Moving Through the Retrogrades and Astrology Forecast April 2-8

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

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we moved forward after the Aries New Moon.  That New Moon signaled to us the reality that it is time to move on.

The old era or chapter of our lives wants to be in our life’s rear view mirror.  On a deep energetic level we have moved on and moved forward.

But for some there are still issues to be healed or resolved.

And with Venus still Retrograde, the direction of certain of our relationships may not be totally clear yet.

And to add some more confusion, next week Sunday April 8 Mercury will join Venus in Retrograde.

Retrograde means things we need to pause before we can know what to believe or what to do.   During Retrograde, so many “re’s” are activated:  Re-flect, re-wind, re-turn, re-negotiate, re-do, etc.

So with both planets going retro, we will have much more ability to be reflective and to rewind into our past.

What makes it all complicated is that the New Moon in Aries, as we stated, is driving us to move on and move forward.

And energetically it has happened. In many ways we have gone over the hump to the other side.  No more fence sitting.

But we still need more clarity and direction around some issues before we are ready to completely move forward into this new chapter of our lives.

Venus retrograde suggests we may have relationship issues to heal or be resolved or at least to be seriously recognized as real and needing work.  

Venus is not only about relationships but also about heart values,  security values, body issues, and real estate issues.

Venus is the ruling planet for both Libra and Taurus.  So any of those Venus issues can be in the spotlight of our lives now.    Going back in our minds to old ways of relating to security or body issues may also be happening for us during Venus Retrograde.

For women Venus Retrograde can also be about being a woman and what kind of woman one wants to be.  In its current retrograde pattern, Venus began the retrograde in Aries, suggesting needs to be empowered, true to self, and assertive as a woman.

Men may be experiencing their closest female mates as aserting their power more now. And their own “inner female” may need to be activated now.

Venus Retrograde moves into Pisces late on Sunday April 2, so issues around being giving, being other worldly, being surrendered and more mystical take hold.

So balancing the giving surrendered urge (Pisces) with the urge to be emboldened and empowered (Aries) may be challenging as a result of these planetary movements.

After April 15, when Venus goes back direct again, these issues should get more clarity and be ready to move forward with the other parts of us.

Relationships and communication are needing the most attention during the retrograde periods.

So Venus and Mercury will both be retrograde from April 8- 15.   There may be more confusion than usual around thinking, relating, and communicating then.

There will be more clarity after April 15 when Venus goes direct, then even more clarity aftter Mercury goes back Direct on May 3.

So we pause in some ways from totally moving forward till after that time.

So as we nevertheless continue to move forward now,  since the Aries New Moon, we actually pick up some speed as we go into the second quarter of the lunar cycle this coming week.

We continue moving forward in the waxing half of the Aries New Moon lunar cycle until April 10 at the Full Moon in Libra. Then the waning downward half of the cycle takes over.

So this week we continue moving forward in our new chapter, even while we still heal and resolve some issues during retrograde time.

And this week also brings Saturn going Retrograde on April 5/6.  When Saturn slows down to stop and turn retrograde, its meaning and energy get more priority in our lives.

Saturn is a contracting and limiting energy.  It gets us to stop and be more grounded, to wait and be more cautious, to set goals, to discipline, plan, and accomplish.

It also gets us to have more boundaries, to say no, to take responsibility, to do what we must do.

And it also rules endings and commitments too. Remember Saturn is about what we are limited in doing. Both endings and commitments give strict limits.

So this week is a good week to face up to what is real for you now.  Reality needs to be recognized and honored.  Acceptance is a key to this week.

Though some Venus and Mercury relationship and security issues of many kinds may need to be worked out, in most ways the “writing is on the walls” for what is real for you now.

And the Trump administration is real now in all our lives. That is not going to change any time soon.

Where we still have options is in how we relate to that reality.  How do we want to respond to that reality?  What values will we fight for as a result of that reality.

How will we handle our security issues and our issues of empowerment and self assertion?

How does this new reality affect our relationships? I have seen some families and friendships break apart because of the differences in political opinions.

Do we respect those who disagree with us enough to keep the glue of that relationship.

