Getting Ready and Astrology Forecast June 23-29.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Gemini on June 3.

The 4th quarter begins on Tuesday the 25th with the Moon in Aries square the Sun in Cancer.

So even though we enter the usually winding down quarter of the lunar cycle, the Aries Moon is wanting us to take some kind of action or at least to begin to empower ourselves in some way.

The 4th quarter of a lunar cycle is also about releasing, gathering, and preparing for the turn into the new beginnings of a new lunar cycle at the new moon.

And since the New Moon will be one on steroids, because it is a New Moon Solar Eclipse, the getting ready time has more intensity and importance than the usual  4th quarter of the lunar cycle.

Before the 4th quarter begins, however, Venus makes some significant moves.

On the 23rd Venus opposes Jupiter, a day before it squares Neptune. So there is some processing around relationship issues that needs to be addressed before the 4th quarter gathering, cleaning, and releasing.

This relationship processing is partly about getting a bigger picture view of relationship and how it fits into your life now.  What are your priorities now?  How much emphasis does your relationship and/or family have for you in contrast to your sense of life purpose?

Life will intensify appreciably beginning next week, as we then experience a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on Tuesday July 2. And 5 days later Mercury goes Retrograde on July 7. It will stay Retrograde until July 31.

And the second eclipse will be experienced while Mercury is still Retrograde, as it is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn on July 16.

That Lunar Eclipse on July 16 will at 24+ degrees of Cancer/Capricorn. That means both Saturn (17 degrees Capricorn) and Pluto (22 degrees Capricorn) will be in the signature of the Lunar Eclipse.

That adds intensity and meaning to the eclipse, but also makes everything feel more real, substantive, and transformational.  Our ideas and desires to transform our world, which has been stirring for many years for many of us, now gets more real than ever.

It is time to get our hands dirty and contribute to this world in transitional crisis. Coming events will demand us to do this.

This Summer Eclipse Season, though powerful in itself, is just an appetizer for the main meal in January 2020 when Saturn and Pluto are exactly conjunct during another set of powerful eclipses.

The Cancer/Capricorn sign emphasis for both Eclipse Seasons, show us the need to balance the Father archetype (Capricorn) with the Mother archetype (Cancer).

Capricorn respects what you do, while Cancer respects who you are. Capricorn is more outer directed and Cancer more inner directed.

So we are getting ourselves ready to find a new balance between these differing societal values.

And in our culture here in the USA, there is a culture war going on between Cancerian Liberal values and Capricorn Conservative values.  These two different sides have little connection between them nowadays.

Of course in a healthy world they join in union like a yin/yang symbol. But now they are  largely at war in our society.

In general Women are getting more empowered and speaking their minds, and Men are learning to be more sensitive, empathic, and understanding.

As we as a culture are just learning to do these things, we are in many cases getting further apart from one another.

But we will join again in a more healthy and connected union (yin/yang symbol).

The real work is internal, where each of us needs to find both a healthy male and healthy female inside ourselves.

Carl Jung said that men had an inner woman (anima) and women had an inner man (animus).  The condition of a man’s anima can be seen in the women he attracts to himself; and the state of a woman’s animus is reflected by the men she attracts to herself. And of course this changes through the years, as one develops a more healthy and integrated gender balance.

And of course now in our world, the whole idea of gender identification is changing, making the process more complicated.

But the point is that the inner work is so important now around gender balancing.

Women seem be ahead of men in gender balancing as society puts out a greater stigma against men integrating their “feminine” side.

Men must pick up the slack now, and get over rigid ideas of what it is to be a man.

So with this Cancer/Capricorn emphasis now, we will be challenged to integrate male and female in new ways.

The war between men and women now, or between conservative and liberal, is ridiculous and self destructive to our human family. Time for us all to grow up.

And events in the world will challenge us to grow and evolve, as these events get more and more challenging

There was almost a war ignited between the USA and Iran this last week over a large tin can of a USA drone being struck down as it supposedly entered Iranian space.

Trump did stop the attack dogs from attacking, but that conflict is far from over.

Remember Trump is a Sun in Gemini, and as such the twins have very different ways of being.

Geminis often have a “good person” voice whispering in one ear, as a “bad person” voice whispers in the other ear.

So Trump gives word to attack and then changes his Gemini mind.

Next week when the eclipses begin, we shall see what happens then.

Next week we will look at the Solar Eclipse New Moon and how it may affect the candidates and their natal charts. Next week are the first debates for presidential candidates. We will also begin to analyze the charts and chances to be president for the main candidates in the race next week.

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season Begins and Astrology Forecast June 16-22.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A bugle sounds for us to wake up from hiding this week.  As the bugle sounds, the first strong winds of Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begin to blow in.

