Love and Truth and Astrology Forecast April 23- 29

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Aries New Moon on March 27.

Important events that could lead to more explosive events erupted during this Aries lunar cycle.

Russia, Iran, North Korea, United States, Syria, and Israel are all very triggered by these recent events.  Actually the whole world may be affected ultimately by these events.

So during the 4th quarter we review what has happened during the Aries lunar cycle, and get ready for new beginnings at the New Moon in Taurus this Wednesday April 26.

What has opened up for you personally since March 27?   What are you needing to move into more fully, or move on from? What still needs to be healed and transformed?

Mercury is still Retrograde and Venus was Retrograde during much of this lunar cycle, till April 15 when Venus went back Direct.

What has been happening in your important relationships?  Have you been taken back to old patterns you thought you had moved beyond.

Do you now have more clarity about those relationships?

If not keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde until May 3, when it goes back Direct. Total clarity may have to wait until then or more likely a week or so after it goes back direct.

Big decisions that will importantly affect your life would be better off waiting until then.

More pull to “how it used to be” may continue for you.  Do your best to resist feeling your old reality is your reality again.

You may be revisiting old places in your Old Chapter of life, so you can better know what your New Chapter needs are.

There is a process of integration of the past going on, so you do not forget “where you came from”.

There will be a feeling of moving forward more at the New Moon in Taurus on April 26 at 8:16 AM EDT.

Taurus takes in, manifests in reality, and then holds onto tightly.

So whatever was begun during the Aries lunar cycle will tend to take hold after the Taurus New Moon.   If that which began in the Aries cycle has no real “life” to it, it will not take hold.  It will not be made manifest.

Looking at the recent world events, look closely at what has unfolded from them, especially after the New Moon on the 26, and even more so after Mercury goes Direct on May 3.

Are those events merely the past coming back for a look-see again, or are those events more indicative of what is truly brewing in our world.

Taurus is fixed Earth and when it grabs something it does not let go.

So if you have started something recently, if it is aligned and alive, the Taurus New Moon will tend to make it more real and grounded.

Taurus likes to make things more secure and comfortable.  That is why money and other resources like real estate are under the umbrella of Taurus.

Taurus is the Earth and our earthly bodies.   It wants to let us know that our bodies can be a pleasurable experience, and it does so in part by enlivening our senses.

Tasty and healthy food therefore is important for Taurus as a result.

During Taurus time we also can usually calm down from the fiery energy of Aries. Everything seeks to slow down and relax.   But you may then feel rather bored if you seek a lot of passion and intensity.

Those recent world events that brought conflict will now either calm down appreciably or be made more real and manifest.

This summer, especially near the August Eclipses, we will experience the fallout from some of the recent events.

We are truly in a new zone now and sometimes you will feel confused or “out of sorts” and unbalanced.

Your body may go through some temporary shifts too,  shifts that feel like you might be sick or that something might be wrong with you.

Let whatever it is play out to see if it stays or not. In most cases it will be temporary, as we are all being shifted in our minds, souls, and bodies by new energies.

Stay open and present as much as you can now.  Realize old wounds and traumas may tend to be triggered, so please do your best to not be carried away by overreacting.

These new energies want to move into you, and when they confront the blocks in your system, the ones that developed from your old wounds and traumas, they may trigger old reactions.

Remember that these old traumas can be transformed.  You can then see that what has happened to you in the past can be a motivation to empower yourself, to improve yourself, and to have empathy for others who have suffered.

You may have been victimized but you are not a victim.  Victim consciousness disempowers people and is part of the old age, not the new age.

Everything that has happened in your life is meaningful and meant to help you to transform and evolve, and to potentially assist others who have been suffering.

The more explosive world events that are coming are part of the process too, as Nature has earthquakes and tornadoes and tsunamis.

Life will go on, and an Age of Aquarius in dawning.  The transition will be better if each of us stays aligned and lives their life according to the nature of the Universe.

Love and Truth are the pillars that hold up the divine realms of the Universe.  Allowing them to be an integral part of our Earthly life paradigm and the Age of Aquarius is quite important now and going forward.

Each of us can make strong intention to let those values be the engine of our life, not materialism, greed, or power.

Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created recently- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2WIRHQ5IQ

Till next week,

Leo

Moving Through the Retrogrades and Astrology Forecast April 2-8

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on April 1, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we moved forward after the Aries New Moon.  That New Moon signaled to us the reality that it is time to move on.

