Breaking Away and Astrology Forecast February 10-16

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 10, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we passed through the New Moon in Aquarius this last week, we effectively put an end to Winter Eclipse Season 2019.

This coming week, still “climbing upward” through the waxing half of the current lunar cycle, we experience a powerful and liberating planetary combination of Mars conjunct Uranus at the last degree of Aries (29+ degrees).

Last week, after the Aquarius New Moon on the 4th, the first winds of this Mars/Uranus conjunction were blowing in.

Events, that are a direct result of the recent eclipses, will be ready to enter our world, both personal and collective.  The next few months will be filled up with important and life changing wake-up calls and motivations to push our lives forward.

The Mars/Uranus conjunction, which we began experiencing last week, brought many difficulties in relationships.  Mars/Uranus in Aries is very independence minded, action oriented, and motivates one to be true to Self sometimes at all costs.

Any boxes you are in, especially boxes that have severely limited your independence and freedom, will want to break open.  Action that you have been putting off will be triggered for movement forward.  Relationships that have tried your patience and your ability to retain compassion, will be severely tested.

Desires for liberation and “breaking out” will open up more in each of us.

And any boxes you have been pushed into or pushed yourself into will be cracking open.

This Uranus/Mars conjunction is exact on the 12th, overnight into the 13th; but its effects will be felt all week long.

You may be challenged to be empathetic in relationships, as this Mars/Uranus conjunction tends toward the needs of Self more than “others”.

Co-dependence and relationship patterns that enable people to stay stuck, will be threatened as well.

This conjunction happens at 29+ degrees of Aries, so it triggers by trine the important Total Solar Eclipse (that travelled across the USA) in August 2017.

Remember the passion for war between North Korea and the USA then? Remember the violence in Charlottesville Virginia that month, violence that felt like the American Civil War in the late 1800’s? This had a strong racial element to  it, with marches by KKK and neo nazi’s.

Now this month there is a second meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un; and Virginia has been facing racial issues with its Governor this month.

But there is another conflict going on that is not directly related to those issues, but is beginning to have the same passion for war. It is not so much with North Korea yet, but with Venezuela now.

Venezuela has the world’s largest supply of oil reserves and is a weak country militarily.  It is now in the crosshairs of the USA military as it is going through a coup attempt against its elected President Maduro.

The USA and some European countries are firmly backing the opposition leader who has already declared himself the new president. This is obviously an attempt to control Venezuela, as was previously done in many countries by the USA and other colonialist nations.

And most recently Iraq, Syria, and Libya have been invaded or helped to destabilize by the USA.

Phony reasons for invasion are made up, like WMDs in Iraq, chemical attacks by Syrian government in Syria, etc.

Now some countries will claim to be saviors for the Venezuela people.   Many new leaders in the USA see this old pattern coming back up again and want no part of the regime change that is being set up by the USA and some western countries.

Besides the Total Solar Eclipse button being pushed by the Mars/Uranus conjunction this week, the USA natal Mars at 21+ degrees of Gemini is being opposed by Jupiter in Sagittarius now.

Important USA military and police actions have occurred when the USA Mars is activated.  And the assassinations of JFK and MLK both happened when that USA natal Mars was triggered.

Remember that the USA Military and Economic Empire is in the process of huge transformation now and through the early 2020’s.

In fact the USA natal Pluto in its 2nd house at almost 28 degrees of Capricorn (which symbolically is the Military/Industrial complex) is being activated by the square of the Mars/Uranus conjunction in Aries this week.

Israel, Syria, and North Korean planets are being activated by that Mars/Uranus conjunction now too. And Venezuela’s Jupiter and Pluto are being triggered by the Jupiter transit this week.

In May/June this year Jupiter, accompanied by Mars in Gemini, will again hit that same 21+ degree of Gemini.

Whatever happens this week, and overall in February, will give us strong clues of what will happen in the near future to the Military/Industrial Complex of the USA.

This means big transformation in this New Chapter of life, on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortex, who is growing by leaps and bounds after being elected to the USA House of Representatives, is attempting with others to present a New Deal for the future USA.

She and other House leaders put out a new Green Deal, which shows the potential for combating Climate Change, providing health and education for all Americans. And part of the solution is presented as higher taxes for the wealthiest of people.

Some inclusion of Socialism in the USA is said to be needed to make the New Green Deal work.

And it is no mere coincidence that Venezuela is categorized as being a socialist country, as we prepare to tear it down.

