religions transform into individuals connecting directly to the God Force or Universe, whatever words one uses for the Spirit realm of consciousness.

At the Uranus/Neptune conjunction in the early 1990’s, humanity gave more attention to the Social Networks (Uranus) and the Soul realm (Neptune).

The early 90’s also brought us to the computer and internet revolution, another outgrowth of Uranus conjunct Neptune.

Remember that the 3 transformational planets are Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. They were discovered respectively in 1781, 1846 and 1930.

Uranus in 1781 synchronized with the revolutions of  the USA and France. Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius, and is about revolution, rebellion, liberty, awakenings, Diversity within the Unity of the greater community, freedom of expression, and people power without needing of Kings, Queens, Dictators or anyone else who dominates the will of the people.

Neptune in 1846 synchronized with Karl Marx and the industrial revolution which was generally abusive and unfair to the people, whose souls suffered as peons of Big Industry.

And in 1930 Pluto synchronized with Ghandi and the civil disobedience of the Indian people against the Power of the British Empire.  This was about people knowing their own Power- the Power of the People. Britain soon after left India to rule themselves.

We can see how the world on the way to the Age of Aquarius, needed to move beyond the energy and messages of a world that had Saturn as the planet furthest away from Earth.

In that position it became the One God of the Old Testament, the 10 commandments, linear thinking, a sense of limitation, and of consequence for breaking rules or committing sins.

Saturn is also “the end”, death, Father Time and the Patriarchy.

You can see how Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are the ambassadors for the consciousness needed to usher in the Age of Aquarius.

And this year is an important crossroad on the way into the Age of Aquarius. In December 2020 is an important turning point into that Age when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.

Will speak much more about all this in other forecast blogs this year.

And these issues will be in the spotlight of the webinars I will give on May 9, June 5 and July 11. All begin at 10:30 AM Pacific Time and will last till noon or 12:30 PM.

If interested please write to me at soulus@aol.com. Cost is $20 for each webinar, and you can attend one, two or all 3. If you want to listen to the first one too from early April it will be $70 for all, which will include a recording of the April webinar.

Purpose of the webinars is to help in understanding what is going on in our world, to get a bigger picture and deeper insight into our journey now. And this includes all of our personal journeys now too, learning how to navigate this passage into the Age of Aquarius.

This week there is a shift into Taurus energies. The Sun moves into Taurus on April 19 and the Moon joins the Sun in Taurus at 3+ degrees of Taurus- to form a New Moon in Taurus on Wednesday April 22 at 10:26 PM EDT.

Early this week we are in the dark moon phase of the lunar cycle, giving us pause to reflect  before the New Moon on the 22nd. Resist urges to be depressed.

Of course most have been given the ability for finding greater inner connections with the Virus keeping us at home.

Taurus seeks to consolidate, to manifest, to make more solid and/or comfortable. It takes in better than it gives out, and often wants to hold onto very tightly what it has let in.

And that includes people or possessions. It can become very possessive.

And as a fixed earth sign it will hold firmly to what it wants or believes in. Its reputation for being stubborn has been well earned.

Money and material security are very important to Taurus.   The country’s desire now to focus more on money and economy and somewhat less on the Virus which keeps everyone at home, is connected to this Taurus need, which is for better and worse it seems.

Toward the end of the week on Saturday April 25, Pluto shifts from Direct to Retrograde, putting the often explosive energy of Pluto front and center after the New Moon in Taurus.

And early next week on the 26th the Sun conjuncts Uranus in Taurus.

Pluto and Uranus both being strong at the end of this week and beginning of next week, promises some important shifts, shifts that will help us to transform our consciousness more aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

In the Dark and Astrology Forecast April 12-18

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is Easter holiday weekend for most Christians around the world and Passover for the Jewish people in the world. And now with Covid as the major focus for most people all over the world, Easter and Passover promise to be different than usual.

Mainly that is true because families may not be able to be together, as is usual for Easter, as stay at home “orders” will be respected by many if not most people in the world..

Hypothetically, if the “powers that be” in our world wanted to have a vulnerable frightened world citizenship to dominate and control,  circumstances now would be quite favorable for them.

For the most part, people are “sitting ducks” now.  But of course believing that would be paranoid, wouldn’t it?

On the other hand, this virus is providing many gifts to our human family here on Earth.

We are being “forced” to stay home and not be so driven to accomplishing and getting things done as usual.  This time at home is helping some to develop new habits of meditating and exercising, etc.

And if you live with someone who also needs to stay home, you have a much better opportunity now for closer intimacy.

And of course being at home so often can give a person time to gain greater perspective and deeper insight into one’s life.

