Chiron the Middle Man and Astrology Forecast June 11-17.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We went through a strong turning point last week, in alignment with the Full Moon in Sagittarius and Jupiter turning Direct.

Planetary movements lately have packed more punch than usual.   We are being given little leeway from making big transformational decisions and movements in our lives.

I have noticed lately that many people are rethinking what they want and where they are going.

I believe it because the turns we take this year, when we absolutely commit to them, will have no roads going back.  Bridges will be burned.

For many this is an important time of crossroads.   Are we really choosing which way we are going, or is it already determined by something larger than our personal will?

Perhaps the only choice we truly have is whether we decide to follow our “Higher Self” or our “Lower Self”.

Is there a middle ground? Are there options that would satisfy our “lower” self and “higher” self?

In this context I mean our direction toward the Heavens or instead toward the Earth;  or coming from our upper chakras or instead from our lower chakras.

Our crown chakra receives information and inspiration from “higher” realms, and our root chakra receives wisdom and pulls down toward the Earth.

Our religions have made that which is above (in Heaven) good, but that which is down below (Hell) bad.   Because of this programming we are taught not to trust our instincts, similar instincts that our animal brothers and sisters rely upon.

But when it comes to societal expectations, our lower chakras or lower instincts are often called upon in order to compete, to make money, to “play the game” of the world.  We believe we need those instincts so we can survive and thrive in our life.

Each one of us has a “natural” tendency to go toward either the higher or lower road.

In our myths, which may have more truth in them than we have been taught, the Olympian Gods and Goddesses up high were at war with the Titan Gods and Goddesses down on the Earth.

And each of us is a combination of the Gods and Goddessses from the Skies and the Gods and Goddesses from down on the Earth.

We spoke last week of the theory that people from other planets came to Earth and mated with people born of the Earth.

And it is interesting that the planets in astrology reflect the Gods and Goddesses from our “myths”, like Venus, Mars, etc.

So we live with a conflict between our “higher” needs and our “lower” needs.  Of course lower gets a bad rap, but in reality it is just having connection with the Earth and our creature comforts and needs.

Is there something in Astrology that links higher realms with lower realms?   There are the transformational planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto from on high, who are ambassadors for the Age of Aquarius. They are meant to help us to move beyond our old age and its ways.

Saturn on down represents our more personal mundane needs.

What is the link between them?: Chiron.

Chiron sits in between Saturn and Uranus, so perfectly between the transpersonal Deities on high and the more personal Deities from the gravity of Earth.  And interestingly, Saturn is considered the planet that represents gravity and grounding.

Chiron by myth was the wounded healer who took the place of Prometheus, he who was stealing fire from the Gods to bring to mortals of the Earth.

Chiron took over for Prometheus who was tied down, while his liver was being eaten by a large bird.

Chiron, who was a mentor and teacher of humans, asked the god of gods Jupiter if he could change places with Prometheus.  He was allowed to do so only if he would give up an important part of his immortality. This was not his ability to live forever, but was his ability to be distant from the feelings and pain of mortals.   He became the wounded healer god who could truly empathize with humans and their stuggles.

He did change places, and Prometheus was allowed to complete his task of giving fire or spirit or freedom to humans.

So you can see how Chiron was a bridge between higher and lower and between immortals and mortals.

So in your soul journey of transformation into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius, it is important to know that it is right to feel secure and safe and grounded and needing from your ego self, as long as it is in service to the needs of your Higher Self and Universe.

Look for Chiron in your natal chart to find clues on how to strike that balance.

This week, which is after the full moon last week, we move into the waning half of the lunar cycle.

The “climax” has already been experienced, and now it is time to process and begin to sort through what has been activated from that turning point last week.

Did you contemplate changing directions last week? Will you change?

Or do you need to make an even stronger commitment to the direction you had already chosen? Take your time.

The transformational process has times when we question the choices we have made, and sometimes we reverse course.

But usually the original choice was aligned with our natural transformational evolution. But maybe we “threw out the baby with the bathwater” and not honored our more human needs of comfort, security, affection, grief, and sensitivity for those left behind.

You may still keep to your original direction, and yet find balance with your needs for grounded security.

Now we process during this waning half of the lunar cycle.   And with Neptune going Retrograde on Friday the 16th, we need to let go, not think so much, and surrender to the process and the Universe this week.