Europe already has health care for all, and we in the USA already have “socialistic” programs like Medicare, and government funded public schools, police departments and fire departments.

Transformation is expanding and accelerating.  In December 2020, at the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, we will find an open portal to the Age of Aquarius.

This is only a month or so past the Presidential Election in November 2020.

Much will change before then, in our world and in our personal lives.

This week there is the Mars/Uranus conjunction, then the next day Mars leaves Aries and enters Taurus, where it will stay till late March.

Mars in Taurus will make what has been opening up for us real, grounded, and solid. It brings the energy of manifestation.

Let the energies of liberation, truth telling, independence, and self-concern into your life strongly this week.  But stay aware of your relationships too.  Do not “throw the baby out with the bath water”.

Do your best to preserve healthy relationships. Instead of abandoning those relationships, try instead letting go of the old dynamics and patterns that have been harming your relationships.

We are ready now to go forward toward our new normal, having lost sight of the old normal. It has been difficult for many lately- being in this kind of purgatory or limbo.

But now energies are accelerating for real change and movement forward.  Hitch a ride.

See you next week,

Leo

New Moon in Aquarius and Astrology Forecast February 3-9

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on February 2, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast, we are still in Eclipse Season.   That ends at the New Moon in Aquarius on Monday February 4 at 4:04 PM EST.

But now as I write, I can certainly feel the soul of the darkening Moon.

We have been through a very powerful and challenging Eclipse Season; and now as we grieve for what we are letting go of,  we may also be unsure what is ahead of us now.

If you are having difficulty making decisions, or choosing the right path, or even knowing what direction to move toward, you have much company in our human family.

What is going on in the greater world is also quite confusing for many.  World events have been showing us that what used to be considered normal, is very elusive and difficult to grab onto anymore.

That “old normal” is leaving us, and that alone can get us feeling insecurities, sadness, and grief for a time period that is beginning to disappear in our life’s rear view mirror.

The Trump era is breaking down old reliable institutions, old ways of relating to other nations and cultures, and old agreements (like on Climate Change,  and nuclear weapon production ).

The stock market has become quite volatile and unpredictable.  The USA government is now in long term shutdown.  An old and important agreement with Iran has been discarded. We are apparently pulling out of old military stances in Syria and Afghanistan. The Presidential administration is in chaos and run by an obviously narcissistic and unpredictable President.

Our relationships with China and Russia are quite arguably worse than they have been recently.  Mass murders seem to happen much more than before.  The Arab and Muslim worlds are growing farther and farther apart from Western nations.

Fear is all around our collective energy fields, ready to be absorbed by anyone who wants to partake.

Yes we can be quite confused on what to do and where to go in our personal lives too, as they are a microcosm to the macrocosm or our greater world.

The Universe is getting us all prepared for our new world and its challenges, by helping us to release old patterns, old belief systems, old habits, old relationships or jobs that no longer resonate with our true and authentic self.

Our changing consciousness is the most important of all. Old programming and conditioning by culture, religion, family and corporate state, from days gone by, do not serve us now.

And planetary events, like at this last Eclipse Season, mean to speed up the process of growth and help us to transform our minds and hearts into the energies and intents of the Age of Aquarius.

But now right after the eclipses there is some unbalance, confusion, and fear to deal with. Many feel held back from jumping in. But a turning point nudges us forward this week.

The New Moon in Aquarius on the 4th of February is a boost forward for our lives.  

It would be good in the two or three days surrounding that new moon, to meditate and make strong intentions, in relationship with the Universe.

We may not know exactly where we are going, but we can trust the process, trust ourselves, and trust the Universe now.  We can do this for our personal lives, but also for the world now.

I do not believe we can avoid some really difficult days ahead in America and western civilization.  The Military/Industrial (economic) Complex that President Eisenhower warned would endanger our democracy, is making a prophet out of that President.

And so the Military and Economy will need to humble “themselves”,  be transformed, and lose Empire status.

Major conflict and major economic challenges are ahead, as is more culture war between differing American cultures, as happened in the Civil War 1860-1865.

The Middle East is a tinder box now, close to exploding.

Important planetary movements to the planets in the natal charts of the USA and Israel will trigger big events in those countries soon

In the USA natal chart , Pluto in Capricorn in its second house will see many powerful triggers to it over the next few years.

Pluto will experience its first ever Pluto Return in 2021-2022, while at almost the same time both Saturn and Jupiter will be making conjunction with that same natal USA Pluto.

The USA Pluto in its second house is representative of the Military/Industrial complex.