A good portion of Americans, I believe, have been programmed by culture and family to have love conditional on meeting certain standards.  Getting things done, making big money, accomplishments, etc are criteria for receiving love.

Just Being your self, with no accomplishments or successes, is not conducive to being loved for so many people.

Just Being your self and receiving Love is only meant for infants and very young children it seems.

Look at Trump and all his bragging and strutting and lying .  He does all that because he feels he needs to be the best, really special in order to be loved and respected.  Probably a Father wound is the culprit.

That is how narcissists are created.  Underneath all the bravado is a little boy who suspects he is a loser in his Father’s eyes. And early on he develops drastic compensation behaviors in order to get that love he desperately wanted and did not get.

Even becoming the leader of the most powerful country in the world cannot fill the hole of being unloved that sits inside him.

Having compassion for him is good.  But this does not mean one should feel sorry for him.   Every “villain” is the world, Hitler or Manson, etc. has a sad story from childhood.

Every man who beats a woman has had a childhood that can explain how he became such a monster.

But so many people have had the same kind of experiences or worse, and yet they become kind people, and often the best healers in our community of humans.

I am not comparing Trump to those “villains” in the human historical script, but nevertheless the path to being a certain kind of person has similarities.

Understanding someone helps us to not demonize, helps us to finding solutions to some of humanity’s old toxic dysfunctional patterns of behavior, But it does not condone or take away a person’s responsibility to being held accountable.

Christ’s lessons for having compassion for those who are the least lovable should not be lost on us.

By taking “Demon” off another’s face, we are transforming out of the “black or white” consciousness that gives only two options: hating the horrible person or feeling sorry for the victimized person.

Transformation in this case brings us deeper insight and greater understanding. That will assist us in using clear sight, mind and heart in order to transform our consciousness aligned with a new world and Age.

This week, which is after last week’s Full Moon in Libra, brings us through a darkening lunar phase.

In fact, the 4th quarter of the Moon’s cycle begins on Tuesday the 14th, with the Moon in Capricorn square the Sun in Aries.

Aries wants to push forward fast, while Capricorn is more cautious. A current dilemma needing to be solved now fits that lunar message.

The decision to be made soon- is to either go beyond the stay at home rules in order to open up the economy; or on the contrary to wait longer in order to avoid potentially even worse conditions for the virus.

That decision is so important now.

There will be much powerful energy attached to that 4th quarter Moon, as the Sun will make exact square to the recent Jupiter conjunct Pluto aspect from last week. That happens on April 14/15. Both Jupiter and Pluto will be triggered by that Sun in Aries.

Jupiter takes the high road of positive expectations, while Pluto takes the low road of being in touch with the pain and suffering that can result from the lack of caution.

Trump calls it the most important decision of his life and I can see why, on so many levels.

This week, we will be staying in the downward trek of the 4th quarter Moon awaiting the new beginnings of a new moon.

That new moon is next week on April 22, the New Moon in Taurus.

Remember that Aries gets the ball rolling, starts the process, just as the Aries beginning of Spring shows us buds coming through to begin forming growth of leaves on the branches.

Then in May Taurus Time,  Spring time truly manifests as full blooming.

Moving forward with new ideas happens in Aries. Then the “fixed earth” Taurus makes manifest, and then stubbornly will not budge from what has been made manifest.

In your life, what is ready to be made manifest? What needs your commitment for it to be made successful?

Be ready for a powerful shift this week.   Something big seems to be waiting to happen soon.

Till next week

Leo

Jupiter conjunct Pluto and Astrology Forecast April 5-11.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on April 5, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this we are about 6 hours away from the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn at almost 25 degrees.

This conjunction is a marking point for our transformational journey this year.

Saturn/Pluto along with two eclipses was a major marking point this past winter.  The resulting coronavirus and stock market fall have changed our lives in ways we cannot yet fully comprehend.

The Jupiter/Pluto conjunction will also show the way, through events that are representative of the energies those 2 planets express.

The last Jupiter/Pluto conjunction was at the end of 2007, when the housing market and economy began to show weakness.  The crisis that ensued lasted through 2009.

Prior to that 2007 conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto was the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction in 1981/1982 when the first case of HIV in the USA was experienced. These conjunctions happen every 12-13 years.

The 1968 conjunction of Jupiter/Pluto was just previous to the one in ’81/’82.  Of course that year both Dr. King and Bobby Kennedy were assassinated. 

When Jupiter and Pluto met in 1918, the Spanish Flu was killing so many people. There were 50 million Spanish flu deaths that year.