The old era or chapter of our lives wants to be in our life’s rear view mirror.  On a deep energetic level we have moved on and moved forward.

But for some there are still issues to be healed or resolved.

And with Venus still Retrograde, the direction of certain of our relationships may not be totally clear yet.

And to add some more confusion, next week Sunday April 8 Mercury will join Venus in Retrograde.

Retrograde means things we need to pause before we can know what to believe or what to do.   During Retrograde, so many “re’s” are activated:  Re-flect, re-wind, re-turn, re-negotiate, re-do, etc.

So with both planets going retro, we will have much more ability to be reflective and to rewind into our past.

What makes it all complicated is that the New Moon in Aries, as we stated, is driving us to move on and move forward.

And energetically it has happened. In many ways we have gone over the hump to the other side.  No more fence sitting.

But we still need more clarity and direction around some issues before we are ready to completely move forward into this new chapter of our lives.

Venus retrograde suggests we may have relationship issues to heal or be resolved or at least to be seriously recognized as real and needing work.  

Venus is not only about relationships but also about heart values,  security values, body issues, and real estate issues.

Venus is the ruling planet for both Libra and Taurus.  So any of those Venus issues can be in the spotlight of our lives now.    Going back in our minds to old ways of relating to security or body issues may also be happening for us during Venus Retrograde.

For women Venus Retrograde can also be about being a woman and what kind of woman one wants to be.  In its current retrograde pattern, Venus began the retrograde in Aries, suggesting needs to be empowered, true to self, and assertive as a woman.

Men may be experiencing their closest female mates as aserting their power more now. And their own “inner female” may need to be activated now.

Venus Retrograde moves into Pisces late on Sunday April 2, so issues around being giving, being other worldly, being surrendered and more mystical take hold.

So balancing the giving surrendered urge (Pisces) with the urge to be emboldened and empowered (Aries) may be challenging as a result of these planetary movements.

After April 15, when Venus goes back direct again, these issues should get more clarity and be ready to move forward with the other parts of us.

Relationships and communication are needing the most attention during the retrograde periods.

So Venus and Mercury will both be retrograde from April 8- 15.   There may be more confusion than usual around thinking, relating, and communicating then.

There will be more clarity after April 15 when Venus goes direct, then even more clarity aftter Mercury goes back Direct on May 3.

So we pause in some ways from totally moving forward till after that time.

So as we nevertheless continue to move forward now,  since the Aries New Moon, we actually pick up some speed as we go into the second quarter of the lunar cycle this coming week.

We continue moving forward in the waxing half of the Aries New Moon lunar cycle until April 10 at the Full Moon in Libra. Then the waning downward half of the cycle takes over.

So this week we continue moving forward in our new chapter, even while we still heal and resolve some issues during retrograde time.

And this week also brings Saturn going Retrograde on April 5/6.  When Saturn slows down to stop and turn retrograde, its meaning and energy get more priority in our lives.

Saturn is a contracting and limiting energy.  It gets us to stop and be more grounded, to wait and be more cautious, to set goals, to discipline, plan, and accomplish.

It also gets us to have more boundaries, to say no, to take responsibility, to do what we must do.

And it also rules endings and commitments too. Remember Saturn is about what we are limited in doing. Both endings and commitments give strict limits.

So this week is a good week to face up to what is real for you now.  Reality needs to be recognized and honored.  Acceptance is a key to this week.

Though some Venus and Mercury relationship and security issues of many kinds may need to be worked out, in most ways the “writing is on the walls” for what is real for you now.

And the Trump administration is real now in all our lives. That is not going to change any time soon.

Where we still have options is in how we relate to that reality.  How do we want to respond to that reality?  What values will we fight for as a result of that reality.

How will we handle our security issues and our issues of empowerment and self assertion?

How does this new reality affect our relationships? I have seen some families and friendships break apart because of the differences in political opinions.

Do we respect those who disagree with us enough to keep the glue of that relationship.

Or is the difference in core values too much to bridge to keep the relationship connected?

So you can see how a person can know they are in a new era of life, but still have some relationship issues to work out.

All people have personality or character traits that are diffcult for their partner.  So then we need to weigh which ones can be lived with and which ones cannot easily be tolerated.