Or is the difference in core values too much to bridge to keep the relationship connected?

So you can see how a person can know they are in a new era of life, but still have some relationship issues to work out.

All people have personality or character traits that are diffcult for their partner.  So then we need to weigh which ones can be lived with and which ones cannot easily be tolerated.

And of course we need to dig deep inside to see if there is enough love to be able to live with someone who has these traits that are difficult to accept.

And yet some traits cannot be tolerated no matter how much love there is, no? How about physical or verbal abuse, or addiction? Should anyone put up with those traits even when  “in love”?

When we get into mid summer 2017, at the next Eclipse Season, which will be more powerful than the last, we will need many of our relationship and security issues to be resolved enough to be able to receive the awakening light, love and truth wanting to come through into our hearts and minds.

So now we clear up the blocks in our minds (Mercury) and hearts (Venus) during their retrograde periods, so we can better handle and let in those gifts later.

Till next week,

Leo

Ready or Not and Astrology Forecast March 26- April 1

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 25, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Time to start up the engines of our lives, as a New Moon in Aries motivates us to get moving.

It has always seemed to me to be a strange time for the New Year,  on January 1 when the Sun is in Capricorn.   It seems to me that man made reality is out of touch with “nature”.  Actually not very surprising, is it?

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and Saturn is about “what one is supposed to do” more than about what comes naturally.   Capricorn is about rules, self discipline, material accomplishment, responsibility, and authority.

Aries time of year is much more naturally about fresh new beginnings, of taking action, of moving forward, and initiating.  To me that feels much more like New Year.

Spring Equinox is the beginning of Sun in Aries, but the New Moon in Aries (when the Moon catches up to the Sun in Aries) seems like the most powerful time energetically for New Year.

New Moon in Aries 2017 is Monday March 27 at 10:57 PM EDT.  So on Tuesday the 28th we can start the ignition for our lives this year.

Pisces time of year, a time of internal psychological and spiritual movement, is passing.  Grief has been really strong for many people lately and that is aligned with the energy of Pisces.

So it is time to finish up the process of releasing the past, for now, and instead we can start to move forward with more conscious intention.

This Aries New Moon also effectively ends Eclipse Season.  So the events that will be coming soon will be resulting from what shook up during Eclipse Season, which goes back to late January.

World events that have been brewing and boiling will be ready soon to erupt into our lives.

The Trump administration, along with many nationalistic movements in the world, are setting things up in a way similar to before the start of World War II.

Mussolini, Franco, and Hitler represented this nationalism and the power of individual leaders over their citizens.

The United States in its beginning was a healthy reaction to a world of Kings and Queens, dictators, and abuse of power.

Now with the Trump administration, there is a movement toward more power for the president and the executive branch of the goverment. Other countries are moving in that direction also.

Power of the people is being threatened as a result, and it is time for the people to speak even louder, and now also to act.

Our country’s core values are at stake, and the current self assuming King will need to be somehow counteracted or overthrown.

Usually the way that the King gets more power is through a crisis like war or terrorism or economic downturn, when people are so afraid that they want “daddy” to make them feel safe and secure.

This time when the crises hit, and they will, we the people must take responsibility for our country and world- not turn it over to the “royalty” or saviors.

Saviors are part of the Pisces Age, and we are moving fast toward group action in an Age of Aquarius.

No longer can we consider our leaders as Gods, royalty , or saviors.

We  are the ones we are looking for to heal our Earth and human family, not the “special ones” or “privileged ones”.

So yes we can expect major world crises to shake things up and open up the portals to new ways and new consciousness.

That means more and more people will be awakened, and those already awakened will take more responsibility for our world and human family.

The old traditional ways no longer work right, and we cannot keep trying to revive them so we can bring the world back to how it used to be. “Used to be” is dead and gone.

We are ready to create the new world, and many people are already doing that in their personal lives and consciousness.

And with each transformational jolt we receive, the energy to create this new world in both our personal and collective lives increases.

And August this year will be a big turning point for us, as there are 2 powerful eclipses, especially the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21. That one will be the first since 1918 to travel over the whole of the United States .  99 years ago that happened.

