By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This last week was meant to be a wake-up call (Uranus Direct) that motivates us to get  outside old boxes in our minds, hearts, and lives. 

In so doing, we release that which has blocked our way, and we are then liberated from the chains of old beliefs, decaying patterns, and crusty habits of living and expressing.

We are getting ready to make the needed changes that will help us to lead our lives in a more aligned and authentic way.  It is time for “out with the old,  get ready for the new.”

2018 has just begun, and will take us further forward on a ride of transition between the old and new- in our personal lives and in our global lives.

This week the intensity amps up and seriousness gets stronger.  That which is frivolous, superficial, or light and airy will have little space in our life rooms for expression.

It might be needed and would be appreciated, but it is not what we are being presented with energetically this week.

On Saturday eve Mars conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio, which increases intensity and emotional volatility.   That intensity and seriousness will extend into Sunday and all through next week, as Sun and Venus in Capricorn make sextile to Jupiter in Scorpio; Mars in Scorpio makes sextile to Pluto in Capricorn; Sun and Venus in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; Moon in Scorpio from mid day Tuesday till Friday; and finally  Jupiter in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Scorpio on the 15th.

You will notice that all these planets and configurations are in Capricorn and Scorpio.

Those two signs “get down to business”, see at the core of truth, are very focused, and do not like time wasted by the trivial and superficial.

And most of all,  those two signs are about being REAL.  So this coming week, it will be difficult to avoid and escape.  Work is good.  Going to your personal underworld is good.  Being serious is aligned. Logical and organized is good.  Getting to what is important is needed.  Being present is required.

This week energies are yin, so we move yin-ward, so to speak; and this is especially so beginning late Monday as we enter the 4th and last quarter phase of the Moon’s cycle.

That 4th quarter will last until January 16 at the Capricorn New Moon.

So this week gives us mostly Capricorn and Scorpio.  Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which rules gravity. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto which rules the underworld.   

So you can see that movement is down to Earth and down under the Earth’s surface.  And that is what is happening for each of us too.

It is time to make things real, to make things work, to be more involved with manifesting (or at least making serious plans to manifest), building,  and grounding your ideas and ideals, your dreams, and your future plans.

In the greater world, issues will get more real there too.  It should be easier to see the grounded truths, without so much BS or fluffy marketing and spinning of the truth.

The stock market might also be getting a reality check, as might the economy in general.

Bubbles are ready to be broken, in our minds and in the world.

If you have wanted to talk frank and real- with authority- to someone in your life, this is a time to do it.  Honesty is now the best policy, especially with yourself.

What needs to be made real, to be faced straight on in your life?  There is no running away now, it is time.

There will be a potential explosiveness wanting to rise from the depths at times this week also.  Be aware of what is boiling beneath the surface of your mind and emotions.

Do your best to be in control of your expression of it.  Otherwise something may trigger its ugly expression, as you will lose control.

There is much beneath the surface that wants to come up to be expressed and dealt with now.

Then you can release it, let it go, purge it.  Do not judge it, just release it.  That will clear out inner blocks in your psyche, chakra system, and body, so you can move forward without so much inner baggage. Then you can reintegrate, re-center, and align with your Soul, Higher Self, and Universe.

Then on the 16th at the Capricorn  New Moon, there is movement forward, movement that is organized and under control.

That New Moon also opens up Winter 2018 Eclipse Season.  

The first eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo on January 31.  Then there is another eclipse:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

The Winter Olympics will be held in South Korea from February 9- February 25.

This is smack dab within the Eclipse Season, straddling the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 15th.

North and South Korea are planning to talk this week with one another, this week of seriousness.  This will be getting them ready for the Olympics in Korea, but also will assist the movement of negotiations between them on the nuclear issues.

I know this: If the USA goes ahead with military drills with South Korea this winter, there will be war. If they do not just postpone, which they are doing for the Olympics, but also cancel the drills, and North Korea stops doing nuclear tests; then conditions will be set for a more peaceful potential.

And you can also expect other difficult world situations to get more serious too now, like in Iran where massive protests have broken out, or in Israel/Palestine where Jerusalem has become an explosive issue.

And the explosive potential is there this week in the world and in our own emotional body.

This can be a very good week for setting a foundation or making grounded reality for your life and for what you want to build and manifest in this New Chapter of life.

All planets are now going Direct until March 8 when Jupiter goes Retrograde. So all systems are go now for building your new cycle of life.

Till next week,

Leo

Entering a New Chapter of Life and Astrology Forecast January 15-21.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we come down from the strong Cardinal Grand Cross Full Moon in Cancer last Thursday January 12.

But only one “leg” of the Grand Cross has left the powerful configuration, that being the Full Moon in Cancer.  The 3 legs that remain make a Cardinal T-square formation which has us pulled in 3 different directions instead of 4.

It is comprised of Jupiter in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn, and Uranus in Aries.  It will continue to be effective until late April, when the”orb” or distance between the planets gets too wide to be pertinent.

This T-square, still a very important configuration, will affect everyone to some degree; but its greatest impression will be with people who have planets in the middle to late degrees of cardinal signs:  Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.

This emphasis on cardinal signs, which are the signs at the beginnings of seasons, at the Solstices and Equinoxes, suggests we are moving into important times of New Beginnings.

Uranus in Aries suggests we are breaking out of an old way of being and empowering ourselves; Jupiter in Libra suggests a higher value of fairness and being relational; Pluto in Capricorn suggests we are transforming out of old soul-dead structures, and in the process of creating new ones.

Since those planetary placements form a T-square, what each placement represents is at odds with each other placement.

So it may be quite difficult to be free of old ways in a self empowering manner (Uranus in Aries), while at the same time able to be in meaningful relationship (Jupiter in Libra).  Or it may be difficult to break down and release old security structures (Pluto in Capricorn) and still be fair minded and balanced (Jupiter in Libra).

We are being pulled in different directions and it is challenging to stay centered.  It is best not to try too hard, and instead surrender to the process with trust in yourself and the Universe.

Also now all planets are going Direct until February 6, when Jupiter goes retrograde.  All planets Direct is a somewhat rare occurrence, and it also suggests we are moving forward into new beginnings.

On a global scale the Inauguration of Donald Trump is happening on January 20, and on the next day there is a Million Woman March on Washington DC as well as on state capitols and cities around the country.

This new era shows us a huge division between different cultures and ways of life in the USA and also in the greater world.

I believe we are about to go through a big storm that will shake things up in a big way over the next few years.

This storm will clear the way for the Age of Aquarius. For humanity it will separate the “wheat from the chaff” in an evolutionary process.

And it will open portals for more light to shine through so we can have a world of Diversity within Unity, a world run by Love and Truth, and a knowing the Universe is a place inside each of us that has all the dots connected in greater meaning.

We were born to be alive at this important time in human evolution on Planet Earth.  So find your role and place in it, and trust the Soul’s process.

Later this coming week there are planetary shifts that show us a turning point.

On Thursday January 19 the Sun moves into Aquarius, while the 4th quarter Moon in Scorpio squares it.

This signifies a movement into a greater darkening of the light of the Moon.  The Sun is shining in Aquarius while the Moon is showing us more darkness in Scorpio.

On the same day Mars in Pisces will be met with difficulty from Saturn in Sagittarius. Mars in Pisces seeks unity in deeper consciousness, and that will be inhibited by Saturn showing us what is happening in reality.

These events on the 19th open the way for the Inauguration on the 20th and the Million Woman March on the 21st.  These events represent the Sun square the Moon for sure, but also Mars square Saturn as unity is blocked by our current reality.

When this 4th Quarter phase of the lunar cycle is completed, we will experience a New Moon in Aquarius on January 27.

That New Moon in Aquarius will show us the first winds blowing in from the coming eclipses in February.

So we can consider Eclipse Season beginning on January 27, setting us up for the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10 and the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

Much will be shaken up during this coming Eclipse Season.  Change and transformation will be pushing through the blocks and impediments in our consciousness and belief systems.

This force will crack open what is stuck, so we can change our lives according to our Soul’s intentions.

In the greater world, the new Trump administration will experience during Eclipse Season  its first great challenges to what it intends to do.

And each of us will need to adjust to this New Chapter in our personal and global lives.

The Trump administration facing powerful backlash to its intentions is an integral part of this New Global Chapter of our lives.

And each of us will be challenged in this New Chapter to stay on our spiritual paths with our deeper values.

We cannot let the increasing darkness in world affairs sweep us into fear and hatred.

We must keep our trust in our deeper souls and the Universe, and our belief we are evolving into an Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Waving Goodbye to 2015 and Astrology Forecast December 27-January 2

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 26, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Next week on January 2,  I will do a forecast for 2016,  including the Presidential primaries and election.

For this coming week, which includes the last week of 2015 and the first day of 2016, there is not much planetary action.

We will still feel the effects of the Cancer Full Moon the weekend of December 26/27.  Then we move through the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Sagittarius New Moon on December 11.

At the New Moon in Capricorn on January 9, that lunar cycle willl end as the new one begins.

But for this week the Moon’s light begins to slowly fade away as the year 2015 fades away too.

Interesingly, the rare occurence of all the planets being Direct is now in effect since Uranus went Direct on December 25.

We have a very short window of all Direct planets, as Mercury goes Retrograde on January 5 and Jupiter goes Retrograde on January 7.

We have a mere 11 days of all Direct planets.

So you can use this time to get really clear about your self and your life.  You can feel more confident in your ability to transform and change your self and your life in a positive manner.

This all bodes well for this transition time between years.

But we are also in the waning half of the lunar cycle, at the end of the year, and many taking time off from work.

So the slowdown precludes much action forward being taken, but with the Sun in Capricorn now, we can get really clear about what intentions and resolutions we want to make for the New Year 2016.

You can know more than usual for this time of year, as the planets are all direct,  what course is right for you and how you can get there.

Venus moves out of deeply instinctual Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Wednesday December 30. So your heart can help you to find more inspiration from others through conversation, books, movies, etc.

You can also begin (Venus stays in Sagittarius until January 23.) to expand your relationship efforts to repair and heal.

It should be somewhat easier, while Venus is in Sagittarius, to see the bigger picture of relationship, and to be motivated to make relationship improvements.

2014 and 2015 have been especially powerful transformational years.

Our world is going through great growing pains,  and most people find it difficult to see where we are all going.

It seems so apparent to me that the old conventional world is breaking apart, especially so as people seem tired of the old ways that are no longer working for them.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders both represent a breaking down of old ways.  Trump has little respect for the American political system and little tolerance for, in his opinion, politically correct ways of being.  And Sanders wants to greatly transform the economic system into one more equitable for all peoples.

Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner is a potent symbol of old gender roles and identities being more blurred than ever. This phenomenon is happening all over America.  More and more people are questioning and experimenting with sexual orientations.

So called minorities in America will be the majority of peoples in 20-30 years, totally transforming our country.  Europe also is becoming more multicultural, and other countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia are beginning to open the doors for liberation for females.

Global Climate Change is being taken more seriously in our world which will change how we live our lives, build our homes and drive our vehicles.

The internet and computer revolution is putting out newer gadgets and electronic equipment that will further transform our lives.

The Middle East shows us great transformation of national, cultural, and religious paradigms- as Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and Islamic State are shifting national identities and cultural realities.

China and Russia are flexing their national and cultural muscles greatly, and further threaten the old power structures and paradigm.

Though some of these changes may be extremely difficult to see in a positive light, they are all part of the deep and vast changes we are moving through as we transition between ages and paradigms.

Just as in personal transformation, sometimes one’s outlook during the transformational process is dark, foreboding, and painful.

As one wakes up to new ways of seeing and acting, and as one releases the old ways of being; one then moves toward more light at the end of the tunnel in the transformational process.

So do your best not to fret too much or to get too much into fear or cynicism.

Much of the ugly stuff we are seeing now is temporary, as we cleanse our human condition in preparation for greater healing and an Age of Aquarius.

I saw a documentary recently about Viking invasions of England 1300 years ago.  There were brutal and ruthless rapes, beheadings, stolen lands, and killings. There were no modern conveniences and little true freedom and individual choices.  The Christian Crusades were also quite filled with horror.

Civilization in many ways has improved greatly since then.  Actually, on the contrary, it is arguable that in many ways we have become too civilized, too emotionless, too immersed in personal mental and electronic bubbles.

We are now at a true turning point in human affairs.  And as such we are hopefully questioning most everything, so we keep that which is right for our new world, let go of that which is no longer aligned, and create our new world together.

Nothing can hold back the tides of change that have been moving through our world.  But we have choice as to the quality of that change as we re-imagine, re-think, and steer our hearts in new directions.

Till next week’s Forecast for 2016,

Leo