And of course we need to dig deep inside to see if there is enough love to be able to live with someone who has these traits that are difficult to accept.

And yet some traits cannot be tolerated no matter how much love there is, no? How about physical or verbal abuse, or addiction? Should anyone put up with those traits even when  “in love”?

When we get into mid summer 2017, at the next Eclipse Season, which will be more powerful than the last, we will need many of our relationship and security issues to be resolved enough to be able to receive the awakening light, love and truth wanting to come through into our hearts and minds.

So now we clear up the blocks in our minds (Mercury) and hearts (Venus) during their retrograde periods, so we can better handle and let in those gifts later.

Till next week,

Leo

Spiritual Soul Journey and Astrology Forecast May 10-16.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 9, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The intensity of Spring Eclipse Season 2015 is winding down.  On Monday May 11 we move into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Aries on April 18.

It is time to look around at your life and your inner world and to see where you are at now.

Look at your life now from a more common sense and practical viewpoint.    What is working and what is not working for you?

What still blocks your ability to move more fully forward?    What inner tapes and programmed messages hold you back?  What past traumas and hurts keep you from trusting?

You can use this last quarter Moon phase to see how your life is settling as the dust clears from the recent shifts and changes.

Next week there will be a New Moon in Taurus on Monday May 18.   And Mercury will go Retrograde that same day, and stay there until June 11.  Then after the New Moon in Gemini on June 16, and after Mercury goes back Direct on the 11th,  there will bring more active and alive energies for moving forward again.

World events, directly related to the shifts during the Eclipses this year, will then erupt again.

Three important Middle East events during the Spring Eclipse Season this year were the election of Bibi Netanyahu in Israel; the nuclear agreement between world powers and Iran; and the civil war in Yemen that brought in Iran and its foe Saudi Arabia.

The issues from these events will go to a new and more serious level later this spring and early summer.

Netanyahu has put together a small but extremely militaristic coalition government in Israel.  It is quite arguably the most conservative, anti Palestinian government put together in that country.    And its opposition to the Iran deal brings much danger for war.

The nuclear deal with Iran needs to be finalized by the end of June this year.  There is much opposition to this deal among Iran’s hardliners, American hardliners, many Sunni Arab governments and of course Israel.

And in Yemen the Iranian backed Houthis who performed a coup of the previous government are fighting against Saudi Arabia, which has invaded Yemen.

Add to this the grave problems in Syria and Iraq with ISIS and Al Queda and it is obvious that we are at a big turning point in the Middle East.

And after Mercury goes Direct and there is New Moon in Gemini, we can expect events to erupt in the Middle East and elsewhere.  Yet the time period to be especially aware of in regards to Israel and the Middle East will be late July/Early August.  

Saturn in Scorpio will be going Direct then as Jupiter in Leo makes square to it.  Israel’s Natal Mars placement in Leo will be almost exactly made conjunct by Jupiter and squared by Saturn at that time.  There will also be a Full Moon in Aquarius around the same time.

For now, however, we go through the waning 4th quarter phase of the Moon this week.   Shore up the practical foundational elements of your life in anticipation of more transformational change coming soon.  More grounded, common sense ways of being and thinking are aligned now.

This week, besides moving through the 4th quarter moon phase, we see on Monday that Mars leaves earthy body centered Taurus for thought provoking Gemini, where it will stay for until June 24.

Mars in Gemini is very active, inquisitive, and mercurial.   You will want to find more interesting pursuits, learning opportunities, and generally fast forward movement.

Mars opposes Saturn in Sagittarius mid week, so fast forward movement will be frustrated by the contraction of Saturn.

And of course we will be moving through a 4th quarter Moon phase this week and Mercury Retrograde next week, so it is a better time for planting Gemini idea seedlings than to blast fast forward with certain plans.

Whatever ideas are planted in your mind this week may need a few weeks to germinate before certain knowing of direction.

After Mercury goes back Direct on June 11 and then there is a New Moon in Gemini on June 16, it will be time to move forward with ideas and plans.

Transformational change does not happen in a straight line of goal setting directness.  It happens in a more circuitous manner, where the mystery of deep seated soul intention plays out in its own way.

Transformation is a process of letting go of that which has died in spirit and allowing for new energies and forms to manifest.