So let go of how you wanted the changes to happen.  We need to deal with what has really happened.

We can now stop crying and instead get started again moving forward on our authentic soul path. The aligned connection to our true self and the Universe is what we need as a foundation for our life and our contribution to our world.

Fear is your only enemy now, as it is debilitating and if held to for long leads to depression, hatreds, disconnections, and very bad choices.

So this week, let’s get back up.

There is a strong New Moon in Aries late on the 27th, then a powerful Jupiter square Pluto mid week.

That Jupiter square Pluto triggers the Cardinal T-Square that keeps staying with us. Seven of our 10 planets will then be in Cardinal signs, which means important new starts.

The cardinal signs, which represent the beginning sign of each season, also quite arguably bring out the most important parts of our lives.

Aries is being true to self and personal survival; Cancer is home, family, and inner values; Libra is relationships and social consciousness; and Capricorn is outer values and accomplishment in the world. 

All these integral parts of what it means to be alive are being challenged to grow and evolve in our lives.

This week allow the new energies to rouse you out of your sleepiness or out of your bubble of protection.

Take the ride.

Till next week,

Leo

Relationship Balancing and Astrology Forecast March 5-11

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 4, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last weekend we passed through a powerful Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces, while at the same time experiencing a “breaking things open” aspect: Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries.

As Jupiter in Libra was exactly opposite that conjunction, relationship issues come more strongly into our awareness.   And the Cardinal T-square of Uranus, Pluto, and Jupiter was triggered in the process, motivating Transformation in the world and in our personal lives.

We are truly 100% over the hump and now into a New Chapter of our lives, collectively and personally.

Collectively, the presidential election in the USA was the first signpost showing us a new path we are taking.  Eclipse Season this winter of 2017 has been bringing waves of change that are sweeping us faster forward on our journey.

As we look out into the greater world we can see many great challenges ahead.   There are two very different USA cultures that are clashing quite hatefully with one another.

Neither represents by itself what we need to move toward on our journey into the Age of Aquarius.

“Conservative” and “liberal”, or in reality all opposites, will need to find a way to join in circular unity, for the greater good of the community, in order to have a healthy and whole human condition in the Age of Aquarius.

And we are a long way from that condition.  And this is not just in the USA.  All over the world a new paradigm must be realized.  That new paradigm is about all the distinct parts of a whole being recognized and honored. All the opposites are valued in their intrinsic nature: male/female, yin/yang, dark/light, etc.

And in so doing we are building a Diversity within Unity world.

That means that even in our personal relationships we need to move beyond the idea that one person’s way is superior to someone else’s way, that someone is inherently better than someone else in value.

We will disagree of course, but respecting  the other person and their viewpoint is important. If you cannot do that, then that relationship is not one you should be in.

And now we get help with relationship issues as Venus is now Retrograde, and will stay that way until April 15 when it goes back Direct.

Yes that means that relationships and heart matters will be in the spotlight of your life, and you can expect some reflection on how relationships were in your past.

You may have strong memories of those people who used to have importance in your life,  and those memories may come from waking thoughts and feelings about people, but also may come through dreams and “in the flesh” appearances.

You may also have strong memories of how current relationships used to be back in the day.

And you will be working on relationhip issues more than usual.

But there are other parts to this Venus Retrograde.  Venus is a strong symbol for the feminine principle, and in Aries the feminine is bold, forceful, and stands up strong and brave for what it believes.

Athena is an archetypal Goddess who is very Aries in nature.  She is a warrioress, a woman born from the head of Zeus, and the head is the part of the body that Aries “rules”.

Venus in Aries does not bow down to anyone, and now in our world it seems like women are being called upon to assert themselves more and to not take abuse or “second class citizen” treatment.

Degrading of the Feminine is most prevalent in other cultures where women cannot attend school or vote or drive a car, or are sold into sex.

And even in America, women are often not yet paid equally for doing the same jobs as men, and they are also often not treated as equal in value to men.

But keep in mind that many women have bought into the old paradigm too, so the transformation of belief systems and values is for all.

