Time of Intensity and Passion and Astrology Forecast October 20-26

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 19, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week shows signs of a decided downturn with a growing need to feel safe,  nurtured, at home, and peaceful.

The Moon in Cancer helps us to feel that way, especially so since that Moon in Cancer  shows us the beginning of the last quarter of this current lunar cycle, which effectively ends on October 27 at the New Moon in Scorpio.

This current cycle began at the New Moon in Libra on September 28, merely a week after Autumn Equinox, which is symbolic for a setting Sun in a darkening landscape.

And as we enter this 4th quarter of the waning, darkening Moon, we are energetically preparing ourselves for the Sun entering Scorpio on October 23, then waiting for the Moon to join that Sun in a New Moon in Scorpio on October 27 at 11:39 PM EDT

The sign Scorpio is “ruled” by Pluto, guardian of the underworld. So our experience deepens this week, opening doors into more intense feelings and emotions.

The Sun has been in Libra for the last month, and as such put us on a plateau of relative peace and contentment.

And some of you must be snickering at the phrase “peace and contentment” describing recent times. In contrast to what is coming, it was.

Since Saturn is right now widely conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, there is no escaping the feelings of sadness, grief, and/or fear for our world and our lives.

Those feelings will deepen even more starting this week, as we wait for a quite powerful  exact conjunction of Saturn and Pluto happening along with Winter Eclipse Season (2019/20 this coming December and January.

Our world is in turmoil now, and we are looking for signs of clarity and direction to light the path in front of us.

Impeachment inquiries are happening already, with more intense and dramatic moments ahead of us.

Remember it is the Military/Economic Empire that “rules the world” as major transformation to it is meant to happen.

So cracks in its foundation show themselves through difficulties with the economy, police, and military of the USA.

The Commander in Chief resides in his own little Walter Middy world, starring in his made up movie, where he is always right and heroic.

Unfortunately that “make believe” world clashes with the “real” and dangerous world all around us now.

Yet we know his presidency was meant to be, as we now see a new world developing that can give us hope.

That new world can take its first baby steps into the Age of Aquarius after the Presidential Election in November 2020.

In December 2020 Saturn makes exact conjunction with Jupiter at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, evidently symbolic of a New Age.

Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions bring us a 20 year cycle that is based on socio-cultural changes for that time period.

Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions can initiate extremely important time periods.

Every time there was a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in the past, the USA president at the time died while still in office.

Check out Lincoln, FDR,  Kennedy, etc.

The “spell” broke in 1981 when Reagan was shot but lived through it. Jupiter/Saturn made conjunction in 1980/81.

Then Bush was president at the next Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Taurus in 2000/2001.  No death or almost death, but 9-11 happened during Bush’s first year in office.

So we can expect vitally important events after the next Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius on December 21, the day of the Winter Solstice.

So hang in there this approximate year before the Election and Jupiter/Saturn conjunction.

We need to clear up and clean out the old paradigm and its leaders.  If cleaning out that world and its leaders is not done with a sense of finality, we still remain, in our consciousness, in that old world. Fearing it or hating it keeps it alive.

It is what they represent that we are clearing out, so “we the people” can begin to take responsibility and stewardship of our world and lives.

The Age of Aquarius brings group consciousness to the forefront.  Kings, queens, dictators, emperors do not fit in. And the current USA president has man crushes on all the dictator/strong men of our world, like Putin.

He must be the reincarnation of King George, who was the ‘mentally touched” British king during the USA revolutionary war that paved the way for the new world of United States of America.

Maybe George is giving it another try.  He will lose again.

But more important is our return to our “better angel” values, and deep connecting with the values of the new paradigm of the Age of Aquarius.

“Skies” darken more this week for the old world energies and values. Let it go, especially inside your self.

The Scorpio New Moon on the 27th brings a coming out of more primal energies, and a letting go of Libra politeness and nicety.

This is good for sex and eating and bringing back previously suppressed passions.  But it is not so good at keeping the peace.  Scorpio does hold back sometimes, but when it opens back up can be ferocious.

This is usually a good time for processing deep seated concerns. If you keep it bottled up for too long, it hurts your body, and builds up more and more resentment.

Scorpio time is also a good time for purging most anything.  Keep in mind that some of these emotions may be filled with much venom. Jealousy, rage, betrayals, and other such emotions can be felt and expressed now.  Did I say sex can be great now too?

So this week brings us the beginning of the last quarter of the Moon’s phase on Monday the 21st.

Venus in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces that day also, which shows up as a woman in her sexual power, one who can also open into the many facets and faces of the Goddess.  Take in the mystery surrounding her presence.

