What Are We Waiting For and Astrology Forecast August 25-31

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The greatest  part of this coming week is a continuation of the previous week.  The Moon is still moving down through its darkening, waning half of the lunar cycle.

The Sun is still in a fix-it, mend-it, heal-it, perfect-it, maintain-it, clean it up, make it more orderly Virgo energetic. Venus and Mars have joined the Sun in Virgo, providing even more energy for developing physical purity and critical discernment.

That discernment can feel quite judgmental at times, and judging oneself can be especially hurtful.

A positive use of this Virgo energy is to help you to see the trees in the forest, and each branch and leaf of those trees.  Virgo can gently help make everything be more real; can tell you who or what may not be good for you; and can bum-out any overly romanticized illusion you may have conjured up.

And yes Virgo can be very good at bringing things “down to Earth”, more simple and ordered. It is the most gentle and flexible of the 3 Earth signs.

The 4th quarter of the lunar cycle ends at the New Moon in Virgo on Friday August 30 at 6:37 AM EDT.   It becomes a New Moon because the Moon catches up with the Sun at the same degree of the same sign. In this case it is almost 7 degrees of Virgo.

The slow come-down of the 4th quarter Moon shifts into a let’s get going and get things done New Moon in Virgo.

During the darkening skies, as the Moon finishes the last quarter of its cycle, it is a great time for meditation, intentions, prayers, and positive visualization.

Then when the first sliver of light shows a day or so after the actual time of the New Moon, the new beginnings come alive. Saturday night of August 31 is when that light should appear.

I know you see the grand scale of transformation and change that is brewing in our country and world. I have mentioned many times how the Military/Industrial Complex of the Empire is beginning to transform.

This takes place in the economy and the military/police segments of American society.

The economy showed big signs of trouble this last week with a very aggressive trade war with China breaking open. There is little doubt what we face ahead in the stock market and economy.

And the USA is making enemy of so many peoples. We are isolating from the rest of the world with our current focus on Nationalism. This is what happened just before World War II.  Germany, Japan, Italy and others became much more nationalistic.

On Wednesday August 28 Mars in Virgo makes trine with Uranus in Taurus. This energy should shake things up, but not out of control.  Stuck energies or patterns get some assistance in breaking away.

The next day on August 29, the Sun also trines Uranus, continuing the theme of breaking open what has been stuck or complacent.  And on that same day Mercury leaves Leo and enters Virgo, building up even more Team Virgo.

Late that night, on its way to a new moon the next day, the Moon also enters Virgo.

We are getting used to this new reality we are in.  But more importantly it has been feeling for some time now that we are waiting for something, and that we cannot make decisions or find direction until it happens.

Most of us know by now that the Trump world is real, not an illusion or bad dream.

Virgo will help us now to face up to what is really happening and figure out how to make things better.

Most of the really important work now is in our consciousness.  The parts of our consciousness that are a result of programming received by the culture and family, needs to be released.

Thinking for oneself is essential in the Age of Aquarius.  Diversity within Unity is a pillar concept of the new world. And diversity requires individualism.  And the sign Aquarius is quite arguably the most individualized of all.

Aquarius needs to know and accept that it is different, Often times that may get one to feel they are weird and will never fit in.

And that is the process of Aquarius:  honoring the differences while looking to join with others in unity.

Thinking for oneself often begins by speaking up to parents or other authority figures. There is a rebellion of sorts and a feeling of being different and not needing to be or think what others want you to think or be. The teen years are a usual time for getting more independent and feeling more separate from family and culture.

But at the same time teens are looking for a group or clique or club or team that one feels “at home” in.

And now many people feel lost.  Their old allegiances no longer work for them. They do not know where or how they fit in anymore.

I have been seeing so many families breaking apart over the current political and cultural battles.

Some people cannot understand anyone being for Trump, and are amazed when some family member has that allegiance.

Facebook battles have also intensified, with some really nasty comments made to one another.

People in each camp feel so distant from each other in their beliefs.

I have read in Civil War books how one brother fought with the North while another brother fought with the Confederacy.

It seems almost surreal how many opinions are similar to back then.

The red states, which are mainly in the South, fall in line for Trump and his values and policies.  The blue states, mainly up north and on the coasts, have values more aligned with Obama’s values and policies.

Many of those  red state people really hated Obama, and Trump fed their anger with his claims that Obama was not born in the USA and instead was a Muslim wanting to bring down the country.

And now blue state people hate Trump and want him gone as quickly as possible.

It is Civil War again. Remember that the North won the war, ended slavery and plantations, and tried to bring the country back together again.

But surprising to some, they never did truly come back together again.

Wholeness and connectedness is important for an individual, country, community, family, etc.

A breaking apart, however, is part of the process of transformation.  The old formation is not working anymore, is not healthy or growing and evolving.  This happens with relationships too.

Each member of the relationship is growing in a different direction from the other member. They then either go their separate ways, or else figure out how to come back together from their new states of being. They build a new Wholeness and connectedness, one that has evolved into a better and healthier way of being.

Our country and world are experiencing such a transformation.

And since this is about a changing of Ages, such a big cycle of transformation, after over two thousand years of being in the Age of Pisces; we are collectively changing at the very core of our beings in order to be aligned with this Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Simplicity, Humility, and Astrology Forecast for August 18-24.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week the planets combine in relatively mild ways.

In contrast, summer 2019 has been really intense, violent, with strong breezes of chaos swirling in.

For those not privy to the bigger picture, events in the world would strongly suggest coming attractions of Doom and Gloom.

For many the world events during summer 2019 have brought with them such feelings of Doom and Gloom: the Trump presidency and its seemingly destined trip through an impeachment investigation; serious stock market and economy downward plunges promising a big recession; rhetoric for war between India/Pakistan, Iran/USA, China/USA, and Russia/USA; many mass killings in the USA; culture war between the right and left looking like a potential Civil War on the way. In Portland Oregon today is a big confrontation between far right and far left groups.  Israel is on the verge of major escalation with Palestine now.

And though Trump will not admit it, the danger of conflict between North Korea and the USA has grown this summer with NK blasting out many new rocket launches.

And more than anything else, the world’s leaders show us more and more how they are immature, self serving, unfair, corrupt; and feeling they are privileged and entitled.

The Epstein story, which ended his life this past week, has shown us that too many celebrities, wealthy people, and influential people in our world are without true moral fiber or concern for the most innocent of our human family, the children.

How can one, at this time, justify keeping the old paradigm and age alive?

It is time, as the heavens show us, to let go of that old age and paradigm in our minds, hearts, and consciousness.

We, as a collective, are in decay, as was Rome during the early portion of the now passing Age of Pisces.

As we decay, we need to come back to the lofty the ideals of “we the people”, freedom of the individual, “all people are created equal”, self determination for peoples; and a belief in a Diversity that can be naturally formed into a family of Unity for all.

Love and Truth are there always for us to embrace and live by. if we so choose and commit to.

The old programming from the decaying old age, shows us we live in a dog-eat-dog world that forces us to care only for us and ours.

Sure that may look to be true at times, but it is only true because we have bought into it, made it our reality.

This passing summer has blasted into our faces the cold reality of what we have allowed, what we have enabled.

We must take responsibility for our world, and truly believe in “we the people”.

Yes the old economy is dying. Yes the old power structures in the world are crumbling. And yes we will know what to do as things unfold.

Let love reign in your heart; let truth, “the whole truth and nothing but the truth” be the leader in your consciousness.

World events will continue to pour into our world as we move beyond Summer Eclipse Season 2019.

We now know we must deal with reality and the serious issues we have been shown need to be resolved.

Impeachment, the Economy, the growing Civil War, guns and gun control, frequent mass murders, Climate Change, etc. will continue to wake us up to what we need to do to evolve into the Age of Aquarius.

This week, as previously stated, is relatively mild planetarily speaking.

Since the Full Moon in Aquarius last week, we are now in the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Leo New Moon on July 31, a new moon day that included Mercury going back Direct.

Last week we reached climax from that lunar cycle at the Full Moon in Aquarius.  Energies have been at their most intense surrounding the time of that Full Moon late on Thursday.

Now during the “comedown” we gather ourselves while doing some cleaning, clearing, and acceptance of current reality.

The move into Virgo energies will assist us in that process.

Mars leaves big hearted, often big ego Leo in order to enter the humble, efficient, reality facing energy of Virgo on Sunday August 18

Mars in Virgo can be very to the point direct, which can feel judgmental.  When healthy, it expresses in a way that is quite constructive and fostering of being a master in one’s endeavors  When more toxic and cynical, it expresses in ways that demean and humiliate others or more likely oneself.

You can use this Mars in Virgo to help you better discern what is wrong, what needs to be fixed, and how to fix it. What has happened this summer, and what can we do to make things better.

Mars in Virgo takes action to work and get things done.  Negative Mars in Virgo is obsessive and won’t let anxiety go.

Venus enters Virgo on the 21st. Venus in Virgo attracts people and situations in a real and grounded manner.   It prefers simplicity and being of service.  It is humble, gentle, and sometimes self effacing.

Then on August 23 the Sun begins its annual journey through Virgo.  That means it is time to go back to school; get more serious about work; fix what needs to be fixed; put everything in order; and simplify your life.

Venus conjuncts Mars in Virgo on Saturday the 24th, to show us that the yang and the yin, the male and the female, are in accordance with making a life simple, humble and gently real.

The 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle begins on Friday the 23rd as the Sun goes into Virgo that day.  That 4th quarter Moon is in Gemini, so the mind and nervous system may be in overdrive.

That means anxiety, mental obsession, and obsessiveness may seek an entry into your consciousness and mind for a few days. Keep a lid on it.  Great countermeasures are meditation and Nature and Sky watching.

The world is turning into crisis mode, but you can stay trusting the process and the big picture no matter what.  We are undoubtedly moving imminently into the Age of Aquarius.

The next few years are crisis years, years of intense transition from an old world to a new world.

Trump people wear MAGA hats expressing a desire to make America great again.

What is happening is an attempt by those people to make America what they believe it used to be.

You do know that cannot happen, don’t you?

The world of caucasian men running the world (not just this country) with the obedient women and children strapped to them in undying loyal support is in its death throes.

Minorities will be the majority in 20 years or so.  Women are getting empowered and nothing will stop that.  Globalism (bringing the world closer together) is inevitable.

Nationalism, any kind, will have a short life span.   Capitalism in its current unfair state is in the process of being transformed. More “socialism” will be added to the economic mix, no matter what.

Wars to further one’s aspirations for resources, wealth, and dominance will not last much longer.

The only concern I have is in not knowing how dark and ugly it will get during the transition.

Like a Mother giving birth, it is unknown what the process will be like on the way to the birth.  Some are easy births, some are unbelievably difficult.

We cannot control nature during its moments of crisis, like in birth and death.

But we can learn to have trust and faith in its wisdom and the higher meaning it always brings with it.

Yes, get ready for the ride to get much more bumpy soon.

But likely not this week so much.

Till next week,

Leo

Sparks Flying and Astrology Forecast August 11-17.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on August 10, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week starts out with a bang, as both Jupiter and Uranus change direction. A planet changing directions, either way (to direct or to retrograde), increases its energetic intensity for a few days surrounding the event.

On Sunday August 11, Jupiter goes from Retrograde to Direct, while Uranus goes from Direct to Retrograde.

Energetically,  Jupiter is uplifting, inspirational, big-picture, positive, motivating, expansive, optimistic.

Uranus in its purest form is a feeling of “breaking out” or “breaking through”, liberation,  rebelliousness, radical, revolutionary, individualistic, aware of the greater group or collective.

Both can also be very intuitive and impulsive, not usually checking in with caution or logic before launch.

Around and after the weekend, the “air” will be more clear; taking action will feel more natural; stating one’s truth will be easier and less tempered. Controls are being taken away.

I am sure you have noticed that people are more unhinged lately, and Uranus and Jupiter’s changes are assisting that process now.

Trump has always been unhinged, so it is kinda scary to envision what is will be like for him to lift off whatever or whomever still has some control of him.

USA relationships with China, Russia, Iran and also many of its allies have seriously been shredded during this current administration.

As Mars triggers planetary positions from the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo of 2017 this week, issues with North Korea and China should be in the spotlight.

Also references to Charlottesville in 2017 will be triggered by Mars in Leo, as white supremacy and culture war events are likely again.

The resulting chaos is upon us, which also includes the recent gyrations of the stock market, which  is less predictable now.

Though this breakdown of the Military/Economic Empire Complex may feel scary sometimes; at the same time rushes of new clean light containing energies are wanting to stream through.

More and more people are beginning to rise up to the challenge, and want to assist in transforming this country and world.

Do your best not to join in on the new American Civil War.  That does not mean you need to temper your passion for what you believe in, or to not have preference for a party or person you believe is best to lead our country and world.

But it does mean there is no good reason to demonize and make enemy of anyone or anything.

Yes we do seek to “defeat” the forces of the old paradigm and world.  “Nature”, the Universe, God/Goddess (whatever you believe in), is working its transformational magic all the time.

You will not witness that happening if you are caught up and swallowed up by the dramas that the media, and social media engage in. Everything is made into a contest, competition, battle, or sport.

And each political party is made into a combatant in a battle to the death.

Meanwhile our country and world are going under. Why do we not bring the best minds and hearts all over the world together to discuss the enormously important issues before us: climate change, nuclear weapons, and the sad and frightening fact that our world is in a state of separation from one another.

We have been programmed to believe that all and everyone is disconnected in a random physically and materially dominant world, one without heart and soul and deep connections.

So many are asleep as they sleepwalk through life, looking for the “leaders” to show them the way. This is the metaphor of zombies, just as the metaphor of vampires shows us there are entities (forces, energetics, frequencies) who will suck the life out of you if you do not stay strong,  self honoring and awake.

Having to be “good” and nice or guilty all the time is a disempowering paradigm that has been thrust on us by many religions, societies, and families. We are told we come into our life bad (original sin), but we can become good in our lifetime with Heaven after you are dead as the goal.

How about instead knowing you are a soul with a “rented” body living in a Universe filled with Love and Truth that can be accessed in your now life when you are aligned, in connection with All, and at the same  time true to individual Self.

The Age of Aquarius has open arms, and its “ruling” planet Uranus leads the way.

Uranus, discovered in 1781, coincides with French and American  revolutions that honor the individual as stewards of the world, not kings or queens, dictators, governments or corporations.

It is “we the people” and the world is waiting for us to take responsibility.  In connection with Spirit we are never alone and are empowered as we need to be. In connection with other citizens of our country and world collective, we are surrounded with friends and family.

Do not concentrate or live in fear about mass murderers or stock market crashes or any other horror stories.

We are here for the healing and resolutions, not to wring our hands in anxiety, panic, and despair.

Yes the planets let us know now that much needs to be released, let go of,  purged or even destroyed. And they let us know we need to have trust and faith that we are crossing a threshold into the wonders of the Age of Aquarius.

This week , at the beginning of the week we have sparks of life to awaken us and move us forward as Jupiter and Uranus change directions.  Important world events will follow this week.

Then on Thursday is the Full Moon in Aquarius at 8:29 AM EDT. Full Moon in Aquarius means that the Sun is in Leo directly opposite the Moon in Aquarius.

Sun, Venus, and Mars are all conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon. So the power of personality is likely stronger than community at this Full Moon in Aquarius.

Overall the Leo/Aquarius Full Moon seeks to combine the individual need to be seen and to creatively express itself, with the group need to do what is best for the community or group or society.

In the USA Congress is Aquarius and executive (president) branch of government is Leo.

If they can come together to accomplish for the American people that would be great. So far they have not been anywhere near on the same page.

The USA natal chart from July 4, 1776 has the Moon in Aquarius, fairly close to where this Full Moon is in Aquarius.

USA Moon in Aquarius reflects the American inner values of equality, freedom of the individual, freedom of speech, and a Diversity within Unity higher principle.

Can we reintegrate those values back into our minds and souls? Current issues with immigration demand we get back in touch with those values.

This week will likely be filled with energy and events.  Keep your feet on the ground and your head up toward the heavens. We humans are the link between our Earth home and our connection with the stars, planets, and mystery of the Universe.

Trees are our closest likeness, as they are rooted in the Earth as its branches reach up to the Heavens.

Till next week

Leo

Beyond Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast July 28- August 3

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we experience an important turning point for our collective and personal Soul journeys.

The first part of this week we will continue to walk through the slowdown of the 4th quarter of a lunar cycle, a cycle that began July 2 at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer. The ride has been emotionally charged, especially considering family issues, but also the rights and empowerment of Women.

Since July 7, we have also been experiencing Mercury being Retrograde; and for many that has meant going back over issues that were thought dead and buried.

In that process, many have been questioning previously made decisions, viewpoints, and opinions.

Mercury Retrograde at times is like a mental rewind, a peering back into the past through our dreams, conversations, and waking memories.

This passing Mercury Retrograde has done its job if you have been loosening up on what you previously determined to be true.

And late on July 31 there is a New Moon in Leo while Mercury Retrograde grinds to a halt (is stationary), just as it shifts back into being Direct.

The Leo New Moon on the 31st gets our creative juices flowing, and begins to bring more fun and more hope into our lives.

But that Leo New Moon will also trigger the big egos of the world to come out and try to dominate.

Trump of course suffers from narcissism with his Leo Rising sign and most especially through his Mars in Leo conjunct that Ascendent.

A healthy Leo is open-hearted, shining a bright light of positivity, creativity, and fun.

Distorted and unhealthy, Leo makes everything centered around Her or His own Self.

The Leo New Moon from July 31 (at 11:12 PM EDT), will begin to trigger important events out in the world.

Swirling around in our collective consciousness since around July 2 at the eclipse:  Trump’s potential impeachment; more culture war stemming from immigration and border issues; Iran being put into a hard core enemy slot by hard liners in the USA, Britain, Saudi Arabia,  Israel, etc; democratic party debates on television; more strutting for power and control against China and Russia; and a bubbling (under the surface) economic crisis.

So as we transition this week out of Eclipse Season and Mercury Retrograde, we are as prepared as we can be for the events coming up soon in the world.

Mercury goes Direct on the 31st at 11:58 PM EDT.  We have written in the past that a couple of days either side of Mercury changing direction, can be the most confusing time in the Mercury cycle.

I am sure you will remember the November 2000 Presidential Election Day in the USA, when Bush ran against Gore.

TV station announcers were going back and forth all night between declaring winner to be Bush and declaring winner to be Gore.  This uncertainty about who won went on several weeks before Bush was declared the winner, with Supreme Court assistance.

That was of course a most exaggerated and dramatic showing of Mercury changing directions. It changed direction from Retrograde to Direct that Election Night.  We are not expecting anything near that confusing, but I do suggest you take in the potential confusion that can accompany Mercury changing directions.

And with the New Moon in Leo only 46 minutes sooner than Mercury going back Direct, we can expect an unusual day or couple of days.

The Democrat Party presidential debates happen on the 30th and 31st of July as Mercury transitions into Direct.  The Leo New Moon is in the evening of the 31st, just before Mercury goes into Direct motion.

We can expect communication miscues during the debates, some that will help determine who may eventually win.   We can also expect surprising positive performances that will shake things up even more.

As there is the Leo New Moon on the 31st, we can expect those who naturally shine brightly from their hearts to do especially well.  And we can also expect the biggest egos to come out during the debates this week.

Remember that though there is a fiery New Moon in Leo and Mercury going Direct on the 31st, it is not a time to go fast forward.  Mercury needs a week or more back Direct before you can be assured of full clarity and direction to show.

And the Leo New Moon is only the beginning of the Leo lunar cycle.  Get your motor running,  let creative ideas in, but most importantly at this New Moon in Leo – Open your Heart up wider, which also opens intuitive knowing that the logical mind cannot find on its own.

On August 1 is Lammas,  a sacred turning point in the year that our ancestors celebrated.  It was a time to celebrate the harvest and also is a time half way between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox.

Feel the energy shifting this week, at mid week and beyond.  Something will wake up inside, especially as you let your heart to open more, and to be more relied upon as you continue to go forward in your life.

If you miss magic being in your life, know that an open heart is more allowing of transformational energies to flow through your being. And that will bring the magic with it.

And often relationships seem to hold our hearts and souls captured, keeping us stuck and shut down.

But Venus in Leo square Uranus in Taurus this Friday August 2 shows some promise in opening stubbornly closed hearts.  It also shows some promise in awakening in us the need and way out of old relationship patterns.

Mars in Leo the next few weeks will trigger events that are connected to what was happening in August 2017.  That was the month that brought us the powerful Total Eclipse New Moon in Leo that travelled exclusively through the USA.

Go back to that time period in your life in order to better understand what may be happening with you now.

In the greater world,  the Charlottesville tragedy revolving around white supremacy happened; as well as North Korea war blustering; and Middle East intensity. So be aware of the USA culture war; China and North Korea conflict with USA; and issues with Iran and Israel.  Any or some of these issues will arise again before summer ends. Impeachment moves should get much stronger then also.

So overall, this week pushes us beyond and through what has been blocking our hearts and our movement forward lately.  Much wants to open up and get moving.  Holding on to the past will keep new energies and new events, and new people from coming through.

It is not easy to let go of the past in our hearts and minds- but memories will always be there for you.

Till next week,

Leo

Chaos and Order and Astrology Forecast July 14-20

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 13, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn hits exactly on Tuesday July 16 at 5:38 PM EDT. 

As this is a full moon, the Sun in Cancer is opposite the Full Moon in Capricorn at 24+ degrees of each sign.  Pluto at 21+degrees of Capricorn is conjunct the moon and opposite the Sun.

So this a powerful full moon eclipse.  You can begin to feel or experience a full moon of any kind usually about 3 days before the full moon and up to 3 days after the full moon.

This Full Moon Eclipse has the Sun in water sign Cancer and the Moon in earth sign Capricorn.

Capricorn makes boundaries, rules, and strict definitions more solidly than any sign, while Cancer can spread its energies, moods, and watery feelings without any desire for boundaries, rules or strict definitions

Just take a look at the issues that are already coming into view in anticipation of the Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon Eclipse.

As I write this, a Hurricane is close to making landfall in Louisiana. Its explosive power will bring huge waves of water onto the land, as people try to limit the damage it creates.

And for Sunday the 14th,  Trump has ordered immigration officers to round up immigrants who are seen as invaders breaking the law by being in the country illegally.

I am sure these issues will play out over the next few days, and other issues with the same theme of energies out of control being challenged by boundaries and rules of law.

Put in simpler terms, this can be seen as Chaos versus Order, and at its worst can be experienced as Anarchy versus Fascism.

It sure does feel sometimes as if we are on the verge of a much more intense version of chaos versus order than we are witnessing now.

In your own life, do you need more rules to follow with more discipline? Do you need to assert stronger boundaries and learn to say no more often?

Or do you need to loosen up more, be less judgmental, and allow more freedom of expression around you?

Cancer can be very lenient and unconditional. Capricorn can be a strict taskmaster.

Opposites are not meant to be at war with one another.  They are meant to compliment one another and, to offer different viewpoints,  and like a magnet be drawn to connecting with one another.

Can you see “hot” being at war with “cold”? Should “up” go to war with “down”? Should night be fighting against day?

Opposites are joined by the circle of a Yin/Yang symbol. We have been breaking apart that unifying symbol, and creating war.

Men versus Women is certainly playing out in a big way in our culture now.  They are instead meant to join as one.

But since they have been distorted for such a long time from their natural expression, and programmed to act in overly defined roles,  they are needing to be liberated from those chains of control.

And in so doing, they each have needed to be free to find themselves, their authentic expression.  And that authenticity needs to adjust itself to a rapidly changing world, to a New Age.

So is it any wonder we have women becoming men, men becoming women, and such uncertainty  and fluidity with gender and sexual identity?

Remember that this Eclipse Season is a mere appetizer before the main meal of December 2019/January 2020. There will be two eclipses again with Cancer/Capricorn staying as themes. And also then in January 2020 Saturn and Pluto will make an exact conjunction with one another, and their conjunction will be conjunct the Cancer Lunar Eclipse in January.

And all this is happening in the same section of the zodiac- between 19 and 25 degrees of Cancer and Capricorn.

That means that if you have natal planets between 19 and 25 degrees of Cardinal Signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn you will be going through powerful transformation over the next several months.

This Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn on July 16 is at 24+ degrees of Cancer/Capricorn.

The USA natal Mercury is at 24 degrees of Cancer and opposite natal Pluto at 27 degrees of Capricorn.

So the USA is experiencing a powerful transformation of its liberal (Cancer) and conservative (Capricorn) sides to itself.

This theme is powerfully playing out now, and will continue to do so through January 2020.  This is a true culture war similar to the Civil War of the 19th Century in America. Now we have Blue and Red states playing out the same general themes.

America is finding itself, finding its values.  Who are we now? And how do we now relate  to the rest of the world and to the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius we are transitioning into?

The current inflammatory issues with Iran and China and Russia are of utmost importance now. The issue of having an economic system fair to all is of utmost importance now. The issue of taking care of our Mother Earth is of utmost importance now.

As we move through this important week of the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, while Mercury is Retrograde; it is important to keep our view to the Big Picture.

And that picture shows us that inside all the wars and separations is the truth that all is connected, whether we recognize it or not.  Under the surface lies spirit and soul that fuels and energizes our experience.

Being a part of that connectedness shows us magic, solutions where none could be previously found, signs and synchronicities that show our Universal connections, and of course the Love and Truth that holds us all in its embrace.

If you are having a difficult time making those connections, you know that regular meditation is the best way to take you there and keep you there.  So also can being immersed in Nature, or opening your heart with music and dance, or spending time with babies and puppies and kitties.

Life in this Universe and Earth realm runs on seasons and cycles.  The planets in the heavens run in predictable cycles, here on Earth each season passes into the next.

And amazingly, the Sun and Moon both show up as perfect circles in the heavens, as viewed from Earth.

Straight lines begin and end; circles show continuation.  And only relatively recently did we know that the Earth was round, an important symbolic discovery.

And now we in the process of experiencing one of the biggest cycles: changing of the ages.  That now is a Pisces Age changing into an Age of Aquarius- a 2160 year cycle.

The election in November 2020 leads into the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius in December 2020.  This is a turning point toward the Age of Aquarius, not all perfect, but nevertheless a solid sign all is progressing as it should.

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season Begins and Astrology Forecast June 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A bugle sounds for us to wake up from hiding this week.  As the bugle sounds, the first strong winds of Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begin to blow in.

The first of 2 eclipses, however, does not arrive until July 2; nevertheless, the Full Moon in Sagittarius this week on Monday the 17th opens up the Eclipse Season. And Summer Solstice is also this week on Friday the 21st.

Summer Solstice on the 21st is at 11:54 AM EDT. This day is the day when light is at its greatest and dark is at its least.  But dark minutes start growing right after the Summer Solstice and light begins to retreat.

Summer Solstice is also the beginning of having the Sun in Cancer for the next 30 days. The Sun in Cancer, the sign of Mother nature, shows us a time when Nature is in full bloom at its most abundant.  Cancer is a sign of nurturance, like a Mother feeding a baby.

Cancer likes to be taken care of or to take care of others, and at its best loves unconditionally.  At its worst it lacks boundaries and can hover over those it loves, giving them little room to breathe- hence the word s-mother.

This is a good month to be with family, whatever family truly means to you.  Being supportive and being supported is in line with Cancer too.

The next 9 months or so will thrust us forward into new dimensions of Love and Truth, even as darker realities burst some bubbles of our illusions.

This Summer Eclipse Season 2019 will last into August, and it will bring with it the beginning of presidential debates in preparation  for Election Day in November 2020.

Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 will be a climactic time period, which will include the powerful and important Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12, 2020.  That conjunction will be right after and conjunct the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon In Cancer on January 10, 2020. (See webinar information below).

Right now, this week we awaken our spirits and souls with the Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius, which is only one day after an important Jupiter/Neptune square.  That square has Jupiter in Sagittarius (its favorite place to be) squaring Neptune in Pisces (its favorite place to be) on Sunday June 16.

And both Jupiter and Neptune are part of the signature of the Sagittarius Full Moon the next day on June 17.  Jupiter is widely conjunct the Moon, while Neptune in Pisces is square that Moon.

This is a lot of energy opening up. It may feel chaotic at times for some. Others may experience an opening into spiritual dimensions, with increased signs and synchronicities from the Universe.

The Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon is usually one that opens up the mind and stimulates a need to find resolution, meaning and understanding, even in the face of much information to sort out.

Lively conversation is usually opened up during this Sag Full Moon.  Jumping to conclusions is common during this lunation.  Enhanced intuition and rapid fire thinking are common at this full moon.

With Jupiter and Neptune also involved, some will get confused and/or out of usual mental balance.

If you can surrender your need to keep an agenda or fixed paradigm, you may open to new perceptions and judgments that will assist your growth.

And surrender is a good strategy for this week, a surrender to something greater and to a bigger picture of what is happening.

You may also this week get a good sense of what this Summer Eclipse Season is all about for you and for our world.  What issues are needing to be focused on?  What needs to be changed or transformed?  What needs to be released? What do you need to let in?

Eclipse Seasons always shake us out of status quo reality and thinking. They take us off our usual balance so we can be more vulnerable to growing and evolving. They bring a greater energetic intensity too.

Besides the Solar Eclipse on July 2, there is a Lunar Eclipse on July 16; and mixed in with it all is Mercury being Retrograde from July 2 through July 31.

Back to this week: We have Jupiter square Neptune on Sunday June 16 (though it will be felt most of the week); Mercury making aspects to Neptune, Jupiter, and Saturn- also on the 16th.

Neptune is slowing down now to go Retrograde on Friday the 21st- the same day as the Summer Solstice. When a planet slows down to change directions its energy is much stronger. Confusion, chaos, as well as deeper insight and psychic abilities are enhanced with a strong Neptune. The Inner Kingdom beckons.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius is on the 17th, merging with the aforementioned Neptune aspect of the 16th. It may be too easy for some to be overwhelmed with information and details now.

It may also be challenging for some to find truth within all the clashing information and energy shifts.

That search for truth is our reality most of the time now. Everyone (most especially news media) is pushing an agenda and few seem to be interested in what is real or true if it does not fit into the agenda.

On Wednesday the 19th the conjunction of Mercury and Mars opposes Pluto.  That is a very intense combination and very powerful.  There is more likelihood to be involved in a war of words this week in our personal life conversations. Anger is too easy to feel and express now- be careful.

Even more dangerously, a war of words out in the world is getting more likely now.  Even before this week, the USA and Iran have been thrust into near war.

The USA leadership is obviously setting us up for war with Iran, as it did similarly with Iraq and Libya. Remember Iraq being said to possess weapons of mass destruction?

Can “we the people” be that stupid again?  The USA and Western World made an agreement with Iran under the Obama administration, and Iran is said to have complied.

Trump unilaterally “tore up” the agreement and now through increasing sanctions is pushing Iran into extreme economic  difficulty.

We have made greater enemy of Russia and China also, with economic sanctions and tariffs on each of them.

Remember however, that all this Old World separation and enemy making is not our future. We are needing a deep purge of this old fecal matter from our collective unconscious.

The dark in our world is growing inside its walls of separation, while at the same time light is pushing through the cracks of those walls, wanting to inspire us to leave the darkened walls and to create a new world out in the fields of Nature.

That Nature so needs our loving embrace now, and we need its embrace too.  The technological world we are building must stop its movement away from having healthy bodies and a healthy Earth to live on.

Technology has a very important role in the Age of Aquarius, but without a healthy Earth and healthy human bodies and souls to cradle it, all will vanish.

These next 9 months are crucial for what will happen on Election Day and after.

Let’s get a good start on it all this week as Summer Eclipse Season 2019 commences, as Summer Solstice occurs too.

The “reality” of the mainstream culture is distorted and toxified now.   It is an old paradigm that we have been programmed into.

George Orwell was divinely inspired to write the book 1984.  Look around at our world now. So many have forgotten how to truly think for themselves, on both sides of thinking.  There is a conservative agenda’s mantra to follow and uniform to wear. And there is a liberal political correctness to follow and uniform to wear.

The New Age thrusts us outside the boxes, so we can think and feel for ourselves

Remember the movie Truman’s World with Jim Carrey?  He was programmed from birth to believe real life was what he was experiencing every day. But his “real life” was just a set for the TV program he was constantly the star of, 24 hours a day- every day.  His view of nature was in reality a made up television set.  On the edges of the set, however unbeknownst to him, curtains could be opened to view and enter true Nature and the Real World.

There is no Age of Aquarius until enough people have left the programmed set and seen the beauty and wonder beyond the walls.

Truth and Lies and Astrology forecast June 2-8

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

There is a New Moon in Gemini on Monday June 3 at 6:02 AM EDT.  On June 2 we are under a dark Moon, and that will also be true on the day of that New Moon in Gemini on the 3rd.

In fact new moons, signifying new beginnings, do not really start until we can see a sliver of lunar light.  That will be no later than the evening of June 4.

During dark moons, it is usually a prime time to meditate with affirmations and/or visualizations, to make strong intention of whatever is important to you at the time.

This New Moon in Gemini shows us a good time for giving, attending, creating, and planning for classes, webinars, workshops etc.  It is also a good time for reading and studies.

Gemini is “ruled” by Mercury, called the messenger of the gods; so Gemini time periods are about working with issues of communication.  Gemini loves words, so for most Gemini’s writing and talking are very important to them.

Gemini is an air sign, and as such it is in the head a lot , concentrating  on thinking and figuring out.  Air signs are also often social butterflies, seeking light and care free social interactions.  Gemini is the air sign most like that butterfly who goes from flower to flower, more so than the other two air signs Libra and Aquarius.

And Gemini needs many interests, and being that way motivates many of them to go from one thing to another,  even one thought to another, or one person to another.

When they are in their normal rhythm they are light and airy, effortlessly delivering information to others and bringing in new information too.  They are fact based and detail oriented.

The challenge for many Gemini’s is to slow down or stop the “monkey mind”, especially during meditation. It can get overwhelmed with information being collected in its mind.

It loves a good mental challenge, and curiosity is one of its motivations for learning new things. It is the questioner, and it is in its default nature to question most everything.  Sometimes that means it is challenging someone’s information or opinion, but sometimes it is just geared to ask questions for no deeper reason.

So now as we move through the Gemini New Moon this week, it is a good time to think about classes, learnings, friendships, starting something intellectually stimulating, reading a new book, or getting up the courage to speak up and communicate what is on your mind. Gemini does not usually like emotional confrontations, however.

Not long after  this New Moon in Gemini, Congress will question AG Barr and/or special prosecutor Mueller, and others in preparation for impeachment.

The Military/Industrial Complex foundation is showing immense cracks, ready at any time to begin to crumble.

The stock market went way down last week, and war cries against Iran got much stronger.  The USA trade war with China and Mexico heated up last week, as did their war of words with China on other subjects. And North Korea is back up in the Empire’s consciousness as it shows increasing animosity for the USA administration.

I say all this to show you that over the next 9 months or so, Pandora’s Box will break open with some major world event(s), ones that will change the world.

Intensity increases during an Eclipse Season,  and this one will have its first breezes of change after this New Moon in Gemini.

The first actual eclipse will be on July 2,  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer at 10+ degrees.  The 2nd eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn at 24+ degrees.

But the most powerful shake-up will occur late Autumn 2019, early  Winter 2020.  It is a huge turning point for the world. That Eclipse Season will open The Box if not yet opened.

Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn will make its only exact conjunction in January 2020, the day after a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon as Uranus goes direct that day also.  (Webinar I am giving on June 22 will talk about all that, the powerful changes in the world as a result, and a look at each participant’s chart to see how they may each be affected in their own personal life.  Noon-4:30 $120.) Write me at soulus@aol.com to sign up.

There is no way anymore that we can put bandaids on the big issues and conflicts.  They are all coming to a head, so to speak.  There are so many enlightening waves of energy filled with hope and the magic of Universal signs and synchronicities under the rock solid box of an old world’s status quo. That box is breaking open soon and dark and light will all be released together for each of us to sort through in our consciousness.  The Age of Aquarius is a creation made from it all.

This week with the New Moon in Gemini, new information will begin to make itself known.   Facts greater than all the lies and fabrications will be available to those aligned and looking for truth.

Neptune is square to the New Moon in Gemini, so there will some confusion and distortions to work through.  If you can let go and surrender your left brain need to obsessively get to the logical truth, what you need to know will unfold itself and present itself when you are ready to receive.

Each media source operates more from an agenda than from a desire for the facts and truth.   Julian Assange represents someone who has worked to get the truth of what our governments and authorities hide from “we the people”.

These “authorities” are trying to silence him or put him away. He now is extremely sick and maybe even dying. He represents freedom of the press and its duty to deliver us truth beyond the programming. Now each of us must be responsible to find these truths for ourselves.

Look closely and deeply this month for what is true and what is not, and do not let your political persuasion influence you.  This Gemini lunar cycle is mainly about the facts and communication of them. Next month the Eclipses shake things up and out of same-old, same-old.

Till next week