If we try too hard to figure it all out this week from our left brain bottom line logic, we will get anxious and frustrated.

Trust is important now.  We can only truly surrender if we can be vulnerable enough to let go and trust in the process of Soul and the Universe.

Next week is Summer Solstice and a New Moon in Cancer.  So next week will give us more motivation to “get it together”.

But for now, let go and let the inner “gods and goddesses”weave their soul magic.

Till next week,

Leo

We will do a video in July for the important August Total Solar Eclipse.

There is a video now of my recent talk at the Enlightenment Expo that my friend Jonne Trees has recorded:     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D52FYcHTM3U.

The subject is about navigating the planetary changes this year.

Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created recently- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2WIRHQ5IQ

If you need any help with your relationship now, I have done couples’ counseling for many years. Do you need to identify and work out old patterns? Do you need to decide whether to stay or go?  I use the astrological model to help in the counseling process. We can use Skype if outside New England. Write me at soulus@aol.com if interested.

Expanding the Viewpoint and Astrology Forecast June 4-10.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on June 3, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in such powerfully changing times now.   Though sometimes it looks bleak, please remember we are in a New Chapter of Life, a chapter which is a transition between ages.

As we have stated before,  many back in the ’60s/’70s frequently said then that “we are in the worst of times and the best of times” all at once.

If one only feels like these are horrible, terrible times; then one is not seeing a positive future, one is seeing only the worst possibilities.

And yea some will say back to me- “the difference is that now climate change efforts are being thwarted which could mean the end of our world”. Or “it looks like there will be nuclear war which will destroy us all”.

Understood- the stakes now seem higher than back in that old ’60s era.

And that is because we are now much further into the doorway between ages.

At that place between worlds, all of our demons are staring us in the face trying to shove us back into the old room of an old age and paradigm.

The power holders of the old age are desperately clinging to their privilege in that old age.  They will not die easily.  And as we let our fears disempower us, we are enabling that old behavior to prevail.

There is death upon us now, as there is birth now. This is the nature of Nature and of Transformation.

We cannot concentrate on the horrors of the death.  We must focus on the creating of the new birth.

Life is a circle, not a straight line.  The world is round not flat.  The Moon looks round to us as does the Sun.

Universe, Nature, God/Goddess is speaking to us with its round symbols:  We are not facing ultimate and final death, we are instead changing Seasons or Ages in the great circle of Ages.

And in another 2150 years we will be at the precipice of another Age, the Age of Capricorn.

We are evolving into the consciousness needed to be a part of the Age of Aquarius.  We need to concentrate our efforts on that evolution, not that so many others seem to not be evolving.

Everyone does not need to evolve now.  The mutation we are going through will need many to evolve, as is truly happening, but not even a majority will be needed.

And we may have people who have come from other star systems here to help us to evolve. And perhaps unbeknowst to you, you may be one of them.

Everyone is not necessarily part of the Earthly reincarnation wheel, but have come from other places and are new to the realities of Earthly existence.

And some may be hybrids combining people from other star systems with people from the Earth.

Noted scholar Zecharia Sitchen, who wrote many books including “The 12th Planet”, studied Sumerian writings from 5000 years ago.  From those studies he believed passionately that a Giant race from the planet Nibiru came here to Earth, became the Gods and Goddeses of our early Myths, and mated with early Earthlings to create- we humans.

Even the Bible states that: the Sons of God mated with the Daughters of the Earth.  What does that mean?

Perhaps it means that people from the heavens mated with people from the Earth.

We are changing our paradigms, which are made of old stories,  and we need to be open to new human stories other than the ones we have been programmed to believe.

Creationism versus Darwinian Evolution.  Perhaps neither theory is the ultimate reality.

Nature verus Nurture. My astrological knowledge shows me there is something else going on that is not just about our genetic structure or how we were molded by our society or family.  We are Souls first and foremost and astrology maps show us these souls and their soul journeys in this incarnation.

If we are to evolve into a New Age, we need to open our minds to new possibilities.  Look now how we are being asked to open to the idea that some people were born in the “wrong bodies” and are becoming their true self in a different sexual gender.

We have so many preconceived ideas about everything, and now need to be open to the new ideas and new ways.

But usually this process of transformation happens so slowly that we have time to digest new ways and do deep processing.

But now all seems to be happening so fast, and we are needing to accelerate our development.

Yes there are nuclear weapons all over the globe, and yes the climate is changing and some very dangerously do not recognize it.

But it is so important now to have faith in a greater movement beyond that which we totally understand.  We must have faith in life, or faith in Universe, or faith in God, or faith in Goddess, or faith in Nature and the Earth, or faith in humanity, or faith in Star People, or faith in whatever you believe is bigger than just you and me.

We have some big trials coming up this summer and autumn, and we are being tossed around now to get us ready for that transformational challenge.

This week we move through a shifting of energies: Venus moves from Aries to Taurus, and also this week there is a Full Moon in Sagittarius on the same day as Jupiter goes Direct.

Venus moves into Taurus on June 6.

Venus has been in Aries on and off since February 3.  Then it went Retrograde while still in Aries- on March 4. It dipped back into Pisces for awhile, but while Direct it moves back into Aries.

This has put relationships in the spotlight of our lives, and many realtionships have gone through some rough weather during that time. A fair amount of them have ended or faced the possibilities of ending.

But through it all, the main issue that has arisen during Venus in Aries has been the issue of the empowerment of women and the Feminine.

Now as Venus goes into Taurus, this empowerment is made more solid and more long lasting.

Venus in Taurus, which will continue till July 4, is also about being more sensuous and enjoying the pleasure of our senses; getting more comfortable with security and money issues; and making any relationship changes more solid.

The Sagittarius Full Moon is on Friday June 9 at 9:10 AM EDT.

This Full Moon has the Sun in Gemini and the Moon directly opposite in Sagittarius.

It is a full moon of potentially lively communication.  It will bring expansive energy into our consciousness and lives.

And not long after the Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 9, Jupiter (the guiding planet of Sagittarius) will be strong in our energy fields while changing from Retrograde to Direct.

Much new and arousing energy will be activated in the 3 or 4 days surrounding these events.

Anything “chained up” will want to be liberated.   Ideas and feelings will be unleashed. People will feel more free to speak their minds.

Some will be inspired, and others will want to take new adventures.  Looking at the issues in your life from a bigger more expansive picture will be supported.

Some however will “leap before they look” and jump into things that cause difficulty. Some will “raise flags” for some big agenda of theirs, push it on others, and feel that nothing can bring them down.

These June 9 planetary events may bring an important turning point in personal lives and worldly affairs.

Till next week,

Leo

Of the People, by the People and Astrology Forecast May 28-June 3

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Things are speeding up and will soon be heating up, figuratively and literally.   The New Moon in Gemini last week signified faster movement forward, especially in contrast to the Taurus cycle which has passed.

Some of you had a difficult day on or around that new moon, as Venus squared Pluto and brought up relationship issues, or living situations that need to be addressed, changed, and moved beyond.

This finishes up what was left of the Venus Retrograde passage that ended mid April when it went back Direct.  Though the Venus aspect last week may have been quite difficult and intense, this week you should be more clear about the status of any important relationships, or real estate and money issues.  For women issues around personal empowerment may have been challenged.  Hopefully you are stronger now and will stand your ground with what you know is right.

Is there new life in a relationship now, or is it time to begin saying goodbye? Is there new life to where you live, or is it time to find a new place? Have you found a way to better handle money and security issues?

In the greater world, everything is getting more messed up.

The Trump presidency is in full swing now, and unless there is a major move toward impeachment soon, his ways will reach full stride soon.

His foreign policies, if we can call them that, are bringing us to a very dangerous position.  North Korea and Iran are in the administration’s crosshairs, and it is building a coalition that will oppose those states as well as Russia and maybe China.

Though France and Iran have chosen more moderate governments lately and put pause to the trend toward nationalism, in the USA the Trump administration is still moving toward nationalism and fascism.  When big security issues come our way, that is when his administration will get more militaristic and dominating of individual freedoms and rights.

The challenge now is for “we the people” to speak loud and clear that this country and world belong to us.

This is the nature of an Age of Aquarius, just as was initiated at the American revolution, at the time when the Aquarian planet Uranus was discovered- 1781.

“Of the people, by the people and for the people”- liberty, equality, and diversity within unity.

The USA natal Moon in Aquarius show us those values.  But now they are for our whole world not just America.

Most especially in August, when the eclipses will be triggering the USA natal Moon in Aquarius, we will need to make our presence strong.

Trump’s Mars and rising sign in Leo will also be triggered then, and those placements are opposed to the USA Moon in Aquarius.

So his Leo stance of narcissistic and individual dominance being more important than all else will be openly opposed to those Aquarian values.

This is the potential negative expression of Leo, not its normal and healthy shining of creative light to all around it.

So moves he makes in and around August will fuel the issue of dominance by authority versus rule by the people.

Interestingly, it is how it all came to be after 1776.  Out with the King.  Bring in new democratic values to replace rule by authority.

Remember that the more chaotic events become, the more leverage “rule by authority” has with the average person. So expect this summer to bring very volatile energies and events, so we can transform old attitudes more consistent with an old age.

This week we are still on our way up, with a waxing Moon moving toward a Full Moon, which will be on June 9, which will be an important turning point day this month.

Mars will oppose Saturn on Sunday/Monday, which gives us a stop or slow down message.

Then on Tuesday/Wednesday Mars sextiles Uranus, which gives us a break out and break free message.  So this week gives us conflicting messages.

Keep things stable or break out and break free?

Venus conjuncts Uranus while the Sun trines Jupiter next Saturday June 3.  So later in the week the messages are more clear.

It is time to bring more energy and change into life, to get out of ruts and inner prisons in our minds.

Especially with what is coming soon, it important we each work on our consciousness and step up our efforts for healing and transformation.

More and more people are being shaken out of their slumber.  The way the world and the USA have been moving lately is a trigger for new wake up calls.

We are not poor victims to the powers that be.

That is not what the colonists felt when they started the American Revolution.

It is not what the French people felt when they overthrew the autocratic royalty in France during the French revolotion in the late 18th Century.

This is not what the Russian people felt when they overcame the Czars in Russia and created the Russian Revolution in 1917/18.

It is not what the Indian people felt when they stood up to Britain behind Mahatma Ghandi in 1930.

It is not what our black brothers and sisters felt when they stood up to the authorities, especially in the South, with Martin Luther King in the ’50s.

It is not what the South Africans felt when they confronted their government authorities along with Nelson Mandela in the ’90s.

This overthrowing of dominating royalty or dictators or restrictive governments has been a trend over the last few centuries.

Those events were the changing winds blowing in for an Age of Aquarius.

More of those liberating events will need to erupt in order for us to manifest more solidly the New Age.

First work on your consciousness and release the programming of your minds and hearts.   Our fears are what cause us to be controlled. Our believing the lies are what cause us to be controlled.

Love and Truth set us Free

Till next week

Leo

Moving Forward and Moving On and Astrology Forecast May 21-27.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on May 20, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It is time this week for more movement;  more social interaction; more talk and communication; more motivation to question people and question set ideas;  desires to learn more; and ability to be more objective in one’s thinking.

This is because we turn this week to Gemini energetics as the Sun goes into Gemini on Saturday May 19, and the Moon catches up to the Sun in Gemini to form a New Moon in Gemini on Thursday May 25 at 3:44 PM EDT.

Gemini time also brings faster mind and with it potentially more frenetic energy; an abundance of information that needs to be processed; as well as sometimes scattered mind and interests.

The slo-mo of Taurus is ending, as we are also leaving our comfort zones later in the week.

Especially after the New Moon on the 25th,  our minds will get more active, new ideas will open up for us, and generally we will want to get going with our lives.

New chapters opened during Aries time of year; were solidified or went dormant during Taurus time;  and now we will open more doors to our new world.

Also on Thursday May 25 Venus in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn.    This aspect will help to show you the final results of the recent Venus Retrograde period,  and also help you to clean out and release that which still keeps you hanging on.

In your relationships, what came out during Venus Retrograde?  Did you become more aware of relationship patterns that stop you from healthy, intimate relating?  Did you become convinced that any relationship must end? Did you come to realize the love you felt for someone and the value of that relationship to your life?

There may also have been body issues or issues of home or land that were being worked out during Venus Retrograde.

Hopefully, whatever has been blocking your way with relationship or security issues is being cleared up, so you can more authentically navigate your life.

If you truly want to embrace your greater destiny in this New Chapter of life, it is essential that you let go of that which has kept you protected from the Empowerment that comes from following your Soul’s inner wisdom.

