In the Middle of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and Astrology Forecast October 12-18.

I am leaving Italy today and feeling  very fulfilled from this 17 day trip to Europe.   As this voyage happened during Autumn Eclipse Season, with Mercury Retrograde,  there has been a significant shift in consciousness and a re-connection with my ancestral lineage in Italy.   Since the transformation of our global family will include big shifts in the power dynamics of the world, Western Civilization is feeling it’s effects.

Seeing the ancient buildings and long-time local traditions has brought a new awareness to my consciousness, as my American consciousness only knows 238 years of existence. Seeing alleys in Italy that have been used since before Christ helps me to know that people’s in the world value their heritage and take pride in their past and so love their land and culture.

The coming changes will not be  easy.  Many European countries are dealing with immigration from Africa and the Middle East, and trying to fit these very different cultures into their very ingrained traditional ways.   And China, Russia, India, Brazil and other countries are getting stronger and stronger.  And new global boundaries are being redrawn in the Middle East and elsewhere to shift our world into a New Age.

These lands I have been visiting are so beautiful and filled with such rich culture, and the future will have them learning to balance that rich culture with the tides of change into an Age of Aquarius.  And those tides are increasing their strength now during the Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

This last week the markets have been showing weakness, and this is only the beginning of the transformation of our global economy.   Here in Europe, and I know elsewhere, many local economies are very dependent on tourism, as so much money is spent in stores and  restaurants by tourists.  It feels much like consumption by gluttony at times and shopping seems to be a very high priority  for travelers.

As the markets dim and travelers’fear of terrorism and Ebola rises, money will stop flowing from tourism and local life in many communities will change dramatically.

We must all prepare our selves for radical change that will reconnect us to soulful human values.

All the personal and world events that have been swirling through our lives since the Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year are setting the tables for more and greater transformation for our world and personal lives.

We have entered an important new chapter in our lives now, on the way to an Age of Aquarius.  This Autumn Eclipse Season will be followed by a Spring Eclipse Season 2015.

These two seasons will bring big shifts to our world, and most especially to the child of Europe, America.

That is because the USA natal chart from July 4 1776 is being powerfully affected by these recent Eclipse Season.

While many are complaining about the lack of power shown by the USA in world events now, in the bigger picture the USA is beginning to join the world community in a whole new way, as more of an equal in a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius.

We are now smack dab in the middle of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014, between two eclipses and moving into the second half of this current Mercury Retrograde cycle.

On Wednesday the 15th this coming week, there will be a 4th quarter moon phase beginning with the Moon in Cancer.

It is time that day to get into one’s inner cave and to process the last few weeks.   We are preparing for a strong Eclipse on October 23, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in passionate and intense Scorpio.

It will be time for new beginnings, and the inner depths of our collective beings will be ignited and brought more to the surface.  Secrets, previously restrained emotions and memories will seek to be expressed and seen.

It will be time to speak one’s truth and let the process play itself out after that.  Mercury will stay Retrograde till the 25th, so till then let your mind and soul process the recent shifts before coming to conclusions or making big decisions.

Next week when I am back we will look more deeply at Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and it’s influence on our lives.

Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 Begins and Astrology Forecast September 21-27.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The winds are shifting this coming week and picking up strength, bringing us the beginning of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

We may begin to experience or at least feel these winds of change as early as Sunday when Mars squares Neptune.  Then on Monday September 22 at 10:29 PM EDT is the Autumn Equinox.

This year’s Autumn Equinox is more powerful then usual and promises a most intense Autumn season ahead.  That is so because Pluto will be changing directions from Retrograde to Direct less than two hours before the Equinox.

That means that Pluto’s energy and meaning will be a big part of what is felt and experienced surrounding the time of the Equinox.

Autumn Equinox is like the sunset time of the year, as the Sun is just beginning to come down for the year.    Light and dark minutes are equal at the Autumn Equinox, but right after that moment of equality dark minutes begin to increase as light minutes begin to wane.

The Yin energies get stronger, and colder darker times ahead can be felt.  And of course this is not just felt physically, as the holistic world we are in lets us know it is time to begin to feel more deeply emotionally and spiritually as well.

Since the Autumn Equinox also means that the Sun is moving into Libra for a month, we become more socially conscious and more relationship conscious at this time.  Our yang motivations to focus more on our self and our personal needs and personal growth are beginning to shift.

Now we realize and appreciate our needs to love and be loved, to make connection, to live more outside our personal bubble.  We may also, as is aligned with the coming darker and colder days, realize we need others in our life to feel truly warm and safe.

This year the Autumn Equinox may bring us to feel this shift more intensely and deeply, as Pluto is in the spotlight of our awareness.

Pluto, Guardian of the Underworld, brings up in a powerful way the “darker” feelings, thoughts, and secrets.  It sometimes quite powerfully or explosively brings up emotions or issues that we have suppressed and even repressed.

In relationship to others that means we may speak our minds in a more direct way, emotionally letting out that which we have previously held in.

In that process we are speaking our truth and hence empowering ourselves.  We may also be pushing the buttons of someone else and causing them to also say things in a more primal and direct manner.

This may cause a very intense and meaningful discussion that clears the air and either brings about a healing or more animosity toward one another.   Sometimes there is also a letting go of someone who is not right for you anymore.

In the greater world there is a possibility of a powerful world event around this time;  but if not now,  Pluto being a  part of the signature of Autumn 2014 promises us that important world events will happen definitely during the season at some time. The Middle East is still in the spotlight for potential events with Iraq and Syria, Islamic State and Israel.

This is a dark moon time early this week, bringing a New Moon in Libra on September 24 at 2:14 AM EDT.

After the lunar crescent is seen in the sky on the 25th, the energies of the New Moon in Libra truly take form. That means that words and intentions become more about “us” and “you” than “me” and ‘mine”.

It becomes easier to find connections in all sorts of ways;  and desires for beauty, refinement, and social graces get stronger.  Make sure, however, “not to give up the baby along with the bathwater”. That means you do not want to accommodate others so much that you are forgetting about your own needs.

Work things out with others now and truly listen, but make sure you balance that with standing your ground around your own integrity.  Pluto changing directions could cause some eruptions of “negative” emotions as part of the process of trying to work things out.  Libra usually brings more peace and harmony, but Pluto will bring more intensity than the usual Libra time of year.

Remember that Autumn Eclipse Season begins this week and it is just the beginning of a most powerful season ahead. There will be much movement soon in many ways.

Stuck energies do not stand much of a chance, old patterns will be challenged, new ways of thinking and acting will be breaking through.

You are in a New Chapter of your life, and whatever is in your life that does not fit into this new phase will need to be let go.  You may try to hold on, but that will only bring more pain and misery.

Though it may feel unsafe or insecure to let go, just allow your self to feel what it would be like to keep the status quo.  Would you feel trapped?  Would your heart and spirit be dimmed?

If what you are holding onto represents a disrespecting of your self, are you ready now to respect and love your self more by letting go of the old person or job or home or belief?

This could be a very important time this season to liberate your self from that which has chained your heart and soul and free spirit. It is time to move on.

To add to the shifting tides, Mercury will go Retrograde on October 4.  Then on October 8 is the first of two eclipses:  A New Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries.  This Eclipse makes a powerful T-square with Uranus and Pluto, bringing huge waves of healing and transformation.

Then on October 23 is a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio.    That Lunar cycle will take us to the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 22, a time when Autumn Eclipse Season comes to an end.

Saying Goodbye to Summer and Astrology Forecast September 14-20.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 13, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week brings us the last of summer and the last quarter of the lunar cycle that was begun at the New Moon in Virgo on August 25.

It is a week of feeling the endings, of grieving the past, of acceptance, of fixing and healing, of putting in order and preparing.

It may be easy to feel “down” this week, and it is OK as so many natural endings are occurring.  Yet we are also accepting this new chapter of life we have embarked on both personally and globally.

The Cardinal Grand Cross and the aspects that followed it this year have thrust us into a new world for better and worse.  Of course ultimately this new chapter is a stepping stone on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

But sometimes that may not feel so positive as there are obstacles on our path.   And making change is not always easy, even if we know it is change for the best.

So this week we pause before the intensity picks up appreciably again soon.

Next week on September 22 there will be the Autumn Equinox.  Then on September 23/24 there will be a New Moon in Libra.  And quite importantly add to the mix that on September 22, a mere two hours before the equinox, Pluto will be changing directions from Retrograde to Direct.

