Co-Creation and Astrology Forecast December 9-15

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now facing the first winds of change from the new Eclipse Season. The first actual eclipse this Eclipse Season is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on January 5, 2019.

Since Eclipse Season began last week at the Sagittarius New Moon, a few important world developments have intensely unfolded:

1)  The stock market is barreling downward rapidly, more significantly than many people understand

2) Mueller’s investigation has revealed information that strongly suggests Donald Trump’s presidency is in a very precarious position now.

3) Paris is experiencing  well attended rallies from its people that have gotten extremely intense in its battles with the police. These rallies were against the proposed increased gas taxes, but even after significant compromise from the government, the rallies have continued.

We can expect these issues to intensify in January, as others will capture much attention as well.  Israel is hot and close to major battles with Hamas and Hezbollah.  Russia is fanning flames of battle with Ukraine. The power of the Feminine is growing more and more every day in contrast to the old world’s paradigm and privileges.

All this shows us more evidence of a USA and Western world in the beginning stages of deep change and transformation on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

We can now see the light of that New Age beginning to shine through the darkness of these aforementioned troubles.

People are beginning to build up the muscles of “power to the people”; an unfair economic system is beginning to crumble to an eventual transformation into something more equitable; corruption of the old world ways is being challenged; and the Diversity Within Unity structure of a new Age of Aquarius world is beginning to show itself.

But I am sure you can see how this process of transformation will temporarily get darker and more intense soon.

That first eclipse on January 5 is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn 15+ degrees.  Pluto and Saturn will both be conjunct that Solar Eclipse.  That strongly suggests this Eclipse represents a big turning point in time concerning structures and institutions, old rules and regulations, responsibilities and outer world material issues.

There is a potentially destructive piece to the energy of this planetary event.  That is so because both Saturn and Pluto conjunct that Solar Eclipse.

In personal lives, there is a need around this Solar Eclipse to question your status quo; to look more closely at the rules you have been answering to; to be more in touch with your ambitions and what you want to accomplish in life.

There is a weighing of whether to keep old ways or instead to purge those old ways from your life and consciousness.

This is merely the beginning of added attention to the issues of Capricorn.  Already both Saturn and Pluto are in Capricorn for an extended stay. Then in 2020 Jupiter joins up with them as they do a threesome of conjunctions with one another.

That year brings us to both Jupiter and Saturn exactly conjunct the USA natal Pluto in its second house.  Pluto will conjunct itself (a Pluto Return) 2021-2025. 

This will be the first Pluto Return for the relatively young country of America.

With Jupiter and Saturn and Pluto all making conjunction with the USA natal Pluto over the next few years, we can expect massive change in the USA power structure of its Military/Industrial Complex.

That means the Economy and Military will be big-time transforming right before our eyes.  And all this synchronizes well with the important Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0+ degrees of Aquarius on the Winter Solstice December 21 date in 2020.

This symbolizes a portal opening into the Age of Aquarius. 

We do not want to view it as people did with Y2K or even more so with the end of the Mayan Calendar (even though amazingly that December 21 day is the same day predicted for 2012 as the ending of the Mayan Calendar).

We do not expect anywhere near a perfectly Aquarian World to magically appear that day.  Nevertheless there will be some obvious Aquarian Age symbols to be seen then, even as we will continue to view more intense struggling in transition between the ages.

It is best to see that time period as a “turning the corner” into the New Age, never to go back (so to speak).

It is no mere coincidence that there will be an important Presidential Election date in November 2020, preceding the Jupiter/Saturn Conjunction in Aquarius in December 2020.

Between now and then there will be many more birth pains and contractions, as we let an old age die as a new one is being born.

There are many similarities now with the stock market crash of 1929 and its subsequent economic Depression, compared to what is brewing now as Trump/Hoover preside in America.

And the similarities between Nixon/Watergate in the 70s,  with Trump/Russiagate now are even more startling.

And overall the similarities between the ’60s/70s revolution and what has been happening over the last few years now is also rather obvious.

Many full circles are playing out and Transformation is alive and well.

Later this week we enter the 2nd quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 7. That second quarter begins on Saturday December 15- in Pisces.

So we continue moving onward and upward toward climax on December 22 at the Full Moon in Cancer just a day after Winter Solstice 2018.

It is a great time now for positive intentions, prayers, and positive visualizations. There is more chance of actualizing what is visualized during a Sagittarius lunar cycle, especially this year with Jupiter also in Sagittarius.

Co-creation with the Universe may be especially productive now.

Mercury moves into Sagittarius this Wednesday the 12th, adding an even more conducive energy for positive visualization and affirmation.

Remember however that alignment with the Universe is essential when using positive visualization, as the relationship between you and the Universe is what creates the magic.

There is one more significant planetary movement this week.

