Open Portals of Change, and Astrology Forecast April 9-15.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have arrived into the New Chapter.   We let you know a few weeks ago that the Aries New Moon on March 27 was the window out into this new chapter, and that big world events would soon follow.

So this last week America bombed Syria, and as usual found a “good” reason to do so: chemical weapons used on innocent Syrian people.  Yet the week before this atrocity, the USA dropped bombs in Iraq that killed many innocent people too. Now that has been effectively put aside in most minds through media silence.

Throughout history, perpetrators most always have found a “good reason” to kill or otherwise harm people.

Hitler believed he was creating a superior race that would bring progress to the world.

Bush II believed that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction- which did not exist.

Trust me on this-  Killing people in other parts of the world, when one is not really having to defend their country from attackers, has more ulterior motives behind it.

This bombing was a power play intended to show the world, most especially North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China, that the USA is back as the baddest guy in the neighborhood (“Make America Great Again”). It also takes people away from believing Trump and Putin are in a bromance.

Regardless of the reasons, this is the event that takes us into this new chapter, as it will be the event that begins to unhinge Pandora’s lid to its box.

Many events that will shake up the world in many ways will result from this event.

As old age and horrible as this bombing is, now is also a time of opening up the portals to higher consciousness and new ways.

We are waking up now out of our “comfort” zones, seeing more clearly, and getting activated to get moving and get doing.

If you focus on what is opening up for you and us collectively, and not on the world dramas, you will be OK.

Fear, hatreds, and most importantly programmed ways to think and feel, will hold you back and keep you stuck in old ways and old patterns.

There are two ways to go in this new chapter now.  You can get all wrapped up in the world dramas, taking sides, getting into winner versus loser consciousness; or you let the new energies and frequencies take you further into Love and Truth consciousness, and the ways of the Age of Aquarius.

There is a trust and faith necessary to do that:  trust and faith in the Universe, your better self, and your fellow soul traveller.

I know some of you will want to get involved in that old world for perhaps idealistic and altruistic reasons of your own.

Please do not do so if you are prone to losing your detachment, getting overly emotionally involved, feeling much fear or hatred, or getting taken off your new world path and/or your spiritual path.

It is important now to keep the focus on what is truly important.  Continuing our journey of transformation out of old consciousness and old ways, and creating and embracing new consciousness and new ways, is very important now.

Opening your mind and heart to the new light wanting to stream in is an important part of the journey now.

Love and Truth are what are wanting to flower in each of us.  The old energies, patterns, programs, beliefs, paradigms are ready to be released- one step at a time.

As we clear those blocks, there is more room in our inner channels and portals for the new energies to move through.

All we have been taught by society is open for questioning now.  Where we came from and where we are going is open for discussion.

We once believed the world was flat and then believed it was round.  And that level of new discovery is ready for us again.  And many of these new vistas sit inside us as new frequencies, new energetics, new soul pathways.

This week April 8-15, we encounter some major shifts: Mercury Retrograde, Venus Direct, and Full Moon in Libra.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Sunday April 9 at 7:14 PM EDT.  Venus will still be Retrgrade then.  

So from April 9- April 15 both planets will be retrograde.  On April 15 Venus goes direct, at which time only Mercury will be retrograde- until May 3 when it goes back direct again.

So this week ahead may get really unclear at times, especially around relating and relationships, and linear thinking.

You may tend to go back and forth on issues, or want to jump to conclusions too fast.

Do your best to wait and let issues brew longer if possible.  After April 15, when Venus goes Direct, relationship issues and security/home issues will begin to clear up.

But with Mercury still Retrograde, not all issues in all ways will be clear yet.  Be patient and trusting of the process.  Linear bottom line thinking is not as useful during Mercury Retrograde.

And as Venus Retrograde brought a rewind and reflection on relationships and people from the past, Mercury Retrograde also can create dreams, thoughts and in the flesh people coming back from the past.

So you can see the potential pattern:  Moving forward into new worlds and consciousness, while also reflecting on the past.

What from your past and present needs to be released?   What can you take with you on your soul’s journey going forward now?  Let the process unfold to show you the way.

Please do not overthink or try to figure it all out in your head during the retrograde time period.  Be satisfied with processing and going deeper for more insights.

That will help you to know what is best, not just in your head, but also in your heart and soul.

To further shift the energies and view this week, there is a Full Moon in Aries/Libra on April 10/11 at 2:08 AM EDT on the 11th.

Uranus in Aries will be strong in this Full Moon, so there may be some important awakenings that occur this week, shifting us outside of old boxes that have kept us locked up in self defeating thoughts and beliefs. Pluto in Capricorn will also be strong in this Full Moon.  So powerful transformational events and emotions may also erupt this week.

With the Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra in this Full Moon, we are trying to balance being true to ourselves and what we believe in on the one hand; while on the other hand truly listening and caring what is important to someone else.

Finding one’s personal empowerment and independence within a relationship is also a potential issue to be addressed this week.

We are filling up our cups of life now with more energy and action. The greater world is also getting more activated with events and movements.

We are ready for this now.

I will be doing a video conversation with David Lonebear Sanipass on the 15th at 2:43 PM, which David says is a time of cosmic importance. And of course also on the 15th Venus goes Direct.  David and I will be discussing the big shifts in the world and in our personal lives at this powerful time to be alive.  We will make that video available to others soon after.

till next week,

Leo

Settling Into New Reality and Astrology Forecast March 12-18.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 11, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week should be much tamer, and less stressful and intense than it has been over the last several months.

For those of you affected by the current Venus Retrograde movement, however, relationships may still bring you some intensity and perhaps stress.

The week starts out this Sunday with a Full Moon in Virgo, which means that the Sun is in Pisces and is directly opposite the Full Moon in Virgo.

This Full Moon in Virgo is at 10:54 AM EDT.  It is the first day of Daylight Savings Time for most of the USA.

This annual Full Moon in Virgo is usually pretty gentle and soft.  I have no reason to believe it will be any different for most people this year.

Both Virgo and Pisces are signs that are meant to keep egos from getting too big.  Pisces can be very selfless and surrendered, and Virgo is at its best when keeping things simple and humble.

So this Full Moon in Virgo will serve you best if you keep your ego in check and concentrate more on your job or being of service.

Now of course Venus in Aries has other aims.   It is bold and proud and concentrates on being true to Self and empowered.

So you might feel both extremes in the few days surrounding this Full Moon.   You will have a pull to stand tall and hold your ground, while also wanting to be humble and allowing of others.

Do not be afraid to assert yourself now and assert your needs. Just do your best to do that in a way that the other person will hear and take in.

Good communication is not just about self expression. It is also about listening and being aware of those you are communicating to.

There has been so much change and so much new to get used to in the world over the last several months.

The election of Donald Trump to be President represents a major turning point for our country and world.

Everything now is much more out in the open, and for better or worse people are speaking their minds now without as much filter or control.

This of course can be very dangerous as Pandora’s Box of previously suppressed emotions has broken open.

There is much more hatred shown lately and violence often feels more on the verge of erupting.

This is also happening in the greater world, as Iran and North Korea are rattling their sabers, in large part as a reaction to the new USA administration’s more militant posture.

South Korea had its President impeached this last week, and it is unpredictable how China and especially North Korea will react to that.

The USA intends to put up in South Korea a missile shield and both China and North Korea have threatened reprisals if that happens.

Since Trump was elected both North Korea and Iran have tested long range missiles, in defiance of International rules.

Before this coming summer is over much of this tension will come to a head.  And also new economic realities will show themselves before this year is out.

August is the most intense month this year, and it could be extremely powerful as there are two elipses including a most important Total Solar Eclipse in Leo that will cross all the United States for the first time since 1918.

This turning point of Trump’s election is part of the planetary movements that require our human family to experience a deep transformation.

That transformation at its best will help us to heal and to reset our priorities and hence the paradigm we operate within.

Our Earth has been beaten up, our environment and oceans made so toxic, and our human family more and more self destructive.

Weapons of mass destruction, might makes right beliefs, and such a wide separation between sexes, religions, nations, cultures, families and races make a danger for us all.

We must be ready now to evolve into states of mind and consciousness that see us all as connected, all part of the same Earth family, living in a sacred world and a meaningful Universe.

The differences between us must be honored and respected, but must not separate us from the unity of heart and soul that is always there ready to be recognized and felt.

This is Diversity within Unity and is the light of consciousness wanting to stream into each of us as a foundation for the Age of Aquarius.

Also part of the Age of Aquarius is computers, technology, and internet. This will likely not go away, it will likely instead keep expanding.

If it does go away, it will be because it has not been integrated with our bodies, our Earth and our needs for intimate connection with one another.

If we continue to create electronic bubbles for ourselves that keep us separate from others and our deeper souls and bodies, then all will crumble and die.

It is not the technology that is bad, it is what we are doing or not doing that is damaging to our hearts, souls, and intimate relationships.  Our Earth’s nature and creatures are also endangered by our disconnection.

True empathy is our potential savior now,   As we are able to feel the reality of other beings, we make the deeper connections that transform our world into a new paradigm and age. Diversity within Unity becomes a healthy reality.

If we continue to live in US versus Them consciousness, we will end up destroying one another when “push comes to shove”, which is not that far away.

Though this should be a tamer week than usual, we still are dealing with Venus Retrograde issues, and end of Winter Pisces deeper reflections.

Mid week could get somewhat more emotionally intense as the Moon goes into Scorpio from Wednesday through most of Friday.  

You may also experience some “stop signs” when the Sun squares Saturn on Friday.

And late Friday into Saturday will bring a strong tendency to tell it like it is in a frank and straight forward manner as Mercury conjuncts Venus Retrograde early Saturday the 18th

Then next week on the 20th,  Winter officially ends at the Spring Equinox as the Sun moves into Aries.

We will talk more about that next week.

A Step Beyond and Astrology Forecast September 11- 17.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

Staying on the Path and Astrology Forecast September 4-10

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 3, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo has now passed, but we are still very much within the Eclipse Season. There is another eclipse on September 16: a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Pisces.

I know many of you noticed that right on the day of the eclipse on September 1 Hurricane Hermine hit Florida; there was a 7.2 Earthquake in New Zealand; and there was a terrorist attack in the Philippines.

The intensity was very strong leading up to the eclipse. Now as we are a few days past it, the intensity has lessened.    But that does not mean that powerful world events will stop too.  We can expect big world events to continue all the way through September at least.

In fact there was a 5.6 earthquake in Oklahoma on Saturday the 3rd of September.  The USA can now expect many important and potent events to occur in the country between now and August 21 2017, especially close to the actual date of August 21 2017.

On that date there will be a Total Eclipse of the Sun in Leo.  That eclipse will “travel” exclusively across the USA and will closely oppose the USA natal Moon in Aquarius.

The parts of the world that an eclipse travels over are the places most apt to experience the important events. The Moon in any natal chart is the planet that provides feelings of safety, comfort, and emotional well being. Those feelings will be challenged here in USA.

So expect our country to go through great change over the next year or more.  And of course the Presidential election will bring big change no matter who is elected, especially so if Donald Trump is elected.

Remember last year when I predicted with my planetary formula that Trump would win the Republican nomination, even though at the time he was one of 17 candidates and not even remotely considered a favorite to win.

I also wrote that Trump would likely win the Presidency if there were major events that would erupt in our country prior to the Presidential Election, events that would severely threaten USA security- like terrorist attacks or market crashes.

I believe that because Trump’s natal chart is closely tied to the USA natal Mars and Pluto, symbols of its power and strength in the world.

Eclipse season will either bring us such events or will at least give us some clues as to what to expect between now and the election.  And whomever becomes the next president will inherit a USA that will be going through major and difficult transformational change, especially leading up to the Total Eclipse on August 21 2017.

The structure of our world for an Age of Aquarius requires a world of equality and Diversity within Unity.  Many world changes will occur in order to make that happen.

We each individually will also be challenged to grow and transform during that time period.  All of this is a part of the accelerated change happening on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

This acceleration began in the early Spring 2014 when there was an eclipse that formed with other planets to become a Cardinal Grand Cross.

In the world at that time Islamic State invaded Mosul Iraq and declared itself a state and Caliphate in conjunction with its captured land in Syria.  This was the beginning of seeing the strength of Islamic State.

Also Russia at that time invaded Ukraine, upsetting the settled boundaries. This began a rift between western countries in Nato and Russia.

And China around that time was declaring land around the China Sea as its property against the beliefs of Philippines, Viet Nam and other Asian countries

Also soon after the Cardinal Grand Cross, there was a police killing of an unarmed black man in Ferguson Missouri that set off major riots.

All these issues are still unsettled and promise more potent events and transformational changes.

In our own lives most of us have entered into a New Chapter of our lives since March 2014. We have gone through much change, and in the process a letting go and releasing of that which represented the passing chapter in our lives.

The Universe is helping each one of us to transform our consciousness and lives in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

We are being shown the way to our more authentic Self and more authentic lives.  Homes, relationships, schooling, and careers have been changing as a result.

So now in the continuing process of transition into a New Season or Chapter of our lives, we become challenged to let go and release some more of what no longer fits who we are becoming.

And we will receive more magic, more synchronicity, more signs and symbols to inspire us on the path into our new consciousness and lives.

As we are still in Eclipse Season, while Mercury is Retrograde (till September 22), it is important for each of us to be flexible, to be more open in our hearts, and to not let our left brain logical minds to stress too much in order to squeeze out answers and solutions.

Let the process unfold over the next few weeks and be patient about receiving clarity  and direction.

This week we add a few new important planetary events.

The biggest is another exact square between Saturn and Neptune. As we explained in previous forecasts, there is a conflict between needs for security (Saturn) and desires for transformational change (Neptune).  Saturn is boundaries, rules, and regulations. Neptune is borderless, with needs to have more empathy and to trust and “let in”.

Issues in the world about immigrants and strict boundary control plays out within the USA and also within Europe, as well as with Islamic State changes of boundaries in Syria and Iraq.

In our personal lives our boundaries may be threatened by others; emotions may be out of control; ; conflicts between being firm and being empathic; and conflicts for following rules and being responsible versus wanting to escape so much anxiety and stress.

Also this week on Friday September 9 Jupiter enters Libra for a year, after having been in Virgo this past year.

Jupiter in Virgo is inspired by more order, efficiency, and logical analysis.  Jupiter in Libra is inspired by balance, equality, fairness, beauty, peace and most of all relationship.

This coming year is a good year to work on relationships of all kinds, and to find the connecting links between people and between all things.

Stay on your path this week no matter what is going on around you and inside you.

Till next week,

Leo

Hand of Time and Astrology Forecast August 7-13

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have passed through the gate of a New Moon in Leo from August 2. On August 18 that New Moon from August 2 will become Full- A Full Moon in Aquarius.

That will be an important Full Moon, as it begins a new Eclipse Season.  That Full Moon in Aquarius blows in the first winds of change connected to the issues that will dominate our consciousness during this new Eclipse Season.

The first Eclipse will be on September 1.  It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo.

The second and last Eclipse for this Eclipse Season will be on September 16.  It is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Pisces.

So we can expect another round of important and intense world events soon again.   There will likely be a continuation of issues around police treatment of African Americans,  and anger toward the police.

There will also likely be a continuation of terrorist events.

And of course the Presidential election process will intensify, though it seems hard to imagine it getting any more intense.

There will also likely be new world events that continue to shake up our reality and consciousness and help us to more greatly transform into the Age of Aquarius.

The economy and stock market could be vulnerable for change, especially so if interest rates are increased in September by the Federal Reserve.  The really volatile Middle East could also be ripe for new eruptions.  Also North Korea and China are getting more and more angry with neighboring countries, as well as western governments- especially the USA.

Turkey and  Russia and their roles in Syria could also be in the spotlight.  And of course events will likely erupt that will be complete surprises.

Just know that Eclipse Seasons accelerate the process of change and transformation in the world and in your personal life.

We have entered a big new chapter or season of our lives.  The transition time has been from Spring 2014 to now.  Look back at your life prior to Spring of 2014 and look at it now.

Look at the world prior to Spring 2014 and look at it now.

Islamic State was unheard of  and Ferguson had not happened yet, whch triggered all the racial tensions.  Russia had not invaded Ukraine and upset its relationship with the western world and Nato.

So now we are in an important new chapter of our collective and individual lives, a new chapter on the way toward the Age of Aquarius.

What still needs to transform in your life to make you aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius and also aligned with your own authentic higher self and its natural soul journey?

What is not aligned in your life now?  Are your relationships healthy?  Are your family connections other than dysfunctional?  Are you in a career or job that is satisfying and aligned with your true self or are you there just to surive financially?

Do you have love in your life or are your relaionships just relationships out of habit?

Are you still controlled by old belief systems, and patterns of behavior that keep you stuck?

Do you feel like your life is a rerun every day, with “Groundhog Day” repeats?

Do you put up with relationship patterns that are so dysfunctional that they are not heart or feeling connected anymore?  Do you just go through the motions without real connection?

Well, it is possible that the approaching Eclipse Season will break down some of these old ways and provide you with breakthroughs into new mindsets and ways.

In fact Eclipse Seasons usually do have breakdowns and breakthroughs, some small and sometimes rather large life changing ones.

Before we hit into Eclipse Season, however, we find ourselves in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Leo on August 2.    That Moon continues to wax and grow until the Full Moon in Pisces on August 18, at which time it begins its waning half of the cycle.

This Leo New Moon lunar cycle wants us to get more into our hearts and creative expression.  It beckons us to trust more and live from our spontaneous hearts and not so much from our calculating heads.

Have Leo fun this remaining summer, while it still lasts here in the Northern Hemisphere of Planet Earth.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 1 will herald the call to get more into work and to create more order in our lives.  But that’s almost a month away.

There are only minor aspects this week, until Saturday when Saturn goes from Retrograde to Direct.

Saturn is gravity, but also the Hand Of Time.   So the clock of the Universe begins to tick again on Saturday.

You may feel or see events that seem rather fated around that date.  Saturn gives a sense of greater definiton, of rules and regulations that need to be followed.  It can make us also feel more secure, stable and grounded if not trapped and controlled.

Try to get a sense at around the Saturn turning of what new resolutions, intentions and commitments you want to make for your self and your life.

The Universal Hand of Time lets you know that time is limited and that you cannot keep putting off or procrastinating that which is important to you and your soul’s growth.

Till next week,

Leo

Mutable Grand Cross New Moon and Astrology Forecast June 5-12

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are experiencing an important New Moon in Gemini on June 4 at 11 PM EDT.   The lunar cycle it begins will stretch through Mars going Direct on June 29.   And most importantly it forms a Mutable Grand Cross that includes Saturn square Neptune.

The Grand Cross has the Sun, Moon, and Venus in Gemini;   Saturn opposing those planets in Sagittarius;  Neptune squaring both those position in Pisces;  and Jupiter opposing Neptune and squaring the other planets from Virgo.

Grand crosses pull us in 4 different directions. The best way to handle one is to let go and take the ride, not try too hard to figure things out or control things.

In this case the 3 Gemini planets seek to receive and deliver information; Saturn in Sagittarius seeks to put information together into a defined opinion or conclusion;  Neptune in Pisces seeks to let go and trust;  Jupiter in Virgo seeks order.

All these planets together in mutable signs tell us to let go to the winds of change.  There is so much change in the air now as we all adjust to this new chapter of experience we find ourselves in.

As we gather new information and insights, we are searching  for ways to find some answers and conclusions.  But there is a tendency now to focus too much on solving issues. This can bring us to mental overload and being obsessed.   Neptune seeks to help us to surrender our chattering minds or to find escapes or indulge in addictions. It is best now to trust the process while believing the answers will come in at just the right time.

This Grand Cross New Moon, however, should be good for interesting conversations, for lively discussions with differences in opinion.

It may also be a good time for new ideas or ways of thinking and seeing things.

This is the last New Moon before Mars goes Direct, and it represents us revving up our engines before we drive more fully forward after June 29.

This is also a good time to be aware of messages from spirit, to be aware of signs, symbols, and synchronicities.   One should be open to changes of mind too.

Saturn square Neptune within the Grand Cross shows us order versus disorder and boundaries and limits versus openness and porousness.

The greater world is in such disorder now trying to find its way.  Ther is an old system that is running out of steam.  There is little honesty, integrity, and heart inside the empty old structures.

The Republican and Democrat parties are representative of this old system.  Bernie Sanders is a voice outside the sytem, as up to this year he has indenified with being an Independent Senator.

The Libertarian and Green parties also represent more pure and uncorrupted voices outside the system.  But how much chance do its candidates have? If the dominating and controlling debate committees run by the Democrat and Republican parties found a place on the stage for other parties to participate in Presidential debates, the American public would benefit greatly.

But I think you can see the Saturn/Neptune square playing out in the presidential race.  The Old Guard has been trying to maintain the old order, while candidates like Trump and Sanders are bringing new ways that are bringing with them more chaos and disorder and even riots.

As we get into the political conventions this summer, order versus disorder wil play out even more, and who knows how it will all pan out in this New Era.

In the greater world, and especially the Middle East, Order versus Chaos will continue to play out. Islamic State has broken apart old state borders and threatens more chaos. A very conservative Israeli government and an increasingly desperate Palestinian community shows potential greater conflict also.

China in the far east has been building new places in the ocean that it claims it owns while other countries strongly disagree. And Taiwan is now, with its new President, showing greater signs of independence from China.

And other countries and immigration will continue this breaking down of old borders and boundaries.

This is all meant to be as we leave the Pisces Age for the Age of Aquarius.   We are in a very intense transition between ages,  and the old will continue to break down, though leaders will sometimes stubbornly and violently hold onto the way it used to be.

This is not about the bad guys from a bad age fighting the good guys from a good age,though it may feel like that sometimes.

It is really like nature changing its seasons, except more intensely and dramatically.

Thus if you are a progressive who has much anger against more conservative voices in our world, keep in mind that they represent the part of all of us that is resistant to big change, that holds onto the old and comfortable.

They are not the enemy.

And if you are more conservative and like the world just as it is. do not demonize those who want change as crazy communists or luny dreamers bringing unnnatural chaotic ways into your life.

This week you should be taken out of old ruts and depressed feelings, as this is a stimulating if perhaps confusing New Moon Grand Cross.

Sometimes old ruts can feel like a comfort zone even if not good for us.  Do your best now to let these winds take you out of the ruts.

But it will not be time yet to move fully forward personally or globally. That will wait until July and August.

Till next week,

Leo

The webinar series will begin on August 6 and continue on August 13 and 20.  $125  for the series, payable before the classes.

Waiting in Transition and Astrology Forecast May 8-14

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in a holding pattern now, waiting for the call to move forward.  Mars and Mercury are Retrograde: Mercury till May 22 and Mars till June 29.

As we just passed through a New Moon in Taurus while all this Retrograde business is going on, we need to be in “get moving” mode even if you do not know where to go.

So get things done around the house, get your finances in order, run errands, clean up the old both physically and mentally/emotionally.

Taurus is a grounded, practical sign; but it is also a sign that appreciates the body and Earth.  It sees much of life through its senses, smelling and touching and tasting.  It loves to enjoy its body through comfort also, so spas and hammocks work well for them.

Since it is “Taurus time” for all of us now, it is a good time for each of us to do what Taurus likes and needs to do.

Since we gotta wait before moving more fully into the new era of our lives, it is good now to keep busy; but it is even more important to do inner work.

It is time with Mercury and Mars retrograde, to feel your past, to do some healing, to release and let go what represents the old era of your life.

It will behoove you to do this inner work, as you do not need baggage from the past as you move into the new era of your life.

Of course one cannot totally remove what one has been traumatized or hurt by in one’s past; but now at the Retrogrades and while you are in transition between eras, the winds of the Universe are at your back for inner healing and release.

In the greater world things have also slowed down, with no big events to speak of.

Politically in the USA the movement for electing President is slowing down as it is more obvious who the candidates will be.

But we do not know for sure who will win or what the process to get there will be like.

Our movement forward is on hold now with conversation about who will support Trump, with questions about Clinton’s troubles with her emails, with unknowns about how Sanders and his values will fit into the democratic platform at the convention.

But much more important than the personalities is what each candidate represents for our world, what direction America is moving toward.

Who wins the Presidency will show us loud and clear who we are now and what we value.

And now during the Retrograde, without the distraction of important primaries anymore, we will be able to truly get to know who the candidates are and what they represent.

On the surface Trump is a wealthy brash celebrity.  What else does he represent on a more substantial level?

Clinton is a woman and part of the Clinton political royalty, but what does she represent on a deeper more substantial level?

With Sanders it is more obvious what he represents on a substantial level. He has been loud and clear for many years.

So we are all processing the primary season we have just gone though- 17 republican candidates later- 3 Democratic candidates later.

We can sit back and wait for the party conventions, which occur in July- after Mars goes direct.

And for all of us July is the time of getting our life automobiles started up again for a drive into the new era of our lives.

This does not mean that personal and global events will stop until July.  The personal events over the next couple months, while the retrogrades continue, will help us to further release old mental tapes, old traumas and hurts, old patterns of Self denial and co-dependency.

The events that happen over the next couple of months will also help us to see more clearly our new era of life, to help us to embrace or at least accept our new life energies.

Remember that most important is how we are shifting energetically, because our energetic shifting will determine what and who we will attact into our lives.

It is  good time now to stay very present with our selves and our interactions with others. Watch and feel what is shifting inside.  You are changing at a deep cellular level, changing to be aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius that we are on the cusp of.

Everything has been accelerated and intensified, so we can do the inner work necessary to change our vibrations and lives.

Transition between worlds is not easy, in fact it can be quite painful at times, especially so when faced with old traumas and wounds. But the new birth can feel so good, so inspiring and heartfelt.

In the global world transition during this current Retrograde period, look for signs and symbols to tell you where things are headed now.

Look closely at Syria and Iraq, North Korea, Israel and Palestine, China and Japan.

Look more closely at the economy and stock market for signs and symbols of change.

It is the military/economic complex that hold up our old world.  There will be bigger and bigger cracks in its structure if we are to experience the kind of transformation necessary to bring the birth of the Age of Aquarius.

So even if some of the world events make you feel very insecure, remember that just like in your personal transformation, there is a need to face old energies and emotions, beliefs, and perceptions that need to be released.

The transitions can be painful and scary at times, but necessary in the process of positive Transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

Til next week,

Leo

While Mercury is retrograde, I am considering changing the webinar dates from beginning June 4 to beginning August 6- just considering. Many have shown interest in the webinar series.Please give me your feedback for dates.  It is greatly needed. And for those of you who have given deposit already, your input is most important.  Here is what the webinar will continue to be:

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday June 4 at 1 PM  EDT.  At this point I am leaning toward Saturdays June 18 and June 25 at 1 PM to finish up the series. The second and third dates are not set in stone yet.   Each class will last approximately 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world evetns will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
Audio recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.