Some really dramatic events have happened in years Jupiter was conjunct Pluto.  And there was an emphasis on biological disease: Spanish flu, HIV, coronavirus.

Saturn/Pluto conjunctions have also brought with it powerful events that shook up and transformed our world.

In 1914 World War I began. The next Saturn/Pluto conjunction was in 1947.

That year the UN approved the new state of Israel, and the IMF and CIA were both created that year.

And most importantly The Roswell Incident occurred as a UFO and extraterrestrials were discovered in New Mexico.

At the last Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1981/’82,  there was another financial recession.

And in Beirut Lebanon over 307 people, 241 who were USA Marines were bombed and killed.

The Saturn/Pluto exact conjunction will not happen again this year, but Jupiter/Pluto will happen two more times: in June and in December.

Overall it is very rare when Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are so close together in Capricorn.

They are bringing us down into our bodies and deeper into our souls. At those places we come back to reality and some truth we may have been ignoring. Manic episodes, as in a bull run in the stock market, are being replaced by a more sober state of our collective mind.

From this grounded and deep place, we start to know we are all in this life together, as anyone can get sick regardless of wealth or nationality or race or religion.

Unfortunately this sober state of mind can for some turn into depression or even despair as the bubble of fantasy is burst open.

The Jupiter/Pluto conjunction is Saturday 4/4/4 at 10:45 PM EDT.  Intensity has been rising and something feels like it wants to break open and be released.

That process of release will be exacerbated by Mars square Uranus and a Full Moon in Libra on Tuesday the 7th of April.

Mars in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus seeks to break out of any boxes of control one finds oneself in. There is a liberating feeling to it that does not tolerate being stuck or controlled.

You need your independence and freedom in order be your authentic self, and to express your truth.

On that same April 7 day there is a Full Moon in Libra at 10:35 PM EDT.  The Full Moon plus Mars square Uranus plus still being within the aura of Jupiter conjunct Pluto, provides much intensity to navigate for a few days, probably till Thursday the 9th of April.

The Full Moon in Aries/Libra and Mars in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus have in common a need now to find balance between independence and freedom on the one hand, and being relational and social on the other hand.

This month is supposed to bring some increased difficulty with the Virus, as well as more downward movement for the stock market and economy.

This is the darkness associated with the decay and downturn of the old world now.  The leaders of the old world will fight tooth and nail to be able to return to the normalcy of that old paradigm.

And most regular people will also try really hard to bring back the old normal. And maybe sometimes it will feel a little like it is back.

But it will not come back. The Saturn/Pluto conjunction is merciless.  Saturn’s pull down of gravity and Pluto’s pull downward under the surface can be ruthless in satisfying their agenda.

And their agenda is to erase what is spirit-less and soul-less, that which is only form and structure without inner spirit.

This virus is bringing many to feeling deeply again in their souls, feeling more humble, and being more aware of others’ pain and suffering.

The downturn of the stock market and economy is bringing many to the place of appreciating what they have, of being grateful for the people in their lives and the comforts they have enjoyed.

There is more to come.   Many of us have been controlled by our habits and devices,  and not really appreciating or grateful for our lives and the people in it.

These harder times materially will help people to feel more from their hearts and souls and not be so controlled by their egos and chattering minds.

There is a new reality forming, and we will not know exactly what that means for awhile.  We do know however, that the Age of Aquarius is real, and that much of what is leaving is of an old age that has programmed people to believe life is a competition for survival of the fittest, that all and everyone is separate, and that those who live different lives than us are our rivals or even our enemies.

The greatest thing about the new reality is the knowing that all is connected and that life is meaningful.  The dots of the Universe are connected and opposites are meant to be joined in wholeness even if living with vast difference from one another.

Yin/yang symbols say it all so simply.  Dark and light, male and female, hot and cold, up and down, “heaven” and “hell”, Yin and Yang are all gathered in the circle of wholeness, as is our Earth, Moon and Sun.

Look at them in the sky:  perfect circles.  That is the Universe showing us the truth of wholeness.

Now as we learn to let in the growing return of the Feminine, we learn that circles are what represent ultimate truth.

Straight lines are contained within the circles of life, even in simplest terms.

The male straight line is contained inside the circle of female.

The dark and light halves of Yin/Yang are held in wholeness inside the circle of the Yin/Yang symbol.

Separation is held by the circle of wholeness. How did we collectively lose that sense of Truth?

Now it returns, but there is an old reality that has programmed so many to believe differently.

Even in its power, the true “Feminine” represents not power over or against, but the power to bring all opposites in relationship with one another.

Till next week,

Leo
