This week we transition from 2017 into 2018. We begin the year with a bang as there is a Full Moon on January 1 and Uranus goes Direct on the 2nd.   And as Uranus goes Direct, there is the relatively rare occurrence of all planets in Direct motion.

Yes 2017 is ending. And what a year 2017 was for the United States and world.

It was the first year of the new Trump administration in the USA.  This of course created intense ripples all across the globe, as the USA has a great influence in the world.

The tone being set by Trump is replicated in other parts of the world, as nationalism is creating a serious counter to a growing globalism.

There is a separation, one nation from another, that is an outgrowth of nationalism

In the 1930’s nationalism created conditions that led to severe world conflicts, that led to World War II.

And now you can see again animosity building in nations who are defining their enemy lists.

Iran, North Korea, and Muslims in general are developing in the cross-hairs of the Trump USA world viewpoint.

Israel has become a staunch ally of the Trump administration, especially so as Trump declared Jerusalem the exclusive capital of Israel.

That declaration automatically erased the USA as a mediator between Israel and Palestine.  It also automatically pushed Iran and much of the Muslim world into serious opposition to the USA and Israel.

Battle lines are being drawn as the USA under Trump is wanting to eliminate regimes they cannot have influence over within their idea of world order.

Rome, so to speak, wants more power, and Caligula (Trump) desires greater dominance in the world.

You and I are already being programmed to see Iran and North Korea as enemies with monsters as their leaders (remember Iraq/Saddam and Libya/Gaddafi?).  We are being groomed to be blindly patriotic prior to the coming confrontations.

2018 intensity begins early this year.

Winter 2018 Eclipse Season begins on January 15 at the Capricorn New Moon, to be followed by  two eclipses: A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo on January 31 and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

These eclipses are directly opposite the signs and degrees of the eclipses last August, and as such will counter those energies as well as provide a continuance of what happened during that time.

North Korea, Syria, Charlottesville were in the world spotlight then. Trump’s growing influence over world affairs was becoming more and more obvious.

And this new Eclipse Season, which will end in early March, will not only bring back the issues of North Korea, the Middle East, and culture wars in the USA; it will also show us some strong backlash against the Trump administration.

Will that mean impeachment proceedings begin or begin to look more immanent?  I will look more closely at all this in a 2018 Forecast Video and a 2018 Podcast, which will hopefully begin a series of “radio shows” this new year.

2018 will show the Trump agenda growing, while at the same time there is a growing anti-Trump movement.

And many people will focus their energies on their own consciousness and belief systems, while at the same time wanting to co-create the New World and Age.

Those people will see truth more deeply beyond the programming, and will experience the connections by hooking into the powerful frequencies of Love that will be growing in our energy fields and souls. Magic, meaning, synchronicity, and the Universe’s signs and symbols will be available to those who are awakening beyond the brick walls of the old paradigm.

From that place new communities are building,  communities devoted to Age of Aquarius values.  Fear and hatred do not rule that new age. Truth and Love do.

So this week, the first week of 2018 begins with a Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer at 9:25 PM EST on New Year’s Day, combined with the energies of Uranus which changes to Direct motion on January 2. And of course all planets Direct in motion.

So there will be feelings of new beginnings, greater than the usual feeling of new year beginnings.

But I do not mean New Year alcohol inspired mania. I mean feelings of breaking out and breaking through, of liberation from what holds you back.  And for many this means true desires to be free of the old ways, old patterns, stuck lives, and old paradigm.

Use this Full Moon and especially Uranus to see outside the boxes, and to see the changes you can make this year.

This New Year’s Day Full Moon has the Sun in Capricorn opposite the Moon in Cancer.

So your accomplishment world outlook and your personal world in-look will be counter to one another.  Can you now balance your work and career with family and home?  Which one needs more of your attention now?

The one that needs more attention will create events to force you to focus on it.  But remember that Uranus is strong now too, so you can go outside the usual boxes in order to find new ways to be.

You do not need to be victim to the  old family patterns or old inner stuck thinking  or feeling.

And you can now begin to liberate your self from work or career that keeps you imprisoned in old ways. Start making plans for how you will lead a life more attuned to your authentic self and a more meaningful life.

Since this is Sun in Capricorn time of year, making a plan to make the needed changes is a good way to proceed.

Later this week, Mars in Scorpio will make conjunction with Jupiter in Scorpio.  Though exact next Saturday January 6, you may experience that very intense energy a few days  before and after the actual conjunction.

There is much passion in this conjunction, and of course passion can be used positively and negatively.  If you find passion for living your life, that is positive; but some will instead get into big eruptions of emotion.

And even then perhaps that is needed to express what you have been holding in, which will hopefully clear the air between people.  Or perhaps your passion will help you to empower your self in ways that are necessary to your growth and evolution.

And in the world, events with conflict eruptions become more likely.

In your personal life and with your emotions,  stay aware of this volatile energy below the surface.   You may then be more able to sidestep ugly blowups that will only be destructive.

So this first week of 2018 will initiate us into the new year.  If you stay aligned with your Higher Self leading your way, that will set the tone for this new year.

And yes Mercury is firmly direct now, giving us more potential clarity and less breakdowns of machinery and technology.

And with all planets now Direct, there is less need to reflect and ponder, or to make excuse for staying stuck.

till next week

Bless the World and Astrology Forecast December 24-30

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 23, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through a turning point now as we have experienced the New Moon in Sagittarius, Winter Solstice conjunct Saturn and Mercury finally going Direct.

And this was an especially difficult Mercury Retrograde for many, with many people reporting difficulties with electronics and technology, as well as challenges with cars.

Did you also experience people or memories coming back into your life?  Did you feel tempted to make big decisions? Did you feel confusion or difficulty in your thinking? Were you challenged in understanding what others communicated to you, or did others have difficulty understanding you?  Did you question what you had previously decided or what directions to take in your life?

Well now clarity will begin to form, and if you wait another week or so, you can be more sure that what you are thinking or deciding is correct.

This is a challenging time to be on the Earth in America.  We have never experienced a President like Trump.  Many are very worried about the direction the USA is taking and what its future will bring.

Trump is part of the downfall of an Empire and Superpower. It is meant to fall as did the other Superpower, the Soviet Union, in the 1990’s.

This is all a clearing of an old paradigm from an old Age.  Abuse of Power is its name, and the scandals of sexual power abuse are out in the open here in the United States.

This was part of an old cultural paradigm for relationships between men and women.  This is dying too.

Speaking of abuse of power,  are you aware of what  happened at the UN this last week?

The USA and Trump declared Jerusalem to be the Capital of Israel, effectively denying the Palestinians and Islamic World of their part of Jerusalem, as previously defined by UN resolutions.

UN members last week put out a new resolution condemning Trump’s declaration and reiterating their allegiance to East Jerusalem being the Capital of the Palestinians.

Nikki Haley, diplomatic head of the USA for the UN, threatened to remember who would vote against them in this new resolution.  She made it obvious that the USA would consider holding back money from those countries.

Nevertheless, a vast majority of nations still condemned the USA declaration of Jerusalem as only the possession of Israel, with an overwhelming vote against that USA declaration.

It is so important now for each of us to distinguish between healthy empowerment and abuse of power.

Holding power over others to take what you want from them is abuse of power.  Using power to destroy others is abuse of power.

Empowering yourself in order to stand up for yourself or stand up for what you believe in is healthy power. And that is important for us to be able to move into a new paradigm and Age of Aquarius.

In using power wisely and appropriately, we are not putting ourselves above others, but we are not putting ourselves below others either.

The Diversity within Unity paradigm needs for power to be distributed amongst people or nations.  In that regard we are moving toward a Multi Polar global community of nations, without superpowers or dominating Empires.

Equality, and inalienable rights to self determination preclude any nation from demanding how another nation lives, unless that nation directly injures other nations.

Our capitalistic democracy should not be forced on any other culture or nation. And every nation has a right to defend itself, especially against a country (USA) that has more weapons of mass destruction than anyone else and is the only one to have used them, killing thousands of other humans in Japan to end World War II.

We need to treat other countries as equals, and learn to listen and have dialogue with them.   Threatening to destroy them creates an atmosphere that promises violence and destruction.  And of course they in turn will threaten to destroy us. Old Paradigm is what needs to be destroyed.

As we move closer to 2018 this coming week, we begin to take in the reality of Saturn moving into Capricorn at the Winter Solstice.

Saturn in Capricorn conjunct the Winter Solstice Sun happened last in 1644, so it is a rare occurrence.

And it is part of the signature of the winter season we have now entered. Collectively we face events this winter that will have a great influence on the direction of our world and human family.  Saturn is the hand of time, gravity,  strict rules, clear definitions, endings, commitments, and “fated” events.

And also this winter we will experience 2 eclipses: A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on January 31, and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

That Solar Eclipse will be directly opposite the powerful Total Solar Eclipse from August 2017.

What was begun then will be taken to the next level this winter 2018 Eclipse Season.

This week Venus moves out of Sagittarius and conjuncts that Saturn in Capricorn on Monday Christmas Day.

We may experience in our relationships a deeper sense of reality or acceptance of what we cannot deny anymore. This could have an effect on family situations this holiday.

Also on Christmas Day the Moon will be in Pisces, a good sign to be able to feel Christ consciousness, an ability for empathy and compassion for others.

We also continue this week to be in the waxing half of the lunar cycle that began at the Sagittarius New Moon last week.

The waning last half begins on New Year’s Day January 1, at the Full Moon in Cancer, to be followed the next day by Uranus turning Direct.  We of course will talk more about that next week.

I will also do some forecasting about 2018 in next week’s blog. Then early in the new year I will put out a podcast and a video Forecast for 2018.

For those of you who resonate with the holidays, I hope they are meaningful and full of love.  And for those of you who do not, I also hope these days are meaningful and full of love.

Till next week,

Leo