We cannot rush the process, yet we are best served if we get out of the way of the energies that want to move through us.

Those new energies bring to us what we need in our transformational journey.   Change does not always arrive in the manner or form that we intended, but the essence of what we need is always brought to us.

When intention is made to the Universe, it is best to be in true relationship with the Universe like you would with anyone or anything.

The Universe is not an extension of our relationship with mom or dad, and so our past disappointments with parents cannot rule our transformational consciousness.  And sometimes people will make demands of the Universe, telling it they deserve good things because they have been a good person or paid their dues or some such.

But transformation is not for good or bad people but for all souls.  We do not get we want because we were a good or bad girl or boy.

Transformation is more about cycles, endings and beginnings, karma, and attracting to our selves that which is based on how we are vibrating, so to speak.  Our belief systems, our attitudes, our energy, our soul’s frequency, determines the quality of our transformation.

Our best intention to make is probably one that asks to have happen what is in the best interest of all concerned.  And we very likely cannot determine what that is- but the Universe can.

You can know what is no longer aligned with your soul’s journey, and you can know what in essence you need to move into now.  But you will be frustrated if you expect a perfect anything or anyone, or if you make material concerns your highest priority.

We are all on a spiritual soul journey which requires material support, not on a material journey that requires the support of spirit.

till next week,

Leo

Honoring the Body of Life and Astrology Forecast April 26- May 2

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 25, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Relative to the high planetary intensity over the last 6 weeks or so, this coming week should be rather mild. Keep in mind, however, that the Aries New Moon of April 18 was the gateway to coming events connected to all the intensity of early spring. More powerful world events are on the way soon.

Last week, after the Aries New Moon, the dramatic world events were mostly connected to Mother Nature’s upheavals than human caused ones.

There was a volcano that had a huge eruption in Chile that affected the air quality as far away as Argentina.

And there was a 7.8 earthquake in Nepal that has killed over 1500 people so far.

It is not a disconnected coincidence that Earth Day was Wednesday, set in the early days of Sun in Taurus this year.

Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign, and so the volatility of the recent planetary movements has caused breakups of the Fixed Earth energies through volcanos and earthquakes.

We usually talk of the human dramas in relation to the transformational movements of the planets. We have written about the Middle East and China and the world economy for instance, and how we can expect big changes in those areas, changes that are helping to usher in a New Age of Aquarius.

But our relationship to our environment in connection to climate change is also important.

I certainly do not know for sure how much climate change (which is very real) is being exacerbated by human influence and how much it is going to happen with or without human influence.

I do know however that this changing of ages is not happening in a vacuum. The transformation of our world into an Age of Aquarius is happening holistically, on all levels- physically, emotionally, spiritually- to our human family directly and to the Earth home we all live on.

The natural disasters will continue this spring and autumn as a segment of the events that are meant to shake up our world and awaken us to new energies and light that are necessary for ushering in a New Age.

Some believe the Earth is angry at the human family and that natural disasters express that anger.

Others believe that the energetic shifts that are happening during this transitional time on Earth are what cause changes in consciousness, human lifestyles, the environment, and the grids and structures of the Earth.

I believe that our human family needs to conscientiously hold ourselves accountable for what we have been doing wrong; and to take more responsibility for the health and well being of our Earth, its environment and its creatures; and the human condition.

I do not believe, however, in an angry male God or mother Nature that punishes us for our transgressions; but I do believe in Karma (or you reap what you sow). And I do believe in the law of attraction, which simply means that I attract to myself that which resonates with my soul condition, and my beliefs and attitudes.

We are in transition now between worlds, ages, and paradigms. And so it is very important what we now do with our minds, souls, spirits, and bodies.

We are releasing the programming of an old paradigm and age, and letting go of the beliefs, attitudes, and life choices that result from that programming.

As we let go of the old, we open more and more to what we need to become in order to adapt to a changing world.

Adaptation is instrumental in evolution. And now that our human family is so close together through international commerce, mass transportation, and global communication; we need more than ever to evolve.

And now that so many cultures and countries have built or are developing weapons of mass destruction, we need more than ever to evolve.

And now that there is such intolerance and even hatred toward those from different races, genders, sexual orientations, religions, cultures, and lifestyles; we need more than ever to evolve.

And of course the changing of ages demands evolution to consciousness, beliefs, and lifestyles aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into.

