Another Turning Point and Astrology Forecast September 24-30

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 23, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we moved through the end of Eclipse Season, we experienced more natural disasters, more culture battles, and a continuation of ugly violence over North Korea having nuclear weapons.

No one should have weapons of mass destruction of any kind, including nuclear bombs. No one!

The USA and others pushing a sovereign country to stop doing what they have already been doing for many years is starkly hypocritical.  And the USA killed over 300,000 humans, mostly civilian, when they dropped 2 nuclear bombs on Japan in August 1945.

And diplomacy could be found if the Trump administration followed the Russia/China proposal to stop their war games with South Korea while at the same time North Korea puts a stop to their nuclear testing.

USA Trump administration turned that proposal down.  They believe North Korea should stop their testing and destroy their nuclear weapons’ program while the USA offers nothing in return.

This is a really important turning point in world affairs and in our collective evolution into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

All must be equal in value, and accept others in their diverse differences, while seeking Unity within that Diversity.  No more superior and inferior paradigm   Win/Win results in all disagreements.  No more predator and prey.  No more perpetrator and victim consciousness.

The USA must be the last superpower and empire on this planet.  The USA is needing to come down into equality with the rest of the world. The United Nations needs to bring equality to its body of nations.

As the USA accepts its karmic lessons and place in the world, we will have a more graceful voyage into the Age of Aquarius.

When we experienced the Cardinal Grand Cross in 2014, we were beginning in the USA a transformation of our consciousness and values, as that Grand Cross was almost exactly on our Sun in Cancer from our natal chart of July 4 1776.

Uranus square Pluto was part of that Grand Cross, and of course Uranus square Pluto is the first major meeting of those two planets since their conjunction in 1965/66 which initiated the ’60s revolution.

Racial injustices have been coming back, white supremacy has been coming back, and also national chauvinism has been rearing its ugly head busting apart intentions for equality between nations and cultures. Religious fundamentalism which precludes efforts at equality and diversity has turned up in terrorism and in general attitudes of superior/inferior.

And now after the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo, we are given the opportunity to transform and return to the best of what the United States stood for at its birth:  All people are created equal with certain inalienable rights like life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and self determination.  But this must be for all the world, all peoples and nations, not just Americans.

And remember that the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo and its movement across the USA was also opposite the natal USA placement of Moon in Aquarius, which represents those aforementioned values.

The Leo Eclipse triggered Trump’s Ascendant and Mars in his natal chart, showing us a most diseased Leo expression of narcissism, self centeredness, sense of superiority, and dominance over the rights of others. This opposes the USA core values of Moon in Aquarius.

This is our time of standing up for what is right and for what the best of our country represents.  We may have to start another revolution against the current representation of King George from England from revolutionary times: King Trump.

And this week,  we have entered the other side of Autumn Equinox, moving downward in light minutes of the day,  increasing dark yin minutes of the day until the Winter Solstice, when the tide begins to turn back toward light and yang energies.

This week also represents a turning point in other ways as Pluto changes directions from Retrograde to Direct, and Jupiter opposes Uranus.  All this happens close to the same date on September 27/28.

We will be thrust outside any boxes or ruts in our lives, and pushed much more strongly into transformational energies.

Jupiter/Uranus is wake up call of liberation from old ways. It also brings up the opposition of Libra peace and making relationship (Jupiter in Libra) versus having conflict, independence and self satisfaction (Uranus in Aries).

That will play out most likely in relationships of your life.  Will you stand stronger in your independence and empowerment, or do you need to be more sensitive to the needs of others? Of course at best you can find a balance between those two opposites: standing for your needs, while at the same time listening for what someone else needs too.

In the world the North Korea/USA drama will either turn toward peace soon, or else make final commitment toward battle.

At around the same time as Jupiter opposite Uranus, powerful Pluto changes directions and permeates our energy field.  So issues, especially relationship issues, will become more real and will reach down into the core of truth.

As Pluto goes down into the underworld of our psyches, we potentially face the death of old ways, as new ways burn brighter in our consciousness.

In the world, culture and race issues may become stronger still,  natural disasters especially earthquakes are more apt to erupt again,  the North Korea issue could get even more intense, and Middle East/Syria is more likely in the spotlight of our awareness.

This is a powerful time of transformation, and you will have the opportunity to release more of what does not serve you while finding the magic of the new yellow brick roads in your life.

The Jupiter opposition to Uranus is almost exactly square to the USA natal Pluto in its second house.   This is the part of the USA that represents its Military/Industrial Complex, so coined by President Eisenhower.  He warned that it would usurp our democracy and power of the people.

So you can expect energies that seek to break down that power, as well as energies to make it more powerful. Eventually it will transform the power of that complex into a new kind of empowerment, one that represents the people.

This is only the beginning of that natal USA Pluto being aspected.  In 2020/21 Saturn will conjunct that Pluto, and in 2021-2023 Pluto will have it very first Pluto Return in the USA natal chart- 245 years after the birth of the USA.

So these next several years will bring enormous transformation of USA power and the power of its government, military, and financial institutions.

And of course the entry into the opening of a major portal into the Age of Aquarius also happens in the early 2020s.

We the people can not go to sleep.  We must, with great passion, bring about an even bigger revolution than what happened in the ’60s.

We must go much further with that work, and bring down the new Nixon administration, which is our current Trump presidential administration.

He is in our lives to remind us that the transformation of this country must be fulfilled, so we can be an equal member of the community of nations and cultures, one of many with rights of self determination, and of freedom and happiness.

Diversity within Unity will become reality. Truth and Love will be both Above in the heavens of the Universe as always, and synchronistically Below in the core values of our Earth community.

Till next week,

Leo

End of Eclipse Season, Autumn Equinox, and Astrology Forecast September 17-23

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we come to the end of Eclipse Season, which has been a most powerful time of shifting life tides,  taking us faster forward through a New Life Chapter that is closer than ever to the Age of Aquarius.

Now that the Eclipse Season, which included Mercury Retrograde, is ending at the New Moon in Virgo this week; we are able to gain some perspective and insight into what happened and what may come next.

Many of us have been taken to important turning points in our lives, perhaps even requiring crossroads decisions.

For awhile now we may need to get our bearings after the intensity of the passing Eclipse Season, and the Virgo energies now will help us to analyze what has happened, to bring order to our lives, and to simplify what has been a rather complicated time period.

This is not a time to push forward, instead it is a time to fix up, repair, heal, clean up, and figure out.

That is because there is a New Moon in Virgo on September 19/20- actually at 1:30 AM EDT on the 20th. Mercury and Mars will already be in Virgo at that time, and Venus will have just arrived there too.

Virgo energy gives us greater ability to discern and be discriminating, to skeptically question, to be critical- hopefully in a constructive way.

So you will have the ability to take apart and view more closely the details of what is happening in your life.  Be careful, however, not to let healthy questioning turn into negativity, unfair criticism, and cynicism.  And be careful not to take yourself apart critically.

Virgo can be very perfectionistic and has a tendency to see life’s glass as half empty not half full.

In examining the world after the important events of Eclipse Season, we will have the ability to examine and find order, but must be careful not to be too negative, worrying, or fearful in the process.

We had extreme weather conditions and natural disasters, with an 8.1 Earthquake in Mexico, two very powerful hurricanes to hit the USA, as well as western USA wildfires that were more out of control than usual.

Culture wars picked up speed, starting in Charlottesville with KKK and neo Nazis instigating hatreds and violence.

The Middle East showed signs of change as Islamic State was wiped out of many locales it controlled, though it did perpetrate terrorist attacks at the same time. Syria is apparently more settled now, but  at the same time Israel and Iran are showing themselves closer to confrontation, with Hezbollah and Russia involved also.

But most ominously North Korea has taken center stage in our world with missile and bomb tests that have shaken the USA and much of the world.

Now it has become time to make decision on what can be done in that situation.

Of course many of us know weapons of mass destruction need to be mass destructed for the health of our planet.

But given the current situation, the wise option is to sit down with them, recognize their nuclear power,  and work out a solution similar to what was done with Russia during the Cold War.

The other option, a military one, will almost for sure touch off a World War, and begin to destroy the current economy.

There is no more sitting on the fence of sanction implementations for North Korea.

We are moving into a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius. In that Age there is equality among cultures, countries, and ways of living.   There is a multipolar power sharing and resource sharing world building.

Already China and Russia are determined to changing the current economy from one led by the American dollar and America.

Obama’s presidency began the process of leveling the world’s playing field and honoring the differences in people. He did as much as he could do considering the power of the Deep State’s Military Industrial Complex.

Now Trump challenges that global way of connecting us all.  He represents America keeping power over the world as a Superpower.

On a deeper level those days are done.  Now let’s hope the awakening to that fact happens without war and complete economic downfall.

We must collectively choose from our Higher Selves, not our ego selves, or as Sun in Aquarius Abraham Lincoln suggested- let our Better Angels lead the way.

Is our country and world sufficiently awakened to our Higher Self, the one aligned with the Age of Aquarius?

If not, and we will know soon, we will face our collective shadows in war and severe economic downturn.

As we each align with the energies of the Universe and our Higher Selves now, we need to then surrender our ego control and let this all play out as it will.

We can do our part by being in our Higher Self’s connection with Love and Truth.  And we can spread that wonderful energy to others we connect with.

And of course our letting go of the old programming from family and society,  helps everyone else to do so also- as a new trail is being blazed for everyone who awakens.

We also choose in this new consciousness to find balance and equality of male and female, yin and yang, dark and light, as true Nature requires.

 And that balance can be found at the Autumn Equinox on September 22 at 4:02 PM.

Autumn Equinox as always begins Sun in Libra time of year.

Autumn Equinox brings a perfect balance of light and dark minutes of the day, which is a signal for all opposites to join in equal balance.

After the moment of perfect balance, dark minutes of the day begin to increase, finding their optimum at Winter Solstice.

Libra time of year is a time to enjoy beauty and balance, symmetry and equality.  There is more emphasis on relationships and love.

Libra is also about the scales of justice, and knowing what is fair and just.  Libra can see both sides of an issue, which makes them great mediators but often as a result indecisive.

Libra is a sign of social graces, which can often preclude passion and primal desires and natural instincts.

Jupiter has been in Libra this past year, so we have been expanding our desires to make relationship, and to find equal balance and moderation in our consciousness and ways of living.

In a few weeks, however, expansive Jupiter will shift into Scorpio for a year.  Starting on October 10, we thus will begin to expand our desire nature, our sexual needs, and most importantly find what gives us passion in our life.

Scorpio also, in the process of reactivating our more primal instincts, may take out of slumber our repressed or suppressed lower emotions.

Rage, jealousy, envy, contempt, and just general meanness are the worst potential expressions of Scorpio.

Suppressed or repressed earlier traumatic events and wounding will tend to come to the surface where we can from our souls,  relive and at the same time release some of those old traumas.

As Jupiter goes into Scorpio, we will get more clear instinctually on what direction to take.  We will know from our passions what we want to do next.

In the world, events are more likely to be ignited after Jupiter goes into Scorpio, events that can be referred back to the Eclipse season we just passed through.

But for now gather yourself, investigate what needs to be investigated, fix, heal, repair, simplify and find order (Virgo).  And then also find the right balance, be more kind, focus on relationships and relating, look for love and beauty in everything (Libra).

Till next week,

Leo

BTW- the world will not be ending or destroyed on September 23 as many are proclaiming.  How many times have we heard that the world is ending?

I will be leading a class on Transforming Consciousness into the Golden Age of Aquarius on September 23 at noon- 6 PM Pacific Coast Time in Sedona Arizona.  Astrology and your own chart will be a big part of the process.

Taking it to the Edge and Astrology Forecast September 10-16

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are coming up to the beginning of the 4th quarter phase of the lunar cycle on Wednesday this week.

That will be the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21.

That 4th and last quarter ends at the New Moon in Virgo on September 20, to be closely followed on September 22 by the Autumn Equinox.

This effectively ends Eclipse Season.  So the enormous intensity brought on by this Eclipse Season begins to subside.

