The Dawning and Astrology Forecast August 4-10

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 3, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Eclipse Season has ended; Mercury has gone back Direct;  we have passed through a New Moon in confident Leo last week.

So now we can begin to leave behind for awhile the intense emotional feelings,  the deep emotional processing, and the family dramas. We can now begin to think about where we are at, and what directions we want to move in.

The air is getting cleaner, so to speak, so we can see more clearly what is really going on in our lives.  We are beginning to be more certain of what direction to take, what decisions to make.  Look more closely and you will see the light of hope beginning to shine.

It is getting to be time to show up, to act, to follow our hearts toward what is right for us now.

It is certainly more true than ever, however, that the old world we live in is falling apart at the seams.

Impeachment proceedings against the president of the USA  look pretty certain now.

World economies are being more stressed as renewed tariffs against China look more certain.

Trump has left the Iran peace deal orchestrated by President Obama and is bullying other nations to keep and increase sanctions against them. This affects all the Middle East, as also does the stuckness of the relationship between occupied Palestine and occupier Israel.

The USA last week left a nuclear deal with Russia that was shaped by President Obama, so the relationship with Russia is getting worse and worse.

So we now need to get it together with our personal lives, so we are better prepared to handle what is coming our way soon. And now that the Eclipses and Mercury Retrograde have passed, we are for the most part more able to move forward with more positive energy.

Remember that this falling apart in the world is meant to be, as it helps crash an old corrupt, self centered, random and meaningless, disconnected, soul dead old world.

This week begins with an intense Mars inconjunct Pluto aspect on Sunday August 4.  This opens up the energy field for powerful weather events, world conflicts, and these all too frequent mass murders in the USA.

Remember also that Mars in Leo is moving through degrees of the zodiac that will trigger the position of the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo from August 2017.

What was happening for you that summer?  As you revisit what happened,  process and release, you can make progress in your life around those issues that came up back then.

In the greater world, look at North Korea, China, Israel, Iran, and USA for potential events.  Pakistan and India also have their natal charts triggered this month of Mars going through Leo.

Mars will be exactly triggering the 2017 Total Eclipse in Leo next week after the 11th of August.

And next week begins powerfully on Sunday the 11th as both Uranus and Jupiter change directions that day: Uranus going Retrograde and Jupiter going back Direct.  That puts the energies and meaning of those planets in the spotlight.  Uranus is liberation, revolution, and “outside the box” energies. Jupiter is expansion, upliftment, higher meaning, and resolution.

Those strong planetary turnings will open the doorway to even  more important events later that week.

That Sunday, the USA north and south nodes of the Moon are triggered, suggesting fated events may present themselves.

Also Russia and Ukraine have emphasis in their charts then. Later that week North Korea, Trump, Israel, Netanyahu, and the USA will need to be looked at for potential important events.

It is time to get real with what is happening in our world.  Those of us who experienced the ’60s and ’70s revolution and consciousness evolution see and feel many similarities between that time and now.

Just look at Trump and Nixon. Of course we are talking Impeachment, but also trash talking by both of them about other people.  Trump is more out in the open with his petty insults and hated enemies. We had to hear the infamous Nixon tapes to know about his hatreds and pettiness.

Back then there was also a culture war, as there is now. And the Nixon “silent majority” was well known for its statement of “love it or leave it” against people who protested USA involvement in the war in Viet Nam, or people who criticized the USA for its civil rights abuses at that time.

There was a big sexual revolution then also, and traditional gender identity and roles were challenged. And now LGBTQ and especially Trans movements are more powerful than ever.

People were singing and talking about the dawning of the Age of Aquarius then, and now we are closer than ever to that Age’s gateway.  People knew then, as now, that an old world needed to die so a new one could be born

New Age spiritual and astrology movements were beginning then too, and now those ideas are strong again.

What happened in the 60s and 70s opened the way for what has been revived now.

The Beatles came into people’s lives then to serve as a model for evolution of consciousness, and revolution into a new age.  The Beatles broke up in the late ’70s.

Then John Lennon was killed in December 1980,  and the lights went out for the revolution and evolution into a new age.

President Reagan was voted in a month before the Lennon killing, and we all knew what that meant.

Looking back,  that time served as a time to gain some stability, and now it is time again to rise up again and change this world.

This is not merely about a pendulum going back and forth between liberal and conservative, but more importantly is about finishing the job that was started back in the 60s/70s!

