Ready or Not and Astrology Forecast March 26- April 1

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 25, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Time to start up the engines of our lives, as a New Moon in Aries motivates us to get moving.

It has always seemed to me to be a strange time for the New Year,  on January 1 when the Sun is in Capricorn.   It seems to me that man made reality is out of touch with “nature”.  Actually not very surprising, is it?

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and Saturn is about “what one is supposed to do” more than about what comes naturally.   Capricorn is about rules, self discipline, material accomplishment, responsibility, and authority.

Aries time of year is much more naturally about fresh new beginnings, of taking action, of moving forward, and initiating.  To me that feels much more like New Year.

Spring Equinox is the beginning of Sun in Aries, but the New Moon in Aries (when the Moon catches up to the Sun in Aries) seems like the most powerful time energetically for New Year.

New Moon in Aries 2017 is Monday March 27 at 10:57 PM EDT.  So on Tuesday the 28th we can start the ignition for our lives this year.

Pisces time of year, a time of internal psychological and spiritual movement, is passing.  Grief has been really strong for many people lately and that is aligned with the energy of Pisces.

So it is time to finish up the process of releasing the past, for now, and instead we can start to move forward with more conscious intention.

This Aries New Moon also effectively ends Eclipse Season.  So the events that will be coming soon will be resulting from what shook up during Eclipse Season, which goes back to late January.

World events that have been brewing and boiling will be ready soon to erupt into our lives.

The Trump administration, along with many nationalistic movements in the world, are setting things up in a way similar to before the start of World War II.

Mussolini, Franco, and Hitler represented this nationalism and the power of individual leaders over their citizens.

The United States in its beginning was a healthy reaction to a world of Kings and Queens, dictators, and abuse of power.

Now with the Trump administration, there is a movement toward more power for the president and the executive branch of the goverment. Other countries are moving in that direction also.

Power of the people is being threatened as a result, and it is time for the people to speak even louder, and now also to act.

Our country’s core values are at stake, and the current self assuming King will need to be somehow counteracted or overthrown.

Usually the way that the King gets more power is through a crisis like war or terrorism or economic downturn, when people are so afraid that they want “daddy” to make them feel safe and secure.

This time when the crises hit, and they will, we the people must take responsibility for our country and world- not turn it over to the “royalty” or saviors.

Saviors are part of the Pisces Age, and we are moving fast toward group action in an Age of Aquarius.

No longer can we consider our leaders as Gods, royalty , or saviors.

We  are the ones we are looking for to heal our Earth and human family, not the “special ones” or “privileged ones”.

So yes we can expect major world crises to shake things up and open up the portals to new ways and new consciousness.

That means more and more people will be awakened, and those already awakened will take more responsibility for our world and human family.

The old traditional ways no longer work right, and we cannot keep trying to revive them so we can bring the world back to how it used to be. “Used to be” is dead and gone.

We are ready to create the new world, and many people are already doing that in their personal lives and consciousness.

And with each transformational jolt we receive, the energy to create this new world in both our personal and collective lives increases.

And August this year will be a big turning point for us, as there are 2 powerful eclipses, especially the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21. That one will be the first since 1918 to travel over the whole of the United States .  99 years ago that happened.

So let go of how you wanted the changes to happen.  We need to deal with what has really happened.

We can now stop crying and instead get started again moving forward on our authentic soul path. The aligned connection to our true self and the Universe is what we need as a foundation for our life and our contribution to our world.

Fear is your only enemy now, as it is debilitating and if held to for long leads to depression, hatreds, disconnections, and very bad choices.

So this week, let’s get back up.

There is a strong New Moon in Aries late on the 27th, then a powerful Jupiter square Pluto mid week.

That Jupiter square Pluto triggers the Cardinal T-Square that keeps staying with us. Seven of our 10 planets will then be in Cardinal signs, which means important new starts.

The cardinal signs, which represent the beginning sign of each season, also quite arguably bring out the most important parts of our lives.

Aries is being true to self and personal survival; Cancer is home, family, and inner values; Libra is relationships and social consciousness; and Capricorn is outer values and accomplishment in the world. 

All these integral parts of what it means to be alive are being challenged to grow and evolve in our lives.

This week allow the new energies to rouse you out of your sleepiness or out of your bubble of protection.

Take the ride.

Till next week,

Leo

Creating Reality and Astrology Forecast January 8-14.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Many people are feeling relieved as Mercury goes Direct on Sunday January 8 at 4:43 AM EST.  January 8 is a transition day for Mercury as it has been retrograde, then it is stationary, then it goes direct.

Sunday or even -Saturday through Monday- could be a time when things may be somewhat confusing, and communication could be more difficult than usual.

For some, clarity and direction unfold rather quickly after Mercury has gone direct; but for others a week or so is needed before all the fog lifts.

During Mercury Retrograde this time- did you experience any rewind into times and people from your past?  Did it happen just in dreams or thoughts, or did people from the past actually surface back into your life.

What is the significance of their appearing now in your life?  Have they helped you to put into meaningful context experiences or relationships that are happening now?

You can now feel more confident making important decisions or communicating something important to others.

This week there is also a Full Moon in Cancer on Thursday January 12 at 6:34 AM EST.

And it could be a rather meaningful time as Venus conjuncts Neptune in Pisces that same day, Mercury moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn, and most importantly a Cardinal Grand Cross is formed with the Full Moon.

The Full Moon in Cancer means that the Sun is directly opposite the Moon from Capricorn.  This happens at 22+ degrees of Cancer and Capricorn.

With Jupiter in Libra at 22+ degrees and Uranus in Aries at 20+ degrees, there is a Cardinal Grand Cross formed with the Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer.

And Pluto gets involved too as it is 17+ degrees of Capricorn conjunct the Sun.  So five planets, two of them (Uranus and Pluto) being powerful transformational planets, make a strong Cardinal Grand Cross.

So for the days surrounding this Full Moon, it should be eventful and intense.

We will be pulled in 4 different directions, and it may feel impossible to intellectually make sense of issues or balance them.

Cancer pulls us into feelings, family, nurturance, and personal life.  Capricorn pulls us into having structure, discipline, boundaries.  And it also pulls us into accomplishment and career.

Uranus in Aries gets us to wake up to our needs for freedom, breaking out of stuck places, and honoring our individual authentic self.

And Jupiter in Libra inspires us to find balance, grace and beauty, while being more sensitive to relationship and the needs of others.

And Pluto gives everything the possibility of transformation through very intense and passionate interchange and expression.

Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces turns the light of romanticizing on, while it fosters our needs to find escape from difficult situations or feelings.  It also will help us to surrender to the Universe and go with the flow.

And that is the best thing to do around this Full Moon as it is a complicated time period.

With Mercury only just getting back Direct, please question the previous truths and be discriminating of what is real and what is fake News.

With Mercury just moving back into Capricorn, there will be some help in finding bottom line reality.

Out in the world now, it is getting more and more difficult to determine what is true and what is not true.

People are spinning the truth to further their own agendas, while also with internet and social media there is a sometimes overwhelming amount of information and opinion that contradicts other information and opinion.

And now with the transition between an Obama Presidential administration and a new Trump Presidential administration; there will be a huge difference of opinion on what is best for the United States and the world and our own personal lives.

Already the Trump newly forming administration, which mainly represents red state culture, is trashing what President Obama has accomplished and stood for.  Many programs like Obamacare are in danger of being eliminated.

And many people with blue state cultural leanings are afraid and demonizing what Trump might bring to our world and country.

And we the people are being thrust into one side or the other of the split between parties and cultures.

In my mind it is best to stay out of the hatred and fear, stay out of making this a war- even of words.

Find your center, trust the Universe and your connection to your own sovereign mind, soul and body.

Do not be swayed by “peer pressure” or what you “should be” doing,saying or believing in.

Find your own truth and THE truth and stand up for what YOU believe in.

Stay as healthy as you can, and do your best to not be pulled into personal mental and emotional hells.

Trust the Process, and do not get hooked into the fear of what could or should happen.

Believe in your self and the circular cycles of the Universe.

No human made system, structure, paradigm, or agendas are greater than the Truth and Love that is represented by the Universe.

Humans are not the greatest and most powerful entity in this Universe.  It is true narcissism and megalomania to believe that.

We are grains of sand in the vastness of the Universe, and the only real danger is that some our current breed will be the dinosaurs of the future.

Donald Trump cannot control your life or destiny, only contribute to making it less comfortable and pleasing.

You, with your relationship to your own soul and the Universe, create your reality.

Will you join me in creating the Age of Aquarius?

Love,

Leo

Sacred Turning Point and Astrology Forecast December 25- December 31.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 24, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we move through a sacred Judeo/Christian time period, we are in the darkening last quarter of the lunar cycle- until Thursday December 29.  

Last week we experienced the darkest time of the solar cycle- leading up to the Winter Solstice.

This will feel like a very sad and soulful time for many people.

2016 is coming to an end, and the Presidency of Barack Obama is soon to end also.

In many ways President Obama brought us closer to an Age of Aquarius. Though the Miltary/Industrial Complex still rules, his policies brought us “friendlier” relationships with Cuba, Iran, the Muslim world and Palestinians.

He also was the first President of color and he helped to move us towardgreater inclusiveness with the LGBT community by leading the way toward cultural acceptance of gay marriage and transgender people.

Now, if looking at life from a global outer world perspective, we will in many ways seem to be moving backwards in experiencing much of the old paradigm from a dying age.

The Trump administration and nationalistic movements in many western countries bring with it more separation and greater chances of world conflicts and war.

Though I strongly believe we are metaphorically taking 2 steps backward before taking many steps forward in a few years, it is understandable that many people are feeling greater fear and anger.

But even though the outer global world feels as if it is going backwards, those of us on a spiritual path will be challenged to grow and evolve.

How do we keep love in our hearts while the world is going crazy? How do we let go of hatred and fear when leaders in the outer world are bringing us policies that bring greater danger to our environment and Earth?

How can we keep our center when leaders in the new American administration are all very wealthy and militaristic?

How do we stop ourselves from being depressed when we witness greater misogyny and prejudice, while there is more world conflict and more separation between haves and have nots economically?

Christ, who is being celebrated by many now, gave us an example of having love, compassion, and faith in a world filled with hate, corruption, and injustice.

The beginning of the Pisces Age was begun around the birth of Christ with its fish symbols.  This birth happened just a few years after the births of Buddha and Lao Tse, and a few years before Mohammed, all signature figures of the Age of Pisces.

Though the messages of these spiritual masters was largely diluted and corrupted by churches in their names during the Pisces Age, it is incumbent on each us to resurrect and deeply own in our consciousness the essence of what each of these people represented.

The many faceted and mysterious great Goddess is an important part of the Age of Aquarius, and as she energetically joins with the spiritual masters of the Age of Pisces, we have our spiritual foundation for the Age of Aquarius.

But they are not above us in hierarchy in an Age of Aquarius.  They are us, integrated deeply in each of our hearts and souls.

And now that is our inner work: evolving spiritually in a toxic world, to be “in the world but not of the world”.

At the same time, we begin our outer work of planting seeds of change for the outer world. We will participate in protests, gatherings like the Million Woman March on the day after Inauguration Day for Donald Trump, and civil disobedience as was shown by Martin Luther King and Ghandhi.

We must each find our way to seeing the bigger picture and commiting to a New Age regardless of who is president or who is ruling the world.  Who do you believe runs this Universe? Is it Caesar of the material world or the energies of Love and Truth?

This week we experience the darkening Moon until December 29 at the New Moon in Capricorn at 1:53 AM EST.

That same day brings us the liberating, awakening energies of Uranus as it changes directions from Retrograde to Direct. Uranus, arguably more than any other planet, signifies change.

So there will be a feeling surrounding the 29th of new beginnings and big change.

The New Moon in Capricorn shows us the beginning of a greater sense of responsibility, loyalty, groundedness, and needs to accomplish.

The Sun is always in Capricorn on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day when many people make their resolutions. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn which rules Time.  Capricorn is also about plans, commitment, and discipline, which are a big part of resolutions.

Uranus changing directions often feels like radical change and revolution.

So this would then be a great time to make a commitment (Capricorn) to revolution and transformational change (Uranus).

I would also not be surprised by big world events around this time.

On New Years Eve, Mars will be conjunct Neptune.

Mars is action, force, and will.  Neptune as God of the Ocean is deep soul and feelings.  It is the inner spiritual world as ruling planet of Pisces.

It also rules alcohol and drugs.  So be very careful how much you use those to bring in the New Year 2017.

Neptune is also letting go, going with the flow and surrender.  So Mars’ force will be greatly diluted by Neptune.  So it is best not to force issues or agendas, and instead to be flexible and trusting of energies and realities beyond our controls.

till next week when we will look at the year ahead.

I will put out a YouTube video soon after the first. I also intend to host an ongoing streaming radio show soon also. More on that later.

Winter Solstice, Mercury Retrograde, and Astrology Forecast December 18-24

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 17, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we experience changing planetary winds:   Mercury Retrograde, Winter Solstice, 4th quarter Moon, and Mars in Pisces.

Inward and Yinward is the prevailing theme of this week’s turning point energies.

Winter Solstice takes us into the darkest day of the year.  The 4th quarter Moon takes us into the darkest phase of the lunar cycle.  Mars leaving Aquarius for Pisces takes us more inward into deeper consciousness.  Mercury Retrograde turns us more reflective and inner directed.

Mercury goes Retrograde on December 19 at 5:55 AM. It will stay Retrograde until January 8 2017 when it goes back Direct.

The 19th is also the day that the electors cast their votes for President of the USA.

Back on November 7 of 2000 on election day, Mercury was changing direction from Retrograde to Direct.

On the day Mercury changes direction from Direct to Retrograde or from Retrograde to Direct, it can be quite a confusing day.

That day in 2000 media anchors kept going back and forth in announcing victory for Bush, then Gore, then Bush, then Gore, etc.

It was many weeks afterward when Bush was declared President.

So it does seem meaningful that the electors cast their votes for President on the day Mercury changes direction.

This certainly does not mean that the vote will be reversed and the Presidency will be taken away from Trump.

But it could very well mean the day will bring some confusion as to what is happening with the votes.  Already this electoral vote is more controversial then past electoral voting, as some electors have already promised to change their vote or to abstain from voting.

And the questioning of the Electoral College being used instead of popular vote is already happening.  So you can see Mercury doing its job as we get closer and closer to the day it goes retrograde.

The Mercury Retrograde time period shows us a shift in our mental perceptions and a questioning of previous mind frames, paradigms, decisions, and beliefs.

Mercury Retrograde also can kind of rewind the clock of our lives, bringing back old memories through dreams, daytime thoughts, and from people actually showing up again in our lives.  This rewind can help us to better put our current lives in perspective, and provide us with deeper insight into current issues and relationships.

Mercury Retrograde also can bring spaciness, forgetfulness, difficult communication, and challenges with technological communication networks and equipment.

Mercury Retrograde is not usually a good time to make big decisions or to start important new projects.

On January 8, when it goes back Direct, clarity begins to form again.  It is interesting that the results from electoral votes on December 19 will not be reported until January 6, just before Mercury goes back Direct again.

Mercury Retrograde is best experienced from a reflective inner directed mind.   And inner direction this week is not just shown by Mercury but also because the 4th quarter of the current lunar cycle begins on December 2o.

This 4th quarter Moon is in Virgo and suggests we need to  become more discerning and simplified- in contrast to the rising flames of intution from the Sun in Sagittarius.

So there is more inward and yinward energetic movement.  This 4th quarter lunar phase, when lunar light gets darker and darker, ends with the New Moon in Capricorn on December 28/29. 

And there is even more turning inward as we experience the darkest time of year just before the Winter Solstice.

The moment we symbolically turn back again to more light every day is on December 21 at 5:44 AM EST.

This lead up to the Winter Solstice and the day of the Solstice is a very solemn time period.

We may experience deep feelings like sadness and grief, yet if totally present internally we may feel the hope that comes back as the light returns on Winter Solstice.

Every day light will get more time until Spring Equinox when light and dark are equal.

Christmas is aligned with the Winter Solstice in that Christ is considered the light of hope for people, especially those who suffer in their darkness of their suffering.

The Sun moves into Capricorn on Winter Solstice and begins a month of feeling responsibility, rules and regulations, desires to build and accomplish, needs to be disciplined and organized.

But more inward movement is suggested with Mars moving into Pisces on December 19.  It will stay in Pisces until January 28 when it goes into fiery Aries.

From December 19 until January  28 Mars will be swimming in watery Pisces.  Neptune, god of the ocean, is the “ruling” planet of Pisces.

Mars is usually a very active planet, self assertive, action oriented, willful, and forceful.

But in Pisces it is more peaceful, inner directed, flowing, passive, and self sacrificing.

It seeks to take it easy, to go with the flow, and explore inner dimensions and spiritual worlds.

It is not a great force for new beginnings or willful forcing of what one desires.

But it is great at diving into psychological insights, and processing deeper emotions and thoughts.

So almost all the planetary aspects this week suggest it is best to slow down, relax, go inward, and feel your feelings.

For many there is more time to do so now, as they have holiday season’s slow down of work from their jobs.

Do your best not to run around and stress, instead remember that deeper values are what the holidays represent.

And though many are feeling really down about the election, Standing Rock, Aleppo, and where our country and world are headed; remember that the Nature of the Universe is bringing us through transformation into a New World and Age.

Though it may seem like darker days for humanity are upon us and will continue for a long time, in actuality beyond the TV screen of our world and outer lives we are awakening and evolving.

More and more people are breaking the chains of societal programming and leaving the herd that is walking off the cliff of an old human paradigm for living on this Earth.

The return of the light on Winter Solstice shows us not the hope of shifting the results of the election, but instead the hope that no matter what the election results show, there is no stopping the train into the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

A Step Beyond and Astrology Forecast September 11- 17.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is round 2 of eclipses, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces on Friday September 16 at 3:05 PM EDT.

That means that intensity will build this coming week appreciably until it climaxes on or around the 16th.

Since Mercury also stays Retrograde all this week, it may at times feel quite off balance emotionally and mentally.

The more one energetically rides the waves, the better.   If one holds too tightly and tries to control too much it will be more difficult this week.

Adding to the intensity of the eclipse, Mars in Sagittarius will square the points of the Sun and Moon positions of the eclipse.

That makes a T-square formation, a usually difficult pulling in 3 different directions energetically.

Sun in Virgo pulls toward physical order, logical analysis, and perfecting or fixing;  Moon in Pisces wants to be able to let go and surrender, allow the soul to speak its truth, and to go with the flow.   Both seek to be of service to others or to something greater than the self.

Mars in Sagittarius wants to stoke the fires of enthusiasm and inspiration, take the exciting adventure, and trust inspiration.   Virgo moves downward, Pisces moves inward, Sagittarius moves upward.    Virgo is earth, Pisces is water, Sagittarius is fire.

If you try too hard to figure everything out this week, you will likely be frustrated.  If you encounter challenges or difficulties, it will be best to let the process unfold without needing to totally understand everything or to force conclusions or answers.

Remember that Mercury is Retrograde and as such it requires letting go of mental controls, and instead to trust other ways of comprehension like intuition or imagination.

You may be rewinding the clock of your life now, revisiting with people from your past through dreams, memories or actual in-person connections.

This may bring up unresolved issues, issues you have put aside and thought were resolved well enough.

Current situations in your life can be seen as similar to the ones that are coming back to you from the past.

You thus have the opportunity to work through blocks or dysfunctional patterns in your life or relationships.    The past only needs to come back so it can be applied to current issues that need resolution or healing. Or perhaps it is back so you find closure to the old issues, so you can move on in your life or relationships.

If you are feeling hurt beyond what seems “logical”, then you know it is an old wound or trauma that has been triggered inside you.

Eclipses help us to move out of stuck places in our minds or hearts. They do so by taking us out of our comfort zones, creating breakdowns or breakthroughs out of those stuck energies.

Mercury Retrograde helps us to see with new lens, to perceive differently, to go outside the old boxes.  It helps us to question a belief or direction we have chosen.

We then have the opportunity to change directions, to think and feel differently, or to end up feeling even more confident of what was previously chosen.

You can see why it is wise, with the eclipses and Mercury Retrograde to not jump to conclusions, or leap into anything.

All is in process now, and bottom line thinking is off its usual abilities.   Be patient and wait it out.  Before too long (sometime after Mercury goes back direct on September 22nd) renewed clarity and direction will surface from the fog.

In the global picture during this Eclipse Season and Mercury Retrograde:  the election process for President of the USA is getting even more mean spirited from both sides; a truce has been called in war torn Syria; North Korea is looking more dangerous than ever; the USA is  getting more estranged from China and some Asian nations like the Philippines; the economy  and stock market are showing signs of difficulty; Iran and the USA are sabre rattling with one another; and the Middle East in general feels like a kind of calm before the coming storms.

These issues will tend to build intensity this week with some kind of climax around the Lunar Eclipse.   Then all will begin to shift around the 22nd on Autumn Equinox with Mercury back Direct again.

Life as we know it is rapidly changing right before our eyes now, and we are only just in the beginning of the transformation.

We have a long way to go before we reach what is needed and aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

Things in some ways will get much worse, like with societal structures and institutions, which are decaying and self destructing.

But in the process we are as a human collective re-aligning with core principles and ideals.

We are reaching more up to the heavens of our divine nature, while at the same time getting more comfortable with our connection to sacred Mother Earth and her Natural rhythms.

We are honoring more our souls and spiritual natures, while learning to trust our bodies and their wisdom at the same time.

All is connected and working together for a common unity and evolutionary growth.

All is pointing toward the star of the Age of Aquarius.  It may not be exactly what each of us wants, but it will give us all exactly what we collectively need in our travels around the wheel of our Universe into a New Age.

Expect the unexpected and do not be too surprised if we before too long see the proof that we as Earthlings are not alone in the Universe.

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast April 24-30

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on April 23, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We let you know that the entrance into the New Era last week would be explosive. And last week began with two powerful earthquakes in Japan and especially Equador.

The transition into our new Era has been particularly intense and difficult for many including myself. There has been much pain, karma, and emotional baggage to work through.

These experiences are helping us to clear the way so we can let in the new energies of the new era, which is a transitional era into the Age of Aquarius in the 2020’s.

We can soon expect a wide difference between realities for people. Some will be moving mostly within the new light, others will fearfully be fighting to keep the status quo.

There can be no judgment on them. They are human beings not feeling ready for the evolutionary movement for humans on Earth now.

Those more connected to the Age of Aquarius, with its equality, freedom, truth following, and connections in love, will be “fighting” for this new world.

Those not ready will be getting more and more conservative and will exert powerful attempts to control and dominate the polulace. Martial law is an extreme that may turn into reality later this year.

Riots by the people for the new ways could bring out the worst in the “Powers that Be”.