Then the Sun goes into its month long stay in Scorpio, as we let in more darkness. Darkness can feel very safe sometimes, like being in a dark room alone or meditating into a deep space.

Then on Friday the 25th that same Scorpio Venus Goddess meets up in sextile with Pluto in Scorpio. The guardian of the underworld and Venus together can bring a deep understanding of how the current world and its leaders owe some karmic payments.

Then on Sunday the 27th is a New Moon in Scorpio. This New Moon brings us the intensity and passion we need now in order to lock into the focused energies we need.  Superficial play time is over.

Remember that Saturn and Pluto are headed for their powerful exact conjunction in January 2020, which will be a year to be long remembered.

Till next week,

Leo

Full Moon Transformations and Astrology Forecast October 13-19

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on October 12, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week begins with a very powerful Full Moon in Libra/Aries that makes a very close square to Pluto; and Pluto is stronger than usual and is still moving relatively slow, because it went back Direct as recently as October 3.

So we experience the usual back and forth archetypal polarity between Aries and Libra, which  is also duality between Mars and Venus,  yang (Mars, Aries)  and yin (Venus, Libra), or male (Mars) and female (Venus).

And as it becomes a futile attempt for connection and balance between these opposites, Pluto then tends to blow it all up for a reboot.

And so many people this last week have had “on the edge” experiences- relationship breakups; deaths;  injury or illness with friends and pets;  job loss or job challenges; or needs to leave their homes soon.

This is Pluto’s influence on it all, an explosive energy intent on breaking down old ways, then providing space and time for new birth.

And this is just a transformational appetizer, as the big meal of transformation is December/January.  At that time we will be in Winter Eclipse Season with two eclipses, one of which connects with the not usual conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.

Out in the mainstream world, much at times feels very dark, disconnected, and hopeless.

Leadership in USA now is inconsistent, self focused, defensive, hateful, and apparently not really concerned with doing what is right and honorable. Truth and Love do not have fertile ground for growth and many people are quite frightened.

We are coming up to the “dark before the dawn” chapter of our collective lives.

The rot of the old paradigm is getting smellier and more ugly.  We need to let it go. We need to bury it.

There is no real hope in bringing back the Obama years, or the ’60s or “80s, or to more innocent times gone by.

Bu we are quite able to enter a new and different consciousness frequency, one connected to the Age of Aquarius, Truth and Love, Diversity Within Unity.

But each of us needs to let go of our being locked up in our heads, of our needs to be in control all the time, of our fears running our lives and making our decisions.

At the same time as our mainstream world feels like it is being sucked into some black hole of ego despair,  I can feel more connections and Love all around, and much more ability to find Truth within the trickster deflections.

In the human collective there are lower and higher frequencies to be immersed into. The lower ego frequency is what much of the mainstream world revolves around.  The higher frequency of the divine God/Goddess realms is where those who are evolving can better connect with.

But ultimately it is the marriage between the two that takes us forward in our evolution. And Chiron is the bridge between the two realms.

We must feel our human feelings and hear our ego’s fears, but they cannot be in charge.  Running the show needs to be left in the loving hands of our Higher Self, our Heart and Soul, our connection to Spirit.

On Sunday the 13th at the Full Moon in Aries at 5:08 PM EDT, with Pluto exactly squaring that Moon and Jupiter exactly trining that Moon, there  are differing energies trying to connect with one another. Some wanting to fly up higher, some wanting the depths below.

Best bet is to let go of control, of our controlling minds, and surrender to the vast waters of outer space, to the Love and Truth that move through the veins of the Universe and into you and me.

Meditate, get lost in nature or music or loving connections with your soul family.

On Monday October 14 the Sun squares Pluto, which means that the prince of the dark underground Pluto wants to connect with the shining hope of the Sun in balanced Libra.

So Pluto will carry the shining Sun into the underground lair of Pluto.  One of Pluto’s faces is Kali, and she always desires to carry inflated ego heads into her inner dungeon of atonement, which is at-one-ment.

Down there on her shelves are the heads of those who were filled with hubris, like Nixon and Clinton.

She has an empty space waiting for the Donald. It will not be too much longer before he arrives, by hook or crook as they say- by impeachment or election loss.

But we must all learn our lessons through all of this. We Americans have created this.  When the highest priorities of a culture are materialistic, with such strong needs for fame and fortune, it creates Donalds as out-growths of those priorities.

So we are cleaning up and purging our old ways that are so divorced from our “better angels”.

Each of us needs purpose in our lives, each of us has a function within the larger community.  This is Age of Aquarius consciousness, a social consciousness.

Climate Change is recognized in our social consciousness, in our desires to care for the future of the human family here on Earth.

Paying attention to our material needs is important too, as it reflects our reality right now.