The Millennial generation shows signs it is aligned with the great changes needed in our world, as the younger generation was then.

This election is in some ways similar to 1968.  Eugene McCarthy was the hope to be president and to change the world radically.

But Hubert Humphrey was the moderate and he won the democratic primary and went on to face Richard Nixon. He lost.

Now we have moderate Joe Biden facing off against many who profess more “radical” beliefs like the Green New Deal or Universal Health Care.

So who will face Trump? Or Pence if Trump is impeached?  And will it be a moderate voice like Biden? Or does the Age of Aquarius require a more “radical” candidate like Warren, Sanders, or Gabbard?

I will be getting more serious about finding the astrological answer to that question now as we  move forward.

For now, look for important events to open up in August, events that will show us what directions our world and country are going toward.

This week and early next week have potentially very fiery planetary movements.

As I write this, I see a Mars inconjunct aspect to Pluto event just happened:  killings at a mall in El Paso.  And this is only a few days after another mass killing at a Walmart in Mississippi

Mars (god of war) and Pluto (god of the Underworld) are bringing up the shadows and s–t from the bowels of our nation.

It is time to make revolutionary changes in our country, with guns, violent video games, and ultra violent movies. This is what we are feeding our souls and the souls of our children.

It is time to transform the violent collective consciousness in our world now, and that begins with each of us.

It is time to open our minds and hearts to the peace and love of an Age of Aquarius. If that sounds corny or too dreamy to you, perhaps you have entered the non magical land of Cynical. 

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season Begins and Astrology Forecast June 16-22.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lighter and Darker and Astrology Forecast May 19-25.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

Deeper and Deeper and Astrology Forecast March 3-9.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 2, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shit has certainly hit the proverbial fan out in the world.  The old world is purging out its debris for all to see.

Trump meeting with Kim Jong Un did not go as hyped for.   Congressional hearings with Michael Cohen gave out ugly info about Trump that tears his character apart.    Pakistan and India are macho strutting around with nuclear weapons, with all humanity put in danger.

This is all coming out not long after a most intense Eclipse Season earlier this year.  Now in the waning half of the lunar cycle that has followed that Eclipse Season, we are wading through what has been not so graciously excreted into the world.

We are needing to more and more concentrate on the New World we are sensing and creating, growing out from what is being purged.

Death and Birth are constant realities here on the Earth plane.  And now we are in the midst of a huge death of a Pisces Age, over 2000 years old.

And at the same time, we are birthing a new golden Age of Aquarius, which will last 2,160 years.

Can you see what is here now as we let go the past, and let in the new? Both Dark and Light are stronger than ever.

The power of the Feminine is growing and so needed now.  I see a powerful black woman, a Sophia like entity growing stronger and stronger behind the veils of our dying world.

She is most able to deal with humanity through this death while at the same time able to mid-wife the new world into being.

And the growing Feminine is obvious now in the political world, as young and strong women of color are speaking out.  They know the need to purge old ways and build new ones that will serve more and more people in our country and world. The Dark Feminine can hold with compassion those dying souls, and open the way for Birth.

Remember, however, that those from the old world are not the enemy, though it sure feels like it sometimes.

Conservative is merely a desire to hold onto what has been before.  And some of it needs to be looked at before being abandoned.  Are late term abortions really OK? Is it really OK to let everyone into the country without rules?  I think these issues need to be examined, not put so squarely into left and right boxes.

Some conservative ways and beliefs hold onto what is needed from our past. We do not want to throw out the baby with the bath water, so to speak.

And both neo-cons (new conservatives) and neo-libs (new liberals) are wanting conflicts in Venezuela and Syria.  We need to get outside those boxes and speak loudly for no more war, no more fixing other countries into what we want them to be, and no more nukes in our world.

Time to continue together to envision our new world, transform our consciousness in its essence,  and fight for what we believe in,  not against anything or anyone.

Keep meditating and being with others who also know this new world inside.  All is inside first, as we visualize the new world as it will be.

Let the Universe (Source) into your meditations to help co-create this New Age. It is sitting in the inner planes waiting for you to connect to.

This week brings a major shift, as Mercury goes Retrograde just before the New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Tuesday March 5 at 1:19 PM EST. 

The New Moon in Pisces is on Wednesday March 6 at 11:04 AM EST.   It is especially important and influential as it is closely conjunct Neptune in Pisces and square Jupiter in Sagittarius. 

Expect there to be much confusion and potential chaos, whose purpose is to shake us out of old thinking and old habits.

This is also a potentially a very spiritual combination, one that will help us to let go into the soul world of  connections, synchronicities, signs and symbol from the Universe.

The prerequisite for these experiences is to let go of fears, stuck attitudes and beliefs, and a hatred of the “enemy”.

Sure it can be healthy and empowering to be angry at injustice, unfairness, and ignorance; but hatred toward those who perpetrate those things creates ugly self defeating energy.  Use that energy to fight for what you believe in and the world you want to create.

So Mercury Retrograde may be even more confusing or unsettling than usual, as the Pisces/Neptune effect is so strong too.

Do not push hard to get things done, get an answer, quick-fix anyone or anything,  or rush through some strict agenda.

Stay present, do not panic, do not rush to judgement.

Your mind is wanting to shift its perceptions now, and in the process may want to question your previous thinking, decisions, or promises.  Remember what is going on planetarily, and trust the process. Let this lunar cycle and Mercury Retrograde play out over the next month.

After April 5th or so, direction will be more clear and passages forward will open up.

Use this coming month to go deeper in consciousness, to get more clarity from signs in dreams and waking dreams.

Use the Pisces vibe to gain empathy for others, to better understand your partners, lovers, family members, friends, and especially so-called enemies.

Pisces teaches us that all is connected in unity, at a soul level of being. And it is the soul level of being that infuses us all with energy for connection with one another.

Do not live in a Pisces “dream world” of being naïve, however.  Be discriminating about what energy from others you are taking into your heart and soul.

You do not need to judge anyone it is true, but it is also important not to let in what will hurt you or disempower you. Some people can be so wounded, desperate, and ill on a soul level.  Yes have empathy, but do not stay with them too long. This goes for family and romantic partners too.

Especially now it is important to be as “clean” as possible, and to release old wounds and traumas in the process.

Neptune is the most influential planetary energy now, and it is a great healing energy. It helps dissolve old ways and attitudes, bring forgiveness, helps heal old wounds between people.

Surrender more this week to the Soul and Spirit realm, let go of left brain logic,  which will not work as well as usual.

Expect people from your past to resurface now in dreams and real life.

This next month is not good for big decisions, starting big projects, pushing for answers, pushing for anything.

Up ahead is Spring Equinox on March 20, Mercury Direct on March 28, and New Moon in Aries on April 5.  Before then we are processing, using imagination and intuition, facing ghosts of our past, and doing deep healing.

Till next week,

with Truth and Love,

Leo

New Moon in Aquarius and Astrology Forecast February 3-9

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on February 2, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast, we are still in Eclipse Season.   That ends at the New Moon in Aquarius on Monday February 4 at 4:04 PM EST.

But now as I write, I can certainly feel the soul of the darkening Moon.

We have been through a very powerful and challenging Eclipse Season; and now as we grieve for what we are letting go of,  we may also be unsure what is ahead of us now.

If you are having difficulty making decisions, or choosing the right path, or even knowing what direction to move toward, you have much company in our human family.

What is going on in the greater world is also quite confusing for many.  World events have been showing us that what used to be considered normal, is very elusive and difficult to grab onto anymore.

That “old normal” is leaving us, and that alone can get us feeling insecurities, sadness, and grief for a time period that is beginning to disappear in our life’s rear view mirror.

The Trump era is breaking down old reliable institutions, old ways of relating to other nations and cultures, and old agreements (like on Climate Change,  and nuclear weapon production ).

The stock market has become quite volatile and unpredictable.  The USA government is now in long term shutdown.  An old and important agreement with Iran has been discarded. We are apparently pulling out of old military stances in Syria and Afghanistan. The Presidential administration is in chaos and run by an obviously narcissistic and unpredictable President.

Our relationships with China and Russia are quite arguably worse than they have been recently.  Mass murders seem to happen much more than before.  The Arab and Muslim worlds are growing farther and farther apart from Western nations.

Fear is all around our collective energy fields, ready to be absorbed by anyone who wants to partake.

Yes we can be quite confused on what to do and where to go in our personal lives too, as they are a microcosm to the macrocosm or our greater world.

The Universe is getting us all prepared for our new world and its challenges, by helping us to release old patterns, old belief systems, old habits, old relationships or jobs that no longer resonate with our true and authentic self.

