Resting Up and Astrology Forecast July 2-8.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Cancer New Moon on June 23.  So thus we are waxing our way up to the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 7/8.

So this week we are only 3 weeks away from the intial winds of Eclipse Season. Then the 1st eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon will be on August 7.  The 2nd eclipse, a most powerful Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo will be on August 21.

These Eclipse Seasons usually happen twice a year, with 2 eclipses in each season.

Eclipse Seasons begin two weeks or so before the first eclipse in a season, and extend to at least two weeks after the last eclipse in a season. These seasons are almost always big turning points in world and personal affairs.

The last Eclipse season was from January 27- March 27 2017.

The Eclipse Seasons often have breakdowns of old habits, patterns, beliefs, and sometimes even breakdowns in relationships, jobs, families, and home lives.

But just as frequently there are usually breakthroughs into awakened thoughts and new ways of living, better relationships, jobs and home lives.

Change is quite frequent during Eclipse Seasons, and much of that change can become transformational, and can open one up to healing of old wounds and traumas.

Keeping status quo is difficult during an Eclipse Season, and usually some part of one’s life will show big movement and change, even if it is one’s belief systems or ways of perceiving one’s life.

Often the issues that are ripe for change and transformation show up before the Eclipse Season, but the intensity of need for their transformation heats up appreciably during the Season, and especially so close to the actual Eclipse event.

If a country or person has any of their personal natal planets in close aspect to the sign and degree of the Eclipse, then that country or person will be most challenged with issues that require one’s close attention.

For instance the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21 will be at almost 29 degreees of Leo.  Donald Trump’s natal Ascendent is at 29 + degrees of Leo and his Mars is at almost 27 degrees of Leo.

So his rising sign, which signifies how he interacts with his world, and his Mars, which signifies how he asserts, fights, and defends himself, are in self involved Leo.

Leo expresses openly and creatively, but when out of balance expresses in a totally self centered way, which if taken to the limit becomes narcissism.

That Leo part of his disposition will be triggered around the eclipse, and since specifically his Mars in Leo will be triggered, he will be vociferously fighting or defending himself (even more than usua), and not unlikely will be using that aggression as Commander in Chief of the United States military.

If your own natal planets will be triggered, you too will have parts of your psyche and life activated and put in the spotlight for change and transformation.

If you have planets from 26 degrees Leo to 1 degree of Virgo you will be greatly affected by that Total Solar Eclipse on August 21.   If you have planets from 26 degrees of Aquarius to 1 degree of Pisces you will be at least substantially affected.

If you have planets from 26 degrees of Taurus to 1 degree of Gemini or 26 degrees of Scorpio to 1 degree of Sagittarius you will be at least somewhat affected.

And of course all of us will be affected by the eclipses as citizens of the world, and most especially the USA where this Total Eclipse will be seen.

World events that are warm now will be much hotter during the actual Eclipse Season, which will begin around the Leo New Moon on July 23.

For now find what nurtures you and helps you to feel safe and loved.  Gather yourself and solidify what is important to you.

It is Sun in Cancer time of year when nature is abundant and the needs for nurturance and unconditional love are at their highest.   What signifies home and family to you needs to be experienced before Eclipse Season begins.

The most vulnerable in our world will need the most care now: our children, our elderly, our wounded, our innocent animals.

This week begins rather intensely as Mars opposes Pluto on Sunday July 2.  Be careful to not emotionally overreact reacting to situations and people.

Also this week, as the Moon gets brighter and brighter on its way to a full moon, Venus will move from Taurus to Gemini on the 4th of July, and will stay in Gemini until July 31.

As Venus moves out of Taurus and into Gemini, it leaves its priority being for physical comfort and care, and for monetary and relationship security.

Its new priority becomes being social and gaining intellectual stimulation, being light and free spirited, and open to being a social butterfly.

On July 5 Mercury leaves Cancer and enters Leo, where it will stay until July 25.

When in Cancer, Mercury’s mental tendencies are to combine its head with its feelings, and sometimes to be confused between thinking and feeling.

As Mercury, the planet of  thinking and communicating, shifts into Leo,  fun creative thinking and openly sharing of ideas become greater priorities.

And at the end of this week,  there is a Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn on July 8 overnight into July 9 at 12:07 AM EDT.

Nurturance and inner values (Cancer) are needing to be balanced with needs for accomplishment and outer validation of one’s efforts (Capricorn).

Balance is also needed between permissive unconditional allowing attitudes (Cancer), with strict guidelines and rules and clear boundaries (Capricorn).

The actual Full Moon has Pluto conjunct the Moon in Capricorn which increases the emotional intensity and opens things up to transformation through catharsis.

Full Moon have an energetic effect a day or two before full moon, on the date of the full moon and up to two days after.  This Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn can also bring up parental issues and can make clear what iis needed for greater stability in one’s life.

The next full moon will be on August 7, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.

Time now to nurture and stabilize before the intensity increases in Eclipse Season.

Till next week,

Leo

Opening Up for Change and Astrology Forecast June 25- July 1.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on June 24, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in the last few weeks before Eclipse Season begins at the New Moon in Leo on July 23.

The first eclipse will not be until the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius on August 7,  but the Leo New Moon in late July will show us the first winds blowing in for the stormy Eclipse Season.

In fact the Leo New Moon in late July will be the first of two Leo New Moons in a row, a relatively rare occurence.

The first Leo New Moon on July 23 is at 1 degree of Leo.  The second Leo New Moon on August 21 is at 29 degrees of Leo.

But more importantly that second Leo New Moon on August 21 will also be a Total Solar Eclipse in Leo.  That Total Solar Eclipse New Moon will be travelling and seen across the USA on a diagonal line from Oregon to South Carolina.

It will be the first Total Solar Eclipse to travel across the USA since June 8 1918. It was then in Gemini.

World War I and the Russian Revolution were in full force then, though the World War would end in November that year.

On the actual date of June 8, 1918 at the Total Solar Eclipse in Gemini, Nova Aquila was discovered. A Nova is a sudden eruption of a bright new star.  This was the brightest nova since 1604 when Kepler’s Nova erupted.

Interestingly this nova became a rare “recurrent nova” as it erupted again in 1941 and 2000.  

1941 was the beginning of World War II for the USA.  2000 was the year George Bush was elected president.  George Bush was president for the 9-11 Twin Towers terrorist attack in 2001 and the beginning of the War in Iraq in 2003, both monumental events.

Most novas occur at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy in late Sagittarius.   Saturn will be at the center of the Galaxy in November of this year.

Yet it is not likely, though it could happen, that a major event will happen exactly on August 21 at the Total Solar Eclipse.

More likely is that August will be a turning point for our world in many ways, and major events could occur in July, August, September, or even beyond that are related to the Total Solar Eclipse.

Stay alert for the signs that will show us what the major turning point will be about- in the world and in our personal lives.

This Total Solar Eclipse very closely aspects USA natal chart (its Moon in Aquarius); Donald Trump’s chart (his Mars and Ascendant); and also the natal charts of Syria and North Korea.  We will talk more about all of this as we get closer to the actual Eclipse event.

This turning point should show us the likelihood of a major war, or instead the diffusing of intensity toward a major war.  It may also show us the direction of our American and world stock markets and economy.

In personal lives, the New Chapter of your life will get a clearing of what is blocking its way,  and a clearer direction of where you are going.

So now we are just beginning the Cancer lunar cycle, which began at the Cancer New Moon on Friday June 23.  This lunar cycle ends on July 23 at the Leo New Moon, which will open up the Eclipse Season.

There will be increasing intensity after that, with a concentration of intensity on August 7 at the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius, then again at the aforementioned Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21.

This week we continue with a growing or waxing Moon, one that will reach fullness on July 8/9 at a Capricorn Full Moon.

Planetarily speaking this week is a mild week, though your transformational journey could still bring you challenges.

That is because we are all being prompted to keep releasing old tapes, old patterns, and old programming that have kept us stuck.   That process will increase exponentially during Eclipse Season, but transformation is accelerating all year long.

As we release these old ways, we open ourselves to brighter light and more loving people and situations.

Of course releasing old ways can also mean leaving jobs or relationships or places we live;  but no matter what,  we need to release that which clogs our consciousness and chakras and stops energy from freely moving through our bodies, minds, and souls.

You will know when it is time to release.   You will know in your body and soul.  You will know by the fact that the same situations keep coming up over and over again.

You will know by seeing old relationship patterns keep recycling in your life.  You will know by seeing you are bored or frustrated with living an inauthentic life or by waiting so long to make change.

We cannot stop the movement of change and transformation in our lives now, yet we are the co-creators of how that change will manifest.

If you see what is happening in your life as meaningful, and not a victimization; then you will have the positive energy and will to transform old unhealthy patterns into new thoughts and ways that will bring better energies, people and situations into your life, and help you to lead a more authentic, satisfying and fulfilled life.

Till next week,

Leo

Goddess Be and Astrology Forecast June 18-24.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on June 17, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week, as we leave the fast paced mentally active Gemini energies for the more contained energies of nurturance in Cancer.

On Tuesday/Wednesday the 20th/21st there is the important yearly transition from spring to summer at the Summer Solstice.  This event happens overnight on June 21 at 12:24 AM EDT.   On Friday June 23 at 10:31 PM EDT, the Cancer theme continues when the Moon meets the Sun for a New Moon in Cancer.

At the Summer Solstice, Light minutes of the day are at their greatest in relation to Dark minutes of the day.  But starting then, dark minutes begin to grow while light minutes begin to wane. Then at Autumn Equinox light and dark are equal, just as they are at Spring Equinox.

Summer Solstice is symbolically similar to high noon of a day.  Winter Solstice is like midnight time of day.    Spring Equinox is like dawn and Autumn Equinox is like sunset.

So now the Sun is at its zenith in the northern hemisphere, as heat has been growing as well as light.

Usually at this time of year events in the world have heated up also, and this year should not be any different.

And in August, with two major eclipses, including most importantly a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 21, which will travel across the USA, issues and events will then be on fire.

So for now feel the shift to summer, and to the Sun going into Cancer, which it does every year at Summer Solstice.

The sign Cancer feels right when following what feels natural at the time, and following where one’s feelings take one.

At Cancer time of year Nature is at its most abundant, and there can be a strong feeling of being taken care of by Mother Nature.

And Cancer is an archetype of Mother, whether that be personal Mother or a more Universal Mother Goddess. The Moon is the ruling “planet” of Cancer.

With the Cancer Mother, one wants to feel safe and sound, nurtured and cared for, seen and appreciated.

So many people did not get that experience from their personal Mother or Father (who can also represent that Cancer nurturer archetype).

Ou world has gotten so far away from what is natural and right, and from what the Feminine truly represents, which is why finding true Motherly care can be so difficult.

Certainly in the USA, the programming is to accomplish and be successful out in the world, often at the expense of the inner world and inner values.  One is expected to Do, not just Be, which is what the sign Cancer represents.

When the Mother is taking care of a baby, she is loving it for just who it is, for just being itself.  This is Cancer love, as is making this baby feel safe, nurtured and nourished.

To love someone unconditionally is Cancer at its best.  To hover over, to not respect others’ boundaries, and to emote without control, is Cancer at its worst.

Cancer can also tend toward permisssiveness, in contrast to its opposite sign Capricorn, which tends toward strictness and firm rules.

So now at Cancer time of year, at the Summer Solstice and New Moon in Cancer, we  will be most aligned if we can just Be; if we can do things that nurture us; if we can allow ourselves to follow our instincts and feelings more than our minds.

Cancer also represents family, both our birth family and the grown up family we develop when we have children.

Many people are disappointed with blood family from their childhood, and do not feel appreciated by that family as they grow up.

So instead more and more people are seeking a sense of family from friends and from those who one feels seen by and appreciated.  One seeks family of those who are “birds of a feather” with them.

The Age of Aquarius brings us more and more connections that are beyond the traditional sense of family. This includes gay and lesbian families, or families with Trans members, or families with children who were conceived in ways other than male and female intercourse. Cloning and stem cell research is also very Aquarius.

These trends certainly will never preclude male and female mating prevailing, which has always been nature’s choice for all its creatures.

So in this New Age, the experience of family is transforming, and Cancer’s best application is knowing we are all family, all humans together in One great big, though often dysfunctional family.

This lunar cycle begun at the Cancer New Moon on June 23 is the last lunar cycle before Eclipse Season begins. Eclipse Season begins to blow in at the Leo New Moon on July 23, to be followed by a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on August 7 and a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 21.

So now at the New Moon in Cancer this week, it is time to get started, as at all New Moons.

It is best to get started on bringing things together, finding nurturing circumstances and people, and allowing your self to be loved and taken care of- by yourself and others. And of course it is a great time to nurture and care for others, especially  those who are vulnerable.

The Goddess is at her strongest at Cancer time of year.  It is now best to trust the Feminine forces of the Earth and Universe. Also trust your feelings, yet also trust your strength and Mother Bear protectiveness when those you love are hurting.

In the greater world Cancer time of year unfortunately often translates into a toxic family/tribal consciousness.

It becomes my family or nation or culture or religion against yours.  Do not get sucked in to the fear and hatred that comes with this Hatfield/McCoy conflictual attitude.

My way is not better or worse than anyone else’s way- no matter how it appears.   Each culture has its own ways that are right for them.  We need to find and feed the places of connection between us.

There is great danger now of  the growing splits and separations to tear us all apart and create even more inequities, abuses, and conflicts.

We are at the same time moving closer together, toward greater connection and love, more meaning and synchronicity.  We are moving into a Diversity within Unity Age of Aquarius.

Both worlds are happening simultaneously.

We can no longer straddle the fence.  It is time to choose a direction. Choose before the Eclipses in August. Begin to arrange your life in accordance with that choice.

Till next week,

Leo

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

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on June 10, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

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.

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