Pluto (“ruling” planet of Scorpio) changing directions not only puts its powerful and transformational energy in the spotlight at the turning of seasons, but it gives us a strong signal of what is to come this autumn.

Pluto is the mythological “Guardian of the Underworld’, a power that goes deep into the core of the inner world of mystery and brings up the shadows, and the secrets.

It represents also the more passionate and primal instincts of our human nature and when triggered can open up “Pandora’s Box” of previously suppressed and repressed emotions.

After the expressions of more primal emotions, there is a clearing and healing.  Then there is a transformation and a rebirth or renewal of life energy.

Pluto, as part of the “signature” of our Autumn Equinox this year, strongly suggests a quite intense Autumn Eclipse Season ahead.

This promises to be a most powerful Autumn Eclipse Season, mostly because Uranus and Pluto make another exact square to one another, and will help form with the Lunar Eclipse in Aries an important Cardinal T-Square formation on October 8.  Then that Lunar Eclipse will be followed up by a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio two weeks later, on October 23.

Life changing world events will again blow into our collective lives, and could begin as soon as the week of the Autumn Equinox when Pluto changes directions.   That week is the official beginning of the Autumn Eclipse Season.

The USA and President Obama have declared war on the Islamic State.    This will cause the already unstable and chaotic Middle East to get even more volatile.  There is no eradicating of an issue that is much deeper than the reality of the Islamic State.

Before long much of our globe will be involved in changing the borders and maps of this world.   In Ukraine/Russia there is a conflict around real estate and  allegiances.   China is now in conflict with the Philippines and Japan and Viet Nam around territories.  Scotland wants to secede from Great Britain.   Hong Kong and Taiwan are in conflict with China around independence issues.  Kashmir continues to be a bone of contention for Pakistan and India.

And there are other places around the globe where old boundaries for states are being challenged.  The most volatile region for changing of allegiances and borders has been the Middle East since the Arab Spring in 2010-11.

And now with Syria, Iraq, and Libya in such flux; and with Israel and Palestine fighting for land, there is no telling how the borders will be redrawn in the Middle East.

Keeping boundaries or letting go of boundaries. keeping the old or opening up to the new- these are themes that will continue in personal lives as well as in the greater world.

This is all part of the transition between ages, as the old paradigm and world are beginning to crumble.   There is a huge new balance of power forming, and old ways will die in the process.

The Powers that Be now, with the media also part of that old paradigm, will create stories that serve their interests and to which they truly have bought into.  And each culture within this old world will have their stories, based on a biased view of what is happening and who is “good” and who is “bad”.

But realize that the deepest and highest of truths are that we are entering a New Age and that the old rules and structures will need to be transformed.  What we rely on for our notions of “reality” are changing also.

And in our personal lives we have been leaving an old sense of what is “normal” for a new sense of normal, which will slowly form through time.  For now we are still adjusting to our own new world.

And even for those who have not had their outer lives change that much this year, there is still a sense for many of not feeling the same sense of “normal” inside themselves.  There is an uneasiness, a not knowing, a sense that big shifts in the greater world will also end up affecting their lives too.

It is best to find ways to ease ego controls and to trust more the Universe and our own deeper souls.   There are deeper realities at work that are bringing new light into our consciousness and souls.

That new light is meant to help us to evolve in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.  It can come through much more gracefully if we are not controlling its movement. Yes of course our egos are blinded by the light and afraid of the changing tides. That is what egos do.

But if there is trust in the bigger picture, the ego can give way enough to let light in while still feeling safe.

There is no force out to destroy you or your life. But there are energies that seek to break down walls of separation, separation from the wisdom of your soul, separation from the Universe, and separation from those who have love and truth to serve you with.

See you next week for the Autumn Equinox and hopefully with a new YouTube presentation for Autumn Eclipse Season.

Healing and Humbling on the Way to Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and Astrology Forecast September 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 6, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week the planetary highlight is  a Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces.   This lunation may bring in the first winds of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014, yet the official beginnings of that eclipse season will not be until the New Moon in Libra on September 23/24.

The Full Moon in Pisces this week is on Monday September 8 at 9:38 PM EDT.   The combination of Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces is usually very gentle and yin-like energetically.   There is a “coming down” into one’s body and soul,  a joining with the wisdom within.  This Full Moon in Pisces has a humility that comes with it, so any need to inflate one’s ego will get little support from the Universe at this time.