Now that does not mean that important events in the world will end at that point.  In fact important events that have reference to what happened during Eclipse Season will likely unfold within 6 months from when Eclipse Season ends.

And it has been a most powerful Eclipse Season, with both natural and man made events erupting in the world, centered in large part in America.

North Korea and the United States have been frighteningly showing the world the potential danger of war and even nuclear war.

The natural disasters have been exceedingly dangerous ones.  Since the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21 we have experienced a devastating hurricane, Hurricane Harvey  moving through much of Texas.

There also is an equally large hurricane about to engulf Florida, Hurricane Irma.  And 2 more hurricanes have been developing in the Atlantic Ocean, Jose and Katrina.

These are said to be some of the biggest hurricanes in many years.

And in Mexico, an especially powerful 8.1 earthquake struck last week. This is one of the largest earthquakes in many years.

So the predicted natural disasters occurred as did the war threats and culture war threats during Eclipse Season.

Personal lives have been in uproar also, as many people have been coming to crossroads moments in their lives, or at least they are experiencing important turning point events or decisions that need to be made.

We have undoubtedly entered a most difficult transition time between one chapter of our lives to a whole New Chapter of our lives.

The old “contracts” or agreements we have made with others or with ourselves (spoken or unspoken) have expired, and we are deciding at a deep soul level if there is a new agreement to be made, a new birth into this New Chapter.

I am seeing this most especially in important relationships or marriages. The life or heart of the old form has been dying, and people are trying to see if there is new life to fuel their continued existence with one another.

And globally, old world relationships are not working as before, and thus new alliances are forming, a more multi polar world is developing, beyond super powers or dominating empires.

Russia, China, the United States, North Korea, Israel, Iran, Saudi Arabia etc. are looking for what countries or cultures to bond with as allies now.

This is similar to what happened prior to the world wars of the 20th century. And now we hope and pray another way is found to build alliances this time.

It is even more important now how this shuffling of alliances plays out, because we are so close to the Age of Aquarius’ need of Diversity within Unity; but also because there are now weapons of mass destruction that have been developed by so many countries now.

In personal lives everyone is searching for heart connections and soul connections with others, yet also looking for an authentic expression of oneself.

In that process we are found doubting previously considered solid relationships, jobs, and homes, as well as reconsidering how we each perceive ourselves and life itself.

Our beliefs and inner paradigms are shifting, shifting in order to make sense of our world now, in order to survive and evolve in conjunction with this New World we are all moving into.

The natural disasters and man made threats to our existence are pushing us to feeling our vulnerability to things that are greater than we each are.

As a result some are getting tougher to feel more able to deal with the threats, but many are also joining with others to help one another through these difficult times.

Look at the reaction of people to the natural disasters: many are going out of their way to assist others who are losing their homes or loved ones. Empathy and love between people are growing as a result.

We need to know we are all in this together, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or lifestyles.

More events will unfold to assist us in banding together as One Earth Family.

But of course some will persist in believing the old paradigm of “survival of the fittest” understood as I need to conquer you in order to survive and evolve.   And then I need to take all the goodies for myself at your expense.

We know now that survival and evolution of our species is dependent on our knowing we are all connected and working together. Otherwise blowing each other up is in our future (or non future).

Remember as Eclipse Season begins to wind down, that the powerful natural disasters that have been happening are centered around the USA- where the Total Solar Eclipse travelled exclusively over. And the other big one, the 8.0 Earthquake struck not far away in Mexico.

Mars in Trump’s chart was triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse. And the USA natal Moon in Aquarius was closely opposed by that same eclipse.  So was North Korea’s Saturn very closely conjunct the eclipse.

Israel and Netanyahu  also experienced a triggering of Mars. I did not know what that meant until this last week when Israel staged it biggest military exercises of the last 20 years.  And they dropped a bomb on Syria to stop supposed chemical weapons from being delivered and in the process killed 2 people. The Middle East is now susceptible to major conflict as a result.

Our world and personal lives are going through such dramatic transformation now.

But in that process people are waking up, looking for new ways, opening their minds and hearts, listening better, developing greater empathy and compassion, and moving toward lives more heartfelt, soul based, and authentic.

Being human has never been an easy journey, at least not for long. We are here for reasons other than material gain and material success and contentedness.

We are quite a fascinating species.

We have hearts and souls and complicated interesting minds. Unlike any other Earth creatures we can paint beautiful pictures, compose music that touches and moves us deeply, develop spiritual perspectives, find meaning for our lives, create masterful technology, mass communication devices, mass transportation, and find love in our hearts and empathy for one another.

Yet unlike any other creatures we also kill for reasons other than eating, we hate and control, we judge and lack trust.

Our next frontier is the most important of all I believe.  That is seeing ourselves as one family embracing and respecting our differences. We must leave the false notion that there is something wrong with us, having original sin, or some other fatal flaw. Our self loathing and judgments have much to do with what we have done to hurt one another.

We are beautiful beings learning how to grow and evolve together. And unfortunately we have the habit of taking things to the edge before we are convinced we must change and transform.

Pray that we do not take things too far to the edge this time. Let us instead more gracefully awaken to who we are evolving into to be aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week from Sedona Arizona,

Leo

Shifting Realities and Astrology Forecast September 18-24

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week brings us winds shifting into a turning point.

Mercury has been Retrograde since August 3; on September 22 it goes back Direct again.

Also on September 22, Summer is ending at the Autumn Equinox at 10:21 AM EDT.

We have made it through 2 Eclipses this September, and now though the eclipses have passed us by, we still are in the waning energies of Eclipse Season.

As Eclipse Season begins to slow down, we flow right into the metaphorical sunset time of year: Autumn Equinox, the beginning also of Libra time of year.

Twice a year Light and Dark are equal:  Spring Equinox and Autumn Equinox.  At Spring Equinox, though yin and yang are equal, the turn is toward Yang and Light, with yin and darker days waning.

But at Autumn Equinox the reverse is true:  Light and Dark, Yin and Yang are equal; but Yin and darker days begin to grow.

So we begin to slow down and turn more inward.  We also begin to let go more of striving  and personal gain, and instead become more relationship oriented and appreciative of what we have.

As the light begins to dim, we become more grateful for the friends we have, more wanting to focus on relationship and inner values.

As this yin-ward movement begins, this year it is accompanied by Mercury going back Direct again. I know many will be quite relieved at that shift.

Clarity begins to appear, fogs lift to show us more clearly what direction we need to move in.

You may not get the full picture and feel comfortable to move forward yet however.

The New Moon in Libra on September 30 is a good marking point for greater clarity and movement forward.

But for this week enjoy the shift, allow the shift inside yourself.

Many, since Mercury went Retrograde, questioned their previous choices or beliefs, perceived in new ways, woke up to new ideas.

Some also have experienced a slide back to old times, to old friends and relationships in their minds, dreams or in the flesh.

We were reminded of how it used to be so we could see our current situations from a bigger or deeper perspective.

Sometimes we get so goal directed, or driven by a strict agenda, or so sure of our way of seeing things.  We need to be loosened up, to see other points of view. Mercury Retrograde can help us to do that.

And though Mercury Retrograde can be very difficult, it does help us to be more process oriented, and to open our minds and hearts to other viewpoints and feelings.

Now with the Autumn Equinox added to Mercury going back Direct again, and the last eclipse having passed; we can slow down and allow life to show us the way as things now unfold.

We have been learning that forced left brain obsession with finding the answers, has left us with more anxiety and less clarity.

Autumn Equinox lets us know that colder darker days are slowly moving in.  We know we need people more as a result.

The Sun moves into relationship oriented Libra at the Autumn Equinox.  Relationship means friends and family and romance, but it also means more awareness of social ways of perceiving and being.

Everything we do or say affects others, and though we may value pure and honest self expression; we often need to balance our frank expression with a sensitivity to how it makes others feel or how it will affect the state of our relationship.

Libra also seeks relationship in other ways.  It likes symmetry and beauty and how colors and shapes interact with one another. It is motivated by love.

It cares about balancing the scales of justice and seeing both sides of an argument.

In that process of seeing both sides it can be very indecisive and also can give up its own needs and individual self.  It can be so accomodating of others.

It also can be so caught up with how things appear or how they should be socially correct. In so being it can lose the deeper value of a situation or the honest expression.

Yet Libra stands for Connection, Fairness and Peace above all else.

As the disrupting energies of eclipses leave our consciousness and lives, we are ready to see what will take shape as a result.

There will be both world and personal events coming soon that will be a result of what has been shaken up during the eclipses.

The Presidential Election process will begin to clear up after Mercury goes back Direct.  In fact just a few days after Mercury goes back direct there is the first Presidential debate- I believe on September 26.

That debate should provide for those tuned in a real good sense of what direction the election process is moving toward.

In your personal life you could very well begin to feel soon as if you made it through a challenging time, progressed and grew, and now are ready for what will come your way.

The recent weeks have been a transformational challenge, pitting us up against some of our core issues.

You have released some of the emotional baggage and will feel lighter and more open to being your authentic self and receiving others as they are naturally.

We are all evolving in alignment with the changing energies, energies aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into.

If you are sensing, seeing or feeling things that are not usually a part of what you call reality, you are not going crazy.

You are instead spiritually awakening to frequencies and realities that are beyond what we are taught to exist.

Entering into these worlds or being open to these entities will assist your evolution and your journey into the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

A Step Beyond and Astrology Forecast September 11- 17.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

Blood Moon and Astrology Forecast September 27- October 3.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 26, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I begin to write this forecast on the eve of Pluto going Direct and only a few days before the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries;  it feels as if there is a time bomb waiting to go off.

On the surface all is well, especially here in Southern France.   It is breathtakingly beautiful here in the land where the Cathars were massacred by the Catholic church and French government in the 13th century.

While many passively accepted the authority of the government and church, those who were considered heretics, like the Cathars, were feared by the powers that had so much control of people’s lives.

The Cathars had many beliefs similar to the Catholic Church, but they believed spirituality could be achieved without help from the church, and they had as many women “priests” as men.

Love was what was considered most Godly, and they led very simple lives. believing in the consciousness of Christ for all to embody.

They were completely wiped out, a genocide, and most all the records of their life and faith were destroyed.

Mary Magdalene is also a very strong presence here, with churches and monuments honoring her and her spiritual mastery.

There are many who believe she was married to Jesus and that they had children.  There is also the belief that there is a bloodline that was developed from there, that may still live.

There is so much we do not know of the truth of our human journey and its origins.  Church, government, military, secret service,  and now Corporate interests conspire to program the herd in order to keep the world as it is, under their control- thus keeping their power, privilege and wealth.

But nature and the Universe are the ultimate power of this world, though the illusion shows up differently.

Now as we move through a transition from the Pisces to the Aquarian Age, the power of transformation is gaining in speed and strength and more and more Truths will come to the surface.

The 18+ months from the Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014 to the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon on September 27 2015 have opened up a Grand Portal of new consciousness of Truth and Love.

We have been very intensely processing our ghosts and demons from the past, releasing these blocks to our receiving the new energies.

Now after this Total Lunar Eclipse, we re ready to embrace more fully our journey forward into new personal and collective global lives.

Pluto this week has been opening us to face our demons and release them as best we can. Suppressed and hidden elements  from our personal and collective unconscious are streaming through so we can be as present as possible for our real lives.

Here in southern France we went into caves where “heretics” hid from the authorities; we took a boat ride down an underground river; we explored even deeper caves where cro-magnon man wrote and drew on walls thousands and thousands of years ago.

This trip inside the body of Mother Earth coordinated well with Pluto’s current underworld penetration.

We often see our spiritual journey as one connected to the heavens up above. But it is also a spiritual journey deep into the Earth, where we reconnect with our Earthly heritage, our natural instincts and passions, and our deepest joining together in soulful community with all souls and all creatures.

Now as our stock market and economy begin their downward journey, we also begin our collective journey to knowing we are all in  the same family with the same concerns and suffering.

The turn at the Autumn Equinox is toward more dark and yin energies as always; Pluto brings us into the realms of our deepest soulful feelings; and the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon reminds us that life is powerful and unpredictable force of transformation now.

The unpredictable mystery of the Great Feminine is picking up strength now as we move through the Full Moon Eclipse this week, and it will help open up more the Grand Portal which will bring us powerful world events that continue to show us the way forward into a New World and Paradigm.

The Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries is on Sunday the 27th at 10:51 PM EDT.

Sun in Libra and Moon in Aries for this Eclipse bring us Questions:  of conflict or peace?; Mine or Ours; Stand Up or Be Passive; Push Forward or Take it Easy; Fight or Make Peace will be themes of the Eclipse.

Being True to oneself is most important at this eclipse but that needs to be balanced with a need to listen to others and make relationship as important as being true to Self.   Neither side should be “compromised”.  Instead a win/win  must be found  for this Full Moon Eclipse to truly be honored.

In the global arena, watch for events to unfold in the Middle East, especially with Israel, as the 4 Blood Moons in a row have all been on Jewish holidays.

Some have predicted a messiah is coming as a result, while others are talking of doomsday.

I am pretty sure I will be writing to you next week, and another doomsday scenario will be doomed.

Nevertheless, this passage must be taken seriously, as it is an important turning point and crossroads in human affairs on Earth.

Most importantly on a personal level, is how your consciousness will be on the other side of this 18 month transition we have been going through.

Will you have allegiance to the old paradigm and its fear based programming or will you still believe you live in a meaningful world with Love and Truth leading the way.

Do you still believe we can attain a Diversity in Unity world, aligned with the frequencies of an Age of Aquarius.

A further breakdown of the old economy and increasing world conflict will be the illusions that one must avoid taking to heart.

By illusion I do not mean that these difficult events will not be real.  What I do mean is that they and the powers of the old paradigm do not govern the Universe and your soul.  You do not need to allow fear and panic  to take over.

Yes we may feel fear with events, but we can balance that with our pure connections to heart and source.

These world events, and the fear they engender cannot take your soul without your approval.

You are in charge of the quality of your soul and spirit and mind and the beliefs and attitudes you buy into.   Often we cannot control the events that come into our lives, but we can control how we react to those events.

The Cathars, as they made their final retreat to Montsegur where thy were slaughtered,  chose to die instead of give oath to government and church.

If they can do that, each of us can have faith too in God/Goddess/Universe/Soul/Spirit/Freedom.

In an Aquarian Age, we do not have to choose between material world and spiritual world.  We can honor both, but we must take the veil of programming off our eyes so we can see the light.

The next two weeks after the Total Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon will be mainly for processing what has been happening in our emotions, souls, minds and lives

And Mercury will still be Retrograde until Friday October 9, when it goes back Direct.

Then on October 12, the New Moon in Libra will signal an end to Eclipse Season and a slow movement forward into a new chapter in our personal and collective lives.

We will have taken another huge step forward toward the Age of Aquarius, which will be waiting for us to arrive after December 2020.

Till next week,

Leo

Stepping up the Tempo and Astrology Forecast September 20-27.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we moved through our first eclipse of this Eclipse Season, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo. And then a few days afterward we experienced the beginning of a new Mercury Retrograde period.

A huge 8.3 Earthquake in Chile happened during that week. I would not be surprised if more were on the way soon considering the deep power of this Eclipse Season.

We are in new energy zones now and this week the intensity increases with a second quarter Moon in Sagittarius; Autumn Equinox; and Pluto going Direct just a few days before the important Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries early next week.

The second quarter of the Solar Eclipse New Moon’s lunar cycle begins on Monday September 21, with the Moon in Sagittarius.

A second quarter moon usually picks up the pace in the lunar cycle,  as we move inexorably forward toward the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries on Sunday September 27.

Before that Lunar Eclipse, there is an important annual turning point event,  the Autumn Equinox on Wednesday September 23 at 4:21 AM EDT.

Autumn Equinox always begins as the Sun moves into Libra.  Those Libran scales are evenly balanced between dark and light minutes of the day on Autumn Equinox; but right afterwards the dark minutes begin to increase.  They will continue to increase until Winter Solstice when darkness will be at its zenith.

You can metaphorically view the Autumn Equinox like a sunset time of year, as Spring Equinox is like a Sun rising time of year.

As the darkness begins to set in at Autumn Equinox, our hearts and souls begin to soften and open up to relationship and artistic beauty.  These are Libra traits that are evident during the beginning month of Autumn.

As we begin to move more yin-ward with the increasing dark minutes of the day, we feel a pull to be more attentive to social values instead of more self assertive values.

Self assertive pursuits are more organic in the first month of spring when Aries is the ruling sign.

So now we begin to lean into cooler and darker days, but ever so slowly, as we take our time as we experience the loveliness of early Autumn.

In contrast, overnight September 24/25, darkly intense Pluto goes from Retrograde to Direct.  As it changes directions, its power of transformation enters our collective energy field.

The intensity level will increase as we feel our passion increasing. Sometimes that means we are more apt to get into arguments with others, and if so be careful not to say things you might regret later.

Other times, however, Pluto can help us to express what we have been suppressing, so we can then work out issues that have blocking out our authentic “voice”.  At the same time there may be a catharsis in the interaction and a clearing the air.

Afterwards there is a feeling of renewal, like after an orgasm.  Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio and so passions of all sorts including sexual are normal at such times of Pluto changing directions.

And this increase of intensity is a bridge into the power of the Total Lunar Eclipse new Moon in Aries.

That Total Lunar Eclipse is the 4th Lunar Eclipse in a row that is total eclipse, also called a Blood Moon.

And every one of these Blood Moons has occurred on a Jewish holiday, showing us the potentiality of a sign pointing to important world events involving Israel now.

The fight right now over the Jewish Temple Mount, which is the Muslim Al Aqsa, has been getting heavier and is a potential place for great conflict, as this area has been considered holy by Christians, Muslims and Jews.

Also as we move through the shifts this week and next, look closely at the stock markets and global economy. They are on the verge of great transformation, and signs of great changes that are on the way are being shown now.

Out world is in the process of great change, as our old paradigm for living is changing more and more every day.  Old borders between countries, and power balances are changing more and more every day.

This is a great time, as everything is shifting, to open up to the gateway and portal into our new world.

As you clear out blocks and let go of old dysfunctional patterns and toxic energies, you are opening up more to Source and Universe.  From there you will receive more synchronicities and meaningful symbols showing you the way.   This portal has great doses of Truth helping you to be more awake.

This gateway also has more love and meaning pouring through, changing the tone and glow of everyone and everything in your life.

We are being taken out of our old comfort zones during this Eclipse Season, which may not have been truly that comfortable for you.

As you are being taken off your usual balance, that brings in both difficult and enjoyable elements into your consciousness and life.

You will naturally experience breakdowns of that which is not right for you anymore and breakthroughs into new realms of experience.

Do not hold on too tightly to that which is ready to go.  Stop your self from being too attached and all will happen more gracefully.

It is true that change can be stressful, whether considered positive or negative,so do your best to keep centered and seeing all as happening for a reason.

Remember that Mercury is Retrograde now too, so do not try too hard to figure it all out intellectually or analytically.  Let the process unfold now instead of needing answers now.

Allow your reflective, imaginative, and intuitive mind and heart to be of more influence now.

And realize that also there may be some rewinding into the past too now, so you can reintegrate people, ideas, old parts of self back into your consciousness.

And please with all the shifting and changing and Mercury Retrograde, be careful not to jump to any conclusions or make hasty decisions.

The Eclipse Intensity will slowly subside after the Total Eclipse and Mercury will stay retrograde until October 9.

This Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on Sunday September 27 will be at 10:51 PM EDT.  It will have the Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries.

This will push us into finding a proper balance between peace and conflict; between being true to self or true to someone else or a relationship; taking action or letting things go; and being assertive or being accommodating.

In the greater world “war or peace” will be a likely major theme to be worked out.

I am posting this while in Southern France.  We are there on a pilgrimage to the places Mary Magdalene was said to have walked, and to experience the energies of the Cathars, who were wiped out in genocide in the 13th century during the Inquisition.

I hope to post short updates on September 26 and October 3 while still in France. I will be back to USA on October 5.

Till next week,

Leo