But it does not need to be our highest priority. Saving our world and future is our highest priority. Within that paradigm, we learn to survive and thrive on the material plane too. It is not black or white.

So we are then spiritual beings living in a material world, needing material support to hold our higher values and to help manifest those values into solid structures on Earth.

We are not instead material beings searching for spiritual support and meaning, so we can keep our more base values in control of our existence.

As we are experiencing now, all is rapidly changing- death of the old is coming in more forcibly and frequently.

So let any chains on your legs be released. It is time to break free of anything holding you back from your authenticity and from your higher values.  As you choose to move forward now, assistance will be there for you, from other planes of existence if needed.

And yes we can feel the breath of beings from somewhere else disclosing their existence on this plane of reality.

We are meeting them half way between our usual frequencies and theirs.

Stop giving the Donald so much attention and power.  Concentrate on your higher values, your function and purpose, on your heart desires.  We cannot let our demons run our minds and hearts with fear and hopelessness.

Till next week,

Leo

Strong Full Moon in Aries and Astrology Forecast October 6-12

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Is that light we seem to be seeing at the end of the tunnel real or the result of tampering? Knowing what is real or not real is not as easy to ascertain as it used to be.

Are the facts we are presented real or made up?

Who is telling the truth and who is not?

With the ability to alter a picture or a film, is what one is seeing real or not?

Listen to news show and hear the spin that news commentators use to persuade you, not inform you.

These are the tools that the old age and paradigm “use” to keep consciousness confused and stuck.

“Stuck and confused” is somewhat similar to “divide and conquer’ as both conditions dis-empower, break apart, and leave people feeling separate, weaker and more vulnerable to bullying and power abuses.

Therefore coming together as confident participants in a new global community paradigm has big challenges.

If this sounds like paranoid ravings about a deep state or some other projected enemy, that is not my perception or intention.

This is all happening inside our human collective consciousness, in my estimation not from some horrible enemy from the material world.  The horrible enemies result from our soul struggles.

The old paradigm does not let go voluntarily.  The new paradigm is not embraced so easily. We battle with ourselves.

Our ego self is used to running the show, and it certainly runs the old paradigm.

The “Authentic Higher Self” is guided by Soul and attached to the Universe and its natural cycles, energies, and patterns.

We have been taking some time to acknowledge, try on, and accept this new paradigm and each of our purposes’ within it.

We have decisions to make, directions to take, and most importantly commitments to adhere to.

Prior to the next Mercury Retrograde it would be beneficial to know where we are going, when we go, and how to we do what we need to do.

Mercury goes Retrograde on October 31 (Samhain/Halloween), and does not go back Direct until November 20. Two days later on November 22, the Sun goes into free spirited Sagittarius.

Then on the 26th there is a New Moon in adventurous Sagittarius, followed by mystical Neptune going Direct on November 27.

Then in mid December, Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 begins. The highlight of that eclipse season is a very powerful Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn exact conjunction on January 12, 2020.

That conjunction is two days after a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer.  And that Lunar Eclipse is just two weeks after a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on Christmas Day 2019.

Time has been marching forward since Saturn went Direct on September 18, and deep transformation has been revving up its engines since Pluto went direct last week October 2.

That means that Saturn and Pluto now are going straight forward, without interruption, toward their date with destiny on January 12 2020.

You can easily see how much is already being shaken up in our world on the way to that conjunction.

Collective sanity is being eclipsed by a world that is falling apart at the seams, and yet pretending all is as it should be, and that the pendulum will swing back in the other direction before too long.  Sanity and decency will return and all will be normal again.

The old normal is forever gone. The pendulum is becoming obsolete and broken now.

We are starting up a New Chapter in a New Paradigm.

And with Pluto and Saturn starting their Direct route together toward their 2020 conjunction, we can concentrate on our own transformational journey.

This week begins with the 2nd quarter of the Moon’s phase, with the Moon in Capricorn on October 5.

Then on October 7, Mercury in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus.  It is wake up time, no more time for slumber, little time left for sitting on the fence of indecision.

Our main choice now is in who will lead you now? Is it your ego or your higher Self?

We need commitments now, no more wishy-washy.  Choosing the Higher Self seems more risky as the ego’s semblance of being in control feels more secure than the kind of surrender that the Soul requires.

Higher Self does not require figuring it out by straining our left brains.  Higher Self prefers being part of natural unfolding by following the “yellow brick road”, so to speak.

There is a trust and faith required in letting go and allowing natural Universal cycles and symbols to guide us.

And with a big turning point ahead of us next Eclipse Season this coming December and January, we need to experience maintenance of our inner hearts and souls.