At the beginning of the week, on Sunday December 9, Chiron shifts from Retrograde to Direct- at 28 degrees of Pisces.  

Chiron is a bridge between realities.  As such it is a significant bridge between the divine and human- between Higher Self and Ego Self.

It sits in the heavens between Saturn and Uranus, between the more traditional gods closest to Earth, and those of the more distant heavens, who were not known about until after 1781.

Saturn is representative of an Old Testament God of punishment for transgressions of not abiding by the rules (like the 10 commandments).

Uranus is representative of an awakening and liberation from the chains of old conditioning.

In between Saturn and Uranus is where Chiron always resides in the heavens.

In 1977 when it was discovered, Close Encounters of a 3rd kind and Star Wars were both showing for the first time in theaters.

The heavens were closer than ever before in our collective human consciousness.

Now as Chiron goes back Direct and soon into new day Aries, our “planet” of building bridges connects our ego self to the divine realms.

What better time to make positive visualizations that are in co-creation with the Universe?

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season, Mercury going Direct, and Astrology Forecast December 2-8

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 1, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting energy tides this week, as there is a New Moon in Sagittarius and Mercury going back Direct toward the end of the week.

This coming Thursday December 6 shows us Mercury going back Direct.  Then on Friday December 7 at 2:20 AM EST there is a New Moon in Sagittarius.

Even though our days are getting darker till Winter Solstice on the 21st of December, we will nevertheless symbolically feel and see more “light” as free spirited fiery Sagittarius is where the New Moon will reside.

And the light of clarity will begin to flicker again as Mercury goes back Direct. It may be a very faint light of clarity at first, yet no more than 10 days or so after it goes Direct, a fuller clarity will be revealed.

Sagittarius is like a fireplace of warmth and light as we move toward the darkness and cold of approaching winter.

Sagittarius is expansive, progressive, and always seeks to take the high road. It sees meaning in everything, and believes that solution to problems is inevitable. Hence it has faith and confidence in life and the Universe.

Its potential downfalls are in leaping before it looks, being impulsive, taking ill advised adventures, believing it is always right, and forgetting it has a body.

The Centaur’s archer shoots for the sky, forgetting it is has a horse’s body below. So Sag can sometimes be so manic in its zeal and excitement that it forgets to ground itself in the reality of the physical world.

Mercury has been Retrograde since November 16, the same day as Venus went back Direct. It started its Retrograde process on October 5.

So issues of relating and relationships have been on the front burners of our hearts and minds for a few months now.

And when Venus gets back to its original Retrograde starting point of 10+ degrees of Scorpio on December 17, our relationship lives can gain more sanity and clear direction.

So don’t go fast -forward on relationship issues at the Pearl Harbor invasion anniversary of December 7, when the New Moon in Sagittarius arrives.

And don’t go fast forward with decisions and relationship plans on December 6 when Mercury goes back Direct.

Wait till after mid December to begin being clear enough and energized enough for your life’s journey into the New Chapter to resume.

Not long afterward, on January 5, the power of transformation will drastically amp up. That is when the first of 2 eclipses will be ignited:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn conjunct both Saturn and Pluto.

And Eclipse Season pretty much begins after the New Moon in Sagittarius this week on December 7.   The first winds of new changes will blow in afterwards, then intensify greatly after the Solar Eclipse on January 5.

This New Moon in Sagittarius is more complicated than the usual New Moon in Sagittarius, as both Mars and Neptune- conjunct in Pisces- will square that New Moon in Sagittarius.

That Mars/Neptune conjunction in oceanic Pisces will bring in huge waves of chaotic emotions and events.

Is it not getting rather obvious that we are on the precipice of enormous change and transformation in the world?

The Trump presidency is about to face the strong grim hand of the Mueller investigation, and who knows where his presidency will go from there.  The American stock market is getting closer to crashing. And America seems to be ramping up the energies of battle against Iran, Syria, China, and Russia.

The Solar Eclipse on January 5 is in close opposition to the USA Natal Sun in Cancer.  Heavyweights Pluto and Saturn will be conjunct that New Moon and also opposite the USA natal Sun in Cancer.

The USA is so ready for powerful transformation now.

And many personal lives are also getting ready for further transformation and change.

So many people have been waking up these past couple of years, and are rejecting the old ways from an old paradigm and age.

We have been conditioned and programmed to be and act as the old world has required us. We are now breaking those chains and embracing new consciousness and ways of being.

The old world is slipping away no matter how much people cry for MAGA.  The past is in our rear view mirrors, but the future is being created now in our hearts, minds and lives.

The Universe has been showing us through its planetary cycles and symbols that we are needing to shift our ways of relating and communicating. Venus and Mercury Retrograde have been recently giving us that message and the experiences needed to make the changes. Here are some lessons people have been learning for the consciousness of the New Age:

Number 1 relationship lesson is to be truly present in our relating, not distracted by other things. That presence is the only way to truly listen to and see someone else.