Pisces and Virgo have in common well developed sensitivity- Virgo more to the physical world and Pisces more to the emotional soul world.   Virgo wants a purity in the body and so is very sensitive to toxins and environmental stresses. Pisces picks up the moods and emotions of others quite easily and so is very sensitive to toxic emotions.

So it is advised to be aware of one’s body and feelings during the days surrounding this Full Moon.   This is not a time to be manic or even overly excited. It is a time to “check in” and be present to all that may be going on inside your self and around you.

The time of influence for this Full Moon is Saturday and Sunday leading up to the Full Moon, Monday the day of the Full Moon when there will be the greatest intensity of it,  Tuesday as it begins to subside, and Wednesday as its influence passes.

On Wednesday you will begin to feel more “active” energies as the Moon has gone into Aries that day. Be careful before Wednesday not to fall into any depressive attitudes.

To look into the eyes of what feels soulful and sad is OK and natural around this Full Moon, but make sure not to wallow in it or to develop a “story” that is based on old memories or patterns.

Remember also that this Full Moon is a kind of culmination, conclusion or climax from what was begun around the time of the New Moon in Virgo on August 25.

Getting things fixed or putting things in order,  going for checkups and maintenance, and focusing on details and mundane concerns has been a theme of these last couple of weeks of Virgo influence.  And this will stay a theme until the week of September 22 when the Autumn Equinox and Libra New Moon shift our attentions, and we experience the true beginnings of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

This year the Cardinal Grand Cross has brought our human family into a powerful new chapter in our personal and collective lives.  Our sense of what feels normal in our psyche and lives has shifted. The greater world also feels very different now, as we process the events in the Middle East, Ukraine, and elsewhere.

The Cardinal Grand Cross made a very close aspect to the USA natal Sun from July 4 1776, and it planted the planetary seeds of a vast transformation for the USA.

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on October 8 this year forms a Cardinal T-Square with Uranus and Pluto that is close again to the USA Sun and Saturn, bringing more large waves of change and transformation.

The USA is losing its status as Superpower and making its way into a more equitable role in the developing Age of Aquarius, which will form a world of Diversity in Unity.

There is a reworking of the balance of power in the world, and we citizens of the USA and also the Western World in general, are in the beginning stages of developing more collective humility.

It is apparent that a military macho hawkishness is developing in the USA and Western world as a result of the “terrorist” mentality.  There is an attitude that the enemies must be destroyed and that the “vermine” in the world need to be eradicated. Military Orkin needs to kill the dangerous pests that are growing stronger and stronger.

And it is certainly the case with a most ruthless and hateful group like the Islamic State, that a “knee-jerk” reaction is to want to kill them all to protect ourselves and our way of life. And of course we do need to defend ourselves against dangers to our existence. But if we do not get to the root causes of the problem, the same dangers will come back over and over again, each time with greater ferocity.

And just like in your own life when something threatens it with disease or rejection or abandonment or failure, you go deeper to find out why you are being challenged in such a way. Then you need to find meaning to it all, and find out what kind of healing and transformation is needed.

The world that we all have co-created has a foundation that is decaying because of a deficiency of love and truth, fairness and justice, equality and connection.  It is run by a paradigm that is not honoring our Earth and environment, not caring enough for those who have less and suffer, and not recognizing the connections and meaning that the Universe is fueled on.

The rulers of the Old World can only see life through the lens of power and wealth, and thus can only react with military power and an economic system that controls so much of the world.

What has begun to shift our consciousness and world this year will intensify during the Autumn Eclipse Season, especially in late September and October.  Greater changes are on the way.

There is no return to the old chapter of our lives, so we must now adapt to this new world, and of course adaptation is what brings evolution of consciousness.

In your personal life, the new chapter of your life is forming a bit more clearly now, but you are with the baby steps into this new chapter.

Autumn Eclipse Season will soon pick up the pace again, the energy field will intensify more, and we will be thrust more fully into this New World.  It is normal to grieve what will be no more, but it is becoming time to accept the reality of your “new season” and to put more of your heart into making it work and into it being more satisfying.

This week brings the humble and service oriented Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces.  Mars will be finishing up its passionate and intense journey in Scorpio on Saturday the 15th, when it travels into fiery, inspired, joyful, and adventurous Sagittarius.

This week also brings the 13th anniversary of the 9-11 tragedy in the USA and the USA Moon in Aquarius is being aspected by Mars in Scorpio at that time. Israel’s natal chart will also be triggered by Mars in Scorpio this week. Events concerning those two countries is more likely than usual this week, though not at all certain.

See you next week,

Leo

Circles and Cycles and Astrology Forecast August 31- September 6

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 30, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

 

 

 

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week is rather uneventful when it comes to planetary movement.    We will be moving into the second quarter of the lunar cycle on Tuesday September 2, a cycle that was begun at the New Moon in Virgo on August 25.

There is a need to put our lives in order now; to fix, heal, repair or mend whatever is out of balance, unhealthy or broken.  It is also a good time for maintenance or tune-ups of that which perhaps we take for granted will always stay well. It is a good time to “get back to work” or school and to come back to simple truths and more humility.

Please don’t let this need to get more grounded in reality take you to needless worry or debilitating fears. That will take you off your soul path and will only make your ego happy, nothing else.

Before the Autumn Eclipse Season begins, we are needing to build a foundation of order and practical wisdom first.  Then from that place we will be ready for the shake-ups of our status quo again.

As soon as next week, after the Full Moon in Pisces on September 8, we could begin to experience and feel the first winds of Autumn Eclipse Season blowing in.

Just as we are beginning to sense the coming end of summer as Labor Day beckons in the United States, we will soon feel those first chills from a powerful Autumn Eclipse Season coming up.

On September 18 I will create a new YouTube video that will get us ready for the eclipses, a Cardinal T-Square, and another exact Uranus square Pluto transformational event.  It will come out for viewing on September 20, just before the Autumn Equinox on September 22.

Spring Eclipse Season 2014, which contained the Cardinal Grand Cross and an exact Uranus square Pluto, brought a real shakeup of our lives, and signaled the beginning of a new chapter of our lives on Planet Earth, one ever closer to the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

I know many of you have experienced much change this year, being brought out of “comfort” zones, and awakened out of the slumber of old patterns, old stories, old attitudes and belief systems.

The ego will cling to what is familiar for as long as it can, and to what makes it feel like it is in control. But at this time in our human evolution on Planet Earth, we are being thrust into situations and events and mind frames that are helping us to let our deeper souls and the Universe do the steering down our life path.

This autumn you will be taken into experiences that are meant to help you to get on track for an authentic life, one that is not dominated by societal and family programming.

What we have come to rely on from our culture is not viable anymore.  The medical establishment, mainstream media, government, traditional religion, and other institutions are growingly toxic and dysfunctional.  If you put your reliance on them, instead of your own instincts, intuition, mind and heart; then you will not be taking responsibility for your own life and soul. And you will not be moving toward a more healthy and whole life.

Neither this country or your family or your religion or any other person knows what is best for you better then you- in your soul.  This country or the medical establishment or your employer do not own you. Nothing and no one can own you unless you let them. You have the ability to take care of your own life and soul in alignment with the Universe.

You must look for the signs and symbols and synchronicities, trust your Self and the Universe, and know that when you are so aligned you will be taken to just where you need to be and exactly when you need to be there.

Leading your life according to the rules or commandments may be a good idea for keeping you out of trouble, but not good if you follow them as your gods. Your free mind and heart and soul were created just right for you so you can know what is right and what is not.

It is true that we want to be a part of a larger community, but right now the mainstream establishment is not aligned with love and truth and fairness and justice for the most part.  You must go  to your free heart and soul and mind, unencumbered by the paradigm from a dying world and age. That free heart and soul will align you with the Universe and the natural transition into the consciousness for the Age of Aquarius.

That does not mean that you have to go it alone, without guides or mentors. But it does mean that you are trusting your self to take you to the right people who can help your journey.

Most people are still one of the herd in their consciousness, but more and more people are awakening and on the path of Self Actualization. That path shows us to our potential as aware, conscious, awakened individuals who care about each other, the Earth, and our evolution into a New World.   Many stewards of the old world, who are trying to hold up the old paradigm, are losing their grip on sanity.

The President of the USA Barack Obama tried to convince us this week that all the challenges in the world with the Islamic State and Russia invading Ukraine, is all normal and under control. It is nothing, he says, any different than the usual world challenges.

Well he is either in denial, trying hard to keep people from panicking, or smoking crack.

If you look closely at him, you can see how beaten up he is with the hard core realities of being with so much responsibility at this time on the Earth, while in such a “dog eat dog” paradigm.

Out in the Middle East and elsewhere, it is getting so complicated, so difficult to know who are “friends” and who are “enemies”.  And of course the whole ‘good guys’ versus ‘bad guys’ paradigm is bogus. In the cold ass world of politics and power and wealth, it is more about who is providing you with what you want and who is not.  Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein were once allies of the USA against peoples they wanted defeated, then became enemies when they no longer served our interests.

This whole paradigm needs to die so we can rebuild into an Age of Aquarius.

It is best now not to try to figure out how that will happen. It may seem impossible to left brain logic.

But life is not all logical and straight forward.  It is also a Great Mystery and circular as the Sun and Moon appear to us, and cyclical as the planets and seasons.  And as such, we need to trust that mystery and the circular symbols of wholeness, and to get into the river of deeper consciousness.

Trust that flow and trust your inner guidance to take you to just where you need to be and when.  And trust that as you get to and own the place in consciousness evolution that is the Age of Aquarius, that you will have arrived to meet your community and new world.

See you next week,

Leo

Not Fearing Fear Itself and Astrology Forecast August 10-16

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 9, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

This last week, with an emphasis on Scorpio and Leo energies, was very intense.   An important message to be taken from those energies is to live in the moment in your heart and with your passion.

Scorpio and Leo will continue to be important energies this coming week, as Venus will join the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter in Leo, while Mars and Saturn continue in Scorpio.

Venus leaves safe and nurturing Cancer for creative, playful, and ostentatious Leo this Tuesday August 12.  Your heart will seek to open more and to express itself more spontaneously.  Relationship orientation will want to be leaving co-dependent ways and to experience more genuine expressions of open hearted love.

Before Venus enters Leo on Tuesday, there is a Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius on Sunday August 10. This will bring a culmination or climax or perhaps some resolution to what was begun at the Leo New Moon on July 26.  As we have stated before that New Moon initiated a new chapter in our lives after the Cardinal Cross shakeups.

Now at this Full Moon we can intend to gain more perspective and understanding of that new chapter and hopefully more acceptance of it.

The roar of creative expression for living an authentic life (Leo) meets the social needs of the world around us at this Full Moon in Aquarius.   Can we take our true self into the world and fit in, or do we need to adjust our needs or at least our presentation in order to relate with others.

This Full Moon, which is at 2:09 PM PM EDT Sunday August 10, seeks to balance our self focused inclinations with our social consciousness.  So we may also be more motivated to find and express what we idealistically seek for the world we live in.

On Thursday Jupiter will make aspect to Neptune, so surrounding this time we have greater opportunity to open to spirit and soul, to more magic and synchronicity, to deeper and higher levels of consciousness.

On Friday Mars in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.  Surrounding this day the emotional intensity level may increase even more and world conflicts may get more intense as well.

We have all entered a new chapter in our human lives on Planet Earth since the important Cardinal Grand Cross and Eclipse season earlier this year.    Our consciousness is shifting and changing this year in big ways.

Transformation of consciousness is the most important part of the foundation we are building now to support our entry into the Age of Aquarius.   Uranus square Pluto is the main motivator to change our consciousness now; and as those two powerfully transformational energies were part of the Cardinal Grand Cross this spring 2014, we are experiencing huge waves of revolutionary and evolutionary instigation.

In the mid ’60s Uranus was conjunct Pluto, and of course that was symbolic of the huge tides of change just beginning then for the ’60s and ’70s revolution and evolution.

Civil rights issues dominated that time period and African Americans and women were screaming for liberation from an often controlling and demeaning society.   A spotlight was shone on a society that programmed its citizens into robotic allegiance to its dictates.  Wars and global capitalism were challenged and protests and civil disturbances broke out as efforts to change the world.  There were movements to break down old gender roles and to liberate us from emotional and sexual repression.

In those processes of transformation, marijuana was an important way for many to break out of consciousness boxes, to break away from stuck mind and heart chains, and to breathe the fresh air of new ways of thinking and feeling.  Psychedelics were also part of that process of breaking down old ways and opening up to new ones.

Now we have again faced civil rights issues, and minds have been opening for the plights and rights for gays and lesbians over the last few years .  We are again wanting to break away from the controls of the programming from society, from unjust and horrible wars, from a Global Corporate and Governmental Dominance that is making our human experience more toxic than ever.  And now marijuana is legal in some states and will probably in time become legal most everywhere.

This is Uranus and Pluto roaring once again and promising to bring even greater tides of change than the ’60s and ’70s.

Back in the ’60s people sang and celebrated the “Dawning of the Age of Aquarius”, and now it is much closer to our collective doorstep.   The roar of its power is permeating our collective consciousness, our world events, and our personal lives.

But now the forces of repression are stronger than before. Back then the Vietnam War was ended and the Nixon presidency came down, in large part because of the power of the people who were under the influence of Uranus/Pluto and waves of transformational energies from the approaching Age of Aquarius.

The so-called Military Industrial Complex is much more powerful than before and now so many of the young people in the USA (who were so instrumental in the ’60s changes) are now seemingly dozing to the lull of computer sights and sounds.

But nevertheless we are all being awakened now and sometimes that awakening is taking the form of world or personal events that shake us up so we will have a deeper look at our lives.

On the world stage we see the massacre of innocent civilians in Gaza on our TV screens, we see more needless world conflicts and fights for land and resources and power, we witness Corporate and Government controls taking away our freedoms, we see institutions that can no longer be trusted to serve our best interests.

Monsanto has such control of the food industry and our elected officials as they deny us even simple labeling of food products so we can know what we are eating.  The NSA spies on Americans and who knows how much of our information is available through the internet.

Our elected officials are bought out by all sorts of monied interests, apparently also true now of the Judicial system and highest courts who now have decided that Corporations are people. And of course Israel has a powerful influence over our foreign policy decisions.

The turmoil that is here now in world events and in our personal lives is meant to be a catalyst for change again, as they were back in the ’60s and ’70s.

But now we are closer to the true dawning of a new age, and it will take even more powers of transformation to assist us in our evolution.

So if at times now you are feeling like you are going crazy or you are overwhelmed by the emotions flooding you and events that seemingly have no solution; trust the process operating deep under the surface.    Try to open your mind to new ways of looking at situations, people and yourself; learn to not judge so quickly; do your best to summon up empathy and to look at both sides of an issue.  And do your best to surrender your ego now to your authentic soul self, the part of you that holds the wisdom you now need.

Do your best not to freak out at what is happening in the world or in your personal life.  Trust the Universe and its inexorable movement into the Age of Aquarius. Trust your self to know what to do and when, to be guided to people and situations that are just right for you at just the right time.  Stay out of debilitating fear or you will lose your way.   As FDR so famously said, “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself”.

There is an Autumn Eclipse Season beginning in September, before the first of two eclipses on October 8. We will write more about that in later installments of Perspectives from the Sky.

See you next week,

Leo

Better Navigating Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast June 1-7

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on May 31, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we continue through the lunar cycle that began last week at the Gemini New Moon.    So Gemini themes continue to be important:  learning, thinking, communicating, delivering and collecting information, socializing.

It is a good time now to take new classes or even just learn new things in any way that happens.   Gemini is about sharing information with others, taking information in and delivering information out.  There are no judgments in such sharing, no conclusions needed.  There is a satisfaction in learning and in gaining new facts

Gemini is not always concerned in how the information is being received and so it can seem insensitive, when in actuality it sees its “job” as merely to objectively state the facts.   It can be like a pure journalist, one whose job is to just objectively state what happened, not judge or give opinion.  That can seem cold to those who are more feeling oriented.

For instance if one asks a pure Gemini to describe how someone else looks, the fact stating Gemini may say “brown hair, blue eyes, thin legs, big feet and ears, large belly”.  It is merely stating the facts.  More sensitive people might feel embarrassed to hear someone say they have big feet and ears and a large belly.

So some Gemini’s need to learn to filter their natural way of communicating in order to not hurt people’s feelings.  Finding work or activities that appreciate their objective minds and communicating styles would be good for them.

Now sometimes Gemini can get so filled with information and have so many different thoughts or activities to work through that it gets scattered or confused or spacy, not grounded.

But usually it is so bright and aware, curious and questioning, needing more and more puzzles or intellectual challenges.

Speaking of mental workings and communication, the “ruling” planet of Gemini, Mercury, will be going Retrograde again late this coming week.

Next Saturday June 7 at 7:56 AM EDT Mercury will go Retrograde. It will stay that way until July 1 at 8:50 AM EDT.

Mercury is the “ruling” planet of both Gemini and Virgo, and as such can be driven by details, by needs to “figure it out”.

This Mercury will go Retrograde in Cancer, but will actually spend most of its time in Gemini.  And the Sun will be in Gemini also during much of the time Mercury will be Retrograde.

So be careful not to get overwhelmed with details, mental anxiety and stress, and obsessive needs to figure everything out.   Left brain ways of operating will not be as effective as usual, and events may come into your life that strongly suggest you use other means of effectiveness.   If you can meditate more, use your imagination, your intuition and creative thought, then the Retrograde period will be easier. If you can trust your heart more or at least learn to make better relationship between heart and head, then you may be gaining a lot during the Mercury Retrograde period of time.

Mercury Retrograde is not a time to be superstitiously feared or dreaded.   It happens 3-4 times a year and is a part of the natural process of planetary movements.  It is not meant to bring pain or suffering.  Instead it is meant to help readjust our thinking or communication, to shift our perceptions, to give pause to what we have previously decided or to a belief or attitude that no longer serves our soul’s journey, and to trust our hearts and the Universe more.

Sometimes we are so stressed to figure something out so we can fix something that is not working for us in our life, or so we can make a decision that is weighing on us.   We want the stress and anxiety to go away, so we want our answers fast.

But Mercury Retrograde often teaches us that issues need to unfold, that time needs to go by, before an answer is revealed. We learn it is not about our mind figuring out an answer, but instead it is about a process that needs to unfold before clarity can be found, before direction can be seen.   Our soul knows there is magic in the unknown, and allowing a process to unfold brings us that which cannot always be seen by our logical mind.

If I am given a choice between choosing a job at Wendy’s or one at a local department store, I may go back and forth with the pros and cons of each and end up not knowing which is best. I wrack my brain trying to “figure it out”. I stress and get much anxiety forcing my brain to come to a decision, when in actuality neither one feels right to me.

So I let it go, trusting the answer will come to me at the right time. may even go past the time I was supposed to make the decision.

You know those times when you try so hard to remember someone’s name or where they live or some other detail, and trying so hard with your brain just does not bring an answer. Then you let it go, and half an hour later the name or address just comes into your mind without you trying?

And other times, maybe during Mercury Retrograde, you go back and forth straining your brain trying to choose between that Wendy’s or department store job, and all you do is stress with no answer.

Then you let it go, and reflect and meditate and go into your heart.  You allow yourself to wait and trust, to trust your deeper soul, your heart, and the Universe.

A letter comes in the mail a few days later accepting you into a school you had forgotten you had applied to 6 months ago as you had figured you were not accepted.

Your true answer did not reside in the two options you were considering.   This is a potential value to Mercury Retrograde.  You may find it difficult, but it was meant to help you change your perception, to help you learn to trust your deeper soul and the Universe more.

Now of course every Mercury Retrograde does not always bring such treasures, but it will usually help you to shift your perceptions and perhaps even some rigid paradigm you may be clinging to.

These times now are bringing such rapid shifts of consciousness and change, and it is best to be flexible and open. And most of all it is best to stay awake and aware, present and accounted for.   Judgment of your self is not good, but being honest with yourself, holding your self accountable, and wanting to transform the old and toxic patterns is good.

In the greater world important and transformational events will likely begin mid June as Mars reignites the Grand Cross from April, and then events may get even more powerful in late July and August. And then there will be another strong Eclipse Season this autumn 2014.

And keep in mind that on Friday June 13 there is a Full Moon in Sagittarius: Friday the 13th Full Moon.  That will be a most auspicious time to honor the Feminine, the mysteries and beauty of the Feminine, the energies bursting at the seams of our collective human consciousness, ready to help our world evolve and heal.  More on that next week.

You are moving more and more strongly into your authentic soul self, more and more strongly connected to the Universe and the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo
