As Above, So Below and Astrology Forecast September 23-29

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we enter the annual portal into Autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere.

 The Autumn Equinox is on Saturday September 22 at 9:54 PM EDT.  As always, that means that the Sun moves into Libra at that Equinox moment.  The Sun stays in Libra for 30 days.

Two days later, on September 24, the Moon catches up to the Sun from its opposite position.  So the Moon in Aries opposes the Sun in Libra to form a Full Moon at 10:52 PM EDT.

Autumn Equinox is a time when light and dark minutes are equal.  That means yin and yang, “male” and “female” are also equal.

Then right after that Autumn Equinox moment of equality- dark, yin, “female” energy starts growing in relationship to the dimming energies of light, yang, and “male”.

At Winter Solstice dark is at its zenith.  Then at Spring Equinox we have equality again, but with light, yang energies beginning to increase.

Autumn Equinox symbolizes a time of year when we begin to know that darker, colder days are coming.  It is a time when personal striving and ambition begin to feel less important than relationships and social matters.

On a deep level, mortality can be felt as more real as darkness begins to grow.  We seek companionship to help us through the night.

And Libra brings us the Goddess of Relationship- Venus, which is the “ruling” planet of Libra.

Libra finds relationship and relating as more important than individual needs for independence and alone-time.

Libra is the scale of balance, always sensitive to equality and fairness as a result.

Libra is the master of diplomacy and mediation, able to see both sides of an issue.  As such it can have a really difficult time making decisions. Its ability to balance contributes to its talent at finding symmetry, which aids in its talent to balance colors, which aids its talent at creating beauty.

At the Full Moon in Aries two days later on the 24th, the Sun in Libra seeks relationship and at its best is very into the “other” person.

But the Full Moon has the Moon in Aries, and Aries seeks independence, being true to self, and taking care of personal needs and desires.

So at this Full Moon in Libra/Aries, it may be very important to balance doing what one wants to do for oneself,  with doing what someone else wants or what is best for the relationship.

Venus rules Libra and Mars rules Aries, so peace or war, connection or conflict may be decided personally and globally around the time of the full moon.

Saturn is also in aspect to this Full Moon, making close square to both Sun in Libra and Moon in Aries.

So if peace or war- or Female way  or Male way- cannot be decided, there will be a hand of fate or time that comes into play to make the decision.

Look at the Kavanaugh/Ford congressional proceedings to be reflective of these planetary movements.

Also this week Pluto is slowing down in order to go from Retrograde to Direct on Sunday the 30th of September.

That means that especially toward the end of this week intensity increases, passions are stirred, power struggles are more likely, and energies for transformation are stronger.

We are solidly beyond Summer Eclipse Season now, yet we are still in waiting for events that are developing as a result of that Eclipse Season.  Watch Syria/Middle East, Korea, and China trade to come front and center this Autumn.

Saturn makes its last pass of the USA natal Venus and Jupiter this Autumn. Mars and Jupiter make an important conjunction and square to the USA natal Moon this Autumn too. Important shifts for America are happening.

Saturn made its first pass to the USA Venus and Jupiter in January/February when Winter Eclipse Season was happening. The stock market reached a new high before falling dramatically then.

And last week the market reached a new high, higher than that previous high last January.   Another Eclipse Season has passed, and now Saturn goes back to where it was back in January/February.

Chances for a dramatic market drop are great again this Autumn.

For your personal life, remember we have entered a New Chapter of our lives.

Most have not fully adapted to this New Chapter yet.  There is still a purging of the old stories, traumas, and energy patterns from the Old Chapter.  There is still a “not-knowing” of what this New Chapter is all about.

We are caught between worlds, so to speak, no longer a part of the past, but not yet fully connected to our new path.

So living in the moment is more important than ever, allowing the processes of nature, your higher self, and the Universe to play out.

This makes trust and faith especially important now.

And horrific past personal events can make having trust and faith very challenging.

Keep in mind that there is a “higher/deeper Source” that is always there in the best interest of your soul and spirit.

It is true that surrendering to that Source takes ultimate ego control away from you.  But ego control keeps you stuck when it is time to grow and change.

Trust that Source and watch your life gain wings to fly through this transition time in your life.

Allow the Sun to go down now at the Sunset time of Autumn Equinox this week. Surrender to Nature and allow your soul to go down and yin-ward with it.

All is in Divine order. It our fears that see differently. The Earth and Heavens are connected and working together.  It is our fears that see differently.

“As Above/So Below” is metaphysical truth and Astrology is its translator.

Till next week,

Leo

Down to New Reality and Astrology Forecast September 2-8.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we come to the end of Summer Eclipse Season 2018.  So energetically there is less force and power pushing us to transform and change. 

Yet there will be more in the way of important events to follow, because what has been “shaken up”, “broken  down” and “broken through” during transformational Eclipse Season, (as also Mars and Mercury were Retrograde), is now being collected, put together and being decided.

Especially since Mars went Direct, the movement now is toward action and manifestation.

And that means events, that are the natural result of the recent transformation that has brought us all into this new era or chapter of our lives, are ready to unfold.

These important events will begin to define this new chapter.

In the greater world, there is so much that is simmering on the edge of the cliff of big change.

The Middle East is so on the edge of jumping off into major conflict.   Russia, Iran, Hamas, Iraq, and Syria are joining together. The USA, Israel, and Saudi Arabia are running counter to those countries.  Something is close to breaking open. Many other countries will be choosing sides as a result.

North Korea and the USA are breaking apart from their Summit’s agreements. China, Japan, and South Korea are greatly affected by th.

China is in a trade war with the USA, who is also in a trade war with many of its allies. The world’s stock markets and economies are dependent on world trade.

There is a serious culture war going on in the USA, and that culture war is separating families, just like happened in the Civil War in the USA

The Mueller investigation is now picking up steam and appears headed for eventual impeachment proceedings.

All of these issues are looking down from that cliff’s edge.

And when it all breaks open, which is a big part of this new era, our world will change and transform in ways that facilitate the consciousness for the Age of Aquarius.

Many who read this have already begun transforming their consciousness and lives in ways that align with this New Age.

And many others will wake up and join the wave of change as our world transforms.

But of course others will get more dug in to the consciousness and ways of the old world paradigm.

That resistance to the new world will cause much turmoil and distress to our world, but it actually is part of the natural process of transformation.

In your own life, when you have been motivated to transform your life through ending of relationships, or jobs, or whatever felt secure; you know you had to move through your own resistance to that change.

And this is a changing of Ages, an enormous earth shaking event for our human family.

Of course there is resistance, especially from those who have known privilege in the old world.  But like it or not, the new age is inevitable.  We can go kicking and screaming or we can instead allow the grace of the Universe to take us forward.

Death of the old is usually feared, and birth of the new can feel so filled with chaos and fear of the unknown.

But the new can also be filled with such feelings of liberation, hope, and joy.   It can bring a clean slate, one that can be filled with new intention and purpose.

Just after we experienced Mercury and Mars going Direct at the end of Eclipse Season, two iconic figures of our collective past died: John McCain and Aretha Franklin.

Death can bring feelings of love and affection for what or who has passed.  The old age and paradigm were not all bad. For most they contained many great memories and many people with whom we shared love.

This week we move through the 4th and last quarter of the Moon, which begins with the Moon in Gemini Sunday September 2.

This last quarter of the lunar cycle, which shows our Moon slowly losing its light, which people all over the globe will experience together, effectively brings an end to Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

In the middle of this light dimming week, Saturn changes direction from Retrograde to Direct on September 6.

Saturn, the symbolic gravity of the hand of time, tells us as it moves direct that there is no running away from time.  And the clock, as Saturn goes Direct, is starting up again, another sign of forward movement for our collective and personal lives.

Then three days later, on September 9 at 2:01 PM EDT, there is the New Moon in Virgo that symbolically begins in reality our new chapter.

It is time to know the changes are real, not just academic or conceptual.

Virgo makes things real, though sometimes that reality is just seeing the glass as half empty instead of half full.

So it will be important now to discern if your attitude is reflective of a need to come down to reality to face the truth, or instead is it a heavy dose of pessimism?

Nevertheless, it is time at this New Moon in Virgo to ground, simplify, and humbly move forward toward manifesting what has only previously been imagined.

For some it will be a time to fix what has been broken, mend what has been torn apart,  and heal what has been suffered.

On a mundane level, many people after the Virgo New Moon go to doctors or dentists or mechanics, etc.

Others feel a need to get down to work and to put more order into their lives.

Virgo time also can bring some people to more worry and stressful self criticism. If the criticism moves you to make needed changes that is good. But if that criticism is not constructive, and instead stresses you to the point of self hatred and/or depression or passivity, it is not right.

It is also end of summer in the northern hemisphere, as Autumn Equinox is only a couple weeks away.  So the Virgo New Moon represents another ending, but also a transition month into the beauty and grace of Autumn.

There are so many temptations in life now that tend to take us away from what is natural. Our devices, our tightly scheduled lives, our sitting down inside our homes and places of work all tend to keep us from what is natural and from our own nature.

Astrology is an extension of nature, a reading of the natural cycles and energies of life.

It can help us to be more a part of what is natural, but it also takes an effort to cross the threshold out of our self contained bubbles of existence, and into the “out of our control” movement of natural forces both inside and outside ourselves. The effort is worth it.

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Retrograde, Spring Equinox and Astrology Forecast March 18-24

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 17, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week with Mars entering Capricorn, New Moon  in Pisces, Spring Equinox and Mercury Retrograde.

This means the energy fields we move within are changing this week.  The changes will shift our consciousness and lives in preparation for the Portal Opening on April 15.

It is obvious now that the greater world and culture we reside within is in a chaotic and not so predictable state of being.   The White House is reflective of this state of being, and it is in shambles, and always in some sort of transition.

And of course whether you feel in alignment with the new Administration or not, this Administration and its volatility are a symbol of the condition of the USA right now.

The Stock Market and economy; the Mueller probe; the porn actress’s accusations; the growing dangers with Iran, Syria, Israel, North Korea; the trade wars; and the macho strutting with Russia and China put all of us on our toes waiting for even greater changes.

We are in the midst of an enormous transformation of the country and world.

Trump is not causing the chaotic climate that makes us ripe for such transformation. He is instead a lead actor on the world stage, just the right actor to help facilitate world events that will take us to the edge of darkness,  so we can call on the Phoenix who will rise from the ashes of our old paradigm’s burning.

Some are already getting into survivalist mode, while others not as alarmed are  still being called to make changes in their consciousness and lives, changes that are aligned with the world we are moving into.

Others of us are not sure what direction to move toward, and are seemingly waiting for events to unfold to show the way.

The next few weeks will not show us clear direction, however, especially so because Mercury is going Retrograde on March 22 at 8:19 PM EDT.

As usual the ‘re’s will in charge during Mercury Retrograde: rewind, reflect, readjust, rebalance, remind, realign.

There is much processing to do now, as it is not time now to move toward bottom line decisions and even bottom line logical answers.

Allow Mercury Retrograde to have you go inward to reflect, to question what has been previously understood or decided, to bring to you memories of the past and to bring back people to you from your past.

The people from the past will likely not stay with you after they return, though sometimes they do.  The questioning of previous understandings and decisions does not mean you will truly change your direction from what you have chosen, but sometimes it does.

The New Moon in Pisces this Saturday the 17th was at 9:12 AM EDT.  Though it is a New Moon, Pisces is not a sign of action to move forward.

Pisces brings everything together in integration and unity, to get ready for the movement forward later, this time after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

Pisces is the sign for the last month of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the transition sign for moving into new beginnings of Spring.

As such we now do soul searching, shadow integration, and getting in touch with deeper feelings;  especially feelings of sadness and grief, of fading memories, of snapshots of previously not remembered early life events.

We face ghosts of the past,  want to resolve old issues, and hopefully find some closure.

This Pisces time we are doing even deeper soul diving than usual, wanting to gather everything together in anticipation of the coming forward movement in our lives, collectively and personally.

There may be some energetic confusion as we also experience the beginning of spring this week.  It is on Tuesday March 20 at 12:15 PM EDT.

This is the first moment of the Sun’s movement into Aries, as it does to begin every Spring Equinox.

Aries is the force of new life buds bursting through the branches. It is a baby being born, a teenager’s awkward movement form childhood to adulthood.  It is a new challenge, a competition, showing a new way, standing up for yourself or what you believe in, being brave even when you are afraid,  fighting the good fight, self assertion, self honoring, alpha attitude, and taking action.

The confusion may come from the fact that Mercury is going Retrograde and there is a need to process and rewind before truly moving forward.

So use this Spring Equinox Aries entry to begin to wake yourself up! Winter is over, even if the weather still feels like Winter.  The turning point energetically is happening this week, so get in touch with that energy and wake your self from the doldrums of Winter, from being kinda depressed from such a harsh and difficult winter.

No need to go fast forward, just wake up. Soon there will be the need for action and for fresh events to manifest. But not now. Even action oriented Mars is being affected by the gravity of Capricorn now.

It moved into Capricorn on the 17th at the New Moon in Pisces. It will stay in Capricorn until May 16, when it goes into Aquarius.

But this year Mars will go back into Capricorn from mid August till Mid September.

The reason is because Mars goes Retrograde on June 26, then retraces its previous steps.

Mars in Capricorn takes away the spontaneous and sometimes impulsive instinct of Mars.

Mars puts on a uniform of military or police when in Capricorn, giving it discipline and boundaries, rules and structure to act within.

So with Mars now in Capricorn, it is time to ground your actions, to make goals and commitments, to organize and plan, to make manifest.

Just remember that we are in Mercury Retrograde until April 15, so there may be some confusion till then, and if you are not that confused, you will still need to wait before manifesting or making absolute statements.

After April 15 the train of our lives starts it engines, but remember that Mercury will just begin to be Direct that day, so total clarity may still need to form, and movement will still not be fast forward. Big events will likely be a few weeks or a few months away then.

So with all this knowledge look at the country and world.  The White House will still be rearranging the deck chairs of its Titanic voyage.

There  will be more employee firings and hirings this coming month, more drama and confusion, more setting the stage for coming events.

Trump is planning to meet with Kim Jong Un in April or May; the USA is moving its embassy to Jerusalem in May. Other important world events will spring forward in April, May and later this year.

Your life and consciousness are working out  what needs to be worked out now. Do your best not to judge your self now or what you did or didn’t do in the past.

Let go of old stories that keep you stuck.  Let go of old stories that make you feel like a victim or loser or failure or horrible person.

The past, no matter what it was, is a stepping stone for your life as it grows and transforms into one of purpose and authenticity, one of love and forgiveness.

Love yourself from all time periods and ages of your life. Have compassion for your self, for the seeming mistakes you might have made. Forgive yourself and others as best you can organically.

It is almost time for us all to move forward more fully into this New Chapter of our lives on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And the less baggage we take with us from our past the better.  No you will not be able to tie a pretty bow on all those traumas and disappointments, disillusions and heart wounds.

But you can forgive, learn to trust enough, and have faith all happens with meaning.

You can gain enough closure to be able to move forward. But do not despair if all has not been worked out to total satisfaction. It never is perfect.

Till next week,

Leo

Half Full or Half Empty and Astrology Forecast December 17-23

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

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The man-made border between years, this transition time between 2017 and 2018, is fast approaching.

I say man-made because nature was not “consulted” in picking January 1 as the beginning of a new year.

In some other countries the first day of spring is considered the beginning of the new year. And of course Spring does feel like new vital energies erupting, like a new beginning.  And the sign that begins every spring is Aries, an obvious generator of new starts.

I think that says much about our culture and its lack of respect for nature, for natural cycles and seasons.

We all too often lead our lives based on what we are expected to do, what we should do, what we desire to do, what the rules or conventional culture “tells” us to do.

In contrast, Astrology is part of nature, of natural cycles and seasons, part of the grand movements of our solar system and Universe.

And this week, which will lead to the holiday season, shows us a turning of tides, a shifting of natural energies.

We are awakened from our collective nap at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 18 at 1:30 AM EST.

Then on December 21 we enter Winter Solstice at 11:28 AM EST. That same day, there is a very rare occasion- Saturn will be conjunct that Winter Solstice point.

Then on December 22, the much awaited Direct movement of Mercury occurs at 8:51 PM EST.

During Mercury Retrograde many shifted their thinking or questioned their previous decisions and chosen directions.

Now after Mercury goes back Direct, and giving it a week or so to go back to normal speed, you will be able to assess if that change of mind sticks or if you need to go back to what was originally chosen.

For some, people and/or memories floated back into their consciousness or life, giving  another perspective on issues in our life.

After Mercury goes back Direct, the fog will begin to lift, clarity will begin to appear.

However, around the day that Mercury actually goes back Direct, it can be especially confusing or disorienting. Let the process play out before jumping to conclusions.

Mercury going Direct will feel like new beginnings, but so will the New Moon in Sagittarius.

The New Moon in Sagittarius on the 17th/18th is a fiery new moon.  Sagittarius is fire that moves where it is inspired to go.  People with a strong Sagittarius influence are free spirits , wanting to follow their intuition, their inspiration, their sense of adventure.

Their challenge is to not leap before they look, to not be too impulsive, to not be so cock sure their opinion is always right.

As we all experience the New Moon in Sagittarius, we will begin to feel joy and upliftment.

Yet to counter that upward spiral of spirit, we are still experiencing the downward spiral of darker and darker days on the way to Winter Solstice on the 21st.

So we may feel a bit torn between hope and optimism one minute, then sadness or negativity later.

Our glass of life is in the process of a changing perspective from half empty to half full.

As we get closer to the Winter Solstice on the 21st, the day is getting darker and darker.  Heavy Saturn goes into its “home” sign of Capricorn on the 19th, just two days before the Winter Solstice Sun in Capricorn on the 21st.

Then later that same day, Saturn in Capricorn conjuncts the Winter Solstice Sun in Capricorn.

That may bring some sadness, some feelings of depression, a negative outlook on life.

But if you stay present for the turn toward the light at 11:28 AM EST on the 21st, you may feel the subtle shift energetically toward more light  minutes of the day.  And the light keeps growing until Spring Equinox when light and dark become equal.

So as the light comes back, the Sun does not open to light as easily as it normally does on Winter Solstice. That is because of Saturn in Capricorn making conjunction with the Winter Solstice Sun.

Saturn stops the full expression of whatever it touches. It is gravity. It is the hand of time. It is rules and responsibilities.

We are still in the reach of the New Moon in Sagittarius, however, so we may be in a loop between manic and depressed, so to speak

Please do not let the situations in the world get you down or feeling hopeless.   Everything is in meaningful order.

We are undoubtedly feeling the cracking open of the concrete structure of the Military/Industrial complex.

Change is wanting to pour in through those cracks which are getting bigger and more plentiful all the time.

This splitting apart is causing huge divisions between cultures, religions, nations, genders, etc.

In America it is being felt as a big split between the left culture and the right culture. There is little thread between them to keep them together.

The yin/yang symbol of wholeness is splitting in two within the old Paradigm.

Get out of the Old Paradigm and its wars. Do not be so quick to choose sides.  In the New Paradigm all is connected, diverse but connected. There is no demonizing of those who are different than us.

There is a much stronger rope between the differences. The yin/yang symbol is whole. There is still black and white, male and female, yin and yang. But those opposites are part of a wholeness of Unity.

This is the Age of Aquarius with its Diversity within Unity.

So don’t see the good guys or girls versus the bad guys or girls. The enemy is not North Korea or Iran or China or Muslims.  The enemy is not white men or conservatives or Christians or people from red states, or on the contrary liberals or African Americans or LGBTQ peoples.

Do not be a part of the cracking concrete of the Old Paradigm of US Versus Them.

Yes stand up for what you believe is right, but don’t be part of a war against those who think differently.

Trust that everything is happening for a reason, that an old world is transitioning into a New World, the Age of Aquarius.

You don’t have to kill the members of the Old World, evolution happens naturally.

Quit thinking Trump all the time like the media does. Trump loves that much attention.  He is not the enemy.  What he represents is what we need to release on a very deep level of our collective consciousness

The MeToo revolution is so needed in our world now, but if it turns to men versus women it loses its way.

There is an old paradigm that believes that those in power and privilege can do what they want and can abuse that power and take whatever they want.

Men and women have both bought into that belief system. Are men predators and women prey?  Are men the perpetrators and women the victims?

What needs to be transformed is believing that is true. And so many men and women deeply believe that as they have been conditioned to believe.

We may have developed that as part of an old paradigm, but in nature it is not true, inherently it is not true.

But if you buy into it, it becomes true for you.

Mercury goes Direct on the 22nd at 8:51 PM EST. Feel the shift and feel the relief. It has been a very difficult Mercury Retrograde this time for many.

As it ends feel the gears in your mind beginning to shift back.   It is a good time to gather our senses, to bring our selves to sanity in this often insane world, and to make our better values our highest priority.

Till next week,

Leo

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

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

Of the People, by the People and Astrology Forecast May 28-June 3

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Things are speeding up and will soon be heating up, figuratively and literally.   The New Moon in Gemini last week signified faster movement forward, especially in contrast to the Taurus cycle which has passed.

Some of you had a difficult day on or around that new moon, as Venus squared Pluto and brought up relationship issues, or living situations that need to be addressed, changed, and moved beyond.

This finishes up what was left of the Venus Retrograde passage that ended mid April when it went back Direct.  Though the Venus aspect last week may have been quite difficult and intense, this week you should be more clear about the status of any important relationships, or real estate and money issues.  For women issues around personal empowerment may have been challenged.  Hopefully you are stronger now and will stand your ground with what you know is right.

Is there new life in a relationship now, or is it time to begin saying goodbye? Is there new life to where you live, or is it time to find a new place? Have you found a way to better handle money and security issues?

In the greater world, everything is getting more messed up.

The Trump presidency is in full swing now, and unless there is a major move toward impeachment soon, his ways will reach full stride soon.

His foreign policies, if we can call them that, are bringing us to a very dangerous position.  North Korea and Iran are in the administration’s crosshairs, and it is building a coalition that will oppose those states as well as Russia and maybe China.

Though France and Iran have chosen more moderate governments lately and put pause to the trend toward nationalism, in the USA the Trump administration is still moving toward nationalism and fascism.  When big security issues come our way, that is when his administration will get more militaristic and dominating of individual freedoms and rights.

The challenge now is for “we the people” to speak loud and clear that this country and world belong to us.

This is the nature of an Age of Aquarius, just as was initiated at the American revolution, at the time when the Aquarian planet Uranus was discovered- 1781.

“Of the people, by the people and for the people”- liberty, equality, and diversity within unity.

The USA natal Moon in Aquarius show us those values.  But now they are for our whole world not just America.

Most especially in August, when the eclipses will be triggering the USA natal Moon in Aquarius, we will need to make our presence strong.

Trump’s Mars and rising sign in Leo will also be triggered then, and those placements are opposed to the USA Moon in Aquarius.

So his Leo stance of narcissistic and individual dominance being more important than all else will be openly opposed to those Aquarian values.

This is the potential negative expression of Leo, not its normal and healthy shining of creative light to all around it.

So moves he makes in and around August will fuel the issue of dominance by authority versus rule by the people.

Interestingly, it is how it all came to be after 1776.  Out with the King.  Bring in new democratic values to replace rule by authority.

Remember that the more chaotic events become, the more leverage “rule by authority” has with the average person. So expect this summer to bring very volatile energies and events, so we can transform old attitudes more consistent with an old age.

This week we are still on our way up, with a waxing Moon moving toward a Full Moon, which will be on June 9, which will be an important turning point day this month.

Mars will oppose Saturn on Sunday/Monday, which gives us a stop or slow down message.

Then on Tuesday/Wednesday Mars sextiles Uranus, which gives us a break out and break free message.  So this week gives us conflicting messages.

Keep things stable or break out and break free?

Venus conjuncts Uranus while the Sun trines Jupiter next Saturday June 3.  So later in the week the messages are more clear.

It is time to bring more energy and change into life, to get out of ruts and inner prisons in our minds.

Especially with what is coming soon, it important we each work on our consciousness and step up our efforts for healing and transformation.

More and more people are being shaken out of their slumber.  The way the world and the USA have been moving lately is a trigger for new wake up calls.

We are not poor victims to the powers that be.

That is not what the colonists felt when they started the American Revolution.

It is not what the French people felt when they overthrew the autocratic royalty in France during the French revolotion in the late 18th Century.

This is not what the Russian people felt when they overcame the Czars in Russia and created the Russian Revolution in 1917/18.

It is not what the Indian people felt when they stood up to Britain behind Mahatma Ghandi in 1930.

It is not what our black brothers and sisters felt when they stood up to the authorities, especially in the South, with Martin Luther King in the ’50s.

It is not what the South Africans felt when they confronted their government authorities along with Nelson Mandela in the ’90s.

This overthrowing of dominating royalty or dictators or restrictive governments has been a trend over the last few centuries.

Those events were the changing winds blowing in for an Age of Aquarius.

More of those liberating events will need to erupt in order for us to manifest more solidly the New Age.

First work on your consciousness and release the programming of your minds and hearts.   Our fears are what cause us to be controlled. Our believing the lies are what cause us to be controlled.

Love and Truth set us Free

Till next week

Leo