Number 2 lesson is to know that empathy is necessary in making a healthy relationship of any kind. If we cannot put ourselves in the shoes of another we cannot understand their journey and perspectives. Just the process of trying to empathize brings us closer together.

Number 3 lesson is that no one is in essence superior to anyone else. Each of us is different  from one another, with equal value, and not superior or inferior.

Number 4 lesson is that everyone wants to love and be loved, no matter how they seem.

Number 5 lesson is that communication is so important to any kind of relationship. Authentically expressing our truth is not enough. We also need to be aware of how the other person “hears” what we are saying. We may need to rearrange our wording or our tone so the other person can truly take in what we mean to say.

Number 6 lesson is that it “takes two to tango” as my Mother used to say. It is not usually a matter of someone being right and someone else being wrong. And it is usually not a matter of someone being the villain perpetrator and the other an innocent victim. Creating stories in our minds like that are hard to acknowledge and release. And if not released, these stories come with us into new relationships, causing dysfunctions once again.

Each party needs to be held accountable for their part of the issue. Even if one person has cheated on the other , or one person has an addiction that has hurt the relationship; the relationship problem is always deeper than the outer circumstances would suggest.

Nevertheless, sometimes it is right to leave a relationship as the original contract has been ended or breached, and it is time to move on.

And now our contracts as individuals in the old age and paradigm has been ending. The Aquarian Age awaits us.   We are each in the process of consciousness transformation into that Age and Paradigm.

The next few months of Winter Eclipse Season 2019 is about to begin. I will have a new video coming out within the next couple of weeks.

Till next week,

Leo

Riding the Roller Coaster and Astrology Forecast November 25- December 1.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 24, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The recent Full Moon in Gemini and Venus being Retrograde are in our rear view mirrors now.

So now we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle, and we still have Mercury in Retrograde motion.

Later on in early December, on the day of the New Moon in Sagittarius, Mercury will also go Direct that day:  December 6. That day also represents the first winds of change for Eclipse Season 2019 blowing in.

So on December 6 there will be a strong feeling of moving forward.

From now till then, we are moving kinda downward and inward in anticipation and preparation for that important movement forward after the 6th.

For the last few months we have been confronting and attempting to resolve and heal various relationships and relationship patterns.

This has been and is essential, as working out these relationship patterns is helping to build the foundation of our New Chapter of life more fully and strongly.

No one wants too much heavy baggage to carry as we travel more fully into this New Chapter.

Some have gone back into childhood wounds and issues, or even past life relationship issues in order to work through the inner demons of relating that keep us stuck.

Letting go of the past relationship baggage means we need to let go of the old stories and dramas in our heads and hearts.

For instance, if you are telling yourself that nothing ever works out for you in relationships,  you need to confront that story inside yourself.

If you have told yourself that all men are selfish or that all women are conniving, for instance, then that will limit your ability to draw in men or women who are good for you.

And you know sometimes it is so difficult to let go of these stories, as we apparently have much proof from the past that will prove our point.

But this is the chicken that came before the egg, as believing something will tend to make it happen.

But regardless of which came first, the negative event or the negative belief, confronting the belief will serve you well.

Maybe a large part of the true reason no relationship has ever worked for you before is that you do not really like or respect yourself.  This can be worked on and resolved or healed sufficiently to help you let go of the story and attract better relationships.

So now, with Mercury still Retrograde, Venus not yet back to “normal”, and the lunar cycle in its darkening phase; we still are pausing and maybe rewinding our life memories in order to build healthier more functional relationships and lives.

Remember also that Jupiter is now in expansive, progressive, inspiring,  uplifting, and adventurous Sagittarius.

For the next year, while Jupiter stays in Sagittarius, you will have more ability to see things from a wider perspective, and more help in finding meaning or resolution for issues that have previously held you back.

And also remember that in January 2019 we will experience 2 more powerful eclipses, eclipses that are meant to help us break out of stuck places in our minds, hearts, and lives.

And this weekend, going into Monday/Tuesday, we will feel things opening up more as the Sun makes exact conjunction with Jupiter in Sagittarius on the 26th.

For many this will translate into desires for expansiveness, freedom, and/or travel and adventure.

Just keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde, so it is best not to be too impulsive or to jump to conclusions too quickly. That is one of the “side-effects” of the rising of spirit from Jupiter and Sagittarius.

Best now to process our thoughts and emotions, to find higher meaning for our lives,  and to get more in touch with what inspires us.

You can think more about final decisions, or taking action after the 6th or December, and probably not till after early January.

We enter the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle on Thursday the 29th, with the Moon in Virgo and Sun in Sagittarius.

We will receive a dose of sobering reality to counter any ideas or plans that are over inflated, grandiose, or in some cases just too positive.

Sag has a tendency to see the “glass as half full”, while Virgo has a tendency to see the “glass as half empty”. Truth lies somewhere in between.

On Friday the 30th, Venus in Libra will oppose Uranus in Aries. 

The days surrounding this planetary event will bring to some a breakthrough or awakening around relationships that have previously felt stuck. For others it will be a breaking away or freeing from an old relationship pattern or even liberation from a person.

Venus is no longer Retrograde, but it still has not gone back to where it started in Retrograde, which is a significant fact. It will be back to that place on December 17, completing that Venus cycle and completing the investigation and repairing of relationship.

Remember this can be a romantic relationship but also can be a family one, or friendship, or work related relationship.

In the greater world now, everything is certainly way out of healthy balance. So much is shaking up and breaking down. As we have been letting you know would happen, the stock market has been going down.

Saturn in Capricorn has been opposing the USA natal Venus and Jupiter in Cancer. And Uranus has been squaring the USA natal Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house (money, comfort, and security).

Eclipse Season will bring that same transiting Saturn to oppose the USA natal Sun in Cancer, while a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn will also oppose the USA Sun in Cancer.

Saturn and Capricorn are not expansive. They contract and limit. They represent gravity and hence bringing down to Earth.

This will mean more stock market downfall, though it may have a short up-lift as part of the process.

Our economy is transforming. Eventually, and hopefully there will be a good balance between capitalism and socialism as the result.

And Trump will face more slings and arrows thrown his way, especially by Mueller who heads the investigations of Trump.

And combative issues with Iran, Russia, Syria, China, and North Korea will soon expand also.

Cries for solutions for Climate Change will get louder and louder now also.

All is part of the enormous transformation of the country and world. Uncontrolled fear and panic are our only real enemies.

We are in certain movement toward the Age of Aquarius; and this current transition into a New Chapter of our collective and personal lives leads us into that New Age, which will begin with baby steps in the 2020’s, pretty much after the next presidential election.

Keep the faith, keep fighting for what you believe in, be aligned with the natural energies, frequencies and cycles of  the Universe, and keep your center and integrity during this roller coaster ride of our lives now.

Till next week,

Leo

 

 

 

Communicating and Understanding and Astrology Forecast November 18-24

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week showed us Venus passing the Retrograde baton to Mercury.  Mercury is now Retrograde until December 6, as Venus has gone back Direct.

What do Mercury and Venus have in common?  They are both about relating.

Mercury is communication, mostly mental and fast moving.  Venus is about relating, mostly from the heart.

Venus is also more indicative of the state of one’s relationships, romantic or otherwise.

Mercury is more indicative of thinking and analyzing, gaining information, and sharing the thoughts and information with others.

So with Venus going back Direct again now, we are beginning to move out of having our life spotlight on relationship issues, relationship patterns, relationship changes and healing.

Venus will not be back to where it started its Retrograde movement (10 degrees Scorpio) until mid December; so we still will need to repair, heal, find closure, or find some kind of resolution to relationships.

Last Friday Venus was going Direct on the same day as Mercury went Retrograde.  For many, the time surrounding those planetary movements were confusing,  disorienting, or difficult to understand.

Mercury will stay Retrograde until it goes back Direct on December 6, the same day as the New Moon in Sagittarius.

Remember that in the bigger picture we are moving out of an Old Chapter of our lives and into a New Chapter of our lives- on the way toward the Age of Aquarius.

With Mercury now Retrograde, we do not move forward right now. We ponder, reflect, and process.

We are best now if we do not try hard to find answers, do not jump to conclusions, do not hold onto or push rigid agendas.

With some people we are now in the process of saying goodbye, whether we consciously are aware of that or not.

With others we are in the process of seeing if it is possible to change old patterns and keep the relationship.

And in some cases we are wanting to know if a new relationship can be a part of our lives now.

As you look at the current state of relationships in the American political world,  the federal government is playing musical chairs with its employees. I have never before witnessed so much turnover in a president’s White House or Cabinet.

Mercury Retrograde promises more confusion and turnover in government, even while we still wait to see voting results from the recent Election Day.

So much is shifting and changing in our world, both collectively and personally.  It often seems like a replay of the revolutionary ’60s and ’70s, even including the comparisons between Presidents Nixon and Trump.

Nixon was the personification of what revolutionaries were fighting against.  To many, Trump now is the face of what is wrong in America.

One of the big differences between then and now is in how much more entrenched many are in the mud of our programmed world.

Yet the recent elections show a strong tide just beginning to form of people who believe we can change the world for the better.

Nixon was disgraced and left the presidency, the war in Viet Nam ended, rights for women and blacks had gotten so much stronger than before.  The world was truly beginning to transform.

Then there was a break in the revolution and evolution in the ’80s as Ronald Reagan’s administration sought to bring the country back to making “America Great again”.

And the revolution temporarily died as many people seemingly “sold out” and/or went to sleep. We were at that time likely meant to slow down and consolidate, before moving forward again.

Now over the last several years, the urge for change, transformation, revolution and evolution has picked up steam again.

And just like the ’60s and ’70s, there is a wall being built to stop the change.  Trump is the face on that wall for many.

And now as we move past 2018 soon, people are passionate about breaking down that wall.

And now there is much more likelihood  than in the ’60s, of everything crashing down in order to make space for this New Age to enter.

This wall coming down is like drawing the Tower Card of Tarot.  As it is coming down, some are feeling panic; others are feeling liberated from a confining world paradigm.

Many people will be “taking up arms” and picking sides for battle.  I suppose some are meant to do just that.

As the wall gets more cracks and holes in it from the Transformation getting more powerful, those in power will try to dominate and bully to “keep the order”.

And that could get ugly, just as it was when Jim Acosta, the newsman, was having his access to the White House taken away.

It has been subsequently given back to him by court order, but that kind of issue will get more and more difficult in coming months: to dominate those who disagree with you.

The old system will feel the need to dominate and control the citizens, forsaking the laws and principles of this country and its constitution.

Order will then be threatened by Chaos, and the wall will come down.

After Mercury goes Direct and there is a New Moon in Sagittarius on December 6, we will be in the early moments of the next Eclipse Season, which shows its first of two eclipses on January 5: a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn conjunct both Saturn and Pluto. 

And the walls came tumbling down.  Revolutionary Uranus will be changing from Retrograde to Direct on the same day.

But for now we are feeling our way through what needs to be let go and what stays. We are reflecting on our life priorities, on what gives our life meaning and where is our sense of direction and purpose now.

This week has the waxing Moon moving up toward a Full Moon in Gemini, as the Sun also moves into Sagittarius on Thursday/Friday November 22/23.

This Full Moon is exact on November 23 at 12:39 AM EST. Making this full moon more important and meaningful is the result of Jupiter being closely conjunct the Sun in Sagittarius and opposite that Moon in Gemini.

Making it even more meaningful is the fact that Mars in Pisces will be square to that Full Moon, creating a mutable T-Square.  This is a strongly influential Full Moon signature.

Complicating matters more is that Neptune’s fog will appear as Neptune moves from Retrograde to Direct on the 24th.

And of course Mercury is now and will be then Retrograde.

Sharing information and wanting to find answers are themes for this Full Moon. Communication through talking, texting, and email will be more important then usual.

There may be confusion in understanding what is being said or what is going on.  For some it will be a mental shit show, for others it may feel more mystical and otherworldly.

It has been getting more and more challenging to know what is fake news or fake information or fake pictures and stories.

As we come up on this complicated full moon with Mercury Retrograde, resist the temptation to figure it all out, or to fix it, or make it happen.

The more we push the river to flow faster, the more frustrated we will be. The more we jump to conclusions, the more we will get out of balance.

There is much emphasis on communication this week.  But it may be quite difficult to understand and make sense of everything. Too much expectation will bring too much disappointment now.

Trust and have faith in the Universe and yourself, that all is moving as it should, and that answers and meaning will appear at just the right time.

Till next week,

Leo

Breaking the Chains and Astrology Forecast November 11-17.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on November 10, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week was really intense for many.  Wednesday and Thursday brought a New Moon in Scorpio followed by the passage of Jupiter from Scorpio (where it had been for the last year) into Sagittarius (where it will be for the next year).

“Out with the old and in with the new” was a common theme, a theme which continues as one’s New Chapter of life is becoming more clear.

As Election Day was just before these important planetary passages, that fact plays into the Old Chapter/New Chapter theme.

Democrats took over the House of Representatives while Republicans kept dominance of the Senate.  And so now Democrats will have more power and will use that power to seriously counter the Trump presidency.

That shift in power will help define the New Chapter politically and culturally, as the so-called USA culture war goes to a whole new level.

And each of us is being “persuaded” to know more surely where we stand and what we believe.  It is more challenging now to keep a middle ground observation view between these two opposing forces,

And in many ways these two opposing cultural viewpoints are about the past and future, though most involved would likely not see it that way.

Conservative by definition is about keeping things as they have been, and Progressive by definition is about progress.

Much of what Trump and his followers want is “make America great again” which infers going back to the past.

So much is changing now in such a big way. Look at gender roles and expressions, as can be seen through transgender people and their rights.  Look at the growing influence of AI.   Some are seeing that robots will replace humans sexually, as sex robot brothels are opening up in the country.  New kinds of relationship are being explored with more people attracted to open relationships and poly-amorous relationships.

And some people are concerned that current minorities like African-Americans and Hispanics will before too long become the majority in the country, hence the fear of some white people.

And women are becoming more empowered than ever, which scares some who see old traditions and old religious gender roles dying. An accepted Patriarchy is seen to be passing away.

And underneath all this is a shift of power, as those who have long held power and privilege are losing it and know it.

In a healthier world we bring along with us some old ways and traditions, but we do not bring it back.  We move forward into a NEW world.

And the old privilege is certainly leaving our world, which is headed to greater fairness and equality.

And minorities will be in the majority before too long also.

And LGBTQ peoples will more and more be accepted in our new world, this is certain.

But other changes are up for discussion. Do we truly want robot sex brothels?  How far do we want to go with AI and robots in general.

And do we want to let go of traditional relationships and monogamy?  Do we want there to be choice in these matters? And are open relationships right for our world and society?

In a healthy culture there are kind and respectful discussions about matters like these, and some conservative ideas are taken with us as we progress into the future.  We decide together- No culture war!

But we all know that is not happening right now.  There is culture war.

There would not be a war if everyone rode this wave we are all experiencing, which cannot deny a changing world into a New Chapter and even bigger a New Age.

And then together we sort through that which is inevitable in this New Age, that which can be preserved from the old world, and that which is open to discussion.

Overall we are progressing into a world of Diversity Within Unity, equality and fairness, Love and Truth.  And as long as we stay true to those principles, all else will naturally form as it needs to.

So now as we pass the New Moon in Scorpio and get used to a full year of Jupiter in Sagittarius, we have begun to liberate ourselves from the parts of our individual lives that feel trapped and chained.

In essence, we are each free spirits that are adjusting to a world of matter and form.  This is how I believe we need to know life now.

From that view, we hold our spirits and souls in the highest regard, but also realize we came to this world of form for a reason, to actualize and manifest purpose.

We develop a healthy relationship between spirit and matter, and then this is the foundation for our personal and global transition into an Age of Aquarius.

This week,  we begin to open the wings of our spirits as we get used to Jupiter in Sagittarius.

For some this last week has been painful as the baggage from our old conditioning has weighed us and our wings down.  We need more work in resolving our past and releasing our old patterns and ways.

And of course as Venus stays in Retrograde, relationships are an important part of our transition. Old relationship patterns that do not serve our souls and lives are being transformed.

In some cases these relationships need to be released and let go of, as difficult as that may be.  Chains need to be broken now, hopefully through discussions between people, but if not unilateral breaking is necessary.

And at the end of this week Venus leaves Retrograde and goes back Direct. That happens on Friday November 16.

We then begin to get more clarity and direction about relationship, and we begin the process of needed change. Remember however, that Venus does not get back to the position it started its Retrograde movement at until December 17.

So clarity, direction, and needed changes in relationship may take some time longer for many.

Interestingly, on the same day as Venus goes Direct (Friday November 16), Mercury goes Retrograde.

Yes Mercury goes Retrograde this Friday November 16.   So confusion may be strong around this time.

Both Mercury and Venus are about relating. Mercury through the mind and Venus through the heart.

So mind and heart are seeking a new balance between one another. With Venus going Direct, our heart matter begin to clear up. But Mercury going Retrograde suggests our thinking and mental communications are readjusting.

As usual, Mercury Retrograde shifts our mental outlook, prompting us to be more reflective and “right-brained”.  We may also question what we have previously decided.

Additionally, people from our past may come back to us in our dreams, thoughts and in reality.  And this is just after Venus Retrograde may have done that with us.

Remember to let the process unfold without jumping to any fast conclusions. Mercury stays Retrograde until  December 6, when it goes back Direct again.

Much is in flux still, yet all is moving toward greater freedom from old programming, toward healthier relationships, and bigger steps into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Wings begin to spread open and Astrology Forecast for November 4-10

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on November 3, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Big Energy shifts this week can be seen through planetary movement.

It is certainly synchronistic that an important Election Day happens this week as the important planetary movements play out.

Early this week we continue inward and yin-ward movement as we are going through a last quarter darkening Moon in the sky.

Darkening fears have been trying to take over our consciousness.  Inner demons have been looking for more attention.

But this week we get strong triggering of our more active, vital impulses.

The darkening Moon shifts on Wednesday into a New Moon in Scorpio at 11:02 AM EST.  The day before, Retrograde Uranus shifts from fixed earth Taurus back into bold active Aries. 

Then the night of the New Moon in Scorpio, that same Uranus in Aries makes an inconjunct (150 degrees) connection with Jupiter as Jupiter has a last gasp of its year long placement in Scorpio.

On the day after the New Moon in Scorpio, Jupiter shifts from Scorpio into Sagittarius.  It will stay there for about a year.

Those planetary configurations will bring to us energies of passion, excitement, enthusiasm, awakenings, and new beginnings.

And these energy shifts happen surrounding Election Day in the USA. It will be a very intense day with a New Moon in Scorpio and the other planetary shifts surrounding that day. The uglier side of humanity will be stronger.  Yet “our better angels” will also be hanging out with us that day.

Before the election, Trump has the power, as president, to create events that tend to make him and the Republican Party look good.  Keep an eye out for that.

And both parties will be selling us on how life will bring tragic disasters if we vote for the other party.

Much will shift and open up after this election, as can be seen by the planetary movements this week.

Especially important to look at is the movement of Jupiter out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius.  The last time it was in Sagittarius was from November 2006- December 2007.

What was your life like during that time period? What similarities are there to now?

Moving from Scorpio to Sagittarius, Jupiter goes from being “down under” to “places in the sky”.

Pluto, guardian of the underworld, is the ruling planet of Scorpio.  Jupiter (Zeus) is the supreme god of the highest realms.  Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius and loves to be in that sign as it is this coming year.

Jupiter expands whatever it touches, so when in Scorpio it seeks to expand its influence in the lower realms, like our lower chakras or our more instinctual impulses. It also opens up our ability to see deeper within for deeper insights. And it seeks to bring us more fully into our passions and shows us more clearly what gives us that passion.  Sometimes, however, more “ugly” emotions are expressed with Jupiter in Scorpio.

While is Sagittarius, Jupiter expands our enthusiasm, our desires for inspiration, our search for higher meaning and solutions, for having a big picture look at issues.  Jupiter in Sagittarius will tend to expand the influence of our upper chakras, most often our crown chakra which wants to connect with the “sky gods” of meaning and inspiration.

And very importantly, Jupiter in Sagittarius motivates many to leap into things, to take new adventures. Of course that can be very good, but leaping before one looks closely at the potential consequences of such impulsiveness (called spontaneity by those taking the leap) can bring disastrous results.

This potential impulsiveness may show itself in our world, which is very vulnerable to dangerous triggers now.

Jupiter in Sagittarius does everything big, sometimes “bigger then life” so to speak.

Issues heat up while Jupiter is in Scorpio, bringing so much pressure to keep everything from blowing up.

Sagittarius is a fire sign, a free spirited fire sign. As such Jupiter in Sagittarius is often the match that lights the wild fire of our expressions and actions.

So that which was bottled up in Scorpio will open up in Sagittarius.

This next year will also tend to bring you to that which inspires you and lifts your spirits.

Jupiter in Sagittarius often heightens our connections to our intuition and motivates us to act on those intuitions.  It is best to check out the surrounding facts and to question what we are intuitively drawn to do before acting.

In the greater world, ill advised military adventures are more likely this coming year. There is also a better chance of manic over reactions when Jupiter is in Sagittarius.

Those who have been severely depressed this past year will have a better chance of breaking through their “down” feelings this year.

Many others will shift from “glass half empty” to “glass half full” this year.

So on election day expect your passion for what is important to you to be ignited with the New Moon being in passionate, primal Scorpio.

Then the next day with Jupiter going into Sagittarius, you will want to be more unbridled to express and do what you want to do. Your need for freedom will be much stronger this year.

In the greater world, powerful events are quite likely this week, events that will bring turmoil and out of control possibilities.

This election will tend to open up Pandora’s box of previously “kept in-tact” emotions and actions.

This recently opened New Chapter of our individual and collective lives will be in full throttle after this week’s shifts and changes.

There is definitely no turning back now.  It is soon time to let our spirits fly more, to open things up, to see thing from the big picture view.

You can more easily take the “high road” now.  Commit to doing that and not letting anyone or anything take you down from that place now.

Yes everything will be more out of control this coming year, but also there is an breaking out of stuck places that occurs also. Tightness will be difficult to maintain, locks will not keep your spirit locked up anymore. Open up your wings and fly this coming year. Jupiter in Sagittarius will facilitate that movement.

Also commit to finding the higher meaning to everything, including the most painful events that have happened in your life.

Everything does happen for a reason, and this coming year with Jupiter in Sagittarius lead your life with the faith and trust that accompany the knowing of “all happens for a reason”.

Likely there is shift to the left that will happen at this election, which will tend to further ignite the cultural war in the USA.

No matter how this election turns out, however, we are moving inexorably toward an Age of Aquarius.

And when you get clear about your Self and your mission,  you will have much fire inside you to inspire you to follow your heart, with your head as close adviser.

It is time to get off the fence of distractions, and to fire up your internal engines for the activation and manifestation of your purpose here on Earth.

Till next week,

Leo

Enter the Mystery and Astrology Forecast October 28- November 3.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 27, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is rather slow,  astrologically speaking.   There are no major planetary movements or motivators.   

Nevertheless, the pull downward and inward is powerful this week. The vast majority of planets are in yin signs: Water and Earth.

The 4th and last quarter of the current lunar cycle begins on Wednesday October 31st, adding to the downward theme.  Of course this means that the Moon is dimming in light more every day, until the turning point back to increasing light at the New Moon in Scorpio next week on November 7.

When the 4th quarter begins on October 31, we will be into Halloween that day.

More meaningfully October 31 is Samhain, a day honored as sacred by humans for many decades before our current time period.

Samhain is approximately half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice so is a yearly turning point to greater darkness and inward turning.

It is also recognized as a time when the veils between worlds is the thinnest.

To some that means that souls “on the other side” of the veil, are more easily contacted.  Spirits of the deceased are said to be more available to connect with then.

So Halloween’s ghosts and goblins and scary costumes are the modern answer to the sacred time of Samhain.

This is Sun in Scorpio time of year too, and Scorpio is ruled by the planet Pluto, known as the Guardian of the Underworld.

So the pull inward and yin-ward is strong this week, further enhanced by the Moon dimming its light as it passes through the last quarter of its cycle.

The Moon has a 28-29 day cycle, similar to a woman’s menstrual cycle, giving women an intimate connection with the Moon.

And Venus, another planetary representative of the Feminine, is still Retrograde in Scorpio, keeping it in the spotlight of our consciousness.

Overall this week, it is not a good time for goal orientation, or for focus on agenda or outer success.

It is much more a time for soul care, for deep feelings, inner healing, relationship care, inner insights, and nurturing for those in need.

Next week, after November 7, is the time for new beginnings at the New Moon in Scorpio. And on November 8 Jupiter leaves its year long journey in primal Scorpio.  It enters light inducing Sagittarius that day, where it will stay for a year

Interestingly, the day before the New Moon in Scorpio and two days before Jupiter enters Sagittarius, we have an important Election Day on November 6.

As we get closer to that Election Day, the current American civil war brought us mailings of pipe bombs this last week.

These mailings were sent to Democrats who have shown their opposition to President Trump.  As of this writing, a Trump supporting Florida man has been captured as a prime suspect in these crimes.

Election Day next week will bring a climax to recent confrontations between opposing political factions in the USA.

The New Moon in Scorpio the next day will show us whether Trump and the Republicans will keep the power structure as is, or whether Democrats can gain more power in the House and/or Senate.

The direction of the country will be more clear by the New Moon next week.

And of course the stock market and economy have been travelling downward lately.  We let you know in earlier writings that the Saturn transit to the USA natal Venus and Jupiter (which is happening now) would bring a downfall of stocks and the economy as a whole.

There is no escaping the dark part of the country’s transformation now.   Everything is being set up for America’s fall before its rise again as a more equal member of the world community.

We are moving toward an Age of Aquarius, which will open its portal in December 2020. Of course the world and country will not be all filled with love and light all of a sudden, but nevertheless the turning point will have been experienced.  Signs of the new world will be more evident.

And of course the next Presidential Election is a month before – in November 2020, so its results will show us some evidence that we are headed in the right direction forward.

So many people lately are showing signs of depression concerning Climate Change, feeling no hope of a good result.

No savior is coming to change direction for us.

We do have the ability I believe to come together as a human community to bring hope back into our minds, hearts, and souls.

And not just about Climate Change.    We also will bring back hope for our world in so many ways.

Love and Truth are waiting at the door for us as a collective to open to them.  That will bring us to where we need to be in our evolution as a species. That will also bring us to healing our Earth and its environment.

Spiritually speaking it is not as important to know how all will happen. It is of paramount importance to find the connections; to connect to Source; to connect to the knowing of how we are all one family, no matter what skin, nation, sexual agenda, religion, etc.

All the dots are connected in the Universe, not randomly placed.  Only our ignorance of that fact will separate us from the connections.

Allow yourself to surrender to the Oneness, including the Oneness inside of you.   That is what will bring us to where we belong, to what will heal us and help us to evolve.

Resist the temptation to complicate everything or make it all too difficult.  Love will bring us and All together. Truth will keep us sane and sound and real.  All needed will come from there.

This week we have the Yin-ward journey down into the Earth and Soul, into deeper connection with our lower chakras and middle eye.  That happens with the Scorpio influence; almost all planets in Earth and Water; and the light dimming from the last quarter Moon.

Some light of inspiration will emerge, however, as Mercury goes into Sagittarius on the 30th.

Then on the 31st with sacred soul insightful Samhain, we also experience Retrograde Venus opposing Uranus. 

That will bring some kind of shift or turning point in relationships mid week.  We are working on changing relationship patterns with Venus being Retrograde, and this week will bring some awakening on the matter.

Till next week,

Leo