Do you always end up procrastinating and saying you will let go and fly forward after your health is better, or after you feel more secure financially, or after your mom or dad dies, or whatever?

Timing is everything, and when you receive clear messages that it is time to make change, it is best to figure out a way to make it happen.  Figure out a way to get by financially or figure out a way to live with your health issues while you are making these changes.

People do not often, while on their death bed, regret not having paid their bills or not having been more stable and practical.

They regret not following their dreams, or not fully actualizing themselves, or not living their lives with a sense of purpose and meaning.

Yes indeed we have a practical life to satisfy;  but do your material concerns govern your life choices, or instead do your spiritual visions and deep seated dreams govern your life?

Do you follow spirit as your guide in life, and then use the material world, money, etc. to support your soul’s journey?

Or do you have your material needs in life drive you, while the spiritual or religious parts of life give support to those material needs?

Are you an eternal spirit and soul who uses a temporary material body and material world to manifest your soul’s intentions in accordance with the needs of the Universe and your human community?

Or are you a material body who wants to use spirit to energize and keep the body vital, so it can be successful in the material world. And then if you do not commit too many sins of the body, you will be rewarded by living in heaven after you die, or punished to live in hell.

Right now here on the Earth we are at a major crossroads.

Can we evolve into beings who will bring in the Age of Aquarius, and so let Love and Truth guide our way to transformation and healing the human family and our Earth home?

Or are we at the end of the line, clinging to keep an old paradigm alive, one that has no more real life, separates us from one another, and sees little meaning beyond our material concerns or religious commandments?

Look at the world out there.  What do you see?

Get over the fallacious thinking that this world’s current problems are because of Donald Trump or because Hilary unfairly lost the election.

The truth is that our world has been moving to this point for a long time now.

And don’t stay long in thinking “what kind of God would produce this kind of world with its violence, poverty, inequities, etc?”

Forget about blame or fault. It is like blaming one person or another for a broken relationship or marriage.

The truth is usually that the life of the relationship died, and it is time to move on and start a new life.

When they do not move on beyond each other or instead try to reawaken their hearts and souls for one another, all ends badly. Or they stay trapped together.  Their souls decay and they lose their more pure soul values.

And then comes the blame game.  People blame and make enemy, and then everything gets uglier and uglier.

Our human community is ready for a new start and new paradigm, and needs to let go of the old one without blame or demonizing anyone or any group.  It is simply time to move on.

We are in an important transition between ages,  transforming consciousness from an old paradigm to a new one

And it is now our responsiblity to lead the way into this New Age.

And what can each of us do?  We know no one can save the world now.

But each of us can work on our own consciousness and soul.  We can release old and toxic programming of our minds and hearts.

Through healing, we can come to greater peace with our wounds and traumas.

We can find a path to more compassion for our selves and others.

We can dedicate our selves to being open to truth beyond what we have been conditioned to believe.

We can work at opening our hearts so love can find a way in.

We can use spiritual practices to better align with the Universe so we can follow the signs and symbols that show the way.

We can commit to finding and honoring our Authentic Soul Self, and living and expressing its truth.

We can believe and have faith that our human family is inherently “good” and will find its way now.

For now, let this week of Gemini energy lighten you up and get your mind going with new ideas and better communication.

The first few days of this week finds us in a dark moon phase, until the New Moon in Gemini on Thursday the 25th.

Let that event then flood your cells with new life and renewed hope.

Till next week,

Leo

All In This Together and Astrology Forecast May 14-20.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 13, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we move past the Wesak Scorpio Full Moon from May 10, we experience the waning half of the lunar cycle that was begun at the Taurus New Moon on April 26.

This current lunar cycle ends at the Gemini New Moon on May 25.

So now as we move downward with the waning Moon, we process all that has been happening since April 26.

The 4th and last quarter of the Taurus lunar cycle happens on Thursday May 18, with the Moon in Aquarius.

Even more processing energy is then available, as well as needs to finish things up, and use more of our detached thinking abilities (Moon in Aquarius).

Moving out of concentration on the physical plane and into more mental concentration will continue as the Sun moves into Gemini on May 20, and then with the New Moon in Gemini on May 25.

Until then the trend is still toward nature, our bodies, the Earth, as well as security, money, physical pleasures and physical resources.

This time concentrating on the physical plane grounds us and grounds our recent ideas, intentions, and visions.