We must most importantly learn deep in our hearts, souls, and minds that we are one family of Earth beings. Yes we are each unique, but we share the same human needs and human desires and emotions.  We need to relate to one another as equals with similar needs.

We are taught math, science, and language in school; but do we know how to make relationship with others, how to have empathy, how to understand those from other cultures and ways of being. Have we learned to seeks win-win relationships with others instead of winner take all?

Do we know how to understand that all humans are created equal and deserve to be free. Do we know that there is no need for some to be grossly rich while others starve? Do we know that none deserve privilege because of what family or circumstances they were born into?

Do we know that the Universe has enough love for all to partake in or that truth is available for those who want it. Do we know that fairness and justice is the way of the Universe?

Do we understand we humans block our own way to these Universal riches and that some God is not responsible for our lives, our happiness, our good and bad fortune or the state of the world.

The Age of Aquarius demands that we, through our connection to the spirit and soul of the Universe, are responsible for our selves, each other, the Earth, and our well being?

Do we know there is no one coming to save us or to hold for us the spiritual values that the world and our souls need?

We can each integrate the Christ consciousness of compassion and empathy. We can each integrate the peaceful and meditative heart and wisdom of Buddha consciousness.

“We are the ones we are searching for” and that is the foundation of a healthy Age of Aquarius.

This coming week we continue to ground our lives in the fixed Earth that Sun in Taurus signifies. Taurus knows that our bodies are the temples that hold our souls and spirits and that how we treat that body is so important. It knows that our Earth home and its beautiful nature provide us what we need if we show it the love, respect and attention it deserves.

A healthy body and healthy Earth are the foundation for a healthy life. Our bodies and the Earth body are to be enjoyed also.

Taurus rules the senses, so allow your self to be more present now with the sounds, sights, tastes, feels, and smells all around you.

You are now finding your bearings and sanity from all the recent changes. You are grounding into reality the recent surges of change recently.

Soon new waves of change will roll in, and many new world events are on the way.

But for now find as much peace and comfort as you can. Later on May 3 is a Full Moon in Scorpio, then soon after on May 21 comes the liveliness of Sun in Gemini

And May 18 will also bring the always unpredictable Mercury Retrograde.

Till next week,

Leo

Letting Go of the Shore and Astrology Forecast April 12-18

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week may move slowly at first, as we move into the last quarter Moon in Capricorn Saturday April 11.

The last quarter phase of the moon is by nature a time to wind down, process, integrate and prepare for new beginnings at the New Moon.

This current last quarter phase is especially important as it finishes up the lunar cycle begun at the Spring Equinox/Solar Eclipse New Moon day of March 20.  That lunar cycle then continued into a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on April 4.

That Total Lunar Eclipse included within it Uranus and Pluto and formed a meaningful Cardinal T-square.

So now at this last quarter lunar phase, we put an end to a most powerful and transformational cycle of time.   We need time to process what has been churning in our consciousness and lives this lunar month, so we can be ready for the strong new beginnings later this week.

On Saturday April 18 at 2:57 PM EDT there will be a New Moon in Aries that will thrust us forward “ready or not”. Events will open up in our lives after this New Moon.

New Moons always signify new starts or beginnings and Aries is the perfect sign for new starts, as it is the sign that initiates springtime here in the Northern Hemisphere.

Aries thrusts forward as buds bursting through branches. It is like a baby taking its first steps, like a pioneer exploring new territory, or like an athlete or warrior fighting to survive.

So after a most important early spring, when issues in our consciousnesses and lives have been stirred and awakened, when we have been made more aware of what needs to be released and what needs to change; we are ready to get moving forward with our lives in new ways.

So use the early part of this coming week to work through issues, or to tie up loose ends, to complete, to resolve, to fix or to let go of what needs to be released.

Anything you are still holding onto- even just a little- is a sign you have not fully embraced the change.

This week Thursday April 16 Pluto changes directions from Direct to Retrograde.   That means the energy of Pluto will permeate our energy fields and consciousness.   Pluto, God of the Underworld governs the part of the transformational cycle that intensely brings issues up to the forefront of our consciousness.  It then helps us to release the old fecal matter of our attitudes and beliefs, and then also helps us to be ready for a new birth- from the ashes of the old.

As Pluto changes directions this week, you are more able to confront what needs to be confronted and to finally let go of what needs to be let go of.

For those of you who are clinging to that last bit of something, afraid to let it totally go for whatever reason, you will have help to fully release.

And as you do let go, you will open up the space for something or someone new to arrive.  Yes you may be holding on because you are OK with “the devil you know” more than unknown new territory.

But it is time now for our whole human family to leave the old polluted ponds of our consciousness and lives and to enter new but unknown waters.

In the greater world we are about to experience world conflicts larger than we have experienced in at least decades.   After the New Moon in Aries, we will be more ripe for world events that will be a direct result of what happened earlier this spring during the eclipses and Uranus/Pluto.

The Middle East will be an important catalyst for these conflicts. It is not mere coincidence that during this Spring Eclipse Season Bibi Netanyahu of Israel was re-elected;  there is a new formation for a resolution on Iran’s nuclear program; and a civil war erupted in Yemen, one that also includes the military and political agenda of several other nations.

There is an old world wide paradigm that needs to be let go of, one that encourages separation and disconnection, meaninglessness, and a dog eat dog fight for who wins at others’ expense.

This old paradigm has created weapons of mass destruction, an unfair economic system that encourages greed and despair, relationships based on lack of trust, and lives that often feel empty and alone.

We all too often look for who is better than whom, which then translates into my family or country or religion is better or worse than yours.   And of course faulty egos are built on the judgments of someone being worse or better than someone else.

These programmed judgments keep us beholden to old Gods and testaments that keep us stuck in a world that has in essence already died.

The New Gods of an Age of Aquarius show us equality, liberation, Diversity within Unity, and connections to our authentic individuality and a worldwide web of unity.  Love and Truth are re-membered as our true Universal Mother and Father.

Now as we approach this Aries New Moon we can truly be ready to move forward into new horizons of our life journeys on the way to the Age of Aquarius.  

As you are letting go of old baggage, you will become lighter and more free, more connected to your true soul self and the Universe.

And this New Moon in Aries, as it follows a most important Spring Eclipse Season and the last exact Uranus square Pluto aspect, turns on the ignition and starts driving the vehicles for real change, not just change in our imaginations or minds.

Use Pluto and the last quarter lunar cycle to release your fingernails that are still clinging onto the dock at the shore of your life.  Trust the waters of the Universe and your own innate wisdom to bring you to the right places and people at the right time.  Let go.

This week is a turning point in leaving behind the Groundhog Day repeating patterns and obsessive thoughts of your life.

The Aries New Moon this week shows us the true end of winter in our minds and souls.   We can leave the depression and gloom and open our hearts to the flowers of spring and the winds of change that will set us free.

See you next week,

Leo

Welcome to Spring 2014 and Astrology Forecast March 16-22

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 15, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

A bit earlier than I anticipated, the winds of the powerful April planetary configurations are already blowing through our emotions and lives.

Many are already being taken out of their usual equilibrium, and being challenged to respond to the difficulties being presented to them.

It is time for all of us to “raise our game” as we will be surfing higher tides of change.

April 15 brings us the 1st of two eclipses, a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.   On April 29 there will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus.

And from April 19-23 there will be an exact Cardinal Grand Cross, pretty much right in between the eclipses.

I expected us to feel and begin to experience the intensity after the New Moon in Aries on March 30, but now as we approach the Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo Sunday March 16 And Spring Equinox on March 20 there is already evidence of cosmic power.

Of course 3 legs of the 4 legged Grand Cross are already in close orb with one another: Jupiter in Cancer; Uranus in Aries; and Pluto in Capricorn, forming a Cardinal T-square.  In April they will get even closer in orb to one another, as they all go into 13+ degrees of their respective signs.  Then the 4th leg joins for a Cardinal Grand Cross when Mars goes to 13+ degrees of Libra.  And this happens in the midst of Eclipse Season in the month of April.

Our collective and individual lives are getting stimulated to evolve and progress.  And in the process our “weaknesses” are being poked and prodded, being brought forward in our consciousness to witness and work with.

For instance if you have a deep wound about abandonment,  circumstances may ensue that remind you of that wound. You then have the opportunity, perhaps after some distress around it, to see that wound in a new light, and to work to transform how it operates in your consciousness and life.

If you are tempted to go to old patterns of beating yourself up or losing trust or letting fear take over, you can stop the downward slide into pits of emotional suffering and instead rise to new levels of awareness and personal evolution.

We are all moving into a New Chapter of life on Planet Earth, an Age of Aquarius.  And at times when planetary power increases as it will be this spring 2014, energies are being spiked so we can grow into the consciousness and lives appropriate to the New Light of a New Age.

But the process is not always easy, as is usual with births of all kinds.  We are often faced with our demons and doubts, experience grief and regret, anger and fear.   We learn to release as well as we can these old programs and habits, and open to trust what is coming on our path.

After the New Moon in Aries on March 30, we will be more in outer action mode, new beginnings more fully being experienced.  What is happening now is merely a prelude or preparation before the action picks up in April.

The Full Moon on March 16 at 1:08 PM EDT is the annual Pisces/Virgo Full Moon.   It is a Full Moon that seeks to assist us in letting go more fully of our egos, and instead embrace our surrender to the Universe and own our path of service.

There is also a balance sought at this Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo between the unseen spiritual/soul/emotional plane and the tangible/material/scientific plane.. For instance,  your illness is a result of the germs you picked up, but it is also a result of some psychological/emotional need you may have also.  You perhaps got sick because you need to slow down and nurture your self and also because you picked up some virus or germ.

That is the balance between soul oriented Pisces and physically oriented Virgo.

What they both have in common is a need to be humble and submissive to something greater than one’s ego.

So use this potentially healing Full Moon to be more receptive to what has been or will soon be coming your way.   We often have little control over what comes our way, but do have the ability to respond in a beneficial and healthy manner to what we are given.

Trust that what is best for your soul’s journey is coming your way, even if it is not what your ego would choose.  Or as the Rolling Stones say, paraphrased, “you can’t always get what you want, …….but you get what you need.”

Also most importantly this coming week, on Thursday March 20 at 12:57 PM EDT there is the Spring Equinox 2014, Sun going into Aries.

At Spring Equinox dark and light, yin and yang are equal.  But right after that moment of equanimity, Yang and Light energies begin to gain in strength. This moment is like the daily sunrise moment. It is time to energetically shift our of winter’s slumber, wipe away the dust from our eyes, and begin to embrace active energy again.

Aries is the force of buds coming through tree branches; a new baby’s life; a teenager’s movement into puberty; a pioneer’s finding a new path; a person’s courage to stand up for what they know is right; a statement of “I AM” what I AM, and proud of it; a frank and straightforward expression; self assertion; taking care of one’s own needs; and needs for independence. It takes courage to truly be alive, to not just coast through life, and Aries is that fire of desire to survive.   Aries can also be competition and battles or war.

In the greater world the balance of power is shifting.  The USA is in the crosshairs of the Grand Cross this spring.  Its natal Sun is at 13+ degrees of Cancer and exactly in the Cardinal Grand Cross pattern.

What is happening with Russia in Ukraine, in Iran, with Israel and the Palestinians is all coming to a head. Expect new and perhaps explosive events to boil over. These events and a shaky recovery from the recession of 2008-09 could blow up the markets soon.  Natural events could also be powerful this spring, like earthquakes, etc.

These expected shakeups of the structures that govern the world of societal programs and paradigms will clear the way for new lights of awareness to come through our lives and consciousness.

The way we were programmed to see truth, the way we were programmed to view those who are “different” from us, the way we were programmed to behave, the way we were programmed to close our hearts and minds for the good of the “rules” for living; all these are ripe for powerful transformational change.

We are learning how to see the truth, to react with love and compassion, to learn better ways to live than what has been programmed into us; while at the same time learning to be safe and secure and fit in as best we can.

Now with the power of Spring Eclipse Season upon us, we will be taken out of our familiar comfort zones and asked to “raise our awareness”, release what is ready to die, and enter new zones and chapters of our lives.

The spike in intensity, healing, and transformation this Spring Eclipse Season 2014 should be even more powerful than other recent Eclipse Seasons.

See you next week,

Leo

Resolving Past Abuses and Astrology Forecast for March 25-31.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we continue in the retrograde zone, as both Mercury and Mars are retrograde- Mercury until April 4 and Mars until April 13.  Though the Spring Equinox and strong Aries New Moon this past week brought us much fiery spirited energy; nevertheless, we remain on hold until after Mercury and Mars go back direct.

Especially since the weather here and in many places was warm and summer-like as the Aries new Moon burst upon us, it felt at times like it was time to get our lives pushed forward.

And yes some people have experienced some true new beginnings this past week with the Aries New Moon.  But overall many of us are still in waiting.  We still need to ponder our lives more, to go deeper to decide what we truly want, or where we want to go, or what we really want to do.  Some things may still not be clear yet.  Some answers have simply not appeared yet.

And wracking your analytical and logical brain to find an answer will not work well. You need to wait for things to unfold, to have trust that what you need will appear at the right time.

Remember that during Mars and Mercury Retrograde, we are often taken into old zones of experience.  People or memories from our past come back. Old issues resurface that we may have taken for granted were OK now.

Look at some of the issues that have come into the spotlight in our society lately:  Women’s rights and African American rights.

These were issues that dominated our experience in the ’60s and ’70s and remained important issues long after that time period.  Remember Rodney King in 1992?

But recently, especially since Barack Obama became president and Hillary Clinton almost became president, many had begun to assume that the problems of women and blacks had faded into our cultural rear windows.

Now during this recent retrograde period, we have been dealing with Rush Limbaugh and his degrading comments toward Sandra Fluke concerning contraception.  And the murder of Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood guard in a gated community in Florida, has reopened old wounds for African Americans.

Regardless of the facts in these cases, what is important to take in is the rage this has been aroused in women and blacks.  Do you really believe they are enraged because they are entitled children having a temper tantrum?  I believe many people whose consciousness is rooted in 1901 believe exactly that.

Perhaps women and blacks are enraged because recent events show them that many people are still filled with prejudice and bigotry and want women and African Americans to “know their place”.  They still believe in old stereotypes from long ago, that were not true then either.

Women who want to have sex are sluts?  Black men who dress in certain ways, like wearing “hoodies” are criminals?

Yes women and African American have come a long way since the ’60s.  But events like these recent ones make them feel like nothing has changed. And do not be surprised if justice is not served in Florida for Trayvon Martin, that there will be riots again in the street.

Look at reality.  Women are still sold all over the world as sex slaves and prostitutes.  And our prisons are unfairly over inhabited by black men.   White collar crime and drug use by wealthy people is more excused by society.  Poor people in general and black men more specifically are profiled as criminals in our society.

Much more transformation is necessary to bring the equality that is aligned with being in an Aquarian Age. This retrograde period is bringing to our consciousness the inequality still experienced by members of our society.   Keep in mind that these guardians of the old world, who are rapidly becoming dinosaurs, will fight to keep their privilege and power. But they are doomed by nature and our progress into an Aquarian Age.

In your own life, what issues are coming back to you during this retrograde period?  Are there family or relationship or home or career issues that need to be resolved?  Do any of these current issues have ties to old experiences that were never quite resolved?

Is your current relationship challenge tied to a childhood experience or other relationship from your past? Is it tied to something from the current relationship that was never really solved? Is a problem with your career connected in any way to problems from your past?

Dig deeper to find the links and connections.   You are getting ready to let go of an old pattern that is holding you back from progressing with your life.  As we finish up this current retrograde period, you will find more clarity.  And we will get more clear about what we really want, what action we need to take, and where we need to go.

And then soon we will experince the eclipses, which will accelerate the speed of change. There is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini on May 20.  And there is a Lunar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius on June 4.  Gemini and Sagittarius represent free mind and free spirit respectively. Mind, intuition, inspiration, and spirit will be ignited. New ideas and creative solutions will be readily available then.  What has been held back will be set free.  There will be less control and the gates of increasing chaos will be opened.

Uranus will be making its first square of Pluto in June also. This highly transformational planetary duo will ignite change as they did in the ’60s when they were conjunct one another. They will continue to be in square to one another for a few years.

And also in May this year, synchronizing with the eclipses, will be Venus Retrograde.  So though Mercury and Mars will be back direct by then, the “matters of the heart” that Venus represents will be in reflect and rewind mode.  Relationship issues will be in the spotlight, as will be women’s issues, and issues of love and trusting Love spiritually.

This coming week enjoy the added energy and desire for action that the Aries New Moon last week stoked in us.  But remember that “all systems are not go” for a while longer.    Do not push the river of life to go faster than it goes naturally, as that will not work.

See you next week,

Leo