The first of 2 eclipses, however, does not arrive until July 2; nevertheless, the Full Moon in Sagittarius this week on Monday the 17th opens up the Eclipse Season. And Summer Solstice is also this week on Friday the 21st.

Summer Solstice on the 21st is at 11:54 AM EDT. This day is the day when light is at its greatest and dark is at its least.  But dark minutes start growing right after the Summer Solstice and light begins to retreat.

Summer Solstice is also the beginning of having the Sun in Cancer for the next 30 days. The Sun in Cancer, the sign of Mother nature, shows us a time when Nature is in full bloom at its most abundant.  Cancer is a sign of nurturance, like a Mother feeding a baby.

Cancer likes to be taken care of or to take care of others, and at its best loves unconditionally.  At its worst it lacks boundaries and can hover over those it loves, giving them little room to breathe- hence the word s-mother.

This is a good month to be with family, whatever family truly means to you.  Being supportive and being supported is in line with Cancer too.

The next 9 months or so will thrust us forward into new dimensions of Love and Truth, even as darker realities burst some bubbles of our illusions.

This Summer Eclipse Season 2019 will last into August, and it will bring with it the beginning of presidential debates in preparation  for Election Day in November 2020.

Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 will be a climactic time period, which will include the powerful and important Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12, 2020.  That conjunction will be right after and conjunct the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon In Cancer on January 10, 2020. (See webinar information below).

Right now, this week we awaken our spirits and souls with the Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius, which is only one day after an important Jupiter/Neptune square.  That square has Jupiter in Sagittarius (its favorite place to be) squaring Neptune in Pisces (its favorite place to be) on Sunday June 16.

And both Jupiter and Neptune are part of the signature of the Sagittarius Full Moon the next day on June 17.  Jupiter is widely conjunct the Moon, while Neptune in Pisces is square that Moon.

This is a lot of energy opening up. It may feel chaotic at times for some. Others may experience an opening into spiritual dimensions, with increased signs and synchronicities from the Universe.

The Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon is usually one that opens up the mind and stimulates a need to find resolution, meaning and understanding, even in the face of much information to sort out.

Lively conversation is usually opened up during this Sag Full Moon.  Jumping to conclusions is common during this lunation.  Enhanced intuition and rapid fire thinking are common at this full moon.

With Jupiter and Neptune also involved, some will get confused and/or out of usual mental balance.

If you can surrender your need to keep an agenda or fixed paradigm, you may open to new perceptions and judgments that will assist your growth.

And surrender is a good strategy for this week, a surrender to something greater and to a bigger picture of what is happening.

You may also this week get a good sense of what this Summer Eclipse Season is all about for you and for our world.  What issues are needing to be focused on?  What needs to be changed or transformed?  What needs to be released? What do you need to let in?

Eclipse Seasons always shake us out of status quo reality and thinking. They take us off our usual balance so we can be more vulnerable to growing and evolving. They bring a greater energetic intensity too.

Besides the Solar Eclipse on July 2, there is a Lunar Eclipse on July 16; and mixed in with it all is Mercury being Retrograde from July 2 through July 31.

Back to this week: We have Jupiter square Neptune on Sunday June 16 (though it will be felt most of the week); Mercury making aspects to Neptune, Jupiter, and Saturn- also on the 16th.

Neptune is slowing down now to go Retrograde on Friday the 21st- the same day as the Summer Solstice. When a planet slows down to change directions its energy is much stronger. Confusion, chaos, as well as deeper insight and psychic abilities are enhanced with a strong Neptune. The Inner Kingdom beckons.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius is on the 17th, merging with the aforementioned Neptune aspect of the 16th. It may be too easy for some to be overwhelmed with information and details now.

It may also be challenging for some to find truth within all the clashing information and energy shifts.

That search for truth is our reality most of the time now. Everyone (most especially news media) is pushing an agenda and few seem to be interested in what is real or true if it does not fit into the agenda.

On Wednesday the 19th the conjunction of Mercury and Mars opposes Pluto.  That is a very intense combination and very powerful.  There is more likelihood to be involved in a war of words this week in our personal life conversations. Anger is too easy to feel and express now- be careful.

Even more dangerously, a war of words out in the world is getting more likely now.  Even before this week, the USA and Iran have been thrust into near war.

The USA leadership is obviously setting us up for war with Iran, as it did similarly with Iraq and Libya. Remember Iraq being said to possess weapons of mass destruction?

Can “we the people” be that stupid again?  The USA and Western World made an agreement with Iran under the Obama administration, and Iran is said to have complied.

Trump unilaterally “tore up” the agreement and now through increasing sanctions is pushing Iran into extreme economic  difficulty.

We have made greater enemy of Russia and China also, with economic sanctions and tariffs on each of them.

Remember however, that all this Old World separation and enemy making is not our future. We are needing a deep purge of this old fecal matter from our collective unconscious.

The dark in our world is growing inside its walls of separation, while at the same time light is pushing through the cracks of those walls, wanting to inspire us to leave the darkened walls and to create a new world out in the fields of Nature.

That Nature so needs our loving embrace now, and we need its embrace too.  The technological world we are building must stop its movement away from having healthy bodies and a healthy Earth to live on.

Technology has a very important role in the Age of Aquarius, but without a healthy Earth and healthy human bodies and souls to cradle it, all will vanish.

These next 9 months are crucial for what will happen on Election Day and after.

Let’s get a good start on it all this week as Summer Eclipse Season 2019 commences, as Summer Solstice occurs too.

The “reality” of the mainstream culture is distorted and toxified now.   It is an old paradigm that we have been programmed into.

George Orwell was divinely inspired to write the book 1984.  Look around at our world now. So many have forgotten how to truly think for themselves, on both sides of thinking.  There is a conservative agenda’s mantra to follow and uniform to wear. And there is a liberal political correctness to follow and uniform to wear.

The New Age thrusts us outside the boxes, so we can think and feel for ourselves

Remember the movie Truman’s World with Jim Carrey?  He was programmed from birth to believe real life was what he was experiencing every day. But his “real life” was just a set for the TV program he was constantly the star of, 24 hours a day- every day.  His view of nature was in reality a made up television set.  On the edges of the set, however unbeknownst to him, curtains could be opened to view and enter true Nature and the Real World.

There is no Age of Aquarius until enough people have left the programmed set and seen the beauty and wonder beyond the walls.

Till next week

Rushing River of Change and Astrology Forecast June 9-15.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week on Sunday/Monday the Moon in Virgo makes a square with the Sun in Gemini.  This makes for a half Moon lit up in the Sky, beginning the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle.  That cycle began on June 3 at the New Moon in Gemini.

Of course this Gemini lunar cycle shows us the importance of communication, yet also shows us the importance of having an open mind that is filled more with questions than answers.

So in your personal life it is aligned now to open your mind up to more possibilities and ideas, instead of closed minded surety of your opinion and ways.

It is also fortuitous now to be present and to make a strong effort to be present in relationships as a true listener.

As a couples’s counselor, I sometimes witness people who believe that if their intentions are good they have done no wrong in what they say or do to others.

Not true! It is most important to truly be aware of how a person will receive what you are communicating. That is one reason that it is important to ask questions so you know where the other person stands in their emotions and thoughts.

Most people in relationship get really concentrated in defending their position and in “winning” the argument.

Really healthy relationships have each person in the relationship having empathy for what the other person believes or feels.  This does not mean sacrificing your needs or opinions to keep the other person happy.

You can be solid in being true to yourself, while at the same time having a true understanding of the other person, their needs and desires.

When each person honors their own self and sovereignty , they are in a potentially healthy position to honor and respect the other person too.  Win/Win is the goal which can be attained most always in most situations.

As the second quarter Moon in Virgo passes through late this weekend, there is the potential for nervous energy, anxiety, and obsessive thinking.   Both Virgo and Gemini are ruled by the planet Mercury.  Mercury operates in the brain/mind and through the nervous system and spine.

Yes it is a prime time for analyzing, logical thought, and information gathering and expressing.   But I am pretty sure you do not want to be in mental overload or obsessive thought, pushing for answers and solutions.

Sunday/Monday, while the Moon is in Virgo, there is an aspect that will offset the monkey mind.

Neptune in Pisces will be in a challenging square to that Sun in Gemini and Moon in Virgo.  Neptune, mythic god of the ocean, does not do well with left brain needs to mentally “figure it out”.

Instead it seeks and expresses the more flowing energies of music, metaphor, art, meditation and connection with everyone and everything. It is best to surrender to the “Kingdom Within” when Neptune is strong.

So it is best now, with the left brain and right brain in battle with one another, to allow the process to unfold without much stress from pushing an agenda, or needing to be right.

Late in the week Mars makes several aspects that should give us a preview of coming attractions.  Mars in Cancer this week trines Neptune, opposes Saturn and gets closer (next week) to an opposition to Pluto.

And all this is connected to where Saturn and Pluto will be for their January 2020 conjunction with one another as another Eclipse Season rolls in.

That is an important time period for our human family, and perhaps some clues from the Universe will soon show us what is coming to our personal and collective lives. Look for the symbols and their messages and synchronicities.  What wants to die and what needs to be born?

From this Summer Eclipse Season that begins at the Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 17, to the Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020; there will be important events, breakthroughs, liberations, revelations and enlightenments.  There will also be disillusions, heartaches, and life challenges.

As a human family we are moving back to, and forward to the purity of the Universe with its pillars of Love and Truth. When each of us is mainly connected to Love and Truth, all else will eventually fall into place.

Look at our world now-  false news is everywhere. It can be really difficult to sift through all the information and opinion to find truth.

And look at the status of love shown out in the world.  Relationships are dominated by struggles for power and control, and negotiating for getting what one wants.  Love brings grace with it and desires for win/win.  Without sufficient Love, we bargain for what we want all the time, and pretty consistently look for wins at the expense of the losers.

This is fine in sports or other contests, but is it right, healthy and satisfying for the rest of our lives too?

Saturn/Pluto is close now to conjunction (only 3 degrees apart) and will stay close during this approaching Summer 2019 Eclipse Season.

In January 2020 they will be exactly conjunct at 22+ degrees of Capricorn- one day after the Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 20 degrees Capricorn/Cancer- so close to Saturn/Pluto. And Uranus changes direction to Direct then also.

All that is why we are presenting a class and talk on Saturn/Pluto, which will include the eclipses. Class is on Saturday June 22 at noon and lasting till 4:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time. We will be deeply discussing world affairs, the Presidential race and potential impeachment, and most importantly the changes of  consciousness and lifestyles needed to adapt to the Age of Aquarius. In that process we will look at individual charts also to find where the Eclipses and Saturn/Pluto reside in your life and chart.

How might that affect your life? We still have some openings in the class. Write me at soulus@aol.com for more info and to sign up to attend.

This year’s Summer Eclipse Season rapidly approaches now. The Full Moon on the 17th brings the first strong winds of change. The 21st brings in Summer Solstice with a strong Neptune changing directions. Then July 2 brings us the first eclipse: A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer that also shows us Saturn and Pluto closing in on one another.

Keep an eye out for world events that will open the portals for new light pouring through for our consciousness and lives.

Be open to change in your own life too.  This time period resembles the ’60s and ’70s, when change was overwhelming at times. But it felt so good to have the old status-quo corruptions, injustices, and power abuses challenged and  transformed.

And now we experience the next great wave of transformation. Let go of the shore and allow the river of evolutionary change take you, and bring you to a world of personal purpose and meaning.

Till next week,

Leo

Truth and Lies and Astrology forecast June 2-8

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

There is a New Moon in Gemini on Monday June 3 at 6:02 AM EDT.  On June 2 we are under a dark Moon, and that will also be true on the day of that New Moon in Gemini on the 3rd.

In fact new moons, signifying new beginnings, do not really start until we can see a sliver of lunar light.  That will be no later than the evening of June 4.

During dark moons, it is usually a prime time to meditate with affirmations and/or visualizations, to make strong intention of whatever is important to you at the time.

This New Moon in Gemini shows us a good time for giving, attending, creating, and planning for classes, webinars, workshops etc.  It is also a good time for reading and studies.

Gemini is “ruled” by Mercury, called the messenger of the gods; so Gemini time periods are about working with issues of communication.  Gemini loves words, so for most Gemini’s writing and talking are very important to them.

Gemini is an air sign, and as such it is in the head a lot , concentrating  on thinking and figuring out.  Air signs are also often social butterflies, seeking light and care free social interactions.  Gemini is the air sign most like that butterfly who goes from flower to flower, more so than the other two air signs Libra and Aquarius.

And Gemini needs many interests, and being that way motivates many of them to go from one thing to another,  even one thought to another, or one person to another.

When they are in their normal rhythm they are light and airy, effortlessly delivering information to others and bringing in new information too.  They are fact based and detail oriented.

The challenge for many Gemini’s is to slow down or stop the “monkey mind”, especially during meditation. It can get overwhelmed with information being collected in its mind.

It loves a good mental challenge, and curiosity is one of its motivations for learning new things. It is the questioner, and it is in its default nature to question most everything.  Sometimes that means it is challenging someone’s information or opinion, but sometimes it is just geared to ask questions for no deeper reason.

So now as we move through the Gemini New Moon this week, it is a good time to think about classes, learnings, friendships, starting something intellectually stimulating, reading a new book, or getting up the courage to speak up and communicate what is on your mind. Gemini does not usually like emotional confrontations, however.

Not long after  this New Moon in Gemini, Congress will question AG Barr and/or special prosecutor Mueller, and others in preparation for impeachment.

The Military/Industrial Complex foundation is showing immense cracks, ready at any time to begin to crumble.

The stock market went way down last week, and war cries against Iran got much stronger.  The USA trade war with China and Mexico heated up last week, as did their war of words with China on other subjects. And North Korea is back up in the Empire’s consciousness as it shows increasing animosity for the USA administration.

I say all this to show you that over the next 9 months or so, Pandora’s Box will break open with some major world event(s), ones that will change the world.

Intensity increases during an Eclipse Season,  and this one will have its first breezes of change after this New Moon in Gemini.

The first actual eclipse will be on July 2,  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer at 10+ degrees.  The 2nd eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn at 24+ degrees.

But the most powerful shake-up will occur late Autumn 2019, early  Winter 2020.  It is a huge turning point for the world. That Eclipse Season will open The Box if not yet opened.

Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn will make its only exact conjunction in January 2020, the day after a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon as Uranus goes direct that day also.  (Webinar I am giving on June 22 will talk about all that, the powerful changes in the world as a result, and a look at each participant’s chart to see how they may each be affected in their own personal life.  Noon-4:30 $120.) Write me at soulus@aol.com to sign up.

There is no way anymore that we can put bandaids on the big issues and conflicts.  They are all coming to a head, so to speak.  There are so many enlightening waves of energy filled with hope and the magic of Universal signs and synchronicities under the rock solid box of an old world’s status quo. That box is breaking open soon and dark and light will all be released together for each of us to sort through in our consciousness.  The Age of Aquarius is a creation made from it all.

This week with the New Moon in Gemini, new information will begin to make itself known.   Facts greater than all the lies and fabrications will be available to those aligned and looking for truth.

Neptune is square to the New Moon in Gemini, so there will some confusion and distortions to work through.  If you can let go and surrender your left brain need to obsessively get to the logical truth, what you need to know will unfold itself and present itself when you are ready to receive.

Each media source operates more from an agenda than from a desire for the facts and truth.   Julian Assange represents someone who has worked to get the truth of what our governments and authorities hide from “we the people”.

These “authorities” are trying to silence him or put him away. He now is extremely sick and maybe even dying. He represents freedom of the press and its duty to deliver us truth beyond the programming. Now each of us must be responsible to find these truths for ourselves.

Look closely and deeply this month for what is true and what is not, and do not let your political persuasion influence you.  This Gemini lunar cycle is mainly about the facts and communication of them. Next month the Eclipses shake things up and out of same-old, same-old.

Till next week

Lighter and Darker and Astrology Forecast May 19-25.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As the Full Moon in Scorpio leaves our awareness after the weekend of May 18-19, we get ready to come down another notch into what is real in our lives.

The last half of the current lunar cycle begins this week as we view a Moon getting darker by the minute.  At the same time as the lunar cycle darkens, the solar cycle gives us in the Northern Hemisphere of Earth more light by the minute.

The Moon darkens until June 3, as the New Moon in Gemini that day begins the process of the Moon growing once again with more light every night.

At the same time, the Sun brings more light every day until the Summer Solstice on June 21, when the Sun stops at its highest place in the sky to shine the most light of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Symbolically, the Sun represents the conscious intent for humans to shine, create, fully express, and succeed with utmost confidence.

Symbolically the Moon represents an inner, more instinctual intent to give and receive comfort and nurturance, to protect and express inner values of care and empathy.

So this week our inner and outer worlds are moving in vastly different directions.  Our collective conscious desire is to move with “glass half full” intent to get better and better in our relationship with the world.

Our collective soul/feeling desire is to feel what is natural for us to feel, even if that means sadness, grief,  or even feeling sorry for ourselves at times.

In the “world out there” there are many challenges.  The USA is digging in against its so-called enemies: Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, China, and Russia.   The USA has enacted or is a part of sanctions on all those countries. The USA Natal Mars in Gemini is triggered in May and June by Jupiter being directly opposite in Sagittarius.

No matter what is stated as motivation against these countries, the real reason for much of the conflicts is needs for more power and control, domination, and in some cases control over natural resources like oil and natural gas.

When Trump chose Bolton and Pompeo as integral leaders in his administration, most people knew that meant war was likely to come, as both those men are known to be military hawks hankering for a fight.

We are at a big turning point in our country and world now.  The next 9 months of so will  greatly determine the path we take over the next several years in regards to economy and war.

Especially important will be the next two Eclipse Seasons- in the Summer of 2019 and the Winter of 2019/20.

The Saturn/Pluto powerful configuration is getting closer and closer now, with their only exact conjunction being in January of 2020, which is the climax of their planetary relationship at this time.  Of course Eclipses will also be happening in January 2020, as well as July 2019.

This all will have great effect on our personal lives too. I am now scheduling a webinar for Saturday June 22 from noon-4:30 PM EDT.  We will look at Saturn/Pluto, its history and effect on our human condition then and now. And I will give interpretation for each webinar participant concerning the effect of Saturn/Pluto in their own charts and lives. In this webinar we also take a peek at the next presidential election in November 2020, and an outlook on the economy and the condition of our lives going forward: fee $120 with 1 scholarship offered for those most in need. Write me at soulus@aol.com for more info and to sign up.

Also I will begin a Podcast/Radio show series on Monday June 3 at the Gemini New Moon. Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begins at that new moon, though the first eclipse will still be a month away. 

Yes we now enter a most important time here on Earth, as the condition of consciousness for each of us is most important for the direction, condition, and quality of our entrance into The Age of Aquarius.

Yes this week we have moved into the “downhill” movement of the waning half of the lunar cycle begun on May 4 at the Taurus New Moon.

That next lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Gemini on June 3. That is when Sun and Moon are conjunct at 12+ degrees of Gemini.

This week the Sun goes into Gemini on Tuesday May 21.  As we stated, the Moon will join the Sun in Gemini creating a New Moon in Gemini on June 3.

This week when the Sun leaves Taurus and enters Gemini, our intentions begin to be more mental and social and less physical and solitary.

Gemini stirs the mind and nervous system into more activity.  Needs to communicate get stronger, which for many means more talking.   But writing can also be a means to communicate now. People tend to both take classes and create classes during Gemini time.

Gemini rhythm is “information in- information out”- just the facts- no opinions, judgments or editorializing.   That is when Gemini is purely Gemini.

Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, the “messenger of the gods”, and it works often by showing signs and symbols and synchronicites that the Universe sends so people can see what direction to move toward and get clearer information.

The mind can go really fast in Gemini and Gemini seeks much mental stimulation and varied interests.  With not enough mental stimulation it can be bored; with too much it can be overwhelmed.

Gemini is the Twins, and as such it has two distinctly different personalities. Sometimes that may feel like the good angel and bad angel, or like Jekyll and Hyde.  But usually it is not that drastically polarized.  But two distinctly different selves do exist in some form for them.

Mars sextiles Uranus in Taurus on May 22, and that may cause some mostly minor shake-up of same-old, same-old.

In personal lives, I know most of you have been experiencing much change, and/or you can feel much change under the surface and coming soon.

The Old World has one more huge gasp in trying to bring back the past and its old Paradigm (Make America Ghastly Again).

The great hope is that it does not cause too much harm and pain during that time.

Our challenge is to not be sucked up into the black hole vortex it creates.  If we do not allow ourselves to be devoured by too much fear or hatred, we will be fine.

Keep focused on how we are entering the Age of Aquarius.  Keep meditating and getting yourself healthier and healthier. Keep remembering that Love and Truth run our Universe, and be that Love and Truth as best you can.

Till next week,

Leo

Wesak Full Scorpio Moon and Astrology Forecast May 12-18.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 11, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is such a time of uncertainty now.  It is difficult for many to feel OK inside, as stress tries to creep in and take over.

If you are paying attention, you can see how many issues out in the world are being taken “to the edge”:  Israel/Gaza; Israel/Iran; North Korea again; Venezuela; trade wars with China and the economy;  Syria/Israel.

The current US presidential administration feels very chaotic and unpredictable, but what is much worse is that it answers to no one, certainly not the people.  Congress and the executive branch of the USA are at war with one another.  Impeachment is a real possibility.

So called liberal and conservative USA cultures are at war with one another, not truly recognizing that both are American and world citizens of the same human family.  These splits into enemy camps takes us into very potentially disastrous situations.

When you look at TV shows and movies, most are about disasters and horror and are very dark and filled with gore and death.  Even the wildly popular Game of Thrones has so much death and destruction and darkness in it.

There is no way a culture that sees and acts out so much separation and enmity between peoples based on religion, race, nationality, sexual orientation, etc. can last long. And with nuclear weapons so available now, as well as other weapons of mass destruction, we are headed for disaster if nothing changes soon.

And can you believe how many school shootings there are now?  The old world is certainly in decay, as was Rome around the time of Christ.   Ages changed from Age of Aries to Age of Pisces around that time of the Roman Empire decay.

And now we are again in crisis and decay, as Ages shift from the Pisces Age to the Age of Aquarius.

Yes most people recognize that Climate Change is real and must be reversed soon if we are to survive as a human family. But on a deeper level the real problem is about our beliefs, our stories, our priorities, our values, our paradigm for living as humans on Planet Earth and in the Universe.

The old ways and paradigm must come to an end, and for so many people there is nothing they can imagine to replace it.  For them the old world must be brought back somehow.  Hence MAGA.

Going back to the ’50s in America, so much seemed so innocent, until you looked under the rug to find abuse of African Americans, LGBTQ peoples, women, and anyone else who did not fit into that paradigm.

The Old America is run now by billionaires, mega corporations, and neocons who bully other countries and push for war against countries that have many rich resources and relatively weak militaries.

And neo-liberals have now also formed and they also want regime change of these other countries by force.  America was not invited into Syria or Venezuela, nor was it invited into Iraq or Libya, two other countries we attacked, destabilized, and destroyed.

Civilian populace was innocent, yet so many were killed by USA and western nation bombings.

And remember none of those countries attacked the USA nor threatened to do so.

We need our energies focused now not on what happened before, or on these atrocities, but instead on how we can turn things around toward Love and Truth for a new age.

People all too often now seem to care more about material needs than soul needs and heart and soul connections.

We cannot continue, as so many are doing, to just go about our lives like robots.  We have given so much of our attention to our phones and devices, to our TV and movies.  We are certainly not as connected to our hearts and to one another now.

Game of Thrones has its dark and long Winter Time and its zombie-like inhabitants who just keep coming to bring on death for others.

Metaphorically speaking we are turning into the walking dead.  We go through the motions of being vital and alive, but so many and so often we are just walking dead, unconsciously moving toward our destruction.

But it is not hopeless. We can still turn things around by cleaning out the old paradigm and the traumas we have experienced from it.

So many are now open to the Connections, to all the dots in the Universe being connected.  As we learn to stay longer and longer in the connections, we experience many synchronicities and are shown signs and symbols that show us our way.

More and more we see all in a meaningful light, everything happening for a reason.  Love grows stronger and stronger in our hearts and souls and bodies; Truth gets stronger and stronger in our minds, souls and bodies.

Fear and ego need to take a back seat in the drive down through our Soul Path.  Spirit brings us more into light.   And overall we move on our path toward more integration, as we accept our dark and light, male and female, yang and yin opposites held in union not in war with one another.

These unions indelibly show that opposites can be joined together as ONE.

This is within the new paradigm that shows us unity of opposites and becomes Diversity Within Unity, the calling card of the Age of Aquarius.

Would it not be great when Conservative and Progressive are understood as opposites that can form a relationship with one another. It is a relationship that honors the values and integrity of each, while also recognizing what unites them.   Love of the country, love of the human community, love of the Earth and Sky realms are what will take us forward together.

But truth is also important, so recognizing the  grave challenges that are moving into our world now is important too.

This week we are in the 2nd quarter of the lunar cycle, and waxing toward a Scorpio Full Moon on Saturday the 18th.

The solid calm of the Taurus Sun will be challenged by the intensely primal passions of a Scorpio Moon.

So be awake to the shifting of energies on Thursday the 16th when the Moon moves out of pleasant Libra and into intensified Scorpio, getting us ready for the Full Moon in Scorpio.

The Full Moon in Scorpio is on Saturday May 18 at 5:11 PM EDT.  Venus in Taurus is conjunct Uranus in Taurus also that day, so relationships will be in the spotlight.  Important now to balance stable and secure needs with feelings of change and transformation.

This Scorpio Full Moon is an annual affair that is also called the Wesak Full Moon.  It is said that Buddha was born at a Wesak Full Moon. Buddhists also believe that Buddha was enlightened and died on that same Full Moon in other years

The Wesak Full Moon is considered by many to be the most powerful of the year.  Meditate on that Full Moon and see what you experience.

On Wednesday May 15, just a few days before the Wesak Full Moon, Venus goes into Taurus and Mars into Cancer.

There are desires that day to find comfort and care, home and safety. Allow yourself that indulgence so you can afterwards find more energy and focus for living.

Summer Eclipse Season is about a month away from the first winds of change to be felt.

See you next week

It is Time and Astrology Forecast May 5-11

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 4, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The weekend of May 4-5 brings a mixed bag of energy shifts.

The New Moon in Taurus is at 6:45 PM EDT. Saturday May 4.  An important configuration between Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto is exact on May 5.

Taurus is fixed earth, and as such requires situations to feel solid, comfortable, and secure.  Physical resources like homes, land, money, assets, and a bull (a symbol of the sign Taurus) stock market fit the bill for Taurus.

Taurus also makes manifest what was before just a motivation or desire.

So whatever you have been motivated to do, especially since around the New Moon in Aries on on April 5, you can now attempt to make real.

Mars opposes Jupiter on May 5, and while they do that, they are making aspects to Pluto in Capricorn.

This plays out with Jupiter at 23+ degrees of Sagittarius, Mars at 23+ degrees of Gemini, and Pluto at 23+ of Capricorn.  Mars/jupiter form the most important opposition to one another, as Mars/Pluto form a quincunx (150 degree aspect), while Jupiter/Pluto form a semi-sextile (30 degree aspect).

This is a very volatile combination of planetary energies, and impulsive actions can result from this configuration.  It can be good for being spontaneous, but what is the line between spontaneous and impulsive?

The United States natal Mars is at 21+ degrees of Gemini, and Donald Trump’s Sun is at 22+ degrees of Gemini, and his natal Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius.

As I write this blog, I see North Korea today just tested some weapons, which was apparently against previous agreements; Gaza and Israel just began a new round of violence with one another; and the USA is talking about military action being “on the table” as an option against Venezuela.

So there are multiple dangers for impulsiveness in those issues.

At the least, we are getting clear warning signals from the Universe about dangerous possibilities facing our human family during its transition between an old and new era of our human experience here on Earth.

We, however, need our concentration on our own expansion of consciousness, and the transformation of our beliefs and lives aligned with our best values and with the values of the Age of Aquarius.

The Mars/Jupiter opposition, along with the New Moon in Taurus, can assist us to manifest what we have put off or were not previously ready for.

The Taurus New Moon gives us the desire and ability to start projects that will help us to make real what was previously only a desire or idea.

And the Mars/Jupiter/Pluto formation gives us inspiration, desires to act and expand, and the ability to move through the death and rebirth cycle of transformation.

It is very important, however, to not be impulsive, and to be able to distinguish between spontaneous and impulsive. Spontaneous suggests living in the moment and naturally responding to what is presented to us. Impulsive suggests doing something disconnected from natural alignments and interactions.

Jupiter stays relatively close to opposing the USA natal Mars for most of the next 7 months, so these military adventures will continue to be possible.  Potential breakthroughs from old military aggression patterns are also possible with this planetary movement.

Events, personally and in outer world, may come suddenly the next few days of May 4- May 10. Venus makes exact aspect to Pluto and Jupiter on Thursday the 9th, triggering the formation from this weekend.

And since Venus also squares Saturn on Tuesday May 7, there are relationship issues to go through also.  This can mean relationship challenges, but also new insights and breakthroughs in relationship possible too.

On Monday May 6 Mercury leaves Aries for Taurus, where it will stay until May 21.

Mercury in Taurus is more methodical in one’s thinking than is Mercury in Aries, who is more shoot from the hip. They will both stubbornly stick to their opinion, but Mercury in Aries is more bold and challenging than is Mercury in Taurus, which is more cautious.

Mercury in Taurus thinks things through more, and is more practical.

On May 8, however, Uranus joins Mercury in conjunction in Taurus, so minds may be ready to leave caution to the wind, as one may be awakened to a new way to look at something.

We are now less than 2 months away from Summer Eclipse Season 2019; and we are less than 8 months away from the very important and powerful Eclipse Season of Winter 2020.

So much is wanting to change in the world now, and in our personal lives. Sometimes now it is so difficult to make definite plans or to choose definite direction, as life seems so much up in the air, so to speak, waiting for something to happen.

I feel pretty sure that said event or events will happen in 2019/2020, a time of much turmoil.  Chaos will be in conflict with Order, both vying for dominance.

As new ways of being on this Earth open up more and more, attempts to dominate and control will also get stronger and stronger.

This is the usual battle between progressive and conservative, yet I have never seen the divide so wide. I have never seen each side so clearly divorced from the other side, and so passionately emotional and hateful.

Communists or socialists versus conservatives or fascists was an important pattern in the 20th century, leading in large degree to the world wars and also cold war between USA and the Soviet Union.

Now that is forming again as ultra right nationalists are against a new breed of progressive socialists or globalists. And there is little thread of connection between these oppositions now.

The balance sought is like the yin-yang symbol of opposites held in union with one another.

Yet when big change or leaps of progress or evolution are coming in fast, as they are now, the force of conservative demands for law and order tend to strengthen also.

And through it all, we know we are moving fast now toward alignment with the Age of Aquarius and its new consciousness and paradigm.

The ultra conservative viewpoint wants to dominate and control this movement, and stop it from happening.

A healthy amount of conservatism can slow things down enough to make a more graceful movement forward. The world is not capable of that now, but each of us hopefully is.

Nothing can stop the progress now, but the hatred toward those “on the other side” makes this process more ugly and dangerous.

Some ultra conservative white nationalists who show such hatred toward those who are different make conservative look bad, but all conservatives are not that way.

Ultra left wing liberals who believe that anything goes without any rules or moral values make liberal look bad, but most liberals are not that way.

Yes we are moving into even greater and more powerful transformational change now, and IT IS TIME.

Till next week,

Leo
