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.

Streams of Change and Astrology Forecast February 7-13

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

 

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

Ready or Not and Astrology Forecast December 13- 19

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 12, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

On and around Friday December 11 we received energies that assist us in getting out of stuck places and patterns.

Mars opposed Uranus and then there was New Moon in Sagittarius.

It is a signal that it is time to move forward.  We can begin to move beyond having to concentrate on intensive processing of emotions and thoughts, digging deeper to face our demons and shadows, and feeling stuck and unable to move forward.

It is time to more fully enter a new chapter of our lives here on Planet Earth.

We have been in this new chapter for awhile already, but now we can begin to stop mulling over what we imagine we did wrong,  stop feeling we are the victim to someone or something, and stop going over the same tapes in our minds that keep us trapped.

It is time to embrace the free spirit in us, and to allow the Universe and our Higher Selves to inspire our souls and help guide us.

It is time to let go of the excuses that have held us back, and to more fully take responsibility for our lives and the world we live in.

Indeed so many of us have been traumatized by our childhoods and earlier experiences, and challenged by the wounds we have endured and the karma we have received.

But there are times such as now when we can throw off the chains that have bound us and start to trust our deeper souls and the Universe.

Of course there will still be times when you will face your demons again, when you will need to feel your trauma again; but you can now begin to stop letting those issues Control your heart, mind and life.

What is running your show, so to speak?  Is it love or fear?

Now is the time, as the Sagittarius New Moon has just been experienced, to let the fire of spirit lift you forward in your life.

It has felt like a long time since the Eclipses of September.   We now are in a whole new realm of experience.

The global powers that be are trying to manage grave new terror threats, a weakening global economy, and a Middle East and world that is so susceptible now to some spark of miscalculation that would light a fire of world war.

President Obama, whatever you otherwise feel about the job he has done, has been holding back the tide of overwhelming forces of potential global disaster.

He opened up doorways to better relations with Iran and Cuba; he has resisted the temptation to demonize Islamic peoples; and he has tried to detach from his emotions in order to listen to his “better angels” inside.

Of course he is largely controlled by big Corporate interests and a decaying global  paradigm, as all presidents would be now.

But he at least is walking a thin line that has opened some consciousness and light into the new world and age.

There is the light of Diversity in Unity beginning to shine through his making relationship with Cuba, Iran, and Islam.  And his administration has helped open doors for greater rights for LGBT peoples.

And he has given credence to obvious abuse of African Americans as seen in Ferguson and elsewhere.

And he has taken part passionately in the recent global conference on Climate Change.  That conference has just come up with a plan to deal with Climate Change, a most postive world development.

The Uranus/Pluto square has been aspecting the natal Sun/Saturn of the USA from its birth on July 4 1776.  It has been doing so ever since the Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014.

The Sun in a person’s or any entity’s of country’s natal chart represents one’s central self and identity, one’s ego, but also one’s higher purpose.

Pluto and Uranus are two powerful transformational planets.   As they make aspect to the USA natal Sun they are trying to get the USA prepared for a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius.

As such the USA is needing to let go of its ego of Superpower.  It is hopefully in the process letting go a paradigm that gives license to impose its way of being on others.

President Obama’s time in office has shown some light as we have said before into a transformed USA ego and sense of purpose.

But at the same time there is a collective desire to cling to the old ego.

Is not Donald Trump a reflection of that narcissistic ego?

Can we as a nation rise beyond that ego, and reintegrate the better values from our founding principles.

All men are created equal with certain inalienable rights like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  But now those principles need to be applied to all peoples all over the Earth.

All people are created equal; diverse peoples living together in unity; and freedom to pursue one’s individual or country’s destiny are principles of the Age of Aquarius.

BTW the USA natal chart shows a Moon in Aquarius. The Moon is one’s inner soul and inner values.

If we can return to the core of our values we can be a benefit to humanity, not to dominate but to work in equality with all others.

The Earth and USA have also now more fully entered this new chapter of human life on Planet Earth, on the road to an Age of Aquarius in the 2020’s.

For all of us it is now “ready or not here it comes”.

There is no  more turning back and no more sitting on fences, no more hand wringing with fear.

We have each chosen which fork in the road we are taking, even if that choice is buried within- beyond our conscious knowing.

This coming week has no really strong aspects pushing or pulling us in any direction.

Nevertheless, we are on an “upward slope’ on the way to the Full Moon in Cancer on Christmas Day.  And we are at the same time on a “downward slope” on the way toward the Winter Solstice on December 21/22 (depending on what time zone you are in).

Processing on our lives and emotions and spiritual path will continue even though we are now taking the ride through this new chapter of life.

But that processing will have strong intention now of finding solution, fostering positive transformation, and continuing to awaken or stay awake to the truth and love all around.

Even if you feel some depression with the darkening days, winter coming on, or the state of our world; it is wise to find a way to see the glass of life as half full now, so you do not slip back into old stories and get swallowed up in fear or rage.

We are inexorably moving into the Age of Aquarius, even if events may seem frightening and foreboding.

Till next week,

Leo

2015: Year of Revolutionary and Evolutionary Change and Astrology Forecast December 28- January 3

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 27, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

2014 is coming to a close this week.  For most it has been a powerful year of change, transformational change into a new chapter of life.

New jobs, homes, relationships have manifested.   A new outlook on life, new spiritual perspectives and practices, awakenings, disillusionment, and breaking out of old programming are other ways change had been activated this past year.

The most important astrological event was the Cardinal Grand Cross last spring and early summer.  It combined with a couple of eclipses and Uranus square Pluto then also.

And in the autumn there were two more eclipses, and Uranus and Pluto were exactly square again.

In the greater world the Cardinal Grand Cross activated several prominent world events including the turmoil in Ukraine; the Ebola scare; the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza; the advancement of ISIS in Iraq and Syria; the killing of unarmed black men in Ferguson, New York and elsewhere; and the serious attempts to resolve issues with Iran.

We let you know last winter that the Cardinal Grand Cross would initiate a most important phase of transformation into an Age of Aquarius.  And combined with the exact Uranus/Pluto square that has been lasting from 2012-1015, we would see our world go through immense change both personally and globally.

We also let you know that the Cardinal Grand Cross was very close to America’s natal Sun in Cancer from its birth chart of July 4, 1776.   That would mean the United States would begin its transformation into a more equal member of the world community, beginning to let go of its Superpower status at the head of a western Empire on Earth.  It means America will change greatly in very fundamental ways.

This change had only just begun at the Cardinal Grand Cross and eclipses in April 2014. We predicted that the world as we know it would be quite altered in the 18 months after the April 2014 aspects.

That takes us to Autumn 2015 and yes America’s economy and standing in the world will change dramatically during the next 10 or 11 months.

The Middle East will continue to be a focal point of change, and it could very well trigger a world war during these next several months.  But also it is possible instead, as we have seen with the negotiations with Iran and the opening of relations with Cuba, changes that are aligned with the Age of Aquarius may require no major conflicts or wars.

In personal lives there will be more movement toward letting go of old programming from society and family that keeps you stuck in old self defeating ways.

There will be more awakening to truths that will set you free of the chains of dysfunctional and toxic beliefs, attitudes and patterns.

You will be assisted by the Universe to leave relationships, homes, and career orientations that are not aligned with your authentic being and your true function in the world community.

Another powerful year of change is ahead.

And the most meaningful time period this year will be late winter and spring.   Uranus will make its last exact square to Pluto on March 16, followed closely by a very strong Spring Equinox Day that will include a Total Solar Eclipse in very late Pisces.

This is symbolic of great clearings and endings on the one hand, and very important fresh new winds of renewal. This will all be followed by another eclipse, a Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries/Libra that connects with the Uranus/Pluto square to form a powerful Cardinal T-Square, almost as important as the Cardinal Grand Cross.

These aspects in late winter and spring of 2015 can be looked at as “Grand Openings” into the full immersion of our human souls into the transition from a Pisces Age to a Age of Aquarius.

World Events that last into the summer of 2015 and beyond will change our world perhaps even more drastically than in 2014.

There will be no more holding onto the shore of the old ways without a great price to pay spiritually, psychologically and perhaps even physically.

The ways you have been changing to make your self healthier spiritually, mentally and physically will require a stronger commitment from you during the late winter and spring.

Sitting on the fence of two worlds will no longer work, as the fence is going to break down.

It will be a wonder-full year of shifting tides in 2015.

This coming week brings the culture’s symbolic date for changing years.

And it could be a very energized New Year’s Eve and Day as the waxing Moon this week lasts all the way to Sunday the 4th at the Full Moon in Cancer, which we will talk more about next week.

In addition to the waxing phase of the lunar cycle playing out at the transition between 2014 and 2015; there will also be a very spirited Mars in Aquarius opposite Jupiter in Leo then.

So the winds of increasing energy will blow in this week and January 1 is the day when Mars makes exact aspect to Jupiter.

Mars in Aquarius brings in  high energies with social consciousness and desires for social connection even if only on social media.   Jupiter in Leo brings inspiration into creative and open-hearted expression.  There is also a greater tendency to self focus with Jupiter in Leo.

Many people could even be rather manic with this aspect, and this may cause leaps into what could bring trouble.  In the greater world this could translate into individuals or groups leaping into dangerous adventures.

Allow yourself to feel joy and positive vibes, but be careful not to leap before you look.

Next week’s Full Moon in Cancer will include both Uranus and especially Pluto in its signature, so this could be a week of change too.

Remember also that we are in Sun in Capricorn time of year, so of course resolutions are in order.  Also Sun in Capricorn means we can make plans to manifest our dreams or ideas now.  That will require, however, concrete plans, organization, discipline, and structured steps to implementing the plan.

Many people demonize Capricorn’s ruling planet, Saturn.  But Saturn represents the gravitational pull to keep free spirits here on Earth to fulfill their purpose in a given lifetime.

So use this Capricorn time of year to take full responsibility for your life and hence out of victim mentality.  That will make Saturn as your servant, not your tormenter any longer.

See you next week,

Leo

Moving Toward the Light and Astrology Forecast December 21-27

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 20, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We experience an important turning point at the Winter Solstice on December 21 at 6:03 PM EST.   And that annual turning point toward more light has more importance than usual as there is a New Moon in Capricorn also on the 21st, at 8:36 PM EST.  

Adding to the importance of this year’s Winter Solstice day is the fact that the transformational planet of awakening, Uranus, will change directions and go Direct that same day- at 5:45 PM EST.

All of these events happen within three hours of one another.  So it will be an especially good time then to be present, to meditate or at least stay aware of this shift.

Last weekend an exact Uranus/Pluto square was experienced in a very profound and powerful way by many people.

There was much intensity and even turmoil for many then.  Emotions were brought up to the surface and expressed.   Truth was spoken and in some cases there was a real breakdown of old thinking or ways of being.

Then afterwards there were breakthroughs and awakenings for some, and for others a facing of some core truths that were difficult to handle.

Much of the intensity has lifted for many now, and there has been a clearing and a greater acceptance of what is real and true.

Now at the Winter Solstice, which will bring an end to the move toward darker days, we feel the turning toward more hope for the future.

But remember that the Winter Solstice brings the Sun into Capricorn, and not long after that the Moon joins the Sun in Capricorn to create a New Moon.

So there are new beginnings and movement forward, but Capricorn is not about immediate gratification or fast movement, and is instead about the long haul, discipline, planning, and a slow building toward one’s goals.

It is true that Uranus, which will also be prominent on the Winter Solstice, is more lightning like energetically, and hence brings a feeling that one has broken some chains, woken up, and is liberated.

Even if you are feeling that, keep aware that even though Uranus is bringing you a quick inspiration or idea or sense of direction, there will be much work to go through and the results are unknown.

It will be a very good time around the Winter Solstice to make intentions and yes even resolutions, but making things stick and truly manifest will take effort and commitment to the process.

These are very transformational times and often now your heart and soul may not agree with what you think is the correct or safest thing to do.

That issue will need to be worked out through time.  It is true that during times of great change as we are experiencing now (and will continue to experience for quite awhile longer) that one’s heart and soul need to lead the way. That is because our heart and soul are connected to the energies that are moving through our world and through us.

But we each need to work on the apparent contradiction between what the heart and soul feel they are driven toward and what will apparently keep our lives feeling safe and secure.

Perhaps you will need to make the drastic change your heart is opening up to, but it is also possible your heart has merely let you know you that you have been asleep and detached from your passions.

You may still be able to bring some heart back into your current situation, or at least find some balance between the seeming opposites.

The energies in Capricorn tell us we will likely need to trust time to bring us the answers at the right time.

Our human family is truly taking a collective ride into new territory together.   Though many will instead say that there is never anything new under the Sun, that history always repeats itself, and that “Groundhog Day” repeat performances is all we can ever expect; they are dead wrong as there is a New Age we are rapidly moving toward.

And the changes will accelerate, especially as we move through late Winter and Spring 2015.

Uranus will square Pluto one more time, on March 16 2015.  A few days later, on the day of Spring Equinox March 20, there will be the first of two eclipses in a row.

Not only will be that be a very powerful and meaningful day, but it will also give a signature of deep transformational change for Spring Season 2015.

In April 2014 there was a Cardinal Grand Cross with Uranus and Pluto mixed within. There were also two eclipses that month.

And the Grand Cross triggered the USA Natal Chart from July 4 1776, as it was at the same exact Cardinal degree as the USA Sun placement that day- 13+ degrees of Cancer.

So there is growingly clearer view of the great changes the USA is going through in order for it to be aligned with the energies and realities of the Age of Aquarius.

Aquarius is about equality and Diversity within Unity.  There can be no Empires or Superpowers in an Age of Aquarius.

There is breaking down of the notion of superiority and privilege, and a greater sense that “we are all in this together”.

Much worldwide change will be triggered by events in the Middle East, and the economy is destined to be drastically changed as well.

With Cuba now being brought into more normal relations with the USA and west, with Iran being brought more into normality with the rest of the world, with Palestine being more and more accepted as its own state, there is much positive movement toward an Age Of Aquarius,equality, and Diversity in Unity.

There is also much awakening toward the need for even greater civil rights and fairness for African Americans, Hispanics and the Gay/Lesbian community. And of course there is a great need to understand the painful plight of so many women around the world.  Ane men are also caught in the chains of conditioning from the old paradigm, dying in wars that are most often fought for monied interests and the privileged.

But there are also many powerful forces that oppose such attempts at reconciliation, justice, and unity. And there is a real culture war developing between many in the Muslim world and the Judeo-Christian world.   And there are many who want the old world to stay at it is, or even to go back to an earlier time.

So during these times of transition, most especially when powerful planetary movements are erupting like Uranus Square Pluto, there will be much light coming through to awaken people to new consciousness and ways of being with one another on Planet Earth.

But there will also be much resistance to the new energies and new world.

That is like worlds colliding, bringing with it big breakdowns and huge breakthroughs.

And in each of our individual lives, we are experiencing similar breakdowns and breakthroughs.

If you truly are staying present and aware, open in your heart and mind, trusting the Universe and your soul’s journey, you will take the ride to your best and authentic self, to more authentic relationships too.

You will also see more synchronicities, signs from the Universe, and magic.

But you may also experience some pain as you resist the new energies, or as you watch old chapters and people or pets from those old chapters die or leave. You may feel anger, grief, being alone, confusion, and disorientation.  But you will be alive and evolving, and being part of a larger community of souls who are transforming just like you.

We are co-creating a new world together and bringing all the opposites together with truth as our guide.

Turn toward the light now as we move through a most important Winter Solstice this year. There is hope if you open your heart to receive it.

See you next week,

Leo
