Shadow Boxing and Astrology Forecast August 13-19

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It has been very intense this last week in the world and in many of our personal lives and emotions too.

It has been very frightening for many people, as the leaders of the USA and North Korea do their macho struts with one another, with we earthlings put in the shit storm of their narcissistic rage.

From a bigger picture, however, we are being taken through a dark passage of labor pains on the way to the Age of Aquarius

So now our lives are being taken out of our comfort zones, as Eclipse Seasons do,  and this one is much more intense than usual.

Breakthroughs in our consciousness are more likely now, as are breakdowns too.

We are being prepared for greater and greater transformation of life on Planet Earth entering the Age of Aquarius.   

We travel this week through the 4th quarter and final week before the much anticipated Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 21, which travels over the United States for the first time since 1918, the last year of World War I.

As we predicted several months ago, this current Eclipse Season brings the likelihood of war, at the very least the threat of major war.

We also let you know that Donald Trump would have his Mars in Leo from his natal chart triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo.  Mars is a planet of action, force, and yes war.

We did not give you any indication of the North Korean leader’s chart because there are different dates given for his birth.

But we did let you know that North Korea’s natal Saturn, from its founding date,  would be almost exactly triggered by this Total Solar Eclipse.  Saturn represents something that must be faced, that which one cannot escape. It also represents grave situations and often a predetermined fate.

We suggested that Israel and Israeli leader Netanyahu would also have the Mars in each of their charts triggered, as both have their Mars’ at 28 degrees of Leo, exactly where the Solar Eclipse will be on August 21.

We do have another month or so before this current Eclipse Season ends, so we will still look closely at what may happen in the Middle East.

Another “war” that is raging now in this Eclipse Season is a culture war.  That culture war is happening at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville Virginia.

White Lives Matter, Nazi, and KKK haters are protesting the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee, the most important confederate general from the Civil War.

Thomas Jefferson was the founder of University of Virginia.  Thomas Jefferson was the main inspiration for the USA Bill of Rights, which included the idea that “all men are created equal”.

And on the contrary Thomas Jefferson was a slave holder.  What did they really mean by “all men are created equal”?

These White Supremacist protests have been countered by protests from Black Lives Matter and others who strongly object to the White Nationalists.

Hundreds have shown up for the protests and violence has been breaking out. Three people were killed and many others injured.

All these wars are representative of old world paradigms that if continued will destroy us all.  The possibility of another world war hangs over our heads now.

Each of us is being urgently asked to release any connections we have to a world that believes life is merely survival of the fittest, which has created the idea that enemies must be conquered and destroyed.  And that old world has developed weapons of mass destruction created to ruthlessly destroy those enemies.

Hundreds of thousands of human beings, mostly innocent civilians, were killed by the atom bombs dropped by the United States on two Japanese cities to bring an end to World War II in August 1945.

Now many countries have weapons of mass destruction, as does North Korea now.

We are at a most urgent turning point as we approach the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21.  

Each of us must leave the belief system of superior versus inferior; have and have nots: perpetrator and victim; and the notion that those who are starkly different are enemies who need to be destroyed.

We are all part of the same human family and need to learn to coexist with one another peacefully.

We are moving toward an Age of Aquarius, but collectively right now it is feeling like we are entering a dark night of the soul before that new age fully arrives.

Many of us have already faced many of our individual demons and shadows during dark times.  We have then arisen into a new paradigm in our consciousness.

We must lead the way, and must leave behind hatred and violence from our hearts.

Of course we may get very angry at times, but do not need to be hateful and violent.

The Age of Aquarius is an age of Diversity Within Unity, so each of us must honor our own and others’ unique differences, but still know we are united by the circle of Oneness like the Yin/Yang symbol.

I am not sure how bad it will need to get before we learn our collective lessons now, so to transform our collective Consciousness to that of Love and Truth from the Age of Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season is a major turning point to let us know the direction we moving toward now as a human family.

This coming week is preparing us for the Total Solar Eclipse as we enter the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle begun at the Leo New Moon on July 23.

4th quarters are times of reflection, gathering, centering, and preparing for the New Moon, which this time will be a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21.

As we go through this 4th quarter we sense endings and goodbyes, we prepare and get ready.  But unlike most 4th quarters this one will be intense in anticipation for the Eclipse New Moon.

That is because this coming Eclipse New Moon in Leo is a much bigger new beginning than the usual new moon or even the usual Solar Eclipse New Moon.

This truly signifies an open portal into a New Chapter of our lives, on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And it may tend to be more confusing this week prior to the Eclipse New Moon, and in fact up until September 5. 

That is because Mercury is going Retrograde tonight Saturday August 12. It will last until September 5.  Then it will take another week or so to come fully out of any fogs in our minds.

So August 21 is when the portal opens into this big and important New Chapter of our lives; then September 5 is when clarity and direction are greater when Mercury goes Direct.

Then on September 19/20 at the New Moon in Virgo just before the Autumn Equinox; the New Chapter is made manifest.  This Eclipse Season ends.

New events that are  connected to the meaning of the portal opening at the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21 will have the green light to manifest.

It is best to meditate as often as possible, to be in nature as often as possible.  If you are drawn into great fear and inner darkness when watching or reading the news, keep your watching and reading the news to a minimum or even not at all.  It is important now to keep our emotions and minds clear from toxins and distortions, especially now with Mercury Retrograde.

Mercury Retrograde brings us to reflect on people and memories from the past.  It also helps us to see everything from a different angle and to question our previous decisions or direction.  But don’t change those directions or plans until clarity appears when Mercury goes back Direct again.

And of course Mercury Retrograde can play tricks with our minds, and being aware of that will help you to not get so easily taken in by those tricks of the mind.

With the intensity or the Total Solar Eclipse combined with Mercury Retrograde, it is important to not jump to conclusions or be impulsive.  Surrender to the process, let go of set agendas and being too controlling.   Trust all is happening as it must, and be patient.

Keep in mind that all that is happening is part of the bigger picture of transformation and transition into an Age of Aquarius.

Stay out of grave fear and hatred so you can center yourself, remain calm, and be connected and aligned with your Higher Self and the Universe.

From that place inside you will more likely see symbols and signs that show the way, experience synchronicity that brings magic and clarity, and see the connections that help you to know all is OK.

Love and Truth are guiding the way.  Fear tries to challenge that way.

Ego is not the enemy of our Higher Self, in fact some is needed for personal confidence and empowerment.

But ego must be the servant of our Higher Self not the leader.  When Higher Self is leading the way we know all is connected and happening for a reason.  When ego is leading the way we feel all as separate, in opposition without unity, and filled with fear and open to hatred for those not serving our ego needs.

Next week we will get even more into the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo that will happen next week.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses: There will be a follow up video within the next couple of weeks

Till next week,

Leo

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, Mercury Retrograde, and Astrology Forecast August 6-12.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on August 5, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week brings us important energy shifts as we experience a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius and Mercury Retrograde.

On Monday August 7 there is the first of 2 eclipses this August:  A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius at 2:11 PM EDT.

This is not a total lunar eclipse and it will not be seen in the United States as it happens during daylight hours all across the North American continent.

The Sun will be in Leo and the Moon exactly opposite in Aquarius.  

Lunar Eclipses are always Full Moons, and have the Sun and Moon exactly opposite one another. The shadow of the Earth covers the Moon creating the eclipse.

The Sun will be at 15+ degrees of Leo and the Moon will be at 15+ degrees of Aquarius. In this Full Moon Mars will be conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon, as it will be at 11+ degrees of Leo.  Mars will add more forcefulness to the event.

So if you have any planets in the mid degrees of fixed signs Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, or Scorpio you will be more affected than others.  And of course the Leo and Aquarius planets will be the most important.

This is a Full Moon, so those of you who are sensitive to the energies of Full Moons will be especially energized as eclipses have much more energy and power than the usual Full Moons.

I do not expect this Eclipse to be as important or strong as the next one,  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.  But it is still strong and important.

Eclipses “intend” to shake us up, take us off our usual balance, and create conditions for breakthroughs and awakenings, or for breakdowns.

An issue to be aware of with this Lunar Eclipse will be about expressing and knowing one’s heart (Leo), or instead using one’s head or mind for knowing (Aquarius).

As an example if someone was out choosing a car to buy, would they choose the one that they love because of its beauty and gadgets or would they choose the one they think is better for the environment and for lower gas mileage?

Aquarius is not only more leaning toward the mind, it is also leaning toward what is more socially conscious or better for the community. And it also tends to want that which is different, not necessarily what is considered “normal”.

Leo is more concerned with what opens its heart, is more popular, and perhaps gives it a better image. It likes people or things that it “falls in love” with.

Neither way is better, just different, as we need to trust both our heads and hearts.