Our changing consciousness is the most important of all. Old programming and conditioning by culture, religion, family and corporate state, from days gone by, do not serve us now.

And planetary events, like at this last Eclipse Season, mean to speed up the process of growth and help us to transform our minds and hearts into the energies and intents of the Age of Aquarius.

But now right after the eclipses there is some unbalance, confusion, and fear to deal with. Many feel held back from jumping in. But a turning point nudges us forward this week.

The New Moon in Aquarius on the 4th of February is a boost forward for our lives.  

It would be good in the two or three days surrounding that new moon, to meditate and make strong intentions, in relationship with the Universe.

We may not know exactly where we are going, but we can trust the process, trust ourselves, and trust the Universe now.  We can do this for our personal lives, but also for the world now.

I do not believe we can avoid some really difficult days ahead in America and western civilization.  The Military/Industrial (economic) Complex that President Eisenhower warned would endanger our democracy, is making a prophet out of that President.

And so the Military and Economy will need to humble “themselves”,  be transformed, and lose Empire status.

Major conflict and major economic challenges are ahead, as is more culture war between differing American cultures, as happened in the Civil War 1860-1865.

The Middle East is a tinder box now, close to exploding.

Important planetary movements to the planets in the natal charts of the USA and Israel will trigger big events in those countries soon

In the USA natal chart , Pluto in Capricorn in its second house will see many powerful triggers to it over the next few years.

Pluto will experience its first ever Pluto Return in 2021-2022, while at almost the same time both Saturn and Jupiter will be making conjunction with that same natal USA Pluto.

The USA Pluto in its second house is representative of the Military/Industrial complex.

Uranus has been squaring the USA Pluto in 2017, 2018, 2019. Pluto returns to itself in 2021/22.  Jupiter and Saturn conjunct it in 2020-21.

So you can see how powerfully this will be- a big overhaul of the system, and a downgrade of the Empire.

And this is all part of the opening of a portal into the Age of Aquarius.

Add Jupiter conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius in December 2020, and we have the ingredients that will help us put our toes into the Age of Aquarius. That does not mean all will be perfectly Aquarian Age then, not at all.

But nevertheless, whatever darkness surrounds us then will have huge beams of light penetrating that darkness and lighting our way forward on the New Age Path.

This week has the Aquarius New Moon on February 4. That will get our mojo beginning to purr.

Then the themes of Aquarius will follow, so we will be “persuaded” to leave our heart’s desires to be seen as special and popular, and instead be pulled more toward our head’s intention to stay with idealistic notions of diverse but equal in value.  Making contribution to community or favorite group or organization may be “in the cards” for some of us.

Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius. It was discovered in 1781, around the time of two revolutions: USA and France.

These revolutions were motivated by desires to replace royalty with democracy and power to the people.

Uranus/Aquarius highly values individual freedom and liberation from that which chains us.

It is the anti-ego sign, seeing all as equals and seeing strength in community and groups.

Even though it is anti-ego, it highly values distinct individuality and uniqueness.

Aquarius also highly values social consciousness, and is very sensitive to culture and group thinking and action.

If a Leo and Aquarius both went shopping for a car, the Leo would tend to want the shiny car that made its heart sing and be a popular model.

Aquarius would want the car that got good mileage and was good for the environment and was from a dealership that was a co-op in community.

After this Aquarius New Moon, the lights go back on again and we strive to move forward, even if we do not totally know where we are going.

And with so many not feeling secure in the changing winds swirling all around, the message is to let go of needs to have absolute answers and direction.

There are coming events that will need to show up before we know what to do and where to go.

The New Moon in Aquarius will open the gates for events that are resulting from what shook up during Eclipse Season.

Be on your toes for change, as it is coming whether we are perfectly “in shape” for it or not.

Winter Solstice 2018 and Full Moon in Cancer and Astrology Forecast December 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on December 15, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we experience one of the four annual turning points into a new season: Winter Solstice.

Winter Solstice 2018 is December 21 at 5:23 PM EST.

Dark minutes of the day are at their greatest on Winter Solstice; then right afterwards light minutes begin to gain in strength.  It is not mere coincidence that the Christian religion has put Christmas close to this annual turning point.

The chosen day for Christ’s birth, which can be seen as the light of hope being birthed for humanity, fits so well with Winter Solstice.