Instead of putting blame on one gender or another, it is important to realize that we all “signed” onto a paradigm contract that now needs to be torn up and a new one realized.

In the old paradigm, so-called male values have been more highly honored in cultures all around the world.

The building of big militaries, the ambition to get rich, the “dog eat dog” mentality is of great importance in most cultures of this world.

“Survival of the fittest” mentality has dysfunctionally grown into power abuses, domination, war, and “us versus them” belief systems.

There is arguably not enough empathy, compassion, or sense of connection in our collective consciousness and cultural models.

True spiritual values that are not mainly based on rules and commandments and superiority are not valued enough either.

There is fighting or going to war for one’s God that is happening in many parts of this world too.

Being in survival and outer directed takes up so much energy in our world.

And the greatest of all “feminine” values, Love is sadly lacking in so much of life.

So it is time to reflect on and act on bringing the Feminine values to a stronger place in our cultures and hearts now.

And Venus in Aries represents the power of the Feminine and standing up tall for Feminine values.

All of us, male and female need to incorporate more love and care and connection into our lives now.

The proliferation of nuclear weapons, bombs, pornography and electronic devices show us the lesser priority shown for  love, intimacy and true deep connection in our world and daily lives.

This week after the big Solar Eclipse New Moon, we are led up to a Full Moon in Virgo on Sunday March 12.  We will look at that more closely next week.

So we are now still moving through Eclipse Season and will be until March 27 at the New Moon in Aries.

So now we process what has been happening this Eclipse Season, keep our eye on the New Chapter and what it is unfolding into. And we keep releasing that which was part of that old chapter that we will not be taking with us going forward.

With Venus being retrograde in Aries till April 15, in the process of improving our relationships, we also will need to strike better balance between independence and being true to oneself on the one hand, with being in relaionship and united on the other hand.

Doing so brings us more into Diversity within Unity in our own lives, as it is important to be true to our authentic self while also being unified in relationship.

Neither person should sacrifice their integrity of being in order to make a relationship work.

Till next week

Leo

In the Middle of Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast Februay 12-18.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on February 11, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we are in between two eclipses.   The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo has passed, and the stronger Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces will not be here until February 26.

It will be stronger in part because Mars in Aries will be square Pluto just before it is conjunct Uranus in Aries on the 26th.

These Mars movements will trigger the powerful Cardinal T-Square of Jupiter in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries. That will accelerate the changes, the revolution and evolution of our consciousness and lives.

This week, though intensity should remain strong as it is part of  Eclipse Season, there will be a gradual “coming down” from the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon last week.

The issues that were brought up for you around the eclipse last week, will be ripe for processing and transforming.

Then at the Solar Eclipse New Moon on the 26th there will be a thrust forward with more action and even more intensity.

For now in your consciousness, do your best to not make absolute conclusions or rigid opinions.

Issues and ideas will unfold and be changeable now, and though one may want the security of having a set agenda, it is best to surrender to the greater energies during this Eclipse Season.

In the greater world, this Eclipse Season has brought on strong counteractions to the Trump administration’s agenda.  For instance, the courts have denied him the ability to stop the flow of immigrants into the country.

You can know for sure that this presidential administration will continue to face enormous backlash against its policies and actions.

We can now see how easy it will be for traditional and long set USA policies and protocols to fall away and in some instances crash.

The election of Trump showed us that the process of transformation into an Age Of Aquarius will not be graceful.

The United States will have many breakdowns of old ways, both good and bad, while at the same time trying to recapture the principles and values that formed America in its beginnings.

Europe will also be trying to find its identity during the next few years, and the turn to nationalism there and in America is part of that process.

Remember in the bigger picture we are moving into an age of Equality and Diversity within Unity, so anything that develops that appears to be going in an opposite direction is temporary and just part of the process.

Attempts to go back to old ways of Super Powers and exclusiveness are on the way out.  These attempts to go back to those old ways will be short lived and on a deeper level part of reintegrating what was good about the past that has been “thrown out with the bath water”.

Those original American principles of the Constitution and Bill of Rights have been eroding through the years, and they are needing to be found again for the rebirth part of its transformation into an Age of Aquarius.