Globally there may be conflicts between that which a strong leader demands (Leo) versus that which the larger community demands (Aquarius).

Aquarius sees the strong leader taking the power away from the people.  Leo sees the community of “equals” as never getting things done, indecisive, and without clear direction.

They need each other.

Pay attention to these issues playing out in your personal life and in the greater world. Watch for events in the 3-4 days surrounding this Eclipse for signs of what is wanting to break through or break down.    What is needing to be let go from the past, and what does one need to be open to that one is moving toward?

What represents the old chapter and old world, with its old patterns and beliefs; and what wants to open up that represents the new chapter in our lives?

Eclipses are good motivators for change and transformation.  Relationship issues may more likely show themselves than is usual. If so, then it is time to deal with things that have been pushed under the rug of our consciousness.

Wanting to more authentically express oneself may happen at this time.  And ego battles may be more likely now too.

The next Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21 will be even more likely to bring out these issues.

Not long after the frequencies of the Lunar Eclipse this week subside, we encounter Mercury Retrograde.

Mercury goes Retrograde in Virgo at 9 PM EDT on Saturday August 12.

Mercury will stay Retrograde during the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21, and will last until September 5 when it goes back Direct again. It will go into Leo during its Retrograde journey, which is where it will be at when it goes back Direct.

Like all Mercury Retrograde periods, our perceptions naturally change, as we tend to look at things differently.

We may give pause and shift our thinking about what we had previously planned on doing or saying; and we may then want to go in a different direction.

Do your best to wait until Mercury goes back Direct before making a final decision.  And it often takes a week or so after it goes Direct before real clarity appears.

And with Eclipse Season shaking things up and potentially creating more chaotic situations, the fogginess of Mercury Retrograde will make clarity and direction even more difficult to ascertain.

Let this Eclipse Season play itself out before jumping to conclusions. Of course we want to know what to do as soon as possible, but sometimes like now, we need to let the process unfold all the way.

Trust the Universe and your own Self to bring you what is right at the right time.

September should be as energized  and even more filled with important events than August, as the New Moon on August 21 opens up a whole new lunar cycle that reaches almost to the Autumn Equinox.

The Portal of new energy opens up on August 21 and many new experiences and events will follow.

But for now, we have a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon to experience, and it will bring a shift of energies, and also events that could be important.

Later this August we will encounter the Total Solar Eclipse with Mars not far away from it,  at close to the same time as Saturn going Direct,  Mars sextile Saturn and Jupiter, and Jupiter sextile Saturn.  

The last part of August will see the speed of change picking up steam. And this speed of change will continue through September and beyond as a Portal will be opened at the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21.

But for now, this week gives us an important Lunar Eclipse in Leo/Aquarius, that has within it Mars in Leo conjunct the Sun in Leo and opposite the Moon in Aquarius.

That will be followed closely by Mercury beginning its Retrograde movement on August 12.

Now is the time to let yourself let go and just take the roller coaster ride. It will start relatively slowly and pick up speed as it goes, with its most intense period being around the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses:

Till next week,

Leo

Out with the Old, In with the New, and Astrology Forecast July 30-August 5

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 29, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now pretty solidly into the Eclipse Season, even though we have not yet experienced the first eclipse yet.  It will be on August 7, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius.

We entered Eclipse Season at the Leo New Moon on July 23. It is the first of two Leo New Moons, the 2nd one a powerful Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.

The sign Leo at its worst is big Ego,  and dominating personality.

So last week not long after the Leo New Moon we are introduced to Anthony Scaramucci, the new Communications Director of the White House; and General John Kelly, the new White House Chief of Staff.  These are dominating men for sure, with large egos.

This shows us Trump wants to get even more dominating and fascistic in his governance. They, especially Scaramucci, will be mini-me’s of Trump.

Also this last week to start up the Eclipse Season, North Korea tested a missile that is said to be able to reach New York and even Chicago.   And Iran also tested a a long range missile this last week.

And in Israel/Palestine much violence has been erupting around Temple Mount and Al Aqsa Mosque praying compound for Muslim worship. This is an especially holy place for both Israel and the Arab world and very hotly disputed for who has ownership.

From a much more positive viewpoint this past week, pointing us to the Age of Aquarius:  The UN has stated it wants to ban pesticides, which will negatively affect Monsanto; and Tesla is intending to mass produce battery operated cars at an affordable price. Also the attempt of pushing through an even worse health care plan was defeated in the Senate. I know the day is not far away when single payer health insurance will be what the USA has in place for universal health care.

As we often state, there is the old world which will now come at us in an often monstrous way in order to show us what we need to get rid of in our world; while the light of the new world comes pouring in to show us what is coming in from the Age of Aquarius.

Look at your own life that way too.  Stay present to see old ways of being in your life that need to be released.  And open up to embrace new ways that are more healthy for you, are aligned with your authenticity, and are connected to the new age we are moving into.

We are all going through this process to some extent, and now in Eclipse Season, there will be events and inner stirrings that will accelerate the process of transformation.

The events from the old world are and will continue to be events that can evoke great fear in us. We must stay connected to the bigger picture, to the Universe and to love and trust in our hearts. The focus cannot be on the fear or hatred.

Trump’s administration, from both a negative and positive standpoint, is weakening the standing of the USA in the world.  The positive part of that is that the USA is moving toward being an equal member of the world community.  President Obama was moving in that direction already.

Now this administration is taking us temporarily backwards into “America First” and dominance, not relationship with the rest of the world.

This is and will continue to cause countries like Iran and North Korea to want to flex their military muscles. This old attitude will also tend to move us toward a greater likelihood of war.

As we have said before, this month of August is a major turning point to show us what direction we are moving in with our military and economy.

And of course that military and economy are what make up the Military/Industrial Complex that dominates the USA and world.  It is what will need to break down in order for the USA and world to transform into the Age of Aquarius.

This coming week, just before the Lunar Eclipse next week, brings us Venus moving into Cancer;  Uranus changing directions to Retrograde;and Jupiter square Pluto.

Venus moves into Cancer this Monday July 31. It will stay in Cancer until August 26. While in Cancer, the planet of love and relationship seeks a nurturing kind of loving, one that is understanding, supportive, and soul connected.  If your relationships lack this quality, it will be much more evident this month.

You may not be giving others this nurturance, but even more likely you are not receiving this nurturance.

On August 2/3 Uranus stops and then goes from Direct to Retrograde.  When a planet changes directions its energy and purpose are in the spotlight of our lives.

Uranus acts contrary to the accepted and often conventional ways, it rules rebellion and revolution. Uranus also wants liberation from anything and anyone that “chains” it up.

Uranus takes us outside of any boxes of thinking we have been stuck in, helping us to think inventively about possibilities.

And of course Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius, so let it help you this week to get you out of ruts and old stuck ways. It can then help you to further your movement toward new ways, even if those new ways are not considered “normal” by society, family, or even yourself.

Surprising events in the world may also occur.  And for this Uranus movement and for Eclipse Season in general, natural calamities are more likely, like Earthquakes, Hurricanes, etc.

Jupiter square Pluto on Friday August 4 is the most intense and powerful aspect this week. It is an appetizer to the Lunar Eclipse next Monday the 7th.

It is important this month to allow yourself to let go and take the ride.  Try not to judge too much, make absolute pronouncements or decisions. Let it all play out and do your best to trust the process.

This advice will be especially pertinent with Mercury going Retrograde on August 12, in between the two eclipses.

Do your best not to fret or look down for long.  No one event or thought or emotional eruption is the end of any story, so to speak.  Let it all play out.

This is an important month for motivating us to commit ever more strongly to our own growth and evolution, to our contribution to our world in its journey into an Age of Aquarius.

There will be magic, synchronicity, and symbols from the Universe this month.  There will be shows of love you did not expect.  There will be times when you can clearly see there is a new world we are moving into.

The trick is to concentrate on those things, not focus on what will bring you more fear and worry.  It is true the old world will be showing its worst face and attempting to keep the old paradigm alive.

So it is our role to show the new world’s best face and to make sure we connect with the new paradigm being born.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses:

Till next week,

Leo

In the Arms of the Universe and Astrology Forecast July 9-15

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on July 8, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this forecast/blog, we are still several hours before the Full Moon in Capricorn, which is at 12:07 AM on the 9th of July EDT. This has been a rather sobering and sometimes intense full moon experience for many.

A Capricorn Full Moon is often sobering, but there has been an added edginess to this one, and that is because Pluto is conjunct the Moon and opposite the Sun of this Full Moon.

Pluto of course is the guardian of the underworld, and as such it holds what is lying deep inside our bodies and souls.

In a civilized world, humans have learned to bury their more basic instincts, and hide, even from themselves any emotions that can be seen as negative, like rage, jealousy, shame, envy, greed, lustful feelings, panic, or desperation.

And of course many of those more primal instincts can be very destructive to self, others, or society.

Freud gave those instincts the term “Id”, which he said could be controlled by one’s “superego”, which is our moral compass or conscience.

Pluto, guardian of the underworld, guards our more primal “Id” instincts, and our repressed memories from earlier wounds and traumas.

So when Pluto is around by transit, it can bring up that which we have held down deep inside of us.

If someone says something that pushes our buttons, our usually controlled emotions or instincts may erupt.

Perhaps we will express in passive-agressive ways, or through sarcasm, but often anger/rage, in whatever form, is the result of Pluto triggering our suppressed or repressed instincts or emotions.

Whenever I see Pluto being activated in a chart or activating a chart I know there may be something normally held back, or made secret, that will be expressed.  When I see a combination of Mars and Pluto together, I know something explosive is likely to be expressed.

And I usually watch Mars, Pluto, or Pluto/Mars combinations when looking at a nation’s chart or the leader of a nation’s chart.

In August, at the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo, Trump’s Mars will be in conjunction with that Eclipse.  The eclipse is at 28+ degrees of Leo, and Trump’s Mars is at 26+ degrees of Leo, a relatively close conjunction.

Bibi Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, also has his Mars at 26+ degrees of Leo, so he and Trump will always have their Mars triggered at the same time, and this eclipse is one of those times.

To add to this series of connections, Israel from its natal chart of May 14, 1948 has its Mars at 28+ degrees of Leo, exactly conjunct the Total Solar Eclipse. And the USA Mars will be in almost exact alignment with Saturn that day.

And another strange connection between Trump and Netanyahu, especially so at the Solar Eclipse this August, is that both were born on days of eclipses:  Netanyahu at a Solar Eclipse in Libra, and Trump at a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.  Trust me, it is rather rare for someone to be born on the day of an eclipse of any kind.

So we can expect some kind of important turning point to occur for both Israel and the USA near the date of the Solar Eclipse in August.   And whatever it is, it will have to do with something militaristic.

Now that could also mean military is calmed down or held back, but more likely it is activated then in some important way.

And these turning point events do not have to be right on the Eclipse, but within a month or so either way.

Let’s look at this coming week:  This week we begin to come down from the Capricorn Full Moon by Tuesday or Wednesday.  After that, until the next New Moon, in Leo on July 23, we contract, ease up, and gather and center ourselves.

That New Moon in Leo on the 23rd will bring in the first breezes or perhaps winds of Eclipse Season.

Please remember;  all that will happen is necessary to the transformation into an Age of Aquarius.

Our human family, even the most stubborn of us, need to know the old ways must be released forever if we are to survive and evolve.

Dog eat dog, every man for himself, take all you can get, win at all costs belief systems need to be buried.

Believing we live in a meaningless, disconnected Universe that only offers random events, and “scientific” proofs needs to be released.

Believing some are superior and  others inferior in value in our human family has seen its time pass.

Using and abusing the Earth for what we can get from her, and without care for her is killing life on this planet.

Continuing to make our material needs more important than our souls kills our connections to one another, to God/Goddess, to the Universe, and to Nature.

We are on the threshold of an Age of Aquarius, and we are so much closer than it seems on the surface.

So know where we are headed, and get your consciousness and actions aligned with this New Age of Aquarius.

Concentrate on Love and Truth.  Open up to the Light of new consciousness wanting to pour through our veins.  Release the blocks. Clear your chakras. Open your mind and heart, think for your self, feel your truth, make intention to express your authenticity and purpose, be awake to the signs and symbols and synchronicities.

Know all is connected and meaningful, no matter how it looks on the outside, send away your fears and do not feed your hatreds.

We are safe in the arms of the Universe, let go and feel it.

Till next week,

Leo

Resting Up and Astrology Forecast July 2-8.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 1, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Cancer New Moon on June 23.  So thus we are waxing our way up to the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 7/8.

So this week we are only 3 weeks away from the intial winds of Eclipse Season. Then the 1st eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon will be on August 7.  The 2nd eclipse, a most powerful Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo will be on August 21.

These Eclipse Seasons usually happen twice a year, with 2 eclipses in each season.

Eclipse Seasons begin two weeks or so before the first eclipse in a season, and extend to at least two weeks after the last eclipse in a season. These seasons are almost always big turning points in world and personal affairs.

The last Eclipse season was from January 27- March 27 2017.

The Eclipse Seasons often have breakdowns of old habits, patterns, beliefs, and sometimes even breakdowns in relationships, jobs, families, and home lives.

But just as frequently there are usually breakthroughs into awakened thoughts and new ways of living, better relationships, jobs and home lives.

Change is quite frequent during Eclipse Seasons, and much of that change can become transformational, and can open one up to healing of old wounds and traumas.

Keeping status quo is difficult during an Eclipse Season, and usually some part of one’s life will show big movement and change, even if it is one’s belief systems or ways of perceiving one’s life.

Often the issues that are ripe for change and transformation show up before the Eclipse Season, but the intensity of need for their transformation heats up appreciably during the Season, and especially so close to the actual Eclipse event.

If a country or person has any of their personal natal planets in close aspect to the sign and degree of the Eclipse, then that country or person will be most challenged with issues that require one’s close attention.

For instance the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21 will be at almost 29 degreees of Leo.  Donald Trump’s natal Ascendent is at 29 + degrees of Leo and his Mars is at almost 27 degrees of Leo.

So his rising sign, which signifies how he interacts with his world, and his Mars, which signifies how he asserts, fights, and defends himself, are in self involved Leo.

Leo expresses openly and creatively, but when out of balance expresses in a totally self centered way, which if taken to the limit becomes narcissism.

That Leo part of his disposition will be triggered around the eclipse, and since specifically his Mars in Leo will be triggered, he will be vociferously fighting or defending himself (even more than usua), and not unlikely will be using that aggression as Commander in Chief of the United States military.

If your own natal planets will be triggered, you too will have parts of your psyche and life activated and put in the spotlight for change and transformation.

If you have planets from 26 degrees Leo to 1 degree of Virgo you will be greatly affected by that Total Solar Eclipse on August 21.   If you have planets from 26 degrees of Aquarius to 1 degree of Pisces you will be at least substantially affected.

If you have planets from 26 degrees of Taurus to 1 degree of Gemini or 26 degrees of Scorpio to 1 degree of Sagittarius you will be at least somewhat affected.

And of course all of us will be affected by the eclipses as citizens of the world, and most especially the USA where this Total Eclipse will be seen.

World events that are warm now will be much hotter during the actual Eclipse Season, which will begin around the Leo New Moon on July 23.

For now find what nurtures you and helps you to feel safe and loved.  Gather yourself and solidify what is important to you.

It is Sun in Cancer time of year when nature is abundant and the needs for nurturance and unconditional love are at their highest.   What signifies home and family to you needs to be experienced before Eclipse Season begins.

The most vulnerable in our world will need the most care now: our children, our elderly, our wounded, our innocent animals.

This week begins rather intensely as Mars opposes Pluto on Sunday July 2.  Be careful to not emotionally overreact reacting to situations and people.

Also this week, as the Moon gets brighter and brighter on its way to a full moon, Venus will move from Taurus to Gemini on the 4th of July, and will stay in Gemini until July 31.

As Venus moves out of Taurus and into Gemini, it leaves its priority being for physical comfort and care, and for monetary and relationship security.

Its new priority becomes being social and gaining intellectual stimulation, being light and free spirited, and open to being a social butterfly.

On July 5 Mercury leaves Cancer and enters Leo, where it will stay until July 25.

When in Cancer, Mercury’s mental tendencies are to combine its head with its feelings, and sometimes to be confused between thinking and feeling.

As Mercury, the planet of  thinking and communicating, shifts into Leo,  fun creative thinking and openly sharing of ideas become greater priorities.

And at the end of this week,  there is a Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn on July 8 overnight into July 9 at 12:07 AM EDT.

Nurturance and inner values (Cancer) are needing to be balanced with needs for accomplishment and outer validation of one’s efforts (Capricorn).

Balance is also needed between permissive unconditional allowing attitudes (Cancer), with strict guidelines and rules and clear boundaries (Capricorn).

The actual Full Moon has Pluto conjunct the Moon in Capricorn which increases the emotional intensity and opens things up to transformation through catharsis.

Full Moon have an energetic effect a day or two before full moon, on the date of the full moon and up to two days after.  This Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn can also bring up parental issues and can make clear what iis needed for greater stability in one’s life.

The next full moon will be on August 7, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.

Time now to nurture and stabilize before the intensity increases in Eclipse Season.

Till next week,

Leo

Opening Up for Change and Astrology Forecast June 25- July 1.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on June 24, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in the last few weeks before Eclipse Season begins at the New Moon in Leo on July 23.

The first eclipse will not be until the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius on August 7,  but the Leo New Moon in late July will show us the first winds blowing in for the stormy Eclipse Season.

In fact the Leo New Moon in late July will be the first of two Leo New Moons in a row, a relatively rare occurence.

The first Leo New Moon on July 23 is at 1 degree of Leo.  The second Leo New Moon on August 21 is at 29 degrees of Leo.

But more importantly that second Leo New Moon on August 21 will also be a Total Solar Eclipse in Leo.  That Total Solar Eclipse New Moon will be travelling and seen across the USA on a diagonal line from Oregon to South Carolina.

It will be the first Total Solar Eclipse to travel across the USA since June 8 1918. It was then in Gemini.

World War I and the Russian Revolution were in full force then, though the World War would end in November that year.

On the actual date of June 8, 1918 at the Total Solar Eclipse in Gemini, Nova Aquila was discovered. A Nova is a sudden eruption of a bright new star.  This was the brightest nova since 1604 when Kepler’s Nova erupted.

Interestingly this nova became a rare “recurrent nova” as it erupted again in 1941 and 2000.  

1941 was the beginning of World War II for the USA.  2000 was the year George Bush was elected president.  George Bush was president for the 9-11 Twin Towers terrorist attack in 2001 and the beginning of the War in Iraq in 2003, both monumental events.

Most novas occur at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy in late Sagittarius.   Saturn will be at the center of the Galaxy in November of this year.

Yet it is not likely, though it could happen, that a major event will happen exactly on August 21 at the Total Solar Eclipse.

More likely is that August will be a turning point for our world in many ways, and major events could occur in July, August, September, or even beyond that are related to the Total Solar Eclipse.

Stay alert for the signs that will show us what the major turning point will be about- in the world and in our personal lives.

This Total Solar Eclipse very closely aspects USA natal chart (its Moon in Aquarius); Donald Trump’s chart (his Mars and Ascendant); and also the natal charts of Syria and North Korea.  We will talk more about all of this as we get closer to the actual Eclipse event.

This turning point should show us the likelihood of a major war, or instead the diffusing of intensity toward a major war.  It may also show us the direction of our American and world stock markets and economy.

In personal lives, the New Chapter of your life will get a clearing of what is blocking its way,  and a clearer direction of where you are going.

So now we are just beginning the Cancer lunar cycle, which began at the Cancer New Moon on Friday June 23.  This lunar cycle ends on July 23 at the Leo New Moon, which will open up the Eclipse Season.

There will be increasing intensity after that, with a concentration of intensity on August 7 at the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius, then again at the aforementioned Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21.

This week we continue with a growing or waxing Moon, one that will reach fullness on July 8/9 at a Capricorn Full Moon.

Planetarily speaking this week is a mild week, though your transformational journey could still bring you challenges.

That is because we are all being prompted to keep releasing old tapes, old patterns, and old programming that have kept us stuck.   That process will increase exponentially during Eclipse Season, but transformation is accelerating all year long.

As we release these old ways, we open ourselves to brighter light and more loving people and situations.

Of course releasing old ways can also mean leaving jobs or relationships or places we live;  but no matter what,  we need to release that which clogs our consciousness and chakras and stops energy from freely moving through our bodies, minds, and souls.

You will know when it is time to release.   You will know in your body and soul.  You will know by the fact that the same situations keep coming up over and over again.

You will know by seeing old relationship patterns keep recycling in your life.  You will know by seeing you are bored or frustrated with living an inauthentic life or by waiting so long to make change.

We cannot stop the movement of change and transformation in our lives now, yet we are the co-creators of how that change will manifest.

If you see what is happening in your life as meaningful, and not a victimization; then you will have the positive energy and will to transform old unhealthy patterns into new thoughts and ways that will bring better energies, people and situations into your life, and help you to lead a more authentic, satisfying and fulfilled life.

Till next week,

Leo

Goddess Be and Astrology Forecast June 18-24.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on June 17, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week, as we leave the fast paced mentally active Gemini energies for the more contained energies of nurturance in Cancer.

On Tuesday/Wednesday the 20th/21st there is the important yearly transition from spring to summer at the Summer Solstice.  This event happens overnight on June 21 at 12:24 AM EDT.   On Friday June 23 at 10:31 PM EDT, the Cancer theme continues when the Moon meets the Sun for a New Moon in Cancer.

At the Summer Solstice, Light minutes of the day are at their greatest in relation to Dark minutes of the day.  But starting then, dark minutes begin to grow while light minutes begin to wane. Then at Autumn Equinox light and dark are equal, just as they are at Spring Equinox.

Summer Solstice is symbolically similar to high noon of a day.  Winter Solstice is like midnight time of day.    Spring Equinox is like dawn and Autumn Equinox is like sunset.

So now the Sun is at its zenith in the northern hemisphere, as heat has been growing as well as light.

Usually at this time of year events in the world have heated up also, and this year should not be any different.

And in August, with two major eclipses, including most importantly a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 21, which will travel across the USA, issues and events will then be on fire.

So for now feel the shift to summer, and to the Sun going into Cancer, which it does every year at Summer Solstice.

The sign Cancer feels right when following what feels natural at the time, and following where one’s feelings take one.

At Cancer time of year Nature is at its most abundant, and there can be a strong feeling of being taken care of by Mother Nature.

And Cancer is an archetype of Mother, whether that be personal Mother or a more Universal Mother Goddess. The Moon is the ruling “planet” of Cancer.

With the Cancer Mother, one wants to feel safe and sound, nurtured and cared for, seen and appreciated.

So many people did not get that experience from their personal Mother or Father (who can also represent that Cancer nurturer archetype).

Ou world has gotten so far away from what is natural and right, and from what the Feminine truly represents, which is why finding true Motherly care can be so difficult.

Certainly in the USA, the programming is to accomplish and be successful out in the world, often at the expense of the inner world and inner values.  One is expected to Do, not just Be, which is what the sign Cancer represents.

When the Mother is taking care of a baby, she is loving it for just who it is, for just being itself.  This is Cancer love, as is making this baby feel safe, nurtured and nourished.

To love someone unconditionally is Cancer at its best.  To hover over, to not respect others’ boundaries, and to emote without control, is Cancer at its worst.

Cancer can also tend toward permisssiveness, in contrast to its opposite sign Capricorn, which tends toward strictness and firm rules.

So now at Cancer time of year, at the Summer Solstice and New Moon in Cancer, we  will be most aligned if we can just Be; if we can do things that nurture us; if we can allow ourselves to follow our instincts and feelings more than our minds.

Cancer also represents family, both our birth family and the grown up family we develop when we have children.

Many people are disappointed with blood family from their childhood, and do not feel appreciated by that family as they grow up.

So instead more and more people are seeking a sense of family from friends and from those who one feels seen by and appreciated.  One seeks family of those who are “birds of a feather” with them.

The Age of Aquarius brings us more and more connections that are beyond the traditional sense of family. This includes gay and lesbian families, or families with Trans members, or families with children who were conceived in ways other than male and female intercourse. Cloning and stem cell research is also very Aquarius.

These trends certainly will never preclude male and female mating prevailing, which has always been nature’s choice for all its creatures.

So in this New Age, the experience of family is transforming, and Cancer’s best application is knowing we are all family, all humans together in One great big, though often dysfunctional family.

This lunar cycle begun at the Cancer New Moon on June 23 is the last lunar cycle before Eclipse Season begins. Eclipse Season begins to blow in at the Leo New Moon on July 23, to be followed by a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on August 7 and a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 21.

So now at the New Moon in Cancer this week, it is time to get started, as at all New Moons.

It is best to get started on bringing things together, finding nurturing circumstances and people, and allowing your self to be loved and taken care of- by yourself and others. And of course it is a great time to nurture and care for others, especially  those who are vulnerable.

The Goddess is at her strongest at Cancer time of year.  It is now best to trust the Feminine forces of the Earth and Universe. Also trust your feelings, yet also trust your strength and Mother Bear protectiveness when those you love are hurting.

In the greater world Cancer time of year unfortunately often translates into a toxic family/tribal consciousness.

It becomes my family or nation or culture or religion against yours.  Do not get sucked in to the fear and hatred that comes with this Hatfield/McCoy conflictual attitude.

My way is not better or worse than anyone else’s way- no matter how it appears.   Each culture has its own ways that are right for them.  We need to find and feed the places of connection between us.

There is great danger now of  the growing splits and separations to tear us all apart and create even more inequities, abuses, and conflicts.

We are at the same time moving closer together, toward greater connection and love, more meaning and synchronicity.  We are moving into a Diversity within Unity Age of Aquarius.

Both worlds are happening simultaneously.

We can no longer straddle the fence.  It is time to choose a direction. Choose before the Eclipses in August. Begin to arrange your life in accordance with that choice.

Till next week,

Leo
