This is Easter holiday weekend for most Christians around the world and Passover for the Jewish people in the world. And now with Covid as the major focus for most people all over the world, Easter and Passover promise to be different than usual.

Mainly that is true because families may not be able to be together, as is usual for Easter, as stay at home “orders” will be respected by many if not most people in the world..

Hypothetically, if the “powers that be” in our world wanted to have a vulnerable frightened world citizenship to dominate and control,  circumstances now would be quite favorable for them.

For the most part, people are “sitting ducks” now.  But of course believing that would be paranoid, wouldn’t it?

On the other hand, this virus is providing many gifts to our human family here on Earth.

We are being “forced” to stay home and not be so driven to accomplishing and getting things done as usual.  This time at home is helping some to develop new habits of meditating and exercising, etc.

And if you live with someone who also needs to stay home, you have a much better opportunity now for closer intimacy.

And of course being at home so often can give a person time to gain greater perspective and deeper insight into one’s life.

A good portion of Americans, I believe, have been programmed by culture and family to have love conditional on meeting certain standards.  Getting things done, making big money, accomplishments, etc are criteria for receiving love.

Just Being your self, with no accomplishments or successes, is not conducive to being loved for so many people.

Just Being your self and receiving Love is only meant for infants and very young children it seems.

Look at Trump and all his bragging and strutting and lying .  He does all that because he feels he needs to be the best, really special in order to be loved and respected.  Probably a Father wound is the culprit.

That is how narcissists are created.  Underneath all the bravado is a little boy who suspects he is a loser in his Father’s eyes. And early on he develops drastic compensation behaviors in order to get that love he desperately wanted and did not get.

Even becoming the leader of the most powerful country in the world cannot fill the hole of being unloved that sits inside him.

Having compassion for him is good.  But this does not mean one should feel sorry for him.   Every “villain” is the world, Hitler or Manson, etc. has a sad story from childhood.

Every man who beats a woman has had a childhood that can explain how he became such a monster.

But so many people have had the same kind of experiences or worse, and yet they become kind people, and often the best healers in our community of humans.

I am not comparing Trump to those “villains” in the human historical script, but nevertheless the path to being a certain kind of person has similarities.

Understanding someone helps us to not demonize, helps us to finding solutions to some of humanity’s old toxic dysfunctional patterns of behavior, But it does not condone or take away a person’s responsibility to being held accountable.

Christ’s lessons for having compassion for those who are the least lovable should not be lost on us.

By taking “Demon” off another’s face, we are transforming out of the “black or white” consciousness that gives only two options: hating the horrible person or feeling sorry for the victimized person.

Transformation in this case brings us deeper insight and greater understanding. That will assist us in using clear sight, mind and heart in order to transform our consciousness aligned with a new world and Age.

This week, which is after last week’s Full Moon in Libra, brings us through a darkening lunar phase.

In fact, the 4th quarter of the Moon’s cycle begins on Tuesday the 14th, with the Moon in Capricorn square the Sun in Aries.

Aries wants to push forward fast, while Capricorn is more cautious. A current dilemma needing to be solved now fits that lunar message.

The decision to be made soon- is to either go beyond the stay at home rules in order to open up the economy; or on the contrary to wait longer in order to avoid potentially even worse conditions for the virus.

That decision is so important now.

There will be much powerful energy attached to that 4th quarter Moon, as the Sun will make exact square to the recent Jupiter conjunct Pluto aspect from last week. That happens on April 14/15. Both Jupiter and Pluto will be triggered by that Sun in Aries.

Jupiter takes the high road of positive expectations, while Pluto takes the low road of being in touch with the pain and suffering that can result from the lack of caution.

Trump calls it the most important decision of his life and I can see why, on so many levels.

This week, we will be staying in the downward trek of the 4th quarter Moon awaiting the new beginnings of a new moon.

That new moon is next week on April 22, the New Moon in Taurus.

Remember that Aries gets the ball rolling, starts the process, just as the Aries beginning of Spring shows us buds coming through to begin forming growth of leaves on the branches.

Then in May Taurus Time,  Spring time truly manifests as full blooming.

Moving forward with new ideas happens in Aries. Then the “fixed earth” Taurus makes manifest, and then stubbornly will not budge from what has been made manifest.

In your life, what is ready to be made manifest? What needs your commitment for it to be made successful?

Be ready for a powerful shift this week.   Something big seems to be waiting to happen soon.

Till next week

Leo

Sacred Turning Point and Astrology Forecast December 25- December 31.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 24, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we move through a sacred Judeo/Christian time period, we are in the darkening last quarter of the lunar cycle- until Thursday December 29.  

Last week we experienced the darkest time of the solar cycle- leading up to the Winter Solstice.

This will feel like a very sad and soulful time for many people.

2016 is coming to an end, and the Presidency of Barack Obama is soon to end also.

In many ways President Obama brought us closer to an Age of Aquarius. Though the Miltary/Industrial Complex still rules, his policies brought us “friendlier” relationships with Cuba, Iran, the Muslim world and Palestinians.

He also was the first President of color and he helped to move us towardgreater inclusiveness with the LGBT community by leading the way toward cultural acceptance of gay marriage and transgender people.

Now, if looking at life from a global outer world perspective, we will in many ways seem to be moving backwards in experiencing much of the old paradigm from a dying age.

The Trump administration and nationalistic movements in many western countries bring with it more separation and greater chances of world conflicts and war.

Though I strongly believe we are metaphorically taking 2 steps backward before taking many steps forward in a few years, it is understandable that many people are feeling greater fear and anger.

But even though the outer global world feels as if it is going backwards, those of us on a spiritual path will be challenged to grow and evolve.

How do we keep love in our hearts while the world is going crazy? How do we let go of hatred and fear when leaders in the outer world are bringing us policies that bring greater danger to our environment and Earth?

How can we keep our center when leaders in the new American administration are all very wealthy and militaristic?

How do we stop ourselves from being depressed when we witness greater misogyny and prejudice, while there is more world conflict and more separation between haves and have nots economically?

Christ, who is being celebrated by many now, gave us an example of having love, compassion, and faith in a world filled with hate, corruption, and injustice.

The beginning of the Pisces Age was begun around the birth of Christ with its fish symbols.  This birth happened just a few years after the births of Buddha and Lao Tse, and a few years before Mohammed, all signature figures of the Age of Pisces.

Though the messages of these spiritual masters was largely diluted and corrupted by churches in their names during the Pisces Age, it is incumbent on each us to resurrect and deeply own in our consciousness the essence of what each of these people represented.

The many faceted and mysterious great Goddess is an important part of the Age of Aquarius, and as she energetically joins with the spiritual masters of the Age of Pisces, we have our spiritual foundation for the Age of Aquarius.

But they are not above us in hierarchy in an Age of Aquarius.  They are us, integrated deeply in each of our hearts and souls.

And now that is our inner work: evolving spiritually in a toxic world, to be “in the world but not of the world”.

At the same time, we begin our outer work of planting seeds of change for the outer world. We will participate in protests, gatherings like the Million Woman March on the day after Inauguration Day for Donald Trump, and civil disobedience as was shown by Martin Luther King and Ghandhi.

We must each find our way to seeing the bigger picture and commiting to a New Age regardless of who is president or who is ruling the world.  Who do you believe runs this Universe? Is it Caesar of the material world or the energies of Love and Truth?

This week we experience the darkening Moon until December 29 at the New Moon in Capricorn at 1:53 AM EST.

That same day brings us the liberating, awakening energies of Uranus as it changes directions from Retrograde to Direct. Uranus, arguably more than any other planet, signifies change.

So there will be a feeling surrounding the 29th of new beginnings and big change.

The New Moon in Capricorn shows us the beginning of a greater sense of responsibility, loyalty, groundedness, and needs to accomplish.

The Sun is always in Capricorn on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day when many people make their resolutions. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn which rules Time.  Capricorn is also about plans, commitment, and discipline, which are a big part of resolutions.

Uranus changing directions often feels like radical change and revolution.

So this would then be a great time to make a commitment (Capricorn) to revolution and transformational change (Uranus).

I would also not be surprised by big world events around this time.

On New Years Eve, Mars will be conjunct Neptune.

Mars is action, force, and will.  Neptune as God of the Ocean is deep soul and feelings.  It is the inner spiritual world as ruling planet of Pisces.

It also rules alcohol and drugs.  So be very careful how much you use those to bring in the New Year 2017.

Neptune is also letting go, going with the flow and surrender.  So Mars’ force will be greatly diluted by Neptune.  So it is best not to force issues or agendas, and instead to be flexible and trusting of energies and realities beyond our controls.

till next week when we will look at the year ahead.

I will put out a YouTube video soon after the first. I also intend to host an ongoing streaming radio show soon also. More on that later.
