Streams of Change and Astrology Forecast February 7-13

In March a Major Portal will open the floodgates of accelerated transformational changes for both our global and personal lives. 

Two important Eclipses will burst forward then:  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in water sign Pisces, and a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra

Of course those waters flowing through the new Portal will seek to break down any blockages in systems, souls, and bodies; so these healing waters of revolution and evolution can live more fully in us.

So we have about a month before this transformational energy comes rushing through.

This Monday February 8 brings us an important new beginning with a New Moon in Aquarius.

In many ways sensitive people will begin to experience the Eclipse Season after this New Moon in Aquarius.

Floods of soulful energies will pour through our world beginning at the Solar Eclipse in water sign Pisces.  

Water Bearer Aquarius, an air sign, carries streams of change that will open into an ocean of change at the Solar Eclipse in Pisces. Neptune is the “ruler” of Pisces and of course Neptune is the God of the Oceans.

The New Moon this week in Aquarius is at 9:39 AM EST.  It brings the beginning waves of the Eclipse Season.

So an important lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Aquarius this week.  It carries the energies and issues that will burst forth in March, dramatically changing our lives both personally and globally.

Then April will continue the onslaught of transformational energies, as the Uranus/Pluto square (still in effect), will be triggered as Mars changes directions and Mercury goes Retrograde again.

So at this New Moon in Aquarius, allow the new energies to seep in slowly before their Grand opening in March and April.

This New Moon in Aquarius gets us more attuned with our need to be very distinct individualized persons, being authentic and not molding ourselves according to societal or family dictates.

At the same time as we get in touch with that which makes us unique and different,  aligned with the sign Aquarius we ironically seek socially conscious groups that we can somehow fit into.

Often I write about Diversity within Unity being the callling card of the Age of Aquarius.

Aquarius is about being your unique self with unique function in the community, equal in value to all others, all in unity.

This New Moon in Aquarius is a good time to really get in touch with what you believe in idealistically and politically.

The elections for President should be about who answers your calls for the type of world you believe in, not who is the lesser of evils.

If people keep voting for lesser of two evils, we will always have an “evil” world, so to speak.

This time there are candidates outside the usual boxes, as the world is moving into a New Age.  Vote your heart and conscience, not according to some political “wisdom”.

The Iowa caucus showed favorites doing well, and Ted Cruz won the Republican caucus while Sanders and Clinton were pretty much even.

Astrologically speaking, I do not see Cruz winning.   Rubio, Trump, Bush, and Sanders look the best astrologically to me.

Though my astrological formula has done well in the past, keep in mind that we all vote and nothing is written in stone.

But for Cruz or someone else who does not fit into, by formula,  what is coming into our country and world does not make sense to me.

The New Moon in Aquarius brings with it on February 8- a Chinese New Year of the Monkey.  The monkey is considered a mentally agile symbol and great gains technologically make sense as a result this, as well as new ideas and inventions this coming year.

This year already has shown us that the recent transformational energies are now taking hold and becoming more real.

Yes the Presidential campaigns are showing us how the electorate wants change away from same-old doing business as usual.

The USA has been having its very central core broken down over the last couple of years as Uranus and Pluto have been making aspect to its Sun in Cancer.

The presidential elections show how the USA no longer knows who it is as its identity has been changing.  President Barack Hussein Obama has brought a whole new kind of president, outside the usual box of white anglo saxon protestant male.

And our detente with Cuba and Iran has changed our relationship to the world.  And our not blindly following Israel’s needs has also changed our relationship to them and the Muslim world.

The Middle East is so important to the world’s transformation into a New Age.

The Middle East is where most of our major religions and civilizations were born. It is where the transition between ages is brewing, where a New World will erupt from.

Will we in the USA continue the path President Obama represents and elect someone who continues to be on that track?

Or will we elect someone who sees America as better than the rest, and hates Muslims or others who they feel threaten the American way of life.

Will we bring in a president who will represent Diversity in Unity, equality for all;  or will we need to go back two dangerous steps before we go three steps forward later?

The presidential choices are more clear now than since the ’60s and ’70s.  Each of us must now reach for our “better angels” inside us.  Revenge, fear and hatred will take us into a dark tunnel of pain.  Love combined with Truth will take us to the best places, places aligned with the best of the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Aquarius Consciousness and Astrology Forecast February 15-21

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

For the early part of this coming week, as we move through the darkening last quarter of the Moon’s cycle, the energies are slow and yin-ward, perhaps rather dreary for some.   These are the “dog days” of winter, seemingly endless days of darkness and cold.

But on Wednesday this coming week there is a shift, one that will bring more active energies, more of a sense we are moving forward, for better or worse.

On Wednesday February 18 there is a New Moon in Aquarius, beginning the lunar cycle that will lead us to the day of the Spring Equinox.

Also on the 18th the Sun moves into Pisces, which is the last sign the Sun moves through before it enters Aries at the Spring Equinox.

On the 19th Mercury gets back up to its normal Direct speed, signifying an end to Mercury Retrograde’s influence on our mind and lives.

And also on the 19th the Chinese year of the Sheep or Goat begins, a New Year for many east Asian inhabitants.

And also on the 19th Mars moves into Aries, the sign Mars loves to be in, where its active, forceful, initiating energies have a home.

So expect the coming week to bring stirrings of awakening and movement forward.

The New Moon in head strong Aquarius, and Mercury getting back up to Direct speed promise a clearer mind and a better sense of mental sanity.  It is a good time for new ideas also and a time when thinking inventively will be rewarded.  The Aquarius New Moon is also a time for greater social consciousness, group connections and global awareness.

Mars in Aries will be joined through conjunction with Venus in Aries late in the week, giving more impetus to fresh starts, fresh thinking, and a stronger sense of the great change coming our way soon.

Some people may already begin to feel the winds of Spring Eclipse Season 2015 blowing in this week or soon after.

Events in the news may also show us “previews” of what will blow up into bigger issues and events later.

In your personal life you may also begin to see the beginning seeds planted for what will more fully bloom in your life during the upcoming Spring Eclipse Season 2015.

But keep in mind, even as you get more energy for moving forward this week, that we have time before the intensity of transformational change truly erupts into our lives.

This waiting time is signified by the Sun moving into Pisces on the 18th.    That Sun in Pisces, which lasts until March 20 at the Spring Equinox, brings us through a month of surrender to what is deeper than our waking mind can usually fathom.

Pisces, ruled by the God of the ocean Neptune, is best experienced while in the flow of life, allowing the tides and currents to take us where our consciousness needs to go.

We may need to experience some ghosts of the past so we can reintegrate that which we have left behind, and/or so we can better heal from wounds or traumas from our past during Sun in Pisces.

Our consciousness is getting prepared for the big changes coming soon.

And as Mars and Venus go into Aries this coming week, they are getting us closer to that change.

During the first half of March the last exact pass of Uranus square Pluto will be in the spotlight.  Venus and Mars will trigger that square of these huge transformational planets in the first and second week of March, and then on March 16 Uranus and Pluto make that  last exact square to one another.

And of course all that is followed by two very strong Total Eclipses relatively soon after.

It is most important now, if you are inclined to tune into world events, to watch what is stirring in the world.

Of grave importance is the potential nuclear deal with Iran. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is speaking in front of the USA Congress on March 3.  He did not appropriately consult with President Obama first and his message is very likely to be against making a deal with Iran.

President Obama, in trying to make this deal, in improving relations with Cuba, and in his comments of how the Christian Crusades rivaled in butchery with the ISIS atrocities, is moving in alignment with the New Age in Aquarius.

Equality and Diversity within Unity are in alignment with the Age of Aquarius and Obama’s recent activities.

President Obama, so connected with the soul of Abraham Lincoln, is beginning to listen to his “better angels” as his time as President is coming to an end.

The “power structure” of our world is changing now with the growth of China, Arab/Muslim culture, Brazil, and India, etc.  Russia is having serious problems with the western world, and Europe with Greece’s recent election of a socialist leaning Prime Minister is facing severe challenges to its unity and economy.

And of course the USA is also going to be severely challenged with its economy also this year.

As we look out at our world, one that does not have in its mainstream a sense of holism, unity, interconnectedness, true spirituality, valuing of truth telling, honoring of the Earth and all its creatures as sacred,  we can see a need for immense transformation into a new paradigm for thinking, relating and living.

We are all connected as one family of human and creature on Earth, and only with that deeper awareness can we hope to somewhat gracefully enter this Age of Aquarius.

So there is importance in finding common ground with Iran in this meeting of differing cultures.  If we do not, we can expect world conflicts that will bring much misery to so many on the Earth.

In your own consciousness and life there is probably nothing more important than leaving a paradigm of superiority/inferiority, of some being innately better than others.

We may like our way better for us, but we must accept that not everyone is made the same way with the same cultural orientations or persuasions.

The whole world does not have to be governed by a democratic/capitalistic model for living.

Nor does the whole world need to be Christian or Muslim or Republican or Democrat or heterosexual or homosexual.   And none is by nature better than the other.  It is all in the “eye of the beholder”.

Yes we need to have a world of unity and all people have in common a need of safety, food and water, love, etc.

But we do not all have to wear the same “uniform'”.  There are “many roads to Rome”, many faces of human or of the “god-force”.

Diversity within Unity is a big part of the new paradigm for living on Earth in an Age of Aquarius.

And for this week you can get your life motor running,  revive your mental adeptness, and begin preparing your consciousness for great change ahead.

Till next week,

Leo

Let’s Get it Started Again and Astrology Forecast January 26-February 1

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 25, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

By the end of this week tides of our consciousness and lives will be shifting.    This is not a huge shift, but a discernible one, an appetizer before a feast of change this Spring 2014.

For the first few days this week we are in the waning darkening Moon days of the lunar cycle.   Energies are moving yin-ward, slowing down the pace of action.

Then on Thursday January 30 at 4:39 PM EST there is a New Moon in Aquarius making close aspect to its “ruling” planet Uranus.   People and events that may seem out of the ordinary may be coming closer.  You may begin to feel that you do not want to do what you should, what you feel you normally do.

Aquarius takes us outside of confining boxes and seeks to liberate our minds from conventional rules and limitations.   We seek to express our individuality, our differences, our uniqueness.

At the same time we look for our “birds of a feather” connections, our family members beyond blood bonds.    We move also beyond our ego’s need to be better or worse than others, and instead seek equality, social consciousness, and a greater sense of community.

We question authority figures and the rules and regulations of conventional society that limit our ability to be free and squash our more idealistic principles.

We let you know last week that the economy would now begin to reverse itself and that the agreements in the Middle East would begin to unravel.   The stock market suffered big losses at the end of last week, and the Syrian and Iranian agreements began to show signs of trouble.

Reversals will continue and what has been expected will not show up.  Be prepared for the first signs of the old world rules and controls to be challenged.

In addition to the New Moon in Aquarius on January 30, we will have an exact Jupiter/Pluto opposition on January 31.  This is a most potent and potentially explosive planetary event.  Its energy and the possible events associated with it may be experienced days before the 31st.  World events may be powerful and unexpected.

This Jupiter/Pluto opposition is part of the Cardinal T-Square that is closer in aspect this week. Uranus in Aries completes this T-Square, and adds the element of surprise.

Also on Friday January 31 Venus in Capricorn will be changing back to Direct after almost six weeks of being Retrograde.  This Venus going back Direct is also part of the Cardinal T-Square, adding a more complicated and transformational tone to our relationships.

Whatever has been shaking up and changing in your relationship life, which can be important relationships of any kind, will be seeking some resolution and clarity now.    Venus is in Capricorn and Capricorn wants things to be defined and set.   Though Venus going Direct seeks some resolution, the fact that Venus will be in “slo-mo’ for awhile and will still be in the T-Square for several days suggests that full and complete resolution will still take more time.

Many of you have been finding that memories of the past in relationships have been in the spotlight these last several weeks.  Memories have been surfacing through dreams or daydreams or actual in person reunions with people from the past. People we have loved may have left out lives and others have brought us back to old relationship patterns we may have thought we moved beyond.

Venus also rules our sense of well being, security and money issues.  So these last several weeks may have brought back financial concerns and concerns about security and stability.

Therefore as Venus goes back Direct this week, we may not only have found some resolution to relationship issues, but also some attention to resources, money, and security.

There is a sense of new beginnings this week, with the New Moon in Aquarius and Venus Direct. And these new beginning may have an intensity and passion as Jupiter opposes Pluto.

These events come toward the end of this week, and another event that suggests new beginnings is right after the New Moon in Aquarius.  That event is Chinese New Year, this year being the year of the Horse, the Wooden Horse. This suggest the year will be about adventures, especially adventures brought from interaction with nature.

And next Sunday February 2 is Imbolc or Candlemas or Groundhog Day.  This is approximately half way between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.  It brings rising hope for Springtime.  This is also for many traditionally a time of spiritual initiation, and a sighting of light at the end of the tunnel of darker soul times.

So these coming days bring with them a sense of renewed hope and new beginnings, especially for those who have recently felt trapped in their lives or in darker inner feelings.

You can now begin to feel there is a way out, but you may need to see beyond black and white duality thinking.  There are always solutions, but now these solutions are possible by thinking outside the boxes in your mind.  Many of those boxes have been programmed by society or family patterns.  Awaken your free mind and go straight to the Universe’s web of information and knowledge.

This knowing may come in the form of synchronicity or signs and symbols, or intuitive thought, or even from searching the internet.    You are only trapped by the prisons in your mind and heart.   The programming you have had pounded into you and the traumas that have previously closed your heart can be moved through so you can trust again.

It is that trust that will help you to see with all new eyes and be open to new ways of being.    That trust is not of other people, but of your self and the Universe.  That trust in your self and the Universe will then translate into trusting your ability to draw to your self those who are best for you and your soul’s journey.

See you next week,

Leo

The Perfect Storm and Astrology Forecast for January 15-21

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Winter has finally hit, with a snow storm a couple days ago and a deep freeze on the way.  We are in the deep of Winter.

The Moon is waning now and moving down into its last Quarter phase, getting us prepared for a New Moon in Aquarius on January 23.

That will be a turning point day as Mars also goes Retrograde that day and the Chinese New Year of the Dragon begins.

But this week is low energy, winding down, making completions, cleaning up, preparing.    After the 23rd you can rev up your life engines again.

In the greater world a perfect storm is in the early stages of formation.  This perfect storm is the explosion that will shake up the Old World paradigm and reality.

Those of us on a spiritual soul journey into a new paradigm, a New Earth, an Aquarian Age, have been getting rewired into a new consciousness aligned with this World.

We have been facing spiritual crises that are meant to help us release the programming of the society of that Old World paradigm.   We have faced deep fears, let go of old beliefs and attitudes, endured physical health challenges, as we are being prepared for the storm ahead.

Each of us must be mentally and spiritually ready for the challenges ahead. The Old World is about to bring us events that will tend to evoke great fear.

The deep personal challenges we have each faced let us know that transformation into Unity consciousness is not an easy process. There are shadows and demons of separation consciousness to be faced and released on the path into Aquarian Age consciousness.

Many people are going to freak out because of the storms that are coming. The messages from the old world will be of fear, and hatred of those who are different.   They will tend to motivate you into a survival of the fittest mentality.   They will stoke you into nationalism and patriotism that will separate you from your fellow Earth citizen.   Enemies will be created by media and government, lies will be told to get you to choose sides.