Look at our presidential election process and you can see the potential for what I am saying.

People are fed up with a “system” that limits their freedoms, is unjust and unfair, and does not allow them to feed their families without being “slaves” to the system.

The powerful economic and military structure that runs this world does not allow for ‘instabilities” by the people.

Look now at protests in America.  In the ’60s people could protest anywhere they liked. Now they are cordoned off into small places under control for their protests.

Our police departments now have tanks and other military items to “keep the peace”.

But the uprisings will not go away this time, as we are ready for revolution and evolution beyond what we have seen before.

There is even a possibility of vast alien sightings later this year to shake things up and help people to awaken and evolve beyond anything we have seen before.

All you have to do is work on your consciousness, make sure you are not brought down into old places for too long.

Of course when an old trauma has been triggered or when your health or mortality are threatened, you will of course react in fearful ways. But you do not need to stay there too long.

You will instead come back to the track your consciousness has been growing into.

This week,as we continue through our initiation into this New Era, we experience Mercury Retrograde. It blows in on Thursday April 28 at 1:20 PM EDT.

As usual, your perceptions and consciousness are altered, and you will be seduced into needs to reflect.     Too much emphasis on left brain logical thinking will not be as effective as usual.  There will be a need to use your creative, imaginative right brain instead, as well as trust your heart and soul more.

Your perceptions will tend to go “backwards”, to rewind in some ways to old times and old people from your past.    These incidents or people come back in order to help us now to work out our issues, patterns, and current relationships.

As you know it is not a good time to be too set in your ways, with a rigid agenda. It is also not a good time to make big decisions or start important new projects.

Mercury goes back Direct on May 22.    If you are experience confusion or a desire to change directions in your life, that is somewhat normal for Mercury Retrograde.

But it is best to wait before changing directions until Mercury goes back Direct.

I have seen so many times that people need to stop and look over their plans during Mercury Retrograde before moving forward.  They need to make sure. Once Mercury goes back Direct they return to their original plans.

But I have also seen people truly change directions, after Mercury goes back Direct, and it works out. They needed to question their path, and Mercury Retrograde helped them to do just that.

So clarity may also be hard to come by during Mercury Retrograde, with clarity coming when it goes back Direct.

But please do not look for these Mercury Retrograde issues to surface in your life. Some people just go through some minor tweaks during the Retrograde period.

One thing is sure however. You will feel the difference once Mercury goes back Direct again.

On Friday April 29 Venus will move out of Aries and into Taurus.    Venus the Goddess of Love, is more like Athena, Goddess of War when in Aries. She stirs things up.

Going into Taurus, which is one of the two signs it rules (Libra the other), she is happier. She can luxuriate in her body and on the body of the Earth.

She brings comfort and an opening of the senses of smell, taste, touch, etc.  She seeks peace and security.  She does not like anything too intense.

She can help you now as we move past the Full Moon in Scorpio this past week and go down into the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Aries New Moon on April 7.

It is now time to come down and heal, to regroup and rethink, to prepare for the next New Moon in Taurus on May 6.

With Mercury Retrograde coinciding with the waning lunar cycle, it is not now time to expand, advance or drastically progress.  Go inward and yinward now for best results.

Till next week,

Leo

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday June 4 at 1 PM  EDT.  At this point I am leaning toward Saturdays June 18 and June 25 at 1 PM to finish up the series. The second and third dates are not set in stone yet.   Each class will last approximately 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world evetns will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
Audio recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.

Processing and Preparing and Astrology Forecast March 27- April 2

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It has been quite an intense Eclipse Season for many.   We are in transition between chapters of our lives.   We are releasing and perhaps grieving where we have been and who has been with us from the now passing chapter of our lives.

The Lunar Eclipse last week was quite powerful and an important turning point for many.

The old can no longer be easily held onto anymore.  We are being strongly motivated to let go, and if we are capable of letting go with love, that is usually the healthiest way to go.

But truth is also important now, and holding oneself and others accountable is part of that truth.

The next chapter of our lives will be long term better if we leave the old chapter in the “right way”.  Perhaps we have regrets, but they are not good to hold onto.  We can learn from them and find meaning from them, but beating ourselves and others up is out of alignment and does not help our new journey forward.

From now until April 7, at the New Moon in Aries,  we are processing all we have recently gone through on the physical plane, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

We are prepping and preparing on all levels for the strong movement forward after the 7th of April.

So April 7 is a good marking point, if you need one, for new beginnings of all sorts.

If your 3-D life does not have any obvious new chapters, then go deeper inside to see what is changing.

Are you leaving behind old patterns and habits, old attitudes and beliefs?  Are you coming back to your true values and authenticity?   Are you rewiring your self or your life rom the inside?

Do get in touch with the changes now, as this is an important time period on our transformational journey, a time when we are evolving and progressing, whether we consciously know it or not.

In the Greater World there is great change happening between chapters and between ages.

Many signs are pointing to a long term war with the Islamic State, a war that is bound to trigger other conflictual relationships between world countries, cultures and egos.  The suicide bombing in Brussels at the eclipse this week was telling.

Is this what we want or what we need?

There is an economy that looks OK on the outside, but in many peoples’ real lives it is not OK.   How will the transformation of our world economy play out?

The USA presidential election is showing, through what the candidates represent, very different ideas of how to guide our lives going forward into a new chapter and soon new age.

Do we need to revisit old, outworn, unhealthy, destructive, dominating, greedy ways of living on this planet together?

What will it take for the vast majority of this world’s human population to get the fact that all humans are part of the same family with similar needs and hopes?

Will it take a huge wakeup call that happens by taking everything to the edge of despair first?  Or can we wake up in ways that will not destroy so many lives first.

Often I picture aliens coming down to our planet, scaring us, and motivating us to come together as one family in contrast to the Visitors.    I find that a better option than doing the world war and breakdown of our economy again.

Many from a now dying generation experienced a World War and a Depression in their youths.

Another more recent generation, now entering old age, experienced revolutionary times of great change, with much war and violence being a motivation for wanting to change the world.

But now the change at our doorsteps is more important than ever, as we are further along the road to an Age of Aquarius.

As such we so need beliefs and paradigms for each or us and collectively to deeply transform.

We can no longer just accept the idea that those with different orientations of all kinds are our enemy or someone not to be trusted.

We can no longer just accept the paradigm that evolution requires a dog-eat-dog mentality to survive.

We can no longer accept that our lives are filled with random events not connected with any meaning.

In fact we can no longer accept the belief that we are all separate with little or no threads of connection between us.

And we can no longer accept that truth is a matter of how you spin things.   Truth should not be just in the hands of those in power and control. Truth should not be in the hands of those “in authority”.

Truth is there for us all to witness, filtered through our own minds and hearts, not programmed into us by an unhealthy society.

So now this week, as we begin to “come down” from the disruptions of the eclipses, it is time to begin to bring more sanity and groundedness into your consciousness and lives.

Saturn, which just shot out its gravitational energies  to us through its change to retrograde last week, can now provide us with said grounding and organizational skills and discipline.

We can now take back some control of our lives, or better yet take full accountabilty and responsibilty for our own lives and choices.

So this week we begin the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on March 8.

There is a lot to to process and a lot to do while looking forward to new beginnings after the 7th of April.

Also this week, Mercury will be busy with aspects to expansive and transformational planets.

Mercury makes aspect to Jupiter on the 29th, Pluto on the 30th, and onjuncts Uranus on the 31st.

Mercury, the messenger of the gods, will be trying to deliver information from the heavens to each of us for our own lives and for the lives of us as a collective.

It will be a great week for meditation or spiritual practice.

Mercury is also about communication, and how you convey your message to others is important.  If you allow your mind to go deeper, you will get the help you need in how to communicate effectively.

Till next week,

Leo