We have slowed down and it has been easier to stay present and pay attention to our surroundings.

Possessions are also important for Taurus and they will hold on for dear life to what they want to keep in their lives, including people.

As we move into Gemini energies and experience, we will find it easier to let go and be more flexible, especially mentally.

Gemini is a mutable air sign, and just using that as a metaphor can give you a sense of what that means.

Everything is lighter and one is more open to thoughts, ideas, information, and communications that stream in and out.  Changing one’s mind is easier to do during Gemini times.

Donald Trump is a Sun in Gemini and it is obvious how often he changes his mind and policies.

For instance he had stated clearly before he was elected that the USA should not intervene in other countries’ affairs like we did in Iraq and Libya. He said we should not fight Syria, but instead put all our concentration on the Islamic State.

Then he decides to bomb Syria when he receives uncollaborated information that Syria used chemical weapons against its own people.

We will not be able to know what he will do next on most any issue, as his ideas will keep changing.  His ethics are totally situational, as they are for many Geminis.

There is not a tendency toward firm foundational mental structures composed of firm ideas and principles.  Instead their minds are changeable and fluid.

Of course this mental fluidity can be great for fast thinking, and tends to be open minded to new ideas and ways of perceiving things.

But it also can be clever at turning and spinning words deceptively.  It may not always be conscious of the fact that it is lying or deceiving.

And of course this open mind will be valuable when new information becomes available, like with Extraterrestrials or Star People, or with investigations into cases that were previously and apparently solved and carved in the stone of set opinion.

But in Trump’s case, his narcissism may need him to spin toward what is favorable to his image of himself and to what he wants to believe, and what he wants us to believe.

He is not a “normal” Gemini, but instead a flawed and unbalanced one.  When someone is flawed or deeply traumatized or with mental and emotional imbalance; they will respond in the worst way of what a sign can be.

For instance Leo is a sign of heartfelt, authentic creative expression. It shines a light of hope and happiness.  That is at its best.

At its worst Leo is totally self centered, dominating, and even narcissistic. It places a high priority on its image and popularity.

Bill Clinton, a Sun in Leo, is a good example of someone who expresses both the highest and lowest potential of what a Leo can be.

Donald Trump has Leo as his rising sign, and his Mars is in Leo conjunct that Ascendent.

When the August Total Solar Eclipse New Moon erupts in August this year, Trump’s Leo tendencies will be heightened because that Eclipse is closely conjunct both his Mars and Rising sign .

His aggressively defensive ego (Mars in Leo) will be triggered by some world event and/or person. And he will then very likely overreact to the situation causing some major experience and drama.

The USA, Israel, North Korea, and Syria will also have important natal planets very closely triggered by that eclipse. This August will be a very important turning point month for world affairs.

We are all so closely connected in so many ways now to peoples all over the world with mass transportation, international commerce, and international communication systems that relatively recently includes social media too.

Just yesterday 99 countries were affected by someone who hacked Microsoft software. Hospital systems and other important systems suffered as a result.  Real innocent people were also greatly affected as a result of this hack.

There will be more events that awaken us more to the fact that we are all so closely connected to one another in this world.

While we have connected so well through media and commerce and other ways, in human to human relations we have not done so well.

Too many of us still make foe or enemy of those who are different: different nation, race, sexual orientation, gender, political affiliation, or religion.

We have a long way to go before we deeply acknowlege we are all of the same family here on Earth.

What will it take for us to evolve to this place of Diversity within Unity, the consciousness needed to enter the Age of Aquarius?

Will we experience an even more devastating computer failure, one that breaks down our usual ways to survive and thrive every day? How about a World War?  Maybe mass communication from some person or group who wants to take over the world or who tell us they are a Savior(s)?  Or maybe a worldwide seen Visitation from other dimensions or planets?

We are quite a ways from having enough people in Age of Aquarius consciousness.   Will the December 2020 date I see as a marking point in our journey to an Age of Aquarius show us enough people in that consciousness to give us hope we have entered the gateway?

This week, however, will be rather tame in comparison to those aforementioned potential events.

Use this week to ground your self and your life, to maybe bring more together what has been your past.   You can then be in better position to more completely embrace this New Chapter of our personal and collective lives on Planet Earth.

This is an important year in our evolution.

Till next week,

Leo

Full Moon in Scorpio and Astrology Forecast May 7-13

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 6, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The relational planets Mercury and Venus will be rather comfortably back Direct this week.   Relational issues should be better defined, and direction easier to discern.

I know that while Mercury was changing directions last week back from Retrograde to Direct, for some that meant some confusion or craziness.  Mercury is known as a trickster planet, and it can be at its trickiest when changing directions.

We are certainly in a whole New Chapter of life, the election of Donald Trump making that fact more obvious.

So many people are divided from one another, not seeing the connections very easily anymore.  Yet at the same time, the connections are there if you are in the proper head and heart place inside your self.  In fact energies that bring everything together are stronger than ever.

At the same time, a large group of people are taking walled-in sides against one another, see others as foes or enemies, or at least see others as “those people”:  democrats versus republicans; America versus North Korea or Russia or Iran; women versus men; Judeo-Chrisians versus Muslims; whites versus blacks; hetero versus homosexual, etc.

Perhaps we should have night fight day or cold fight hot?  If you look at a ying/yan symbol you will see opposites of black and white joined together in a circle.

This is how it is meant to be.  Opposites are part of the same whole.  There was a time when democrats fought republicans for what they each thought was right and best for the country.

But they still knew they were both together as Americans wanting to do what is best for the community.

Now these groups no longer seem connected in the circle.  They represent two cultures at war with one another, and as a result very little gets accomplished for the best of the people of this country and world.

The Civil War was a time when two very different American cultures went to war with one another, as there was no connecting bridge between them.

And so much in America and in the greater world is that same way now.  So much seems to be falling apart as a result.

Yet ironically the spiritual movement toward connection of all is at its strongest.  More and more people are waking up to the knowing of that circle that connects us all.

Still there are wide differences of opinion and ways of life, but the knowing we are nevertheless joined as one whole family is keeping the circle from splitting apart.

Empathy is the most important quality needed to keep the circle intact.  When we only focus on ourselves, without also feeling where someone else is at, we break the circle.

That does not mean you give your self away or make your needs less importnant than someone else.

Instead you keep your individual integrity while realizing someone else is different and needs different things. Even if you cannot live with a person anymore, you still recognize they are not wrong- just different.

If we keep seeing everything from a winner/loser or superior/inferior or ultimately judgmental view, we break that circle and create a drama that makes everyone miserable.

Sports is a good outlet for winner/loser contests and dramas, but everyday relationships are a really bad way to have competitions or wars.

It is true that sometimes Scorpio or Aries energies are prone to go there, but it does not have to become a “fight to the death” battle between people.  Hash it out intensely, but come back to the circle of connection at least inside your self.

At the same time, don’t let that empathic connection to that other person change your resolve for independence or empowerment.

Every important realtionship in our lives came to us for a meaningful reason.  When we have to let each other go, that original meaning is a connecting thread between you- even after you part.

That sense of meaning brings the circle together.

This week there is a Full Moon in Taurus/Scorpio on Wednesday May 10 at 5:42 PM EDT.

This annual full moon is called the Wesak Full Moon.  Some say it reflects when the Buddha was born.

At its best the Sun in Taurus represents solid, secure, comfortable calm.  At its best the Moon in Scorpio represents depth of feeling, insightfulness and passion.

At its worst Taurus represents stubborn holding on, greed, and lack of passion; while Scorpio at its worst represents rage, insane jealousy, and vindictiveness.

Inside yourself this Full Moon will best serve you if you are able to find a balance between passion and calm,  between powerful emotion and rock solid groundedness.

This full moon sometimes brings with it tugs of war between people, and sometimes it brings up issues of money or other resources.

This full moon has some potential also to shake things up as Mercury conjuncts Uranus in Aries and the Sun trines Pluto the day before.

This full moon also has the potential to bring some magic and otherworldly elements as Mars squares Neptune the day after the full moon.  Life may also feel out of control or confusing the few days surrounding these events.

On Friday May 12 Mars trines Jupiter.  This is a good time to get new ideas, to be inspired, to talk things out.

There may also be a tendency to talk alot or take in an overwhelming amount of information.

Let spirit take you but do your best not to leap before you look.

Remember again that our individual lives want to change and transform, as our global world is transforming also.

Stay aware of what needs to be released in the process of change, and what you need to hold onto, if you can, for the sake of some stability.

Winds of change will pick up appreciably this summer, so allow yourself some flexibility so the Universe can more gracefully move through you in ways that are needed.

Mercury Direct and Astrology Forecast April 30- May 6

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

One or the other of the two main relationship and communication planets have been retrograde since March 4.   This week when Mercury goes back Direct again, both will be back in their usual forward motion.

Mercury is a planet of mind and communication.  As many of you have experienced, when Mercury is retrograde we may readjust our thinking and perceptions, rethink the directions in life we have chosen, and rewind to previous times in our life.

Together, Venus and Mercury have been readjusting our relationships, making us more aware of what we say and how we say it, and perhaps even shifting our attitudes and beliefs around money and material resources.

Now with both of them back Direct, there is the beginning of gaining more clarity and direction in our thinking and with our relationships.

Some of you during this Retrograde period have been re-evaluating your relationships and chronic patterns in your relationships.  Some of you have experienced a crisis that has forced you to make serious changes in your relationships or relationship patterns.

This is not only about romantic relationships but also about platonic friendships, family and work relationships.

Do you tend to give your power away?  Are you now more commited to speaking your truth and not sacrificing and giving too much.

Relationships are meant to be give and take, with both people giving and receiving from one another.  If you are doing much more giving than receiving, it is like breathing out and not breathing in, metaphorically speaking.

These patterns of giving more than receiving can be seen in a natal chart, yet also are “inherited” from family conditioning,  programming into women from society,  and acting out of guilt from religion.

The more a person is centered in their heart while in relationship balance with their mind, the better able they are to have healthy give and take relationships.

Now with both Mercury and Venus back Direct, we can move forward with enough knowledge and information to know what to do with our relationships.

The actual day of Mercury Direct is Wednesday May 3 at 12:33 PM EDT.   It will then slowly get back to speed, so for a week or so after it goes back Direct clarity and direction will be unfolding.   You will be better at making decisions, and better prepared for initiating new projects.

Also this week on Monday May 1 there is Beltane, an ancient celebration of relationship, fertility, and relationship balance.   Moving around a maypole is an old tradition of Beltane.

Interestingly, it synchronizes this year with the recently Direct motion of Venus and Mercury now going back Direct.

Relationships on the global stage are shifting and changing also.  The USA connections with North Korea, China, Russia, and the Middle East are in the process of big change.

The way it will now shake out is very important to world peace or war.

People often ask how much influence our individual and collective intention and prayer have on world affairs.

There is a thin line between what is meant to be and what we can create through our human consciousness and actions. This is what co-creation is all about.

It is worth our time and effort to focus our loving energies toward world affairs.  Even if we are not able to shift the direction the world is moving toward, putting more love in the world will always work toward making our human experience better and better.

No matter what happens, we are in the process of deep transformation of our consciousness and lives on the way to an Age of Aquarius.

The transition time between an Age of Pisces and an Age of Aquarius is powerful.  Yes there are birth pains that will show through difficult world events and challenging personal life events, but there will also be more and more awakenings, more portals opening for greater love and truth, and more magic and synchronicity.

There is a pull toward staying in old consciousness that will be helped if you give into fear or rage.  There is also more inspiration to move into new consciousness as you trust in love balanced with truth, trust the Universe, and trust in the wisdom of your own soul and body.

The movement toward the Age of Aquarius is getting stronger and stronger, even as Rome is burning, so to speak.

I believe that December 2020 will be an important marker for the official dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime, we will be experiencing a most intense and tumultuous part of the transition between ages.

This August 2017 will bring a major turning point in our collective Soul’s journey into the New Age.

There will then be two eclipses, the second one most important and powerful.  It is a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo, covering the whole of the United States. It triggers planets in the natal charts of Donald Trump, the USA, Syria, Israel, and North Korea.

I am sure we will all be challenged to stay on our paths toward more love and truth in our lives.  The pull toward fear and old attitudes and beliefs will be strong.   So we will need to keep our focus, our center, and our alignment with the Universe.

The current lunar cycle, begun at the New Moon in Taurus, is still waxing toward a Full Moon, which will be on May 10 in Scorpio.

So now, especially after Mercury goes Direct on May 3, we are getting more clear in our minds and hearts and directed to moving forward with our lives.

Be attentive to the fact that often the time surrounding Mercury changing directions can feel strange while at the same time feeling a sense of relief.

Till next week,

Leo