But you have been cleansing, healing, and transforming your consciousness and life over the years. You know we are all One, that we have been getting prepared to create a New Earth, an Aquarian Age.

There is a war coming that is part of this perfect storm.  The Powers of the Old World are getting ready for a showdown with Iran.  War preparations are already beginning.  A False Flag incident is possible soon, one that is staged to look like a Pearl Harbor. Or perhaps more simply Israel will attack Iran.

This showdown with Iran has the potential to begin the dominoes falling into a war that will encompass much of the world.

The European economic crisis, which will become an American economic crisis, will form at a similar time period to the war cries with Iran, to help form this perfect storm.

Some people believe we can stop this all from happening with our prayers and positive visualizations. Perhaps Divine Intervention can be evoked to help us move into an Aquarian Age in a more graceful manner.

But it is also quite possible, as many prophecies have foretold, that these events are meant to be in order to bring about the transformation into a New World and New Earth.

But keep in mind that we are all on this Earth at just the right time. We are meant to be here now. We have incarnated at this time to be of assistance to our world in crisis.   The inner work and healing we have gone through over the years is in preparation for this crisis.

Many of you reading this will be leading the way into new consciousness and helping to create this New World.

The timing of this is difficult to ascertain.  The eclipse season this Spring 2012 is a likely time for the storm, but I believe the early dark winds of this storm will blow in sooner than that.  Watch for signs of the brewing storm near the coming New Moon in Aquarius as Mars goes Retrograde on January 23.  During the Mars Retrograde period there will likely be second thoughts on engaging in war, even as preparations are being made. Keep in mind that Mars is the archetypal god of war, and while it is retrograde we reflect on Mars issues.

Mars will go back direct on April 14.  Mercury will also be retrograde from March 12- April 4, so much contemplation and reflection will be in order then. Then sometime afterwards it is time to act and move forward.  Perhaps minds will be changed.

In May and June there are two powerful Eclipses. In June is the first pass of the revolutionary and evolutionary Uranus square Pluto.  This is the time period most likely when the Perfect Storm occurs, if it indeed will happen. The timing is not cut in stone.   Events will happen surrounding the May/June planetary intensities, but exact dates are almost impossible to ascertain.

There is nothing to worry and fret about, as all will unfold just as it meant to unfold.  You have been preparing, whether you are conscious of that fact or not. The shifts you have been experiencing are part of the process to put you just where you need to be.

We all know that life is not just about raising families, buying a home, making money, and consuming and buying. Life is a meaningful and sacred soul journey.  We are here on Earth as spiritual beings, reincarnating in order to return to our soul home of Unity consciousness.

No, all humans will not be entering Aquarian Age consciousness during this time of intense transition, but enough will to be able to create our new world.

This week, January 15-21, there is a waning last quarter Moon beginning early Monday morning. Then on Thursday there is a serious feeling in the air as the Sun squares Saturn. And on Friday the Sun moves into Aquarius, three days before the Moon joins the Sun in Aquarius to form a New Moon in Aquarius on January 23.

Aquarius time of year is a time for concentration on social networking, group activity, and social consciousness. It is also a time to break out of limiting boxes of consciousness, and to see things in inventive and creative ways. Aquarius tends toward distinct individuality, even if others may see it as weird and strange.  Aquarius is about rebellion against how one is supposed to be, and it is anti ego.  Aquarius hates tyranny and appreciates equality and freedom.  Aquarius walks the thin line between genius and crazy and loves to travel the network of mind and intellect.

See you next week,

Leo

The Soul of Winter and Astrology Forecast for January 8-14

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on January 7, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are firmly in winter now, though you would hardly know it up here in the northern regions of the USA.    It has been mostly mid autumn weather, with only a couple of snow dustings so far, no extreme cold or big snows.

It has felt like winter, however, inside the soul.   It has been a slow process of climbing out from the dark realms of the last eclipse season.  That eclipse season kind of felt like a rewiring of the body and spirit, perhaps getting ready for the immense changes of 2012.

We are each transforming our consciousness and lives to be alignment with the waves of evolutionary movement into an Aquarian Age.  Darker forces inside ourselves or in the world and Universe try to bring us backwards into fear and meaninglessness.

So it is important to keep the focus on the frequency of reality that shows us we are in the embrace of a a loving Universe, one that supports our meaningful and sacred soul journey.   This is an important time in the ourstory of humanity.

We are in transition between ages, with an old age trying to pull us back into a paradigm that believes in separation and teaches us that the dots of life and the Universe do not connect with one another.

This new paradigm shows us unmistakedly that there is Unity, not a unity of all in the same uniform; but a Diversity in Unity.

We each have been created in a distinct individualized unique manner.   The Unity of an Aquarian Age is not one that is about us all being the same.  It is about authentic individualized entities respecting their own and others’ differences, yet knowing we are all connected in larger community. This is Aquarius.

So do not be upset with your self when you get temporarily taken back to old fears, to old hurts and wounds that make you feel life, people, God, and the Universe cannot be trusted.    It is part of the growth process evolutionarily.

We sometimes need to return to those dark places inside so we can be more humbled, embrace our vulnerable human self, and reconnect with our compassion for those who suffer and feel alone and alienated.

2012 will be a roller coaster ride of transformation, helping us to open our hearts and minds to the possibilities.    It will a time when reality shifts in big ways, and when we see with new eyes.  It is important this year to keep an open mind about what is real and what is not.  We have been programmed by society and family to see reality in certain ways.   At one time society believed the world was flat, and those who believed differently were not accepted.

The electronic/computer age was science fiction not too long ago.   And perhaps before too long we will have new information about the origins of humanity, about our connections to star systems and alien life.

True transformation is breaking out of what you have programmed to believe, that which holds you back from Truth.  It is necessary to find your free mind, heart and soul in order to break the chains of the past that hold you.

As you find that liberation, you find your Authentic Self and your Soul Path, and you know your journey is sacred and meaningful. You are meant to be a part of the evolutionary wave into an Aquarian Age.   Your example will light the way for others to follow.

So when the doubts bring you into darker places in your heart, it is important to nurture your body and soul.  You nurture your body and soul by feeding it what is healthy.  You talk to people who are also on a soul’s journey, not to people who do not believe.  You read books or listen to cds that keep you on the path. You receive counseling or healings from people who know the dots of the Universe are connected in meaningful ways. You stay away, as much as possible from people, even and especially sometimes family, who remind and rewind you to the person you used to be.   They will only know you in the old role.

You will not be able to convince them of a reality they do not believe exists.  Of course you still love them, but your conversations and frequency of interaction may need to change.

This Week there is a Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer.    It is overnight Sunday into Monday, at 2:31 AM January 9th here on the east coast USA.

The Sun is in Capricorn and represents our orientation to the outer world, our wordly duties, our professional lives, our organization and discipline, our accomplishments and what we have learned on our worldly journey.

The Moon in Cancer represents our personal life, our inner orientation and values, our feelings and soul.  It is about nurturance and protection and safety from the world.

So now at this Full Moon, it is time to find right relationship between your innner and outer realities, between your personal and professional life.   Have you been too focussed on doing what you need to do and get done and ignoring your inner world and personal feelings? Or have you been overprotective and procrastinating about what you need to accomplish or face up to?

Are you too concerned with family and children and ignoring your worldly ambitions, or have you been working too much and ignoring your family and children?

It is time to do your best to find the balance.

The next big shift will be after January 23, as on that day there is New Moon in Aquarius and the Chinese New Year of the Dragon. Also that day Mars, our planet of action, will, and desire goes Retrograde. It will get us to reflect on those issues in our life, and ponder if we are on the right track.

We will discuss that more in the next couple of weeks.

See you next week,

Leo
