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

Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon and Astrology Forecast March 29- April 4

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 28, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The giant portal that has been opening this early spring of 2015 will open more fully this week.  This happens as we approach the second and last eclipse of the season: A Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.

This eclipse is on Saturday April 4 at 8:06 AM EDT.  It falls right in between two Christian holy days: Good Friday and Easter Sunday.  Good Friday is symbolically understood as when Jesus died on the cross; and Easter Sunday when he arose from the dead.

Most of Australia, the Far East, Hawaii and Alaska, Australia, and the west coast of the USA will see most of the eclipse.  The midwest and especially the east coast USA will see very little of the eclipse process.

This Lunar Eclipse will be quite powerful as it includes the Uranus/Pluto square.  Uranus will be conjunct the Sun in Aries and opposite the Moon, while Pluto will square both the Sun and Moon.  This is happening just after the March 16 exact square of Uranus and Pluto, their last such meeting of 7 passes- which started in 2012.

This Total Eclipse forms a Cardinal T-Square formation with Uranus and Pluto, a formation which is almost as powerful as last year’s Cardinal Grand Cross.

As was true with the Cardinal Grand Cross last year, this T-square formed with Uranus and Pluto will make close aspect with the USA natal chart of July 4, 1776. The USA Sun and especially Saturn are being aspected again.

So that means this Lunar Eclipse formation will symbolize the huge transformation the USA is going through over the 18 months from April 2014 to October 2015. Events surrounding this eclipse may feel fated.

You can expect much change in the world and especially the USA now and for the next 6 months and beyond.

It is no mere coincidence that the Middle East and North Africa are bringing us so many important events now, like the Israeli election, the nuclear Iran talks coming to a climax, and the bombings and turmoil in Yemen.

The balance of power in the world has been shifting, and now as we come through this portal opening this spring, there will be a spike in the speed of this transformation.

The natal charts of Israel, Iran, and Syria are also being touched off this spring 2015, so we can expect much more turmoil and conflict to erupt in the Middle East in order to assist the process of breaking down the barriers that hold back the light that is wanting to burst through.

The Old World’s paradigm is held very strongly in the Middle East, so much needs to be broken down so healing and transformation have a chance there.

It is the Military/Economic complex that runs so much of our world, so we can over the next several months expect breakdowns of the economic and military structures that hold up the old world and its paradigm.

Chaos will certainly become more prevalent during the transformation, but so also will bullying attempts to keep the old order intact.

This Aries/Libra lunation signifies a split between conflict (Aries) and peace (Libra); doing it how I see fit (Aries) and giving in to what others want (Libra); courage to stand up for myself (Aries) or doing what is best for the relationship (Libra).

You will see these themes play out in the world and in personal lives.

In any healthy relationship both Aries and Libra needs are met.  Aries is ruled by Mars and Libra ruled by Venus, so male and female need to be integrated as well.

In a healthy relationship there is a balance between independence and togetherness. If there is too much independence there is little intimacy and togetherness. If there is too much togetherness there is greater chance for co-dependence and losing one’s true self.

Remember that this Total Lunar Eclipse is a Full Moon, but it is Full Moon with much more energy. Many of you really feel Full Moon’s and are greatly affected by them, as are hospitals, police stations and the ocean’s tides.

So expect even greater shakeup than the usual Full Moon, as we get closer and closer to the actual event on Saturday April 4 at 8:06 AM EDT.

Relationships are most affected now, whether those are romantic or family or friend or between countries.

Though there may be more conflict or reopening of old wounds, there is also more opportunity for breakthroughs, for healings, for improving or transforming old patterns that have kept you stuck in unsatisfying relationship dynamics.

it is a good time to talk things through, to empower yourself and speak your mind.  But it is also a good time to truly listen, to put yourself in the other person’s shoes so you can better understand their position.

Also watch closely as the nuclear talks with Iran take shape this week.  How these talks evolve will be so important for the Middle East and actually the whole world as a result.   There are Shia/Sunni conflicts getting more deadly; Muslim/Judeo Christian divisions; Israeli/Palestinian disagreements; western world/Russian and Chinese differences that the Middle East rests upon.

And all of these are essential ingredients in the makeup of the Diversity within Unity Aquarian Age we are moving into.

Eventually we will need for there to be a sense of oneness, of one human family with many different members trying to find agreement.

And just like in a healthy family, though there is disagreement and sometimes even horrendous fights,  there is no disowning or making an enemy of a family member.

Once we understand we are all in this together, then we will let go of weapons of mass destruction and demonizing of other religions, cultures, races, or nations.

We have a long way to go.

And in relation to our Aries/Libra Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, there is need to not demonize men or women, to make one the good guys and the other the bad guys.

All opposites are meant to be a part of wholeness and unity, just as the Yin/Yang symbol shows opposites within a circle of unity- differences that complement one another not destroy one another.

Remember that whomever you have been brought together with in relationship is for the purpose of learning more about your self and your self in relationship- no demonizing is appropriate.  If someone is abusing you or treating you badly, you may be learning to empower your self or build better boundaries.  Deciding whether to let the person go or to work out your common issues together- is on a deeper level symbolic of your evolution as a human in relationships.