On Tuesday October 8 this week, Venus goes into Scorpio, causing our relationships to get more real, to be expressing from a deeper soul passion.  If any of your relationships have been stagnant or forced to be merely pleasant, holding back truths, they will “get down” now into more intensity and depth.

Mars in Libra opposes Chiron in Aries on the 8th also.  This is another sign that needs to keep the peace are challenged by energies of power and force.

That same theme plays out at the Full Moon in Aries (Sun in Libra) on Sunday the 13th.  That Full Moon is at the same cardinal sign 20+degrees- this time in Aries.  Pluto changed directions at 20+ degrees of cardinal sign Capricorn last week.

If you have any planets in Aries, Libra, Cancer, or Capricorn, at between 17 and 23 degrees, your life is moving through a turning point of some kind around this Full Moon in Aries.

And Pluto is closely connected inside this Full Moon in Aries, as it is still at 20+ degrees of Capricorn, very closely square the 20+ degree Full Moon in Aries.

You are being pushed off the fence of indecision.  Time to choose. Resistance causes pain and suffering.

Higher Self or Ego Self? You are choosing your own destiny. This is not about killing the ego! It is about putting the ego in its place.

That place is as a subordinate to your Higher Self, which is connected to All.  You may not feel as much in control that way, but you will feel more aligned, lighter, free, and expressing your authentic Self.

Out in the mainstream ego controlled world, culture war ramps up with the impeachment process.  And watch out for Israel and the Middle East.  China and North Korea versus the USA will take a new turn soon also.

And you have to know that the Stock Market and Economy are in danger of a significant crash soon, very likely sometime this Autumn or Winter.

The Saturn/Pluto conjunction in January promises a destruction of old world ego dominance.

The primaries for Democrat candidate for President of the USA will be intensifying greatly, as we get closer to the first caucus in Iowa in February.

My beginning steps at predicting the Democrat’s candidate for President have begun. A quick look at the candidates showed me Warren, Mayor Pete, and Harris as having the charts most aligned for winning the nomination. I will continue to analyze, and hope to give you a final prediction in the next few weeks.

I also will examine more closely charts of countries and world leaders, so we can get a feel for what may happen around the globe in the next few months.

In the meantime keep feeding the knowing that all is divinely guided. We are in transition between Ages. December 2020 is a major turning point into the Age of Aquarius.  Synchronistically, the USA Presidential election is a mere month prior.

This week contains a very strong and important Full Moon in Aries with Pluto prominent. Trust the Process.

Till next week

Leo

Optimism and Pessimism and Astrology Forecast September 1-7

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , on August 31, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A Virgo New Moon this last Friday has pushed us forward with new start ups and beginnings.

The most likely kind of forward movement now is for fixing up, cleaning out, and creating a sense of order and grounded common sense in our lives.

This week there is a strong Virgo influence with the Sun, Mercury, Venus,  and Mars all hanging out together in orderly, “realistic”, perfectionistic,  humble and logical Virgo.

This week, however, there are energies emerging that often bring turmoil into the “close to the Earth”  expressions of Virgo.

That is because Jupiter in Sagittarius, where Jupiter has been all year, squares the Virgo planets, and brings with it uplifting, inspiration driven, expansive, adventurous energies.

You would think that any sign would love to experience such spirit rising.

But Virgo is quite arguably a “glass half empty” kind of sign, not trusting or finding it easy  to let in anything or anyone that is filled up with unbridled joy or “high flying” thoughts and emotions.

Sagittarius is very much a “glass half full” kind of sign.

When they are in conflicting relationship with each other, as they are now in square, each sign tends to go to extremes to get itself “heard”.

So in this state, Jupiter in Sagittarius tends to be overly excited, impulsive, jumping to conclusions, fantasy indulging, and high flying.

Virgo usually sees itself as realistic, when in actuality it can be very skeptical and pessimistic at times.

So a prevailing theme this week is an unpredictable roller coaster ride of positive and hopeful up-swing and negative and hopeless down-swing, up and down.

You can likely expect your aims to create calm simple order in your life to be confronted by excitable people or situations that bring “chaos”.

And conversely expect your aims to stay on the “high road” to be confronted by people or situations that throw a wet blanket on your soaring spirit.

This Virgo lunar cycle is meant to get us to work harder and to bring more simple order and practical sense into our lives.  Events that get us very excitable will challenge that agenda.

On Monday Labor Day in America, the Sun makes conjunction with Mars in Virgo.  Be careful of your own anger or the anger of others thrown at you.  And that anger might be accompanied by strict criticisms and judgmental opinions.

Do your best to not be defensive, but instead to take it in as constructive criticism that will help you to get better and better at what you do.

Watch the world out there to show us events, surrounding the Sun/Mars conjunction in Virgo, that tend to make us feel “half empty”.

So many have been feeling quite hopeless in recent times because of the state of our culture and world.

Yes our world is in bad shape right now in many ways, so we need to band together to help transform and heal it.

Our Earth and human family are coming up to a crossroads on the highway of transition between an Age of Pisces and a coming Age of Aquarius.

When we experience the old Paradigm with its fears and hatreds, we can feel so down and hopeless. And then we tune into the new Paradigm with its love, empathy, and magic, and we can then feel so filled with hope and joy.

That swing up and down is a natural rhythm for being in transition during Transformation and Healing cycles.

Expect that energetic to continue; yet we can learn to handle those swings better by finding an inner observer.

That observer knows the swings are natural and accepts this.  Yet is also knows that hanging onto the high or being crushed by the low does not serve us well.

The relationship between opposites can be intense now. Dark and Light both want attention. So do Yang and Yin. So do Male and Female.

All is being re-integrated and re-balanced.  We can trust the process and let go of trying so hard to keep control.

Here are some highlights for the month ahead:

There is a Full Moon in Pisces on Friday the 13th of September.  This is a time to connect with the Mysteries

On the 18th, Hand of Time Saturn goes Direct. This is a time to know- It is Time. Time marches on.

September 21, Jupiter squares Neptune to trigger the wand of magic coming alive

On September 23, there is the Autumn Equinox bringing equal balance between light and dark as the Sun moves into Libra.

On September 28 there is a New Moon in Libra, bringing more Beauty and Love into life.

The Trump world is not taking over our lives and souls. Why would we allow it?

The world he has brought with him is a world that has been leaving us for some time now.   It cannot come back for more than a “second” in the vast network of Time. That time is almost up.

Instead of complaining or letting fear take us over,  we can take more responsibility for the country and world we have all built together.

And we can take more responsibility for healing it and ourselves; and for transforming this world and ourselves with an abundance of Love and a dedication to Truth.

December 2019/January 2020 give us the next Eclipse Season. It will be especially powerful as Saturn conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn in connection with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer.

This promises a most powerful turning point in our collective human experience on Planet Earth.

Till next week

Leo

What Are We Waiting For and Astrology Forecast August 25-31

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The greatest  part of this coming week is a continuation of the previous week.  The Moon is still moving down through its darkening, waning half of the lunar cycle.

The Sun is still in a fix-it, mend-it, heal-it, perfect-it, maintain-it, clean it up, make it more orderly Virgo energetic. Venus and Mars have joined the Sun in Virgo, providing even more energy for developing physical purity and critical discernment.

That discernment can feel quite judgmental at times, and judging oneself can be especially hurtful.

A positive use of this Virgo energy is to help you to see the trees in the forest, and each branch and leaf of those trees.  Virgo can gently help make everything be more real; can tell you who or what may not be good for you; and can bum-out any overly romanticized illusion you may have conjured up.

And yes Virgo can be very good at bringing things “down to Earth”, more simple and ordered. It is the most gentle and flexible of the 3 Earth signs.

The 4th quarter of the lunar cycle ends at the New Moon in Virgo on Friday August 30 at 6:37 AM EDT.   It becomes a New Moon because the Moon catches up with the Sun at the same degree of the same sign. In this case it is almost 7 degrees of Virgo.

The slow come-down of the 4th quarter Moon shifts into a let’s get going and get things done New Moon in Virgo.

During the darkening skies, as the Moon finishes the last quarter of its cycle, it is a great time for meditation, intentions, prayers, and positive visualization.

Then when the first sliver of light shows a day or so after the actual time of the New Moon, the new beginnings come alive. Saturday night of August 31 is when that light should appear.

I know you see the grand scale of transformation and change that is brewing in our country and world. I have mentioned many times how the Military/Industrial Complex of the Empire is beginning to transform.

This takes place in the economy and the military/police segments of American society.

The economy showed big signs of trouble this last week with a very aggressive trade war with China breaking open. There is little doubt what we face ahead in the stock market and economy.

And the USA is making enemy of so many peoples. We are isolating from the rest of the world with our current focus on Nationalism. This is what happened just before World War II.  Germany, Japan, Italy and others became much more nationalistic.

On Wednesday August 28 Mars in Virgo makes trine with Uranus in Taurus. This energy should shake things up, but not out of control.  Stuck energies or patterns get some assistance in breaking away.

The next day on August 29, the Sun also trines Uranus, continuing the theme of breaking open what has been stuck or complacent.  And on that same day Mercury leaves Leo and enters Virgo, building up even more Team Virgo.

Late that night, on its way to a new moon the next day, the Moon also enters Virgo.

We are getting used to this new reality we are in.  But more importantly it has been feeling for some time now that we are waiting for something, and that we cannot make decisions or find direction until it happens.

Most of us know by now that the Trump world is real, not an illusion or bad dream.

Virgo will help us now to face up to what is really happening and figure out how to make things better.

Most of the really important work now is in our consciousness.  The parts of our consciousness that are a result of programming received by the culture and family, needs to be released.

Thinking for oneself is essential in the Age of Aquarius.  Diversity within Unity is a pillar concept of the new world. And diversity requires individualism.  And the sign Aquarius is quite arguably the most individualized of all.

Aquarius needs to know and accept that it is different, Often times that may get one to feel they are weird and will never fit in.

And that is the process of Aquarius:  honoring the differences while looking to join with others in unity.

Thinking for oneself often begins by speaking up to parents or other authority figures. There is a rebellion of sorts and a feeling of being different and not needing to be or think what others want you to think or be. The teen years are a usual time for getting more independent and feeling more separate from family and culture.

But at the same time teens are looking for a group or clique or club or team that one feels “at home” in.

And now many people feel lost.  Their old allegiances no longer work for them. They do not know where or how they fit in anymore.

I have been seeing so many families breaking apart over the current political and cultural battles.

Some people cannot understand anyone being for Trump, and are amazed when some family member has that allegiance.

Facebook battles have also intensified, with some really nasty comments made to one another.

People in each camp feel so distant from each other in their beliefs.

I have read in Civil War books how one brother fought with the North while another brother fought with the Confederacy.

It seems almost surreal how many opinions are similar to back then.

The red states, which are mainly in the South, fall in line for Trump and his values and policies.  The blue states, mainly up north and on the coasts, have values more aligned with Obama’s values and policies.

Many of those  red state people really hated Obama, and Trump fed their anger with his claims that Obama was not born in the USA and instead was a Muslim wanting to bring down the country.

And now blue state people hate Trump and want him gone as quickly as possible.

It is Civil War again. Remember that the North won the war, ended slavery and plantations, and tried to bring the country back together again.

But surprising to some, they never did truly come back together again.

Wholeness and connectedness is important for an individual, country, community, family, etc.

A breaking apart, however, is part of the process of transformation.  The old formation is not working anymore, is not healthy or growing and evolving.  This happens with relationships too.

Each member of the relationship is growing in a different direction from the other member. They then either go their separate ways, or else figure out how to come back together from their new states of being. They build a new Wholeness and connectedness, one that has evolved into a better and healthier way of being.

Our country and world are experiencing such a transformation.

And since this is about a changing of Ages, such a big cycle of transformation, after over two thousand years of being in the Age of Pisces; we are collectively changing at the very core of our beings in order to be aligned with this Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Simplicity, Humility, and Astrology Forecast for August 18-24.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week the planets combine in relatively mild ways.

In contrast, summer 2019 has been really intense, violent, with strong breezes of chaos swirling in.

For those not privy to the bigger picture, events in the world would strongly suggest coming attractions of Doom and Gloom.

For many the world events during summer 2019 have brought with them such feelings of Doom and Gloom: the Trump presidency and its seemingly destined trip through an impeachment investigation; serious stock market and economy downward plunges promising a big recession; rhetoric for war between India/Pakistan, Iran/USA, China/USA, and Russia/USA; many mass killings in the USA; culture war between the right and left looking like a potential Civil War on the way. In Portland Oregon today is a big confrontation between far right and far left groups.  Israel is on the verge of major escalation with Palestine now.

And though Trump will not admit it, the danger of conflict between North Korea and the USA has grown this summer with NK blasting out many new rocket launches.

And more than anything else, the world’s leaders show us more and more how they are immature, self serving, unfair, corrupt; and feeling they are privileged and entitled.

The Epstein story, which ended his life this past week, has shown us that too many celebrities, wealthy people, and influential people in our world are without true moral fiber or concern for the most innocent of our human family, the children.

How can one, at this time, justify keeping the old paradigm and age alive?

It is time, as the heavens show us, to let go of that old age and paradigm in our minds, hearts, and consciousness.

We, as a collective, are in decay, as was Rome during the early portion of the now passing Age of Pisces.

As we decay, we need to come back to the lofty the ideals of “we the people”, freedom of the individual, “all people are created equal”, self determination for peoples; and a belief in a Diversity that can be naturally formed into a family of Unity for all.

Love and Truth are there always for us to embrace and live by. if we so choose and commit to.

The old programming from the decaying old age, shows us we live in a dog-eat-dog world that forces us to care only for us and ours.

Sure that may look to be true at times, but it is only true because we have bought into it, made it our reality.

This passing summer has blasted into our faces the cold reality of what we have allowed, what we have enabled.

We must take responsibility for our world, and truly believe in “we the people”.

Yes the old economy is dying. Yes the old power structures in the world are crumbling. And yes we will know what to do as things unfold.

Let love reign in your heart; let truth, “the whole truth and nothing but the truth” be the leader in your consciousness.

World events will continue to pour into our world as we move beyond Summer Eclipse Season 2019.

We now know we must deal with reality and the serious issues we have been shown need to be resolved.

Impeachment, the Economy, the growing Civil War, guns and gun control, frequent mass murders, Climate Change, etc. will continue to wake us up to what we need to do to evolve into the Age of Aquarius.

This week, as previously stated, is relatively mild planetarily speaking.

Since the Full Moon in Aquarius last week, we are now in the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Leo New Moon on July 31, a new moon day that included Mercury going back Direct.

Last week we reached climax from that lunar cycle at the Full Moon in Aquarius.  Energies have been at their most intense surrounding the time of that Full Moon late on Thursday.

Now during the “comedown” we gather ourselves while doing some cleaning, clearing, and acceptance of current reality.

The move into Virgo energies will assist us in that process.

Mars leaves big hearted, often big ego Leo in order to enter the humble, efficient, reality facing energy of Virgo on Sunday August 18

Mars in Virgo can be very to the point direct, which can feel judgmental.  When healthy, it expresses in a way that is quite constructive and fostering of being a master in one’s endeavors  When more toxic and cynical, it expresses in ways that demean and humiliate others or more likely oneself.

You can use this Mars in Virgo to help you better discern what is wrong, what needs to be fixed, and how to fix it. What has happened this summer, and what can we do to make things better.

Mars in Virgo takes action to work and get things done.  Negative Mars in Virgo is obsessive and won’t let anxiety go.

Venus enters Virgo on the 21st. Venus in Virgo attracts people and situations in a real and grounded manner.   It prefers simplicity and being of service.  It is humble, gentle, and sometimes self effacing.

Then on August 23 the Sun begins its annual journey through Virgo.  That means it is time to go back to school; get more serious about work; fix what needs to be fixed; put everything in order; and simplify your life.

Venus conjuncts Mars in Virgo on Saturday the 24th, to show us that the yang and the yin, the male and the female, are in accordance with making a life simple, humble and gently real.

The 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle begins on Friday the 23rd as the Sun goes into Virgo that day.  That 4th quarter Moon is in Gemini, so the mind and nervous system may be in overdrive.

That means anxiety, mental obsession, and obsessiveness may seek an entry into your consciousness and mind for a few days. Keep a lid on it.  Great countermeasures are meditation and Nature and Sky watching.

The world is turning into crisis mode, but you can stay trusting the process and the big picture no matter what.  We are undoubtedly moving imminently into the Age of Aquarius.

The next few years are crisis years, years of intense transition from an old world to a new world.

Trump people wear MAGA hats expressing a desire to make America great again.

What is happening is an attempt by those people to make America what they believe it used to be.

You do know that cannot happen, don’t you?

The world of caucasian men running the world (not just this country) with the obedient women and children strapped to them in undying loyal support is in its death throes.

Minorities will be the majority in 20 years or so.  Women are getting empowered and nothing will stop that.  Globalism (bringing the world closer together) is inevitable.

Nationalism, any kind, will have a short life span.   Capitalism in its current unfair state is in the process of being transformed. More “socialism” will be added to the economic mix, no matter what.

Wars to further one’s aspirations for resources, wealth, and dominance will not last much longer.

The only concern I have is in not knowing how dark and ugly it will get during the transition.

Like a Mother giving birth, it is unknown what the process will be like on the way to the birth.  Some are easy births, some are unbelievably difficult.

We cannot control nature during its moments of crisis, like in birth and death.

But we can learn to have trust and faith in its wisdom and the higher meaning it always brings with it.

Yes, get ready for the ride to get much more bumpy soon.

But likely not this week so much.

Till next week,

Leo

Sparks Flying and Astrology Forecast August 11-17.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on August 10, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week starts out with a bang, as both Jupiter and Uranus change direction. A planet changing directions, either way (to direct or to retrograde), increases its energetic intensity for a few days surrounding the event.

On Sunday August 11, Jupiter goes from Retrograde to Direct, while Uranus goes from Direct to Retrograde.

Energetically,  Jupiter is uplifting, inspirational, big-picture, positive, motivating, expansive, optimistic.

Uranus in its purest form is a feeling of “breaking out” or “breaking through”, liberation,  rebelliousness, radical, revolutionary, individualistic, aware of the greater group or collective.

Both can also be very intuitive and impulsive, not usually checking in with caution or logic before launch.

Around and after the weekend, the “air” will be more clear; taking action will feel more natural; stating one’s truth will be easier and less tempered. Controls are being taken away.

I am sure you have noticed that people are more unhinged lately, and Uranus and Jupiter’s changes are assisting that process now.

Trump has always been unhinged, so it is kinda scary to envision what is will be like for him to lift off whatever or whomever still has some control of him.

USA relationships with China, Russia, Iran and also many of its allies have seriously been shredded during this current administration.

As Mars triggers planetary positions from the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo of 2017 this week, issues with North Korea and China should be in the spotlight.

Also references to Charlottesville in 2017 will be triggered by Mars in Leo, as white supremacy and culture war events are likely again.

The resulting chaos is upon us, which also includes the recent gyrations of the stock market, which  is less predictable now.

Though this breakdown of the Military/Economic Empire Complex may feel scary sometimes; at the same time rushes of new clean light containing energies are wanting to stream through.

More and more people are beginning to rise up to the challenge, and want to assist in transforming this country and world.

Do your best not to join in on the new American Civil War.  That does not mean you need to temper your passion for what you believe in, or to not have preference for a party or person you believe is best to lead our country and world.

But it does mean there is no good reason to demonize and make enemy of anyone or anything.

Yes we do seek to “defeat” the forces of the old paradigm and world.  “Nature”, the Universe, God/Goddess (whatever you believe in), is working its transformational magic all the time.

You will not witness that happening if you are caught up and swallowed up by the dramas that the media, and social media engage in. Everything is made into a contest, competition, battle, or sport.

And each political party is made into a combatant in a battle to the death.

Meanwhile our country and world are going under. Why do we not bring the best minds and hearts all over the world together to discuss the enormously important issues before us: climate change, nuclear weapons, and the sad and frightening fact that our world is in a state of separation from one another.

We have been programmed to believe that all and everyone is disconnected in a random physically and materially dominant world, one without heart and soul and deep connections.

So many are asleep as they sleepwalk through life, looking for the “leaders” to show them the way. This is the metaphor of zombies, just as the metaphor of vampires shows us there are entities (forces, energetics, frequencies) who will suck the life out of you if you do not stay strong,  self honoring and awake.

Having to be “good” and nice or guilty all the time is a disempowering paradigm that has been thrust on us by many religions, societies, and families. We are told we come into our life bad (original sin), but we can become good in our lifetime with Heaven after you are dead as the goal.

How about instead knowing you are a soul with a “rented” body living in a Universe filled with Love and Truth that can be accessed in your now life when you are aligned, in connection with All, and at the same  time true to individual Self.

The Age of Aquarius has open arms, and its “ruling” planet Uranus leads the way.

Uranus, discovered in 1781, coincides with French and American  revolutions that honor the individual as stewards of the world, not kings or queens, dictators, governments or corporations.

It is “we the people” and the world is waiting for us to take responsibility.  In connection with Spirit we are never alone and are empowered as we need to be. In connection with other citizens of our country and world collective, we are surrounded with friends and family.

Do not concentrate or live in fear about mass murderers or stock market crashes or any other horror stories.

We are here for the healing and resolutions, not to wring our hands in anxiety, panic, and despair.

Yes the planets let us know now that much needs to be released, let go of,  purged or even destroyed. And they let us know we need to have trust and faith that we are crossing a threshold into the wonders of the Age of Aquarius.

This week , at the beginning of the week we have sparks of life to awaken us and move us forward as Jupiter and Uranus change directions.  Important world events will follow this week.

Then on Thursday is the Full Moon in Aquarius at 8:29 AM EDT. Full Moon in Aquarius means that the Sun is in Leo directly opposite the Moon in Aquarius.

Sun, Venus, and Mars are all conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon. So the power of personality is likely stronger than community at this Full Moon in Aquarius.

Overall the Leo/Aquarius Full Moon seeks to combine the individual need to be seen and to creatively express itself, with the group need to do what is best for the community or group or society.

In the USA Congress is Aquarius and executive (president) branch of government is Leo.

If they can come together to accomplish for the American people that would be great. So far they have not been anywhere near on the same page.

The USA natal chart from July 4, 1776 has the Moon in Aquarius, fairly close to where this Full Moon is in Aquarius.

USA Moon in Aquarius reflects the American inner values of equality, freedom of the individual, freedom of speech, and a Diversity within Unity higher principle.

Can we reintegrate those values back into our minds and souls? Current issues with immigration demand we get back in touch with those values.

This week will likely be filled with energy and events.  Keep your feet on the ground and your head up toward the heavens. We humans are the link between our Earth home and our connection with the stars, planets, and mystery of the Universe.

Trees are our closest likeness, as they are rooted in the Earth as its branches reach up to the Heavens.

Till next week

Leo