Uranus has been squaring the USA Pluto in 2017, 2018, 2019. Pluto returns to itself in 2021/22.  Jupiter and Saturn conjunct it in 2020-21.

So you can see how powerfully this will be- a big overhaul of the system, and a downgrade of the Empire.

And this is all part of the opening of a portal into the Age of Aquarius.

Add Jupiter conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius in December 2020, and we have the ingredients that will help us put our toes into the Age of Aquarius. That does not mean all will be perfectly Aquarian Age then, not at all.

But nevertheless, whatever darkness surrounds us then will have huge beams of light penetrating that darkness and lighting our way forward on the New Age Path.

This week has the Aquarius New Moon on February 4. That will get our mojo beginning to purr.

Then the themes of Aquarius will follow, so we will be “persuaded” to leave our heart’s desires to be seen as special and popular, and instead be pulled more toward our head’s intention to stay with idealistic notions of diverse but equal in value.  Making contribution to community or favorite group or organization may be “in the cards” for some of us.

Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius. It was discovered in 1781, around the time of two revolutions: USA and France.

These revolutions were motivated by desires to replace royalty with democracy and power to the people.

Uranus/Aquarius highly values individual freedom and liberation from that which chains us.

It is the anti-ego sign, seeing all as equals and seeing strength in community and groups.

Even though it is anti-ego, it highly values distinct individuality and uniqueness.

Aquarius also highly values social consciousness, and is very sensitive to culture and group thinking and action.

If a Leo and Aquarius both went shopping for a car, the Leo would tend to want the shiny car that made its heart sing and be a popular model.

Aquarius would want the car that got good mileage and was good for the environment and was from a dealership that was a co-op in community.

After this Aquarius New Moon, the lights go back on again and we strive to move forward, even if we do not totally know where we are going.

And with so many not feeling secure in the changing winds swirling all around, the message is to let go of needs to have absolute answers and direction.

There are coming events that will need to show up before we know what to do and where to go.

The New Moon in Aquarius will open the gates for events that are resulting from what shook up during Eclipse Season.

Be on your toes for change, as it is coming whether we are perfectly “in shape” for it or not.

After the Storms and Astrology Forecast January 27- February 2

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on January 27, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move into the 4th and final quarter of the lunar cycle that began on January 5 at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

This last quarter phase of the Moon begins on Sunday January 27 in Scorpio.   It signifies a winding down from the intensity of Eclipse Season,  a season that will effectively end on February 4 at the Aquarius New Moon.

For so many, this Eclipse Season has really shaken us out of our equilibrium and mental/emotional balance.

The “shaking up” puts us in a better position to be able to move with change and transformation

And the coming transformation will be immense, throwing us more fully into this New Chapter of our collective lives, on the way to an Age of Aquarius.

The “normal” that we were used to- no longer exists. A new normal has not been found yet.  Many are thus feeling an inner insecurity, and often when faced with making decisions cannot easily do so.

Look at the world we live in now.  The government had been shut down with both parties playing chicken with our lives.  Now a temporary opening of the government has begun, but it is rather tentative and weak.

And also during this Eclipse Season, it is getting more and more obvious that the Trump government is quite dysfunctional and on the highway to possible impeachment.

The USA government is showing signs of great decay, and though the stock market has been rising over the last few weeks, it will soon be travelling rapidly downward again, as it did last year.

The USA and world economy are going into slow-down movements and likely recession in 2019, which will eventually bring a revamped and transformed economy, hopefully one more fair to all.

The Cultural Divide has widened in America, and each side is quite angry and not seeing the value of the opposition’s viewpoint.

But there are many of us now who are seeing new ways, outside the boxes of black versus white, or yang versus yin or male versus female, so to speak.

This Eclipse Season has been showing me that really big changes are forthcoming soon.

The Military/Industrial Complex Empire is dying and is searching for new blood to drink to stay alive, maybe now in Venezuela where Western Governments are endorsing someone to be president who was not elected to be President of Venezuela.  Oh and by the way Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world.

And some version of economy that includes some forms of socialism are on the way to our collective lives.

And it is getting more and more likely to me that some grand UFO/extraterrestrial event will come to our planet in a big way soon.

The point I am making, even if not all these events happen, is that our world is ready for a huge transformation. 10 years from now, when one looks back at today, it will be hardly recognizable.

AI will be  big part of that new world, robots will doing many jobs humans do now, and that will be a large part of this new economy on the way.

I learned this week that World War I and World War II both came on the heels of vast technological world changes, and that will likely happen again. Israel and the Middle East will be the catalysts.

This passing Eclipse Season feels like a huge turning point in our personal and collective lives.

This New Chapter we are all in now, has been pushed fast forward during that Eclipse Season.

Under the surface of our world, in unseen frequencies, much has changed during this Eclipse Season.

Those in other realms are helping us clear the way. Though it may feel scary sometimes, we are getting ready.

And now as we move through the last quarter of our lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse on January 5, we can go through the rubble from the eclipse storms and try to make sense of all that is shifting in our lives, as we prepare for the New Moon in Aquarius on February 4.

At the end of this week, Mars in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn.

Expect the intensity level in our collective energy field and lives to increase with that aspect.  Powerful events are more likely than usual.

Then on Saturday February 2 is Imbolc, an annual sacred turning point. It is half way between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. It is what our conventional modern world calls Groundhog Day.

Imbolc was celebrated as a time of initiation, a time when one could be blessed on the way through a new life gateway.

It is time to sense the coming of Spring Equinox, only 6 or 7 weeks away.

The Chinese celebrate a New Year just after this Aquarius New Moon.  This coming year is the year of the Pig, an Earth Pig.

It is the last sign in that zodiac, so this coming year is a year of transition, saying goodbye to the last cycle and getting ready for the new cycle.

With Eclipse Season coming to a close this week, do not jump to any life conclusions. Let the process play out this week as we get ready for new beginnings at the Aquarius New Moon on February 5.

Events that are a direct result of what got shaken up during Eclipse Season will come out after the New Moon in Aquarius.

So much is unknown now, and we are at our best if we can respect the mystery of life now.  Best to let go of overly firm hands of control.

The ego will fight now to maintain control, but we are best yielding now to our “higher self” as it will leads us more gracefully forward.

Trust and Faith can greatly help our journey now. All is happening for a reason, all is in Divine Order.

Fear is our greatest enemy now. Love and Truth can lead our way if we so choose.

Enjoy the ride

Leo

Winter Solstice 2018 and Full Moon in Cancer and Astrology Forecast December 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on December 15, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we experience one of the four annual turning points into a new season: Winter Solstice.

Winter Solstice 2018 is December 21 at 5:23 PM EST.

Dark minutes of the day are at their greatest on Winter Solstice; then right afterwards light minutes begin to gain in strength.  It is not mere coincidence that the Christian religion has put Christmas close to this annual turning point.

The chosen day for Christ’s birth, which can be seen as the light of hope being birthed for humanity, fits so well with Winter Solstice.

At Winter Solstice dark, yin, inward energies are at their greatest.   There is a pull to honor contemplation, inner reflection, sadness, darker feelings, and compassion for those who suffer.

But in this darkness a light is born, hope is seen at the end of the tunnel of our despair.  Spring, the next season, is of course nature’s breath of fresh air and renewed light and hope.

Every year as we get closer and closer to the depths of Winter Solstice, it may seem somewhat of a contradiction that the Sun has been in uplifted, inspirational Sagittarius.

Sagittarius is the fire that keeps burning with faith as the days get darker in the Northern Hemisphere.

And this year Jupiter is also in Sagittarius as we enter Winter Solstice. This adds a feeling of expanding joy and upliftment even as dark days get darker.

The holiday season is part of the Sagittarius joy and upliftment, and many use this holiday spirit to distract them from deeper feelings.

Holding both Sagittarius joy and Winter Solstice sadness will test us this week.

Some get very depressed at the holidays, and these darker days contribute to these feelings.

Some people get rather manic with holiday preparation and anticipation.

Both are extremes at this time of year. To hold the joy and happiness while also holding a feeling of sadness, nostalgia, or connection with the “down” feelings of life is the best one can do at this time.

Right on the Winter Solstice of December 21, the Sun every year moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn.

Capricorn is “ruled”  by the planet Saturn, and Saturn is gravity which obviously is a pull downward.

But it is basically not a pull down into feelings;  instead it is a pull down into facing what one needs to do, what obligations need to be met, what responsibilities need to be tended, what accomplishments need to be met, what goals need to be set.

Capricorn is about organizing, discipline, boundary setting, limits, time constraints, rules and regulations.

Its goals are building, especially building success, outer world recognition and respect, and career advancement.

Interestingly this year, the day after the Winter Solstice passage of Sun into Capricorn brings us into a Full Moon in Cancer.

Since Full Moons always have the Sun exactly opposite the Moon, this Full Moon has the Sun at one degree of Capricorn and the Moon at 1 degree of Cancer.

The Full Moon is on December 22 at 12:49 PM EST.

So the recently entered Sun in Capricorn meets the Moon in Cancer in opposition.

And the ruling “planet” of Cancer is the Moon. So the Moon swoons in Cancer, making it stronger than ever.

In many ways this Full Moon shows us a traditional Father archetype(Capricorn) versus a traditional Mother archetype (Cancer).

This Cancer Mother is more unconditional, without strict boundaries or rules. It is rather permissive, nurturing and emotionally safe. It also can hover over in its protectiveness, and resist boundaries between Mom and child, all blurring together.

The Capricorn Father is rather stern and a task master, expecting one to take responsibility for oneself, and to follow a strict regimen of discipline and accomplishment.

I am sure you can see how these archetypes can translate into politically conservative (Capricorn) and liberal (Cancer).

And we all know how polarized these parties are from one another now in America.

So watch this all play out in the world now between Democrats and Republicans, potentially stretching the budget or taking the government down.

And the stock market and economy are in trouble now too.

And since we are now in a new Eclipse Season, with the first actual eclipse on January 5, 2019; these government and economic issues will be intensified and likely in crisis mode.

But remember that the light of hope from the turning of the Winter Solstice will be shining, promising a new day, a new age coming.

Jupiter in Sagittarius, which will continue into December 2019, brings expansion into more progressive causes, more inspiration, broader perspectives and higher meaning.

As you watch the old world crumble in the hands of the Trump administration and Washington DC Corporate Establishment, keep your eye on what is being born at the same time.

Just as in the transformation of a personal life, old beliefs and old ways of living die.  And sometimes that happens with the breakup of a relationship, a death, the ending of a job or career, a deep realization of what no longer holds our heart, feelings of despair and even dark nights of the soul.

And through it all there are new beginnings, renewed inspiration, a new sense of purpose, better relationships, a sense of more love in one’s life, and a feeling of being more true to the true nature of who you are.

There is the feeling of being part of a global community of people who are creating a new and better world.

As we move deeper and more intensely into the challenging transition into an Age of Aquarius,  keep your focus on the bigger picture.

Know all is happening meaningfully, and that the death of an old era and age can be quite difficult at times.

Release the old ways and old beliefs inside your self, which makes space for new light and love to enter your heart, soul, body, and mind.

That light and love will help you create the life that is best for you, in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Communicating and Understanding and Astrology Forecast November 18-24

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week showed us Venus passing the Retrograde baton to Mercury.  Mercury is now Retrograde until December 6, as Venus has gone back Direct.

What do Mercury and Venus have in common?  They are both about relating.

Mercury is communication, mostly mental and fast moving.  Venus is about relating, mostly from the heart.

Venus is also more indicative of the state of one’s relationships, romantic or otherwise.

Mercury is more indicative of thinking and analyzing, gaining information, and sharing the thoughts and information with others.

So with Venus going back Direct again now, we are beginning to move out of having our life spotlight on relationship issues, relationship patterns, relationship changes and healing.

Venus will not be back to where it started its Retrograde movement (10 degrees Scorpio) until mid December; so we still will need to repair, heal, find closure, or find some kind of resolution to relationships.

Last Friday Venus was going Direct on the same day as Mercury went Retrograde.  For many, the time surrounding those planetary movements were confusing,  disorienting, or difficult to understand.

Mercury will stay Retrograde until it goes back Direct on December 6, the same day as the New Moon in Sagittarius.

Remember that in the bigger picture we are moving out of an Old Chapter of our lives and into a New Chapter of our lives- on the way toward the Age of Aquarius.

With Mercury now Retrograde, we do not move forward right now. We ponder, reflect, and process.

We are best now if we do not try hard to find answers, do not jump to conclusions, do not hold onto or push rigid agendas.

With some people we are now in the process of saying goodbye, whether we consciously are aware of that or not.

With others we are in the process of seeing if it is possible to change old patterns and keep the relationship.

And in some cases we are wanting to know if a new relationship can be a part of our lives now.

As you look at the current state of relationships in the American political world,  the federal government is playing musical chairs with its employees. I have never before witnessed so much turnover in a president’s White House or Cabinet.

Mercury Retrograde promises more confusion and turnover in government, even while we still wait to see voting results from the recent Election Day.

So much is shifting and changing in our world, both collectively and personally.  It often seems like a replay of the revolutionary ’60s and ’70s, even including the comparisons between Presidents Nixon and Trump.

Nixon was the personification of what revolutionaries were fighting against.  To many, Trump now is the face of what is wrong in America.

One of the big differences between then and now is in how much more entrenched many are in the mud of our programmed world.

Yet the recent elections show a strong tide just beginning to form of people who believe we can change the world for the better.

Nixon was disgraced and left the presidency, the war in Viet Nam ended, rights for women and blacks had gotten so much stronger than before.  The world was truly beginning to transform.

Then there was a break in the revolution and evolution in the ’80s as Ronald Reagan’s administration sought to bring the country back to making “America Great again”.

And the revolution temporarily died as many people seemingly “sold out” and/or went to sleep. We were at that time likely meant to slow down and consolidate, before moving forward again.

Now over the last several years, the urge for change, transformation, revolution and evolution has picked up steam again.

And just like the ’60s and ’70s, there is a wall being built to stop the change.  Trump is the face on that wall for many.

And now as we move past 2018 soon, people are passionate about breaking down that wall.

And now there is much more likelihood  than in the ’60s, of everything crashing down in order to make space for this New Age to enter.

This wall coming down is like drawing the Tower Card of Tarot.  As it is coming down, some are feeling panic; others are feeling liberated from a confining world paradigm.

Many people will be “taking up arms” and picking sides for battle.  I suppose some are meant to do just that.

As the wall gets more cracks and holes in it from the Transformation getting more powerful, those in power will try to dominate and bully to “keep the order”.

And that could get ugly, just as it was when Jim Acosta, the newsman, was having his access to the White House taken away.

It has been subsequently given back to him by court order, but that kind of issue will get more and more difficult in coming months: to dominate those who disagree with you.

The old system will feel the need to dominate and control the citizens, forsaking the laws and principles of this country and its constitution.

Order will then be threatened by Chaos, and the wall will come down.

After Mercury goes Direct and there is a New Moon in Sagittarius on December 6, we will be in the early moments of the next Eclipse Season, which shows its first of two eclipses on January 5: a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn conjunct both Saturn and Pluto. 

And the walls came tumbling down.  Revolutionary Uranus will be changing from Retrograde to Direct on the same day.

But for now we are feeling our way through what needs to be let go and what stays. We are reflecting on our life priorities, on what gives our life meaning and where is our sense of direction and purpose now.

This week has the waxing Moon moving up toward a Full Moon in Gemini, as the Sun also moves into Sagittarius on Thursday/Friday November 22/23.

This Full Moon is exact on November 23 at 12:39 AM EST. Making this full moon more important and meaningful is the result of Jupiter being closely conjunct the Sun in Sagittarius and opposite that Moon in Gemini.

Making it even more meaningful is the fact that Mars in Pisces will be square to that Full Moon, creating a mutable T-Square.  This is a strongly influential Full Moon signature.

Complicating matters more is that Neptune’s fog will appear as Neptune moves from Retrograde to Direct on the 24th.

And of course Mercury is now and will be then Retrograde.

Sharing information and wanting to find answers are themes for this Full Moon. Communication through talking, texting, and email will be more important then usual.

There may be confusion in understanding what is being said or what is going on.  For some it will be a mental shit show, for others it may feel more mystical and otherworldly.

It has been getting more and more challenging to know what is fake news or fake information or fake pictures and stories.

As we come up on this complicated full moon with Mercury Retrograde, resist the temptation to figure it all out, or to fix it, or make it happen.

The more we push the river to flow faster, the more frustrated we will be. The more we jump to conclusions, the more we will get out of balance.

There is much emphasis on communication this week.  But it may be quite difficult to understand and make sense of everything. Too much expectation will bring too much disappointment now.

Trust and have faith in the Universe and yourself, that all is moving as it should, and that answers and meaning will appear at just the right time.

Till next week,

Leo

As Above, So Below and Astrology Forecast September 23-29

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we enter the annual portal into Autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere.

 The Autumn Equinox is on Saturday September 22 at 9:54 PM EDT.  As always, that means that the Sun moves into Libra at that Equinox moment.  The Sun stays in Libra for 30 days.

Two days later, on September 24, the Moon catches up to the Sun from its opposite position.  So the Moon in Aries opposes the Sun in Libra to form a Full Moon at 10:52 PM EDT.

Autumn Equinox is a time when light and dark minutes are equal.  That means yin and yang, “male” and “female” are also equal.

Then right after that Autumn Equinox moment of equality- dark, yin, “female” energy starts growing in relationship to the dimming energies of light, yang, and “male”.

At Winter Solstice dark is at its zenith.  Then at Spring Equinox we have equality again, but with light, yang energies beginning to increase.

Autumn Equinox symbolizes a time of year when we begin to know that darker, colder days are coming.  It is a time when personal striving and ambition begin to feel less important than relationships and social matters.

On a deep level, mortality can be felt as more real as darkness begins to grow.  We seek companionship to help us through the night.

And Libra brings us the Goddess of Relationship- Venus, which is the “ruling” planet of Libra.

Libra finds relationship and relating as more important than individual needs for independence and alone-time.

Libra is the scale of balance, always sensitive to equality and fairness as a result.

Libra is the master of diplomacy and mediation, able to see both sides of an issue.  As such it can have a really difficult time making decisions. Its ability to balance contributes to its talent at finding symmetry, which aids in its talent to balance colors, which aids its talent at creating beauty.

At the Full Moon in Aries two days later on the 24th, the Sun in Libra seeks relationship and at its best is very into the “other” person.

But the Full Moon has the Moon in Aries, and Aries seeks independence, being true to self, and taking care of personal needs and desires.

So at this Full Moon in Libra/Aries, it may be very important to balance doing what one wants to do for oneself,  with doing what someone else wants or what is best for the relationship.

Venus rules Libra and Mars rules Aries, so peace or war, connection or conflict may be decided personally and globally around the time of the full moon.

Saturn is also in aspect to this Full Moon, making close square to both Sun in Libra and Moon in Aries.

So if peace or war- or Female way  or Male way- cannot be decided, there will be a hand of fate or time that comes into play to make the decision.

Look at the Kavanaugh/Ford congressional proceedings to be reflective of these planetary movements.

Also this week Pluto is slowing down in order to go from Retrograde to Direct on Sunday the 30th of September.

That means that especially toward the end of this week intensity increases, passions are stirred, power struggles are more likely, and energies for transformation are stronger.

We are solidly beyond Summer Eclipse Season now, yet we are still in waiting for events that are developing as a result of that Eclipse Season.  Watch Syria/Middle East, Korea, and China trade to come front and center this Autumn.

Saturn makes its last pass of the USA natal Venus and Jupiter this Autumn. Mars and Jupiter make an important conjunction and square to the USA natal Moon this Autumn too. Important shifts for America are happening.

Saturn made its first pass to the USA Venus and Jupiter in January/February when Winter Eclipse Season was happening. The stock market reached a new high before falling dramatically then.

And last week the market reached a new high, higher than that previous high last January.   Another Eclipse Season has passed, and now Saturn goes back to where it was back in January/February.

Chances for a dramatic market drop are great again this Autumn.

For your personal life, remember we have entered a New Chapter of our lives.

Most have not fully adapted to this New Chapter yet.  There is still a purging of the old stories, traumas, and energy patterns from the Old Chapter.  There is still a “not-knowing” of what this New Chapter is all about.

We are caught between worlds, so to speak, no longer a part of the past, but not yet fully connected to our new path.

So living in the moment is more important than ever, allowing the processes of nature, your higher self, and the Universe to play out.

This makes trust and faith especially important now.

And horrific past personal events can make having trust and faith very challenging.

Keep in mind that there is a “higher/deeper Source” that is always there in the best interest of your soul and spirit.

It is true that surrendering to that Source takes ultimate ego control away from you.  But ego control keeps you stuck when it is time to grow and change.

Trust that Source and watch your life gain wings to fly through this transition time in your life.

Allow the Sun to go down now at the Sunset time of Autumn Equinox this week. Surrender to Nature and allow your soul to go down and yin-ward with it.

All is in Divine order. It our fears that see differently. The Earth and Heavens are connected and working together.  It is our fears that see differently.

“As Above/So Below” is metaphysical truth and Astrology is its translator.

Till next week,

Leo

Autumn Equinox and Astrology Forecast September 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

2018 Summer Eclipse Season has ended, and late this week Summer itself will end.

As the curtain comes down on the summer of 2018, we find ourselves in a personal New Chapter of our lives.  

That New Chapter is much more than the ending and beginning of nature’s seasons.

It is truly about entering a new and important era of our personal lives.

And it is truly about entering a new and important era of our collective life, both our global and American lives.

Most important in this new era is that this new era has at its core  the values you believe in.

Then after you have put your heart values and mental principles as your guiding light in this New Chapter, you have automatically built the foundation for the New Chapter you are entering and building.

Have you totally accepted this new era of your life?  Do you recognize you are truly in a new era or chapter of your life?

I know everything is feeling different inside for many.  The usual connections inside each of us are shifting.  The old normal inside us is gone.

And of course our personal lives are the micro to the macro of our greater world and Universe.

And as the wheels of the Universe turn into new territory, so too are we personally turning into new territory.

And as the societies of America and the world change, as they are beginning to do rather drastically, each of our souls is also being called to make deep transformational change.

It is obvious that the United States is slowly leaving its soul, and forgetting about the lofty principles it was founded on.

So deep transformation into an Age of Aquarius requires each of us individually and all of us collectively to make sure we are living by these standards.

Our “better angels” can guide us forward through this new terrain now.

Our American lives are so in the middle of deep transformation.  And the culture wars in the United States are bringing out the worst in people, on both sides.

People will lie and cheat to make sure their chosen agenda will win. To them the end justifies the means.  Do you believe that?

Hitler believed that exterminating those who did not fit his paradigm for how the new human should be and look like was OK to do.

“Kill or be killed” is how our politicians  are thinking and acting now.  The bloody fight, over who the next Supreme Court Justice will be,  is way over the top.

We need to return to our deeper values and deeper sense of what is right and wrong now.

The picture is much bigger and deeper then judges or political parties or religions.

Yes we need to stand up for what we believe, but we do not need to demonize and crush those who believe differently.  Trust me, those people you are demonizing also demonize you.  That alone should tell us something important. They believe what you stand for is evil and wrong, as you believe about them and their values.

We are on the verge of total war between American cultures, and total war between countries too.  And demonizing is what governments tend to do before attacking. It was Saddam Hussein, then Gadafi,  then Kim Jong Un, and now Bashar Assad president of Syria. And it will keep going after others whose countries we want to bring into our vision of how a country or culture or person should be.

This is how religions often act too. Each one believes it has found “The Way”. and their god is the true god.

Respecting each other’s differences is so Age of Aquarius, and that attitude shows the best of being Aquarius.

Now Trump is on the verge of real action from people who want to get rid of him as president.

And of course he is not a great example of being American, human, or a man.

Nevertheless, our very deep problems in America will not be eliminated if Trump leaves office. The Pence administration might make the culture wars exacerbate even more.

Trump’s presence has brought these culture wars for the soul of America come out in the light for all to see.

But the war will still be alive until we the people realize that all these people, no matter what agenda they carry, are Americans, and even more importantly Humans.

The Middle East is really on the edge of great conflict now, so let us hope leaders will pull back from that edge.

This week we are in the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Virgo New Moon on September 9.  So energies are waxing in the lunar cycle, allowing us to feel we are moving forward in its regard.

But the solar cycle is about to show us an important turning point in the year, a turning point that points us to more yin or dark energies.

That solar cycle take us to the Autumn Equinox, which begins the time of Sun in Libra.

Autumn Equinox is on Saturday September 22 at 9:54 PM EDT.

Light and dark, yin and yang, male and female are equal at the Autumn Equinox.  Yet right after that moment, darker, more yin and female energies begin to expand their presence.

Metaphorically Autumn Equinox is like a sunset time of day,  in between light and dark.

The Sun’s yearly voyage through Libra begins at the Autumn Equinox also.

Most aptly with the Autumn Equinox, Libra is the scales of balance, scales of justice too.

Libra is most drawn to relationship, the “best” ways of being social or being in a society.

It seeks all to be lovely and fair, and it can be a great mediator or diplomat.

Is is usually very accommodating of others, sometimes to a fault as it often loses its Self in the process.

Libra really cares about things being fair or just, and about issues working for everyone, not just one person.  Libra is quite able to make everything symmetrical and color coordinated and pretty too. It likes things to be pleasant and peaceful.

So as this coming week comes to an end at the Autumn Equinox, it is a time to begin to shift away from more self centered attitudes and ways of being.

Instead it is time to listen better to others, to think of social values, to be more peaceful and ready to negotiate or compromise.

Perhaps out in the world, in America, in the Middle East, and elsewhere, there will be attempts to work harder to make peace and harmony between people.

There could be some surprises or shocks coming early to mid week, as Mars in Aquarius squares Uranus late Tuesday.

That is meant to be some kind of wake up call that shows how to think and move “outside the box”.  That wake up call may tend to show new ways to solve old problems.

Mars/Uranus contacts also can show rebellious behavior, and radical action.  World events that shake things up and get us thinking differently than we are used to are more likely than usual.

Till next week

Leo