At Winter Solstice dark, yin, inward energies are at their greatest.   There is a pull to honor contemplation, inner reflection, sadness, darker feelings, and compassion for those who suffer.

But in this darkness a light is born, hope is seen at the end of the tunnel of our despair.  Spring, the next season, is of course nature’s breath of fresh air and renewed light and hope.

Every year as we get closer and closer to the depths of Winter Solstice, it may seem somewhat of a contradiction that the Sun has been in uplifted, inspirational Sagittarius.

Sagittarius is the fire that keeps burning with faith as the days get darker in the Northern Hemisphere.

And this year Jupiter is also in Sagittarius as we enter Winter Solstice. This adds a feeling of expanding joy and upliftment even as dark days get darker.

The holiday season is part of the Sagittarius joy and upliftment, and many use this holiday spirit to distract them from deeper feelings.

Holding both Sagittarius joy and Winter Solstice sadness will test us this week.

Some get very depressed at the holidays, and these darker days contribute to these feelings.

Some people get rather manic with holiday preparation and anticipation.

Both are extremes at this time of year. To hold the joy and happiness while also holding a feeling of sadness, nostalgia, or connection with the “down” feelings of life is the best one can do at this time.

Right on the Winter Solstice of December 21, the Sun every year moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn.

Capricorn is “ruled”  by the planet Saturn, and Saturn is gravity which obviously is a pull downward.

But it is basically not a pull down into feelings;  instead it is a pull down into facing what one needs to do, what obligations need to be met, what responsibilities need to be tended, what accomplishments need to be met, what goals need to be set.

Capricorn is about organizing, discipline, boundary setting, limits, time constraints, rules and regulations.

Its goals are building, especially building success, outer world recognition and respect, and career advancement.

Interestingly this year, the day after the Winter Solstice passage of Sun into Capricorn brings us into a Full Moon in Cancer.

Since Full Moons always have the Sun exactly opposite the Moon, this Full Moon has the Sun at one degree of Capricorn and the Moon at 1 degree of Cancer.

The Full Moon is on December 22 at 12:49 PM EST.

So the recently entered Sun in Capricorn meets the Moon in Cancer in opposition.

And the ruling “planet” of Cancer is the Moon. So the Moon swoons in Cancer, making it stronger than ever.

In many ways this Full Moon shows us a traditional Father archetype(Capricorn) versus a traditional Mother archetype (Cancer).

This Cancer Mother is more unconditional, without strict boundaries or rules. It is rather permissive, nurturing and emotionally safe. It also can hover over in its protectiveness, and resist boundaries between Mom and child, all blurring together.

The Capricorn Father is rather stern and a task master, expecting one to take responsibility for oneself, and to follow a strict regimen of discipline and accomplishment.

I am sure you can see how these archetypes can translate into politically conservative (Capricorn) and liberal (Cancer).

And we all know how polarized these parties are from one another now in America.

So watch this all play out in the world now between Democrats and Republicans, potentially stretching the budget or taking the government down.

And the stock market and economy are in trouble now too.

And since we are now in a new Eclipse Season, with the first actual eclipse on January 5, 2019; these government and economic issues will be intensified and likely in crisis mode.

But remember that the light of hope from the turning of the Winter Solstice will be shining, promising a new day, a new age coming.

Jupiter in Sagittarius, which will continue into December 2019, brings expansion into more progressive causes, more inspiration, broader perspectives and higher meaning.

As you watch the old world crumble in the hands of the Trump administration and Washington DC Corporate Establishment, keep your eye on what is being born at the same time.

Just as in the transformation of a personal life, old beliefs and old ways of living die.  And sometimes that happens with the breakup of a relationship, a death, the ending of a job or career, a deep realization of what no longer holds our heart, feelings of despair and even dark nights of the soul.

And through it all there are new beginnings, renewed inspiration, a new sense of purpose, better relationships, a sense of more love in one’s life, and a feeling of being more true to the true nature of who you are.

There is the feeling of being part of a global community of people who are creating a new and better world.

As we move deeper and more intensely into the challenging transition into an Age of Aquarius,  keep your focus on the bigger picture.

Know all is happening meaningfully, and that the death of an old era and age can be quite difficult at times.

Release the old ways and old beliefs inside your self, which makes space for new light and love to enter your heart, soul, body, and mind.

That light and love will help you create the life that is best for you, in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Breaking the Chains and Astrology Forecast November 11-17.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo
