Year 2020 and Astrology Forecast December 29-January 4.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 29, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We enter a New Year 2020 this week, and it will be one alive and intense year ahead (Podcast Forecast coming in early January).

This week of transition between years 2019 and 2020 begins shortly after the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn from December 25/26.

That eclipsed new moon began a lunar cycle that includes a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer on January 10, the same day liberating Uranus changes directions from Retrograde to Direct.

Then 2 days later on the 12th, the important and powerful Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn.

This week now, we should be able to experience more of the reality and meaning of this Eclipse Season.

The holidays have to some extent distracted us from the energies and reality of this Eclipse Season.

If paying attention , however, we experience the partisan battle between Democrats and Republicans that will likely take Trump off the hook of being found guilty by the Republican run Senate. The Senate tries Trump and then votes for his guilty or innocent verdict. No matter what he gains infamy in American history.

This country has descended into a government that has lost the pulse of the American people, and in so doing gives more and more power to corporations and special interests that pay handsomely to the Senators and Congressional representatives.

The idealistic values set down in the American Constitution and Bill of Rights are being more and more drowned under by overly materialistic values and distorted needs for ultimate security above all else.

The lofty American values of equality for all, freedom of speech, and care for those who struggle have been brought down many notches and into the underworld’s value system.

This year 2020 presents a major turning point in regards to those values. The current administration pushes the envelope toward more power for the executive branch of government, meaning toward King Donald.

Yet 2020 gives the opportunity, through impeachment and elections, to reject those values and reject giving more power to the “kings and queens”.

1776 was to be the beginning of the end of rule by royalty or dictator, and instead give more power to the people.

So now we have the opportunity, through transformation of consciousness, to evolve into the people envisioned by the early leaders of the country.

The month of January 2020, as the first month of the year, sets the stage and creates the foundation for this important year ahead.

The Saturn/Pluto conjunction, which happens to be a close companion to the Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, is set to begin the process of destruction of soul dead elements of our world and its institutions.

Stock Market correction is likely this season, as the chart for the beginning of the Stock Market in America is being harshly triggered by the Saturn/Pluto conjunction and Lunar Eclipse this month. That chart is from May 17, 1792 in New York.

The Trump administration will do everything in its power to keep the market and economy looking prosperous, as a failure of the economy means automatic failure of the administration’s attempts to survive.

The trade war with China and breakdown of communication with North Korea will also come up to a major turning point this coming month.  North Korea is on the verge of creating more trouble. The state of Israel and showdown with Iran will likely also draw much attention this coming month.

In our personal lives this Eclipse Season, we can expect events that bring powerful messages of needs to release anything from the last chapter of our lives that keep screaming to be kept alive.

Saturn/Pluto can be ruthless, and so letting go is essential.  The New Chapter may have already showed you its promise, but no matter what- make sure to let go of what used to be. Your anger and/or guilt keep the old alive, even if you believe you let it all go.

This week on New Year’s Eve day of the 31st, the Moon is in Pisces much of the day.

However at 11 PM EST and 8 PM PST, the Moon goes into Aries. In Europe the New Year comes in with the Moon in Pisces.  In Africa and Asia, the Moon will be in Pisces at the yearly turning point.

But in America there will be a good connection with what is happening overall: The Pisces Moon is grieving and letting go; the Aries Moon is pushing forward and embracing the new.

On January 2nd,  Mercury in Capricorn makes exact conjunction with Jupiter in Capricorn, affording us the opportunity to have real and practical ideas for manifesting our dreams and making our lives work better.

On January 3, Mars leaves deeply serious and sometimes brooding Scorpio for more glory seeking Sagittarius.  What has been a “kept secret” Scorpio desire or emotion is released into the free spirit of Sagittarius.

Mars stays in Sagittarius until February 16. Use the Mars fiery placement now to take the leap of faith, to “take the ride” of your destiny, to go on the adventure, to know all is happening for a reason.

All the Capricorn energies now can help make some people feel trapped or confined or depressed.

But if you do allow yourself to open up and freely follow spirit now, you can use the Capricorn influence to stay grounded, to make real, to manifest in form.  This combo is great for recognizing the natural relationship that can be found between spirit and form.

That is our human experience. Free spirits and souls making home in a body in order to fulfill a function or purpose in our Earthly Human Community in this lifetime.

Issues and energies intensify this week, as we get closer to the important planetary configurations later this month.

Till next week,

Leo

Full Moon Begins Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast December 8-14

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 7, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The waxing moon reaches climax this week as it becomes a Full Moon in Gemini at 12:12 AM on December 12.

And unofficially, Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 is energizing and alive.

That Eclipse Season will be important as a major turning point for our world and personal lives.

There is no more straddling the fence of indecision; no more trying to be in two different worlds at the same time. It is time to choose or at least know one has to choose.

This Eclipse Season will contain many highlights: 2 eclipses; Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; and Uranus shifting to Direct- out of Retrograde motion.

In the outer world we see a stock market in a big bubble ready to burst this winter; North Korea and China more intent on challenging the USA; Israel and Iran doing serious macho strutting with one another; and a USA impeachment process that is not headed for a peaceful solution.

In January, Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn at 22+ degrees of Capricorn will be closely opposing Trump’s natal Venus/Saturn conjunction in Cancer. His sense of stability and control will be seriously threatened. 

His natal Vertex, often a sign of “fated happenings” is at 22+ degrees of Capricorn, exactly conjunct the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12. This is a very difficult aspect for him.

This Saturn/Pluto conjunction is made even more potent as it is closely held inside the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon of Capricorn/Cancer at 20+ degrees of Capricorn on January 10.

Saturn and Pluto together are pretty serious. One (Saturn) is planet of time and gravity, while the other (Pluto) is the Guardian of the Underworld.  Together they are ruthless in destroying anything that is hanging around past its natural time of life.

This is a perfect time to eliminate the old ego stories that keep you stuck.  In some cases, it will be obvious that the old patterns need to go.  Remember that doing the same thing over and over again, looking for changes that will never come, is insanity.

And now Saturn/Pluto can help you to stop looking in the same places anymore for answers.  When you are committed to stop, new doors and windows will open, bringing in the fresh air of a new season for our lives.

I know it can feel daunting to enter new lands of possibility, and that the demon we know can be more appealing and less scary than strange situations we have never known.

But once in these new vistas of life, we let go into renewal and greater vitality.

And this week, as we begin to feel the breezes of the Eclipse Season that has its first eclipse on December 25/26, we are making ourselves be present and aware.

That consciousness will allow us to see and feel all the signs and symbols we need now, to keep us aligned and on track.

This current week begins in a bit of a misty fog in consciousness, as both the Sun and Venus make contact with Neptune on Sunday the 8th.

Wrestling with details and analytic mental processes is off the mark and will only bring confusion.  Best to surrender agenda with Neptune, just let go and surrender.

Mercury moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Monday the 9th, raising our mental vibration, being more open to inspiration and high-mindedness. It stays in Sagittarius until December 28.

Around the 9th, it is time to be in the aura of the approaching Full Moon in Gemini.  Before that exact full moon on the 12th, Venus makes exact conjunction with Saturn on the 11th.

Saturn conjunct Venus puts limits on the open heart’s natural give and take, and instead brings us more into “quid pro quo” negotiations to get you what you each want from each other.

The exact actual Full Moon in Gemini is on Thursday December 12 at 12:12 AM EST. (See all  the 12’s ?): 12/12 at 12:12 AM.   Twelve is a sacred number showing itself in the number of signs and houses of the zodiac and also the number of apostles of Jesus Christ.  It is considered more a sacred “male” number, while 13 is considered more a sacred female number.

For this new moon, we have the Sun in Sagittarius and the Moon directly opposed in Gemini at 19+ degrees.

This is usually a very animated time period, as people get more into communication. Conversations can be quite lively. Gemini provides the mental information and possibilities, while Sagittarius provides the conclusions, opinions and meaning.  Gemini is mostly left brain mental processing calculating and thinking, while Sagittarius is mostly intuitive “whole-making”.

With this Full Moon in Gemini, Neptune in Pisces is involved as it squares both the Sun and Moon.

Neptune may bring more confusion to the conversations at times, and at other times it will bring a deeper, more insightful and psychic approach to any issues.

Let the conversation take you and all will be fine.  Sometimes it is not the bottom line answers that matter the most. It is the connections between people that is most important.

Chiron goes Direct in Aries later on the 12th, building a bridge between your higher Self and your ego.

Then on Friday the 13th (one of my most favorite days), Mars in Scorpio trines Neptune while Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn.

Mars in Scorpio trine Neptune keeps our actions connected to our soul, so that our inner values keep our desires in bounds.

Venus conjunct Pluto in Capricorn brings more insight and deeper connection to our relationships.  Superficial has little chance of getting our attention now, instead we become more aware of our needs for depth and closeness with others.

My partner Deborah and I leave our home for the last 16 years, as we travel to our new home in Sedona on December 16.

Some of the most soulful, thoughtful, kind and conscientious people live in Maine and New England.  They will always remain deeply in my heart.

Till next week,

Leo

Love or Fear? and Astrology Forecast November 24-30.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 23, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

For the first part of this week, we move through a dark Moon phase.

Then on Tuesday November 26 there is a New Moon is Sagittarius at 10:06 AM EST. After that the Moon  will grow in light each night until the next Full Moon.

The true energetic feeling of a new moon usually waits until we can see the first sliver of light, which in this case will likely be the night of November 26.

Sagittarius energy is generally uplifting, inspiring, expansive, and joy filled.  It comes at the time of year in the Northern Hemisphere of Planet Earth when darkness is growing every day- as we move toward the Winter Solstice, the darkest moment of the year.

And the holidays at this time of year mirror the fire of positive feelings of celebration from Sagittarius.

Yet at the same time, mirroring the dark day movement toward Winter Solstice, many people get very depressed during the holiday season.

This year I have noticed people to be more negative and angry than previous holiday times.  The state of the world is having a large effect on people.

We are moving closer and closer now to Winter Eclipse Season 2019/20.  I believe the Full Moon in Gemini on December 11/12 2019 will bring in the first winds of change of that Eclipse Season.

And with the first eclipse being in Capricorn on December 25, the second in Cancer on January 10, and then followed by the important Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn  on January 12; we experience energies moving “down and in”, not “up and out.”  Energy is growing in Yin, not Yang for the Eclipse Season.

This week begins on Sunday with a rather radical and rebellious Mars in Scorpio opposite Uranus in Taurus.  Keep an eye out for people or yourself feeling contrary and oppositional now.  There is much movement now to break out, to not take it anymore.

Israel and Iran natal planetary positions make close aspects with this Mars/Uranus opposition and with upcoming planetary movements in December and January 2020. 

Syria and the USA also fit in, as does the chart for the birth of the USA Stock Market on May 17 1792.  China also has natal planets connecting with coming transits of the planets.

There are shake-ups coming to all these places and the economy now, and it is rather easy to see it all unfolding.  The next few months are turning point or cross-roads time periods, and the direction these countries and economy are moving toward will be much more apparent by Spring 2020.

Your life too!  What are you needing to change?  Are you holding on tightly for security and afraid of change?  Maybe it is not time yet, or maybe you are missing your chance.

For many, change usually comes when the old is breaking down or about to end and it is obviously time to move. Or someone or something is obviously calling us to move forward in our lives.

But sometimes it is time to make changes even when things are going OK, not falling apart.  You just know you have “stayed at the dance too long”, and it is time to go.

On Sunday besides the breaking out of Mars opposite Uranus, Venus makes conjunction with Jupiter in Sagittarius.

This gives a feeling of hope and inspiration, or wanting to try again with more faith this time.

Venus moves out of free spirit Sagittarius and into more controlled and stable Capricorn on Monday the 25th. It will stay in Capricorn until December 21, the day of Winter Solstice.

This Venus in Capricorn brings needs to settle down and make things work on a practical level.  We are still in the dark phase of the Moon when Venus first goes into Capricorn.

Then on Tuesday at 10:06 AM EST, the box is opened to let the newly lit fires of a New Moon in Sagittarius expand freely.

If you have been patiently waiting before jumping in, now the light is green.

But on the contrary Neptune has slowed down to be stationary now.  And on Wednesday November 27, Neptune goes back Direct.

Neptune wants nothing short of letting go and surrendering to that which is bigger than you and which can “hold you”.

Add Neptune’s ocean flow to fiery New Moon in Sagittarius, and you have the makings of spiritual emergence.  But letting go is essential for you to ride the waves now of that emergence, to take the adventure.

You may feel you  need to stuff your self on Thanksgiving Day Thursday the 28th; but hopefully you will avoid the orgy of consumerism on Black Friday the 29th.

But then after that it might be time to at least contemplate your escape from the doldrums of life.  Maybe you just need an escape this winter.

Yet looking at the powerful and important planetary movements early this winter, you may need more.

Our collective lives are on the verge of enormous transformational change.

You know all is not the same anymore.  And there is no going back to “normal”.

But you can ride the waves into your dharma and destiny, into a renewed sense of purpose and function in this new world that has not even grown its wings yet.

But it will, but not before a big purge of psychological fecal matter, ego stories that have been heavy baggage to carry around for so long.

December and January will pull the plug on the old patterns, stories, and limitations that weigh us down.

Perhaps Trump is symbolic of the weight of that baggage, and he is beginning to crumble.

He will be gone one way or another. The Saturn/Pluto conjunction is opposite his natal  Saturn in Cancer, just about one degree from an exact opposition.

And his natal Vertex, an often good measure of a fate, is almost exactly conjunct the Saturn/Pluto conjunction at 22+ degrees of Capricorn in January.

His grip on his personal sense of security and reality is slipping fast now. Let us just hope he does not do anything too insane as he senses the sink hole below him.

Who do you respect more? Truth and Love? Or Distortion and Fear? It is Time to Decide

Till next week,

Leo

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.

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