On a personal level we are all being challenged to stay on our path, keeping and even firming up our own values.

This new administration is a part of the Universe’s challenge to us to not let fear and hatred take us off course.

If we are now afraid and feel hopeless or victimized and keeping our hatred alive; we are moving into the same mind frame as those we are hating and feeling powerless to.

We can now deepen our connections to Source and the Universe, strengthen our commitment to the world we envision, and be a part of a growing movement of revolution.

Just as our ancestors started a revolution from the grip of a King’s’ authority, so now can we do the same in our own way.

Keep your view of the bigger picture, strengthen your resolve for transformational change, and deepen your spiritual connection. Concentrate on those things and you will stay out of a personal inner hell.

This week as we move “down” from last week’s Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, we begin to get ready for the more powerful eclipse on February 26.

On Thursday February 16 the Moon goes into Scorpio for a few days, to begin a process of going deeper into your soul, your emotions and feelings, and your inner spiritual depths.

On Saturday February 18, while the Moon is still in Scorpio, the Sun will begin its annual journey through Pisces.

Scorpio and Pisces are both deep water signs, so you will be prompted to go inside yourself more.

Later that same day as the Moon moves into Sagittarius it will create the 4th quarter Moon, which begins the last quarter of the lunar cycle.

That 4th quarter beginning will open up the way to a need to finish things up in preparation for the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

What parts of your current life need to change now?

Is it your attitudes and beliefs?  Is it the patterns of your relationships?  Is there a need to change your home or homelife?  Do you feel good about fulfilling your sense of purpose?

Just like in the 60’s and 70’s, all parts of one’s life may be challenged to change.

Back then as now, if our relationships feel empty, without soul and spirit, they will need to change or be ended.

If we do not feel heart connection to our jobs or place where we live, we may need to make changes.

You will know when and if it is time to make the changes, as life and the Universe will bring you the events or inner stirrings that show you the way.

You will not need to contrive the changes or “push the river” t0 move forward before it is time.

Eclipse Seasons often bring the events or inner stirrings for change, but it usually does not mean change comes all at once.

If the events or inner promtings come to you it is best to pay heed, as it is better to initiate change than have it thrown at us. Yet sometimes it is “fated” to come to us when we least expect it.

The more connected we each are to our inner light the better, and that is strengthened with an inner anchor inside.

Till next week,

Leo

Land of the Free and Astrology Forecast February 5-11.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is a very meaningful week as we move through our first of two eclipses this month.

For those who have been sleep walking through life in their own little bubble, it will be time to wake up this week.

It is not difficult now-a-days to get into a bubble, as drug and technology addictions tend to create protective separations from life and people.

But during an Eclipse Season, as it is now, status quo stances are broken down and consciousness breakthroughs occur more frequently.

This week, to go along with the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on Friday, Jupiter changes direction and goes Retrograde; Mercury enters Aquarius; and the Sun sextiles Uranus.

That Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is in Aquarius/Leo on Friday February 10 at 7:33 PM EST.  The Sun is therefore in Aquarius, the Moon is in Leo, and both Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aquarius make aspect to that Full Moon.

The old chapter of life will already start to seem like a distant past.

We let you know that this Eclipse Season would bring the first true challenges to the Trump adminstration’s agendas.

And now a judge in Washington state has put a stop to the Trump executive order to put a hold on immigration from certain countries.

It should become more clear than ever this Eclipse Season that the Trump presidency is a big trigger for world change.   It is also a time when more and more people will wake up and be determined to make a difference in this world.

The Aquarius/Leo Lunar Eclipse shows big egos (Leo) facing challenges from the community (Aquarius).

Jupiter and Uranus making aspect to that Lunar Eclipse bring  expansive energy (Jupiter) and transformational breakthroughs (Uranus).

Aquarius also represents a world collective, which will greatly challenge executive control by the USA President (Leo).

Iran already is letting the USA president know it will not bow down to its demands.

President Trump has Leo rising in his natal chart, with Mars in Leo conjunct that rising sign.

Please don’t get me wrong however about the sign Leo.  All people with the sign Leo strongly placed in their natal chart do not develop narcissism.

But they do demand attention.  And they also shine a bright light of hope and positivity.

The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo, and of course quite arguably the Sun is the most important planet in our solar system.  It provides warmth and light and a strong center for all the other planets that revolve around it.

Now if that Sun  had an ego it might look at itself as a great entity more important than all others.  So you can see how big the ego can potentially grow into with the sign Leo.

But if those with strong Leo placements stay in their hearts (which is their natural place) they become creative light and love spread all around.

But if they take their accolades from others into their heads and not their hearts, they can then develop monstrous egos, both positive and negative ones.

Presidents Obama and Clinton are both Sun in Leo people.

So at this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo, balance the needs of social consciousness (Aquarius) with needs for personal importance (Leo).

Keep in mind that Leo is not lesser in value than Aquarius.   Aquarius without Leo would be like a train without an engine, or a body without a heart, or a solar system without a Sun.

The needs of the many are so important, but individual energetic expression provides the fuel for all to be energized.

Jupiter changing directions on Monday this week provides us with expansive, upward moving energy.  It gives us a bigger and more meaningful perspective to life.

Mercury leaving linear logical Capricorn for inventive “outside the box” Aquarius for around a month, provides us the ability to free ourselves from stuck places in our minds.

Mercury moves into Aquarius on Tuesday February 7.

On February 9 the Sun sextiles Uranus.  The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo and Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius.  So the same themes from the Full Moon prevail.

In this case the Sun is the center and Uranus is what shakes up the center.   So expressing oneself as being different and countercultural may be a result of this aspect- as well as a result of the Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo.

The new administration is trying to firm up control by the executive branch of government (Leo).  The congress (Aquarius) is a constitutional counter to that executive power.    And of course  “the people” (Aquarius) of this country are supposed to be the real power of this country.

It is really interesting that the USA natal Moon is at 26 degrees of Aquarius in the 3rd house.  The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse this week is at 22 degrees of Aquarius/Leo, so it is making a strong aspect to the USA  natal Moon.

The Moon in a natal chart represents the inner values, and in the USA we have our constitutional Aquarian values: liberty, freedom of speech, diversity in unity, and the power of the people.

So now President Trump is trying to make himself, as the top executive, the greatest power of the country.  And now the power of the people will challenge that executive power and seek to bring us back to our deeper values.

Remember that America began with a revolution of democratic values(Aquarius) against the King of England (Leo).

President Trump, who has been a powerful business executive, will be continuing to challenge the inner values of the United States by attempting to be a kind of King of America.

This coming August will bring an even more powerful eclipse: A Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo that travels all across America for the first time since 1918.

That Eclipse will be opposite the USA natal moon in Aquarius, even closer than the one this week.  Trump’s natal Mars will be conjunct that very powerful Solar Eclipse.

We will analyze that more as we get closer to August.

For this week, stay poised to move with change and to let go of old patterns and habits.  Old programmed beliefs and attitudes can be let go now and more light from the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius can be let in.

This week those who have planets in Leo and Aquarius will be most affected, and those with planets in Taurus and Scorpio will be largely very affected also.

Till next week,

Leo

Here We Go and Astrology Forecast January.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The early part of this week is mostly about processing what has been happening in our personal lives and in the greater world.   Mercury is now firmly direct and back to its normal speed; and the Moon is in its 4th and last quarter phase of its cycle.

Where are we?  What has been happening to us and our world? The early part of this week will allow us to reflect on all this.

In the greater world we can now stop and feel the reality of a Trump administration and what it means for our world and lives.  The Women’s March right after Trump’s inaugration tells us more about the new reality we are all in now.

We had been experiencing a relatively graceful time period for the last 8 years, during President Obama’s presidential years.

There were many changes, like more recognition and honoring of the LGBT community; a big improvement economically from the housing and employment crashes right before he was elected;  the nuclear deal with Iran; and Obamacare.

There was also great turmoil in the rise of Islamic State; the Arab Spring; Occupy Wall Street; Ferguson Missouri and other examples of police abuse of African Americans; the rise of Russia again; continued economic disparity between rich and all others; terror attacks in America and western civilization, etc.

But most of the time there was little drama or anger or judgmentalness from the top of the Obama Administration.

Some would say there was not enough action taken on important matters like Syria, but nevertheless there was a sense that things would not fall apart and that the “system” would stay intact and functioning.

But now it is time for bigger transformational change, for greater conflict, for a sense that the old world is truly falling apart and a new alternative world being built.

You can see this ripeness for great transformational change by looking more deeply at the Trump administration.

On the one hand he has chosen those who are quite obviously guardians of the Old World like military generals, billionaires, oil barons,  ex Goldman-Sachs executives, etc.

On the other hand he does not fit the mold of traditional USA presidents at all; he shows obvious signs of impulsiveness which could cause events that really shake up our world;  he does not comply with traditional rituals and courtesies that have kept the Old World with structure; he is committed to doing business HIS WAY to a fault; he makes relationship with those who have traditionally been considered enemies; he is looking to tear down programs like Obamacare and the Iran deal; and he is planning on moving the USA Israel center to Jerusalem which would cause great turmoil and conflict in the Middle East.

So you can see some of what is coming: a desire to keep the Old World stronger than ever before- while tearing it down at the same time.

His Gemini twin nature is quite capable of moving in these opposite directions at the same time, in a perverse way aligned with the transformational movement of the Universe.

And “we the people” of this land and western civilization in general are facing a huge transformational change in our world and in our personal lives in the years ahead of us.

We are letting go of that which represents our personal “Old World” while letting in the light of our personal “New World”.

Relationships, homes, careers, and especially belief sytems that are connected to the old world paradigm will be released.

The Universe and our deeper Souls will be unfolding to us our new lives, our new beliefs and atttitudes aligned with the New World we have entered.

And of course in the bigger picture we are being transformed to align with the Age of Aquarius and its paradigm for our evolution.

This New Chapter of our lives, lasting the next few years, will not be as graceful as the last 8 years have been.

The Election between Trump and Clinton showed us the immense split in our country. It showed nastiness and character assassination; narcissism that precludes the ability to empathize with others and other ways of being; and a fight or competition that is ruthless and without true consideration for the welfare of the community.

We are at the same time being awakened to beliefs and attitudes that will help each of us to evolve into a Truth and Love, Diversity within Unity world, where win/win is the result intended in all conflicts and competitions.

The self actualization into our authentic selves will be combined with our intentions to be in meaningful relationship with others; and to contribute to our human community while healing our Earth and making greater connection to the Universe.

These are powerful times now, and we must be ready.

This week we concentrate on reflecting and processing until Friday January 27 at 7:07 PM EST.

That is the time of the New Moon in Aquarius, which also is the time of the beginning of the Chinese New Year of the Rooster.

Early on the next day the 28th, action oriented Mars moves out of go-with-the-flow Pisces and enters forceful and active Aries.

So late this week we get the “go sign” and start the New Era.  That New Moon in Aquarius will also begin the Eclipse Season, one that will show us a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10; then a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

So the go sign is strong and changes will happen fast especially in the world at large.   President Trump will be making decisions that try to undo some of the accomplishments of the last 8 years and before.

People will begin to forcefully oppose these decisions and movements at the same time.

Transformational Change is breaking open.

On a personal level the Aquarius New Moon on the 27th,  that opens the portals for the Eclipse Season, shows us Aquarian traits.

So we will be prompted to find and honor our distinctive and individualized self, even if we feel we are different or weird.

And at the same time we will have doors opened for finding our soul families.    Birds of a Feather want to flock together now.

Finding your individual truth will help you to find your soul groups.

If you continue to be what others expect or want from you, or what you think you should be; then you will not know where you truly belong. But now you have the opportunity to begin to change that old way.

So get ready to begin the New Chapter adventure.  It is Time.

Till next week,

Leo

Entering a New Chapter of Life and Astrology Forecast January 15-21.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we come down from the strong Cardinal Grand Cross Full Moon in Cancer last Thursday January 12.

But only one “leg” of the Grand Cross has left the powerful configuration, that being the Full Moon in Cancer.  The 3 legs that remain make a Cardinal T-square formation which has us pulled in 3 different directions instead of 4.

It is comprised of Jupiter in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn, and Uranus in Aries.  It will continue to be effective until late April, when the”orb” or distance between the planets gets too wide to be pertinent.

This T-square, still a very important configuration, will affect everyone to some degree; but its greatest impression will be with people who have planets in the middle to late degrees of cardinal signs:  Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.

This emphasis on cardinal signs, which are the signs at the beginnings of seasons, at the Solstices and Equinoxes, suggests we are moving into important times of New Beginnings.

Uranus in Aries suggests we are breaking out of an old way of being and empowering ourselves; Jupiter in Libra suggests a higher value of fairness and being relational; Pluto in Capricorn suggests we are transforming out of old soul-dead structures, and in the process of creating new ones.

Since those planetary placements form a T-square, what each placement represents is at odds with each other placement.

So it may be quite difficult to be free of old ways in a self empowering manner (Uranus in Aries), while at the same time able to be in meaningful relationship (Jupiter in Libra).  Or it may be difficult to break down and release old security structures (Pluto in Capricorn) and still be fair minded and balanced (Jupiter in Libra).

We are being pulled in different directions and it is challenging to stay centered.  It is best not to try too hard, and instead surrender to the process with trust in yourself and the Universe.

Also now all planets are going Direct until February 6, when Jupiter goes retrograde.  All planets Direct is a somewhat rare occurrence, and it also suggests we are moving forward into new beginnings.

On a global scale the Inauguration of Donald Trump is happening on January 20, and on the next day there is a Million Woman March on Washington DC as well as on state capitols and cities around the country.

This new era shows us a huge division between different cultures and ways of life in the USA and also in the greater world.

I believe we are about to go through a big storm that will shake things up in a big way over the next few years.

This storm will clear the way for the Age of Aquarius. For humanity it will separate the “wheat from the chaff” in an evolutionary process.

And it will open portals for more light to shine through so we can have a world of Diversity within Unity, a world run by Love and Truth, and a knowing the Universe is a place inside each of us that has all the dots connected in greater meaning.

We were born to be alive at this important time in human evolution on Planet Earth.  So find your role and place in it, and trust the Soul’s process.

Later this coming week there are planetary shifts that show us a turning point.

On Thursday January 19 the Sun moves into Aquarius, while the 4th quarter Moon in Scorpio squares it.

This signifies a movement into a greater darkening of the light of the Moon.  The Sun is shining in Aquarius while the Moon is showing us more darkness in Scorpio.

On the same day Mars in Pisces will be met with difficulty from Saturn in Sagittarius. Mars in Pisces seeks unity in deeper consciousness, and that will be inhibited by Saturn showing us what is happening in reality.

These events on the 19th open the way for the Inauguration on the 20th and the Million Woman March on the 21st.  These events represent the Sun square the Moon for sure, but also Mars square Saturn as unity is blocked by our current reality.

When this 4th Quarter phase of the lunar cycle is completed, we will experience a New Moon in Aquarius on January 27.

That New Moon in Aquarius will show us the first winds blowing in from the coming eclipses in February.

So we can consider Eclipse Season beginning on January 27, setting us up for the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10 and the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

Much will be shaken up during this coming Eclipse Season.  Change and transformation will be pushing through the blocks and impediments in our consciousness and belief systems.

This force will crack open what is stuck, so we can change our lives according to our Soul’s intentions.

In the greater world, the new Trump administration will experience during Eclipse Season  its first great challenges to what it intends to do.

And each of us will need to adjust to this New Chapter in our personal and global lives.

The Trump administration facing powerful backlash to its intentions is an integral part of this New Global Chapter of our lives.

And each of us will be challenged in this New Chapter to stay on our spiritual paths with our deeper values.

We cannot let the increasing darkness in world affairs sweep us into fear and hatred.

We must keep our trust in our deeper souls and the Universe, and our belief we are evolving into an Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo
