A New Normal and Astrology Forecast November 23-29.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Earlier this morning of Saturday November 22 2014 at 7:30 AM EST there was a New Moon in Sagittarius.  It is truly on the cusp between Scorpio and Sagittarius, though certainly Sagittarius.  It was at 0 Sagittarius 07.

If you have been in a depression or in a funk or just feeling kind of down or negative, this New Moon in Sagittarius should give you a spark of renewed life and maybe even joy.

This fiery New Moon turns the ignition for the new chapter on our lives,  post Autumn Eclipse Season.   With all the important and powerful planetary movements in 2014, including the most important Cardinal Grand Cross,  this is a very meaningful time period coming up.

That New Moon ignition starts our journey into a “new normal” as the old sense of “normal” is dying to leave our consciousness.  Stop trying now to go back to how it used to be.  That chapter has closed and pushing against locked doors can only cause stress, frustration and exhaustion.

Since this New Moon is truly on the cusp and thus does include some Scorpio influence, we can expect the remnants of the past to cry for attention.  Do you truly need to still find resolution or healing from what has happened in the past?   Or is it time for those traumas and ghosts of the past to just be released, to turn your back on them even if not 100% resolved or healed.

If those old wounds just bring you more drama without satisfaction, over and over again; then it is time to just release and trust a better chapter is on the way.

Yes trust and faith are important now as we enter Sagittarius territory.  You will have the fires of inspiration and meaning at your disposal now. Just open your mind and heart for them and they will be there.

Please keep in mind that the true new lunar cycle begun at this New Moon in Sagittarius is not energetically alive until after the first sliver of lighted Moon can be viewed.   So that will happen either tonight or tomorrow night.  Afterwards the light of initiatory fire will be lit and events that are natural to occur in this New Chapter of life will erupt.  In the meantime it is a good time to meditate or pray, to use visualization and make intention.

In the greater world, the Cardinal Grand Cross and associated planetary movements this year brought with them Islamic State; Ukraine/Russia crisis; Ferguson Missouri racial tensions; Israeli/Palestinian violence;  immigration bill standstills in America; the Ebola virus becoming serious; and attempts to solve the crisis with Iran’s nuclear program.

These events are all important in ushering in a new chapter of global life, a new normal for world distribution of equality and power, and a stronger road forward to the Age of Aquarius.

Though it often seems we are going backwards, and deeper into “us versus them” hatred and violence; we are instead breaking down the old structures and beliefs that keep us stuck in the past.

The old establishment is fighting for its life to keep alive the “old normal”, but this cannot last except on life support systems that will eventually fail.   So many more people now are awakening to the dysfunctionality and toxicity of that old world.

All these powerful events that have erupted this year show us how much we  are all connected all over this world, and only by realizing this and working together can we create a new world.   It is the “us versus them” mentality that breeds hatreds, bigotries, and feelings of superiority or inferiority.

Whether we are talking about Ebola or immigration or Ferguson Missouri, etc.; it is the sense of being unified in one big family that will save us.   Aquarius is about community based on accepting and honoring the distinct individualities of humanity.  Diversity into Unity is the Age of Aquarius.

So this week after the New Moon, many of those world events that broke open into our awareness earlier this year will find direction forward this week after this Sagittarius New Moon:

President Obama just took executive action to push the immigration issue forward.  The fallout of that will begin this week.

Ferguson Missouri is on the verge for this coming week of having the Grand Jury determine if police officer Wilson will stand trial or not.  Potential riots and protests loom.

The deadline for Iran’s nuclear talks to be resolved is Monday November 24.  How that turns out is extremely important in Middle East affairs.

Russia has just brought its troops back into Ukraine and it is likely something will happen after this New Moon there.

4 Israeli/Americans were killed by Palestinians this past week and the mood is in a tinder box of intense emotions now.

And it is also likely that events surrounding the Islamic State will come alive this week.

And your personal life is also ready now to move more fully forward to a new future, a new Chapter of Life, a new normal.   This current lunar cycle, begun at the Sagittarius New Moon of November 22, inspires us to have the faith to take new adventures.

This new lunar cycle lasts until the Winter Solstice on December 21, which is also the day of the next New Moon, which will be in Capricorn.  During this now current lunar cycle we will encounter the powerfully transformational Uranus/Pluto square on December 14/15.

So we can expect an eventful and meaningful time period ahead.  Keep your head and heart, as much as possible, awake and alive to the “new normal”, not the familiar though dying “old normal”.

This year has caused major breakdowns of that which held up the structures of our “old normal” so we can begin to embrace a new chapter of our lives. This does not mean that the old chapter was necessarily bad or good.  It just means that the cycle of our life is turning to a new season, and acceptance is helpful to us.

Accepting this reality is important to your health and your personal evolution.   You are leaving old ego dramas that keep you a victim and/or keep you from the authentic being you are ready to more fully embrace.  You are on this Earth for reasons other than doing what you are supposed to do and then dying. Oh and taking vacations and playing with toys to take off the pressure.

You are a soul in a body, on a meaningful journey on this sacred Earth and in this Universe of cycles, symbols and synchronicities.  You are returning to Love and Truth, the reasons why life exists at all.

Till next week,

Leo

Down to Earth and Astrology Forecast November 2-8

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 1, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Both eclipses from Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 have now passed.  Mercury is almost back to its normal Direct speed, after having been Retrograde for most of October.

That high level of intensity that Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 has brought to us is somewhat subsiding as we move through the Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus this week on November 6.   But we have not completely finished the passage of this Eclipse Season yet.

Yes I  know many of you are getting planted in this new chapter of your life now.   All the powerful planetary movements this year have thrust us into new zones of consciousness and life.

Maybe, however, you are still procrastinating on decisions that need to be made; or still delaying talks with others you have been putting off; or not yet jumping forward into what is right for you now.

For many Autumn Eclipse Season took care of that, and events motivated you to let go more fully of what needs to be released.

The time we are moving into soon, as dust settles from the power of changing winds, is mostly for putting into reality what needs to still be made manifest.

And Mars in Capricorn will help you to do that for the next 5 weeks or so while it stays in Capricorn.  

But the Sun and Venus and Saturn being in Scorpio now will keep you in deeper emotional and consciousness waters, swimming through to the corners of your mind’s stagnant pools.

Those often abandoned thoughts and feelings from our past want to revisit our waking minds in order to find closure or healing.

Revisiting and hopefully closure and healing from past hurts or traumas is often a prerequisite for full entrance into new chapters of our life.

Keeping that old baggage locked up threatens to damage your new relationships and endeavors later in this new phase of your life.

There will be some help soon to break open the locks and chains, as Mars in Capricorn will be triggering the immensely important Uranus/Pluto square late this week and especially next week.

In that regard Mars will make exact conjunction with Pluto on November 10 and exact square with Uranus on November 12.  The days surrounding these planetary aspects should bring greater intensity and winds of change again.

These new winds will help to shake things up again and thus to loosen or break any chains that still bind.    That loosening or breaking will help you to make more firmly the decision you are waiting on, or to be more confident what you have already done or plan to do.

Then after November 22 at the New Moon in Sagittarius, you can feel the fires of new adventures and new inspirations burning.  Taking the leap will be easier then.

Then on December 15 the second to last Uranus/Pluto square is exact, showing us even more transformational movement.

And then on December 21 is the Winter Solstice, more powerful than usual as it forms a New Moon in Capricorn that day when revolutionary Uranus also goes direct.

World events have been very significant this year, threatening “business as usual” in America and the world.   Islamic State, Ebola, Ukraine, and Israel/Palestine events this year are instigating disruptions to the status quo security structures, and promise world changes that will eventually transform the world we live in.

As the economy also transforms, we can expect a New Age in Aquarius to bring us a world of greater equality and fairness,  renewed love and truth, and a world structure based on Diversity in Unity.

There is obviously much work and many great awakenings to be revealed in order for that New World to become reality.

This past week there were a few serious mishaps in our skies.  A rocket taking off from Virginia with the intention of supplying a Space Station exploded and crashed, and a Virgin Galactic rocket meant to be a test case for space travel for the general public also crashed and burned.

Gravity is having its way now as Capricorn and Pluto are the strongest energies.  Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which rules gravity; and Scorpio is ruled by Pluto which rules the underworld. And most of the planets are in earth or water signs now, not fire and air.   So the pull is down and in, not up and out.  Yin is stronger than yang.

Add all that to the fact that our old world’s paradigm and priorities are shifting.   Our desires to keep finding our answers “out there” is dying.  Our needs to go inward and yin-ward and to take care of our human family and its creatures here on Earth is getting stronger and stronger.  We do not need to keep conquering anymore.  We need to be more in touch with inner values of caring and healing.

The Bear is a symbolic animal to keep aware of now.  Look for its presence in your awareness now. It signifies protecting and caring for what we already cherish, and stopping the energies of constant driving toward material gains and greedy behavior. Here locally in Maine it is time to protect our Bears from more abuse through our vote this week.

Our Earth is where we live, and she needs our care and concern and love. Our Mother needs us to be aware of her needs, not to take her for granted anymore.  Going to other planets may be fine one day, but right now we need to take care of home and its inhabitants. The message now, especially with the rocket crashes, is to “come down to Earth”.

The Full Moon this week is Thursday November 6 at 5:23 PM EST.     It is formed with the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus.   This is a dance primal passion (Scorpio) and earthly security and calm (Taurus).    These are both fixed signs and both desire to hold on and not let go. Scorpio holds onto feelings and emotions, especially ones that have come from hurts, rejections or betrayals.  Taurus holds onto physical possessions and people. Each is stubborn in its own way.   Be careful not to get into any tugs of war this week with others.

This Full Moon is one that also seeks balance between keeping the calm order and letting in passions, intensities, and disruptions.

Afterwards it may feel like a turning point to ending the Autumn Eclipse Season, but remain aware that there is more to come this autumn.

See you next week,

Leo

Seeing Clearly as Mercury goes Direct and Astrology Forecast October 26- November 1

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 25, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Though we just passed through the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on Thursday, which is the last eclipse of this eclipse season, we will remain in the throes of the intensity for some time longer.

Since the next exact meeting of Uranus square Pluto is not until December 15, we can expect Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 to extend through to the Winter Solstice, a longer than usual Eclipse Season.

There is a turning point in the process now, however, as Mercury is going Direct pretty much as I write this forecast, on Saturday October 25 at 3:17 PM EDT.

So as the Scorpio Solar Eclipse has just passed, and Mercury goes Direct today, truth is an unavoidable reality.

Scorpio plows right down into the core of truth, the deeper truth that can free us from our chains of egoic control.

And Mercury now going Direct after 3+ weeks of being Retrograde, gives us the beginning of finding the light of clarity at the end of the dark tunnel of unknowing.

It may take a few more days to a week before we are totally confident we are seeing and thinking clearly, and before we can truly accept on a deeper level the truth that has revealed itself.

This year, since the Cardinal Grand Cross of spring, we have been thrust into an important new chapter or phase of our lives.  Events, awakenings, and realizations have shown us a dying past, closed doors of that which is not aligned with our authentic soul self, and open doors and windows bringing the fresh air of new ways forward.

And this current Autumn Eclipse Season, while Mercury has been retrograde, has forced us to look deeper for truth in order to find clear direction forward.

And what matters is what is on our true soul path, a path that is aligned with the connections showing Oneness, while at the same time the truth of who we each really are in essence, with no more lying and trying to be what we are not.

This turning point now to more clarity and truth is a difficult one for some, as there has been an avoidance of letting go of that which they have been holding onto so strongly.

Life support systems onto co-dependent relationships or empty security structures will no longer work in our hearts or lives anymore.

But this is no time to rush forward or be impulsive with our actions.  We can spend a bit more time processing before we know for sure, and when we do act and make decision, we can do that in a thoughtful and deliberative way now.

Mars moves out of fiery and expansive Sagittarius this Sunday October 26 and into grounded and real Capricorn, where it will stay until December 4.  This will help us to face and make real and to manifest that which was previously merely an idea or inspiration.  There is no more running away. It is time soon to do what needs to be done.

So this coming week may bring more clarity and direction, but for some also a more sobering look at one’s life issues.

And on Friday October 31 is Samhain, the ancient predecessor and inspiration for Halloween. It is a sacred turning point that is approximately half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.

And our more deeply “tuned in” ancestors experienced the fact that the veil between worlds is thinner around Samhain.   You may hear or “see” spirits.  You may catch glimpses of spirits out of the corner of your eye now.

And if you do ritual to honor ancestors, you may be able to contact those who have left their material bodies.

Then on November 1, also known as All Saints Day in Catholicism, we get ready to turn back our clocks.  We will then experience shorter days of being awake while it is light outside.  And temperatures are getting colder.

This prompts us to look within more, as the outside is not so appealing for many.  Christ said that “The Kingdom is Within” and so  now we can move more in that direction, the direction of the “unknown” and mysterious, but also the direction of soul unity and connectedness.

And as we recognize the inner kingdom and experience the love at the heart of that kingdom, we know that whatever events are erupting in the greater world can be seen and felt through the frequency of connectedness.

Yes this last week, as there was a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, brought us many very dark events:  A “terrorist” attack in the Canadian Parliament.  Another violent attack in a high school just outside Seattle, an ax attack on police in New York, serious riots in Jerusalem, and a killing of police in northern California.

Add these to the Ebola scare, Islamic State, a volatile stock market, etc. and it would be easy to get into fear zone.

Scorpio brings up the shadows in individuals and in society, so we can then deal with our demons, release toxic energies and patterns, and look for ways to transform our lives.

In the greater world, we are having lights shine on our shadow demons, on our mistakes, on our karma.

The Islamic State is not mainly about religion, but about power and about old grudges and injustices from the past.

The killing sprees in schools and other mainstream venues show us what needs to be addressed in our society.  Issues of guns, mental health, and of a general decay in society need to be addressed more seriously. These cannot be solved by people who are wanting to satisfy political agendas, but by people who want to end old patterns that destroy our human family and Earth and its creatures.

We are living out a paradigm of separateness and “every man for himself”, of his family or country or religion.  Evolution now is dependent on seeing me and mine more inclusively.  My family is all of humanity.  That consciousness of oneness is mandatory if we are to evolve our consciousness into an Age of Aquarius.

Though this movement into an Age of Aquarius is part of the natural cycles of Nature and the Universe; nevertheless we choose what that means for our human family here on Earth.   Do we as a collective transform our consciousness and lives into one of seeing all as equal and developing a Diversity in Unity world with Love and Truth as our foundation to build on? Or not?

We are at a crossroads now, over the next year or longer.  Events will take us more to “the edge” so we can know deep in our souls the reality we are facing, the consciousness we need to attain, the lives we need to live.

And our next spike of intensity will be early to mid November, as Mars in Capricorn triggers the Uranus/Pluto square. That square will be exact again on December 14/15, just days before Winter Solstice.

As you get more clarity now and over the next few days after Mercury Direct, commit your self more deeply to your spiritual path and your personal evolution.  We are All in this together, whether we acknowledge it or not.

See you next week,

Leo

Bursting Forward into the Future and Astrology Forecast September 28- October 11.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We let you know last week that the Autumn Equinox this year, with Pluto changing directions, would be more intense than usual and would likely include powerful world events.

So the USA began a bombing campaign in Syria that day against the Islamic State.   Pluto going Direct on the Equinox is part of the planetary signature for Autumn 2014, and promises a most important and intense autumn ahead.

There will be a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on October 8.   And since transformational Uranus and Pluto will join that Full Moon Eclipse to make a Cardinal T-Square, we can expect a very strong time period ahead.

I am in Italy now writing this Forecast, and next week I will likely be out of internet reach for my usual Saturday blog entry on October 4.  I will be in Italy still on October 11, and at that time I will likely be able to write my forecast for that week ahead.

Then on October 18, just before the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on  October 23,  I will be back in New England and putting out my regular blog entry from back home again.

So this entry is for the next two weeks, from September 28- October 12.

I assume much will be shaking up during that time, especially after October 4.  On October 4 Mercury will change directions from Direct to Retrograde at 1:02 PM EDT.  It will not go back Direct until October 25. Pluto and Uranus will also be triggered that day, so more intense energies will be opening up around that time.  Mercury will be Retrograde during both eclipses as the second eclipse is on October 23. It will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio.

Four days after Mercury goes Retrograde on October 4, there is the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on October 8.  It is at 6:51 AM EDT.

So as usual Mercury Retrograde will bring a shift in energies of mind and communication.  Perceptions change, sometimes very subtly at first, but once it has been going on for a awhile you know things seem “off” or different.  Best not to try to “figure it out” too much.  It is better to trust the unfoldment of a situation rather than to over analyze. Remember that the left brain is not moving in its normal way, but more creative, intuitive, imaginative functions ate better.

It is also good to be in reflective mode, not in a rush to judgment.    Sometimes equipment, especially communication type equipment, can have breakdowns.    People from one’s past often come back in one’s life during Mercury Retrograde, or at least they tend to come back more strongly in dreams or memories.   Making big decisions or signing important documents is not advised unless necessary.

And with the Eclipses happening at the same time, things may seem very out of the ordinary.    Everything may not be as it seems, so trust the process, let everything play out before jumping to conclusions or being impulsive or emotionally reactive.

During the month of October, or even a bit before, shifting tides will help you to release what needs to go, and to open up to new light, ideas, and inspirations.   You can be taken out of any ruts you may be in, and have the opportunity to shift your attitudes or beliefs.  Old patterns can be transformed, healing is easier to access.

World events should intensify greatly during Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.  The war on the Islamist State will intensify.  Issues with Israel and Iran may break open.  The economy may face new shocks in October.  Issues with Russia may intensify.   And other important global events may happen also.  The Middle East is in the process of great transformation, with more and more chaos engulfing the region.  It is getting more and more complicated there, and allegiances are always shifting.   Eradicating the “enemy” is impossible and the bombing in Syria and Iraq is only stirring up a hornets nest of world violence.

The first eclipse, the Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries is a Cardinal  T-Square  makes close aspect again to the USA Sun and Saturn from its natal chart of July 4 1776.    The USA over the next year will be going through much important change.

It is in the process of losing its Superpower status, and becoming a more equal member of the world community.   Military and Economic challenges will greatly affect the USA over that time period.

The Aries Full Moon Eclipse Cardinal T-Square will tend to bring up issues about independence versus making relationship.  Also issues around empowerment and self assertion are likely to come up.  Do your best to balance your own needs with the needs of others during this time period. You may be pressed to make improvements in that area of relating.

Remember you are breaking out of old programming that limits your ability to actualize your authentic soul self and to find more purpose and satisfaction in your life.    During this Autumn Eclipse Season you may become more aware that you have been trying to be someone you are expected to be instead of being true to your self.   Begin or continue to let go of people who you have developed unhealthy dynamics with.   In some cases you will be able to work out these dynamics with others and transform how you relate with them.

There is nothing to freak out about during this Eclipse Season. The best way to look at it is to see that movement is necessary now in order to align your self with the waves of change from planetary configurations.  It is so easy to just be a servant to our habits and usual patterns of behavior.  During these Eclipse Seasons we are reminded that life does not stay the same.  Our lives have seasons just like nature does, and we need at these times to put to rest that which is ending, and to open up to an embrace the natural transformations.

The Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year opened the gates to a new collective and personal chapter of our lives.   Now the Autumn Eclipse Season pushes us further into that new chapter, and in the process helps us to release the old and press on into the new.   We are closer than ever to a full admittance into the Age of Aquarius.   The birth pains may increase at times, but keep your eye on the  bigger picture:  Birth of a New Age.

Time to Pause and Astrology Forecast August 17-23

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving down into the last quarter of the lunar cycle this week, and there are no “important” or very intense planetary movements right now.  Maybe we can take a break from so many great waves of change, and settle down a bit.

We are also in the last few days of Leo time of year before we enter the transition month between summer and autumn.   That transition begins later this week as the Sun moves into Virgo on Saturday the 23rd at 12:46 AM Eastern USA Time.

So if you have not gotten too beaten up by all the intensity from early this year through last week, perhaps you can find some time for fun this week.

Or maybe you will need the time to process all that has happened, to get deeper into your body and soul and do some healing.  Perhaps you will need this down time to make some completions, find some resolution, get a better understanding of all that has erupted in your life this year.

This year is an important year of transformation for our human species.  We are in a most powerful chapter of the transition between ages.   We are being “asked” to transform our lives and consciousness in alignment with the Age we are moving into.

To evolve one does not have to be “mean and lean”, does not necessarily mean being the strongest or the most intelligent.  Survival of the fittest is mostly about adaptability to change.

And right now adaptability is mostly about changing one’s consciousness to be in alignment with what the Age of Aquarius is demanding.  Those who still believe that the ones who have the most power or the most money or the most popularity will be the survivors – are off track as that kind will populate the zoos or be the dinosaurs of our future.

Those who believe in Love, who know we are all members of the same family, who respect those who are different from them,  who cherish the Earth, who learn to have empathy for others,  who know all in life is connected and meaningful, will evolve into our new world.  Jesus is said to have spoken that the “meek share inherit the Earth”.  Those who have peace in their hearts will help our Earth and our human family to heal and transform.

I know when you look around now at all the events in the world, it can be so frightening and tempt one to live in fear and become cynical.

Last week we had a well known member of our human family, one who was famous and rich hang himself- Robin Williams.

Buying into the cultural values and being successful on those terms does not make one happy or help one to better survive in the bigger picture.

What one develops in one’s heart and soul, in one’s “inner kingdom”, is where the key to being satisfied and evolving lies.

If you are fearful, depressed, self loathing, untrusting, then you will find misery and you will not truly grow and evolve on a deeper level.  This does not mean you should judge or blame yourself or others for being in that sad state. But you do need to take responsibility for your inner health.

And it does mean that going within and finding your true self, finding inner peace, finding love and truth, will help you most on your life journey.

This does not mean that money or success or popularity are bad, and in fact they can make life easier and more enjoyable.

But without the inner values, those things will be empty and you may never feel you have enough of them.

And without the intention for your  consciousness evolving now, beyond what the conventional world has programmed you to believe and be, you will not be open to the signs that show you your true path of soul evolution.

If you are becoming who others want you to be, you are losing your Self and your health and moving off your soul’s path.

One of the benefits of these transformational times is that the parts of your life that are inauthentic are revealed to you when things break down, so you can see the light again and change direction.

Powerfully transformative Uranus and Pluto will continue making exact square to one another, which has been happening since 2012, through Spring 2015- and will continue to bring transformational energy even after that.

The last time Uranus and Pluto made major exact aspect to one another was in 1965-66 when they were conjunct.  This brought on the ’60s revolution, but of course that revolution stretched into the ’70s.

The next exact square between Uranus and Pluto is in December this year 2014.  And that will be at the end of the autumn, finishing off another Eclipse Season, this time Autumn Eclipse Season 2014. 

The beginning waves of this Eclipse Season will be felt in mid September and the first actual eclipse will be on October 8, a Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries. That will be followed by a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 23.

Uranus and Pluto will be making a Cardinal T-square with  that Aries Lunar Eclipse, a formation almost as powerful as a Grand Cross.

But for now as we enter the last quarter Moon in Taurus this Sunday the 17th, do your best to chill and recharge your heart “batteries”.

Late Sunday/early Monday Jupiter conjuncts Venus in Leo, to bring more joy and hope to you along with the light and airy Moon in Gemini at that time.

Later in the week, after the Moon goes into feeling oriented Cancer from Wednesday through most of Friday, there are relatively minor aspects involving Uranus, Pluto, and Mars in Scorpio.  That should bring more intensity, but nothing to shake you up too much.

See you next week,

Leo

Time Marches on and Astrology Forecast December 1-7.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on November 30, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Lots of sensitive people are feeling something stirring now in their bodies and souls, forcing them to keep their attention there.  There continues to be deep releasing and much attention is on the lower chakras, those chakras closer to the Earth.

Is the Earth pulling our bodies closer to its rumblings?    Is it making us aware of its discomfort in some way?   Are there powerful events coming our way soon?

Perhaps much of this pull downward is merely to have us give a huge release before the upward energies of the Sagittarius New Moon this coming Monday night.

As I write this on Saturday November 30, we are in the dark phase of the Moon, and the end of the Autumn Eclipse Season.   Much was shaken up and much shifted during this Eclipse Season.   Mercury was retrograde for the most intense part of the Eclipse Season, and Uranus made another exact square of Pluto then also.

Much of the transformational energy that occurred is deeper than we can contact with our conscious minds.  Much of what truly was changed is still to be determined.

But now as we await this  New Moon in Sagittarius on Monday December 2 at 7:22 PM EST, it is best to stay in deep emotional waters, but it is also advised to not let the deep waters take you to “negative” fearful places.     You are moving through deep changes aligned with global and Universal shifts, and are being prepared for what will be coming our way as a collective human family on Planet Earth.

Far up in the skies now, Comet Ison has passed through its close encounter with the Sun, and now it has dimmed and broken apart to some degree.  Astronomers are not making prediction of the outcome yet, not sure if it will brighten again or fade away.

If it lives brightly it will be most easily seen with naked eye or telescope or binoculars between December 2 and December 16.     Its meaning for our world is still to be determined, but of course it is quite interesting that it comes on the heals of Autumn Eclipse Season 2013.

After the Sagittarius New Moon on the night of December 2, energies will shift into more upward energies and our upper chakras will be triggered, waking us up.  Inspiration, high mindedness, and faith will be brought more into our consciousness.

Your heart will want to be uplifted into more hope and joy.    Hopefully this will translate into giving us more motivation for life and out of any depressed feelings.

You may feel more desire to liberate your self from difficult or stuck places or patterns after this new moon.  You may have greater desire for freedom and for trusting your intuition instead of your logical mind.  You may want to celebrate more or dance more freely. Most planets will still be yin signs, however, so it best not to let the Sagittarius New Moon stoke you into any manic behavior as a way to end the recent drought of emotional upliftment.

And yet this comet is somewhat of a wildcard now.   Astronomers have been baffled by its unpredictable shifts, seemingly dying, then becoming brighter than ever, then fading again.  Its message is also elusive now, and what it portends for our human family still unknown.  The next few weeks will show us what it means.  What will happen now in our lives is still somewhat of a mystery also.

Keep in mind that next year 2014, late winter and spring, there will be most powerful planetary movements, movements that herald great change in the USA especially.

The powers of healing and transformation will spike even higher than they have this autumn.  As a result the ability to let go of old programming, empty ways of being, dysfunctional patterns and behaviors, and stuck situations, will be greater than ever.

The Age of Aquarius will show us its light brighter than before, but with it the destruction of old world ways will be bringing us into darker waters too.

Every time we get taken into darker waters of our mind and emotions, we are given the opportunity to release old beliefs and ways.  The way it used to be no longer exists, and no amount of nostalgia can bring it back.  Letting go of old chapters of our life is so difficult sometimes, so painful, but time keeps marching on, whether we are in step with it or not.

If we hold on too long, and get out of alignment with the changes moving through our lives and consciousness, we then will give in to stagnant waters and decay, and our souls die another level.  This does not mean accepting changes that are outside your integrity or core values, as all changes we see in the world are not healthy or connected to the shifts guided by the Universe.

All the emphasis on violence and sex and consumerism cannot be healthy.   The entitlement more and more people think they deserve,as well as the lack of taking responsibility for one’s own life- is not where the Universe is pointing us toward.

There also has been a trend by some people to be disengaged from relationship, to stay in bubbles in one’s own mind that preclude being deeply connected to others.  Part of this is a result of the movement into an Age of Aquarius, as technology and global networks of social connection are an important part of the new age.  Using gadgets, smart phones, etc. will continue.

But are we throwing out the baby with the bathwater by using these devices to insulate us from one another?     We are all deciding how we want our relationships to be as we move into the Age of Aquarius.   And each time Venus goes retrograde we are made to concentrate more on our relationships.    On December 21, the day of the Winter Solstice, Venus will go Retrograde again.

It will be time to give more care to our relationships then.  We will discuss this more as we get closer to that date.

In the meantime take care,

Leo

Comet Ison and Astrology Forecast November 24-30

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 23, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in the last days of the lunar cycle begun at the powerful Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 3.   We are in the last days of Autumn Eclipse Season 2013.     We are soon moving into the last month of the year 2013.  We are in the beginning stages of experiencing the appearance of Comet Ison.

For many there are dark feelings to work through now, as we let go and let die that which is ready to be released.    For some that is people or pets who are or will soon be leaving. For others situations that no longer fit their lives are being let go.  For still others the letting go is on a physical level, letting go of possessions- cleaning out our homes of clutter- or our bodies of toxins.

If you are having serious challenges in your soul or in your body now, do not let your self get sucked too deeply into fears or despair.  Do not fall into any black holes of “doom and gloom” now.  What is happening is part of your healing and transformation soul journey, not a long term trip back into old nightmares.   You are getting ready for some strong new beginnings in the not too distant future

Soon there will be some new sparks of life at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 2.

And perhaps most importantly, and most unpredictably, we are experiencing the power of the Comet Ison.    What this comet is bringing to us in the way of experiences or shifts in our lives could be quite significant, both on a personal level and collectively on a worldwide level.

If you are feeling off kilter, out of your usual balance or inner sense of sanity, realize that comets can have a powerful effect on our consciousness.   Comet Ison is holding up pretty well as I write this, on its way to its closest approach to the Sun this coming week on November 28, Thanksgiving Day in the United States.  Comet Ison’s closest approach to the Earth is on January 13/14 2014, so between November 28 and January 14 2014 we will experience the greatest effects of this comet.  There is a slight possibility of a meteor shower from Ison around the January 13/14 2014 date.

If the comet survives its November 28 approach to the Sun, and yet perhaps it still will disintegrate and be a dud, it could very well be seen as big as Venus for us in the sky.   If it does get that bright, it will likely be a harbinger of important world events, as it will be in the sky for many people all over the Earth to see.  December should bring the brightest shine of Ison.

Our ancestors were quite struck by how dramatic events would unfold during the appearance of comets.   Some believed natural calamities or wars came on the tails, so to speak, of the comets.

We are working through now a potential nuclear deal between world powers and Iran as I write this forecast.     What happens or doesn’t happen during these talks, which do synchronize closely with the appearance of Comet Ison, should be very important.

Other important events, as we have discussed in other forecast posts, could also erupt in our world during this time of Comet Ison’s appearance.

The passing Autumn Eclipse Season brought much difficulty to President Obama, as Obamacare has been very challenged, and as President Obama’s approval numbers went to their lowest during his whole Presidency.

We alerted you to the fact that President Obama would suffer during this Autumn Eclipse Season because of the aspects to his natal chart, but fortunately so far the challenges have not been as dramatic as I feared, though still quite serious.

As we experienced the 50 year anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, we got a reminder of how all our lives could change forever all at once during certain world events.

For one generation it was the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 7, 1941, which brought the USA into World War II.    For another generation it was the assassination of JFK on November 22, 1963, which took away the innocence and opened the doors to the revolution of the ’60s.  For a more recent generation it was the bombing of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, which has brought us two wars, Homeland Security, and a making of security more important than ever.

The next 9 months, which will include the Cardinal Grand Cross with Uranus/Pluto and two Eclipses in April 2014, could bring Earth Shaking event(s) again.

As before, these events will bring a turning point to all of our lives and usher in a new era for humans on Planet Earth.   And this time we will be more enveloped by the rays of the Age of Aquarius than ever before.

So keep in mind and heart, as transformation and healing energies sweep through your personal life, that all is happening for a reason, and that your choices will affect the quality of your life changes.

In our personal lives, sometimes synchronized with the changes happening globally and collectively, we experience events that change our lives, like births, marriages, moving, divorces, graduations, new jobs, and deaths.    Each of these life changing events can bring with them a change in consciousness, a shift in attitude, a deeper insight, a broader perspective, more wisdom, and renewals of spirit.

As we let go and release some more during this ending of Autumn Eclipse Season 2013, as we get ready to embrace new adventures with the coming of the New Moon in Sagittarius and Comet Ison, remember your life is meaningful and a soul’s journey above all else.

You did not come to this Earth now to just pay bills, follow rules, watch your body age, and live a random life.  You came here to fulfill a purpose, to live your life alive, to view all your changes as sacred meaningful soul passages.

See you next week,

Leo
