Navigating Eclipses and Retrogrades and Astrology Forecast July 29- August 5

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we passed through the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon last week, we entered the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.

This has been for many people a very difficult last few weeks.  Besides the two eclipses, we have also experienced Mars and Mercury both going Retrograde.

This is a time of inner reflection, of dealing with inner demons and old patterns and stories that are needing to be addressed, resolved, and/or released.

It has been, and continues to be, a ripe time to revisit these old stories, and in the process to find breakthroughs to new ways of seeing those old patterns or stories.

And those breakthroughs can show us to positive transformation for the betterment of our souls and lives.

Nevertheless, being brought back to old stories can seduce us into making decisions or moves that are not appropriate to the current situation.

It is best, in most cases, to hold back from making big decisions or starting new ventures.  It is not the time to act, but instead a time to internally work through the issues.

Many have, through the intensity of these eclipses, experienced these big breakthroughs; but it is more than just eclipses in themselves that have been triggering these transformational times.

The strength of Pluto and Uranus within the last two eclipse formations has provided more power of transformation and awakenings.

So even through the intense difficulties many have experienced these last few week,  in the bigger picture it is all part of deep transformation and change necessary for our growth and evolution.

The Age of Aquarius is calling us all to transform our consciousness, beliefs, and ways in order to be aligned with this New Age.

The only “enemy” in this process is our fear. It is natural to have fear, but it is not good to give in to fear as our master.

Fear takes many forms, but at the core fear takes over when we no longer trust we live in a meaningful Universe that brings us situations that here for a reason.

Do we ultimately follow Love and Truth or Fear?

It is true that even the most spiritual of us have dark nights of the soul when we feel “spirit” has abandoned us or we have abandoned “spirit”.

But in time we have awakenings or “rebirths” that bring us back on our spiritual paths.

It is so easy now to fall victim to fear, as our world seems to be falling apart from our better values.

This falling apart, which will get more intense, is part of the process of transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

I know many of you have experienced a falling apart of your personal lives before, and know that was just part of the process of transformation into a life more aligned with who you really are and are growing into.

And our world and country are going through that now. The big split between cultures in America, which resembles the Civil War in essence, is part of this transformational process that will ultimately make us more whole in alignment with a New Age.

And ending the notion of being superior to other cultures or countries is part of that transformation, as there is no room for superpower countries in the Age of Aquarius..

Empires began at the beginning of the Age of Pisces, in the form of the Roman Empire.  Now for the Age of Aquarius, we are letting go of the world controlling Empires.

Diversity within Unity requires the world to transform into one of more equality between nations and cultures.

The USA Empire of its Military/Economic Complex is dissolving and will hopefully in the process come back to its better values and principles.

And it is thus easy to see how the Trump influence is actually helping the process of the Empire’s downfall. Yes there will still be mammoth attempts to keep the power going, and some of that will likely be quite oppressive to our liberties.

And during this process of American transformation, the impeachment of President Trump is intensifying and becoming more serious.  What Trump does to distract this process is of great concern.

But keep the faith that in the bigger picture all is aligned with the cycles of the Universe..

In the greater world the Middle East is on the verge of igniting into greater conflict.  Gaza was erupting last week, Syria was intensifying, and Iran is now squarely in the cross-hairs of USA and Israel sights.

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius fell right on Israel’s natal Moon in Leo.  Mars was in opposition to that Natal Moon. The signs point to that Lunar Eclipse as an important turning point for Israel.

And transformation of Israel, Palestine and the greater Middle East is important to the transformation of our world into the Age of Aquarius.

Many of the first known civilizations and world wide religions were birthed in the Middle East.  So it is understood why that area of the world is needing of transformation out of old paradigms that run much of the world. The way Israel oppresses the Palestinians is so common to the old age.  And of course Israel was often at the other end of these abuses of power.

As we stated earlier, we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12. And Mars and Mercury are still retrograde.

Now we await the third and last eclipse of Summer Eclipse Season 2018:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11.

Though at that time Mercury will still be retrograde until August 18/19 and Mars will still be retrograde until August 27, there still will be much push for new beginnings at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in fiery Leo.

The big dominating egos on the world stage will be emerging.  Matches will tend to be lit by them, creating world conflict.

In our personal lives however, it is more likely that this Leo Solar Eclipse will ignite creative passions and open hearts.

It will signify a time of new starts and action taken in this New Chapter of your life.

Of course the actual actions may wait in many instances until Mercury and Mars have settled into their Direct positions.

So there is still much time now to go within your psyche and soul, to find out what you really want (Mars) and what you really think (Mercury).

And that Mars in Retrograde will be triggered this week as it squares Uranus, which is slowing down to go Direct next week.  That means there may be a turning point in your quest to know what you want and where you want to go.  But do your best not to run with it, as Mars will still be Retrograde.

Keep in mind during all the intensity and sometime confusion this Eclipse Season, that your soul is searching for its heart’s desires and your mind’s right thinking to help lead the way forward for your life.

That is being worked out now, sometimes unbeknownst to you at a deep level.  But  know that it is and patiently wait till those planets go Direct and the Eclipse Season ends.

After that much will settle in, and you will be in a better position to know what you truly want ( aligned with your higher self) and where you are going.

Till next week,

Leo

Total Lunar Eclipse, Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast July 22-28

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 21, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Powerful tides are shifting this week as there will be another Eclipse as Mercury goes Retrograde.

On Thursday July 26 at 1:02 AM EDT Mercury goes Retrograde. It will stay Retrograde until August 19- when it goes back Direct.

The eclipse this week is on Friday July 27 at 4:20 PM EDT. It is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius.

So energies will be in flux this week, and as a result we will be shifting our thinking and our energy bodies.

Mercury goes Retrograde in Leo, so our way of thinking creatively is shifting.  As with all Mercury Retrograde time periods, we will be changing our perceptions and our ways of communicating.

This changing is often felt rather subtly, but nevertheless people often rethink or question what they have previously decided. And if that happens with you, it is best to wait until Mercury goes back direct before deciding to act on what you have been questioning. And of course waiting a week after it has gone back Direct is the best strategy for making important decisions.

During Mercury Retrograde it is best to not rely too much on linear thinking.  It is usually best to process and reflect, imagine and think inventively.

People from the past often come back into our hearts and minds through our dreams, our waking memories, or actually in the flesh during Mercury Retrograde.

Their re-appearance is meant to help us better understand current situations, especially relationship issues.

So Mercury Retrograde is beginning just before the Lunar Eclipse this week.  And the first couple of days of Mercury Retrograde are often more confusing and disorienting.  

And happening so close to the Lunar Eclipse, which brings increased intensity and disturbance, we may experience events that may seem hard to understand or control.

Like the last Eclipse on July 12, this one is also more powerful than usual. The one on July 12 was closely in opposition to god of the underworld Pluto.

This one on the 27th has Mars closely conjunct the Moon in Aquarius, and Uranus square the Moon in Aquarius and Sun in Leo. That makes an important Fixed T-square formation, one that pulls us in 3 different directions.

The Sun in Leo expresses creative shining and sees itself as the center of attention; the Moon in Aquarius expresses group needs, social needs, and social consciousness.  Mars conjunct that Moon in Aquarius adds much force for the needs of the group or community.  And Uranus in Taurus seeks to break down the usual way of being,  the more conventional approach.

The current teaming up this week for socialism in health plans expressed by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez is representative of what the Uranian and Aquarius ways are all about.

The Sun in Leo represents the executive or presidential controls.

So in your own life it is time to break outside your usual boxes of thinking and being.  You may have only seen a couple of options for solving certain issues in your life. Now you can be awakened to see options you never thought of before.

If you were born in late April, late July, late October, or late January you may be greatly affected by this Eclipse.  If you have any natal planets in early Taurus, early Leo, early Scorpio or early Aquarius you may be greatly affected by this Eclipse.

This eclipse is meant to shake us out of same-old, same-old, same-old thinking or ways of being. It can assist us in letting go of that which does not serve us. It can bring in awakening energies that break us out of old boxes and provide breakthroughs in our consciousness and lives.

This is a transformational time period, one that accelerates our progress and evolution.

It may also feel painful for many, especially those who have been holding on tightly to what needs too be released.

The fixed signs are mostly affected by this eclipse, and those are the signs that tend to hold on and not let go the most.

Aquarius tends to hold onto certain ways of thinking, set ways of being socially conscious.

Scorpio holds onto feelings from the past, especially hurts and resentments.

Leo tends to hold onto a very set ego and way of seeing oneself.

Taurus holds onto many things, especially possessions or that which it claims as its own.

It is time to let go more, and know that the Universe is at our backs and has our backs for transformation.

In the greater world you can see how the USA appears to be falling apart. There are great cultural divisions now, ones that are breaking up relationships and families.  Red and blue state divisions are stronger than ever. Trumpites and non Trumpites are fiercely against one another.

The fiasco last week with Putin and Trump is indicative of how out of balance the USA has become under Trump.

Those wanting to bring down the Trump presidency are feeling more confident they can do it now.  Those attempts will get stronger and stronger now, further breaking down the stability of the nation. It is likely that before too long the increasing chaos for change will be met with more militaristic attempts at control.

Israel is now in the spotlight of Eclipse Season.  It has been severely bombing the Gaza Strip Palestinians, and Palestinian Hamas has been fighting Israel.  Iran and Syria are also potential fighting zones now for Israel.  The Middle East region is ripe for major conflict soon. Russia and the USA presence there makes it all more dangerous.

Remember that the Military Industrial Complex will be threatened over the next few years, especially so when transiting Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn will make conjunction with the USA Natal Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house (a symbol of the Military/Industrial complex). This will happen in the early 2020’s.

The Age of Aquarius is busting at the seams of our old age structures.  It seeks to bring to our consciousness the new waves of love and truth appropriate to this New Age.

And now during Eclipse Season these new energies are stronger than usual. As you clear out the baggage that is distorting  your authentic soul self, your inner vessels of receptivity are opened to receive these divine energies from the Age of Aquarius.

There is revolution and evolution roaring in our world now and deep in our souls.  Be with the change. Be with the Love. Be with the Truth.

Do not be frightened by the power displays of the System.  Compared to the vastness and power of the Universe, it is just castles in the sand.

Take a look at this video about Summer Eclipse Season 2018 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QkSNDn0QCg&feature=youtu.be.

There will be a new one in early August.

Till next week

Leo

Superior/Inferior Disillusion, and Astrology Forecast May 20-26.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on May 19, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week gave us the Taurus New Moon combined with a strong lineup of Uranus aspects.

It is time to move further forward in a more Taurus practical and solid manner; but we have also just had some wake-up calls that are meant to push us out of limitations, stuck-ness, and the slumber of status quo.

Last week North Korea showed signs it would not just comply with USA demands, on the way to a planned summit in June.  Last week we let you know that the date picked for that summit is a date when the USA militant natal Mars will be triggered.  It did not make sense last week, but after the North Korean complaints it does now.

Also last week just after the Mars/Uranus square there was another mass murder at a school, the 22nd such event this year 2018.

And not long after, there was a royal wedding in Great Britain.  Do you see the connection?

On one side of the same coin, the fantasy wedding that separates privileged “special” people from the rest of humanity was performed.

On the other side of the coin, the dark shadow side, a young man who was supposedly often bullied, goes on a murderous rampage.

Each side of the coin creates the equally distorted other side of the coin. Brutality motivates people to escape into fantasies of a perfect life.

And the separation caused by superiors pushing down others into inferior lives, creates a dark side of people who feel they are “less than”.

High School has always been a time when some kids are made to feel popular and “better than” , while others are often humiliated and made to feel inferior.

So it is time for all of us to realize no one, or no group of people is intrinsically any better or worse in the eyes of the Universe than anyone else.

This desire to be superior to others causes all sorts of separation and conflict in the world. My religion is superior to yours.  My country is superior to yours (Make America Great Again). My race or gender or sexual orientation is superior to yours.  The money and privilege I have makes me superior to you.  My family is better than yours.  I am better than you.

This human ego story is quite arguably at the root of so much suffering in this world, so many wars, so much poverty.

The Age of Aquarius is about equality and Diversity within Unity, and that is the antidote to all this separation caused by  the paradigm of superior and inferior.

And this last week was meant to wake us up to the need to change the stories that are causing our decay and destruction.

But this decay and destruction is not the end of the world, yet it is meant to be the end of the world as we have known it.

And each of us in our individual lives is also going through this ending of an Old Chapter of our lives, so we can be born into a new more evolved Chapter.

I see this in couples I work with who can no longer continue the relationship the same way it has always been.  I see this in people who no longer can live their lives without a renewed sense of purpose. I see this in people who are experiencing a very “dark night of the soul”, not knowing if there is a new Chapter waiting for them after the death of the old one.

I see this in people who are in such despair when looking at the condition of our current world, not believing something better is on the way.

Our personal lives and our collective life is in transition between worlds and ages, and that transformational process has now taken us to the edge, to the place of reckoning.

We need to let die what is ready to die, and often that is a part of us that carries old stories, old beliefs, and an old paradigm for how to live as a human on this Earth.

As we are awakened more and more, we see more clearly how we have been programmed to believe what we are “supposed to believe”.

And that awakened knowledge can be very disconcerting at first, and can have effect on all of our life, our relationships, jobs, families, spiritual perspectives, politics, and how we raise our children.

Then after we are awakened, we often look back and judge ourselves and how we have treated others. That judgmental attitude can be very debilitating and counterproductive.

We can only know what is best to do after we have been awakened, and then we need to develop an attitude of learning from our mistakes, not beating ourselves up for not being perfect.

There are more and more of us being awakened every day, and we need to help each other to stay on this new course.  And as our consciousness expands, the Universe helps us by showing us more synchronicities and more and more evidence that all is connected.

This week

And now as we have entered a Taurus lunar cycle since the Taurus New Moon last week, you can make more solid and permanent, your chosen life path. You can now build stronger boundaries to keep protected the sovereign being you are becoming.

You do not need to give yourself away or to become what others want you to be. You do not need to fix anyone else, or to be sure you are doing your life as you “are supposed to”.

You can now more firmly stay on your path with integrity.

On Sunday the 20th the Sun begins its annual dance into Gemini for the next month. Time to shift energy more up to the crown chakra, and to get more into intellectual movements, into wanting to learn more, communicate better, and be more social.

On the 25th Jupiter in Scorpio makes trine to Neptune in Pisces, opening you more to the mystery of life, more to surrendering to a bigger picture.

On the 26th Venus opposes Saturn, bringing us to more focus on relationship and a stronger sense of either relationship endings or commitments.

Next week is the Full Moon in Sagittarius, but for this week we are in the growth pattern of the waxing half of the lunar cycle.

Till next week

Leo

Wesak and Beltane and Astrology Forecast April 29- May 5

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 28, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Early this week there is a sacred yearly full moon, the Wesak Full Moon.

Every springtime it happens with the Moon in Scorpio and Sun directly opposite in Taurus.  This year it is on April 29 at 8:58 PM EDT.

People celebrate this Wesak Full Moon as Buddha’s birthday. He was said to be born on the Wesak Full Moon.

And lore has it that on the same day in a different year Buddha found enlightenment. Then on that same day again in a different year Buddha faced his death.

So you can see why so many, especially Buddhists, treat the Wesak Full Moon as a holy day.

In planetary terms this Wesak Full Moon is always a Scorpio Full Moon, so with the Sun in Taurus directly opposite the Moon in Scorpio there is a tension between calm solidity (Taurus) and intense passion (Scorpio).

Taurus and Scorpio are both “fixed” signs. Taurus is fixed Earth (body) and Scorpio is fixed water (soul).

They both can be quite stubborn.   Taurus tends to hold onto what it has possessed and Scorpio holds onto feelings, especially feelings that have resulted from having been hurt by someone.

Taurus avoids intense emotional expressions which Scorpio often shows; and Scorpio does not like the often passionless Taurus behavior.

But when in balance they are great compliments to one another:  Taurus calms and grounds the intensity of Scorpio, and Scorpio brings some spiciness and passion to Taurus.

Since they are both fixed signs, there can sometimes be a tug of war between them, with neither giving up.

A couple days after the Wesak Full Moon, there is annual Beltane. It is on May 1st and it is the mid point between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice.

At  that midpoint, there are often feelings of optimism, as nature is turning away from Spring and toward Summer.

Beltane is considered a day of fertility, and people have traditionally moved around a maypole, signifying the dance between male and female energies.

So use this week, with Beltane and Wesak, to celebrate this beautiful time of year in the Northern Hemisphere, when nature is beginning to show its beauty.

Meditate, enjoy nature and body pleasures this week. This break is sorely needed for all of us, as there has been so much changing, shifting, and transforming.

The Scorpio Full Moon may be rather intense, especially following the Mars/Pluto conjunction late last week.  But soon after the Full Moon, the emotional climate should begin to shift from primal intensity toward more upliftment, as The Moon will be in Sagittarius most of Beltane and continuing into the 2nd and 3rd of May.

Out in the greater world, North and South Korea are bringing the world more optimism as they make promises to have peace between them.

But North Korea’s Kim Jong Un will meet Trump in late May or June for a Summit to try to resolve tensions on the Korean peninsula.

We shall see if that meeting adds to the optimism or begins to drag us into war cries again.

The Middle East holds the most possibility for great conflict as Trump will open up a USA embassy in Jerusalem in mid May, and he will also likely put a stop to the Obama and world agreement with Iran. He will likely do that by putting sanctions back on Iran. That decision also happens in mid May. There are so many countries involved in Syria, it would not take much for it to ignite into something big

So now after the Portal was opened at the Aries New Moon on April 15, we watch all the important world events come pouring through that portal. There are many more to come.

And you know you have entered a whole New Chapter of your own life.    As we get farther away from the New Moon Portal of April 15, you get more and more clear about what is manifesting in this New Chapter for you.

We have all been releasing what needs to be let go of, and as the process of letting go calms down now, we will see more clearly what is being formed as a result.  Letting go, releasing and purging, opens up space to let the new in.

Many of us have felt we have been caught between worlds or chapters of our life- the old no longer exists, yet the new not formed or in some cases not even envisioned yet.

But the shift has happened, and from now on we will get more clear about what is coming, both personally and globally.

This process of moving forward will accelerate in June, July, August.  In July/August there will be 3 eclipses in a row, and usually there are only 2 in a row.

Both Mercury and Mars will be retrograde during much of that Eclipse Season, adding to the complexity of that Season.

Remember that the old world and paradigm will suffer even more at the Fall of Rome again. It fell at the beginning of the Age of Pisces and falls again at the end of the Age of Pisces.

The reality of Empires and Superpowers is dying as the Pisces Age dies.  The new paradigm of Diversity within Unity comes with the Age of Aquarius, as power is more equally distributed.

The old form of Capitalism will die too, as there is plenty of wealth to be spread all over the globe for all the people. Now there is too much disparity between the mega wealthy and suffering poor.

Is it OK to perpetuate an economic system that rewards those whose talent is to make money, and punishes those who cannot develop riches? Do you realize how many talented, creative, spiritual and idealistic people we are losing in this world because their highest priority needs to be making money.

Greed pays  off in this system, as does domination and abuse of power.

We are in the process of transforming this system in America and all over the world.

New light, love and truth are trying to move through the cracks of the system’s concrete structure.  Those cracks will open wider soon, especially so during the next Eclipse Season in July and August.

The Portal opened on April 15, and the energies creating the Age of Aquarius will continue to look for openings in all of us.

Transformation is our reality now, so do not be afraid of how the world is looking at times now.

Humans often think they rule the Universe and Earth.  The Universe and Earth laugh. We will not destroy the Earth or the Heavens.

The cycles, planets, and seasons keep turning no matter what we do. But we sure can make our own lives to suffer, and we sure are capable of destroying ourselves.

Concentrate on your own evolution of consciousness and on spreading your light, truth and love to all you come in contact with. That is what saves the world.

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Retrograde, Spring Equinox and Astrology Forecast March 18-24

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week with Mars entering Capricorn, New Moon  in Pisces, Spring Equinox and Mercury Retrograde.

This means the energy fields we move within are changing this week.  The changes will shift our consciousness and lives in preparation for the Portal Opening on April 15.

It is obvious now that the greater world and culture we reside within is in a chaotic and not so predictable state of being.   The White House is reflective of this state of being, and it is in shambles, and always in some sort of transition.

And of course whether you feel in alignment with the new Administration or not, this Administration and its volatility are a symbol of the condition of the USA right now.

The Stock Market and economy; the Mueller probe; the porn actress’s accusations; the growing dangers with Iran, Syria, Israel, North Korea; the trade wars; and the macho strutting with Russia and China put all of us on our toes waiting for even greater changes.

We are in the midst of an enormous transformation of the country and world.

Trump is not causing the chaotic climate that makes us ripe for such transformation. He is instead a lead actor on the world stage, just the right actor to help facilitate world events that will take us to the edge of darkness,  so we can call on the Phoenix who will rise from the ashes of our old paradigm’s burning.

Some are already getting into survivalist mode, while others not as alarmed are  still being called to make changes in their consciousness and lives, changes that are aligned with the world we are moving into.

Others of us are not sure what direction to move toward, and are seemingly waiting for events to unfold to show the way.

The next few weeks will not show us clear direction, however, especially so because Mercury is going Retrograde on March 22 at 8:19 PM EDT.

As usual the ‘re’s will in charge during Mercury Retrograde: rewind, reflect, readjust, rebalance, remind, realign.

There is much processing to do now, as it is not time now to move toward bottom line decisions and even bottom line logical answers.

Allow Mercury Retrograde to have you go inward to reflect, to question what has been previously understood or decided, to bring to you memories of the past and to bring back people to you from your past.

The people from the past will likely not stay with you after they return, though sometimes they do.  The questioning of previous understandings and decisions does not mean you will truly change your direction from what you have chosen, but sometimes it does.

The New Moon in Pisces this Saturday the 17th was at 9:12 AM EDT.  Though it is a New Moon, Pisces is not a sign of action to move forward.

Pisces brings everything together in integration and unity, to get ready for the movement forward later, this time after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

Pisces is the sign for the last month of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the transition sign for moving into new beginnings of Spring.

As such we now do soul searching, shadow integration, and getting in touch with deeper feelings;  especially feelings of sadness and grief, of fading memories, of snapshots of previously not remembered early life events.

We face ghosts of the past,  want to resolve old issues, and hopefully find some closure.

This Pisces time we are doing even deeper soul diving than usual, wanting to gather everything together in anticipation of the coming forward movement in our lives, collectively and personally.

There may be some energetic confusion as we also experience the beginning of spring this week.  It is on Tuesday March 20 at 12:15 PM EDT.

This is the first moment of the Sun’s movement into Aries, as it does to begin every Spring Equinox.

Aries is the force of new life buds bursting through the branches. It is a baby being born, a teenager’s awkward movement form childhood to adulthood.  It is a new challenge, a competition, showing a new way, standing up for yourself or what you believe in, being brave even when you are afraid,  fighting the good fight, self assertion, self honoring, alpha attitude, and taking action.

The confusion may come from the fact that Mercury is going Retrograde and there is a need to process and rewind before truly moving forward.

So use this Spring Equinox Aries entry to begin to wake yourself up! Winter is over, even if the weather still feels like Winter.  The turning point energetically is happening this week, so get in touch with that energy and wake your self from the doldrums of Winter, from being kinda depressed from such a harsh and difficult winter.

No need to go fast forward, just wake up. Soon there will be the need for action and for fresh events to manifest. But not now. Even action oriented Mars is being affected by the gravity of Capricorn now.

It moved into Capricorn on the 17th at the New Moon in Pisces. It will stay in Capricorn until May 16, when it goes into Aquarius.

But this year Mars will go back into Capricorn from mid August till Mid September.

The reason is because Mars goes Retrograde on June 26, then retraces its previous steps.

Mars in Capricorn takes away the spontaneous and sometimes impulsive instinct of Mars.

Mars puts on a uniform of military or police when in Capricorn, giving it discipline and boundaries, rules and structure to act within.

So with Mars now in Capricorn, it is time to ground your actions, to make goals and commitments, to organize and plan, to make manifest.

Just remember that we are in Mercury Retrograde until April 15, so there may be some confusion till then, and if you are not that confused, you will still need to wait before manifesting or making absolute statements.

After April 15 the train of our lives starts it engines, but remember that Mercury will just begin to be Direct that day, so total clarity may still need to form, and movement will still not be fast forward. Big events will likely be a few weeks or a few months away then.

So with all this knowledge look at the country and world.  The White House will still be rearranging the deck chairs of its Titanic voyage.

There  will be more employee firings and hirings this coming month, more drama and confusion, more setting the stage for coming events.

Trump is planning to meet with Kim Jong Un in April or May; the USA is moving its embassy to Jerusalem in May. Other important world events will spring forward in April, May and later this year.

Your life and consciousness are working out  what needs to be worked out now. Do your best not to judge your self now or what you did or didn’t do in the past.

Let go of old stories that keep you stuck.  Let go of old stories that make you feel like a victim or loser or failure or horrible person.

The past, no matter what it was, is a stepping stone for your life as it grows and transforms into one of purpose and authenticity, one of love and forgiveness.

Love yourself from all time periods and ages of your life. Have compassion for your self, for the seeming mistakes you might have made. Forgive yourself and others as best you can organically.

It is almost time for us all to move forward more fully into this New Chapter of our lives on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And the less baggage we take with us from our past the better.  No you will not be able to tie a pretty bow on all those traumas and disappointments, disillusions and heart wounds.

But you can forgive, learn to trust enough, and have faith all happens with meaning.

You can gain enough closure to be able to move forward. But do not despair if all has not been worked out to total satisfaction. It never is perfect.

Till next week,

Leo

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

Standing Up Strong and Astrology Forecast November 12-18

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 11, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move through the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began on October 19 at the New Moon in Libra.

Last quarter moon phases are times of coming down, releasing, letting go, and gathering ourselves for the next new moon, in this case on Saturday November 18 at 6:42 AM EST.

As the Moon wanes, it slowly loses its light as it comes closer and closer to that new moon in darkness.

Along with the days getting darker and colder, the mood may get darker too this week.  Staying aware of that fact can help not letting oneself to be engulfed by fear or gloominess. Feel your natural feelings, but do not allow them to dominate you.

Add also the fact that the Sun is continuing in Scorpio, and so it is natural now to feel the yin side of life, to know what is real, to feel more deeply, to appreciate the hurt people go through sometimes.

So much has changed over the last year. We are in a new reality since the presidential election last year. And much has also shifted since Eclipse Season, which was highlighted by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo in August.

You can use this last quarter lunar cycle to get your bearings, to ground and center yourself, to allow yourself to feel whatever your feelings are naturally feeling, as long as you do not drown in them.

How has your own life changed over the last year? Have you experienced much change and transformation since then?  What more changes do you anticipate?  Do you need to speak up about something, as so many are doing now in the world.

And this need will only grow at and after the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18.

While we watch the Trump dramas and the volatility of world relations now, sometimes teetering on dangerous; we are also experiencing great transformation beyond old toxic ways.

Power abusers and sexual predators are being called out as we are all being made aware how prevalent such abuse has been and is still. And now the world will change as a result of the increased awareness and stigma of being an abuser.

We are becoming more and more able to change this world into one more aligned with the higher values of the Age of Aquarius.

And part of that change is knowing that No one is inherently better than anyone else, and deserving more privilege and selfish gain.

Age of Aquarius is about equality and diversity within unity. There is no royalty, no superior/inferior,  no privilege for being born in a certain family or culture.

And no has the right, no matter what position in life they hold, to abuse their power in order to take from others what they do not want to willingly give.

This challenging the power order and hierarchy will continue and will get more intense.

Much of the volatility in our world will soon become explosions that will eventually clear the air of arrogance, and domination over others.

In the game created in the old paradigm, there are some who have privilege and power and deserve more.  In the old paradigm in America, celebrity and wealth and privilege make one better, with more power and deserving of more than others.

Only in that kind of paradigm can someone like Trump become president. Only in that kind of paradigm can slavery and sex trafficking be reality.

Trump and people like Cosby, Weinstein, and Spacey are given this power and privilege in the old paradigm.  And they are all now staring us in our faces because the Universe is showing us in stark terms the kind of world we are in, and one we need to change.

And some of you are thinking that this is the way it has always been and will always be.  And I tell you I know a place, a dimension, a reality where that does not exist.

And that dimension with its energy and consciousness is wanting to materialize in the Age of Aquarius.

Its light is trying to pour into our consciousness, which is why each of us is challenged to break down the blockages and release old traumas and programming so this light can come in without impediment.

And we are sitting in a time when it feels painful when we are controlled more by the old world, and lighter as we awaken and heal within the new world.

And we will naturally go back and forth until we arrive on the other side of the bridge of transformation.

It is like the breakup of an old dysfunctional relationship.  There is fear of loss, deep sense of insecurity, guilt, blame,  anger, and concern that no better relationship will ever come to such a failure.  That is the pull of your old world.

But there is also a sense of hope for a better life,  a sense of liberation, and an opening of one’s heart again.

And that new life, truly a new life, is only possible if old belief systems, old programming, and old mental tapes are released and transformed at a deep level so new light, love, and truth can pour in. And with it healthier relationships.

Often times however, the process is ugly at first, explosive and filled with rage and fear.

But that is necessary sometimes as discomfort, chaos, and unsettled emotions push us to awaken to the truth and make the changes necessary.

And the system of our old Establishment will continue to be challenged more and more by world events and human rebellion.  And as it breaks down, we each need to release old beliefs and security systems in our minds in order to transform our lives and transform the culture and world into the new Paradigm and Age.

This week experience the darkening Moon and mood, then get ready for a powerful New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th. Then on the 19th Mars will make an explosive square to Pluto.

This is a turning point time period, a time to stoke up again the powers of deep transformation.

Let your self be more empowered and speak your truth.   No one can put themselves up as better than you, and tell you what to be or do.

But you enable them if you do not speak up or tell someone who can help, as silence tells abusers or bully people that they can continue their dominance and abuse.

In time the whole idea of perpetrator and victim, predator and prey within the human condition will be diminished and greatly released.  You are not a predator or victim, not a predator or prey, and that old way of believing enables bullies and sexual predators to continue to exist.

Without a victim there is no perpetrator.  So identifying with being a victim keeps you locked up and chained in an old reality.

Yes you may have been victimized but you are not a victim.

Till next week,

Leo
